7 Days to Die is an open world, voxel-based, sandbox game that is a unique mash up of First Person Shooter, Survival Horror, Tower Defense and Role Playing Games combining combat, crafting, looting, mining, exploration, and character growth.

In the near future where the a third world war leaves the Earth in ruins but the worst was yet to come. Nobody knows for sure if it was the radiation, the biochemical weapons or an act of god but an unknown virus soon transforms the surviving humans into an army of the animated dead, acting as a single-minded being.

You play a survivor trapped in the savage zombie infested world of Navezgane County Arizona one of the last true Eden’s on Earth. Ironically Navezgane means “Killer of Monsters” to the Apache who have inhabited the land for centuries, and that’s pretty much what you’ll do as you fight to survive and search for the truth behind what really happened.

The Team

The average 7 Days to Die Team member has over 14 years of experience in Game and Software Development working with or for many top companies.

Our team grew from humble beginnings making mods for games and those roots have taken seed. But we haven’t forgotten where we came from and the importance of growing a strong vision with the support and passion of the people we’re making the game for. We want to build more than a game we want to build a community and relationship with our customers taking input, feedback and ideas early on and working them into the game. It’s not just our game is everyone’s game!

We’re too experienced to call indie but still small enough to do the innovative and sometimes risky things that AAA studios are afraid to try. So if you’re with us buckle your seat belts kiddies, grab your pickaxe, compass and knapsack and let’s start kicking some Zombie ass and making some cool ass MacGyver shit!

SteelMod The RPG Overhaul Mod

Updated For Alpha 15!

Whats New

Class Questing

We have added a questing system to the classes now. What this means is when you spawn into your world, you will start with a main class book. From there, you will craft it into one of the ten classes, then read the class quest sheet to begin your journey to mastery.

the block of text from Noah upon first spawn has been altered to guide you on your first steps through SteelMod, so please read it as to not miss out on what to do.


The custom items have been added to the economy with the new addition of vending machines and traders. Now, any player without a certain class can buy class specific items at the seller's discretion. Build, or break, your server economy!

Mod Merger

With the release of SteelMod v6, we no longer have to rely on the "Single Player" and "Co/op Server" versions. Questing for your jobs makes it single player and co/op friendly! Host it on a server, or play it with your best bud, it will run just as it should.

SteelMod v6: Class Overhaul Update


Here are the official notes to summarize all changes for SteelMod v6:

  • Old system of classes has been changed : Player can choose any class starting at level 1, then choose a 2nd and 3rd class at level 50 and 100 for a total of 3 class over the 10 available.
  • You can choose the same class 2 times, But don't do that! Classes do not change depending on the level you choose it from.
  • The names of the 10 class that are available are (in order) : Craftsman, Gunsmith, Mercenary, Chef, Engineer, Survivalist, Doctor, Carpenter, Merchant, Farmer.

SteelMod v6: Class Overhaul Update


*The economy for custom items is an early implementation, and we are already working on 6.1 to make any necessary adjustments to prices. Please feel free to leave any odd pricing finds on our forums in the Bug Section.

- The merchants will be able to sell the custom items in v6.1, as we work on adjustments to economy and add to the trader.xml.

- Please report any issues or bugs on our Forums!

- It is known that you receive a "NullRefException" error upon exiting servers. While it is still being looked into on our end, it is a known game bug, not a mod one.

Stupid question, how do I apply this patch? also, do my friends also need this patch to see this stuff if they play with me?

I'd just started playing and I love the game and I have a 2 questions:

1. MAPS: Is there a way to zoom out completely and see the whole world?
2. CAMERA: Same thing. I'd like to be able to zoom out/in camera a little more, especially out, seeing the character inside the world.

My cousin and I host our own server called the Gankster Squad and are looking for more people to survive the hordes with haha. We usually have 10+ survivors on at most times of the day so there's always people to play with if you get on. We setup our own website, a forums, and a public teamspeak for everyone to use and be able to communicate with. If you play 7 days to die then definitely come play with us.

Server IP=
Port= 26900

You can check out our website here GanksterSquad.com

Been watching this game since it's Kickstarter and just recently checked it out, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It was a lot better than I expected it to be and deserves to be called more than just a Minecraft clone.

First Person only was not the advertisement I paid for, A bit ******, and refusal on refund.

In 8.2 alpha, when you craft multiple items, by clicking on known receipe list, needed materials are removed from inventory and placed on craft grid.

However, if you don't have enough materials for last item then materials are removed from inventory, but item can't be crafted. For example if you have 17 stick and you want to build trap, on first click 9 sticks are removed from inventory and placed on craft grid. On second click, 8 sticks are removed from inventory, but not placed on grid. That 8 sticks are lost in craft process.

Hey pivvott, is the game going to be FTP when it's done?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

No, unfortunately, it's about 25 USD on steam. Still a bit cheaper than minecraft, and more in depth.
