I find it so sad that 7 Days to die as Mixed Reviews in Recent Reviews on Steam, and a Mostly Positive rating overall, compared to Very Positive not so long ago. All that because of some people who cannot wait for greatness to be created and ready (in this case, A17 of course).

 

My all time favorite game... It breaks my heart! :( But I play A16.4 and suddenly :( turns into this :)

 

I feel your frustration, Space4Ace. I love this game. Sure, I've been frustrated by the slowness of the development timeline, as I'd imagine most of the player base is. Honestly, I'd imagine the developers are probably fairly frustrated themselves...but they want to put out the best A17 they can...so they parley what information they can to us and they keep plugging along.

 

If I had one major criticism of TFP, it'd be that they don't communicate as well as they could. Roland, Fataal and Gazz do their best to keep us informed here (with the occasional assist from MadMole), and I appreciate that. I just wish they'd translate some of that communication over to Steam at points. Though, perhaps Steam requires a new update/build before you can do that. I dunno. Wouldn't make sense for that to be the case, but LOTS of things don't make sense. ;)

 

But yeah, the butt-hurt whining and bad-reviewing the game because you're PO'd that 17 hasn't dropped yet is ridiculous. The game is playable as-is...and not only playable, but actually enjoyable. Yet still you have people who will ignore that completely, all so they can damage the rep of the game and the devs in some sort of (at best) misguided attempt to spur the devs to hurry up, or (at worst) just so they can have some sort of petty, spiteful vengeance on a very hardworking set of developers for not doing things the way they should.

Hi guys. Really busy day today so I’ve had to serve myself up some ketchup.

 

A17 is going to be amazing. Some of the polishing up and refining of some of the features that just happened this week are complete game changers. The game may feel dead to a lot of people but we should codename this release as The Phoenix because once people watch the streamers and then get their hands on it and word gets out I have no doubt 7 Days will rise again higher than ever before. I just hope all of you who are naysaying and preaching doom will be glad to be wrong.

 

I’ll try switching to copying stuff over instead of moving. I just figured it was the once-a-weekers that were the ones complaining. If you are reading daily there should be zero difference. Everything up until 3 days ago is still in this thread. That quote from Madmole on the photos is from his twitter so the arrows don’t match up with anything. Sorry.

 

There are no official release dates. I tell the streamers it won’t be the next couple of weeks so they can plan for other content in case they’re not currently doing 7 Days to Die (you know, with it being dead and all). If they choose to “leak” that out then that creates unofficial reports of when it won’t be coming which is fine. I fine telling you it won’t be today nor next weekend either.

 

TFP does have an internal release date they are aiming for but I ain’t saying when that is. You could send me a million dollars and I would tell you in a second. But other than that know that it is for sure coming and it will be worth it and to survive you will have to rethink, restrategize, and adapt from what you previously knew. Soon you will be back at a fresh Day 1 and it’s going to be fantastic.

Hey Roland, this is off topic but can you help me with some math homework?

 

T[sUB]Kraken[/sUB] > T[sUB]0[/sUB] + 7 days
T[sUB]0[/sUB] = Updates[sUB]dev[/sUB] + Updates[sUB]dev[/sUB] - 3 days + k[sUB]etchup[/sUB]
$1,000,000 = T[sUB]Kraken[/sUB] + 1 second

 

I want to solve for TKraken.

YES! This is exactly what I have signed up for! Thank you!

From what I understood is being able to crawl through a 1x1 hole was taken out because if zombies can't do it we shouldn't be able to do it either. From what I have read from time to time now is that zombies will be able to do it but we won't. If so, I don't understand why.

 

Zombies do not go through 1x1 openings. The pathing grid is a shared resource and is designed for 2m tall paths.

I miss the days of the 1x1 entrance where no zombie could get inside.

Also the mining helmet light was much cooler then as well.

well since it's been over a year since A16's release, I hope it is. most of us have been waiting patently but I really hope some of the on going bugs that plagued A16 have been fixed with this new release. if not please please please just delay it longer and fix them.. I rather wait a month or two longer then having to wait another year before they might be fixed.. :)

How many things do you want me to list that you got wrong in your post? I'll just name a couple.

 

NO, A16.4b8 is NOT complete. There are all kinds of things still missing that are planned for the game and there are several bugs present that it was decided would be better dealt with later.

 

NO, the game has not been at the same alpha for over a year. They don't release every alpha build to the public. A dev posted somewhere how many builds they have gone through but I don't feel like hunting the post down. You can if it is important to you.

 

A17 is on b137 now.

That is why I normally only play till a certain number of days...then wait till the next alpha...

It has gotten longer each one , since I started in Alpha 7 , played till like day 24 or so...then A16 I played till day 60 something...

This game is not done yet and I do not want to burn myself out on an incomplete and unfinished game before it even officially releases!

There have been times this last year where I WANT to go back and play it...but thankfully with work , family , my own Unity project and

now the Halloween season keeping me busy...I can wait ;)

 

 

But hopefully it is sometime soon!

But then we would deny it and they would have to send me a million, then the rest deny it and so on until we all got a million and by then it would be released, so waste of money. But they can try. ;)

so you're saying that the primary building of A17 is done and all we are waiting for is the bugs to be ironed out

 

No.

 

A17 is not a year's worth of bug fixes. Note the sarcasm in my previous post.
