As a server host, you can add a message of the day for your server, that will be shown to the players upon logging-in.

Message of the day file location and formatting

Getting started

If you wish to use the Message of the Day feature, you need the following:

- In the server's configuration file (see Dedicated Servers), set "bDisplayIntroMessage" to true.
- At the root of your server installation, go to BeastsOfBermuda, and create the following path: Config/Server, then, in the folder Server, you must create a file named MessageOfTheDay.txt.


You are now ready to write the desired message of the day.

Formatting the text file

Note: Currently, only very few formats are supported. More will be added with time based on demand.
If you wish to keep the default formatting, there is nothing but text to write. If you wish to use different colors and text styles, you will need to use formatting.
Note: Every format must be gated between < and > and the format must be closed with </> as following: <Text format>text text text</>

Available formats are as following
- Red writing <red>This text is red!</> will appear red.
- Green writing <green>This text is green!</> will appear green.
- Outlined Green writing <green_outlined>This text is green AND outlined!</> will appear green and outlined.
- Blue writing <blue>This text is blue!</> will appear blue.
- Outlined Blue writing <blue_outlined>This text is green AND outlined!</> will appear blue and outlined.
- More to come.
