How to Adjust Your Unturned Server Settings

Changing your Unturned server settings is a great way to customize your gaming experience and gain more control over your server. Luckily, it is very easy to do so via your control panel.

NOTE: These settings are set per-world. This means that if you change your world name, you will need to change your server settings again for the new world. If you have multiple worlds on your server, ensure that you select the config file for the correct world.
