Alchemy Mod (Potions and Buffs)

7 days to die alchemy mod (potions and buffs), 7 days to die experience, 7 days to die loot, 7 days to die mining, 7 days to die medical supplies, 7 days to die drinks

This is Poly’s first mod which she began developing in A19.

The original idea was to create a super simple mod in order to learn about modding, with the very first version being a new item consumable which gave the player a temporary buff, but as she began learning about Unity and XML she kept adding more and more until eventually she is at the point where she want to share it with the community.

The mod adds potions to the game, which when consumed give the player a temporary buff.

Potions, Elixirs and Brews are separated into four categories: Tier 1, 2, 3 and Special.

Tier 1, 2 and 3 recipes can be found or unlocked via the the skill tree.

Special recipes can only be unlocked via finding a recipe in the world.

In order to craft the potions you need to put points into Intelligence >The Alchemist, or find the relevant schematics/recipes.

All potions, brews and elixirs are crafted at the Alchemy Station.

Searching “_AM” in the Creative Menu brings up all new items added by the mod.

  1. Hello,
    It looks like a very good mod, thanks.
    I have a problem with the alchemy station.
    I’m playing with the smx mod from sirillon and I can’t make the potions.
    The ingredients are not consumed and I have no output on the station.

    I’m not sure if anyone can adapt this mod to smx.
    I’ve tried modifying the files but nothing works, I don’t know enough about it…
    I’m waiting for it.

    1. Hi,

      To add steel to the Prospector’s Forge first you craft Forged Steel in the normal Forge, then in the Workbench, convert the Forged Steel into Steel Bullion. Then smelt the Steel Bullion in the Prospector’s Forge.

  2. are the ores currently found like iron and others or are they only through say supply drops if it spawns like other ores are there any conflicts with world gen mods?

    1. The ores are found by mining vanilla ores as a secondary harvest resource.

      By striking iron, lead, oil shale, nitrate and coal you will get the ores.

  3. Unfortunately we added this to our server and some of the potions showed up on the traders but when utilizing the alchemy workstation there was no output slot and would create res errors when trying to use it. When removed it turned anything related to the mod into cars some of which were super high lvl ones that are members got dozens of while I appreciate the work I’d say this one needs some more testing.

  4. Hi 🙂

    This is spectacular! I’m looking forward to trying it out when I’m done with my current run-through. I’m hesitant to add it mid-game as I’ve got Sorcery going, which also has potions and alchemy.

    Do you happen to know, is your mod compatible with Sorcery? If not, is that something you might look into in the future?

    Thank you for your imagination and hard work!

    1. Hi Chris,

      Thanks for trying out the mod.

      I don’t have the Sorcery mod installed but all the new names use a unique suffix, so there should be no conflict with other mods.
