Why not have it so, you can just pick whichever tier quest you are qualified for?

 

If you are only qualified for tier 1 quests? obv you can only get tier 1 quest to choose from.

 

If you are qualified for tier 2 quests?

You can get the tier 2 quest, plus able to choose any repeatable tier 1 quests.

 

You are qualified for tier 5 quests?

You can choose tier 1, tier 2, tier 3, tier 4, repeatable quest, along with the tier 5 quest.

 

Choose the quests you feel up to doing. Don't feel like doing the same set of tier 5 quests? choose a lower tier quest.

Because then the game wouldn't have a linear gameplay that it seems to focused on.  C'mon Tin, that's sandbox talk!  😃

I think that's what I said. It is what I meant to say. I agree with this.

The way I read your comment was to only allow 1 tier down.  like if you are at tier 5 to only allow access to tier 4 quests.

Probably read it wrong <shrug>.

So just was adding on to include all of them.

Starting a tier V should not trigger a horde when activated until 24 game hours after everyone can get out of the POI or fails the quest.

this. see so much frustration in videos and streams, in the past from people losing in progress quests due to having fight a horde and either leaving the area during the course of it, or sleeper spawns choking and failing because of said horde. nothing like being 3 storeys up and suddenly your building stops spawning because of a horde, but your little blinky sleeper lights are still on the compass.

So this is why console gets no updates, people on consoles probably can't be spied on that easily!

 

On a serious note though, I wonder how much impact will this telemetry have on game performance which as we all know has been giving more headaches to many players with each new Alpha version. If for nothing else, I think for this one reason people should be able to opt-out of it.

Console games (and mobile games) can and do make use of 3rd party analytics services. Tracking game settings, options and things you do during play like looted x, died from y, reached level 15 in z hours, tells me nothing about an individual. Basically all we are looking at is graphs and charts of counts, percentages and choices for a week or month of collection.

 

Collecting the data takes a small amount of CPU time and memory and only gets sent every x amount of minutes. Trivial compared to all the other things the game has to do.

Well, we don't play them because of the lenght. Starting a tier V should not trigger a horde when activated until 24 game hours after everyone can get out of the POI or fails the quest.

 

How bout ya plan ahead and start a T5 when you have a enough time?

Can it collect data on Zombie Reach on client PC's? :)

Zombie swim animations are in, synced up with the motion and some bugs fixed. Looking pretty good.7dtdZedSwim.thumb.jpg.d7553cbc2509f15b18a71e74b88247fd.jpg

The only data players are afraid of being stolen is about their reckless deaths in 7 days to die.

Might be a nice mix-up for high lvl quests to have like a 'swarm' thing happen.

Like if the Stadium, when reset for high lvl quest, had 20 zeds in a locker room.

Something were single players might well consider building a little bunker to survive the rush.

Would potentially be fairly fast to run, need'nt rely on super complicated POI builds.

 

... dang it... did i do it again @Roland ... ??

 

You're fine :)  The only problem with the last time was that it went off the rails into full blown discussion about Empyrion so I backtracked to the best starting place I could to move it all to pimp dreams. Not really your fault-- just the way it happened. Gazz didn't help... ;) 

 

               -- Roland

 

Edit: oops. hadn't read MMs reply yet.

I wouldn't mind seeing a quest like having to survive waves of zombies at ... location, could be the middle of nowhere, could be a poi, be like causing a mini horde day to happen at different areas, could be fun and totally bring tower defence to a whole new level

It is the same. Just a different way for zombies to move around.

Thx

Does water slow zombies so much as it slows players?

Hope there is something that will make them faster, like if we bleed or make a sharp sound or something. 

It must be a place to die fast with the worst chance to survive.

The Tier 5 stuff got me thinking about how dangerous citys used to be. Any chance of that coming back at some point?

Looking awesome, Just a small question @faatal are the icons going to get updated to reflect the new looking weapons and tools?

Most zombies move at similar speed in water as players. Ferals are faster than non ferals. The spider zombie is very fast in water.

Does that warrant a name change?  SpiderFish Zombie? lol

You may think about increasing the underwater fog density later. Currently its as clear as in the tropical sea, and too easy to see those zombies then.

The visibility should be as low as only around 10 meters / 30 feet.
