    In new horde night video, I notice that Character is at health of 168, similarly for stamina. I think with perk it increase in fold of 10, so it should be 170 or 160 .. did I miss an update about health?

    also, he never get infected?
    You gain a point every level now, no fortitude or agility requirement.

    I think I somehow grabbed my ♥♥♥♥ty m60 or something nerfed the damage on it, it was like 80 instead of 119.

    Infection is reworked again. Here are the release notes:

    +Changed: Brand new infection system. Infection is easier to contract when you have low health than high health. 1% is barely infected, at 100% infection you die. Stage 1 lasts one (real time) hour and up to 14% and has no side effects. Stage 2 lasts 3 hours (up to 57%) and is-25% stamina recovery. Stage 3 lasts 3 hours and is -35% stamina recovey and -1 to all attributes. You die if it reaches 100%. Getting may hit increases infection. Take antibiotics to cure infection, such as honey, herbal antibiotics or pharmacy grade antibiotics. Antibiotics lessen stamina recovery penalty by half while curing.

    I think the AK is the one with the anti rad mod.

    Yes it is right in front of us. I just started working with the inventor/scientist who developed parallel chips back in the 1990s while I was still in highschool. So it's been around a long time, thing is no one was taught how to use/integrate it with modern serial architecture. Is a missing piece of puzzle, not a replacement. You'll see, it's happening, finally.

    Sounds like that guys is making a solar sterling engine, I can imagine that working decently if done right. Neat.

    Why not? Just switch once a block breaks, or update its nav mesh, or disable nodes that are blocked, etc.

Of course I will still watch it, I watched the last series twice, in full, and I almost never do that.

    Madmole and Roland I imagine you both are aware of the Neebs series, it is one of their most successful, and they get MUCH higher average view numbers per episode than other streamers and youtubers. It was over 1 million for the first episode and hovered between 750k and 300k for the other 50+ episodes. So you should be aware(imagine you are) and supportive, I have met a number of people who got into 7DTD because of their videos.

    The series was about a year last time, so hundreds of thousands of people are going to watch it and think that A17, not A18, is what your game is, from this Friday's premiere until around this time next year. Be a shame if it turns out that way, imagine it will affect your sales and reputation if it does. What think you of this?
    I think A17 was the best version up to that point and that people watch Neebs for their group dynamic more than anything. They complained about a lot of stuff and roasted the game all over the place in their A16 series as well.

    People see a crew of guys having fun and that’s all that matters. Besides....think about the marketing strategy of all these smart phone games. They show a demo of the game where the player fails and sucks because they know the viewer will think, I can do better than that.

    Anyone who watches Neebs 7 Days to Die episodes is most definitely thinking, I can do better than these clowns—while dying laughing of course.

    Love that Idea, some like the industrial part of the game a lot.

    Sorry you had a bad history teacher, to be sure, that won't help, and kids might not (at the time) appreciate it, but democracies die, foremost through apathy, and I tend to see a lot of that nowadays I reckon.
    Well instead of learning about the holocaust, I'd cover it, but spend more time teaching about famous inspirational speakers, inventors, how someone started a business and created 1000's of jobs and transformed a poverty stricken area into a robust community, etc. Inspirational positive history, not tragedy and "what not to do".

    In the horde night video MM did on the elevated platform block downgrades are still in. The steel blocks downgraded to concrete.

It allows you to understand people, societies, cultures, change. History gives answers to a ton of important questions: Why do we do things this way? Why do we have these institutions? Why this kind of government? It gives you perspective.

    I know, for a lot of people this doesn't matter. Most people live their life as they were told and don't ask questions. They pay taxes, vote, go to church, because they were told so, but they never truly understand why. Studying history gives you the chance to understand this.

    Of course I would change they way that history is taught in schools, at least in my country. Knowing all the names of all the monarchs of europe of 1000 years is useless..

    Also I agree that the other useful skills that you mentioned should be taught in schools too.
    Yeah that is why American history was way better to me than World history.

    Have to ask, it's been 5 years after the estimated delivery that will the "5x5 grid Crafting System" be included as listed on the kickstarter? I noticed it was in game then was taken out.
    You must be trolling. Actually we did make a 5x5 then removed it, so KS goal was completed, then we opted for list crafting because its superior.

    TFP thought it was a clunky way of doing things and I have to agree. What is gained by having it?
    Pretty sure my M60 was doing nearly half damage, I need to look into it, they went down like flies in the earlier videos. We just got "non repeating POIS" and "bigger towns" so I think its farewell to my favorite character of all time and I'm probably starting a new game with intellect or perception, depending on what I run into right away.
