    In preparation of the upcoming 0.49 build, which will bring item persistence, but also weather effects, in other words the weather having influence on your characters well being, so I started looking for some info on the latter. I came across two excellent guides, based on the experimental version of 0.49, explaining hyper- and hypothermia. Looks like we'll be in for some micromanaging fun when it comes to wearing clothing. Keep in mind though that in the experimental build, the speed at which you reach hyper/hopthermia was increased for testing purposes, so in a stable build you'll have to do less managing in this areas then in experimental.

    Great thread Shilka and some pretty interesting information in there to be sure.

    It will be really challenging to come in as a new spawn with nothing if you happen to spawn in the rain as I have a few times now. It could be you get quite cold quite fast if you're not careful.

    It's too bad that running doesn't increase body temperature but I guess I can understand that given how long a few zombies can chase a player. I still think that value needs to be addressed slightly because zombies can chase you forever even after they've lost line of sight.

    Stickied.

    .59 Stable released just hours ago. They've had some setbacks the last 6 months, things taking longer than they figured but nonetheless things coming along quite well. I jumped on for a couple hours last night before the update and the game feels much smoother... not as much stutter it seems. Some nice additions in .59 and some real nice things coming, like this. I mean, this is just beautiful.

    That looks pretty neat. I may have to reinstall it and give it a shot.
