The Weekly Dead 53



Hello survivors and welcome to The Weekly Dead. This week we, ah you guys know how the Weekly Dead works, let's just jump right in!

Inventory Refactor
Still on that huge inventory refactor we've been doing, reorganizing how items look and feel inside the inventory and how you interact with them, getting all of that wrapped up.
This week we've worked extensively on adding attributes to loot items including defense, speed, infection risk reduction, fire resistance, and things like that.

We've also added tool tips to the items, with all these attributes visible.



Armor deals with durability differently than weapons, so you'll see much higher durability ratings on armor and clothing than weapons.

Multiplayer

We also have been doing a lot of work under the hood on multiplayer. Specifically things like door physics working correctly cross network, picking up and interacting with objects, and general consistency between client and host. Basically trying to get all the survivors on the same page all the time.

Scenery

We've got a lot of cool pictures to show off that I just don't know how to categorize otherwise.

First off, we have a few apartments showing signs of previous survivor interaction.







Pretty spooky looking to me at least. I mean, these images suggest that the bathroom for that apartment building is communal, and that's the spookiest thing I can think of!

We also have some images showing off our day/night cycle which lets us change time of day, density of clouds, moon phases, and more.











I could look at that sky all day. In fact, you just did!

Other Stuff

A few other things of interest were also made this week.

Starting with, an FPS counter added to the options menu so you can see how changing the options affects your performance.



and for our own purposes, a dev test center.



This will allow us to quickly look at every item in the game, pick them up, and test them. It makes testing the items both easy and fun, and shows us at a glance which items need to be worked on. You can't read it in the picture, but the green circle that is visible says "Walk here to spawn ammo" and as long as the gun has an ammo type plugged in, just walking into that circle will spawn us ammo.

It's a pretty sweet addition for us.

And finally, new zombie animations.

Click here to see them in action.

That delay will be fixed up soon, but we thought you might want to see that animation sooner.

Social Media Stuff

Now we arrive at the weekly reminder that Geoff, Richard, and Chaoss do livestreams every now and then on twitch.

The Weekly Dead 52



Hello survivors! Welcome to this week's edition of The Weekly Dead, where we explain what we have been doing all week.

Update 3

Update 3 will focus on 3 main areas.

1:Multiplayer and fixing small issues with it.
2:Inventory and refactoring.
3:Loads of little fixes and additions that Geoff can work on in the meantime.

Now, last week's focus was multiplayer, and this week has mainly been inventory issues, so we'll go straight to that for now.

Inventory

This was the delicious meat of this week's work, refactoring inventory.
Tool tips have been created and work pretty well actually. For both items in your inventory, and your stat organs.

Looks a little something like this.



Items can now be dragged and dropped, much like one would do in Diablo.

Picked up an item in the inventory and put it down again, Diablo style. Yes yes yes. A very small part of the refactor, but nice. #TDL

The backpack can also be closed with the 'Esc' key, a small but important feature.

This is working for the next update. Backpack will be closable with Esc key.
— Zag (@geoffkeene) August 17, 2015

Finally, the survivor model, YOUR survivor, is visible in the inventory. It's work in progress but it lays the proper foundation.



Clothing items you wear will be visible on your model in the inventory.

The rest of the inventory fixes, tweaks, and refactoring was mainly deep coding and blue print work. Things like weapon and equipment sockets.

Little Things and Bug Fixes

Now onto the little things that have been worked on.

Things like, fixing a typo in the credits screen, adding dev commands, making it so you can't open the inventory in the splash screen, and adding a button to click on the splash screen for clicky people. What does it do? We'll let you figure that one out.

Stamina now regenerates slowly when walking compared to standing still. It no longer drains while standing still and holding shift.

Ladders have also gotten a little love. They now have a box at the top of the ladder that can detect whether you are coming up to it on the ladder, or off of it. If you are on it, you are placed safely at the top of the ladder when you hit the box. If you are off of it, you are placed safely on the ladder.

A basic feedback form has also been worked on. Heavily in progress, so much so that it won't be in update 3 at this point. But it was something made and is worth a look.



At this point, F8 will be the key to bring this screen up. Oh and the tool tips here are the wrong way around.

A basic Celsius temperature gauge has been implemented. So now the rest of the world can know how hot it is in game.

Finally, there is this baby.



That will show your survivor when you click on it. Currently deciding if we'll load a save or load the main save to display it, but this also might pave the way for a 3D background in the main menu.

That wraps up this week's Weekly Dead.

I don't know what to say. More than two years in Alpha and... no progress whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I'm almost certain this game has actually gotten worse since I first purchased it.

I just finished playing a short session this evening and the most fun I had was when I found a bicycle in an abandoned garage. I rode around the empty streets and pretended I was playing Paperboy 3D. I had to imagine throwing newspapers at the abandoned houses though since this game has no mechanics implemented yet that would allow a player to actually do anything remotely that fun. I suppose the occasional zombie here and there could have provided a challenging obstacle to my imaginary paper route however, if they moved faster than the average tortoise that is.

Oh well, maybe another two years in Alpha and this will all change and the devs will actually turn this mess into an actual videogame...

... nah.

Bought the game 3 years ago, and managed to do 1.5 hours during that time... This is garbage. Haven't been paying atention for a long time, and checking back now it turns out they changed the engine AGAIN, and the world is no longer procedurally generated?

'Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops'... Sort of expected the 'develops' part to actually happen, Early Access!

I've been with this game for 2-3 years now, and I must say to you, whether you're interested in buying this game or not I should tell you not too. The game is apparently ran by an ignorant company owner who was given complete control over sandswept by his father and basically half of the kickstater funds are going towards the ''19 Year olds'' paycheck, that's right, he's 19.

See the problem?, he's taking more of the funding process to fill his wallet then to actually put it towards the game. Two employee's weren't even being payed at sandswept. This game won't ever be finished all, it'll either be dead within a year or two, or all of the employee's will quit and head off to better companys.

What can I say.. This game was rolled out on early access well over a year and a half ago. It looked promising, with its low-end graphics (seemingly perfect for my low-end mahine). The devs seem alright, and are quite active, but are in my opinion far too ambitious. The game runs rather poorly on even my friends' much nicer computers, and on mine it is a laggy mess. Cool concept, but there have been so many poor decisions in development, and coupled with the inherent unplayability for me, that's a deal breaker. I'm sorry TDL. I wanted to like you, I really did. So much promise. But alas, it seems that this is the price that we pay for early access. As it stands, I can't recommend this game to anyone. I'm sure that it may get better. But for now, just save your $20, spend it on something like Mount & Blade or Just Cause 2. They may not have zombies, but as time goes on, I feel that is an increasingly good thing.
