Essential Config - Selecting Plugins

A few Ares plugins are designed to be optional so you can easily disable them if you don’t need them for your game.

  1. Go to Admin -> Setup in the web portal.
  2. Select “Enable or Disable Plugins”.
  3. Check or uncheck plugins to enable/disable them.

For example:

  • If your game doesn’t use military ranks, you’ll want to disable the Ranks plugin.
  • If you plan to use a different skills/chargen system, you can disable FS3 skills and combat.
  • If your game is set on a spaceship or you just hate coded weather, you can turn off the weather system.

If a plugin is not listed on this screen, that means it cannot be disabled without custom code changes. For more information about this, and to learn what happens behind-the-scenes when you disable a plugin, see Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
