In 7DTD there are several server lists, Standard, Modded, Peer, Friends, History and LAN below is a short description of each tab
These are servers that have 0 mods and use the "recommended" server settings
These are servers which EITHER differ from the "recommended" server settings or have mods installed
These are servers which run off of people's pc's and can be laggy
These are servers where you have steam friends playing on
Servers you have played on in the past
Servers running on your home network
It's worth noting that if you want to appear on the "standard" list you have to use all the settings the devs specify, any deviation will put you on the modded list. You can see what the standard settings should be by loading up your server then looking at the output log within 7DaysToDieServer_Data in file manager.
