There's a lot competing for my attention (I'm looking at you RDR2) but if I'm free, I'll give it a go.

I’ve set the server up, just need them to release the bloody thing and for the server company to let me know how to actually get it on there. They don’t even know yet 😂

Good man, make sure everyone knows the server details and hopefully we can have some fun this time round. I should have time to commit to this next week.

The server is installed with Alpha 17, just need to double check everything is working then we should be good to go. I think tonight is the night most of us are going to try and jump on, not sure of a time yet, maybe around 6ish.

 

If anyone wants to join us then give me a shout and i'll PM you over the details. @Shucker

 

Happy surviving!

I'll be on discord from around 5ish, anyone is welcome to join. We'll be going through the settings of the server and making sure everything is how we want it.

 

Be prepared, this will be the hardest server we've done so far!

Sounds good. Think I still have the settings. Haven't the slightest clue how to play anymore. :)
Probably on after 7 sometime.

Patch is great so far.

 

Hey Survivors,

We just release Alpha 17 Experimental. Check our forums for more information on opting in and helping us find the biggest issues.

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.

So there’s a few things we’ve learnt so far.

 

1. I shouldn’t be in charge of server settings 

2. 5 doesn’t equal 4

3. You can’t have a world called

Random Gen

D. I’m awful at making lists

Fixed that for you ;) :lol: 

 

It was crazy difficult but it was fun, survival games are supposed to be a challenge.  Some of the new mechanics take some getting used to but I think once we are it shouldn’t be too bad playing on max difficulty.  Though running during the day may have been a little excessive.

😂 cheers, was attempting to write that whilst walking to work.

 

Yeah the running during the day really was excessive. Like you say, when we’ve got the hang of it i’ll turn it back up as the challenge was fun.....up to a point.

 

I should be on just after 4ish today 👍

I don't think I want to go back in there. You're better off feeding off of my 54% max HP corpse.

I've got the game downloaded, but I didn't realize I'd need to select to opt into the Alpha 17.  I thought it would update straight to that since I first downloaded after its release.  OH well.  I followed Tronic's instructions (thanks dude) and now I'm updating to Alpha 17.  

 

I've got family here tonight and tomorrow night, but I'm hoping to dig into it over the weekend!  Hope to see you all around. 

 

I've never played this game at all, so I'm a complete noob.  I'll need some help :)

Server is live.

Same server details but PM one of us for it if you need.

Don't forget this is the test version, so you need to go to game properties in steam, select beta tab, opt into beta and select 'experimental' from list.

I should be on here later tonight.

Can someone give me a quick breakdown on any etiquette or rules with this server? I have zero idea what I'm doing coming into this.

At present, we're just trying to survive. It's a bit harder than previous incarnations. No rules needed as such, everyone depends on everyone else or death comes easily :)

 

Important things to note:

 

Zombies walk during the day.... but run at night time....and they are attracted to light, movement and noise.

 

When you spawn in, press tab and select the option to send a friend invite so the other players show up on the map. Once friended, you can't be team killed. Though technically I have managed to kill @Greboth by accident. With TNT. 

 

Do the challenges the game starts you with, this gives skill points, and they're essential.

 

I may be back on a bit later and I'll look out for you. You may need to install Discord if you don't have it...

Well, I only got to play a little bit.  It was a much busier weekend than I anticipated.  

 

First thoughts:  The graphics kinda suck, lol.  The atmosphere is cool.  It's hard as fuck.  I like crafting so far.  It's hard as fuck.  

 

I died before the first nightfall.  Looking forward to giving it some real play time and getting on with you all.
