A17 Early Streaming Release Notes
There’s a lot of changes so you may want to see what to expect when it does roll out.
Blue Fang Solutions, who is our hosting provider for all our servers, is taking down our servers’ in the Dallas facility on the 1st of July, which could take up to 24 hours because it is a physical move. This impacts all our servers. So be expecting that, here’s the info:
Notice of Service Impact
Start Date/Time: 1 July 18 / 0900 CDT
End Date/Time: 3 July 18 / 0900 CDT
Window Length: 48.0 Hour(s)
Expected Outage Length: 18-24 Hours
Affected Services: All Dallas Located Services
Scheduled Facility Migration – Dallas, TX
We will be performing a migration of all hardware, core infrastructure, and network equipment to a new Internap facility in Dallas, TX.
Due to the immense growth in this location, the current facility can no longer provide the level of service and expansion footprint to support our growing demands. Our team has diligently planned for this migration to minimize impact on services, however there will be an extended outage faced by all services on site as a physical move of ALL equipment is required.
Patch 16.3 has been released for 7DtD. With that said the devs recommended a world wipe, so that has been done. Like before your backpack and skills have been retained. Your zGates have been refunded and to get a started LCB type /givemelcb (or /gimmelcb on Ztopia) – for the first few weeks.
Ztopia had the same issue as prior, I asked that it be moved to another server, which happened, however the existing issue did not clear up resulting in a randomly freezing game and the world not drawing. Had to wipe it to make it playable, and like before all your skills and your items that were in your backpack were retained. To get your free LCB type /givemelcb
Ztopia was wiped due to a re-occurring Unity error that was causing the game to slowly break. Your backpacks, xp and skills were retained. If you had any zgates, those were refunded back to your wallet.
If you are having an issue where you cannot connect to the server, this is a known bug and you must create a new profile, connect to the server, disconnect and switch back to your old character and then you can connect normally (what a pain I know!).

City rules are still enforced, keep over 200 blocks out, if you are unsure of your distance, please ask an admin for assistance.
