Hey, everyone. Me, Valki, bullets and Fleischy are organizing a new match of SHTF, and it would be great to receive some input from everyone else. The main discussion points are:

-Whether to continue using Innawoods, due to its unreliability in regards to weight(some items have no weight or are way too light/heavy). One possibility would be for the hosts to make a chart for certain items and judge the weight according now to the value displayed but on the chart.
-The amount and balance of classes in the game. What is already decided is that the classes will affect how much weight you can carry before receiving penalties, what guns you can use and with how much proficiency you can use them, survival training(changing the outcomes of your choice depending on the class), and medical proficiency(how able are you in applying medicine and curatives to your wounds).
-Effects of over-encumbrance, dehydration and starvation, and how to keep track of the last two.
-The layout of the map, and whether to make vehicles like boats or trucks available or needing certain skills.
-Starting places: Depending on the class, you'll spawn in an appropriate place, so if you are a soldier, you'll start the story in a military base.
-Update rate. Like Fleischy mentioned, what we have decided for now is that every one or two days(or once everyone has chosen an option), the game will update. If you don't choose an option, that'll have effects in your story, like, for an example, being unable to dodge a tree and ramming your vehicle in it, or failing to notice someone else sneaking up on you and getting injured.

The hosts are going to be me, valkiriiking and possibly bullets, and we will decide democratically a couple of pre-made scenarios for the choices you make depending on the situation, equipment and other players' choices.

Suggestions are welcome, too.

OP asked for input, not lag.

List of good advice:
1) <Fleischy> also you could actually allow people to go over the weight limit
<Fleischy> but the higher over it they go, the harder it is for them to cope with situations

2) <CommieBuffalo> I was thinking about them starting somewhere appropriate
<CommieBuffalo> so if they are a military guy they start near some military base or something

3) In case it wasn't done before, update all characters in one go once a day or 2, depending on how much story writing there is to do (and whoever doesn't post before the update gets a penalty).

More will be added

Guess I'll just copy paste what I did on the Risk V8 forums here:
"Agh, since I can't take this anymore and I really want SHTF 2.0 to happen I took some time off and did this map, hopefully it is decent enough for you guys so we can start SHTF in a few days from this post."

*Cough*... certainly looks better than my map, but I already made one (Commie has it).
It's in the works though, no need to get so impatient. And what makes you think they can just instantly start it off now that the almighty Devin came to the rescue?

But what if the almighty Devin actually did come to the rescue but you're trying not to admit it?

Because I know that there is still quite a bit of time before SHTF 2 can actually begin, plus as I said, there's already a map for it.

Unless I add some locations to my map, some back story and just host it myself ;3
Then there would no map for it other than mine MUAHAHAHAH.
But.... I'm lazy, I'm not that much of an asshole even tough I am, since I could totally update this daily XD
And thank you for saying my map's good? Btw I think I saw your map and please, don't go foward with the 4 islands.
Players might get seperated easily with four islands, that way there would be almost no action .n.
