"What did I say would happen" "uhh yeah you were right" then they do the same crap again or new crap and barely learn.

    Maybe I had crappy teachers, but I don't recall learning anything from history classes. I find it more interesting now, but as a kid or teenager it was worse than watching paint dry. I am curious what you think a student can learn from it.
    Learning history allows you to be able to think. I'm not talking about day to day think, I'm talking about the big picture. It allows you to understand the present and the context that you live in. It allows you to understand where we came from and in which direction we are going. 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.

    Of course you can also go with regular ammo which works "well enough" and is cheaper to make but doesn't over-penetrate like AP...
    You'll figure it out. =P
    From the new video, I'd say hollow point ammo is broken against armored zeds, not just weaker.

    • Madmole's personal assets, including his enormous personal gym, his incredibly expensive custom made sofa, his Hellcat, his castle, and whatever else he has mentioned multiple times already.
    • Madmole's views on the world that have no relation to 7 days to die, including education, people being sensitive, history being stupid, near death experiences and many others that I am forgetting.


    I don't mean to be offensive here, but I've been holding back on this for a while now to see if things got better, and it's aggravating to see Madmole write posts in big letters announcing that a game-related subject that he doesn't like discussing in the a18 diary is now off-topic, and still answer every single question of random users on random topics in great detail time and time again, even in an ongoing conversation, like we're in the off-topic section of the forums. It's a very unfair double standard that he has.

    I'm not against a developer sharing such things, but at least do it in the appropriate sections of the forum.
    What about rocks?

    MM . Thanks for the video. The demolishers' vocals are scary and cut through the chaos nicely.

    I love history but agree it could be taught in a more tantalizing fashion. I found this guys history podcast a few years ago and love it.

    There's a ton of gold to mined in history. There is also a ton that's lost forever because it was destroyed or forgotten. I am in the camp that it should be taught and maintained so we don't have to reinvent the wheel when the wheels fall off.

    You should have first asked gently, and made dinner for romance class. Not take it directly.

    Watched the recent video, and now it makes me want to spec in fortitude when A18 comes. It does show how different it'll be from the current version.

We greenlit on Steam, KS was just a tiny fraction of revenue and it had a bunch of ambitious features we were forced into, honestly we might have been done and by now and done better without it.
    I thought the kickstarter was very successful for you as you got more then double then the goal. It's reported TFP deleted their contact details as they got bombarded with emails etc. Which complicated things with Tripwire Interactive whom had to do a takedown and thought that was the reason TFP lost sales for over a week.
    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.

    It feels like its not in balance yet. Make more bullets but reduce the damage per bullet isn't a good idea IMO.

    TFP thought it was a clunky way of doing things and I have to agree. What is gained by having it?
