Hey Survivalist,
We’ve just released Alpha 17.1 B9 Stable.
Alpha 17.1 B9 Release Notes

As always TFP is interested in all constructive criticism and feedback, but what we're really looking for in this thread are the following:
  • Show stopping game play bugs (Hopefully with reproduction steps)
  • Crashes (Try and get reproduction steps and post your output_log.txt files - usually found here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\7 Days To Die\7DaysToDie_Data\output_log.txt - directly in your forum post. Note: You will find all output_logs time stamped there, even from old games. You can also attach your zipped up crash dump file too.)
  • Chunk Generation Bugs. People please give us the coordinates of where they were in the world when they run into a chunk generation error plus the game seed. Copy and pasting the error alone and the output log is not sufficient to help with a fix.

Here's how to opt in and play the latest experimental branch.

Open your steam client.
1. Click on Games/View Games Library
2. Right click ‘7 Days to Die’ and select properties
3. From the new popup dialogue box select the ‘BETAS’ Tab
4. Under ‘Select the beta you would like to opt into’ latest_experimental

The game will then update and download the latest experimental build Alpha 17 Experimental

Switching back to the latest main stable build is as easy as repeating steps 1-4 and on step 4 choose the option ‘None – Opt out of all Beta Programs’ and you’ll revert to the latest stable build.

Cheers Richard
