    Let me help you out Sillls. Faatal is playing a different version than you are. When he says “Right now” he means Alpha 17. Descriptions of what zombies do in your game aren’t proof that he’s wrong in what he says about spiders.

    I thought RWG is the "future" or rather said Big Feature of this Game, because of its Replay Value.

    Every Major Patch i visit Navezgane, spend 2 or 3 hours in it and move to RWG. Even if it gets expanded and Overhauled, it still has this Feeling that you saw it way to often before and want a Map full of Suprises.

    Dont get me wrong, im happily awaiting the new Navezgane and i will spend some hours exploring Perishton... And then go start RWG^^
    Navezgane is easier to work in. It loads up faster and the devs and testing team know where everything is if they want to teleport to a location to see how it is working in game. So much time would be wasted if they developed the game in a random map full of surprises. Once things are in they can be made available to randomgen.

    Yeh, I gotta say; loading rwg for testing is... time consuming.

    Faatal...
    With all the work being done to the code...will we get a bump up in the max 64 zombies in game? Will all the AI fixes and tweaking help get that number up?

    Would love to have a few more zombies wandering around.

    Regards,
    OUCH

    I see. Thanks.

    That's why I would like to see more videos please. Because this new game is becoming so different it's harder to understand what TFP's are talking about.

    It's like someone talking about a game that you haven't played and your trying to compare it to a game that you have.

    Thank you for taking the time to explain this Roland. But again, it would be great if we could see what you all are talking about.

    Yes I know what you mean plus it still has issues. One time the water did not match what was on the map and another time some of the traders were missing while others were duplicated in RG.

    Ok, glad to hear that RWG still gets some love too

    I really appriciate Immersion and Details that you probably only can achieve in a Hand crafted Map like Navezgane, but I love to explore, not to know what i will find.

    And if even half the Dungeons and Details you guys did fpr Navezgane can be seen in RWG later, im a Happy Man.

    HaHaHa. Yes I would like to play A-17 BUT that's not what I am talking about here. The videos are the one thing we have that we can use as a reference. Without them it gets harder to understand what TFP's are talking about.

    I don't need the video and got other games that I am helping with like Empyrion Galactic survival: Alpha EXPERIMENTAL 8.0 - Part IV.

    https://empyriononline.com/threads/a...part-iv.37664/

    Lots of issues, lots of fun.

    Anyways, a video now and then form TFP's would help us to know what the developers are talking about in 7D2D

    Is Navezgane bigger in A17?

    It could make a difference between being a "one off" deal or people seriously considering it a worthy long term experiance.

    Tough choices that have consequences that you have to live with are what make survival games more interesting to me.

    Larger inventories, perks and skills that can be sold back for xp, save files to revert the game to undo bad results, etc. are all ways that make choices not really matter and I’m against that kind of design.

    Players should agonize over choices and then deal with the consequences. If those consequences mean survival becomes harder then so be it.

    Small inventories mean you either do without or only loot some OR if you just have to have it all you make several trips. I, too, think several trips to get it all is tedious so I prioritize and only take the most important stuff and leave the rest and scrap a ton (even things I later regret having scrapped but...oh well).

    I recently did a playthrough where I filled every slot of my backpack with fiber gloves and so played with only my tool belt. I scrapped a glove every time I leveled up thus increasing my inventory size progressively. It was a lot of fun and resulted in stashes becoming a necessary component of survival. I used cars, tree trunks, and cupboards everywhere to stash extra stuff I used to carry. It required a lot more planning and meant I would often have to go empty my hands before doing something else.

    When I got to a whole row of slots I felt like a king.
    thats a good a ide... i like it!!!!

    P.S. On Chrome I use AdBlock and to be honest i forgot about this ads. For years.
    It's essential part for games without backtracking and with permadeath, so the choice of what to take with you is very important.
    In 7D2D, you can loot whole town and come back to take all looted stuff.

    Sure sure, is was just having some fun

    I've tried starting up Empyrion a few times, both alone and with friends... We actually played the Alpha exp 8.0.1 last...
    I gotta say though... Empyrion doesn't do it for me...
    Digging is horrible!!!
    Building is weird.
    It constantly feels laggy... Its subtle at first, but quickly becomes totally unbearable.

    Just my 2 cents.

    hello TFP team I would like to suggest something for the fans that we are waiting with a lot of alfa 17, in particular I would like to know the study of TFP who are behind this great game, a video of MM showing the team in their respective activities would be good see the work outside of cameras, meet the entire TFP team, deliver breadcrumbs to the hungry

    ..and maybe dropping down from trees

    As far as backpacks, now that I use the Simple UI Plus mod, I could never go back.
