What is Tree Farming?
Tree farming is when a play plants rows and rows of trees to collect wood from, Too many trees in a small area can cause server lag and lower FPS. We have banned tree farming for this reason. When you chop down a tree you get a seed, just replant the tree once you are done.
Can I Raid Other Player Bases?
If you are playing on our PVP server – yes you can.

If you are playing on our PVE server – no you can’t.

Why Does The Server Reboot?
7 days to die has issues with memory leaks and over time these leaks can lead to poor server performance. A reboot every 4 hours keeps everything fresh and gives us more time in between map wipes.
What Is Griefing?
A griefer is a player in a multiplayer video game who deliberately irritates and harasses other players within the game. (trolling) They may use aspects of the game in unintended ways to cause an issue with other players. A griefer derives pleasure primarily or exclusively from the act of annoying other users, and as such is a particular nuisance in online gaming communities.
How To Verify Integrity Game Files
  • In your Steam library right-click on “7 Days To Die” and select “Properties” 
  • Click on the tab called “Local Files”
  • Then click on the button “Verify Integrity of Game Files…”
What Is Drop Mining?
Drop mining is when you undercut sections of any block or terrain and allow the blocks/terrain above to fall to the ground. Drop mining can cause issues with the server and can also lead to premature map wipes. You can drop mine in small squares of 5x5x5 which will equal to 125 blocks. Anything more then that and our bot will detect these falling blocks and alert admin via discord.

What Is A High Value POI?
A high-value POI is a pre-fab structure that contains high-value loot, IE Gun safes, wall safes, ammo crates and multiple supply crates etc.
Can I Make A Base In A POI?
So long as the POI is not considered “high value” and the POI is not in a reset zone, no problems. If in doubt- ask an admin or moderator.
What Do I Get If I Donate?
We have different levels for donors with different benefits. Please visit our Donation Page for more details.
How Did Someone Find My Base?
The most common way players find other players bases are either by following players back to their bases or simply walking around the map with a land claim block in their hands. If it shows as green the land claim can be placed, If it shows as red you are either in a no-build zone or you are over the top of other players claimed area.
What Is A Reset Zone?

A reset zone is a particular area that will get reset after some time. These are usually in big cities or towns. The reason we have these are in case a city or major POI is ruined by a griefer or a new player use parts of the city to harbour themselves from a horde night. DO NOT BUILD YOUR BASE IN A RESET ZONE.
