PixARK Server Settings

PixARK offers almost endless configuration of game mechanics, server settings, and more!

There are multiple ways to configure PixARK, including startup arguments, world config files, game config files, and beyond. Startup arguments are always overriden by any config files.

Required Startup Query Arguments

Argument Description
?MaxPlayers={players} Sets the max players allowed on the server
?SessionName={name} Sets the server name that appears on the in-game server browser
?Port={port} Sets the server port
?QueryPort={queryPort} Sets the server query port
?RCONPort={rconPort} Sets the server RCON port

Many of these options are available for one-click configuration under the "Game Settings" section within NodePanel.
