Alpha 19 Dev Diary

Recommended Posts

Haven't tried this in 18.4 but didn't shooting an explosive arrow/bolt use to wake up a lot of sleepers in an earlier alpha, or I'm misremembering?

Anyways onto why I posted. I saw you mention that in a future update you wanna allow players the chance to do previous tier quests so they weren't always forced to do tier 5. Is that something you'll add in Alpha 19 or a later Alpha? I'm super addicted to quests now and I can't wait to choose any tier of quests at anytime.

 

This is something I'm still struggling with and why I just took a break. They didn't want everyone doing only fetch quests for Tier 5's, but didn't fix why people only did fetch quests for tier 5's, and just removed the option instead.

 

I've cleared Shotgun Messiah like 4 times already in the last week. It takes a full day, and the rewards just aren't that great. I've literally been better off just doing any Tier 2 or 3 Tier 3 fetch that show up in the list instead because I can knock out several in a day easily and I end up with way more overall rewards.

 

So far, there are at least  3 Shotgun Messiah within 1.5km of me, so basically the only quests I get are to go clear it or the Shamway place, ughhhh. I'd kill to at least have a hospital near me for a bit more variety

You playing RWG?  If so what's your seed? 4k or 8k?

RWG, 8K I believe. Which config shows your seed settings?

It's hidden somewhere in your world files, or at least it was in A18.

Look into your logfiles. Everything you ever wanted to know about your game but were afraid to ask is in there

AppData\Roaming\7DaysToDie\GeneratedWorlds\ 

 

then open the folder for the world and look for the GenerationInfo.txt. That contains the map seed.

The seed doesn't populate in the output log. It always shows as blank in mine. It also doesn't show the correct world size, always says that it's an 8k map when I almost always play on 4k maps.

Out of the blue:

Spotlights still project light through blocks. 

Armor progression doesn't feel right for crafting. Lower tier level 6 armor should be obtained before max X and max X. Mods have always been more important than the other benefits.  Only being able to craft level 6 leather when I can craft level 6 military armor may be something to look at?

Just an observation. Plz don't rake me over the coals.

In my servers output log the seeds get listed, I just checked. Maybe it is empty for your worlds because you didn't set a seed but left that space empty.

My seed is definitely not empty. I suspect the difference is that I'm in SP and your log is from a server.

I would like to rake you over the coals because your observation about armor sounds strange and undecipherable 😉. Maybe you mixed up some level/quality numbers?

Question about picking up forges -

I put LCB down, picked up forge (it spit out my Bellow and anvil) but when I put back down it was empty - lost all my smelted material. Is this intended design ? Thx

It has been that way for a while, but I don't know if it is intended or not.

Seems more like a limitation more than anything; the game probably can't keep the memory of the forge's contents perhaps.

 

Edit: Or intended. Faatal?

Intended...that has always been the case (since A15 or so when you could pickup placed workstations) if you wanted to move a forge that you had to empty it of materials first or accept that they are lost.

You are correct. In a local game the seed is not listed. The GamePref.GameSeed as well as GamePref.WorldGenSize seem to be default values used in the GUI (suggested by the prefix "GamePref").

 

The size of the world is shown in the line "Biomes image size w= 4096, h = 4096".

Seed is Treatable Testes

 

Do not judge me for my seed name, my mind is an enigma

It may be a 4K seed since the generation time was low, I usually do 8K but it usually took nearly an hour to generate so this low generation makes me suspect a 4K

i have notice 2 little things in A19

 

1: Boes eyes. While all the new zombies eyes have white out eyes, Boes eyes look normal (minis the red) just a small thing

 

and 2 the spear book!

if you look on the model of the book you can see the Authors name. but look at the last name..

 

Cassadore! Duke's last name is Cassadore.....

 

 

Spoiler

Well seems to me there ought to be a little warning "your gonna lose material" or spit out the materials. I did not lose the anvil or bellows... So it's coded to check for those and and put in ur inventory
