// Greetings, fellow survivors!

 

 

Welcome to the new and improved SMXhud modlet for 7 Days to Die - Alpha 18. This version has undergone a great deal of improvements in light of the many new features that Alpha 18 brought to the table. See the changelog below for detailed information.

// SMXhud //

 

SMXhud is SMX as you know it from Alpha 16 first remade into a modlet and tweaked for Alpha 17 and now further enhanced for Alpha 18. The purpose of SMXhud is to take the in-game HUD into a more horror like and gritty art style all while trying to stay as informative as possible while not being intrusive on your gameplay.

// Install and remove

 

  • Download the modlet from one of the locations below.
  • Decompress the modlet using WinRAR or a compatible archiver.
  • Copy or move the Mods folder into your 7 Days to Die installation folder.
  • Verify the install by checking that the ModInfo.xml file is located in this hierarchy: "\Mods\SMXhud\ModInfo.xml"
  • Remove by deleting the SMXhud folder inside the Mods folder.

// The Downloads

 

SMXhud can be downloaded from three sources. NexusMods, which is my main distribution platform. Everything I distribute launch here first. Github, which is my mirror of choice for those that cannot or will not use NexusMods. SphereII's Mod Launcher, an easy to use mod and modlet installer for 7 Days to Die.

 

 

 

 

// NexusMods

 

 

// Github

 

 

// SphereII's Mod Launcher

 

 

// The Optionals

 

SMXhudTHB is easiest to install from SphereII's Mod Launcher. This due to its dependency on a patchscript to remove the God Mode lock that the bar is hidden behind. It can of course be installed manually. To do so, download it from the github link below, but you will then have to download and install the 0-SphereIICore modlet, the DMT tool and patch the game engine manually...trust me, use the Mod Launcher!
 
 
!!WARNING!!
- Installing this makes the game non EAC friendly, and will render you unable to play on EAC enabled servers. You will also need to enter the launcher and turn off EAC or you will just be met by a black screen when starting the game.

// Support SMX Development

 

All SMX branded mods and/or modlets will forever be free of charge and available for everyone to download and enjoy. I do however from time to time get questions from users on how to donate and support the SMX development. The purpose of this link is nothing more than a way for me to cater to those that want to make a donation. You should under no circumstance feel obligated to do so, but if you decide to do it I want you to know that is comes greatly appreciated.
 
Donation or not I would like to extend a thank you to all that download and use the different SMX mods, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do making them.
 
If you feel like making a donation to support the development of the SMX branded modifications, click the image below.

Every time there is an update from 7D2D in Steam do I have to reinstall this modlet?

 

If there is a change to the files I modify it is advised to update. But I usually check and confirm here on updates if I get the chance.

Stupid question... what are the three icons in the top left. I know one is elevation, one is outside temp? what's the other?

 

There are no stupid questions :)

 

From left to right those are Elevation, Temperature (Environment) and Temperature (Feels like).

 

So the one with the coat for an Icon is how the temperature feels to the player after different modifiers are in place, like clothing, clothing mods, food etc.

Is there cheese in a cheeseburger?

 

 

And to be on topic: Woo! Love this UI mod. It makes surviving so much more manageable

Yes, when used on a server this mod has to be on both server and client.

 

The reason for this is that to get this level of customization from the vanilla experience I have to use custom made assets and as such those assets are not present in the vanilla asset files and if the client doesn't have them installed the game won't find them as the server only sends the information about where they should exist and not the assets themselves.

Unless I am blind, which is fully possible :) , I don't see anything about you updating the SMXhudBBM. Are you planning to update that? Or should it work as is?

Hi,

 

No, no blindness involved. This is correct, I have not updated SMXhudBBM and the reason for that is that I have moved the BBM part over to SMXui, which I am currently developing. SMXhudBBM has been reported to work though, even if I have not even tested to see that for myself.

 

If all else fails there are other BBM mods and modlet out there that will work fine with SMXhud as it doesn't touch the backpack.

 

When it comes to SMXui I have been saying in a few days for a while now, and at this point I am not gonna say anything as it takes more time than I thought to clean it up for shipping. I am working as fast as I can and it will be ready soon :)

 

...and to those that wait...a small teaser...

@Sirillion Hello, i think there's a bug. I cannot choose the "Drop nothing on dead" option

 

Yes, I am aware. There is a bug in the SMXmenu modlet, I will push an update a bit later this evening.

I use the bigger backpack 60 slot, not otger hud. And this hud. Works fine!

 

Glad to hear it, I am currently working on the last few “must add” window for SMXui, the bbm being one of them, got that completed yesterday. I reduced it a bit though, due to UI real estate, it is now 63 slots. I could add the 72 slot version as an option still but it would mean that the windows “flow” outside the visual area from time to time.

Using it. The transparent toolbelt takes some getting used to but a few hours in and it's all good. :)

Glad to hear it. The transparent tool belt have been a thing for SMX since the beginning, this changes soon. From the next version the tool belt will have the same backdrop as the upcoming SMXui inventory and other slots have.

sorry for the silly question but where is the xp bar? or is it invisible? thanks.

 

The XP bar is in the upper left corner. It is the white circle that surrounds the level number.
