A21.2 EXP brings Perma Death setting!

Shodan/ Settembre 6, 2023/ 7 Days to Die

Hello Survivors!

Today we bring to you A21.2 with an all new “Death Penalty” setting, allowing you to choose between different penalties for someone’s demise, including a total wipe of your character.
For dedicated servers you will need to have this line in the serverconfig to start fresh or continue an old save:
<property name=”DeathPenalty” value=”1″ /> <!– Penalty after dying. 0 = Nothing. 1 = Default: Classic XP Penalty. 2 = Injured: You keep most of your debuffs. Food and Water is set to 50% on respawn. 3 = Permanent Death: Your character is completely reset. You will respawn with a fresh start within the saved game. –>

To opt in and give feedback follow these steps:

  1. Right click on the game in steam
  2. Click on properties
  3. Click the “betas” tab
  4. The drop down menu will have latest_experimental available <— you want THAT
  5. Select that and wait for the game to download

We wish everyone a lot of fun with this experimental version!
