  1. 1) The first thing you want to do, as with most mods is to create your mods folder structure, use the image below as a reference, replacing MOD_NAME with the name of your mod: Don't worry about the files shown above, you will be creating them as you follow this guide, just make sure to remember, anytime you see "MOD_NAME" in this guide, replace that with the name you chose for your mod. 2) In your "..mods/MOD_NAME" folder, create your "mod.info" text file which contains the following code: Remember to replace all "MOD_NAME"'s with the actual name of your mod. 3) In the same folder, create/place your MOD_NAME.png , this will be the thumbnail used in game as the poster/picture for your mod. 4) Next up, in your "mods/MOD_NAME/media/lua/client" folder, create your MOD_NAME.lua file with the following code inside: This is the script that will load your model and scripts into the game, it also controls the spawn rate for the car in each type of zone as well as providing the vehicle mechanic overlay. Remember to replace all instances of "MOD_NAME" with the actual name you chose for your mod. 5) Next, in your "mods/MOD_NAME/media/scripts/vehicles" folder, create your MOD_NAME.txt file containing the following code: This script example contains all of the parameters to control the simulation of the vehicle, such as engine power, gear ratios, collision cube and much more. You will (hopefully) find it well commented to give you an idea of what each parameter does. You can look in the games "media\scripts\vehicles" folder for a vanilla vehicle script that more closely reflects the vehicle you are adding rather than starting with the example above, have a good look through them all to get a sense of the different templates you can use and the various changes that can be made to different components. 6) Now you need to (if you have not already) make the 3d model for your vehicle. We suggest using Blender, but as long as you're experienced in 3d modelling, any program that can export .ply files should work, just make sure your faces are triangulated, in Blender you can do this by selecting your model in Edit mode then pressing Ctrl + T. Then drag and drop the exported ply file onto the converter supplied below (unzip the below file, drag your .ply directly onto the .exe, do not double click the exe), it will output a new txt file with the same name as the .ply in the same directory. Copy the new .txt file into your "mods/MOD_NAME/media/models" folder as "Vehicles_MOD_NAME.txt This is the .ply to PZ convertor: PZ_PLYtoPZconverter.zip 7) Now it's time to create your vehicles texture files, these should all go into the "mods/MOD_NAME/media/textures/Vehicles" folder. First up is your "Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Shell.png" , this is the main texture image for your vehicle and needs to be 512x512 pixels, as do all of your textures, below is an example: Next there are 6 different overlay/detail png's to create, the first is for the vehicle lights ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Lights.png"): Then the vehicle rust ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Rust.png"): The next 2 image examples ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Shell_Damaged01.png" and "Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Shell_Damaged02.png") are to show light and heavy damage, respectively, on the vehicle's shell. They are used to represent dents in the bodywork: The next 2 image examples ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Overlays_Damaged01.png" and "Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Overlays_Damaged02.png") are very similar to the previous 2 except they are for showing damage on windows and lights as well as scratched on the body work: The last file we need is the vehicle colour mask ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Mask.png"), which should also be placed in your "mods/MOD_NAME/media/textures/Vehicles" folder. This tells the game which parts of your vehicle texture correspond to which part of your vehicle model and is needed to display damage, lowered windows and removed elements etc: Here the colour values to be used: Copy your complete mod folder structure into your C:\Users\YourUsernameHere\Zomboid\Mods folder, load the game, turn the mod on in the mod menu and start a new game, your new vehicle is now ready to be found and taken for a spin. Finally, here: ZAZ968M.zip - you can find an example vehicle mod using the above instructions. Notice the included example mod uses a slightly different process with its textures/overlays. The main texture is transparent while the detail has been shifted onto the vehicle_lights .png. This allows the game to automatically and procedurally generate different colours of your car when they are spawned in. Happy Modding!
  2. Download and install CartoZed from here: https://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php?/topic/21633-cartozed/ Follow the instructions in the above thread to create a top down image of your map mod (or any map mod), I created a copy of and renamed the default theme and removed all the trees, vegetation and walls options within to create the look I wanted for my map. Try it yourself, create a new theme and add/remove or edit different options to create different looks. Next, create the following file structure (if you are adding the lootable map to your own map mod then create all folders within the media folder below in your map mods media folder instead): Spoiler MyLootableMapsMod >media >>lua >>>server >>>>Items >scripts >ui >>LootableMaps Once you have finished editing your lootable map image you extracted using CartoZed (I simply copy and pasted one of the keys from one of the official lootable maps found in "steamapps\common\ProjectZomboid\media\ui\LootableMaps" and then area filled each building the corresponding colour) save it in your LootbaleMaps folder as a png file with a name like "MyLootableMap" or "FictitiousTownMap" etc. Next up create a .txt file in the scripts folder called something like "mylootablemap" (except make it more unique to avoid any possible compatability issues with other mods that might use the same names), it should include this code: Spoiler module Base { item MyLootableMap { Type = Normal, DisplayName = Your map name here, Icon = Map, Weight = 0.1, Map = media/ui/LootableMaps/MyLootableMap.png, SurvivalGear = TRUE, WorldStaticModel = Map, } } The above code is adding a new item with the internal name "MyLootableMap" (so again make sure your's is something unique) into the vanilla pool of items, the above settings work for maps, just make sure the "Map = " line is pointed to your lootable map png. The last file you need you will want to create in the "media\lua\server\Items" folder, call it something like MyLootableMapDistribution.lua but again make it's a unique name to avoid any possible mod imcompatability with other mods. It should contain the following code: Spoiler local function preDistributionMerge() table.insert(ProceduralDistributions.list.MagazineRackMaps.items, "MyLootableMap"); table.insert(ProceduralDistributions.list.MagazineRackMaps.items, 50); end Events.OnPreDistributionMerge.Add(preDistributionMerge); In the above code you can see that we are adding our new Item "MyLootableMap" into the "MagazineRackMaps" loot table inside of ProceduralDistributions.lua, this will affect any roomDef of any building that pulls from the MagazineRackMaps loot table. We are doing it this way as the definition we want to add to has the "procedural" tag in Distributions.lua and is therefore using the procedural loot tables. The number 50 is the "weight" of the item you are adding, higher number = more chance. To find the current room and container definitions, navigate to your "steamapps\common\ProjectZomboid\media\lua\server\Items" folder and open the Distributions.lua file. If the definition you want to add your item to is not procedural (does not have the "procedural = true" line) then you want to add this code instead of the above code: Spoiler local myMapdistributionTable = { all = { shelves = { rolls = 5, items = { "Magazine", 20, "Newspaper", 20, "Book", 20, "SheetPaper2", 20, "Notebook", 20, "BookTailoring1", 2, "BookTailoring2", 1, "BookTailoring3", 0.7, "BookTailoring4", 0.5, "BookTailoring5", 0.3, "BookCarpentry1", 2, "BookCarpentry2", 1, "BookCarpentry3", 0.7, "BookCarpentry4", 0.5, "BookCarpentry5", 0.3, "BookCooking1", 2, "BookCooking2", 1, "BookCooking3", 0.5, "BookCooking4", 0.3, "BookForaging1", 2, "BookForaging2", 1, "BookForaging3", 0.7, "BookForaging4", 0.5, "BookForaging5", 0.3, "BookFarming1", 2, "BookFarming2", 1, "BookFarming3", 0.7, "BookFarming4", 0.5, "BookFarming5", 0.3, "BookFishing1", 2, "BookFishing2", 1, "BookFishing3", 0.7, "BookFishing4", 0.5, "BookFishing5", 0.3, "BookTrapping1", 2, "BookTrapping2", 1, "BookTrapping3", 0.7, "BookTrapping4", 0.5, "BookTrapping5", 0.3, "BookFirstAid1", 2, "BookFirstAid2", 1, "BookFirstAid3", 0.7, "BookFirstAid4", 0.5, "BookFirstAid5", 0.3, "BookMetalWelding1", 2, "BookMetalWelding2", 1, "BookMetalWelding3", 0.7, "BookMetalWelding4", 0.5, "BookMetalWelding5", 0.3, "BookElectrician1", 2, "BookElectrician2", 1, "BookElectrician3", 0.7, "BookElectrician4", 0.5, "BookElectrician5", 0.3, "BookMechanic1", 2, "BookMechanic2", 1, "BookMechanic3", 0.7, "BookMechanic4", 0.5, "BookMechanic5", 0.3, "FishingMag1", 1, "FishingMag2", 1, "HuntingMag1", 1, "HuntingMag2", 1, "HuntingMag3", 1, "HerbalistMag", 1, "FarmingMag1", 1, "CookingMag1", 1, "CookingMag2", 1, "ElectronicsMag1", 1, "ElectronicsMag2", 1, "ElectronicsMag3", 1, "ElectronicsMag4", 1, "ElectronicsMag5", 1, "MechanicMag1", 1, "MechanicMag2", 1, "MechanicMag3", 1, "EngineerMagazine1", 1, "EngineerMagazine2", 1, "MetalworkMag1", 1, "MetalworkMag2", 1, "MetalworkMag3", 1, "MetalworkMag4", 1, "Journal", 2, "Radio.RadioBlack",2, "Radio.RadioRed",1, "MyLootableMap", 50, } }, } } table.insert(Distributions, 2, myMapdistributionTable); This would add your map to the existing "all>shelves" definitions, which would be every shelves container in the game world not inside a roomdef defined inside Distributions.lua, so for example your map would not spawn on shelves that are placed inside a "bookstore" room def as that room def already exists in Distributions.lua with a rule for shelves. And that's it, copy your entire folder structure into your "C:\Users\YourUserNameHere\Zomboid\Mods" folder, load up the game, enable the mod (Your map mod if you made your lootable maps as part of a map mod) and start a new game, you now have your lootable map in game and waiting for you to find. If you need a working example you can always subscribe to Bedford Falls on Steam and check it's workshop folder "steamapps\workshop\content\108600\522891356" . It's handy to verify your folder/file structure etc if you're having problems.
  3. Hello and welcome to my tutorial. It covers full workflow of vehicle creation for PZ. If you are a complete beginner in 3D modelling, you'll have to watch/read additional tutorials, I won't cover every aspect of model creation and 'where this button is located'. I divide vehicle creation in these stages: 1) Modelling 2) Wheels texture and modelling 3) Texturing 4) Packing files in folders 5) Editing scripts and .lua 6) In-game editing and tests 7) Workshop publish STAGE 1 - MODELLING Today I am creating a 1960 Ford Falcon I prefer using blender as it is my everyday 3d modelling software. Now, find references for your vehicle and ideally it will be a blueprint/outline scheme, like this one: There are some tips in modelling for PZ: 1) Do not care too much about topology and good shading. There is no actual shading in game, only windows have reflections. 2) Avoid n-gons or triangulate them before export 3) DO NOT make edges to outline body panels/parts. All dividing of parts will be done with texture mask. You can do it in UVs if there will be a point for that. 4) Place spindiel imitations in wheel wells to hide rear part of wheel models 5) In the UVs parts of body have to be straight-oriented without any non-90 degrees rotation, so pixels in texture will lay parallel with polygon flow. 6) To avoid physics artifacts in game import model of one of vanilla game cars models to your scene and model in consistent scale. Or import mine, that is available in the end of topic. This is what I consider a well done model There is nothing special in UV unwrapping process, just remember to place the least amount of seams possible and keep island aligned. Here are the UVs of my model: I've unwrapped the model without applied mirror modifier, so now we will have to texture just one half of the car. I'll fix mirroring later. STAGE 2 - WHEELS There are many ways to make a wheel and texture it, but I'll show the most efficient one. Make the wheel's face with simple materials, but unwrap the 'road touching part' to flat surface, like this: Then place an orthographic camera facing the wheel, scale it to fit the whole wheel-dish. Place a ring with emission material to light the wheel. Switch your renderer to Cycles and go to camera view, now use a rendered shading mode to adjust materials and lights to your taste. Set rendering resolution to something like 120x120-175-175 for best results Check the 'transparent' box in film settings to have alpha backround in texture: Now increase the sample count to something like 512-1024 and hit render. You will end up with a result of a ready-to-go wheel texture: The example file with scene for rendering and the model of this wheel you can download here: *google drive .blend file* Now make a lowpoly model of the wheel to use this texture on. I prefer using 18-24 edge circles for wheels. The unwrapping will be later, but eventually you'll end up with this: This method takes 10-15 minutes when you get used to it and gives a stunning and clear result. STAGE 3 - TEXTURING NOTE: I use a pretty complicated way of texturing and adding light to model. All rules of using textures the default way are covered in "HOW TO CREATE NEW VEHICLE MODS" topic by RingoD123, one of PZ devs. You can access it here: *boop* I'll show you my way, using Substance Painter to apply lighting and fake chrome parts to model. But first comes the base color and details of the car, so let's dive into it. Create a texture with 0 alpha and resolution 256x256. You can go for 512x512, but personally I like pixelated look of lo-res texture. Here are the settings for initial image: To preview the texture you are painting with different car colors, use this node setup. But switch filtering mode from "Linear" to "Closest", I forgot to do it on screenshot. There are two types of texture details: somewhat transparent and absolutely opaque. Half-transparent parts will be affected by car color, so they are mostly shadow/highlight details. Headlights, fixtures and things like that have to be opaque and painted with 100% brush hardness. It is easier to keep 3d view just to see what are you doing and paint texture in image editing mode, right there: First, paint the outlines of doors and other opening parts. Here are some brush hardness values: 0.2 - Outline shadow 0.5 - Outline 1.0 - Fake chrome and rubber window sealing Some work in progress screenshots Now when you have windows frames, save the image you just painted and go to photoshop and mask out glass sections like that Well, time for Substance Painter. You can use photoshop gradients for windows and blender lighting for lighting of the body, but I'll use SP "Baked lighting" filter for that, and for chrome especially. I will briefly describe what I've done in SP: 1) Mask out windows, give them mirror metal material and add a filter to them 2) Mask out chrome parts, made them mirror metal and added the same filter with slightly different settings. 3) Apply the same filter to all body parts left. 4) Add a position gradient to the windows Now I have this result, it is not shaded model, just basecolor: Also export the AO map you baked in SP. You can download file with this scene to look through and get ideas using this link: *boop* Now paint additional details you want on the car and open Photoshop. This is your layers layout: Now save it as .psd for future color editing and as .png to see what the you've done. Plug .png direcly as BaseColor in shader settings. Set your shading setting like this: And check if everything looks ok. This is my result: And this is the vehicle's look with wheels that we made before Sweet, isn't it? Now, it is time to get rid of mirroring. You can make new UV, bake it and... get A LOT of offset artifacts resulting in jagged pixel edges. There is a lazy but effective method: 1) In the UV editor place cursor in the 0,0 coordinates. 2) Set Pivot to 2D cursor: 3) Scale all UV islands to 0.5 EXACTLY 4) Apply mirror modifier to your model. Now select FACES of any half of the model and move it in UVs on Y by value 0.5 EXACTLY or you'll eventually mess everything up. 5) In Photoshop expand canvas of your PSD file we made before 6) Duplicate everything and move to the upper left corner, like in UVs. You can merge color layer(s) to operate color on export more easily. Now you have half of the texture empty... You do not want to waste it, right? Then drop in the wheel texture here without scaling, and you won't need additional texture file for it! 7) Create a layer beneath all others and paint it black or grey to cover alpha-holes in the textures. 8 ) Now unwrap the wheel to this new texture and let it shine! We painted the car and fixed mirroring. DOWNLOAD THE .PSD FILE: *bloop* There are 3 more types of textures to make: 1) Rust 2) Damage (1 or 2 levels, I'm lazy, I prefer using single one) 3) ID Color Mask or just Mask It wasn't possible to make them right with mirroring. Everything about these textures are explained clearly in Ringo's guide, again: *boop* I'll just show results I ended up with. Now you have to use 512x512 clear images for these textures, do not forget it. RUST Painted it with jitter brush and 0.2 hardness. To see what I am doing used the same node setup, as for base texture. DAMAGE Painted gradients with black and white with 0.1 hardess with repetitive strokes. MASK Mask texture tells game where are separate parts of car: doors, windows, lights and others. Every part has it's own color in palette, you can find color table in Ringo's guide. Copy and paste color HEX to use it in blender brush or fill tools. I've missed some of the parts because they do not really matter. AEUGH Texturing is finished. Go to photoshop and make all color variations you want and save them as .png, name them Vehicles_[vehicle name]_ Vehicle name mustn't containt spaces These are color palettes of my car: Now you have to export your vehicle body and wheel models. Copy them to an empty scene and save as separate file. If you used blender default orientations (front, back, right, left, top), then rotate the car on Z axis by 180 degrees. Game rotates it for some reason, so you'll have to do it. Now position everything in scene like this and continue to export settings. Export body and wheel separately with these settings: STAGE 5 - Packing files in folders The folder hierarchy and naming the files you can find in Ringo's guide. The mod file and all of my project files you will be able to download in the end of this topic. make up an Id name for your car. It has to be short, but unique and do not contain spaces. For this car I use '60falcon'. _____________________________________________ workshop.txt properties of the mod for Steam Workshop _____________________________________________ mod.info properties of the mod for in-game mod menu _____________________________________________ models_X folder -> vehicles this folder contains 3d meshes of the vehicle - body and wheel _____________________________________________ textures -> vehicles easy to guess, all vehicle textures are placed here null.png - completely transparent image, used as placeholder later on _____________________________________________ scripts -> vehicles there shoud be a .txt file named with you vehicle's ID name. Open it up and follow these instructions: change invertX to 'TRUE' if vehicle appears to be mirrored by left and right in game. Do not care about scale, offset and other geometric parameters. Insert all your color variation textures as shown below: All vehicle driving parameters are self-explanatory. Remember to set seats count, I'm creating a car with 4 seats. If you want to make less seats or add new, delete passenger[Seat code] records or add new. Also remember Seat[position] records down below. Add or delete the templates, loaded from Game default files: _____________________________________________ LUA SCRIPTS lua -> server -> vehicles -> [car id name]dis.lua Vehicle trunk type distribution file. There is a file with all vehicle distribution types in game files, I'll put it in project folder in the end if the article. This is game files distibution types, select one of them in respect to the vehicle type you are creating. I'll use CarNormal type for Ford Falcon. This is what distribution lua file has to be: _____________________________________________ lua -> shared -> [car id name]SpawnList.lua This file describes spawn zones of your car in game world with certain chance. I've typed in all default zones of spawn, you just have to change the chance and set [Base.60falcon] to [Base.(your car id name)] _____________________________________________ lua -> shared -> Translate -> EN -> IG_UI_EN.txt This is the name of the car in UI - keys name, mechanics window name and such. STAGE 6 - In-game editing and tests Launch PZ and disable all mod exept the one you will be debugging. Now close the game and go to Steam. In application setting set startup parameter to -debug It enables many debug options in-game. Now launch the Game again and, if menu doesn't appear, you've done something wrong in lua scripts. Check them for probles, and I hope, you'll figure out what is wrong. Now start a new game in world with no zombies and big amount of cars. Leave the house and find any car vibing in the street. Right click, -> Vehicle -> Set Script -> [your car ID name]. Car will switch to yours. This is what I've got on first time in-game spawning: YEET, it is all coming along. But wheel positions are a bit off, and we have to place the entering areas of doors. Go to Right click on car -> [DEBUG] Vehicle -> Vehicle Editor. Chassis Place extents and physics shape to outline the car Areas These are access areas to different parts of the car. There is nothing to describe, really, just place them where you can explain it and continue to next section Right click in mechanics tab to enable cheat options for the car. Now right click in mechanics panel. Here you can get key for that car or repair it. Final result in different variations Make a suitable preview image for your mod and crop it in Photoshop to 256x256. Place it in mod folder as preview.png In game menu go WORKSHOP -> create or update mod -> Go to your profile workshop items and find the new mod. Add the description, more screenshots and set visibility to 'Public' ALL PROJECT FILES: *YEET* ZE END Congratulations if you followed my guide to this point. Comment any issues or mistakes I've made.
  4. As title says, unable to sleep more than once per game session. Restarting game allows me to sleep once more, then unable to sleep again until next restart.
  5. Since version introduced a nifty modloader to the game, mods have now their own folder. This means no more cluttered folders aswell as easy installing and uninstalling of mods!!! Windows (please correct me you windows folks^^) Go to your Zomboid folder C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Zomboid\Find the /mods folder (it should contain an examplemod folder already).Drag and drop the unzipped mod into this folder.Start the game and select the mod in the Mod-Options screen.Reboot and have funMac OSGo to your Zomboid folder /Users/YOURUSERNAME/ZomboidFind the /mods folder (it should contain an examplemod folder already).Drag and drop the unzipped mod into this folder.Start the game and select the mod in the Mod-Options screen.Reboot and have funLinux Coming soon ... Uninstalling mods Simply remove the respective mods from the /mods folder or remove them from the ingame mod-options screen.
  6. Update 11/3 Hey guy! This is now working on the stable branch! Hey dudes, I finally got the compilation of my cars completed, plus a few extra. I've got all the masks working, although the damage textures are kinda half-assed. The script files are fine tuned (for the most part). But yeah, hope ya guys enjoy! Link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filed etails/?id=1510950729 I owe a HUGE thanks to Fenris_Wolf of ORGM Rechambered for helping with, well, all the lua files, haha. I'm as good as code illiterate, so without him, this wouldn't have gone anywhere. Car list:
  7. So, I play Solo most of the time, and let's just say that i suck at this game and die often, i do have the cheat menu etc installed so i CAN use god mode but i find that too booring, so instead i tried the "prevent death" option, which only heals you up if you ALMOST die, when the health reaches 0 it heals you + removed any damages etc. What I want, is a modification that does the same as "prevent death" BUT instead of healing me back to normal, i want the health to freeze at let's say 1, i.e I won't be able to die, but i still need to heal every wound to get back to full health, is this possible? If so any file i can modify? Cheers!
  8. Figured out, need this deleted.
  9. So I had an Idea for a mod, because I want to do some gaming and maybe some Twitch streams/Youtube in the coming year. I'm looking for someone who wants to make it or who knows how to because I've never made a mod and would need a lot of help to make it myself. I used to play Resident Evil Outbreak when it came out (As I'm sure most zombie fans did) and 2 things I have always wanted: 1. A Remake (And I have some hope with the remakes we have been seeing so fingers crossed!) And 2. An open world Resident Evil Game. So I've been playing PZ under the sandbox to try and recreate the Raccoon City Incident by changing the settings and so far it has been very enjoyable and I feel I'm pretty close to a classic Raccoon City Apocalypse. I have had a lot of fun so far and I think it could be an amazing experience. But I'm missing 2 very important things for the experience to be complete: 1. A Mod that effects how the virus kills you and adds items related to that. TL:DR Virus fills a meter from attacks and over time, when at 100% you become the zombies. Can be stopped temporarily with certain medical items, some craftable. Typically once infected you know that it's over and that you will die in X days. No ifs ands or buts, no delays. The change would be to make the infection follow a gauge that could be checked under the health menu, from 0.00% to 100.00% Like in the RE:Outbreak Games. Once attacked by a zombie and injured your gauge would increase 10% for a scratch or 30% for a bite, then the gauge would steadily increase by 1% per real world hour (1 In game day) Alternatively, you could start infected and then it would slowly increase by 1% per in game day and then jump up when attacked as before, giving you a soft limit of 100 days. The infection could be TEMPORARILY paused by using some items: (Times listed are in real world time, not in game time) 1 Green Herb stops the meter for 10 Minutes, Painkillers and Mixed Herb (G/G) stop the meter for 15 Minutes, Mixed Herb (G/G/G) or 1 Blue Herb can stop the meter for 20 Minutes, Mixed Herb (R/G) can stop the meter for 30 Minutes, Antibiotics and Mixed Herb (R/G/B) stops the meter for 45 minutes, Anti Virus Pill stops the meter for 50 minutes, Antivirus Pill (L) stops it for 1hour 30 minutes. Green, Red and Blue herbs can be found rarely in the forest zones (In order of rarity) by foraging, the Green or Red can be used to disinfect wounds and the Blue one can also fight normal wound infections. The Herbs can be mixed with each other and to make pills IF you have a high enough medical skill and some supplies: Some recipes I have thought of: Combining the Herbs into R/G and R/G/B mixes. No skills needed, but will need 1 mortar and pestle and 1 piece of paper alongside the herbs. Gives a moderate amount of Medical experience. To Make a basic Anti-Virus Pill: Medical LVL 3 or 5 Tools: Mortar and pestle, Heat Source (Lighter/Matches, campfire, lit stove or grill), a Spoon One Of: Vitamins, Painkillers, Empty Pill Casings (Item would need to be part of mod) One Mixed Herb (R/G) To Make an Anti-Virus (L) Pill: Medical LVL 5 or 7 Tools:Mortar and Pestle, Large Heat Source (campfire, lit stove or grill), a Sauce pan/Frying Pan/Pot/Baking Pan/Roasting Pan One Antibiotics One Mixed Herb (R/G/B) Makes 2 pills Now the important thing is that these pills won't stop wound based increases from zombies, and they do not reverse the gauge at all. You will eventually succumb, just a matter of how/when. 2. And the second thing needed for it would be an advanced customizable zombies mod. There are some mods out there that offer bits and pieces of what I'm looking for but none that offer the full package and most conflict when installed together. TL:DR A mod to store zombie 'templates' and have a way to control each templates spawn rate. Each template would store their senses strengths, physical stats and speed stat, it would also allow them to be dressed in a specific way on spawn. Basically I need a mod that would allow templates to be created much like how the zombie population can be customized in sandbox. The template would include: Zombie stats like: Strength, Speed, sight, hearing, smell and Durability multipliers. The multipliers would go from 0.1 - 20.0 times the regular population stats. Appearance including whether they are a skeleton or not and what clothing they wear. The percentage of the population they would spawn in as from 0.00001% -100.00% I'm hoping to be able to make templates for the major BOWs from REs 2/3 and maybe some of the others. ---------- For example MR X could be like: (Assuming zombies are set to normal where applicable) Strength 5.0 Speed 1.3 (On fast shamblers setting) Sight 2.0 Hearing 5.0 Smell 2.0 Durability 10.0 Wears : Leather Long coat (Black) Black Hat Black Pants Military Boots (Black) Leather Gloves (Black) Percentage: 0.001% ------- While a Hunter Beta would be like: Strength 3.0 Speed 2.0 Sight 1.0 Hearing 2.0 Smell 7.0 Durability 2.0 (3.5 for remake version) Wears: Skeleton form Ghillie suit Percentage: 0.02 So If anyone knows some mods that work together and allow these kind of features, or knows how to make it or wants to, I'd love to hear about it! Happy new Year everyone, hopefully it will be a bit better than 2020.

  11. Hi, i encountered this bug, when i wanted to add another mod to my already running game. When you click on the "choose mods" button when loading the game, you get an empty screen (only the background picure of the game still exists). Now, this bug doesnt happen, if you clicked atleast once on the "Mods" button in the main menu before attempting to do this (once per game start is enough). As i found out, the reason for this is, that the game tries to display a box with text, using a function that does not exist. In the file "ISModsNagPanel.lua" in the location Steam\steamapps\common\ProjectZomboid\media\lua\client\OptionScreens in line 32: self.richText:setText(getText("UI_ModsNagPanel_Text")) The function "setText" doesnt exist. Replacing it with: self.richText.text=(getText("UI_ModsNagPanel_Text")) fixes the problem.
  12. Years ago Eudoxio created the server Death & Decay for Project Zomboid. It was a heavy role playing server that managed to bring together an amazing community of players, stories, and memories. Sadly due to financial instability, Eudoxio had to close the server back in 2017 after 2 years of running. Since then I've decided to get back touch with him. especially with animations being right around the corner: and asked if I could personally take over the server and reopen it with a new host and he was happy to contribute and bring this wonderful server back to life. So without further ado! Death & Decay: Sunrise Hello everyone and welcome back to the 5th season of Death & Decay! I know what you're thinking and yes it has been a while.. No we're not dead, In fact we're alive and better than ever! So we hope to see you soon, Survivors! Server Information IP: | Build: 40.43 Server restart times: Server Location: Server Language: English/Spanish Season 5 start date: Player slots: Discord: https://discord.gg/R8XHESC Forums: http://deathanddecay.boards.net/ _________________________________________________________________________ Server Rules: (OOC) Usernames: Please refrain from using usernames that are too complicated or use symbols. Keep it simple! Use a name suited for Roleplaying. No Metagaming: If you get some information from the forum or the discord, your character doesn't know what you know! Please play it as such. If you die and change your character, find a story on how you "found" your current living location as is. Dont "Kill On Sight" (KOS): Don't just kill someone after running up to them - if you get the itch for murder, you can find plenty of legitimate reasons to shoot at people. If you have a problem with someone, signal the staff and we'll resolve the problem. Griefing is Not Allowed: Don't break other people's stuff for no reason! Have a heart. Stealing: Stealing is allowed but only in character, so leave a note hinting you did it. That way people could play as detectives if they wanted! Be Respectful of Others: Use your judgment when playing your character. Don't go over the line. We're all here to have fun after all! Role Playing Rules: (IC) Use *R* when speaking in global chat: Putting *R* before what you type indicated to other people that you're speaking on the global radio. Use (parentheses) when speaking OOC: Try to keep the OOC (Out Of Character) chat to a minimum in game, but it's completely normal to have to say something 'Out Of Character' at some point. Use parentheses when you do so. Try to stay in character: We're not always asking for extremely deep storylines, but try to have at least SOME idea of who your character is, what they were before the apocalypse, how they survived up to where they are now. _________________________________________________________________________ We've come to the decision after a lot of thought that the sever should have brand new lore, and a new world. Seasons 1-4 were amazing and refreshing but Eudoxio and I thought it'd be nice for a new approach.. New Server Lore 6 months ago there was a mass epidemic, it spread through the world without notice for weeks and when top scientists realized what was happening it was already far to late. Originating from Japan, the virus quickly became airborne and spread globally.. Before long the Military had lost most of it's force, and major towns and cities were soon overrun and quarantined by what little troops remained. What was left afterwards was global destruction, cars piled on streets, bodies filling lakes and rivers, and entire city population decimated in days.. However before the collapse of civilization a cure was produced and released but only made it to a few city's military, never fully released to the public. _________________________________________________________________________ I also wanted to add as a side note that we are in fact planning on updating to the latest release (Animations), whenever that release may happen. We will be wiping the map, and removing all mods/maps due to potential issues regarding stability and performance. (We will be keeping the lore/character names if you'd like to continue your stories!) Once mods/maps are updated, and if they all work together well. We will be adding them back into the server. _________________________________________________________________________ New Server Mods & Maps (Necroforge & Cheatmenu are for staff) Mods: Hydrocraft ORGM Improved Build Menu Simple Food Spawn Organized Storage Hair Styles Global Radios Rename Weapons Zombie Cure Medical Cocktail ORGM Suppressor Blind Trait MoreBuild Crematorium Wedge's Item Name Fixes NecroForge Cheatmenu Maps: Bedford Falls, Drayton Rebuild, Phoenix, South Muldraugh, Eerie Country, Lake Ivy, Over The River, Fetzen's East Muldraugh Nature Reserve. _________________________________________________________________________ Server Settings (Yeah there's a lot..) nightlengthmodifier=1.0 | PauseEmpty=true SafetySystem=true | ShowSafety=true SpawnItems=Nothing | HoursForLootRespawn=150 MaxItemsForLootRespawn=8 | ConstructionPreventsLootRespawn=true NoFireSpread=true | NoFire=false MinutesPerPage=0.2 | HoursForCorpseRemoval=240 PlayerSafehouse=true | SafehouseAllowTrepass=true SafehouseAllowFire=false | SafehouseAllowLoot=false SafehouseAllowRespawn=true | SafehouseDaySurvivedToClaim=12 SafeHouseRemovalTime=500 | AllowDestructionBySledgehammer=true SleepAllowed=true | sleepNeeded=false MaxAccountsPerUser=0 Day Length: 4 Hours | Start Month: June Start Day: 5 | Start Time: 5AM Water Shutoff: 2-6 Months | Electricity Shutoff: 2-6 Months House Alarm Frequency: Sometimes | Locked Houses Frequency: Rare Food Spoilage: Normal | Refrigerator Effectiveness: Normal Rotten Food Removal: -1 | Loot Respawn: Every 2 months Loot Seen Prevent Hours: 720 | Months Since Apocalypse: 0 Darkness During Night: Dark | Fire Spread: Off Generator Working In Exterior: On | Temperature: Normal Rain: Normal | Erosion Speed: (100 days) Erosion Days: 0 | Farming Speed: Normal Plant Resilience: Normal | Farming's Abundance: Normal Nature's Abundance: Normal | Compost Time: 2 Weeks Maximum Fog Intensity: Normal | Maximum Rain FX Intensity: Normal Enable Snow On Ground: Yes | Helicopter: Once Meta Event: Sometimes |Sleeping Event: Sometimes Generator Spawn: Rare | Generator Fuel Consumption: 0.5 Randomized House Chance: Rare | Annotated Map Chance: Sometimes Time Before Corpse Removal: -1 | Decaying Corpse Health Impact: Normal Blood Level: Normal | Food: Rare Weapon: Rare | Other: Rare XP Multiplier: 1.0 | Stats Decrease: Normal Endurance Regeneration: Normal | Nutrition: Yes Starter Kit: Nothing | Free Trait Points: 0 Player Built Construction Strength: Normal | Injury Severity: Normal Bone Fracture: Yes | Enable Vehicle: Yes Easy Use: No | Recent Survivor Vehicles: Low Zombie Attraction Multiplier: 1.0 | Car Spawn Rate: Low Chance Has Gas: Low | Initial Gas: Low Gas Consumption: 1.0 | Locked Frequency: Rare General Condition: Very Low | Car Wreck Congestion: Yes Car Alarms Frequency: Extremely Rare | Player Damaged From Crash: Yes Car Damage On Impact: Low | Siren Shutoff Hours: 0.0 Damage To Player Hit By Car: None | Clothing Degradation: Normal Speed: Fast shamblers | Strength: Normal Toughness: Normal | Transmission: Blood + Saliva Infection Mortality: 2-3 days | Reanimate Time: 0-12 hours Cognitive: Basic Navigation | Memory: Normal Decomposition: Slows + Weakens | Sight: Normal Hearing: Normal | Smell: Normal Environmental attacks: Yes | Damage construction: Yes Day/Night active: Both | Zombie triggering house alarms: Yes Speed: Fast Shamblers | Strength: Normal Toughness: Normal | Transmission: Blood + Saliva Infection Mortality: 2-3 Days | Reanimate Time: 0-12 Hours Cognitive: Basic Navigation | Memory: Normal Decomposition: Slows + Weakens | Sight: Normal Hearing: Normal | Smell: Normal Environmental Attacks: Yes | Damage Constructs: Yes Day/Night Active: Both | Zombie House Alarm Triggering: Yes Population Multiplier: 2.0 | Population Start Multiplier: 0.5 Population Peak Multiplier: 3.0 | Population Peak Day: 260 Respawn Hours: 72.0 | Respawn Unseen Hours: 16.0 Respawn Multiplier: 0.1 | Redistribute Hours: 12.0 Follow Sound Distance: 100 | Rally Group Size: 20 Rally Travel Distance: 20| Rally Group Separation: 15 Rally Group Radius: 3
  13. when I click on the mods button in the main menu nothing happens except for a small red box in the bottom right corner pops up and just counts the number of times that I click on the mods button. In videos on YouTube I don't see this happening to anyone else. It's crazy frustrating.

  17. Hi, Friends and I are running a private server. We have a few mods on which work perfectly fine but when we tried to add modded maps the dialog box shows up for anyone that tries to join to download the modded map files / used cars mod but the actual maps or used cars are no where to be seen. We are however able to find a map item for one of the new places... Anyone know what's going on?

  18. Hi all, I thought I would make a new thread on here to post any updates to the server that I am making. These include things like mod installs, mod updates, PZ updates etc. It can also be a place for any suggestions to how the server can be improved. The details for the server are; Server Name - M700N UK Server [PVE] IP Address - Port - 16261 The mods that I currently have installed to the latest update are; Cremation, Hydrocraft, Movable Fridges and Electric Lights. M700N
  19. Hi, first of all, this is my first post. Funny to say that I just created this account to report a bug. Anyways, I just found out that if you pause the game and click the "Details" option to see the recent changes in the actual build and then close it, you can still move while being on pause (but zombies will still move like you do!). I don't think that this problem might be because I use some mods such as Hydrocraft, so I'd like some feedback to confirm this? Thanks!
  20. Hey guys, with the ability to add cars in the new weather beta (thanks a lot, by the way!), I've been working on adding them all as new vehicles. Here's a screenshot of what I've got so far. I've got like ten thrown in there for now, not counting the different similar models (like cop cars or different lengths of pickup bed). I haven't done the masks yet, but got the random colors in, so that's pretty cool. Take it easy, dudes.
  21. Hi, I create a server and a new unique world with the time of the old wild west. More screenshots you can see here discord Server description you can see here discord The server will feature a variety of unique mods designed to provide greater realism and interest in the game. All the mods that are planned to be added will be shown here. Finished mods: Planned mods:
  22. Hi all, Please come along and join my PvE server. Details below; Name - M700N's UK PvE Server Mods - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1421254188 Discord - https://discord.gg/pUXV9pp IP - m700n.ddns.net Port - 16261 IMPORTANT TO KEEP YOUR SAVES. When you select the server in the server list change the IP to m700n.ddns.net and save it to favorites. This is so when the IP changes on the server it does not affect your save. Once it is added to your favourites it may appear offline but if you connect it will work. If you do join the only rule there is is to not take over any commercial buildings as Safehouses because it will prevent loot from appearing within for other players. A couple of things to note also, you will be able to claim a Safehouse after 1 day of survival and you will be able to create a Faction after 2 days of survival. 1 day is 1 hour real-time. Cheers, M700N
  23. Hi everyone, I'm looking for some help with installing zomboid mods on my NUC based linux server. I'm running an Intel NUC 6i5syh with 16gb ram, running Ubuntu Server 16.04 (just a command line, no gui). I've managed to run vanilla servers fine. I've used wget to download steamcmd, unzipped and run. After steamcmd has run, i've installed and run the zomboid server, port forwarded as necessary, and modified the servertest.ini file to get the basic game working the way I like. I've had a handful of friends playing this game no worries. Now though, I want to add a few mods like crematorium, and the learn medicine from dissecting zombie corpses mod. I've watched a few online tutorials and gathered that I have to again modify the servertest.ini file to change: MODS= WORKSHOP_ID= to MODS=CorpseStudy WORKSHOP_ID=1236360319 (multiple mods to be delineated by a ";") As far as I'm aware, doing the above should have the game auto download the updates necessary and run them when the server runs. Unfortunately, after doing this, when attempting to start the server, there are a bunch of notices like: Working: DownloadPending GetItemState()=NeedsUpdateDownloadPending<my photo clipped the rest of this> Finally, it shows: znet: OnDownloadItemResult Workshop: onItemNotDownloaded itemID=1236360319 result=37 Workshop: Item state DownloadPending --> Fail ID=1236360319 I would appreciate any help that can be given. If you need any more info let me know. I'm in Australia, so might no answer right away if you are located elsewhere in the world. Cheers, D.
  24. ALL BUILDINGS I MADE Since I intend to continue on creating buildings for the community, i took advice from Atoxwarrior and made a single post for all my creations! Feel free to go throgh them and pick the one you liked the most You can use'em freely on whatever project you might be doing, just mention me in the "credits". ====MADE BY TEREC====
  25. I hope it's not too contentious a thought to be said but... Any chance the team could get someone to help put @nolanri's Survivors on MP? Secretly, even? This is just such a game-changer I don't even think of it as a "mod" anymore. It's at the point where playing Zomboid means choosing between playing a quiet scavenger game with a handful of friends, OR diving into a chaotic zombie apocalypse. I would REALLY love to do both (as would likely everyone who subscribes to Survivors). I don't mean "quiet scavenger game" to be a disparaging remark- I've had a semi-regular group going at this game for most of the year I've had it, so obviously things are doing fine! Props to the team for where the game has gone over just my year of playing it. Anyways, there it is, cheers all! I hope I incur no wrath in posting this, and I will not be offended if this comment gets shut down or removed for being too similar to a demand for the three letter N word! Dirty, dirty word...
