Line 1: Line 1:
The BZFlag Server (BZFS) allows administrators to configure a large number of gameplay and configuration settings from within the client.  The /set command in-game allows users with the appropriate permissions to change these values.  These may also be known as BZDB variables and "/set variables" depending on who you speak with.
 
 
Unless otherwise noted, time values are measured in seconds, distances in [[world units]], and speeds in [[world units]] per second.
 
 
{{InfoBox|Note|Some values, such as _worldSize, only take affect at server start since they affect the world file that is generated.  It is recommended to apply these in the map file so they are loaded with the map.}}
