Alpha 19 Dev Diary

Recommended Posts

a ring ring bell for the bicycle, and an air horn for the 4x4....and put the glug glug sound back in for the chainsaw and auger refilling... its still there for filling vehicles but it broke in a16 I think and was never fixed.

 

If you want to scare the crap out of the next motorist to cut you up on a bicycle may I recommend installing an air horn on the handlebars? My friend did this and almost gave a bus driver a heart attack :-)

Could you use a different color for things you changed at last edit of the first message ?

It's easier to see things added to A19 :D

Thank you!

So... slightly off-topic but relevant.

 

I found this post about the use of metal armour and bicycles during the zombie apocalypse and suddenly realized that it perfectly encapsulates my latest in-game character. :-)

 

 

Awesome.

Chain mail seems like it would be great for bitey zombies, but for the punchy zombies of 7dtd, I'd rather have six inches of cloth padding.

Assuming the infection is passed by the transfer of bodily fluids such as blood and saliva then your cloth armour is going to act as a sponge.

 

Chainmail is only really effective against slashing wounds, it's pretty bad at stopping puncture wounds and does very little against bludgeoning attacks.

 

Full field plate, the type of armour used by knights of yore, would be my choice unless there were other uninfected to deal with. A good set of platemail will provide about the best protection from a zombie you can get while having the advantage of a wipe-clean surface. The helmet does limit visibility somewhat which is why mercenary knights often worked with one or two lightly armoured companions to alert them to attacks from the side or rear.

Blood and drool will go through a sheet of steel?

 

Butchers mail has a rubber lining which will swiftly make you overheat during combat. If you've ever worn an NBC suit for any length of time you'll know how well they trap heat.

 

The type of armour in the post is half, maybe three quarters, plate at best. I was referring to full field plate which consists of a layer of plate over a quilted cloth under-suit with chainmail at points of mobility such as the shoulder.

The limited mobility, stamina drain, and limited visibility would probably lead to death regardless (e.g. surrounded, stuck in mud, drown in river, fall down and dog piled, etc....) 😂😂😂

Still better than SnowDog passing his bodily fluids.

not through the steel, through the joints, and the cloth padding underneath will soak it just as the regular padded will.and yeah, nbc suits are hot as hell, walking sauna's in the arizona sun. mobility would be the issue here.

 

personally, would use butcher's mail over denim. very light weight for mobility, doesnt clank. I am a stealthy person by nature. butcher's mail is tight stainless steel weave. light weight. would prevent biting and scratching.

 

 

this over jeans and jacket or trench

At least I haven't insulted any forum members for weeks now.

Well I'm sure that whatever the Fun Pimps come up with will be great.

 

But I am not going to pass up an opportunity to tease them whenever I get! ;)

As of this time we don't even know what to call Alpha 19

 

Sounds like a perfect time to release version 1.0 and start releasing 1.0.x/1.x onwards.

Not necessarily 1.0, as that would mean the game is out of Early Access, but Beta 1 could work.

I believe that weapons cannot be created, they can be assembled, as in old alpha, only there will be more or less details depending on which weapon.To do this, you will need to find a book (diagram) of weapons.A level of quality will not be

Welcome to the Alpha 19 Dev Diary. As of this time we don't even know what to call Alpha 19. It might be small named updates like "The New Combat Book Update" which could start at "19.0", with the "Vehicle Update" landing on 19.2, etc. What we do know is we're working on some new books, a vehicle update, etc but how and when we roll out what is to be determined. Hopefully it can be several point release patches to get you guys more frequent updates over 6-12 months instead of one big drop in a year.

 

New Books

Tech Junkie Learn from MacDyver himself to build useful gadgets from common household junk!

Grease Monkey Learn to modify and craft vehicles of all currently existing shapes and sizes

Bar Brawling Learn from Irish legend "Lucky Bastard" himself and never get bested in a good ol' fashioned bar room brawl.

Spear Hunter Get connected with your inner caveman and master the forgotten art of spear hunting.

 

New super filling foods

Gumbo Stew

Shepard's Pie

Spaghetti

Tuna Fish Gravy on Toast

 

Vehicle Update

Vehicle Mods

Vehicle break down and collision system

 

Improved Player Animations

Player arms in third person will no longer be stiff when moving with one handed tools, fists or weapons, instead their arms will move more naturally when they walk and run.

 

 

New Art

 

Tools

Stone Axe

 

 

Did not find the relevant mailbox, I have simplified Chinese of a18.2B5 here, the most complete txt at present, I hope to adopt
