Whenever I read statements from the Fun Pimps like that I wonder how many players actually play the game on a multiplayer server? Like, how many percent of all players together? Considering how unqualified this game is (in my opinion) for multiplayer servers (unless you play with some friends together only) I imagine 90 % of all players being singleplayer players. Maybe I am wrong?!

 

Anyway, leaving out stuff that would be cool for singleplayer due to some multiplayer concerns sounds unfortunate to me as this game will always be much more of a singleplayer game than a multiplayer one.

Me thinks you are grouping PvP with multiplayer. Tons of people play 7 Days on multiplayer but just with PvE. Look at the number of servers. A very small number are PvP.

Graphics is last thing you worry about when you and your friends are attacked by high level gang and you have to defend what they gathered after fresh start on new server, heh.

Its sad, when you have to sacrifice graphics to actually play the game.  At that point, you might as well go back to playing pong against each other LOL

What the hell lol did you mod the dlls or something? That's not natural in the video settings lol

If he did, goes to show you people will do anything to get a competitive edge against each other.  Its like how some people turn off grass in some shooter games so they can see their enemies better...

Well you can't get those graphics by the menu settings lol. Hey if the game lets you turn grass off and you don't, that's on you xD butyeah modding the settings isn't very nice.

None, artists aren't programmers so upgrading art has zero impact on game play.

She still looks inpired from the original, but looks scarier.

We aren't cutting zombies to make room for new ones. We are cutting ones that you would never see in 1000 days in a real apocalypse like cheerleaders and football players. There will be more unique hd zombies than ever soon enough. Most people have better performance now than ever.
 

By cutting zombies I was not referring to dropping of models. I was referring to numbers of zombies alive. My bad for not being clearer.

Yeah Rust single player and coop is so exciting. 🤪 Don't get me wrong I like Rust and have a lot of hours, but the only thing it does good is pvp.

You might like Fractured Veil. Still in development and project manager said could be year till release. They have given out some keys, so they can get feedback on what players would like added while they continue to add features. Its Rust in MMO setting. Safe starting zone and dungeon instances to go with POIs in world.

 

Looks interesting. Only played Rust for 30-40 hours myself.

I have the opposite problem. We need bigger storage options. I'm starting to run out of space. 😟 Should I stop hoarding? Nahhhh...

LOL  I'm with you.  I want to be able to add storage mods to my storage containers.  :D  

 

If it exists, I must have it in storage.  I might need it someday.  Loose screw?  Odd scrap of paper?  Piece of moldy bread?  Into the storage bin you go.  I'm hopeless when looting ... I hate to leave anything behind.  I will loot a place down to the last crumb ... just like the Grinch.

If you want, I can provide a tour of my entire storage set-up. 😂 I'm serious.

It's nvidia inspector graphics. On pvp server competition would do anything to outspot/outdps/outclass you in any way possible, so you have to adapt or die. That is why long, long time ago everyone were running with goblin character model too (got patched after our bug report in a18):

You are correct.  Its just sad that people actually use such tricks to play a game.  Guess its just human nature for some to use any means possible to win...

My husband has the SAME graphic SETTINGS as I do for 7d2d, but his game looks more like that guys screenshot than it does my game. it has something to do with his graphics card. he doesnt have any of those nvidia settings and what not, he doesnt even know how to do that. i dont know why his game looks worse than mine, other than i have a better card and more ram.

 

Hey Madmole, are you still doing your own Personal Dev Blog? If so what's the link?

Nothing a PvP server does surprises me. The definition of toxic as a general rule.

There is a zombie called a birther that is like big momma on steroids that poops out larva zombie. It is a lower priority explore later thing, we will see how it feels with the planned stuff done first.

Pulling out your birth certificate should instantly despawn it.

Finally a topic that I can comment on. 7DTD is PvE.
 My opinion that nobody is offended.
 And to get the most out of the fun, please play in MP with friends and people you don't know but always PvE.
 It is a spectacular experience. SP, sorry. I always found it boring to be alone in the world against zombies (:

 

p/d:

In addition, 
when you go to work in real life, you are thinking about what your friends may be doing at your base, 
or if when you re-enter the server, it will be horde night soon. 
Fiuf gives me goose bumps just thinking that night has come and I'm not ready (:
I want it to be stable and find a server with good ping so that I can die playing in front of the PC all weekend :D

So I just had a treasure map that unknowingly led me into the wasteland. It was just to the west of gravestown. 

I was scared sh*tless the entire time getting to the chest. I thought great, I'm gonna get mauled going after this. 

I saw a total of 1 vulture on my ride through the wasteland, through gravestown, & during/after my treasure dig....that was it!!!

Now I don't know the specifics of my game stage. 

I was on day 11 or 12, hadn't died yet. I play on default everything except I play no loot respawn & mark supply drops. Oh I did jack up the experience gain but that just due to all the restarts. After A19 goes stable, I'll leave that default too. 

 

So yeah, hopefully this changes. The wasteland & definitely the hub city in the wasteland should be more dangerous than one vulture. Even console had that right!!! (Since Roland took a shot at console's with an earlier comment 😁)
