Alpha 19 Dev Diary

Roland

When you download A19 you MUST start a new save. Maps generated in A18 will NOT work for A19 games. 

 

Head HERE to report bugs.

Staff, come in and have a look. It's a fatal mistake

 

 

 

Hello, I'm a Chinese player. In our servers in China, a very terrible thing happened, which led to a 50% reduction in the number of servers killed in seven days in China. This situation lasted for about a month. The reason is that someone used the vulnerability of seven days to attack the server, resulting in the server dropping off the line. This is the difference between the attack form and the traditional attack. Check the firewall No DDoS attacks were found. He did it for the seven day kill gameA way to attack! I hope you can pay attention to it and solve it

 

Output log: https://pastebin.com/2k8et0av

 

Your output log shows a DDoS attack with hundreds of parallel login attempts at nearly the same time.

 

TFP probably should limit simultaneous login attempts (a maximum of 8 seems sensible) to prevent this.

How about a translation to simple English?

Are we gonna see any new block upgrades that is stronger than steel? Like how it was with "stainless steel block" but stronger, maybe "diamond block?! We already have diamond s, why not use them like an "end game upgrade/thing"? And they are pretty hard to come by...

Would not be my Cup of Tea.

Im pretty satisfied with the current Balance, it forces you with higher Gamestages to make a more complex Base, use electricity. I currently play on 2. Highest Difficulty and have that sweet spot between comfort and challange.

 

Keep in Mind you can always change the Block HP Multiplier or reduce Zombie Damage to have a Game that fits your Playstyle more.

#StillWantThatMinigun

 

 

while i think it would be cool to have a Minigun in-game, but I can't believe im going to say this but.... it may be a bIt much... Yes coming from the Forum Rat that talked about a Flying Guardgole Zombie looking beast that would pick you up and Try to drop you!

 

 

But it also depends on they would they "put it in" say if it was a Mounted turret, truck mod or a auto Turret. but maybe a "Modified" Mini gun thats is lighter to hold. YES ik the people in 7DTD can hold a Truck in their pocket!

 

personally i think the M60 is fine. it light enough to Hold for combat, it has a High ammo capacity, you could Mount it on a Turret or a back of a truck...

 

but thats just my opinion, i don't want to ruin your fun of ideas, you go!

I've tried all kinds of methods, it's useless, so I come to you for help

I changed the connection mode of assembly-csharp.dll to allow only one IP connection in 5 seconds. When attacked, it can last for 10 minutes, but in fact, it is useless

Think of it as an Endgame Weapon.

 

Mr. Mole talked about how he wanted to make Wasteland special, threatening etc.

How about a big Military/Research Facility and after a lot of dungeon Crawling you would get the Minigun ( Maybe aftter a Boss battle?)

 

Could be balanced out with Ammo-Needs

I personally hope the dont turn 7D2D into a FPS game. I have Borderlands for the turret mounted vehicle and tons of different mods/attachments for weapons. Its a survival crafting game, please keep it that way.

yeah that could work. maybe the look could be differentl then a minigun say from a Chopper.

 

something like this

 

M197Gatling.jpgimagine it with the grip and a trigger. it could look like this due to needing to "cut down wight" so in order to make it Usable while on foot without support from another person or a Exo suit. (if they do decide to add that) and it could ether use 9mm to cut down on wight, or 7.62mm for more damage for the cost of wight...

 

but yeah your idea does make sense, as long as i can't find it in some house, thats fine with me :)

Nothing planned at the moment. Steel is really strong.

Ahoy @madmole

 

 

i don't know if me and other have asked but.

 

sense we have the deagle in the lovely 7DTD Armory.

 

were does the SMG-5 go?

 

Pistol? we got 3 tiers already! or is it just 4 tiers and its just only exclusive to the Pistol class pistol. (that being the 4 tier weapon instead of 3)

 

sorry again if i and many others added. just been curious

I'm curious if anything has been done when it comes to a feeling of the firefights itself. It's nice to see more weapons so there is some sort of variety to choose from and stretches the gameplay. Super excited to see new deagle-like a weapon, a brand new assault rifle, top tier sniper rifle and automatic shotgun. I hope the devs continuously work on the overall feeling of the guns. Grenade launchers or something attachable to assault rifles would be fun too. A little bit spammy but cool though.

 

Something came to my mind when it comes to perks. I think that stamina perk or something within could impact the length of the jump while sprinting. Lower damage from falling might be related to stunning effect as well idk if that makes sense.

 

Parachuting might be a little bit of the hustle to be implemented but could save the frustration after exiting gyrocopter in-mid air with almost certain death. I think that parachuting from the top of the hills might be better than the initial zip lines idea. I wish we could get someday motorbike and upgraded gyrocopter for at least two players so I could crash-fly a friend of mine 0_0

 

I watched Stargate Atlantis back in High School and some episodes included awesome looking fights with pole sticks. Fighting with a damn stick is the hardest martial art to master as far as I'm concerned. Is it a martial art idk now??? A friend of mine had been attending Aikido. How about fighting with a stick against zombies, do relatively low damage and be able to block the attack. I guess this could take some time as well. How about throwable knives that can be retrieved at the same time as arrows from the body, such ability could be worthy unlocking.

Any plans to revisit hitboxes in the future? They seem a little bit finicky nowadays, and people often cannot melee zombies if they (the zombies) are in the process of swinging. A18 is almost flawless in what it presents imo, but the hitboxes can be a bit irritating at times, and not in a "this adds further difficulty" sort of manner.

Only problem I have with hitboxes, is when they right up in your face i can miss, even if aiming for body.

It obviously is a bug. Intentions do not matter. Goal is for zombies to have a way to threaten the player. If they dont, its not working as intended. You decorate it and parfume it however you want, but turd will still stink.

 

Ideally with time zombies should always be able to reach the player. I've spent the last two days reworking AI swimming, so treading water is no longer safe. They will swim up/across to you now. I'm still tweaking the whole feel of it, but hopefully it will be solid for a19.

Nice, do you have any estimation on when water will get touched? Something like post gold or beforehand?

so no more zombies in the game. Going with human failed experiment monster type things lol. I would a much rathered sharks crocs and piranhas as the threat in the water.

 

Faatal doing great work just feel the zombies are becoming more non zombie..... please add water predators way better and can be used for fishing as well as another benefit. Just not olympic zombie swimmers

I asked a while ago. Maybe you could enlight us now. What do you think of the recent Nvidia DLSS 2.0 system, did you guys talk about it and the very possible case scenario that by gold a big percentage of PCs will have RTX cards and (-takes a breath-), if so, are you confident to implement the option in the future?

 

I wouldn't call it exactly "low hanging fruit", but it sounds like a big improvement, even for dynamic environments.

 

Generally features like that have to implemented by Unity first and then put in a stable version, so we can update to it as time permits. Not going to be in A19, since A19 is staying with Unity 2019.2. Hopefully A20 will be updated to whatever is the stable version of Unity at that time.
