Can we make sure the patch list is a long one... printed on wide paper... and doubled spaced... with a really large font?  Please?

i just find the rats that like to eat my corn and watermelons and i sacrifice them in a burning pit while chanting "releases the kraken" then i uses the blood of the rats to draw the TFP logo and do the same thing, then i will my own blood and draw the Pimp cane with the Logo and chant it AGAIN!

 

 

but hey! you do you!

I think the game is much scarier when you're in a building surrounded by zombies than when you're outside of a building and most of the zombies are hidden within. 

 

I don't mind the sleeper system, but I do wish it was not the predominant system.

 

At least make a system where if sleepers wake up, the biome spawns increase and zombies head your general direction.

That would put a great deal more pressure on you.

Your first sentence is so true. My best experience so far has been the Tier 5 Shotgun Messiah on Navezgane. I think the POI is a masterpiece in terms of design and feel, and we had several screamers during the expedition coming from the outside, along with their troops. Probably a mix of it being in the wasteland and us generating a lot of heat by using our weapons. You had that "banging on the wall" stress, followed by the even worse silence that lets you know they found a way in. Sometimes a single zombie would join us from behind, making no noise at all. Basically zombies ahead and zombies in the back. We didn't "cheese" it by blocking pathways with wood frames, and honestly it was an amazing time. 

 

The rewards not so much though, even with 2 choices out of 5 options. Regarding the rewards of Tier 5 quests that feel sometimes underwhelming for the time spent, I reckon a different currency could be introduced, some kind of token that you would collect only by doing quests. Maybe rework the secret stash, or add yet another "inventory", where the trader offers you additionnal good loot in exchange for several "quest tokens".

Also, the loot at the end of the Tier 5 POIs should be bigger. It's more or less the same "metal chest, 2-3 crates, ammo pile and weapon bag" (with an added hardened chest that is far from being OP) as most other POIs, and unless you are really lucky it often feels underwhelming for the time spent.

If only there was a way to ask the CEO of the company who is also a POI designer, questions regarding sleepers and outside zombies and have him talk about it live this Friday night.....

So... Roland. I'm a bit confused, and I think I am not the only one (should be part of a song's lyrics)

 

What does Developer Streamer weekend mean as per TFP twitter post?

 

A- An streaming session with only Devs and Prime, who is also a Streamer aside from being a dev. No youtubers or other content creators will be streaming 7dtd A19 until a proper Streamer weekend is announced.

 

B- An streaming session with only Devs and Prime, who is also a Streamer aside from being a dev. In addition, youtubers and other content creators will be streaming 7dtd A19 because the twitter post meant "Prerelease Streamer weekend" and not only "Dev Streamer Weekend".

 

C- An streaming session with only Devs and Prime, who is also a Streamer aside from being a dev. No youtubers or other content creators will be streaming 7dtd until a proper Streamer weekend is announced. More Developer streaming sessions of this type will be coming on the following weeks until said Streamer Weekend is announced.

 

Edit: Streamer sounds like fun, so much better than streaming lol.

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, Prime will host different members of the staff to talk about 7 Days to Die. Not much footage of A19 if any will be shown. It's just Q&A rap sessions. Monday will be artists talking about the HD zombies and I believe they may show some new concept art for the next round of updates to our undead friends. This series will continue until the Friday that starts off the Streamer Preview Weekend.

 

Joel has a night scheduled and he may show some game footage-- but I'm not sure yet. The itinerary is still being created. On Saturday I'll post up the thread for Monday's show so people can post questions and it will continue on. They definitely won't be doing this for a month or longer so you know we are close.

Will the q&a be strictly from the viewers or are you blocking time for a "forum only guys questions" section?

Will the A19 things shown off be shared in this thread for people who don't watch streams to see them? I would greatly appreciate it.

Can we ask vicious and unpleasant questions?

Its going to be pretty informal. So I imagine Rick and Lathan will talk and bring up things they see in the thread as well as take questions from anyone in the live audience. I don't think he will block specific time out for anything specific.

The stream will be recorded and posted to YouTube and I'll post the link to that here. Don't tell me you don't watch YouTube... ;)

Like a hazmat zombie would give you a 30% infection with one hit? We talked about this.

He's right though, infection isn't really an issue. You either die before you reach 100%, intentional or not,  or you use medicine from your stockpile of supplies. 

I had thought a bit about this, there a couple ways to handle this:

  1. make medicine harder to come by
  2. add some extra penalty for dying while infected beyond a certain limit
    1. increased xp penalty
    2. spawn infected, with rate reset
  3. have zombies hits have chance raise infection rate if already infected
  4. more reasons to use medicines
  5. more dangerous early infection

 

1 is about limiting the supply of medicine. It's a bit clumsy and is hard to balance properly and is still a non issue with crafting late game.

 

2 is more about preventing a player from ignoring the mechanic by getting themself killed before it's an issue. The problem with this is if you were to die by zombies there's a good chance you go infected along the way, so you'd have to limit the penalty to only players above a certain infection rate (25%, 50%?) so that is only affects those that ignored infection

 

3 is more about making infection rise quicker and forcing the user to consume more medicine. Best part about this one is that the mechanic for chance to infect is already there, just needs some modifying. You'd have to cap the effect so you don't die from successive hits even if you have the health. Could be 1% increase for each hit chance capping at maybe 30%

 

4 is about reducing supply. Example of this would be a food recipes for honey and requiring antibiotics to be used in first aid crafting(probably give first aid kits 10% infection rate reduction)

 

5 is about making infection always have a downside, stage 1 has no downsides currently. Introducing a debuff like 10% reduced stamina cap or 15% less effectiveness from food and drink would give reason to use medicine earlier without making it life threatening. The debuff would be included in other stages as well.

 

Anyways they are just some ideas on how to make infection and medicine more important gameplay mechanics

I feel so old now days. All these kids and their Youtubes, Discords, and Twitches for everything. Back in my day, we yelled at devs on ancient text forums the good old fashioned way. With angry ASCII images that broke 80% of the time because of the forum format spacing

 

I'm barely even joking, people and their discord links for everything. Why would I want to join a discord full of random people to see a build guide, just post what perks and gear you pick on a forum like a normal person. I don't want to speak with the other weirdos into the same things as me, I already have to deal with enough weirdos in my life by tolerating my own existence
