  1. Sorry if this has already been answered.


    If you are the wrong target for this question I apologize.


    With A20 will Custom POI's auto download from the server that is hosting 7D2D?

    This used to be the way at least for POI's and went away I think in A18 (I may mis-remember when).

    It was a pretty cool feature and made it much easier than trying to walk non tech friends / family through how to copy the files to the correct directory.


    Thanks for your time and insight.

    Catapult. We will happily send you to your destination. How you land is up to you. 😄

    I would love to see a launch trap.  Maybe something similar to the sledge turret, but a way to launch the zeds in a specific direction.  Heck if you could make the sledge turret static and not oscillate as an option that may just work.

  3. Anyone else's sledge turrets not working?

    I can use it in my hand manual, but when on the ground, the zeds just walk all around it. 

    The turret seems active, its laser is going and its panning back and forth, but never fires.


    This is my first time to actually use them, but I saw them working on some of the earlier streams so not sure if this is a bug that just got introduced.

    Has anyone else have the issue of long time creating maps... before it would take the server about 30 min to create a 8192 map.. now over 4hrs.. kind of crazy...

    I am assuming your talking on a dedicated server.

    I had similar issues, like the RWG was hung up on a process but never timed out.


    I ended up creating a RWG in the game client, and copying the world files to the server and used the same seed name / size and it ran up in just minutes.

    Hello  i was trying to load compo  pack on to a server box  with root  access and  i kept getting  these errors over and over anyone  have any  ideas?  I was able to load the exact same file  fine on Nitrogen and  my  personal Pc


    You say you have root access.  Does 7d2d have root access though?  It reads like the 7d2d exe doesnt have permissions to read that item.

    Just conjecturing.  Thinking from the Windows server flow.  You may need to run 7d2d as administrator.


    Good luck.

  6. Is there an updated guide for this process, or is this process still basically the same?

    I tried looking up the bad company manager but the git hub says it hasn't been updated in 2 years.

    So wondering if my present dedicated server (Windows 10, with Alloc's fixes and Server Tools installed) will work with the processes.



  7. @madmole


    Are there plans to re-visit the apartment building (sorry I dont know the POI name)  its the one thats 4 or 5 stories, very square shaped and each apartment has its own balcony.  Top floor has skylights in 2 of the apartments.


    We ran into this one yesterday (hadn't seen it in a while).  It was pretty meh compared to all the new and re-vamped POI's.  But the building looks like you could do a great dungeon rework on it.  Heck even just an update that brings it on par with the other buildings.


    A19 has been very solid and impressive.  The game is better than ever. 

    Thanks for all of TFPs  hard work. 

  8. @Damocles


    Is there a way to tone back the number of the Factories that spawn.   In the last gen I did with Nitrogen, there were so many Shotgun Messiah and Shamway Factories.  In a few cases there were 2 Shotgun factories within blocks of each other.


    Thanks for your time and insight.

    I haven’t played since it was added to the game but here is where I would look: 

    Search for storage box

    Craft it

    Put it on your toolbar

    Hold “r” select it from the radial menu

    Sorry I may of not been clear.


    If you get it from the creative menu, it makes one of those square storage boxes.  But its names Writeable Storage Box.

    You can give it a name after you put it where you want it, and while staring at it hold E and there is a write option.


    The issue is we cannot find it in the crafting menu, to actually create it with in game materials.


    EDIT - NM I see what you mean, its from the default storage box.   Thank you and @wolfbain5

  10. Writable Storage Box  - this was added in the previous exp.  


    I cant seem to find it in the crafting menu.

    I can find it in the creative menu.


    Had my wife look as well, since I often miss the snake right in front of me.


    Are we not squinting our eyes enough or is it missing from the crafting menu?



  11. So running map generated with latest Nitrogen on the latest exp 169.  Pure Vanilla POI's

    We started playing the map on the exp version prior (forget the number).  All seemed good on the exp prior.


    In the latest exp, we have had some buildings collapse in spots, for no apparent reason.  In fact while riding our bikes through a city we started hearing some collapses in buildings we were passing by.  They did not seem to have issues in the previous exp. 


    EDIT --  To be clear we did not start a new game, we continued with the previous save.


    I am not saying this is a Nitrogen thing / issue.  Just seeing if any others have had similar experiences.


    On a side note / question.

    When playing the Nitrogen maps, we are noticing an excessive amount of the Shotgun Messiah and Shamway factory's.  In fact have had them show up  within a few blocks of each other.


    What can I tweak to only have them spawn only in City's and only once per city?


    We are running up a new Map for this exp just using TFP's generator to give it a go and check it out, but I am positive we will be running another Nitrogen map in the near future.


    Thanks for the work you do.



  12. I am running on current exp of 7d2d, with a nitrogen made map.  No issues at this time, so I do not think there is an issue or conflict on the new version of the game.


    just my experiences.

    Can you explain how you go about using that command?  Can I use that to give others on the serve the XP?  Thanks.

    its an admin command you do in the F1 console.   I do not know of a way to give xp to another player though.


    giveselfxp => usage: giveselfxp 10000

    Those that are having repercussions from previous save(s) its always the best idea to start a new game and new map with each new build.

    Expect oddities if carrying on from a previous save file with experimental.

    Totally understand.  Just sharing my update experience.

    Always expect oddities.


  14. Similar to what others posted.  Logged in with the update and am back to level 1.

    But my land claim as well as my inventory and base are all intact. 

    Guess I will be using the giveselfxp command to get back to level.


    Dedicated server and the same to my wifes character as well.


    Not fussing just sharing experience.... er well lack of that is.

    Did you go into high Tier building to meed the feral? Like Shotgun Messiah factory or alike? 

    I don't think it was high tier.  But I could be wrong.  It was one of the clothing stores.  Cop was in the office area and the feral was in a back room that was semi difficult to get to.    Was actually my first time to see that particular building.


    The other one was a big Grocery/meglomart store with a huge hole in the middle.  My firsts to see that one as well.

    Im not using compopack yet, and i am having the same problem with those blocks when playing with my borther on multiplayer (im the host).


    Some prefabs (all vanilla) have those "black granite" blocks instead windows, the trash cans are green blocks. My brother see everything fine, just me have the problems.


    We dont have that problem on worlds generated by the game itself.


    My wife and myself have seen similar issues, both on single play and in multiplayer.  Both without using Nitrogen.

    Usually an exit of the game and coming back in clears it up.

    Others have reported this in the A19 dev blog as well.

  17. Day 1, 2, 3.....  Bears Bears everywhere.... many times 2 within a few meters of each other.

    Me thinks a little to much bear.   wolves and dire wolves too.


    I have ran into 2 Cops already, as well we had 2 ferals sleepers in the same time frame.   I don't think I have ever ran into a cop much less a feral in the first 7 days.


    Also seems to be many more Zeds in the wild at this early stage.  My wife commented on this on day 1, and by day 3 was like they definitely have changed the spawns.


    I know Joel @madmole updated the spawns of the animals but I don't recall seeing any changes on the Zed spawn tables.


    So, anyone else having similar?


    Yes we started a brad new save / map, dedicated server.
