420chan is Getting Overhauled - Changelog/Bug Report/Request Thread (Updated July 26)

Are you in the red zone?

There is a population of 10 million in LA County. In a space of 4,083 square miles (10,570 km2).

Its probably closer to 15 million I don't know when the census was taken or how many people are there illegally the point is its super dense population in some areas. New York/New Jersey is even worse in that regard.

The red zones on this map will be the most dangerous places to survive. There will be looting and maybe even widescale violence, so we know these are the places that will be the most dangerous.

Do you live in a red zone? What would be your plan? Hold your ground in the red zone and try to somehow sustain yourself in one those areas? Bug out to a more sparsely populated area?

If you don't live in a red zone how would you react to refugees? I live in a red zone, but I have family in very rural areas so I would be welcomed. If you don't know anyone in those areas what's your plan for bugging out?

So I see a lot of threads about BOBs and BIBs, but none about the most essential part of those kits: the MedKit. The ones that are ready-made are, quite frankly, lacking in supplies. Not to mention woefully insufficient.

I compiled a list of links to stuff you may or may not need. If you think of something i havent, for the good of the group post it! If you know where something is available cheaper, again post it! I know that i'm not the only one who likes to watch those pennies and pounds/nickles and dimes!


This initial list should run you about £100 ($160). I havent included OTC meds such as Paracetamol/Ibuprofen/Allergy/Inflammatory/etc. but if you find links to some legit cheap online retailers, post away! :)

Then i totally agree with the headlamp. I have half a dozen different medical kits so they all fill very specific roles. When im going out on a trail i bring a separate IFAK and leave my car kit in the car for example.

the newest update is pretty cool.

they polished it alittle bit and made the little hex avatars with more continuity to what a character looks like.

now you can talk to people who are just scavangers.

theres new places to go, places to see and more to learn about the character.

new boots, new clothes. new weapons.

all the others are now new factions.

i last longer it seems, but its still not easy. i can still make it to only 6 days.

sometimes guns are more available, sometimes meds are more available, sometimes its all trash and raiders, haha/

i love this game

Let's make this simple.
Go get a rock and smash those seeds.
Take the smashed seed dust and put it in a bucket.
Add clean water.
Add yeast.
Leave alone for 2 weeks.
Barrel in airtight container.

That won't work. For beer, first you need to malt the seeds (partially germinate) then mash the seeds (soak in warm but not boiling water) then boil it, THEN leave alone for a few weeks.

Wines are much easier, since it's pretty much what you wrote except with fruit instead of seeds. And juice instead of dust.

I think there's another thread about this in /fo/

Let's assume SHTF somehow. All the zombies are dead. The pandemic is over. Radiation levels are back to normal. The environment is okay. You and your group survived but modern society no longer exists and 60% of the human race is essentially wiped out. Now your group has chosen you to rebuild civilization.

Writing a post apocalyptic story and need some help. Basically the main character is a scientist working with the deadliest airborne disease. He knows if this gets out it will wipe out the population. Just to be precarious he builds a bunker for himself in case anything goes down.

It does go down and he has to stay there for years. 5+ years. What can he have in his bunker to survive for years? I need ideas for electricity. Can't use gas for too long. Solar panels can be stolen from other survivors. So what energy source can he use?

Also what else can he put in the bunker? Like food, water, body waste etc.

>Just to be precarious
What? Precarious means a risky situation, not one of Pre-Caring about the possible disasters. I think you should write your story in your native language.

Pic related. Make your story about the intense isolation of being underground, how the scientist takes his family down with him and despite doing his best to shoulder the burden of providing power to his family by cycling on one of these devils, start to stress the emotional strain of him having to put the burden onto his family. First his wife, then his children.

It'll be a thinly veiled stab at how the American dream has been pigeon-holed into a race you sacrifice your children to the national debt, which none of us can ever win.

Cause when you stop pedalling, the power goes out.

The fire isn't to destroy the bunker it's to destroy the surrounding natural cover so everything is really easy to see.

I'm not trolling you're just mad I am upsetting your bunker fantasies and it's hilarious.
Charles Posslenadge - Sun, 30 Mar 2014 05:09:10 EST 2YIQD5dq No.12894 Reply
youre entire scenario requires you to know where the bunker is and have a large group of people to siege it.

good luck convincing a bunch of people to wander around the woods looking for a camoflagued entrance. most people place these things in rather isolated areas so you'd need to bring in supplie trains to supply your people as you hunt for the bunker and destroying all the natural supplies to attempt to get in is counter intuitive the entrances are usually hidden and if you've ever played hide and seek in the woods a little camo goes a long way.

and its not like people who make these things arent prepping for nukes that release poison gasses and such so theyed have filters to remove things like smoke.

better off just raiding something not ment to stand up to a raid.

At what point is it best to bug out? What real-world scenarios would warrant dropping everything, grabbing your bag and getting the fuck out of Dodge, so to speak? I get natural disasters that leave large areas uninhabitable or at the very least very dangerous would be up there on the list as well as rioting and social unrest but at this point it may be too late to make for an effective escape. What are the warning signs that one should look for in regards to deciding it is time to leave?

Pic slightly related, an old picture of my hiking gear. Yes, there is a wand and pipe in there since while I was hiking I was also heavily into my shaman phase of spiritual exploration. I've added some things since then but for the sake of brevity I won't go into it. This is for scenarios and general warning signs, not necessarily gear.

Keep tabs on world events and local news. The weather too.

Usually the PANIC! mode happens suddenly and without warning due to something like radio/cell phone announcements suddenly like RUSSIA IS INVADING REMAIN CALM THE NATIONAL GUARD WILL PROTECT YOU or a nuke siren would turn any other calm day into full retard chaos mode. Those are the kinds of things you can't anticipate. Sneak attacks from terrorists or invading countries. Sudden natural disasters happen without warning sometimes but there are usually warning signs with tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanos, bad storms, hurricanes etc.

A terrorist attack requires a different response than an invasion obviously. If you hear about a terrorist attack get away from populated areas, get all your NBC survival gear and watch the news. Go to a remote location if people are being rounded up by the National Guard for safety as those locations could become potential targets next. The Guard will be meaning well but you should look after your own ass, plus with relief camps like that, panic can make them explode into unconstrained chaos, paranoid OMG FEMA CAMPS people can start grabbing M16s from the armory and yeah, you don't want to be there unless you're a Guardsman, then obviously do your duty.

For an invasion the same general rule applies but foreign countries know the US is chock full of gun toting average people so if you see foreign soldiers parachuting into your neighborhood, shoot to kill because they've most likely been ordered and trained to treat you as an enemy combatant. The National Guard will tell you to go to their camps and not fight but they'll be glad people did when the dust settles.

Seriously any invading soldier setting foot in America is going to be paranoid as fuck. They will shoot, your little cottage house or whatever isn't going to look innocent and pastoral. If they don't behave that way their invasion isn't going to last very long. So yeah be aware of that if you're an American citizen or even just visiting here and an invasion happens. Everyone here might become a target.

It's very hard to wipe a plant out of existence, if not near impossible.

Even more so one that grows in a ridiculous amount of the world. Even if you made a virus/fungus etc that destroyed the plant, there would be forms of the plant that would be resistant to it because, well, because evolution. Good luck spreading that fungus to all the different parts of the world as well, if the fungus can even survive in the very hot/very cold/very dry/very wet areas that weed can grow.

It would be easier and more plausible to make some kind of pest like locust and somehow genetically breed it to fucking love eating weed, even then seeds would survive, persist and spread, and the pest would again have trouble spreading around the world and surviving in different climates.

Shit now I think about it trying to wipe a plant out to extinction is probably one of the hardest things you could ever attempt to do.

Locust aint shit compared to fungus. They suck at spreading, whereas spores are fuckin great at hitching a ride on everything. They mainly just do mechanical damage, wheras a fungus can fuck up your whole biochemistry. Fuck a locust.
>Shit now I think about it trying to wipe a plant out to extinction is probably one of the hardest things you could ever attempt to do.
True. There's plenty of rare plants that could be made extinct in the wild. With a concerted effort, I bet authorities could destroy all wild peyote (so they'd only grow in captivity).

Look up the American Chestnut. It was brought to the brink of extinction thanks to a wild fungus.

Hey guys. I got a good rifle. A left handed one because shooting right handed bolts fucking sucks.
What type of scope should I buy? I should mention that I am no fucking sniper, so I don't need some flawless $600 scope that can see 9 miles away. I'd say I'm good up to 300 yards, and could hit a target (not accurately) at 400 yards.

knowing that what type of rifle and ammunition is used is important to knowing what type of scope to use, my pic is related.

Oh wow this is a board now. I am real happy about that, I have so many apocalyptic fantasies.
Ok So This thread is just to discuss your general battle plans for whatever varied forms of apocalypse you want to have a plan for. I would however like to keep a general structure just for the sake novelty. Some things to include that'd be great are the following:
>official start date should be 'tomorrow'
>start with day 1, follow through at whatever pace you deem acceptable
>be sure to include what kind of apocalypse you're planning for, nuclear, alien, virus, zombie, biblical, robot, asteroid, cthulu or otherwise. We need to know what you're reacting to
>try to be as realistic/knowledgeable as possible, after a battle plan destined for failure isn't much fun to talk about

That seems sufficient.
For those who need inspiration; It's March 7th you wake up , and immediately realize it's one of those days that start of eerily calm for what ever reason, a lull in traffic, people that are usually around not being around, it could be anything. Going about your daily routine like normal you hear a scream all the way outside off in the distance, it doesn't bother you though. It's weird but whatever. You walk into your living room, you left the TV on last night and the emergency broadcast system is on the screen, it's not a test this time and it's quiet. Changing the channel, most of them are the same until you find a news channel.

So here I'd like some help, I want to continue my story but I'd it to be interactive, anyone want to pick what kind of apocalypse I'm going to have?
