Hey everybody!

In this first episode of "700 Ways To Die", we'll take a stroll around the overground fortifications that lead the the entrance to my subterranean base beneath a lake in the Wasteland, and also tour the still under-construction underground facility. As the tour goes on, I share my thinking behind why I designed and built the defenses the way I did, and share some hopefully-helpful tips you can apply to your own stronghold. Check back for Episode 2, when this design gets put to the test of a 25 minute night-time zombie horde assault! (I also do a full analysis of what worked well and what didn't!)

Happy Zombie Apocalypse, Everybody!

Many thanks to everyone on the "7 Days To Die" forums and those contributing to the Wiki!

Footage shown was recorded in Alpha 6.1 using a map originally created using Alpha 5. Caveats: Any factual errors are my own, I'm still learning about the game as I go. My headset mic isn't the best, so apologies in advance for the less-than-spectacular voiceover quality. This is also my very first YouTube walkthrough video and I'm still learning how to work with Adobe Premiere, so be gentle in the comments. lol. ;)

Good video, nice base, and mic is fine
Nice half block murder hole

Just a few things i thought of:
-wood spikes currently ineffective for large hordes (they kill 1 zombie on harder difficulties)
-increasing the jump gap into your base to two blocks would be a good idea
-putting plywood or some other kind of fencing block in front of your crops will prevent you from walking into them
-water can penetrate through 1 block of dirt, you can have two rows of dirt on each side of a row of water
-tungsten doors are currently stronger than hard metal doors. (break safes for scrap tungsten)
