Thanks this is better then no info at all

 

Hi all,

 

Below is a message from the console team.

 

Clare

 

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

 

Hi everyone,

 

First off, our apologies for not communicating recently about what we're working on for the 7 Days to Die console community, but rest assured, we are still supporting this project, and, in fact...have a very large update planned for later this year.

 

The new updates are going to be very cool but they involve a lot of work - we can't get too into details now since it's still in the early phase but we felt that you all should at least know that we're still working hard on the game and greatly appreciate the continued patience and support of the community.

 

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

 

 

Thanks better then no info at all and will we be able to keep the same save game file or will we have to start a new save game file

Actually, they were working on those things before they started showing all the new fun stuff. Completely re-coding the engine for the latest version of Unity is no easy task either. The optimization available in the latest version of Unity will go a long ways towards fixing the bugs like what we have with electricity, minibikes, large hordes, huge buildings, and people running low-end systems.

 

It is in Alpha development too. Don't forget this. Many people expect it to be like a finished product when it isn't even in the Beta testing stage yet.

 

It's been a while since I shared this. The PC version is the green stripe...

The game is still in Alpha? Why users have to pay full price for a game still in development? Not try to be an ass, Just curious. Anyways, Im hoping for a decent update worth coming back too.

The PC version is still in Alpha development. Console version is sold as a "completed" edition of a stable alpha build.

 

The PC version is sold as Early Access.

Console is actually a decent price for a complete game on the console, and lots of features have been added since for free.

Ban him LOL. Why do you explain it to everyone again and again. They don't care if they are too lazy to read

Back to the original message.

 

I'm assuming "later this year" is probably October-Novemberish?

Glad this hidden gem is still getting some dev attention. Improving the game sells more copies because happy gamers have big mouths.

Unfortunatly, from reading this forum, it seems the negative gamers have the bigger mouths. Luckily there are a few cooler heads among the crowd here.

Seems the hype train is for a long journey this time around! I keep checking back here for any further news, didn’t want to let the negative people be the only ones posting... can’t wait for any new content/bug fixes... in the meantime I’m happy playing the game as is... it’s a great game with a great community, thanks to Claire and all the team, as well as the awesome community here... be patient and I’m sure great things will come our way :-)

Yes, the paint system would be cool. Even the electricity just for the traps would be fun. Having the new buildings would be awesome though.

 

But truthfully, I just want to see further visual distance to be improved. It's not impossible or unheard of on console.

 

I also would like to see added to the game in regards to Random Gen world's having either a preview, or an option to semi dictate what biomes/number of towns/additional hubs could be created. Be it a populated city map, rural country side type layouts, or inbetween as is now with most builds. This would give the person more of an experience they would enjoy.

 

I love random gen for the exploration aspect. But let's be honest, unless you enable a game with creative mode enabled, you won't know if the world is barren or doesn't have the biomes you prefer until many many hours into the game.

 

But regardless, I completely enjoy the game. Despite a few buggy issues, overall, nothing has prevented me from many hours invested into multiple games. And I plan to invest a lot more hours into it lol

I'm relatively new to the game, just picked it up on Xbox about a month ago or so. Really enjoying it so far but if only 1 thing comes with the next update I hope it is a fix for the game crashes. A few of us play together online but it seems every 45min or so the host's game crashes and sets us back a few minutes. We keep playing so, while annoying, not horrible. Also very much looking forward to the features already on PC! Keep up the great work, we're hooked!

ugh i really want some kind of options for random gen, too. every random gen map seems to be 1/3rd (or more) water and it really sucks spending half of my play time desperately trying to find a way across the never ending ocean sized bodies of water.

 

i would like paint, new zombies, buildings, items, etc, etc...but i really wanna be able to cut down on most of my random gen maps being water. more than anything else. >_<

It's possible (no, I haven't heard anything on this, just supposition) that they're looking into the integration of the updated Unity engine. I've been following Unity and they've done some really cool stuff with graphics rendering which may well help with game stability. Don't take this as gospel until you hear it from the official team but if they're integating Unity 2018 then I'm very happy to wait for the update for this.

Given the extended length of time since the last update, and given the usual average (I have a chart in this thread a couple pages ago), that is what I am sincerely hoping for as well. Only time will tell though.

Hi !

 

When do you plan to add dedicated servers on console, so that we have FINALLY a real multiplayer mode ??

 

And not just a 4-player mode on a huge map on which we will spend a lifetime finding a player ...

 

Don't hold yer breath! ;)

please explain how dedicated servers would last more than 4 days before the entire map is destroyed including builings, player buildings and any lootable container?

Console updates

 

Well we’re over 2 months past the last update announcement, which was very vague. Here we are, years into the game release and still no md5 fix. Still keep getting pushed to the side like red headed step children while pc gets all the updates, and cool features. Any info on the update? I’m aware that this is a very lengthy process to release an update, but come on, people are still die hard fans for console, and people are still going out spending hard earned money on the game with no clue about the md5. Hearts break everyday. Pimps needs to work on this console update sooner rather than later. Thanks!
