In prior versions of 7 Days to Die, the blood moon horde pretty much lasted from 22:00 to 4:00, and the horde promptly stopped spawning at that point. Now in Alpha 17.4, I've started a new random gen single player game, and had my 7th day horde. At around 1:20am, no more zombies spawned. I know there's a limit to the number that can spawn at once, and I've seen them start wandering before, so I jumped down and ran around looking, and couldn't find a single one. I did notice, however, that the color of the moon was no longer red. I've not seen this in any patch notes that I can recall, but does the color of the moon indicate when the blood moon horde is over?

As you can see in my screenshot, the sky seems the normal horde-night orange/red color, but the moon is grey. Could this be the indicator?

  • It might be a bug - In the latest version of the game (Alpha 18.4) I've had blood moon hordes continue throughout the entire night. But if I died, the horde seems to stop for a bit. If I ran around some, zombies began to appear again. I've also noticed that sometimes when 00:00 o clock rolls in, the red atmosphere goes back to normal, but then turns red again after a few moments. Needless to say it's pretty strange behavior. – Timmy Jim Mar 12 at 14:23
