About Me




  1. Download the mod here (github): RangerMod Download the mod here (Nexus): RangerMod Terrible (brief) video of some stuff the mod adds here: Clicky NOTE: This mod is for alpha 20. It has not been tested on previous versions so I have no idea what it'll break, if anything. Use at your own risk on previous versions. As of version .3, this relatively small alpha 20 mod features (TL;DR): * Eight new arrows (one utility, seven utility/offense) * Three new bows (they're different from vanilla bows; recycled visual assets from vanilla) * Useful item descriptions (read them!) * Three new mods (two for bows, one for chest armor) * Seven new books and various schematics * Bundles (bulk crafting) for the included arrows (also unlocked via perks) * Three spears you can stab with (stone/iron/steel) and can't accidentally yeet across the map * Five quests * Fun If you're looking for a realistic mod, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a fun mod that gives archery a little zip, then bingo. These items (arrows, more specifically) are fairly powerful. Because of that, they can only be crafted, and they're somewhat expensive to make. The bows also add new tactical options for players, allowing one to further refine the path they want to take as a wasteland ranger. The new spears make it so that you can use a spear and not be mocked by everyone because these spears don't suck. Various other unique items to be found via quests. Important note: all this stuff (spears aside) is for bows; one of the item mods can be installed on the crossbow, that's all. This is arrows, not bolts. I have not tested this with multiplayer. It should work on a server. Install it on the server and clients, but note that it's not balanced with multiplayer in mind. Also, the arrows more or less won't do anything against players, at least, I don't think they will. If you want more info, there's an obnoxiously long readme file in the zip and viewable on the github that explains pretty much everything. NOTE part 2, the notening: if you're already using mods that add arrows and include them on the radial menu, you're probably going to run into issues. RangerMod makes it so you have more than 10 arrows on the radial menu, but not enough to account for all of the other mods out there. Basically, use other archery mods at your own risk. Even if the combination of mods does technically work, some mods modify vanilla game items, meaning that you're getting a weird combination of things that was never planned nor accounted for. NOTE part 3, the renotening: I've been updating the mod as I go and haven't yet broken my saved game, but you should back up yours just to be safe. v.31 hotfix to get quests to spawn in the correct loot. v.32 Bug fixes and changes: weapon damage (shotgun pistol buffed) and loot spawning (slightly more spawning of Midnight's books). v.33 Finally fixed the bug on the Reaper spear so it now correctly requires a 5 point investment into spears to grant an additional jump height. Probably something else fixed but I don't remember what. Cheers.

  3. GREEN ZONE QUEST by work22 TLDR Modlet Summary: Green Zone is a series of quests with some daunting survival and building challenges that take you through to the endgame (and beyond). GZ incorporates the excellent, highly recommended NPC Mod to make the world and story more alive. The starting quest “Whats that sound?” activates when you complete the main game’s starting “Journey to Settlement Locate Trader” quest. Download and install to your 7 Days to Die Mod folder (Not the user/Appdata/Roaming mod folder, but the SteamApps 7 Days to Die folder) the following mods, all available in the link below: _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ DOWNLOAD Version 1.1 (March 30, 2023) Dropbox link for Total Package with Mods required included: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ziawyzc04sva03m/Green Zone Quest March 20 2023 Version 1.1 Total Package.zip?dl=0 ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ …and turn EAC off. The Green Zone quest becomes available after the “Journey to Settlement Locate Trader” quest in the main game’s starting run. Did I mention turn EAC off in your Game Launcher when you first load up 7 Days to Die? Turn EAC off. If you are already midgame, you can also start the Green Zone quests by using the console command: Givequest quest_Greenzonequestprequel (*everything Download link being the Green Zone Quest modlet, and REQUIRED 0-Score, 0-XNPCCore, 1-khzmusik_NPC_civilians, 1-RaiderszPack, 1-SoldierPack, 1-SurvivorzPack) The latest, updated required NPC Mods are also all on this link, thanks again NPC Mod team and khzmusik: https://community.7daystodie.com/topic/26974-npcmod-a-community-project/ https://community.7daystodie.com/topic/27333-a20-khzmusiks-modlets/ 1 minute sample Green Zone gameplay video: https://vimeo.com/807310076 Who Should Play Green Zone and Why: Many players enjoy 7 Days to Die but wish for more of a story and meaning to their survival and building efforts. GZ provides you with a storyline and quests in a more “alive” world, thanks to the NPC Mod. You will encounter soldiers, civilians and raiders as you try to survive and rebuild civilization for a group of desperate survivors coming from Santa Fe. You will hire local NPC survivors to join and guard your base too. I made it for my family and I to play a meaningful story based run of 7 Days to Die. What Green Zone WILL do: Give you a simple story of 9 main quests and 3 long side quests that take you across much of the map and through to the endgame. All quests are compatible with the main game and most overhauls you may use like Rebirth. Think of it like a plugin DLC that you can progress at your own pace, on any map, while also playing the White River trader quests and other mods at the same time. You can still play the game your way. Various tutorial tips on screen display the story, and you can check your Journal Entries for any story moments you might have missed along the way. What this does NOT do: overhaul or change the underlying fabric of your 7 Days to Die game. Nothing beyond what NPC Mod changes. Nothing from the original game is removed or deleted by GZ; the extra quests are just added on. The quests are not repeatable, but you will probably (though its not required) do many White River trader quests that are repeatable if you want. “The Duke” is not really a part of the story, as I imagine the developers will eventually release his own story. Nothing is modified, buffed or debuffed. That’s all for you to mod your way. To manage expectations, GZ is a simple storyline given by mostly tutorial tips, so its not going to be a complex Skyrim or Mass Effect like plot superimposed on the 7 Days to Die engine. Some imagination required--- as the game can’t check if you built a helipad or not, for example. You’ll have to follow through building a helipad because you want to and its part of the story. Special Thanks to: The 7 Days Developers & staff, the NPC Mod Team, khzmusik, FuriousRamsey, RDGMods, Quinnbot, devon752, khaineGB, GaneshakW, drkstardragon, Laz Man, BFT2020, everyone on the community boards who posted and gave great advice and help. My family for wanting to see the mod too. And thank God for living in modern times with such great technology to do this. FAQ: 1. I’m already in the middle of a game run, can I play Green Zone Quest? Yes, use the console command below to get the starter quest “Whats that sound?” Here is the console command: Givequest quest_Greenzonequestprequel That console command above will get the chain of quests rolling. 2. What mods does Green Zone require? Yes, you need the Green Zone Quest modlet, and the NPC Mod which has 0-Score, 0-XNPCCore, also need 1-khzmusik_NPC_civilians, 1-RaiderszPack, 1-SoldierPack, 1-SurvivorzPack). All included in the download link above and at the end. My Mod folder looks like this, note the GZ mods go into the steamapps Mods folder, not the User/AppData folder for mods like Compo Pack 48 goes into. 3. I saw the initial Tutorial tip that says Welcome to the Green Zone, but I don’t see the quest starting? Green Zone activates after you finish the game’s first “Journey to Settlement Locate Trader” quest. You should then see a quest “Whats that sound?” 4. Is Green Zone compatible with the mods I’m running? Should be. Since GZ is just quests added on to the game without any other major changes, the game should work with your mods. As long as they can work with NPC Mod too (which seems most can). But I can’t speak 100% on NPC mod compatibility. I can make a “Bare bones” version of the Green Zone quest mod without NPC Mod, but I will only do that if I get enough requests. Because I do recommend the NPC Mod and enjoy it myself. 5. Do you want to see screenshots and hear about my game progress? Yes I do! Please post your awesome Green Zone base screenshots and other key moments here on this GZ thread. I am excited to be finished making this mod so I can play it myself too! 6. Can you play GZ on multiplayer? I think so, but I am playing Single Player and have not tested it on multiplayer servers. But in theory it should, again because its just XML quests tacked on. 7. I can’t get it to work, and NPC Mod isn’t working? Check to make sure EAC is toggled off to ensure NPC Mod can run. You can do this in Steam by loading 7 Days with the Game Launcher. I did not create NPC Mod, I just incorporated it into this quest modlet. Also check this link for advice: https://community.7daystodie.com/topic/26974-npcmod-a-community-project/. Lastly send me a screenshot and description of what happened and I’ll try to help as best I can (if I can). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ DOWNLOAD Version 1.1 (March 20, 2023) Dropbox link for everything at once: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ziawyzc04sva03m/Green Zone Quest March 20 2023 Version 1.1 Total Package.zip?dl=0 ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Version 1.1 hopefully fixed entity groups issue.
  4. Guppycur's awesome original concept for Vehicle Madness started way back in the early days of A17 and now continues for 7 Days to Die in A20, Guppy handed over the reigns of the project to me (Ragsy) in A18 to rework and develop further the visions we had for vehicle systems in the game. About Vehicle Madness in A20 Features 58 vehicles ( New Physics and particle effects). 80 Plus wreck variants (some may look familiar) All new custom vehicle sounds. Find working spawned vehicles in the world ( Custom code was written by HaidrGna and adapted for Vehicle Madness with his kind permission) Find Repairable vehicles versions in the world Harvest wrecked vehicles to salvage parts for crafting vehicles on the VM Workbench ( Balancing feedback required as always ) . You will come across a variety of different types of vehicles in the world that may be working or have repairable versions you can find to fix up !! There will still be spawns of the 'lower end' Vehicles in the world but the 'high end' stuff like military vehicles or other customs will be a case of either find the repairable version and repair it or craft it with harvested parts from vehicle wrecks on the VM Workbench. If your vehicle becomes damaged during gameplay you can repair it as normal with the vanilla repair kit A vehicle repair kit consists of the following parts that can be found in the world or crafted at appropriate levels on the Workbenches : <ingredient name="CarFootpump" count="1"/> <ingredient name="CarBatteryChargerUnit" count="1"/> <ingredient name="VMToolRachetSet" count="1"/> <ingredient name="HotwireKit" count="1"/> .....and a specific tiered tool . Wrench for lower tier repairs , Ratchet for mid tier vehicles and Impact Hammer for High tier vehicles. ****** Dont forget to take some fuel with you as you will need it for the repaired vehicle *****. If you dont come across a vehicle you like subject to rwg pot luck , you can still craft the vehicles by salvaging parts from vehicle wrecks such as: Transmission (and damaged version) Engine (and damaged version) Seats (and damaged versions) Carburetor (and damaged version) Battery (and damaged version) Alternator (and damaged version) Chassis (and damaged version) Body parts (doors, hood, trunk and Fender and bumper) Full Vehicle Madness Style Wheels Wheel Rims Damaged wheels We have adopted a system where 2x Damaged Parts go towards making 1 good working part along with other smaller items in the recipes. Tires that you find on the ground? They can be picked up! But, they are NOT WHEELS. You must find a wheel rim , these can be obtained by salvaging the vehicles in the world (you may be lucky and get full wheels and a wheel rim during salvage), or you can make a fully functional wheel by adding tire and wheel rim and using the air compressor tool in the Auto-Workbench. There are some full damaged wheels you can collect on the roads to make a full wheel using our 2x damaged = 1 good system. To make the VM Auto-workbench you need to first be able to craft 'normal workbenches' as you will need one to build the full Auto-workbench along with a car lift (craftable) , a compressor and a ratchet set (lootable in world) ......you can then, after learning how, assemble the various vehicle parts into the various assemblies to build your custom vehicle. Car body assembly (requires a fully body kit) Electrical subsystem assembly Car engine assembly Car Body Kit Vehicle Madness wheel set ** Vanilla vehicles can be crafted using the existing vanilla parts as before but on the VMWorkbench ( Except bicycle and Minibike), we have left in vanilla items to maintain vanilla compatibility for other vehicle mods that do use vanillla resources as part of thier builds, vanilla parts however will not fit the custom vehicles system build method ** Gas will be at a premium, this means you may have to raid gas stations or find a damaged gas tanker vehicles on the road or make your own. Gas is more expensive to make in this version ... ***** We recommend that you use a bigger backpack modlet such as this one here by KhaineGB as there are many parts to collect. Also Recommend Khaines vehicle fixes for sound and entity damage in this thread ***** The Vehicle Madness Current Team Ragsy ActiniumTiger Magejosh Éric Beaudoin A20 Testers A special mention to the testers and thanks for the feedback and bug reports Magejosh Mr Devolver Furious Ramsey R.U.I.N.S Acknowledgements : Many thanks to the various modders and contributors helping us make Vehicle Madness better since Alpha 17, without whom this would not have been possible.. Guppycur - Original creator of VM and all round support on the development path so far. Marcus - Sourcing a few hard to find vehicle models and tracked vehicle delvelopment. Telric - For some vehicle fixes in blender and his help on the buffs system .. HaidrGna - Spawning system code and general support on development. Mumpfy - 'The Texture Guru' for texture reworks for the MotoGuppy bike , NPC Mod van and the Ragsy n Tiger Van (plus his original texture work on A17 version). Random Person - Texture work on the original VM in A17 bdubyah - Donating the first wrecked vehicle pack for beta 1.1 thats still part of VM today and his support. DUST2DEATH - Support feedback and original Development of VM in A17 with Guppycur and the original team . Also thanks to valdifer for the Spanish Translations for Vehicle Madness Beta 1.1 and Beta2.0 , feel free to take the current localizations and add more languages. Thanks also go to MikeyUK for adding the missing world entity localisation for Beta2.0 and some work improving Icons. Others who have been involved of whom i may have forgotten , and rest of the 'Crew' on Guppy's Modding Discord for the support along the way. More to come..... A Dedicated POI for Automotive Repairs .. this will be a separate add-on made by Guppycur New tire fitting station and car lift system . Update and improve vehicle models or replace with better models over time . Add tracked vehicles into the mix ... ***** Note: You are not allowed to extract and alter any of the assets in this mod in any way without first gaining permission , these assets must not be used in any venture that attempts to make money out of modding **** Vehicle Madness Continues A20 Download link SMX Compatibility Patch for Vehicle Madness For those who want use the SMX suite of Hud enhancements with VM , just unzip file to your desktop and place the folder inside called ZMXuiCPVMPatch into your Mods folder. Not Needed if you dont use SMX at all. SMX - SMXhud, SMXmenu, SMXui by Sirrilion for Alpha20 ***** Please Note : This is an Overhaul mod in modlet form and is required on both Client and Server as with other mods that add new assets. ******* Overhaul Modders can use this modlet overhaul as a recommended add-on if you wish but leaving the core files of vehicle madness intact. A brand new game save is required as the mod overhaul adds a lot of new blocks in the game and changes existing ones too !! Failing to start a new save game will break your existing save so be warned up front !!! Changelog Beta 2.0 : 1. Added a lot more New Vehicles into the mix ..bringing the total to 58 for ultimate variety. 2. More wreck variations 80+. 3. Added 30 + Repairable Vehicles that you can repair on roadside with special kits, dont forget to take some fuel with you . 4. 20+ custom vehicles that may or may not spawn in the world with the luck of RWG. 5. Crafting these new vehicles is still an option at the VM Workbench for those harder to find vehicles. 6. New Vehicle Sounds applied for all vehicles. 7. Loot overhaul inline with A20 system ( as usual feedback much appreciated on this area). 8. Our own particle systems for exhausts and vehicle damage. 9. Reviewed and updated storage sizes and vehicle speeds 10. Apocaliptic Style textures for the rustic used look 11. Recipe changes for crafting to help with vanilla engine shortages in the original version . 12. Added more deco stuff to collect on roads .. 13. More wrecks in world specifically on the country roads and reduced loot to balance out the numbers . 14. Support for vehicle mods on all vehicles except the cosmetic option as these vehicles are all custom made textures. Some vehicles have seating mods but not all (example Military Truck has 8 fixed) 15. Numerous of the the original vehicles have had brake lights added and some addition headlights where needed. 16. Added a few decorative advertising boards to world ..these can be harvested . 17. Vanilla Vehicles now require the VM Vehicle WorkBench to build them except the minibike and bicycle. 18. Revisited the vehicle damage scales on blocks ... Targeted individual blocks now and adjusted some down and some more added ... (like for instance vehicles ran into and stopped dead on mailboxes and cactus and so on.. vehicles will not destroy any wood on bridges anymore This system is going to be replaced with vehicles that have individual profiles at some point). 19. Adjusted all vehicles to have lower degredation so when you hit 25% damage level particles are triggered ..so be careful and try not too crash too much 20. Reworked vehicle physics in-line with vanilla settings. 21. Making gas is more expensive and requires more oil shale to craft your own gas. 22. Some vehicles will attach parts/vehicles from player inventory when you get in them , Bicycle - Motorcycle - engines ect ect .... these are only on the 'Pickup style vehicles or open trucks but not all and is still WIP. 23. Added recipes to make the 'repair kit' parts on a workbench if you dont find enough of them in the loot. 24. Changed some stack sizes to help with looting vehicle parts if you do not wish to use the bigger back pack modlets. Changelog Beta 1.1 : 1. Added various new wrecks created by bdubyah for the ultimate salvage variation ( There is only 1 vanilla sedan in chain as required by some POI's and all others are now custom). 2. Tweaked some vehicle speeds and camera positions and some storage on the big vehicles 3. Increased amount of wrecks on roads and in biomes to provide more resources. 4. Experimental block damage changes 5. Added Quad to world spawns and reduced spawns very slightly (feedback on this will be required as catering for server vs single player). 6. Added compressor to EMS and Military loot options , increased probabilities in automotive and rare automotive loot as were too rare before. 7. Removed damaged motorcyle part2 from spawn ( will add more motorcycle variant wrecks at some point) Have fun 🙃 The Vehicle Madness Team !!!
  5. an item you can craft using the various models of mailboxes and drop offs throughout the world that when you place down allows you to mail items to friends as long as you know their information ( like a pin code they added to it i guess) this is just a bare basic idea you can flesh out with more ideas if you decide to make this, but figured it wouldn't be tooo hard to make but I'm not a Modder so i wouldn't know though i have never seen a mod try this before and it seems there might be a small demand for it so here i am requesting it i suppose lol
  6. ErrorNull Zombies (enZombies): This mod has been updated for Alpha 20 and adds much more zombie variations to the game, using the UMA archetype method most notably showcased by the Snufkin's Custom Server Side Zombies - PLUS mod maintained by arramus. All the UMA Zombies by khzmusik are also included in enZombies. The goal of this mod is to always be server-side, thus only needs to be installed on the server, and not on the individual clients. These zombies are meant to be your average walkers and crawlers to complement the existing vanilla ones.. though stronger and boss-level zombies are slowly being added. Each enZombie also has their own feral and radiated variant. [Exiting the duct work and into the main store - it was realized a wrong turn was made.] enZombies spawn out in the terrain based on the biome, with each zombie group sporting a unique color theme that matches the biome. So you will find foresty zombies in the forest, deserty zombies in the desert, snowy zombies in the snow, and so forth. enZombies also spawn in many other scenarios, like in wandering hordes, screamer hordes, sleepers in POIs, and during the bloodmoon horde night. Unfortunately, there's no easy way to spawn zombies in these other scenarios while also based on specific biomes, so a more random range of enZombies will be seen there. The short challenge quests are an underutilized feature in the vanilla game, and enZombies appear within them as well. New challenge quests have also been added to showcase the new zombies. All new quests are simply found as items within the usual loot containers where vanilla quests are found. Many more quests are planned. Compatibility: enZombies and the add-ons (see Add-ons section) are designed for Alpha 20. Using other mods with enZombies might work and might not. Even if an unsupported mod does work without errors, it will be missing the custom biome spawn behavior that enZombies use. If there is enough demand for a specific unsupported mod, I can create a patch mod for it (see Patches section) so that it works with enZombies and recognizes the custom biome spawn groups. If you are getting errors or strange glitches while using unsupported mods with enZombies, feel free to report the errors and what other mods you are using, and I'll be glad to take a glance when I get the chance. Usage: You may use my mod as it is presented, or just pull my zombie definitions from archetypes.xml and entityclasses.xml and merge them into your own mod. Don't forget to grab corresponding code from items.xml and buff.xml. If you are just pulling the zombie XML code, I'd appreciate if you credit me somewhere like on your website, discord or forum post. The more exposure enZombies can have, the more players use it, and the more motivation for me to continue development. I love making these custom zombies and hope to continue on for a long while, but it does take lots of time and effort. ** Download and Install ** This mod is not intended to be used with any other mods, except for the Add-Ons and Patches mods - refer to Add-Ons and Patches section further below. Note: GitHub adds the word "-main" to the filename of the zip when downloading. To avoid issues, please remove that word and ensure it does not show in the folder name when placing the mod into your Mods folder. Version 2.71 (updated 9/27/2022) - 👉 Download from GitHub 👈 ⚙️ Progress Tracker https://github.com/ErrorNull0?tab=projects ⚙️ Add-Ons: These are optional mods created for enZombies. The main enZombies mod must be installed in order for these Add-Ons to work. Patches: Install these 'patch' mods to make enZombies compatible with its 'target' mod. Go to the enZombiePatches GitHub page . These patch mods do two things: makes the target mod aware of the new custom spawning groups that enZombies uses for outside biome spawning. And, it allows the player to enable zombie body harvesting for the zombies or entities that are part of the target mod. Instructions: 1) Download the package which will include all the patch mods listed below. 2) Open the package and find the folder that matches the target mod you want compatibility for. 3) Take that folder and place it into your 7 Days to Die "Mods" folder. 4) Be sure to have the main enZombies mod installed. 5) Be sure you also install the main target mod that the patch is patching. Known Issues: There are some interesting bugs when working with UMA zombies and molding them from the archetypes.xml. It's not unique to enZombies and are present in any mod that uses UMA style zombies - for example, the Snufkin mod also contain some UMA zombies which will experience these bugs. In my opinion, the relative ease in creating and modifying these zombies outweigh the quirks: Wish List to The Fun Pimps: Here I list enhancements to the 7 Days modding experience that I would love for the developers to add which will allow me to add more immersion to enZombies and the game as a whole. Credits: Thanks to @Snufkin for starting it all with your Snukfin's Server Side Z(S)ombies mod, and thanks to @arramus for keeping it going with the Snufkin's Custom Server Side Zombies - PLUS mod. I studied these mods for weeks to figure out how it worked and gave me inspiration to contribute as well. Also thanks to @khzmusik who gave me permission to add his UMA Zombies into enZombies. Much appreciated! Screenshots: Mentioned Mods: Snufkin's Custom Server Side Zombies - PLUS Robeloto's Custom Zombies mod KHzMuzik's UMA Zombies
  7. // GREETINGS // Welcome to the new and improved SMX series for 7 Days to Die - Alpha 20. The goal with this mod is to give the entire 7 Days to Die user interface an extreme makeover an refashion it into how I believe the user interface for the game should be experienced. SMX consist of several modlets which can be broken down into three separate mods: SMXhud, SMXmenu and SMXui. These are all stand alone and can be used separately or, as is the intention, together with the other two and all three mods combined is what makes the SMX experience complete! In addition we have the core, the main modlet if you will, SMXlib. This is a library modlet and even though it makes very little changes on its own it holds all the assets that the other mods need to function. Because of this it is a mandatory modlet that will need to be downloaded and installed no matter which of the other ones you choose to use. SMX tries to create an experience as close up towards the vanilla user interface as possible. With little to no changes that can disrupt the balance of the game. The only exception being the extra slot on the crafting queue which is there to make the design fit and hardly disrupts game balance! Then we have the optional modlets. We are aware that some people want the extra bling bling, and as such we offer these as optional downloads that can be installed alongside the main modlets from each series to expand upon the features from vanilla. We offer official optional downloads such as: Target Health Bar, Bigger Bags and a Third Forge Slot. Other optional modlets and compatibility patches might become available from other mod authors. We hope you will enjoy playing 7 Days to Die with the new experience that SMX brings to the table. Have fun! - The SMX team. // TERMS OF USE // You are allowed to use these modlets as is for your own personal use and/or on a server you run and/or administrate.

Please, do not hesitate to contact us for any issue, big or small, we just ask you to run this simple checklist before coming to ask us for help and just maybe you will be able to help yourself first. Did you install all the downloaded folders? Do note that SMXhud and SMXui both have an additional folder that needs installing. (ZMXhudCP and ZMXuiCP) Did you install SMXlib? This modlet contains all the assets (custom graphics) we use and without this your UI will be mostly transparent. Did you check the folder hierarchy and made sure you didn't install the modlets too deep? Did you disable ALL other mods or modlets and then try again to see if the problem still exists? (Be careful with this, backup your save!) Did you check the support sites to see if anyone else have had the same problem recently? If you ran this checklist and still need our support please contact us on one of the links below or just post in this thread. But please, only post on one of the support channels. Pick one and stick with it as we do monitor all of them and having to answer the same thing on several sites just leads to confusion. // INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL PROCEDURES // First and foremost, the most important thing you need to do with SMX in A20: >> !!TURN OFF EAC!! << Backup your save game before installing ANY mods to the game. We don't expect SMX to cause any issues, it is just good practice! Download the mod or mods you want to install from the list below. Decompress the downloaded files with WinRAR or a compatible compression software like 7zip. Copy or move the Mods folder you just decompressed into your 7 Days to Die installation folder. Overwrite if prompted. Verify your install by checking that the ModInfo.xml file is located in this Hierarchy: "\Mods\modletname\ModInfo.xml" Remove by deleting the modlet folder in question from within the Mods folder. // DOWNLOAD LOCATIONS // SMX modlets can be downloaded from Nexusmods (our main site) or GitHub. Alternatively it can be installed via the 7 Days to Die Mod Launcher by sphereii. When opting to use Nexusmods or GitHub you will have to do the installation manually by following the procedure above. When opting to use the Mod Launcher the installation procedure will be more automated but you will need to make sure that all the different modlets are installed as you won't get nested downloads like from the other two. Please note that the Mod Launcher is a separate piece of software that you will need to download and install on your system and then setup properly before downloading mods and modlets with it. The link below is to the main Mod Launcher web page. Follow the links below to go to the download sites and then select which mods to download from there. // SMXhud - THE HUD REPLACEMENT MODLET // SMXhud changes the game HUD. Everything you see on the interface while running around in the game world is part of the HUD experience. The purpose of SMXhud is to change that part of the user interface and change it into a more horror like and gritty art style all while trying to be as informative as possible but not intrusive. SMXhud - The Base HUD conversion. ZMXhudCPTHB - Enables the Target Health Bar for SMXhud. (Install optional modlet ZMXhudCPTHB to get the target health bar) // SMXmenu - THE MENU REPLACEMENT MODLET // SMXmenu changes the game menus. Everything you see when you start the game or when navigating the different options and settings is part of the menu experience. The purpose of SMXmenu is to extend the art style and feeling from the HUD into the menus and to supplement SMXhud to create the SMX experience. SMXmenu - The Main Menu conversion. SMXmenu - The In-Game Menu conversion. SMXmenu - Video Settings Window. ( !! NOT YET AVAILABLE IN A20 - COMING !! ) // SMXui - THE UI REPLACEMENT MODLET // SMXui is an extension of SMXhud and SMXmenu and will bring the art style over to the rest of the user interface. We've tried to maintain as close a relation to the vanilla interface as possible but we have also granted ourselves some artistic freedom when it comes to some areas. It deviates from vanilla with the fifth crafting queue slot which I added to make it fit the overall design better. The other changes we made are all optional like the third forge slot, the target health bar and the big bag conversion modlets for those that want a bit bigger bags. SMXui - The forge with the third forge slot enabled. (Install optional modlet ZMXuiCPTFS to get the third forge slot and ZMXuiCPBBM to get the bigger backpack) SMXui - Totally reworked skills windows. The goal was to make it look like a talent screen. ( !! NOT YET AVAILABLE IN A20 - COMING !! ) SMXui - Trader Conversation Window. SMXui - Character Screen Window with normal backpack and the item info window. SMXui - Vehicle Window with normal backpack and empty info window. SMXui - Map Windows with increased map texture and 48 fully configurable waypoint icons.. // SMX - THE OPTIONAL MODLETS // SMX sports a variety of optional modlets. Some are meant as small QoL additions to the vanilla experience like the third forge slot and the target health bar while others are meant as pure extensions that push the vanilla experience out of balance. ZMXuiCPBBM - A scrollable big bag mod for SMXui. It has 100 slots and adds search functions to the backpack, containers and vehicle storages.

    A20 VideoPlayers Mod

    VideoPlayers Modlet (Single Player Stable) Note: Seems to work on Dedi, if you follow the install instructions, otherwise it will crash your server! You were warned. This A20 modlet now combines several A18/A19 modlets (Video Players, Billboards, and Theater Screens) You must connect a wire to each device using the wire tool to activate it, then you can remove that wire. YouTube Video: YouTube Video: YouTube Video: Description Introduces mass media into the game. Be sure to active each of these with a wire using the wire tool. Billboard01 is a mechanical billboard that shows 3 unique images on each side of the billboard. This is a single texture sheet which you can edit in a graphics program then import into unity and the reexport. BillboardVideoMP4 is a electronic version, that will play 12 video clips in rotation. Like 12 TV channels. Best part is you can replace the 12 video files in the mods/resources folder with your own. In default, video0 is static, 1 is a cartoon clip, and 3 a classic video. All the rest are static. Theater Screen Adds a flat theater screen into the game. Designed with POI makers in mind, this screen is 16:9 format and 8x5 blocks in size. VideoTV is a large tabletop television that will play 12 video clips (or entire movies) in rotation. TVWall is a wall mounted version setup to replace the existing small wall mounted televisions. Its currently set to replace 20% of them but that can be adjusted in xml. Some will be on by default, playing static, but otherwise are broken. Replace video0 with a public service disaster message of your choice. If you put down a land claim block you can pick these up by holding the E key. Installing Single Player Normal mod install. Drop the mod into your Mods folder and your done. If you swap out any of the videos, they must have the exact same name and file extension as the one you're replacing. Those names are hard coded. It won't like strange .mp4 encoding so keep it simple. Encoding help can be found in the old thread. Dedi Experimental - read carefully For some reason, the dedicated servers default startup file named startdedicated.bat has a Unity startup parameter -nographics . -nographics means dont load various shaders and the video decoding files needed to render video. So your job is to edit that file before starting up the dedi. On about line 69 of that file you will see this line: start %GAMENAME% -logfile "%LOGFILE%" -quit -batchmode -nographics -configfile=serverconfig.xml -dedicated Change it to: start %GAMENAME% -logfile "%LOGFILE%" -quit -batchmode -configfile=serverconfig.xml -dedicated Failure to do this properly will crash your dedi hard and fast. Download The Modlet can be found here: https://github.com/7D2D/A20Mods/blob/main/VideoPlayers.zip or in the ModLauncher. Known Issues Sometimes the sound plays for a few seconds if you enter the game next to a billboard that has sound. This is because I need to active them on start as I can't use code to do that. Minor annoyance. You need to activate a newly placed video device by attaching a wire to it, but you can immediately remove that wire. That is because I'm using the switch class and it expects a wire to the switch. No way to fix that without code. Videos need to be in .mp4 format. There is a limit to how much memory can be allocated to video, so 12 long movies may well crash the server.

  13. Some A20 updates for my modlets. Screenshots in the reply. GitHub Repository Link: https://github.com/RELXIX-7DTD/A20_XML_Modlets RELXIX_Blocks_AllShortGrass Makes all the grasses in the game short. Leaves Snowberry normal due to it blocking building. Now you can more easily see what to clear for building. RELXIX_Blocks_PickThisUp Enable CanPIckUp on several items throughout the game world. (curtains, miniblinds) RELXIX_Blocks_TreeDrops In addition to any default or perk drops this mod adds a small chance for the following items to drop from Trees when chopped down: Eggs, Feathers, Honey. The number of drops over 1000 trees is insignificant. I did this more for atmosphere. RELXIX_EntityClasses_TimeStayAfterDeath Adjusts the TimeStayAfterDeath for entities (extending DroppedLoot container times, etc). RELXIX_Loot_MorePots Adds more pots to the world by adding them as a specific item to cupboards. It is unrealistic with multi-burner stoves to think everyone cleared out most/all their pots and pans as the world ended. RELXIX_Shapes_RestoreShapesHP - This sets all shapes back to the way they used to be with full HP based on b218. This is because their cost and upgrade costs did not change, only their value/Hit Points which is unfair, IMHO. Who wants to pay for a full steel block and only get something weaker than concrete? Not me. -- Deprecated as of b237. b237 adds scaling cost feature (and also reverted a number of blocks to prior full strength). RELXIX_UI_CompassCenterHighlight Adds a highlight to the middle of the Compass RELXIX_UI_CompassStats Adjusts the position of the Day and Time, adds Air Temp, Wind Speed, Current Elevation RELXIX_UI_EnableTargetHPBar Turns the Target HP Bar on without godmode being enabled. RELXIX_UI_MenuTime This adds the display of Day, Time on the menu screens (inventory, vehicle, quests, etc) RELXIX_UI_ToolbeltSlotNumbers Adds Numbers for each slot on the toolbelt. RELXIX_UIMENU_AddLandClaimCountOption This adds an option to the menu for Land Claim Count with options '1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, 100, 150, 200' as Land Claim Block Count choices on the Multiplayer Tab with the rest of the Land Claim options. These options are also added as available filter choices in the server browser. RELXIX_UIMENU_AddMaxZedAndAnimalOptions This adds options to the menu for Max Zombies and Max Animal Counts normally only configurable via serverconfig.xml. RELXIX_UIMENU_More24HourLengthOptions This adds the options '5, 150, 180, 210, 240, 270, 300' minutes as 24 Hour Length options in addition to the default '10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90, 120' for those who want really fast or really slow days. These options are also added as available filter choices in the server browser. RELXIX_UIMENU_MoreDayLightLengthOptions This adds the option '2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 20, 22' hours as Day Light Length options in addition to the default '12, 14, 16, 18' for those who want really short or really long days. These options are also added as available filter choices in the server browser. RELXIX_UIMENU_MoreLandClaimSizeOptions This adds the options '91, 101, 125, 151, 175, 201' as Land Claim Size options in addition to the default '21, 31, 41, 51, 71' options. These options are also added as available filter choices in the server browser. RELXIX_UIMENU_MoreLootAbundanceOptions This adds the options '5, 10, 250, 300, 400, 500' as Loot Abundance options in addition to the default '25, 33, 50, 67, 75, 100, 150, 200' options. These options are also added as available filter choices in the server browser. RELXIX_UIMENU_MoreRWGSizeOptions This adds '5120,7168,9216,11264,12288,13312,14366,15360' size options in addition to the default '6144,8192,10240' on the New Game Menu and Editing Tools RWG Preview World Generator Menu. RELXIX_Items_NVTweak With an already restricted FOV the added restriction on the NV Goggles just felt too much. By combining 2 filter sets I was able to get a faded feel for nightvision without the goggle blockage but retain a bit of color. I felt Bright effect as an alternative to the NightVision effect alone made it too much like daytime so added the VibrantDeSat to dull the colors some. RELXIX_EagleEyeShadesAndNightVision Adds a new set of shades combining the function of Shades (perception), Tough Guy Glasses (fortitude), Lucky Googles (loot level + treasure radius), Ski Googles (agility), and Nerd Glasses (Int, Crafting time, XP) Requires 1 of each to craft. Also adds a new NightVision goggle set that can be has all of those functions. Requires Nightvision Googles and Eagle Eye Shades to craft. - Recipes require advanced engineering level 4-5 respectively, crafted at workbench. These use the Night Vision as displayed by my NVTweaks mod. Just like Lucky Goggles these have a range of 3-5 for Loot Bonus. Note: Perception does not show in the list of Stats due to display limitations. Perception can be confirmed on the Skills screen where it will be green/boosted. NEWLY ADDED: RELXIX_HighlightBookState I originally tried coloring the icons but that didn't work. I resorted to the technique I found in this thread of replacing the icons: https://community.7daystodie.com/topic/24306-mod-that-lets-you-know-youve-already-read-a-book/ Books that have been read have a red icon. Books that have not been read have a green icon. A second set of icons were included in case the user would like those reversed. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2813840879
  14. *** WARNING *** *** THIS WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU PLAY THE GAME!!!! *** Repair kits have always been odd. Always using the same 2 items to repair anything just seemed wrong. So here is a fix for that. Each kit will handle a certain type or group of Items. Each type of repair kit is color coded and has an item icon in the corner as well so you can find the type you are looking for easier. This modlet is server side friendly, so you can just drop it in and go. Repair Kit Types: Iron Repair Kit - this is just the current repair kit in the game. Any non-vanilla items will still be repaired with this. Steel Repair Kit - Repairs Steel Tools. Motor Repair Kit - Repairs all tools that have a motor on them and the Generic Motor. Pistol Repair Kit - Repairs the Pistol, Magnum 44, SMG, and Desert Vulture. Shotgun Repair Kit - Repairs the Double Barrel, Pump, and Auto shotguns. Rifle Repair Kit - Repairs the Hunting, Marksman, and Sniper rifles. Machine Gun Repair Kit - Repairs the AK-47, Tactical AR, and M60. Bow Repair Kit - Repairs the Wooden Bow, Compound Bow, Iron Crossbow, and Compound Crossbow. Non-Metal Armor Repair Kit - Repairs cloth and leather armor. Metal Armor Repair Kit - Repairs Iron and Steel Armor. Military Armor Repair Kit - Repairs Military Armor. A few items require JUST the parts of the item to be repaired. Those are the Steel Sledge, Stun Baton, Steel Club, and Machete. Those items just require the parts of that item to repair them. I am looking for feedback on this from the community. I am up for any suggestions if they make sense in the grand scheme of things. For example, originally I had Corn Meal being used in the gun repair kit. I know of a few people that use this in real life. But if it gets any moisture in it, it turns to a gooey paste pretty quick. And in the apocalypse, keeping that stuff dry in a repair kit would be impossible, so it is not in there (yet, and may not be in the future) Recipe suggestions are welcome as well. There will be some updates for sure, but this is a pretty good start on it.

  15. Introduction The Oakraven Forest Collection offers an experimental ‘pick and mix’ bundle of Quality of Life modlets to enhance your 7D2D experience. It is brought to you by oakraven and arramus. These modlets will be regularly updated based on feedback, and the number of modlets will continue to increase as they move from development stage to experimental release, and then to stable. They can be added as standalone individual modlets, or combined to cover many aspects of game-play. Since these modlets contain custom content, they must be installed in your ‘Mods’ folder on both the server and within player game files. Detailed Installation Instructions For Server Admin/Hosts and Players who have never installed a 7D2D mod before, here are some simple step by step instructions. 1. If you've never installed a mod before, it is necessary to create a 'Mods' folder in the main directory (typically: \SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\7 Days To Die). If you have a custom install or your server host has modified the installation location, then you may have to explore. 2. Simply make a new folder called Mods (with a capital M to reflect standard nomenclature) in your '7 Days To Die' main directory folder. 3. You can now drag the mod or collection of mod folder(s) directly out of the zipped file and it can be placed into the Mods folder. Does this Mod need to be installed in the server/client host? = YES Do players also need to install this Mod? = YES If players do not install the same mods as the Server/Host, they will not be able to join. The Oakraven Forest Collection is stored on Moddb and can be viewed and downloaded here as individual modlets. No need to Log-in to download. https://www.moddb.com/mods/oakraven-forest-collection Alternatively, you can download each modlet individually on their own page. Again, downloads do not require Log-in. @wickidaurazgaming has kindly created some instructional videos to demonstrate how to use the mods. The videos are directly linked back to wickidaurazgaming's You Tube channel and can be reached by clicking on the link embedded in the mod name. Current Available Mods and Mods in Progress 1.

  16. Important: For this modlet to work properly, it needs to be installed on the server and every player's computer. Do you have friends that can't help themselves and store everything in a specific box for each type of items? I do. This mods add new graphic designs for the storage boxes and also add half-block versions of the storage boxes (for more headspace). The new designs are added to the Wooden Storage / Furniture variant block. When the new containers are destroyed, they are put in the player inventory. This allow players to move the containers or to select a different design. Note: the modlet has been tested and works with Alpha 20. 1.8: Fix for Alpha 20 Created a Storage Boxes variant helper block for Alpha 20 Fix the Variant menu order 1.7: More ammo crates Added crates and half-crates for 9mm, arrow, magnum, and shell ammo Added crates and half-crates for melee and range weapons 1.6: Crates for mod parts Changed the modding design (its purpose was not clear enough) Added designs for Armor, Vehicle (in preparation for Alpha 20), and Weapon Mods crates and half-crates Fix a typo that was there since forever, if you used an ammo crate of half-crate, you will probably have to remove it with and place it back 1.5: Even more crates Cement Mixer, Chemistry, Crafting, Electricity, Gas, Gun Craft, Modding, Plants, Resources, Tool Smithing 1.4: New crates New Auto Parts and Workbench designs 1.3: Bug fixes Secure Armors Storage now available to players (only could use Insecure version before) Writable Storage now get drop in your inventory if you destroy it 1.2: Alpha 19 fixes Fix: The wood container variant block changed name with Alpha 19 Work on textures to make them look better with new lighting system 1.1: Rebuild assets for the new linear lighting (Alpha 19) 1.0: Fist official version which includes New design for generic, armors, barter (trader), forge, mining, and recycle storage boxes Everything is also available in half-cube format All new storage boxes are added to the wood storage and furniture helper Release Notes v1.8 Download v1.8 All my mods

  18. DOWNLOAD Snufkin's Custom Server Side Zombies - PLUS (A20) can be downloaded here: Please select the correct build for your set up. A20 Stable (20.6 b9) - https://github.com/arramus/Snufkin-Custom-Zombies-Plus-A20-2022September23 And this is an archived build for any players still using A19. A19 - https://github.com/arramus/SnufkinCustomZombiesPLUS-A19-2021Oct31 And an optional A20 Party Pack Starter Kit to ease players back into the first few days of a new World. https://github.com/arramus/A20SnufkinPartyPackStarterKit INTRODUCTION Snufkin's Custom Server Side Zombies Plus is a combination of Snufkin's Server Side Custom Zombies and additional community made zombies as an integrated 'PLUS Add On'. There are currently 42 entities (15 Snufkin and 27 Snufkin PLUS) We attempted to run the PLUS zombies as a stand alone mod but spawning was unstable and it was better to combine them together. The Snufkin Custom Zombies Plus contains the following entities: 1. All of the well known Snufkin's Server Side Custom Zombies (In alphabetical order) - Archon - Banshee - Bomber - Cowhead - Geist - Juggernaut - Mantis - Parasite - Psycho - Scarecrow - Scorcher - Siren - Undertaker - Wendigo - Wrestler 2. PLUS Add On Server Side Custom Zombies (In alphabetical order) - Bogeyman (arramus) - Crispy (arramus) - Demolition Derby (arramus) - Geist Archer (Snufkin base with edits by arramus - based on Tipsy Squatch Gaming/Evil Spartan's concept and intensive testing) - Golden Juggernaut (Snufkin base with edits by arramus - based on Tipsy Squatch Gaming/Evil Spartan's concept and intensive testing) - Hammer Spammer (arramus - based on ShoudenKalferas request for White River archetypes) - Hell Bear (oakraven) - Hell Boar (oakraven) - Hell Flyer (oakraven - Inspired by @Robeloto) - Hell Lion (oakraven) - Hell Shocker (oakraven) - Hell Wolf (oakraven) - Hisser (arramus - based on Tipsy Squatch Gaming/Evil Spartan's concept and intensive testing with Snufkin Banshee and Mantis elements) - Mittens (arramus - @Lonestarcanuck request) - Mother Clucker (Inspired by Catman) - Motorhead (arramus) - Navezgane Slasher (arramus) - Oni (Blue and Red versions - arramus) - Paindeer (arramus - based on @kdthehun's Rudolph suggestion - Sorry about the nose and light color and lack of Santa hat. Advice needed on those) - Pogo (arramus) - Shark WFLB (arramus) - Snow Bear (arramus with support from oakraven to consider an appropriate texture) - Spider Pipe Bomber (arramus) - Tipsy Pink Squatch (arramus - Tipsy Squatch Gaming) - Tipsy Squatch (arramus - Tipsy Squatch Gaming) - Wight Radiation Shower (arramus - based on, and directly using code from bdubyah's 'Feral Ghoul' from 'The Wasteland' Mod) - Zombie Direwolf (oakraven and arramus) As with the spirit of Snufkin's original concept and suggestions to the community, there is no stopping other modders from expanding on the originals in their own direction just as we are doing here. CUSTOMISING GAMEPLAY The entitygroups.xml (default can be found with the Config folder along with alternative versions within the Server Admin Spawning Options folder) is the first place for Server Admin/Hosts/Players to check if you would like to customise the Snufkin Zombies PLUS experience. If you would like a challenge, the default version is for you. If you prefer a more relaxed environment, then there is a lite_version in the additional options folder which can be renamed and moved to replace the default. The lite_version has all the Snufkin Zombies PLUS characters, but at a lower probability to appear. The lighter version is appropriate for new Worlds which can create a very high density of custom zombies until more regions unlock and allow them to spread out. There is also a version for Horde Night only and no Horde Night for each type. If you run the Horde Night only version you will receive a spawning.xml error since that file will no longer see the entitygroups for regular non horde night game play. That will tell you it's working ^^. You can delete the spawning.xml file to remove these warnings if you only want to use the Horde Night only version. FAQ About Customising:- Q.1 How exactly do I remove a zombie, such as the flying shark? A.1 Go to the entitygroups.xml file and delete every entry which looks similar to this (note the number at the end is different in different areas and versions) <entity name="SharkWFLB" prob="0.075"/> In the default entitygroups.xml there are currently 8 entries for the flying shark in regular day time and night time groups and removing them is a fast process. However, there are 322 entries in the bottom section which regulates the spawning for a Blood Moon Horde Night event. It is a lot to remove, but they are split into 7 groups where each group has an identical value. Using a tool such as Notepad++ will allow you to delete them in large batches automatically. Q.2 I want more flying sharks to appear. How do I achieve this? A.1 Go to the entitygroups.xml file and look for all entries similar to this: <entity name="SharkWFLB" prob="0.075"/> Change the prob="0.075" value to a higher value such as prob="0.15". Finding a value which suits your gameplay is subjective and the best value is what feels most appropriate through trial and error. CREDITS Thank you, as always, to @Snufkin for the base, and @Slawa for a wealth of support in the beginning. In addition, @Dre , @BubbaJoe , @Catman and @Ti2xGr have been adding their very own unique modifications to create an environment that suits their players; some of which we have gratefully incorporated into this Plus version. Some of the new PLUS entities @oakravenis incredibly active in the background and specializes in both stabilising existing mods and creating new mods. Here are oakraven's land based 'Hell group' zombies with Archon standing among them. These new characters ustilise their wings for additional jump height and will add to the demands of defending your base. Hell Lion, Hell Boar, Hell Wolf, and Hell Bear make a formidable team and will certainly come out in force during a Blood Moon event. This is one which arramus always wanted to bring into game play as an entity ever since he spied the concept within Snufkin's base mod. The Shark WFLB is a play on a 'James Bond' type evil villain over dramatic weapon. It flies, homes in, and then unleashes its lasers. It is not an overly powerful threat while on foot but will pick up the pace while in a vehicle as it is based on the vulture game code. It is both loved and hated to equal degrees. ^^ oakraven's Hell Flyer and Hell Shocker swarming and inflicting damage. This pair shoot darts or shock bolts and have their own unique audible narration as they come into closer proximity. These will add to the airborne threats and give this PLUS version a wider balance of ground, mid level leaping, and airborne threats. Mittens guarding her territory. She spits acid and is something that @Lonestarcanuck requested. Paindeer taking care of its friends. The Paindeer has a flashlight attachment built into its nose which is covered by a snowball. Defintely easy to spot at night. One warning about the Paindeer; her axe also gives her protection from frontal melee attack. Motorhead, the mechanical marvel teaming up with his biker brethren. Don't let him come knocking at your door for too long as his block damage will make him an unwelcome guest. Snufkin was keen for other modders to take advantage of the game assets to create unique server side characters with their own special skill sets. By emulating Snufkin's approach and expanding with further features, we hope you will enjoy these additional zombies in addition to the Snufkin regulars.
  19. Loot Randomizer This mod, as the name suggests, randomizes the loot you get from about everywhere. Additionally, you can loot just about any block or item, most of which aren't even obtainable in vanilla. Not that they would usually really help you either. Qualities are also equal so the chances of finding a quality one M60 and a quality six one are the same no matter your progression in-game. As you can probably guess, this mod isn't balanced at all and will not work with mods that add new items or lootable blocks. I may add patches for mods if certain ones are requested a lot. This mod is again server-side, you can use it on your server without the clients having to download anything. If you find any errors (items you loot giving errors, loot containers giving errors while looting them) or items that are completely useless, feel free to post about them and I'll consider them. This mod is still highly unstable, there is about no way for me to check that all the ~150 loot containers and ~3500 lootables work correctly. From my short testing things should be rather stable, but it could turn out to be a false impression. So it is not adviced to use this mod on a save you don't want to risk losing. At least create a back-up if you want to use this mod in your save. Technically it should work on an existing save too, although it may affect player-placed containers when first installed. Just be careful with your saves and preferably start a new one for this mod. Download the mod here!
  20. Double your fun! The "Duplex Update" is here! This update includes 12 previously unused and new Duplex House POIs and a custom tile for them to spawn on! The Duplex Tile will spawn 14 of the 15 duplexes randomly, giving you a new arrangement every time! The previously released Residential Intersection 02 which had 3 Duplexes will now also spawn 3 random Duplexes from the list. Bonus! This release also features two new park POIs specifically to showcase Cranberry Monster's upcoming Bikes Mod! THIS MOD IS BUNDLED WITH THE MODLET, so nothing extra is needed to use it! This small mod adds salvageable bikes and bike racks to the game which can be harvested for bike parts. There are also several aesthetic and quality-of-life fixes to many previously released POIs! For Deverezieax's POIs modlet use this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dxgMa_r7e_aYK7UekaYVFshwjZ3g__jQ/view?usp=share_link The modlet includes full instructions how to install, but in brief put the unzipped modlet folder in your 7 Days to Die "Mods" folder. You will need to create a mods folder if you don't already have one. NOTES: The "Cran's Arcade" POI in Deverezieaux's modlet still requires Cranberry Monster's Arcade Games/Pinball Machines mod to spawn in world. It can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r5tjy2eolup4svo/videogame_cabinets_A20.zip?dl=0 Credit to Cranberry Monster! It is not required for the rest of the modlet to work. The arcade POI will just not spawn without it. *TERAGON POI list added 1/26/2023
  21. Welcome to my mod project! This mod was born with the purpose of fixing the iron sights of all weapons! How? My goal is to adjust the height of the front sights, align them correctly with the rear sight, and add the latter to all weapons that are missing one. Over time I have gradually improved other aspects and added new components where I could. Here I completely overhauled the concept of aiming with the scope, using the real scope on the weapon rather than a small reticle drawn on a black background. This game has caught my attention since the very earliest alphas (I'm one of the players who played Alpha 1 back in 2013) and I fell in love with this game from the early days. But there are some things, like weapon mechanics, that have always left me wanting. That's why, starting a few months ago, I finally learned how to edit and create a mod for this game. This is the first in a series of Mods that will cover the majority of current weapons. Weapons currently treated: Pistol Ak 47 Hunting Rifle SMG Lever Action Rifle Magnum Over time I will cover other weapons, such as the Tactical Action Rifle, Iron Crossbow and so on ➡️ Stay Tuned for more additions! ✔️ P.S. I recommend using this mod alongside Ragnar's Mod FovChanger and set it to 60. ➡️ Here is the link of the LATEST VERSION of the Mod. 😊 SO, HERE'S WHAT'S IN THIS MOD While developing this Mod is a really exciting hobby for me, this process also takes a lot of time and considerable effort. And often between work and study I confess that sometimes it is not easy to find free time to devote myself to this. Generally I never ask for donations and the like, but if by any chance you like what I'm trying to build, Please consider maybe buying me a nice coffee! (Yes, I'm a caffeine addict 👀) You shouldn't in any chance to feel obligated to do so, but if you do decide to do it I want you to know that is comes greatly appreciated. Donation or not, I would like to thank all the people from the heart ❤️ to all that download and use the DLX - Weapons Fix Mod! I am very grateful for you following me and the development of this mod! I hope you enjoy it! My intentions are to keep developing and supporting my mod indefinitely! Because I love this game and I want to try to improve it as much as possible! UPDATE: TIME FOR THE AK 47 TO SHINE WITH THE NEW VERSION 1.1.96 UPDATE: TIME FOR THE HUNTING RIFLE TO SHINE WITH THE NEW VERSION 1.2.94 UPDATE: TIME FOR THE SMG TO SHINE WITH THE NEW VERSION 1.3.36 UPDATE: TIME FOR THE LEVER ACTION RIFLE TO SHINE WITH THE NEW VERSION 1.5.57 [ Video Coming Soon. . . ] UPDATE: THE SCOPE UPDATE & TUTORIAL ON HOW TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR SCOPE [ Video Coming Soon. . . ] ➡️ SIGHT The rear sight is shortened to the right height. The Scope, Reflex, and the Iron sight are perfectly aligned. Replaced the Iron Sight with a New One when the original does not fit the aesthetics of the gun. Added a Front/Rear Sight when the gun misses this kind of element. Rounded and Improved the back side of the gun so that this part does not lose quality when aiming. CameraOffset Z, which is basically the zoom on the weapon when aiming, is correctly set. ➡️ SCOPE OVERHAUL Completely overhauled the Scope concept, removing the old zoom method accompanied by a reticle in a completely black background. You can now use the Scope directly from the Scope Model (In a COD-BF style). Added an external slide that reflects the external environment in a dynamic way. The inner slide contains a Customizable Reticle in terms of Shape and Color, all set in a dusty Customizable\Clear Tint. Improved Textures, so that you can zoom in on the Scope model without losing texture quality. Improved Mesh, so that you can zoom in on a well rounded Scope model. The Zoom is correct: by aiming the objects will be magnified exactly twice for the 2X, four times for the 4X and eight times for the 8X Scope. Added Scratches on the right side of the Scope to help distinguish the 2X and 4X scopes. Added a Blur Background for the 4X and 8X Scope. Added a new Zoom-when-crouch feature, so when you crouch the Scope zooms, reaching the full 2x, 4x or 8x. ➡️ SCOPE CUSTOMIZATION You can now Customize the TINT of the Scope, the RETICLE COLOR and also the RETICLE SHAPE, by editing the XML file "item_modifiers.xml". You can now Customize the 2x, the 4x and the 8x Scope Separately, regarding the Scope Tint and the Scope Reticle. There are now a total of 9 different RETICLE SHAPES. So there are 4 Properties of the Scope you can modify The SCOPE TINT It's based on two other Properties Scope BASE COLOR It's the base color of the Scope Glass. There is also a Clear-No Tint version. There are 10 Colors. Scope LIGHTING There is a light that illuminates the Scope Glass. There are 9 Colors. That means there is a total of 90 possible SCOPE TINTS The SCOPE RETICLE It's based on two other Properties Scope RETICLE COLOR There are 10 Colors. Scope RETICLE SHAPE I designed a total of 9 Reticle Shapes. That means there is a total of 90 possible SCOPE RETICLES In total there are 8100 Possible Combinations for the Scope! ➡️ SCOPE CUSTOMIZATION - TUTORIAL ON HOW TU CUSTOMIZE YOUR SCOPE Up above there is also a Video Tutorial about this. You can also open the Image in Full Resolution (4K) by clicking THIS LINK It shows all the RETICLE SHAPES you can use together with the COLORS you can use in the RETICLE COLOR and the SCOPE TINT. ▶️ Open the file "DLX-Weapons_Fix\Config\item_modifiers.xml" I wrote the instructions in this file, just search for the phrase "HOW TO CUSTOMIZE" You can follow the same instructions for the 8x Scope, the 4X Scope and the 2X Scope too. There are 3 Groups (for the 2x, 4x and 8x Scope) of 6 Lines of Code each. You can setup them differently, separately. ▶️ Here is how to change the TINT of the Scope. Search for the word "scopeLight_NOTINT" and "scopeDirt_NOTINT". "NOTINT" means a CLEAR scope, without any tint on it. You can replace the word "NOTINT" with any one from the List below (be sure to read the notes next to the colors!). You can also put different colors in "scopeLight_XXX" and "scopeDirt_YYY" if you want to achieve an interesting effect. For a slight tint I suggest to put "scopeLight_NOTINT" and "scopeDirt_[SCOPE COLOR]". For a more intense tint I suggest to put both "scopeLight_[SCOPE COLOR]" and "scopeDirt_[SCOPE COLOR]" ▶️ Here is how to change the the RETICLE SHAPE and the RETICLE COLOR. Search here for the word "Reticle_". The structure of this word is: "Reticle_[ID of the RETICLE SHAPE]_[RETICLE COLOR]" ▶️ For the RETICLE SHAPE The number on "Reticle_[NUMBER]_[RETICLE COLOR]" means the ID of the RETICLE SHAPE. You can replace the [NUMBER] with any one from the list below (look for the Picture here above too). ▶️ For the RETICLE COLOR The word on "Reticle_[NUMBER]_[RETICLE COLOR]" means the RETICLE COLOR. You can replace the [RETICLE COLOR] with any one from the list below (be sure to read the notes next to the colors!). ▶️ LIST for the SCOPE TINT and RETICLE COLOR NOTINT (ONLY for ScopeLight and ScopeDirt, NOT for Reticle) BLACK (ONLY for Reticle, NOT for ScopeLight and ScopeDirt) BLUE GREEN LIGHTBLUE ORANGE PINK PURPLE RED YELLOW WHITE (NOT for ScopeLight, use NOTINT instead for a clear tint scope) ▶️ LIST for the RETICLE SHAPE On the Picutre above you can see all the scope shapes and their IDs. 01 Triangle 02 Simple Cross 03 Cross and Circle 04 Open Cross 05 German Reticle 06 Open Circle 07 RangeFinding 08 Three Marks 09 Three Marks and Circle ➡️ BULLET SHELL AND MUZZLE SMOKE, MUZZLE FIRE AND MUZZLE LIGHT Added a Bullet Shell of the right caliber that exits the weapon chamber, visible both when shooting from the hip and when aiming.

  22. Shado47-ImmersiveDays is a small modlet that changes the day display below the compass. Instead of counting up "Day 1", "Day 2", "Day 3", etc., it counts up a semi-realistic calendar: "Monday, January 1st, 2020" "Tuesday, January 2nd, 2020" "Wednesday, January 3rd, 2020" It uses 364 day years instead of realistic 365 day years so it'll divide properly by 7, which means if you're playing on regular horde night settings (every 7 days), every sunday will be horde night. The counter starts on January 1st, 2020, and after 364 days, the year will go up accordingly. This should work indefinitely. Special thanks for their help and pointers with maths and xml code to: - Alloc - Laydor - Haidr'Gna on Guppycur's Discord Server. Modlet is for Alpha 20 but should be mostly future proof.

  23. THIS MODLET HAS BEEN UPDATED. The current Version is A20.6-ZZ013 (As of 14 JAN 2022) See release notes for later versions found within this discussion. I've made a collection of original prefabs (POIs and Decorations) available as a modlet. It does not contain any custom blocks, resources, objects, etc. It depends only on the vanilla game and introduces no other requirements or dependencies. My goal is to provide semi-plain "meat and potatoes" POIs of an acceptable quality and in enough quantity to fill gaps in world generation and make a meaningful dent in player demands for variety. I hope you'll find these to be good enough to help round out the nooks and crannies of your generated worlds. The modlet is configured to plug into the Vanilla game.

  24. CCTVs: Works on A20/A19 Adds 8 panning security cameras and 2 CCTV wall monitors. Each comes in a large and small size. Monitors do not require power but must be wired, but can then be unwired. Cameras require the same wiring/unwiring if you want them to pan. The cameras will either pan or aim forward based on pressing E. I cannot make them pause in mid-pan, as I'm not using code for any of this. Monitors will rotate to the next camera image every 5 seconds unless you press E to pause it. The 5th screen shows all 4 cameras at once and you can also pause there. Monitor 1 shows cams 0-3, monitor 2 shows cams 4-7. You may use multiple copies and/or sizes of the monitors, but you can only have 1 of each camera number active. For example, if you place two camera zero's, only the last one placed will show on the monitor. Don't do this as each camera uses FPS. See it in action: Download it here: https://github.com/7D2D/A20Mods/blob/main/CCTV.zip Dedi Installation: Modlet needs to be loaded on both the dedicated server and each client. Comments: I added a bigger screen and smaller cameras. Let me know what else would be useful. Should look bright in daylight or in a darkened room now. Warning: Each camera used lowers FPS slightly so don't use more than your rig can handle 🙂 ... Be sure to have VSync "Off" as that seems to hurt FPS badly. Also, I noticed at long distances, in my case cameras on a tall pole above ground and a monitor at bedrock, the cameras occasionally lose sync and transmission is intermittent. Moving the monitor closer to the cameras resolves this. You MUST turn off Occlusion in the Video Quality settings or the camera will cull (make invisible) somethings when indoors * Credit to Eihwaz for cleaning up and improving the xml in this mod, and for providing localization for our German speaking friends.
  25. Here is a quality of life 'server side only' mod called 'Oak's Pet Animals and Guards by oak @oakraven with kind assistance from Dayhawk Mod. Thank you also to @Dre for giving it a good run through to check for functionality and potential issues. Download: https://github.com/arramus/Oaks-Pet-Animals-and-Guards-A20-2022Jan10 (These Pet Animals and Guards will not be hurt by Electric Turrets. However, just as the Junk Turret will attack regular animals, it will also attack your Pet Animals. Please do not place a Junk Turret within attack range of your Pet Animals unless you purposely want to eliminate them) Update for A20: The Farm Jeep is no longer viable because it is a scaled down version of a jeep, and when a player enters the vehicle they are permanently scaled down by the same amount (40% of original). This is cumulative for each and every time the player enters the vehicle. Again, the developer will reintroduce the Farm Jeep at the first opportunity. This mod provides: 1) 9 Pet Animals - These include Boar, Rabbit, Stag, Chicken, Pig, mini Bear, Wolf, Coyote, and Doe. (These animals show no fear when approached and will stay within their confines. It is strongly recommended to always have 3 blocks above the highest perimeter point because the animals can climb up onto objects and each other and will be over the wall before you can notice.) 7 are purchasable from the Trader's with a starting base price of 800 or found in plane supply drop crates and use the Quest system to switch to a place-able animal. These include Boar, Stag, Pig, mini Bear, Wolf, Coyote, and Doe. 2 are only found by using a Coop for the chickens or a Trap for the rabbits. The rabbit trap will also provide a small amount of seeds on the principle that they will be trapped in rabbit paws and fur. 2) 5 Animal Guards - Guard Hell Bear, Guard Hell Boar, Guard Hell Wolf, Guard Hell Lion, and Guard Rabbit. All 5 are purchasable from the Traders with a starting base price of 800. They can also be found in Air Supply Drops. 3) 12 Human Guards. All 8 can be found in Air Supply Drops. 4) Mushroom Planter that requires Mushroom Mycelium to begin the fruiting process. Here are some pictures to show you how things work: PET ANIMALS Purchasing and Supply Drops Visit the trader and check the traps and tools section. On this occasion the trader was very generous with offerings and the animal icons have a description of what animal is being offered. The pet animals have been integrated into a default group and on some occasions you will get a lot of choice and on other occasions nothing. The base price of 800 has been lowered to reflect skill and buffs. Here is how I place a Pet Boar I purchased at a later time using the Quest feature. First, perform a 'Read'. Accept to Release the Pet Boar for Placement. A Quest Started prompt will appear and it will automatically be completed. Check you inventory for a 'dog house' icon and the name of the animal available. Place the animal on ground just as you would a vehicle and stand back. Incorporating a feature found in the Dayhawk Mod (thank you), a tile will appear on the ground which in turn will spawn the animal placed. If the animal drops onto the tile, the tile will break and a cobweb will appear to finalise the process. If the animal doesn't drop onto the tile, you can always walk on it and it will break. There are occasions where you may get lucky and a second animal will spawn. You may also get unlucky and nothing spawns; however this is incredibly rare and based on what we have experienced so far, blanks are less than 1 in 50, whereas doubles, and even triples on one occasion occur 1 in 10. I expect this depends on netcoding, latency, or any other factor relating to server processes. You can either harvest the animal for meat and other resources, or simply allow it to have a sedate life of roaming. Pet animals have been integrated into default supply drop settings and will be chosen from a select list of supply drop groups. Upon finding a Supply Drop Crate, you may get lucky and find a pet animal. Or more. There are also 2 Pet Animals that cannot be purchased or found. These include the Pet Chicken and the Pet Rabbit. oakraven introduces a method using default features in a novel way as follows: a) Construct a Rabbit Cage Trap or Chicken Coop and place them. The Chicken Coops can be placed next to each other but the Rabbit Traps need some spacing. b) Make some Chicken Feed and Rabbit Feed in your campfire and take them to your Chicken Coop and Rabbit Trap respectively. In this case, right mouse click and it will change the Chicken Coop status. Once receiving Chicken Feed the Chicken Coop moves to its Nesting Stage. And finally it is time to harvest. We can always receive feathers and eggs and regularly receive Pet Chickens. Pet Chickens are placed exactly the same as other Pet Animals. The chickens are prone to resting on ledges above the ground and your imagination can take that wherever you want it to. Pet Rabbits follow the same system beyond the reward and housing. Make some Rabbit Feed. Take it to your Rabbit Trap and right click. The Rabbit Cage Trap is Baited and Set. Here's one we trapped earlier. Activate and Release as with other animals. And should you ever lose your pets and have the skill in place, crouch. GUARD ANIMALS Purchasing Just as with the Pet Animals, the Traders will stock Guard Animals. The Guard Animals can be purchased for the same price and placed exactly the same as Pet Animals using the quest system. The Guard Animals will remain passive in the spot you place them until a Zombie gets to close. The guard animals can be used to protect your Pet Animals, general base protection, or even during a Blood Moon event. An unwelcome guest. 2 Animals Guards; Guard Hell Wolf and Guard Rabbit are released using the tile placement system and very quickly recognise the threat. After opening the shutter, the zombies attempt to enter the farm compound and are met by the Guard Animals. I got lucky on this occasion and 2 Hell Wolves spawned from a single tile. The skirmish ensues. One of the Hell Wolves was overcome and is ready to be harvested. The Guard Animals that survived will see their health restored. The Guard Animals also fare well during a Blood Moon event. Four Guard Animals remained until first light. Players will receive no XP for Guard Animal kills. There are 4 additional human Guards that are currently being tweaked for a future build. There was an issue with the Trader compound causing NRE for certain classes and that needs to be tweaked to ensure they function well with the few classes that are compatible. VEHICLE - CURRENT UNAVAILABLE Farm Jeep The farm jeep is your tractor. It is pretty slow but will get you from A to B without running down your stamina. It fits the concept and can be constructed on the Workbench with less resource demand than a regular vehicle due to its limited functionality. It's just a bit of fun. And is scaled to match pathways. Carries 2 players... There will undoubtedly be updates in time, but this is a fully functional 'farming' mod and may serve you well as a break from looting, questing, and skirmishing. Installation If you've never installed a mod before it is necessary to create a mod folder in the main directory or in an area suggested by your server host if they have modified the installation. Simply make a new folder called Mods (with a capital M to reflect standard nomenclature). If you drag the mod folder directly out of the zipped file it can be placed directly into the Mods folder and the game will look in there as you launch your World. If you allow your unzip function to extract the folder, it may make another unnecessary folder and place the mod inside it. This will not be recognised by the game/server if you place it in the Mods folder like this. Please take it out of the extra folder level. The top layer will be a single folder and in the second layer you will see a ModInfo.xml file with or without additional folders depending on the mod. This will become elementary once you've launched a few mods. Does this Mod need to be installed in the server/client host? = YES Do players also need to install this Mod? = NO The magic of this mod is that is only needs to be installed in the server/person who has launched the main environment that others join. It is a technical work of art. Enjoy. 👍 Hog Riding! but that's another mod.
