The server.cfg is used to change a number of settings on your StarMade server.

It is found in your StarMade folder. This varies from machine to machine.

  • By setting UNIVERSE_DAY_IN_MS = -1, the day-night cycle will be disabled and will stop planets from orbiting. This will also prevent you from getting disoriented when entering or exiting solar systems, as the whole universe will no longer rotate around the sun of the current solar system.
