    they should be working on getting some claw hammers, to replace those shitty stone axes. Also how do they not have all the stuff set up yet to start crafting their own ammo/weapons, and highly quality materials. They could have replaced every block of that house with cement by now and fully upgraded it.

    This was a pretty awful video up until the last minute. First, there's Gavin's lost footage. Second, you have Jack wanting to play it safe, and stay on the the roof for night seven. Great way to get concept, there! Third, there was also no action at the base with Ryan, and Jeremy because either Jack screwed up the spawning by staying on the roof, or the zombies at the base were spawning under water. It's most likely the latter reason, but either way that can't happen again going forward. They need to ditch that base, and find a new one. Or, build one of their own, and If they're going to build their own, then they should aim their sights a little higher then just a square block.

      Jack wants to play it safe because they are out of position with no time to get back.

      This is the price paid for Jack and Gavin's skyscraper adventure, which has been lots of fun.

      At what point was the objective of this series anything other than watching these assholes dick around and try to survive in this game? That's what they do in sandbox games. See also Sky Factory, GTA.

      And they don't have full understanding or control of the mechanics.

      You do know who these guys are right, if there's an easy way to survive a zombie horde they'll exploit the hell out of it. As for base building, the only one that knows how to build things that aren't a giant boxes of wood is Jeremy and he's too happy killing to bother with building a base.

      Though he also built a giant box in the xbox version.

    Ryan, I doubt you'll read this, but here's what needs to happen if you want to preserve the existing base, its inventory, player levels, but not have houses on spires and road walls out in the world --


    Figure out which region file(s) your home base and the old base are in (based on x,z coordinates - this forum post includes a link to a useful tool for this job-->  https://7daystodie.com/forums/showthread.php?32117-Coordinates-to-Region-File-Calculator ), I believe you you can move and backup the save on the server, update the server, make a new save with the same seed name and then copy your home region file(s) and Player folder from the old save into the new save folder. 


    There will be terrain mismatch (walls and such) between anywhere you'd explored in that region and the new world, but the houses on spires and road walls in the rest of the world would no longer be an issue.  (I believe road/POI position data is calculated when the world is created and stored in the HubCellData folder inside the game save folder.  If that could be regenerated, that would also solve the problems. but I haven't found a way to do that). 


    I believe you'll also want all the files from the gamesave's root folder except main.ttw and rules.bin


    So to deal with spire-houses and walls: 

    1) Find any treasures you guys have out in the world already. Don't read any new treasure maps before performing the fix.

       (Reading a map spawns a chest in the world at a random position 3 blocks from the uppermost block in that spot (in attics sometimes) and starts a player quest - if the chests are preserved, they'll probably be at the wrong height.  If they're not preserved, the quest may not fail cleanly).

    2) Determine which 1 or 2 region files you want to keep (current house, old house) (region file calculator linked above).

    3) Make sure all players are on the ground and in the region(s) being saved (to avoid fall deaths and wall suffocation, etc).

    4) Backup and move the original gamesave folder on the server.

       (by default -- C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\7DaysToDie\Saves\Random Gen\[seed name]  )

    5) Backup your serverconfig.xml file (server .exe folder) and your serveradmin.xml file (Server saves folder).

    6) Update the server to the current version.

    7) Replace serverconfig.xml and serveradmin.xml with your backups.

    8) Start the server, generating a new world with the original seed name (Gamename in serverconfig.xml)

    9) After the server has fully initialized and generated HubCellData, shut the server down.

    10) Copy the Players folder, the 1 or 2 original region files being kept, and all the files from the backed up gamesave's root EXCEPT main.ttw and rules.bin to the same locations in the new gamesave, overwriting as necessary.

    11) Just in case, backup and move the gamesaves from the players' computers. (C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\7DaysToDie\SavesLocal\Random Gen\[unique many-digit name] )


    Nothing but player actions in-game will smooth the boundary between previously generated terrain and newly generated terrain though, sorry.  Ladders, frames and stairs and shovels.


    Edit:  I tested this on an Alpha 16 preview world of mine and it seems to have worked well.  The date and time were not preserved.  Use the "st" (set time) console command ("st 15 12 00" for day 15 at noon).  Also, a while back I said to use cm to turn on creative mode to fly and no-clip though the ground to get to sunken supply crates, but I was mistaken and you need to use the console command "dm" (enable debug mode) and then hit Q to enable "god" mode which also enables no-clip flight.  Enter the same console command again to disable debug mode. The user must have admin privileges, in serveradmin.xml


    P.S.  just for posterity's sake, you might want to also try to keep the region file containing the house on the spire you and Jeremy climbed.


    P.P.S RE: Michael and his disappearing items, droppped items only stay in the world for 1 minute.  On day 8 in this series, I believe, you can watch Jeremy drop a treasure map in the house and watch it disappear 1 minute later because, wonder of wonders, no one was paying attention to what anyone else was saying and no one picked it up.

    LOL i love how with multiple plays and they are at Day 14 in this one, they are still so clueless about how the game really works lol. Jake complaining about not getting health back with full food.... If you know the game at all you know that's not how it works lol. You only get a set amount of health back for the food you eat and it varies with the quality of food. Little things like Berries and such only give about a HP or so back while something like Meat Stew will give 10-20 or so. But being full means nothing to getting health back. Also the lack of them breaking parts and such down for scrap iron and just leaving irks me to no end.  stuck_out_tongue

    I agree with Gavin about the 7th day still not being "good".  I think I got to 100 plus days on my run and spent several 7 days inside one of those well bunkers while building up an outside base. Needless to say on the final 7th day I got into my wooden bunker with wood spikes and was waiting for a massive horde and it never really showed up. I had to pause the game and put it on the hardest settings with the most zombies and extend nighttime just to get some enjoyment out of it.. I still put in a lot of time and had a hell of a time exploring the game though. With all its bugs and rough sides to the game it was pretty damn immersive and I had a lot of fun and frustration with this game. Definitely worth the 9 dollars I paid for it. 

    • dostatochno FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Part of the reason that nothing was in the tower area is because Gavin died (AGAIN) just before night there.  The game is scaling difficulty back because of his pathetic gameplay and it may have completely nixed the local horde because of his death.


      It wouldn't annoy me so much if he were actually making an effort, but he isn't. He's worse than dead weight.

      No matter how much experience you have doing something, it doesn't prevent equipment failure. Particularly with technology, and given just how much content they record. They record thousands of hours of video, each, so something going wrong is bound to happen at times......

      You're getting dumpstered on, but I agree with you. Just look at FunHaus as a comparison. They produce less content than AH but they have almost never lost footage. What is it about AH's setup, how they manage files or whatever that causes them to lose footage on such a regular basis? 

    • IanMacIntyre FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      @zebry13 to fair, if FunHaus loses footage they usually just don't have a video. Most of their content is 1 person playing a game while everyone else watches and talks so if someone loses footage there is no footage. I can't speak to the frequency of lost footage as I've never used their hardware or software maybe it's them maybe it's not.

      @IanMacIntyre True, I thought about that when I was writing my comment. Still though, they've made hundreds of videos with multicam setups and have almost never footage. I'm not sure that they would completely dump a multicam video like that just because they lost one person's footage, they might but I doubt it.

      I think they've said it would be really hard to do it. Since they already have a lot of content that they produce weekly i.e. minecraft there isnt as much time for this popular but still less popular series. Plus with the way time works in the game they want as many hunters in each episode as possible which is very difficult to do with their schedules.
