This 7 Days to Die mod adds 4 new traders to the A18 game version. Unlike vanilla traders, they spawn outside of trading posts, and wander the game world. The will attack all enemies (Zombies and dangerous animals), and will attack the player if they are damaged by the player.

Features

Unlike normal traders, this new traders can be killed and will drop a specific loot container. Unless actively alerted and approaching a target, they will stop when the player comes into range, put away their weapon and invite you to trade or do tasks. Each trader has a different inventory, configurable in XML. As setup now, one sells mostly weapons and ammo, the next sells science stuff and meds, another food, and the last sells general items.

Each has a ranged weapon with xml configurable properties. These may need adjusting, but are set at various ranges and are pretty accurate. Change the ammo speed and/or the SpreadDegrees settings in xml to adjust. Some randomly shoot more than 1 projectile per shot, which is also adjustable.

Spawning is handled by adding all 4 as a rare spawn to any “friendlyanimal” spawn group. Depending on your preferences, make them more or less rare, change where they spawn, and let me know what works well.

Known Issues

The traders ability to hit non-player entities at a distance was impacted by A18 projectile collision changes. SphereII and Xyth will look into fixing this in a future release.

The left hand position of the Heavy Trader is off on most animations. It doesn’t look too bad, and Xyth might clean that up eventually. That’s a consequence of saving time by reusing animations tuned to the weapons trader.

Some minor sliding in and out of animations might still remain, especially when doing the kneeling to fire sequence. That’s a tricky combination of animations but should be good enough. Xyth plan one more tuning pass on final release.

Installing

  1. Hi, silly question, do any body know why some of my mod keep deleting themselve from the mods folder, example the mod 0-SphereIICore disapare from the folder one or tre times a day, and I have to reinstall them again with the DTM tool, and is not the antivirus , I´d check that. Thanks

    1. Hi, Miguel. When you add a new mod, you must select all the mods you use and click Build. If you do not do this, the DMT Tool removes the mods you did not select from the folder.
