The Oakraven Forest Collection offers an experimental ‘pick and mix’ bundle of Quality of Life mods to enhance your 7D2D experience. It is brought to you by oakraven and arramus. These mods will be regularly updated based on feedback, and the number of mods will continue to increase as they move from development stage to experimental release, and then to stable.

They can be added as standalone individual mods, or combined to cover many aspects of game-play. Since these mods contain custom content, they must be installed in your ‘Mods’ folder on both the server and within player game files.

Wickidaurazgaming kindly shared a showcase of some of the mods in action. Some will be updated with additional features and fixes in time but will remain true to the concept shared in this showcase.

Fish Farm

The Oakraven Fish Farm mod allows players to farm fish through all stages of development. The process for farming is as follows – Create your Fish Farm, place it on the ground, add Fish Growing Kit, and wait as the fish go through an incubation, hatching, growth and breeding stage, and finally collected. Once collected, the fish can be placed on the ground and harvest for fillets (3 kinds of unique fillets). Alternatively, you can craft a Fish Stick and cook a ‘Fish on a Stick’ snack. The Fish Stick can also be used as a melee weapon. Oakraven Fish are cooked on a stand alone Fish Oven.

Detailed Installation Instructions

For Server Admin/Hosts and Players who have never installed a 7D2D mod before, here are some simple step by step instructions.

  1. If you’ve never installed a mod before, it is necessary to create a ‘Mods’ folder in the main directory (typically: \SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\7 Days To Die). If you have a custom install or your server host has modified the installation location, then you may have to explore.
  2. Simply make a new folder called Mods (with a capital M to reflect standard nomenclature) in your ‘7 Days To Die’ main directory folder.
  3. You can now drag the mod or collection of mod folder(s) directly out of the zipped file and it can be placed into the Mods folder.
  • Does this Mod need to be installed in the server/client host? = YES
  • Do players also need to install this Mod? = YES

If players do not install the same mods as the Server/Host, they will not be able to join.


  • (new) Fixed 8 x 1 walkway.
  • The Drawbridges (Walkways) mod has been updated and uploaded for testing. It will take a little more time to look at a powered version. It looks very ambient.

  1. I suggested the Pimps ages ago to break down the crafting and do something similar. Did they bother? So, thank you very much for these mods. Please keep it alive until 2050 when Gold released.

    1. As stated in the comment form, if the post has a support link (Forum, GitHub Issues, Discord, etc.), use it to get help.

  2. Can’t craft the new generators or the solar panels, keep getting an error message that says: NullReferenceException Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Anyone else having this problem or has a solution?

  3. The hydroponic planters have lights that penetrate through the floor so if you placed them on a platform, everything under the platform gets super brightly lit up too. It’s a pure blinding white light if you put a bunch together.

    It goes through any block. Can this be fixed?
