I have been playing A19 pregen01 for some time now and I noticed something weird...

I was trying to acquire some workstations schematics since all trader Jen's ones are broken.

 

So I started searching all around in POIs and almost all WS I found were broken (only ONE working Workbench in the entire town).

The weird thing however is that in A18 you could sometimes find the corresponding schematics for the broken WS inside it, but in A19 I never found one even after looting more than a dozen workstations in total.

 

Is this the new norm or have I just been unlucky?

Has anyone found any schematics up until now in broken workstations?

Thanks

I'm on day 6 and I just found a workbench schematic in a random diersville house. So yeah I am obviously playing Navezgane but I did also notice every workbench, forge, cement mixer & chemistry station I encountered were non working, EVERY one of them. 

My son is also playing Navezgane & he did find a few working but they definitely seem to have been nerfed down. 

So yeah, maybe you're unlucky or could be that random gen map.

Would increasing the duration of the destroy everything timer or moving its check/start to after the zombie has regained its feet work?

Possibly. AI will continue to change as we improve the game.

It seems in one of A17/18 Graphics adjustment somehow my FPS are set to 60 max cap. Even if I reduce my graphics setting 'f8' doesn't show more than 60 FPS it always can go below on load, but never cross it. I think that some settings are messed up. Is there any way to reset all graphics to fresh installation? 

Vsync On is what would cap it at 60. Turn it off. Also check your gfx driver settings, since vsync can be force on there also.

I heard somewhere that this is the new norm. I have actually yet to find a working workbench/cement mixer/chem station/forge in my world, and I've found 3 traders so far and I've done lots of looting. The chances of finding the schematic in the appropriate workstations has, as expected, been reduced as a result.

It was ridiculously easy before, I nerfed it. I've still found most of my schematics in workstations.

Well... here I go. At least now I know it's not some kind of weird bug. 😥

Thanks

Hey Americans beyond the sea, all Fingers still attached?

Hope you had lots of fun :)

 

TFP,

Was curious how happy/satisfied you are with the A19 Launch and its response in the community?

 

I heard lots of positive resonance and despite the expected amount of bugs it seems to be a really smooth experience for most.

Any expectations on how long A19 will be in experimental in relation with MF Bugs?

@madmole  I am enjoying using the Blunderbuss from start to mid-level.

Is the nerf to blunderbuss ammo cost intentional?

a single shot costs 2 gunpowder while the box of 100 shots costs 320 gunpowder? Looking at all the other recipes of Boxes of ammo, it seems it should follow around 160 Gunpowder.

Is there an updated A19 map for Navezgane posted anywhere. This would be cool to see/print out.

it would be cool, if while exploring you come across a gas station that has a map of navezgane displayed on the wall. harder to do a random gen map that way.

Have you checked your Vsink in video settings?

 

 

Well, VSync setting is there ..lol. Just kidding what I need to check there. I mean if it become 0 or max I have no clue.

Tier 5 quests are horrible compared to tier 4 and now i only have 1 available until the trader resets. I seriously regret taking the last special trader quest. Any way to downgrade quests to TIER 4?

Couldn't there be sepparate menu for each tier? (with multiple quests for each tier)

I have loot respawn turned off and now I only get like 2 factories and one brick apt recycling - none of which I ever want to do again.

 

And on the same note, why do the same 4 POI's repeat if there are more options in the town?

They still drop schematics but they lowered the chance significantly. I ended up purchasing all of my schematics from traders. At which point, a broken workstation would occasionally drop a schematic. They have also decreased the chance that workstations are operational. I didn't find a working workbench until around day 14. The trader had the schematic for sale shortly thereafter. I purchased the cement mixer  from the trader before Day 21. I didn't get a chem lab until Day 30+ and that was purchased directly from a trader as well. I eventually ended up buying the schematics for the Chem lab and Cement Mixer from traders as well.

Btw, the gun factory should NEVER give you "clear" quest!

The zombies on the top floors just keep falling down and since they don't die, you'll end up having to find them in the already taking-too-long-to-complete huge POI.

 

EDIT: I'm only getting "clear" huge POI quests at the moment for some reason.

Sadly I was unlucky on that side too.

For now I've been both at Jen's and Huge's but they've never had a workstation schematics on sale. :nono:

There is a General Support section in this forum. Your message is probably because the world you play in was generated in b154. That message will only go away with a new world.

I am finding if I leave the game on pause it crashes to desktop eventually. Time laps unknown as its crashed when I come back to it.

 

The crawlers when they burst through doors, are doing a standing up animation ??? - most odd...

New lighting looks like complete @%$*#!. Flat and unrealistic. Looks like oldschool minecraft. They also @%$*#!ed up antialiasing. Good job guys. Good update.

Can you elaborate with more details and reasons or it is just these both words. Devs put huge amount of work and sort of deserve more than two not so polite words. Thanks in advance.

Exact same issue me and a friend are having, this has been an issue for a while where there's a ton of variety in houses from tier 1-4 with a lot of these really cool areas to see and explore, and then you hit 5 and it's just Shotgun Messiah, Shamway HQ, and 6 Story Apt and literally nothing else. I don't know if there even *is* another tier 5, if there is I don't think I've seen it. I haven't had a Hospital or the skyscrapper one in a REALLY long time, like "4-5 new games and hundreds of hours" long, so those might be removed entirely from RWG? Don't think I've seen either since like A16 or A17

 

Thus far I'm also only getting clear or fetch / clear as well on the tier 5's. I guess they realized literally everyone would only take fetch quests at higher level so combated that by . . .removing fetch quests instead of fixing the reason people avoided clears? Dunno

 

Clear quests are awful for the reason you stated and because vultures count towards the clear condition and they fly off to the void, never to be seen again and get stuck on a random rafter and force you to spend 4 hours IRL trying to find them only to give up and get 0 reward

 

I think Tier 4 has the coolest PoI, but you barely get to see them before you go back to the same old trusty Shotgun Messiah, Apartment of misery, and Shamway. Pretty sure I've even seen the devs say "screw the 6 story apartment" a few times lol

 

It'd be cool to see the lower tier PoI, but with harder zombies / more zombies / random placement or something, or maybe make it timed etc. Something to let Tier 5 have more variety
