I love the desert. Awesome biome. But tough in the beginning. Cowboy hat, poncho, cowboy boots, light armor and insulation skill is your friend.

This.

For whatever reason, ppl tend to forget about the "Well Insulated" perk.

Wood and metal ones (more wood ones laying around than metal, so far)

 

You really should try the log spikes. I first started comparing and working with them to spikes in A-9.3 and they are much better.

The regular wood spikes are faster cheaper and quicker to deploy but they take damage when something hits them. They degrade quickly.

 

 

The log spikes are only damaged if you hit them but keep damaging as long as the thing being damaged is in range.

 

 

Ideally, you will want to dig a trench at least two spaces wide all-the-way around your fort. Then place the log spikes in the trench two spaces wide, same as the trench. This will insure maximum damage to your enemy's as they attack the fort because of them having to walk on them.

 

Zombies will attack the spikes but not so much and log spikes will last so much longer than the other type.

 

Plus you can upgrade them. If you have the metal, you can make medal log spikes which can save wood but cost a trainload in medal. They are better both in defense and offence but expensive.

Guys, when i was doing video record on 56 horde night with melee base game kinda crashed - opened console with infinite errors flow that i couldn't even close so had to interrupt record, but you can notice it in the end of video.

 

Does anybody knows what can cause that bug? It happens a few times already on horde night in b199 kinda frustrating to quit in the middle of action)

Has to do with a radiated vulture spawn during blood moon. It's been fixed for next build already. Until then, you either have to mod it out, mod a replacement, or just keep trying and hoping you get lucky it isn't one of the spawns, lol. I'm sure someone can give you a quick fix for it for now.

oh i didn't forgot about that perk... i put 2 points in here as soon as i could

 

But this is just a minor detail ... i need to adapt better to the biome. I was mostly in plains or forest during the last alpha.

That was SHOCKING!

 

Maybe replace the floor with some log spikes.

 

I don't know about the error. Does it have a pattern like the hoard suddenly stops coming?

I've yet to see a green Boar, lol. I keep hearing all about them. I just gave up trying to get past that radiated vulture spawn. Tried so many times on day 21... was so frustrating too :/

I had this on my first horde night and i just quit and relaunch and it was fine ... and i had radiated spider zombie and cops already so glad to not have the radiated vulture as well :)

except the log spikes no longer exist.

 

Also, the two wide trench no longer works. Regular zombies can jump three blocks, spiders can jump five. They will also stand on top of each other to climb out of moats. I have seen them dog pile up six blocks, and the one on top leaped to the top of the block six blocks up.

 

Things that used to work no longer do.

Yeah, I did that on day 14, got past it... I've tried some number of double digits now on day 21, keep getting it every freaking time... so I'm just done, lol. I'll start a new game for now, haha.

Again, the log spikes no longer exist. Have you even played the experimental version?

 

And if you haven't, why are you getting all uppity with people who have?

Yep, the radiated vultures are bugged. The same just happened to me a few minutes ago.

I haven't started a new game yet since A17e was released, but I think I will with the next update.
