    Looking for a 'sandbox' survival game?

    Basically I'm looking for a game like terraria.

    A game in which you have to gather resources, perhaps build and defend a base while getting attacked by enemy forces.

    Ps Minecraft is ... well , just boring. I find it a little bit to much of a sandbox. Get yourself a bed and a house and you have nothing to fear, everything else is optional.

    DayZ is less building but still has the survival and looting aspects and is a huge sandbox

    If you have Arma 2 and Arma 2 OA, I would suggest playing Wasteland. You have to pick a team, gather supplies such as weapons, food, and water. You can also buy building supplies and build a base. There are enemy players and enemy AI that actually attempt to attack your base. Pretty fun game mode.

    Game has gone to shit now that you don't spawn with a weapon anymore...it's close to impossible to scavenge loot now as you can't even get into a base with agroing zombies...and I can hardly call it sandbox.

    Sorry, but spawning without a weapon doesn't make the game shit. It just means you have to take a more strategical approach than just running into a city guns blazing killing zeds. When I started playing you didn't spawn with a weapon, and the game isn't that bad in regards to starting off. You just have to sneak around a lot more avoiding zombies and know where to search. When you think about it, the zeds aren't even that dangerous. I've ran through entire cities before aggroing probably at least 20 zombies just to lose them in between buildings and can generally not get hit. The only real threat is other players.

    Starting with or without a wep does not make or break a game... Its so darn nice, you just have to be sneeky sneeky, and not baddie baddie... Simple

    Weapons were never hard to find to begin with. Since you can now drop zombie aggro by running behind a bush, through a house or over a hill I'd argue the game is actually easier now.

    When I lay in grass and agro from I think it was 100 meters from me, I can hardly call it baddie baddie. It means it's broken. And while I get it's only alpha/beta...I have no way to get my hands on a weapon unless someone cleared to city right before I came in.

    Ofc I can run in without getting hit, but I won't be able to loot anything. The concept is great, but the game is so broken...I still don't get why they took Arma 2 to do this. Operation Flashpoint would run this mod so much better.

    First of Zombies is not gonna agro from 100M if you lay still in the grass they are simply not coded that way. Even in broad daylight you can almost crawl directly on top of one and it will not see you. Every single time i die it doesn't take me a very long time to get a hold of an axe from a barn somewhere, and as soon as you got that axe everthing else is easy. If you had played it just a little bit you would have noticed zombies cannot run inside buildings and basically become completely harmless thus making it easier to run through a town into a building and be safe. The game is not broken you just don't want to give it a chance because it's too hard for you it seems.

    You are looking for Xsyon. Check it out on Youtube. Pure sandbox.
    An MMO with a sandboxy feel (crafting/openworld) but better commercialised is Secret World.
