Alpha 11.2 B4 [12] 10.4.2015

Alpha 11.2 B4

We’ve been troubleshooting the issues with Mac and Linux not loading and have fixed the issue. We used a new loading function in the first set of builds and it causes the program to crash on many Mac systems. We have not tested this on Linux because the systems we have loaded the first set on worked fine. If you are on Linux and are still having issues, please let me know in this thread. We reverted to the old (11.1) loading system until we can get in and debug it fully. This change will not affect anyone’s saves or what have you, it’s a simple pre-game change. However, there was a small change to the RWGmixer XML that got added from yesterdays patch, so you MAY have some generation issues. I highly doubt it, but just covering the bases here gents. Please go ahead and download it and get back into the game!

Alpha 10[ | ]

Alpha 10.4 B10 Hotfix

  • Fixed a problem with the Unity NAT facilitator so peer to peer connections work again. We’re looking into a longer term solution for this.

FALSE means that you will change looks depending on what your current character looks like each time you log in.

Tools and Modding

  • Folks we’re not really officially supporting modding yet but we’re working on some of the proper framework to do so. That said here are some things that have been done or are in the works.
  • Changed Xml configuration files reside now in Data/Config for modding
  • Because we changed our Block IDS dramatically for organizational and performance benefits we have asked Hal 9000 to create a prefab conversion utility which thankfully he agreed. The Utility converts your previously built user prefabs to our new block IDs so you can use them with Alpha 10. More info and download here: http://www.vendocode.com/SDTD/SDTD.asmx/GetPrefabConverter
  • Hal 9000 is also working with us on an official Xml Editor which will help folk’s mod the game. It can be downloaded here: http://www.vendocode.com/SDTD/SDTD.asmx/GetXMLEditor

Known Issues

  • Some clients may experience connection problems while playing which can result in the world chunks not drawing and zombies not moving. This can be fixed by disconnecting and reconnecting
  • When loading a previous saved game Weapons can sometimes load rotated incorrectly. This can be fixed by switching hold items
  • Impact sounds for chainsaws/augers still use bullet impact sounds which is why they are too loud which will be fixed in the next build

Alpha 9.2 Dedi only CPU fix [26] 04.09.2014

Alpha 9.2 Dedi only CPU fix

We updated the dedicated server only build (appid 294420). It uses the same version number (A9.2 b14) to be compatible with the existing clients. The update was due to a change in Unity 4.5.3 that obviously handles the VBlank different then in previous version. This caused a dedi server to take full CPU time of a single core even if no user was connected. :This problem should be fixed with the latest update (steam buildid 373581)
Alpha 9.2 [27] 04.09.2014

Alpha 9.2

If you want to use your modified DLL as a client the server must have anti-cheat disabled. Modified DLLs on servers are possible with anti-cheats on. If you want to join anti-cheat enabled servers you will need to use stock DLLs only as a client. Hopefully no more TNT fists of fury!

  • Added new zombie pathing system. It’s just an early start to a grander scheme but zombies don’t weave back and forth as much and path straighter, they will only walk off a ledge from a certain height and can get through doors easily now.

  • Currently there are no upgrade/downgrade path for concrete, reinforced concrete or metal doors.

New Systems Guide Alpha 7.10 came with upgradable downgradable blocks, land claims, friends list and locking doors and chests. Here is a little more information on how these systems work. Upgradable and Downgradable blocks

  • Players can build wood frames and while holding a stone axe with wood planks in their inventory right click on a wood frame block and upgrade it to a wood block and repeat action to upgrade it to a reinforced wood block. Then if you have scrap metal you can upgrade it once again to metal reinforced wood block. These same blocks can be damaged and downgraded to their previous states and then repaired and upgraded again.
  • There is also a higher grade cobblestone path that upgrades form metal rebar to cobblestone to fortified to reinforced metal concrete

Land Claims

  • New players are awarded 1 land claim keystone block in their starting inventory if a server is running Survival PvP. Ways to earn more will be added in future updates.
  • You can kill players and loot their land claim blocks if they haven’t been placed or mine up a land claim block and steal it for your own so its wise to protect your land claim blocks
  • The keystone block is a special looking block that when carried by the player shows a 7×7 or server set protection grid rendered as a transparent green protected grid.
  • The keystone block offers durability protection 7×7 all the way vertically
  • Keystone blocks can be destroyed by other players removing their durability modifier of the fort

Known Bugs

  • Zombies tend to bug in presence of water. Either they don't even go into water or they register water as darkness and start running into it and towards the player.
  • Zombies will sprint towards the player during daytime for a second or two when walking onto the road.
  • Zombies sometimes glitch where they will attack something and will stay there forever until they are interacted with (Note that this sometimes causes huge FPS lag).
  • Closing the game while respawning sets your spawn point to where you died.
  • Versions of Cinder Blocks make different sounds and take different time to destroy.
  • Destroyed Stone makes no sound when hit.
  • Crops don't need sunlight to grow. Some torches will do fine (even deep underground).
  • Some crops can be placed on any type of block such as Stone.
  • Trunk Tips of any kind and Barbed Wire won't inflict damage.
  • Scrap Iron Wall doesn't have a thumbnail in the game.
  • TNT shows as a block in the inventory but goes to its texture when placed.
  • When reloading the Sawed off Pump Shotgun and switching inventory slots, you still hear the Sawed off Pump Shotgun sound and be required to fully reload the shotgun, but it doesn't reload.
  • The Shotgun must reload all shells before using it again.
  • When mining blocks, the drops may be stuck inside a solid block, which makes it to be difficult to pick up.
  • When crafting items from your front inventory bar and exiting out of it, your items will stack and duplicate, doubling the amount.
  • Placing a nearly destroyed pickaxe in the crafting table gives a pickaxe with nearly full durability.
  • When breaking the Refrigerator with a pickaxe and then placing it again, loot will spawn inside it.
  • Sometimes the industry factory towers will not fall from gravity once the bottoms are taken off of it (Normally when you use barrels to explode the tower).
  • When placing a wood Spikes next to a wall, you can place more wood Spikes on top of each other depending on the wall size.
  • When you die from Radiation in the Rad zone, you will still hear the Radiation sound when respawning for several seconds, and until you click 'ENTER' to spawn.
  • Items and Blocks of any kind when crafted can be stacked to any amount, but when using the item, or dropping, it will not restack back onto its original stack, as the limit is 64 for most items (For example, making 700 Sticks, dropping 10 sticks, the sticks will stack into a new stack until its limit '64' is reached).
  • When refueling the Chainsaw or Auger, there is no sound effect to it? (Bug or not added to the game?)
  • Some blocks and items around the map act as a storage container and can be looted.
  • When clicking your mouse onto an item or block in your inventory, for a slight second, you will notice a different name saying something like 'pistol' other than 'Pistol'. When clicking an item for a slight second you will notice it uses the items 'code' name for the coding files of the game. In addition to this, sometimes your inventory will glitch out where you hover your mouse over an item such as the 'Pistol', but the name will show as 'Paper'.
  • When your underground and the sun is going down or up, you will notice a 'Lighting' changing effect. When its daytime it will be lighter than normal in the underground. When it's night, it will be darker.
  • The Torch and Flashlight don't effect the lighting level. You can walk into a pitch black area and use the Torch or Flashlight in your hand and it will not change the lighting level, it only shows as an animation effect.
  • Sleeping Bags will show up on the outside part of your map. It will show the arrow of your Sleeping Bag spawn point in the bars of Hunger, Health and the others.
  • In Multiplayer, when a player leaves the game, it will delete the inventory of anyone that leaves and rejoins the game, but not the player who is hosting the server.
  • When farming with corn, you will sometimes receive Candy Tin Cans as loot and also some other items.
  • When underwater, you do not have a water breathing bar, so therefore you cannot die underwater. (?)
  • You cannot place blocks in or on water, and water cannot be destroyed as zombies cannot attack it and doesn't indicate as a 'Source' block. (?)
  • When sprinting towards a solid block or wall, and walking towards it while being right next to it, you can see though the wall, acting as a transparent block.
  • When attempting to join a server, and the Server fails, the mouse will be disabled until you either exit the window by closing it or by pressing Alt + Tab and re-entering the window.
