As we approach December 13th, we're excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this game. This Thanksgiving not only marks a time of gratitude but also commemorates the 11th anniversary since the game's conception. Currently, our dedicated team is diligently working on the 22nd major release.

It's incredible to reflect on our journey as The Fun Pimps, growing from a team of 3 to a robust group of over 60 individuals. Throughout this decade, we've consistently invested 90% of our resources into our passion project, 7 Days to Die, and this commitment remains unwavering. If this isn't a labor of love, we're not sure what is.

We invite you to show your support by voting for your favorite deserving survival game. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey!

Sincerely,
The Fun Pimps]]>
A21.2 b30 Stable https://7daystodie-servers.com/blog/254/a212-b30-stable/ https://7daystodie-servers.com/blog/254/a212-b30-stable/ Mon, 20 Nov 2023 19:53 CET
Just in time for the extended Thanksgiving Weekend, TFP is proud to present A21.2 Stable! With the entire 7 Days to Die team working tirelessly to roll out A22 as soon as possible, we've implemented numerous fixes and changes that we know you'll love!

This latest release adds a much anticipated feature: Death penalty options! You can now choose from Nothing, Classic, Injured (respawn with most debuffs still active), and Perma-death (your entire profile is wiped, and you start fresh in the same savegame).

We've also added the ability to lock inventory slots. Click the arrow buttons to indicate how many slots to lock, starting from the top left-most slot in the Player Inventory. Those locked slots will be unaffected by the Sort Inventory, Fill Stacks, and Move all buttons. This is a great way to ensure you have your required Ammo, Food and Water, or Medical Supplies on you at all times to fully augment your playstyle.

The drone also got some love, with emphasis on several fixes for lost drones and improve pathing in certain situations. This should result in fewer drones getting stuck.

For a more comprehensive list of updates included in this release, please refer to the complete changelog below.

From all us us at TFP, we wish you a joyous and Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we bring to you A21.2 with an all new "Death Penalty" setting, allowing you to choose between different penalties for someone's demise, including a total wipe of your character.
For dedicated servers you will need to have this line added in the serverconfig to start fresh or continue an old save:
<property name="DeathPenalty" value="1" /> <!-- Penalty after dying. 0 = Nothing. 1 = Default: Classic XP Penalty. 2 = Injured: You keep most of your debuffs. Food and Water is set to 50% on respawn. 3 = Permanent Death: Your character is completely reset. You will respawn with a fresh start within the saved game. -->

To opt in and give feedback follow these steps:
  1. Right click on the game in steam
  2. Click on properties
  3. Click the “betas” tab
  4. The drop down menu will have latest_experimental available <— you want THAT

As we approach the stable release of A21.1, we are pleased to present a small hotfix patch for you.

Fixes
  • Twitch Cooldown is disabled when shared quest is removed while on an active quest.
  • Server Browser error on search
  • Server can no longer be started with an invalid port
