[quote=“Coolthulhu, post:2, topic:9775”][quote=“deoxy, post:1, topic:9775”]-non-zombie aggro to the player is broken. Most non-zombie things either don’t attack me EVER (manhacks), or only attack back or VERY VERY rarely first. Killing ants doesn’t make the other ants come after me, and I can butcher ants surrounded by ants, no problem. Spiders,wasps, and bees are the same (though I haven’t tried a black-widow house/basement in this one, so there’s that). Bears and moose seem to be the only exception, and even they are incredibly tame compared to before. Zombies attack everything, and animals attack other animals and zombies just fine.
-the new corrosive zombies glow, but the huge boomers don’t. I suspect this is backwards.[/quote]
Non-zombie aggro was broken few days ago, fixed now. The bug affected all monsters that can’t bash.
Huge boomers are supposed not to glow. Notice that their goo on the ground doesn’t glow either and wearing environmental protection on biled body parts protects you from glowing.
Rationale is that the bile only glows in contact with human (mammal? living?) skin. And from gameplay perspective that the huge boomer would simply be far too weak if it couldn’t even rely on surprise.
Corrosive zed shines mostly because of the ranged attack. Trying to figure out where is this damage coming from could be quite annoying.[/quote]
Secondly, the environmental part must not work - glowing = glowing, and nothing I’ve found protects against it - survivor gear, gas mask, rain coat, whatever. They are, hands down, the most dangerous zombie in the game right now, as you can’t tell where they are until they are close enough to glow you, and then EVERYTHING comes at you, even more than during the day, as they can ONLY see you, not any other creatures.
The corrosive zombies are only about as annoying as regular spitters - they can only spit at you if they can see you, same as spitters, and if they can see you (when you’re not glowing), then you can see them. Seriously, they really don’t bother me any more than spitters, just with different flavor (which is very nice, of course).
Huge boomers make FAR more sense to glow since they, you know, GLOW (their description says they are leaking the stuff).
