View Full Version : [04/21] Title Change and Clare-ification

Hi all!

So no doubt some of you will have noticed that my title under my username has gone from "Fun Pimps Staff" to "Console Community Manager". I wanted to take this opportunity to clarify my role.

As community manager for the console, Im the contact between you and the Teams working on the game - TFP, TTG and IGS. Most of the time, Im monitoring what you guys are saying and thinking about as well as helping with bug reports from the Console Bug Report section and passing on community feedback about the game to the development teams.

Some players have commented before, that they only get a response from me, but never hear from TTG or IGS. My original title might have been a bit confusing, as it make it seem like only TFP were responding. In actual fact, while I was labeled Fun Pimps Staff I was really 7DTD Staff and I'm technically a representative of the console development team. So when you get a response from me, it's a response from the console team as a whole as I am working on their behalf. So TTG and IGS are not ignoring console players or shifting responsibility - they are actually here, via me. Believe me, we discuss lots of bug and issues information, as well as regular updates on the community as a whole on a daily basis. Were highly engaged as we really care about the game and what you guys think.

We wanted to keep this community together, rather than splitting it up, so adding a console section to the already established forums made the most sense. Some of you play Console and PC, some just one or the other but we're all in here enjoying the game together. This is why Console Support is being run from here. Not only can you report issues directly to me, but you're also posting publicly - I can't even count the number of times this community has gathered together on a bug and shared all their information to help squash it. We are very thankful for this! There's also a group of regulars (you know who you are) who help spread what they know when I'm not around - even about bugs they've never had! This is an awesome community and I wouldn't have it any other way.

So, the following places, which some players have already contacted, will redirect here to the forum: IGS, TTG, TFP, Facebook Twitter and Reddit. This is where Support is run from and this is where I am. I wanted to be able to respond to everyone in time and not miss anything as well as keep all information public.

I hope this clears up some confusion that's been floating around and if you have any questions I'll be happy to answer as best I can.

Thank you for explaining how it all works; hopefully this will put to rest the fears some have that the console has been abandoned.

Thank you too for all your hard work; you provide so much help and support and it really is appreciated!

Thanks Clare, I went to leave a comment on the A16 about a video but it must have gotten deleted so heres the shorter version, thank you to the entire 7DTD staff for all your hard work and dedication. As a fan of the game, I appreciate it. Madmole, Clare, Roland, everybody, genuine thanks from an Xbox player.

Hard to enjoy a game when it crashes alot might want to tell them to focus on that in fact ill post a video of how many times it does crash then they can tell me when amd if they are ever going to fix it because from the time this game came out for console there hasnt been a single thing that pervents single player or multiplayer from crashing every few mintues yet. You might also want to tell them to add something alot more better in the next update that is more important then those stupid signs like increasing the chance to find the almost impossible nail gun i just got it today and i had to have my scavage skill to 90 by the time i got it i no longer needed it.

Clare

Hi Darklight666

So this post is an information post for those who were unsure of my role. I understand that the game crashing a lot can be very frustrating for a lot of players, even the ones that have started to work around it. If you post a video, please do so in the Console Bug Reports section with all the details of your game (If you've already done so, please link me to it, I may not have gotten that far yet today). I have a feeling I know what could be causing this for you, but without all the details it would be hard to say for sure. If it is what I'm thinking, then this is something the team are aware of and are working on increasing the stability of the game to reduce the crashes. And there have already been multiple crash fixes in past patches but as not everyone has the same crashes, some players may not have noticed the fixes.

I have stated in previous posts that new content is coming soon and I hope to be able to share more on what that new content is in the coming weeks. I'm sorry you didn't like the signs, a lot of players found them quiet handy, but understandable others would not. Content is a mixed bag, we'll probably never add a new piece of content that makes every player happy or that every player finds useful.

The Nailgun is one of the rarest items in the game. Aside from checking the regular haunts, killing lumberjacks and upping your scavanging, that's all you can do, some find it withing their first days, some go hundreds of days without one. The rarity is set by the TFP, so they would need to decide to change it first. But the great thing about the items in the game, as you said yourself, eventually you don't need them. But they are very handy when building early in the game.

Thanks Clare, you do an excellent job keeping everyone in the loop. Im still loving the game and ive found the recent changes awesome. Dogs, signs,terrian and the minibikes have really helped the polished feel of my gaming experience. Im sympathetic to darklight, crashing would be frustrating. I havent had a crashed in many months. Yeah, ill risk jinxing It, with confidence. Thanks for Clarely and Clare-fully deClareing your Clarevoyant Clare-ical disCla re mer Clare. *wince*. Painful but necessary, sorry. Im going to eat my cylindrical, chocolate, creamfilled doughnut now.

Few ideas or things you all have heard before maybe you could give us details on whats going on so far *deer animations...please they need help*more players if 8 is too hard maybe 6 weapon damage needs balanced a little bit *when is some of the pc stuff gonna make its way to us ie twisting single spikes upside down and higher fortifications for them and other things

4 is apparently killing the hardware now. I do hope that they can make it 8 like the PC version, but as the consoles currently sit, they desperately need a hardware upgrade that the PS4 Pro and Scorpio did not bring to the consoles.

Eventually Unity might get optimized enough, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that.

Well scorpio isint out until winter so we dont really know about that yet but i know the size is large but i dont see why the current ones are having issues 7dtd isint graphically intense at all 6 should be plausible so many other graphic intense games hold more then 4 players i do know that it turns your xbox into a server basically just like MC does but i think MC holds 16 people idk maybe im looking at this wrong but i think they should be able to accomplish this if they actually put forth the effort....MORE DLC people will pay and that would provide the money into perfecting this game colors for minibikes paint schematics or themes in general still a great game... crashes a bit but i dont think i could say i found a game where i like digging as much as this not even MC lol in the process of building a mega tunnel of concrete that will disperse in multiple directions underground allowing for minibike travel and safe spots clear across our map also implementing wall safe drop boxes for transferring resources from location to location instead of having to run it all back friend can come pick it up and take it home without having to come the whole way "underground mail road"

It's because it's a voxel based game where processors have to do many calculations simultaneously, read up about it its interesting but also for me very confusing but i kind of get it lol.

Even though the graphics look garbage compared to what everyone is used to, each and every block on the entire map acts like an individual entity. So it's like imagine about 3 million zombies standing on screen all with animation and AI. That's why 7dtd is actually hard on the hardware. Even good PC's get wrecked by this game at times.

Yeah that's what i mean about it being a voxel game todays graphics cards and cpu's are not designed for voxel gaming (yet) they can do it but not efficiently there are too many things to calculate i'd love to explain it more thoroughly but my knowledge is limited i only know what i know from trusted sources devs/modders etc just know the destructible and minable terrain takes a vast amount of processing power that consoles can not keep up with yet.

Just because the console isn't out yet doesn't mean people aren't familiar with the hardware. Thunder has made comparisons and it's really sad tbh.

Everything you talk about has already been discussed over and over but here you are, saying what it should be without actually knowing much if anything at all.

You know what would be a good addition to the game a tool such as a weed whacker to collect plant fibers and mow grass more efficiently. It could be made from scrap cable, handlebars, small engine, and forged iron and run on gas. It could be used as a weapon by holding the trigger down.
