    I think it would awesome to have have creatures from real Western and Native American lore such as the Si-Te-Cah (The Red Headed Giant Cannibals), Sasquatch (Bigfoot), Teihiihan (Cannibal Dwarves), etc. I think these could be implemented much the same way as the Zombies, but have some actual Western lore behind them.

    I know! I'm so intrigued about hunting and fishing in this setting. A rich pristine environment full of plagued bunnies and squirrels. Imagine setting traps (hopefully you can) and you trap an infected animal...How's it play out? Do you just leave It? Lose your trap? Or do you kill it and run the risk if maybe infection when removing it....or maybe another animal sees the trap, eats the infected bunny and now there is a hyper aggressive infected wolf lurking near

    Dear Community, we thought it's a good idea to release a little sum-up of what we've worked on the last few weeks, the list also includes 'behind the scenes' stuff which we haven't covered on our site yet, hopefully this gives you guys a good update on our progress. Engine: Our first prototype has been updated to Unity's 2017.4 LTS (Long Term Stability), which we plan to use for our first release. This version is guaranteed to receive bugfixes without major changes which could break backward compatibility. This version has also been the most stable one for us so far. Terrain: Progress is looking good, we also had some major workflow improvements. Networking: All player movements are now double-checked by the server instance (authoritative movement) to address teleport- and no-clip hacks. Networking: Interpolation added. Networking: Dead reckoning added. Networking: Lag compensation is still being worked on. Combat: Damage drop off for range weapons is now properly calculated. Character: Improved character controller handling on slopes. Character: Weapon handling has been optimized when activating/deactivating them. Animations: Workflow improved for animation retargeting (especially for motion captured ones). Weapons: 1866 Yellowboy Rifle added (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/979384778855247873). Weapons: 1861 Navy Conversion Revolver added (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/979747245422776320). Weapons: 1860 Double Barrel Shotgun added (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/980102521426497536). Weapons: 1874 Sharps Rifle added (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/981503473819713538). Weapons: Tomahawk added, melee combat still needs some love though (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/983724748076208128). Weapons: 1858 New Model Army Revolver added (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/988703525369733120). Weapons: Sticky bomb added (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/992008560912601088). Shader: Various post-processing stack improvements. Shader: New ambient occlusion modes added (MSVO and SAO). Shader: Our character skin shader is almost finished (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/980909856361275392). Shader: We've implemented a motion blur shader which relies on the moving object instead of the player's camera (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/984723884367892480 ). Shader: Volumetric lighting improved. UI: There is some good progress on our UI, nothing to show yet, but we posted an early mockup from some months ago (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/981153951218270209). Environment: We finished our grass shader with physically based shading support (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/981917793812697090). Environment: Our grass shader also supports touch bending now (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/983345950042345473). Environment: Mesh blending has been added (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/982299162569035777). Environment: New canyon walls (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/993926569491140609). Props: We continuously working on adding new props (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/982702739250733056, https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/984137263062937611, https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/990934430691790848). Placements: A new feature has been added which removes all kind of foliage for dynamic placements. (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/985960044469587970). Equipment: Tribal mask added (head item, https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/987298912259248128). Particles: We improved our particles in regards to lighting (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/989497266582052865). Particles: Worked on our revolver muzzle flash (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/995994191510605825). Farming: We made great progress on our crop/tree grow system, which is also fully server-synced and runs with almost no performance cost (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/997478138169970688). Environment: Our ore spawning algorithm got some love (https://twitter.com/DeadMansCountry/status/999247022539583488). API: A device token has been added, which will later be used as a parameter to identify account hacks. Forum: News & Announcements module added (you are here!). Please note that the list is in no particular order and doesn't include bugfixes, the later will be listed with the start of the alpha on a separate release-/changelog page.

    I know things have gone a bit quieter since the initial reveal of DMC but I just want to let you devs know I am still HYPED! Hope your days are productive and can't wait to see some more in game footage!

    I just came across this today. Not saying any of this is true, but videos like these may start making these things more popular. Living in Wyoming and being part Native American myself these things interest me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9SOFiTG9Ng

    Any chance you can explain a bit about the building system? Looks like we start off with a structure then upgrade it to a cabin? Will there be more than one model and different sizes? How are building areas delineated? Is it free build in your realm? Can't for Dev Blog #1

    Wir haben uns noch nicht auf eine Zeit festgelegt, jedoch werden es keine 24 Stunden sein, wir hatten eher an 2-4 Stunden gedacht, ansonsten würden Spieler die z.B. nur Abends spielen können, eher selten andere Uhrzeiten zu Gesicht bekommen.

    I agree it'll not be an easy job, but the alternative would be a very limited building area and/or pre-defined building slots, both wouldn't fit in our concept. Some of the bugs/exploits you mentioned can be fixed by adding a minimum distance radius to each object (except walls), which is something we're currently working on. As for walls, we could allow the AI to climb/jump over/destroy them depending on the size/strength of the controlled entity.

    It's simple. Post a song title with the next letter in the Alphabet. Guideline: Keep the song (and videos) PEGI 13. Type the name of the song (and artist) in your post, don't merely copy&paste a link to the video. Try no to post the same song twice (use search function). Like the song? Use the like function of the forums. (Quoting will increase the loading time of the thread.) When your title starts with a number, just handle it as you would write the number in full; ie. 2 = Two. Use the newest post to base the next letter on. PS : it's A - B - C - D - E - F - G - H -I - J - K - L - M - N - O - P - Q - R - S -T -U - V - W - X - Y - Z - A - B - ... I'll kick off with the letter A: Awoo - Sofi Tukker

    The dollar is the main currency in Dead Man's Country, but there are some NPC's which require special items in order to trade with them. Players will probably prefer water over hard cash because of its limitation. Yes, players will be able to trade through a traditional trade-window.

    Das Bausystem bietet mehrere Gebäude, nicht nur solche die für das Housing benötigt werden, sondern auch jene, die man aktiv für den Betrieb der Farm nutzen kann. Beispielsweise ist es möglich einen Wassertank zu bauen um Regenwasser zu sammeln, oder einen Schuppen um Gerätschaften zu verstauen. Größere Gebäude werden immer in mehreren Stufen erbaut, ähnlich wie es auf unserer Webseite dargestellt wird. Neben Gebäuden gibt es auch kleinere Gegenstände zum platzieren wie z.b. Brunnen, Zäune oder Lagerfeuer. Im Prinzip alles was man für eine Farm oder kleine Stadt benötigt. Es wird vordefinierte Bereiche geben, welche ausreichend groß sein werden. Dadurch verhindern wir das Spieler keine Gebäude oder Gegenstände an wichtigen Punkten oder Dungeon-Eingängen platzieren.

    Sure, there will be multiple structures, the cabin on the website is only one of them, you'll also be able to build various other building types, like sheds or water tanks (used to collect rainwater). All bigger buildings are constructed in multiple steps, while each step requires different resources. Beside buildings, there are also smaller placements like wells, fences or campfires, basically everything you need to build a farm or a small town. We'll define multiple building areas on the map to avoid players placing their structures on dungeon entrances or other points of interest.

    Alle Gebiete und Dungeons in DMC werden von unseren Leveldesignern gestaltet und gebaut. Wir können damit sicherstellen, dass die Gebiete genügend interessante Orte und Inhalte bieten. Um in jeder Spielerwelt etwas Variation zu bieten, geben wir dem Spieler die Möglichkeit seine eigene Gebäude zu gestalten.

    Indeed, we have some good ideas in the back of our heads regarding the story of DMC. I can guarantee you that the zombies will not just be "there". Our current plan is to tell the story through various NPC's and encounters. The player has to put the gathered parts of the story (and cause of the plague) together, similar to games like Dark Souls and Zelda.

    Ja, daran wird gearbeitet. Es ist allerdings nicht vor dem Early Access Release damit zu rechnen. Mehr Infos auf unserer Roadmap

    It would be possible to disable certain NPC's or NPC groups, which means we *could* add that option to the realm settings. But I have to agree with @massivelyindie , it may get quite boring if you fight the standard wildlife/bandits NPC's day for day. The zombie/plague system is meant to have some room for a difficulty increase and variety, e.g. by adding boss/elite-types of enemies. I suggest to wait for the first few gameplay videos before you ditch your interest.
