Clearly, you'd start in a cave rather than an evac shelter.

Raiding bee hives for honey would be your main quest. Human survivors could be dangerous but a source of meat.

Other bears could give you quests to avenge their parents, or trade honey with them. They could teach unarmed styles.

Also, you'd be tasked with preventing forest fires.

Also, random Christians roaming the wilds with video cameras would be your main source of food.

Oh sweet Jesus. Zombies. So many zombies! In a carefully planned attack involving 1x1 windows and a wasp sting, I killed hundreds (if not thousands) of zombies of both normal and special flavours in three days but they never stopped coming! Argh, if I get my hands on that NPC who gave a cardboard box to fight these!

With that as my goal, I battled my way through the zombie necromancers (good thing I kept butchering everything that fell before my blade) and Hulks with the trustworthy katana I grabbed off a dead drug lor- Erm, survivor.

But the NPC was dead, along with another corpse on top of him and dozens of zombie corpses and casings near them. Hm.... that was disappointing. How will I get my revenge now?

Burn the corpse while wildly firing around yourself.

Clearly the bear had claimed the house.

This is definitely a bug, the bear should have marked the door with urine.  I'll get on fixing this asap.

You move to open the door, but you notice it's covered in urine. Continue? Y/N

If the ability to soak up liquids is brought in, I will be raiding bear houses for their pee and using it to hide my scent trail from the Zs.

Who needs a katana and CBMs when you have plastic bottles of bear urine?

You know what is even more dangerouse than zombies?
Wild animals...

I was doing pretty good, had a lot of loot on me and found for the first time a vehicle and they really rock. :D
Though it was kinda hard to get a canister for the fuel to be effectivly transported.

Anyway, I was scouting and ramming zombies in a town and prepared for looting them later when I saw a lab.
Because I had a ID card I wanted to make this my base and went parking my new awesome car behind it.

Then those wolves appeared.
Note: I was playing the ver from the 3. jan to avoid the insane wildlife spawn bug. It still got me I guess.
Taking out my rifle I made it quick and was happy about the extra food.
Then another pack appeared.
And another.
And another.
Even some spiders joined the forces.

Well, I got overrun next to my vehicle and I couldn't get in anymore...
Really stupid way to end a fairly good run.

I'm not sure how it is with the fixes compared to Jan 3 version, but from what I've seen animal spawns can still be dependent on noise levels. Weirdly enough, wolves are attracted by gunfire. At one point I couldn't drive my truck without most of my map filling with squirrels.

Latest version I've had no real problem with them. Even threw a molotov at some early enough that killed 2 and the rest ran away.

yea, the zombie population actually originates from a point in the center of the town, burning the structures in the town down will have no effect other than killing any zombies that have spawned.

OTOH the process of burning down a building is extraordinarily noisy, so spawns are going to shoot through the roof while it's happening.
