  1. Thought I'd make a single post for all my modlets that work on A19. Basically it's all the various A18 ones, tested and adjusted if necessary to make sure they work on A19. There's also a few new ones that I thought folks might like. All of these are XML only. Enjoy. 3 Slot Forge - Adds an extra input slot to the forge and moves the UI around a little so there's no window overlap. 12 Slot Crafting Queue - Increases the crafting queue from 4 slots to 12. Scrap everything! 60 Slot Backpack - Pretty self explanitory. 60 Slot Backpack (with Food/Water bars) - As a

  2. Survivors, Avoiders, and Maniacs! Since a lot of people are sitting at home and are looking to kill some time, we would like to offer you guys a chance to bite A19's bugs before they even arrive on EXP. You will need to be able to communicate in english. Broken, fluid, native speaker, avid learner, as long as you can describe an issue, you are fine, fear not. Builds are coming regularly, having to start over up to several times a day should not be an issue, if you are interested. For communication we will provide a discord server where you can report bugs, talk to other peo

  3. Welcome to the Alpha 19 Dev Diary. As of this time we don't even know what to call Alpha 19. It might be small named updates like "The New Combat Book Update" which could start at "19.0", with the "Vehicle Update" landing on 19.2, etc. What we do know is we're working on some new books, a vehicle update, etc but how and when we roll out what is to be determined. Hopefully it can be several point release patches to get you guys more frequent updates over 6-12 months instead of one big drop in a year. Weapons Update All weapon types will have 3 tiers.

  4. A20 NEWS!!!!!!! Started on the water overhaul this week. I'm working on the water chunk data and another programmer will be doing simulation/mesh changes. My plan is water will not be a block, but additional chunk data, which is a pretty big change. It makes more sense, since any block could have water in it while still being whatever block it is.

  8. They mostly come out at night... (V3.3A) This is a mod I originally created to fix a few "issues" myself, my wife and some friends felt the game had. Turns out I really enjoy modding so I've expanded on it quite a bit. The intent is to drag out the early game, so it will take you longer than usual to get to Iron and Steel. I've also tried to inject a little realism by locking away quite a few recipes behind perks, since most normal folks wouldn't know how to do/make those things. Also, I started playing in Alpha 8, so I wanted to try and bring back a fe

  9. I have made a lot of data changes and code cleanup for water, but it looks exactly the same at this point, so nothing new to show currently. I am taking a break from water and have spent the last few work days deleting old shaders (50+) and related files (old mats/images/prefabs/code) and renaming shaders into proper Game/ categories. Shaders are a big chunk of the game's build time and many of the deleted ones were being included in the build.

  12. TL-DR: I already expect over half you people to go "Get Gud Scrub" But seeing as Ive been playing this game for THOUSANDS of Hours, you can go F$%k Right off. Ive enjoyed this game since EARLY Alphas and Ive never honestly felt this terrible about the game. Even the alpha 17 update didnt make me feel this terrible about playing a game Ive LOVED.

  13. No you guys are not players, you are back seat designers who want a grindy complicated sharp stick fest (well most of you anyway). Players are guys who just bought the game today, and maybe guys who play 20 or 100 hours. You guys are obsessed and have 5000 hours and because of that you want more and more challenge. If you could mind wipe you would just get in and enjoy the game more now than ever but because you are tainted with 18 alphas that cannot be undone. I think the game is way way way way way too easy. But I have 15000 hours so I cannot take my experience and pass that on to a new play

  14. I've found a client-side workaround for this AI problem that could save the development team a huge amount of time that could be spent elsewhere; Start a game as normal - any difficulty setting will do. Build a base as you normally would. The materials you use don't matter. Now, and I stress that you need to follow this next part EXACTLY, otherwise the AI fix won't work; Don't build exploits in your base If you follow these steps, you should find that the AI pathing issues resolve themselves and you get the survival experience you're looking for.

  15. *** SEEDS FOR Alpha 19.0 Stable *** Huh... I'd have to spend a lot of time here to do this. I have about 200 different seeds for alpha 19 experimental, half 4k and half 8k. I have previews from all of them publicly available here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ljjksykyenytm3e/AAAh0mf_CBnXW92eVl5i-EF1a?dl=0 To generate and analyse these seeds I use scripts that are freely available here: https://github.com/dcsobral/seedGen All my 8k seeds have 10 traders, all my 4k seeds have 5 traders.

  17. Do you know that this is a team with many different skill sets, like pretty much every game team? Most people on the team can't fix FPS issues, so they do spent their time working on their "stupid" stuff. FPS issues don't have an "I Win" button you can press to make it all better. It takes lots of time to analyze performance and find bottlenecks, which then often have no easy fix, but to rewrite and retest something, which often results in minimal gains. Features have maximum limits at which they can be optimized to run. I've actually been spending half my time the last

  21. I thought the deco writes were 0 as the log says, so it was confusing what was going on, but it turns out the list is cleared before the log happens, so it is writing out, in a 8k world, about 71000 entries, totally over 1 MB. Tried on my HD, but still not horribly slow, then on a flash drive, which gave a 7 second write time! The save timer is every minute, but there is a dirty check, so it does not always do the save. The deco save code was changed a few months ago by another programmer to fix a problem with old saves, so it might have been only doing partial saves before, but si

  25. One of my favorite aspects of the game in recent alphas is how they took the focus off of the player as the center of the universe. You can see a horde and they aren't walking straight at you. Details like this really make you feel part of the world rather than that feeling that the world was created for you. Here is a small clip of Alpha 19 I was allowed to share. It shows a bit of the new music and there is this point where you can see what I'm talking about where you aren't the focus of the world. You might catch sight of one of the new zombies as well..

There is no further need to talk about this as the proper people who needed to see your feedback have seen it and will make their decision on the artistic representation of the zombies as well as the relative strengths and weaknesses between zombie types.

  38. This is what I'm testing now which will be in the next build unless I change it again: Changed: All small game (rabbits and chickens) and large game (boars, and deer) spawn every day or night at any time. Small game has a high chance to spawn, large game has a low chance to spawn. Large Predator animals such as bears and dire wolves only spawn at night in the forests. Wolves have a very small chance to spawn in forests during the day Changed: Enemy respawn time is reduced in the wasteland. At night, Zombies will respawn immediately, making the wasteland harder to survive

  39. BTW guys, just because the trader doesn't give you a dig quest right away doesn't mean there isn't any viable spots in the area, it is random. The next day there might be dig quests available. Yikes, I haven't seen ANY of that, that looks pretty bad. FYI, RWG will be a strike teams top focus for A20. We're going to give Robert all the support he needs to get it shippable once and for all. Closer quest POIs will be part of that improvement as well as fixing roads and issues like this.

  40. You think I don’t know the rules for this thread let alone the whole forum and that I just go off assumptions based upon emotional outbursts by Madmole and never have direct conversations with him where he says, “Roland, let’s try and do a better job keeping the mod talk out of the dev diary”? When you say that sometimes a mod brings better balance, what you mean is that a mod sometimes makes the game feel better and more fun FOR YOU. But by all means keep bring up mods in this thread and see what happens...

  44. Title. Reading the notes for A19 and all of the B's after it: they state they are nerfing alot of perks, and nerfing the ability to find high tier loot like shotguns early on, and have this overly convoluted thing about how they are going to make progress feel "more natural" I'll Tell you one thing that would make progress feel natural, is the "spam crafting" items back, and items levels 1thru 100 that slowly progresses as you use the skill more and more, the skill gets better. (remember athletics? that felt more natural, the more you run the better you are at running

  47. I just wanted to let you guys know that the Streamer Weekend is tentatively scheduled to start June 26th. I just gave that date to the streamers and know that many will begin hyping it to their viewers and then it would get back to here and then you guys would be upset that you had to hear about it from outside sources. So I'm telling you now that Friday June 26th is our hopeful date but it isn't guaranteed. If TFP feels they must delay another week then they will. But that means that Monday June 29th should be a VERY GOOD DAY. (knock on wood)

  48. I will take the blame for sharing my enthusiasm with the fans. Some TFP members agreed a shorter cycle was a great idea in principal so I said that on the forums, but nobody wanted to do the graphics overhaul in a side branch or to deal with merging 3-4 months later so we just did the work and now we are here. Things change so what we intend one month is not the intent the next. Game development isn't flipping burgers, nobody can predict how long something will take. I can predict that 19 will take much less time than 18 did, and 18 took less than 17 so things are getting better. We should
