Quick question guys, can I set structures on fire? I'm holed up in someone else's base and with no way to defend myself from their hospitality other than the torches they left lying around.

Fire is one thing that all free-building games need, yet none have. The day True Fire was patched out of Minecraft was a sorry day.
Alas, this game has no fire.

I really want to play multiplayer on this, it's the only reason I bought it, but the game just runs like a piece of poo poo whenever I join a server. I can play by myself and have it run perfectly well but as soon as I join a server it's sluggish and slow and unplayable.

The server listed in the OP isn't coming up and won't let me connect to it is full. Where are you guys, and how do I get in?

Try joining anyways. It should let you on. Unless we hit the cap again, in which case I need to increase it.

Did you guys go for a server crawl last night? I joined up last night for an hour or two and hunted pubbies with a stack of pipe bombs but had to hop ship for an early morning just as people were starting to suggest joining other servers.

So i'm going to add a list of the latest supply caches to the PGS thread. Check it if you need supplies/need a place to stash your gear.

Some of them are basically mini-dungeons you have to traverse too. So they'd make good bases. One is infested with zombies that any people entering have to fight their way through to get to the base itself in fact!

We did a little server hopping before I had to log out due to a kopfschmerzen.

It was down to me and one other goon. We found some pubbies doing some building in Gravetown. One was building a concrete shack and another was trying to rebuild an existing building. We killed all the pubbies in the area, and I decided to see if a rocket launcher could blow up a stash and all the loot it contains. It can! Then we set up a bunch of TnT and completely demolished the project structure and the Mayor's office adjacent from it, and wrote RIP in the road between them with some leftover blocks. The fireworks were a thing of beauty.

To be fair, the server gets pretty active starting around 3PM EST or so. I had to boost it to 40 from 20 because we were running out of slots due to all the pubbies and goons flooding the place.

If I boosted it to 65 with the current bug showing servers as full we'd probably get more people. I may try that for a bit to see how many pubbies we can lure in.

Edit: And it's already working. It's early in the morning, and five minutes after I brought it up as the highest server pop-wise on the list, we have ten people on.

PROTIP- If Cpt Swearword wants to build a base with you, he's going to line it with explosives. This is a good thing, as we had a pubby following me around last night, trying to assault goon fort. I would rig each of our meetup locations with TNT buried one block underneath it, in an attempt to kill him. Cars, his forts, even blew up an entire mountaintop.


Was great fun.

Over the course of this I helped stage an epic drama as the iron-fisted ruler of a group of bandits that our hero Swear had broken away from, the pubbie bought it hook line and sinker and then challenged me to a 1v1 cage match fistfight. And of course accused me of cheating when he inevitably lost twice in a row

I joined the LLJK server and my spawn point just happened to have a large base already established. It got fortrified into a Bartertown type zone before raiders blew up most of it. The players within then turned into dwarves and tunnelled all the way from the desert to underneath the Spillway Lake.


Also tons of tnt.

Picture doesn't do the tunnel justice; It's a good distance of that size. If a computer part melted, Archonex, blame Ves.

Yeh, Apache got a few pubbies and me together, and we raided that pubbie base so hard, they literally tunneled from the desert to Spillway Lake. Some guy (Ves- somethingorother) ran a massive string of TNT along their escape tunnel, and ripped a massive line over a good quarter of it.

It had to happen, Synth. They were in goonserver, talking about "friendly PVP server" and "cooperation"

I harassed them out the server. That, or they went to bed. vv

I pulled the torches in the tunnel and tossed them, then plugged their lake entrances. Since you can't mine down through water...

Hopped into some servers with goons for the first time last night. It was mostly fun. We found one server that had a pretty huge wooden structure that seemed important, so we set about with oil barrerls and rocket launchers, leveling the thing. Through most of that, the lag was so bad from all the entities that people respawning into the area couldn't see anything but people shooting rockets at invisible things. We brought 3 servers to their knees through similar means.

The only real snag was getting accused of being a pubbie a couple times. I don't have a mic yet, so there were a few times when goons would be dropping stacks of items that I thought they were just dropping for anyone, and I'd end up getting blown up because they thought I was stealing them. By the middle of next week, I'll have a mic though, so hopefully that'll no longer be a problem.

The best part? He moved the server to a new IP this morning. Before he did this he reverted back to before the explosion, but the cave we dug is still there.

I filled it with TNT again.

The new image he has for the server is our cave filled with TNT. I've blown it up three times. It doesn't quite melt the server now, but he keeps reverting back...to the world with a cave full of TNT.

e: I also stashed TNT in crates all over the lake area. There is some in the wooden house, and some more in the stone castle.

I found this bit of advice on the Steam forum for the game after I ran into the same issue and wasn't getting anywhere with any of Steam's official troubleshooting options.

quote:

go to C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\common\7 Days To Die.
in that folder you will see:
Install_32bit.bat
press it and it will install.
now go to C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\common\7 Days To Die\Install\32bit
right click on
7DaysToDie.exe and press copy
now go back to C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\common\7 Days To Die and right click on an empty space on the screen and press paste. it will ask you to copy and replace or dont copy. press copy and replace and try your game then.

if youre on a 64 bit machine just change wherever i said 32 to 64

As many as you want, as long as you realize that each slot will be exploded with TNT as soon as we find it.
