How to Enable Random World Generation on your 7 Days to Die Server

By default, 7 Days to Die servers will use one of several predefined maps. 7 Days to Die also supports random world generation that can be enabled by modifying your server’s configuration file.

Note: The GameWorld property refers to the name of a map to load, not the name of the save file or session. Using arbitrary values that aren’t the names of maps in Data/Worlds or RWG will result in the game crashing during startup.

Enabling Random World Generation

You can enable random world generation using the following procedure:

  1. Log in to your server’s control panel.
  2. Navigate to Files > Config Files > 7 Days to Die Server Settings.
  3. Scroll until you find the option GameWorld.
  4. Change the value of GameWorld to RWG and the value of GameName to a world name of your choice.
  5. Click Save and Restart your server to apply the changes.

Your server should use random world generation upon restarting!

Reverting to a Pregenerated World

If you wish to revert your server to a previous map, you can do so by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your server’s control panel.
  2. Navigate to Files > Config Files > 7 Days to Die Server Settings.
  3. Scroll until you find GameWorld.
  4. Change the value of GameWorld to reflect any of the predefined maps.

    Note: Currently, the predefined maps are: Navezgane, PREGEN6k, PREGEN8k, PREGEN10k. Mods may also include their own maps, the names of which are also valid here.
  5. Change the value of GameName to a world name of your choosing.
  6. Click Save and Restart your server.

Your server should now be using the specified world upon restarting!
