Although it has a reputation for being a tough survival game, “Project Zomboid” offers its players plenty of options to customize their zombie apocalypse experience, whether for solo players or for groups of people. friends, via the newly implemented multiplayer.
Ruthless difficulty isn’t for everyone, and there’s no shame in lowering some settings if it means players will have a better time with the game. Having such freedom is great for casual groups who just want to have a good time surviving in Kentucky’s disease-ravaged version of “Project Zomboid”.
Before delving into the options, server hosts are advised to exercise a degree of caution and restraint when it comes to changing game difficulty and other settings. The customization of the sandbox is already hurting the intended “Project Zomboid” experience, and over-adjusting things can hurt everyone’s enjoyment on the server.
Useful server settings
To change the server settings, go to the Host screen and click on the “Change selected settings” button. This can be done even after starting the server for the first time, but just make sure the correct server is selected.
For players who want to have an easier time but want most of the game to stay the same, go to the “Sandbox” section, then under the “Players” tab, activate the “Starter Kit” and “Multi-shot weapon“Options. The world map can also be revealed in one of the settings for easier navigation for new players.
This will cause all players to appear with provisions and a school bag containing a hammer and a baseball bat. The multi-hit option will allow many long guns to hit multiple zombies at once, making taking out the hordes a bit easier.
How to sleep in multiplayer
Sleep is disabled by default in multiplayer, but server hosts can enable it by going to the “Players” tab under the “INI” section of settings. Click on the “Sleep allowed”Checkbox to enable sleep in multiplayer.
This will allow players to sleep on those long, boring nights. Each player on the server should be asleep for time to pass quickly, so it is best to use it only for small groups. For those who wish to activate the sleep requirements, activate the “SleepNeeded” option. However, this can interrupt the flow of the game.
