  1. Yes that would be a good move. My version only collides with melee, zombies completely ignore them and bullets and rockets pass through them. I set stability support off so nothing can be placed on them and they support no weight (well these have cloth material so only a light amount). But the trick is they ignore gravity so they float, which makes it possible to stack them and build with them. I intend to put some decay timer on them so they vanish after a day or so when not upgraded. My idea was to make paper be needed to craft them, gives it a nice use and fits with blueprinting.
  2. Thanks, and yeah it would probably fit easily with the plan for blueprint POIs. Placing and rebuilding a POI (with quest reset) is also already available tech of the game, probably just takes some developer time to tie it all together. As long as the idea remains in the pipe it is good
  3. Cool, not sure what is holding you guys back, the tech is already in the game. Just made this today:
  4. Nice, that is really cool, great work now I am really stoked for A18 as well. Some Suggestions: - How about adding a 30 (or less) second times to a placed block when placed that allows pickup in it. So misplaced blocks can be recovered if you are fast enough. - How about using this system to pick rotations as well, maybe not A18 but picking rotations from as list of icons could be easier than cycling through them. The UI code is there so it could be easy to convert. - Will you apply this to the Letter blocks as well, since there are a bunch of them (all numbers and alphabet) it might save some more recipe space, but you may have already thought of this.

    Gnamod UI

    Ok, seems that window also does not play well with the new layout. Will have to fix it, thanks for letting me know.

    Thanks buddy, appreciated Thank you for the kind words
  7. Nice to hear the shape menu made it in for A18, one feature I have long waited for. Curious to how it works under the hood though, does a shape still need to exist as an xml block entry to be selectable, or has it access to a list of possible shapes?

    GNAMOD HORDE MODE ====== Overview ====== Gnamod Horde Mode is the full on Arcade version of Gnamod where it all resolves around tower defense. In this mode you will spawn near a machine called 'Beacon' that is your only route of escape, or so your poor character thinks. It sends out smoke signals and acts as a radio beacon for airplanes to drop supplies. It also attracts zombies, they just cannot resist punching it. Sadly for you the machine has an unstable nuclear core and to much zombie punches will make it explode and likely take you and your base with it. As of the release of Gnamod 0.8.0 Horde Mode is back and available for A18.4. Sure it is a bit late as A19 is close but this will be the plan is that the release of 0.8.1 will be for A19 and include all features now present in the mod, including Horde Mode. The beacon comes with supply caches where you can exchange currency into supplies and equipment. The secret stash contains supplies that are changed daily. Increase your skill in bartering and intelligence to access the better stock and better prices. Be aware for the first horde that arrives around 2 PM (12 AM on servers). Surround your Beacon with walls, traps and mines and make sure to equip yourself with the best your money can buy. Zombies will drop bags that contain more currency, so keep killing for more supplies. Horde Mode currently comes with three maps (Easy, Normal, Tough). The Tough map features the Boss Mode POI made by Like A Boss during alpha 17 with some alterations to make if fit with the rest. This POI features sleepers so you will need to fight off enemies right away. ====== Features ====== - Arcade Mode with Beacon to defend. - Buy supplies from vendors in the Beacon. Store your stuff in the drawers of the Beacon. - Zombies drop money instead of loot. - Zombies can see further out and through walls, you cannot hide from the zombies. - Progressively harder for each day passed as well as gamestaged. ====== Notes & Tips ====== - There are supplies to be found in both the standard tabs as well as the secret stash. Check each of the vendors (3 on each side with their own customized stock). To progress in Horde Mode you will eventually need to invest in Better Barter to unlock better stashes that contain the best materials. - Horde Mode is resource intensive despite my best efforts. If you run into performance issues you may want to consider reducing settings even if the vanilla game runs fine. - The command ' gfx pp enable 0 ' will turn off all post processing and can help reduce the load. The mem or memcl (for clients) can free up some memory by calling the garbage collector. - You can set Bloodmoon hordes to daily for a different kind of experience.

    Gnamod

    GNAMOD CORE The Core mod is designed in such a way that when possible it adds new content into the game rather than replacing existing content. This way it is less dependent on changes made during the alpha development of the game and whims of its developers. The Core mostly relies on XML alterations and the addition of content through a single Unity package. In the future the Core may also include code scripts when this becomes supported by the game or some feature can no longer be added without it. The Core also functions as a standalone mod, only requiring Gnamod CoreUI to function that is developed in conjunction with it. It strives to stay as close to the vanilla experience of the game. This means it will have all elements of it: Looting, Building, Zombie Hordes, Survival, Exploration and Mining. The goal is to create an as realistic as possible survival experience while also challenging players with zombies and deadly wildlife. Another goal is to expand upon the existing game including: Adding more items, blocks, zombie and animal appearances, trees, world props, plants, block shapes, traps and weapons. -=+=-=+=-=+=-=+=FEATURES=+=-=+=-=+=-=+=- => Zombie and Animal Skins: For many Zombies and Animals new skins are added into the mix, this includes work done by Mumpfy. This is an ongoing process where new skins are added when available. The system is designed in such a way new skins can be added easily in ongoing development. => Zombie and Animal Randomization: Zombies and Animals in Gnamod have their stats randomized, this includes HP, Speed, Damage, Size, Walktype and Appearance. This makes zombies challenging and interesting as you never really known beforehand what you are dealing with. => Zombie Groups and Classes: The following groups exist: World, Sleeper, Horde, Bloodmoon, Radiated and Radsleeper. Groups are super types that dictate the zombie’s final power and where they will be encountered. Then there are zombie classes, which dictate their behavior and some of their distinct behavior. The following classes exist: Dasher, Mook, Grunt, Average, Strong, Climber, Puker, Feral, Boss, Volatile and Bomber. => Animal Behavior Templates: There are templates that animals can extend from giving them a certain behavior. Currently there is Timid, Weary, Neutral, Dangerous, Hostile and Undead. Timid animals will never fight, Weary animals have heightened senses and will not fight unless cornered, Neutral animals will mostly move away if you get close but engage when they are threatened, Dangerous animals have lowered senses but will always engage when something gets in their sights, Hostile animals have heightened senses and actively engage. Undead animals are considered zombies and will only attack the player or other non-zombie animals, they will never give up pursuit. => Overhauled Spawning: Gamestaging, Biome Spawns, Wandering Hordes, Sleepers and Bloodmoons have all been redone for Gnamod. You will find more zombies during the day and a lot more during the nights. Each biome has its spawning tailored to it. Wandering Hordes are staged, which means they come in waves and not all at once, waves can include animals so you may see wolves being chased by zombies etc. Bloodmoons have more interesting waves and animal waves in between to spice things up. Early gamestages the hordes are relatively small, but they will pick up when your gamestage rises. => Resource Overhaul: Gnamod completely overhauls the raw and manufactured resource system and only keeps a small fraction of the actual vanilla items in place. Some items are just Gnamod copies of the items while most are actual new items added to the game. Gnamod distinguishes resource categories: Mineral (Ores, Soil and Stone), Harvest (Items that you mainly harvest from animals or the world), Junk (Items you loot and have no use other than selling or scrapping), Resource (Items you loot, manufacture or harvest from human made items such as cars), Material (Items used for construction) and Component (Items that are part of weapon or ammo recipes). Gnamod adds well over 130+ items, some which replace a vanilla counterpart, but most are new. Gnamod adds (new) ores such as Copper, Zinc, Lead, Iron, Silver, Gold, Coal, Niter and Shale. Some are not yet available to mine, but others will spawn underground in special nodes you will have to find the old-fashioned way. => Workstation Overhaul: Workstations have had changes, most notably the Forge is no longer being used as is and replaced by the Smelter. The Smelter does not melt materials in it, but instead works like other workstations with recipes turning materials in your inventory into other items. All metals can be turned into a Forged (Ingot) variant which can then be further processed at the Smelter into other items. Each workstation has a basic variation and a more advanced variation that can also handle the basic work. Nearly everything can be a tool for these workstations and thus its vital to check for tool requirements along with other requirements before crafting. In the future this system will be expanded upon to add a lot more specialty tools to craft certain more advanced items. => Blueprints: Gnamod does away with Frames, instead there are Blueprint blocks in nearly 100 shapes available for 11 different materials. Blueprints appear as blue translucent blocks, support no weight and can be walked through. They are upgraded by using the right tool and material. Materials have different properties and the shape will determine the final strength and support glue of a block. Stone materials have more HP but a lower hardness and explosion resistance than the metal blocks which have 2 stages of upgrade while stone walls need to dry. The following materials exist (in order of strength): Scrapwood, Platedwood, Flagstone, Scrapmetal, Brick, Iron, Granite, Steel, Concrete, Stainless and Hardcrete. => New Paintable Shapes: In addition to Blueprints Gnamod also has additional paintable shapes that do not exist in vanilla. Most prominent is a set of Pallisade blocks that can be crafted early game to build fortifications with. There is also the Porcupine trap shape that acts like the Log spikes from A16 but with more nasty spikes. More (currently missing) shapes will be added in the future. => No Magic Upgrades: Most upgrades and repairing have been removed from POI blocks (vanilla blocks not craftable by the player in Gnamod). This means POIs are mostly just a temporary base until you have enough material to build your own structure. Certain repairs or upgrades will be added in future versions so some POIs can be upgraded to a base. => Overhauled Vanilla Biomes: All existing biomes have been redone in a more Gnamod style. Since A18 custom biomes cannot be done properly with XML only because of the Microsplat feature. So instead the 5 still existing biomes have been restyled to fit the Gnamod world. The forest is now home to the Gnamod Connifer forest, the burnt biome houses the Gnamod Fields biome, the desert, snow and wasteland have been redone in Gnamod style as well. Biomes appear in rings on the world with the Wasteland in the center, Snow around it followed by the Forest, Fields and then Desert. => Unlocked Map Sizes: The RWG advanced generation allows to generate maps from 1k to 16k in increments of 512. Maps smaller than 2k are not recommended and odd sizes may yield weird worlds for as long as Gnamod still uses the vanilla stamp method for generation. => Looting Overhaul: Looting has completely been overhauled bring back the system of how loot worked in A16. This means that loot quality only slightly scales with the Gamestage while loot quantity goes up as Gamestage rises. This mostly is due to decreases in probability to find nothing or default loot (usually trash) in most containers. So overall while Gamestage rises so does the chance to find something or more items in containers go up. This is greatly dependant on the type of container, special loot ones will mostly remain similar over the course of a game while the more common containers will see more noticeable increases. => More Lootable Stuff: A lot of stuff that is not lootable in the vanilla game has been made lootable in Gnamod. This includes opened containers as well as certain items that looked lootable but where not. => Trader Inventory Changes: The trader inventories have changed so they can sell Gnamod items. They refresh loot daily. The player vending machines also sell some stuff daily so check those out as well. => Dyes: Gnamod comes with 5000 new dyes to find and use. These dyes cover the whole spectrum of colors so it will be hard to find two copies of the same color. => Trader Overhaul: Traders and their stocks have been overhauled. Each trader has specialized stock now. Their compounds have been overhauled and no longer are immune to damage. => Economics Overhaul: The game’s entire economics has been overhauled, prices are based on their components to craft and value in the game. Previously existing exploits have been cleared away. => Updated Quests: Quest rewards have been altered to fit the Gnamod style and there are generally more choices available from the start, but you get less money for each completed quest. Reward choices offer cash sometimes and higher tier quests offer more choice variety. => Early Game: Rebalanced the early game for looting. First 5 gamestages have access to a special starter lootgroup that offers basic stuff needed to get started. This is my way of handing out some basics while keeping it random. => Perks: Lucky Looter no longer offers a flat bonus to loot gamestage, it can only increase as much as the player’s current level. Added a new perk: Bring it On, which increases all gamestage to increase challenge but also increased looting. => Multi-Use Items: Gnamod now has items with multiple uses, currently available as Rations and First Aid Kits. These work from the toolbar only but can be used until their durability runs out. The higher the quality the more uses they have.

    GNAMOD DOWNLOAD HERE Join Gnamod's Discord 1. Basics 1.1 Introduction Gnamod has been developed since A14 by Haidr’Gna, hereafter referred to as mod-author. It all began as a set of tweaks for personal use and grew bigger during A15 into a full overhaul. The name is derived from the mod-author’s nickname and has no special meaning and is not an acronym for anything either. Gnamod grew from just one overhaul into a group of mods that all share the same base of alterations to the game. This mod is now referred to as Gnamod Core and is the foundation for nearly all Gnamod versions since A17. The only exception is UI, which is known as Gnamod CoreUI and forms the foundation for all UI modifications for Gnamod but is also available as a stand-alone release. Gnamod is aimed at any player that finds the vanilla game lacking and is seeking more of a challenge in all aspects of the game. It brings back the survival aspect and offers a slower pacing than the vanilla game. The aim is a challenging but also fair gameplay experience where you will have to fight and be smart to earn your place in the world. The zombies are far more relentless, looting a lot more challenging and the world is more interesting. Gnamod is a complete overhaul of the game, which means every aspect of it is altered in some way or will be in future versions of the mod. Gnamod is also continually being worked on and new content is being added. Since A17 introduced xpath there no longer is a need to redo work when a new alpha is released. This means Gnamod will continue to grow along with the game. DOWNLOAD HERE 1.2. Manual Installation A. Navigate to the game's base folder: (~\Steam\steamapps\common\7 Days to Die). B. Extract the contents of the zip file(s) directly into the game’s base folder. C. Make sure the entire contents of each zip you install goes into the base folder. D. Start the game, if you done it correctly a you will see the Gnamod logo in the main menu. 1.3. ModLauncher Installation. A. Download the ModLauncher from sphereii at: https://7daystodie.com/forums/showth...-7-Days-to-Die B. Install the ModLauncher following the instructions. C. Find the tab for Gnamod, open it, select a version and use Install Game Copy. D. Use Pre-Sync to download the mod and then Play Mod to start. 2. License and Use 2.1 Terms of Use This section applies to all mods released by the mod-author under the name of Gnamod. Any such mod will always start its name with Gnamod, such as Gnamod Core, Gnamod Horde Mode etc. Assets found in the Gnamod.unity3d contain the work of The Fun Pimps, myself, work from other authors listed under Included Work and used Unity packages, therefore it is NOT allowed to re-use this in any way without permission from the mod-author and/or the original author(s) of the content. Gnamod is free to play by whoever owns 7 Days to Die. This includes running it on a private or rented server and hosting a game for friends. Users of Gnamod are also free to tailor their experience to their needs by altering the XML files. When hosting a server or game with such altered contents, it is required to notify users that an altered version of Gnamod is being used. Users are free to borrow ideas that are unique to Gnamod in their own locally used mods or hosted games for friends. When using ideas unique to Gnamod in a mod that will be released to the public you are required to ask for permission from the mod-author. It is good practice to credit the mod-author and reference Gnamod in the mod’s documentation and advertisement in this case. Users are NOT allowed to take the code from this mod to add to another mod in any way without asking the mod-author explicit permission for it. This applies for taking (parts of) the code, XML or assets as well as altered versions of these. Gnamod is intended to use as is and not to be broken down or redistributed in altered form. This includes adding any part of Gnamod into any kind of overhaul mod or mod collection pack. Due to the nature of Gnamod, the Core mod will likely not be compatible with any kind of modlet and the CoreUI mod will likely not be compatible with any modlet that alters the UI in any way. It is up to modlet authors to facilitate compatibility with Gnamod if they so incline. Bugs and issues that occur because of the use of other mods will not be resolved by the mod-author. It is of course allowed to design modlets that enhance Gnamod. Such modlets should be named in such a way they always load after the Gnamod Core mod. The Fun Pimps are ultimately the true owners of this mod as it only works with their game and is only possible because they support the modding community of their game. 3. Mod Overview 3.1. Mod Structure Gnamod is build around two Core mods, Gnamod Core and Gnamod CoreUI. Core is the main mod that houses nearly all changes required to overhaul the vanilla game. CoreUI is the same for all the UI changes required for Gnamod. By this design the other versions are just modlets designed to specifically alter or activate certain stuff within Gnamod and thus are dependent on the Core mod to function.

    Gnamod UI

    Release 0.4.1 I just released a version 0.4.1 on the Mod Launcher and to the download, moved the old version to History. - Fixed: Quest reward window was showing up behind the player inventory window and lacked a header. Now has a proper header, and windows are in line with the rest of the UI style. Added 2 extra potential reward slots (not activated unless max rewards from perk is increased). - Fixed: Logo doubling in certain resolutions. - Changed: UI Logo now has a 3d effect on the letters UI so it looks better in the menu.

    Hmm I did not touch that window and thus there could be an issue, I will investigate and see if I can fix it. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Gnamod UI

    This is on purpose, the toolbar on the side of the screen is only there to display what you have equipped, The top row of the inventory are the slots of the toolbar. This might take a bit to adjust to, but it actually is faster since it is closer to your inventory, well unless you fill out the bottom rows only, but that would be deliberately making it harder on yourself. But I will see if an indicator for the toolbar will be good, I like the clean look of the hotbar slots being part of your inventory. I do not view the inventory as a backpack, but rather as a collection of all the pockets and packs your character has on his person, so including the belt and what not.

    I have redone the logo's of my mod series to replace the placeholder logo that was mostly text based. This is the new logo for the UI, will show up in the game menu, ingame menu on top and in the top right corner.
  18. As I see it there are some different kind of modes that could exist, Dead is Dead being one of them. Normal: You die, respawn on your bed or near you bed and play on (current mode) Hard Mode: In this mode you can only 'almost die' so many times before your character is reset to level 1, essentially being Dead is Dead light or for servers. 'Near death's' could be earned or at least recovered to a certain maximum, set at start of the game. This is the more arcade version but a good midway to the more hardcore Dead is Dead and Realism modes (see next). Dead is Dead: You die, your character data is removed and reset to level 1. You continue playing on that savegame, but are spawed somewhere far away from your base and place you died. Realism: You die, game over, no option to respawn, no reset, you just only can exit the game. Your savegame will stay, but cannot be loaded anymore (more like a trophy to show how far you got). This mode will not work in mp games but would be the true Dead is Dead or Hardcore experience where you just have 1 life and have to begin again from scratch in a new world.

    Thanks for the support guys, very much appreciated
  20. These are good suggestions, I think most of these could be easily added in with mods and thus also by the Fun Pimps if they wanted to. But probably all of them will go to far for them for sure, still I hope the base game will get some of this, especially more environmental ones. Just getting overheat and then getting a drink to fix will not do, if you keep out in the sun you should feel it, but also should be able to take measures.

    Thanks Necropolis is in a very early prototype stage still, judging by how far A18 is along the dev track I forsee it sadly not making it to A17. Mostly because a lot of stuff I intend to overhaul that is being redone in A18 it is clearly a waste of time to do it now. But it will surely make a return. The one that might be hardest to bring back is Nomad Mode though, the maps currently supported are just to small and not interesting like A16 maps were for that concept.
