Here are the 7 best mods we’d recommend trying on 7 Days to Die:
Electricity No Wires
While we know removing wires from your settlement is pretty boring as far as mods go, they can be frustrating to deal with in 7 Days to Die, so getting rid of them is a real improvement. It’s less realistic to be sure, but anyone who’s spent a decent amount of time on the game will tell you, installing wires just isn’t fun in 7 Days to Die. They also look ugly as sin.
This mod removes wires from your camp, but still allows you to power your electrical devices. Those who can’t be bothered arranging their wires or hate how they look should download this as soon as possible.

This 7 Days to Die mod is a helpful quality of life improvement that smooths the textures of the game and helps the lighting look more realistic. Ray tracing this is not, but it certainly helps an aging game feel more in step with today’s visual standards. There are also 2K and 4K options to really create an immersive atmosphere.

This mod is clearly a nice nod to Bethesda’s Fallout series. This turns your camp into a Vault Tech-inspired settlement, complete with raiders, mutants, and other Fallout staples. Nuka-Cola also makes an appearance. If you wish 7 Days to Die was a little more like the Capital Wasteland, then this mod is for you.

The base game allocates only one skill point per level, while this mod starts by giving you two, then eventually ten per level. It’s a brilliant way to craft the ideal build without so much grinding.

Lucky Looter AIO
Simply put, this mod in 7 Days to Die will take the tedium out of farming for item drops. It also makes your drops make more sense. If you loot a medical facility, for example, you’re likely to find more medical supplies than anywhere else. The mod also helps you find more of each item to save you time rummaging around an area waiting for specific item drops. It’s incredibly useful.

Grow Crops Without Farm Plots & Quickstack
We’re cheating a bit here, as these are two separate mods, but we feel they work really well together. They also work well with the Lucky Looter AIO mod, so consider getting all three. Growing crops without farms allows you to skip the farming aspect of the game but keep your camp supplied at the same time. Of course, this is only for those who find farming in a zombie game boring, which we appreciate isn’t everyone.

This works well with the QuickStack mod because it allows you to drop as many items as you like into the same slot within a storage container straight from your inventory. It also can be done without even opening the container. The idea is to let you gather and store as many things are you want, without constantly juggling between menus.
