Project Zomboid is an open-ended zombie-infested sandbox. It asks one simple question – how will you die? Whether surviving in Knox County free-roam or controlling Indie Stone mascot Baldspot in his quest to save his injured wife Kate – death is always a certainty. Quite how long you manage to put it off is another matter…
A very handy editor made by randomer679. This is just a little program he made to edit sandbox options mid-game. He wanted to be able to turn off zombies at the beginning and then turn them back on later because ... you know :)

This is just a little program I've made so I could edit my sandbox options mid-game. I wanted to be able to turn off zombies at the beginning and then turn them back on later because I'm cowardly like that . Using this program you can edit all of the options you chose when starting a new Sandbox game.
The download is attached to this post at the bottom. To use this program just extract the .jar file and run it using Java!
Windows: Create an empty text file with notepad and fill it with
java -jar PZSaveEditor.jar
then save as anynameyouwant.bat and make sure to set the file type to all files. Place it in the same folder as the .jar and double click it to run.
Linux (and OS X?): You should know this But just in case here's what to do. Create an empty text file and insert the same text as for Windows. Then just double click it and select run in terminal OR run it from a terminal manually.
Once you have the program running just go to file and navigate to your Zomboid save folder. Go into the Sandbox folder and click the folder of the world you want to modify. After clicking open if the world is supported it will load all the current values for you. After this it's pretty much the same as creating a new world with a few differences. To modify some options you will have to enable advanced options. These are just a few that I feel might not be stable. To save your options either click save to just overwrite the options or use save as to save them to a new file. To use that file rename it map_sand.bin and place it in the folder of the world you want to change, overwriting the old one. The reset button only works if you haven't saved yet. It is merely a convenience.
I have not tested most of the options. The program is as bug free as I can tell HOWEVER how the game will be affected from changing the options is beyond my control. Therefore you use this at your own risk so make sure you ALWAYS backup your worlds before making any changes. The reason for not testing how the game will react is because the only option I really need at the moment as explained up there ^ is to be able to modify the Zombie amount. So if you choose to ignore this advice it is your own fault.
You use this at your own risk. While I believe it to be stable and safe, I can not and will not be held responsible for any problems you may have or that may happen whether as a result of your use of this software or not. I WILL however happily try to answer any questions and fix any bugs that you may have.
Feedback about the name please.
I feel the name could be slightly misleading, but I do want it to stay how it is. So please leave a post about whether you think the name is fine. Thanks!
