    Why no one is doing anything for 7 days to die

    What is on with 7 days to die. What is it to have a update on a game that all we ask for. Why get into the game business if u don't to go through with a game that so great to play. Why someone just push the dam button and give the PS4 and Xbox there update.

    do you know anything about legal battles? anything about programming? how about porting? do you know anything at all about ANY of the topics I listed?

    all of those reasons...

    to quote Roland

    Iron Galaxy isn't going to port for free.
    Telltale isn't paying them to port any longer.
    TFP can't pay them to port yet.

    Because... PC first and always!!! Seriously though, I can imagine its a PITA to port every iteration of the various stages of the game, and there have been soooo many over the years. They need to focus on the PC first, get it where they like it and port updates to the final phase. Then from there they can just do the major updates to all platforms when finished. Thats just my guess, but I've been watching them progress since ver A4 and they've done amazing work. Still the best game of its genre out there. Havent seen anything come close. If you only have an Xbox or PS4, you have my condolences. I'd be pulling my hair out too in anticipation.

    The reality of the matter is these consoles aren't strong enough to really run this game. I wish it were different and they made a good attempt at it but the console is fighting like hell to even run that version, there's no way it will run A18. Next gen MAYBE, but I wouldn't count on it. Save up for a PC this go around, you have more freedom and just...more. You can get a mid range gaming PC or around 1000 bucks more or less.

    That would be my honest advice for all console players who want to really play this game.

    PC is great to play if that is your preference but is game is never spend a grand just so can play it no game is that great and I hate keyboard and mouse so canít play it on PC anyway I prefer console and hope I does get further advance on a new version or whatever but not holding breath. But have feeling they set date for it so far out that interest is lost and donít have to pay for console port but who knows will see

    You can get a halfway ok PC to play it on for about $300, and a mostly decent PC for $500. Your estimation of $1000 for a PC shows that you don't shop around or know hardware very well.

    Also, contollers are supported on the PC. You can just take the controller from your PS4 or X-Box, plug it into your PC, and game away.




    Really, the biggest issue is how ill-informed all the complainers are.

    You see.. thatís the thing. Iíve always read on here that console isnít strong enough to to support it. Iím gonna sound stubborn or something for this but.. why? Thereís so many others games out there with a larger content, graphics (which takes a lot of running), etc. For example, the call of duty games. They have so much content, more than 7. So, why is 7 such an ass to run on console? 7 doesnít have that great of graphics (Iím mentioning graphics a lot because it is one thing that makes games harder to run) but yet itís an ass to run. Thereís another game, The Forest, on my console, it takes up a storage of 4.41 GB, and 7D2D takes up 3.04 GB. Iím probably looking at the wrong thing but again, why the hell canít console run 7?

    I cover this in great detail in the Sticky thread.

    All of your other games don't require a lot of "work" from the console to calculate everything being rendered. Only the GPU is heavily used. 7 Days to Die is a fully 3D Voxel game. Each 1m block is rendered individually with structural integrity mechanics. One block in 7 Days uses about the same amount of processing power as the entire landscape for one of your other games. Now with that in mind, realize that the game is rendering close to a million blocks around you at once. Now add AI calculations to that, and other game mechanics.

    I've heard the root of all evil is money, maybe thats why? It really would not surprise me if it all boiled down to money. cost vs gain :/

    Hmm.. understood. My bad and apologies for the inconvenience. But to also say.. 7D2D is similar to Minecraft, no? The block is kind of similar. Iím just thinking, if the 3D Voxel format is difficult, or maybe the rendering that goes on with it, is there any way to help the process? Or is that time consuming or money costing?

    A lot of differences in minecraft and 7dtd. Build on a different engine for starters, texture differences, AI difference, mechanics in general difference such as minecraft allows blocks to not fall and 7dtd has to have that extra coding and resources to account for structures to collapse if not supported and such. Plus a lot more, so you add all that plus all the other stuff the current consoles can only handle so much. So it isn't really about the time or cost which is still probably a part of it but even with all the money in the world and all the time you can still only do so much with the specs you have in front of you. So with what all he said in the thread he made plus the little unprofessional things I said hope that helps understand that part of it for ya. But hopefully fingers crossed next gen will have enough specs to run the full version after it goes gold and is polished more. One more year for next gen and (just speculation here) hopefully within 2 more years this game will be out of alpha. So still a ways away but it is really is what it is type of thing.

    I snuck into TFP offices and pushed it a couple times last week but it doesn't seem to be hooked up to Tell Tale Games or Iron Galaxy anymore...


    (There might be a bit more to it than pushing a button after all)

    Ahaha good one. But you're missing a vital step: you need to push the blue button while riding a zipline. Since you're the only one in possession of one, you're the only one who can do it.

    You're the console players' only hope, Obiwan Rolandoli.
