7 days to die paintjob, 7 days to die truck mods, 7 days to die motorcycle, 7 days to die bicycle, 7 days to die vehicles

Are you tired of driving the exact same Jeep as you friend? Do you want to pimp your ride? PaintJob is for you! This mod add recipes that allow you to change the colour of your ride.

PaintJob allows you to change the skins of bicycles, minibikes, motorcycles, and jeeps. You first need to get a vehicle the normal way (you build it or buy from the traders). You can then use that vehicle as an ingredient to craft a different looking version. The changes are purely cosmetic, all the in-game stats and behaviours remain unchanged.

For the motorcycles, you can also change the configuration and remove the spikes, the shield or the hood.

  1. Hello! I clicked on the “download” option and it tells me that the file is missing. Congratulations for the mod, it’s super innovative and looks like it’s a lot of fun!

  2. WARNING! Do not use this mod in 19. Last Updated September 30, 2020

    Here are the issues with this mod and i am writing this so people don’t waste a whole day fixing their game or server like i did, Also note none of these issues started until this mod was installed and i believe it is just out dated and needs to be updated.

    1st Issue is is if you have items in your vehicle they can commonly vanish after exiting vehicles and or logging out with items in your vehicle upon return all gone, this happen to me several times and also others on my server.

    Also your vehicles will commonly disappear and then reappear a day or two later for no apparent reason. Upon reentering the game after your vehicle disappearing the server will put up many error codes because it is trying to find your lost vehicle.

    Also if you want to remove the mod is when all hell breaks lose. Do do so you have to gather all vehicles on the server, scrub all vehicles and then restore them back to their normal game state. Then put them in a box and log out. Then remove the mod from your server mods folder and off your local machine and then restart the server and steam.

    Also note if your vehicle disappears while using this mod you can’t remove the mod to try and fix the problem because the server will toss a bunch of error messages, the person with the lose vehicles will not be able to use or place another vehicle or see others vehicles until the vehicles they lost reappear and they scrub and repaint back to default setting.

  3. Love the vehicles – great for multiplayer as we can tell who owns what.

    Hate that it puts me in some quirky first person view. Any way to change this back to default 7days view ?

    1. NM – turns out to be another mod that made some a permanent change to my files, and was putting me into 1st person mode in vehicles, even after the mod was uninstalled.

  4. Hi can i use this mod in single player creative mode, i installed the mod and the cars etc are there, i can even drive them but i get a error when loading saying paint job did load or apply. Is there anything else i need to do.
    Thank you

  5. if i put it on server host, users who don’t have it installed can’t see the cart, or can’t see the painting
