Any news on server idle CPU changes?

 

TL;DR Servers are idling around 13-15% with zero players online.

i bought a Cement mixer just so i can make sandbags....................

 

 

i think i was worth it!

 

It would be cool if sand bags had a special use aside from decoration. I.e. resistance to projectile damage, etc.

Does headshot still have bonus damage? I didn't see points to increase headshot damage

 

The attribute itself gives the headshot bonus to it's specific weapons, Agility for bows, knives etc.

can the big storage box be somehow added into the search menu? I really thought it was removed from the game till I came on here and saw that it's part of some furniture block menu now.

 

on that note in a future update will items in the new building block menu appear in the search bar if we search for it by name?

So the update is unlikely to break compatibility? That's good to hear; you said earlier that a self-generated world is even less likely to have issues going forward than the pregens, right?

 

Yes. No matter what we say I'd try your game, if you run into problems then start over.

I honestly don't know if it was just added but i was clearing a poi of electronics and happened to hit some blocks that looked like sandbags and got cement from them, and was also getting cobblestone from hitting the blue blocks under them. Using a shovel and clearing out the POI I was able to get enough cobblestone and cement to upgrade the first 3 blocks high around my base and feel much safer now.

I just chainsawed a zombie to death and did not get any experience for it.

 

Sure you did, it was a fun experience :) We can look into that. Maybe he died of old age right before his last hit point was gone.

Sounds like you are playing A17. Here is the farming tool tip: Use your fists or any tool to harvest crops. After you have bought the required level in the 'Living Off The Land' perk or found a schematic you can craft seeds from harvested crops. Craft Farm Plots and plant seeds on Farm Plots using the secondary action and increase your harvesting yield through buying more levels of the perk.

 

Ahh gotcha thanks! I'm sure IWould have found the perks tonight when I play, but didn't know there were schematics too. Ahh, so I assume you can 'harvest' Farm Plots as well? I saw a mushroom farm in the basement of a house I'm in with them planted in what I assume are Plots. Interesting change. I like it, using the hoe was a pain in the ass lol. Absolutely loving it.

Probably not, people just need to learn the new system. Maybe we need a storage helper instead that has all the cupboards and crates in it.

yeah I had no idea level designers were using my new farm box, so you can harvest them if you find them. I reduced the sell price though, not sure if you guys have that change yet.

This food poisoning thing makes no sense to me and seems very backwards. As far as I know old cans of food would have a much higher chance of making you sick then something you hunted and cooked. I personally throw away old cans of food for that reason but am very happy to eat something I've killed and have never got sick from it. I mean really would you get sick that often when eating bacon and eggs I sure don't.

Damn, thought I found a way around the lack of OR gate in the electrical systems. Having to build two doors to trigger from inside and outside is a pain. Was hoping motion sensor could "see" through glass. No love.

 

Electrical really needs a full set of logic gates. ... Minecraft... just sayin.

yeah something would help especially for new players. mainly cause I've seen this question about where to storage box is and how folks couldn't find it come up a few times. heck even I didnt know where the hell it was after it didn't come up in the search bar and I just went oh well and gave up and stuck with the basic chest.

Might be one of those "better gameplay than sense" decisions... Canned goods are finite, whereas cooked food is not, so perk yourself for end game when you run out of canned goods.

They explained that you live in a infected world, canned goods were shielded from the infection.

Yeah I was watching a couple streams and everyone was saying that TFP removed the storage boxes. Maybe moving the furniture helper to the basic first list of primitive items would help? Get people curious about it?
