Could someone tell me how many tiles away a gunshot can be heard by zombies or how it works.. Thx in advance

The sound level that the game returns whenever you make noise is the number of tiles away that the sound carries. There are factors that influence it up and down, but for the most part sound 6 = can be heard 6 squares away.

Normal tiles i presume, 3 map tiles for walking would be too much.

How can i descent into a cold lab without freezing? I have a wool cloak, 2 thermal electric outfits, balaclavas, knit hat and scarf, wool sockets and gloves, winter boots, etc. but the current cold lab has -142 Celsius on the level -8 and it is just too much. Is there any way to descent without wearing extreme amount of warm clothes?

Internal Heat Control CBM or whatever its called should do the trick

Prussian blue tablets help, so does the Radiation Scrubber CBM. Other than that, just sit in your base and apply bandages to yourself.

I get the feeling that there's a very interesting story behind this question.

Fire.

Always fire.

Beautiful fire.

Know that the character's body stores heat. So warm up to unbearable heat and advance. Then start a new fire, warm up, and advance some more. Deploy multiple braziers. Labs have a lot of wood and sheet metal (for the braziers). There might be mutations that make you more resistant to cold, IDK. All I know is there are mutations that make you LESS resistant to cold.

Personally, I've never been in that cold in any game.

Would power armor help? It has pretty solid heat stabilization but you wouldn't be able to use any other gear if it's not enough.

Fur clothing is the strongest clothing against cold. But you'll need to skin some animals with decent Survival skill to get their pelts. And then have some Tailoring skill as well to produce the apparel. Might get lucky at a clothing store as well. Your puny wool clothing and thermal gadgets are pitiful when compared to the properties of real animal fur. Fur items can provide warmth values of 60-80. Be sure to use a tailoring kit and modify the fur clothing with even more fur.

Stole a cop car from a checkpoint; took 2 shots to the arm and torso to get it,  It has a gray hood.

Found a cargo carrier, it wont let me put diesel into its green gas tanks.  Is that a bug?  it has no diesel in it; it was on abridge.

Where does one find more oxyacetylene?

(as far as I can tell, the only way is to just find more ace torches. is this correct?)

Unload the diesel containers next to the vehicle.
