Is it normal for the game to use all 8GB of VRAM at ultra? Also the game crashed my PC earlier (most unity games do after some time) and none of my progress was saved at all. Just curious if anyone else has seen this issue.

I'm surprised you guys are getting better performance, I am getting pretty low performance for some reason. With a Ryzen 2700x, 1080 TI, 32GB DDR4 3200MHZ  RAM, and the game on an SSD I'm getting 35-50-ish FPS just sitting in a small building next to the trader on the outskirts of a tiny town. Computer of that level should definitely be running a bit smoother, I even turned shadows and water down a bit  and eeked out a few more frames but not a whole lot

 

 

Also I got screwed by my random gen, I was over 2KM from my trader for the quest and he's in like a 4 building town with no other towns near it and I didn't even get a dig quest lol

 

Did you guys roll random? If so, how was your luck

My luck was good. Only 300m from my trader. Although my PC crashed (unity issues sadly with my rig) and had to restart completely even though my save was there.

I can't believe I didn't snap a pic, but I was so exhausted that I just wanted to go to bed, so I just played for a few minutes and then logged off. But anyhoo, I spawned looking at my trader; he was literally across the road from me. 🤣

So i am coming back to the game after a year.  I deleted all the stuffs in the launcher as someone mentioned.  I just wanted to see a few Seeds first while the kiddos were up... I loaded 3 seeds in the in game generator to see what they looked like.  BelleS1119, BelleS1113 and XN1952.

BelleS1119 had green forest all in the center and all 4 sides of the map a different biom (similar to the picture below)
BelleS1113 ran this one just to see if it was a fluke, very similar but the side bioms were broken up a bit
XN1952 ran this just to be much different and it was nearly the same as the first. image below.

Am I doing something wrong.. or is this a experimental thing... Just curious

I'm pretty sure this is the new "random" world gen they were talking about. 😛 (I'm personally okay with it, but it does look unnatural.)

Are there any "gotchas" to running the Dedi server in A19?  Mine doesn't seem to pop up even the console like it used to, and as far as I can tell isn't running.   It does the initial command box, then once you hit space and it closes... nothing.

Oh no... Well, yeah, i guess i am okay with it as it is simple to know the map (even if you dont peak at the in-game generator). But very unnatural!

Last I saw the new random biomes that were generated, it was much more jagged and random, so maybe it changed for the worse.

I spawned in facing a jagged cliff that was like 30 blocks high and one block thick, so can confirm it still does some silly things. Thus far I've traveled over 2KM just to get to my trader and yet to see any other biome than forest,  did you guys make the forest biome bigger for the Noob Spawn Safety System™? I normally build in snow biome when I can, but may have just gotten unlucky with rng

I was also flying over a world (forgot the seed) and there was an elevated chunk with a kind of radio tower POI on top; the chunk reached over 40 blocks into the sky. So yeah, it still has its kinks.

 

Look at the image above to answer your final question. 😛

See my post above. but i ran 3 separate seeds in the RWG in game viewer and got this practically every time.  So yes, large forest:

The forest biome is supposed to be in the center and you spawn in it and trader(s) somewhere in each biome.

Unless of course there's only one or two small towns in the other biomes that don't have a trader. 😛 But hey, RNG, amiright?

Ahhh i see.  well that is cool then, we got our different biom traders. I can respect that.  But this is exp, so hopefully in the future the bioms are broken up a tiny bit more.... .... :) Kiddos are asleep and now i can finally play.  Thank you for your time. Happy gaming all!

Loving everything about a19 so far. It is vibrant and beautiful and runs smooth as butter.

 

The only issue I have come across ( which I was fine with but seems to be contrary to the progression philosophy) is treasure maps.

 

I found one on day one and between the dukes in the chest and the diamonds, gold and silver to sell, I got over 20k dukes. Since the trader inventory also hasn't been adjusted, I have a blue quality pistol, and a yellow double barrel shotgun and baseball bat.

 

If I was bothered by that, I just wouldn't have bought them... but I wanted them so i did lol.

 

But to keep stone age valid, the treasure map loot may need a look.

 

Fabulous job all around though. You guys do great work.

Maybe lower dukes and add in books? books are always sort after but often arent usable till later in the game where you can actually obtain what you need for them.

Idk, that rwg screenshot certainly looks weird, maybe the biome thingy is not working properly yet .

I would honestly have been happier if the forest biome was always in the shape of my face, rather than the unnatural square. 😛 A shame.

Yes, as mentioned i did 3 separate seeds (BelleS1119, BelleS1113, XN1952) and all very similar. Green square in the middle.  I did a fourth with just random numbers, thinking maybe it is because i was using letters and numbers and it looked very similar to the image i shared.  I apologize for not sniping each image.  But I promise, on my rig these are the results.  Just seeing if anyone else has experienced this.

I did this seed which I like.  All outside biomes have at least one city in it.

World Name: Hezudi Mountains
Original Seed: BeeryAilurophobes
Biome Weight (Snow): 1
Biome Weight (Pine): 2
Biome Weight (Burnt): 1
Biome Weight (Desert): 1
Biome Weight (Wasteland): 1
Data Export Time: 3 minutes 13 seconds
Total Generation Time: 17 minutes 26 seconds

anyone having trouble with quest to find trader? two out of two times both on pregen maps i follow the sprite and no trader...

trying my own random gen now

The trader prefab names changed. Its very likely you are trying an older A18 map here. Most of the map will work, but will miss the new POIs.
