Thread: Server Admins - Ingame Admin Tool

    Server Admins - Ingame Admin Tool

    Hello

    This thread describes how to use the recently added ingame admin system (Coming very soon)



    The server requires a privileges.xml file to be present inside the Assets folder (next to all the .pak files)

    To add this file, you will have to connect to your server via FTP and transfer the file. You can find the connection details (username, password, IP and port) on the G-Portal website after having logged in and selected your server. An option will soon be added on the G-Portal website where the file can be edited, same as when editing the dedicated.cfg Configuration file.

    Contents of the file:

    Code:
    <Privileges>
    	<Privilege Name="Moderator">
    		<SteamIDs>
    			<SteamID id="1234567890123457" showColors="1"/> <!-- Name here -->
    			<SteamID id="1234567890123458" showColors="1"/> <!-- Name here -->
    		</SteamIDs>
    		<Commands>
    			<Command Name="kick"/>
    			<Command Name="weather.stormfactor.setnewtarget"/>
    			<Command Name="e_timeofday"/>
    			<Command Name="sv_say"/>
    			<Command Name="sv_password"/>
    			<Command Name="sv_servername"/>
    			<Command Name="Admin.ShowAdminStatus"/>
    		</Commands>
    	</Privilege>
    	<Privilege Name="Administrator">
    		<SteamIDs>
    			<SteamID id="1234567890123459" showColors="1"/> <!-- Name here -->
    		</SteamIDs>
    		<Commands bHasPrevious="true">
    			<Command Name="banuser"/>
    			<Command Name="unbanuser"/>
    			<Command Name="game.skirmish.setnextarea"/>
    			<Command Name="game.skirmish.forceendround"/>
    		</Commands>
    	</Privilege>
    	<Privilege Name="Senior Administrator">
    		<SteamIDs>
    			<SteamID id="1234567890123456" showColors="1"/> <!-- Name here -->
    		</SteamIDs>
    		<Commands bHasPrevious="true">
    			<Command Name="g_teamSizeMaxUserPercentageDifference"/>
    		</Commands>
    	</Privilege>
    	<Privilege Name="Custom Privilege Rank">
    		<SteamIDs>
    			<SteamID id="12345678901234569" showColors="1"/> <!-- Name here -->
    		</SteamIDs>
    		<Commands bHasPrevious="true">
    			
    		</Commands>
    	</Privilege>
    </Privileges>
    Complex setup with multiple admin ranks

    Simple setup with just one admin rank that can use all the specified commands
    Download XML file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nar7kobktb...leges.xml?dl=0

    Notice the various groups <Privilege Name="Administrator">. These groups allow you to have different ranks of moderators with different abilities, defined by the commands in that group <Command Name="kick"/>. If bHasPrevious is set to true is defined <Commands bHasPrevious="true">. This group will also be able to use the commands from the previous group.

    You can remove any group you want, incase you wanted all admins to have the same abilities. You can also add new groups if lets say, you wanted to have 10 different admin tiers.

    Here is a list of commands that might be useful, though technically, any command can be added. The UI is currently hardcoded to always list the same buttons, the buttons will however only function if the related commands are available for that particular users Admin Group. If you add commands that are not available in the UI, they can be triggered by typing them in the console like so: admin.command e_timeofday 11.5

    We'll add more examples later

    • kick //Kicks someone. - Syntax: admin.command kick [PlayerName] Example: admin.command kick [CG]FancySweetroll
    • banuser //Bans someone. - Syntax: admin.command banuser [SteamID] '[Reason]' [Duration in Seconds] Example: admin.command banuser 2234567890123456 'He was being rude' 86400
    • unbanuser //Unbans someone. - Syntax: admin.command unbanuser [SteamID] Example: admin.command unbanuser 2234567890123456
    • e_timeofday //Changes the current time of day. - Syntax: admin.command e_timeofday [0-24] Example: admin.command e_timeofday 11.5
    • weather.stormfactor.setnewtarget //Sets a new target for the weather system to slowly move towards, more or less 30 minutes later, a new stormfactor target will randomly be generated. - Syntax: admin.command weather.stormfactor.setnewtarget [0.0 - 1.0] Example: admin.command weather.stormfactor.setnewtarget 0.6
    • g_teamSizeMaxUserPercentageDifference //Controls how much of a percentage, the teams can be offset in terms of amount of players. Set to 1 to completely disable auto balance. - Syntax: admin.command g_teamSizeMaxUserPercentageDifference [0.0 - 1.0] Example: admin.command g_teamSizeMaxUserPercentageDifference 0.03


    How to find SteamIDs

    The SteamID is located in the url once a player has been found and selected
    Steam Search: https://steamcommunity.com/search/users/

    If the players SteamID from the previous link is not a number, then use this method, insert the whole steam URL from the previous URL
    The SteamID to use is the numbers in steamID64
    SteamID Finder: https://steamidfinder.com/

    When changing skirmish area, you can in the console type game.skirmish.areas which will print the available skirmish areas for the current map, in the console. Next to each skirmish area is a number. For example on Antietam, Dunker Church has number 11. So to switch to that skirmish area. Press E, then enter 11 in the text field to the left of the button Set Next Skirmish Area. Click the button. If you then let the current skirmish area play to the end, the next area will be the specified one. You can however also click Force End Round, which will immediately end the current round and switch to the next round. If no area has been set by an admin, Force End Round simply just moves the game on to the next skirmish area in line.

    Players are added to these groups inside <SteamIDs> </SteamIDs> tags. Here is an example:

    Code:
    <SteamIDs>
    	<SteamID id="1234567890123456"/> <!-- Johny -->
    	<SteamID id="1234567890123457"/> <!-- Reb -->
    	<SteamID id="1234567890123458"/> <!-- Charlie -->
    	<SteamID id="1234567890123459"/> <!-- Joe -->
    </SteamIDs>
    When banning players, they will be added to a banlist.json file inside the Assets folder. For example for our official servers, banned players are added to "War of Rights Official 12 - US East.json" One way to remove a ban without having to wait for the ban to expire by time, would be to remove this file or open it and remove the particular player ban entry. A different way to unban somebody would be to connect to the server with the game and in the console, type admin.command unbanuser 2234567890123456 with the 16 digit number being the SteamID of the player to unban.

    I've helped Fancy test this over the past couple of days. It works really well and is very quick to use, I look forward to seeing more functionality being built in to it over time. For now though, I think it's fair to say that the basic controls have been properly implemented.

    Great stuff. Thank you.

    I assume the "Announce" command in the Context Menu requires a unique privilege flag as well? Is it just <Command Name="announce"/> ?

    Hey real quick, how does the weather work? Doesn't seem to change, no matter the value I use.

    It will change quite slowly (it'll take a few minutes).

    You can see what the weather is doing by typing in the console:

    weather.debug.time=1

    It will show you what the current stormfactor is and what the target is

    Awesome!

    Thank you for the update - quick question. I saw at the end you went into Spectator mode. Are you guys going to implement a button for this? What is the current shortcut key to enter this as the admin?
