Mine took 20 mins and few seconda, 8x8, will do few more. Wish we had Kin to give us glimpse at whats new, he did it good. 

Ah sorry for the confusion, I actually meant to say that generating a new world takes me much longer than before.. On the same rig.

I got you, it took me about 15 mins in A18 and similar in A17 with my same rig, too. Might be longer here, indeed.

So I have to select "latest experimental - unstable build" in order to start A19 download?

Yes? No?

 

Read something about a stable version here as well, when will this be available? Does that mean Steam only does an auto-update when the stable version is out and if I wanted to update now I had to select latest experimental?

RWG: not impressed. "Random Biomes!" - generated 10 maps so far (8k's - taking about 15-20mins - there's 4 of us generating) and there's not much randomness to it.. Forest in the middle and the other biomes around that. And still hilly as all get out.

 

after 1-2 generations (per person), the map starts generating everything but the buildings, so restart seems necessary after generation

When i start a game my console is automatically turned on and there is no way to turn it off. All i can do at this point is pressing alt+f4 to kill the process.

@madmole Some of the items stack sizes in the game are quite insufferable (atleast in my opinion) but that aside, are there any plans to revisit this or increase the stack sizes of some items? 

 

Realism aside and bringing quality of life up front in mind

Nope, I tuned these in Alpha 18 and haven't noticed any problems. What items suffer a small stack size? Don't say ammo because ammo is heavy and a tactical choice to take multiple stacks.

Holy Cow, I have been playing for about 10 minutes or so and it feels so alive and colourful, everything just feels good.

 

I cant go back to A18 this is really like everything is new again, the new lighting and PBR really make everything pop and jump out at you.

Well... @madmole , do you remember the data collection ?

As I said, backlash is always there to some degree. People won't understand even if you put neon signs in their faces stating that you are handsome. They will always comment about the baldness.

 

Changing topic, any chance we get an ingame reporting tool in which we take a screenshot and write the report just below?

 

 

Not sure why someone would care that we want to know what activities players do in the game. Its not like we look at who did what, we just want to know how what percentage uses shotguns vs rifles, how people die, etc. Balancing the game good is more important than a bad review. A poorly balanced game will get lots of bad reviews, a good one will get lots of good ones.

So dumb... Reminds me of people who think the Earth is flat... 
I mean, it's 2020, i bet google even knows how soft is his hair, and he's worrying about some game data TFP collects for balancing purposes.

Finished my first 120 min day and I'm very happy!  (Edit: Its still nighttime)

-My Strength/Club build is an impressive killer.

-The game looks better than the streamers and the zombies feel more real.

-Crafted my first blunderbuss with maybe enough ammo for two POI clears at my GS.

-Missions are all over 1km except for my first which was a clear (easy at low GS).

-60 minute days are probably better with food being so tight.

 

I expect once I find a lead mine, the zombies are doomed!  😁

The linear lighting looks really good.

Also the the zombie models in a dark POI.

 

Made me a 12k map, and going to explore.

When will the updates stop corrupting old save worlds? I thought Alpha 18 was going to be the end of that?
