    Alpha 16 Experimental B105 is out!

    Hey Survivalist,
    We’ve just released Alpha 16 Experimental B105 and could really use your help finding the last remaining big issues. 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.)
    • Game Stage Feedback (We want to know how your challenge was based on the size and levels of your group)
    • XP and Progress (How does the player progression feel now)
    • Sleeper Feedback - How are the location enemies feeling and playing?
    • Stealth Feedback - Do enemies detect you and/or wake up in a plausible manner?



    We don’t want incompatibility bugs with alpha 15.2 so please remember to start a new game with each experimental update.


    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 16 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.

    Official Alpha 16 Release notes!



    Cheers Richard


    KNOWN ISSUES (No more reports needed, thank you)

    Floating Terrain Issues
    Mouse control issues
    Hunted Status not working properly
    Vultures falling through the world when shot out of the air
    Lower wood harvesting amounts with no overkill bonus for your Day 1 stone axe is intended. It's not a bug.
    Pigs are legacy. No reports for them are needed.
    Clipping issues with bears, wolves, and spider zombies
    Ability to select locked textures


    Important Server Config Info

    There are new options in the server cfg that need to be added for Blood Moon Enemy. Compare it to the server cfg file found in your 7 days directory.

    enemysensememory also got completely removed
    enemyspawnmode is now true/false and not a number

    As veterans know I'm a true nazi when it comes to this thread. Please remember to keep your posts limited to bug reports and direct questions to the devs (ie you're not sure if something is a bug or is intended). "Thank you" posts are appreciated and should be made in the dev diary thread. If you want to discuss some feedback you read here do it in the dev diary thread and not here. I will be keeping this thread clean. Anything not approved will be moved to the dev diary thread.

    Rants and rude complaints will result in being banned until stable is released. If you can't handle the heat of experimental then please wait for stable. Excited to see what all of you can find and stress test.

    If you can post your output log to pastebin and give a link that would be helpful

    (I'll update this post as I go):

    1. I think the mouse sensitivity might be off. My mouse is all over the place even though I turned it all the way down. (I also tried interface sensitivity, no effect).
    2. Game crash when changing field of view
    3. (I feel like someone said there would be a new title menu? There's not one).
    4. The water is pink! And definitely not water! (It turns into water if you get close enough)
    5. The "tab" button is delaying/being glitchy for some users
    6. Pigs are walking and grazing on water
    7. We fell through the map! And this time you can't hit escape to get out. When I fell through, it put me back up on top. When my boyfriend fell through, it kept looping him eternally and he had to shut off the whole game (this happened every time he fell through).
    8. There are floating objects (rocks and pieces of wood).


    AWESOME THINGS: Distant POI's look GREAT. Ran into a hungry/fat lady sleeper zombie and she scared the crap out of me. Everything looks so much better.

    There is a second mouse setting now for the interface, try that one

    Check your server cfg to make sure it has the blood moon spawning information in it. If it doesn't, you will need to manually update it. If this is a rented dedicated server, you can copy your server's information over to the blank one found in your 7 Days To Die Directory, and then replace the one on the server.

    We have a peer to peer session working with no issues.
    Having issues with Dedicated Server hosted by lowlatencyservers.com

    Yes it had the experimental update ability.
    Server does not show up in the server browser.
    Attempting to connect to it by IP / Port we get error: Could not retrieve server info.

    I am not sure what OS the host is using, but I believe its windows.output_log (4).txt

    Did you check to be sure the new server cfg is in play for the server? There are new options in there that need to be added for Blood Moon Enemy. Compare it to the server cfg file found in your 7 days directory.

    enemysensememory also got completely removed
