Anger Plus

Now, this is my favorite Project Zomboid mod ever! At first glance, adding another mood might seem like a complication, but Anger Plus offers a realistic element to the gameplay

In a survival scenario, it's natural to experience anger and frustration. This mod reflects that by triggering anger in your character for reasons like injury from bushes, failing to jump over a fence, or breaking a weapon. The interesting part is, the angrier your character gets, the stronger they hit zombies – but there's a catch: your weapons degrade faster. In critical situations, this anger can be a lifesaver against zombies.

However, high anger levels also lead to unhappiness and fatigue. You can manage your character's anger through activities like sleeping, reading, or exercising. 

Additionally, the mod introduces four new Project Zomboid traits, further enhancing variety and strategy that we all love in PZ.

More Starting Locations

For players seeking variety beyond the usual spawn points in Project Zomboid, More Starting Locations is a fantastic thing. This mod introduces four new spawn locations in addition to West Point, Rosewood, Riverside, and Muldraugh.

It not only offers a completely new city to start your journey in, but also includes numerous diverse spawn points within that city. This mod is especially appealing for those who want to explore new environments and are looking for a change from the standard spawn points in the game.

Scrap Weapons and Scrap Armor

For a touch of realism in Project Zomboid, the Scrap Weapons and Scrap Armor mods are ideal. These mods add new melee weapons and armor, all crafted from scrap metal.

Autotsar Trailers

The Autotsar Trailers mod is a fantastic addition for anyone playing Project Zomboid with friends. Unlike mods that add weapons, this one allows you to attach trailers to your car, which is incredibly useful as it lets you carry large amounts of items.

It's perfect for when you're starting out in a temporary home and planning to move to a better base location later in the game.

You can even carry your generator, which you'll need in case of a power outage in Project Zomboid in one of these trailers.
