Timetable

The Timetable allows for automatic task to be done. Like automatic wipes, backups, restarts, chats, etc...

Actions: The task that should be done

  • Chat (Max 1 each 4 minutes, to prevent global chat spam)
  • Save (saves the tool-data)
  • Load (data from server (only for FTP acitve))
  • Backup (includes restart and cleanup of old backups)
  • Server Stop / Restart
  • Wipe (includes restart and backup)
  • Structure Backup (makes a smaler backup with only structures, no restart of server)
  • Shared Cleanup (cleans up old structures in the shared folder)
  • Playfield Structure Limit Check (set in playfields; sends out warnings. see "Structure Limit Control")
  • Playfield Max Overall Structure Check (set in playfields; sends out warnings. see "Structure Limit Control")
  • Player Cleanup (cleans up old players who never came back)
  • Toggle PVPVE (toggles the PVP/PVE setting of a playfield (multiple playfields seperated by #). This one does no restart but needs a restart to apply. Therefore set it for example 30 minutes before a restart.)
  • Backup Tool (Makes a backup of the tool data)
  • Player Online Check (In case telnet is one day not working correct again and it looks like you have massive players online use this to correct those players who are actually not logged in anymore)
