Home Tips

Crowbars

  1. Crowbars can pull up floor boards so you can replace your icky, uneven, floor-boards.
  2. (Useful) If your windows broken from a zed seeing you through it and deciding to get up to some mischief, you can use the crowbar to pry windows off other houses (chance of breaking window vary’s from carpentry level).

Rain Collectors

If you have a pipe wrench, rain collector, sink, and a second story, (has to not have roof above it).
First you need to place the rain collector above the sink but on a second story, then you have to go up to the sink and select plumbing to hook it up to the rain collector.

Car Tips

Genuine Tips

  • If you use the E key while in a car, it act’s like mint condition breaks. But be warned, if you do this randomly in the middle of a horde, it just about prioritizes you getting out of the car, so you may die.
  • If you hold V while inside the car you can turn the heater on, pop a c-d in, or listen to some tunes on the radio.
  • If you go to the front and check under the hood, you can see what model the car is, how much gas is in the fuel tank, and the condition of the car.
