Alpha 19 Instructions

Note: you can only upload worlds also generated in the same version the server is using, you cannot use pre 18 worlds

  1. Every world you generate is saved in its own folder that can usually be found in %appdata%\Roaming\7 Days to Die\Saves\<NAMEOFWORLD>

  2. If it's a randomly generated world, you will also need the GeneratedWorlds folder found at %appdata%\Roaming\7 Days to Die\GeneratedWorlds
    Zip up the entire "Saves" folder containing the world folder and the generated worlds folder - Must be .zip, not .rar/.7z etc

  3. Log into your game panel → game services → select your server

  4. Go to file manager and go into the "Saves" folder, upload your zipped "Saves+GeneratedWorlds" folder then click it after its finished uploading and select unzip.



    Note - Some files can be too large for the File Manager, if you find this to be the case please use FTP to upload your zipped files. https://pingperfect.com/index.php/knowledgebase/19/Accessing-your-files.html
  5. Once the folder has unzipped you should see Saves\<MAPNAME>\<NAMEOFWORLD>, exit the file manager and select configuration files → configuration editor and edit the pingperfect.xml config

  6. Set "Game World" in pingperfect.xml to the same name of the world folder immediately under Saves (Zuheja Territory in this example)

  7. Set the "Game Name" field to the exact name of your save folder in the folder below the map-name
    Example - World uploaded is Saves\Zuheja Territory\TEST, you would enter "TEST" in the game name field

  8. In the config file set the seed and map size to the same values as were used when the world was created.

  9. Save config and start your server.
