Survivor (3/15)



  1. I would definitely say this mod increases the difficulty of the game. I couldn't easily change that at all if i were motivated to do so at this point. The idea for this mod was to both introduce story options to pursue, increase building options, and challenge habits of play to promote player ability to improve their skills in the game by adding layered challenges to overcome. I think you could set the game difficulty to easy and that would help mitigate the difficulty some, but idk how much it would help if people don't adapt to the number of new zombies and their different behaviors and abilities.
  2. Yeah, that can happen sometimes if you accidentally select one of the archetype zombies in the profiles menu before entering a game. Or if the game doesn't have access to that folder for some reason. As for the map falling through, i've seen that from server lag or lack of sufficient ram. I would suggest trying one of the smaller maps. Also, i'm positive this setting will be an issue that will produce unrelenting spawning lag. The hordes in purgatory already will not stop all night long. Trying to add more will normally lag most computers out. As well the max wandering hordes can be upwards of 120 in size. And screamer hordes can reach 200. The concerning part of the output log to me is there's a variety of failed loot entries and that tells me there's something wrong with the mod load. Because those don't come up on any version i've seen running. Did you alter the mods or add any other mods? I've got to get to bed now, work calls in but a few short hours, but i'll check back in tomorrow after work.
  3. When was your last attempt and to which server? I'm looking at the logs and i have only one listed entry of a player i don't know already logging into one of the servers in the last week. The servers were reset around the 6th or so for the final build playtest and have been running since then. Or did you mean on your own server? If this is what you meant, do you have the server output logs?
  4. Sorry for the short answer earlier, was getting ready for work. Now for the zombies, this mod adds a lot. You should really try vanilla settings, especially the max zombies settings. Otherwise you will likely lag out before too long. Vanilla settings on a server can see 200 zombies spawn into the world in 5 minutes flat if you turn a campfire on for that long.
  5. Well there's your problem. I spent the better part of the last year figuring out how each of those work and building dependencies between most of the mods. It's not a pick and choose set of mods. You removed things the mod requires. And it looks like you ignored the don't try adding other mods note in the readme as well. Thats also creating issues.
  6. Looks like you are running additional mods if i were to guess. That's the only time i see those red errors. The yellow warnings are expected and cause no problems. Can you post your output log. It's in the game install folder then into the 7DaysToDie_Data folder.
  7. Server has been updated to running the latest version. Build 6. You can download your own copy above and try it single player if you like or join the server instead.
  8. Thanks! I'm gonna stream it over on twitch with twitch integration at the top of the hour. https://www.twitch.tv/magejosh If you want to watch me play it and get an idea of what's changed from vanilla in the mod feel free. If you just want to see me die, or help that along, please have fun. For those of you finding this post after the stream, then you can still check it out on my youtube channel: Mage Josh Plays https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT1Y4ESuLjKiqtHrRcmr57w/featured
  9. It looks like i had the gamma gun's effect group tags for the magazine size passive effect pointing to the machinegunner perk instead of perkTurrets like the others, I have it updated already in the next version. I will release that in a few days to a week at most though. I want to finish getting my endgame mission into the mod with this next update and this bugfix will be with it.
  10. Hmm, it was working but I think I know what happened there. Probably forgot a comma when I added an edit. Will look into it asap and have it fixed by next update. I'll leave the code fix here when I make it for those who don't want to wait for the update.
  11. Purgatory was a wild idea i had before i knew anything about modding back in 2020. I've learned so much since starting work on this. I know i have a lot left to do to really make it fully match my vision, but it's at the point it's fun and playable. To me and my playtesters at least. I hope you like it. You have been magically trapped in Purgatory and have to find a way to survive until you can find a way to escape. Purgatory is confirmed working on a19.5 and can be used as a server side only overhaul for servers. This means anyone installing it to their server will be able to have any player with only the vanilla game client still connect to and play on a server using Purgatory. If you are using one of the maps provided, or generated with a Purgatory modded game client, then the players will need to get a copy of Purgatory or Compopack v47 rwg modlet version and add that to their mods folder or they may not be able to connect to your map due to the number of new POI's to download. Purgatory is intended to create a new challenge for the experienced 7 days player. Dying is no longer without consequence. It should also be expected, often. In this version the endgame has been disabled for more time to be spent on better balancing and bug fixes. That does not remove the challenge or reduce the reasons to play through to at least level 500 to unlock your final items in your build. There are magic items, and almost every item destroys when it's fully degraded. There's many new challenges besides the zombie's rage and magical powers. There are 4 new perk trees, and many perks have been rebalanced. Your backpack and the loot game have been greatly altered to add new fun and challenges as well. Stun Baton and Spear have been rebalanced and improved as well. v1.0.0 b6 Download Here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aLjegyc4tSAODnNdRq1MxKBcNkkN1RAN/view?usp=sharing Credits listing with links to original versions of mods used in the overhaul's collection: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1D48Z5aJbMBLBz9KmtpzyslyuoD_pHkPTm_WrqU3J8Lc/edit?usp=sharing Known Bugs: some users have reported a red error which points to profiles.sdx on game client load. closing the console and ignoring it has not seemed to cause any further issues in all the testing done so far. you should be able to ignore it. also know for the quad shotgun to cause a red error when out of ammo and using right click to reload. Please report any further bugs here or on the discord listed in the readme.
  12. Ok that specific problem I've not had but I've had some situations where I thought that was the case. Id look into any other mods which may be remove and replacing zombies hands that loads after this one alphabetically. Or even easier, id just rename the modlet folder to have a zz at the beginning and try loading the client and a fresh game to see if you get the errors. If that produces errors, try changing the zz into aa. One of those has a high chance of fixing the compatibility issues. Otherwise feel free to share your output log or modlet list and I'll see if I can spot any compatibility issues. I've been developing my overhaul and this modlet is one of my first choices for a must include. It's also caused It's fair share of compatibility NREs with the other 221 modlets in my server side overhaul. For fear or causing more I've manually updated my copy with the new releases the last 2 times It's been updated.
  13. oh, i knew there was one other thing i meant to ask about. was that one random perc_subtract of entitydamage on the PP-19 Bizon intentional or should it have been perc_add like all the others? I flipped it and it hasn't felt too powerful. But that's in Purgatory, where all zombies are stronger and can heal after they've taken a little damage.
  14. That's excellent news. I'm not the best at explaining myself at the best of times, but i'm glad you were able to get it figured out. Oh i forgot to mention, while i was adjusting things in my copy of this awesome mod, i changed the weapon tags pointing to perkYeahScience to instead point to perkTurrets as it felt the closest in functionality and it seems to work well.
  15. As arramus was saying it requires that item property unlocked by code in the items.xml. It also has to have a pairing code in the progression.xml that code would look something like this with the perk name swapped out to the right one, the level you want it unlocked at if not 5 changed to that number, and change the toolComputer to the weapon crafting recipe you want unlocked by that level of that perk. <append xpath="/progression/perks/perk[@name='perkAdvancedEngineering']"> <effect_group> <passive_effect name="RecipeTagUnlocked" operation="base_set" level="5" value="1" tags="toolComputer"/> </effect_group> </append> If you don't have a progression.xml in there, which i don't think there is if memory serves. Then you will need to make one and add that code with your changes. Repeat that code for each different weapon you want to add. Last step is you will need to go into the recipes.xml and make sure the recipe for the weapon has the tag "learnable" in it. Those three pieces together will lock it's crafting and unlock it when you get the perk you set it to at the right level. Hope that is helpful for you.
