    Ok, I see. I quess that depends what you consider a wow factor. All those systems are pretty awesome and though it is expected that we initially only get old buffs converted to new system, I won’t be discouraged to dream of all the possibilities TFP might (and the modders will ) implement al later development.

    Yeh the crux was that the majority of players, i.e. not us, wouldn't notice and would be upset.

    Will we ever see things like burning zombie setting wood blocks on fire? that might be interesting...
    Bandits? lol

    2017 - the only thing keeping bandits out right now are the janky animations.
    2018 - All animation redone, bandits delayed.

    This is the part most people don't understand about game dev. You have to get the tech working and working well before you can get really creative with the design around it. If you try it the other way you waste a lot of design time/resources on system that has fundamental flaws that need fixed.

    I don't mind reading through the complaints - there are some good arguments presented. It is the arrogance and ignorance that I glance over and could care less about. Passing judgement on TFP is not going to make the release come quicker and neither is complaining about the length of the wait. Those are boring posts lacking content therefore a waste of space. Make my bathroom break reading great again people! Use your brains and not your bad attitude to discuss the game and the elusive A17! I need another corny joke from Roland asap!
    Okay, I'll bite, but last time I tried this I damn near got crucified for it. What the hell... this place loves drama :-)

    What's the deal with vulkan integration and linux at this point?

    I've messed around with vulkan on a couple of distros and with some different hardware, the results were... mixed. I seem to remember a dev saying that in game vulkan isn't used but we have a note on the front page saying we have vulkan menus.

    What gives? Linux people are fine as long as they can learn to operate the menu blindly?

    Let the drama commence!

    Sounds like you are trying to win an argument/ bet against the moderator team...

    Madmole said that the game would probably go Beta after A17.

    Internally they talk about changes they will make in the next update to the game which they label A18.

    So here is what could happen next:

    1) After A17 is stable possibly by A17.2 they COULD do a few large updates of new content and features and call those 17.3 and 17.4 and 17.5 and then go to Beta and never have an A18. And so internally when the developers talk to each other now and say A18 they'll do this or that it would actually be in A17.3 or A17.4

    Then Madmole and the moderators would be correct and not false.

    2) After A17 is stable they could go into beta and the changes that they are talking about being for A18 would actually be for post release and then there would be no A18 and the game would go Beta after A17 and Madmole and the developers would be correct and not false.

    3) After A17 is stable the developers decide to go ahead and work on A18 and call it A18. In that case Beta would NOT be right after A17 but since Madmole always said "probably" it isn't strictly false and since the moderators were just repeating what they heard from Madmole they might turn out to be wrong but they aren't being false about it.

    What it comes down to is that the developers don't really care what they call it. Only people who want to scrutinize and put significant meaning into every phrase uttered so as to win arguments on the internet or to be able to come back later with an imagined "ah ha! Gotcha!" post are spending any amount of time worrying about it.

    Next is just the next step whatever it looks like and whatever it ends up being labeled.

    are bedrolls supposed to block bloodmoon spawns?
    had the dead zone set to 100
    day 21 horde would not spawn
    picked up bed and they started to spawn
    put it down and they would stop

    I thought they only stoped regular spawns and sleepers
    bug?

    - - - Updated - - -

    also if a dead zone of 100 blocks the horde that doesnt seem very far
    any chance a17 can push that distance back a bit?

    Mr. they have to post them to the investors, not the players. All companies have to post a "Profit and Loss" Statement. Review the laws for private businesses.
    I'm a little late to the party but what will he think when someone tells him he really doesn't own a copy of 7 Days, but only owns the right to access the game from Steam's library?

    Why not "Z17"? Is that overdone?
