Sleepin' Bag Charity Simulator

Assign t' Friend

Somethin' we’ve been thinkin' about fer a long time. We’ve talked ourselves out o' it an' talked ourselves back into it. Our primary problem with this solution were bein' that we didn’t like that scallywags would be killin' themselves t' spawn near a matey. Fetch me spyglass! Which likely seems like a silly thin' t' worry about. So now I’m pullin' th' trigger.

The notion is as simple as it could be. You hold E on a sleepin' bag that ye own, select assign t' matey – then search fer yer matey’s name an' click on it. Your matey now owns this sleepin' bag an' can spawn at it. The player list is collected from players on th' server an' from yer maties list.

Lots o' stuff happenin' at th' same time this week.

Radtown Loot

The way loot spawns has been changed. Previously ye’d always find boxes in th' same position an' most o' th' time they were empty.

Now th' boxes disappear when they be looted an' respawn at a random position.

We’ve also modified th' loot tables quite a bit t' be slightly more generous when it comes t' boxes in rad towns, ye scurvey dog. You will also notice that Rad Towns spawn barrels at random positions. This means no more dummy barrels!

There be also different tiers fer th' barrels, some with better, some with worse loot.

Updated Terrain Generation

Does Team IPX need a Zombie proof log cabin?

Saw this article on cnet recently an' thought at last someone has filled this significant gap in th' log cabin market, Dance the Hempen Jig My only question is if ye were goin' t' get a cabin t' survive th' zombie apocalypse why on earth would ye build out o' somethin' that can burn or rot?!

If th' zombie apocalypse e'er arrives, ye’ll be happy ye dropped a ton o' cash fer a cabin designed t' fortify ye against attacks by th' undead.

You hear th' horrifyin' groans. Decayin' hands scrabble at th' door, tryin' t' find a way in. They want t' eat ye. You sit down on th' sofa, kick yer feet up an' open a can o' Spam. Nay worries. You’re inside a Zombie Fortification Cabin from Tiger Log Cabins. All ye have t' do now is wait in safety an' comfort fer th' zombie apocalypse t' blow o'er.

Chickens smarter than toddlers

breakin' news


IT IS easy t' dismiss them as bird brains, but chickens may be cleverer than toddlers.

Studies show that chicks can master skills includin' numeracy an' self-control – an' even basic structural engineerin'.

Typically, it takes little sandcrabs until th' age o' four t' accomplish some o' these feats.

Christine Nicol, th' Bristol University professor o' animal welfare who reviewed 20 years o' research on th' topic, said it were bein' wrong t' think o' chickens as bein' stupid. Instead, th' birds have ‘many hidden depths’.

Chickens exhibit intelligent behaviour within just a few hours o' hatchin', Professor Nicol says.
