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

They have never said that it would stop doing that?

 

Until the game goes gold, be prepared to start a new world each alpha.

When the game goes gold and is released. You should always expect to have to start a new save in a new world for each new alpha. Sometimes you are required to do so multiple times during experimental release. If you aren't prepared to restart during experimental or when experimental goes stable, I'd highly recommend skipping experimental and waiting for stable.

There was something like that stated in posts about Alpha 18 before it released?

So, how about A 20 ? 

 

Just kidding guys, the game feels so good, the new graphics and textures look really great and on place. At night time with a torch in a building is a whole new experience, can't wait to go further.

Yea i always wait till stable. I just thought I read something about Alpha changing to a stable framework

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.

Bottled water is probably one I can easily name off of the top of my head.

 

I understand that in real life you couldn't easily stack more than 10 bottles of water in a single pile, but with so many uses it's common to have at least 100 bottles of water at any given time, and that's half of a container right there (100 bottles of water being 10 stacks of water)

 

Whatever the argument, I personally just see it as a HUGE quality of life change to change it to 50, or 100. Again, so that I don't get jumped on; I understand it isn't realistic but hey.

If murky water can stack to 100 odd, why can't bottled water stack the same. It doesn't make a lot of sense in that regard so you might as well just have an uber stack of murky water and a purifier mod and no need to waste time cooking.

Does murky water stack to 100?

If Item Stack Sizes were Container Specific then both could exist.

 

Stacks of 10 in Backpack and much larger stack sizes in chests.

That's be a very nice QoL change for bases/storage and would still allow 'balancing', or "tactical" considerations to be applied to player backpacks.

 

Edit: would also be nice for crafting. six output slots means can only boil 60 bottles of water at a time, etc.

I like this idea.

Now THAT is an amazing idea!

You watch the Cap00 or Reach Gaming Junk Sledge vids? In case you missed them:

I hadn't yet, thanks!!

 

That's exactly the kind of testing I was wanting someone to do on the streamer weekend!

 

Results were pretty bad, but at least we got some concrete numbers, and Cap00 actually looked at the Junk Turret skill and magazine line, which had yet to be looked at this whole freaking time. Not joking, I've yet to get a single person hover over each tier in that skill and see if ANY of it affects the Junk Sledge. It seems a couple of them actually do, or were changed to at some point since the devs originally said no

 

Definitely needs a lot of number tweaks imo, but I would be happy if it was at least viable to use as a handheld weapon if nothing else.

 

I think one of the biggest issues with it, is the near total lack of stagger / stun which could be related to the A19 change to stunning zombies. It has such short range that it doesn't get time to do anything because everything just zooms right past it before it gets to attack, and any attacks it gets in are just shrugged off while barely slowing the target.

 

Potential is definitely there, but I have to agree with Reach that it seems like a super early game weapon except it doesn't show up until mid game, so by the time it shows up it's under whelming.

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

rwg is broken, go about 2k out and youll hit all water, guess all that "testing" and live streaming and they skipped rwg day
