Section For Everybody[]

Encountered something else that's a little odd Fox. Every image I've uploaded so far has worked wonders with the crafting grid, I've looked over the template and can't find and answer to why the Bullet Casing image is overflowing like on the 10mm Bullet's crafting table. I've resized the image both ways, up and down but still no joy, am I missing something really obvious? Thanks :) ThunderSniperSteam (talk) 20:39, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Just a quick note to let you know that i uploaded the new icons, but there are still some missing. You probably know better than i do which ones those are, so please let me know of any you need — Game widow (talk) 22:17, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Adding page - Mods[]

Identified as harmful. Text below:

(This page is a stub)

There are numerous Mods created by the 7 Days to Die community. Most of them are regularly updated, and are available for download in the 7 Days to Die official Modding forums (link at the end of this page).

XML Mods[]

These mods only modify the files in .xml format, which gives them the freedom to add new items, new zombies and new blocks, for instance, but these mods do not allow new icons. Often, the modder(s) put more files so the player can import for their less editable files using third-party tools. This requires modding experience and a slight degree of experience to backup vanilla files and manage mod files.

To counter this, many XML mods use a function on their different items called Icon Tinting, which gives vanilla icons a customized color based on a hex code. This saves space and time when modding, and also gives extra

Full Mods[]

These are full-fledged mods which are as customizable as it gets, adding new icons, item descriptions. Usually larger mods, they have .asset files together with new .xml, which are usually with new icons, or new splash backgrounds. These mods are usually also with a better naming system, being able to modify a file called English.data, where all item naming is stored. There is a limitation on items which require books to be unlocked where the naming must follow certain criterias which are sometimes not in line with how an item must named.

Example: Mod "Craftable Beakers by xXxlEgOlAs666xXx" adds a beaker mold recipe when installed, but is locked until the player finds a "Beakers Rock" book. Inside the .xml coding, the beaker mold must be named "beakerMold" to follow all the standards in coding, but in-game, the mold is exactly named like that, instead of "Beaker Mold". To counteract this, xXxlEgOlAs666xXx may need to edit the English.data file to make all items named "beakerMold" in-game the right way.


- Until Alpha 10, there's no way to add new sounds, meshes or animations, which severely brings down the capabilities of modding. Even if a mod, for example, has four different shovels of different materials, all of them will share the same vanilla Shovel mesh.

- There is a limit to how much icons and items a mod can add. If no other vanilla item icons are removed, there is space in the 7 Days to Die files for additional 419 icons. This may or may not be increased/decreased, as the developers progress in adding new items, if the icon atlas file is not enlarged, this means less space for modding. It is currently unknown why there is a limit on additional items, but it probably has something to do with limitations on the Creative mode.

- Add more here.

Hey, a contributor has been adding that the spring is craftable now, although my tests and going through the whole recipes.XML says otherwise, and having reverted his changes he made them again, I'm wondering if any of the other admins can confirm this in case it's just an error with my client. Thanks. — Kuro(User:OOShinigamiOo)[ADMIN] (talk) 16:31, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

I did testing and the only spring mention I could find was for making beds and a shotgun,I checked in game too, I checked with the 7DTD forum and presumably he went onto a server that used a modified XML that overwrote his, I notified him and told him to consider it a warning and that editing the spring page may incur a block, thanks for the checking.— Kuro(User:OOShinigamiOo)[ADMIN] (talk) 19:39, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

I've decided to bring a lot of old articles up to date with the recent build[]

As a lot of old things are now gone or changed considerably, you see.

But I've ran into a block. The Cooking page tells me as such when I attempt to update it; This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed.

(I never bothered making a curse wiki profile till now. Or I think I did actually forget my old one. Either way...

What is it you're trying to do? I think only admins can delete sections - Eichi87 (talk) 10:07, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
