  1. In the past I've made comments about how I've saved nearly every version that has been on Steam. Many have expressed an interest in also being able to build such a collection but since those versions were in the past it was believed to not be possible. Recently I was shown this thread (related to another game): Some additional information on the Steam Console can be found at (including downloading apps/games and DLC): Steam Community Guide on Steam Console The summary of that thread is that as long as you own a game and the game's depots are all still available, it is possible to find the correct information and download any version of the game you want that has been released on Steam. So I've taken that information and compiled a list of the details necessary to download almost every past version of 7 Days To Die released to Steam. I've done this only for public branch releases (not experimental versions). Data Sources Used: https://steamdb.info/app/251570/depots/ https://steamdb.info/app/251570/history/ I did NOT use the manifests page under the depots pages and instead used the history as it was more accurate & had a longer retention (although what a pain loading & scrolling, the page was 8MB fully loaded). Depot ID Values Available? Description 251571 YES Windows 32 Bit (NOTE: this includes both 32bit & 64bit, just determines starting install mode) 251573 NO ??? History says this was: Mac (NOTE: attempts to download from this depot respond 'missing license' due to the depot having been disabled. As such MAC Alpha 5 to Alpha 6.4 cannot be downloaded) 251574 NO ??? History says this was: Windows (NOTE: attempts to download from this depot respond 'missing license' due to the depot having been disabled. As such Windows Alpha 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4 cannot be downloaded) 251575 NO ??? History says this was: Mac (NOTE: (NOTE: attempts to download from this depot respond 'missing license' due to the depot having been disabled. As such MAC Alpha 5 to Alpha 6.4 cannot be downloaded) 251576 YES Windows 64 Bit (NOTE: this includes both 32bit & 64bit, just determines starting install mode) 251577 YES Mac 251578 YES Linux Universal Here are Release dates, version info (can be matched to the Version History/Release Notes thread), and then the manifests that were available for that version. To download a particular version all that is necessary is the DepotID (beginning of the line) and the ManifestID (19 digit value at the end of the line). Example to download Linux Alpha 8.7 from 2014-07-09 - the DepotID would be 251578 and the ManifestID would be 7891736396000419297 The formatted command would be: download_depot 251570 251578 7891736396000419297 Since I was missing the original Windows Alpha 5 release from December 13, 2013 I decided to test using that version. So I open the Steam Console in the Steam Client: steam://nav/console Linked: steam://nav/console Then I paste in the line: download_depot 251570 251571 8674858241122065491 The Steam client will show no progress, but if you check your downloads tab you will see the network activity. Once the download completes you'll see a line like below telling you where it placed the files. Depot download complete : "G:\Games (Steam)\steamapps\content\app_251570\depot_251571" (339 files, manifest 8674858241122065491) After which I renamed the folder 'depot_251571' to 'Alpha 5.0' and moved it to be with the rest of my collection, cleared all registry and save entries, then ran the app from the folder to test. Working Alpha 5.0, delivered from Steam in 2019. That is it.
