Hi; I'm new to the game and i got a question for all you pros out there.
warning-this might be stupid questions to ask, but they are real question i have.

1. Can sound travel from inside one building through another building(with locked doors) so that the noise creates multiple paths for the zombies to follow?

2. Under the pretense that the first question is answered yes, what happens when there a collection of zombies, ever-splitting because they are trapped behind a locked door which shares a path of equal length with the largest noise zone?

These might be confusing question, but if you can help, thanks.

1. Nothing blocks noise

2. But that doesn't mean that zombies will be splitting endlessly before a closed door. Zombies don't split because there are multiple noisiest zones, they only split if there are multiple zones they should move into to get to those destination zones. So if they're stuck against a locked door, they won't split because they're not moving anywhere.

1. Yes.
2. That depends on the precise circumstances, but from what you've written they possibly continue splitting, however, can you give a more concrete example of what you mean (maybe grab the Map Editor (from here), if you don't have it) and draw us a picture)?

Ah, I see where your confusion is. A path that goes through a locked door is NOT a path. The Zombies will never take it into account if they have the possibility of getting to the noisiest Zone by a different, open, path. The ONLY case where Zombies will try to take a path through a locked door, and end up stuck behind it, is if there are NO other open paths available.

So in your case, the Zombies in 1 would move into the building, and the Zombies in 2 and 3 would move into the street intersection Zone with the police car.

Yup, although I still think it shouldn't be that way, Thiago is correct.

doesn't this effectively mean that the closed doors DO block noise?

You could say that they dampen the noise, since Zombies prefer open paths than locked doors. But if they have no open paths to the noisy zone, they'll hear the noise and scratch at the door that's blocking their way.
