Hmm It's a Bit Frustrating
So we were expecting a patch around this time, i see the development update and the important things you guys might be changing

but

It's all very well getting us excited and showing us fancy new pictures, but how many times have we seen this, going back to the when the game was put into early access we've seen many dev updates, pictures of stuff being worked on, things said like this is coming along nicely , but still we are waiting for the content

more than 12 months ago and some 14 months ago stuff like

boats - we even seen a guy with a craftable raft and oars ages ago
bikes - including motorbikes
nailgun
scythe
double weapon mags and different types of ammo
talk of wolves and mutants
npc's artwork and screenshots
talk of flame throwers and rockets for sentrys
rocket launchers
biofuel for vehicles

even a year ago you were talking about metabolism update and diseases

i could go on listing maybe list a hundred things we've been shown but nothing arrives, only different types of puppets wearing different outfits ? but no new enemies, you even talked about hiring more people and showed us pics of new devs

i get we have many new poi's but there's nothing to do in them

also many times you said optimisations in patches but still we have the same lag in towns

you also said single player would get some much love and attention, but what did you add for this, this was ages ago

sorry but its very frustrating all this

Is Gamepires chaotic in their workflow and decision making?

Thank you for asking. Yes they are. ;-)

I think the most important thing's are everything metabolism related (including cooking) as well as NPC's, mission's etc. Everything that bring's the overall Gameplay closer to it's final state so this can be polished and optimized, to make sure that the final game is not too grindy and actually makes fun. This is hard to tell from the game as it is now. I don't like the BB and raiding focus and wouldn't like this as the main survival game. Wouldn't play it for longer then 2 week's wich was in fact the case after i re-joined the game a few week's ago.

Regarding the pic's and Screenshot's. That is just the rest of the dev team sending Sippy into knifes by giving him content pic's of thing's that are not actually being worked on.

Just kidding. I guess. Maybe.
I think when the devs say that this and that is currently in developement, i wouldn't take it too literal. Can't image that weapon belt's have been in avtice developement for more then a year because the spawncodes have been in the game since release. Who know's actually.
Thing's shift. Everything can change. Nothing is final.

in my honest opinion i think they tried to follow what Rust success has had and put all work into base building, but it's not working they way they planned, players numbers have fallen dramitcally, game was better when we could only fortify buildings and they should of kept along the survival-horror game, plus still we have no idea that we are actually in tv show, nothing in the game suggests this, i wish they would drop this idea
Making new announcement...
Yet another player making drama around and unhappy with something.
Devs should really have iron patience while reading such things over and over again.
They should take a note from Arma and h1z1 just survive in terms of giving us stuff to do, make us work for the cars by only giving us a key and a clue to find and start it, we need the key to use the car, missions hostile NPC's around the bases or just driving along or even hunters that try to kill us to, just something to spice up the game is needed so it's not so PvP base raiding focused

Base building content started everyting. Devs focused on this rather than survival aspects of game (metabolis, npc, quests, new enemies) and to be honest i don't know why... Idea about making bases inside buildings was good, and They should focus on that, not on base building and all problems that it cause.

Right now I'm waiting for survival content and fresh new things, not mines, rockets and bombs to raid bases..

My Bit : Your all out of luck then . This has become a clan base-building game with all the rubbish that goes along with it.

you say it's drama but more like just stating facts, even you must admit there is very little been added for all those things we were shown

no doubt u will make some excuse about negativity and prob block this thread like many others, myself and many others have been very helpful finding and reporting bugs and trying to put input and ideas into the game

all we want is some of the stuff we've been show that's been worked on for over a year now and the things u guys have talked about being almost done, can't you see the frustration here ?

since they are the ones who announced/teased/promised all the stuff ... yes they better have iron patience^^
I think "A bit frustrated" is totally justified, as I am sure many are feeling the same way including myself.

That is definitely not drama inducing, especially if you have data to back up your reasoning.

So, many pics in the latest Dev 'update' (which is a recurring theme in this game...) but not even a few fixes for anything at all.

And Sippy should remove "Base Building" from item two on the priority list. Just make locks more difficult, fix any glaring building bugs and immediately put basebuilding on the backburner thanks... The main game has suffered enough.

Can't believe you guys don't play your own game... Lol?

I read somewhere where Leva Opaki plays it almost every day. Or some prototype version with included content (Lucky bugger...)

Anyway, really needed thread. Thanks MS Green Label and Faustus as always.

I wouldn’t even reply to this thread if some other user start it. But I explained you everything personally about why this or that is delayed in past in multiple threads in past already. Honestly Im not surprised to see yet another similar thread from you.
“EA” and “its ready when its ready” are still exist and nothing changed here.
But one more time, with NPC soldiers as example - some things was in game even before EA starts. But many things was cut out for different reasons (mostly because of optimization, netcode and because this mechanics/stuff will be affected by different mechanics/stuff which are planned to be in game earlier and be foundation of core gameplay). Bikes, boats and lot of stuff was announced long time ago, but priorities are not static and many aspects can lead to changing of priorities.
And you have similar answers by developers already. But lets create another thread to have another similar answer!
Whats the point, really? Its ok if one user create thread with some questions asked before. But one user creating similar threads time to time while he already have answers multiple times - is questionable at best.
I don't know why Steam moderators start getting all defensive when we talk about the game, nobody is being disrespectful and it's not their job to block threads unless it's against Steam rules aren't they supposed to be mutual and protect customers and developers ?

I've seen many threads blocked about this game, some are granted yes, but it seems certain Steam moderators jump on any negativity surrounding this game quicker than anything, all we are trying to do is find out some answers on why we are shown pics of content week after week that never arrives ?

That's very normal in developement for all studios. That's why playtesting exist's.

Don't want to chime in but point for you.

@MS. Green Label: Part of Moderation is to keep a respectful and constructive Environment in the forum's. If this is realy the x-time same stuff has been discussed then he is right.

Not saying that the confusion part isn't true, but we have to go with it.
