SUMMER UPDATE #2



https://youtu.be/mPKDbZ7ucf8

Hi all!

It's happeniiiiiing! We couldn't wait to share it with you! Patch 11 will be released tonight at around midnight PST, which is 7am UTC/GMT+1 Sept 6th!

The hype train is still trundling along over here, why not hop on board as we gear up for Summer Update #2!
https://7daystodie.com/forums/showthread.php?72863-Choo-Choo&p=725579#post725579

I know some of you asking Qs about the patch in the last thread, I will do my best to get those answers for you asap. The biggest Q seems to be about New Zombies - This would be something they would put in the notes, so I'm afraid we wont be seeing them this time around. 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.

So here...we...go!

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

It’s here! Patch 11 launches today! It’s time for all of you to go nuts with the new features! We can’t wait to see what you create. Enjoy and happy surviving!


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.

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 caused an unresponsive state in a local multiplayer game if both controllers were disconnected while the game was suspended

Also last update took forever because they forgot to send the patch in. Maybe forgot to upload a file. Maybe just sent in the patch notes. Who know. Definitely looking forward to another free update.

ETA 60days till fall update 1?

Thanks Claire and All the guys and gals working hard on this game!

Is the colliseum only going to be on Nav?
Most likely, yes. This is due to the size of the prefab, and the way the rwg mixer works. It's the same way on the PC. Only in Navezgane.

Those buildings came with A16, if I'm correct. We will not be seeing those buildings in this update

PantsThief
09-06-2017, 12:16 AM
This may be the list of new POIs. This is what PC got for A15.
I may be wrong, but I may be right. Here's the list.

5 new unique Trader Settlements
Grand Ostrich Hotel
2 new roadside hotels
Football stadium (Navezgane Only)
Auto Parts Store
New hidden bomb shelter
Oil refinery
Funeral Home
Prison
Red Mesa Government Installation
Indian Cliff Dwellings (Navezgane Only)

Guys... come on. Let's not start asking for A16 stuff ALREADY. Paint, compound bows, traps, etc. TFP know we want these things, and they've proven they are busting their butts to keep console happy. Also, Clare reiterates EVERY chance she gets, they ARE working on the md5 crash errors... Enjoy the new additions and trust in our fun pimps!

Not like it's been taking them too long to roll out updates for us. I'm sure we will see the new A16 stuff within the year. (Probably)
But as we all know some people just aren't happy with what there given.

I honestly didn't believe it when someone told me in a stream, so glad I actually checked here before saying nonsense. I started a new map Monday, guess I should've waited, lol.
I'm guessing we're getting a15 traders as there is no mention of the stash perk?
Definitely looking forward to looting some new buildings. Nice work team :)

09-06-2017, 03:17 AM

We're not getting electricity yet, (unless i completely missed that, lol) so the wire tool would be pointless

PlayStation 4
Press and hold the PlayStation button on your controller.
Select "Turn Off PS4".
Let the PlayStation 4 to fully power down and wait for 10 to 20 seconds.
Restart the PlayStation 4.

Turn off your Xbox One.
Once the indicator lights on the front of the Xbox One and the console's power brick are off, unplug the power brick from the back of your console.
Wait at least 30 seconds.
Plug the power brick back into your Xbox One and turn it on.

Or is there another thing we should do?

I know on PS4 boot in safe mode and rebuild database is like a defragment a drive. I may just run that. But is there another thing we should do?

It's just how it's packaged. So on PS4 during the preparation of the download of any game it's compressing the file. So say a 20gb file when starting to download will maybe be 1-2gb. What I've seen.

So my first trader I visited didn't have the book but another one did. I do believe it is only found/bought from them. Hope that helps.
Also no mans land now does have land mines. Haven't seen it myself but on pc A16.
And I hope the dogs are just a bug in your game. Oh how I hate them things. There so OP.

Is it just me or does the game look better? Not sure about the dogs though, on nomad setting I arrowed one 3 times before be began biting the car I was standing on and not wanting blown up..... Again, I tried to backpeddle away while shooting. I got eaten. When I returned to the area, with nothing, the same dog noticed me from a very long distance. Jumping upon a rock I punched it in the face killing it. Never killed a dog day one before, is that about normal for their toughness?

Nice, I wrote it down in my note book. You have definitely been busy last night to explore all that! How's the landscape? Not to flat is it?

Side question tho, when visiting the trader. Was the corn stacked 2 high? I've posted pictures in the bug section. Just wondering if anyone else is having the same thing?

Is that canyon house generated in or is that built by someone to show what you could do with it? Also, if it is generated, is it in Navezgane or in Random Gen.

Edit: It is in Navezgane, looking now to check if it's in Random Gen. Would be a nice place to have a little house in, pretty nice and big inside.

made a seed, called Asher, which seems to be a good combo seed. East side of map, nice cities and towns, lots of hills with roads going through em. West side, water and more water, with long roads over the water, and islands. Liking it.

Liking the update so far, no crashes on xbox, and is it my imagination, or is the game running much smoother? Seems like my shots and swings go where I aim em more often, less delay.

My seed ANewWorld, has spit in my face by putting my first trader in a wasteland as well. I'm only a day in, and the only road appears to curve from the wasteland, through a small portion of the Prairie I started in, back into the wasteland.

Fortunately, I found a church for a first base, and there is a trailer park not far away.

The MD5 error is a work in progress for the developers. With each crash trigger they fix (and, as Krotos said, a few were fixed in this update) the fewer MD5 errors occur. From what I've experienced so far this update looks a lot more stable than previous versions.

I'm picturing a bed room in th e rafters. But those two bottom blocks being cement makes it way easy to fortify. It all doesn't hurt that my trader is less than a km across the street.

Thanks so much for bringing this update to consoles/ps4. I'm so happy to see the console version looking closer to the PC version. From my understanding the end goal is to make both the same from a quote I read before. If you guys can do that then that's fantastic. If not then I understand that it's likely due to some hardware issue. Either way the game is fantastic and one of my all time favorite games(been gaming for 32 years) and definitely my favorite zombie survival/survival game. You all have done a fantastic job and created a truly great game. Thank you for that. Also to I don't know if anyone else pointed this out yet as I haven't read all the comments but there is a typo/double post in the OP in the mining section where it repeats. Not sure if there is additional info that needs to go there. I mean it don't really matter just thought I'd mention it as I would hope anyone would do the same for me.

Anyone else talking about bugs on this thread, have you posted bug reports in the appropriate way? The team can't fix the bugs if they don't know about them and Clare and Ro won't be checking this thread as often as bug reports. Give as much info as possible, even if its identical to someone else's report, that way the team know its a specific trigger.
If you have already reported them properly, kudos and I'll go back to my hole :)

You must be having bad luck, in my game(map name: MyWorld) I have found a regular city with a Working Stiff, Crack a Book, Shotgun Massiah, and Pop n Pills, among many other things. So I know they popup in random gen games.

There's usually at least one in the hub city and you'll find them in towns and at crossroads - you may just have to explore a bit further.

I have to post this... I'm seriously hoping someone else has experienced this. I was approaching the front door to my base on day 2 or 3 (a forge house). I left the door open before I left (cardinal sin), and thought I heard a zombie in my house. When I got closer, I SWEAR I thought i saw a legless screamer crawling out of my base! But not crawling, like SUPER-SPEED crawling (i.e. The Ring kinda crawl)! It lasted only a second and vanished before I could get a good look. Idk if this is a bug with the new update or what, but I freaked. I've logged well over 500 hours in this game, so idk if it was a bug or if I was seeing stuff. I am NOT making this up! Anyone else encountered weird stuff since the update?

Hi all!

Glad to hear you're all enjoying the update!

Just a reminder, for those of you having issues please do NOT post bug reports in this thread. I will not chase them here. In fact, I cannot chase them here. Responding to multiple people at once in a thread is messy, add into that players just chatting about the update and you could be searching through pages to piece together a convo. It's easier for players who may experience the same issue to find help too and well as that when reporting issues to the team, I will often link them to the forum post about the bug in case there is a detail I missed so keeping all the info together isn't just for me it's for everyone.

So please, if you have an issue, post in the Console Bug Report section and I will get to your issue asap. Please note I visit them in order from oldest to newest.

Thank you,
Clare

So, in last night's session, we finally made it to the Trader. We had to cross miles of wasteland (no mines, thank God) and swim a distance (during which I got got eaten by a swimming zombie dog), but we made it. Bought some ammo and a few other essentials then headed out and soon discovered a small town.

I though finding the sweet new church POI was cool but then found out that just across the road was the Brothers Theatre, a trailer park and, just down the street, a prison! The new POI's are so cool!

So, got to ask... has anoyone started utilising the Prison as a base of operations? It looks nice and strong but it's BIG! I'm wondering if it's maybe too big for a two player local co-op pairing to successfully defend and maintain. Anyone occupied a prison and holding it?

I thought the same thing. Looks awesome & very fortified but just too big. Maybe a 4 player game could defend it properly, definitely not on a single player or even split coop would be a challenge

As I have not found a prison on rwg on console yet but A16 on pc I have made a base at the prison on my private game and I'm alone on it. I am able to keep it up and defend it fine. Might be different when A17 comes and get that holly cow macaroni monster zombie (keeping the words PG here lol) then I might not be able to keep the base up.

Maybe it will be a little different on console as the contoles are different don't move around as fast. I don't know but if I can find one on console in a area I like or seed I like then I will try it....... I know right now I am wanting to turn the football stadium on pc into a base and use the football field as a garden lol but I can't seem to find one on rwg yet. But I been busy with console here lately so not put to much thought into it. Anyway based on experience from pc prison it is possible so I will say for now it is possible to do. It is however a lot of work no time to goof around as you are always working and such but this is solo. I think with two it wouldn't be that bad and of course more would be even less as bad.

edit to add that the prison really isn't much different then the military compound the one console has had with the two buildings, tents, towers and the wall around it. Before this update I use it as a base and rebuild it and such just fine. So I would think the prison should be ok as well.

The prison seems great, but i tried. Not much room for crafting/ storage indoors, and the prison walls aren't as strong as you'd think. Plus too big for one or even two people. I suggest a church or even the trailer park (believe it or not). It comes with 2 trailers already upgraded to stainless steel!

I'm living in a prison, in a city. I'm only at day 8 so i haven't had much need to defend it yet. I've build two catwalk to the two nearest building. One of them a shotgun massiah, which i used for the day 7 horde night. I think, My plan is to rebuild the prison, with funnels to lead the zombies into the yard and use that as a killing field.
But we'll see maybe i get some new inspiration. I'm playing 120 min days so i still have some time.

If any of you have any ideas let me know.

I noticed the SS trailers! They're awesome at 12,000 durability but they have the opposite problem of the Prison: too small. I've connected a couple with a catwalk though and that might help alleviate the space issue being able to move freely between trailers.

I was thinking the central field would be good to build in, make like a keep surrounded by castle walls, kind of thing. The outer walls would definitely need double lining, though. It still seems quite big but might be worth a go. We've the trailer park as a fall back.

I have not found any of those yet on console. But they should spawn in towns or the hub city. I could be wrong but I don't think you will find those on the dirt paths. I do know for a fact you will find them in towns and the city that is where I have seen them on pc.

from what i remember from a15 on pc the strip club and red mesa didnt spawn in random gen they were new poi's in navezgane. but i might have just be really unlucky in not finding them coz i never found any in countless hrs of play lol. so happy hunting and if you do find them can i have the coordinates, im playing that seed too.

they do now in a16 a lot (they are everywhere lol) so we might not see those until we get any sort of new a16 random gen update... so in about a years time :D

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).


I have NO trader in my world. I did random gen and have more than 1 trader post. So traders posts but no trader inside also its closed 24/7. I had to hop the fence. I can destroy the trader post as well. Also i get nonstop hordes.

It does not sound like you found the traders post. It sounds like you found one of the bandits place or whatever. That place is not where the traders are and that place is like any other poi. Traders are located on one of the dirt paths not in a town unless for some very rare seed you might of found. But they shouldn't spawn in a town only off the dirt roads. As said they shouldn't but this is console and does have some bugs and such so I'm not going to be the one to say they will not spawn in a town. Just from what you said it does sound like one of the bandits place those seem to be getting mixed up with traders place from many people. also from what some have reported don't leave the door open when you leave because right now that seems to be causing a glitch with the trader. If I was on the pc right now and not my phone I would post some pictures of the traders place but I guess you could use Google for now.

I've been lurking around here for a while now. But I think it is time to come out of the shadows for this (and all of Claire's stolen Blueberry pies).

My GF and I have been playing this for a while now. We found a prison rather early on Our New playthrough. This Works well as a base With just 2 persons! At first we started to put up an extra wall outside, and I've just started building my fall trap at the main entrance with a reinforced drawbrige as our main entry to the base. We've removed all of the fence in the courtyard for some easy access iron and for a place for our garden and forest, while we use the prison for all our equipment.

We've only had Zed's on the inside once, after we forgot to remove our wood box stair up to the wall..

Further plans is to reinforce the second wall with iron and concrete, and place wood logs in 2 rows in front of that, fully upgraded of course, which hopefully will help us with the strongest hoards. So far, we've had 3, and we took them rather easy with the fall pit and my GF's excellent marksmanship from on top of the wall with the hunting rifle and my sledgehammer to the brains after they fall.

Will try to post a pic in the afternoon or evening after work today.

And for some reason my computer/keyboard/something wants Capital letters all around, so sorry for that!

On pc I kinda did the same with some differences and I am alone on it, well was alone I don't have that map anymore lol. I don't like the wood spikes so I never use them. I don't like digging pits so I don't do that either. I have tried both and personal both look terrible for my taste. I did build a 2nd wall from the main one, put iron bars around for a catwalk because I can shoot through it from above them. Then a few blocks out I build a minibike ramp then put a draw bridge up so I can get in and out that way. The inside I added to the building tomake it look more like a house and not all but some cells I transferred to different things and some combined them. Then the courtyard I used as my garden. Did some other stuff but anyway as I said before it is possible to do alone, so two can definitely do it or 3 or 4.

If its at the bunker at 505 S / 1333 W there was a thread about it a few days ago but its cool you found it without the heads up.
If not and theres another one then i think i will start searching.

Only ever found this type of bunker on one random seed called Rayah and it seems to spawn you very near it everytime you start a new game its at 747 S /1557 E

Yeah someone brought it up in a post in general discussion I think or maybe a few pages ago on this one I don't remember. I found one so far on my seed in a really good location. Across the street about a house or two down is the other bunker but it is all open area between them besides one of those two story general stores or whatever. I thought about it hard and was going to connect the two together underground and such but I found my base on the other side of the map lol. I don't mind a underground base but will pick above ground in a heart beat.

If I keep the seed long enough I might make it my base for that area of the map.

I have to admit, while I'm very grateful for the update I'm really not enjoying the mines being in hub towns now :( My hubby and I have been playing for ages and loving the game, but after starting a new seed for the updates and dying 5 times for me and 4 for him due to a combination of dogs, ferals and mines (mainly mines that we can't see)it got to be a bit much. I totaly understand it's supposed to be tough to survive, but we're only playing on Nomad and find it takes a lot of the fun out of it when you die repeatedly no matter how careful you think you're being. We were so frustrated by the last death last night that we just shut the game right off and decided to take a break for a while :(

I know it is frustrating but we been dealing with it for a long time on pc so when console finally added it I guess those that play both are used to it now. So in time you will get used to it in a way. It still gets brought up time to time on pc threads lol. I would just recommend staying out of the hub until you are fully prepared in later game stages it does make it easier to deal with. Also stay on roads and don't go off road unless going into the stores/buildings. One other thing if you don't wanna wait till late game use this to get used to where they are and use them to your advantage. Example if you know where they are have the zombies blow them up lol. Nothing is really in the hub city I can't find in other towns. So I don't even bother with them to much.

I know the PC and Console editions are different but does Update 11 put the console version at parity with PC Alpha 15? Would it be difficult to share that kind of info with each of the patch notes?

These last 2 patches have been fantastic. I hope this is a sign that patches will be a bit more significant for Console from here on out, but I understand that much of that has to do with what happens when the code is ported to console.

Keep up the great work all around!

I can say one thing I would have liked to see added for Consoles and that's removing the dead zone or giving the option to tweak the acceleration/deadzone. It just seems too large, and the acceleration is off somewhere. I can't seem to find comfortable sensitivity. I still love the game, and hope to get it on PC soon. At level 100+ the game still surprises me and I die from time to time. Heat stroke killed me recently.'haha, said no problem, I will just out run these things... then I was running slower and slower.
Lastly, I can avoid a teleporting death if I turn off the game(holding start - close app) on my ps4-pro soon as I hear they dying music and reload the game. I loose my stats and drop whatever I had set(toolbelt) but I am feet from where I was. Helped when I stepped on mine and didn't want to transverse half way down the map on foot to get my things :)) doesn't help if swarmed and you come back and they are going to swarm you again with no toolbelt :)))

We're almost on par with the pc a15. I do believe we are really only missing the new zombies. We even have some small a16 stuff

Also some kind of map preview. It might not make it to console but one can only wish. I said it before I would even run a map preview on a separate app so it is the only thing running not with the game. It would be a greater possibility to get it to run that way on console then with the game running with it. Also the A15 Map previewer would be good enough for console. Yeah the new one for A16 looks good and would be nice to have but it is what it is for console. Guess it is what it is anyway because it probably wont happen anyway lol. But I could be wrong but I think those are about the only two things missing can't remember. At least besides the obvious more towns and comand options and such that for sure will never be on console.

Now I'm strictly console & am not familiar with this map preview I've heard mentioned a few other times.

Does this mean you get a peek of the map before you explore it? If so, doesn't that kinda ruin the surprise of exploring or even the concept of random gen?

Just my thoughts....

Depends on what you do with it guess it could in that point of view.

Some of the threads have pictures of what it looks like. If you go to pc seeds on the first few pages you can see what the A16 map preview looks like. I personally don't like it but I think they basically did it that way so you could actually point out bugs more clear with actual coordinates, name and I think it gives like a number or something. Anyway I liked the A15 map preview better for what I personally used it for. I didn't really look at the dirt paths or what buildings was where I used it to see how much water and size of biomes. People have different taste for different things. Some might like random to just be that random and deal with what you have. I personally want to play on a random map that looks like something I will enjoy. So I look to see how much water and biomes layout. It saves so much time for me and what I'm kinda looking for. On pc it takes a few minutes to load up a map. When playing I spend hours before I find out if I keep playing a bad seed or make another one. So personally would prefer taking a few minutes to find a seed I might enjoy more then something I will not enjoy. But like I said I don't zoom in to see what buildings are where or what dirt roads lead to what. So I still don't know what I'm looking for. I guess I know about where to go as I kinda seen the towns that showed up but it is still a mystery for me personally as for what I use it for.

So just depends on what you use it for and how you feel about it I guess.

Faskar, spoiler image below!!! Thanks for sharing!

Billion Dollar Club looks pretty damn good! Think I'll restart, but man it takes so much longer to get going in A16!

This is what you see in A16 map previewer

You can zoom in if you wish and can get more details but as I said above I don't use it for that I pretty much see what is in this picture and decide if I want to play the seed or not. Like I said it just saves me time personally.

Good points. That makes complete sense. I have played some pretty crappy seeds before & that preview tool woulda saved me some frustration.
