This modpack doesn’t really add anything new, but instead adjusts existing features to make surviving harder and the player think more about their actions. The player character isn’t as fitted for the survival whereas zombies are more fierce than before. Items aren’t often as effective as they used to be and many buffs have been weakened. Traders require more quests to advance and the rewards are usually worse. Overall, things are looking quite a bit more miserable.
Due to the nature of this modpack, it is completely server-side and consists only of XML files. It is also divided into three parts: items, player and zombies. These let you easily decide which part(s) of the changes you want into your game. The mod is still very much in progress when it comes to balancing, so voice your feedback!
