[06/06] Message from the Team

Ok on a little more serious note. Clare would you mind letting the team know while they are working on the update to change the % of the water on the map since we can't do like PC and go change it ourselves. I don't think anyone would complain any if that got tweaked a little. I'm not saying change it a massive amount but just enough to where it doesn't seem like most seeds are nothing but oceans lol. Just a suggestion 

 

I support this suggestion for changing water percentages. Since living near such places are a flippin' nightmare when air drops fall into deep water, it wastes air drops. Either that or allow for the crafting oxygen tanks or a rebreather or something. That's not even getting into the long travel times they create and how you can apparently freeze to death even while wearing +40 temperature clothing.

 

Also, it would be nice if they would fix the issue with newly planted goldenrod having little flecks of gold floating around it like little fire flies or something. It's as if someone tried to reduce the size of the full size plant by simply shrinking the fully matured plant in an image editing program like GIMP or Photoshop and missed a few of the outer edge sections when the reduced it.

I shall add it to my suggestion list for the team and see if the generator can be tweaked at all to reduce the amount of water-world style maps. No harm in asking ^_^

Thanks, you are awesome as always and yes no harm at all in asking especially something that is doable. If nothing else they say no and we just live with it lol.

I wasn't even thinking about this but good point lol. I was just thinking in general because console is a smaller map and all that water is pretty much useless and a big pain in general. On PC it is still a pain to get around but so much more space for land as well. Although I have put in a few PC seeds that been mostly water lol. But again this where I can go in the files and change some stuff around and make that seed have less water and such where as in console we don't get that option.

Good idea on the water percentage, ive never really thought about that.

Of course i can see people reading this and saying "no, instead we need a wasteland percentage measure".

Remember the numerous posts regarding wastleland, dogs, & landmines....??!!

 

But yes, good idea. I think ive only had an over abundance of water on one seed, maybe two, to where it was a pain as MJS stated.

The more customization, the better in my opinion!

I bought this game years ago from game stop and it was marketed as a full game. I'm happy to hear there is an update but it BETTER fix the crash problem. I've felt for years I wasted my money and told everyone who came in to buy the game on console about the glitch that deleted all your stuff. And I'm happy to say I've deterred a good deal. What some people here don't understand is that when you buy a game at the store and it's marketed as a full game you expect to be able to at least to the bare bones stuff. How do you survive if your base and supplies keep disappearing. That's a game that should have never made it to the shelf. I loved the concept of the game and the building but what's the point when it crashes all the time. When will this update arrive?

True but with that said all that stuff was intended. Not so sure water was intended to be so massive and it might not really be so massive it is just that they had to shrink the map size vs PC map size so it just ends up being so much on a smaller map. One thing for sure on console is you never have to worry about going thirsty as of now. Also it might not add a bunch but all the water that could be more land could generate another town or two. It may or may not change but it definitely worth asking lol.

Oh man, this is getting so old. The only ones who seem to be experiencing base resets are XBOX players. While I sympathize with the plight of XBOX players, the primary cause of the MD5 errors has been explained over and over, ad infinitum. It's an error caused by how the XBOX handles saving data. It's a hardware issue with the system itself, not a software issue. Not much the console team can do unless MICROSOFT changes how their system saves the data.

 

Seriously, how is this not sinking in at this point? Maybe we'll get lucky and the engine update will have a work around, but I have a feeling if that were possible it would have already happened.

 

And if you're telling PS4 owners about the base reset "glitch" to discourage them, then you're lying to them. It's an XBOX only issue.

While I can't comment on what causes MD5 errors as I don't have those details, I'm afraid to say though they are very rare, MD5 errors can happen on PS4 and have been reported since the last patch, though the trigger is possibly a different one.

Clare how long have you been a manager for these forums and do you like it?

 

I've been the Console Community Manager since the Console launch in June 2016 and I very much enjoy being the CM :)

Can confirm. I have had the crash once on my PS4. I know it was my own damn fault too though, as I was trying to stress the system as much as possible.

Hi survivors, already very happy to see this forum resume thread and I take this opportunity to make my suggestions:

- to be able to turn the blocks in all the directions (some are blocking what makes certain construction impossible and its frustrates me a lot personally)

- obviously painting, new zeds and new POIs would be so awesome.

- ability to write in spliscreen.

- jumped being very close to a bloc (if I'm too close to a block my character makes a small jump which can be very embarrassing when dogs want to eat my ass).

otherwise I ask myself 2 questions, why there are never any lumberjacks during the night hordes?

Is it possible to find all the buildings of navezgane on a random gen map? not necessarily on a single map, but after a dozen map and hundreds hours I have never had a cave with the doors, the lumberjack camp, the docks, and ever more.

Sorry for my mistakes or wrong sentences , I read regularly this forum (PC and consoles) but speaking poor English has hard to understand fully and reply correctly like you can see.

To all those who make this beautiful game possible and all these FREE updates as well as all moderators to give us as much information as possible THANK YOU

for all the others,we are late and we know that, so just stop watch/read what happens on PC you hurt yourself for nothing is not realy the "same" game . Personally i will stop watching videos of the alpha 17 as it will come out

can't wait to have at list the patch note :D

Well said at the end there & welcome man. Good question with the lumberjacks!!! Ive never really noticed but you're right, they're the only zombie that doesnt appear on horde nights.....wonder if your base is in the snow biome, they show up?

I know the football stadium is only in navezgane as well and im pretty sure the canyon shop & underground mines dont spawn in random gen either. Also not sure about the red mesa silo.

Hopefully the new updates can change this too.

I know A16 on PC brought most of everything in navezgane to rwg. So maybe console will get that at least most. Not sure about the skyscrapers but everything else is possible. Just have to wait and see. The red mesa silo is on console now if you visit the seed thread not sure what page it was but someone listed one that had 3 on the map. If console gets the updated town layout it will be cool but the one thing I miss when playing PC is both military bases are in towns and not dirt paths. All you really find now are the houses and the hole in the ground with house cave or whatever you wanna call it. I personally don't find the excitement in exploring as much on PC when playing A16. Oh and pretty sure the canyon is a navezgane thing so doubt it will go to rwg.

Well the unity update has caused PC to take a long time to get its next release so I'm sure console wouldn't be any exception. This kind of update isn't something that is quickly done really no update is but definitely not this one. It could possibly be fall or winter before console does see it. Always a chance before then don't get hopes up. If it hits before then be happy excited if not then be prepared to wait. As far as catching up to PC I would strongly recommend looking at console as its own game and not put the console version and PC version side by side you will come out being disappointed if you do. Plenty of threads and post of why this is here on the forums. I recommend if you can't look at PC videos here, YouTube, or twitch and see the same game but different and know deep down that some things most likely will not come to console then not to watch them. If you can watch and not let it bother and enjoy a good video then by all means watch away.

Damn, that's wild... I thought for sure the update would have been out by now since last I checked, back in February. I've recently been getting the itch to play again, so fingers crossed that when it comes time to scratch the update will be out, LoL. Oh well, on the bright side, this'll be one hell of a patch!

@Clare

 

Is there a way for you to let the console team rebalance the game to make it hard again? I do not know a thing about the influence you may have on them along telling about what is written on the forum. But there are many players who like to have the option to male the game way harder, especially by implementing tougher enemies. Besides that, the tough guys don't spawn before you hit the "end game" (> day 100, 60 min per day) during horde nights. You can hide in your nuke proof bunker and that's it unfortunately. :/

I have a list of suggestions I can send onto the team, however the difficulty design is based on the PC version and controlled via gametype when creating the save, plus personal options. I do not know if difficulty will change with the up coming patch and I can certainly add it to my list but harder enemies at later days balancing would likely come from PC rather than the console team implementing it independently.

Alright, got it. Of course it is unlikely that the console version gets a separate way of balancing. It would be enough to have some options to let there spawn more hard enemies or something like that. No need to get it rebalanced totally. Thank you for responding and setting it on the list, Clare. :)
