I think it would be a good idea to implement a new type of area to scavenge: Gas Stations, like a cross between a convenience store and a residence, except of course you have a chance to find gasoline, maybe around 10 or 15 if you're lucky, and around 5 on automated missions.
ALSO I recommend turning off the radio thingy and the announcement thing that tells you when other players find good loot, it's not proven but I have a feeling that it being online to track that stuff would make it more laggy.
I believe it would be nice to spice up scavenging runs by making it as you enter the building, you find a group of A.I controlled raiders that attack you, and possibly when they die, they turn into a corpse you can loot for good stuff.
I think you don't understand, Coliin, when I mean retarded children, I mean people who post THIS, "well da fuc[k why dose every thing cost sp im low on hunger [low on sp to] i eat food than i collapse are you guy trying to make me buy shit so that i spend real money to play DAME DUD"
"Had to run away from a squirrel because I couldn't hover my mouse over it :\. I feel pathetic..." That happened to me, the squirrel goes under your HUD, you just have to slowly move your mouse around, until you can click him.
