Serverconfig help needed


Recommended Posts

First off all, we did something stoopid. We had some issues with the serverconfig settings (people not disagreeing on how it should look like, tried.. had some altering stuff). I do know not everyone should have access to the server, but we share a server between friends and all have the password (BlueFang). So what's done is done. We'll coordinate it next time.


Now I'd like to fix the serverconfig.xml. Can I just delete it and will it create a new one like with the game seed?


I've tried to find a "clean" serverconfig.xml but couldn't find one on the forums. We're playing A17 b240. If we can't just regenerate it, would someone have a clean .xml? We now have a better understanding what works/what not. It's not broken, but we altered a lot of things like blocks, chunk sizes etc. So I'm afraid that we'll run into serious server issues over time.

If your server has a large number of players you can increase this limit to add more wildlife. Animals don't consume as much CPU as zombies.

NOTE: That this doesn't cause more animals to spawn arbitrarily: The biome spawning system only spawns a certain number of animals in a given

area, but if you have lots of players that are all spread out then you may be hitting the limit and can increase it.

<property name="HideCommandExecutionLog" value="0"/> <!-- Hide logging of command execution. 0 = show everything, 1 = hide only from Telnet/ControlPanel, 2 = also hide from remote game clients, 3 = hide everything -->

You can use console commands to change at least some of them ingame.
