EasyPeasyLemonSqueezy Posted May 19, 2018 Share Posted May 19, 2018 Hello guys, So it's been a little while since I last commented on the forums here, but I just recently got back into 7 Days To Die after a several month break away from playing it and have come to obsessively enjoy it all over again. Which is one of the many things that makes this game awesome! You can take a nice long break, come back, and then just simply start playing again feeling refreshed. There are only a few games out there that can have that affect on me and this is certainly one of them. However, the reason I'm here, is because I just wanted to express my own personal opinion on the current console versions of 7 Days To Die and why I think the next big update we get should be the last one. Yup, that's right, the last one! First and foremost, would be to state the obvious which is something SylenThunder can't seem to stress enough and that is how the console versions are already on the brink of what they're able to handle. Apparently. I'm not a game developer so this is something I wouldn't know! But the last thing we'd want is for this game to become overly bloated and stop working altogether from trying to bite off more than it can chew. In my personal opinion, all we desperately need on consoles now is three main features from alpha 16, and those are... • Distant POI's. • All of the heatmap changes which should result in more wandering hordes and screamers. • New socket system for towns and cities in random gen. And thats it. The rest of alpha 16 would be nice as well but personally I'm willing to accept just those three features I mentioned above. Lastly, and this is where I feel many of you may disagree with me which is totally fine as this is more of an opinion than anything else. And that is, again for me personally, I find nothing about A17 appealing anyway. I checked out Joel's channel a few nights ago and saw he had uploaded a bunch of new videos I hadn't seen yet of him showcasing A17. So, out of curiosity I decided to watch them, and if I was to be completely honest and genuine I thought it actually looked awful. (Sorry The Fun Pimps!) It doesn't look like the 7 Days To Die that I've fallen in love with at all anymore, and instead just looks like every other open world game on the market now. -- Big bouncy exclamation marks, vomit-inducing health bars, no more plains biome, new jeep vehicle that can plough through trees and looks like it belongs in the Mad Max universe, very basic gun modifications which are cool but aren't a necessity, and even more rugged terrain. -- The only thing that got me excited was when Joel said that the AI was under massive reconstruction. Everything else was just... meh. Edit: What about you guys? Would you like to see the console versions of 7 Days To Die try and reach PC status in terms of features and content, or would you like to see them officially finish it with one last big update and then release nothing but bug fixes? I'm not here to try and speak for everyone else, or even debate with anyone for that matter. I'm just simply throwing it out there that I wouldn't mind if the next update for console's is the last we'll ever see. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
