Alpha 9 with Random Worlds is out! | 7 Days to Die

It came out so recently, I can't even update my server yet. I know most people don't play, but still, this is an update fixing a lot of stuff and adding A LOT too. @Fasttrak @Pure3ify may find this update interesting. My favorite thing added is highlighted in green. :p

I only included additions, not fixes and changes, which can be found in the link.


  • Added new game map option ‘Random Gen’ which creates a randomly generated world seed based on the name you give the world. The random world generation includes all biomes, a full random sized central city, random in the wild cities, roads, rivers, lakes and random roadside and wilderness locations. Simply select Random Gen as the Game World and the name you give it will be the seed.
  • Added new sexier data driven ‘M’ map that renders based on where the player has visited with ‘Fog of War’ functionality. The new map shows, current position, cursor position, has waypoint functionality, recenter view to player, track friends on compass, mouse wheel scroll to zoom and left click drag to pan.

I cant wait to get my computer back from Geek Squad! As soon as its fixed i will be online playing! It all sounds exciting. Especially randomly generated maps, and new places!


Staff member
Holy cow!! That is one massive update. Curious what they fixed but too lazy to bother.

Get this sucker updated, doob!

I like the fog of war for the map is pretty cool, keeps you seeking fresher ground.

I ended up cancelling my killing floor, teamspeak 3 and 7 days to die server with gameservers becasue of their lack of support for the new update. I did get a new, updated server, which I will post the info to soon. I'm starting fresh once again and without cheats.


The 47 Ronin
Are you guys still playing this and on any certain servers? I have a friend who's talking me into trying it out. :)


The 47 Ronin
I don't really play it anymore. In most servers, you can press "Z" I believe and it opens up a cheat menu with all in-game items.

That update actually made the game less fun for me. I learned the original map and where everything was. With the update came random worlds and it's just endless layers of the few different types of environment and lack of looting fun except the huge town area where all players will flock to. I do have the the game installed and I'm sure they've updated it since I last played. I may give it a whirl again.

How many times have you died so far @A-Rich ? haha You learn to survive for a long time, but not after dying a lot at first.


The 47 Ronin
I think I died about 5 times in the first 5 minutes. ha So lost. I've never played any minecraft type of game before so while I'm looking at a billion menu choices, I'm getting eaten. :p Kinda force you to try to learn fast, but I think this game's gonna stress me out. ha


The 47 Ronin
I like the stress it brings. You'll find somewhere safe at night and accidentally fall off a ledge and then start freaking out as zombies start sprinting after you hah. Or when they dig under you when youre in a hole on a mountain... It seems they never stop attacking wherever you are.

I may have to play tonight!
