Turning off a server till ready to play.

Post by Seronys » Tue Apr 25, 2017 6:18 pm

Me and some friends are looking to purchase one of your servers to play 7 days to die.

The problem with this, is as time progresses this game gets harder, and of course we can't play 24/7 (unfortunately :P). So would it be possible that whenever we all wanted to call it quits for the night, to shutdown the server, as so to stop time, and pick up right where we left off. Kinda like creating a save point, but shutting down the server until ready sounds easier :P

What's Frag Mean?

The way 7DtD works is that as long as there are no players connected, time stops. As soon as a single person connects, time resumes. So - as long as you password your server, there should not be an issue.

However, there is also a way to start and stop the server on demand via the in game control panel.
