    What’s better than the day of an update? Only the day of a nice and massive update. And the good news for those who like to break things down, craft, build, upgrade characters, search, loot and simply run around the locations - is that this update is for you.

    Let’s start with the house. We’ve added a recycler that processes accumulated waste on your bases. We understand the temptation to loot everything that caught the eyes of experienced survivors and how hard it is not to turn your base into a dump. The very thought of throwing even completely worthless stuff, obtained in battles with zombies makes the heart ache. The recycler will prevent you from making terrible sacrifices and allow you to take unnecessary things apart to get useful resources and even rare items. The function of stripping weapons for parts is now also transferred to the recycler, since the Gunsmith workbench is temporarily unavailable due to changing its functions.

    2018-04-26 09.04.32.png

    Another important change is that we have updated a part of recipes, so crafting of some items now requires unique parts, which can be obtained only with the use of the recycler. What great motivation to clean up the house, sort out your junk and get valuable resources, isn’t it?

    2018-04-26 09.07.47.png

    At some locations you could have noticed rusty vehicles. Pay attention, for now you can loot some of them and find an engine inside. You may be wondering what value it holds. Having disassembled it with the recycler, you can get unique resources. The important thing is that dragging an engine away without a Chopper is impossible. Another, even more important thing is that there are two types of engines containing different kinds of resources.

    2018-04-26 09.03.42.png

    And now the most interesting part - the mechanics of exploring locations has been changed completely. You’ve told us a great many times how tired you are of clearing locations and that the whole process has become a routine. Right, we do read your feedback a lot and often, while having breakfast, dinner, before going to sleep, and community managers are doing it non-stop. Brave adventurers trying to loot everything they can and explore every corner of the post-apocalyptic world - your efforts will be rewarded! Now you don’t just hunt for loot and fight, but also earn points for exploring the area. These points are required to upgrade your character’s skills. With every new level reached, you will be awarded with points to spend on upgrading of active and passive skills, and in the future - on new recipes and blueprints.

    2018-04-26 09.02.53.png

    By the way, we have completely redesigned the buff section. In the inventory you can find the list of all abilities, both active and passive. For example, this is what the active skills tab looks like:

    2018-04-26 09.01.48.png

    You can set the necessary skill from the left column by clicking the left button or the right one if you choose a skill from the right column. Don’t forget that some active skills have cooldown.

    In view of the new mechanics the location entrance window has also changed - now it shows progress of a research and skills you can gain. Skills differ depending on the type of location: in raid locations you can learn to reduce the noise level, in forest - and stone ones there is a possibility for your character to get an extra quick access slot and increased growth of resources, or to learn how to roll, automatically heal themselves and even zoom out the map to look around. And this is hardly a complete list. The most attentive players will be able to find journals of survivors that are rarely found in locations, but they give more exploration experience for every territory.

    2018-04-26 09.01.01.png

    We would also like to draw your attention to two new skills - Motorcycle driver and Cold survival. Those, who have already assembled the Chopper, have the skill learned, while for the rest, who want to ride a bike and walk around the winter location, it will take some work close to recruit training. It’s not nearly as hard as getting a gas tank though, so don’t panic ahead of time.

    And this brings us back to the subject of your feedback. Since the Chopper was added, the chance of the gas tank drop was increased three times. However many of survivors still haven’t managed to get that valuable item yet. For this reason we are going to increase the chance of drop. Double it. For red coupons. Good luck, fellows.

    It’s all for today! We wish you to upgrade characters asap, when we meanwhile continue working on the next update. Dear iOS users, the update will be available in the App Store in 2-3 days. Thank you for attention!

    I'm recycling my fourth item right now, so far I've only gotten some scrapmetal.
    As for the skills.. Really liking this allthough you should be really patient. It will take a lot of grinding to get all those skills.
    But hey, at least it's giving you something worthwile when grinding.

    Nice update! the game just keeps getting better and better... except for the slight lagging of the game... the game was smooth in my device (vivo) before 1.8.2, its not really a major problem. just hoping for a follow up optimization update ( if its a thing... haha) .. anybody experiencing the same(the slight lag)?... or just me?

    Agreed.....good update. Adds an extra element to grinding that makes it all much more interesting.
    Already got a couple of skillpoints. One in neat freak, the other in iron miner. It's gonna be great collecting and building up all the various skills.

    I’m excited about the extra pocket BUT
    You can only use it when exploring the “ mountain region”?
    What mountain region?
    Am I reading this right?

    You get a chance to get the perk while farming in all three rock zones. The pocket is permanent, and can be used in any zone forever.

    I think it just means that you open chests faster, which can be an advantage in dangerous zones. It's a passive skill so you don't have to activiate it to use it.

    I need more recyclers, one isn’t cutting it. I have max first and second level chests all filled to the max. I will say at least half are filled with items to recycle.
