Con, did you fix the path finding for survivors? In maps like "ware house" when you try to click on an item to search, 50% of the time the survivor doesnt move UNLESS you move him INFRONT of the item you want to search. What im trying to say is that in the warehouse map the tall storage shelves decline the path finding ability

Also move closer to the object you want to search, sometimes clicking a spot close to the searchable object and then selecting the actual object while your survivor is moving works too.

yea ive been having that problem in warehouse myself. its weird that the survivors sometimes wont accept hte command to move to some objects to search. you have to like click them out in the open and click back that same object you were clicking on before they actually start moving towards that object to scanvenge

You can check the version number in the bottom left during loading. You should get the new one with having to clear your cache.

Its a sweet game, but the update hasn't gone through for me just yet, I'll try resetting my facebook, signing in and out, and perhaps it shall work then, lol, if not, I'll give it time. I'm a fly tyer, I've got patience in spades. Take your time working on the game, Con, so you don't have to fix the bugs later!!... Well, not as much :P

Give it a few minutes can take a while for Facebook to propagate changes to the canvas. Clear your cache and wait is all we can say - it'll turn up eventually.

I like that the recon is now a range focused class.
Makes much more sense than melee due to their low HP.
If only they can evade attacks using their speed attribute
only then could they be considered fit for melee combat.

You can't . It's a program side issue. Your computer is using a lot of it's processing power thinking about and rendering your countdown numbers and your damage/xp numbers and high level graphics, which means your command inputs and the rendering of those commands is getting stuck in your buffer.

Also FB eats a lot of processor time.

It will be resolved when Con makes a version of the game with graphics options for those of us without RISK Processors and gigabytes of RAM.

Just a note about updates guys - you actually need to leave the game (ie. refresh the page or close your tab/browser), and in some cases clear your cache, before the changes will take effect.

For major updates, like this one, the changes SHOULD come through on your next refresh, without having to clear your cache. For minor updates, these should also just work on refresh, however sometimes they may not.

If you see any threads like this one (Changelog - vx.xx), you should leave the game and check the version number in the bottom left of the loading screen matches up to the version number stated in the change log (during the CONNECTING TO SERVER phase).

Is it possible to make a "Recycle all" button? Having to click 3 times to recycle 1 item is still ok, but repeating it 9 times is tiring.

Also, could you give us a rough estimate of when crafting will become available?

I think it's on purpose. it's meant to keep you busy while waiting for your mission timers to click over.

:( I see a lot of new great features con, but could you have a look at my thread here

I'm hunting down all the suggestions you answer for users to know whats coming for future updates and not to suggest the same thing over and over in the forums.

What counts as a Production Building?
What counts as looted?
Will there be some form of indication of this on the map in the future?

1. Vegetable Garden, Water Collector and the Drop Offs.
2. Worded badly by me - meant when they're looted the attacker can only take 50% of what's remaining.
3. Indication of what on which map?

Question 3 came about due to complete lack of sleep. Reading it now makes no sense whatsoever. I'm trying to figure out what I was asking right now as well.

I dunno, but changing Recon's role made the fighter useless.

I mean, it is smarter to just have a high mobility team than ones that are slow, and take damage.

And it is too late to change it

Never too late.

Recon's have quite low health. This will even out in the future as we're looking to make some adjustments to how weapons behave at different ranges. Long rifles for instance will be far less effective at close range.

Useless is a strong word.

....Hasn't made my fighters useless. Course, my fighters are higher level than my recon. But I find that when getting swarmed; there is no substitute for a full auto weapon. And honestly, if your fighters are taking damage....I'd say you are doing it wrong. I send my fighter and a scavenger in to an area same, or 1 level higher and they always walk out without a scratch. 2 or 3 levels higher, I an additional survivor...recon or fighter.

Honestly ive found in lvl 16 areas that if you have 3 fighters and a high lvl leader with most his points in weapons equipped with good long range guns you can clear about anything before it ever gets near you.

I've done that.

But I've always thought Recons as the modern ninjas.

I mean, look at him. He looks awesome when you see him carry his weapon.

Very intresting changes although i wanted to ask something about Leaders and recons that hasnt been cleared.....My leader is Recon focused although it only says that the recon stat on a leader gives movement speed + trap spotting and dissarming.Is this correct?I mean doesnt each stat make a standalone class with the advantages and disadvantages?The stats that worry me are fighting and recon.I have fighting on 14 while recon on 27.Does that mean that he is not good at ranged combat?Kinda confused on this one and i would like a clear answer.

Leader skills are not the same as the individual classes.
The leader skill of fighting controls your leader's ability to use all weapons except improvised weapons.
The skill of engineer controls their skill in using improvised weapons, and whatever else is yet to be implemented.

These are the only two that have any relation to combat skills that i am aware of.

The Recon leader skill is only going to give your leader the faster movement speed and additional stuff that is not yet implemented. It does not have any bearing on their fighting ability.

Just like the Medic skill only improves my leader's healing ability. It doesn't make him a worse combatant.

I wonder will the recent changes mean the Recon skill will effect the Leader's ability to use Long (Sniper) Rifles?

No. Because that is a weapon specialization. The leader does not get weapon specializations.
