Streams must fall under different rules then. I don't watch reaction videos/streams out of entertainment but I checked a few out a couple years ago "for science purposes" and I came across a stream of a guy drooling with a bag of chips in his hand, and he was "reacting" to a live event (forgot which one) for 2 hours, and he never said a word. I've lost the link to the stream since (it was on YouTube by the way), but I checked it half a year later and it was still up.

 

MrDalekJD is pretty notorious for having 10-30 seconds of commentary at the beginning of his videos and then outright re-uploading entire videos without any alterations or interruptions on his part, and rarely, if ever, are his videos removed. Hardly surprising though, YouTube is far from perfect.

Some things slip through the cracks, sure. Let's see them try this with Metallica.
 
EDIT: Also, if those videos/streams are not monetized, often the original content owners just don't care. They just don't want someone making money off of their hard work. Understandable.

I only watch official music soundtracks on YouTube (ie published by the original creator), but I would imagine there are plenty of videos out there that play the entire song with lyrics included. Like you said though, some things slip through the cracks.

 

Anyway, I'm off to see if my world will continue through stable. I highly doubt it though.

Doesn't mesh up with what was posted in the spoiler by @Jost Amman, so source?

It is in the gamestages.xml file. Line 110:

<gamestages>
        <config
                daysAliveChangeWhenKilled="2"

                difficultyBonus="1.2"

                startingWeight ="1"
                diminishingReturns ="0.5"

                lootBonusEvery = "12"
                lootBonusMaxCount = "30"
                lootBonusScale = "25"

This is what it looked like in A18:

<gamestages>
<config daysAliveChangeWhenKilled="2" scavengerGameDifficultyBonus="1.0" adventurerGameDifficultyBonus="1.2" nomadGameDifficultyBonus="1.5" warriorGameDifficultyBonus="1.7" survivalistGameDifficultyBonus="2.0" insaneGameDifficultyBonus="2.5" startingWeight="1" diminishingReturns="0.2"/>

You should do a full wipe, no previous worlds are compitable. That is done on every stable, have fun.

That's not what was asked... And in this case, "previous" means recent enough to be compatible.

Does the stable require a wipe from b180? Or will I be okay to leave my server as is. Im sure this has been asked and I missed it so my bad.

Considering that b180 *is* the same version as this stable, there should be no _need_ for a wipe.

Thanks. Looks like the explanation text that @Jost Amman quoted is at least a couple versions out of date then. :D

The only thing I have heard is Dragon Force is allowing streamers to use their music. Not sure if you like them tho. Believe it was Firespark that mentioned it in one of his videos.

Worst case I mute all but the salvageable gun sound effects and talk over. Could be so much easier though and better. I'm not sure why a game dev would not allow their game menu audio to be used on their game footage even if it is under NDA but I guess I have to roll with it.

I'm just not going to update for this very reason.

Well, yeah. I don't think the experimental branch would ever update itself to stable, except when they lock it up (e.g. for streamer weekends, iirc)...

Uninstall all you have, Right click on 7dtd in Steam library > properties > betas tab > A 19 stable. 

A restart of steam could be needed, either. Between uninstall and install. Just a hint buddy ;)

TY @Muci on your A19 stable celebration video....🤣

 

 

I give the vid 2 Stiffys up.   The butt shot put me over the edge.  
 

Even though I suspect its a stunt butt and not trader Jenn.

 

Edit: After staring at 1:59 for a few minutes... it really looks like those jeans are body paint and not real... Is she naked?

Did you know the Queen of England is allowed to kidnap any child as she sees fit, for instance, among many other questionable acts?

That includes launching a nuke at anyone, anytime.

It is merely suggested that she should refrain from doing so.

One could also die from a discharged electrical outlet, or a car crash, or someone breaking into your home. Of course these things happen and they're terrible, and it's good to be aware, but at the same time, if one were to be paranoid about every possible thing that could cause them harm, then they would never live. Again, this kind of knowledge is good to know, but not to grow. :)

... do you ever try to understand the context of what you're replying to?!? Don't need to uninstall anything, so i won't. Plus, there's no "A19 stable" in the betas tab. -.-

 

Maybe Phoenixshade35 might want to take your advice, but i wouldn't recommend it, since you've given it without a shred of interest on what their current environment is.

Oh... My bad, there actually is something there like that. :o

 

Why would anyone ever select it, or recommend selecting it, is quite beyond me tho. 😐

Because if you are starting a new server, you want to recommend to all the players to lock into a specific version.
