This time I am not going to enable extra mods so hopefully game will run smoother with the default settings.

Ubuntu – How low can you go?


I’m glad I gave up on Ubuntu back in 2011 when they started removing popular programs (pidgin, gimp) to promote their own, then they started the unity crap…

Well now they are announcing they will make it so that giving your search data to Amazon is “opt-in”… how about you shouldn’t have been doing that to begin with?

7DtD Map Master Plan


Here is the master plan:

  • The main towns (areas marked in red) will get regen every “7 Days” on “Fun Pimps Fridays”
  • The areas marked in green I will try to keep safe for long term unless there is a patch that changes map features or adds prefabs so build there if you plan a long term base
  • Other areas will be reset as necessary
  • Area -3,2: Trespassers will be shot on sight; survivors will be shot again
