    It's right in the text at the top.
    Thanks. I didn't read that one. I jumped right to the changes and fixes. The text above is usually less interesting for me.

      Just started our current A18.2 b4 server as an 18.3 server and it seems to be working just fine. We are not having any issues that we can see. In fact, the frame rates on my rig are significantly higher and seem to be much more stable.

      Thank you Fun Pimps for whatever frame rate optimizations you have made. They have not gone unnoticed.

          Bug fixes are done in the A19 trunk and then those deemed to be "must fix" and "safe" by the developers are brought over to the A18 branch. A18.3 was primarily about localization. Nothing, no matter how important you personally feel it might be, took priority over localization for A18.3 which is why there are so few changes other than those having to do with languages.

          We have been assured that A18.4 will get more other non-localization fixes and changes. If a bug fix doesn't ever make it into the A18 branch then it is because it was decided to not be critical and/or it was seen as too risky. Nobody wants to break A18 and then have to spend time fixing it. The future resides with A19 and so that is where most of the work is happening and only some of it will trickle back to A18.
          Nicely said. Few people understand how bug fixing and stuff works in a games development cycle so this type of info will help those understand. *fist bump*

            Hey, I'm having some issues getting my server updated and the 18.2 b4 game world and saves. Would you mind running me through the process?

              I just updated to the 18.3 and now I have no words I do see them for like the new game and quit all of them but when I click it there is no back start or any thing like that just a red block there

                There's a link to the bug thread in that part you quoted. QA guys aren't checking this one. This was just the announcement

                  Good work on this!

                  As a long time whining player of this very unique game, Alpha 18 is the best Alpha I've played since 16.4. And I lived in that Alpha version. The optimization in Alpha 18 is very evident, the inclusion of the spear (brilliant) makes ghosting a poi very doable and enjoyable now. The beautiful textures of the new icons. And the artwork in general is really nice and detailed. Great work all round.

                  I rarely enter a poi that I don't find enjoyable. The shotgun messiah factory, is a dream run. The more gnarly, twisting, boobie-trapped large crumbling deathtrap-factories, the better : )

                  The decision to mostly take the zeds out of the rafters and closets was a good one guys. Horror is ineffective if it it served to you like cake. I think you need to utilize sound more to scratch at the subconscious of the player. In fact, some sounds in general need a little work, but I'm confident you guys have known that for a while. I mean, you only have so much time to prioritize right?

                  Very enjoyable experience. Some of it does need tweaking, but I'm sure you guys are going to do this right; and give us great things in the future also. I wish all the team, from the coders to the artists and the very important relentless testers the very best for the new year.

                  Thanks for listening Joel.

                  Thanks!

                    The client side has stable and exp at the same build, but not on the server depots.

                    I just flipped everything to non-experimental for now.

                    (and of course, will have to flip again when 18.4 exp drops)

                      I noticed an overall positive bump in frame rates, enough to notice it as I'm constantly monitoring my FPS live via steam tool and my monitor's native feature. Thanks for all the work!

                        I started a new game, and so far all I am getting at night are feral zombies and even cops. I am only level 4 and playing on second difficulty!

                          Welcome to alpha 18. There are ferals during the night, no matter how low your gamestage is. I would recommend staying in at night until your character is strong enough to handle them.

                            I think there is another vehicle dupe. Happened to me with the motorcycle on our 18.3 rented server. Don't have repro steps yet but it has happened twice so far. It might have something to do with mounting the bike and logging off and/or shutting down and restarting server...

                              I always experience this in MP with all of the vehicles. The server admin made it a rule to pickup the vehicles when logging off but I'm thinking that is the cause of the duplication. I've had my vehicle reappear where I got on it in-game days ago.

                                I keep getting an error and not able to figure out what is causing it and was wondering if anyone new about this error .. usually starts about day 12 in my game.

                                Running Win 10 pro .. 4.0 gb cpu .. GTX 1070ti video .. 32 ram on a 4 SSD system:

                                Shows in RED _ [Physics.PhysX] QuickHullConvexHullLib: :FindSimplex: Simplex input points appears to be coplanar.

                                In the F1 screen .. but the game will run fine or seems to .. at first I thought it due to building a Floating base .. so I have started to built a solid ground base and still is happening.

                                Thank you for any help .. and yes I have a few mods in game .. But they are the same mods used during A17 .. BUT Have been updated to A 18.3 Stable and this just started using the latest version of game.
