InSanity Posted December 12, 2018 Share Posted December 12, 2018 Just got a hold of the new build and have already put almost 3 hours into, so haven't got too far but I just wanted to give some initial feedback on the build as a whole. XP rebalancing-I enjoy killing Zs as much as the next guy but I also don't mind farming and love building cool bases and so far it definitely seems a bit more balanced but I'll find out just how much once I really get into farming and building a little later on. Melee retuning/Ranged retuning-I've been a big proponent of making firearms actually useful as in the last build I could easily get away with using 90% melee and then a little bow/panic shotgun or something but so far I am absolutely loving using the bow as you can definitely tell the difference when killing Zs(especially sleepers with the stealth attack perk) and animals(which seem to spawn far more frequently i've noticed?). I also agree with the changes to the power attack and primary attack as I've had no problem killing Zs without the power attack since it's been buffed as it allows for much longer fights if necessary I've yet to do too much mining/farming but it doesn't seem as if it's changed too much either way so far. Trader/Economy Rebalancing-The fact that firearms are now not so useless and now do not sell for very much is something I'm okay with and I really enjoy that now both the trader and vending machines sell all the different foods and drinks and I love that the trader sells mods and general building materials and such. The rework to the economy seems to take care of exploiting the trader for large amount of dukes while also adding new dynamics to him with the mods and materials so I enjoy that for sure. New Quests/Buildings-Already had a fetch quest in one of the new cabins and even though it's just for the sake of variety I really did like it and it's a simple change but overall I think it adds a little something extra which is nice. Leveling/Gamestage-As I've mostly been looting and killing Zs and the xp for that has been reduced I have been leveling a little slower but overall feels pretty similar to before and I can definitely say the game (so far) seems better as far as special Zs, ferals, and gamestage as before I could get ferals in a quest/normal poi on day 2 and it just went up from there but I'm already a few days in and I've seen far less of things of that nature so I'm enjoying that much more than previous builds. Performace?-Didn't see too much in the patch notes in way of performance updates but at least to me it seems a decent bit better as I"m running on 1600x900 res on all high settings with everything turned on getting 90-100+ fps outside and 70-80 fps inside. Just wanted to give my 2 cents and would like to hear from the rest of you once you play a little and get a feel for the new changes but overall seems great to me so good job and thanks for the hard work TFP.
