  1. Thanks for sharing your tool to examine POIs at a glance. However, I did have to skip downloading from the direct link as it triggered my Malwarebytes and tagged it (prob false positive) as a Trojan. Instead grabbed tool from your link on GH here instead which others may prefer too (edit: running the app triggers it still) - https://github.com/phoenix125/7dtdMapFileAnalyzer/raw/master/7dtdMapFileAnalyzer_v1.3.zip
  2. Started fresh on the recent AIO Overhaul A19 b173 V3.1 (this updated version also removed some POIs causing performance issues), however there is a POI remaining that is causing huge framerate drops down to 20fps from 90fps when I look directly at it. POI: xcostum_PetStore(by_Jackelmyer).1294 Using seed A19b173WarsUK with your own pregen map. TP to -1101.1/36.3/-673.4 (or use TPPOI) and note the drop in performance at this POI.
  3. Yip working on A19, if you prefer more traders than normal you'll have plenty and they do indeed spawn in towns as per vanilla A19. Now I just need to play around with settings to get good variety. Though I wouldn't use the experimental highway option otherwise it cuts right through hills/mountains but a neat idea nonetheless 👍
  4. Certainly a step in the right direction! Adjusting brightness was always there to help out those with budget or older monitors but it's never needed to go to max brightness - turns the dead of night into daylight. If there are some that struggled you still have some old tricks to work with or slap on ReShade or Nvidia's Freestyle etc. You'd use these to adjust tint and weak saturation and I make do with default lighting due to the huge variation in environments to get perfect. With the desert for example, it feels like bloom is on even though it's not which in turn washes out the nice detailed textures. For years these shaders have gave me some options to get it looking natural on my setup with default values using Ultra. If the new lighting system helps with higher peaks and addresses tones then great, look forward to not using any 3rd party solutions.
  5. Hi Sphereii, There is only one instance of this issue that sounds similar with the Mod Launcher upon searching the thread (here) ... I use 'Save All Games Local to Mod' option. Issue caused by selecting "Pre-Sync Mod" - the other alternative "Refresh Mods Automatically" also triggers the following popup error: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\7D2D\Alpha18\My_Mods\Undead_Legacy\Mods\UndeadLegacy\Resources\desktop.ini' is denied. If I don't select those options I can load into the game but now have to download files manually. It seems to be Mod Launcher related but please correct me if I'm wrong. Full log of exception - https://pastebin.com/adcWkM0p Thanks
  6. Yes, I do indeed see that, no idea how we can vote threads. How are the threads rated as it used to be a drop-down on the top right-hand side?
  7. Roland could you clarify if the Ratings are working as intended for threads, top-left hand side? I see there is one rating already on this OP but we can't vote. Edit: Does liking OP affect this, not really clear?
  8. Ah thanks, Edit options are working now, thanks Roland
  9. One issue, where is the "EDIT" option for post?
  10. Loving the new forum, a lot easier to read and use the site now, and so far, no problems checking out other sub-sections of the forum. Great job! 👍
  11. Very nice to help with partial stacks in vanilla that you went all out making our lives easier! Could you clarify this in OP: As it changes progression, have you tested if this is safe for dropping into existing games?
  12. War3zyk RE AIO Overhaul 2.87: Not sure what NPC it was but he very rapidly shoots fire and it wrecks terrain and blocks, plus the distance is huge and causes big FPS drops, perhaps you could nerf this?
  13. If I may, I have a relevant question to the forum display options in that the fonts are very small read and if we could have 3 options: small/medium/large? I know the font sizes are set by the poster, however, there are a lot of threads from 2018/2019 that didn't scale too well with the sexy new forum theme. P.S. Roland, since you said "all threads" please consider archiving these legacy mod threads as not every mod was uploaded to Nexus or available on GH. On that note, what about mega mod threads where the original post started before 2017 but was simply updated with each major revision and continues to be active to this day?
  14. I've used Vortex for various games since early beta while also using Sphere's Mod Launcher. Although there is support for Vortex with 7 Days to Die it is better supported with the Mod Launcher including separate folders for mods including Darkness Falls and savefiles, it can manage installed modlets too. Using the Mod Launcher and keep Vortex won't cause issues with other games. If you intend to switch over it's best if you do this fresh, so, for example, use the Mod Launcher for Darkness Falls and it'll manage everything. Then if you wish to continue using Vortex for modded vanilla you can do that. Note that if you modded vanilla it is important for the Mod Launcher that you either copy a fresh-vanilla 7DTD or you can enter your Steam credentials and it'll do that for you.
  15. The issue was resolved by simply restarting my PC. Just so you know; that error popped up right after I ran Mod Launcher and it the proceeded to update with the new WOTW mod added and restarted hence that popup. Once PC was restarted I could then select and download fresh 18.4 stable and WOTW. Certainly wasn't spamming anything cos I was sitting happily eating my sandwich. Side-note: If people are having issues with WOTW V7 Beta for A18.4 not installing correctly, Dwall won't be able to look at it until tomorrow, it's not an issue with the Mod Launcher
