  1. Mod doesn’t work, I put all the files in the game Config folder and it makes the console show everything the game is loading when loading up my world and then it gets error codes and is stuck “creating player”. I have Anti cheat off. Does this mod work for pre-existing worlds?

    1. Hey ! You should NEVER put all files in config folder. You have to create a “mod” folder, and then, you just have tu put my mod in this file. Just go watch some tutorials on YouTube, they are plenty of it. Any 7 DTD mod don’t need to go to your game file. You just need a mod folder, if you replace files in config or whatever, you will just brake your game.

      1. Oh okay, thanks. Sorry I’m new to mods for this game. I’ll try it now, should work fine now with a proper installation.

    1. You should watch a tutorial on YouTube about how install mods. Because it works well for me. Don’t forget to create a mod folder !

  2. Hey I wanted to leave a suggestion for this mod. This feature could either be a separate mod or a separate download for this mod. There was an old feature where when zombie corpses decompose there was a third stage where the corpse block would turn into a gore block that could stack up on top of each other allowing zombies to climb up your walls like World War Z. It would be a really nice addition to the mod.

  3. I was wondering if anyone has tried this with the better vanilla pack? I was trying to, but every time I kill a zombie it gives me an error, and every time i try to loot on i get another error. The zombies are the same they just have generated names on each one maybe that is causing errors with the mod.
