Nice game. I made it about half way through and stopped playing, but I do that with plenty of games. I bought Below Zero, but not playing until more done.

im just waiting for it to come to xbox. you should play it all the way! even though at times that game becomes a horror game! *COUGH* REAPER *COUGH*

Is zombie incredible reach on the non "server" player in peer to peer still on your list?  ;);)

 

Yes, it just got buried under a lot of other tasks. Player reach could actually use a nerf too.

You do mean for containers/workstations too right? We can be like 24 feet away and open stuff now heh

Yeah, I wouldn't mind to have to get right up to a cabinet or a box rather than being able to loot it from several meters away. 😛 At least it's not as bad as the school buses and the military trucks used to be. 😛

I'm just talking about melee combat reach. Watch a player hit stuff. They can hit while visually not touching. Now some of that extra reach might stay, because we may decide it makes for better feeling combat. Just my opinion.

Yeah I noticed that and detatched the camera and played with it with the swing arc display activated, it's quite long and the visual thing is noticable. But, it kinda sorta does help melee out... I know it really does on my nightmare speed runs.

 

But looting/activating workstations and etc. definitely is way longer than it used to be lol.

Yep, I am willing to bet what feels "right" for some players is player magic hands as things in 1st person look alot different from 3rd person.

for a19 i gotta say, the close combat with all the weapons felt better to me than a18, in 18 i was only good with clubs and the stun baton, now i can use any weapon as they seem to react better and hit better, i even have a new found love for the knives, i so want a katana in the game or even a sword, machete good for carving, sword better for combat lol

I have an idea for a mutated fly human gross looking thing but we were a little worried it might turn into a hornet 2.0 issue that people wouldn't like it.

What I like most about the game is that there are no guns. It make such a difference if you are the hunter or the prey.

@madmole Hello.

1: Machete Power Attack have less reach and knockback than regular attack.

2: A Matter of Stacks

Spoiler

Please, can add Stack of Clay to Art of Mining book 5?

We have Stack of Sand, Iron, Coal, Nitrate, Lead, Rock, Oil Shale and even Wood, why not Clay?

And about Gunpowder, Gas and Ammo, any way to let us compact normal units into stacks? Maybe just inside a Workbench to avoid exploits.


3: I am going deaf thanks to this game!!! 🧏‍♂️

Spoiler

Is it possible add aa option in the audio settings menu to disable Auger and Chainsaw sounds, but not its mechanics and just for self? With this option enabled, auger and chainsaw will still me audible by other players and entities (unless these players have enabled this option too) and these tools will still attract zombies and screamers. This option just will disable the sound to its user.

 

I have various reasons to request this modification:

1: Repetitive sounds and louder sounds like auger and chainsaw can be harmfull to real heath and can even cause auditive lesions. Of course it can take years to something like that occur just because this game, but imagine a player who already work in a noise ambiente sound and when come to play have to deal with more noise? Games should be fun and relaxing, or I am wrong?

2: Remember, real people when using these tolls aways use protective auditive gear: IPE (Industrial Protective Equipment), more especific: hearing protection device.

3: The auger and chainsaw sounds are very loud and irritating, sometimes I have headache when play this game too much using these tools.

4: I cant use my auger and chainsaw and talk to my friends in Discord at same time cause the sound are very loud, because that, I need turn all game sounds off, what render me vulnerable to zombies attacks or I need lower the game sounds and increase my friends voices what is very irritating.

5: Mostly ppl I encountered in this forum and in the game agree with me these tools have very irritating sounds.

6: I cant listen music or study at same time I am using auger/chainsaw (sometimes I listen some vídeos and study at same time I play).

Someone told me TFP turned auger and chainsaw sounds louder to trouble us allowing zombies approach silently. If it is true, then put this option in the game and when auger and chainsaw are in use, the zombies sounds will be off to the player too (it is very fair to me if a man using gearing protection device cant hear his tool and the zombies.).

I believe my suggestion is very fair, it not will change any game mechanics and will turn the game more enjoyable to all.


Thank you for your attention.

Let me help you a bit with the time-frame: what prompted the download was that TFP posted on twitter that "Alpha 19 Stable is out!" ... and at this point neither the steam news nor the 7dtd.com news section were updated. If you mean to tell me that also the steam repository wasn't updated, then that's a fail on whoever decided to post that message to twitter before the new version WAS actually out.

I got confused, either.  Apologies if I made someone`s world wiped.

Agreed. I smell deception in the air.

I’m not quite up to date but I’m wondering if unique/legendary weapons are on the roadmap. 

They might arrive one day, or they might not.

THE CHANGELOG WONT LOAD. What do you mean by deception? I am happy to record a loading window but it wont show anything different except a loading circle.

 

Relax buddy, I was just messing. It's quite early for me right now so I probably won't remember any of this by the morning anyway. But yes, some video evidence could be of help?

Hey man, dont take it bad, but I think your job as a moderator would be more productive if you dont just answe like: "You shound't post it here.". Try something more functional and instructive like: "Here is not the right place to post something like that. Go for this (link) session".
