No, no, no. You guys are ruining it. :p For this idea to go anywhere (and it probably won't, though I'm curious to hear faatal's thoughts on it), it should be dead simple. Just a point moving through space, just for wandering hordes, with a couple variables stored for how big & tough that horde is. No navigation, no collisions, no damage given or taken... no calculations before it's in range of a player. Then it's in no way worse than what we have now, and offers some important benefits.

 

I like this! It would make the world feel more alive and if it was a massive horde, you would actively evade them or try and lure them away if they were heading for your base!

 

I remember in an earlier alpha watching a wandering horde walk by my makeshift base. It was 2nd or 3rd day, I had bugger all weapons and I was hiding in the attic peering out the window as a stream of them walked by, partly enthralled and crapping myself at the same time!

 

Good times - thanks TFP :)

that was question about a17, if you read it. i only wanted to be clear.

 

I did read it. :) The programmer doesn't know if they're known bugs, either. Each programmer has their area of responsibility, so none of them know the state of every bug offhand. To answer you, they'd have to search through all the bug reports, the same way you say you "do not have time to read over all bugs posts." Except when the programmer does it, that means losing time that could be spent fixing bugs.

 

Most things players notice won't get fixed if there's no bug report made about them. So to get the results you and everyone really wants - for the bugs to be fixed - the best thing to do is to report the bugs you've found in the proper place, so that they get in the system, after making an effort to search if they've come up before.

Have a great honeymoon DeVega! We’ll kill a few extra Zeds on your behalf!

 

Thanks mate! Could you take over my nagging and being the forum grumpkin until I'm back? That would be appreciated around here.. ;)

 

- - - Updated - - -

 

A glass of water would be nice. :)

 

Water we have plenty enough over here!

 

For clarification; I'm from Europe, travelling to the US. So maybe I can bring some European refreshments to TFP in the US? Like.. Bratwurst?

So.. I'm off for my honeymoon tomorrow. Is there anything I can bring you guys from Europe? :)

 

Okay Joel! It’s safe to release it now!!

 

What sights are you guys planning to see? You going to go Geological like Grand Canyon or Yellowstone?

 

Or are you just doing Vegas...?

Since the 7DTD SteamDb entry was updated today with another build; could it mean that Madmole is preparing to make another video?

Joel would create a new build to include the latest fixes before making a video so...

 

We'll see if we get a second playthrough video today... Anything is better than nothing!

in german they have the

 

"Totensonntag"

but their is no Translation for that word

https://www.dict.cc/?s=Totensonntag

 

Totensonntag (Sunday of the Dead), also called Ewigkeitssonntag (Eternity Sunday) or Totenfest, is a German Protestant religious holiday observed mainly in Lutheran churches.
Wikipedia

 

Words like this are literally carried over like the word chauffeur is really a French word for driver.

 

 

I did mess up the joke. I meant to say: What do all (undead) have in common once a year.

 

Answer: unbirthdays

But the fish you buy in the store are from other people fishing....

 

Who gets paid... Its a job, see ;).

Not to sure, the "fileing job" or "cleaning job" simulator games, are going to be all that popular.

 

Not sure how old you are but that is a pretty big opinion...One of my favorite things to do on vacation is fish. I'm not from the generation where you have to be looking at a phone every 3 seconds either, so maybe that matters?

I don't necessarily like fishing in games, but I would in 7DTD if they made recipes that were worth the time, it all just depends for me, I love taking the time on longer/harder quests to get something really worthwhile..I saw where they were going to work on a boat, so I wasn't sure what direction it was heading, but it could make for a lot of cool ideas...

Does this count as off topic dead mole? :)

 

I'm from 79.

 

In all fairness I was voicing my own opinion. I have friends who enjoy fishing too, but I still find it a waste of time. If I go along, I usually just end up getting drunk to amuse myself ;).

It may be old but I just found it.

 

It shows that zombies can be reasonable, too.

 

 

I present to you a parody video in honor of TFP: "Re: Your Game"

 

I am not a singer or video editor, but I think my lyrics are pretty damn good. If somebody wants to do a better recording or make a music video using in-game footage, be my guest. I just want credit for the parody lyrics.

Never obviously. England already caved partially, using km etc. - but maybe they'll revert after they finally Brexit (that as close as i'm gonna go to politics - its meant funny not as the start of a discussion :) )

 

We use both whenever applicable. Roads and speed are measured in miles, lumber and building supplies are generally in metric, beer comes in pints whereas wine and spirits are measured in millilitres.

 

We have mile-markers on the roads that have been there for about a thousand years (literally), it's going to take us a while to fully adapt. :-)
