ErrorLogLevel=(Error default)
Debug = Logs everything, this is what I use to debug issues, very useful to me if you are having an issue with something
Error = Only logs errors, something that shouldn’t break but I have a catch in place anyway to see if it does
Off = Doesn’t log anything

TimeBasedIncome=(false default)
Enables or disables the time based income system, keep in mind this is a seperate system to the PlayedTimeBonus system.
  • true = Enable time based income
  • false = Disable time based income

LumpSumIncome=(false default)
Configures the time based income system to either wait the full income cycle before handing out their full income amount or break their full income amount into small daily amounts.
  • true = Use a lumpsum payment method, e.g our friend "Bazza" will receive his full 30ARc at the end of the income cycle
  • false = Use a daily trickle payment method, e.g "Bazza" would receive 30ARc divided by the number of days in the income cycle everyday

IncomeFrequency=(0 default)
This is the income cycle, there are 7 timeframes to choose from.
  • 0 = Daily = Everyday. Keep in mind if you use a daily trickle system with this, players will just receive their full income everyday. (30ARc divided by 1 Day = 30ARc Everday)
  • 1 = Weekly = Every 7 Days. (Daily Trickle Example: 30ARc divided by 7 Days = 4.285ARc Everyday)
  • 2 = Fortnightly = Every 2 Weeks. (Daily Trickle Example: 30ARc divided by 14 Days = 2.142ARc Everyday)
  • 3 = Monthly = Every Month. This will take into account exactly how many days are in the current month
  • 4 = Quarterly = Every 3 Months.
  • 5 = Semiannually = Every 6 Months.
  • 6 = Annually = Every Year.

DefaultIncomeAmount=(0 default)
This setting allows you to specify a default income amount to any player that joins your server. A player's income can still be adjusted individually via the Admin Menu.

StartingAmount=(0 default)
The amount set in this setting will be the amount of ARc a new player starts with when they first join your server, this is not a regular income. The first time they join, they will receive this amount so they can purchase any starter packs you want new players to be able to purchase straight away.

MaxARcAllowed=(0 default)
This setting will cap the amount of ARc each player can have at one time.
Leaving this as default 0 will cap ARc at 1000000
Warnings:
  • I am not able to stop players from consuming ARc Bars if they reach the cap.
  • Any additional ARc Bars consumed will still be consumed but the ARc won't get added to the profile.
  • If you are planning to cap ARc, ensure you warn your players not to try to consume ARc Bars if they are at max

PlayedTimeBonus=(false default)
Enables or disables the played time income system. This can be used with or withour the TimeBasedIncome system. It tracks how long each player plays on your server for and rewards them with ARc after a certain amount of time played.
  • true = Enable played time income
  • false = Disable played time income

BonusFrequency=(0 default)
This setting defines how long a player needs to play on your server before they receive the PlayedTimeBonus income amount. The system will track half cycles as well so if the player played for 45mins and you have it set to reward after 1hr, it will automatically keep a record of that 45mins and resume it once the player logs back on. The unit of measurement is in seconds, however, I would suggest keeping it above 15min (900seconds). Personally I have mine set to 2hrs (7200seconds).
  • 900 = Every 15mins of played time (example only)
  • 1800 = 30mins (example only)
  • 3600 = 1hr (example only)
  • 7200 = 2hrs (example only)
  • 14400 = 4hrs (example only)
  • 43200 = 12hrs (example only)
  • 86400 = 24hrs (example only)

Default: 0
Min: 600
Max: 86400

BonusAmount=(0 default)
This setting defines how many ARc the player will receive after the reach the BonusFrequency time you defined.
  • 1 = 1ARc (example only)
  • 5 = 5ARc (example only)

AllNewPlayersEligibleForBonus=(false default)
Now that all players are automatically added to the rewards menu, this option will specify if they are all eligible to receive the PlayedTimeBonus or not when they first join your server. Players can still be individually selected to recieve the bonus or not via the Admin Menu.
  • true = All new players will automatically be eligible for the PlayedTimeBonus.
  • false = All new players will not be eligible for the PlayedTimeBonus.

VaultMaxItemSlots=(300 default)
This setting allows you to change how many item slots the Reward Vault has, by default it has 300 slots and allows values up to a maximum of 1000.

DisableAddItemsToVault=(false default)
Setting this to true will stop the ability for players to place items into the Rewards Vault. Useful for restricting it's use to only be used as a way to purchase rewards. This has been tested with Structures Plus's Pull Feature & Transfer Guns, they all respect the setting and will not allow items to be placed inside the Vault if set to true.
  • true = Restrict Vault to only allow items be removed
  • false = Allows players to place items in the Vault

DisablePurchaseFromNonOwnedLockedVaults=(false default)
Setting this to true will stop players from being able to open the UI and purchase packs from Vaults that are locked unless they are in the same tribe. With this set to true Players can still use vaults that are unlocked, but the player needs to be in the same tribe if the vault is locked.

EnableNotificationsForAllNewPlayers=(false default)
Setting this to true will enable the notifications for any new player that joins the server. Notifications show text on screen when the player receives their income or bonus.
  • true = Enable Notifications for all NEW players (Can still be manually disabled by the player from the Reward Menu
  • false = Disable Notifications for all NEW players (Can still be manually enabled by the player from the Reward Menu

EnableUITool=(false default)
Setting this to true will allow players to use the UI Tool to open the UI remotely. This can be used in any location (boss arenas for example) which is why I'm allowing admins to disable the use of it. If it is set to false, players will still be able to craft it, but when used, will just display a message stating that it is disabled.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS SETTING IS CURRENTLY DISABLED UNTIL THE NEW UI IS COMPLETE. THIS IS HARDCODED TO ALWAYS BE FALSE REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU ENTER IN THE SETTINGS

APIKey=(null default)
This is used to enable communication via the API. Enabling the API will allow the mod to communicate with the TCsAR External Web App and allow it to write to and read from the cloud storage. This allows players and/or packs to be shared across servers even if they aren't in a cluster.
Leaving this blank will disable the API communication and make the mod write to and read from local storage on the server only.

PLEASE NOTE: The value used in this setting is universally unique (do not share it with anyone) and only obtained via the TCsAR App[TimmyCarbine.com].

PlayerLinkKey=(null default)
This determines which shared Player Profile database to write to and read from. Having the same value in this setting on multiple servers will ensure they all use the same Player Profiles.
Leaving this blank will ensure all the Player Profiles used on this server will be only retrieved from and stored in /ShooterGame/Saved/SaveGames/TCsAutoRewards.

PLEASE NOTE: The value used in this setting is universally unique (do not share it with anyone) and only obtained via the TCsAR App[TimmyCarbine.com]. This setting will not function if the API is disabled.

PackLinkKey=(null default)
This determines which shared Packs database to write to and read from. Having the same value in this setting on multiple servers will ensure they all use the same Packs.
Leaving this blank will ensure all the Packs used on this server will be only retrieved from and stored in /ShooterGame/Saved/SaveGames/TCsAutoRewards.

PLEASE NOTE: The value used in this setting is universally unique (do not share it with anyone) and only obtained via the TCsAR App[TimmyCarbine.com]. This setting will not function if the API is disabled.

TimmyCarbine  [developer] Aug 9, 2020 @ 12:19pm 
I'm assuming you are referring to the "Bonus Amount" displayed in the Admin Menu?
The options you have available in the Admin Menu are determined by your INI settings.

Check the FAQ discussion and check the very first section.
