  1. @khzmusik awesome i try that flame fix on my enzombies when i get the chance. but yea, the electric shock one is strange. they pass right through the electric wires... BUT occasionally the will get shocked if they are knocked down while touching the wires. i don't expect the issue can easily be fixed. it's not a super bid deal for me though. cheers.
  2. below are two things i discovered while creating UMA zombies for my enZombies mod. it's listed in my "known issues" section of my enZombies mod page, and I believe this would apply to your UMA archetype zombies: - UMA zombies don't catch fire from torch attacks. However, they do burn and suffer damage from molotov cocktails, flaming arrows/bolts. The flame effects just don't visually show on their bodies. - UMA zombies don't get shocked when walking into electric fence traps. However, they occasionally get shocked while knocked down on the fence. Stun batons shock the zombies just fine though.
  3. Here's a sneak peak of what I've been working on: in following with the goals of apha 20, in which the wasteland biome should be tougher, i'm adding a couple more stronger zombies to that biome. i also felt like this biome should have more military presence, so i created 3 variations of swat zombies. they all hold stun batons and are stronger than normal soldiers. i've also created a stealth-like zombie that's masked and hooded like a ninja. 😁 they are quiet, fast, and dual-wield knives. they will only spawn during the nights in the wasteland. i've also created a new 'body harvest' addon that allows harvesting of all zombies - vanillas, enzombies, KHz zombies, and snufkin zombies. the resources obtained are customized based on what clothing, armor, and/or weapons they have on them. i'm debating on weather or not i should release what i've completed now, or keep adding more zombies and features and release this mod update after alpha 20 is out. what do you guys think?
  4. Hi @AndrewT - those would make nice additions to the enZombies. but since I'm using the UMA method, i'm limited to shirts, pants, hats, gloves, shoes, jackets, glasses, etc that are already in the game. so the politicians would simply use the existing suit jacket, shirt and tie, and pants already in the game - they'll just look like the existing enZombie businessmen. grocery store zombies will use existing shirts and pants. maybe they will have the farmer overalls? i think you get the idea. if you're thinking more like creating completely new zombie models and new clothing textures, then that's outside the ability of this mod and my skills unfortunately. there are a number of other modders who are 3D artists who've created great mods with custom zombie models. 😉
  5. Hello all. I've been distracted lately just playing 7 days while anticipating the alpha 20 release. Partly playing vanilla single player on insane difficulty for kicks, and partly playing with enZombies for quality control. I'll have an update for the enZombies mod by the next week or two. 😎
  6. thanks for the additional details. unfortunately i'm unable to check out the errors or look for anything since i don't get the errors myself, so i have nothing to refer to. if you can copy/paste the errors here, or post a screenshot of it, i can start with that.
  7. hi @AndrewT, i don't remember you mentioning this problem before.. or that i had responded to your past mention of it? any problems with the snufkin zombies addon can get fixed soon, so long as i'm aware of the issue. please provide more details on top of the 'null errors every 2 seconds' and i can certainly look into it further. screenshots? error logs? occurs right at boot up? occurs only in certain situations? etc...
  8. Hi InsKill - what version of 7 Days are you running? and which enZombies mod version are you using? and also, are you playing on a server? have you also tried starting a new map and a new game, and only and the newest enZombies version installed? let me know thanks.
  9. Hello everyone, I just want to make small flat map that has no decorations. Just flat dirt. I experimented with the in-game world editor staring with pine forest map, but not having much luck with removing all the decorations all at once. also tried messing with modding the biomes.xml file. i zero out all the decoration probabilities, but for some reason some grass and trees still remain. any ideas? biomes.xml <set xpath="/worldgeneration/biomes/biome/subbiome/decorations/decoration[contains(@blockname,'tree')]/@prob">0</set> <set xpath="/worldgeneration/biomes/biome/subbiome/decorations/decoration[contains(@blockname,'plant')]/@prob">0</set> <set xpath="/worldgeneration/biomes/biome/subbiome/decorations/decoration[contains(@blockname,'cnt')]/@prob">0</set>
  10. @dujinyuan i'll add both of these to my TODO list. These are fantastic zombie models too, I've used them in the past on my server with family and friends.
  11. @MatisJaximus Ouch haha. sounds like you had to re-evaluate some life choices on that last run. what was that creature that followed you up the stairs to your doom?? were you also using the snufkin zombies addon? those zobmbies are tough ones. regarding the spawn numbers, i tend to prefer whole number values when doing the spawn probabilities - though of course your values are just as valid. If you're curious about the entry for the invisibleAnimalEnemy spawn, apparently the game spawns too many animals by default and you have to add that line in order to dilute the spawn chance of real animals from spawning. if you find that too many animals within a certain entitygroup are spawning, then increase the prob value for invisibleAnimalEnemy. if just a specific animal within a group is spawning too much, you can of course just lower that animal's prob number. During my own personal tests, i have not had an overabundance of baddy animals like wolves and bears, but weird things can happen. Feel free to tweak those prob values and i'd be curious to see which works best for you.
  12. Hi @MatisJaximus that's exactly how i would have calculated it and have understood it.
  13. all other zombie mods will likely have problems working with enZombies unless you make some adjustments to the XML files. it's because i made a lot of changes to the same files that the other zombie mods like Creaturepack use. if you reeaally reaaally want.. i can make a new addon for enZombies mod that will add Creaturepack zombies to spawn too. but just to be sure, @xyth let me know if this is OK with you. i won't be making any changes to the creaturepack zombies themselves, it will just be the spawning behavior so that it will cooperate with enZombie existing spawning code. you will be credited on the addon mod as well as everywhere else. What do you think? 😎 lastly, there are many Creaturepacks. which one's did you want to use with enZombies? or all of them? it will prob take a few days for me to review one on and incorporate into and addon. if you have a certain priority, let me know. 0-CreaturePackAnimals - Things like animals, birds, insects etc. 0-CreaturePackHumans - Various bandits, traders, and survivors and other humanoid rigged entities 0-CreaturePackMechs - Robots, drones and other mechanical things like SphereBot, the avatar of my modding partner SphereII 0-CreaturePackZombies - Zombies, you know, dead things that used to be human. Humanoid rigged. 0-CreaturePackFantasy - Everything else that doesn't fit in the 4 other categories. Swarms, Orcs, Pokemon etc.
  14. i'll definitely explore that idea. i'm sure there are a number of existing items that can make sense to attach to animals - like a few of the weapon meshes (spears, clubs, etc) and other meshes like jars, torches, item bags, etc. I've also seen in other mods where the texture of the vanilla zombies and animals are replaced with other in-game textures, like wood or metallic textures. for example the vanilla wolf has a water/liquid texture or flame texture. it looked pretty awesome. i'd like to use some of those ideas too for more zombie and animal variations @TomGun42 was that a mod you created yourself for your server? those new textured zombies were nice.
  15. hi @AndrewT like what kind of symbols? like they wear some kind of object? or, tattoo or different color fur? keep in mind i can only use what objects and textures that already exist in the vanilla game. if you are thinking of creating a brand new object or symbo to put in the game, that is outside my purpose of this mod - because it will require players on a server to download files.
  16. hi @Nagano - yes this is a behavior i noticed too. these UMA type zombies don't get shocked initially, but i've found that oftentimes if they are knocked down while touching the wires, then they will get shocked. the stun batons electrify them just fine though. much strangeness. i'm still experimenting with this to see if it's just some XML parameter i need to modify in the Buffs, Blocks, or Entityclass files to mimic the vanilla zombie characteristics. but it in the end, it might be a limitation of UMA zombies. hopefully there is a solution. 😓
  17. Hi @ZombieMax mods that add a bigger backpack or change loot and add items should not cause any problems with the enZombies mod. if you are getting the red errors called NullReferenceException, then there are a couple POIs that could cause that. Can you let me know which POIs gave you the red errors? Hi @dujinyuan the flying drones (HellFlyer and HellShocker) are part of the Snufkin Zombies addon mod. You probably have not encountered many of the other Snufkin zombies yet because most are even stronger than the Hell Flyers LOL. All of the zombies from that addon are fairly strong actually and I tried to set the spawn probability fairly low. Here is how you can stop the HellFlyer from appearing: - exit from the 7 Days game if it's running - find the file called entitygroups.xml - this file is located in the Mods folder, inside enZombiesAddonSnufin folder, and inside Config folder - using a text editor, open up this file so you can view the contents of the XML code - scroll to the very bottom of that file - you will see the very last line says </configs> - go to a blank line above that </config> line - copy and paste the code below into the blank line - then save the file and start up your game. <set xpath="/entitygroups/entitygroup/entity[@name='HellFlyer']/@prob">0</set> In the code above, you can see the number zero. This will prevent the HellFlyer from spawning. If you want to prevent any other Snufkin zombies from spawning, you can just make an exact copy of that code and add it below that current line. Then, replace 'HellFlyer' with a different Snufkin enemy that you want to remove. Below are all the different Snufkin zombie names that you can use in the above code: zombieScorcher zombieBanshee zombieMantis zombieGeist zombieScarecrow zombiePsycho zombieSiren ZombieUndertaker ZombieBomber ZombieJuggernaut zombieCowhead zombieParasite zombieWendigo zombieWrestler ZombieArchon zombieMotorhead Paindeer Mittens HellLion HellBear HellWolf HellBoar HellFlyer HellShocker SharkWFLB ZombieJuggernautGolden zombieGeistArcher zombieHisser zombieTipsySquatch zombieDirewolf zombieTipsyPinkSquatch zombiePsycho ZombieArchon
  18. hi @ZombieMax those warning messages are OK to ignore and will not cause problems to enZombies mod. But, it's interesting that you are getting such warnings in the first place. the warnings mean that my mod cannot find the biome names like "pine_forest", "desert", "snow", etc in the XML code so that it can delete them. but, since they are already deleted, my mod is happy anyway. those biome names are part of the vanilla code so i'm surprised they are not there. do you have any other mods installed along with enZombies?
  19. HOTFIX for the Snufkin Zombies Addon. Please disregard v1.1 and be sure to download v1.1b instead. Click here to download v1.1b (google drive link) I forgot to add the Snufkin Raid quest into the loot table when uploading v1.1. It's now fixed in v1.1b. 😎
  20. That would be an awesome mechanic. Kind of like shooting off limbs, but this time shooting off bits of armor or weapons. Currently by using the UMA models, we can attach certain prefabs and blocks onto the zombies, but those attached objects can only act as dummy visuals. For example, the knives and clubs that you see attached to my Punk zombies. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a way to really hook any code or functionality to those objects in order to have them react to any sort of physical stimuli ... like bullets or attacks. so any 'disarming' mechanic is not possible via UMA technique. The devs can add this feature the proper way from their end with the new added meshes, animations, and particles, but you might have to stand in line behind all the other feature request that others have posed throughout the years. 😉
  21. Version 1.9 Released! (Updated download link on original post) - added all KHzMuzik UMA zomies into enZombies. spawns only in wandering horde for now. Thanks @khzmusik for your permission. 😎 - added 4 male and 4 female weapon-wielding punk zombies (spawns only in wandering horde for now) - created Snufkin 'mad scientist' boss. spawns only in challenge quest when using Snufkin Zombies addon.

Enjoy!
  22. i see yea. in my goblin raid quests, i use wolves, direwolves and coyotes that fight alongside the goblins. in version 1.7, i made special versions of the wolf, direwolf, and coyote specifically for the goblin raid quests - so that they do not run away when injured and do not attack the other goblins. this certainly does sounds like a big boss level battle.. and would certainly make a nice challenge for a single player raid. aside from making these challenges unsharable, which i have already done for all the existing goblin raid quests, i wish there was a way to scale the difficulty (or say the number of spawned enemies) based on gamestage. when other players happen to free-ride on the quest it makes the raid less challenging.
  23. Pretty neat idea. 👍 Just to be sure i get it though: Challenge quest spawns: - 3 forest giants - 3 snow giants - 2 wasteland giants Challenge quest completion goal: - kill both wasteland giants You mentioned aggressive animals. Which animals were you thinking to also spawn? What would you say is a fair reward for completing this quest? Just for reference, current completion rewards for the existing goblin quests: Goblin Raid: 1,000 coins / 1,500 XP Forest Goblin Raid: 7,500 coins / 8,800 XP Desert Goblin Raid: 7,700 coins / 8,900 XP Snow Goblin Raid: 8,000 coins / 9,000 XP Red Goblin Raid: 8,500 coins / 9,900 XP Wasteland Goblin Raid: 9,500 coins / 10,500 XP I can add this to the next update.
  24. Version 1.8 Released! (Updated download link on original post) - code cleanup and fixed a number of inconsistencies - re-calibrate HP and XP of all zombies to be more consistent - zombies of each biome have attack stats and buffs that are more unique - added lab creatures that spawn only in some of the glass pods - increased spawning of animals in all biomes - increase spawning of giants in all biomes - removed flamer zombies from screamer scout hordes As I get a better understanding of all this XML, I am better organizing my code and cleaning up redundant and unneeded XML. This update contains those improvements. I also tweaked HP and XP parameters of all the enZombies. For example, since females generally have less HP then the male zombies, they now provide less XP. Biome zombies also have unique attack buff characteristics below: FOREST ZOMBIES are 2x more infectious as vanilla. This is because the forest climate is more hospital for life and so more alive with bugs, creatures, and germs. DESERT ZOMBIES are half as infectious as vanilla. This is because the hot sand and dry climate tend to make it harder for bugs and germs to spread. SNOW ZOMBIES have slightly more HP, slightly stronger attacks, and 2x more chance to cause fatigue and stun. This is because the numbing cold makes you easier to tire during a fight, and the frozen flesh of the zombies make them tougher to 'hurt'. BURNT ZOMBIES are 3x more infectious and 2x more likely to cause abrasions and lacerations. This is because the combination of burnt and charred flesh of zombies and warm surroundings make infections easier. The burned fingers of these zombies often exposed to the bone and can more easily claw at your skin. WASTELAND ZOMBIES are 5x more infectious, 2x more likely to cause abrasions/lacerations/bleeding, and have stronger attacks. This is because... it's the wasteland. LOL. This should compliment nicely with the goal of upcoming Alpha 20 to be a more challenging biome. In addition, strippers are more infectious, zombies that wield weapons or are generally taller have farther reach, etc. Lastly, I discovered the SleeperTestChamberGSList spawner which spawns the zombies inside those glass test chamber pods located in the skyscrapers. I felt this was a great chance to have another unique zombie. So I created male and female test chamber Lab Creatures. In the vanilla game, one possible narrative is that the mad scientists pulled random zombies off the street, threw them in the glass pods, and irradiate them to make them a weapon. In my story, the mad scientists have cloned and grown new humanoid creatures in the lab, in order to create an ultimate weapon. I think it'll work. These lab creatures have pale skin because they've never seen the sunlight, and they have enlarged heads which help in their special abilities. As your gamestage increases, stronger and bigger versions of the lab creatures will appear. Unfortunately, the only POI that uses uses the SleeperTestChamberGSList in the vanilla game is the skyscraper_03 POI. Ah well. Zombies that do not appear as frequently have a bit more novelty to them. Let me know if you encounter any errors with this latest update. Enjoy!
  25. unfortunately a complete listing of all the XML attributes, properties, and their values (that the game uses) does not exist.. or, i'm not aware of it. The most you can do to, as @khzmusik has alluded to is to read the bits and pieces accumulated here on the forum and to open up an XML file in the game and eyeball through it. it would certainly make the xpath modders' lives easier to have an XML reference bible for the game, but the devs likely don't have the time/resources to maintain that for us... as it would need be updated with each new game version release since new attributes/properties/values are often added and removed for the game. there is a tool called the 7D2D Mod Creator by @wrathmaniac which is a windows application that reads in the games' XML files and let's you point and click your way into creating xpath mods. one feature is that it aggregates all the attribute/property/values for your chosen XML file in the game, and it presents it as a convenient drop down list. even though there is no explanation as to what each attribute/property/value means (nor does it know if one particular value is valid when paired to a particular attribute or property), at least the modder can see the full range of existing attribute/property/value that is available.. and have a solid base to start experimenting. this tool is certainly very useful, but unfortunately it has no way of knowing of any unused XML attributes/properties/values that the devs use but are still valid. to be fair, no modder has any way of knowing this - otherwise it would already be pinned on this forum. ha. in addition to 7D2D, i've done lots of modding with Minetest. The modding community for that game spoiled me, as they do in fact have a comprehensive mod programming reference detailing each attributes/properties/values that the modder can use. every modding community is different, and the one we have here for 7D2D just requires you roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirtier. it's the apocalypse afterall. 😁
