Any chance of getting hunger\thirst\stamina drain tied to difficulty? So on higher difficulties they would drain faster. I think this would help actually bring more of a challenge to the higher difficulties for the more hardcore players.

Oh wait, my bad. I didn't realize I had to click "single content type" tab. I thought I was already on that.

 

Edit: And, meh. I still didn't find any useful information on it. haha, I also don't mind just waiting and seeing what pops up in game. Surprises are scarier anyway.

The chunk would have to be loaded for the sound to play I am guessing.

 

So someone far away shoots at you, but you can't hear it, because your potato pc didn't load the chunk :(

 

Perhaps gunshots sounds should be extended way farther then the loaded chunks. You know, for pvp reasons..

game killers in pvp

 

I still believe today one of the biggest mistakes pimps made was removing calipers from the game. Used to players had to travel and take a risk to get out and find what they needed to survive. In todays game everything is given in just about any poi a player can get all they need. Really no need to risk looking for something like it used to be. I sure hope in A18 TfP add something that brings back this type of element. It really is needed on pvp servers for players to travel to obtain such important things.

You nailed it. A17 was the first release that bored me to tears.

We're about 5 or 6 weeks out yet, sorry that was a neat idea but after a rough 17 launch we're wanting to take the time and make sure its as good as it can be. We will probably be streaming and doing videos so you guys should have a fair amount of media to tide you over until release.

 

See y'all in a couple months then.

I think you may have found a reference to my thread on Steam.

I think its if the chunk is loaded on the server but I could be wrong.

Joel, on your interview you guys said you'd like to have alpha 18 back before school starts.

 

For us in Australia... What does that mean as we are not used to your system. What 'rough' time frame are we looking at? 4 wksish? 12 weeksish?

Madmole,

 

Welcome back - a question if I may, have the Pimps considered large "fuel tanks" that can be attached to generators. It was a question posed in the Pimp Dreams forum, and I think a good one at that. In short, a way to just throw copious amounts of fuel at a generator to reduce the frequency by which it needs to be topped up. A good chance for another book to.

Joel, in Alpha 17 it feels base defence is too easy. I make a tower with a pit with blade traps in it. Zombies run out of the pit back up to try to get to me and because I put barbed wire everywhere they move so slow I'm really in no danger at all. At later levels (e.g. lol 100) it really feels rebalance is needed. I love the idea of the exploding zombies demo guy.

 

Do you think that rebalance for later in the game is there?

 

Gee I love this game...

Just want to butt in about the calisthenics,since health is important in any topic :')

It builds up the small muscle groups and tensile strength like nothing else, enabling you to lift more, and safer as well.

It even helps regenerating quicker if it's done as a warmup, done more in a mostly static, controlled yoga kind of way. What's the word, isotropic? Brings out your muscles for sure. Just never go for max imo. If you train so hard that you need a rest day, you are missing out on a training day :)

Look at ring atheletes if you are in doubt about static holds and muscle growth / control :)

In Dallas, Texas (where the Pimps' office is) school starts August 19. But you probably know not to use that as a firm deadline for a18. In the interview TFP said they have 5-6 weeks of work for sure, but that delays can also be expected.

Who the hell starts school in middle of holidays? :p

Yes probably most of the above. The thing we need is a way to display a cvar in any buff so players can see if they are getting better or worse. Then you can see how effective treatment is, as it won't be binary. Imagine a number increasing or decreasing next to the buff popout icon.

 

Cvar on hud = fantastic idea.

More sound options for the speakers. Buzzers, chimes, bells, etc. that can alert to different events when triggered. Maybe even synth voice messages like 'Intruder-North Side', 'Intruder-West Side', etc.

 

I like alarm sounds in games; I think they can really punctuate the sense of danger and catastrophe. What we have now sounds cool, but I like your idea. If the player could wire up some prerecorded voice lines like "Warning! Zone 2 breached!" to trigger when they want, that could sound epic.

Yes! The pimps should make a deal with Amazon to put Alexa in the game and she can control your security system.

 

“ Alexa! Where are the zombies now? “

“ I don’t know that. Please download the Alexa app for more features. “

 

Oh man... the immersion!

Ha! The real reason he wants you to use Alexa is that he invested in it and will make a lot of money off of the deal. ;)

 

Not going to work Roland. We are on to you. lol

 

 

 

 

I am joking ofc

Given that ~4 weeks ago it was in about 6-8 weeks, ~2 weeks ago it was in about 6 weeks and July was not off the table, and today it is ~5-6 weeks, I would say it's probably around November ;)
