If you get the giant vulture that grap people  and drop them, teach it to ripp of whole parts of the roof

Also do we get anti Air gun turrets? Naaa not for the Vultures but i want to take down that dam supply plane🤪

i think it would be cool if they mad the giant vulture into a radioactive one. AKA it has glowing parts or maybe a fat gut or gizzard where it holds its acid!

Just to pull this discussion back on topic... I was thinking that one of the most coveted features of A19 is the Junk Drone.

But to my understanding the drone will only actually be used by a very small audience since you can only craft it when you spec hard into INT, right?

 

Does the JD (Junk Drone) also appear in loot sometimes like the JT does? 🤨

You already have AA turrets: the JTs are good AA! 😉

 

The junk drone will probably be like any other tier 3 gun:

1) Find gun in loot

2) Get gun from trader

3) Find schematic and a few parts and build (possibly low quality) gun

Snip for space

That stuff is better suited in the Pimp Dreams thread. But i guess this is almost all stuff that wont happen.

I fought myself for the Minigun and Madmole made very clear that they are pretty much done with weapons.

Other than the poor, "spare a dollar for a shrink?" full ocd min-maxers, which remember we said we weren't going to design to or for, who would be harmed by these being added?

 

I'm sure everyone else would be harmed.  Overpowered wet-dream guns do not fit the envisioned end-game where you have to engage the Duke and his bandit camp as an end-game goal. Normally this would be a challenge since bandits will be one of the toughest enemies in the game. With overpowered guns that wouldn't be a challenge anymore. Unless you also make the bandits able to even withstand a minigun. Now everyone needs a minigun to reach the end-game goal, not only minmaxers.

You're right of course @Guppys Fur. And even if I'd prefaced it with the general thought of, "End Game Content ? " it's still not really suited to this thread...

 

And I hadn't considered the upcoming Bandits @meganoth ... if the .50 & minigun could only work from gun mounts, and placing those mounts + mounting the weapon took some significant time, maybe that would either prevent their use against bandits, no-build zones?, or open up bandit counters? Bandit rocket launcher guy to take out the guns? That'd add some real question to attempting to deploy one, if you stood a decent chance of it getting blown up :)

 

Which would expand the scope, so a no-no for 7dtd-1. Damn.

 

Initial thought was simply to add something new, and pretty 'cheap' (model/code/time wise), for occasional late game horde choas. Where -we'd- get to be the Demolishers for a change. and it would provide a significant materials/ammo sink &/or goal.

 

Oh well.. (ya gotta admit that it'd make for some awesome vids though :) )

There is no "sledge turret"; it's a junk turret, first in the "junk" line. The others are the junk turret and the junk drone. Not to be confused with the gun turrets, which needs electricity to work.

Potato potato.

My point is they should add that as a normal turret which needs electricity.

I'm going to break the second rule of the Dev Diary by mentioning such a gun is the ideal target of mods. Who cares if a mod is well balanced if it provides some fun & possibly awesome vids 😉

Iirc the schematic for it is supposed to be in the loot tables as well. Just going to only be available at higher game stages.

I just got though most of the stream 4.  It would be really great if you all would find another place to stream the updates. Something that doesn't have adds popping up.

 

One moment your really into watching the vid, suddenly your looking at some dork shaving. It's like somebody just knocked you upside your head.  Then when you think it's done, they show another add and your sitting there wondering when is this crap going to end? 

 

Love your streams guys but the adds have got to go.

I asked a bunch of questions during Madmoles stream that didn't get answered and came up with a few new ones I'm hoping can be answered here.  Some are directed to the talks of the end of the project.

1. Are you guys leaving nerd pole-ing in the game? The way the game is played will be drastically changed taking this out from building to looting buildings. As it stands a player can get to where the best loot in the game is with two frames. Who needs a helicopter?! That's a problem right?

2. Currently you can pick up your vehicles and put them in your pocket or store them anywhere, is that always going to be a thing? If you look at playing 7DTD from a fixing problems point of view like I do your making it too easy. Your fixing a problem the players should have to figure out themselves by building a ramp for there base or underground garage.

3. Are you abandoning the radiation zone? Seems to me there were plans to have a zone in the map that you needed a radiation suit to be able to enter kind of like rust.

 

4. Wasn't there also something about food spoiling and needing a fridge powered by electricity? Cooler would have been an earlier version. I've paid attention to the project on and off over the years and I thought this was supposed to be in the cards. I also play a lot of survival games and everything is in alpha so this may have been confused.

5. Base building feels like its missing an end game weapon doesn't it? Something to spend that surplus brass on. I suggested a 50 cal on a bipod. Something you can go beachhead with at the beginning of horde night thats extremely satisfying. Then go to using small arms when the zombies form up on the walls. Make it so you can only build one.
On the turret note the 4x4 could also use one. It would be a great upgrade. Make it only loot-able in military installations.

6. Will you be making another pass on the tower dungeons? They have been around so long if your not new you have them memorized.

7. Since you guys have more people now, another project on the go, and things are wrapping up with 7DTD can we get set release dates for patches? Alpha 20 by Christmas, alpha 21 by next june/july ect. Seems like a suitable time to ask since you guys are confident enough to start another project.

What kinda annoys me is, that not everyone is a twitch user or will become a twitch user bc 7 Days to Die.

And it would have been really nice if the streams contents would have been posted on the forum as some kind of Highlight List.

 

Instead Adam the Waster, a Community Member did the Job ( extremly well) and posts lot of material in another thread.

 

I did posted a few days ago but maybe some hasnt seen any of the new awesome stuff that is comming :)

Twitch only requires registration for posting but I know what you mean.  Also, the videos are uploaded to youtube as well if you don't care for twitch but you would have to wait at least the next day for it.  Yes, its great that some forum members have taken the time to summarize all the cool highlights. 😎

Wow, this looks great. Thanks for sharing. 

However what I was looking for was to watch streams without the adds.

Don't have answers for most of those but I will at least post my suggestion for getting around this.

The dungeon POIs need to be setup more like the 'clear zombie' quests so that you have to kill all the zombies in order for the main loot room to spawn the treasure. That way it does not matter if you can backdoor to the right place, you won't get the reward without taking the effort to clear the place.

Those two I have to add my two cents to it:

 

6. They have a better plan: They want to make a pass on your memory. Wait for a letter with the instructions, it will tell you the hospital to go to and the rather invasive procedure. 😀 Seriously, this isn't a games-as-a-service type game (yet),  entertaining changes each alpha are only coincidentally amusing us alpha players by their novelty. They surely want to add to the game as much as possible, not replace stuff just to surprise us.

 

7. Whatever game they have in the pipeline must be in the concept/planing phase, for programmers and designers it is still bussiness as usual. Dates prefixed by "hopefully by..." are always available but as reliable as the current weather forcast for 2030. Specific and dependable dates? Forget it. It's done when its done

1) In the last dev stream (#4) Madmole mentioned they were "talking" about the idea of remove the "Press E to Pickup" function on all blocks.  Nothing concrete yet on this idea but if they do remove it, it can potentially prevent nerd poling since you won't be able to pick up frames anymore.

 

6) In one of the dev streams it was mentioned they wanted to focus more on creating more T4 POIs since they get more "bang for their buck" on those player usage wise. 

 

7) In one of the dev streams, they mentioned they would like to have the game gold or close to it by the end of next year and hopefully some DLC afterwards.

Nice!

When you are in single player, the T5 POIs take too long to clear and loot. The T4s are usually something you can do in a day which makes them very nice to do.

The term your looking for is "National Anthem".

 

I've got to admit though, I'm going to start referring to the "Star Spangled Banner" as America's theme tune from now on  :-)

1) it would have to go a step further, tips after so many blocks. Cause that's just making us trade wood for loot and once you can make gas and have a chainsaw wood is easy. Its a step in the right direction though.

6) ok, anything that takes you two days on two hour days to do (first time at least) is awesome! That forcing you to stay the night or bail in those towers are of the best parts of my playthoughs. It would be nice to see them changed up and more added.

 

7) I just want to see them get away from its 'finished when its finished.'

 

Thanks for the replys Laz
