Latest Version

 

5.0.3 for A20b233 Experimental

 

 

I have released a very very early version of Scavengers of the Living Dead for you guys to try out. Feedback etc is more than invited as we embark on a companion mod to Ravenhearst.

 

This mod has it's own Discord which can be found here https://discord.gg/XWphRtm

 

That is also where all discussion and updates will be found.

 

Scavengers is our Romero Mod that has been in development in one form or another since A16. We have released twice, and now we are releasing on 19 before A20 so we can establish it and develop it further on A20. Overhauled crafting, a scavenger based play style, tons of zeds, headshots only, no blood moon and much much more either already available or planned. Come be part of the development. Now available on the mod launcher! 

 

Here is a link to our old archived thread that is locked

 

https://forums.7daystodie.com/forum/-7-days-to-die-pc/game-modification/mods/164590-scavengers-of-the-living-dead

 

And our old A16 thread for our initial release that will show pics and details of what I wanted this mod to look like before all the removals post A16

 

 

 

Features of Scavengers


-Traditional Zombies. Walk Only, Headshot Only, No Ferals or Demos etc, no climbing or jumping, realistic damage. Danger comes in numbers.
-Fewer resources from everything
-Increased ingredient requirements on recipes
-Perks are available for now but will soon be removed
-LBD system where stats increase with tool and weapon usage not perks
-Reduced loot
-Wilderness style maps
-NO traders or quests. Taking it back to the old fashioned blood sweat and tears of finding stuff.
-NO technology like turrets gyrocopter etc. This is not Fallout
-Traditional farming returns. No planters
-Increased crafting timers where they make sense
-EVERY container can be looted. No more open and closed. Now you must go through an entire poi and search it
-Costs of repairing and upgrading increased (soon to be replaced by special kits)
-All items now break twice as fast.
-Removed surface ores
-Ore traces are back in boulders.
-Zombies hit HARD! Infection chance increased
-Along with that new system come a host of changes like 3 mod slots ONLY, no more recipe unlocks via perks you MUST find schematics and more.
-Workbenches and stations are no longer crated from normal parts, but from special station specific parts wrenched from the specific workstation or found in loot. These parts are used to craft the proper bench.
-NO working benches in the world. Harvest them to build your own.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scavengers of the Living Dead is first and foremost a tribute to the traditional zombie movie and ideas seen by pioneer George A. Romero and his "Dead" movies, with a dash of Walking Dead.

 

You wont see mutant zombies, bullet sponges or anything else you would not expect to see in that universe. 

 

While being a tribute to those movies it is also a venture into hardcore survival. With an emphasis on realism and struggle, you will find yourself at many a disadvantage that you need to overcome, split decisions you need to make for your future and horror around every corner and in every nook and cranny.

 

Please keep in mind this mod is not finished nor is it even close to it. Play at your own risk. Mechanics are undeveloped, things are not balanced fully and a lot will change over time. This is your opportunity to watch a mod like Ravenhearst take shape, and to be part of that shape.



Features

Some are planned and some are not implemented yet

 

Progressive Tools and Weapons
Each weapon and tool offers benefits and each tier has better stats. For example a stone axe only harvests 50 percent of wood, an iron will harvest 100 percent of wood and also give 50 percent of Oak. Same for pickaxes and tiers of ores. Each pickaxe unlocks new ores and harvests.

 

Perks Be Gone
Controversial but by the time we get to release there will be no points and no perks. You get better by doing. You learn recipes by finding, you increase stats by levelling your player. Simple as it should be.

 

They Are Coming To Get You Barbara
Zombies. Everywhere. Non stop. Modified behavior, increased sight, headshot multipliers that will have you saving every bullet and using those bats, no climbers or jumpers. Traditional and EVERYWHERE.

Complex Recipes
Almost every recipe in game has had their ingredients adjusted and increased. The idea is to struggle not to have a box full of mech parts. So you will need to scavenge and harvest often. Recipes are also more realistic. Many new resources have been added.

 

Learn a New Way
The opening quest is gone. Punching damages you. You have ZERO backpack slots. Starting out has never been harder so you must play smart, react accordingly and focus on important tasks. This is a slow build and the beginning thrusts you deep into hell with no apologies.

 

Welcome to Traiter Joels
Yeah, theyre gone. Zombies ate them so.

 

Realistic Farming
Farm plots are removed. Now you can till ground but you will need water. Zombies can also trample your crops and destroy them! You will need a hoe to pick up your seeds, and to harvest any wild crops in the world. Any other tool and you get nothing.

 

Backpacks
As said you start with zero slots. There are tiers of backpacks you can find schematics for, clothing is also important. Shirts and pants have pockets, as do jackets and coats and they help give you space.

 

Mods and Tech
Junk turrets are stronger than ever...... HAHA just kidding, all tech like bots have been removed completely. The focus will be on traps. Mods can not be crafted you must find them in loot.

 

Perk Books
Gone.

Blood Moons
They don't exist. Because come on. Instead settings dictate you get a small blood moon randomly every 1-4 days. These hordes are specifically balanced for this mod. No spiders or demos and they are a bit smaller but increase as time goes on. They simulate a siege on your home. This will be the main base of your challenge. Don't be turned off by this idea. They will be balanced so you can handle them with some elbow work

 

No 2 Shapes Are Alike
Gone are the variant blocks. All shapes and blocks must be crafted at the appropriate stations to build because this is how it was for 16 alphas and it presented a challenge to pre planning.

 

Quality
Quality tiers are 1-6 but with a twist. Everytime you repair it drops a tier, until it breaks so no tool or weapon is forever. This promotes constant crafting and scavenging for supplies.

 

Walker Simulation
With the help of the Walker Sim, zombie behavior is now tailored to wander to POIs and sources of noise. Ignore the zombies and eventually every zombie on the map will make their way to you so thinning out the herd is a must. Gunshots etc will attract the most attention.

Good Day JaxTeller

 

Is this the same or similar to the Romero Mod that KhainesGB puts out? 

 

And are traders unprotected? So we have to protect. Just wondering

Thank you and Take Care ... the Old Gamer .. 😌

This actually predates Romero Mod by about 2 years and has been releasing since Alpha 16.

 

I am VERY proud of what we did in A16 but so much of what made Scavengers possible is gone now. Have a look at our original post to see what we are about (WITH PHOTOS!! lol)

 

 

 

It is its own overhaul. But unfinished for A20. I am actually releasing an update for it today that will bring back Quality and Degradation. So consider this a work in progress to bring it back to its former glory.

Thank You JaxTeller

As with most overhaul Mods ... I will wait for A-20 to go Stable before diving into the mod.

For now ... I will stay with the bits and pieces type mods.

 

Take Care and Have a Merry Christmas 🎄 ... the Old Gamer .. 😌 

Ill even suggest you wait too as the latest update broke it lol plus it will be way more stable by the time they go stable too :) thank you for checking it out though and hope when you get a chance to try it out you enjoy it.

Very nice mod, i really like it, with only one exception: Quality degradation on repair. Weapons do not degrade if you maintain them properly, they will last in perfect shape for many many years if you take care of them, so this is the only thing in the mod that i do not like, But still very nice. Anyway i hope you could consider adding that as optional, or making weapons degrade only if they go to 0% condition before repairing. Just a humble suggestion.

Thank you :)
