    Are there any plans to make the zombies more satisfying to shoot/damage? For example: a bullet hole or stab wound being left on the zombies. Or maybe at least increase the amount of blood that come from the zombies.

    Voxel based zombies?

    It would be cool if someone created a nitrogen-esque tool for remapping the perks before starting a new game. Even a random shuffle could prove to be an interesting experience.

    Never in all my years have I agreed more to what you just said. This and your spongebob quotes of course.

    Nah thanks. What if you accidentally scrap that level 5 iron pickaxe you just found instead of equipping it? What if you scrap those radiators by accident? Or those first aid bandages? It would be a frustrating nightmare that would inevitably come to bite you from behind sometime or another. Perhaps the standard should be 5 seconds.

     

    Maybe it could be tied to a specific macro, like how holding shift + left click moves stuff automatically from one container to the other. Could be alt + right click to scrap. Then the hotkey (s) could be removed to prevent accidents. Just spitballing here.

    These are the planned vehicle mods:

     

    Fuel Saver - Works

    Off Road Headlights - Works

    Super Charger -  Works

    Expanded Seat - TODO

    Reserve Fuel Tank - Working on today

     

    None of them are fully done, since they still need icons, schematics and put in loot lists.

     

    Drone should be in a20.

     

    Idea for the sequel is to have it so vehicles leave trails in any soft ground.  That way we can make organic trails on the map.  Like turning top soil into gravel as you drive over it. Idk 🤷‍♂️

  6. https://www.skilledsurvival.com/clay-pot-candle-heater/#:~:text=Once constructed%2C the heater body,to heat the clay pots.

     

    Tldr if you don't want to read entire article.

     

    The pot acts as a heat battery basically keeping the warm air close to the floor and not the ceiling. Enough to warm your hands, etc. Meaning after the pot saves up enough heat you'll be able to feel it radiate off. Candles by themselves send the heat straight up where it gets stuck.

     

    They do work at making the heat of a candle more useful.

  7. I mean, does it really matter at this point? The forums are pretty much dead now and besides Faatal, none of the devs post here anymore.  Well madmole once in a blue moon but ya, awfully quiet around here now days.  Do what you feel is right though of course 😉

    Hello, will A20 include anymore books?  All other weapons have a corresponding volume of books except Knives and Sledgehammers.  I know Night Stalker has some knife related perks but they feel ancillary and situational for a stealth build.  I know your a stickler for continuity so I just thought I'd mention it.

    Hello everyone, I heard there was once a dog companion planned but then got cancled. Is there for the future any other kind of npc companion planned?

    Thanks for your time :)

     

    In A20 if you max out the Strength tree you'll get a little Madmole companion.  All he does is comment on how he'd own you at Quake and make fun of your little bird arms.  Once in a while he'll tell you to "get to the choppa", it's a fine addition to the game.

    I totally agree with this. Min maxing is natural, yet the most unnatural thing to do to your game and is assured to kill the fun after the first time or two. The fun is building a memorable character who HAS character. It is mostly pre RPG people who bought it for survival, zombies etc. The people now coming on board buying it for the RPG factors seem to love what is possible with the perk system and the role playing you can do. I'd call it a light RPG, but just like with building you can build a box to live in or a castle. You can choose not to role play, or do some very creative things with it, that = fun game play.

    Styx's whole thing is role playing whether he knows it or not. He still min maxes, but he self imposes some things that make the game fun for him. The same can be done with role playing. Limiting what guns you use, deciding what food you are allergic to and can't eat, maybe you get too hot in heavy armor or it's itchy. Maybe you are claustrophobic, or need to have 4 concrete walls to sleep. Maybe you are a total nomad. Whatever you choose, it helps make each play through unique and fun.

    I can fire up Skyrim, after 9 years and 1000's of hours and as long as I role play some new stuff I haven't done 20 times before, it can turn into a lot of fun. Once I start min maxing it though it goes to crap quick then I want to quit or start  new character.

    Role Play is nice, but having an in game Character generator with strengths and weaknesses would be epic. dlc?  Examples:

     

    "Click to Generate"

     

    "Survivor Dixie Normas"

     

    Traits:

    + Shamburger Helper (starts knowing a random food recipe)

    + Good Looking (gets a 1% discount at traders)

     

    - Empty Headed (easily concussed)

    - Bed Wetter (lose hydration 30% faster at night)

     

    "Click to Confirm"

    I personally believe the marksman rifle and the hunting rifle are fine the way they are, especially since a new T3 sniper rifle is coming in A19, but we'll have to wait and see. But I completely agree with you on the magnum. My current build is agility-based, and after finding a T5 magnum recently, I crafted 500 AP magnum ammo and about the equivalent amount of regular ammo for it. Huge waste. The magnum cannot take a silencer (to my knowledge), making it pointless for any and all stealth scavenge raids. Unless you're playing on, like, 16 max alive during blood moons, the magnum can never hold its own. It has a terribly slow reload, it only has a half-dozen shots in the cylinder (nothing you can do about that), and worse still, even on Nomad difficulty, it takes several shots to drop the average radiated... and those are headshots! I bet you that the upcoming Desert Vulture will replace it outright unless some serious rework is done to the magnum, which is just a glorified hunting rifle in my eyes.

    I feel like it could be shifted over to the legendary tier list once that comes. Same with any other art asset that got the chop.         

    That way you can give it special treatment and have some cool buffs, damage, etc tied to it.

     

    Since A19 is gonna have the DV, I can see more players thinking the .44 revolver as more of an outlier and not a worthwhile weapon. The regular pistol is better in every way practically. Might even out dps it. Especially when you get the bigger magazine mods.

    Please post your suggestions under Pimp Dreams, located here: https://community.7daystodie.com/forum/9-pimp-dreams/

    Might as well tell him not to post at all. Nobody from the Pimps ever look in/comment on that thread lol.  

     

    As for A19 I have a good feeling it might break concurrent player records.  With everything going on there's gonna be a lot of people at home and looking to decompress a little.  

     

    For the turret thing I also noticed if I leave a game and load back in while I'm standing on sideways bars I end up below them. As if it's not a real block or something. I'm thinking some blocks, for whatever reason have trouble registering as a solid when things are placed inside their "shell".

  13. So I just started playing Terraria and to my surprise they have a Blood Moon event. Dozens of zombies trying to eat my pixels just like this game, sky even turns red.  

     

    Is this where the idea came from for this game? I thought it was an original idea all this time. It's literally called a Blood Moon.
