There"s around 3 rules I"ve read about to stop zombies spawning in a base/taken over POI. None of them are working.

You are watching: 7 days to die zombies spawn in base

 

1. Bedroll.

Nope. Doesn"t work. Unless the selection prevention from stated bedroll is particularly small.

 

2. Claim Block.

Nope. Doesn"t work. In 2 POIs currently the range of the block has actually been well beyond the POI itself, and yet in both POIs zombies have respawned.

 

3. Boost the blocks on the ground therefore they"re currently player own blocks.

Nope, doesn"t work. I boosted the entire floor to boosted concrete and then had fifty percent a dozen irradiateds spawn in the an extremely room in which the floor to be "player made".

 

So what _are_ the rules for zombie spawning, or is it just bugged and erratic?

I assumed that placing block on all spawnable areas stopped them, not simply upgrading the existing.

 

Examples: Upgrading the currently wooden floor to reinforced timber or scrap steel does not block spawns.

 

Placing brand-new blocks (like forges, chests, or simple wooden plates) stop the spawning.

 

Player put items that space not part of the POI stops spawning. Zeds dont spawn unless there is a nice clean floor space (never seen sleepers on bed or furniture). This method that every block space needs to be occupied, and putting the flattest block (plates) renders it easy to have the ability to walk around.

 

But not entirely particular of this.

No. This hasn"t worked since a16.

They will generate in the next available vertical space. Which may be her roof.

I"ve tested this once.

If you place a block precisely where the generate is, that doesn"t always guarantee the they won"t spawn. Occasionally they just appear directly above... At the next place vertically the has sufficient space. This you can see occasionally on horde night if zombies clip right into a wall and gain sent increase to her otherwise inaccessible area.

 

So if you did this in a POI, you will likely finish up v zombies on her roof. The does protect against it many of the time though. Ns think what provides it not work occasionally is that it relies on the size of the sleeper volume that triggers the spawn. I mean if you have actually a lot walking on in a big POI, the is possible to create a spawn split-seconds before blocks room materialized, basically causing this clipping.

 

One point I uncovered that seems to avoid them 100% of the time is put a water block at that precise spawn location. Maybe water is rendered before other things. If it"s a spawner the spawns one upright, stand zombie, it needs to be in ~ ground level. I uncovered this once trying to generate crawlers in a sewer mechanism I made. Ns got roughly it through triggering spawns floating over the water so the they actually spawn in the air and also fall in before the player it s okay close. How amazing they stay asleep.

None of this solves the trouble reasonably... I just thought I would share what I discovered from playing roughly with ingredient one day.
