Announcement: A18.4 b4 stable

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello Everybody!

 

Here are a few things from inside this build:

#1 We updated the localization.txt to include feedback we gathered in the thread below.

#2 We have updated our gamepad vehicle controls to have accelerate and reverse on the trigger buttons, allowing for better vehicle movement

#3 and most importantly, the horn can now be used on the right D-Pad

#4 for our builders we now allow reverse rotation, hit the Reload button with a building block to rotate the other way around

#5 We have a fix for the crash caused by the electric fence.

#6 Workstations will no longer slow your game down in longer game sessions!

 

For the gamepad rebinds to take effect, you have to set controls to default once.

 

Please do test Macs with EAC enabled again. Another update to it should solve the crashing issue. Let us know, if the problem persists.

 

We are collecting feedback from the community for improvements in their language, please use this link

to participate, a new pass will come for A19, so take your chances.

 

Website post can be found here.

 

If you find non localization related bugs, please report them here.

 

For general discussions, please the dev diary.

 

For balance and performance feedback find your way to this thread, please.

 

We hope that you enjoy 7 Days to die!

 

Cheers,

Hated

Why you hating and not fixing OnSelfEquip function ?

 

no "hating" but you will not like or be happy with the answer any ways... here goes... "Priority".

 

eventually yes but more important things MUST be fixed and ready for a19. :)

Timed charges and rockets were a great addition for PvP raiding, they are difficult enough to make that putting effort into making them was front-loading time otherwise spent with an auger. It allowed higher durability modifiers like x24 to be viable, it prevents early game raiding to some extent but late game defense required better planning / materials.

 

This patch has ruined it completely. Since the landclaim durability scales both explosive damage and regular auger damage, it'll never make any sense to use explosives now.

 

I had a great fight last week that involved attacking a base where the defenders were holed up in a reinforced tower, rockets gave us an advantage of quickly being able to breach the defenses (at range also!). In fact, at one point they were repairing a block we were hitting, and we were only able to break through fast enough with two people using rockets at the same time. This was fun, I'm sure for both parties, but this story can't repeat now. Everyone complains about offline raids being no fun for the victim, but explosives gave us the ability to have a chance during an online raid.

 

I think the best solution is to put explosive damage on a different durability modifier. The next best solution is to give explosive damage some sort of boost against claimed blocks, so it still makes sense to use. PvE'rs are already complaining that they can't find a use for timed charges for example, it'd be a shame if nobody had use for a feature I'm sure you worked hard on.

 

I'm aware that PvP is not well-considered here, but PvP is why many of us play the game and this is my honest feedback.

So...........auto updated to 18.4 tonight. Opened up my game from 18.3 and all my assigned skillpoints are done and my GS is at 3 instead of the 90ish it was at. D28. Bummer. :(

After Auto-updating last night things appeared fine.

 

I then for the first time ever decided to "strip-mine a building". Taking out everything except the cabinets - fridges, beds, ceiling lights, everything.

 

Besides the fact that it was the most boring chore ever and took ages, I did get a lot of resources - the mechanical parts alone is worth over 5k dukes.

 

But boring as hell and it took the entire day, I am sure I can make more money in a day in other ways.

 

The other thing I noticed is many hit-boxes were off.

- Firstly this could be subjective - some of them were on things I generally ignore, like ceiling lights and leather couches. So I have little experience with them.

- Could be because I didn't start a new game. I could start a new game but how long will it get me to get to the point where I can strip-mine a 6 storey hotel?

- Could it however be that some things became broken in 18.4 ?

History dictates it won't come sooner so you probably have enough time to do whatever you like...:)

I'm finding many more hit boxes off. Chem stations, Forges, Workbenches are harder to put the cross-hair where you get the "E to interact" message. This really slows me down.

 

And electricity keeps going off. I have a motion sensor in my home that keeps the power on as long as I'm moving around there (5 minutes). Been working fine in Alpha 18.3 but now in Alpha 18.4 every time the 5 minute timer expires, I need to run to the generator room to go switch it off and back on. This is a pain.

 

Can I safely go back to 18.3 without losing stuff?

I loaded my savegame yesterday (started with A18.3) and I had the problem that I couldn't enter a number in the textfield in forges to create a specific amount of things (like ingots). I only could press the key "full" or create 1. the arrow keys to count up 1 didn't work, too.

 

Does anybody else occur this problem?

even tho it doesnt show it... yes there is an a18.4 stable... right click on the game title and go to properties then beta and finally "opt for none"... you WILL get the stable version.

 

i believe when we go to a19xx then the a18.4b4 stable will show... same action it has been for as long as i can remember.

 

thanks :)

Yes. This summer. Soon...is a relative term. No firm dates yet, but they are definitely getting close based upon the current pre-test group, etc.
