New Points of Interest

In order to complement our updated RWG system, our Level Design team has added a ton of new content with over 75 new POIs that will be coming to Version 1.0.

Notable additions, improvements and efforts include:

  • A high focus on new remnants enhancing performance and providing more diverse environments to explore with lighter zombie counts. A majority of the remnants were created for the downtown district which was low on these types. These efforts have helped significantly with performance.

New Zombie Variants and Zombie Updates

Our existing zombies didn’t get left out. Version 1.0 introduces several new zombie variants with unique outfits. Most have received several clothing, skin and hari variation options that spawn, giving large groups a more organic composition and promoting an immersive experience.

Notable additions include:

  • A nurse from a children’s hospital with bears on her uniform
  • A bowling alley-themed outfit for the fat Hawaiian zombie.
  • Many more variants are coming, adding fresh visual elements to the game’s undead horde.
  • The demolition zombie has received a complete model makeover, aligning with the newest generation of zombie models. This iconic foe now features an updated and more terrifying look.

World Lighting Graphics Update

  • Trader inventories offer sales staged items for sale that are more appropriate for your character’s level.
  • The game is a little more crafting oriented than in the past, and legendary items are now craftable.

Dew Collector Overhaul

The Dew Collector has been reworked. It now supports 3 workstation tools, one of which is a water filter. This change makes the Dew Collector available early in game, but it collects murky water without having the filter installed.

Enhanced Gore System

Along with the new Zombie variants comes the new and improved Dismemberment Gore System, ensuring consistent dismemberment across zombie types, and as a bonus, there are also brand-new blood splatter particles to complete the visceral experience of combat. 

With Version 1.0, the entire zombie lineup has been upgraded with new gore pieces, including a complete overhaul of recently updated zombies from past Alphas. This ensures all zombies are consistent with the latest technology, enhancing the game’s visual impact and immersion.

Updated Road Decals

Say goodbye to one of our last remaining legacy assets, our original Road Decals. They’ve been revamped, giving them a modern face-lift to help make the roads and lots of Navezgane County feel more lived in and legitimate. 

Players can now enjoy enhanced realism with updated road decals, featuring more detailed and immersive trash and debris scattered on the roads. This update adds another layer of authenticity to the game environment, making the post-apocalyptic world feel more lived-in and engaging.

Twitch Integration Update

The latest update introduces exciting new features for Twitch integration:

  • Small Zombies: A new command that shrinks down the size of zombies, adding a fun and challenging twist to gameplay.
  • On Screen Extension: Interactive Twitch features are now displayed directly on screen, enhancing the viewer and streamer experience.

These features provide more interactive and engaging content for both players and their audiences.

New World Borders

The game now features layered world borders, replacing the old radiation zones. The very outer layer is a no-go zone, preventing players from walking off the map. Just inside this is a no-build zone, ensuring players cannot build too close to the edge. As players approach the border, the area fogs up, providing a clear visual cue. This system allows more Points of Interest (POIs) to spawn near the map’s edges, increasing the playable area while communicating to the player you can’t go that way.

New Upgradeable Player Chests

Introducing player writeable storage boxes! Start with a basic wooden box, which can be upgraded to iron, and eventually to steel. Each upgrade increases the storage capacity, providing more space for your items.

The environment Art team has been busy with many new block shapes to build with.
162 new shapes added to fill in missing shapes to roofs, railings, poles, stairs, and many more.

A ton of work has gone into improving Gamepad Support to make it control better, more intuitive and have native console features including: 

  • New UI navigation system that removes the virtual cursor
  • Overhauled modern camera controls that are easier to use and can be extensively customized

Modding Notes

  • Game updated to Unity 2022.3.29f1
  • Updated HarmonyX to 2.13.0
  • ModInfo: Now requires ModInfo in V2 format, also properties “Name” and “DisplayName” no longer optional as announced in Alpha 21
  • XML parsing now supports “conditional” blocks:
    • Allows switching between different XML blocks based on conditions like game version, whether a certain mod is loaded etc
    • Can be evaluated once by the host when loading the XMLs so host and every client will have the same resulting XML or by each game instance separately, so that host and every client can have different effects, e.g. when based on a GamePref
    • Also supported on the top level of patch XMLs: These are always applied during XML loading
    • Detailed documentation will be added to the game’s wiki
  • XML patches now feature a new instruction “include” which allows including another XML in place, e.g. to split up large XMLs into smaller pieces or – combined with the usage of conditional blocks – include different XML based on other conditions
  • New XML “events.xml”: Allows defining date based events (like christmas, halloween etc) and use them with conditional XML blocks – have the pipe baton automatically use a candy cane shiv model during christmas season or pumpkins use a halloween based model during that time
  • Z-Selection box for POI or world building now shows the current selection size
  • Updated POI properties windows to reflect the current POI features
  • Debugging:
    • Debug views (F3) now remember the selected elements
    • CVar filter box can no longer have the input focus when the mouse cursor is not enabled – avoids accidentally overwriting your filter while running around
    • FPS graph and network monitor available in releases
  • Game assembly gets fully publicized members for easier code modding – each member that has changed access level gets an attribute “PublicizedFrom” attached that will tell you the original accessibility level. Accessing originally not public stuff is still meant to be a last resort if other approaches fail.
  • New BlockCompositeTileEntity with respective TileEntityComposite
    • This is a generic TileEntity (TE) block which allows selecting which features it should have from XML (“compositing”)
    • Currently these features are supported:
      • Lockable: The TE can be locked
      • LockPickable: Players can pick the lock on the TE (only usable in combination with Lockable)
      • Signable: The TE can be written on. The prefab used for the TE will have to have properly set up TextMeshes – at least one but it supports as many as desired
      • Storage: The TE will have container features
    • These TE properly support up/downgrading, so for example a block that has Signable can upgrade to a block that supports Storage and Signable and keep its text
    • Adding new features does not require enumeration modifications so should be easier going forward to add custom TE features from mods
    • Example usage of these features can be seen on the new player storage blocks “cntWoodWritableCrate” and similar
  • File lookup prioritizes files in user data (e.g. LocalPrefabs) over mods
  • New game argument “-newprefabsmod=somemod” allows defining a mod in which new prefabs get stored instead of going to “LocalPrefabs”. Mod name is given by its internal name from its “ModInfo.xml”, not the folder name
  • XUi changes:
    • Generic “repeat_content” attribute support for all views. For non-grid views the attribute “repeat_count” specifies the number of clones
    • Repeated elements automatically get fed with additional template parameters that can be used with template bindings (“${…}”):
      • For every parent view: “repeat_count” giving the number of elements as specified by “repeat_count” attribute and “repeat_i” incrementing by one for each created element, starting at 0
      • Additionally for grid views only: “repeat_col” and “repeat_row” giving the column and row the element will be in the grid – assuming the grid dimensions do not change later on
    • New attribute “disabled_tooltip_key” lets you define a tooltip that gets shown when hovering a disabled view
    • New attribute “force_hide” allows keeping a view invisible
    • New attributes for controller navigation:
      • “use_selection_box”: Should controller navigation show an outline around the selected view
      • “gamepad_selectable”: View can be selected with a controller
      • “nav_up”, “nav_down”, “nav_left”, “nav_right”: Manual override which view to select when pressing the respective direction on a controller
    • Texture views now support: Color tinting (“color” attribute) and for keeping the texture’s aspect ratio (attribute “original_aspect_ratio”)
  • XML “extends” now allow excluding specified subclasses (like “UpgradeBlock” in blocks) so that all its children are actually excluded
  • Changes to quests should no longer kill savegames’ character files – though the affected quests will lose their details in the quest log
  • Plants tick correctly when placed on the same position as another plant was growing before – before the timer would potentially not reset thus accumulating the old and new growth times
  • Perks can now have LevelRequirements for individual levels only instead of being required to be specified for all levels if done for at least one
  • “Inventory.PUBLIC_SLOTS” is changed to be targeted by mods, making it easier to implement custom toolbelt sizes. Also a new property “SHIFT_KEY_SLOT_OFFSET” has been added that allows specifying which slots are meant to be targeted when using Shift + slot hotkey
  • World Editor: Previews of POI now match the actual state when rotating them

TFP News Screen

We have moved the old shared menu news screen into a new skippable in-game News screen that has graphics and link support for all formats. This will be used to inform players on new patch updates and other TFP news.

Server Administration

Changes to serverconfig.xml:

  • Setting “SaveGameFolder” has been removed. It is now always based on the “UserDataFolder”
  • New setting “IgnoreEOSSanctions”: Allows ignoring EOS sanctions when players want to join servers. Defaults to false

Alpha Exodus: Leaving Early Access 04.20.24

Alpha Exodus: Leaving Early Access

The Fun Pimps are happy to announce 7 Days is leaving Early Access! With the launch of the next update, we’re moving officially to 1.0 for 7 Days to Die.

TFP Co-Founder Richard Huenink details the move in this Video. He’ll talk about our decision to leave early access, the tentative launch dates for PC and Console Alpha 22 (Now 1.0), the roadmap of planned future updates and features ahead for all platforms, and the games new pricing. 

ALPHA EXODUS: The Road to 1.0 (Video)


Have more questions? Look at our comprehensive FAQ below!



Q: Why release now?
A: We have been developing 7 Days for nearly 12 years and have had over twenty large scale early access releases that have brought the game to a significantly different place and quality than where it began. Our team feels satisfied with our efforts, especially with the significant overall progress, art quality and optimizations that have gone into the current release slated for all PC and Consoles and are ready for launch. We are now turning our focus to other ways we can support ALL versions of the game – through our planned roadmap, free updates, and beyond! The Fun Pimps have and will continue to support 7 Days to Die development with a majority of their resources.

Q: Why are some features in the road map?
We have put significant work into these systems but some still have a ways to go to be ready for prime time. Rather than keep 7 Days to Die in further Alphas, we think it’s time to leave early access and officially announce our 1.0 launch, future plans and commit to the deadlines on these features. With that said, supporting and keeping parity with PC, PS5, and Xbox X/S Series will be our top priority.

Q: So what does this mean for A22 and other Alpha builds?
A: Alpha build updates that were detailed or talked about prior to this news are going to become the major planned updates shown in the road map. The naming convention will reset to “Version 1.0” and so forth.

Q: Will there still be early release/experimental builds?
A: Yes, we still release experimental builds on Steam before going stable. Stable releases will go to console and other PC markets after they are ready.

Q: Will I still be able to access older alphas of the game?
A: Yes we will continue to support this on Steam as the Steam policies permit. This will not be a feature in other platforms.

Q: What about the Kickstarter stretch goals?
A: We’re working on completing all stretch goals. As mentioned in the Kickstarter, some of these features will come post-launch. We are focused on ensuring all Kickstarter backers will receive the promised content.

Q: What was the 7 Days to Die “Apocalypse Edition”?
A: This was a tentative name we were considering for the console 1.0 release of the game. But, after working with Microsoft and Sony, we thought the best way to avoid brand confusion was to call it the console edition. We are scrapping “Apocalypse Edition” at this time to hopefully avoid confusion.

Q: Is there a roadmap for post-release?
Yes! You can view it below. Once 1.0 Launches, we’ll be updating the image with a more detailed look at what’s coming and when.


Q: Will there be a price raise?
A: Yes, at launch of 1.0 stable the standard retail price of the game from that point forward will increase to $44.99 on all platforms and storefronts. We are offering a major Last Chance weeklong deal sale on Steam from April 22 to April 29, 2024 so that people will have one last chance to get the game before the price increases.

Q: What will the price increase mean for my current PC/Steam copy of 7 Days to Die?
Absolutely nothing! Your PC/Steam copy of 7 Days to Die is still yours, and nothing will change besides it coming out of early access with a large free update and all future free updates. We appreciate your early and continued support of our title, and hope you enjoy the full launch.

Users who did not purchase the title before the pricing increase will, of course, have to buy the game at the new retail price point (or during any of our discount periods on Steam in the future!)

Q: Why increase the cost?
We feel as though the quality standard of the game has gone up significantly from when the initial price was set over 8 years ago along with over a decade of content and improvements. We’ve looked at how others have handled leaving early access, and this is a common practice. We in particular want the price of the PC version to have parity with the Console version. We do not wish to force any current users to spend more money to play the game they’ve always supported. However, new users should see the value the game offers reflected in the cost, and we hope that continued support might fund future endeavors in expanding the 7 Days to Die game even further – DLCs, Expansions, and continued free updates (including everything listed in the Road Map)!


Q: What does 1.0 Mean for a Console Release?
A: We are pleased to announce that 1.0 will be the version that the console launches on. While we currently are working out the exact release date, we’re aiming for it to release only a few weeks after the launch of PC 1.0 Stable.

Q: Will the Console Version have Crossplay?
A: While it will not be ready for the 1.0 Release, we are pleased to report that Crossplay connections already work with PC, PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. However, we are waiting for  certification approval with Microsoft and Sony. We intend to have more information in the future, and hope for it to be released with Update 1’s launch (tentatively scheduled for Q4 2024).

Q: What about the old Console version?
A: Due to the significant technical differences between old and current console hardware,  we will not be upgrading the legacy version. Legacy owners will have to buy the new title.  However, we are working closely with Sony and Microsoft to provide a discount to digital legacy owners on their purchase of the new console edition. 

We made the decision early on to focus on a ‘new’ version of the game that is unified with our PC version, and our efforts to update the game post-launch will be entirely focused on that version.

Q: What about the old Console version’s availability?
A: Due to product and branding confusion, we will be delisting the legacy console version from digital storefronts when the new version releases. You will still be able to play your old copy if you own it, but no future purchases of the legacy edition will be possible.

Q: Will I be able to use my old saves on the new version?
A: No. You will, of course, be able to continue to use your old saves on the Legacy version if it is installed, but saves will not carry over as they are not compatible with the numerous new changes. 

Q: Will the new Console Edition get the same updates this time?
A: Yes! Our plan is to give the console edition owners every free update that the PC version gets, keeping parity with PC for Crossplay. If a feature is not technically possible due to hardware restrictions, or is otherwise restricted by certification requirements set by Microsoft or Sony, it will not make it to the console edition. We will outline any future updates if they will be limited or not make it to the console edition.

Q: Will the Console Edition get modding support?
A: We are discussing this, but there are no concrete plans yet. We are looking into how this might be achieved while maintaining performance on the console edition. 

Q: Will the Console Edition support local splitscreen?
A: No. Due to technical limitations and memory restrictions, this feature is not currently possible on the Console Edition.

Q: Are there any plans for future consoles/ports?
A: We have no plans to announce at this time. We are still looking into other platforms.

Q: Will there be a physical edition of the game?
A: At launch, the game will be digital only. We have no plans to announce at this time, but may look into this in the future.

Q: Will there be any limitations or differences between Console Edition and PC on launch?
A: Console Edition will have some limitations, including:

  • Random Gen: The Console Edition will launch with a collection of pregenerated maps and the Navezgane experience. However, Random Gen will come in a patch soon after launch.
  • Level/Prefab Editor and World Editor: The console edition will not launch with the level or world editor..
  • Internet Connection/Server Connection: At launch, the console edition will be restricted to peer-to-peer games on the same platform. As mentioned in the Crossplay section above, we intend to release Crossplay in Update 1, barring any certification requirements or technical hurdles.
  • Other Differences: There will be a document in the future that details any other specific differences in performance, online capabilities, hosting features and more. 

UPDATE (4/22):

Q: What does this mean for Gamepass?
A: 7 Days to Die will be leaving Gamepass by the end of April. At this time, there are no plans to enter back into Gamepass. However, we are exploring all future avenues with Microsoft.

Q: Save incompatibility between console versions? Also, will there still be Save incompatibility between patches?
A: Due to the technical architecture of 7 Days to Die’s game engine, users will have to start a new game with each major update. Eventually, this will not be the case.

Thank You from All The Fun Pimps

7 Days to Die has been an incredible journey for our Team over the last 12 years, and for our fans who have been with us since the beginning. This game would not be possible without the continued support of our incredible community who have stood by us for over a decade, and we thank you all for that.

We will continue to support 7 Days to Die, because this game is still our team’s greatest passion. TFP will continue to make content, add new features and grow this Franchise… because it’s our favorite game too! We look forward to a bright future with many exciting releases!

Thank you for all of the support you have given us over the years!

Mischief Maker Usage 07.21.23

Hey Survivors,

The Mischief Maker Twitch Extension has been monetized by Mischief Maker in a way that is non-compliant with our EULA and therefore results in a copyright infringement of 7 Days to Die by those who use the extension and by Mischief Maker.  

Mischief Maker received written legal notice of the copyright infringement and EULA non-compliance several days before Fun Pimps took action to take down infringing streams using the Mischief Maker Extension.

Anyone who streams through Twitch using the illegal Mischief Maker Extension will be risking a DMCA takedown as well.

The Fun Pimps have always welcomed Mods to 7 Days to Die that do not illegally monetize the game and will continue to permit streaming or video creation on any platform that does not violate our EULA.

A21 Official Release Notes 06.05.23

Hey Survivors,

It has been a while since our last major release, December 2021 to be exact. For a year and a half, our growing team has been working hard to bring you Alpha 21. This Alpha delivers more polish, optimizations, updates, quality-of-life improvements, new content, new features, and new gameplay systems than ever before. We say it every Alpha, and we will say it again, this is the biggest and baddest version of the game to date.

If you have never played 7 Days to Die or you have not played it for a while, you’re going to want to check out Alpha 21. Pushing hard towards the Gold Version, this impressive mountain of work could only be achieved by the lengthy, iterative, development style we have gone through. The Fun Pimps dream big and know that nothing of this magnitude comes overnight. Building on an already solid foundation, this update sets the bar even higher for the sandbox, survival, simulation, RPG game genre.

We are very proud of the work, passion, and dedication our team has poured into 7 Days to Die and we hope you enjoy Alpha 21 as much as we have.

Please find our Announcement for A21 Experimental and bug report instructions here.

The Fun Pimps Team

Environment Art

The environment team has been heavily focused on the design, production, and implementation of hundreds of new high definition and physically based assets to help the world feel more believable and immersive. Additionally, new and updated shaders add a finishing touch to the environments. Below are a few categories of props that have been updated.

  • Ramp Kits
  • Platform Kits
  • Wall Kits
  • Trader Location Props
  • Military Props
  • Biohazard Props
  • Nature Props

  • Construction Props
  • Furniture
  • Lighting Props
  • Static Vehicle Props
  • Wall art

  • Workbench Workstation
  • Forge Workstation
  • Chemistry Workstation
  • Campfire Workstation

Graphic Design Art

The graphic design team has been crafting a large amount of high quality graphical elements that breathe life and storytelling into the world. Keep and eye out for these graphic elements listed below.

  • Food Labels and Posters
  • Calendars
  • Wall Art
  • Schematics
  • Tractor Logo
  • Trader Flag
  • White River Flag
  • Liquor Packaging
  • Magazines
  • Workstation Elements

New Doors

Introducing an exciting range of new doors, including the much-anticipated double doors! These numerous additions bring a level of detail to in-game locations that were previously unimaginable. Moreover, players can now enjoy updated craftable door options, expanding their repertoire of door types to choose from. As an innovative feature, doors gradually deteriorate as they sustain damage, resulting in visible holes that can be utilized for shooting or melee attacks. Be cautious, though, as certain doors may develop holes large enough to pass through without being completely destroyed. Exercise caution and strategize accordingly!

Loot Container Changes

When emptied, smaller containers such as trash bags, backpacks, and bird nests will now be destroyed. On the other hand, larger containers like clothing racks, desks, filing cabinets, and gun safes will transition to an open state once they have been emptied. This update brings a more realistic and immersive experience, as players can observe the visual representation of empty containers while navigating the game world.

World Water

We’ve made visual improvements to prevent water from clipping through semi-solid block shapes, such as thin or rounded wall segments. Under the hood we’ve overhauled water simulation to improve performance, reduce networking traffic, and provide more consistent and natural flow behavior, particularly with respect to large bodies of water such as lakes and rivers.


The game has received an exciting update with the addition of a hazard system. This latest release introduces flame hazards that must be deactivated within specific locations in order to advance on your path. While active, these hazards will unleash intense fire damage upon anyone or anything that dares to approach too closely.


More zombies now utilize the new gore system.

POI and Biome Difficulty Improvements

When you enter a POI, a HUD pop up will display its name and difficulty tier which is represented by the number of red skulls. These POI names will also appear on the quest text at the trader. 

When you enter a Biome, you will see the biome difficulty represented by the number of orange skulls.

  • Forest – 0
  • Burnt (Navezgane Only) – 0.5
  • Desert – 1
  • Snow – 1.5
  • Wasteland – 2

The overall difficulty of the POI and Biome is represented by the number of Red and Orange skulls combined.

With this in mind, the same POI in the wasteland will be more difficult and have higher game staged enemies and loot than the same POI in the forest.

We also have fixed a bug with party game staging. Parties now work as designed and have balanced game staging to provide a better scaled challenge.

POI Localization

Points of interest (POIs) have undergone localization, receiving easily understandable and relatable names. These new names are not only incorporated into the quest system, but are also displayed on the upper right corner of the screen, above the Quest and Recipe Tracker.

Furthermore, if you backed the Kickstarter campaign and pledged for location naming, you will now have the privilege of having a POI named after you.

Infestation Quests

We have added a new quest type we call Infestation which starts at Tier 2. The system takes a supported POI and adds a +1 to its Tier. In an Infestation Quest, the zombie counts are multiplied to create a greater challenge. At the end, it will reward you with a special loot box, almost always found in the loot room. This left Tier 5 POIs with infestation in a bit of a pickle. Tier 5 POIs as an Infestation Quest, can now be found as Tier 6 difficulty POIs.

Random World Generation Update

Random World Generation (RWG) has gone through the biggest iterative updates to date. We have learned something from every previous version we have done so far. It’s not easy to create something nobody has done before, but we are committed to creating Random Generated Worlds better than anyone on the planet and we think you will agree when you play the latest Alpha 21 Random Gen. 

The latest release focuses on improving RWG speed, visuals, POI placement, and adding new features to enhance the player experience and addressing several bugs.

Many notable improvements include:

  • RWG creation speed has been greatly improved. Generation speeds up to 4 to 5 times faster than before have been seen in some cases.
  • Merging highways between gateway tiles and township rural tiles has been added
  • A new scoring system for prefab pick ordering, xml entries to help control overall placement, spawn weights, and min max counts ensure POI’s don’t repeat too often.
  • Country Tiles have been added which give the rural areas more believable surrounds for POIS to spawn
  • Road smoothing has been greatly improved.
  • A new street tile system that uses an overworld grid to allow for more concise placement of wilderness, towns, and highways.
  • A “New Game” button has been added to the Advanced Generation screen to allow players to immediately play the map they have generated without having to remember the map name.

Chunk Reset System

We’ve added a new advanced game option called “Chunk Reset Time”. Enabling this setting will cause chunks to be reset to their original states when left unvisited for a specified in-game duration. Land claims, bedrolls, and other important player-owned objects such as backpacks and vehicles will prevent nearby chunks from being reset; so you don’t have to worry about your home base disappearing, or logging in to find your 4×4 exchanged for a tree which regrew in its place. However, loot containers and workstations which are not within a protected area can be reset, so players who use this feature must be mindful of where they store their valuables.

In effect, this feature allows previously-visited locations to respawn their loot and recover from destruction whilst the player is away. It also helps to reduce save sizes by clearing out stored data for the reset chunks until they’re revisited.

The setting is disabled by default, but can be configured at will in the Advanced tab of the New Game and Continue Game menus.

Survival Rebalance

  • To enhance the survival experience, water collection has been rebalanced by removing empty jars and cans.
  • Boiled water now requires a cooking pot to craft in the campfire.
  • Most “clean” water and drinks have been extremely lowered in loot.
  • A new Dew Collector workstation has been added to provide clean drinking water.
    • Crafted in the player backpack, players will need to visit a trader to obtain a key component: a water filter.
    • Water is slowly accumulated over time at a rate of approximately 3 jars every 24 game hours.
    • Players can place multiple Dew Collectors
    • DewCollectors must have a clear view of the sky.
      • Bars and other “see-through” shapes are acceptable to be placed above.
  • Drink Vending machines have had quantities increased including specialized drinks.
  • Due to water used in crafting, glue has been increased in loot, quest rewards, and trader inventories.

Crafting Skills System

Crafting unlocks have been moved out of the Perks System and into a new Crafting Skills System. Players will need to read various quantities of Crafting Skill Magazines in order to progress through the crafting tiers. These magazines are found in loot containers, zombie loot bags, air drops, given as quest rewards, or sold by the traders.

The Crafting Skills System solves two issues:
1. Players won’t be able to skip the progression of tool and weapon tiers.

  • Previously, players could max out a perk’s crafting quality unlock with primitive tools and weapons and then instantly craft higher tiers once the materials were found or unlocked. A good example of this would be a stone ax that could be crafted at quality 5, but then iron and steel pickaxes could be crafted at that same quality level.

2. Removes the crafting unlocks from perk classes

  • Players are no longer required to perk into various classes to obtain the unlocks. All crafting skills can be unlocked by all players.
  • The unlocks are removed from perks, however, each level of a perk will give a probability boost to certain magazines. An example would be the perk Boomstick giving a boost to finding more of the Shotgun Weekly magazines. Boomstick will also boost shotguns, shotgun parts, and the various types of shotgun ammo found in loot.

Perk Overhaul

With crafting unlocks moving to the new Crafting Skills System, perks have been overhauled to be more streamlined for each class.

  • Sexual Tyrannosaurus has been moved to each weapon perk. Players no longer have to perk into Strength to get the stamina benefits of ole Sexy T. Want better stamina with clubs? Put perk points into Pummel Pete and keep from getting winded too soon.
  • Flurry of Blows has been moved into each Attribute as a new perk.
    • Perception: Quick and Perceptive – Increases the attack speed of spears
    • Strength: Big and Fast – Increases the attack speed of clubs and sledges
    • Fortitude: Lightning Hands – Increases the attack speed of fists and fist weapons
    • Agility: Whirlwind –  Increases the attack speed of knives
    • Intellect: Calculated Attack – Increases the attack speed of batons
  • Physician perk has gained the ability to treat sprains and give more XP when using healing items. Dismemberment gets a boost with batons on level 4 while level 5 has a chance to instantly kill the target with a stun baton.
  • Master Chef allows players to cook faster with each level.
  • Lock Picking moved to Intellect
  • Grease Monkey grants the ability to use fewer repair kits when repairing vehicles
    • Zombies and animals are now killed nearly instantly when hit by a vehicle, but the vehicle takes more damage than previous versions.
    • Vehicles also take more damage when hitting objects or taking hard landings.

Perk Book Reworks

  • Spear Hunter Vol 3 changed from Steel Spear Unlock to Bleeding Damage
    • Spears have a 25% chance to cause bleeding damage.
  • Spear Hunter Vol 4 changed from Strong Arm to Kill Move
    • Power attacks do 50% more damage to downed targets.
  • Spear Hunter Vol 6 changed from Punctured Lung to Penetrating Shaft
    • Power attacks now penetrate and damage multiple enemies.
  • Spear Hunter Complete
    • Primal Kill: Kills with spears refill your stamina.
  • Automatic Weapons Vol 7 changed from M60 Unlock to Hip Fire
    • Aiming from the hip with greater accuracy can save your ass in close quarters situations.
  • Batter Up Vol 2 changed from Gear to Stealing Bases
    • Sprinting with a club drawn in combat uses 20% less stamina.
  • Batter Up Vol 6 changed from Bat Unlock to Foul Balls
    • Power attacks with clubs have a 20% chance to ragdoll enemies.
  • The Great Heist Vol 3 changed from Timed Charges Unlock to Gold Rush
    • Find 10% more dukes and old cash
  • The Great Heist Complete
    • Find 20% more lockpicks in loot
  • Art of Mining Vol 7 changed from Mining Helmet Unlock to Damage
    • Mining tools do 10% more block damage.

Perception and Spear Overhaul

It is mind blowing how powerful Rifles are now…literally. Pop zombie heads with ease with a boost to head shots when using the pipe, hunting, lever action, and sniper rifles.

The spear has gotten a rework. After much consideration, we decided to make it work like other weapons and exchanged the throw for a power attack. This makes the spear a much better sneak attack weapon and players do not have to worry about losing their fully modded spear when thrown. With the new door damage, spears are the best melee weapons for poking through the holes into pesky zombie heads.

Recipe Tracker

Having trouble remembering that recipe? Well, in Alpha 21, players can track recipes while out collecting resources. Items are tracked in a list shown in the upper right hand side of the screen. When the correct quantities are collected, the items will be highlighted in green. When all items are collected, a tool belt message will appear letting you know the item can be crafted.

Crafting Quality Selection

It’s likely that you’ve encountered a common problem: after gathering the necessary materials and components to craft your tool or weapon, you’ve invested additional points into the relevant skill, only to discover that the newly unlocked quality requires more materials than you currently possess. However, this predicament is no longer a concern, as you now have the ability to choose the desired quality of the crafted item, granting you control over the amount of materials invested.

Loot Balancing

Considerable attention has been devoted to achieving balance in various aspects of the game. This includes fine-tuning the availability of food and water, ensuring quest rewards are appropriately balanced, refining trader inventories to offer a fair selection of items, and the distribution of crafting skill magazines. 

Starter Quest 

The introductory quest has undergone simplification to provide a step-by-step breakdown of the initial stages of the game. Through user-friendly instructions and onscreen assistance, both novice players and seasoned veterans will be effortlessly guided to swiftly accomplish the initial milestones of their gaming experience.

HUD-less Mode

For those looking for a more immersive gameplay, players can now hide the HUD by pressing F7 one time. This mode will now allow players to remove the HUD, but still be able to interact with doors, loot containers, vehicles, and more. Pressing F7 again will change to “picture” mode that hides ALL HUD elements. Pressing F7 a third time will go back to default. 

Spawn Near Backpack

In this latest update, an exciting new feature has been introduced for respawning after death. With an active bedroll, players now have the choice to respawn in close proximity to the location where their backpack is found. This convenient option enables players to swiftly retrieve their lost loot without the need to place a new bedroll, as the primary purpose of bedrolls was not originally intended for this particular function.

Vehicle Damage

  • Vehicle collisions take more damage, but also cause more damage, so repair kits are more relevant to game play.
  • Repair kits repair a fixed amount of damage instead of all vehicle damage
  • New blood splatter when hitting entities
  • Improved ragdoll hits and can cause dismemberment on hit entities
  • Additional spark effects when hitting blocks
  • Improved block collision damage calculations

Wandering Hordes

To promote engagement and encourage players to confront wandering hordes, we have implemented an increase in the chances of loot bags dropping from these encounters. This adjustment aims to incentivize players to actively engage with wandering hordes instead of allowing them to pass by without engagement. Furthermore, an additional improvement ensures that wandering hordes will no longer occur just before the commencement of your blood moon event, providing a more balanced and predictable gameplay experience.

Twitch Extension

We’ve added a new Twitch extension to allow viewers to interact with the streamer without cluttering up the chat. This allowed for the addition of more advanced actions that cost Bits. We’ve also added Presets to customize your integration experience. Custom Events have also been added for Twitch events such as Subs, Gifting Subs, Raids, Hype Trains, and Channel Point Redeems.

Performance & Optimizations

  • Unity version update
  • Window block optimizations
    • All Windows have been converted to shapes which are more performant.
    • Full windows downgrade to broken.
    • Broken and Empty windows upgrade to Full.
    • Only Full windows can upgrade material.
  • Improved prop LOD transition values by adding LOD categories so similar props cross fade at the same distances. They also cull at more relevant distances which improves performance.
  • Trees (adjustments to meshes and settings for better performance)
  • AI can handle more zombies by throttling their activity based on distance to player
  • AI pathing can handle many more paths per second
  • Less memory use
  • A variety of other small performance optimizations

Networking Improvements

  • Greatly reduced network traffic
  • Entities have variable update rate based on distance

There have been a number of improvements and optimizations made for a smoother multiplayer experience. Character animations and ragdolls now sync smoothly while behind the scenes many optimizations have been made to create a more in-sync experience while also greatly reducing the overall network traffic while playing. This includes a new prioritization system that can increase the rate of server updates for specific entities based on their proximity to players.

Server Administration and Multiplayer


The old Web control panel for the server has been removed in favor of a new Web Dashboard. This is the first step of bringing over what has previously been known as Allocs Server Fixes, providing Web based APIs for interacting with the server as well as a browser interface to those features. Compared to the old mod this interface currently lacks all of the APIs that provide information on players.

This new Web Dashboard is currently provided as a mod shipped with the dedicated server version in order to be able to speed up iteration times independently of the actual game releases when improvements are made or fixes integrated.

If you were previously using the control panel to automate server tasks you will need to switch over to the new API system:

  • Normally you define API tokens in the serveradmin.xml or via the ‘webtokens’ command, but you can also define one API token on the command line with the ‘-webapitokenname=x’ and ‘-webapitokensecret=y’ arguments which will define a single token with permission level 0
  • The API endpoint to issue commands is ‘/api/command’. The token name and secret need to be passed as HTTP headers ‘X-SDTD-API-TOKENNAME’ and ‘X-SDTD-API-SECRET’. The request needs to use the POST method and contain a JSON body consisting of ‘{“command”: “command to execute”}’

There are new config options related to the dashboard:

  • ‘WebDashboardEnabled’ toggles the whole system on or off
  • ‘WebDashboardPort’ specifies the TCP port to run the interface on
  • ‘WebDashboardUrl’ should contain the full URL that points to the dashboard, e.g. to a reverse proxy forwarding to the internal dashboard, like ‘https://proxydomain:8000/’. If the server can be reached with its public IP directly this value can be left empty
  • ‘EnableMapRendering’ decides whether the game renders the map tiles to corresponding images that can be seen on the Web Dashboard or used with other tools to get a full view of the discovered game map.

Mumble Positional Audio

Alpha 21 brings support for Mumble’s Positional Audio feature. This means once it is enabled in the game audio settings and in your Mumble client you can play with your friends and hear in which direction they are from your view and get to hear them louder or quieter depending on their distance. Detailed setup instructions can be found on this Wiki page.

Modding Notes

  • Game updated to Unity 2021.3.19
  • Updated HarmonyX to 2.10.0
  • Added a popup to the main menu when mods with custom code were found during loading but EAC is active
  • Added support for ModInfo format v2. It is recommended to migrate mods to use that format as this will be a requirement later on. Format specification
  • Support for new XML patch operation “csv”:
    • Manipulate elements like tags
    • Requires attribute “op” being either “Add” or “Remove”
    • Optional attribute “delim” containing a single character. If not specified defaults to comma “,”. Has to match the delimiter used in the list you want to patch
    • Text of the element specifies the value(s) to add or remove, separated by the same delimiter specified
    • Remove supports wildcard in the beginning and/or end of the name, so a name can be e.g. “ammo*” to match all names starting with “ammo” instead of an exact match
    • Adding does skip names that are already in the patched list, e.g. patching “sight,movement,melee,bullet,arrow,rocket” with adding “player,bullet” would only add “player”, not “bullet” as it is already in the old list
  • Block class PlantGrowing with IsRandom set to true:
    • Now works in unloaded chunks
    • ‘PlantGrowing.GrowthRate’ property defines the mean value
    • New property ‘PlantGrowing.GrowthDeviation’ is a factor defining the min/max deviation from mean. Defaults to 0.25

    • A single DLL can now have multiple IModAPI implementations
    • Multiple DLLs are supported for IModAPI and game classes
    • All DLLs from all mods are loaded first before iterating classes so that mod load order does not affect resolving referenced types across multiple mods
  • Console command ‘exportcurrentconfigs’ now opens the dump folder in the explorer
  • New console command ‘damagereset’ to repair all blocks in a POI
  • Game command line argument ‘-quick-continue’ allows bypassing the main menu and directly continuing with the last played save
  • Game launcher now supports the new arguments ‘-logpath <folder>’ and ‘-forceeac <on|off>’
  • Game launcher now supports the new argument ‘-skip-launcher’ to not show it even if it would be shown by default (e.g. because of its “Show launcher everytime” option)
  • World’s prefabs.xml is now always saved with y-offset based positions when using the world editor so that changes to the ground level height in prefabs does not require changes to worlds using them
  • Quests above tier 5 no longer show as tier “I” but instead use the correct roman number
  • Localization files are tested for a valid header line and show appropriate errors
  • XUi texture view with local texture file no longer fails when the full path to the texture contains a ‘+’ or ‘#’
  • XUi detection of style references vs strings just starting with “[“ and ending in “]” was fixed so that e.g. an text attribute can have values like “[FF0000]Red text[-]”

Changes for mods with custom code doing custom I/O:

We’ve replaced direct usage of System.IO classes such as File and Directory throughout the codebase with custom classes named with an “Sd” prefix (shorthand for “save data” – and/or “seven days” if you prefer). The new classes are SdFile, SdDirectory, SdFileInfo, SdDirectoryInfo, and SdFileSystemInfo. Mods should also switch to using these when accessing any user data or save data (it is okay to use standard File IO for other data though). Also some guidelines:

  • Make sure to not hold the streams open for too long.
  • Keep file sizes small if possible.

Reasons for this change include:

  • To facilitate a future backup feature that is active during writing, which should assist with power loss during writes resulting in corrupted data, the trade off being additional writes to disk and higher memory usage. Persisting to disk will happen some time after closing the stream.
  • Support for saves on other platforms (e.g. consoles). Some platforms require writes to happen within a certain window and some platforms do not provide standard File IO for saves, but have key-value storage only, both of which we have to abstract over.

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!
