NPCs Mod

7 days to die npcs mod, 7 days to die npcs, 7 days to die dmt mods

This is a mod that introduces dynamic NPC characters into the game by expanding on the Creature Pack Humans. These NPCs require some of SphereII’s DMT scripts, and these dependencies will be enforced upon loading this mod with the mod launcher. Many issues probably exist and they need help testing to make these NPCs work better.

This mod adds many new NPCs to the 7 Days to Die. Unlike previous NPCs, these can be hired then issued orders to stay, follow, and guard (patrol eat, drink, and looting POIs for you are being reworked, or abandoned). All this is configured in XML. Once hired, you cannot kill them, nor can another hireling or allies in your party hurt them. This blocks friendly fire issues. Non hired NPCs are fair game. They are currently set to spawn in the friendly animal spawn group, but you can change that in xml.

You set the patrol route by using invisible patrol blocks. Likely that will need a video to explain.

In xml you can set what the NPCs eat and drink, what they use for a toilet and what they defecate (if you turn that on), whats their home block, what they use for a bed, food containers, etc. Take a look at the xml and read the comments. The NPCs are an adaptation of the animals used for another mod, so if you want NPCs to breed and lay eggs, well, that could happen with the right xml. Just don’t ask him to help you with that.

Known Issues

This mod has not had much A19 testing and has so much code they expect you to find issues.

No training guide. SphereII posted details on each new script that contains lots of info on your xml options. But if your confused, feel free to ask questions on the forum page. Well, except questions about egg laying.

Changelog

Xyth just pushed a new version of all the packs with a hack to force preloading, so no more lag on the first spawn of each model.

Installing

This is a DMT mod so it must be compiled with DMT Modding Tool, or loaded by the mod launcher. This mod has several dependencies that must be compiled with this mod for it to work properly. Required: 0-SphereIICore, SphereII NPC Dialog Windows and 0-CreaturePackHumans

  1. Hi, I been allready playing whith this mod for a few days, I love this mod, bud, there are still a problem, ist that the auto turret shoot at them als they were enemigs even I´d allready contrat them, I informed this in the author page, but I´d have resive any answer yet, beside that, wonderfull mod!!!

      1. YOURE WRONG…
        I PLAYED THIS MOD ON MY PUBLIC SERVER WITHOUT DMT !!!
        Only issue was with BloodMoons…the mod causes very high server load and sometimes freezes with 2-3 players on BM…
        But i used it like every other mod !!! Just put it into MOD directory of game and server…done…

    1. as is they will appear automatically but be mixed in with regular spawns which seemed odd to me that the zombies in the world didn’t go after these human brains. so I removed all the zombies . and added the npcs to their spawn points. Zombies and dinosaurs are just getting old. People are scary and deadly enough.

  2. sorry, no can use. “.msi” files are a really fishy way of installing software (AKA: highly suspicious way of installing backdoors, and viruses). just the thought of installing something directly into my system files turned me completely off from installing your mod. great concept. EXTREMELY horrible execution.

  3. Im running the newer version that don’t require DMT on a dedicated server and it works fine. except for one npc the moto guy had to be disabled every time he was killed by anyplayer on server it would crash. so we just replaced him with the clubber and all seems well. great job I know this was a ton of work. took me all day when I set up to disable the vanilla zombies. and turn the game into a Fallen World.
