    I just want to start by saying I've gone through the forum and read a lot of the feedback you have all posted recently. I've been playing the game in it's current state and have opinions of my own as well. We're looking at putting out another tuning patch soon and I want to create this post to gather some input. To make this as effective as possible, and to ensure that your opinion is heard, please use this template for all responses in this thread: WHEN I PLAY AS SURVIVOR #1 thing I like: #1 thing that bugs me: WHEN I PLAY AS HUNTER #1 thing I like: #1 thing that bugs me: OVERALL #1 thing I want: I will be reading other posts so if you want to get into discussions about specific aspects of the game, please create a new topic in the forum. I will read it. If it is written in an civil and constructive manner, I'll be sure to comment...if it's written in a whiny, hate mongering manner...I'll probably just ignore it. And please remember: Survivors and Hunters need each other... or else there is no game... let's not try to alienate or demonize either side with our critiques. ...and yes, I know telebombers are the worst Thanks everyone!

    Update your game and go to your Quartermaster to get the free Gun Silencer Blueprints — which have been added to Dying Light by popular demand. The silencer doesn’t break and it has no cool down, so you can use it as much as you like. It does require special Subsonic Ammo, which you can find by looting police vans around Harran.

    Hey everyone, Towards the end of last year we asked for your feedback on the general balance of Be the Zombie mode. We were hearing that you felt the Night Hunter was underpowered, but we wanted hear your specific points on what you'd like to see us change. Thanks for all of your input - based on what you told us we have made some changes to BtZ. These changes are now live: Drop Attack (AKA 'Death from Above') Height required increased Grab distance reduced UV Flashlight Distance reduced (in 2 vs. 1 to 4 vs. 1 matches) Cool down time increased Initial cost increased (so that flicking the flashlight on and off repeatedly drains it more quickly) Spits Explosion radius increased Explosion delay reduced Effect duration for Control The Horde and Light Disable increased Cool down times decreased (in 3 vs. 1 and 4 vs. 1 matches) Survivor Sense Night Hunter now appears on Survivors' mini-map(s) for less time Misc. Auto-balance reduced overall. We hope these changes make Btz even more enjoyable for everyone and, of course, please let us know what you think. James

    Well, just spent the night in all sorts of matches, testing the new update. And let me just tl;dr right now: That was the most fun I've had in Dying Light in a while. And not just for Hunter. Sure, it was fun playing the Hunter and finally not being afraid entering 2v1s and 4v1s because of the absolute animation camp and medkit spam (which is still entirely possible), plus winning despite it. But playing Survivor? That is the hidden gem of this patch. I have not tested 4v1, but I did play a few 2 and 3v1s, mostly some 1v1s. My 1v1s: It was incredibly fun facing even an average Apex Predator, let alone the Hunter who really knew who he was doing - a game I barely won, but it felt so good and it was so fun. I felt like I was at my peak again, despite not really playing Survivor recently because of how easy it was. Had to use everything in my disposal, think on my feet, take a few risks, prioritize nests to killing the Hunter - a.k.a fight for my life against a stronger, superior being, the way it should be. For the first time, the Hunter feels like a threat, but a threat you can definitely overcome with skill and a bit of luck. In terms of balance, the Hunter this time around is slightly more likely to win a 1v1, while before the update it was the opposite situation. 2v1: The new most balanced mode. The nerf to 2-handers is surprisingly useful, but not too harsh, the spits are plentiful but definitely not too much. Both sides have the arsenal needed to take down the other side, so all that's left is skill vs skill. Nobody is favored here. 3v1: We faced a pretty good Apex Predator, while we were a fairly uncoordinated team (no offense, Cartier, much love) but individually skilled, so our overall level was around the Hunter's. Even despite that, we only had 3 spawns on the last nest to kill for the win, until we finally went down. If we had better teamwork we would've definitely won, so again - a very balanced game. I would favor a good team to beat a good Hunter in a close game here, so this in itself balances out with 1v1 mode. Autobalance was not that apparent; spits were, for the first time, effective even if they don't stick; buffed crossbow damage (not mentioned in the notes) was a nice addition; the Hunter... feels smoother to control. I can't really explain it, did you change anything in terms of his locomotion? Anyway, I will write again when I experience a 4v1 from Survivor's side. This update, at least for me, is the spark that made me love the game again. As a final note to James Gallagher: don't listen to people like the person above me - a player who exclusively plays Survivor, has 3 times less playtime than what's needed to know the PvP inside and out, and basically requires the developers to change the game to compensate for his own shortcomings. It's by listening to players like him that the PvP of this game got in its worst state by far, which was before this new update. Thank you for reading and listening to our feedback.

    My rice farm

    So the cost of the equipment and time needed to plant rice doesn't bring much profit. Especially with the 2300kg rice you can harvest and unload.. To do something while my cherries grow I have my three rice fields in Japan. To speed things up, I did this: Works well, but time consuming and workers can't do this, sadly... Nevertheless I thought I share it with my fellow farmers! Happy farming!

    Crop suggestions

    Hi, One of the things I love most about the game is the variety of different crops and how they are tied to different locations. Some of the crops I'd like to see in the game in the future: Tea - As with coffee, possibly tied to a new region, maybe India. Cotton - Possibly in China. Banana / Pineapple - Here, it could be added to the Colombian map, since it's a tropical region. Peaches / Apricots - Maybe linked to Italy. Pumpkins / Carrots - For more greenhouse variety in the USA map. Strawberry / Or any other Berry fruits - Also, maybe tied to the greenhouses in the USA map Nut Tree Orchards - Walnut, Chestnut, Pine, Hazel, Almond... These would be awesome to have. Maybe in another Mediterranean map: Spain, Greece or Turkey... or Portugal, we do have them in here as well Since several maps are already made and finding new areas for more orchards would be difficult, you could have a similar option to change orchard trees as the one you have for the greenhouses. That way, you wouldn't have to compromise on the map layout. Hope you guys give these some thought and consideration. To me, personally, I prefer this type of add-ons than just more machines. It's what gets me invested in this type of games. Thank You, and Happy Farming! Gabriel

    @PetterCZ I think we all do. For Potato harvest they have to rethink tings. Even if you put a trailer next to it, they start unloading but as soon as they have a little bit of empty room (20kg) the AI worker starts driving off. So like someone said here the only option is to fire the retarded worker and unload it by yourself and rehire someone new for the next batch. I hope we get something like the Grimme VARITRON 470 the equipment we have now is just not compatible with the AI.

    Weather forecasts

    Having this ingame would be great. Why water your field if its gonna rain?

    So when is the spit regen in team games getting nerfed? I get that you need feedback and can't act on impulse, but literally every single player, including Hunter-only players, agrees that they need a serious tone down. A minimum of 45 spits per match and going as far as 60+ is insane. While it can be quite fun surviving against nigh-impossible odds, it does not make it an equal playing field when it comes to skill. Before the update, when a skilled Hunter entered a team game of maybe slightly above-average players, he still had a sizeable chance of losing because Survivors had a better/easier/more exploitable kit. Now it's the opposite - a low-skilled Hunter can definitely take down an individually better team, just by knowing how to spam spits, spam UV heal and retreat if nothing hits. Witnessing that kind of play is, quite frankly, ugly. It's like I'm watching DFA crows and DK waiters in a Hunter version. Just like how that was a problem that was thankfully removed, this incessant spam of spits needs to go too. I don't really understand how hard it could be to change a few numeric values, but I'm not the dev here. It would be great if we could at least get a response that some kind of tweak down is coming.

    New Video: Fuel Management

    I disagree. 1. As far as I can see whatever you described about Triple A isn't happening. It's simply magically buying more fuel through your tablet, seemingly instant. 2. If everything can be roleplayed why buy the game, I'll just picture it all in my head. I think there's not alot of management going on if all you need to do is bring up your tablet and buy fuel at a higher cost. Trust me my imagination is good, but that's a bit too much. I've played plenty of simulators and I can distinguish what I need to roleplay and what would actually break immersion. I think the penalty for forgetting to fuel up should be a little more than that. If I was a real farmer and I forgot to tank up what would I do? Go to the gasstation with some jerry cans and fill them up, cursing myself on the way over and back for the lost time. I think saying "just roleplay it" is too easy. Add a little depth to the whole mechanic if you're gonna put it in. Make it feel like fueling on time matters and is a bigger part in the routine than "Oops I forgot to fuel up, better alert the magical Triple A to instantly fill my tank up".

    New Video: Fuel Management

    fabulous I am very impatient to see more content, for example see the function of mod as it will be, see the form of the missions, different details more machinery that will be added not very impressive until the moment open and wait to see how it is optimized in console

    Hey everyone, I’ll get to the point: We hear that many of the top Be the Zombie players think it could be better balanced. We want to make things better, but first we need to properly understand what changes you want to see. So we want your input on the overall balancing of BtZ. Below I’ve listed some of the variables that determine the balance of BtZ. These are things that we can either decrease or increase without necessarily needing to release a new patch. We’d like you to reply on this thread with: The top three things you think we should increase. The top three things you think we should decrease. I appreciate that you will have other suggestions for bigger changes or additions but please, for the time being, stick to what we’ve laid out here. It will really help us get a clearer picture of how you feel about BtZ. Thank you for your input and your support. Here are the variables: HUMAN UV Flashlight Damage to Night Hunter Duration Cool down time Flares Cool down time Drop attack Height required Grab radius (how close to the NH you need to be to land a Drop Attack) Grappling Hook Stamina cost Cool down time NIGHT HUNTER Damage Tackle Ground Pound Claw Spits Effect duration Cool down time UV Block Effect duration Cool down time WEAPONS (Note: damage to Night Hunter and damage to Nests are separate variables). Short knife One-handed Small two-handed Large two-handed Dropkick Pistols Rifles Arrows Crossbows

    So, with the help of @cd_BE, and with further testing, I believe we can pinpoint exactly where the problem comes from and what's causing it. It's all having to do with the two vehicles offered in the patch 1.1.2. If you don't get them, the game is stable and safe to play. I had several saves made before the updates, so I tried to buy vehicles and tools at the store and transferring them to other places. Traveled to other countries and did the same. Quit the game several times and reloaded. All of the above without ever buying any of the new vehicles offered in the patch. Whatever you do, don't buy these vehicles, because that's when the game starts to go all Twilight Zone on you. I think it's safe to say that these vehicles were not very well implemented into the game, because as soon as they enter the game, you can forget about having a smooth experience. So, that's it. The game is not as bad as I thought it was, after the updates. Just stay away from those new vehicles. Hope you guys have other saves from before the updates. If not, you can try a new game, as long as you don't get the new vehicles (the ones that appear as 0€$ in the store).

    The hire/rehire is the best way to harvest potato's atm. But I sold everything that has anything to do with potatoes. It's like you said it's that bad even worse.

    A great start!

    I agree, there are some quality of life, controls, day length, and camera issues but in general, I'm liking it. I agree 100% of the updating mini-map - that's probably one of my favorite features as well as the integrated Tablet themed UI, that's a nice touch making it feel more modern. I like that there's a "tutorial" to help you get familiar with the game elements and they seem to explain things a bit better. I don't mind the amount of equipment they have so far at all. Other farm sims can be a bit overwhelming with all the different types of equipment all at once that you have no idea what 90% of it is for. This one paces you a little better in the "My Farm" scenario, which does a good job of introducing you to farming if you're new to the genre, which I like. I like the idea of having to use your own equipment for the missions too, it is interesting to say the least if you are familiar with the farming game genre. On the other hand though, I liked doing missions in another farming game that provided you the equipment because you were able to try out new/different/bigger equipment, which helped you further on when making purchasing choices. Rather than the save game>rent equipment>try it out>reload saved game method. Edit: I also REALLY like the field status window that pops up on the right of the screen when near/in the field that gives you all the pertinent info regarding its status and the percentage of each variable. Very comprehensive and quickly lets you know what to prioritize. The other good thing is the developers seem to be listening to some of the issues we are having and have already mentioned several things they are working on for the next patch to tweak things a bit better. For the most part, I feel it's been a very smooth launch. Good Job Devs! I am eager for what will come in the future!

    A great start!

    Hey all, long time simulator gamer here. Just wanted to say I'm enjoying this game so far. Haven't played through the whole campaign yet but so far I really like the crop diversity. The amount of things to do for money is great. The missions system is great too. I love that I need to use my own equipment. The equipment maintenance is a nice touch too. I also love that the mini map updates in real time. Irrigation is a thing! I mean there a re lot of great features here. I'm really impressed. So far I think people are being a bit harsh. Yes I know we need more equipment. THAT'S EASY! It'll come. The bones of this game is great. I can't wait to see more. Lets give them some positive feedback, as well as negative. I hope to see some tweaks in the game soon and new equipment on the horizon. I'm sure there's a long list of changes they want to make based on the feedback I've seen. I hope to see list get shorter soon. Thanks for a great game so far. Here's to making it even better!

    Cheaters communities hackers

    I'm not sure why you guys even go on about this. Different people like to play games different ways, if they find a hack for the game on psn, so what? That's the way they choose to play the game, it shouldn't be effecting you because it's not like this game is pvp. Games are meant to be enjoyed by the gamer who plays them however he wants to. Yeah I've used a few cheats myself i won't lie. But there are reasons for sometimes using cheats. For one i know in dying light, getting gold tier weapons is ridiculously difficult, getting stuff that sells for enough money to buy the ridiculously overpriced weapons is also super difficult. Some of us work and actually have lives apart from gaming so the fact that we have to now spend hours and hours grinding on one game just to get to where we want to be, isn't a possibility. I personally think that if the developers are going to fix hacks then at least look into the kind of stuff people are hacking and why they are hacking them. Like honestly things are crazy expensive in this game. And secondly i don't know why in the world the developers are still patching hacks when this game came out a million years ago. Like honestly leave the hacks in the game or make things easier to find and bring down the ridiculous cost of weapons, sometimes i don't even enjoy the game i just get irritated of how stupid expensive stuff are and how difficult is to find certain things.

    Hey everyone, quick update for you: today we’ve returned Survivor Sense to how it was before this update. We really appreciate all of the feedback you’ve given us since the update and we’re reading all of it very closely. Balancing an asymmetrical game mode like BtZ is a challenge, but your input helps us immensely, so thank you. Right now we’re reviewing everything you’re telling us, and we’ll of course keep you informed of any more changes as a result.

    Hello I just wanted to notice that now this game is unplayable for survivor. Its to easy for hunters. You have to make some balance. The hunters that I could easly beat so far, now are unreachable. I spent more than 1000h online in this game and now its frustrating.
