Idea: spray paint cans.
You can only find these cans rarely in houses or garages, they could come 1/4 full or more at a time, there is also a way to refill them

Usage: the spray paint cans can be used to free hand spray paint you vehicle or certain objects or walls (this would be to stop massive grafting on every surface in the game). You could paint the side of you house and write in red spray, KOS (kill on sight) if trespassing. This will give by passing players a clear view to stay out or if there blood thirsty a way of knowing that these survivors will be a challenge. Another example is you could spray markers on tree trunks and make a trail which could lead to a secret base. (To make this tool not op it would need to be very rare and hard to refill, only refilling 1/4 at a time)

Location to find them: houses or garages

Refill recipe:

4 acrylic paint (depends on what color) give that it is very hard to find
2 water bottles
1 empty spray paint can

Tools:
Knife
Bike pump (to create pressure for the can)

Description: just shake and spray. Use it wisely for there not much left in the world

Might make a 3D model

We have discussed, markings or being able to create signs and mark paper with text. If you watch the first video as we near the garage you'll notice some markings on the side of it. These are known as "hobo notes" this was our original idea for players to communicate with each other. :)

Could also be useful to warn other players of traps set for zombies.

If you friendly and don't want to kill other players you could mark a door "door trapped" in spray paint.

Or is you just want your friends to know you could spray 3 lines next to the door which might be your groups code for "shot gun trap". Letting them know not to use that door.

Do you think that you would be able to make the writing fad or like smudge and become unreadable over time due to the weather or just as the days or years pass?

Ok, so you make a group, you make a base, you need to mark your territory so people know not to mess with you, You pick up a can of spray paint and mark a symbol on the wall to ward people away. This is multi use as you could mark looted buildings so people arnt going back on themselves or even places filled with zombies.

first off i like the idea. but didn't jb said they werent puttin them in becuase of the abuse they would be used for. and second i didn't want to start another thread for spray paint, even if they dont put in the ability to write with the paint, after watching the update post with the filter silencers, it would be cool if they were in the game just to paint camaflouge ur home made stuff like that and your weapons. like alot of hunters do nowa days.

Spray paint could be used for players to help mark the places they've been, locations for loot, or even just to mark their territory. Spray paint can also be used to camouflage the player's weapons or vehicle.
