Ravenhearst 4.1 Mini Review
Let's get down to it. First, I have 6666 hours played on 7 Days to Die, so I think I know the game well. I bought the game in December 2014 (A10.1, updated to A10.2 a few days later). To this day, I have not found a game that I love as much as I love 7 Days to Die.
A REVIEW of RAVENHEARST 4.1
The positive: There isn't any!
The negative: Too much to fit all in here!
WAIT!!! That's not right!!!
Seriously, this is my favorite mod. You still feel like you're playing 7 Days to Die. Nothing wrong with other mods (Starvation, Medieval for example), but I want zombies, not Tigers, rhinos and horses; or a Skyrim clone... Sorry Gup!). And there's plenty of zombies, almost unbearable at first, but once you get into it, it just feels right.
For single players, this is a slow progression mod (I hate you JAX! ), but it's not a bad thing really, just something to get used too.
Some of the new zombies are pretty awesome; I like the skeletons and other nighttime zombies a lot; some look better than the vanilla zombies; the animation could use some work on some of them.
The new POIs are nice. I love the flatter landscape; you can build just about anywhere; that's a problem in vanilla right now, too much elevation (I mean some roads go up 45 degrees! The minibike struggles to get up those vanilla roads).
Less grass is also a good thing, easier to see stuff on the ground. Speaking of grass (Ha Ha!); that is my one thing I don't like, the drug related stuff, it just isn't my thing, plus it's not needed at all in this game, should be replaced with something useful.
The funny thing with this mod is, I don't die in the first few days, but get wrecked later on when I get too confident.
People with slow, old computers will have a hard time with this one, compared to vanilla 7 Days to Die, since there's so much stuff in it. But of course, you want a gaming computer to play computer games, not some low grade laptop only good enough to access websites.
All in all, great mod. Thanks Jax and all who contributed to Ravenhearst for all the hard work… Now, it's time to start a new game with version 4.2
Can't wait to see Ravenhearst on Alpha 17... It can only get better!
P.S.: Ravenhearst 4.2 is just as great, if not better. (Added on 06 August 2018)
