7 Days to Mine [Alpha 3] - Trailer Released

Submitted by Nuparu00 on Mon, 07/07/2014 - 20:10



With the upcoming release of a new version of my mod I sometimes take screenshots and send them to few friends, however, I decided for some reason upload some of them here , so you can take a look at them- Also I plan to rewrite this post after the release, so finally there won't be monstrosities that 2 years younger me has written, so that's definitely something nice. Anyways, here are the pictures:








And here starts the original post:



Beginning tutorial


First thing what you need to do is to collect some small stones.

To collect it you only need to find and right click on a small stone.

Second, what you need is cut some tall grass (1 block big). There is big chance to drop plant fiber.

The last thing what you need is a stick.

Open you crafting table or inventory and put one small stone, one plant fiber and one stick into crafting.(This recipe is shapeless)


You can also make a stone shovel.(Too shapeless)

For making some light you can make a campfire.

If you were lucky to have found a building you have probably good shelter ( don't forget to repair holes in the roof).

In this early phase of playing, I don't recommend you to go to wasteland or burnt forest.




"Forging" is very important activity in 7 days to die and also in 7 days to mine.

In 7 days to mine is forging bit different than in 7days to die.

First, you must dig some clay and craft them into the lump of clay.

From a lump of clay, you first need ingot molds. There is a separate mold for each metal. Recipe for each mold is some position of 5 lump of clays in shape like this

After you made a mold you need to fill it.

You will get filled ingot mold but you need smelt this.

Now only put it in crafting and you will get one ingot and empty mold.


Melee weapons


Basic melee weapon is a wooden club. It can be crafted simply from 5 sticks. Wooden club have damage value 7 (like diamond sword) but remember that zombies have 400 - 1000 (Feral zombie have the most health in my mod)

Second melee weapon is an iron reinforced club. On this club, you need 3 sticks and 4 scrap iron. This club has damage value 8.

The third weapon is bone shiv. Bone shiv is easy to craft. You need only 2 bones. Bone Shiv has damage value 7.

Next is a barbed club. The barbed club needs to craft 3 sticks (Every club need 3+ sticks) and 4 Forged iron. Forged iron is crafted from one 7 days to mine iron ingot.

Crafting recipe of the barbed club is similar to crafting recipe of iron reinforced club. This club has damage value 11

Same damage has also hunting knife. For crafting, you need 1x Iron Ingot.

The best melee weapon in the mod is currently Spiked Club. Spiked club needs on craft 4 iron ingots (yes iron ingots from this mod no vanilla) and like the previous clubs, 3 sticks. This club has almost 2x bigger damage than a diamond sword (13).




Building base


Of course, you can build a base from vanilla blocks like the dirt or wood planks but if you like 7 days to die game, there is a similar method to build a base.

First, you need craft wood logs to wood planks block.

From wood planks block you need craft wooden plank. To craft it you need put one wood planks block to middle of crafting table grid (no inventory)

From it, you can craft Wooden frame. The shape similar to the chest or furnace shape.(This image is old - you will get only one frame)

From it build your house.

Now click on this blocks with some wood planks to upgrade it.

The Wooden frame can be upgraded 3 times. First 2 upgrades are with wood plank and the last is of the scrap iron.

Now if you have built your base you need to make some defend.

A good way to defense is to dig a trench but don't forget that the zombies DON'T burn in the sun.

So you must craft some traps for beginning wooden spikes.

Wooden spikes can be blooded. If are your wooden spikes blooded, they give smaller damage than the new spikes.

You can also craft metal spikes, barbed wire, and landmine.





You have a stone axe and a stone shovel ( and maybe some vanilla tools) but we need better tools.


Basic pickaxe is copper pickaxe.

Better than copper pickaxe is bronze pickaxe.

A bit better is iron pickaxe.

And better than iron pickaxe is steel pickaxe ( For now is crafted from iron ingots.)

But all pickaxes are nothing compared to Auger! Auger is very hard to craft but is also a good weapon (damage value 9).


Other tools:

Fireaxe is very fast axe and very good weapon because have damage value 11.


Gardening Hoe

Screwdriver (sadly not sonic)


Sledgehammer is very poor pickaxe (maybe slower than wooden) but have good damage value (10)


Chainsaw is a very very good axe. Also, have nice damage value (11)





There are 18 new mobs.


Reanimated corpse

Frozen lumberjack

Zombie Pig

Chicken Zombie

Zombie Cow

Crawler Zombie

Infected survivor

Burnt zombie

.Zombie wolf

Very danger because this zombie is fast.

Wild pig

Not very danger because have only around 50 health.

Spider Zombie 

He can climb like a spider.



Frostbitten worker

Bloated walker

Plagued nurse



Feral zombie

Probably most danger zombie in this mod. (1000HP)






Food shop

Crashed airplane body

Crashed airplane cockpit


Blue house

Hunter's shelter


Corner house

Ugly bus

I'd be interested in how you were able to make villagers trade custom items with the player. I can't do that without editing villagers using NBTEdit. :/
