  1. The other consistency was that an alpha was always followed by another alpha. How can TFP ever break that vicious cycle ?

  2. The only consistency we’ve seen with bandits has been seeing them pushed to the “next” update. Just embrace the delay. 😀 yeah, I’ll update it this week and update the art gallery. Anything people feel should be added that has been revealed but not reflected?

  3. Bandits are not coming in A20, nor in A21. Read between the lines here in the roadmap in op: 19) Character Overhaul - Pushed to A21 Outfits are another feature that will help build the foundation for the future implementation of bandits So if something that is pushed to A21 comes with a description which says that it is the foundation for the future implementation of bandits, I think it's not that hard to predict that bandits are simply not coming in A21. What speaks for this theory is also that lately dev diary of every new Alpha starts with rich and ambitious feature list the most exciting parts of which almost always end up with the note "pushed to next Alpha" as they get closer to the release of the Alpha they are working on at that time.

  4. That was the most rambling jumble of a rant I've ever read.

  5. They say otherwise but I agree. Simply a normal early access thing. Majority of interested buyer have bought. However I want to state what I have said before. Even if the game went gold and released next week it is totally worth the $7.50 sale price it currently sells for and have totally been worth the $20 or so I spent on it.

  6. The system that stitches together the city should be expanded to generate random building interiors. Q: Why? A: I love the current POIs, but they are all holding my hand and guiding me through. I would prefer less predictable POIs. Some apartment buildings are constructed from prefabricated pieces of reinforced concrete IRL. Appartments at lvl 1 are the same as the ones on lvl2. These should be inter-changeable, or considered a standard 'tile'. Any multi-level building could have a system of randomly spawnable rooms that will randomize the [building interior picked] on world generation. A parking lot would have a random nr. of cars and types spawned, it's attached self-storage building will be a fixed size random set of rooms generated. This should allow for various tilable buildings to be randomly generated ( make a building composed out of [ level0, level1,... level300] , levels would hold the definition for doors spawn type ( locked/locked_reinforced/etc. ) and contain a tilable identifier for apartments. Apartments could be the result of stitching together apt = [Kitchen_01, Bedroom_04, Bathroom_Small_07, Living_Room_Double_02] .

  9. This game was worth the $30 (I think) that I paid for it twice. Once for me, and once as a gift. Out of all the games I've every purchased I've hands down gotten the most mileage out of this one. There probably isn't even a close second. The dedication of the team to keep iterating and evolving has been nothing short of awesome and unique. I'm super excited to see what's coming down the pipe with other games that are in development.

  10. Rivers and waterfalls would probably require the water overhaul which was confirmed to be postponed to A21. @Roland: Any updates to the first post? It's been a while.

  11. TFP says all who can still contribute. In games development there are several jobs that are important in different stages of development. Designers have nothing left to do at the final stages and so they typically switch to new projects while the old project is still in beta. This is done by practically all game development companies out there who can afford to have specialists for the task. This is called pipelining by the way. Minecraft is a published game that is developed as a service game by now, I would say that is a different case, i.e. they will put just enough developers on the game to make enough updates to entertain and keep the regular players and make an adequate profit. Is Mojang still active there? I had thought he left the company after he sold it to Microsoft

  12. The issue you describe seems to be caused by a mismatch between the poilist and the installed pois. This happens when people update one but not the other. Try with a fresh installation of DF and with a new poi list.

  14. That honestly sucks, but if you look at it from their POV. It would be allowing someone to freely risk everyone's account/credentials of compromisation because "it wasn't me". Anyone can use that excuse, and personally, it exercises caution. That's how identity theft, and what happened to you occurs. As awful as that sounds, imagine you got one of those messages and clicked it, then had the exact same problem. It exercises caution entirely, cyber-security is serious, especially since ALL of your accounts, and other people's could have been compromised. You shouldn't be downloading anything that could give malware anyway.. so that one is on you unfortunately. You still have access to the game, and this site if you're looking for people to hang out with or tips/screenshots.

  15. Well, I expect WinRAR to uncompress RAR files, but maybe I am weird that way. Usually when there is a problem, it is because the file was created in Linux or using 7z. Making RAR files with 7z is a bad idea in general, and I find that files made with the Linux version of WinRAR uncompress fine on Linux but occasionally have problems on Windows, but as usual YMMV. The actual problem I had was the way Github presents file downloads, there are two ways to access them and one of them gives you a damaged file. I tested this with some other projects and got the same results. Github really needs to Git their @%$# together, or just provide the one DL link to make their site proof against idiots like me. 🤪

  17. That was actually a problem at one point on ps4 i believe. It could also be external stuff as well. In diablo 3, you can actually spawn a hacked item (not even apart of the game) drop it, then when another player picks it up.. they get banned for having it. His definition of hacked could be similar to diablo 3, or someone did something to the servers files through cheating software and perma-banned him. There is also cheating software for gta5 where you can kick people from lobby at will. But in this game, you can easily ban someone by player id based on steam. In the files, or by console commands. So i would not be surprised if that had happened. In the end though, it's not TFPs fault, that would be EACs. And OP should avoid servers that are not hosted by actual "companies" if you will, like CraftersLand for Minecraft.

  18. Hackers don’t break into people’s machines, install cheating software so they can get banned from servers…..they just don’t…….

  19. WinRAR is telling me that the "A19.4 CP47 KingGen.rar" file linked in the first post is "either in unknown format or damaged". I didn't have this problem with the file for NitroGen (A19.3 CP 47 Nitrogen.rar), but as a test I downloaded it again and the new download gives the same error as the above file. Edit: Fixed. It was a Github issue.

  20. A couple of minor points from a first time user: 1) KingGen always opens maximized, at least for me. Not a big deal, but a minor annoyance especially for large screen users. 2) KingGen does not observe "dark mode" settings. For a user who is using dark mode, a brilliant, white window suddenly filling the entire screen is bordering on painful to sensitive, old eyes. That's all for now, besides thanks for picking up the ball that was dropped with NitroGen.

  24. If you're using Ubuntu, just stick with Windows. If you look at any bloated distro using systemd, you are essentially using Windows. True Linux does not have API's and crap between the userland apps and kernel-space. Systemd is as big as the kernel (bigger?), requires apps be re-written for it, does not allow the kernel to do its thing because apps MUST go through systemd to reach the kernel, and is about as secure as a convertible with the top down parked int he middle of The Bronx in NYC. If you look at what systemd does, it literally fits the definition of malware. No thanks. I have been using Linux since around 1994 or 1995. I build absolutely everything from source, custom-tailored to my system. I use Gentoo (not for newbies) and can do almost anything in Linux. I have experience with Debian, Redhat, Void, Artix, Slackware, SUSE, PCLinuxOS, and some others I forget right now. Of those I used Debian, Redhat, Slackware, and SUSE pre-systemd. I used the others post-systemd, though I did use Gentoo back when it was called Epoch. I may know something about Linux. That said, any user wishing to leave Windows and the things which make Windows bad should try an actual Linux distro. The easiest one (easier than Ubuntu and one which uses the desktop which Microsoft has been trying to clone for decades) is PCLinuxOS. You can even run it from a DVD or USB stick to try it before you wipe your system and install it. No systemd. Graphical package manager. Even has automatic updates now, though they let you choose whether or not to update, it just tells you there are updates. It is also a far easier transition in that it doesn't use the Gnome desktop, which looks like an Apple clone, and instead uses KDE/Plasma, which is what Microsoft has been imitating forever. As for Windows, I have used 3.11, 95, 98SE, XP, and 7. Those are by far the best. 8 and 8.1 look like they need to be on a phone or tablet. 10 is just buggy to this day. Forced updates which bluescreen a PC, no control over hardware driver updates, many, many applications which run solid in 7 like to randomly crash in 10 (Ark, Cyberpunk, etc) even on the same hardware. 10 literally records everything you do and transmits it to Microsoft every so often. This does include keystrokes. In fact, this is straight from Microsoft on their "telemetry" software. Typed text sent every thirty minutes Anything recorded by a microphone Transcripts of what you use Cortana for Index of all known media files on your PC The first 35MB of data after you enable your webcam Other telemetry data not specified above In addition, Windows 10 logs the following data and you can only access and delete it if you do that stupid Microsoft account, which removes your data from your PC and makes it impossible to get back into should you forget the PIN or PW. Edge browsing history Bing search history Location activity (where you go should your system be mobile) Cortana's notebook Health activity collected by things like Health Vault or Microsoft Band Privacy settings across ALL Microsoft products you use Do you think 11 will be any better? Gentoo records and sends absolutely nothing. While the bad distros like Ubuntu don't send any telemetry data that I know of, systemd does have plenty of back-doors into it. So while I urge you to avoid distros which want to be The Borg (they use systemd), I do urge you to try it out. Most games DO run on Linux with either actual Linux support or via WINE. I am not using 10 and I will not use 11 either.

  25. Thank you very much your answer! If I didn't calculate correctly, when you see my question in, should already is late into the night. And here it is morning in China! But even in the middle of the night to receive your reply, I, as 7 d2d players think it is really very important! I'd like to, on behalf of the Chinese players thank you didn't give up any one player! At the same time, we are willing to play can be better and better, bring us more surprise! Sincerely hope that developers healthy body, the work is smooth!

  27. UPDATE: Thanks to @Ekofor posting how to repair most of this modlet for a19 (credit given on Github as well )! Because of Eko's post above, there were only a few more things to fix in this mod to get it to load without errors. If you plan on using this modlet, you might want to test it out on a new game to make sure it works as desired. I was able to get the excavators to "excavate", the Rock crusher to crush, the forge to smelt zinc/copper to brass. I didn't test with every combination, just light testing on a19.2. I had some issues with the boulder regeneration modlets that can supplement this mod, and am looking for testers to generate random worlds and let me know if it works (my system has had issues generating random worlds and often freezes. I'm on Ubuntu and not Windows though...) The mod, and the status of the others, are located here on GitHub Also, pinging those above who were asking: @Micotheone @Davidos667

  28. FYI: I will be attempting to update MeanClouds modlets for a19+ (I have MeanClouds blessing ). They will be located here on GitHub If anyone needs any a19+ updates for bug fixes for this modlet: Desired: Please tag/message me in this thread, which I will be subscribed to catch new posts. Optional: Post on my modlet page: Doughs Modlets If you have created a bug fix and want to help keep the mods updated: Desired: If you have a Github account: Submit the issue/bugfix/pull request on Github Optional: If you do not have a Github account: Submit the files/xml to the places above I know there's some fixes in this thread, which I will be looking at when I get to this modlet!

  29. So i've been playing for qute a while and i'm kinda disapointed in what i see and what i get. Back in i think it was alpha 16-17 you had action and perk points. I was thinking how cool is that, what you used you gained extra damage and i thought constructuin worked the same or it was in progress. Like as you level up construction it would place diffrent HP blocks based on perk/action point. I tought that was something really nice and inovative...but to my suprise it was removed...I said to myself ok. Then i really liked how you pick parts for miniike (back then that was only transport) and it was able to costumize to max, that was cool and i was thinking what if tire break or have engine that i need to fix. Tha was also removed.....Jail door *was* removed to so i replaced whth 2-4 x hatch doors. if developers tought that jail door was op....valut hatch 2x was now current meta. Barbed wire was now useless...more like cosmetic item than anything it can't even slow down anyone unless placed facing ground, and durability is ....well offten 10 zombies pass = broken. It was more of utility block than anything...well it got neafed to grounnd. Now it just exists but it servers no purpose or it servers as cosmetic i guess. Wooden spikes,Iron/Steel spikes are now very usless and requires constant replacments even less repair. I used to build 90% efficent way of killing everything with guns cuz i was noob. But once i figured how i can use AI as my advantige....well game is bad. Not to mentone im furios about that i can place 2-3 panels on each side of block...and it makes me mad. But also once you place panel to side of block it will count as taken block. I tought to myself what if funiture placment was notg grid baced and freeform? It would bring soo much fun and costumatization and bring more space to builds. Also i used to play no respawn of containers and amout of abundance was based on world zombie stage (25% = Very late, 100% mid zombie, 200% early zombie plauge). That was for me fine tuned game...but what i cant pass and it still not fixed....is NPC trader quest. Why dose my house that i just burned it down to ground have to be compleately made a new form air. Why not just place bunch a zombies aroud my objective or place em on under/ground and depending on if they can see light turn em on form sleepers to acitive so this option woudn't have conflict with how NPC quest works. I mean i just looted whole house burned to grond only to NPC remake it with LOOT? Also now my hoe is gone...and to make farm i need to craft farm plots? oh wait where did i get my rotten flesh ...guess form ZOMBIES...now only form bear, zombie dogs and some random placed thing on ground.... i mean seriosly. So downloaded alpha 19.5....and to my suprise ...things are not the same but things where added and some where neafed...to my gameplay it was nice. I mean you still place jail doors, but i found that valutV3 door are far more defense/HP than single vaut doror i can have 8 door in 2 blocks....Spikes are now usless more than ever. Only way to stay aliive and use less ammo with 64x Concurrent zombies is using AI pathing and combo of electic Post + Blades. I was still unable to place my workshop/forges inside my block that was took by panel. And I managed to build such a build that your only job is repair...electic posts and Blades.....it all came to that. Also i noticed that zombies run in watter...they are much faster than player in water and every single zombie is better than player. I dont even wanna talk about every zombie is muffin ficking Architect in this game....but i guess that is okay. Also there is still those vultures that have speed boost if you are driving...<instert here>. What if i wanna play on PVP server and i wanna bring horde to my enemy base...nope...cant do that or have let em chase me. @%$# that says the developer to the player, you will not use zombies for fun and any form of fun. I mean are developers creating games for fun or just money? I mean what game is and what is game now it changed....but really not that much. For my as player this game got generally good but more bad updates. So i was reading about A20.....i was really not excited about tthe update....who cares about gear sets? Better loot/more damage/more food.....who gives a crap? I guess only develpers care about it. Zombie modes are like meh...replacments, i mean fine...but that is just zombie. Aso i was kicked/banned on 7 days to die cuz i was hacked...without any warning what so ever....i mean really?

  30. I forgot to edit i was banned not in game but on discord server. I installed a malware that managed to get hold of my discord with password and send spams to other users. I managed to resotore it but mods wont unban me for things i didn't do personally.
