Could implement a loot quality game setting. So setting loot quality to 50% would halve your GS when determining loot.

Crap, I have a bet for 50k.. 

 

*thinking emigration*

 

This number is gonna grow so much more I can`t wait to see it. 

If my memory serves correctly, when stable is released is when the biggest increase happens.  *knock on wood*

I very much like the new night time lighting 

I don't live anywhere near a big city, in fact I am over 1000km away from traffic lights!

So when the sun goes down we get either stars or the moon and I have to tell you that you CAN see at night, not very well but it's not ink black.

We get a fairly long twilight and a long sunrise so again it is light before the sun rises and for a time after it sets.

 

 

I concur.  I have a house in the country, even on a new moon you can see at night; your eyes adjust.  Additionally TFP have given you control to meet your preferences.  Not sure much more needs to be done as long as you can adjust anywhere from pitch black to almost daylight.

That's flabbergasting!

It's 37K during Steam summer sale: this means that 37K people are playing 7DTD while many other great (AAA) games are on sale right now! 🤯

ikr, it gets better.

GS no longer increases based on difficulty.

Good to know, I've been loathe to turn difficulty up since I don't enjoy every poi being full of radiated ferals until I have the gear to deal with them.

i would like Random gen but it takes me 90 mins to load a map!

I run the previewer, then minimize the game and do something else for an hour.  Once the map is generated it will load as fast as navesgane.

No doubt, it is another record to be done ;)

Have you done MP A19 Horde Night yet? We haven't. We've had Feral Wights and Cops on Day 7, Radiateds on Day 14, and Demolishers in quantity on Day 21 in A18. Sure they've nerfed the MP horde nights. I don't buy it until we've experienced it, repeatedly.

MP Horde nights in 18.4 were broken.......

No it doesn't fit the theme of the game at all.

Nothing but dirt and sawdust from construction... but no nothing to see yet, I don't even have back walls yet in some sections. Eric pointed me in the right direction of some trim and roof pieces that made it look so much better. It took some playing with things but I managed to find the right woods to go together because some woods run sideways and some run up and down and we don't have any uv tools yet so getting it to look right has been challenging. I'm taking mental notes for some improvements we can do to the tools and player building work flow though.

Can we avoid broad stroke false statements? Please clarify.

it could be a Face mask! like the nurses lol

Somehow that slipped under the radar...

Actually, the face mask would make sense for the character that goes face to face with zombies.

 

The brawler perk has this thing that prevents infection if you "knock their teeth out", but all face masks in the game could lower the chance of infection by a small percentage. Makes sense to cover your mouth while bashing their brains :D

 

Or (boxing) mouthguard, if the +1 fortitude and -% in infection chance is unfair combination for one tree. Then you'd have to choose, mask or mouthguard.

Ahh, so you're building in sections then? I've definitely heard of that technique before, yeah.

 

Well, you put any of my projects to shame; I do not have the same creativity as you, but such is life. Bravo, and keep up the good work. :)

And yes, the more tools the better, those would definitely be most welcome. :)

Loving those new trim blocks!  I see you have a parking space for your horse and carriage for those long trips to the castle....😁

@madmole I think it would be splendid if you could find the time (if you're willing to that is) to release some YouTube videos on your own channel showing some techniques when it comes to roofing, trimming, so forth.

For sure! 

 

Btw I used that POI on nights between 10-13, if you upgrade it enough and add some positions to kill zeds with the time, it could become a really good thing.

Exactly my point. And since I haven't done one yet in A19 (we're doing it today some time) we have no indication that they're not STILL broken. They say you're always fighting the last war, and we don't have anything else to go by, so here we are. I certainly hope we're in better shape, but until I've had a few MP hordes under my belt, I'm not trusting that we are - not through any fault of the Pimps either; bugs exist.

I quoted the context I was referring to if you would have actually read my post you would have seen that... 

 

"Have you done MP A19 Horde Night yet? We haven't. We've had Feral Wights and Cops on Day 7, Radiateds on Day 14, and Demolishers in quantity on Day 21 in A18. Sure they've nerfed the MP horde nights. I don't buy it until we've experienced it, repeatedly. "

 

Which, you even replied to also telling him it has now been fixed.... So yes, MP Horde nights in 18.4 were broken.

My favorite build, believe it or not, is agility, because I find the knife to be such a smooth and stamina-efficient weapon. 10 stamina per power attack, 3 headshots to kill a female, 4 to kill a male, 6 to kill a tank; Extremely fast, accurate, it FEELS like a knife.

Same here. Love agility. For BMs I just make murder holes and look them in the eye and stab zombies in the face. When I run out of stamina, blunderbuss or shotgun them a bit or pistol, then back to stabbing. Rotate though targets to maximize bleed damage.

 

Bow is also great now for stealth damage.

He was responding to me pointing out the problems in Multiplayer A18 Horde Nights where we were getting, as an example, 17 demolishers on Day 21 horde with five level 19-24 characters. Which you've already stated you've fixed - the post he was responding to was me not being convinced because I haven't seen it yet, and I don't know if there might be a bug in there is all.

Are there plans to add any double wooden doors in the future, or for us to have the ability to place the current doors both available in survival and in creative in that configuration?
