Dead Survival v0.16.02


Mod ID: 1913654097


Tired of dinosaurs? Of course you aren’t, but sometimes we want a little change in our diet. Dead Survival does just that. You can swap out the wildlife of the game with some… not-quite life? Zombies… We’re trying to say you can have zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. Hordes of them, even!

Think DayZ but in ARK.

Please post any bug reports or suggestions in their respective threads and we look forward to hearing your feedback! Enjoy!

Recommended Settings
  • Use -NoDinos launch parameter to disable all dino spawning.
  • Use normal harvest settings.
  • Use a longer night cycle by setting "NightTimeSpeedScale" to less than 1.
  • Don't try to force tame the zombies... Just don't. :D

Important Stuff
  • Zombies are attracted to sounds (bloater explosions, gunshots, firecrackers, force-opening locks, etc).
  • Zombie attacks cause zombie plague. It can be cured with zombie plague cure. It can be crafted in the workbench using resources looted from scientists.
  • Zombies can attack and damage wooden and stone structures. Metal structures may take fractional damage in the future.
  • Zombies can see farther during the day.
  • Every night there is a chance that a zombie horde will spawn around a random player. Horde zombies have yellow eyes and drop more loot than regular zombies.
  • Every ten (10) minutes there is a 5% chance of an airdrop plane flying overhead that drops parachute crates full of supplies. Watch the skies!
  • This mod is under heavy development so please be kind! <3
