Alpha 16 is out 06.06.17

Hey Survivalists,
Alpha 16 is out and is by far the largest content update we’ve ever done. So without further ado let’s get ready to rumble!

 

Alpha 16 Official Release Notes!

This update is the most ambitious update for us since Alpha 1 and by far has the largest framework changes we’ve ever done. And to top that off it’s the biggest content drop we’ve ever done. In fact it was 88 pages of release notes that had to be condensed to what you see below. So without further ado, Let’s get ready to rumble!

Distant Location Rendering System
We’ve added a new distant location rendering system which renders low-polygon versions of locations in Navezgane and Random Gen worlds over a kilometer away. The system creates models of locations above a certain mass and height.

New Locations
We’ve have embellished many old locations with new loot and some custom painting. Too many to mention. We’ve also unlocked a new city in the south east Navezgane desert we call Departure. It’s the largest city so far. We have added over 30 new locations to the game including:

  • 4 new skyscrapers have been added to the game. We’re calling these mega locations vertical dungeons because they play like a traditional game with a lot of thought put into the path, enemy spawning, surprises, even secrets.
  • 3 fast-food restaurants (1 in Navezgane, all 3 in RG)
  • 6 new modern houses (3 in Navezgane all in RG)
  • Daycare (Both)
  • Private School (RG only)
  • Laundromat (Navezgane and RG)
  • Hair Salon (Navezgane and RG)
  • 2 fire stations (1 Navezgane, both RG)
  • 2 Post Offices (1 Navezgane, both RG)
  • 2 Court Houses (1 Navezgane, both RG)
  • 2 Old business strips (Navezgane and RG)
  • 4 new trailer lots (RG only)
  • Pawn Shop (Navezgane and RG)
  • Navezgane Hospital and Football Stadium (added to RG)

New Enemy Spawning and Gamestages
Sleeper Spawning – We’ve gutted the old static spawn system and added a new sleeper spawning system that embeds trigger volumes into locations which are set up by designers.

  • We’ve added sleeper volumes and spawn points to every location in the game.
  • Every location has unique spawning appropriate to the location or the area within a location. F.E. a maintenance area will spawn utility worker zombies and an office might spawn businessmen zombies
  • The amount of zombies spawned at a volume is determined by the spawn definition set by the designer and the definition set in the gamestages.xml regardless of the number of spawn points.
  • The type of zombies that spawn are determined by the spawn definition it’s set to and the parties game stage. The game will challenge you regardless of your level.
  • Zombies will spawn in different locations within a pois every play through for a new experience every time.
  • Zombies at locations are persistent meaning if you entered an area killed 1 of 5 guys and returned you would find the same 4 games alive.
  • Zombies will respawn in their volume if the volume has never been cleared or nobody has visited it in 5 days
  • Sleeper zombies have a chance to be a decoy meaning they are already dead. We added this so we could remove the old corpse loot block. Note: you have to damage them first before you can loot them.
  • Decoy zombies have a chance to not be dead so you can be surprised sometimes
  • Gamestage increases much faster on higher difficulty levels making zombies big, bad, and bountiful.

Screamer Hordes
We’ve changed screamer hordes to use gamestages now so they will be dynamically set to the offending parties game stage

Game Stage Improvements
We’ve made many changes to make the challenge the advanced players including:

  • We’ve added feral and radiated zombies to the upper game stages to increase the longer game challenges
  • 7 day horde stages use a larger pool of zombie types, 15 at gamestage 435+
  • Zombies killed by playerdeath will be added back to the pool
  • We’ve added a new menu and server config game option to set the number of  zombies per player on Blood moon hordes. It defaults to 8 but can be set to 4, 8, 12, 16, 32 and 64 or any number for server admins. Game-stages are still determined by your party.
  • With the addition of blood-moon count we changed the Enemy Spawning game option to ON/Off as blood moon count and sleepers control the other spawning system counts

Electricity
We’ve added a complete functional electricity system with a wiring tool, power sources, lights, switches, triggers, traps and more. These items are gated by perks, loot found and trader only items you can buy. They include:

  • Wire Tool – Use a wire tool to wire electrical components. Focus on any electrical component and use the secondary action to add a wire to a parent and once again to complete the connection to a child component. Focus on any electrical component and use the primary action to remove or cut that components wire to its parent component. With the wire tool equipped you can see many useful things including: a components power usage and power status, the flow of power from parent to its child component and the aiming of objects with motion sensing.
  • Generator Bank – The Generator Bank allows you to power your electrical components. It requires at least one small engine, expandable up to six. The maximum energy output is determined by the number of small engines installed and their quality. The generator bank uses gas for fuel which can be found in loot and purchased at traders or crafted at chemical stations and campfires.
  • Solar Bank  The Solar Bank allows you to power your electrical components. It requires at least one solar cell, expandable up to six. The maximum energy output is determined by the number of solar cells installed and their quality. Solar banks produce power during the day when in direct sunlight. Solar Banks and cells can be purchased from traders or found in rare loot.
  • Battery Bank  The Battery Bank allows you to power your electrical components. It requires at least one battery, expandable up to six. The maximum energy output is determined by the number of batteries installed and their quality. An externally powered and turned on Battery Bank will recharge its batteries. If there are no batteries installed it acts as a relay pushing power down line.
  • Electric Wire Relay –  The Electric wire relay allows extending your electrical network further with a small cost to power.
  • Switch – The Switch allows pausing the flow of power to children components.
  • Pressure Plate – The Pressure Plate triggers the flow of power to children components when stepped on.
  • Motion Sensor – The Motion Sensor triggers the flow of power to children components when a player or zed is in its view.
  • Trip Wire Post – The Trip Wire Post triggers the flow of power to children components when a player or zed moves between two connected posts.
  • Electric Timer Relay – The Electric Timer Relays allows the flow of power to children components during a specified time period in 30 minute increments.
  • Blade Trap – The Blade trap has three spinning blades that chops players and zeds alike. It does not discriminate.
  • Electric Fence Post – The Electric Fence Post shocks players and zeds who move between two connected posts.
  • Dart Trap – The Dart trap launches metal darts when powered.
  • Auto Turret – The Auto Turret senses targets in its view and fires 9mm rounds at them.
  • Shotgun Turret – The Shotgun Turret senses targets in its view and fires shotgun shells at them.
  • Speaker – The speaker plays an alarm sound when powered.
  • Lights – There are many lights that the player can now craft to illuminate their forts.
  • Spotlight – The player crafted Spotlight has changed to require power but can now be aimed be where light is needed.

  • POIs
    • New RG Distant POIs
    • Over 30 new locations
    • We’ve re-organized the rwgmixer.xml and it’s spawning groups and now have every POI spawning as intended
    • POI location size restrictions have been removed so every location will now be included in possible locations lists. F.e. the football stadium can spawn
    • POI Picker code improved, ensuring a more even distribution of POIs
    • POI location facing directions have been fixed so their fronts face roads
    • POI height is checked against it’s spawn height to ensure it’s not placed too high in the world
  • Hub Generation
    • New socket hubs added
    • City, town, and rural Hubs are now Socket Hubs and spawn based on terrain available
    • Socket hubs can not only be on hills now but they now have organic overall shapes and look. No more square cities.
    • Socket hub township type is decided by placed residential buildings using a scoring system
    • New socket streets to go with socket hubs
    • New socket street generation formula controllable via rwgmixer.xml
    • New zoning system to place POIs in certain parts of a town
    • Downtown zone area percentage parameter added to rules

  • Highways
    • Highways are sexier and have smoother curves
    • Highways now all have gravel shoulders

Other World Generation and Biome Changes
Biomes have undergone some changes, too.

  • The gravel spots in biomes are more reliable and will drop 1 unit of the ore they are leading you to.
  • Stone in the top soil of plains biomes has been replaced by gravel
  • Individual particle spawners (tree stumps) have been replaced by a biome particle manager so there is no random (and possibly extremely high) concentration of particle generators
  • Spawning of animals in all biomes has been reworked.
  • Darkened snow biome sun light a little to reduce whiteout.
  • You can find small patches of fertilised soil in burnt forest biomes.
  • You can harvest coal from ember piles and burnt trees.
  • Surface potassium nitrate in the snow biome is now replaced with oil shale and coal.
  • Nitrate, oil shale and coal can be found on the surface in the burnt forest.
  • Added dead trees to the plains.

New Enemies
We’ve added some new zombies and some boss variants to improve game stage challenge. Here they are:

  • Business man zombie – Often found in corporate locations like the new skyscrapers, these zombies are all about the business of eating you alive. They typically carry cash and paper.
  • Disturbed Tourist – Everyone loved the old fat Hawaiian shirt tourist zombie so he’s back in HD! Prior to his permanent vacation to the afterlife he was hoarding canned food. Perhaps that is why he was caught and turned into a flesh eater.
  • New feral zombies – Every zombie in the game now comes with its feral counterpart. Feral zombies always run and have glow in the dark yellow eyes, are much harder to kill and do more damage.
  • Radiated zombies – There are radiated variants of the fat cops, the spider zombies and the zombie wight ‘the artist formerly known as the feral.’ They have the physical attributes of feral zombies and always run, but also regenerate lost health! They glow with radiation making them unmistakable!

Reworked Enemies
In Alpha 15 we experimented with UMA procedural zombies but they ended up not looking as good as traditionally modeled zombies, and they did not perform as well either so we decided to replace the new UMA zombies with traditionally designed ones. We’ve also redone collision and ragdoll on all enemies for better combat and more believable deaths. The following have been remodeled and redesigned by hand from scratch resulting in scarier hordes and better performance.

  • Fallen Soldiers
  • Hazmat male zombie
  • Biker zombie
  • Stripper zombie
  • Utility worker zombie
  • Team Z Player Football zombie
  • Motivated Cheerleader zombie
  • Zombie Cowboy
  • Zombie Farmer
  • Zombie Skater punk
  • Hungry Fat Female zombie
  • Removed zombies – The miner zombie and the female hazmat zombie have been removed as they didn’t offer enough variance to earn a permanent job at team Z.

Animals
Along with adding new animals and reworking some of the old ones we have added a new fur system. All furry animals now utilize our new fur system which renders a furry coat of realistic looking fur on top of the texture. Here are the new or improved additions:

  • Grizzly bear – The grizzly bear has been redone from scratch with new meshes, textures and animations. They don’t mess with you unless you get too close to them. They like to habitat in the green forests and snow biomes.
  • Zombie bears – The zombie bear has been remodeled from the ground up and is meaner than ever. Don’t feed the zombie bears, they only eat human flesh. They are only found in the wasteland and burnt forests.
  • Wolves – Grey Wolves are a brand new threat to 7 Days. Like the bear, they attack if you get too close to them, and do more damage than zombie dogs but they give up easier. Wolves are found in the green forests, snow biomes and plains.
  • Dire Wolves – Black with glowing eyes, this wolf is much larger than the grey wolf and is to be feared as they are much more aggressive than any predator. They rarely spawn in the forests and snow biomes, but can roam in packs.
  • Zombie Vultures – The undead have taken to the skies! These nearly relentless pesky birds stalk the player from the skies and attack without warning. Luckily they  don’t like to be indoors so players can find refuge indoors from them. They are common in all biomes except the green forests.
  • Rattlesnakes – Rattlesnakes are fairly defensive reptiles but will strike and defend their territory if you get too close to them.
  • Added: Wandering vulture hordes, wolves, and wolf packs
  • We’ve also redone collision and ragdoll on all animals for better combat and more believable deaths.
  • Replaced pigs with wild boars. They attack if provoked.

Painting
Use a paint brush and paint to give your base a custom look. Focus on any paintable block and use the secondary action to paint a surface and the primary action to erase the paint from a surface. Hold the reload key to see additional painting features and change the desired paint color. Unlock additional paint groups by finding and reading painting books. Many new textures have been added to use for painting.

There are many Radial paint options some of which are only available in cheat or creative mode. Radial Options include:

  • Materials – When this icon is selected the paint selection menu is displayed. Here you can select the paint you want, search for paints, see how much paint per face they cost and see what paints you have unlocked.
  • Paintbrush  – When this icon is selected the primary action erases a painted block face and secondary action paints a block face.
  • Roller Icon – Paint or erase a larger area of faces.
  • Spray-gun – Paint or erase the massive area of faces.
  • All-sides – Paints all sides of a block face.
  • Texture Picker – When this icon is selected the paintbrush will be set to the paint that the cursor is focused on if it is unlocked.
  • Copy Block – Select this icon while focusing on the desired block to copy a stack of painted blocks to your belt.
  • Replace – Select this icon and the next face you paint in a location will be globally replaced within that location.

Experience, Progression and Skill Changes
Many improvements and changes have gone into the skill system for Alpha 16, including:

  • You can scroll through all levels of a skill or perk and find out what you will get from it.
  • You will get less experience for killing zombies but there are a lot more zombies in the world now. In some cases over 100 in a single POI.
  • You will gain XP from harvesting and farming and better tools or perks can increase that.
  • Crafting skills are now perks with 10 buy-able levels.
  • Higher levels of crafting perks require a certain player level.
  • Armor crafting skills merged into one skill. If it takes duct tape, leather or iron, it’s Armor Crafting. A simple bandana is Misc Crafting.

  • Electricity recipes are unlocked with a series of Science-based perks.
  • Both the cost and effect of perks increase at higher tiers so that buying a perk tier gets you an increase proportional to the cost.
  • The Fixer perk is cheaper and reduces repair degradation by up to 1/3 for all crafting skills.

  • Crafting advanced workstations uses the science skill
  • The Knife Guy and Miner69er perks increase harvest amount at the higher tiers
  • Adjusted perk costs to reflect crafting and other skill changes
  • Both the cost and effect of perks increase at higher tiers so that buying a perk tier always gets you roughly the same proportional increase
  • The Fixer perk is cheaper and reduces repair degradation by up to 1/3 for all crafting skills
  • Low crafting skill tiers yield great benefits for repair degradation. Picking up some of the basics enables you to repair items efficiently. At max crafting skill you have zero repair degradation

  • You can pickup and move electrical components and work stations inside your claim.
  • Electrical Items outside of your claim can be cut and wired by strangers

New Stealth System
Stealth 2.0 is more flexible and allows for more varied zombie behaviors.

  • Things that affect how a player is detected:
    • Player Light Level (world lighting and equipped items)
    • Player Stance (Standing or Crouched)
    • Player Motion
    • Noise
    • Smell (carrying fresh meat is not ideal for sneaking around zombies)
    • Distance
  • Zombies have varying stats both for the zombie type and individuals.
    Some see better than others, some hear better than others, some smell be… actually they all smell bad but you get the idea.
  • A sleeping zombie may or may not growl a bit when it’s close to waking up.
  • Which way a sleeping zombie is looking does matter.
  • If you clear an area completely it will take several days to respawn. If you don’t and leave it will respawn quickly.
  • Placed (active) bedrolls prevent sleeper respawns in a… range
  • …now defined in serverconfig.xml (BedrollDeadZoneSize)
  • To zombies, held torches are the least noticeable light source. Then come gun lights, flashlights, and the mining helmet is the most noticeable.

Random Gen Worlds 3.0
We’ve greatly improved random gen with many improvements and additions including:

  • New RG Distant Terrain
  • New road system that uses pathfinding for smoother transitions in height in all areas besides the hub entries.
  • Terrain generation is now in rwgmixer.xml: This allows for modification of the terrain
  • Biome generation is now also in rwgmixer.xml : This allows for modification of biomes
  • Hubcell data is generated and saved in the game’s save dir: This allows backward compatibility and prevents RWG from regenerating the hub each time it’s called when not cached.
  • Rwgmixer is saved to the game’s save dir: This ensures the same terrain generation and biome generation and prefab regardless of edits to the main file.
  • All new locations spawn except for the football stadium, canyon gift shop and canyon cliff dwellings.
  • We added a Random Gen Wolrd Previewer tool see the modding section below for more details.

Journal Tip System
A new journal tip system has been added to the main in game menu signified by a pen icon. The system writes all old tips and has over 20 new conditionally based in-game tips that pop out with a right screen notification. Players can at their leisure read these tips on advanced gameplay system teaching players everything from gun assembly when finding their first gun to harvesting with the best tool after killing their first animal.

Trader and Economy System
We have added NPC traders to the game at 5 unique White River settlements signified by a White River Flag and a Traitor Joel’s sign. These Settlements and NPCs appear in both Navezgane and Random Gen Worlds. NPCs include Trader Joel, Trader Rekt, Trader Bob, Trader Hugh and Trader Jimmy. The settlements are 100% land protected, players cannot build near them and players will be teleported out when the traders are closed so they cannot be exploited as a night time safe haven. Traders announce over loudspeakers when they are open, closed and about to close. When they close they lock their gate and turn off their open sign. When they open they unlock their gate and turn on their open sign. It is wise to close the gate behind you so you don’t let the zombies follow you into a settlement.

The in-game economy uses Duke coins and players can see how many they have in the upper right corner of their backpack. Traders will restock items periodically so check back often. They also have a secret stash category signified by a safe icon which offers special items based on your level and perks. Some items can only be bought or sold in bundles. Traders are open for business between dawn and dusk. Invest in the Barter skill and Secret the Stash perk to get better deals and see better items with traders.

We also added a new ‘White River Citizen’ quest to find Trader Outposts. The Quest is received when completing the ‘Basics of Survival’ quest chain.

Vending Machines
There are three types of vending machines: beverage vending machines found at stores, rentable trader protected vending machines found at Trader Settlements, and player owned vending machines which can only be acquired through a Trader’s Secret Stash. All vending Machines use Duke Coins which can be found in the world or acquired through selling items to Traders. You can see how much money you have in the upper right of your inventory.

NPCs can purchase from your rented vending machine so it’s wise to keep it well stocked and not mark up the items too high. If you buy your own vending machine it’s wise to put it in your land claim area as other players with effort can destroy them and steal your goods. Use these at your own risk as vending machine raiding ‘griefing’ will be possible. Note rented or player owned vending machines can be password shared if you want to let a friend use all of your vending machines functions.

Blood Moon Horde Party System
We have added a partying system that groups players together into parties of one or more players within a minimum distance. These parties will now each get their own blood moon horde.

Blood Moon Dynamic Difficulty
We have also added a Blood moon horde dynamic difficulty system. At runtime the game calculates the spawn game stage difficulty group for each party based on the criteria of number of players in the party, each player’s level in the party, each player’s current days survived ratio in the party and the hosts global difficulty setting. These things work together to output a game stage number or dynamic difficulty number for each party.

Higher game stage numbers have harder enemies F.E. Game stage 10 might only have base female and crawler zombies while game stage 20 might spawn those plus Dogs and Feral Zombies.  Higher game stages will also have higher spawn limits meaning more total spawned not more alive at once to keep the games framerate consistent. New players can join the game just before the first Blood moon and only get a game stage 1 horde if they’re the only party member. The plan is to use the dynamic difficulty system for static spawned and screamer hordes in A16.

Improved Farming
We’ve improved the farming adding fertilizer and 5 new growable crops: Yucca, Mushrooms, Red Flowers, Aloe and Hops to make Beer. The soil can be improved and depending on it’s quality, grown crops will yield a greater harvest. Trees require regular dirt to grow to full size. Growing them in a desert or snow biome is less efficient.

Chemistry Station
We’ve added a new craftable Chemistry Station where both old and new advanced chemical and compound recipes can now be crafted. While some critical recipes can still be crafted with a beaker on a campfire, crafting them in a chemistry station is faster and requires fewer resources. Advanced recipes are limited to the chemistry station.

Station Searching
Recipe searches now show recipes that can only be made at any station signified by a special icon on the right of the recipe bar. This allows players to find and learn about recipes they cannot make at their current station or backpack.

New UMA Zombies
We’ve expanded on our general UMA system to use it to make custom zombies with unique loot, health and some with unique behaviors or abilities into the general spawning, special locations and blood moon spawning. The system is used for our NPCs like Traders too and will be used for Bandits in upcoming updates.

  • Fallen Soldier Zombie (Found at Army and Government Installations. Notable loot includes firearms and military gear)
  • Hazmat Male and Female Zombies (Found at Army and Government Installations. Notable loot includes hazmat gear and technical supplies)

Experience, Progression and Skill Changes

  • The most notable difference is that you now gain level XP when killing zombies and animals. It will always be possible to reach level 200.
  • Weapon and armor skills will now increase faster.
  • Experience from action skills like mining is no longer capped when the skill reaches 100. It may not be much but you will always gain some XP while harvesting resources.
  • With a crafting skill of 100 you can craft Quality Level 500 items.
  • To get higher quality items you can use the combine feature of the workbench or go out and find better items in loot or on traders.
  • Before buying perks you can see which stats are going to be affected and what your base value for that stat currently is.
  • Concrete mix is now only crafted in a cement mixer. You may find cement mixers in the world now.
  • The Steel Smithing perk now has multiple (but pricey) levels where you can acquire recipes for items that are usually only found and harvested.

Sign Creation System
Players can craft, place and add custom text on small medium and large signs made of wood. Sizes are 1×1, 1×3 and 2×5

Localization

We now support 4 languages English, Spanish, French and German which can be set through your steam language selection Tab. In Steam Right click on 7 Days/properties/language select your language. Note: Some new or rectly changed text will only appear in English which will be updated in future releases.

Steam Achievements
We have added a ton of Steam achievements some of which are secret.

Improved Ore Veins and Mining
We have random underground mineral veins where you can find all the old ores plus new rare mineral deposits which can yield Diamonds, Gold, and Silver. These minerals can be sold at the Trader Stations.

Workbench Improvements
We added a new combine items feature to the workbench where players can combine 2 similar items to produce one of better quality. We have also moved some advanced recipes exclusively to the workbench. Workbenches have been added to some locations like trader settlements and other areas. Workbenches can also be disassembled with a wrench.

Backpack and Container Sorting
We added a new backpack and loot container sorting system. Just click on the icon of your backpack and container and items will stack and sort properly.

New Recipes
There are over 80 new recipes including a Chemistry Station, Beer, Snowberry Juice, Player Made Signs, Draw Bridges, Garage Doors, Arrow Slits, Wooden and Metal Catwalks, Railings and Stairs and switchable lights.

Modding and Tools

We’ve replaced the old create world main menu button with a new one called ‘Editor Tools’. Under it you will find a new utility we call the ‘Random Gen World Previewer’. You can use it to see what a seed may look like including:

  • The dispersion of the included biome types in the rgmixer.xml file
  • The dispersion of the included city, town, rural and wilderness locations in the rgmixer.xml file
  • The general topography of the world as set in the rgmixer.xml file

The Random Gen World Previewer’ has 2 input windows one for the game seed name and one for the preview size, 1 is the fastest. You can click the refresh button to see the current preview which reloads the most recent saved version of the rgmixer.xml. Note:  It can take a little while to appear depending on your pc and the preview size. Once the preview appears the controls include:

  • Zoom in and out with the Mouse wheel.
  • Pan using Mouse 1 hold and drag.
  • Tilt to see the height with mouse 2 hold and drag.

Here is a color chart to help understand what color represents what biome.

Note: We have plans to improve and augment the controls and features of the this and add other modding tools in future updates.

• Fixed an issue with rain SFX playing more loudly in some biomes than others
• Fixed an issue where ambient rain sounds would play on the main menu after quitting a game

Gameplay Issues and Improvements
• Fixed an issue where the player would overheat too quickly, even when attempting to cool themselves by standing in water or going to a snowy biome

• Fixed an issue where dropped items (e.g. Auger) would fall through the world
• Fixed an issue where hordes would spawn every day after Day 49
• Optimized network packet for less network data
• Added search field for inventory in Single Player and Online Multiplayer sessions
• Added in-game controller vibration when the player takes damage above a certain threshold. You may enable or disable this setting within the Controls menu.
• Fixed an issue where the map in the map menu would load more slowly for clients in an online session
• Fixed an issue where the Airdrop Supply Marker would disappear when the player moves out of range
• Fixed an issue where the player could scroll outside of the map’s borders in the menu
• Fixed an issue where the shooting animation would become corrupted when the player stopped aiming down the sites
