Welcome to Dead Zone PvE! I’m hoping you will have a fun time building and being a part of the community here. Before you get started you should:
Install the icon pack:
Manual install Zip
Auto install Zip
NOTE: If your browser is not letting you download from the links provided, RIGHT CLICK the link, choose “copy link address”, then post the address into a new window. The downloads should then work.
1. Download either the Zip or Exe file.
2. The EXE file will install directly into your 7 Days to Die Folder. (after you unzip it)
3. Zip file: Open the file, then copy the mods folder from the zip into your 7 Days to Die installation folder (NOT into any existing MODS folder). (see below)
4. Restart your game.

If you are having trouble finding your 7 Days to Die folder, go to Steam, right click on the game. Choose Properties/ Local Files/ Browse Local Files. This shows the folder where your 7 Days to Die game was installed, usually C:Program Files (x86)Steamsteamappscommon7 Days To Die
On a Mac, the path will be something like ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/7 Days To Die/
If you see weird characters, e.g., XUI, go to Steam, Right click 7 Days to Die, choose Properties/Local Files/Verify Integrity of Game Files. Restart the game.
If you are getting errors when you start the server regarding ItemIconsTest, it is due to an old icon pack. Go to your 7dtd directory, delete the mods folder, and reinstall the latest icon pack. Also go to steam and verify your game files afterwards.
