Custom Icon Help


Recommended Posts

is there a certain format the PNGs have to be?

I am trying to make custom icons for new Arrows I created and my images wont load into the game, everything else works except my custom icon.


Just curious on why my Icons wont load into the game.

I am not an expert, sure that somebody sooner responds, but something that I have seen when putting the huds for example is the address in the .xml file, the place where it is stored and that load the line of where the route is.


I hope that's just it.

Icons should be placed in Mods folder.


Its structure is......

7 days to die
┗ Mods
   ┗ <your mod name here>
          ┗<place all icons here>


Use this for ModInfo.xml


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
	<Name value="mod name here" />
	<Description value="description here" />
	<Author value="your name here" />
	<Version value="0.0.0" />
	<Website value="" />

This is still not working for me - can someone take a look and make any corrections for me thanks

I have created a folder called Mods within my Config folder. inside "Mods" i created a folder called ItemIconTest. Inside

"ItemIconTest" folder is another folder called ItemIcons and a file called ModInfo. Inside ItemIcons i have saved a picture which is sized 116*80. The picture is a PNG file called Juice.


ModInfo document reads


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>



<Name value="Juice" />

<Description value="mmm delicious Juice" />

<Author value="Kevin" />

<Version value="A16.4" />

<Website value="" />







<item id="1514" name="Juice">
