Governments around the world competed against eachother, trying to be the first to reverse the damage of climate change. By releasing chemicals into the atmosphere without thorough research and testing, a new world was created, one which is roamed by the infected. Their brains have rotted away, and they roam the world aimlessly. All but around 1% of the global population were infected, and the number of survivors grows thinner each day. You're a police officer, a remnant of the past just trying to survive.


This pack features hundreds of new Zombie types, which all have different stats. Some interesting world generation, as you'll find abandoned cities, homes, shops etc which can all be looted. As you work your way up, you'll switch from melee weapons to ranged ones, which involve pistols, rifles and shotguns. There's lots of new items, recipes and mechanics, and it's an interesting, but intense and difficult pack overall.


The pack is going to be very difficult, tweak your own settings, and add/remove mods to your liking!





Villages are spawning inside walls
This seems to be an issue with the Lost Cities mod, and will cause Villages to spawn inside the Cities, and underground which will kill Villagers. It's a better idea to look for Villages that are naturally spawning in standard biomes.

World creation tips?
On the World Creation screen, go into 'More World Options', select the 'Cities' button in the top right corner and change the 'Profile' option in the top left to an option of your choice, such as Default, Rare etc. That way, Lost Cities will be able to spawn in your world.

This pack is way too hard!
Yeah, this pack is quite difficult, I used all Zombie related mods I could find for Minecraft 1.16.5. The Crafting Dead is what makes this pack most difficult, as the Zombies can pass on diseases and run faster than you at the start of the game. Unfortunately, there's no proper configuration options for the mod. So if you want to make it a bit easier, you could remove the Crafting Dead, but you'd lose a lot of cool items like guns, armor and more. You could remove Improved Mobs, which disables the option for mobs to have increased stats as time goes on. One option is to go into the Bad Mobs config, and disable the likes of Fast Zombies, Weak Zombies and Tank Zombies provided by the Crafting Dead, as these Zombies completely ignore spawn rules and will spawn out of nowhere on your island even during the day in large packs.

What is the lore?
You're heading into the world as a cop, so you're equipped with some police gear, a shield and baton which should give you a nice head start. Zombies early on will cause you to bleed out too, which is when you should use the medical kits provided with the starter gear mod.

How do I equip items?
Some items, especially those from the Crafting Dead have their own interface in which you can equip stuff. To open it, press the Z key by default, then you can equip masks, outfits etc.

How do I set waypoints?
You can access your minimap options by pressing the Y key. You can select the Waypoints option from this menu, or press the U key to open it quickly.


Cloudy Weather?
This is incorporated with the Better Weather mod, which also adds Seasons. You can wait for it to spawn naturally, or use the command /betterweather setweather betterweather-CLOUDED and then do /gamerule doDaylightCycle false which will keep your sky looking dark and gloomy.


How to Replenish Thirst?
Thirst comes from the Crafting Dead. There are multiple items which can hydrate you, including: Apple, Rabbit Stew, Carrot, Beetroot, Honey Bottles, Chorus Fruit, Sweet Berries, Enchanted Golden Apples, Golden Apples, Mushroom Stew, Suspicious Stew, Beetroot Soup, Melon Slices, Golden Carrots and Water Bottles. 

What else is worth noting
Vending Machines can be found in Villages, and the stock will refresh daily. In the Overworld, all hostile mobs apart from Zombies and their different variations are disabled, the Nether has been left alone. Make sure to install Optifine, so that you can use Tissou's Zombie Pack which will bring in hundreds of new and unique textures for Vanilla Zombies. If you want to use the same shaders that I'm using on the images tab, as well as in my video, it's Complementary Shaders , SecurityCraft is also included so that you can setup landmines, CCTV cameras and other useful tech items. The Travelers Backpack can be crafted to allow you to have a sleeping bag and crafting table built in, you can find all the recipes with the included Just Enough Items mod.
