Hello Zomboiders of Kentucky and environs! This week’s primary development will be the IWBUMS public beta release of a build that’s chock full of engine improvements and the improved memory-saving light system. It will also include the current iteration of our revamped food system that we feel needs more feedback than its current separate public branch provides, despite its excellent brigade of dedicated culinary community explorers who’ve been so helpful during its teething tests.
This IWBUMS beta is currently being held in a holding pattern as we’re in the process of upgrading our forums to their new form and, most necessarily, installing Connall’s new bug tracker. Everything is now live, but we really want to make sure everything is ticking over nicely before introducing a new build with a pile of new bugs to report.
If we release mid/end of the week we can also get some more tweaks and fixes in from Turbo and EasyPickins in there too, so we’ve decided to hold it back rather than throw it out there just because it’s a Monday.
Meanwhile, Turbo’s WordZed 2.0 utility is approaching completion (though he may well have time quickly fix up the new in-house hifi systems with the TV/Radio system before release), while the WIP build of Creative Mode has seen a lot of updates to cater for the aforementioned Secret Mission – the content of which will soon become clear.
Finally for today, after garnering far more attention than was perhaps anticipated last week… the revamped food system’s sliced ham icon looks far less like a penis.

The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to point earnestly in the general direction of the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send blogs like this and patch notes direct to your mailbox. We also live on Twitter here! The CBOIT would also like to indicate that NasKo and Undust4able are looking for feedback on their new PZ Subrebbit theme, and wanted to nudge your attention there too. Laters!
