Server Management[edit]

Server Config File[edit]

The default server config file is dedicated.yaml.

NOTE:
If you edit this file do not use the Tab key to align your text.
Alignment and spacing is critical in this file. If you are off by one character/space, the server will not start.
In fact the the 2nd line of the file says: The parameters in this config file are space sensitive.

Admin Controls[edit]

The admin configuration file can be found in the /Saves directory. By default it is called adminconfig.example.yaml
In order for it to be used by the game, it needs to be called: adminconfig.yaml

If your adminconfig.yaml file does not exist:

  • you need to rename the adminconfig.example.yaml file to adminconfig.yaml or,
  • open a copy of the adminconfig.example.yaml, locally. Then from the Configuration Editor open the adminconfig.yaml file using the Text Editor and copy and past in the contents, or
  • you can also populate the contents by using a Telnet session to your server and using the setrole command. More on this later.


If manually editing this file you will need the following:
Id is a SteamID64, lookup possible at https://steamid.io/
Permission

  • Elevated - 3 for 'GameMaster', 6 for 'Moderator' and 9 for 'Admin' - other values are not allowed.
  • Banned

Other parameters
Name - this is usually added to the file when a user is made 'Admin' from the Telnet/Game console
Until - is the time when the ban ends.

Example File :

Elevated:
- Id: 00000000000000000 # put the correct SteamID64 here
  Permission: 3         # make this user a GameMaster, for example
- Id: 11111111111111111
  Permission: 9         # make this user a Admin, for example

REMENBER: The parameters in this config file are space sensitive.

Server Customizations[edit]

Uploading your Local files to the server[edit]

Credit: MartinZ for helping figure this out.

  1. Stop your server
  2. Using your favorite FTP client copy your Saves\<saved game> folder in its entirety to the \Saves\Games folder on your server
    Example Local PC: NewGame_1-180221-0936 -> \Saves\Games\NewGame_1-180221-0936
  3. Edit the dedicated.yaml file under the Configuration Files link
  • Make sure the following match your local PC instance
    GameName: matches the name of the folder you just uploaded to the \Saves\Games folder
    Mode:
    Seed:
  1. Save your dedicated.yaml file
  2. Start your server back up
