Mark Air Drops in 7 Days to Die Multiplayer

Post by BillM » Sat Aug 27, 2016 8:09 pm

Hello everyone,

I've been searching for the answer to this for some time now, and I've finally figured out how to do it. I will post below how to add the airdrop marker to your compass/map.

Apparently, the current Gameservers default serverconfig.xml does NOT have this line in it. So it is very easy to do.

Option 1:

Log in to your GameServers.com control panel, and click "config".

Right after this line:

<property name="AirDropFrequency" value="24"/> <!-- How often airdrop occur in game-hours, 0 == never -->

You need to add this line:

<property name="AirDropMarker" value="true"/> <!-- Do you want the airdrop marker to show on the compass / map. -->


Option 2:

Navigate via FTP to your 7 days to die root folder and edit the serverconfig.xml file with something like notepad (although I use notepad++) and do the same thing.

Right after this line:

<property name="AirDropFrequency" value="24"/> <!-- How often airdrop occur in game-hours, 0 == never -->

You need to add this line:

<property name="AirDropMarker" value="true"/> <!-- Do you want the airdrop marker to show on the compass / map. -->

That's all there is to it. Hopefully this helps some of you.

Any chance this post can be stickied to the top of the forum? Just to make sure we can find it easier?
