Gameplay Config

The values previously controlled by the gamemode [e.g. easy, hard] are now available for you to choose! Clicking the "Advanced" button on the singleplayer menu will take you to the configuration screen where you can adjust everything. This uses reflection which means it will be straightforward to add more options in the future, and is shared with the server. You can manually modify these values in "Config.json" found in your server folder, or set it up with the tool in the menu and copy it over from the singleplayer worlds folder.


You can configure the frequency and duration of rainstorms with the Rain command. Remember that you can type "help rain" to get some info on how it works! Note however that the changes won't be able to apply until the next rain cycle. You can start/stop the current rain cycle with the Storm command.To enable rain for your custom map you'll need to copy over the latest Ambience.unity3d and tick the "can rain" checkbox under lighting in the editor.


Unity recently added built-in analytics support, so I hooked up a few events in Unturned:
  • Death Cause
  • Framerate Min/Max/Avg
  • Customization Choices
Once a bit of this data is recorded I'll hopefully be able to upload it somewhere so you can see! Should be interesting to get an idea of what specialities are often used, how players die the most and what the average framerate is.
