    Post [08/30][Message from the Team] Patch 3 Update!

    Patch 3 has been submitted to Sony and Microsoft and is waiting approval from each.

    Below is the information passed onto me about what we can look forward to in Patch 3.

    -Clare

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    7 Days to Die [Console]

    Release Notes

    Patch 3

    PS4 Version 1.04

    XB1 Version 1.0.4.0


    Hey all! We are pleased to announce the arrival of Patch 3 for 7 Days to Die on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This patch contains quite a few improvements and optimizations. As always, the list below includes a lot—though not all—of the Patch 3 fixes and improvements:


    Stability and Performance

    * Fixed an issue that caused a much higher volume of disconnects from Online Multiplayer games.

    * Fixed an issue that was preventing zombie corpses from turning into gore blocks as quickly as they are intended to which caused drastic perf slowdown during horde battles.

    * Implemented a system to back up save files on PS4 so that, if a user’s save data becomes corrupted due to a crash during the saving process, they will lose very little progress. This fix will only work for any future saves that become corrupted; it will not be able to recover data for users who have run into save data corruption prior to Patch 3.

    * Fixed a crash that would sometimes occur while using the crafting menu.

    * Fixed a crash that would occur when a player would take a part of a minibike while another player was driving it.

    * Fixed an issue that was causing more frequent crashes in local multiplayer games.

    * Fixed a crash that would occur when the first player for a local multiplayer game would quit out as soon as the second player joined.

    * Fixed an unresponsive state that would occur on XB1 if the player removed the controller, suspended the game, added the controller back, and attempted to remove it again while on the main menu.

    * Fixed a crash on PS4 that would sometimes occur when dismissing a controller disconnect pop-up.

    * Fixed a crash that would occasionally occur when accessing loot containers.

    * Fixed a crash that would occur on PS4 while loading a map after setting the system’s language to Arabic or Turkish.


    Art and Animation

    * Fixed an issue where the lighting update in Patch 2 caused lighting inside buildings to be too dark.

    * Fixed an issue introduced in Patch 2 that caused the Mining Helmet light to be too dark and have a dark ring obstructing the player’s view.

    * Fixed an issue where the light on the Mining Helmet would constantly move and rotate back and forth.

    * Fixed an issue where having motion-blur on while riding a minibike would cause the character model to shake violently.

    * Fixed an issue where the texture on the terrain would occasionally fail to load.

    * Fixed a number of miscellaneous issues with character models and animations.


    Audio

    * Fixed an issue where SFX for thunder would play at too high a volume.

    * Fixed an issue where SFX for rain would play at too high a volume.


    Gameplay

    * Fixed an issue where the layout of the D-Pad controls was inconsistent across items. The controls will now generally go as follows:

    DOWN: “Drop”

    RIGHT: “Favorite” and “Scrap”

    LEFT: “Recipe,” “Repair,” and “Use”

    UP: “Equip” and other, context-sensitive controls


    * Changed horde spawning slightly to ensure each of the players in a MP game will get attacked by a horde, no matter where they are in the world.

    * Added an improvement so the player can hold “X” (on PS4) or “A” (on XB1) on the left arrow to increase the number of items to craft when crafting.

    * Fixed an issue where hordes would vanish and fail to respawn if a player quit out of the game in the middle of a blood moon.

    * Fixed an issue where doors to pre-existing buildings and POIs would respawn after having been destroyed by the player.

    * Fixed an issue where it would briefly be snowing on world load, regardless of current biome.

    * Fixed an issue where the minibike would occasionally stop on steep slopes.

    * Fixed an issue where time would pass in the game while in the “Building Environment” portion of the world loading sequence.

    * Fixed an issue where structures near a large lake in Navezgane would collapse on player contact.

    * Fixed an issue on XB1 where cobwebs would spawn when a player would place a Minibike Chassis.

    * Fixed an exploit where a player could duplicate wooden crates by building a diving-board-like structure and standing on top of a crate placed near the end of it.

    * Fixed an issue where the menu cursor would not snap to search bars.

    * Fixed an issue where the pipe bomb would fall to the player’s feet when thrown.

    * Slightly increased the number of bird nests that spawn into the game.

    * Added the version number to the main menu screen.

    Thank you for all of your continued support and enthusiasm! We are excited to keep working with you to improve your experience with 7 Days to Die.

    Hey RedMenace, the patch needs to be completed before it is submitted for approval, so once it gets approval it should be ready to go, but it can take some time to get through that process. Once I know more about when it is going Live, I will let you guys know.

    Yes Didn't sound too "solved" on the connection issues though. :/

    These are some pretty good fixes and i'm glad for that!
    But I have two major wishes regarding this game
    1)I wish that the console versions get a bulky fps refinement 'cause every horde night,the game is just UNPLAYABLE,even when you see none of the zombies..Also,spontaneous and unjustified stattering during ANY time and place,can be a really annoying habit..
    2)I wish the console versions get all the features and updates the pc version gets because otherwise would be a great dissapointment and FRAUD towards us ps4 and xone players..
    Just keep up the good work!! :-)

    Very pleased about this patch, I know you're improving things the best you can, I just hope this improves the lag/stuttering issues especially on horde nights.. Great work guys, thanks for the update. 😉

    How about our mini bikes disappearing after server crashes in single player and multiplayer on Xbox one?

    Hi clare, great news about the patch. Thanks. Just out of interest though does this patch address the stuttering and major lag ? And also has the draw distance been increased at all ? I'm not talking distant terrain like alpha 15 I mean bringing the draw distance in line with the current pc version?

    Thanks again

    1) Stability fix #2 on the list (zombies to gore blocks) is supposed to address the horde nights being unplayable.

    2) How does your wish make it a 'FRAUD'?
