About “7 Days to Die: Ravenhearst Mod”

About the game

7 Days to Die is a zombie apocalypse survival game that’s unique from other games. It combines the traditional survival mode of games (eg. DayZ) with the builder mode of others (eg. Minecraft). The result is complete freedom in a dynamic and open world.

Ravenhearst” is a mod (modification) to the original 7 Days to Die game. This means that you install the original game and then it is modified so that it has more features, items, and quests. It’s like an expansion pack created by fans.

This mod is designed to slow down player progression to give you a more realistic survival experience.  In addition to selecting a primary class (with specialties and unique abilities) there are also extended skill progressions, unique items and quests, and night terrors (bosses that come out at night).

The mod is currently on version 4 built for Alpha 16.4.  The mod can be installed on the client using the Mod Launcher.

Step-by-step Instructions:

Purchase 7 Days to Die.  You can purchase this game on Steam for about $25.  There are typically 25-50% deals going on every couple of weeks if money is tight.  But it’s worth the full $25!  You can purchase the game here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die/
Download and install the Mod Installer.  After you’ve purchased 7 Days to Die and installed it using Steam, you’ll need to install the mod.  The easiest way to do this is to download and install the Mod Installer program.  Download and install it here: https://7daystodie.com/forums/showthread.php?48537-The-7D2D-Mod-Launcher-A-Mod-Launcher-for-7-Days-to-Die
   Install Ravenhearst Mod.  Again, Ravenhearst Mod is a modification of the original game.  So basically what you’re doing is modifying the original game files of 7 Days to Die with new files.  When you open the Mod Installer tool, find Ravenhearst on the left-hand side.  You’ll select where your 7 Days to Die is installed (it should automatically fill that part out for you) and then you’ll install the mod using a copy of the game.  Be sure to pre-sync the mod before trying to launch it for the first time.  WE RUN THE 7 DAY HORDE EDITION OF THIS MOD.  It is very important that you select the 7 Day Horde version of this mod.  Server information can be found in the dropdown menu at the top of this website.  For a more detailed step-by-step setup guide, visit (coming soon!).
   Launch Ravenhearst Mod (7 Day Horde).  Since this modification of the original game uses a separate copy of files, it is important that you launch the correct copy of 7 Days to Die.  Using the Mod Installer tool, launch the game.  The first time the game loads it will take awhile (typically 3-4 minutes).  Point is: Ravenhearst takes longer to load up that normal 7 Days to Die.  So don’t get impatient.  If you crash or have problems, get a hold of us on Discord or Facebook.  Make sure you download and install the latest version.  And make sure you select the appropriate horde edition (ie. “7 Day Horde Edition”).  Very important.
