Now I can't really say too much about churches themselves because I don't go to them personally, but think about it. How fun would it be to find yourself on the run from the zombies and you come across an abandoned church? What was once a place for prayer and seeking forgiveness, is now just another building to be fortified and hide within in hopes to avoid the quote unquote satanic creatures wandering outside. There'd be that underlying discomfort perhaps for the player knowing that they're hiding out and wielding weapons in a holy place, but really in the zombie apocalypse all bets and beliefs are out the window.

The main room where those sit down to pray and listen to the preacher would be the primary room that you use to stay in. It's big, plenty of light seeping in from all sides, and has enough room for a dozen plus individuals to stay. It'd be one of the bigger safe zones in the world. There'd probably be a bunch of backrooms as well with supplies, maybe not ammunition or anything, but there could be some food and little loose ends to utilize in crafting.

Just a thought. Sorry if I can't really display my thoughts about this suggestion as well as I'd like. 1 in the morning, been sick for four days, I'm just rolling with what comes to mind before I feel under the weather again. xD

I like it, maybe is the church was borded up so you can see people have also tried to hold of the undead force but failed, maybe blood over the floors and walls?

Personally I prefer the second one chap!

agreed,looks more run down/overrun and hastily boarded up,would be cool to have to clear the building out of debris etc before making it habitable,thus encouraging ppl to work together to clear large buildings.

When clearing the building the stuff you collect can be used to craft fortifications .ect. But yes, if it encourages teamwork that's a plus!

I kinda see what your getting at and im not sure if people have suggested it or not i think this was another its been so popular in zombie games its always a given that a church was going to be in game but id say sure but has to have a bell tower you can get back online so you can ring it say you get attacked or just offering new players help ring it so they know your there or to attract more zeds for your bandits trying to kill you

I'd just like the see them in game because they are in about every city or town anywhere you go, so it just makes sense to have a few scattered around in the game.

I mean I understand why the developers don't want to implement them (IF they don't I have no idea) there will probably be a crapton of discussion about it.

^ This +1 /w a ring-able bell that could be heard from quite a distance, to signal friendlies and attract the hordes.

Go to the church, avoid the church, help/trade with the signaler, kill the signaler, set traps/distractions to kill others as the signaler
great for creating all types of situations.

How about no main church? Since the map is going to be Islands each island can have a church or two?

Well, that is what I'm kind of hoping to deter, not that I'll need to go to church.

Golly! Better dash!

It would be a fantastic gathering place for post apocalyptic religious nuts, believing in a new Messiah. Or devil worship.

I could defo see a clan of nut jobs taking over and barricading an old church :)
