DescriptionEdit

  • Exterior view
  • Facility slots
The Alamo is a potential Home site in State of Decay. It is a small tex-mex restaurant located in the crowded commercial section of east Marshall

Relocating RequirementsEdit

As a small base site, the Alamo has modest requirements to settle within its walls:

  • 5 survivors (No requirement on Breakdown)
  • 20 building materials

Location and EnvironsEdit

  • The Alamo is sited in the heart of Marshall's eastern half, in its commercial district. It is hemmed in on all sides by buildings, most notably Blaine's Grocery to the east.
  • Located as it is in the center of Marshall, it is very close to the bulk of scavenging areas, particularly once Spencer's Mill has been largely cleared.

  • Fuel - 65

Defense StrategyEdit

  • Overall, the Alamo is difficult to defend. The site can only support four outposts, making a perimeter difficult to establish. Additionally, as the building is located in downtown Marshall, it is within spawning distance of the entire menu of zombies, including the highly-dangerous Feral. The building's perimeter wall is not adequate to slow attacking zombies appreciably, and the small number of survivors supported by the structure can be hard-pressed to successfully defend it.
  • The improvement of defense for the Alamo must be the primary concern upon settlement. The buildings to the north, south, and west should be converted into outposts and have their safezone extended. Blaine's Grocery, to the east, should also be secured and set as an outpost.
  • As the Alamo offers only a single interior facility slot, a sleeping area or medical area should be placed here inside the building to help protect the most vulnerable survivors.
  • Once the sleeping or medical area is placed in the indoor slot, the second of the two facilities should be placed in the "penthouse suite" on the roof. For instance, one effective combination is to place the medical area indoors and the sleeping area on the roof. There is also a third slot outside the building, which is probably best used for a workshop.

NotesEdit

  • The homesite's name is a reference to the Battle of the Alamo, a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. In this battle, Mexican troops overwhelmed and killed all Texians defending the Alamo Mission after a 13-day siege.

    • I like the Alamo because you can make those hard-to-get up ladder buildings outposts.
    • personally, i prefere the savini residence as you only have to defend 1.5 walls as the others are inacessible to the zeds ;)
