    Building and creating paths to direct waves of relatively dumb enemies and using traps to delay / kill them.

    That's what you do in TD games.

      A serious reply from Gazz? Are you ill or is DaVegaNL holding you in his cellar on gun point? Blink twice if you can't talk freely

      PS: Ac75, try to compare 7D2D to an action-TD game like Dungeon Defenders and you will be hard pressed to find fundamental differences. All that is keeping 7D2D from reaching the full potential of a typical TD game is a somewhat too short pathing distance of the zombies, limited because of highly changeable terrian being a challenge to pathing and therefore performance reasons AFAIK.

          In addition to what Gazz said:

          2) You build or fortify a tower(base) and defend it.

          3) There are alternating periods of time when you are under attack by waves of enemies and when you are free to upgrade and prepare your defenses.

          4) There is no end. The cycle continues until you are overwhelmed or you’ve had enough.

          5) Some defenses are more or less effective against different enemy types.

            really any hoard base game could be a Tower defense IMO

              You don't defend your towers. I've never seen a TD game where you defend the towers you build. You defend some core or other maguffin that the enemies are trying to get to.

                  I didn't use the plural form of tower so why did you add it? You do defend a core or other maguffin in this game that the enemies are trying to get to. The difference is you build it or fortify an existing structure. That's what I meant by "tower" with the singular. You are defending your base. In this game that could be a tower, a bunker, a compound, whatever you want to defend. Yes, technically they are actually after you personally but that inevitably turns into you defending whatever structure you are in as well.

                  Sheesh....we are talking in generalities here. This really shouldn't be this hard for people to make such obvious connections and parallels....

                    The only thing I can actually give feedback on is the aesthetics of the ores. Before there were posts
                    from players that suffer from color blindness. I even did a temporary texture change to help some.
                    The individual shapes even though a visual change, being 3d markers would seem to help open the
                    game to a greater audience. That does show Designers/Creators listening to feedback directly.

                      Your friendly neighborhood bard popping in to remind you this thread was dug up from two months ago. I am unsure if that's a necropost; judge for yourselves! Current posts start on Page 11. That is all.

                        Since someone else thought I was being insulting let me explain. I posted an explanation in another thread and Ac75 stated that it was much too long to be worth reading. I was referencing that here. "Reading cap" as in the cap on number of words you are willing to read and not "Reading cap" as in your ability to read and comprehend. Not an insult but just a joke based on your response to me earlier. Its funny that you dismissed my earlier explanation but now want me to spend time crafting a new explanation for something else just so that you can just dismiss it again if it has too many characters.

                        I edited my original post to be more clear. Apologies if what I originally wrote came across as insulting.

                          No, it wouldn’t be “beyond my reading cap”. No reason to be insulting, I’m all ears.

                          How is 7 Days to Die like a Tower Defense game?

                          Name some or any elements of a Tower Defense game that are in 7 Days to Die.
                          Umm...on horde night, a fixed ammount of zombies GPS directly to your location until you either kill them or you die? Hows that?

                          Here is another TD game that I wrote over with 7 days to die elements in it.
