How To: Add yourself as an admin

Post by Ragonz » Mon Nov 13, 2017 12:42 pm

1. Log into your game panel and navigate to your Colony Survival server
2. Go to configuration files and open up permissionusers.json
3. edit the file so it looks like this

{
"Server" : {
"permissions" : [""]
},
"Localhost" : {
"includes" : ["peasant"],
"permissions" : ["cheats.enable"]
},
"Steam: ###############" : {
"includes" : ["god"],
"permissions" : ["printbiome","getlimit","setlimit","resetlimit"]
},
"Steam: ##############" : {
"includes" : ["god"],
"permissions" : ["printbiome","getlimit","setlimit","resetlimit"]
},
}

(Replace the ########## with the steam64id of anyone you want to be an admin)

4. save the file then restart the server

5. You should now see in game that you are an admin.

Where is the web console at, all I see is Configuration Files, Commandline Manager, File Manager, Steam Update, Current Activity and Stats, Reset World.

The guide has been updated as the webconsole no longer is compatible with the current version of the game.
