I’ve raided 5 houses so far and found not a single broom, which should be a common household product in real life and available in every house.
What is the explanation for such a low number of items in houses? Each has 10-20 clothes in pristine condition. Why are they in pristine condition? And why such a low amount of clothes?
Things that are missing:
- dozens of ceramic plates and cups
- a few computers (with so many EVs on the road we must be in 2030 already).
- ceiling lights (option to plug in an external power supply to power all the appliances?)
- nearly every house should have a stove, oven, dishwasher, laundry machine, refrigerator
- some form of water heater in a bathroom that has a bathtub or shower, or a water heater elsewhere in the house
- more non-perisheable food (pasta? Where is my pasta?!)
- more disposable batteries (I have 5 disposables so far and half of them were from vehicles). Each home should have like 10-20 in various remotes, alarms, clocks, drawers, etc (even some in a rubbish bin?)
- Loads of paper.
Onto garages. Not far from my starting shelter I found a gas pump with an attached garage - with 2 motorbikes inside. It appears to be some kind of a workshop.
However, in this workshop, apart from jacks, welding googles, welding tank and a electric polisher, I found no items one would usually expect in a workshop:
- Wrenches. Lots and lots of wrenches (100+). Same with pliers
- arc welders + batteries + a serious battery charger
- acetylene torches + gas
- Lifting tools.
There was also no toilet. There should have been a toilet and a shower, so mechanics can wash themselves.
All in all, I can understand if things that are valuable for immediate survival get taken by people fleeing, like food. But not other bulky heavy things (brooms) and not if these people exist as zombies around, anyway (meaning the items should be on or near them).
I’m also perplexed as to why so many vehicles have faulty engines.
