That's the weirdest magical spell I've ever heard. You sure it works?

 

I'm not sure if you're familiar with the original :-)

 

 

I prefer this version but it's a little NSFW... let's see how much of this gets past the profanity filter :-)

 

♥♥♥♥ muff bumhole...

So cool that blood moon horde can be a random range of day spread now. - Thanks!

 

If only remove the red text alerting the player of that night though. Players don't need a warning until around 5-6PM when the sky starts to red and the thunder starts. If you want to give players a warning earlier in the day, do so with environment changes not fracking red text.

 

Red text indicating blood moon day is arcade cheesy.

 

In the same category that the red text enemy HP health bar was in a17 dev.

Question: Why are changes like "removed all but canned food from the vending machines listed and not "RWG fixed" when nobody asked for the first one and all anyone wants is the second one?

 

Answer: TFP is a team and different people work on different things. RWG is a large time consuming change and the people tasked with that are working on it. Meanwhile, other people at TFP have other things to do and sometimes those other things are smaller and easier tasks that get done before the big tasks can be completed. At least they are working on those other tasks while RWG is being worked on instead of spending time on the beaches of Cabos San Lucas or something....

You mean work being done on the game isn't a 1000 items long and 1 item wide! Unpossible I says!!! ;-)

Well I like the RED indication. Also it is horde night, not a surprise night. Idea is to prepare for horde not getting surprised attack .. a prepartion time doesn't hurt. Plus, if you are good at math you can calculate it easily so alert won't really matter.

Try setting your blood moon to every day with a variance of 20 and see how well your new fangled maths will help you then 😁

Argh the good ole days of building a base and working hard and as quiet as 1 could and to go chop a tree and get smacked by a horde that wandered upon you with out you noticing and pretty much ♥♥♥♥ yaself lol.then died before you could gather your composure. Argh those were the days lol.

 

Edit: pretty impressive it beeped that word out lol

Well for that we have Roaming Horde still doing that ? Don't we love that, yes they thin it down, but still that is the surprise element

It won't, but it won't surprise me if I found out at 10:00 that a horde night starts, because I knew it can happen anytime. I remain prepared for it. That is how I play.

 

- - - Updated - - -

 

at present I am only concern, if they can get RWG to acceptable map ( I am not up for very good looking) and if they can make game so it run on potato computer with 32 zombie on horde, or maybe 100. Even if AI is needs to be lower and making zombie idiots again. but having 100s of them is more fun then having 2 very smart zombie.

 

Frankly I am level 181+ and zombie count seems very little to me for horde night

I sure this is temporary while devs add some music to tense moments and stuff. Joel mentioned it not far back from now.

This isn't Your game, this game players which is the majority, they want to play that way, and You're in the minority. And it's why Your (and My) opinion is not important. Which, in general, is fair. To our regret.

 

 

 

 

----------------

I only one noticed that the .xml-files are identical in versions 17.2E (b20) and 17.2E (b27).

Am i confused or are all the problems in the balance of the game solved ?

 

 

----------------

I should note that the developers have done a lot to improve modding and make finding bugs easier in A17, Thanks very much for that.

 

It would be great if they solved the problem of silent steps of sleepers, it was already kept from A14.

Let me get the obvious out of the way first: No game can heat up a video card beyond it's design specs aka running under max load.

 

Now the #1 thing to do is to get all the dust out. That can seriously hamper cooling.

 

After that it's hard to tell. Bad air flow / positioning of devices in the case? An extra fan for the case would certainly be tons cheaper than a new video card.

 

Well the dust isn't an issue since I just had my system cleaned out. However I did discover that for some odd reason my Nvidia drivers duplicated way back in 2017. So I wasn't getting the new driver updates. I have since resolved that issue and will be testing to see if that helps resolve the issue. I appreciate the feedback guys and if not will certainly check the fans and/or into adding extras if needed. That would certainly be cheaper.

Sometimes you need to crack open the gfx card to get to your fans and it's sometimes not at all obvious that you can actually get into it. I've cleaned a few where the case was held together with sticky pads on the inside. Confused the hell out of me, couldn't find a screw holding it together anywhere. Even if the engineer missed it that's an understandable mistake.

Not many understand this, its simple and appreciated that you do not just hold off the small fixes until the large ones are done. I felt you did that with A17 alas and we were agonisingly waiting over a year for 'the' update.

 

Thank god your doing it different now.

 

Bring fourth bug quenching glory.
