With the ongoing lockdowns, I've been itching to sink my teeth into this game again. Are there any time estimates for A19 alpha release?

 

Plenty of them, none of them very accurate and none of them any time soon. :-)

 

There'll be some teaser vids released beforehand and the forum will be going crazy with the hype train.

That sucks. At one point they said smaller and more frequent content patches might become a thing...

They can release it any time before August and it will still have been more frequent than the past three....

...

The game has been performing better the last few alphas not worse, so I really don't like these false statements blanketed in a question.

...

Yes. The performance improvement was very good. It was especially nice that it didn't affect the visible quality.

Yes, that's right :). But there is less and less time left for this to be true... :D

 

 

 

No ambition to partner with a publisher, nor really be AAA, but we would like to make great games that might look or feel AAA, but have the game play we like. I think lots of studios get stupid big and the burn rate is ridiculous. They throw away multiple half finished games because nobody has any passion, its whatever funding you can get for x y z. That is no way to build a studio or build a brand IMO.

That's right, Man. Don't get into that pile of droppings. All the same, you will not earn all the money - but you will remain yourself.

I love these new models because they are an old look with an improvement! They seem very cozy and comfortable as before :)wAAACH5BAEKAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAICRAEAOw==​.

 

 

 

 

 

Interesting that one of the couch sectionals has a shape selector icon. I wonder if they are trying to unify more blocks into that system. I like them personally so wouldn't mind it. One of my mods actually expands on the shape selector function for storage containers...:p

I agree there were performance issues with last two alphas. But.... they were mainly in experimental for me. I understood I opted in having these possible issues. I started after A15 stable. A16 I dont remember any performance issues. A17 I still had regular 24" widescreen monitor using 19x12, so going to 10x7 didn't seem that big. A18 I had 34" extra widescreen at 34x14, so having to switch to 10x7 to play at reasonable FPS seemed big. But I still didnt feel the need to rage post about.... EXPERIMENTAL

If I'm playing a solo game... I always "gift" myself a bicycle on third day... I don't need anything more... but I enjoy the variety vehicles when playing with a server with more peeps.

 

I like the fact that the modlets are working. I'm a boomer and being able to download interesting systems into the game keeps the game fresh for me.

My favorites :

-Jax Teller718's increase X5 wilderness zombie spawn

-KHLogSpikes

-Snufkin_CustomZombies

 

For Version 19 I hope the mod-modlet compatibility stays and I wish they'd bring back the 240 minute day option again. I saw no reason to change that.

 

As for Graphics.... absolutely beautiful.... sometimes I play just to enjoy the scenes, poi's and sunsets.... Magnificent work gentlemen ….. Spell bound for years now.

AAA = overambition leading to overreliance, imo.

Average, Anemic, Anti-consumer.

 

Of course there are exceptions but some just feel like highly polished cash-grabs.

Look youre technically right, but lets not forget that it was estimated to release A19 ( or back then Bookupdate) before Christmas 2019.

 

Yes, Update Cycle got a tad faster, but the idea of small and frequent content-updates got obviously scrapped right after Madmole explained his hope for it.

 

(im very carefully avoiding the word "promise" here^^)

Just whatever you do, dont Partner up with EA. Those guys kill Studios like i kill Amaretto Shots on a quiet Quarantine Afternoon^^

Hey @faatal and others did you notice this thread on Reddit?

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/7daystodie/..._to_die_unity/

 

Looks important, some users are getting a HUGE performance boost easily. Maybe these Unity options can be set as default for A19 if devs find are stable enough

 

had no major effect on my ryzen 2700x @4GHz, RTX 2080 TI, 64G Ram on M.2 NVMe (maybe works for older systems)

 

tested in a18.4b4 and a19

I did a quick test and this gave me about +15% better performance in a CPU-bound area (@Ryzen 5 3600 & RX580). This one to be exact. Similar result i've got from my testing by assigning the game only to the main threads of each CPU core, but this gfx-enable-gfx-jobs=1 tweak seem to be resulting in a few fps more (at least on my end) even after allowing the game to use all CPU threads back again. Apparently for some folks it negatively impacts performance when there's a lot of zeds around.

How's the terrain generation of the biomes looking in A19? Any major alterations between the current alpha and the next?

 

Also, I've noticed you've re-done the texture model for the LCB; it resembles the A16 version back when it was made of iron. Is the recipe still going to be 5 stones?

 

Everything you mention is identical afaik.

Been that way since A18. You craft a couch helper and it has all the pieces.

Hello Fun Pimps,

 

When you will release:

 

The sinked sub on game?

 

The diving suit? ( to explore beneath water and search sinked containers such as sinked boat or a pretrol boat)

 

The oxigen tanks for the diving suit, also the portable big light bigger than the lantern that it is above the table of some buildings ?

 

The 2 or 3 camouflages, one of them is leafs ( because zombies will get more smarter so it will need the camouflage system)?

The first camouflage can it be using, clay - (Mud) and grass ( leaves) and perhaps a little wood. Notice the zombies will be more smarter and if the see player they can run into, then it would be necessary the camouflage sistem to be more undetectable to zombies. The Second Camouflage will use leather, scrap metal, plastic, cloth and 2 or 3 special pieces. The third Camouflage will use more expensive things.

 

 

The motocross bike for 2 players ? (The red or orange motocross similar like the terminator 2 when the boy is escaping from T1000 wich is driving a truck) Position of the players, one drives and another on the back and the player can shoots his own weapon - Similar like the buggy but buggy has a minigun or heavy machine gun attached on the roof of the buggy)

 

The buggy for 2 players ? (One who drives and on the back of the player the second player can maneuver the minigun or machine gun wich is attached on the roof top of the buggy and can fire the machine gun)

The new armour for buggy? There is a buggy without armour and the person can choose to have upgradble armour - Normally it will be a skinny buggy ( similar to the rally cars inside with some bars to protect car to flip out)

 

The minigun? You can translate the language of an auger and adapt for the minigun, dont forget the battery to add ...

 

The minigun attached on the roof of the buggy?

 

The van like the A-Team for 4 players ? There is an old TV SERIE "Who's the Boss" with the actor Tony Danza - The Van can it be white and transport at maximum 4 players including the driver.

 

 

The water system piping to drain water from lakes to the base? Water pump dont forget to improve that.

 

Congratulations to Fun pimps to confirm the Drones, the finally Desert Eagle, finally ! :)

 

Could you please sirs give me an repply ? about it ?

 

Best Reggards and keep up the good work

 

Please repply and take a look all my messagens from the begining of last years and confirm 90^% all

 

Thank you very much

 

Greetings from Portugal
