considering the Devs have said the map would be primarily islands, i think this concept could be applied to boats, especially being able to craft canoes and paddles as well as build floating houses and rafts, I would like to see a floating community since we cannot build our own houses, which creates limited real estate.

This is an extraordinary idea like maybe say with a box truck you could build a mobile base inside the truck!
Hey that's my idea! In my thread! :mad:

If anybody has some ideas for extra vehicle modifications such as armour options and vehicle performance enhancers like specific engine parts or body kits or whatever, so that there is just generally more to do in the game if you already have all the best items, just add ideas to this thread.

Generally, the mods want individual fleshed out ideas as threads without more ideas being added in the bottom or comments. It works like:
I suggest a specific modification, what it does, how to make it, etc, then I name the thread after it, and finally people comment on it and give input to that specific idea.

I made this thread because there weren't many people making threads on ideas for modifications, most of them were for certain vehicles.

this is a list of accessories that would be useful in the event of an apocalyptic situation in my opinion


truck ladder rack
+ carries ladders and lumber without taking up bed space
- increased roll chance and slight loss in fuel economy


front bumper gaurd (ranch hand guard)
+ protects vehicle from minor impact (running over zombies)
- severly decreased fuel economy


tool box
+ lockable storage for items
- take up bed cargo space


truck bed cover
+lockable storage
- no cargo space, not compatible with ladder rack or tool box or


truck camper
+ place to store items and sleep
- huge impact on fuel economy and horsepower, severe rolling increase, no cargo space in bed of truck, no power or water


front hitch attachment
+ able to pull trailers while backing up (for maneuvering them easier), supports hitch carrier
- not compatible with front bumper gaurd


hitch carrier
+ adds cargo space to any place a hitch is mounted
- cannot carry much, can damage hitch or loose items if wrecked


small hitch attachment
+ can be mounted on cars to carry light loads
- really light loads maybe just the empty trailer


bumper stickers
+ who doesn't love bumper stickers
- that one guy who kills you for having it

this actually looks pretty cool and give people a little extra custom to their car but idk it might just make trucks op so no one will want to drive anything else

Ya, I like a lot of these ideas, although a lot of them do the same thing, which is store equipment. While I like diversity I don't think there should be this many different ways to store things on your truck. Maybe all these could be added on later in development but I would be fine with just one of these ideas. Good Post!
