The Working TFP Raft

7 days to die the working tfp raft, 7 days to die boat, 7 days to die vehicles


The Raft can be placed in shallow water with level ground underneath much the same as the latest version of the ‘boating mod‘. You can also place the Raft on a flat piece of ground and as near to water as possible and launch from a steeper riverbank side. When launching from land move the raft down slowly towards water and turn it slightly sideways as you approach the waters edge and use the spacebar (tiltback) as you enter the water.

Once in the water level the Raft and off you go.

The Raft will behave a bit irratically on land and will wobble about a bit initially, on water the Raft is very stable.


Normal keys W and Shift for forward momentum and Space bar and C control the up and down angles (same as a gyro) which you may need to adjust slightly as you travel on water. Although once levelled the Raft is much more stable than a boat. Steer the Raft with the A and D keys.

If you let go of W and shift (Turbo) then the Raft slowly comes to a stop, there is no reverse on a raft although pressing S will slow the Raft down more quickly this replaces Spacebar as the brake key.

To ‘anchor the Raft’ and stop it drifting away use C and Spacebar to level the Raft until it stops drifting, useful if you have a fishing mod installed.

Note: The speed of the Raft is reduced as compared to the testing video and the camera angle shortened.


The Raft is craftable in a standard workbench with no progression needed at the cost of having enough resources and actually finding a working workbench. Finding a workbench in early game would be a bonus and allow you to make the Raft a lot sooner.

The recipe’s are simple and use standard in game resources… feel free to alter the recipe if you wish.

Raft has 4 seating positions… not tested in Multiplayer yet.


Raft Removed for A20 until a fix is made on the waterblocks damaging player.

Version 2

  1. Updated XML to A20!
  2. Added support for Telric’s Fishing mod… you can now do some fishing from the Raft.

The raft has 4 fixed seats still and will update to modded versions later… Ragsy need to re do a few things on it in the future and add some water effects but for now its sail away as before.

  1. There are no working workbenches you will have to make one before you can make this or complete all tier II quests Although nothing is set in stone if you get one or not LOL

  2. Is there anything stopping me from using this in alpha 19? Any changes in it that would break this mod or cause it to not work? I absolutely LOVE the idea of this.
