    Anyone else miss looting zombie corpses?

    As the title says I am just wondering if anyone else misses zombie corpse loot?

    I miss them sometimes. It was nice to see hundreds of them all scattered around your base after a horde night.

    Cleaning up didnít bother me as is claimed to be one of the reasons for removal.

    What bothered me a lot about those was just how ugly they were. You would kill a cheerleader and a moment later she turns into a cartoony version of a bald male corpse thatís been decaying for years with its limbs folded like a towel. Not just ugly in graphics, but also in physics. They would sit on top of spikes all perfectly horizontal like they were flattened pieces of wood or something.

    Unfortunately they still use that hideous thing in some POIs.

      Yea I do in some cases/ I miss it as Atomic sais, after horde night. It was cool to see the area filled with the remains aftr and cleanup was pretty quick an easy. I don't miss it in POI's tho. That would be a real pita now in the dungeons.

        Totally miss them. I found it therapeutic going around getting rid of them after horde night. Wish they had just upgraded the model rather than getting rid of them. Rag doll corpses would have been awesome.

          I missed looting them when they actually carried something that was worth looting. The last alpha where you could still loot them they had nothing worth it.

            A thousand times no! ;-)

            Strictly imho of course, but the new system is massively better than the old one. Infrequent, easily seen, long lasting loot bags that have a higher chance of actually dropping something I want, as opposed to frantically "opening up" every single zombie corpse to loot a stick or a piece of grass is a big gain in my book.

              So do not miss looting corpses!! I hated having to spend ages looting and cleaning up the bodies around my base after a horde night. So glad they took that out

                Yup, this sums up my feelings exactly. It has been one of the most welcome changes to come back to after being away for awhile!

                  I kind of miss it.
                  I rather like how Zomboid and CDDA do it. Everything has some form of gear, but it may be ruined, rotten, bloody, disease riddled, or just not fit well, so it may bring penalties with it. You may have to use it, for lack of anything else, but it would bring penalties with its bonuses.

                  Makes finding something in good shape that fits very rewarding and something you want to maintain and treasure.

                  Those are survival games, though. I think 7 Days is heading more in an action direction. Which I have no problems with. There's room in my heart for both survival and action games.

                    I am currently lvl 88. 3800+ Z'kills... I've seen maybe 10 lootbags, maybe 20 if I forgot some.
                    And the best thing I got was like lvl 3 ak and maybe some bullets. But honestly, not worth looking in most of the time (sometimes a few dukes but mostly just jars of water and uninteresting stuff)

                    It should be more frequent and the rewards should always be SOMETHING useful.
                    Ammo for military zombies, mechanical/electrical parts for workers, health items for nurses
                    But if I find another dropped lootbag with water, paper of ONE NORMAL BANDAGE in it, I will rip it apart xD

                    I liked the looting although I don't miss going through every corpse and finding nothing of interest. So I think if the drops were more frequent (1/10-1/30) and the loot was a bit more interesting, I would absolutely miss nothing. Only the bones from cutting them open is a thorn in my eye

                      I miss the giant ugly gore blocks they made. It was cool as hell having a meat obelisk block the door. They also generated heat so if you did not clean them up fast enough, they would attract scout zombies. Apparently i am in a small minority of people that liked that mechanic.

                      The themed zombie loot was neat. Hunting down businessmen for money, nurses for antibiotics, and cops for gun parts added a level to looting. The improved loot in the loot drops makes up for this being taken out.

                        Yes, the buildup of gore method was pretty cool.
                        I was mainly talking about the simple container torsos of A16 that instead just destroyed themselves when piling on top of each other.

                            Hmm, odd, cause I'll about that many lootbags than that from a single blood moon horde. Easily.

                              I miss hunting the feral wights on horde night as they dropped the good stuff.😁
