What happens when you get a lot of survivors?

    I'm curious if you guys have ever checked or noticed anything? I've gotten i think 40ish survivors in my save, they've ran out of places to stand in snyder's (i guess) so they've started standing in the lot of the warehouse across the street.

    At some point (I'm not sure how many survivors), it can mess with your saves. With 40 survivors, you're more likely to have more morale issues, more issues with supplies (keeping enough base supplies for everyone), and likely have sleep deprivation issues from not having enough beds.

    I've seen times when survivors stood at the warehouse across the street, but I'm not sure if that's connected with how many survivors you have. I've seen that when I just had 10 survivors, so I'm not sure why it does that.

    I've never had to worry about supplies. I think my ammo consumption was like....12-15 a day, so that's all i had to find. Food was -13 or something, and i had 150 units, so that wasnt a worry either. And i like to try and see how many i can get, and if i were to put a bed in every slot, in the biggest base, i'd get a max of 48 (?) i think. So i don't worry about that much either. And morale is never an issue for me either :p

    Yeah, the game kind of glitches a little when you have that many people. It's supposed to be that the number of people you have correlates with how much food and ammo you use per day (1 ammo and 1 food per day), but for some reason it starts acting weird when people have massive groups. If you have 40 people, it should be -40 ammo and -40 ammo a day, but again, it doesn't do that. I hope in SoD2 it does that and has catastrophic consequences for those who don't have enough supplies.

    I play on PC and had about 74 people on level 4 BD and I believe ammo usage goes by the number of people armed with guns not the total pop ;)

    74? Why do you keep so many people? Any particular reason?

    I tend to have 15 people at my Home Base and try to fully train them all up. So when I do leave on the RV, I have left a good Home Base behind:)

    Just from a system standpoint, try to keep your survivors under 30. You'll experience less glitchy / crashing. :)

    Damn, and here I thought I was winning at 54, back when I was making a certain mod, lol.
    I maybe had 1 or 2 run off to a distant outpost but never any real dramas.
    Been trying to get that high again but can only tolerate about 18 before the level starts to annoy me and I pack up and leave. It's no fun if I've already looted everything, don't like standing around :)

    Staying at the Church was your first mistake. That place is cursed.
