I'm getting worried that my cemetery's fence won't hold out against the Day 7 horde, let alone anything larger, lol. Every night it seems like a zombie is determined to sit outside for half the night just beating on ****, and in the morning I have to repair six or seven blocks of the concrete foundation. Then one day a random midday horde roamed through and broke in my door before I even knew where the sound was coming from, but they just forgot about me a minute later, went around the fence, and disappeared over the horizon.Smerg wrote:The secondary goal of this long-term looting trip's a tad cheaty, and that is that I'm hoping to weather the Day 42 horde, which most forums seem to think is the most dangerous, away from my primary base.
I'm digging a trench too, but mine is filled with the big log spikes, which I like because they can be upgraded to give them an extra life. My ultimate goal is to surround my base like that for a secondary defense while layers of the more disposable spikes act as the initial deterrent. Beyond that, I have no idea how to defend myself. I still haven't found a city, so I still don't have a reliable source of canned food, scrap metal, or guns.
The only thing I have going for me right now is my huge track of flat, fenced-in, arable land, but I'm extremely low on seeds. My guess is that the next two or three harvests will need to be put right back into the ground as seeds for me to make a garden I can live on, but I don't have enough food stocked for waiting that long. Hunting can only work for so long because a whole deer can feed me for all of one damn day. I NEED TO FIND MORE THAN BURNED DOWN SHACKS
