It can work. IF you have the hardware to support it. Which you do.
Basically, you are splitting the main processing workload between two cores instead of one.

Just a note first that I'm jut a forum moderator not a dev (dont wanna cause confusion)

I think it's likely that post 1.0 the saves will be persistent, I can think of ways that, with all the new systems and functions they've built into world gen, poi placement, quests, events, etc, they could ostensibly implement the coming post 1.0 features without necessitating a restart; Plus they're pretty much done doing deep revamps of the world generator, the character data structure, etc; So there's no longer a(s ma)ny things that could lead to a necessitated restart as has been the case in most of the alphas going back.

There's also the possibility that they'll finally allow you to bring a save forward into the new version compatibly, you just may be missing out on certain features that would have required a new save; Allowing you to experience Most of the changes with your existing save, just not all of em.

I can't say 100% for sure as things may pan out diff... Read more

Provided you are using the appropriate tool for the material (IE, pickaxe/auger for stone, axe for wood, shovel for dirt) Every given block of material gives a specific amount of resource regardless of how hard or soft you hit it or how fast or slow you harvest it.

If a block of iron has 1000 hp and gives, for example, 100 iron, You will get 100 iron per block regardless of whether you do it in 1000 hits of 1, or 1 hit of 1000, or anything in between. You will get exactly the same material per block mined with a pickaxe or with an augur.

You might get more material harvest per period of time with one tool over another, as explained above; But the material per block harvested is identical with the appropriate tool type.

Uhh... How much lower? What is the health you're expecting him to have? What is his player level and his current health?

:conwayheadscratch: If you'd read the thread you found you likely would have found the answer to your question...

But, The TL;DR of it is, Because Steam doesn't offer cross-platform server support, and Epic does. There are some other services that offer cross-platform support, but TFP determined that among the options, Epic was the best and most robust option.

Yes; You have to have a landclaim block nearby, and hold E not press E.

No. FPS for a server is not the same as FPS for your game client. It is intentionally capped at 20. If you were to take it higher you would just be wasting CPU cycles for the same of burning electricity, and it would cause problems with the way the game client functions.

Otherwise, anyone would only be guessing. My guess would be "yes", even at 4K. My guess would also be "silly" because you'd be hard pressed to notice any difference during play between the max settings and the next level down. Or further. Also, your ludicrously overpriced graphics card is ludicrously overpowered for 7DTD and w...

1. It works for us, so might work for release.

2. I don't know

3. Weight? Like install size? I don't know as each platform builds differently. Maybe 20 to 40 GBs.

We have dirt/gravel roads.

RWG road pathing changes is a different system than decorations, so no plans for deco changes like that.

Nah, comparing it to older versions it is a lot brighter. I started reporting it in a19 or so. I remember during early a20 internal testing that bloodmoon night was about the same brightness as sunny noon, except with a red tint. Reported it then as well. Even did so again recently, but at this point I suppose we just cave to "that is the dev's vision". There is one point at night where it gets dark for like three minutes. Other than that it is ...

Major new updates are not compatible with old alphas. So you will have a choice. Keep playing the saved games you’ve invested time in - on the alpha you started them on - or get the new update and start new games on that. Incompatible save files are one of the hazards of playing a game that is, for now, still in alpha development.

One of the differences in leaving alpha, one would hope, would be that saved games are forwards compatible thereafter.

The gun part system did not work in conjunction with the weapon mod system as they both utilized the same interface. It basically came down to being one or the other. Since they were getting rid of the upgrade system with the 600-point curve due to abuse on the workbench already, it made sense to get rid of the parts as well. This also helped to trim down the number of items in the game as there were code limitations at the time that were preventing the introduction of new items as the index cap was hit.

Near zero % chance of finding an egg? Are you by chance playing with reduced loot abundance? Due to the way loot abundance functions, certain items get a bit of an unduly harsh effect. Eggs is one of those items.

Loot abundance affects two things for most items; Drop chance(the chance any valid slot in an object might produce loot), and stack size (the quantity of items rolled for a slot; when multiple slots roll the same item, they get stacked together). Single non stackable items are only affected by the Drop Chance side of things, Books are considered single non-stackable despite being stackable; Despite this, an amusing interaction occurs when you raise loot abundance to 200 or 300% in that you'll always find two, or three, copies respectively of a given book when it appears.

And lastly, the rule that makes it feel broken AF for Eggs, is that all decimals are rounded Down, never up. So 1.1 is 1, 1.9 is also 1.

Setting aside the drop chance and speak... Read more

Came to say this. You don't have a chili dog with those steps, you have a chili bun. Seems like maybe it's harder to cook than you give it credit for ;P
