7 Days – Official Better Days Mod Page


Hello everyone. Here is Computer Ace’s Better Days mod for the game 7 Days to Die, alpha 15 (a15) version.

I felt that the game had a lot of bugs that needed to be fixed and recipes that didn’t make sense or that required too much grinding, so I revamped the configuration files to help with these problems. It also tones down the zombies a bit so they do not run as fast at night. There are hundreds of changes that make the game more fun and less grind-tastic. A must if you want to enjoy the game in single player mode or hate spending all your time working for materials.

Feel free to tweak the files to meet your liking. Read the Tweak section to leave out parts you don’t want. You may link to this page for anyone to find. Please do not link to the main file itself because the file name will change as I release new versions. Plus we want people to review the change log and installation instructions.
