It can be with a potato cpu

maybe, but from my recollection of rwg gen times that'd have to be a >10~12 year old system, something that likely couldn't run the game...

(I'm running a 9 year pc w an i5-2500k that gen'd 8k a18 maps in ~12 minutes)

Lol...you would be surprised how many people are hoarders in game and irl....thus the poor inventory management skills and the desire for bigger backpacks...😂

He was mainly talking about starting out of your base without clearing out junk. I see streamers do this all time, and have to call them idiots all the time. The go thru one small POI and have to go back to their base.

 

 I keep everything, but always use drop chests.

Good on ya'll for fixing asphalt, adding guns, and making everything higher def and silky smooth!

 

2 bugs I've run across: only one type of locker allows consecutive placements.  All the others deny me the ability to have them line a wall.

 

Also, was rolling thru Navezgane and spotted some random rock voxels floating over the desert.  No idea what's up with these but they're also quite visible from the ground.  I've attached pics.

normal food...check

super food ... check

regular water...check

beer/coffee/mega crush .... check

medicine...check

2 melee weapons....check

3 ranged weapons (and their ammo) .... check

1 of each tool type .... check

lock picks ... check

candy ... check

bedroll ... check

wood ... check

stone ... check

AND MY MAP IS JUST A SMALL SQUARE! IN THE OCEAN! LMAFO

 

 

 

 

maybe thats why i only play Nav!

Ya I had a Grand Canyon with Waterfall walls that I couldn't get out of.


I regenerated another RanGen map with a different seed and thought I was in the same boat but after climbing nearly vertical walls, the world opened up and I nearly didn't get any sleep last night before work today.

The AI sometimes does not know how to path in it and does endless loops and so is no challange, but I suppose to each their own.

 

I prefer them breaking them against my defences.

Generally I don't want the AI doing loops that can't reach you. Temporary loops are fine as long as they degrade and are destroyed at some point, so they then get closer and eventually reach you if you did nothing.

i dont liek the bug so far where the junk turrets/sledge (from what ive seen) dont get mod perks when they are on the ground ONLY when you are holding them. Is taht intended? also WHY cant i put burning shaft on my stun baton. legit only thing that made is fun to use it IS a long shaft 

 

Whoa whoa whoa, the bug applies to Junk Turret too? That's super serious as literally nobody uses Junk Turret in handheld mode. I'd heard the Sledge wasn't making use of mods in placement mode, but if Junk Turret is affected too that would cripple it pretty hard. Junk Turret is already a T2 competing against every other class having T3's, mods are a huge part of it's damage.

 

Will need to do some testing on this later, hopefully it's fixed soon if true

Leveled books are coming so you guys won't be finding crucibles or tier 3 schematics on day 1, that should help a bit with the "game over" feeling when you totally luck out, and we can weed out the "1 pocket" stuff or diminish its chance a bit later game so you have a better chance of getting something good since there is a less chance of getting something crappy ish.

Nice!!! Good news. Every book store we were hitting up are just giving us everything lol, now I don't have to go through them and get detailed data since you said you had plans :)

If your shaft is burning you might want to have that looked at 😛

i dont know why they WOULDNT let the junk sledge have it. Why can i put a burning shaft mod on it if the placed down turret wont use it? yea ppl are reporting that it doesnt get the damage increase etc. Easy way you/i/anyone can test it spawn a turret in, DM yourself and watch it hit once with no mods and once with a mod that adds X damage. if no change, they dont do anyhting. Kind of sad... was honestly hoping for a rare mod/ammo for shock rounds or a flamthrow mod. if i had a flamethrower mod i wouldnt care if the t3 drone is ever released LOL

I just found a pair of night vision goggles. I can't remember the last time I found a pair. Whatever you guys have done I love them. They work so good at night now. No longer on the hunt for a light mod for my cowboy hat which has become the norm.

So, how much for the second one ? 

Dukes only.

Wait, does a pair count as two in your case, I found one in a chest that left unlooted in first horde night and it was broken by the zeds, eventually just left it and the loot from it. There must be a chance for them to spawn, which is awesome.

@madmole, check this out ! 

 

https://community.7daystodie.com/topic/19723-iron-gut-perk-typos-and-a-couple-of-books/

 

And this is a big one! probably @Gazz 's or @faatal department. 

 

https://community.7daystodie.com/topic/19727-bug-how-to-lose-a-full-stack-of-items/

 

 

While the misspellings are weak stuff, the second one is one big mother. I'm glad that the streamer weekend finally helped with the repro.

I will try it, just really want to avoid the super blurry textures. I used Pregen 3, didn't make my own. I should have enough vRAM, I have a friggin Titan card, albeit first gen, and 32 GB system RAM on top of that.

People with <4GB, possibly even <6GB should probably be using Half for Texture Quality.

 

How much RAM does your GPU have?

If reading duplicate schematics could increase the quality tier at which you could craft it that could help. If I find and read 3 schematics on crafting a pistol and can therefore craft yellow quality pistols even though I never perked into pistols that would open up crafting a bit. On MP servers people might start trading schematics more to get their levels up on crafting.

I see... so if I read two IKEA instructions for assembling a closet I'll have it switch from fir wood to oak wood? 😁

That's a net gain! Thanks for the tip! 🤑

Yeah I want to upgrade, that sounds nice, my Titan card is GTX, not RTX, and isn;t a whole new gen of cards about to drop soon? Been hearing about the 3080 and so on, are those the "new RTX" or do they have a new name for them, dunno yet, but that's probably what you're talkin about.

AMD and nVidia should have their next generation consumer GPUs out this fall. I hope to buy an RTX 3070 or AMD equivalent by the end of the year.

No. But you won't have a situation where you are short three #5 screws and have two extra #2 screws....

Yeah... despite being a Titan, it only has 6GB, which WAS a lot at the time, but now my sons 2 yr old mid-range GTX 1080 even has more with 8 GB.

I would rather run a lower settings than EVER see any texture as low as texture streaming takes them, it honestly feels like a LOD system that isn't working right. 

But yes good point, I will adjust accordingly... until I upgrade, may get a 2080 Ti, with 11 or 12 GB, to hold me over until I can afford a new Titan with 24 GB.
