  1. Getting used to playing game's with a mouse and keyboard can be a little tricky at first. It took me about a week and a half before I felt fully comfortable with it! The only game's that gave me issues in terms of the controls on PC was the original Mafia and Project Zomboid (eventually I did get the hang of it though). Playing first person shooters with a mouse and keyboard however... oh my goodness. It's sublime! 😘👌
  2. 44. Magnum all the way. Because, you know, Rick Grimes?
  3. You and me both, brother! 😀 Going from playing this game on consoles to now playing it on PC has been quite the experience. Feels like a whole new game, which in many cases, it is I guess. Everything just feels so much more polished! I should've switched to PC years ago. I was also wondering whether alpha's could transfer over as well. Glad I know not to get overly attached to my save file now since alpha 19 is due to release sometime soon. Just about to try and start a nice little potato farm too! Poor potatoes. Now I'm just gonna have to boil 'em instead... 😖
  4. Hmmm, interesting. I think I'll turn the water quality all the way down then because I've also noticed some slight issues there as well. Shadows will definitely be staying on, though! The game can look a bit bland without them in my opinion. I'm not much of a fan of the motion blur and depth of field either, so I have those turned off too, but I've left the Sun Shafts on. Gotta love Sun Shafts! 😉 I've also turned the UMA textures all the way down, and increased normal textures to Ultra. Not sure if that's recommend but everything looks great and runs smoothly so I guess I'm good. The rest are on a mixture of medium and high for now.
  5. Absolutely! 👍 This was one of the main reasons I came back to the forums actually, because I know there are a lot of knowledgeable people here that know a lot about PC's and hardware. If I ever need to call upon someone for help in the future I most certainly will, perhaps someone like SylenThunder since I know he'd be more than happy to give me his undying assistance, I'll just have remind myself to catch him at a time when he's well caffeinated as I know how he gets when he's not had his morning cup of tea. Trololol! ☕😁 Are there any tips you can give me on in-game graphical settings? I've read that the "reflection" options are still a little unoptimized on PC, and that it's best to turn those off which I have. What does UMA textures mean? Would you recommend turning those down to the lowest and increasing texture quality instead, or vise versa? I'm still in the tweaking phase right now and I'm trying to find the best and most optimal settings that isn't going to put unnecessary stress on my system. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  6. 😞 Ah, man. It's painful to see console players still hanging around hoping there will be new updates. Not as many of you left now... As someone who used to be in the same boat, I can understand your pain and despair. The way I see it, you guys on consoles have two options. You can either wait until the next gen consoles arrive later this year and hope a new fully updated version of 7DTD gets ported over, or you can put that money you're saving up for a next gen console towards a gaming PC instead. Personally I recommend the latter option. You can buy a decent mid-range gaming PC for around £500-700 now, which is only slightly more than what a next gen console will probably cost. And you'll earn that money back because games are much cheaper on PC (especially if you wait for sales), and you also don't have to pay for online subscriptions either. It's by far the best option! Plus, you'll be able to play all the other great survival games that PC has to offer as well. I know it's not what you guys want to hear, but unfortunately, this is the reality of the situation. You ARE much better off switching over to PC this generation, and as someone who just did the same thing I highly recommend it. 🤷‍♂️
  7. Haha! Thank you, Gazz. I missed your humour. 😂 Duly noted! 👍
  8. Thank you Liesel Weppen, you offered some really nice pointers and tips there. And yes, I know, it's always MUCH better to build your own rig's rather than buying them prebuilt. But unfortunately that option for me was just not feasible at this moment as it was important to me that I had a computer within a small time frame. I was also starting completely from scratch, too! Not only did I have to get a computer, but I also had to get a monitor, mouse and keyboard, and a new desk as well for it all to sit on. Researching individual PC parts on top of everything else would've just been a little too much for me I feel, given my very limited knowledge on building PC's, so I just opted for the prebuilt route instead due to it being much easier and less time consuming. Plus, the PC I bought was on offer for £500 with Windows 10 already installed and a free year of BullGuard so it seemed like a no-brainer to me considering that was within my budget. SSD will be my first upgrade then! Thinking about it now it does make the most sense. The graphics card can wait too, because right now I am happy with how it's performing for the time being. I've tested a bunch of games such as The Long Dark, Mist: Survival, Stranded Deep, Project Zomboid, Far Cry 2 (the best one in the series in my opinion), the original Mafia, Alan Wake (It was on sale for £1.54) and 7 Days To Die. So far they're all running amazingly well on this system and many of those games can be played with the graphics maxed out! It's honestly surpassed my expectations. I'll just upgrade each component one-by-one over time when necessary. Seems like the easiest way to go about it for me rather than just jumping straight into the deep end... 🤷‍♂️ Your PSU tips/suggestions have been noted, too. Cheers for that! 👍
  9. 🙋‍♂️ Hello PC gamers! It's been a while since I last visited the forums. I'm happy to see there are still a lot of familiar faces here! I just finally made the jump from consoles to PC about two weeks ago or so, and I just wanted to pop in and say I'm really impressed with this game so far on PC, especially in comparison to the PS4 version which I put at least 500+ hours into and loved every second of it. Here on PC however, this game is truly a whole different beast now, and it was kind of shocking to see just how much it has changed. It's honestly amazing! I'm also really happy to see that the game itself is performing really well on my potato-ish system. The frame rate is very smooth, even with a mixture of medium and high graphic settings, which was very surprising considering I've read countless threads talking about the game being severely unoptimized. Maybe I'm just used to playing this game on consoles? I don't know. Either way, the graphics and performance on PC absolutely BLOWS the console version's out the water, and I'm over the moon to be finally playing the definitive version of a game I cherish. For anyone wondering, my PC specs are... AMD Ryzen 3 2300x quad core processor Nvidia GTX 1050ti 16GB of DDR4 Corsair ram 1TB hard drive 450w PSU It's a prebuilt PC. My plan was to get a mid-range gaming PC for now, and then slowly upgrade it over time. My first two upgrades will be the PSU and GPU. I'm looking to get a 700w PSU, upgrading the GPU to an Nvidia GTX 1660 Super (there will be a slight bottleneck with the CPU I know), and then topping it off with an SSD for good measure. For those of you who are a lot more "tech savvy" than I am, feel free to give me some tips on upgrades and such because this is still all very new and interesting to me as newcomer to the world of PC gaming. Thank you Fun pimps! Thank you mods on the forums! Stay safe, and God bless you all. 🙏
