  1. Good, kinetic melee combat! Lots of depth when it comes to vehicles and their customization. Careful attention in seeing that unsatisfying "make-work" is minimalized.
  2. The orginal The original version of the C7, which is contemporary to the M16A2, featured an A1 style carry handle and sight with A2 style furniture. You can find nearly all types of AR-15 type rifles in Canada, but the C7 is Canadian military and police issue, as well as available on the civilian market.
  3. Soft body armor is usually only good against non armor piercing pistol caliber rounds, and not even all of them. However there are ballistic armor plates that will stop serious rifle rounds, which can be used in conjunction with soft body armor. The downside to plate armor setups is that they are usually kind of encumbering and typically only cover a limited area, ranging from just the heart area up to maybe the front of the torso, although there are some setups with more coverage. Just like soft body armor, ballistic plate armor isn't all that common but anyone who looks for it should be able to find some.
  4. A lot of soft body armor these days can take multiple hits to the same location and stop rounds above what they're rated for, thanks to decades of steady improvements in ballistic materials. As far as availability goes, soft body armor is not particularly common in Alberta but there is enough of it around that anyone that's looking for it should be able to find it.

    Rural Alberta is largely ideal horse country and it would seem strange to not include them IMO. As far as horse feed goes, if you can't find it there, it's probably because you've become a zombie...
  6. It would be tough to starve to death for most of the year in the real Alberta, edible plants and easy hunting everywhere, heck I've seen a family of deer pass within arm's length on a trail! Winter would be a different story though.
  7. More than anything, rewarding gameplay, where you've got real depth but are not constantly bogged down by tedious micromanagement and make-work.
  8. I don't know if an RV would be all that great as a standalone living solution, but it'd be great as a component of a regular base setup, that you can drive off with if the situation calls for.
  9. Horde influx: some event causes a large number of infected from outside the region to move into the area. Perhaps a large survivor colony or convoy has recently succumbed to infection?
  10. Another vote for satisfying melee modelling, both in terms of hit detection and also the dynamics of the weapons themselves. So many make melee seem like an awkward afterthought, and there's so much room to raise the bar.
  11. I'd like to see survivors "break" and flee from combat where the odds are clearly against them, depending on context. Realistically, folks in survival situations where outside assistance and decent medical attention are unlikely, and a single wound may result in a drawn out death, tend to be fairly risk adverse unless there's a lot at stake.
  12. There are a respectable amount of physical shops and online businesses that sell swords and other dedicated melee weapons in Canada, so there must be a reasonable demand for them. However I think if you searched most Canadian homes you'd find a lot more combat suitable firearms than you would high quality melee weapons.
  13. I've seen long stretches of active track that were considerably more neglected, sometimes to the point where it was difficult to even make out the rails when riding in the locomotive. And yes, most of the really neglected track is located in less accessible places where they are less likely to be photographed.
  14. The amount of dirt appears realistic to me, trackage in North America tends to be maintained a lot less regularly than is the case in Europe, and you'll often see a significant amount of debris and vegetation buildup, with some places appearing almost derelict. Given the vast distances out here involved it's just not plausible to maintain the lines to the same standard.
  15. Yeah but it gets freakin' cold without heating. I once experienced a 10 day power failure in the middle of winter and it soon got to the point where I ended up with big icicles hanging inside my apartment, and all my food and beverage items were frozen solid and useless. It was so cold in there that I ended up having to sleep in a heavy sleeping bag inside of a makeshift tent in the middle of my living room. Then consider that it doesn't get nearly as cold where I live as it does in Alberta. Unless the Zeds are superhumanly resistant to the effects of deep cold, or at least are smart enough to build warm "nests", they're probably going to turn into Zedsicles.
