7 Days to Die | Darkness Falls (Installation, RAM requirements and map previews)

Instructions to install Darkness Falls mod pack on your server:
(See table at the bottom for minimum RAM requirements)

  • Stop the server
  • Remove any mods you already have installed in mod manager, also delete any folders left in \Mods in file manager.
  • In the actions tab, use the reinstall option to do a clean reinstall of your server.
  • After the reinstall, leave the server in a stopped state.
  • In Configuration Files in Game panel, edit your config and set your Game World option. You can use RWG but it will take 1-4 hours or more depending on which size map you select. You can use a Darkness Falls pre-created World to speed up this process. One we have seen good results with is DFalls-Medium1 (exactly that, case same as shown here) in the Game World box.
  • Save your config after setting up your selections.
  • Go to Mod Manager in Game Panel and install the Darkness Falls mod.
  • After the mod installs, you can start the server and use web console to monitor the startup. It will go through a process of applying the DF patches and be ready to play or will go through the process of generating the RWG World if you chose that option. 

NOTE - You cannot use the game provided pregen worlds with this mod (PREGEN01, 02 and 03) - You must use either one of the mod's pregens below or a RWG (Random World Generation) world.
