The repopulation looks to be important heading into its next stage of development now and some if the early adopter packages will be changing. If you want the best deal nows the time to jump on in.
There is a cool looking project Zomboid map now although you probably won’t get the scale of this if you haven’t played and there is still a lot of work to be done on it. Looking like nice progress though
