    Announcement A18.2 b5 will soon be stable!

    Good evening!

    Alpha 18.2 b5 will be switching to stable Wednesday around noon CST.

    If you want to play earlier, you may opt in to latest_experimental until then.
    If you do not want to switch yet, you can select the Alpha 18.1 branch in steam
    If you need to backup modded files, use this time to do so, please.
    We are not aware of any savegame breaking issues, but as always encourage you to start over.

    Warning: Do not overload your forge (>30k) by smelting in new resources while queueing up recipes and cancelling them. This will likely result in a chunk reset and part of your base will be gone. A fix will be deployed to experimental soon.

    With this version we introduced:
    1. a fix for our users running AMD HD 5000 & 6000 cards
    2. a new option (terrain quality) that will allow players to gain FPS

    For feedback and balancing suggestions, please go to our feedback thread.

    For ideas outside of balancing please visit our dev diary.

    For any bug reports and the latest known issues please visit our bug report thread now links to stable thread.

    Enjoy your your long weekend!

    What is this long weekend you speak of? The only long weekends I am aware of these days are the ones where I do not get to play 7Days.

    The tired man wrote some nonsense there! Shame on me.

    ? Isn't that central time? They are an hour behind me so it is currently 5:50 am. That means it is is 4:50 am central time. So that would be 7 hours from now to be noon or am I missing something?

    Central Standard Time (CST) is 6 hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This time zone is in use during standard time in: North America, Central America. This time zone is often called Central Time.

    I think itís a psychological thing.

    Any update even if it crosses from experimental to stable will be if maybe that 1% better and therefore epic in every way.

    Kinda alot of people don't play or refuse to opt into experimental. They keep playing on their current stable game til the next stable is released.

    In the case of dedicated servers I can see where this matters. I'm excited and cannot wait but if you are playing on a dedicated you do not have much of a choice.

    Well stable IS experimental in this case. That was my point. Serverowners can just install experimental and they will have stable as soon as /the label/ (nothing more) stable is stuck on it. Same goes for client. You opt in to experimental and get stable.

    Cheers
