Important Notes for Server Admins
With each update for the game, we’re going to be taking the time to go through the patch notes and identify key parts of the patch notes that are relevant for server administrators.
We’ll do our best to explain what these changes mean for you so that you may run your server effectively.
With the new update comes a new gameplay mechanic that requires players to feed their captured Thralls regularly. The maximum number of days that a Thrall can go unfed for is seven, with the rate of damage beyond the seven days to be configured via the new server config variable that we’ve listed for you below.
<value> represents the percentage of maximum damage that a thrall can take if going hungry for 7 ingame days, between a value of 0.0000 (max 0% over time) to 1.0000 (max 100%, leading to the possible death of thralls). By setting the value to 0.0000, you can disable the mechanic altogether.
You can find the alter the new variables from the following filepath, however you’ll either need to add them manually or login via the in-game admin menu with your RCON password and alter the values for them to be inserted by the game.
File Manager > ConanSandboxSavedConfigWindowsServerServerSettings.ini
Here are the default ServerSettings.ini config values if you want to add them in yourself. Remember to restart your server for it to take effect.
