I'm looking to put up a 7DTD server (rent), gauging interest...

People here seem to little less douchetastic (in game atleast, the Cute Fuzzy Kitten might go Cpt. Ebolter however) and it would Password locked.

I played this for a couple of weeks a few months back. I might stop in were there a server, but not anything regular.

I'd at least give it a shot; I haven't bought the game because I have zero tolerance for random online dickheads breaking my toys. A friendly f13 server would be fun.

Been on the fence about trying this. I'd probably give it a shot also at least.

I had it for a while and I got it because of the positive comments I've read here and elsewhere. Unfortunately, I couldn't get into it as it looked and felt worse than I expected. I am not saying it's bad, just that the first impression wasn't good and so I got distracted and then forgot about it.

If you haven't played it, it is probably worth a look. A weird mix between Day Z and Minecraft, but somehow it works. I am sure it is far more fleshed out and polished than when I was playing around Thanksgiving IIRC.

I'm waiting for Alpha 11 release.

They're moving to Unity 5 and cleaning up the graphics.

This is 40% off on steam right now, so for $15.00 what the hell. So I'm down if you do the server thing.

Fair enough on the Alpha 11 wait, looks like a massive update.

I think I'll snag it on sale because I should get the value out of it, but the timing couldn't really be worse with PoE coming out this week and GTA V a couple weeks later :)

Played a test game, the old lady got a chuckle. Spawned in a wintry area, zombies everywhere. Found a bunch of cabins, but zombies were tearing them up and I had a train following me at this point. So many dead lumberjacks and miners I felt like I was at a hipster party in Reykjavik. The loading screen told me to gather stuff for an axe, so I think I did but I never really had enough time to chill long enough to make one. I hid in a building but the tons of zombies found me, I killed one with a torch but then my torch broke or something, so I ran. I ran so far away.

Then I got to some wasteland and some dogs chased me until they ate me.

My only real complaints were the sounds, I'm pretty attuned to audio and it had that old school Thief thing where it sounds like I'm wearing high heeled boots and all the zombies were making a pretty janky walk sound. Foley ain't that tough.

Well, there's a physics engine so shit will fall on you, it all has to be supported.  But there's no creepers, just zombies wanting to taste your sweeeeet flesh.

They should be Nazi's up there, but ACK!.

Problem you're running into is it's just you on the server, it's set to generate 60 zombies, 1 person = 60 zombies, 2 persons = 60 zombies.  Those two people will split the zombies between them, that is unless one of them has cleared the local biome of zombies.

I was just in a single player game trying to learn the UI a bit before jumping on the server. Didn't have much time to learn the UI, seemed pretty hectic like trying to learn minecraft without a daylight cycle.

Yeah, initial survival is what tends to be hard in this game.  Once you get enough stuff crafted, the equation changes.

Let's be clear:  The minecraft part is nowhere near as easy as minecraft.

Yeah, there's a daylight cycle, it's you pretty much don't want to be outside during the night.

I know, I meant there were so many zombies where it spawned me that it was akin to spawning into minecraft at night naked.

I went back in during lunch where it had respawned me in the desert and in the car there was a pipe or something, so I bashed the two zombies nearby (is there location damage, headshots etc?). Then punched some bushes and whatnot and started to look at the crafting setup. Made an axe and a club. Had to go back to work.

It's kinda like minecraft in that the learning curve seems pretty steep when you are new, but once you've figured things out arguably the beginning game becomes too easy. For instance, once I had figured out how to make a crossbow with a couple of sticks and the hair off my back things got pretty simple.

But then I haven't played in a few months -- was more or less waiting for the Unity patch. But it might be fun to run around a multiplayer server for a bit.

What are the house rules for this one? Full on PvP? Cooperation and hands off everybody elses stuff?

Honestly, I do lean more toward the latter.

Full PvP, it's pretty much just f13 and possibly a co-worker or two (the one I spoke with pretty much said the same stuff about griefing that everyone else said in this thread).  If you lay down claim blocks your shit is pretty much protected unless you don't bother to log in for a week.

I've got the basic gist, played a while today without zeds. Of course I discovered the map border a little too late, couldn't recover my backpack of stuff...including the rifle I had made, lucking into finding both metal parts. I'll turn on zeds tomorrow and see how it goes, or maybe just jump right into the server.

I will tolerate about zero point zero percent griefing or pking. Your sandbox, but I won't stick around if people are shitting in it.

This one actually took some thought, I could set it to none. With this group my expectation is if you're getting pk'd you probably did something to deserve it.

I didn't mean I don't like friendly fire enabled. But I expect a co-op experience unless we decide to do some pvp later on if things get stale. Like set up two outposts across the map or something. Also, there should be consequences to spray&pray :)

As an example, we have friendly fire enabled on the minecraft server, but creeper explosion damage turned off, so people don't mistakenly (or intentionally, I guess) blow up someone's work.

I am considering removing dynamite due to, issues.  However, I want to keep things on unless they're abused.
