I can't wait !

One more day...

Then, I'll go full primitive cave man and live a happy life with trader Jen.

 

I've been watching streams and videos and stuff for days now...

 

By the way, you can still get grenade schematic on the first week. This should be at game stage +90

Wait, I thought Trader Jen was dating that Australian guy? Is she cheating on him? 😉

I think that Australian guy is an expert at relationships. He's had 2, potentially 3, exes so far! ;)

I was referring to the grand opening of this thread, but hey, if you can make that happen too, that would be awesome. :)

 

Anyhoo, back to dormancy for this thread until tomorrow!

Food and water are capped to max health/stamina and plummet constantly right from level 1 (i.e. no more overeating/drinking). Day one, doing noob quests, running to trader and getting one buried crap quest done (along with my starter PoI and one right by the buried supplies); 3 big cans (chili, pasta, one of silver ones), 4 small cans ( cat food x2, tuna, pears) and 4 bottles of water just to stay above 50%. Kind of obnoxious actually.

 

Stone Axe drains stamina really quickly.

 

The treasure radius thing is neat and the new zombies/poi's are nice.

 

Dr. Jen has been turned into Dr.Waifu because of course.

 

Burnt Biome has the screecher sound effect and music of wasteland which is a little disorienting.

 

The new dynamic music is nicer, but it still hits that martial theme too often. Also the zombie danger techno battle music could use some variation.

Since there is no feedback thread yet, I'll post it in here:

Like most of the new graphics. But the new garbage boxes (small ones on the ground) as well as a lot of the gras textures (texture on the gras and the grastexture on dirt) look super flat as if they do not interact with any light. It was hard getting used to it. It really sticks out and makes the game feel cartoonish.


To counterbalance: I love the new blunderbus! I found one day 1 and this is the first time since I believe A8 that I felt like using the blunderbuss! Feels great and the early loot makes it even more rewarding to use!

Couple of things. First off, the FPS is actually quite decent which is a rarity with 7DtD pre-releases. The lighting is definitely an improvement. The core game seems as easy as before which is not a negative more just in comparison to playing A18. Looting currently brings up a ton of schematics, so I expect that to be nerfed a little.

 

Nice touches are the zombies finally understanding how to jump over things rather than manically beating at a railing. You start your game at 7 in the morning instead of midday meaning your first day is longer and the immediate darkness at 22:00 is now gone it's far more gradual.

 

Overall, it seems very solid, only on my first day so can't really comment on the more advanced stuff.

Seriously. All in-game boobs and hips now 30% larger! I guess young boys are the primary target demographic, though...
