Alpha 19 Dev Diary

Recommended Posts

 

There is easily room on the market for 100x the games. I cannot find a game I like other than one a year at best. 7 Days, Ark, Rust, Skyrim, Fallout 4, Subnautica are the only memorable titles in the last 10 years. I have time and money for more of those. I'm so bored right now I'm playing BFME2 and Plants vs Zombies. I'm simply unwilling to try new stuff because it always sucks and cannot hold my interest. So I replay old stuff until Starfield or ES6 drop. I'm ready to play 7 days, just waiting for a few more missing components and I'll start a new build.

 

BFME2 was the best. I wish the match service still worked for it.

Good to know I'm not the only one who is cut from that cloth. Currently I mostly play 7 Days to Die, although I occasionally go back to Terraria (especially recently with the final large update coming out in less than a month), Horizon Zero Dawn, Stranded Deep, The Forest, and Plants Vs Zombies, with a couple older RTS games in between when I get burned out of everything else; I've yet to give Ark a proper go. Most titles these days disappoint me; maybe my overall small quantity of Steam games is also due to the fact that I'm a minimalist and I have a tendency to hyperfocus.

TFPs: After much discussion we have decided to remove the cheerleader zombie as we felt she was a bit offensive.

MM for the animations coming to A19, did the pump shotgun get a scripted reload for the amount of shots you shoot (no more 2 shells and thats it) or is that a w.i.p

Really excited about the upcoming changes.

 

The Zombies looking at you with the new models is going to be super creepy.

 

@faatal will the roads be getting any painted lines on them in random gen?

 

No road art changes that I know of.

@faatal

A small question: will zombies in 7 Days To Die also react to the appearance of the character, as in this video?

Thanks.

Their head would turn as they turn toward you, but not exactly how that looks.

Tri's would be a good barometer. How much memory they use would be cool too. :)

 

The new Arlene model is 8845 verts, 15836 tris and about 31 MB of textures.

I might have a look, is it better than No Man's Sky?

 

you should look into Empyrion Galactic survial, its a good comparison to space engineers, and alot better than no man`s sky.

and it seams the developers are really passionate about their game.

Mr. Mole,

small QoL Request:

If you open the radial Menu on Vehicles, there is a Icon to Refuel.

 

Can you please add this to the Radial Menu of the Generator too?

Some time ago I read here that new player characters are not priority because game is in first person and you dont see them the most time. But when you play with someone you see them a lot and now even mannequins looks better than players characters. I hope they get some care too :)

Need to make room for bandits and special infected and I didn't say we won't add more zombies that make sense. You guys want more zombie variety, well it can't be a football player, but it could be something much more believable and that is called bang for your buck. I can guarantee you ever new player will never even see a football player, but everyone will see more gen pop zombies. So we're removing some snowflakes to make room for stuff that makes sense. The stripper will be a gal in a dress because its stupid to make a zombie only good in one POI in the game. Nurse will wear scrubs instead of a party nurse cosplay outfit. Won't feel out of place anywhere then IMO.

 

Sounds very sensible to want to have believable zombies that are more generic and usable in many different settings, though does this mean that this is the situation in A19, as in is it on the road map that they will all be replaced with new skins by the time A19 becomes stable (19.4) or will you just remove them for now and leave a gap while they could just stay around until the replacement is ready? I am just wondering why they should be cut out when no replacement is available yet, is it because of the Linear Lightspace changes or something else?

Ya the destruction phases are cool, just wish that you could shoot or melee through them holes.

 

So we can get some licks in before this happens.

huh.. some years back I was working in the ER of a Tiny Village, and the familiar of the Patient did exactly that to a real wooden door because he thought his mom was About to die (she wasn't and she didn't)… he was something like 2m tall and a few hundred kg of muscle so I just let him… after he finish with the door he just stormed out and I asked the nurse, should we call the Police or something? and she was like... nahh, he lives a few Streets from here, he's a Carpenter. we just got ourselves a new door. that one was was old anyway. XD

players look bad because they do not take the time to apply the correct makeup needed. :) besides... who wants to shoot good looking people, i mean everybody always shoots at me. :)

Actually there has been quite a bit of work to player animations. With that said, is 3rd person playing on the roadmap? I recall seeing a 3rd person video from Kinyajuu many moons ago.

I wonder if he subconsciously went for the weak spots in his destruction process....?
