SUMMER UPDATE #2


Hi everyone!

Patch 11 - Summer Update #2 - has been put into submission! As usual I have some notes to keep you going and anticipating the release once it is approved by MS and Sony!

Last time we did this, there was a little bit of a hype train started in the announcement post. Lets keep the hype to a minimum in this thread. I've created a hype train for those who wish to jump on board over here...

https://7daystodie.com/forums/showthread.php?72863-Choo-Choo&p=725579#post725579

...so this thread can remain a serious discussion about the upcoming patch. Of course there's also the usual bits...

- NOTES only apply to the fix DIRECTLY ABOVE them, unless otherwise stated
- do NOT post bug reports below. They belong in the CONSOLE BUG REPORT section.
- keep posts CIVIL and RESPECTFUL when discussing or giving feedback about the patch.
- please keep the post ON TOPIC. This post is for the discussion of this patch ONLY.
- I do NOT have further info on future features beyond what is in the notes or updates on MD5, Multiplayer issues and other fixes, when I have those updates they will get their own post.

Now, onto the notes!

7 Days to Die [Console]
Release Notes
Patch 11.0
PS4 Version 1.16
XB1 Version 1.0.16.1

Patch 11 is right around the corner and, just like Patch 10, we’ve got a load of new features and bug fixes in store for you! We have had a blast implementing and testing them on console and can’t wait for you all to get your hands on it! Check out the list below to see what’s in Patch 11.


New Features
For those of you who follow development of the PC version of 7 Days to Die, the features below will probably look pretty familiar! ALL of these features will require you start a new game to experience them.

New Navezgane Map and Locations
Navezgane has been upgraded with a variety of changes, including:
· Almost 2 square kilometers of new explorable space
· New highly embellished height map with huge mountains in every biome
· New giant desert canyon
· New prefabs
· New locations using old prefabs

New Random World Generation Locations
Newly generated random games can contain over 15 new locations! These include:
· A hidden bomb shelter
· An oil refinery
· A funeral Home
· A prison
· The Red Mesa Government Installation
· Buzz’s Bar
· …and many more!

Traders
Traders have moved into zombie country and set up shop! They carry a variety of products, some of which you cannot get anywhere else in the game. They live in indestructible compounds that are open during daylight hours (6:05 – 21:50) and closed after dark. Players loitering inside the compound after close of business will be kicked out (aka automatically teleported outside of the compound).

Traders also provide rentable vending machines where players can sell their own goods to other players and even other unseen NPC survivors (see below for details). There are five different traders in the new Navezgane map and there will be at least one trader in every random gen world.ne trader in every random gen world.

Vending Machines
Vending Machines are new blocks in Patch 11. Vending Machines come in three flavors: beverage vending machines, rentable trader-protected vending machines found at Trader Settlements, and player-owned vending machines. Traders usually have beverage vending machines and several rentable vending machines in their compounds.

Beverage vending machines can be found at various locations and POIs. You can buy items from them using Dukes Casino Tokens but cannot sell items. The choice of items is limited to food and drink.

Rentable Vending machines can be rented for a fee (2500 Duke Tokens). The rent lasts 30 days. During this time, the Player can add items from his or her inventory to the vending machine. Prices can be increased above Standard Price or reduced (down to 20% of Standard Price). Other players in a game can purchase items from rented vending machines and, sometimes, sometimes items will be “bought” by NPCs (NPCs in this regard exist only as buyers; they can’t be seen or interacted with). Note that upon expiration of rent, all items still in the machine are lost!

Player-owned vending machines can be purchased from Traders after taking one point in the Secret Stash perk. These exist permanently in the spot a player places them in or until they are destroyed. Items placed in these vending machines are lost when the vending machine is destroyed.

Mining and Ore Updates
Worlds in all new games will contain random underground mineral veins where you can find all the old ores plus new rare mineral deposits (diamonds, gold, and silver). Players can hunt these veins out using new gravel patches on the surface that will indicate that there is ore below. New mineral types can be sold at the Trader Stations.will contain random underground mineral veins where you can find all the old ores plus new rare mineral deposits (diamonds, gold, and silver).

· Fixed an issue that allowed items dropped on the ground after the Lootable Gore Block was destroyed to be picked up from a long distance
· Fixed an issue that caused a player’s wellness to fluctuate upon getting snowberry poisoning
· Fixed an issue that caused characters to seem as though they had close on when they didn’t
· Fixed an issue that would occasionally cause players to become stuck in blocks
· Fixed an issue that would occasionally cause bedrolls to be destroyed after placement on an Iron Desk

Art/Audio
· Fixed an issue that caused the wooden spike to be missing several rotations
· Fixed an issue that caused artificial lights to dim for the client as the host moved further away from them in a local multiplayer game

System/Stability
· Fixed an issue that would cause the game to crash when a client in an online multiplayer game would log in after quitting the previous session as they were dying
· Fixed an issue that caused an unresponsive state in a local multiplayer game if both controllers were disconnected while the game was suspended
· Fixed an issue that caused the game to crash after the player would drop 3 or more candles
· Fixed an issue that caused the game to crash when a player would try to equip and assemble or scrap an item simultaneously

Excellent work and thank you for this! I have one question though; Since this patch doesn't bring the new zombies and traps into the game do I have to start a new game after they will arrive?

Peaswad
09-02-2017, 12:49 PM
Will the current worlds be able to use these or we have to start a new world? Also if I use the same seed as I've been using will it be completely different due to all new locations and trader locations?

Awesome! Cant wait for this! :D I'm guessing since it's not mentioned though that we wont get any new zombies in this patch? [not complaining! Love this patch! Just want to clarify!]

Trying to decide now how to design my brand new base in this new playthrough! :p

09-02-2017, 01:45 PM
Sounds great clare. With new poi's would that mean new blocks aswell? I could use a corner block for the wedge and wedge tip, and inside rounded block would also be great, so we Can make round holes.
What about the things only available in creative will they be unlocked in normal mode?

I know u probably cant answer thise question, so i'm just speculating here.

Again its great and thanks. I was running out of things to build in my current save, even though i just made a giant hole in the ground.

Oh this all looks too good! New POI's, traders.
No word on increase draw distance? Bummer.
But definitely excited about the rest

09-02-2017, 02:14 PM
Yay, the prison POI! :D

Now I can truly role play my Walking Dead fantasies, all I need now is a Rick Grimes skin pack. CORAALL!

Great work developers, you have my undying gratitude. I thought the last update was going to be hard to beat but this definitely tops it in my opinion.

Can't wait to delve back in and explore all these new locations and POI's, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we get the new heat map changes and improvements as well. That would be icing on the cake, for sure!

Sorry guys, I only know what's in the notes and probably wont have the answers for you til after labor day weekend, but will do my best.

Anything that generates in the world, like POIs will need a new map start. Your seed should look similar but the POIs and some POI placement could be off. It would now include trader outposts etc and there needs to be places for them to go.

New POIs SHOULD be on both maps, but again I'll get in touch with the team to confirm as soon as possible.

And paint, don't forget paint. Lol
Great update team, very nice. Actually makes it worth revisiting navezgane too.
Let's just hope MS and Sony don't take as long as last time, or at the very least, people remember it's now out of TFP's hands about how long the update takes to drop

I had that issue where in-game time stood still. Good to see it fixed. I'll be happy start a new game. My old bag became invisible even though there was a marker showing its location. It wasn't stuck in the ground or in the air. I couldn't see it to pick up my items. So excited for a new Navezgane map too, and traders!! Thanks team!

lol there is literally another post going right now complaining about there being no "summer update #2 info" so funny now that i see this...as i too complained. someone really should route traffic from there to here. or be funny mods and let it continue until people pull there head out of there ***. funny day. happy to know its coming. happier when i see it in my update que lol. hopefully microsoft isnt busy making another dirt console and pushes the patch up :)

edit:for anyonce who cares also, im apoligizing for the negativity toward staff and developers. especially the devs handling the port...as i was strongly misinformed. i guess you guys have been fixing bugs all along the way. just never rly noticed bc my game still crashes after 1-1.5 hours of gameplay. ill give true props to all involved in this game once i see that fix occur. its so badly needed...makes me suprised that ms or sony approves of this game at all tbh. im glad they do bc i play with crashes reguardless just it seems like software that damages hardware at this point.

Clare, I made a kinda comment over on the other thread to someone else. Was just going to ask if you might happen to know if the rwg seeds will change like A15 seeds? It be nice if console got the map preview but I understand if it doesn't get it. The main reason I ask is the seed thread will need to be taking of sticky and a new one will need to be started if seeds generate different after this update. I'm sure I'm not the only one that plays console and pc so if the seeds do change and match A15 pc seeds and console don't get the map preview option then some of us could load A15 in on the pc and post a few pictures of the maps lol.

Excellent job IG, going to be long week at work next week.
Was wondering why our patch notes are always so slim.
The new perk is briefly mentioned and the new block types to RW not at all
ie. Traders having steel polish allowing polished steel.
Was just wondering why we can't get a PC comprehensive notes.
Thank you for the continued updates.
Please take no offense Clare I would just like to know more.

The trader is okay, really like the sound of new/more poi's. I didnt see anything in bug fixes for not being able to pick up a frame unless you're right on top of it, or being able to upgrade a block from ground lvl all the way to bedrock. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the work you all are putting in to try and make this an even better game.

Well I have to man up and say I was way off base. I figured we wouldnt see another patch for months to come.

My apologies to the staff!

Now we just need electricity and traps and we will be golden!

Please no electricity and new traps without the option for higher blood moon count. It's too easy as it is.

Right? I haven't seen or heard of that one before.
But the big question. Did they fix the dogs!
Please tell me you didn't just port over the a15 version and forget dogs are broken in this version of the game. There absolutely OP. And I'm really glad to see the wasteland spawn disappear. I've started a few games and kept getting wasteland spawns.
There's nothing you can make or do on day one, besides just take it from Fido...

Exploding farms?

There's a bug when harvesting crops - it causes crops to 'explode' around the one you harvested. Current workaround is not to harvest quickly and to place catwalks/blocks in the space between crops, which helps to stop the reaction. You sometimes see it when smashing the small boulders on clay deposits - can be quite spectacular.

While it would be great, that is a larger change and woild be listed in the patch notes if any new.zombies would be added. I'd be willing to bet no.

Thank you so much, Devs and Clare!!! Really looking forward to kicking off a new game when this drops.Traders will be good but I'm hyped to check out the prison!

"Fixed an issue that would occasionally cause in-game time to pass while the player was in Rest Mode"

Can someone explain what "rest mode" is? Is this when you've pressed the start (Xbox) button on the controller during a game to bring up the game menu?

No, it's hibernation for your console. It's off but still maintains functions, like downloading stuff

Are you aware of the workaround to avoid MD5 errors? If not, take a look at this thread: https://7daystodie.com/forums/showthread.php?69218-Possible-work-around-and-or-solution-to-md5-crashes(base-wipes-resets)

It is an unofficial workaround so the advice is to use with caution and at your own risk, but it does seem to be helping people avoid the MD5 error. Might be worth a look; it could get you enjoying the game again.

They fix md5s with every update. They also never announce that it's fixed either because they are still finding triggers for it. I do hope you can trust that they would like to be done with this bug as much as you so do they could work more on other stuff. It's annoying in all aspects

Yeah I've known about this one but the game still crashes every hour, that killed it for me as well. So basically I would be doing this workaround every hour and that just kills the immersion for me. Thanks for the heads up though, you are always very helpful and kind.

Maybe they should announce when they fix triggers then because people like me who are waiting for that fix will not bother to tease themselves hoping it's fixed just to give it another try and have our games wiped by the same year old hourly triggers.

Took a lot to stop playing this game because I really do love it. I have to avoid watching youtube videos on it and all so I don't keep craving a game I can't play.

Until I see "fixed an issue causing the game to crash hourly" I'll stick to what I'm doing at the moment because I've already wasted hundreds of hours of my life I'll never get back.

I know none of this is intentional but you gotta understand where I'm coming from.

Let's just hope MS and Sony don't take as long as last time, or at the very least, people remember it's now out of TFP's hands about how long the update takes to drop

yes the paint system , i think it would help optimize the console version by reducing the block library , please implement the paint system ASAP thanks for the great update , btw will we be able to finally have access to the prison doors in normal mode

im sorry your on the xbox1(its the only console crashes like clock work, ) but if you wanna see the game fixed maybe participate in the bug reporting process , you saying "the games crashes every 90 min" doesn't help the bug get fixed , so honestly if you're not gonna help report the bug don't complain about it not getting fixed because at some point you're part of the problem

This is my only problem with this game now. This is supposed to be a finished game but we the customers are still asked to be thier game testers? When I was told on here that this is a finished game and anything else we get from the PC version was just extra. If this is a finished game on console then a bug that crashes said console every hour should maybe be a priority. I refuse to be a free tester for something that is considered complete.

Thank you Devs for continuing on making and continuing to update 7DTD and to Clare for continuing to bring us new information.

I'm really looking forward to this next patch especially the new POIs and new ores to be found.

At the same time there are still a few items that have not been addressed in the notes and perhaps they will be in the full patch notes when Patch 11 is released.

1.) All the corn being dead out in the world.
2.) Underground ore doesn't glimmer anymore it all appears to be stone.
3.) The weather effects in the Burnt Forest: It's appears to always be raining and the raining sound effects are very loud in comparison to when it rains in other biomes.

The problem is that the crashing might be an issue caused by a lot of different things, like the MD5 error itself. But many of the people complaining about MD5 and crashes aren't usually posting bug reports so perhaps a fix can be found. After all, these are usually the same people who also claim they don't want to be "testers" for the devs. As though reporting bugs isn't common, even for triple A titles.

The other problem, especially with releasing a pre-patch 2 version, is that these same people once able to play those games would then complain about not having everything else that others playing later updates have.

It's really a lose/lose situation, sort of damned if you do and damned if you don't.

It's in alpha get over it. Some of us enjoy seeing and playing games that are still in the process of becoming great. Otherwise we would ha e to wait forever to get to play good games like this. It's people like u that stop consoles from getting more survival games like this that r in alpha.

Yes the attacks are just childish & should stop but on the other hand the SAME people posting on multiple threads with the SAME negativity & related complaints are getting very old as well.

We almost need a sticky thread explicitly for Xbox users & about the md5 errors so those people can go complain there.

The forums should be informative & about the players coming together to share stories, tips, & just anything fun. Put the gripes & complaints, Xbox users, in a general area.

I do feel for you Xbox users & I'd be pissed too if I couldn't enjoy this game but like it's been said MANY MANY times over, make your complaints in the proper spot.

Much love everyone, this is a great game with lots of free updates & fixes, let's appreciate it. Every other games makes us pay for any new content...let's try to remember that.

Unsure, but with the way things have been going between us and the pc. We are catching up very fast. Just think 2 months ago we got a15 version of what pc had a year ago, now we are getting the second half of a15 with the new buildings. I'd imagine new zombies will come with this update.
Now if the compound bow is working I don't see a reason we won't get it. That's how it works , we had hotkeys and mini bike icons before pc. It worked so they also got it.
We shall find out soon huh?

This is new to me. How long does it take? Most of my sessions on the game have been like 3 or 4 hours tops at a time and never had a crash once since I've had the game.

If i have a lot of resources and do tons of building at once i get it.. If not building and just exploring locally i try to reboot every 6th or 7th day to avoid crashes. I don't mind a normal crash but the crashes where you lose half your build are a real downer

For content and updates i am pretty happy with things these days.. When we fell way behind on content i was kinda pissed lol but now that we are catching up i am just fine with it. I paid to Alpha test a game and that is what i am doing so i can't complain at all

while i'm not mad that i purchased a game in alpha that doesn't show any indication it's in alpha, everyone who is has every right to be. On the xbox, this game doesn't show up in the game preview section of games, and the description says nothing about the game being incomplete. On top of this, the game isn't just a "little buggy." Md5 errors erasing hours upon hours of a players time put in, as well as crashing every hour or so of gameplay can piss anyone off. Yes, a google search would probably result in informing a player that the game is in alpha, but unfortunately the marketing of the game should be doing that anyways, and i can't think of any other game that doesn't list itself as incomplete on the xbox marketplace if that's the case. In fact, it's a benefit to the devs that the player knows the game is incomplete as they can at least expect some issues (albeit, this game has some pretty huge issues that i personally wouldn't expect from a paid game).

I love the game and i know in time these issues will be resolved. But for those who aren't on the receiving end of MD5 errors or can play a full night having at most one crash, post a simple link to someone complaining (to the bug reports section) and politely request that they give all info they can on whatever the issue they run into is. FYI, time spent looking for bug fixes is not time spent on adding new content, so the xbox issues will hold back the playstation growth guaranteed (the man power they have won't change, if zero bugs then everyone would be put on content creation).

Also, really think about your "ps4 is a superior console" arguements and why the crap your using the 7 days forum for such a discussion. It's inherently ignorant to post that here. I'm sure theirs console wars reddit threads that will better hide your trolly purpose in posting such a ridiculous topic. I personally like xbox, but i can't fathom a reason as to why i would ever want to spout my preference as if it's a religion everyone must follow. Each console has exclusives that some people would love to access (I personally hate the fact i've yet to play Deception 4), and each has it's own problems (skyrim on Playstation had ridiculous issues for a long time, onigiri on playstation doesn't have bazaar stalls, 7 days has it's major xbox issues), simply put, their almost no concrete answer that one is better then the other. But again, if you want to fanboy over your sony product, do that on a forum that cares about your fanboyism.

Technically, the version we have is a "complete game". Iron Galaxy/Telltale only port the version that is considered on the PC side to be stable. That is why we on console are an alpha behind.

That said, MD5 sucks, but then this is not the first game in gaming history where progress can be lost. In fact, a corrupted save file can cause the same damage and more to any game. There are plenty of posts here in the forume that supply possible ways to avoid the dredded MD5.

As far as the console war spilling into the forums, in all honesty that is to be expected when the MD5 only affects one of the two consoles the game is on. The wider gaming world tends.to get lost in narrow subject of a single game on both consoles and PC. But then the best way to play this game is to.build the ultimate gaming computer, and run it on that PC.

In the end, you can either join the war, which includes arguing about why it shouldn't matter, or treat it the way it should be treated. Ignore it since the whole thing comes down to personal preference.

I think we should be able to craft them in this update

That would be cool, but there was nothing in the patch notes about new recipes.

Hi all,

Can we please keep this post on topic?

You're welcome to discuss the game, its release etc in a civil and respectful manner in a post in general discussion. This thread is for discussing the patch only.

Similarly debating PS4 and XB1 can be done elsewhere. People have many reasons for buying a certain console. Please do not start a discussion, or even argument over it here.

Thank you.

To those of you discussing the patch, I know there are a few questions out there and I will try get info for your when I can. With regards to new zombies, we will not be seeing them this update. Something that big would definitely get a mention in the notes.

all wars are unresolved conflict in the mind spilling out into physical reality , so this war i cannot see any where is all in your head , a comment is a comment is a comment people then take that and turn into something its not , reality is your in control of how you feel if some one says something you perceive as insulting you make the final decision to be insulted so take control and just get over it . and discussing performance differences between two consoles is not a console war , at some point you have to take accountability for your actions and reactions . the people making the comments aren't trying to start a war your are because you allowed your s self to be insulted and reacted overtly defensive .

It would be a pretty quick release if it were! Usually takes much longer for it to go through the xbox/Sony tests. I suspect they've got their wires crossed with patch notes released rather than the actual patch.

Actually a page or two ago Clare said unfortunately the new zombies will not be in this update. She also said something that big would of been in the notes. But hopefully we will get them soon like in a patch or something. I could be wrong but wouldn't see where a new world would have to be created to put new zombies in game. But then again they updated and took some zombies out in A16 due to a few reasons but maybe because of this they are waiting to add them to console.I really have no clue besides that this update will not have them.

It's a shame that we won't see any new skinned zombies just for a bit of variety. Still, lets be grateful for the great work that the devs are doing to bring us new content :) I'm looking forward to exploring the new POIs and want to go check out the new Navezgane.

Nothing on cops exploding without any indication of such? Dogs still OP as sin? Minibikes randomly catching on fire and being badly damaged?

Post pictures and all the information you can in the bug section of the forums. The full patch notes isn't out. Clare will post when she knows.
Yes I'm sure they know dogs are op, what I've been told they were op in a15 on pc then they patched them.
With physics problems like blocks randomly being destroyed when on level ground. Use frames around the area and it will fix itself.
Cops blowing up, idk maybe another zombie hit it? I've seen zombies randomly die but unsure what's the causes.

Besides the point, this isn't the area to post bugs. This post is to talk about the new update. Please read the rules on page one.

nope no bow yet but as i see it this is pretty much alpha15 on console , so we will see the compound-bow and other low memory items from alpha 16 , but time will only tell when that happens , but know this it will ! and no blueprints for the the machete but you can now buy machete from the traders and combine them

The console version will be as close to the PC gold version as possible once it has been released until then the console will only get stable ports of PC content . and depending on what console your playing great many bugs have been fixed (the PS4 tend to have less MD5 and Less MP disconnects) both version XB1 and PS4 have seen some bug fixes and loads of new content , but by nature you'll need to start a new game because New POI's and buildings cannot be added to a preexisting map as there is no blank or clean sector for the buildings to spawn in , if they did do that people would complain every up date that the new update spawned a new POI in the middle of their base and they lost everything

PS the the book bags and minibikes don't glitch out as much
