Cheating in Project Zomboid is possible through the use of various methods, such as debug mode, mods, and cheat engine.
Debug mode allows players to see extra information about the game, including FPS and memory usage. To enable debug mode, add the -debug launch parameter to the game prior to booting it up. This will enable the debug icon on the left side of the UI, which allows players to edit values, turn on/off cheats, and more.
Enabling mods allows players to use custom content created by other players. To do this, you will need to install the mod files and then activate them in the game’s mod menu.
Using cheat engine allows players to change game values such as health and damage, and to spawn items and enemies. To use cheat engine with Project Zomboid, you will need to download the program and then open the game’s process in cheat engine. You can then change values and spawn items as desired. Keep in mind that some players have found that the game’s values may be constantly changing, making it difficult to use cheat engine effectively.
If you are playing on a multiplayer server, you can enter console commands by typing them into the in-game chat (opened by pressing the T key on your keyboard). As the server administrator, you have the ability to input console commands to enable cheats and make other changes to the game.
It is worth noting that cheating can ruin the game for other players and may result in a ban from the server. Additionally, using cheats can remove the challenge and sense of accomplishment from the game.
Project Zomboid is currently in development for a Creative Mode, which will allow players to build maps for the game faster and more easily. This mode will let players edit the map in any way they can imagine. It is not yet clear when this mode will be released.
