faatal, you mentioned that you might be adding an AF setting to the options menu this week. Cool, but is it going to be on/off, or have more options like off, 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x?

 

I ask because for me, with a 4GB 960 I have enough VRAM to run full textures with AF on but 2x or 4x AF still runs much faster and looks way better than AF off (tested through GPU control panel). I understand that the default "on" is 16x AF which seems high.

 

If it gets added, it will probably have a few settings. I've been busy with other bugs, so not done it yet.

Oh it's worth it. ;)

 

oh snap, I see that. I imagine I'll get there, once I am no longer into buying stuff, but I still got stuff to buy. But I am now looking forward to smeltin some dukes, eventually. I'm ok on brass for now.

 

Since you just restarted you could pop into my game real quick and say hello. Find/friend me on Steam, I'm RangerRedd in there. I have it open to public at any rate, game name is generic, A18-Nav1.

So far this really is the best release to date. @madmole

 

If yo have the server power and home computer specs to run the game well it creates a hugely intense player experience.

I am able to do server events now that look a lot like "They Are Billions" i call it they are hundreds lol.

yes i know we are still in experimental but it looks great plays well and is just better and more scary.

 

Great work TFP...

Sounds good. ^^ Just know this for later on: late-game to end-game, it's cheaper to smelt dukes than it is to buy bullets. :)

 

Certainly! Adding you right now. I just have to test the game, like I said, to see if that bug is still persisting.

I was trying to carry more than 1 Spear on my belt but only 1 Spear can stay on your belt after throwing. The other Spears go to the Backpack but why? I don't think this happens with other tools or weapons, I have to check but what is in a belt slot should return to that spot & not the Backpack.

We could put those up for sale for PC tomorrow if we wanted, along with all those other skin packs we did.

 

Do it. Dont care what I say about balance and game direction, this game is still my favorite and I would buy them the second they go on sale. All of them. For me and my wife. So two sales.

Oh you got that back too? Nice!

Still think you don't need it though. Probably more people playing this than watching TWD at the moment.

 

Maybe if there were more NPCs in the world in unique theme specific POIs then maybe it would make more sense. I know a guy on the forums was working on TWD prison prefab but is taking his sweet time upgrading it for A18. The nerve of that dude....😅

....I don't care which one of you does it, but one of you mechani-xxx's has to change your name. Or stop talking to one another.

 

Avatar or not it's still confusing.

Yeh that guy has a lot of prefabs to make, so cut him some slack.

 

...let's give him until Monday. :)

Mm mentioned it was a limitation of some sort. Something about the system could only remember up to 1 item spot.

As i was taught many alphas ago this is what the Guppicurian forum whore is.

I had a really long break from this game and It feels damn good to jump back in.

Food feels more balanced now like im on day 19 in my current game and I still need to keep on top of it here and there although I actually just put down a few of these "farm plots" which is completely new to me, I definitely like that the seed remains planted once I harvest the fully grown plant, it's a nice touch.

It is my first time using the recently added motorbike too, makes me feel like a badass mutha riding that beast around.

 

I'm hooked again.

 

P.s congrats on getting the rights back for console version, really good news firm handshakes all'round.

You get what you get. If its a bunch of browns scrap em and craft up a blue, problem solved. You guys wanted crafting to be relevant. I just posted a screen, I have a yellow M60 I could use to end game probably, its not like quality = win, its something but not everything. Perks and a good yellow smoke unperked fully modded purple IMO.

 

Sorry, was in a bit of a hurry when I posted that, and it wasn't clear at all what I was asking. Specifically, is the gamestage formula change just for loot, or is it for blood moons as well? There's definitely a difference in difficulty between, say, GS46 x 5 players and GS149, which was what we had that night. We were running Tier 3 weapons that night, and we still got rekt.

 

If we go into that same GS149 horde night and all we've got is tier 2s, we might as well split up the party and spread out to go solo. I get that there's efficiencies with a solid team communicating well and that means they're more effective than the same number of solo players, but not 300% more effective.

 

Also, didn't see that change in the "changed" or "fixed" list on the b155 announce post, so wanted to make sure it definitely made it.

faatal,

 

No rush, just curious, but if or when you have a spare minute could you give an update on how the "AMD 5k and 6k cards may have flashing triangles on the ground" thing is going?

lol, I hear ya.... you said that Q6 was legendary. You didn't say, originally, that the current Q6 items were going to change and have an added effect so I was disappointed. Now that you've made it clear, I'm on board with it. A18 is the most fun I've had with 7 days in a long time.

 

I did say it, but it was missed by a few lol.

MadMole (Roland): Thank you for the re-directs to the FAQ (Guide). I hadn't updated in a week as I didn't know it was going to get used. (And it does take some effort.)

 

I have now added Item Quality (and 'purples'), and a bunch of links:

Several of you on game content and direction

Archery and Feathers

Some things that may be coming (radiated wasteland, specialized traders, better roads)

A gamestage one from Faatal

 

Alpha 18 General FAQ / Guide

 

I have a hacker convention to go to for the next two days but I promise I will be playing and doing more updates this weekend. Cuz I have a new Gigabyte Aorus Extreme NVidia RTX 2080 TI coming on Friday. Had one come from Amazon (actually a sub-supplier) past Saturday, and the box (torn but factory sealed?) and papers were all for that card - but I got a USED 440 AMD Sapphire 290 instead. Seriously. ~$400 card instead of the $1300 card?

 

Nothing like more fps to enjoy the game.

Excellent! ;)

 

I hope you kept level 6 solar cells in, since I believe you said the trader will no longer sell level 6 items. ;)

 

Not sure gazz did it.

Nice. Fresh map. Fists. Increased punch speed baby.

 

Any chance of an uppercut added in there :D?

 

Random attack anims are underway.

One thing that I would love to see is more visibility for the Blunderbuss. I have never found one in game and I didn't even think of it till I happened to read about it on the forums.

It is the only firearm that you can make as soon as you get the pars. But a player may toss it once they get another firearm.

 

I think that it would be great if you could find it in a nearby stash like that old house the player always starts near at.

Or maybe as a reward to finishing the starter quest.

Maybe an optional quest to make one so players know that they have that option.

 

Its in that bucket called "Stuff to sort out".
