[Release] Serverside VisualSettings - Stream Custom visualsettings.dat!


Here’s a simple parser for visualsettings.dat, allowing you to stream customized visuals to your clients. This takes advantage of the SET_VISUAL_SETTING_FLOAT native.

Example Showcase: (this is the default visualsettings.dat that comes by default, change this how you see fit)

  • weather.CycleDuration - will crash the client (which is why it is excluded in the parser so don’t worry)

  • I wrote it (self deprecating is the best)


Download the latest release here and rename the resource folder to VisualSettings, then add the resource to your server.cfg or however you run your ship.

This has not been tested thoroughly and should only be used by people who know somewhat what they’re doing.

Have fun, and for the love of god don’t force what visuals you think look best on everyone.


Nice release. Keep up the good work!

Noice. I Will Be Sure To Test

This requires an server artifact version of at least 916 or 917 (not sure which one included the commit).

Just a reminder before users say that this resource doesn’t work.

COOL good job

Jark when you are going to fix that big with weather change ?

I don’t think he can fix that. It’s a core game bug.
