Exactly. I think I am the one that brought up child zombies about 2 weeks ago. thats when "+ No Child Zombies in A18" was added to the front page. No one every got beack to my question but that same day that popped up so it answered my questions lol.

This really needs 0 discussion until alpha 19+ as the devs clearly do not want that spoken about. We have enough dead horses to beat on haha

 

not even a dead horse more like the Dust of the dead horse

Better than when you have a boy. I had over 100 darth mauls new in package to sell for a profit hopefully one day when I saw 1977 Darth Vaders selling for 1500. Well needless to say he found every one and opened them up, cut him in half for light saber fights, etc.

 

lol...sorry to hear that. Kids can be...amazing lol. Kids can be kind, loving, and just all around cute and little devils at the same time. Children, weird creatures I say. :rapture:

Being able to do a start from a hospital bed and sneak/run for my life out of the hospital would be an awesome start alternative. Fantastic idea!

 

That sounds fun. Choose your own adventure.

 

1) spawn in as patient in hospital

2) student in school

3) military personnel in camp

4) prisoner in prison *wink*

 

Sounds like a fantastic mod.

 

Or else... the player could spawn in a graveyard ! And get picked up by a doctor. His memory would be lost of course, but he would quickly learn he used to be a courier and would have to discover who tried to murder him. Damn, that idea is so cool, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get rich. Bye bye loosers, I'll come back in my private jet.

Actually, life in Uruguay is a bit better (Right now) in general terms, a couple of years ago, Argentinian Peso was x10 the Uruguayan peso, now Argentinian Peso is almost the same as Uruguayan Peso.

 

If you do some research you'll find some of the reasons I believe Uruguay is a little bit better than Argentina (from an objective point of view).

Both Argentinian (as you said, that "suicide" wasn't a suicide at all) and Uruguayan governments are very corrupt as usual. Hope this change some day.

 

Yeah I'm hoping that as well man. I remember that there was an official exchange rate for the peso, and a blue-market exchange rate.. Was there also such a thing in Uruguay?

I could see the ferry leaving to Uruguay from the office.. never went on it though.

 

All in all, a very beautiful part of the world. I also visited Salta and the area around San Juan. Unfortunately I wasn't allowed to visit the production office in the town of Nuequén.. because the name of that town sounds like 'having sex' in Dutch ^-^

Didn't one of the Resident Evil movies start that way?

 

I had a few zombie movies pop in my head. its not an oginal idea. Personally i think waking up in a hospital is over used. Maybe waking up in the morgue because you accidentally was pronouced dead right as the zombie outbreak started. Upon waking up you memories are gone. now thats original....i think lol

I never had an issue in A17. Have you guys tried looking at your server host as the possible problem is this an issue that all servers are having?

 

It doesn't matter who hosts it, it'll chug down or freeze several times during a 7D horde and zombies will keep moving forward or stop. No helpful debugging information is outputted to the console of the server process, just stops responding and has to be killed. It happens too often to bother trying to play through a 7D horde together. It's not a matter of horsepower or RAM or anything like that, it's just the 7DtD server process craps out, both on Linux and on Windows.

 

If there was some way to turn on additional debugging information, that would be cool, but I'm not aware of a way to do so.

We did stuff like this in game at start of a new server;

We would use the inventory & place a damaged vehicle, scatter some supplies you would have in a car & what you would take on a hunting, fishing trip with friends & spawn in on it. We would place it near the Church in Nav W. of the town & even place a couple corpses around for friends that did not survive the crash.

The scenario was we crashed in the forest looking for a camping spot & while we were unconscious the Infection started.

We came up with a bunch of scenarios in early Alpha's before RGW & had a lot of fun.

We dug a 3 X 1 Tunnel at Bed Rock from the Gas Station E of the Town S to another POI near the Desert Border & filled it with TNT. Then WOLF set it off at 1 end & I waited at the other end to see how long it took to get to me. I waited for about 15 minutes playing time & started hearing some rumbling. Then as it got closer I could see the Z's coming in & it got louder & louder, then we met in the middle to see the damage, that just wasn't fun, it was AWESOME...

It takes a very special type of person to have the much coveted geologist job. Only few people are worthy of such a heavenly job, am I right or am I right. Can I get a rock on instead of a hallelujah people. Rock on! =P

But is this a problem every single server is having...thats the question.

I never had this is in 17.0-17.3 and I have not heard of a single report from friends or players regarding this issue. Believe me you, within my network of friends they report to me every little and huge issue with the game so that I could pass the info along to the Q&A testers, my friends are to lazy to write up a report or talk with the testers in private lol.

 

All that said, I'll bet its your server host....it sounds a lot like a lack of power server side.

 

 

 

So if it is indeed only your server and not every single one then I would say its a problem with your server host and not the game.

Try 2 months or more ago.

Lol, I'm willing to bet an easy 1st version modlet is to change all the starting spawn points to said coordinates and let players fill in the blank where they are at and why....

 

I'd called the modlet Navesgane+ since it would be a more challenging start then vanilla. 😎

Drugs and Kids are off limits in a few nations, not just Australia, even in the US (child nudity). Doesn't matter it its real or not, its the depiction of the acts which are against the community expectations.

 

It has nothing to do with 'retards', "who claim video game violence translates to real world violence", not related to the laws. lol

 

I didn't say that the retards are the sole determinant to banning such things.

 

I think you will find the people who issue bans are not the players but those who work in positions that decide for us, on our behalf what we may or may not be offended by in what we see or hear.

 

There is an excellent talk by Christopher Hitchens on free speech where he articulates this point infinitely better than I could.

 

I have no problem with violence against children if these children are undead creatures or mutants that are so far dettached from reality as to make it an absurdity to complain about killing them.

 

Added to the fact that other games have this stuff in it and theres no worldwide significant outcry sufficient to have these things completely banned from games. This should tell you that open discussion is not only warranted but required in order to determine what gets into games and what doesn't, for which age range, and who should be making those decisions and for what reasons.

 

You will soon see my point that it isn't as much gamers as uneducated mouthpieces or government employees who get to decide what you may be offended by before you're even exposed to the material.

 

I fully accept Dimpy's point but I have to say the question of who wants it vs who doesn't wasn't my point.

 

It was having them vs not having them and looking at the country law based prohibition, and whether or not The Pimps would give those limiting areas the middle finger and my assumption that many would be in favour or want child zombies added.

 

Although, Dimpys point is very important in highlighting how many people want it vs how many people are just ok with it. Perhaps a poll would be beneficial so we could actually gather some data on what the playerbase want? 🤔

 

I personally want to see more zombie types and models in the game to make it a little more 'complete.'

 

The same handful of Zombies in the apocalyptic aftermath gets rather boring after a while.

I never had this is in 17.0-17.3 and I have not heard of a single report from friends or players regarding this issue. Note: I also ran a server during this time.

 

So if it is indeed only your server and not every single one then I would say its a problem with your server host and not the game.

 

I just said it doesn't matter who hosts the game, it craps out, and we've started new games on 17.3. Also how is any of what you said helpful especially after telling you it doesn't matter which one of us hosts the game? X3

 

Well now you have heard of someone reporting problems!

So random radiation storms are off the table because they encourage afk, but what about random anti-rad storms? Would give early-game players who are willing to "get off their ass" and act uder a strict time limit a chance at getting some later-game rewards.

 

Are you suggesting a period of time where the wasteland has reduced radiation than normal?

I am only trying to help, and the more questions I ask the better I can judge and help. All I am willing to reccomend at this time is make a post in somewhere in the forums for troubleshooting. with an attitude like that though you will have issues finding someone willing to help. You will be bombarded with questions when it comes to troubleshootings.

 

Best of luck to you to you dude.

Forges modded out.. Wondering how it looks and what addon they provide

 

Advanced Bellows: Reduces smelting time 50%, anvil reduces crafting time 50%. Crucible unlocks steel production.

With the "No Child Zombies in A18", if you ever plan on doing child zeds later in game just remember, Australian law will give it a "Refused Classification" will ban the sale of the game here. Also they ban games that have "(1) illicit or proscribed drug use related to incentives or rewards."...

DayZ, Fallout 3, We Happy Few, etc had to change parts of the game because of the drug use.

 

No child zombies are coming. Something small perhaps.

3's a beautiful number. Comes up an awful lot in game design. At least for testing.

 

3 is almost always the magic number in game design.

Maybe spiders, mudcrabs or head crabs lol....original I know....

 

Roaches is another good candidate. Those have a knack to survive in the worse conditions.
