Well, to you it is.

To us it's a getting the player eaten by zombies game.

 

Well! I'm finally glad someone confessed to that crime against humanity (the living type, the undead can dance in a sea of spikes).

 

What Alpha was it where every time on day 5, a pack of zombie dogs came at you, snapping their teeth like a fat lady at McDonald's?

Then on Day 8 in the morning, just when you are fixing your base, two zombie bears and a small pack of zombie dogs would ninja attack you!

 

Now. We. Know.

I remember that vividly. I know it happened in A15 - because that was just after I started (4 months - and a major Alpha update? What the heck? I didn't even have enough time to...) I am pretty sure I even made a post about it.

 

Back when I was a noob, that would kind of upset me. And then resorting to the forums and reading some negativity would bother me as well.

 

I now have 3800+ hours in the game (and probably the same amount in reading all 15/16 dev posts, bug posts, mod posts, etc.), including almost all major mods (Ravenhearst 4.0 currently - which is as close to 10 for A16 as you can get) and have developed a 'thicker skin'.

 

Thank you Fun Pimps (and modders) for the most awesome game/alpha I have even been able to be a part of - and thank you for helping to develop me as a person.

 

btw - what does RC stand for? ROFL (After monitoring 80,000+ posts I have a profound amount of respect for those who professionally, calmly, and politely respond to repetitive posts.)

Sounds like something a douchey guy would say when addressing an attractive woman on the other side of a bar. "Hey boys, look at her. I think we have a release candidate! *high fives all around*.

 

Speaking of which, here's hoping we see her.. err.. it this or next weekend based on projections. Looking forward to watching vicariously through the streamers while awaiting the steam update afterward. Haven't played A16 since I saw madmole's video, just can't bring myself to kick the dead horse any longer.

Well, that was an outdated system.

Since it would always happen at the same time you could prepare yourselves for that.

Now... you can't be quite so sure what will be coming for you. ;)

 

That's true, it was a single "got ya!"

 

I'm guessing outside of POI's there will be some type of gamestage (biome modified?).

 

Its whats at the end of a POI quest that has me a little nervous/excited. I'm not the best at knife fights in phone booths, so... I would hate to die before day 7! OMG! I would have to change my avatar picture and hope people forgot my name. :)

Well, if you stop kicking it.. it'll come back and then youve got a massive zombie horse running around

Damn, now that is a good counter to the "mini-bike horde defense" strategy. It's horde night, and if you mount a bike and start driving, a couple "zombie-horses" spawn with the capability of running *slightly* faster than your mini bike does.

Now I know what to expect: Morning of day 2 I was quietly harveting a rock when 3 dogs appeared from behind the nearest goldenrod flower… Well that was not a fair fight… at all. Day 3 trying to go to the trader, see a zombie bear mauling a poor zombie down in the woods. Try to sneak around and continue peacefully to the trader. Well it appears that this big direwolf was better at sneaking around than me. It was also better at fighting…

oh man, could you imagine that? you're on your mini bike for horde night because you're either too lazy to deal with it or mid-build and you look behind you and there's a stampede of zombie horses hunting you down

In my current game, I got both on day 3. Coincidentally I had just gone around the outside of a POI one way while the first horde went around it the other way, and I'd nerdpoled 4 frames up the side of a ruin, crouched and gone to the next room to respond to a question from my wife when the second group of 4-legged nasties came around. I returned just in time to see a bear butt across the street and heard howls as I put on the headset.

 

On the plus side, the nightly dog hordes being a thing of the past mean I occasionally do spend a bit of time outside during nights now.

Also, the zombie bear disguised as a deer is a common one, I hear. They are easy to detect however, just open their mouth and count their teeth. If they start giggling, it's a bear.

 

Roland told me that one and I'm sure its right.

They are changing horde night to a random day and random time after the first 3 days.

 

Wait what? I completely missed that. And... I'm still not seeing it in their features list on this thread.

 

Roland? Is this now "Some Odd Days To Die"? :D Cool... and... rather frightening... lol.

That would be totally insane.

 

Game title changing to "Some random number of days to die" ???

 

I wouldn't mind a random dog horde or wandering hordes more often on random nights, however... :smile-new:

 

Then again as soon as they go Gold A lot of people will be more focused to mod it up a lot to their preferences.
