  1. For A17.4 we have potential performance improvements for you all. Several video options were fixed or added to allow players to e.g. disable SSR. A memory leak was identified and taken care of! The GFX command is no longer locked behind admin power and can now be used by any client. We fixed a problem that caused traders to be opened at night or closed during the day. If you find issues, please report them here on our official 17.4 Bug reporting thread. 17.4 Bug Reporting Thread Added Bloom and SS Reflections graphics options and reorderedMedium shadow distance option (closer than the old low) and reduced low to faster valuesUltra graphics preset (similar to old High) and reduced Medium and High settings a little Automove console command Changed Gfx command default permission, so all clients can use Fixed Explosion kills don’t yield experience Molotov burning kills only giving xp for first enemy Trader has problems with opening timesLauncher not supporting macOS < 10.14 SSAO graphics option, so not always on Zombies don’t damage clients after they change their appearance on P2P games It is very difficult to harvest pigs Memory leak causing client game crashes Known Issues Tool damage localization is different than actual valueTrader Jen has a deep voiceShotgun driver loses sound on 4×4 after a whileWorkstation tools do not refresh the recipe list when the tools are installedCan use torch and flaming arrows as light underwaterRWG preview tool localizationFirearms do a duplicate reload animation after reloading while zoomed (locked in zoom)Client molotovs thrown down from an edge not working as good as HostPlayer model jumps forward of the player camera when accessing an auto turret inventoryTurrets will not target self when set to do soHealing other players with RMB doesn’t workSelf medicated is not working properly.

  2. We’ve just released Alpha 17.3 B18 Stable For A17.3 we have set focus on bug fixes and RWG. We have fixed the issue which caused chunks to be reset to their original state, often affecting players’ bases. To report bugs please go here: Alpha 17.3 B18 Bug Reporting Thread RWG For RWG we worked over to remove the POI replication spawns (radio tower cities), reworked the roads so be more vehicle-friendly, overworked the world layout and adjusted the placement of POIs and cities.This framework we are backporting to 17.3 is part of a larger Alpha 18 plan to make it awesome. Added gfx console command (key changes shader keywords, pp changes postprocessing, type gfx for help).God casting to debug mode (shift+Q key moves you to where you are looking or 100m if nothing hit)Giveselfxp should not be modified by XP multiplier (added help command)Explosions wake sleepers even if no damage Changed Quests now will try to find closer POIs.One repair kit will be sufficient to fully repair one item.

  3. We’ve just released Alpha 17.2 B27 with many fixes, changes and some great new game options. Blood Moon Frequency This option allows the player to set a minimum amount of days for when the blood moon hordes appear. In the menu the player can disable them, have them daily, every 3 days, default weekly, once every two weeks and once every 30 days. Blood Moon Range Here the player can change how many days can the actual blood moon day randomly deviate from the frequency setting. Setting this to 0 makes blood moons happen exactly each Nth day as specified in BloodMoonFrequency Landclaimcount We added a property to the serverconfig.xml that allows server owners to change the maximum amount landclaims per player. XP Multiplier Players can increase or decrease the overall experience gained. To suit the XP speed for the length of game they desire. Adjustable Block Damages Players: Players can decrease or increase their damage dealt to blocks AI: The damage dealt to blocks by normal AI Blood Moon AI: The damage dealt to blocks exclusively by AI during blood moon horde time For serverowners: Added: serverconfig property “UserDataFolder” to specify where all generated data on the server is stored, including generated RWG worlds Added: new properties “XPMultiplier”, “BlockDamagePlayer”, “BlockDamageAI”, “BlockDamageAIBM” Removed: old properties “BlockDurabilityModifier”, “ZombiesRun” Changed: TerminalWindowEnabled default is set to true Please be sure you are using these properties in your serverconfig.xml: <property name=”BloodMoonFrequency” value=”7″ /> <!– What frequency (in days) should a blood moon take place –> <property name=”BloodMoonRange” value=”0″ /> <!– How many days can the actual blood moon day randomly deviate from the above setting. Setting this to 0 makes blood moons happen exactly each Nth day as specified in BloodMoonFrequency –> <property name=”BloodMoonWarning” value=”8″ /> <!– The Hour number that the red day number begins on a blood moon day. Setting this to -1 makes the red never show. –> <property name=”LandClaimCount” value=”1″/> <!– Maximum allowed land claims per player. –> <property name=”BlockDamagePlayer” value=”25″ /> <!– How much damage do players to blocks (percentage in whole numbers) –> <property name=”BlockDamageAI” value=”100″ /> <!– How much damage do AIs to blocks (percentage in whole numbers) –> <property name=”BlockDamageAIBM” value=”100″ /> <!– How much damage do AIs during blood moons to blocks (percentage in whole numbers) –> <property name=”XPMultiplier” value=”100″ /> <!– XP gain multiplier (percentage in whole numbers) –> Added Option to disable texture streaming Sleeper check if chunk ready for spawning Launcher cleanup function for generated RWG worlds Hits between animals of the same exact class are ignored Log message for how much XP you got from different sources during your last level AI FindDestroyPos far to close mode and randomized starting edge check AI Destroy Area can randomly trigger when close but has a long path (higher % with lower intelligence) AI Destroy Area will try far mode if normal unreachable AI Destroy Area states, so seek time and attack time are separate Landclaims now have a radial menu access to either show bounds to help building or remove them, if you dont want to destroy them by hand Logging when player makes levels Clamping to huge xp gains and changed giveselfxp to allow huge numbers A “Blood Moon Warning” option.

  5. Hey Survivalist, We’ve just released Alpha 17.1 Experimental B8 and could really use your help finding the last remaining big issues. To improve stamina players now start with 150 food which is now shown in the hud and menu to communicate you can overeat and not waste food. When players stamina is between 100 and 150, there are no detrimental stamina effects. Strength requirements for the Sexual Tyrannosaurus perk have been lowered and we have made the description clear that it does reduce mining stamina costs as well as melee costs. We moved it from the combat perk section to a new section called general strength perks. We’ve reduced the stamina cost of all tools. We’ve also reduced stone tool stamina penalties. Water now goes to 150%, and until the water debuff comes on screen at 75% water, you will experience no stamina regeneration penalties. For builders, we have bolstered XP for harvesting and mining substantially allowing for support roles to keep up with combat and scavenger roles. A17.1 b1-b8 Added Entityclasses AIPathCostScale (min/max) and set a variety of values for different AI entities Sleeper 20% bonus to AIPathCostScale Vehicle manager saves when vehicles are added or removed Added Cigars to trader wares Added old cash to laundry and nightstands AI will do destroy area 60% on a fall after unreachable side path Traders now sell glue Changed Optimized catwalk rail metal corner, catwalk rail single, catwalk wedge rail, chair, coffee table Separated pathing distance cost from break/jump cost and added per path scaling to allow path variations Increased trader rewards AI JumpMaxDistance to a random range, set zombie ranges and made heavier zombies jump shorter Updated several buff descriptions and journal entries to reflect changes Added a beaker to medical quest loot Return of the ghosted block preview from A16 Added acid to lab equipment loot Water and food to show the value of current water and food plus the consumed water and food amounts to be applied Adjusted max water amounts in progression to reflect the food amounts Updated chrysanthemum seed icon. Show the water/food as actual value instead of percent. Increased dog and wolf health Death penalty cannot stack on repeated deaths Increased block upgrade speed of nail gun and claw hammer A wood pole can be crafted without the table saw Updated vehicleWheels icon. Increased amount of old cash found in containers and zombie loot. ModMeleeStructuralBrace can be installed on bows and has fewer stacking issues Increased size of snake colliders Increased harvesting / upgrade XP Increased AI range to attempt a gap jump General Strength Perks have their own category. Perks concerning harvesting, looting or carrying things require lower attribute scores to unlock Increased the amount of food you can overeat to 50. Increased stack count of buff magazines Increased stack number of cash Allowed 45° rotations on wood/iron bars Added support for lumberjacks. Wood now sells for a reasonable amount at traders Player sellback rate improved so selling items to traders is more profitable Increased drop % of armor mods in loot Vehicles can be assembled from parts without a perk Glue requires only 1 bone now instead of 2. Reduced price of glue it was more expensive than duct tape Terrain in prefabs is now integrated into the height map and saved into a temporary file dtm_processed.raw on server side Optimized the way imposter prefab are calculated (less network traffic) Fixed Stat Current life does not reset upon death. Craft timers not being loaded from saved data correctly AI climb flag not set when temp move LCB icon is still shown when LCB has been destroyed by another player. Bedroll compass/map icon was still showing when destroyed by another player when out of chunk. Crafting timer doesn’t advance properly when the chunk is unloaded Fuel burn timer showing huge negative value in MP Silencer does not actually silence all weapons Tuned water message closer to actual in game effect Increased quality of items for quest rewards Vehicle out of world check using different positions for chunk and terrain tests, so vehicles could get killed and removed Kill Zombies prefer to not path glass blocks Player backpack can be pushed under the world Dupe anything in a container. If a server is restarted shortly after placing a vehicle, the vehicle will disappear Fixed mismatched reinforced padding icon. Any block that can be picked up, can be picked up in a lcb protected area. Relogging on activate marker. Quests sometimes require moving to corner/center of POI to show Rally Marker. Wellness achievement updated to use fortitude Relogging on fresh quest will break trigger area. Tier5 does not give you a complete quest after requirements are met. When blocks are placed where sleepers would spawn, they can turn yellow Replaced cntmrandomloothelper in house_old_mansard with random store crate Allow harvested decor plants to be scrapped Weapon bags do not fall when POI’s fall Clothing change can cause major lag spike/fps drop Updated mining journal entry Tree duping issue when hit by vehicles in LCB Holding F is not mentioned on relevant item descriptions Open\Close toggle issues with some hatches. Strong zombies dropped less cash than weak zombies Item is lost if left on the mouse when closing a container. Toolbelt items being stuck after use. Bleeding buff carries over to respawn Sidewalk terrain will not allow placing blocks on it Self medicated perk magazine is still in game Command smoothworldall only working for 4k maps Corrected more burn times XBOX controller has not designated button/switch for making air vehicle point down (added controller action 2 to hop) Fixed distant water not being flat as a client Wrong stats displayed on some armor mods Grandpa’s Awesome Sauce is too awesome Water is not wet enough. Swimming / rain will now cool you down.

  6. Hey Folks, We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. The Fun Pimps are taking a long-needed development break through New Year’s. But not to worry we will be back to work after New Years and onto patching Alpha 17. Alpha 17 is not perfect by any means but a big step forward towards the vision we have had for the game for a long time. We have heard some valid concerns of the community and will be making needed adjustments to the game in the coming weeks along with bug fixes, optimizations and balance. We are gathering data on a case by case basis, balancing and addressing the true problem areas most of which so far center around optimizations, stamina, balancing XP for all play styles, land claims, increasing zombie loot drop chance, zombie block damage, skill/perk balance and gating and random world gen improvements.

  8. Hey Survivors, We just release Alpha 17 Experimental. Check our forums for more information on opting in and helping us find the biggest issues. Forum Post Hard to believe but it’s been nearly a year and a half since our last major update. That said, this has been our longest and largest update so far. On top of that, it’s the biggest content drop we’ve ever done. In the future, you can expect shorter 3 month build cycles as we have done all the heavy framework changes we wanted to do in this build. Please remember that this is an experimental build, so it is not without issues. It still needs bug fixing, balancing and optimizations. More optimizations are coming, so if you are not getting the performance you did in previous builds, we highly recommend you lower your resolution and view distance as the first steps. Our team has commented how much better the game looks than previous builds even with a lower resolution and view distance as the HD textures, PBR and distance trees have really changed the game. If you’re still not seeing enough performance, lower reflection quality and tree quality. Problems aside, Alpha 17 is great and in the spirit of getting Alpha 17 it into the hands of our community, we opted to get it out sooner to help us in our goal of a stable version out before the end of the year. We are extremely excited and proud of this build which was a huge team effort and we believe it truly is a new game. Now without further ado, here is a complete list of Alpha 17 release notes! Alpha 17 Official Early Release Notes (B197) Art, Lighting, PBR Rendering and Texture Streaming First off, we’ve updated Unity Engine versions to take advantage of physically based rendering features, as well as greatly improved scene lighting. We have also integrated Unity’s new Texture Streaming which lowers texture ram and provides support for crisp HD textures. This streaming allows us to add nearly unlimited art content in future updates. Nearly all objects and surfaces in game have been improved to support the new lighting features. Ambient lighting improved to show more natural scene lighting. Many surfaces now light with natural subtle reflections to improve overall scene appearance. Party System Join up with friends to form a Party which allows you to play together much easier. Do this by simply inviting a player to your Party from the players menu tab. The system offers these benefits: Share team XP with nearby party members of Zombie Kills Share Quests. Track Party members location, and health. Quest System We’ve added a brand-new quest system. The player receives quests by simply talking to a Trader and looking at his offered jobs and accepting a quest. The player can progress through the ranks of 6 quest difficulty tiers receiving better reward choices for each quest and for graduating each Tier. With it comes a new quest reward system that gives the player XP, money and a growing choice of multiple rewards that can be modified by perking up into the new Daring Adventurer Perk. The system supports many new and old quest types including: Clear Sleeper Fetch Hidden Cache Buried Supplies Clear and Fetch Clear and Hidden Cache Treasure (Old) Challenge (Updated) Navezgane Improvements The Navezgane world grew from 16 square kilometers to 36 square kilometers in size and the terrain and the height have been given an overhaul. The height is much more extreme and natural looking. You will not recognize the world. Locations We’ve re-imagined dozens of original A16 locations with a complete art and gameplay overhaul converting them to beautiful and quest-able dungeon experiences. We have also created many brand-new locations. These locations are all setup to support a variety of quests of 6 Tier difficulties. All locations are working in Navezgane and Random Gen worlds. Over 125 new locations and counting. Some of these include: Shamway Factory Shotgun Messiah Factory Navezagne Hospital Perishton Courthouse 4 Skyscrapers in Departure New giant Perishton Church 4 new Perishton Business Strips 9 Old Businesses 8 Abandoned houses (Non Quest) Apartment Building 65 Houses of varying size and challenge 8 Ramshackle Survivor Sites Water Works Utility Company 3 Army Camps 3 Barns Bus Stop (Non Quest) Cemetery Road Culvert (Navezgane Olny) 7 New Garages Red Mesa Installation Vacant Lot Gas Station Docks Vehicles We’ve completely rewritten and overhauled the vehicle system with from the ground up making many new additions, improvements and changes include: New real physics that make the vehicles feel like a real driving game New Bicycle vehicle that consumes stamina when you pedal it New Badass Motorbike vehicle New 4×4 vehicle that allows a friend to ride shotgun as a passenger New Gyrocopter vehicle allows players to own the skies Updated minibike that uses the new systems New vehicle placement system New vehicle camera system with turning to where you are looking New vehicle controls for hop and turbo. Vehicle control binds were added in a menu/controls/vehicle section New vehicle sound system that handles gears and loops better New ragdoll system so you can drive over zombies and they will realistically ragdoll react to vehicle impacts and go flying in the air taking damage. Surprisingly they can get up again if you didn’t kill them. Improved vehicle storage so it’s on its own radial button with different storage amounts per vehicle New Vehicle mod support. The system will allow players to install vehicle mods that can make vehicles perform better, have more storage and more. Note: Mod items are coming in a future version. This replaces changing of vehicle parts AI and Pathing We’ve completely overhauled the enemy AI and pathing, writing an entirely new A-Star pathing system that rocks. Enemies can do many things in this system including: New path calculations based on distance vs destroying blocks and uses the block health including block downgrades New movement, turning and target estimation New obstacle detection to better path around or destroy New jumping across gaps and up onto ledges (Spiders have a long jump) Improved jumping onto obstacles Updated jump animations with three separate parts Improved handling of stairs Improved ladder climbing, including skipping rungs New digging down if their destination is below them and they can’t walk to it New destroy area mode, when players can’t be reached New group damage bonus, when AI are close together New Vulture AI including circling, attacking the weak and re-positioning in combat. New Radiated Vulture Improved sleeper spawning and tracking. New types of sleepers All sleeper spawns are now game-staged to up the challenge as you level up or party in a group Animals We’ve added a couple new animal models including: New Stag New Doe Modded Item System We’ve added a new mod system that allows users to install mods into weapons, firearms, clothing, armor and vehicles. Basically, anything with a quality can be modded. We removed the old tedious weapon part system to make room for this. There are already over sixty mods to augment your items of quality. Here are a few item mod examples: Attachments like a weapon, scopes, flashlight, silencer or duck bill Internal modifications like a trigger group for burst fire, increased damage, increased fire rate, improved accuracy, full auto, and increased magazine size Adding barbed wire or a different grip to a club for improved damage or swing speed Mods to make tools more efficient Armor mods to help with encumbrance, heat, cold and stealth Mods to dye items to unify your clans look. New Items / Recipes We’ve added dozens of new items, recipes, modes too many to list check out the creative menu for more information or play the game. New foods, drinks and drugs to craft and use. Magazines to grant you temporary attribute and perk levels. Item mods, of course. Schematics to craft mods yourself. Dyes to personalize your weapons and armor. Table saw for crafting furniture and advanced wooden blocks. Grandpas Moonshine (Increases Melee damage for limited time) Grandpas Learnin’ Elixir (Gives you 20% XP boost for limited time) Grandpas Awesome Sauce (Increases your barter ability for limited time) Recog Drug (Increases perception for increased ranged weapon damage) Steroids (Increases strength attribute and removes all encumbrance penalties for a limited time) Mega Crush now boosts your running speed to extreme levels for a limited time. Physical Attribute Skill System and Progression We gutted and rebuilt the skills system from the ground up to be more of a true skill tree. This re-configuration of the skills system centers around five main physical attributes of the player: Perception (PER), Strength (STR), Fortitude (FRT), Agility (AGI) and Intellect (INT),. Each of these attributes are tied to the player’s physical body, and can be affected by equipment, injuries, and illnesses, creating boons and banes to the player’s skills and abilities. Under this system, all skills and perks are governed by one of the five attributes, grouping the skills and perks into general areas of play, and allowing for players to more easily create “class” archetypes by focusing on one or more attributes. The new system has endless possibilities. For example the player might get a concussion which lowers his intellect attribute which has the side affect of not being bale to craft certain items until the concussion heals. Perks grant you specific abilities and higher perk levels require certain attribute levels. Attributes have 10 levels and most perks have 5 levels. The governing attributes and child perks are as follows: Perception Attribute (Perception is the measure of your sensory awareness. Increasing Perception raises damage with firearms) Marksmanship Perks Gunslinger Shotgun Messiah Automatic Weapons Dead Eye Archery Explosive Weapons Boom! Headshot! Run and Gun Scavenging Perks Lucky Looter Salvage Operations Strength Attribute Melee Combat Perks Wrecking Ball Sexual Tyrannosaurus Flurry of Blows Deep Cuts Stay Down Heavy Metal Skull Crusher Construction Perks Miner 69’er Pack Mule Mother Lode Fortitude Attribute Survival Perks Heavy Armor The Huntsman Intrinsic Immunity Well Insulated Living Off The Land Pain Tolerance Recovery Perks Healing Factor Fully Hydrated Slow Metabolism Self Medicated Agility Attribute Athletic Perks Rule 1: Cardio Light Armor Charging Bull Parkour Olympic Swimmer Stealth Perks Ninja Movement Hidden Strike From The Shadows Intellect Attribute Influence Perks Better Barter The Daring Adventurer Charismatic Nature Craftsmanship Perks Hammer and Forge Grease Monkey Advanced Engineering Yeah, Science Physician Master Chef Integrated Survival System ISS We’ve thrown out the old wellness system and added the new Integrated Survival System. The core concept behind the ISS is the introduction of “hard damage” to the player’s Max Health and Max Stamina caps. This “hard damage” represents the cumulative wear and tear to the player’s physical condition through repeated injury or exertion, and is represented by reducing/capping the maximum portion of the health and stamina bar that is recoverable through normal means. Mechanically, the system requires the introduction of two new player stats: “Max Health” and “Max Stamina”. Here’s the breakdown: Health Your current health is displayed in red and max health is grey. Damaged health or your max health cap is displayed in black. Eat food or use medicine to restore health. Use bandages or med kits to restore your max health cap. Stamina Your current stamina is displayed in blue and max stamina is grey. Damaged stamina or your max stamina cap is displayed in black. Drink water to restore stamina. Eat food to restore your max stamina cap. Recovery Rate Health and stamina recovery rate is determined by your water level found in the character stats menu. Buff Notification and new Buff System Properly notifying the player of active status changes and their effects is a current problem with our system. The popout notifications are uniform, regardless of severity, and thus don’t draw enough attention to effects that are critical to the player. We aim to correct this with a new notification system design.Under this new system, each status effect is assigned a severity: Standard (White), Elevated (Amber), and Severe (Red). The notifications for each status effect are color coded accordingly and have additional behaviors based on the severity. The entire legacy buff system has been rewritten for maximum flexibility and transparency between other systems. System designers can add buffs to anything in the game whether hidden or not allowing a multitude of buffs and debuffs. Some new or changed Buffs include: Overhauled all legacy buffs to work with the new system. Near Death Trauma (Lowers your master attributes for a day if you die) Encumbrance and the handling of falling damage are driven by buffs Buffs can play sounds and sound loops, activate screen effects or particle effects at any time. Many new improvements, additions and buff changes too many to list. Backpack Space and Encumbrance System We’ve increased the backpack space from 32 slots in previous builds to a generous 45 slots in alpha 16. Although we’ve given the player more back space we have added a new encumbrance system and here is how it works: The player starts a new game with the bottom 3 rows of his back pack darkened with the encumbrance icon These encumbered slots can be used but with a movement penalty. When no encumbered slots are used there is no movement penalty. The player can purchase 5 levels of the new Pack Mule perk to remove the encumbrance icons form the pack pack and the penalties The can get buffs that cause slots to become encumbered from sickness and other things Reworked Weather Survival We have simplified and reworked weather survival system and here are a few key points: Clothing can have both a hypo-thermal level for cold protection and hyper-thermal level for heat protection no more dressing and undressing constantly. Armor can be modified to add further hypo and hyper thermal protection. The player starts new games with a elemental protection that lasts for the first 5 levels. Various items and blocks can change your protection values including campfires, forges and held torches. New Loot Containers We’ve done a lot of work to improve, balance and make a more guided loot experience. Here are a few of the notable changes: Many common loot containers visibly have a “looted” state and the ones that are lootable are rarely empty. We’ve added a lot of hidden loot to the POIS in hard to find places. Added: Dozens of new loot containers too many to list. Added: Store crates with logos so you can tell its good loot not just random construction loot. Added: Large and Small Gun Bags. Added: Reinforced chests and super chests. Random Gen Random gen has gotten some love and been sped up with these new features: Common file formatting with Navezgane which allows distant trees, pre-generated height for much better performance. New improved Random Gen Previewer located in the main menu/editing tools/random gen previewer. The previewer now has a legend key and the user can set the size of the generated map. New maps can be generated from new game, dedi server and from the previewer. Entire map is generated using tiles(sockets) which allows for future features to be added. Generated maps are now able to be continued even if there are patches to random gen. Terrain generator now has the ability to read in heightmap images for generation. This will be improved in a18. Note: Generating 16k maps is currently disabled until we have time to speed it up. Other World Generation and Biome Changes Biomes have undergone some changes, too including: The plains biome has been removed. Distant decorations (trees) complement the distant terrain for a more realistic scenery Boulders spawn in places where ore veins come close to the surface. Clay does not litter biomes with small sub biomes but is found in all “dirt” topsoil. Item Compare System We added a new system that allows the player to compare items of quality of the same type in loot containers, inventory or worn to be compared. Here is how it works: Click on and inspect item 1 and then mouse over item 2 to see how much better or worse item is than item 1. Positive Stats will appear in Green with a + before the number. Negative Stats will appear in Red with a – before the number. Green is Good and Red is Bad. Worn clothing works the same way but takes into account your worn items. You can simple inspect a similar item in your inventory like an item you wearing and see the difference. UI Changes and Improvements We’ve done a ton of work to the main menu with many improvements including: Main Menu – Overhauled basic visual style. Main Menu – Organized many screens making the information accessible by Tabs and Gamepads. Main Menu – Added Gamepad controller bind diagrams. Main Menu – Added an Editing Tools section where players can create POIS or Preview Random Gen worlds. Main Menu – Streamlined the server browser to make it easier to find servers and your friends. Main Menu – Made it possible to start a solo game and continue it in multiplayer with your friends. Tools Menu – Using the Playtest button, you can launch a single POI as a playable map and immediately see the result of any changes. These in-game UI changes have also been done: We’ve overhauled the Item stats window with a new description and stats tab consolidating the more useful stats. The character screen now has a new primary stats tab and a secondary stats tab to see even more information about your character and the buffs that are affecting him. New Journal tips will be marked with an orange icon and flash when you unread journal tips. The skills menu has been redone with major attributes, perk categories and nested perks underneath. It feels much more like a skill tree. New Creative Block Shapes Over 700 new blocks, shapes and decorations have been added. Don’t make us list them all! Land Claim Improvements You can only have one active land claim block but the claim area is much larger. Claim blocks are cheap to craft and repair. Placing another will instantly deactivate but not destroy your previous one. The claim area prevents zombie respawn. New Stealth System We’ve torn up our old stealth system and created Stealth 2.0. The new system is more player data focused and has less data to manage. Much like horde heat maps players have their own heat signature value that goes up and down over time represented in a new UI stat at the bottom left, colored yellow with an eyeball icon. This stealth UI stat bar is only shown when the player crouches. The fullness of the bar represents how un-stealthy the player currently is accumulating the player’s noise, lighting, movement and posture into one stat. The fuller the yellow bar the more un-stealthy the player is being. Things that affect a players heat signature +/- Player Light Level (Combination of world lighting and player equipped lights that are on) Player Stance (Crouching improves your stealth) Player Motion Level (Moving raises a player’s heat level stillness lowers it) Player Noise Level (Noises raise a players heat level being quiet lowers it. Noises have decay so pounding repeatedly or repeatedly opening loot containers can build up the noise level) Distance from an enemy determines how likely they are to see or hear you New Weapons and Weapon Improvements Weapons have a lot more individual stats. Aiming a weapon will cost some stamina. Reloading a gun or drawing a bow will somewhat slow down your movement speed. Guns no longer auto-reload when the last bullet is fired. World Precision System We’ve re-engineered the center of world precision system so the player will not experience shaky animations and other precision issues when you are far out from the center of the world. Foliage Improvements We’ve added a system that automatically places the correct foliage on POI landscape depending on the biome it spawns in. We added a brand-new distant tree rendering system that renders imposter trees outside of the chunk distance. This is an amazing change that makes the world look vast. We’ve also redone all the pine trees and added a brand new live oak type which can be seen in the desert. We’ve added tree helpers which make POIS spawn and use the native trees of the biome they are in. This change makes the POIs always look grounded to their environment. Animation Improvements We’ve updated all third person player animations with motion capture. We’ve updated/tuned melee animations. We’ve added custom animations for all heavy melees. We’ve updated/tuned animal animations. We’ve added blending from ragdolls back into prone and standing animations Kickstarter Vain Survivalist Fulfilled A big thanks to the vain survivalist below who now have the portraits in the game Kickstarter backer Ben Brett Kickstarter backer Lorien Green Kickstarter backer Derek Med Servers administration (serverconfig.xml etc) Network: RakNet was removed by Unity, UNET removed due to its instability. Currently we use LiteNetLib and SteamNetworking – the latter has had a bunch of stability fixes. Ports currently in use: ServerPort+0/UDP and ServerPort+1/UDP for Steam ServerPort+2/UDP for LiteNetLib ServerPort+0/TCP for Server information Thanks to the port switch Steam connect links on websites and adding servers in Steam’s own serverbrowser now use the ServerPort instead of ServerPort+1 Added a Terminal window if running the dedicated server on Windows which can be enabled by a new serverconfig.xml setting New setting “ServerVisibility” to allow more fine grained control of the visibility of the server in the server browser Setting a value to “ServerLoginConfirmationText” makes users see a window during login that they have to confirm to join The Telnet command interface now allows defining limits for failed logins from a single IP Servers create a copy of the save’s main.ttw automatically and try to revert to the backup if loading the main file fails Passwords passed to the server on the command line are no longer shown in the log Config options passed to the server on the command line no longer have to be case sensitive Changes to serverconfig.xml: Replaced “ServerIsPublic” with “ServerVisibility” Added “WorldGenSeed” and “WorldGenSize” to be used with “GameWorld” = “RWG” Changed “GameMode” to default to the currently only mode “GameModeSurvival” Added “TelnetFailedLoginLimit” and “TelnetFailedLoginsBlocktime” Added “TerminalWindowEnabled” Added “PartySharedKillRange” Added “ServerLoginConfirmationText” Console commands Added “xui” – List/open/close XUi windows Added “debugshot” – Create a screenshot with additional info Added “exportcurrentconfigs” – Export the all XMLs as they are currently used (i.e. with mod patches applied) Added “exportprefab” – Export a given area of the world as a prefab Added “getoptions” – Get all game options (as opposed to getgameprefs which returns server options) Added “placeobserver” – Place a chunk observer on the map to make a certain (area) of chunks loaded Added “prefabupdater” – Used to update old prefabs to the new format. See below in the modding section Changed “teleport” and “teleportplayer” – Added variants that allow specifying the direction the player is supposed to look after the teleport Modding support Log: Chat message logging includes SteamID and EntityID of sender as well as the target group Mod DLLs: Server code mods no longer use inheritance for events but rather register manually to events in the ModEvents class. The only required class from now on is inheriting IModAPI and with an parameterless InitMod method that can be used to register events etc. Allow multiple DLLs in a single mod so that third party libraries can easily be included (still only one is allowed to contain an IModAPI descendant) Renamed old event ChatMessage to GameMessage (no longer handles actual chat messages) and added a new event ChatMessage which handles global chat messages PlayerLogin event signature changed to be able to disallow the client from connecting (return false and optionally specify a message string for the reason) ConnectionManager methods to get ClientInfos were moved to ClientInfoCollection (e.g. ConnectionManager.GetClientInfoForEntityId -> ConnectionManager.Clients.ForEntityId) Generic improvements: XUi texture views no longer leak memory when using a texture with a @file or @http texture Entity spawn menu uses a pageable list to accomodate large numbers of custom entities Performance in recipe searches was fixed to allow large numbers of recipes XML features: Added support for config mods: Create a “config” folder in your mod folder and place XMLs with the name of the vanilla XML you want to patch. Uses XPath based patches similar to what SDX used. A tutorial by Sphereii can be found on the forum: https://7daystodie.com/forums/showthread.php?93816-XPath-Modding-Explanation-Thread Added support for “CustomIconTint” in blocks.xml Added support for “@modfolder:” prefixes in mod config XMLs – currently used for XUi texture views and everything that loads files from AssetBundles Added support for files from AssetBundles like entity meshes Added XUi controls support for “Defined(<identifier>)” function to test if a parameter was defined when using a control items and blocks no longer have IDs in the XML Added a XUi window template (“serverinfowindow”) that can be filled by a server admin to show server information like rules in ESC menu Level/POI Editor We’ve have improved our internal level editor tool and are shipping in with this build. Users can access it in from the main menu/editor tools/level editor. With it you can do many things including: Browse the POIS that TFP has made. Create a new POI from scratch from the ground up Copy and Paste sections of POIS between levels Multiplayer level edit (Host can save) Add/Edit lights to have custom intensity, color, dynamic pulsing, fluctuating, blinking and more. Playtest a POI by itself in a test world Note: There is a help section in the tools UI if you hit escape. Nearly all functions come from the right menu panels 4 categories and hot keys. The tool is pretty robust but as of now we don’t have any online tutorial or videos they will come in the near future. Until then interested folks should go to our forums modding section and ask questions. If you want to be able to save work you must launch it without EAC. Currently saved files are saved here: steamapps\common\7 Days To Die\Data\Prefabs. You can add you custom POIs to a random gen world by editing and adding a text entry in the rwgmixer.xml file located here: Steam\steamapps\common\7 Days To Die\Data\Config Prefabs: Added an Export Prefab dialog (requires active selection box with DebugMenu enabled) A16 prefabs can be converted to A17 ones with the “prefabupdater” console command. See instructions in blocksA16PrefabConversion.xml Other: Custom worlds can now be added by creating a heightmap etc. Just look at Navezgane for a full example. You don’t have to create a dtm.raw, this is automatically created from dtm.tga when not present. We switched to Unity 2018.2.0f2. Make sure to adopt your custom assets Added More robust settings for if the world generator should auto export data Armor now makes noise. heavy armor is louder than light armor Stats page to armor mods Power attack block damage to item stats Hunting knife power attack 50% chance to dismember Grunt sounds to shiv and knife power attacks Added grunt sounds to pickaxe power attacks Added the continued living motivation buff Food, health, water and stamina stats to all food and drinks Entities drop loot containers based on lootdropprob and lootdropentityclass Added a temperature protection buff for when you first spawn into the game. 24 hours. make it count.

  10. Many are speculating as to the future of 7 Days to Die on consoles and The Fun Pimps wanted to give the community an update. The news of Telltale’s demise and insolvency was both a saddening and shocking event. With no warning, we learned the news the same day as the gaming public. Upon hearing the news, The Fun Pimps immediately terminated its license agreement with Telltale, which only allowed publishing rights on the console ports of the 7 Days to Die game. The termination also severed Telltale’s rights to any future updates or sequels of the 7 Days to Die franchise. In the weeks following, we’ve been working in good faith with the remaining management at Telltale to regain control over the console versions and allow us to provide support and updates on those platforms. So far, these efforts have failed. Like you, we are incredibly frustrated by what has happened. We are pursuing all options to regain our rights, including legal remedies. Despite the damage that Telltale’s actions have inflicted upon our company and upon our console community, we wanted to let you know that The Fun Pimps are supremely committed to our fans and will continue to support 7 Days to Die game on the PC, as well as continuing efforts to aid console players in the future. The Fun Pimps will keep you updated as more information becomes available. View more from 7daystodie.com
