    I have experience with a multitude of dedicated servers Including 7d2d, Minecraft, WOW Wrath Server Emulator using trinity core, Empyrion, Ark, and a few other random MMO and FPS Servers as well.

    Need help with your private server? I can help you with...

    *Configuring or helping you learn to use Empyrion Admin Helper, Playfield Designer, and a huge list of Other applications.
    *Yaml File Editing / Basic customization or modifications
    *Planet / Playfield creation
    *Custom Events
    *Temporary Professional In Game Administration
    *Galaxy Creation
    *Links and Research
    *Community Management using Concrete5, Wordpress, Enjin, and PHPBB (Hosting with godaddy, Dreamhost, Hostgator).

    Ive been offering this for a few months now and have had some decent success with it (I get requests daily now). I figured I would make the offer public should anyone else be interested in the help since Im currently working from home full time at the moment.

    Connect to our discord FIRST here to make sure that I can actually help you (once in a while I get crazy requests) - CLICK HERE

    Talk to my admins and my community. Check out the website. Log onto a server or two!

    Speak With Chilimeat in our discord!

    What do i ask for in return? Make a donation to our community! Doesnt matter if its just a dollar or maybe a little bit more!

    All donations are processed via paypal and go to helping pay for our community, better hardware for our server cluster, and my time!

    I'd like to point out that every penny of the donations goes back into the gaming community.

    Keith is nothing if not committed.

    I need help configuring a banned list in my adminconfig.yaml

    My Elevated list is set up and works as it should, but the instructions in the example file are pretty weak when it comes to explaining the creation of a Banned list! Do you know how I should format this list? What number should I put for 'Until' if "when hell freezes over" isn't actually an option? lol

    Thank you in advance! :)

    Use the ban command in game to verify formatting and gain an example in your file. Once you ban an id, it can easily be unbanned as well. So... ban 1234567890 1024m hahhaahahha. 85 years should be close enough to "When Hell Freezes Over"

    So for example...

    Code:
    Banned:
    - Id: 76561198171910825
      Until: 2102-08-06T19:52:39.8488683-04:00
    
    Would be what I ended up with the first time i did a ban. The first 4 digits are the year hahahaha. Now i just copy it for players. I can definitely say that in 85 years i wont be running this server any more lol.

    As always if you appreciate the help Drop us a donation @ https://unknownskies.net/shop/ even if it is just a Dollar or two! Site is secured and all transactions are processed by paypal :) Every dime goes towards our community and its development.

    Came into your discord earlier but everyone was in AFK, been trying to get admin setup on the server I've done the adminconfig file in the relevant save game, stuck in my steam64ID and it refuses to reconise me in game. Below is the current config

    Code:
    # Admin Configuration
    
    # This file can contain two lists: one with elevated players with special permissions
    # and one with banned players.
    
    # 'Id' is a SteamID64 in both lists, lookup possible at https://steamid.io/
    # 'Permission' is 3 for 'GameMaster', 6 for 'Moderator' and 9 for 'Admin' - other values are not allowed.
    # 'Until' is the time when the ban ends.
    
    Elevated:
    - Id: 76561197973220100
      Permission: 9
    - Id: 00000000000000000
      Permission: 6
    - Id: 00000000000000000
      Permission: 3
    
    
    Any idea how to fix?

    I'd like to make an appointment with you this weekend. We are having a few issues I need clarified. I'm willing to donate for your time.

    Let me know if you are available.

    Thanks,
    Roc/Jack

    Do you have access to empyrion admin helper? Asking because it simplifies things...

    Code:
    allowed.
    # 'Until' is the time when the ban ends.
    
    Elevated:
    - Id: 76561197973220100  <--  Should be your User ID
      Permission: 9                              <--  Should be highest perm level
    
    Double check that your ID is correct and that its in the right place (should be but double check anyways)!
    
    Do not put anything else in there!!  THOSE two lines should be all thats required!.  Double check spacing and such as well.    Small things can really botch up YAML files.

    Pretty cool 'service' to offer the server admins. Even I run into issues with random things sometimes. You might get a PM from me in the future. :)

    We experiment a lot so I know how that goes. That and with a real lack of documentation it makes managing the server require quite a bit of trial and error until you get a feel for its limitations. You should have seen me getting the galaxy to orbit on a daily basis hahahaha. That was fun.
