50K post is disappoint.

 

You had one job Jedo

 

Last time I claimed a milestone, Roland removed a bunch of posts and made my claim look stupid. I couldn’t stand to be disappointed a second time.

Love getting snarky replies for having an opinion. Not sure why you are referencing a random game review website that says it got the information form this Forum, but ok.

 

The ones most critical are also often the most touchy when critizised themselves. Sorry about that source, it was the first list I found when searching for an A16 feature list. Since it also seems to be pre-release information it is even worse.

 

 

Blocks and Building

 

Jail Cell door

Iron Bar block with outside, centre, and inside edge rotations

Outside corner stairs

Unified block system which allows for 24 rotations and texture alignment between blocks

Painting tool that will allow for multiple textures and colours for greater building variety

Bulletproof Glass

Rain Gutters

3d Ladders

 

I would have called them new options for builders. But ok.

 

World Generation

 

Distant Terrain 2.0 featuring distant POI’s

Socket System for POI’s and cities that mesh more naturally with the terrain

City districts for more organic city layouts with industrial, commercial, and residential zoning

Enhanced world previewer using the new LOD models of POI’s

 

More Character options

 

New beards

More hair styles

New clothing

 

So, if we just take this list and act as if every feature on a line was equally big, there are 24 features not about graphics and 20 about graphics.

 

But all that isn't really surprising, TFP has more graphics guys than programmers on their payroll (afaik), I would expect a lot of graphics improvements in every alpha.

 

You obviously havent played long enough to know that the early Front Runner Tek Server Admin Tool had an arena option. The airdop is a world event. Traders are NPC's. That's what Im referring to. Need more. Don't need someone to tell me go play another game just because you don't agree with me.

 

Well, mods will eventually bring any other game into 7 days, even pacman, that doesn't mean that vanilla should pack them all in. Vanilla with a battle arena? That doesn't fit. Just my opinion.

 

As a world event the airdrop is a very tiny one. The first definition I found on the net for the term calls them " Large-scale, cooperative, story-driven challenges". Weeell, 0 out of 3 properties.

 

By the way, I didn't tell you to play another game, there is no World of Zombiecraft to my knowledge, it was just an invented name that might fit 7d2d if TFP added lots of MMORPG features.

What is up with these roads? They seem smooth but are bumpy as can be if you try riding on them. In most places they are ok but some areas it's like trying to ride over jagged rock.

 

IF that is intended, then someone or something is to blame. I think DaVegaNL is responsible. :)

 

This is all intended to get the player to build an airship (the size of the Hindenburg) to travel to New York City. Where the last bastion of the living survives. But can you make it there? Being "maxed out" in part 1 only makes you about average in New York!

 

Interconnecting buildings with skylines, subways that have been abandoned and 10,000 known living who say you cant help defeat the 8 million zombies who have to be hit in the head to do any damage!

 

 

Don't forget the bandits that have come in the thousands...

Exact this

 

Trader Prefab 1a

41x41 Blocks large in the middle of a plain field a few tents, crates, sandbags and the white river flag

 

After doing a mission

Trader Prefab 1b

Spawns. 41x41 Blocks large with a Wall 39x39 2 high, still the same core

 

After doing next mission

Trader Prefab 1c

Spawns. 41x41 Blocks large with the stuff from before but additional a "Workplace" that offers a forge and a workbench.

 

...

 

That makes a lot of sense. I would say a mission for each station as well.

 

The final mission is to get back to New York on the Hindenburg sized airship with 7 others each person with an extra ability. In New York dead is dead, but you have 8 people to try to overcome the factions, the bandits, The tall buildings, the things in the sewers and subways and below...

Oh yeah sure. Go ahead. Blame your resident geologist.

Damn, they're onto me.

TFP long loong looong time player here just wanted to chime in.

 

Finally played some real time in 17.1 and it is very good.

 

Positives:

 

Zombies jog on normal nights walk during the day and Sprint during blood moons.

 

This makes for a great middle ground when playing with my wife.

 

Guns! And steel ammo.

Finally I am shooting zombies with the guns I find. Before ammo was so rare it was late game before I actually allowed myself to use guns for regular zombies.

 

 

The pois are great, I was a bit worried about the "dungeon" aspect being cheesey but you guys did it well.

 

 

 

There are 1 or two things I would change but overall I think the game now finally feels like a finished product. It still needs polish and balancing and I would still love updates and new content but I'm very happy with how it has turned out.

Agree, a17 has a lot of good stuff. The new more ammo balance make for more fun. For me, POI's are the best addition to a17. Hats off TFP POI team.

FEATURE request:

 

Automatic Door Close - having the ability to add auto close after XXX seconds or a time like ever 15s or at 0600/1200/1800/2300 for example would be a really nice feature.

 

you already have timers so maybe we have to rig a timer/battery/parts to a door to make them. (Engineering perk)

After some time with A17.1, install A16 back. Some main reason for that is because vehicles.They destroy blocks..In my base,garage is under and jeep destroys ramp that I build to go in garage..That is only reason.Maybe that will be fixed in 17.2 or the modlet will come for this.

I love this game and thanks developers and everyone for effort to update and maintan game all this years.

Hitman: here is a story about an assassin, which you must follow to reach the end. The more you play like a proper assassin, the better you will do.

 

7D2D: here is a world with (mostly) understandable rules, and also zombies. Go have fun. Do not do things which are not fun for you. There is no end, except in death.
