Ravenhearst Mod

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I've been playing this game with my buddy on and off for the past month or so and we are about to start the second horde night, I'm somewhat shocked we survived the first horde night because we ran around like idiots the first couple game days trying to figure things out. It was great fun and now I enjoy this mod the most.

 

We've been having a hard time finding a research desk but recently lucked out and got a workbench and blacksmith forge so we got that going for us at least.

 

Anyways, I'm trying to plan our base design expansions and so far we've been upgrading a game building that was flagstone and expanding it with cobblestone walls as needed. My question is in regards to obtaining concrete or sticking with iron blocks for outer base walls. We are close to obtaining an auger (3 chapters out of 4) and I want to know the viability of crafting bulk concrete (which is time consuming) or sticking with iron blocks which are relatively fast and easy to repair with scrap iron (easy to get from smelting iron ore and recovering the iron scrap from the forge).

 

Is it possible to repair the auger with a basic repair kit, or do you need one of those newer "XXX Repair Kit" items?

 

Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure if this is a bug or an intended thing, but I've just started playing the RH 6.4 and whenever I drink something from a jar or use a jar of food (haven't had any cans to try it on yet) the jar gets consumed with the food.  I'm not sure if this is something that is intended or not, but its difficult early game when you're just trying to get started that losing *any* sort of resource is hard on you.  Is this just something with my game? Is it a bug? Is there a way to fix this? If not, its not a huge deal, but it can be frustrating.

That is not a bug. Starting with version 6.4.3, you no longer get jars back after consuming a food or drink.

 

You get empty cans back when you drink them. I'm not sure if that is a bug then, but the strategy we used was to keep all the empty cans we got and turn them into cans of boiled water because we would get the cans back each time we consumed it. This allowed us to stay hydrated even if we got dysentery up to 66% from drinking multiple cans of water (10% dysentery from can of boiled water).

 

To get bottles of water you need to be able to craft the empty glass jars in bulk which requires a blacksmith forge and mold. Molds are fairly easy to make, getting the forge is the tricky part. Until then, the only reasonable way to get water consistently is with cans, which can be annoying because they don't stack, but at least you don't instantly die from thirst.

Major Announcement

 

Ravenhearst 7 Experimental will be releasing soon. This edition of the mod will be available for a19b173 Experimental ONLY. Please make sure you backup a full copy of this experimental. We will NOT be updating these mods to any new experimentals.

 

 

These releases are to be considered unfinished and incomplete. DO NOT DOWNLOAD OR PLAY THESE VERSIONS UNLESS YOU FULLY UNDERSTAND THIS  I am releasing these to give players a taste of what to expect, as well as help us in finding bugs in prep for our stable release. We wanted to give our community something to tide them over while we finish our development. This release is not to be considered stable enough for a long term play through

 

RH 7 will be releasing sometime in Stable. We can not guarantee it will be for 19.0 but that is the goal. Development takes how long it takes. A lot is still missing. If you do not wish to risk wipes or corruptions or do not wish to play an unfinished mod I urge you to wait for Stable. I want to stress that no one is forcing you to install or play. There will be issues and bugs.

 

To everyone else we look to forward to hearing what you think, and to helping us to shape the best experience possible for you. My time on these forums is very limited and the majority of my development team has moved to Discord only. If you would like your questions answered quickly please join our Discord. We have an amazing community of fellow RH veterans and new players alike that are always willing to help out and offer tips and advice, as well as myself and my team checking in daily. Full patch notes will be posted here over the weekend.

@JaxTeller718 Hey, first time player, installed the mod through the mod launcher on a new copy of the game, and when I create a new world, the game just gets stuck on Building environment... - Any way to fix this?

 

P.S Tried another type of world gen and it loaded but i'm falling through the map?!?!?

Try using Nitrogen map generator with the Ravenhearst prefabs. Works great.

Hey love your Mod.

 

It does run fine for me. I just noticed the Zombie spawning in the beginning may be a bit excessive. I usually play vanilla on permadeath/insane/nightmare and enjoy the challenge of Ravenhearst but you cant do anything other than fighting 30-50 Zombies all the time once the spawn protection wears off. This also happens at 13:00 instead of 22:00 contrary to your description. Since the weapon specific perks are also gone you are even missing bleeding or extra stun damage from the perk tree. This is very tiresome and you are fighting well into the night. The long fights also make the club the only viable weapon since you break them on repair and need the personal workbench for all other weapons in the beginning. You may look into it if its intended this way. I have the city Zombie Multiplier on 1x, other than that insane difficulty and vanilla zombie speed if thats important.

 

Looking foreward to a stable release.

We are tinkering with the zombie settings

 

The effects from the trees are still there. they are just merged into the action skill now and need better documentation so no worries there. We wont be removing those effects. 

For day 1 - 2 id make a few clubs as with any weapon class (i know classes arent in yet) our intention is to have people stay in tier 1 weapons longer. Unlike vanilla our progression will come from the use obviously so it shouldnt be too hard to gain that next tier. We do plan to add much more choice of weapon and expand beyond 3 tiers of tool and weapon all with more varied ranges of stats so that you will feel rewarded on each level up. Thats still a work in progress obviously.

We are toying with the idea of half spawns on day 1, then day 2 it trickles in until we get normal spawning. I balked at this initially because Im a jerk lol. But im seeing the case made for this being a good idea.

Thanks for the thoughtful reply and the development insight. 

 

This sounds like a good fix i noticed how even the first Action skill levels give a huge boost and the spawning rates are ok on day 2. The idea that POIs were once alive and are now too dangerous on day one would also work nicely but you are forced into them because the wildernis spawn rate is also high and you need the bent nails for your first skill points.

 

The additions sound amazing, i feel the Fun Pimps really got the beginning part right (every skill point really matters / meaningful progression / choosing your fights) and a good extension of beeing afraid of the easiest zombies is great. The scaling zombie rage system also fits perfecly in that vision.

 

Some great Ideas for Ravenhearst 7 i cant even imagine how brutal the mod will become when bandits are fully integrated.

hi,I am a brand new installation a19b180,but Got a scrolling bunch of red error messages when I start the game!

Now I confirm that it has something to do with the network connection. If I disconnect from the network, there will be this error. If I connect to the network, there will be no such error. I can start the game

Why? Does mod have to connect to the network?

It seems this is the problem of Z2 mod. Its windows.xml contains links to the two online hosted textures. These two textures also are in the local mod's folder. But by default in mod's windows.xml the online path to the texture is active, not to the local asset. So, if you play Ravenhearst offline with no internet connection then you will get NRE red messages rain on the screen.

Hello everyone,

 

First of all, thanks for the job you've done and the job you'll do with this mod, it's really awsome.

I know and understand that you work fulltime on the A19 version of the game, but I restart a game recently on 6.4 version of the mod, and I found some things strange in the game : I can't use the backpack add'on, or read the skill books (to improve skill points on javelin, knife, etc..), and it's seems that the sunglasses that improve agility or perception by 1 point doesn't boost my stat. Is it normal, or is it a bug? Do I have to raise some stat, or level, to be able to uses this items?

Thanks for reading me (sorry for my english, I'm a french guy)

Hi,

 

i'm just another player of ravenhearst 6.4, but i think i can help you because it happened something similar to me a while ago. The reason you can't read those types of skill books it may be because you try to read them while in the inventory, but the way to do it is putting them in your tool bar and use them clicking the left button, like you would do to chop off a tree. It's the same for the backpacks. About the issue with the sunglasses, the reason it doesn't boost your stats it may be because you don't have the level requirement that unlocks that level of the stat that, otherwise, you would have. If you move your pointer on the padlock next to the explanation of what that skill does, it should show you the level requirement. Once you get that level, the sunglasses should start taking effect. Have a nice day! (Sorry for my english too, i'm a spanish guy ;))

Creating a weapon will create it at a lower level than what is displayed
Also, if you select AK47, a lot of red letter errors are displayed.

Hey @JaxTeller718! I died from infection when it reached 100% and stuck in death loop on my bedroll. Is it intended? The only way I managed to continue playing is by using debuff command.

 

P.S. Sorry, forgot to mention I am using your dev version, as I needed server version, so I decided to use it.
