Twas the night before Blood moon!
Twas the night before Blood moon, when all through the base. Not a walker was scratching, a weak wooden frame. The spike traps I set on the perimeter with care, In hopes that it kept the zombies out there.
The Survivors were nestled in the base by their beds, While visions of Minibikes danced in their heads. My Buddy clutched his ‘Bone Shiv, and I my Wood Club, As we just settled down for some good Shamway grub.
When out in the Wasteland there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the campfire to see what was the matter. Away to the guard tower I flew like a flash, I equipped my best weapon and opened the hatch.
The Blood moon shined red on the barbed wire below. As I waited in fear for my walking dead foes. When, what through the thick dark night fog should appear, But a miniature screamer and 8 dogs to the rear.
With a huge running horde, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment this game is so sick. More rapid than eagles from the wasteland they came, The Screamer she shouted as if to call them by name!
“Now Spiders! Now, Ferals! Now Corpses and Crawlers! On, Fat Cop! On, Nurse! On Cadavers and Maulers! To the top of the base! To the top of the wall! Now slash away! Thrash away! And devour them all!”
As the base walls shook and the particles would fly, They got through the spikes and the wire in no time. So up to the Base-top the Survivors we flew, With a turd in my pocket, and some Goldenrod too.
And then, a big Screeching, I heard on the roof A pack of Spiders had got up from the stoop. As I drew my Club, and was turning around, Down through the hatch came a Man with a bound.
He was dressed all in hide and leather and scrap, And armed to the teeth, ready to kick ass. A bundle of guns he had flung on his back, And he looked like Rick Grimes but with a bigger mustache.
His eyes—how they pierced! His stare was so scary! I thought he might kill me or quote Dirty Harry! He frowned and shushed me as he pointed due East, And his beard was so thick that he must be part beast.
He readied his Shotty as he gritted his teeth, With a ten gallon hat on his head like a wreath. He had a mean face and to the zombies was smelly, They followed him close like their very own deli!
He was fast, he was tough, the Duke would be proud, And I laughed when I saw him, take care of the hounds! With spit in his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled with lead all the zeds that would lurk. And laying his finger on his trigger of steel. He killed one last Zed and sat down for a meal.
He looked at me close as he downed his meat stew. You look new here he said and you haven’t a clue. I will leave you now with this one piece of advice. Be ready for the Blood moon its one hell of a fight!
We are proud to announce that the ‘Alpha 20 Streamer Weekend’ is finally here. We have partnered with over 200 streamers from 30 countries.

TFP is extremely excited for this release. It’s by far the biggest Alpha ever and is jam packed with new content, bug fixes, optimizations, and game balancing. Read on for more information!
Random World Generation
TFP is very proud and excited to bring a brand new Random World Generation System to Alpha 20. The System has been re-engineered from the ground up with a focus on generation speed, flexibility, quality visuals, believability, replay-ability, POI dispersion, Trader positions, and so much more. We took a more content-driven approach for POI’s, City Tiles, and Stamps. Cities and roads are much more believable and detailed. Wilderness paths connect in a believable way to POI’s. There are really too many changes to list but here are some of the main features included:
New Districts which includes downtown, industrial, commercial, residential, rural, country town, wilderness, and country residential
New RWG Tiles support city and town construction which includes tile variants of: Intersection, straight, corner, caps and T-sections with nearly 50 unique tiles.
New stamps to improve and create unique terrain for every biome
New stamps to support rivers and canyons
New faster RWG creation supports 6k, 8k and 10k maps
New town types: City, Town, Country Town and Ghost town. Custom townships can also be added.
New Part Spawn Markers which add unique Prefab possibilities to tiles and POI’s
New Road exit markers that align POI driveways to the end of roads
POI distribution has been improved to better use the over 550 unique POI’s and nearly 50 city tiles that the game has to offer for nearly infinite replay value
POI’s except for wilderness have all been redone to to improve how they work with the new city tile system. Sizes include:
Small 25 X 25 meters
Medium 42 X 42 meters
Large 60 x 60 meters
Extra large 100 x 100 sizes
POI placement has been improved to account for each POI’s overall performance cost and as a result, very heavy POI’s will not be placed near each other which helps keep the game running better.
3 Brand new Pre-generated maps will be offered.
XML support for modding in your own tiles, parts, unique town types, and more see Server.XML and Modding section below for more detail.
New Random Gen Preview tool mix options to support tweaking custom maps to your liking changing many things including:
Frequency of Towns
Frequency of Wilderness POI’s
Frequency of Rivers, Craters, Cracks, and Lakes
Frequency of Plains, Hills, and Mountains
Global amount of Randomness
The TFP Level team doubled in size by late 2020. That paired with many improvements to the proprietary level tools, shape tools, and world tools have helped the POI team generate an enormous amount of new and updated content for Alpha 20.
Here are just a few of the great things coming to Alpha 20:
Over 175 Brand new explorable POI’s
Over 25 reimagined old POI’s
Over 550 Explorable locations
Many Tier 3 and 4s have been added with some new and updated tier 5s
Alpha 20 POI Tier breakdown includes:
Tier 5 POI’s – 7
Tier 4 POI’s – 29
Tier 3 POI’s – 52
Tier 2 POI’s – 102
Tier 1 and Remnant POI’s – 360
There are over 200 new and overhauled POI’s, too many to mention but some notable larger POI’s include:
Navezgane has gotten a little love with some new POI’s added. More to come in Alpha 21
Diersville, Departure, Gravestowne, and Perishton Updates.
New suburban, rural and wilderness communities were added.
Road and Terrain Updates.
Our character team has been busy overhauling and re-imagining all of the zombies and NPCs in HD. They may look better but they have less draw calls and are slightly better in performance due to a new physically based rendering shader that utilizes packed textures and improved emissive rendering. There are also some brand new zombies never yet seen before.
Nearly 25 new HD characters have been completed for Alpha 20 in fact all non player characters and enemies are now HD. There are also new improved character shaders for zombies, NPC’s, radiated zombies and burnt zombies. The New HD zombies include:
New HD Wight Zombie
New HD Thug Zombie
New HD Tom Clarke Zombie
New HD Worker Zombie
New HD Mechanic Zombie
New HD Hazmat Zombie
New HD Dog Zombie
New HD Biker Zombie
New HD Spider Zombie

New HD Trader Hugh
New HD Trader Bob
Alpha 20 introduces a new line of pipe weapons along with an overhaul of several current weapons for a total of 6 new weapons and 13 upgraded HD remakes to further the look and feel of an apocalyptic environment.
Pipe weapons are new early-game weapons easily crafted in your backpack, and only require basic ingredients like short iron pipes, wood, glue, and leather. Players will now have access to a Pipe Baton, Pipe Pistol, Pipe Shotgun, Pipe Rifle, and a Pipe Machine gun in earlier gameplay to be in tune with the new loot and level balancing. These weapons all have custom sounds and animations with variable mod slots similar to existing in-game weapons. Pipe weapons are easily repaired with short iron pipes. As part of weapon cleanup, the Blunderbuss was removed and replaced with the new Pipe Shotgun.
A new Lever Action Rifle was added to round out and complete the existing rifle tier. The Lever Action Rifle’s firing speed and range make it a great gun for outdoor survival. This rifle also uses 7.62 mm rounds and has variable mod slots similar to existing in-game weapons.
Existing weapon overhauls include new models, textures, and/or sounds for already favorite items like the AK-47, SMG, M60, .44 Magnum, Hunting Rifle, and the Rocket Launcher. These texture and model upgrades add some nice polish and align with the look and feel of other art upgrades throughout the game. In addition to model and texture updates, the Bows, Crossbows, and Compound Bow all received a damage increase. Arrow models received an update to complete the new look and feel of the bows.
Shape and Creative Menus
Building blocks have received a major overhaul. For starters, there are now over 1300 unique shapes to select from for every craftable material. Players can now craft 5 basic material helper blocks which are:
Frames (OSB/Weak Wood texture), Wood, Cobblestone, Concrete and Steel.
After crafting, equip them to the toolbelt and then use the radial menu (or shortcut keys Shift+R) to open the shape selection screen. This screen shows several shape categories that can then narrow down the search:
For you modders out there, the shape menu brings with it an easier way to add new shapes to the game as you no longer have to separately define each shape with each material. Simply add the new shape definitions to shapes.xml and let the game fill in the materials for that shape at runtime. The new shapes are then automatically added to the material shape helpers in game. This feature also greatly reduces the amount of crafting recipes needed.
The creative menu has also been overhauled with a new category system. Categories have been moved and expanded to the left hand side of the window. Pick a Main Category in the left column and then a Secondary Category in the right column.
Placing blocks has had several changes. The block preview now animates smoothly through the world and the shading is improved. The preview will also change color to indicate the effect of adding the block. Colors Include:
Yellow – The block is stable. As the block becomes more yellow it means it is getting less stable
Red – Placing the block would cause some type of collapse. Adding blocks to reinforce other parts of the structure may allow this block to then be placed without collapse
Pink – Placing would cause this block to fall as it does not have sufficient support
Robotic Drone Companion
The new Robotic Drone is a companion that gives the player extra storage and some enhanced end game features. The drones abilities can be augmented and enhanced by the player’s intellect, but players can still acquire and use a Drone without perking into it.
The Robotic drone is modded in the player’s inventory. Dyes are added to the cosmetic slot and mods to the modifier slot(s).
Some of the Additional Mods and Enhancements to the Drone include:
Robotic Drone Armor Plating Mod – Increases the Drones Defenses
Robotic Drone Cargo Mod -Increases the Drones carrying capacity
Robotic Drone Medic Mod – Gives the Drone the ability to heal the player
Robotic Drone Moral Booster Mod – Player Stamina regen is increased by 10% when near the Drone
Robotic Drone Headlamp Mod – Gives the Drone a headlight
We have added a brand new Dynamic Imposter System to the game which renders changes to Distant chunk POI meshes caused by players or zombies. Changes such as destroying a building, building your own base or adding to or modifying an existing building can now be appropriately displayed by the Dynamic Imposter System. Updated imposter meshes are automatically shared with new players who join the game.
What does this mean for players? With this option turned on you can renovate existing POI’s, fortify a whole town or build a castle on a hill top and see the changes from anywhere in the world.
Depending on PC strength we have several game option settings that can be edited in serverconfig.xml
Setting to true will enable the system
Setting to true will make the system only active in player Land Claimed areas
Dynamic Mesh Land Claim Base chunk radius size
How many items can be processed concurrently, higher values use more RAM
Big Thanks to Danny Richardson from the 7 Days to Die modding community for working with TFP on this awesome new system!
The Environment Art and Shader Team have been improving much of the rendering tech and creating hundreds of new PBR environment models to enhance the world, POI’s and overall game immersion. Improvements include:
Terrain Shader – Updated for better quality and performance including improved roughness and specular shading modifications
Foliage Shader – Updated for improved rendering effects like subsurface scattering in addition to physically based rendering and packed textures for performance
Entity Tint Shader – This shader provides support for tinted color variations on models in addition to improving performance due to packed textures
New Terrain Textures
New Block Textures
Lighting and Sky Improvements
Meshes – Short plant meshes, like grass and cotton, have been greatly improved to generate more detail and much more variety of shapes with less mirroring. Mesh complexity now uses the grass quality setting which allows for less detail on lower end computers
Biomes – Plant distribution has been improved and the forest has a new short grass sub biome. Grass placement on slopes has been improved as well
Trees – Trees now have a root ball to seal holes at the base of the trunk
Clouds – Improved blending of cloud layers and we now can keep cross blends for much more variety and to better match the weather system
Lightning – Adjusted values, added a cloud area brightening effect and fixed a bug with the world not being lit
Wind – The weather system’s wind speed now changes the speed of plants blowing in the wind and we added wind gusts
Along with all of the new POI’s of alpha 20, there is plenty of new content to add to the visual immersion of the game.
Cities are detailed to a whole new level, with props such as newspaper stands, mailboxes, street lights, parking meters, planters, operational manhole covers, traffic signals, new street signs as well as business signs, ATM’s, Etc.
Industrial locations are enhanced by new assets like new conveyor belt systems, construction site material stacks. Tarp fencing, etc. All new functioning and destructible doors such as cellar doors and shutters.
More immersive destruction for the world you’ve come to love with a variety of new rubble piles.
A new Mesh tinting system and shader bring you more color variations of new art content to further customize your creations.
Hundreds of new and updated PBR meshes have been added to the game overall.
Questing improvements have been made all over the world in 7 Days To Die. Starter quests now have helpful on screen icons to show you where to find the required items. We’ve decided to retire the challenge notes to allow focus on new quest types. Buried Supplies have been updated to increase the challenge. We’ve also added a new tier 3 version of this quest type. Trader to Trader progression has changed. Each trader now has their own set of tiered quests that must be completed. Players can now navigate between those tiers when selecting a quest from the trader.
We’ve also added a new quest type, Restore Power. Restore Power quests are activated at night and require the player to re-establish power to the locations. Find the generators inside and activate them. Be careful as the generators may alert nearby zombies.
The AI and spawning of enemies have gotten some great improvements including:
Biome Spawning – Zombie spawning in biomes is now based on the types of buildings in the area, so industrial, commercial and downtown areas are more populated. These areas also spawn more challenging enemies in the harder biomes
Ducking – Zombies can now duck down to help them not get stuck on obstacles
Obstacle Attacks – Zombies now stand more reliably at the point of attack without sliding around
Head Tracking – Added more variety with when and where they look
Burst Attack – Added a new AOE burst attack, which is used by the new mutant zombie
Feral Sense Game Option
With standard settings Zombies have limited distances that they can hear and see you. The feral sense option allows you to greatly increase their hearing and seeing, which makes the game more challenging. This also makes the world seem more populated as zombies you may not have noticed will find you. Features include:
Increases the range that all types of zombies can hear and see the player by over double the normal amounts
Stealth still works, the zombies will just detect you more easily
Game options are Off, Day, Night, All (Day and Night)
We have added mods, coloring and additional improvements and bug fixes to Vehicles. Mods improve different aspects of your vehicle like using less fuel. Any of the dyes you get during gameplay can be added to the cosmetic slot to tint the vehicle’s color.
Expanded Seating – Allows 2 riders on the minibike or motorcycle and 4 on the 4×4
Fuel Saver – Your engine uses less gas
Reserve Fuel Tank – Increases tank capacity
Off Road Headlights – Brighter lights
Super Charger – Increases acceleration
Colors – You can place dyes in the cosmetic slot to colorize parts of each vehicle
Tracking – Improved camera tracking and fixed some popping issues
Zoom – Camera can now be zoomed in and out using the mouse wheel or gamepad
Fixes – Vehicle duplication or getting relocated to a new position in the world has been addressed along with better out of bounds checks
Loot Progression has been separated from Game Stage with its own Loot Stage system. Players will increase their loot stage similar to their game stage, but there are many bonuses that can add to it. The biome the player is in, the POI the player is looting, and even the container they are looking at can have a loot stage bonus. Loot stage will then boost the quality and/or the tier of items found. For example, adventurous players that explore the more difficult biomes and POI’s will find iron tools or advanced weapons a little faster than those that stay in the pine forest.
When it comes to biome bonuses, the progression is as follows:
Pine Forest, Desert, Snow, and then Wasteland
(NOTE: Burnt Forest in Navezgane is the same as the Desert)
Loot has been adjusted to provide early game weapons and tools a chance to shine. This grants the player time to find and use a higher quality item before finding the next tier. Books have also been realigned to deliver players books like Spear Hunter and Archery earlier for the most benefit. Food, Drink, Medical, and Ammo Supplies have been adjusted to keep players on the hunt for more in places you would expect to find them. To bring back the fear of infection, items that cure it have been greatly reduced.
There are also 5 new Tiered Loot chests that are placed according to the POI Tiers
For the Dynamic music system In previous Alphas, our goal was to maximize the uniqueness of content by leveraging the power of combinations. Working around a theme, we could build complex musical compositions by layering loops on and pulling them off. These layers function as individual instruments do in standard compositions. By defining how a given layer would be used in a given configuration, and by sorting a number of interchangeable loops into these layers, we were able to get a very high number of unique combinations across all of our configurations.
While this schema allows for a high degree of versatility in the way of content, it is not reactive to gameplay on the content level. That is where our new “vertical dynamism” comes into play.
As in previous Alphas, we have teamed up with Native Darkness Productions to bring this new dynamic to our music. This time we have turned our focus to our game’s core mechanic; The Bloodmoon Horde. Giving this feature the attention it deserves, we have created a theme just for Bloodmoon. There is an ebb and flow to the intensity of combat during Bloodmoon, and we have revamped our threat level system to tap into it. Our new theme accounts for this, and the music now reacts in real-time to the intensity of Combat as if a conductor is watching your every move. The lows and highs of The Blood Moon Horde are now reflected in the music, significantly improving the immersion factor of our core mechanic.
New Bloodmoon Music with threat-responsive layering system
Improved layering with added complexity for layered tracks
Over 6.5 million combinations of tracks across all configurations
New Threat-Responsive Ambient Audio System
The game audio keeps improving and the audio team has kept up with the needs creating new custom sounds for all the new content including:
Custom sounds for all new pipe weapons
New Door Sounds
New game vent activation sounds (keys, buttons, etc.)
Restore power quest sounds
Custom sounds for new loot chests
The world’s weather system continues to improve with weather now being more distinctive and varying. Improvements include:
Randomness – Improved calculations and shorter durations, so less likely to get stuck with the same weather
Weather groups – Added grouping of values like fog, clouds, and precipitation to allow distinctive types of weather like foggy, raining, snowing or storming. Each biome now uses these groups for their own weather
Several quality settings have been changed to better control the game’s rendering. Auto detection was added, which looks at your GPU to determine what quality preset seems best for your computer. The first time A20 is run it will reset the video options and a preset will be chosen. New Options Include:
Anti-Aliasing – Temporal (TAA) is an added choice. It is an advanced rendering technique that smooths edges based on motion
AA Sharpening – With TAA on, you can use the sharpening option to increase how strong edges look in the game
The Animation Team has been busy improving the overall animation quality of the game. Some of the animation improvements that have gone into Alpha 20 Include:
Overall improvement of First and Third person Weapon hold, attack, power attack and idle animations
Overall improvement of First and Third person Tool hold, attack, power attack and idle animations
Better 3rd person blending of upper and lower body while walking, running, strafing and general movement while carrying weapons
New Zombie dog animations
New Jiggle Tech adds dynamic movement based motion for the following Zombies and Parts:
Bloated Tourist – Stomach and overall body fat
Cop – Stomach and overall body fat
Big Mama – Stomach and overall body fat
Lab Tech – Hair, body wounds, dangling hand
Soldier – Torso body wounds and torn uniform
Mutated Zombie – Acid bubbles on skin, including blended animation
Screamer – Clothing, hair and movement of jaw and tongue
Alpha 20 includes a preview of a new dismemberment feature to eventually replace the original system first introduced in Alpha 13. The new feature will allow zombies to have better-looking dismemberment effects, as well as unique effects per zombie.
Visual damage on zombies will differ depending on the type of weapon used to damage them. Blunt weapons can cave in a zombie’s head, while a bladed weapon can slice off the head entirely. Heads and limbs can be chopped off and can be seen falling to the ground, as well as some damage instances displaying custom animations and particle effects.
The initial release will include support added to a small number of zombies, with subsequent updates expanding support to all zombies.
Twitch Integration has been improved in A20 with balance, new commands and a new voting system. We’ve extended our point rewards for subscribing, gifting subs and raids. We’ve also added spam delay to help keep chat cleaner and support for custom events.
Voting introduces a new dynamic to the integration. Random polls are introduced, giving viewers options for new buffs and debuffs, attack hordes, and debuts brand new Boss Hordes! If the Vote Hordes eliminate the streamer, all voters receive a set reward.
Custom Events have been added to allow the streamer to customize their experience when viewers interact. These are based on bits, subscriptions, gift subs, raids and channel point redemptions. These are defined in the twitch_events.xml.
New features and commands include:
New Twitch Voting Mode
Progression mode has been improved with balance
Many new commands include:
#celebrate – It’s a party and everyone’s a pinata.
#dance_off – The Fun Pimps groove, and everyones invited.

The Tools Team has been busy the past year improving proprietary tools to speed up internal development and continue to support the 7 Days thriving modding community. Here are just a few of the many tools and modding support improvements Alpha 20 has to offer.
World Editor Improvements
When placing a new prefab it is centered with its front side on the position you selected and are aligned with the ground level in that position
While moving prefabs around they show a preview of their contents
Moving prefabs becomes faster the farther the player is away from them, making it easier to move prefabs across bigger distances
Placing/removing prefabs is now managed from the prefab browser known from the POI Editor
Show prefab names on the POI selection boxes (can be toggled in the “World Tools” tab)
Show info about the selected POI in the ESC menu
Prefabs you are close to always show their orientation
POI Editor Improvements
Allow highlighting all blocks of a certain type from the “Level Tools 2” tab
Allow restricting paint brush operations to blocks within the current selection box
Add option to select the biome used for playtesting
Debug mode and creative mode are enabled in playtesting by default
XML support for modding in your own tiles, parts, unique town types, and more
New Random Gen Preview tool mix options to support tweaking custom maps to your liking changing many things including:
Frequency of Towns
Frequency of Wilderness POI’s
Frequency of Rivers, Craters, Cracks, and Lakes
Frequency of Plains, Hills, and Mountains
Global amount of Randomness
Added a command line argument “-debugshapes” to get output on which block material / shape combinations are created by the shape system
Added console command “placeblockshapes” to easily place all variants of the shape / helper block you are holding
Added property “PlaceAsRandomRotation” making blocks get placed in a random allowed rotation
Added console command “placeblockrotations” to place the currently held block in all supported rotations
Added property “AllowedRotations” to specify which rotations a block can be placed in
Clients now allow loading mod DLLs the same way as on the dedicated server – as long as EAC is disabled
HarmonyX is shipped with the game to allow patching game code at runtime. In combination with loading DLLs on clients patching game code files should no longer be necessary for almost all mods
The mod code initialization call IModApi.InitMod is now passed in its own instance e.g. to get the mod’s base path
Class names specified in XMLs now always support namespaces and not having to use any hard coded class name prefix (e.g. custom block classes do not have to start with “Block” in their name)
LootContainer references are now based on names instead of numeral IDs, making collisions between mods less likely
XUi controls and styles can be shared between the menu XUi and the in-game XUi XMLs
The XUi pager now supports showing the max page number
Added a new XUi dropdown box
XML patch type names (like “insertafter”, “set”) are no longer case-sensitive
XML loading and patching shows line numbers on most errors during loading/patching them
Added better error messages when using “set”-patches
Server Administration and Multiplayer
To future-proof our game, including allowing us to use the latest anti-cheat and expanding to other platforms later on for future crossplay capabilities, we added Epic Online Services (EOS) to the game. For regular players this should not have any noticeable effect, you do NOT need an account on Epics platforms. EOS only knows your SteamID which is public anyway and matches that to an ID for EOS that is only valid for 7 Days to Die.
The change for server administration is in the user IDs that are used to store data and reference players, i.e. the filenames of user files, IDs in the serveradmin.xml or console output / commands which now refer to the user’s EOS ID.
Changed default “WorldGenSize” from 4096 to 6144 to match in-game default
Changed default “LootRespawnDays” from 30 to 7 to match in-game default
Added DynamicMesh options – see section about Dynamic Imposters for details
Added Twitch options – see section about Twitch Integration Improvements for details (? Lathan)
Fixed the Server Terminal Window sometimes not showing any output

The Fun Pimps have been busy not only working to go Gold on 7 Days and port it but to ramp up teams for 2 new exciting unannounced projects that are in early development. Join the team that started the Survival RPG genre.
‘7 Days to Die’ a Steam all time top 100 seller has sold over 12 million copies. Navezgane awaits!
Alpha A19.2 Stable is out! Along with some great fixes we enabled Steel Series’s game sense feature, allowing Steel Series Mouse and keyboard users to have some ingame events tied to their hardware LED lights.
Hey Survivors, We are proud to announce that the Alpha 19.1 Stable is out! The build has many great fixes, balance improvements and much more. Here are the full Official Release Notes, the forum bug reporting pool.
It is not often that I get personnel on the internet or with our company ‘The Fun Pimps’ but the last couple weeks we’re hard and under the circumstances I felt compelled to write something. You see on August 6th my Uncle, Joel’s Uncle our Uncle Jim died unexpectedly.
Jim was only a few years older than me so having Jim in my life was like having another older brother. Growing up we spent many weekends, holidays, and summers at my Grandparents farm with our Uncle Jim.
We shot old cans with BB Guns, looked for arrow heads down at the Creek, played with the dogs and cats, built stick forts out of old tree branches, cut shatter cane together for money, helped Grandpa with a cow giving birth, and ate stacks of Grandma’s pancakes together.
We played Pinball and Pool before video games even existed at the local Tavern, drank Orange Crush and Grape Nehi sodas while Grandpa had a Hamm’s Beer.
The first car I got to drive was Grandpas’ old truck with Jim, the first R rated movie I saw was ‘Dirty Harry’ at a Drive-in with Jim.
He was a kind and gentle soul, a good friend, and loyal to his family. He would never hurt anyone, never lie, would always help when needed, and would give you the shirt off his back. The list goes on and on. We had so many great memories of times we spent with my Uncle Jim.
One would think having this kind of impact on another’s life would be plenty. But there is so much more.
Jim gave his Nephews a love of comic books, Science Fiction Movies, Horror Movies, Action Movies, Board Games, and Action Figures. He also by example showed us how to make our own action figures by welding and reshaping plastic army men and painting them to look like superheroes at least 40 years before anyone ever heard the words ‘Merchandising’. He inspired us to make up own comic books with pencil and paper and build our own boards games from cardboard, construction paper, glue, and markers.
You see Jim was a big time Nerd years before it was cool to be one. Jim gave his Nephews a love of all these things and giant imagination to go with it. Nearly 50 Years later we are still Nerds.
With a lifetime love of movies, comic books, board games, and video games and a creative spark about 7 years ago my brother Joel and I, influenced so much by our Uncle Jim took that passion and imagination and started up a Video Game Company ‘The Fun Pimps Entertainment’ and created the ‘7 Days to Die game’.
Today the company has sold over 10 million games, employs nearly 50 people, and has provided a good living for all of us and our families.
Surely this would not have been possible for a couple of small town boys from Nebraska to achieve without the major influence of our first mentor ‘Uncle Jim’ who showed us all how to love the Nerdy side of life, open our imaginations and Dream big. You could say Jim was the original Pimp. His impact will not go unnoticed. So please go out and be a mentor to someone, and share what you love because you never know what impact you might have on them and what great things they may go off and achieve.
