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.

Yes please, I second this for those who miss it for whatever reason. 

 

Hopefully they record and we can watch it a million times scrounging for every little detail about A19....🤣

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

Well most people use discord for the text chat feature, not the voice chat feature. The text chat feature allows for quicker clarification on questions and answers. It's a superior method.

 

Think of it like IRC, but for noobs.

On the Infection/Injury/Medical-Items bit. I'm wondering how many unique 'cures' there are now.

 

Current system is quite simple. General damage, curable via food/aloe cream/medicated bandages/pills/first aid kits, and Broken Leg, curable via a splint.

Plus Bleeding during a fight but medicated bandages & first-aid kits cure that, so no need to carry a unique cure.

 

Right now I doubt many folks always carry splints. Pretty easy to learn what'll cause a broken leg and simply avoid getting one right?

And even if you do break a leg, if you're sporting any vehicle the impact is fairly trivial usually.

 

While I tend to think TFPs are normally sensitive to not designing things to force players to always have to carry X, due to backpack limitations, I'm curious to see if there might not be a couple 'new' items most will decide they have to pack along in a19.

 

Considering how broad "Medical" is in Emyprion, taking 3-4+ slots(?), I hope we aren't going to see the same here. I mean unless TFPs add in hovercraft with massive storage to pack it all around. That'd be ok. :biggrin1: (jk'ing of course)

This is why a gun is a terrible idea in the zombie apocalypse.  A single gunshot would have every zombie in a half-mile radius walking in your general direction.

Only if you fire one shot and stand till for an hour.

I just wanted to let you guys know that the Streamer Weekend is tentatively scheduled to start June 26th. I just gave that date to the streamers and know that many will begin hyping it to their viewers and then it would get back to here and then you guys would be upset that you had to hear about it from outside sources. So I'm telling you now that Friday June 26th is our hopeful date but it isn't guaranteed. If TFP feels they must delay another week then they will.

 

But that means that Monday June 29th should be a VERY GOOD DAY. (knock on wood)

Isn't the Steam sale the 25th? So close to being out before the Steam sale, not far off the original target!

Either way it means they're getting almost ready for experimental.

That's nice and they actually did it in a reasonable amount of time, considering COVID-19 and the quarantine problems.

 

I mean, it's not like they need to travel much to make the game... but there have been a lot more RL problems messing up everyone's lives lately. 😷

Great news ! Roland, can you give us some broad figures about how the super early experimental went? Number of people who opted-in, number of new bugs that it helped fixing, stuff like that. I guess the stability of 19.0 should be way better than all previous x.0 versions, for a lot more people have already tested it.

Yeah, I scanned the names and hours played on the tester candidates...

I would say, we are in good hands with that group!

i love how they are updating the game only thing i wish they wouldnt reduce so much of the perks the amount of diffrent perks makes it funner when lvling and developing

your char i understand changing the perks up but reducing seems like it will make it less customizable for each persons char and making it more for the below average gamer

rather then the pones who like the game for its conent

They don't reduce the numbers of perks. Mostly, they rebalance a lot of them so that they only have 3 ranks instead of 5. If anything it means a lot more diversity because in A18 a lot of perks didn't seem like they were worth investing 5 points in, compared to combat related perks and "must haves".

What a horrible task it must be to dig through developers Github and write up release notes. Do you assign it to the new guy?

Wow, I honestly wasn't expecting A19 to be even close to ready for quite a while longer (saw on reddit the streamer weekend announcement so decided to come have a look).

 

Haven't been on the forums since A18 released and just looked at the coming changes on the first page and I have to say I am once again super hyped to do another playthrough of 7DTD lol.  Loving the new and improved looks of the zombies and tools and the new weapons and equipment look really interesting.

 

Its crazy thinking about how far this game has come from where it originally started.  It definitely remains one of my favorite games in my steam library!

 

Now I have to go ahead and get my Satisfactory itch out of the way so I can be ready to play 7dtd lol.

Yes, and it's worth mentioning many other indie games were delayed by covid while the devs kept pimpin...👍

It's probably a mishmash of change logs from every build....🤣

The sign up thread was so big I just sighed and gave up since I knew they had like 400 bajillion more people wanting to test than they wanted / were going to use
