What does the 7D2D Blood Moon Notifier do?

The 7D2D Blood Moon Notifier is a small program that will monitor one or more 7D2D servers, and finds the current server time. The program will then convert the time, and try to find out how long until the need in-game Blood Moon will hit.

During a Blood Moon day, the notifier will send you desktop notifications that tell you there's a Blood Moon event coming up on that server. Optionally, it will also send you an email, giving you a heads up!

It will also report to you how many players are online

Why do we need a 7D2D Blood Moon Notifier?

The Blood Moon Notifier was created to help deal with the aggressive hordes on the Official Forum Fanatics servers. This allows members of the server to monitor the server when they are not playing, and get alerted if there is a Blood Moon. It will also let you know how many players are online. We created this application so that individuals would not have to fight a strong 7th Day Horde alone.

Does this work for every 7 Days To Die Server?

The Blood Moon Notifier will only work on multi-player servers that have their query port opened.

The Blood Moon Notifier works by connecting to a 7 Days To Die Server's Query Port, which is typically the server's IP address that you connect to, plus the port number you use to connect to, plus 1. So if the Server's game port is 26000, then the Query Port will be 26001.

By default, the Blood Moon Notifier asks for the game port, then increments the port in the background for you.
