    I think I can crack the code: so 1 9 6 and another 9

    Then you divide by every other day... wait... OK I got it!

    Roland was born in 2525 and is obviously a time traveler! So I guess mankind is still alive! Love math!

    If you know that the question annoys then you should also know that there is no answer.

    No word on fish.

    Hi Germany.

    We have this big giant progress bar on the top of this thread to show when A17 experimental will hit the streets (1:12)

    It's been about, oh, 3 months and it's down 75%. If we are lucky experimental will hit in about a month, if not maybe two. If we are very unlucky it might be even later. Who knows really.

    Oh, there is. The average player is not timing when producing each item to reach tool X in quality Y on day Z. Just contact your average player out there. Here people are just taking it for granted to go for steel tools on what? day 7 or even earlier?

    I would hate to see that become the basis of the game, you would scare off any new players and make a game for math geeks, not for players. Thus I think it's good that a forum is not seen as the average player opinion.

    There is a new video on the horizon. If not in the next couple days a very good chance by this weekend.

    There are still things not on the first page lists that are hopefully coming to A17 but might slip to A18 (which is why they aren't on the list).

    Understandable. Sometimes the details of life end up making it so that takes longer to get certain things done.

    No one really knows when it will be done. Though I would estimate that there is at least a couple months until it comes out. I'm guessing late summer at the earliest and quite possible later.

    Oh, you must be talking about the backhand slap animation and flush-able toilets. Thanks for the update.

    Honestly I was hoping A17 would be out by this summer so I could play it with my son while he was on summer break from school so I'm disappointed for a different reason than most I think but we all have our reasons.

    Itís great whenever someone takes the time to correct their writing. I encourage it. Just remember, you donít have to make a new post. You can edit the post you already made.

    People have many online communities to choose from, so something has to make the difference in choosing one over another. Each of them has the potential to act as an echo chamber, amplifying shared views and diverging from the average in the process.

    I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that this forum does NOT represent the feelings of the general 7 Days player. Not by a long shot. While our presence here does in fact mean we are MORE informed than the casual player, it doesn't mean we speak for them. Just have a look at the Facebook for the game, or the Twitter responses. Most people know nothing of xml, or how optimisations are happening. They just load vanilla and have at it. There are more than a few who do not even KNOW mods exist, likewise since I run my mod from Discord now there are players coming in from streams who got the launcher from a link in a stream who do not even know this place exists.

    That may seem incredible, but I kid you not. I have had to direct more than a few new players to my mod to the forum. To say that just because we are here, our opinions are more important is placing an inflated value on this community, which is not fair to the general public. I would go so far as to say that they have realized this which is why we only get to see "under the hood" discussions with devs here, while other places get the fancy previews. The general public by and large aren't typically interested in discussions on how reworking the rwg is increasing performances, or test videos on cone damage etc. They just want to see the cool stuff. How many times has MM or someone else got caught up in a heated discussion here that influenced a game decision in a negative way? Perhaps they just decided to refocus that energy on ACTUALLY making the game they set out to make without the distractions, which is their right to do.

    I used to think that this was THE only place devs should be interacting. And I over reacted several times not because the devs placed this burden on me to cause me to believe I was entitled to anything more than the outside world, but because I unfairly placed that burden on MYSELF and expected Pimps to live up to that burden.

    Everyone who plays loves. Why confine that common bond to JUST here? Sometimes the best way to get something done is to DISENGAGE and just get done what you want to get done.

    Woohoo new news! With all the stuff going on with stealth, I hope they didn't forget about meat in bags attracting zombies. It's such a small thing but added more risk to hunting and what not.

    a17 multiplayer

    I see all this cool stuff. and i'm wondering when I can get a steam supported dedicated server updated with a17 launch? can we get someone to comment on the updated support for the multiplayer? sorry if its been asked, I just paid for this and am curious if that is something that can or will be updated.
