Make sure to check the game on the Microsoft store app prior to community night to see if there is an update that needs to be downloaded/installed by the store app!  Also, if you buy the game through the Microsoft store on either the PC or Xbox, you can install and play it on both the PC and Xbox One simultaneously. You can try it for a month for $1. See below.

7 Days to Die is a zombie apocalypse survival game with some crafting/building, similar to The Forest. We have a server running for it that will switch save games between community nights and the times in between to keep the community night save game from progressing further without those who are more likely to play only on those nights while still allowing others to play outside of community nights with full progression for that save game.  As long as you play outside of 7 PM Sunday to 2 AM Monday, you will not disturb the community night save game.  The name of our server is [OSF] Died in the Dell and can be found by searching the in-game server browser for [OSF]. Do not use the external STEAM server browser to join the server as it does not work properly.

 

You can buy 7 Days to Die for $25 and find more information about it here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die/

 

Although there is in-game voice communication, we will also meet in the Discord Lobby this time to determine which is better to use for this game.

7 Days to Die server is up for testing, still on sale for $6
Posted on Wednesday January 04, 2023

What will be our official 7 Days to Die server is currently up for testing at [OSF] Die in the Dell. You will have to use the in-game server browser to search for it (use [OSF]) and join it. You should not join from the external STEAM server browser as it does not work properly. The password is and always will be foliage. We are starting at 20 players. If that works fine and we are bumping against that limit at times, we will try to increase the maxplayers. The server is up until Sunday for testing purposes. On Sunday night, we will delete the save game file and restart the server from time 0 of day 1 around 8:30-9:00 PM Eastern for our community night. From there on out, we will continue that save game on community nights only to give everyone a chance to keep up with it who can play on community nights. However, we are also planning to have the server running at other times with an alternate save game that will be maintained perpetually for anyone who wants to play outside of community nights.

 

If you still do not own the game, it is currently on sale on STEAM for $6 until Friday morning.

Sea of Thieves is having a Gold & Glory weekend starting the tomorrow morning (Friday December 23) and ending the morning of Monday December 26. Because Christmas is on Sunday, we are not having an organized community night that night to take advantage of this. Instead, we are going to use Friday night, which is often an impromptu night for this game, to have a community night for Gold & Glory. Gold and Reputation should be doubled on top of the emissary value which is up to 5x. Because we can make that even more lucrative by turning in loot between 9-10 PM with gold rush hour, we are going to start matching early at 8 PM. The game is on sale for $20 currently for anyone who still does not have it.

 

Make sure to check the game on the Microsoft store app prior to community night to see if there is an update that needs to be downloaded/installed by the store app!  Also, if you buy the game through the Microsoft store on either the PC or Xbox, you can install and play it on both the PC and Xbox One simultaneously.
