Alpha 6
I've just had confirmation from fibreservers that the new alpha 6 will be released.

Now im abit confused by they saying today but heres the email,

We would like to let you know that Alpha 6 is almost ready! some of our staff including me have been beta testing Alpha 6 over the last 2 weeks and have been amazed with the progress, we have had confirmation today that the release will be midnight tonight US time, we will have the files ready for download in about 10 hours from now but please don't re-install your server if you still want to play because your server will be on Alpha 6 and you won't be able to play until steam releases the update. We will send another email out when you are able to re-install your server into Alpha 6.

Many Thanks

Fibre Servers Staff

Possible delays

Please remember this is in Alpha Stage and many bugs and issues can arise. Server provider was probably told a date and time but didn't expect the delays as things were probably running smoothly. Dev Team are currently working hard on this and we hopefully hear something soon.

Update News: 13:05 GMT+0
We have been testing Alpha 6 and have found that we can't run the same control panel port as the game server port now so this has caused us some issues as some of you may have noticed, we have tried some thing out that have only made things worse so what we are going to do is update these ports manually for you so this means we are going to have to lock the panel while we work on this, there will be no downtime to your server you just won't be able to make any changes until we have finished.

If things go well with the 7 days team Alpha 6 will be out some time today so the quicker we can get this done the better and its lucky that we have beta access and found this early as all other hosts will now have this issue after Alpha 6 is released.

Please stand by and we will be starting this in the next hour and will be done in 3-4 hours but as i say there will be no down time so take a copy of your ip and port before we disable the game panel.

14/01/14 - 19:00 GMT+0 - Doesn't make sense so i've contacted what this means.
Hi everybody,

Due to the release of the new Alpha 6, we are fixing up some bugs with the game files and updating the Control Panel Ports. The new web control panel port will be +2 of the game port. If you play 7 Days to Die, make sure to restart your server before you try to connect, otherwise these updates will not take effect.

Please enjoy the new Alpha 6 for 7D2D, and thank you!

Fibre Servers Support Team

Many Thanks

Fibre Server Staff

So stop blaming them they were given a date but delays do happen.

As alot of us know that alpha 6 is very close to being release but no one knows exact day and time so please understand that this post was to update people not to cause massive arguments. If you have any issues with the release please visit the official forums on 7days to die and make your complaint there.

Alot of people do which is why I say they should do what I do.

I know a few people who play starbound and refuse to play it anymore because of the save wiping.

It is to be expected with this early of a release. I however do agree i did the same with Starbound but started it up again and played more. With games in early release this is unfortunately the "expected behavior".

Hope alpha 6 is tonight, will wipe my 5 server and started up the alpha 6 for me and my buddies. this time with cheat mode properly disabled, since we scavenge like crazy.

Considering that on one of the servers I play on a lot of TNT testing is done, new maps are required.. >.>
Redlin3 Jan 13, 2014 @ 7:53am

(VS)Stark Jan 13, 2014 @ 8:46am

yes wolfe, the snow biom will know our touch. People will whisper of the snow folk, whisper in terror clutching the few remaining grains left in storage.

I guess it's time for me to kiss my makeshift fort goodbye... Just when I was expanding the pit.

R.I.P w/love, Fort...

I don't mind the wipe atm. Gives incentives to try something fresh every time.
