This is a read only thread. This guide provides basic and important information on various things found throughout the world.
How Randomizing Works *Spinners - Most things will be determined by a spinner. Weather, events, starter inventory, biome selection, starter skills and others will all be determined by a spinner. *Dice Roll - Some things will be determined by a dice roll. Number of animal and zombie spawns, number of various items in an air drop, and other amount related things will be determined by a dice roll. *Random Name Picker - A Name picker may be used in order to choose who gets the next event.
