This mod is only for the dedicated server build


The latest build can be found here:

Note that this might break on new versions of the 7dtd dedicated server. If they release a new build check if there's also an update for the mod.

Once downloaded unpack the archive to your server folder so you get a Mods folder in the server root folder.

Old releases

If you need an older release, e.g. because you want to run an older version of the game, you can download them from the same folder as the latest

Build yourself

  • Get the project from the SVN (e.g. with TortoiseSVN if you are on Windows)
  • Copy the files given in the 7dtd-binaries/README.txt from the game to that folder
  • Open the project, change whatever you want, build
  • Copy the Mods folder to your game root folder


New log information

  • When a player has a stack in his inventory which exceeds the official stack size limit for that item:
    Player with ID 171 has stack for "stick" greater than allowed (2000 > 250)

Integrated Webserver for administration

See Integrated Webserver for more information.

Map rendering

The map is rendered to image files as people visit the different places. Those images are stored within the save game folder in a folder named map. This folder contains one subfolder per zoom level, 0 being the most zoomed out whereas currently 4 is the normal size. In each of them are folders for the X coordinates of the blocks which contain individual images for the Y coordinates:

         0/             # 0 being the zoom level
             -3/        # -3 is the block number in x-direction (west to east)
                 5.png  # 5 is the block number in y-direction (south to north)

The map will be rendered while people wander around but if you want to initially get everything mapped that has been visited prior to adding this mod (or prior to rev.131 which introduced this feature) you might want to run the command "rendermap". NOTE that this will take a long time to execute (in the minutes) depending on how big the visited map is so far. During this time the server can not be used for playing or any commands.

The generated map file structure can be used to show the map with tools like Leaflet. The integrated webserver will also show this map.

New commands (for in-game console, control panel and Telnet)

  • give: Give an item to a player
  • listitems / li: List items that can be given with give
  • listknownplayers / lkp: List all players that have ever been online (since this version of the mod)
  • listlandprotection / llp: Lists all land protection blocks and their owners (name only shown when owner is online) or only those that are owned by a given player (steamid or entity/name if online) or show a summary of players and number of keystones used only (by passing "summary"):
    Player " (76561198066968172)" (protected: True, current hardness multiplier: 4):
       (1249, 60, -21)
    Total of 1 keystones in the game
  • removelandprotection / rlp: Removes the given land protection block or all blocks of a given player.
  • rendermap / rm: Render the map as far as it was ever visited by any player to both a big file and many small tiles that can be used for a map viewer like Leaflet. WARNING: This command can take a long time to execute (like 5 to 30 minutes) and the server won't be usable at that time for anything else!
  • reply / re: Send a message to the player who last sent you a private message (see sayplayer / pm).
  • sayplayer / pm: Send a message to a single player denoted by his name or entity id. Will be shown on receiver side as "<sender> (PM)" where <sender> is either "Server" if sent through the control panel or Telnet interface or the name of the sending player if used by the in game console.
  • showinventory / si: List the inventory/belt content of a player denoted by his name or entity id. Note that this data is only updated every 30s when the client sends his current state. Sample output:
    Belt of player:
        Slot 1: 001 * bottledWater
        Slot 2: 001 * canChili
        Slot 3: 001 * firstAidBandage
    Bagpack of player:
        Slot 0: 031 * canBeef
        Slot 4: 001 * firstAidBandage
