    0XP RolMod A18



    Now A18 Compatible

    1) Zero Experience For Actions

    Actions in the game are now only valuable for helping you survive and accomplish your goals. There are no xp bonuses attached to individual actions that make killing zombies more valuable than farming or mining or scavenging or building. Zombies are now an obstacle to your objectives instead of a source of xp income tempting you hunt them down and kill them. Use stealth to avoid or weapons to destroy and as long as you survive the day you will get rewarded either way.

    2) Daily Skillpoint For Surviving

    Gain skill points simply for surviving according to the following schedule:

    After your first and second days of survival, you will gain one skill point each day.
    On your third and fourth days of survival, you will earn two skill points each day.
    After your fifth day of survival and thereafter you will earn 3 skill points per day.

    If you die your penalty will be having to start over with earning 1 then 2 and then 3 skill points AND the timer begins fresh from when you respawn so it will take 5 full days of no deaths to regain the highest level of skill point generation.

    Costs of attribute and perk progression have been increased to compensate for the increase in skill point gains.

    Attribute costs for levels 2-10 are: 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
    Perk costs for levels 1-5 are: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5

    3) Training In Return For Jobs

    Beginning with Tier 3 and Tier 4 quests you will be rewarded 1 skill point in addition to the other quest rewards. Tier 5 quests will reward you with 2 skill points. This puts an incentive on doing quests in order to progress. Skillpoints are not earned for the tutorial quests nor for Tier 1 and 2 quests.

    4) Gamestages Based on Time Instead of Actions

    Gamestages will now progress daily instead of as a result of player actions gaining XP. Each game day that the player does not suffer a death they will automatically level up which will, in turn, advance the gamestage. The gamestages multipliers have been modified to help compensate for this slower pace of gamestage advancement as follows:

    Scavenger: 1.5
    Adventurer: 1.8
    Nomad: 2.2
    Warrior: 2.5
    Survivalist: 3.0
    Insane: 3.5

    These are higher rates than vanilla but leveling up now happens once a day at a regular pace which is slower than most players of the vanilla game. Please note that the ONLY function leveling up has is to advance gamestages. Gaining skill points for player progression advancement is completely separate from player level now and there are no experience points in the game at all.

    5) Improved Death Ambiguity

    Because there is no XP there is no XP popout which means no giveaway clue that a zombie died with that last hit. But I took it several steps further by removing death animations from all zombies, replacing the death sound from all zombies with their stun sound, and increasing the range of time they will utilize to recover from a stun. So now when they die it looks and sounds exactly like it does when they are stunned. The only remaining clue is that big yellow bag that sometimes appears....

    6) Increased Zombie Loot Drops

    Since there is no longer xp for killing zombies I increased the loot drop across the board to 8%.


    7) Trader Finder Quests

    All of the treasure map quests will now chain into the White River Settlement Quest from the beginning of the game giving the player a chance to find a new trader. The quest finds the nearest trader to your location which might be a trader you already know but if you are lucky you may get a new trader's location after digging up that treasure chest. How exciting!!!

    8) Brutal Start

    The Newbie protection buff has been removed. There is zero protection from the elements from the get go.

    9) Get off your Brass
    Added a random 0-3 scrap brass drop to destroyed stone. Need brass? Find the ruins of the old world and start digging through it all for that precious metal. This modlet is completely standalone so can be used alone or deleted without causing any issues.

    10) Trolland's Moar Zombies
    Added more zombies to biome spawns as well as larger wandering hordes. Greatly increased nighttime spawns to simulate the lunar influence waking up and causing more zombies to be active. Values are very easy to change if you want to lower or increase the numbers. If you prefer vanilla numbers simply delete this modlet from your mods folder.

    Thanks and Credits

    Thanks to Guppycur, Stompy, Sphereii, and all others who have helped me and continue to help me. Guppycur and Sphereii are responsible for the SDX script and dual timer that makes the daily skill point possible. Sphereii also came up with the script to make this mod truly zero xp. Several others gave me pointers and ran through xpath lines of code with me to help me see what I was missing. Obviously my improved Ambiguous Death mod was inspired by Guppy's own random zombie get back up mod. Special thanks goes to Royal Deluxe who provided me with a simple morning quest in the early development of this idea so I could try it out and see if it was worth pursuing. And Rewtgr....thanks for keeping me sane when nothing I tried would remove the damn level gates on the last night when I was trying to get this pushed out. Thanks to jrbarrio for allowing me to use his work for more outdoor zombies roaming the world. Thanks to Red Eagle for allowing me to use his work to remove the XP bar from the HUD.

    If you feel I should have given you credit in any of this work please let me know. I don't mean to slight anyone and want to make sure to give full credit where it is due. Please feel free to use any part of this compilation for your own projects. I tried to keep things clear so parts could be easily separated out but feel free to ask me if you want to know where the stuff is that does the thing.

    Instructions

    Please note: You must select 0% in the options menu for the xp multiplier. If you have a saved game using the old version where you selected 2% you will unfortunately have to start a new game because for some reason the saved world remembers and you will start earning xp even though you select 0%. If you play at 100% you are showing a lack of understanding about the point of this mod....

    So

    Step 1: Use Sphereii's mod launcher to load my mod.

    Step 2: Remember to select 0% in the main menu options before playing.




    If you are interested in looking at the files or do not wish to use the mod launcher, they are here. You can download the mods folder and replace it with the one in your 7 days to die folder if you want the entire package. Otherwise you can pick and choose the files you wish to use. The skillpoint generator is SDX and so must be compiled. If you don't know how to do this using the SDX launcher then it's best to simply use Sphereii's mod launcher which will do it for you automatically.


    Please Note: If for any reason you are not sure how to do this because you are new to modding but wanted to try out my mod, please send me a pm and I will give step by step instructions to help you get my mod into your computer. People helped spoon feed me as I tried to wrap my brain around xpath and so now it's my turn to pay it forward. I've got a spoon and a big jar of Creamy Pears in my hands just for you.

    For Servers

    Iím not knowledgeable about how to set up servers but here are what others have done to get this mod up and running on a server. Thanks to them for taking the time to explain.

    For Windows:

Also Mod Launcher could possibly be used to generate the files for the headless server. Wine might be used to do all of this without windows, but this has not been tried yet)

    First time tasks:
    1) Load SDX 0.7.3 from https://7daystodie.com/forums/showth...0-7-3-Alpha-17 and unzip it
    2) Start SDX and klick "Settings" and point the "Game Directory" to a directory where you want to store your headless server image
    3) If you get a runtime exception on startup of SDX, edit SDX7DTD.exe.config and insert the line "<loadFromRemoteSources enabled="true"/>" after the line "<runtime>"
    4) Enable or install Microsoft .net framework 3.5 (google for "enable .net framework 3.5" or "install .net framework 3.5" for instructions).

    Tasks whenever a new version of mod or 7D2D is available:
    1) Load newest 0xpmod from https://github.com/Roland7dtd/0XP-Rolmod (green "Clone or Download" button)
    copy the contents of the Mods Folder of 0XP-Rolmod into [SDX DIR]/Targets/7DaysToDie/Mods
    2) Download newest 7D2D headless server image from steam, instructions here: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/...dicated_Server
    For login to steam you can use "login anonymous"
    3) Start SDX
    4) If everything is correct, SDX should show you a list consisting of (currently) "Anti Nerd Poling" and "Skillpoint Generator". Klick "Build" and wait for it to finish
    4a) If you point "Game Directory" to your local copy of 7D2D you can build the libraries for the client too, they will be in [local client]\7DaysToDie_Data\Managed\
    5) Look into [headless server image]\7DaysToDieServer_Data\Managed\. There should be 5 new files: Assembly-CSharp.dll, Mods.dll, Mods.pdb, SDX.Payload.dll, SDX.Core.dll
    6) Copy those 5 files to the respective directory on the server, i.e. 7DaysToDieServer_Data/Managed
    7) Extract 0XP-Rolmod into the server image on the server.
    For Linux

And sure enough, just having the 0XP stuff in the mod folder on the server was enough to get it to run - even made sure I got a skill point for lasting a whole hour!

    So just so long as the client is configured with SDX properly - works just fine.

    As an aside, by NOT uploading the pre-fabs, I was able to keep trader protection in place even though the client is running them.

    Congrats.

    Is the "every 60 minute skill point" affected by 24 cycle setting? Like if you set it to 120min days?

    Oh it will creep up on you. Just when you thought you were out, it will pull you back IN! Welcome to the club, avoid the lemonade Gup is serving. No reason, just avoid it, trust me.

    Good luck on this new venture. Looks real good too. I will give it a spin.

    Holy cow! Walking into this modlet was a brain twist. I like it, totally changed my play style. The only thing more I'd want is more quests/npcs that can give quests. Haha maybe a quest to find/save npcs! This mod opens the game up not only from the sandbox, but for the inspired rpg modders.

    I know for sure Prime has a few more quest types planned but I don't know if they will make it in for A18 or not. But agreed, a ton of quests with great variety will really help this particular mod.

    I remember when I first started playing I kept forgetting that I didn't NEED to kill every zombie. Amazing how the last few alphas have conditioned us to not miss out on any and all possible kills...lol.

    Thanks for trying it out!

    Nice work! I've always wanted to make a daily skill point system but had no idea how to do it. A survival game should be about surviving I like every other features too, but the quests are a bit of a downside to me (at this state). With more variiety it could be awesome tho! Will definitely give it a try!
