Nice. I usually, not always, but usually click in just as much time as the forge/campfire/chem station says it needs for what it is doing, that way it shuts of when it is done, and is easier to tell when that happens from afar. Yeah it works well with reg wood in the campfire, but for big jobs, like cranking gunpowder or glue in chem station, or smelting tons of material in a forge, logs would be nice. Gonna give it a try.

 

Have a quick question, maybe I'm not the only one, but sometimes the proposed time vs actual time in the chem station seems off. Like, I'll load what it says it needs, then come back and it's out of fuel and still has work to do. Am I missing something or has anyone else experienced such fluctuations/miscalcs as well? Only really happens in the chem station iirc.

 

I keep them right in the forge in the output tray, I rarely need all 6 slots.

When that "extra" mod slot is still 1 less than we had in A17? Yes, it's underwhelming.

When the "higher" stats are only a possibility and not assured? Yes, it's underwhelming.

 

Newcomers will appreciate it then. Sorry we screwed up and spoiled you. Legendaries aren't about mod slots, its abut something something something... dark side.

If a demolished blows up in your crafting room you deserve to lose all your stuff lol

 

It did, and I did. It wasn't all of it, but two crates. That was before the damage buff after that first video.

It was adding everyone together and using team GS. Now (in the next patch) it will use the highest level players GS for loot, for the entire group.

 

You mean not only for quests, but as soon as you are grouped? Isn't that devaluing the Lucky Looter perk of the perception player?

MadMole,

 

If Jon Jones moves up to face The Predator, who would win?

 

Predator KO's him in the first round, like everyone. Jones has no power and is the smaller of the two by a large margin with only a 1" reach advantage. He's also not the beast he was when he was on roids, he's lost his nasty killer instinct when he'd destroy guys with knees and the most vicious elbows in the game. He barely beat some 185'rs that came up, something is off with him now. Maybe he just does enough to win, but he should have put those guys away not wasted 25 minutes on them.

 

Predator is unstoppable now that he is back with his original coaches. He decimated two former champions JDS and Cain. He's ready for Stipe now, but we'll have to sit through the trilogy with DC and Stipe first.

@MM

 

regarding the zombie rework, what are your thought on random tinted zombie clothes for non special zombies? IMO it would make the game feel a lot more populated. Or is that too much work? IIRC, last time this was mention, you guys said that you have to separate the clothes and the zombie models, is that what you guys are doing now with the new one?

I hope Jones finally stops talking about moving up and actually does it, been hearing it for the past 3 years.

 

Jones has smart defense. I think its possible he can outlast the initial onslaught and win.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess you did not do a clean install with the new updates, that or you do not wipe and start over with every update....?

 

I just carried over, updating the game itself, leaving the other worlds in. Looks like I'm going to have to dig down deep into the files and wipe everything for a clean install, since this bug has persisted over to A18.

Yeah that would be best. P.S. Love the new avatar, no more confusion!!! Awesome my dude. :)

I don't see any copyright or trademark violations with this idea. I bet 0 lawsuits too.

I assumed it was obvious that they would need to work with the makers of the walking dead. Common sense is not so common.

 

The console version worked with them and used the walking dead game skins in 7 days.

Well yea of course it was, but they had to pay the makers of the walking dead also. I think I remember Roland saying it was really expensive for them to do that.

 

I'm pretty sure Telltale already had the license to put the characters in games being that they had other things going. In the end, lawsuits.

I don't think TFP should involve any 3rd parties. They can make this is a franchise and stand on their own.

Picture this... Chris Hardwick on The Talking Dead announcing a special map for 7 Days To Die. That may bring so many new people and they would have to buy the game and the dlc.

 

Madmole probably thinks we are nuts debating this lol.

Would love to see additional ores added to the game, like Copper and Zinc when mixed into the forge with a crucible you could create bass ingots, or even scrap brass. But essentially adding additional ways to get brass. With the ore veins as they are now the only bottleneck on bullet production is time, and brass. Wrenching cars, sinks, etc. works and provides enough to do everything you need. But using natural resources to produce it would be a pretty nice feeling, allows for more role playing, and provides another use for the crucible other than steel.

 

Enjoying A18, again great job with this release. I have never been able to keep my group as engaged as they have been in any iteration of this game, even attracting new survivors... to die.

Another dead is dead episode on nightmare. #5

 

Long story short, if you are late for first horde night and you have no time to check if the POI you found, in the middle of the mountains have an outside stairway to the floor you are hiding on, you are screwed.

ROFL. Cool story bro.

 

I nearly always build my own base even for day 7.

MY day 14 horde was intense. Ferals and BM zombies nightmare, nomad difficulty, normies jog, 16 alive. They breached my fort and broke through my wood floor and made a ladder inside, so I was running circles around on the iron bars punching and healing. I survived though, the game feels perfect when you can barely overcome odds. I have no food, but bought enough for 7 steaks at the trader with my very limited money, and no ammo left, and I haven't located a coal mine yet so GP is still limted. I don't even have a forge yet, but I found a workbench at a trader.

 

This is the nightmare game I started on but I got wrecked 5 times the first 3 days so I lowered the day time guys to jog and haven't died since, but let me tell you, for whatever reason, it was a big setback I haven't recovered from. Feels awesome. This game started with the new gs loot we did, and I haven't had money to buy any good gear from the trader anyway, and now the good loot is gone anyway, so it will be interesting to see what the game drops. I have one lucky looter rank.
