The Spencer Mansion Incident (Challenge Mode) Version 1.13c


Recommended Posts

Are you a Resident Evil fan?
Are you up for a challenge?

 

 

Welcome to Resident Evil, where it all began!

I started building the Spencer Mansion back in August 2017 (Alpha 16.2), I've been working on this passion project of mine for 3 and a half years now. I am very pleased with the final build and would love to share it with the 7 Days to Die community, so that you may all enjoy a very unique 7 Days experience.

This is a replica of the Spencer Mansion as close to a 1:1 scale within the limitations of the game, using only vanilla assets.

The goal of the challenge is to build a Gyrocopter and use it to fly to the trader, talking to the trader will complete the challenge.

But of course there are rules!

Any of the following will automatically lose the challenge:
(1) Dying.
(2) Going outside the boundary of the mansion on foot. (there's a visible boundary don't worry, and there's nothing out there anyway)
(3) Using any console commands. (only exception is for performance improvements)
(4) Editing any of the files.

(5) Using any modlets. (with the exception of localization)
(6) Playing with any amount of day time period.

(7) Playing with more than 125% XP and/or more than 134% Loot.


How to install (If not using Mod Launcher):

(1) Make a fresh copy of the vanilla game folder (A19.3 or A19.4), rename the copy to something like '7 Days to Die Spencer Mansion Incident'.
(2) Extract the Data and Mods folders to the new copy you've just created. Example location    C:\Steam Games\Survival\7 Days To Die Spencer Mansion Incident

 


PLEASE READ: When playing the mod for the first time or when playing it again after playing another mod/vanilla, you'll have to change all of the settings at least once so the game recognizes the new settings. If you don't, you could be playing with 200% Loot, 300% XP, et cetera, unintentionally. More importantly, you want to avoid playing with any day time. You WILL NOT have a good time if you have day time. So be sure to change your settings before playing. When making a game, be sure to select 'Spencer Mansion Incident' as your world name.

 



Optional extra challenges for those super fans: (Feel free to record your gameplay for boasting)
(1) Knife Only: Finish the game with only using either the Survival Knife or Combat Knife. Machete doesn't count.
(2) Untouchable: Finish the game without ever taking any damage from any sources.
(3) Speed Run: Finish the game as fast as possible. (Some potential competition for people)
(4) Poisoned: Upon starting a new game, use the console command "buff buffpoisoned" (without quotations, this is an exemption to the console command rule) and finish the game without ever curing your poison.

Looks fun,  thank you for creating this.

One of the rules is that you can't have any modlets installed or edit the xml.  This would mean that it can only be played in English.  It looks like a fun challenge, so it would be nice if it could be played in other languages. 

I do Japanese localization for many mods by making a simple localization modlet,  that only changes the Japanese text in that mod.  In this case, it sounds like you would fail the challenge if I did that.  

If I translate all the altered lines in the localization xml,  would you be willing to add them?  Either that, or you could allow the JP localization modlet to be installed without having to worry about losing the challenge?

Thank you.

That would be wonderful if you did that for me, the only file I think would be fair to edit is the localization since it is purely text only.

I have one request, I see that you've added some quests with a new category, "Information".
Would it be possible to change the property names,  "name" to "name_key",  "subtitle" to "subtitle_key",  and "description" to "description_key"?  So that I could translate those too?  There's a lot of useful info there.

I'd be happy to. I can change it and give you the quest file in a message if you need it?

Here are the links to the archives of some streamers who tried out this mod yesterday.  They and their viewers were all very impressed by how well you've recreated the original.  I really enjoyed watching them solve puzzles and fight with limited resources.

I noticed that you have the mod uploaded directly to this forum, and not elsewhere.  It may be good to have a separate link with it uploaded somewhere else,   so that people who don't have a forum account,  or isn't signed in can download it from here as well.  At the moment,  they are not coming here,  but going to the 7 days to die mods site to download it from there,  because they get an error when they try to download it from here.  It's no problem if you don't mind that though.

 

This is Rokugensan.  He finished this stream after finding all the masks.  He'll be continuing from there next stream.  His viewers all had a great time too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoaCw83Qnb0

 

This is ryo1.  He seemed to love your mod so much that he streamed over 7 hours straight.  I fell asleep 3 hours in,  so I don't know how far he got,  but he was having a blast as far as I saw.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uT7qaS-UP7E

 

This is PMM.  He finished this stream after finding 3 of the masks.  His health was low most of the time,  it was exciting watching it.  He's a huge Resident Evil fan,  so he was excited the whole time he was playing.  He's planning to stream again tonight.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXUDqd6gqJw

 

I saw a couple more streamers who played last night,  but I'm not friends with them,  so I won't post their links.  I also saw tweets of people excitedly playing it.  It seems you've succeeded in making 7 Days very fun and challenging for a lot of people.  Thank you😄

 

Oh,  and I noticed some typos I made,  so I'll send you a fixed version after I watch people finish the challenge,  and I fix my mistakes😅

Please note: To ensure your game is set to night time, change the Daylight Length setting at least once.

How should the setting be for this? Don't quite understand this part. Did everything else and it loads but Daylight length is still 18 hours.

I don't even get that setting, it shows as 60 so something is off in the way I installed it. Redoing it fresh now.

That's the 24 hour cycle setting, you want the one below it, daylight length.

Well, if anyone's interested in watching an English speaking streamer with potato abilities, and who's never played Resident Evil before (!), I'm currently mid to late challenge in my playthrough, about to get on to phase two of the challenge (surviving long enough!). If you're interested in watching, here's the link:

Hi,Dan

 

Thanks for making a great mod.
I've got a bug in the underground labs that makes it impossible to progress.
In the door that opens with the jail key.
When I use the key, the key disappears, but the door doesn't open.
I couldn't pick up the key item at the end of the door, so I couldn't proceed.
Please check it out if you want.
