You mean this: When you download A19 you MUST start a new save. Maps generated in A18 will NOT work for A19 games. ?

 

If that's what you are saying, it is not my question.

Thanks :)

Don't know if your question was answered, but if they just push the build to stable with no changes, sure.

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.

iirc Cap00 said that the Junk Sledge just requires Int 3 to be able to unlock it. If that's accurate and not a word garble or misread (like we all do from time to time) it means you can have the ability to craft them, if you can find a working workbench, and have an extra point for something else, IE the perk that lets you craft forges, when you finish the tutorial quests.

Question (Alpha 19):

 

Did the plus 50 above maximum food and drink disappear, or does the game still counts food and drink above maximum, but doesn't show it on the values?

 

If i drink a +20 drink and have my thirst on 85/100, does it waste the 5 surplus, or does it go to 105 and decreases as normal?

 

edit: Alpha 19

 

Thanks in advance

I'm guessing some people are having a HARD time With .. When you update your Game to A-19 new version ... YOU MUST START A New Game.

Simple .. New Game Time Everyone, if you going to Play A-19.

This game is so good, lush and gorgeous to look at.

 

REALLY Small niggles I know but it all counts to the feel of the game and the professional slick look its going for.

 

Tree's still not a complete model when cut (hollow inside).

I talked about this one way back and I am sure Fataal said they remodelled them for A19. Its a small thing I know but looks so 90's and they are in your face A LOT.

 

Sounds, we need much more as they are repeated inappropriately like the destruction of nests for instance, they sound like some large wooden chair breaking up. Again little things that just add to the polish of the overall game. Yes we still in Alpha but this is simple stuff that should have been done and sorted builds ago.

 

I see now playing on higher levels we do not get any startup tutorial perks, I not noticed this before so maybe that is a new thing to make things harder.

 

We get hungry WAY TO MUCH to soon. Just seems like I am constantly eating out of tins and meat every time I move or do something I have to eat again its pretty insane. This meant to be so we have to get perks to counter this ?

 

But so glad A19 has come, please do not make it another year (near enough) before we commence with further good stuff down the road....

Man does A19 look and run wayyyyy better vs A18.

 

Even at the same frame rate, it just 'feels' smoother, but I'm not sure why.

 

One request tho... please for the love of god, please allow us to turn off Auto Exposure/Eye Adaption. I always turn this off in any game, because it never seems to work right and gives me a headache.

 

Looked in the registry but couldn't find any option for it.

That's all well and good, but I've been told its whats on the Inside that counts.  I knew that was false - I guess I have to go back to looking at bottoms.

There's more, did you also delete the data outside the games directory? You can do that with the game launcher and klicking on the tools tab

Just checked and it was lowered to 3, solid change! Can't craft it though because it's hella expensive and requires 4 Junk parts, 40 Forged Iron, 10 springs, and 10 duct tape

 

 

It's nifty to see the changes they have made in just the last few days, the cost is already a bit cheaper than it was when Cuda crafted it on Stream since his cost 6 Junk parts (and he had to spend 10 minutes finding the last part he needed which is why I remember it being 6 specifically) but the cost is still solidly mid game.

 

It being gated behind junk parts basically guarantees that because unless it's been changed, the Junk Sledge and parts don't even spawn until after the primitive age is over so you'd be hard pressed to get a working Junk Sledge before an Iron Sledge even with crafting.

 

Still, progress!

I went in through the program files, steam, steamapps, common 7D2D and deleted everything that was left after the uninstall, is that what you mean?

No. If you start the game in steam it will give you the options: "Play 7 Days to die" and "Show game launcher". Select the game launcher option.

In the game launcher select the tab "Tools", and there the last option (probably something like "Clean game settings").

 

Delete everything. If you are successfull you will notice later that you have to select or create a new avatar when you want to create a new game

Since it crashed while loading profiles, that sound very reasonable, as soon as the game is done re-validating I'll do that. 

 

Thanks in advance!

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

When we go gold. Major updates require a new game, smaller patches probably not.  At least the small patches haven't required restarts like before.

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.

Water is a prep/survival item it cannot stack. You need to properly prepare for x days adventuring and take appropriate amount of slots up in your inventory to "manage" your trip. We can't just let you take a stack of 100 water and forget about hydration for 2 game years. Its a choice of do I bring lots of food and water and carry less, or guess the minimum I need and if I'm back on time I'll be fine, but if I screw up, I will suffer and need to find supplies or risk dehydration/starving.

If you really want to worry about water space, you can drink murky water which stacks a lot because its considered a resource and not a food item. Get the water purifier in your helmet and you can drink that crap with no risk.

Delete your profiles too then.

Yup, Meganoth told me how to do that, now the game is crashing at block textures.

Right click on the game.

Choose select properties.

Click the Local Files Tab.

Choose "Browse local files"

find then dbl click on the 7dLauncher.exe

Then click the [Tools] tab.

Then click on the [clean data tab]

click all boxes (also click on the ALL maps button).

Then click on the Clean button.

 

*Also* "If" you have a "mods folder" remove it.*

 

Edit: It might also be a good idea to go ahead and clean up any past save's (make a back up copy of them jic you need to revert back to the a18 build).

If that still doesn't work? reboot your computer and do it all over.

If it still doesn't work? then fill out a bug report.

Mods folder is gone has been before I reported here.

 

I actually used the 7d launcher from steam and cleaned all data.

 

Going to try to re-install on a different drive.

 

Don't know if this will help, but.

Not a support guru. Only thing I see is that it can't find your config file.

I know sometimes in the past when the game crashed on me, I needed to reboot my computer. Might be worth a shot for a last ditch effort.

Other than that.. write up a bug report, and see if the real wizards can figure it out.

Edit: Just going on past experiences, that worked for me when a similar crash happened in the past.
