Hey Islanders,

Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent hordetest, we're now pushing our latest build to the Evrima Public Branch! As mentioned in an earlier Discord announcement, for this patch, we'll be experimenting with a new server variant based on feedback gathered from our recent Hordetest. These servers will support higher playercounts of 150 without AI, and are based in both NA and EU regions. Initially there will only be two servers of this extra type available, but we will spin up additional servers of this variant as necessary and will remain available for as long as player interest dictates.

Please note; Our regular 100 slot AI enabled servers will still be available alongside the experimental ones.

Additionally, here's an example Game.ini for server owners to utilize the latest server functionality.

AdminsSteamIDs="Admin steam ID here"
AdminsSteamIDs="Admin steam ID here"
WhitelistIDs="White list steam ID here" - needs to be enabled in the GameSession below, keep this empty if whitelist is disabled
WhitelistIDs="White list steam ID here"
AllowedClasses=Dryosaurus - List of all enabled classes - can also be managed in Admin Panel in real time

ServerName="Server name here"
ServerPassword="password here"
RconPassword="password here"
ServerDayLengthMinutes=45 - Set in minutes
ServerNightLengthMinutes=20 - Set in minutes
bServerWhitelist=false - Add whitelist steam ids in GameStateBase section above
AISpawnInterval=40 - Set in seconds (how frequente it checks to Spawn new AIs)
DisallowedAIClasses=Compsognathus - Add the names of each AI class that should be disabled, one line for each
MaxMigrationTime=5400 - Set in seconds - how frequent migration zones change
GrowthMultiplier=1 - Universal multiplier for growth, putting this number too high will stop it to work (stay below ~40)
