    Patrick Poll #2: Should Cars Require Fuel?

    Another simple question in a nutshell that has been thrown around by the realistic derivers of this forum. In real life, fuel is essential. We use it for many tasks and operations, one primary and common task being the use of fuel to power our vehicles. State of Decay currently has a magical vehicle system that prompts the limitless supply of fuel in-tank that all cars spawn in with. I think its totally derailing from the realistic feel this game does a semi-standard job of keeping afloat. Do you think that the use of your colonies Fuel Supply Stock should be used to run your car? You would have to build a refuel station, drive to it when you need to refuel, and flood gas from your current stash to continue your quest via vehicle.

    I would say, for simplicity sake, just have each vehicle in a parking spot at your community consume 1 Fuel each day, so to obtain the benefits of car maintenance you also have to lose some Fuel to refuel them. Not a perfect system, and folks who don't like it could avoid it if they desired with how many vehicles are in the game.

    I'm going to go ahead and say that I broadly agree with everything Red Eye says.

    It would have to be balanced to accommodate this...but, I like the premise

    For the record I voted yes. IT would give a REAL REALISTIC RHYME to the game.

    Thats good enough. I still would love if cars had random amounts of fuel in the tank when you start a new game, any number from 0% to 100%. Also less cars in Vanilla SOD. In Breakdown there are fewer cars as you progress, right? What about lowering the average % of fuel in cars as you progress too? 0% - 100% in Lvl 1, 0% - 90% in Lvl 2 and so on.

    It would make fuel really useful and you would think twice before using your car for short trips.

    Red Eye and Breakm's ideas combined would be perfect in my opinion. Or just have the cars have less distance they can travel on 1 fuel.

    You could also be required to break into and hotwire each car, the first time you use it— certain skills may apply.

    Liked RedEyes idea, this one as well. Maybe a little button masher mini game, gets easier and quicker as skill improves.

    That could be based on 'Wits'. The lower the 'wit' the more noise and time it takes you etc.

    I agree that Fuel could be more important. Not sure about loosing 1 Fuel Unit per day /per car at your Home Base, but loosing it when driving for sure. Even to the extent of loosing it quicker the faster you drive.

    Cars should require fuel because it has nearly no use other than that.
