Those are good ones. It will be nice to not have them spin anymore.

And a flame thrower turret would be awesome. Can you imagine the gas consumption though?

@faatal or Roland

 

Have there been any changes to the electric system? Will it still cause problems in the sector if too many lights/turrets are in use? I know some a16 servers modded out and or banned power for this reason. I also lost a base or 2 to it.

As far as I know the pathing takes into account all blocks regardless of how they got there. They'll likely plow through the snow blocks (pun intended) as they're pretty weak compared to other blocks.

 

That's what I understand from the discussions on digging zombies a while ago.

 

Yes. The path grid scanner looks at the colliders and blocks in an area. It does not care how a block got there.

As far as I know, it is mostly the same. Maybe with some bug fixes.

Shortly zeds will whip our asses without much of a thought. This is why I love this game more and more.

Thanks bud.

not a chance.

 

I'm guessing 3 weeks from the issues that one of TFP listed out.

 

I see some posts about a bug list. I think the only list posted was some of my minor bugs, that I DID NOT think needed fixing for A17e to be released. That list tells you nothing about when A17e might be released, because those are NOT any of the bugs we are working on.

 

Please, everyone... read and quote our posts instead of trying to remember what we said.

@Madmole

I see alot of ppl here that are waiting for the game, and some want it NOW (me included)

Can't you just release it now? I know its much more todo for you guys, and it comes with bugs still. But let us see it :)

Im not begging, im asking :)

We are here for a reason, and that is; we love the game and want to get in on it all. we can help with bugreport aswell, and that is a good thing i think.

 

The thing is, we have a good group of testers who play, chat and give us bug reports everyday. We have enough. More and it just turns into duplication of bug reports and craziness. When A17e is released, then more players are better as we look for the more rare bugs (and fine tune).

Ah I see, my mistake.

 

Is there a reason that TFP doesn't list the bugs that need to be resolved for A17e to be released?

 

It would be nice to watch that dwindle down.

Speculations and useless comments. Pimps actually save us as keeping this a secret.

Question got lost in the shuffle:

 

Roland or Faatal: Is there any word on player vending machines? Ill elaborate.. So at least in vanilla in a15/16 if a player was offline more than the basic 7 days not only would their LCB expire but their vending machine would bug out any other player including admins if they got too close to said vending machine and would force the player to the command console. Has this been fixed so that the player(s) do not get stuck and it just makes the machine inoperable?

A lot of time fixing one issue causes 10 more, which would lead to some users getting angry everytime the list increases.

@faatal: Which vehicle do you like the best?

 

4x4 truck is best land vehicle, but gyrocopter is more fun (just needs more polish).

Is driving the 4x4 in the woods nearly impossible not to get stuck between trees? Is it better to stay in open areas and on the road when in the woods?

Because there is no definitive list yet. Every day the testers and devs find more. A lot of it is refinement that comes from testing. Too slow/fast/strong/weak/whatever.

any hopes of adding VR support rift or vive? would be amazing and was one of the kickstarter goals. I have tried many vr titles and 7DTD would be a great addition ...100+ fps is managable to negate motion sickness and if you do please dont do teleport for movement kinda ruins the feel for a FPS .please please please please lol ...just keep making an already awesome game even better with every update !!!

Hi faatal! I have a question, how it works the boss system? And do they have a unique art design or are stronger versions of another mobs?

I imagine it would cause the same type of anguish Roland's smiley meme troll did to some. Imagine some of the people on here as they watch the bug list dwindle-grow-dwindle-grow-grow-getdownto1-grow-etc. People would attach hidden meanings. Concoct crazy release dates. Recalculate release dates. Projections turn to 'promises'. Promises would be broken. Feelings would be hurt. Safe spaces violated. Lives ruined. And then the game would be released. On the same day it would have with or without all the crazy.
