Arcade Games Props

7 days to die arcade games props

After some gentle nudging from other players, Cranberry Monster has decided to share these props they have been using in their virtual man cave for a while now.

This mod introduces craftable versions of 27 classic video games to decorate your base, as well as a change machine. The parts can be scavenged in the world, purchased from traders, or even bought from your own change machine, which will also buy unwanted goods from you.

Each cabinet stands just under 2 meters tall, and all of them have animated screen with the same “attract mode” you’d see in an arcade. Games where the attract mode also has sound will have a helper block so you can choose between a muted version or the noisy one, but even the noisy games have sound that rolls off at a distance of 5 meters. There are also 5 different “ruined” arcade game models and a placeholder for spawning derelict cabs in your own buildings.

Screens, marquees, and coin slots all glow at night, too, so you can enjoy your games machines even in period-accurate mood lighting.

He’d like to thank the great community of modders and players on the forums, from which he has learned a ton, as well as the generous souls over at 3D Warehouse for kindly providing these excellent models. They did most of the heavy lifting here.

Watch for a new arcade POI or two from Deverezieaux that incorporate these models.

The link below has been updated for the latest version, which includes 12 pinball machine models with animated playfields and sound (well, 10 of them have sound). As with the video games, there are muted versions of all of them as well. Sound rolls off at 3 meters for the pinball machines.

The pinball machines have illuminated backglasses, playfields, and coin slots.

And the backglasses can occasionally be found in-world, replacing the paintings you find in POIs. Smash them to pick them up, at which point you can either display them in your home or use them to craft a pinball machine.

Just a word of caution: there may be some issues with these on dedicated servers, which seem to take issue with the Unity video player in a20. xyth gives a solution for this in the thread for his TV and movie screen mod, and that involves editing the startdedicated.bat file. Here’s the pertinent info from that thread:

Dedi Experimental – read carefully

For some reason, the dedicated servers default startup file named startdedicated.bat has a Unity startup parameter -nographics. -nographics means dont load various shaders and the video decoding files needed to render video. So your job is to edit that file before starting up the dedi.

On about line 69 of that file you will see this line:

start %GAMENAME% -logfile "%LOGFILE%" -quit -batchmode -nographics -configfile=serverconfig.xml -dedicated

Change it to:

start %GAMENAME% -logfile "%LOGFILE%" -quit -batchmode  -configfile=serverconfig.xml -dedicated

Failure to do this properly will crash your dedi hard and fast.

Now, go get your game on!

  1. You know, it would actually be possible to work in arcadeflex to run the games for real. But, before that, code it so you can buy/sell some of the PCBs. I got an overflow of those things and the trader won’t even spit on them and they only seem to stack 10 at a time.

  2. Where are the monitors?? Ive found many PC boards and have everything to make the cabs, but no monitors in loot, for sale, in vending machines… nada.
