Client Installation Methods

I will explain 2 methods you can use to connect to Hamcraft. Method #1 (recommended) will be the setup of a separate copy of the game that is no longer tied to Steam. Method #2 modifies your Steam installation.

Client Installation Method #1 - Separate Copy

This method will create a separate copy of the game that is no longer tied to Steam and is not affected by Steam updates. Using the Steam version allows you to play the normal version and connect to other servers.

  1. If you have ever installed any mods, uninstall 7 Days to Die and delete the install folder and the %AppData%\7DaysToDie\Mods folder. Then re-install and set the version in the BETAs tab to be Alpha 20.5 Stable.
  2. Download darknessfalls-403a-a205.zip (5 GB) from this website only. (it matches the server)
  3. Find your 7 Days to Die install folder, copy/paste it. This will copy ~14 GB.
  4. Rename the "7 Days to Die - Copy" folder to "7DTD-A20.5-Hamcraft"
  5. Make sure there are no installed mods under this folder.
  6. Extract the darknessfalls-403a-a205.zip archive to a temporary folder.
  7. Drill into the extracted Compopack folder until you see the "Mods" folder.
  8. Highlight "Mods" folder and all the files (like Hamcraft.ico, etc.) and press CTRL+X
  9. Go into the "7DTD-A20.5-Hamcraft\" folder and press CTRL+V (overwrite if prompted)
  10. Right-click on "7DaysToDie.exe" --> Send To --> Desktop (create shortcut)
  11. On your desktop, rename "7DaysToDie.exe - Shortcut" to "7DTD A20.5 Hamcraft"
  12. Right-click on "7DTD A20.5 Hamcraft" and select Properties, change the icon to "Hamcraft.ico"

Client Installation Method #2 - Steam modification

This method will modify the game that Steam installed. This will save space but it also means you probably cannot connect to other servers once it is tailored for Hamcraft. It will also likely break if a new version comes out so you have to keep it at the same version the server runs.

  1. If you have ever installed any mods, uninstall 7 Days to Die and delete the install folder and the %AppData%\7DaysToDie\Mods folder. Then re-install and set the version in the BETAs tab to be Alpha 20.5 Stable.
  2. Download darknessfalls-403a-a205.zip (5 GB) from this website only. (it matches the server)
  3. Extract the darknessfalls-403a-a205.zip archive to a temporary folder.
  4. Drill into the extracted Compopack folder until you see the "Mods" folder.
  5. Highlight "Mods" folder and all the files (like Hamcraft.ico, etc.) and press CTRL+X
  6. Go into the "%AppData%\7DaysToDie\" folder and press CTRL+V (overwrite if prompted)
