    Some alpha 15 tips/suggestions from a person with 550+ hours in the game. A few are things that could definitely be done, while some are efficient but may make the game less fun to play/watch.


    Simple Stuff:
    1. If you're not crafting  anything else, you should be crafting arrows. The resources to make them are plentiful, and doing so improves your weapon-smithing.
    2. Travel light. One type of health restorative, maybe a splint, tools, one melee weapon  (not counting a skinning knife), one firearm, a bow or crossbow, ammo,  and a decent amount of wood for ladders, stairs, and chests. You can take food and water early on, but you can usually get by just topping off before leaving your base, as long as you're not making a multi-day trip.
    3. You can hit the money bag icon in the upper left-hand corner of your backpack or any storage container to automatically organize its contents.
    4. Since you have a group that is always on at the same time, consider assigning roles so that you can all benefit from better tools, weapons, armor, etc. For example, have one person in charge of all armor so that every new piece of armor is better than the last, and fewer resources are wasted by having everyone making their own crappy armor.


    Important Stuff:
    5. As of A15, nitrate powder is one of the least common resources. You get it from stalactites and stalagmites in caves and from small above-ground deposits in snow biomes, with no other reliable sources I know of, so conserve what you do get! Making gunpowder in the chemistry station is more efficient than making it in your backpack, and the fertilizer recipe that uses poop is more efficient than the one that uses rotten flesh.
    6. You want to start making iron armor as soon as possible. Even low quality iron armor provides good protection, and I believe that it currently either has no temperature value or it keeps you cooler. Military and bandit armor is better, but harder to replace and maintain.
    7. Repairing tools/weapons improves the relevant crafting skill faster than making a new item, and now that you have a workbench, you can combine identical items and gun parts to both repair and improve the resulting item. Try to repair items before combining them to maximize skill growth and the quality of the combined item.
    8. Hit zombie/animal corpses with shivs/knives/machetes to get bones and improve your blade weapons skill. Knives and machetes are more efficient than bone shivs, and bones can be turned into glue, to make duct tape, which is used in repair kits and other recipes.
    9. Wood is renewable, coal is not. Don't use coal as fuel for campfires/forges/chemistry stations.

    10. A chemistry station can be found at the back of a Pop'n'Pills store. Use a wrench to get it.


    Potentially Boring Stuff:
    11. If you're still having trouble carrying everything you want to take back to your base, you can leave wooden chests in visible/marked locations to get their contents later.
    12. You can spam craft anvils to improve tool-smithing quickly, but you'll be stuck looking at the forge menu as you do so. Keep a large queue of other items crafting in your normal inventory to make the most of this time. Put completed anvils back in the forge to recover all the iron used in making them.
    13. Like anvils, making bullet tips, shell casings, and gunpowder (when made in the chemistry station, as you should be doing) improves your gun-smithing, but you have to keep the forge/chemistry station menu open to get the experience. I don't know if melting tips and casings back down gets you the same amount you put in.

      I like this, but I can't imagine Gavin or Geoff lasting much longer if this series continues, so they may be a little narrow in who they assign roles to. I think it'd be awesome if more of the crew joined in, though.

      This is awesome! I'm assuming you play a lot? Also, what else do you use the coal for?

      Like I said, I've put over 550 hours into the game. Coal is primarily used to make gunpowder, used in ammunition obviously, but also landmines, pipe bombs, and dynamite/TNT, plus springs.

    Jack,

    You should replace the walls of the first floor of the bunker with Cobblestone Pillars (50).

    Then you can shoot n loot zombies with ease during the night. Also lose the door and use ramps to the 2nd floor. Zombies are attracted to doors.

    I'd really like to see them encounter a feral zombie and a zombie bears spawn. There's no chance 7dtd series could last that long though... at this rate they'd reach the day 40 in like a couple of years, lol.

    For some reason its funny to me that Geoff calls the spikes caltrops. Caltrop are small and metal that you throw on the ground. Doesnt matter since they do look like caltrops just slightly amusing to me.

    LOL Yes, the default 7 Days map was "Navezgane, Arizona". No, there is no such place in AZ. It's completely made up! Anyone who tries to say otherwise either has no bloody clue what they're talking about or are trying to sell you ocean front property there

    Jack you're right that the arrows would funnel inward if the indent is on the outside in real life, but cause video game logic, Ryan's proposal works better in the game.

      Don't you just hate it when video game logic and real life logic are opposites!?

      And so the divide widens- those gaming geniuses function less effectively in the outside world...

    Now that they have nuggets I fear Geoff and Gavin will get killed, so I would say make a chest to keep them in. Especially if Jeremy killing Gavin or being indirectly responsible for it is going to raise the chances of Gavin loosing another nugget. 


    Other than that good episode with a great ending.

    Just an idea, wouldn't it make sense to put a fence behind each caltrop so they get hurt while trying to break down the fence and it will slow them down? Or do they just climb over it

      It could work, but it'd mean 50% less spikes since it would take 2 rings for 1 ring of spikes, but it would require the fact that zombies didn't break the fence, but any zombie that died to the spike would die as a block above the spike, dropping when the spikes broken then the next zombie would climb the corpse block, walk along the top of the fence and hope down past it.
