    it's hard to discuss ideas when posts are not even taken seriously. Guess we can only wait.

    hope I get to play the same game testers are playing tho, because so far no one seems to experience the same as them.

      Is there going to be the animation overhaul at some point? I mean, even comparing to many indie 1st person games you can clearly see the difference in animations, how smooth they are, well made etc. and in 7DTD they aren't. To me, it just breaks the immersion(slightly but nonetheless).

        I turn them on for all plants and trees because visual feedback is important. Why are you staring at your crops that close unless you are either planting or harvesting?

          +1 for removing the XP popup entirely. If anything, make it so people can at least mod it back if they want it.

            Here's an easy one...I personally think that punching plants is stupid and kinda cheap. Any chance we'll see an actual picking of plants return in the future? Or at least a tool that we could use for picking so that you start off with punching but progress to picking with a tool for better harvest amounts?
            Use a knife : it becomes realistic.

              We just hired a guy who did all the first person crazy cool animations on a very popular AAA game and his first tasks are to improve the stone axe, bow and club so people's first impressions should be much better, so hopefully people will start seeing his work in A18.

                Maybe when he’s free he can figure out how to get the lids off jars before drinking from them?

                    Wow now that is good news, the animations are some of my biggest gripes sort of, they just don't have enough Strength behind them, especially the melee weapons.

                      You probably just need some cloth fragments so you can get a better grip on the lid of the jar...

                        Posts are taken seriously in this thread when they are on topic. Madmole has repeatedly stated that LBD is not coming back so in light of that I’m not sure what you expect. If I started asking about zip lines or mini maps or grid based crafting I wouldn’t expect a serious answer as those features have also been dropped.

                        As for getting the same game as the testers? You have it. The released experimental version was the exact same build that was the latest testing build behind closed doors. As we all played the experimental build so did the internal testers— often seeking to reproduce bugs and create tickets for them that were listed in the bug reporting thread.

                        There is no secret game that is different than the public version. When A18 is ready it will be the same version that gets released as the testers and developers have been working on.

                          If this was in response to my post directly above yours then please accept my apologies. I was not aware that my question had been discussed and decided on.

                          I guess I have my answer about a tool...it already exists! Nice one. Guess I'm getting to old to think too much outside of the box anymore. I can learn and adapt still so I got that going for me. Thanks for the advice.

                            Don't mind me, just waiting for 17.3 to drop. Also I like your new profile Roland

                              I didn’t have any one person in mind. No worries. Just giving warning that further LBD discussion will be moved to a GD thread. If I have to read one more explanation about teabagging cacti by Madmole my eyes may start bleeding...

                                Thanks but I’ve had it awhile now and was thinking about changing to one like Unholy Joe where I’m sporting my shirt. I think my current avatar makes people think I’m meaner and less light-hearted than I actually am.

                                How can a smilie compensate for that narrow eyed glare....?
