Developer Diary Discussions


Recommended Posts

Game dev takes time 🤷‍♂️
for real though, 7D2D is a incredibly ambitious project and has a ****-ton of moving parts, that’s gonna take a long time, especially with this having been TFP’s inaugural game.

 

this is exactly the reason i still want TFP to write a book about developing the game, there isn’t a dev out there that wouldn’t gain a lot from reading it.

I love this addition. Makes no sense that every zed in every house is just chilling in a closet or on the roof. I honestly hope the wandering sleepers become the most common.


It would certainly make the zombies feel more natural if you snuck into an area and saw a few wandering around, doing their normal zombie routine instead of literally "sleeping" until the player triggers them into rage mode. It's the difference between a world feeling alive, and feeling like you're just playing through scripted events.

Really looking forward to seeing these wandering sleepers. I miss the constant moving zombies from A15. A16's combo of sleepers and movers was great too, but right now the world seems too quiet and lonely with all the zombies sleeping in cupboards and rafters.  

 

Not coming until at least Alpha 21. 😜

Really like how the red guy in the pedestrian traffic light looks like a zombie itself. Also, the vehicles on the road and the pavements additions are awesome.. It is cool that the school bus is now part of the street vehicles, not only be in front of the schools. New zed is cool, too. He is definitely gonna have fun with all of our new weapons 🤠

 

Will the street lights have this blinking sort of glitch effect btw ? The creepy one ? 

I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT ROLE THE GUN WILL BE!
 

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

@Roland good day to you sir. I was wondering if you would be able to answer a doubt of mine for a20. The OP says that 4 primitive weapons are coming in this next alpha, yet they leave a few weapons without primitive tier. Can you fill in the blanks and confirm (or deny) such claims ?

 

Primitive pistol- pistol- magnum- d. eagle.

Primitive rifle- hunting rifle-marksman rifle- sniper rifle

Primitive shotgun- double barrel shotgun- pump shotgun-auto shotgun

Primitive baton- baton -R. sledge- R.turret

 

 

1- What about Automatic weapons?

 

???????-AK 47- Assault Rifle- M60

 

I think I heard something about a primitive M60. Or is it a primitive automatic weapon akin to a crappy version of the AK?.

 

2- Are Crossbows getting a third or fourth model or are they staying put with just the 2 versions?

I think the Baton thing is going to go like 
Pipe Baton- Stun baton- ????? baton

and the robots will go. 
Sledge- Turret- drone


and i think it would be cool if Crossbows were more like the repeating ones. becauses they are just a bow but able to shoot in water and more damage... thats it

No clue about the AR though

Oh, that would be cool and consistent with the other melee weapons.

 

Here, I just found the 3rd tier stun baton:

1. the streets do look cool now.

2. face looks good, he is shribbling up from being infected probably.

3. that glow is from the dev's lighted helmet most likely to showcase facial features.

4. demon... haha nope, but he is a feral zombie hence the yellow eyes and night time when they have greater chance to come out and play.

 

he looks much better now,  that drab grey hooded jacket just wasnt scary,,, now he looks sinister... like he is up to something no good.

There is a pipe machine gun.

 

Crossbows are unchanged I believe.

I still don't get the role of the Pipe rifle @faatal

it looks like a Single shot, and it would make sense if it was sense its makeshift. and it does not have many of the parts of the lever action. like that bottom part close to the hand. that is not on the prim lever action Art. 

and if its not a Single shot, what role will the hunting rifle surve? 

or will this gun uses a lesser caliber like 9mm???? 

 

The pipe rifle is single shot and uses the same caliber as the hunting rifle. It is less powerful than the hunting rifle and can be scavenged Day 1 whereas the hunting rifle won't show up until later.
