@faatal I know this is not exactly your department, yet I wanted to ask, do you know if road signs/paint, sidewalks, Street lights and stuff like that is going to be in RWG for a20 or is it just Navezgane at the moment?

 

Kynasdfjhkdjfhgju has been pretty quiet these past few months and we can only guess, and guesses are often wrong .

Should be since they are testing all that in RWG and then having to adjust Nav for changes that move or resize things.

Maybe a stupid question but do main roads ( well with asphalt not gravel roads) will be more "straighty" because there is too much turns ?

Hey, Are you guys planning to implement something so that we can increase FoV over the 85 mark? Since i can't do that anymore.... 7DTD is one of the best games out there and it's so sad since i can't play it anymore due to Motion Sickness. Prior patches i could increase it and play but not anymore which makes me sad....

All the best!

I'll one up you with an even dumber question:

 

If it was up to me, there'd be a whole road hierarchy with small gravel roads leading to normal roads like now, but it's followed by wider/more detailed roads all the way up to an interstate system between the very largest towns/cities, complete with POI-type features like over/underpasses and interchanges that go balls deep on the hl2 vibes.

 

If the devs at least have something even vaguely similar (anything infrastructure) to this planned down the line after they finish with HD/performance/NPC updates, can we get some kind of acknowledgment?

 

And oh yeah, in case this is too off topic, is anyone else hyped for dynamic LOD's?

There will be road variety just because RWG now has a tile system and they are making road tiles for towns that are wider and look more like real roads.

 

As far as some general hierarchy, have not heard that mentioned.

Will towns be more distance shaped? rather then just Square?

well from what i saw in the wasteland and how theres a large Layout of a city bigger then gravestown. 

and the fact that the rad wall has been increased!

They're removing the 4k RWG map option and bumping it up to 6k, or "Navezgane size" as they called it, so probably not.

Well now we have : military trucks ,fire truck and junkyard wracks... that's a.. well small number .i think add a hammer ( military jeep not a tool) could be legal - watch painkiller military base . Some civilian trucks , old cars from 80-90' some , maybe some 60 wrack on desert .  Please @faatal comfire you are doing new cars models < begging on knees> ... and strip club for snowdog and zombie girl in japanse school uniform ( i'm joking with the last two but it could be rly fun easter egg if snowdog'strip club was on the map and this zombie had 0,1% chance for respawn )

I know they have added new cars and stuff. 

but right now we don't have types of civilian cars. im not asking for a GTA level of cars but some trucks, a creepy van, a Jeep, a real Cop car, etc

Sweet! I can imagine road variety lets you do a lot more with town layout, and this is the first I've heard about the tile system. Is there anything more you're willing to share about these?

 

Thanks!

No. A bigger or smaller POI is not going to make the map bigger.

Don't know.

We are not working on vehicles other than adding mods. For a20 anyway.

Damn, thanks for taking the time to respond though!

The tile system sounds super interesting, and I understand if that information is off-limits for now, but is there anywhere I can find out more about it?

yeah i know what you mean so the "safest" option is add some old cars like in l4d2 because property rights and they were simlar so it will be easy to create something simliar but safe

no i mean in terms of variety of cars in GTA not taking them and adding them. 

just add a truck, van, jeep, cop car, Army car, SUV, Gas truck and that would be enough cars to scrap down and to add variety

but how come expand the map was expanded in terms of the rad barrier? 

there is that whole area in the wasteland that is a lay out for a city, I don't even care if you guys reuses POIs in nav! more to nav would be great!

some more cool areas would be neet too!

like a Farm in the Snow that is super dead, a airfield in the desert. etc

Hell even some more pregen maps would be nice to!
