How to Change the Name and Description of Your Unturned Server

To change your Unturned server’s name, description, and server icon, you can follow the steps provided below.

Changing the Server Name with a Command

  1. Access your server console on your control panel while your server is running.
  2. Enter the command Name “ServerName”, replacing ServerName with what you want your server to be named.
     
    Note: The quotation marks are required for the command to work.

Changing the Server Name Manually

  1. Log in to your server control panel and Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to Files > Config Files.
  3. Click Unturned Commands File.
  4. Change the Name field as desired, then click Save.

    For example: Name A Shockbyte Server becomes Name My Unturned Server.
  5. Restart your server.

Once the server starts up successfully, you will be able to see the updated name.

Changing the Description and Server Icon

  1. Log in to your server control panel and Stop your server.
  2. Upload a 500x500 resolution image to an image-sharing website like Imgur.
     
    Note: Other image resolutions will not work for a server icon.
  3. Navigate to Files > Config Files.
  4. Click Unturned Config JSON.
  5. You should see a Browser section at the top of the file. The following entries will be relevant:

    "Icon": "", controls your server icon.
    "Desc_Hint": "", controls a summarised description displayed beneath the server name.
    "Desc_Full": "", controls the full server description displayed beneath the server map.
  6. To update the icon, insert the image URL within the quotation marks. For example, "Icon": "",  becomes "Icon": "https://i.imgur.com/5Ysvo4Y.png",
  7. Enter your server descriptions within the quotation marks of "Desc_Hint": "", and "Desc_Full": "",.
  8. A completed Browser section should look like the example below:
  9. Click Save and Start your server.

Once the server starts up successfully, you will be able to see any changes you have made.
