    MD5 Base Reset.

    Rather than crying about it I'd like to share the circumstances of my latest base reset due to the MD5 Error.

    Platform: Xbox One

    Mode; Private game on Random Gen.
    Day 13, I chose to build my base out in the open as I've noticed that the md5 error happens most often in the prefab buildings. I started to dig into the ground and I built my normal base consisting of a space underneath log spike traps. I had about six forges and had done quite a bit of mining off to the side of my base rather than directly underneath it. I had excavated quite a bit of ground to the side of my base and I just started to build an underground farm when my game crashed for about the third time during this play through on restarting the game I found that the ground had completely reset and my base was completely gone.

    My observations with this error are that every time this has happened to me I have had a wide open space from mining underneath my base so am I experienced one of the major causes is having big Open Spaces from mining underneath my base. From my experience and what I've seen from others building in the gas station prefabs usually will result in an md5 error so this should be avoided. Also I would recommend trying to build mines a decent distance away from your base as something about having the huge open pit mines sometimes will cause the ground to reset.

    I apologize for any errors in this writing I use the talk-to-text feature as I didn't feel like typing this all out on my phone.

    Angry Game crashed again, took half my base with it

    Since the last update, this has been happening way too often to be playable. I literally spent a week gathering materials and building my base up. Then all the sudden the game crashes and my base has literally been chopped in half, with one half being gone....and it happened to be the half that held my newly build work bench, all my forges and about half of all my weaponry and food. I had issues with crashing and such before the last major update, but it was not anything I couldn't handle. Now, since the last update it happens all the time. I bought this game for my daughter and told 5 friends to purchase the game too and every single one of them has had similar things happen to them. I can deal with lag, I can deal with being kicked from the game from time to time. But I cannot deal with spending hours of my life building something, only to have it vanish for no good reason. What makes matters worse is, I was in the process of building and all my weapons were in weapon box. So now im left with half a base, totally empty save for one chest with some random stuff in it...and a single pistol with a full clip. So basically, I would have to start over totally fresh again. When is this being fixed? Any solid dates? I have pushed people into getting this game hardcore, because when it works it's a wonderful game. However, it no longer works and now everyone feels like it was wasted money. I cant bring myself to go and rebuild again, knowing tomorrow it might just vanish. This is an important matter than everyone I know is having and I hope it is fixed soon.

    sad

    I totally agree with the poster's views. You spend weeks (If youre lucky to get that far) building something only to have it vanish. That is totally broken and seems to have gotten much worse since this last update that supposedly fixed issues. I had multiple people purchase the game as well when I first learned about it and now I look like a fool that had a handful of people waste their money on a broken game. The fact that it has been doing it for awhile now with no solid news from the makers as to when they will fix it is very disheartening. All we get is an "oh we are sorry and we are looking into it". That feeling you get when you just get swept under the rug...

    I need your help

    Hi, my gamer tag on Xbox one is sound logic with the o's being (zero's). Anyway I got into this game after watching neebs gaming on YouTube play, since then I've been able to get my manager at work to watch neebs gaming and to try the game. We have bee b playing the game to day 66 and had a really good really strong base of op going. And the Game decided to crash, the stuff we built disappeared and the buildings we leveled re-spawned. Taking away parts of our base and pyramid and our gear and food and ammo and crafting stations. I still really like this game on the Xbox one but I don't know how much more of this I can take. This is the 2nd time it has happened and I'm fairly sure it's nothing to do with either me or my friends connections. We lost so much it's actually devestating. Any of the communitys input and knowledge on the matter is welcome here and I hope to even see a response from funpimps. Thank you.

    Does that happen to everyone that reports a crash?

    For me it's the character reset that's killing the the game not come across my Base been wiped yet just sick to death of leveling up to over 100 to be reset back to 0 it's got to be the worst bug the game has some of the development team need to sit and play this game themselves for hours on end to see what am taking about all you get is there looking into it but I have herd that for the last 9months these bugs should be there main focus and not release a patch until they have found the cause of these bugs hope I don't have to wait another 9months

    Hi Jamie87,

    At the moment there is no date set for when this issue may be resolved. It is something I have brought up to the team and the developers are investigating. Unfortunately this may not be of great comfort to players who are experiencing this issue currently, but every measure has been taken to insure this has been given the proper due diligence.

    Thanks,
    Ro

    Still loosing games

    This reset problem has only gotten worse since the last update. And no it is not a comfort to hear, Day after day, that you are working on it. After a year of that we mostly find that hard to believe. Not mad, just tired of reading the same answer, and yes I am sure you are tired of hearing the same complaints, but if the problem were fixed or at least an attempt was made we might feel better.

    I think the numbers must look better on your end because people have just quit playing, all my friends have. But I am stubborn, it is my goal to get pass day 51, havenít yet, on the last 14 game tries. And I donít report them because, well, why?? The stats are the same as everyone elseís, as soon I try to mine whether close to a base or not; whether I build in a prefab or from scratch, about day 51 or before my screen goes black and when I log back in half of everything is gone. Of course my screen goes blank lots of times before that too, but it takes a bit for it to work up to taking all you have.

    I get that you hired new people, but before you make it bigger shouldnít you make it better, as in work better??? Graphics are great but not if they donít work.

    Multiple crashes/1 partial house-base reset

    So I've had multiple crashes back to Xbox dashboard playing either local 1 and 2 player. The crashes happen more often when playing 2 player but happen almost always when playing for a few hours on local single player. I haven't noticed a pattern when it happens because it's always at random: whether I'm in my inventory, standing still (waiting for morning), exploring/looting, in pause menu, it doesn't seem to matter what is happening at the time. I've even quit out back to the game's main menu before going on a long journey hoping it wouldn't crash on me during and immediatly upon loading back into my game the HUD staring cutting in and out and crashing a few seconds later. One of the times really hurt though, my son and I were playing and running back to our house/base before nightfall. The game does the same thing every time, goes to black screen then to the Xbox dashboard. I decided we take a break because the game had crashed multiple times before this and I was getting frustrated. This time was different though. When I decided to hop back in the next day my character still had everything in my inventory but wasn't where I had been when the game crashed, I was on the roof of our house/base and the time in game had jumped forward by about 4 hours. I had never been on the roof of our base before so I was confused about that and the time being jumped forward. I just played it out til morning though killing multiple zombies down below. Once morning hit I broke a hole in the roof to access the attic where our bedrolls were and all of our loot in the gun safe and suitcase and a few wooden containers that I had placed. I come to see that the wooden containers and bedrolls were gone but the gun safe and suitcase that were in the house before were now untouched and the door leading to the room was back. All of our loot from playing the last 2 weeks was gone so I decided to check the rest of the house. Everything in the house that we had looted prior was now untouched and only parts of the house we're back to before we had been there. The garage door was fixed where we had broken through, the holes in the garage walls that I removed for more light were still there and the bottom two pieces of the ladder I took out leading to the attic where we set up base were still gone, and all the shrubbery in the front yard I removed was still gone. Luckily we had another base far away with loot we collected prior to this base so we weren't empty handed other than what was still on our characters. We decided on a new area and set up a base with all that we had from our first base and hopefully with the workaround I found in one of the forums here it will help keep us from losing loot and wasting time. I don't believe the information I gave here will help that much to pinpoint the cause of these crashes but I do feel better sharing my experience here and getting it off my chest to a community who plays the game. I would like to say that this is a great game in many ways and to me very unique. Keep up the good hard work and I look forward to sharing what I can to help this game for the future. You can give thanks to Neebs Gaming for introducing me.

    Just crashed#15 on day 43. 2/3 of base gone and of course all supplies and mini bike. Working outside of base, building a bridge, about 3 sections away from main portion of base, screen goes blank and it cut two ways in half, long way and side ways. Oh, boy.

    Hi all,

    Thank you for continuing to report cases of MD5 errors. I am sorry they are hear they are effecting your saves but I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share the details of these occurrences. All information from the community is valuable in tracking and monitoring bugs while the team work on and investigate issues. Feedback is also highly valued, both positive and negative is passed back to the team and is always welcome on the forums so long as it sticks to the forum rules.

    While I normally ask that each player posts a separate bug report, I am leaving this thread open so reports of recent MD5 errors in the game can be collected here. I may not respond as often to this thread, but I am listening. If you would like a direct response from me about a particular issue, please post it in a unique thread so I can address it and avoid any confusion as maintaining conversations in large thread can be difficult.

    As a reminder, there two workarounds for the MD5 error are...

    PS4 - Maintain a backup of your save via the cloud or USB so should an error occur you can restore a previous save.

    XB1 - The following workaround is player found. As such, it is deemed an unofficial workaround. While players swear by it, it does involve deleting data, so caution is advised and players use it at their own risk https://7daystodie.com/forums/showth...-wipes-resets)

    ...I understand these methods are not always ideal for players. But those who use them have said it helps to avoid MD5s or having to rebuild areas.

    Again, I am sorry the MD5 errors are effecting your saves.
    Clare
