Tailoring refers to the process of making clothing more resistant against bites, scratches, and bullets. This Zombie Survivors Guide outlines what clothes are best for fighting against zombies and how to level up to 41.73.
Tailoring can be a very useful skill in Zomboid. This will help you to survive in the unlikely event that you are attacked by a Zombie Horde. It decreases the chance of getting bitten (or bitten in multiplayer), and it can also be used for repairs to your clothing and accessories, so you can keep that style even after you have looted.
There are three main tools that you can use to get started.
A Needle – Can be found in medicine cabinets and sewing kit boxes.
Scissors – Found in desks, drawers, shelves, offices and school buildings.
Thread – Found in sheds, garages, shops, vehicles, and sewing kit boxes, but the easiest way is tearing rags. More details on this later.
Tailoring in this patch is easier, but still a lot of work. You should read the tailoring books first to maximize XP.
Tailoring Vol. 1-5 – Can be found in book shops, houses, schools, warehouses
Lucky survivors may be able to find a VHS which can be played in a TV. However, these are very rare. These are Home VHS recordings. It is rare to find this loot in normal houses.
Once you have your boosts, getting XP is easy.
- Rip clothes to make strips or sheets.
- Add padding to clothes. Ripped Sheets can be used to add padding to clothes.
- To increase your XP, you can remove the padding.
To speed things along, you can find clothes that have lots of body parts. Long Johns with coveralls, long sleeves, coveralls and aprons are all good options.
There are 3 types. All three start at a pretty low level of +1/2% scratch/bite resistant to start. But, it improves as you reach level 10 Tailoring.
Ripped Sheets – Up to 5% Scratch resistance.
Denim Strips – Up to 5% Bite, 10% Scratch and 5% Bullet resistance.
Leather Strips – Up to 10% Bite, 20% scratch and 10% Bullet resistance.
Once you have achieved Tailoring Level 8, the ability to repair holes will be available. This will allow you restore the garment to its original condition. If you have the right material, it is possible to restore the garment completely.
T-shirts can be repaired using ripped sheets. Denim strips can fix jeans, denim jackets or leather strips. They are used for certain leather jackets.
Tailoring is so efficient because you can stack your pieces. Layers of clothing, such as Fireman's outfits, can be worn on top of each other to maximize resistance against armour. It is hot and can make you look like a tank.
If you are just starting out:
- Low-insulated clothing with plenty of body part slots is the best option for summer.
- High Insulation can prove useful in winter. But, be aware that sweating can make you sick.
Below is the ideal tailor's cut to provide maximum protection.
To prevent overheating, you can simply take off some of your more insulated clothes. Don't worry about it getting hot in summer. You only need to drink a lot more water.
The Army Coat can be replaced with a Leather Jacket, however it comes with -3% attack speed and is -2% run speed worse off. There are two types. Be sure to grab the long version!
As Leather Trousers are quite rare, Overalls may prove to be an easier choice and also come with the bonus chest protection at the cost of some leg protection which allows you to remove the Tank Top.
The Short Sleeve Shirt or Baseball Shirt are a little hotter but can replace the Hawaiian shirt.
Not all scarves are made the same! Check different colours to see if they have different insulation qualities. Blue stripe is coolest, solid colours are warmer.
No helmet provides neck protection any more, so pick your favourite 100% Bite/Scratch helmet!
