Configuring Your Unturned Server

To configure your Unturned server, you will need to edit the commands.dat file. This can generally be found in your Servers/<instance name>/Server folder.

Each command in this file will need to be on a new line. They are case sensitive!

Command Arguments Description

Chatrate <integer> Assigns the minimum amount of time between chat messages in order to prevent spam
Cycle <integer> Assigns the day/night cycle in seconds.
Decay <integer> Assigns the amount of time a player, or their group members, can be offline before their structures can be removed by anyone. Default is 604800 (7 days)
