Configuring Ares

  • [config]

AresMUSH is ready to go out of the box with a default configuration based on a Battlestar Galactica setting. Most games will want to customize Ares to their own theme and preferences.

Essential Config

The Essential Config Tutorial will walk you through some configuration settings that you’ll almost certainly want to change, as well as teaching you the basics of how to edit config files.

General Config

These articles detail all of the config settings available in the game.

Uncommon Config

These configuration options will probably not need to be changed unless your server or database changes.

FS3 Config

If you intend to use the FS3 skills/combat systems, you’ll want to review these settings.

Basic FS3 Config

These are the basic configuration options that most games will need to tweak for their theme/setting.

FS3 Gear Config

The default gear lists are designed for a Battlestar setting. If you’re using another setting, you’ll probably need to tweak the gear lists. If you have custom vehicles or unusual combatant types (like six-legged aliens.html), you’ll need to adjust the hit location tables.

Advanced FS3 Config

These are advanced customization settings that most games won’t need to alter.
