After nearly 30 hours of gameplay without a wrench or sewing kit, I decided to throw caution to the wind and drove out to do a night time raid of the hardware superstore.
I was prepared for a long slog, with nasty beasts that could kill me around every corner. I crafted holsters and sheaths to store all kinds of extra weapons, mod’d all my ranged weapons, packed my car, and headed out.
The 5th zombie I killed trying to clear the driveway had a wrench on him. The 6th one had a sewing kit.
Does anyone know if there is specific coding for ironic loot drops? Or is it entirely CPU dependent?
Anyway, I celebrated for the night, drinking out of the BARREL OF SINGLE MALT WHISKEY that I found, and spent the morning driving arounds to all the car parts I had identified over the course of the game to pick them up.
Then I got to work merging the Solar Car with the Security Van to make my mobile armored workstation – only to realize AFTER taking them all off that the upgraded solar panels require Mech 6, not 4, to install. I guess I should have cut up the security van and welded it to the outside of the solar car, instead of trying to solder the solar car to the top of the Security Van.
Ah, well. There’s another Solar car missing it’s wheels on the highway headed to the superstore.
