Anyone tested how far down you can dig a hole in the ground? Might be able to dig some mega deep safe haven, with a few exits?

Also another random thought, I last logged out in Steely's underground basement! hiding under his bed lol
If he fills it in with dirt or it collapses etc..., wondering if I might spawn back underground? Shocked

Updated the server to latest patch 10.2 and had a few crash issues, hopefully resolved now with a reduction in zombie numbers from 80 to 60, which is server default. Alsip been tweaking the server manager software which could also be the cause. Will keep an eye on it

Updated the server to 10.3 without server wipe while the pvp server was updated and wiped. I think I will now wipe my server also in the near future to take advantage of all the new features in this update, loving this game more and more tbh, developers seem to be on the ball and pushing forward nicely.

Ok so with the possibility of the clan server going at the end of the month I thought I would open this up to discuss what anyone wants from my server if this happens. I'm going to be playing this game for the foreseeable future so I will continue with keeping up and maintaining my server.
The question is what to do with it? Either leave it as is for clan and friends or open it up and just call it the clan server.
Could be a good chance for a fresh start and to build a mega base together lol.

There are a few regulars on the clan server that I would definitely invite over. I would say that from my experience the open server has been a success with some good regulars joining and minimum griefing, not bringing too much attention to yourselves helps with this a lot .

I like it how it is Sick Boy - the only problems I've had with these games is (unknown) players base raping/griefing. This game has pretty good NPC challenges, so I kind of like only clan/friends on the server. Gives us a chance to build kick arse bases without some tool wrecking it

Im not too fussed mate.
Having it solo to the clan lets you create and experiment... but can get dull after a while. A few other players to mix things up can be a good thing.

On a side note... log in when im on and ill show you pseudo and my selfs base. Show you how to make it more player proof as well as zombie proof

Ok I've moved near the city at 0.0 on the map. Will be building my new base there so I can do raids on the city when I fancy. I plan on making a mining base where I will store valuables and a (eventually) massive castle. For staying when the hordes are about for a bit of fun.

I'm going to enable cheats and spawn some land claim blocks for when I open the server up, which will probably happen in the next few weeks.
If too many Muppets cause hassle I will just close it off again.

Cool, not sure if its a common problem or a one off but the fires dont seem to work? (forges and campfires) if its not common maybe a reboot might kick it in gear... anyone else have this issue?

Just a little update on the server.
I'm keeping it going and have no plans to let it go any time soon and for the most part its running fine, I'm thinking the upcoming update will be a big one and its been a while so I'm looking forward to it. Think I'm going to be splitting my time between this and dayz, getting the itch to get back into that now also.
I seem to be the only person on this regularly now but that's fine, I'm still enjoying it and maybe after the next update and server wipe I can start some new big projects again with some help from the lads.

New update is live!!! Was having problems updating the server as it would just hang and be unresponsive, in the end just did a total reinstall and now its back at stock default settings.
Need to sit down and alter the config again to my settings and there are new settings to sort with all the updated random gen stuff. So should be sorted over the weekend.
Apart from on first impressions the new update looks awesome and is a big jump from the last version, the guys making this game are making amazing progress honestly. I will be doing a proper post on the update after a longer period playing it though.

Well, logged into 7DTD to check out the new update - it's impressive and well hard compared to the old 7DTD. I spawned in a spooky misty moor:



But soon found my way to Loony's temporary hide out. Problem is, collecting resources and building is harder and slower than previously, so when the zombie swarm hit at night, we were quickly overwhelmed. The dogs in particular are still son's of zombie bitches. Luckily we had beds down, so I was able to respawn and punch the last one to death:



Eventually day 7 hit and the whole lot of us were totally wiped out, except Sickboy managed to hide somewhere, which made it easier to get back (zombies destroyed our beds).

Unfortunately, a couple of the lads got themselves stuck in a hole when they respawned, so I had to lure a zombie to them so they could respawn somewhere more convenient:



parkouring to get backpack of rooftop
watching Zebra motorboat a zombie nurse while calling out "boobies"
punching zombie dog in face until it dies
10/10 would play it again

Well after that good session last night I think its safe to say this update has been well received by most if not all of the lads.

It is bloody hard now, I thought it was hard at the start before... but this makes it feel like it was on easy before. Anyone who can survive the first 7 nights without getting murdered deserves a medal in my book. Playing as a team will be a big advantage now as gathering resources is slower and harder at the start at least, stealth and a bit of luck are needed for sure.

Graphically it looks like a new game with the updated engine looking great. Lighting it particular looks fantastic now with the new tree models and updated zombie textures making it incredibly atmospheric.
Hiding out for the night in the roof space of one of the houses we found, I sat looking out the window into the darkness. All I could see were the trees swaying in the wind and zombies wandering the village in the gloomy darkness. It was incredibly atmospheric and one of those gaming moments you remember for a long time

One thing that has got easier with this update is that you need to eat and drink a lot less often... a welcome change.

yeah, I can't get on now either Loony. I'm running alpha 11.2 (63). A message pops up but disappears before I can read it. I think the server needs an update.

Ok got back on and updated yesterday and today another update has rolled out, seems a small update with more performance improvements.
Updating the server as we speak. Would be good to get a few of us back in this as its so bloody hard to survive solo now lol. Will be testing the patch and server later, may do a full wipe and restart depending how it goes

Had a great time exploring the landscape with sickboy yesterday. Wandered into a tunnel, cleared out some zeds and set up camp. Massive cavern at the end of the tunnel shows promise once we gather the mats to build. Many a broken leg attempting to get into and out of the cavern...

Sickboy attempting to look for a way into the cavern


Sickboy doing...actually, what the frack are you doing?

I died in a tunnel (cave in) the other day, back pack glitched and is now most likely at a random spot on the the map.

Think of it as a lucky tresure hunt, loaded with gear including an SMG with about 200 rounds. Someones gonna get lucky!

What an awesome night of zombie smackdown!

Loony, Sickboy, Lonewolf and I teamed up and went for a city raid. Decided to make and overnight camping trip out of it, and found a suitable rooftop to take up position. After a reasonable busy night of zombie slaughter, we headed off to Loony's base to rearm then headed back into the city for another night's fun. A few broken legs, falling through holes into zombie pits and being mauled by dogs later, and we finished up the round with quite a lot of zombies killed. I think I was at around 200+ kills.

Stocking up at the Loony Super Store for Zombie Hunters.


Brothers in arms

Great stuff...

I think a highlight was previously when wolf fell down a deep hole and lived! (dont run around in the dark...)
After some messing about, we were off again and then i fell down a hole too! After screaming in pain of falling to my imminent death below, flashing back to wolf's previous predicament.... I realized it was only a few meters deep...

Embarassed

I had a quick look through some of my footage and laughed out loud watching myself running into the city from the base after one of my numerous deaths lol and finding myself surrounded by the undead....I proper freaked out hahahahaa.
Will try to condense the 3h 30m video into a 30m YouTube highlight to give you all a great laugh. And yes I hit the whiskey pretty hard last night Smile
