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".

Hey man, I wasn't telling him not to post it here. I was joking that he was showing the forum being down by....posting on the forum. Just a joke. Go play some A19 stable and relax a bit. :)

I am playing right now, cleaning Dishong Tower alone with my crossbow.

Where are you to help me then? =(

 

I am infected and with broken arm and no medication, that is in my vehicle in the entrance and I am at 13th level.

I tried to help. For years I pushed for ziplines. One zipline from the 13th floor down to your car would get you to your meds in no time. ;)

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.

 

Today is the first day of A19 stable and the server is overloaded with thousands of people all trying to read the patch notes. You may have to wait awhile.

Hummm, lets see... lets see. And I am listening a video about atrophisics too, something about Interestelar Space and Space Voyages.

Fetch & chew.

 

 

He will always be after your brains from now on. 

Don't throw stuff at my crotch!

I have to prepare mentally for a baby :P

Its easy to prepare for a baby, just don't sleep for three days or so.  Once that state of mind feels OK, you're good! :)

 

I wont get into everything it takes for a woman, it's just too inconceivable for a guy.  But if you would like a sample, pull your upper lip up and around to the back of your head, its a start.  😁  (Edit:  I meant 😇)

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.

That's exactly the case. I wouldn't call it a fail though. I like the fact that they threat me with an update on the general timeframe of 24 hours after posting.

Except the issue in the screenshot is not about the forums, but about the changelog. And it happens for other pages of the site too (main page, news page, etc) :-s

 

Any chance for an estimate of when it might get fixed? It's been hours already. Getting into double-digits even. :-|

Oh... In that case i wouldn't call it just a "fail" either. Making you post something that isn't true, and might not be true for hours is definitely a complete @%$*#!-up.

Question....when building minibike, motorcycles, etc...should I build those with quality 1 batteries & save the good batteries for something else? 

I think I read somewhere that quality no longer matters in vehicles like it used to. 

For vehicles the quality of batteries does not matter, therefore I'd always use the worst one for that purpose. Better batteries either sell for a lot of money to the trader or can be used to generate electricity in a battery bank, where quality matters.

I'm just curious as for the reasoning behind the decision for making the wine barrels not lootable again. Was it found to be too overpowered early game, with all that bottled murky water?

They are still lootable in my game? i hope they dont follow through with that, if anything they should add more loot to them like beer, grain alcohol or if your really lucky moonshine.

If you didn’t start a new map for b180 the already spawned ones will still be lootable. Any new ones that get found probably won’t be. :p

Any hints on what we can expect in the .1 and .2 patches for A19?    Only reason I ask is that I still may hold off on starting a game for a bit if the .2 patch as a semi big feature like the junk drone or a big balance change.    I am in no rush, I don't care... I just would rather start a real game when the big things are more set in stone.  Like if the .X patches will just be various small bug fixes and optimizations (which im fine with) I'll start a new game up today.

I never said it was a good joke...  

 

As soon as the rush to read the patch notes by every person who just realized that their game just updated relaxes. It will probably be on and off over the next day or so as it gets reset and then overwhelmed again.

you should have bought a generous bottle of relaxants and handed a few out. :)

It wasn’t hours though. It was less than one hour. They were trying to pull all the levers simultaneously but one got pulled slightly faster. At this point it is all moot. The update has been out for a day now and everyone who wishes to, is playing. 
 

Reading the patch notes will be tough for awhile longer yet.
