Mostly Dead

7 days to die mostly dead, 7 days to die skill points, 7 days to die books, 7 days to die quests

A mod that implements the “mostly dead” character death style for 7D2D. For the manifesto, see: Mostly Dead: A Manifesto

This mod deals only with the player death aspects. The idea is that when a player character dies, players respawn as an entirely new character, but they respawn into a (mostly) unchanged world.


When the player character dies:

  • The player’s inventory is deleted (the “DropOnDeath” setting is forced to “Delete All”).
  • Skill points are reset (not removed), and books that were read are forgotten.
  • Bedrolls and beds are no longer spawn points, so players do not spawn on them.
  • The player map is reset, including any saved waypoints.
  • Player quests are removed, and a quest is given that automatically rewards the player with the items they start with when starting a new game.
  • Player vehicles are destroyed.
  • The player’s active land claim block is rendered inoperable.
  • The player’s ACL (Access Control List – i.e. friends list) is cleared.
  • If the player hired any NPCs, those NPCs are dismissed. (Assumes SCore NPCs.)

New for Alpha 20: Respawning as a new character will not happen until the player reaches level 2.

These features can be customized via XML edits or XPath. See the for details.


Since A20, custom C# code is supported natively. You do not have to compile anything. Just drop the MostlyDead folder into the Mods folder, like you would an XML/XPath mod.
