    How many people read steam reviews anyway? These days you just go to Youtube to see if you find a game interesting or not.

      Also, recent reviews are very positive, which is so nice to see. Great work guys!
      Would it be wrong of me to encourage everyone right now to go play the game to get to 36K....?

This makes the tiny amount of bad reviews there actually is parked on top of the first default review page you see. If you guys have some ♥♥♥♥s to give, you could go there and click thumbs up the positive reviews so we can drown out these 10 guys who are probably mad they got Banned and are marking every bad review helpful.

          Steams system is stupid. No one review is more helpful than the next, and haters can skew the perception. Lets fight hate with love and give the positive reviews some love guys, thanks.
          Don't react to the bullying. It just energizes their efforts.

            I read the word "cybersec" wrong. So, so wrong...

              Congratulations on the new record!

              I went through and read some of the bad reviews, and saw one that put in a bad review just because he/she couldn't play his/her A17.4 saved game in A18 and couldn't understand why.

              I explained that a new alpha would most likely require a wipe, and explained that he/she could always go back to old alphas if needed. He/she was happy to know about this and said that he/she would go back to A17.4, finish what he/she was building there off, and then enjoy playing A18.

              It may be a good idea to write in the Alpha 18 patch note and the Alpha 18 Stable is out! announcement that a new save is required. It's an obvious fact for long time players, but for those who only started recently, and don't even know about this forum, it may be a bit confusing.

                  Maybe tomorrow as most people are playing at 20:00 which requires that everyone has the game running in the build up to that time, I'm sure 36K is doable

There is no xml override to use, any other block placed just takes whatever the splat dictated for that position. Just give us the option to tell a block to override the splat and modders will take it from there. This is severely limiting for anyone wanting even a slightly different world. I am not sure why you are so unwilling to see that your new awesome system destroyed a lot of modding design-space and creative potential..
                    Seconded.

                    I know y'all aren't ready to hear modding issue, but it seems to me that when you are ready, it would have been a lot easier to fix/change early on.

                      How old are you? May want to look up the term brigading. That sort of thing can backfire big time.
                      Got to agree on this one. Especially the backfire part. Once you start manipulating data you lose face and trust.

                        ...really...

                        If I was so inclined, I could now say "the developers are begging for positive reviews, the game is that bad! All they care about is money, not making a good game!"

                        ...really gotta watch what you say homie.

                        So yes, sit idly by and let the awesomeness of your product do the work for you.

                        36k playing. Nuff said.

                          The blunderbuss is actually kinda amazing.

                          Strength and blunderbuss is pretty much my go to now for every game I play.

                            First, you cannot tell me that the workbench is a gate at the time you would be crafting a T5 item.

                            Are you saying that the iron crossbow that you crafted was gated by a book? If so, that's a bug.
                            I think he probably meant compound crossbow

If I'm gonna resort to using my AK I might aswell just spec into FORT and thus machine guns. The odd dude in the wild is easily dispatched with a decent sledgehammer anyways.
                              Don't get me wrong I think anything can be improved but if you get to a point when you have enough ammo to run a machinegun all the time then you can get a Grandpa's elixir and reset your skill points.

                              I think all they need is to add a T3 shotgun to help make it on par with the M-60 and leave everything alone and that will help it compete for a horde night weapon. Give it a huge crippling bonus or incendiary round or something.

                              Shotguns do have a little bit more CC than an AK right now however, which is why I think I like it so much to run around with it. It's easy to shoot a groups legs out and stop them. Really nice for a pack of dogs, 1 shot can get a bunch of them. Saves ammo.

                                I mean, I get that, But it's also legitimately the T1 shotgun in game, Which makes early shotgunning just... Bad until you get a double barrel which is still... Just bad. Manageable with perks until you get the Pump, but I feel like that's not what a t2 weapon should be. your t2's should be your bread and butter, you want to hang onto them until you find or manage to get the parts for a t3 to replace it Not barely manageable if you focus on maxing the perks for it.

                                I should also note I have Used slugs That i have found and they are AWESOME from a damage perspective and do exactly what you want as an "AP" Shotgun round, I just feel that the UI for ammo switching is too clunky to swap in a situationally and slugs are too costly to craft enough to use exclusively. I'd honestly rather slugs be cheaper and less powerful so I can actually justify using them when I could make 2-4 of another type of round instead.
