Urban Terror-Specific CVARsEdit

These CVars are not a part of Quake 3, but specific to Urban Terror.

Server Name & Daily SettingsEdit

  1. set sv_hostname "" // Your server name here.
  2. set g_motd "" // Your message of the day here, it is displayed while connecting.
  3. set sv_joinmessage "" // Your join message here, it is displayed when the game is joined.

General Game SettingsEdit

  1. set sv_maxclients "12" // Max client slots available on the server, using more than 16 is not recommend. It can cause lag and most levels are not built for it (Default 12).
  2. set g_maxGameClients "0" // Max clients that can actually join the game. Other clients will be forced to spectator. (Default 0=all)
  3. set sv_privateClients "0" // Number of private slots. This number will be reserved for players who enter the right private password.
  4. set g_gametype "4" // 0=FreeForAll, 3=TeamDeathMatch, 4=Team Survivor, 5=Follow the Leader, 6=Capture and Hold, 7=Capture The Flag, 8=Bombmode. (Default 4)
  5. sets sv_dlURL "urbanterror.info" // Sets the address for auto-downloading.

Auto-download only works on ioUrbanTerror clients. The client will try to download <sv_dlURL>/q3ut4/mapname.pk3. So if your server is running ut4_coolmap and sv_dlURL is set to 'yoursite.com/maps', make sure the maps is hosted at http://www.yoursite.com/maps/q3ut4/ut4_coolmap.pk3. Leaving this set 'urbanterror.info' will make it use a map mirror with the most common maps on it. If you got your own hosting, please us that though, to save bandwidth.

Also note that you should NOT include http:// in the URL: anything after // is counted as a comment!
