7_Days_to_Die_668x227
Hey Survivalist, looks like the fun pimps are still busting their humps even during the holiday season. Alpha 10.3 patch is out with plenty of newly added content, fixes, and changes. A couple of the highlights for this patch are, more work done to the character customization and new buildings. With character customization you can now alter your hair styles as well as its color. There are only 5 different styles at the moment but again with time there will be more. There are also over 30 different clothing variants to help each player stand out while playing with friends.

This latest build also includes several new custom buildings such as a pharmacy, book store, and hardware store. Now with these new buildings it acomidates the gun store added earlier in patch 10. Here are a couple screen shots unfortunatly I was not able to locate a pharmacy just yet.

Book Store: 2014-12-14_00007

Hardware Store:2014-12-14_00009

Gun Store: 2014-12-14_00008
As always here is the complete list of the patch notes.

Once you place the frame you take cobblestones (made from cement and small rocks) and you right click the frame to upgrade it to a ¼ high cobblestone wall. Repeat several times to complete the wall. The cobblestone frames have very little structural integrity so you might need to support your cobblestone outward structures until they are completed with another supporting block.
