    go back to the game menu, click load and check your current game.
    Is the blood moon enabled?
    Is there a range of days (if there is it might come another day) ?
    Do you use any mods?

    I am using a bicycle mod to make bicycle go a little faster. I don't know about the rest of the settings I'll check on those

    Blood moon is 7 days and range is 7 days? I have never used it but isn't range suppose to be set if you want the BM to be within a certain amount of time of the 7th day. So with a range of 7 it could happen within day 7 to 14?
    I think if you want the BM to be on Day 7, Day 14, Day 21, etc then range has to be 0

    ahhh this is your problem.
    Basicially what this does (as Gamida already explained, although if I am not misinformed it is +- not only +) is that the medium intervall of hordes is 7 days.
    But the range makes it so that it could happen 7days before or 7 days after.
    Basicially Day 1-14 is fair game. And once there was a horde, it starts over the same (say day 13 was the horde it might happen between day 14 and day 27)


    What you want (if you want a predictable horde) to have the range on 0.
    This means every 7th day, there will be a horde.

    Range is actually a nice feature for experienced players, since it introduces a randomness factor where you can't always plan out your cycle (day 1 finding a poi, day 2 farming, day 3 exploration, day 4 upgrading, ...) since you never know when the next horde will strike.

    But for new players, setting it to 0 is prefered.

    Have fun ^_^

    Viktoriusiii, I was thinking same thing but when you mouse over the info for range it says...

    "Set a random range that blood moons will happen. 0 is off.
    3 would mean a blood moon can happen up to 3 days later than normal"
    I was also thinking what happens if you put in a larger number than 7. Will it then happen from day 1 to day 20 if you put 13 in there. I think there needs to be a bit more explanation on how it works exactly.

    I have a 5 day range... and I am certain that I got one after 3 days...
    MAYBE I misremember... its over a month ago now... but I'm fairly certain I was incredibly surprised by how early it came.

    But yeah... official confirmation/explanation or code scouting would be nice
