Change your SPAWN location...

Recommended Posts

I've been asked to post this tutorial on spawnpoints...
Okay here it is - your guide:

Okay - so there is a tiny bit of information regarding this across multiple platforms leaving people scratching their heads in confusion and frustration. I know - I've been one of them. I recently re-learned how to do this and NOW - I will share it with YOU.

Find THIS path:
C:\Users\(YOUR NAME HERE)\AppData\Roaming\7DaysToDie\GeneratedWorlds\(MAP NAME HERE)
(to find the appdata folder - do a search and enter: %appdata%)
Find THIS file:

EDIT this file with NOTEPAD (or your preferred editor but keep it simple)
You'll see something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<spawnpoint position="1464.3,37.4,-1464.1" rotation="-7.3,359.2,0.0" />
<spawnpoint position="1480.2,37.4,-1473.9" rotation="-9.3,154.9,0.0" />
<spawnpoint position="1472.7,37.5,-1473.4" rotation="-27.9,48.1,0.0" />
<spawnpoint position="1462.3,37.6,-1477.2" rotation="-27.5,243.1,0.0" />

BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING!!! Go IN GAME. Go into DM/CM mode. Hit the map button. In the upper right you will see a light switch, hit THAT. Now click the arrows next to it until you get to BIOMES. Scroll out as far as you can. Find your preferred spawn in area. To get there on the map:

Hold the CTRL (I use the left one) and RIGHT CLICK.

You *should* pop right onto that specific point in game that you clicked on in the map.

Look at the top box, find the following:

That is the your current location.
Now - for the spawn point, which should be opened in Notepad now. Delete everything so it now looks like THIS:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<spawnpoint position="1464.3,37.4,-1464.1" rotation="-7.3,359.2,0.0" />

Enter the XYZ coords exactly as you see them in the "spawnpoint position"
Enter the ROT coords exactly as you see them in the "rotation"

Start a new game to test.
You *should* spawn exactly where you want to be according to the newly edited spawnpoint in the file...

I copy and paste that line like 5 times, slightly altering the locations so that if multiple people spawn in - we all spawn in next to each other - not on top of each other.

Hope this helps :)
