    From downtown!!!!
  4. First off, thank you to everyone who participated in our most recent poll! We will be doing more of these in the future to help with the development road map and with gathering community feedback on upcoming ideas. For the next few days, lets get a discussion going on what you would like to see from the currency system. How would you like to earn currency? What items would you like to see from traders? What is your vision for how traders would work? Where would traders be located? What are your thoughts on limited time traders that have a shifting inventory? Please feel free to add any other thoughts you have. We have a general vision of how things will look, but it's very important that we hear from the community about this as well. We are excited to hear your feedback and look forward to working with all of you to help build something everyone will enjoy. With the development of the currency system, it will lead later down the road to being able to be used with the Survivor Exchange (p2p buying and selling). That is still a ways out, but is something that will come in time and will tie in with being able to use currency for buying and selling.
  5. Greetings survivors! We need your feedback on what you would like to see in the next patch. Based on community suggestions and feedback, we have created a poll for you to vote on what should be in the next patch! Visit https://strawpoll.com/351hcae2 and voice your opinion today!

    Asset flipped icons.

    Utilizing assets from the unreal store helps to speed up development. Without these assets, it would take 10 times longer to make everything. Most of the assets that are being used (like the bandages and medkits) are placeholders until our artists can make new ones.

    Game is already boring

    We've got some cool stuff in the works. Hopefully once the new content gets added over the next few months, we can spark your interest. We aren't giving up and you shouldn't either

    What is being done with cheaters

    Report them in game and they will be checked. We've banned well over 200 already and aren't stopping any time soon.

    Keep in mind, loot has always been scaled based on population. At no time was it ever the same. As a matter of fact during alpha, servers under 5 people were less than it is today. This was changed due to feedback and honestly, I have yet to have any trouble looting full backpacks in the military areas on a low pop server.

    2200 for a server of 35

    The loot nerf was reverted over a week ago...........A lot of people are waiting for the new events to be added so there is more to do. These are on the way, but being a small team, it does take time to code in.

    Thanks for the ideas! I can tell you put some time into it!

    I tested this a couple of days ago with QA and confirmed that it does log out the same as if you would hit the leave server button.

    Early Access Patch #2

    Greetings Survivors! We will be deploying our 2nd Early Access Patch at 5:00AM CST today. We hope you will enjoy the changes and content that has been added and look forward to your feedback. As a reminder, don't forget to leave a review if you haven't yet! Top Features New Servers "First Person Only" servers have been added. These will remain limited during the initial rollout. "No Group System" servers have been added. These will remain limited during the initial rollout. Skill Rating Reset Due to a previous bug that caused players to gain an unintended advantage over other players by reducing gun recoil, we have reset everyone's skill rating back to 500. After evaluating the impact of the bug, the team determined that enough players had been impacted by the bug that it would only be fair to reset all skill ratings and allow players to compete on a level playing field now that the bug has been fixed. Streamer Mode There is now an option in settings to enable streamer mode Player list will show player IDs, rather than names On death, killer will be displayed as player ID When looking at another player, it will be displayed as an ID When grouping, invitations and member list will be ids Updates Loot Increased minimum loot for 1-5 player servers to 1800 (was 900) Drones Damage reduced to 50% (was 65%) HUD Moved compass to top middle of HUD Compass direction will now update when freelooking and while on vehicles Added current experience & xp required for next level to HUD Loading screen Added new art to loading screen Compound Event Added more props around the compound events to help with pushes Added 2 doors in each corner to enter the compounds Connection Increased initial connection timeout to 180 seconds (for lower-end pcs that load the map slower) Weather system Reduced duration of "Foggy" weather condition to 7 minutes (was 15 minutes) Reduced fog amount for "light rain" and "heavy rain" weather conditions Player Menu Added user icon next to your own user to find yourself quicker Inventory Medical items will now auto-equip if you don't have one in your quick-med Global Inventory Fixed an issue causing items to not store correctly in the global inventory when moving items quickly Group System Each group member now has a unique colour Group member icon will turn to a skull when dead Fixed an issue causing group tags to not correctly show over the head when on smaller resolutions Death Menu Added buttons for both north and south safe settlement spawns Map Added 3 civilian bunkers to the map Fixed various fences you could not shoot through Fixed some trees you could parachute and glitch into Player Added additional checks when player spawns to prevent invalid characters being spawned Improved player hitbox so it's not as bulky Recoil System Completely re-worked recoil system which is not FPS dependant Recoil system now supports patterns for every gun (unique patterns will be implemented in the coming patches) Combat / Weapons Added bullet tracers (Still experimental, expect issues) You can now cancel a reload animation by changing weapons and quick-medding Fixed an issue causing weapon to reload into 1 bullet when moving items in inventory during a reload Cheers, Spotted Kiwi Interactive

    Early Access Patch #2

    Thanks. We are doing all we can to bring a good balance to the game as well as get as much content out there for everyone. You are completely right that there needs to be a little something for everyone and with how many ideas we have on the table (the majority of it being from the community itself), the sky is the limit. We hope you'll check it out more once things feel right for you.

    Early Access Patch #2

    This has been suggested before. I'll try to bring it up with the team to see if it's something that they want to implement. There isn't a high demand for it.
