7daystodie.com - Alpha 17.3 is out!

Recommended Posts

We’ve just released Alpha 17.3 B18 Stable

For A17.3 we have set focus on bug fixes and RWG.

We have fixed the issue which caused chunks to be reset to their original state, often affecting players’ bases.

To report bugs please go here: Alpha 17.3 B18 Bug Reporting Thread


  • For RWG we worked over to remove the POI replication spawns (radio tower cities), reworked the roads so be more vehicle-friendly, overworked the world layout and adjusted the placement of POIs and cities.
  • This framework we are backporting to 17.3 is part of a larger Alpha 18 plan to make it awesome.


  • gfx console command (key changes shader keywords, pp changes postprocessing, type gfx for help).
  • God casting to debug mode (shift+Q key moves you to where you are looking or 100m if nothing hit)
  • Giveselfxp should not be modified by XP multiplier (added help command)
  • Explosions wake sleepers even if no damage


  • Quests now will try to find closer POIs.
