Options for Command Line ONLY

-allcores deprecated option to utilize all available server cores
-AllowAnyoneBabyImprintCuddle=true Use this if you want ANYONE to be able to “take care” of a Baby Dino (cuddle etc), not just whomever Imprinted on it.
-ClearOldItems Official PvP servers one-time Clearance of all old unequipped items (with the exception of blueprints, eatables, notes, and quest items), to ensure fairness after Item Duplication bug exploit. Server admins can enforce this once if they run with this command argument (will only work ONCE on pre-update save games) Patch 178.0
-culture=en You can also directly override the language by using this commandline
-d3d10 The game is forced to use DX10 instead of DX11 by sm4. Be sure to launch it accurately, you are not going to miss out on anything. Only for Windows
-DisableImprintDinoBuff=true Use this to disable the Dino Imprinting-Player Stat Bonus, if you don’t like it (where whomever specifically imprinted on the Dino, and Raised it to have an Imprinting Quality, gets extra Damage/Resistance buff)
-EnableIdlePlayerKick Cause characters that have not moved or interacted within the KickIdlePlayersPeriod to be kicked.
-EnableExtraStructurePreventionVolumes=true Use this to completely disable building in specific resource-rich areas, in particular setup on TheIsland around the major mountains.
-ForceAllowCaveFlyers Force Flyer dinos to be allowed into caves (Flyers able to go into caves by default on custom maps)
-ForceRespawnDinos Official Servers?? Relaunching with this command to destroy all wild creatures to flush out NPC’s to new Biome configurations. (this will only destroy wild creatures that are NOT currently being tamed
-gameplaylogging Survival of the Fittest servers can launch with this commandline option to output a dated log file to \Saved folder, which will contain a timestamped kill & winners log listing steam id, steam name, character name, etc. Handy for automatic Tournament records…
-insecure Disable Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) system. Only possible on Windows Servers
-lowmemory Launch options that reduces graphics and audio effects to save about 800 MB RAM, likely enabling 4GB RAM players to get past infinite-loading screens
-MapModID=######### Dedicated servers can now optionally load custom maps via ModID diectly, rather than having to specify the map name directly, using this syntax (where the MapModID is the Steam Workshop FileID of your custom map, and the GameModIds are the Id’s of the stacked mods you wish to use, in order)
-noantispeedhack Anti speedhack detection is now enabled by default — to disable it, use this server commandline
-nocombineclientmoves Server player-move-physics optimization is now enabled by default (improves perf) — to disable it, use this server commandline
-noninlinesaveload Fixed a savegame corruption case with large savegames: this is experimental, so try with this command, if you have any saves that don’t load. We’ll formally roll this loader change out in a subsequent patch after we’re 100% certain it has no side effects.
-nomansky Lots of detailed sky features are disabled, such as clouts and starry night sky. This decreases all of those but you can still have them. You still obtain the stars, the sun, and the moon. This just helps you remove the sparkling stars that make you sightless at night
-OverideStructurePlatformPrevention=true Use this if you want Auto-Turrets to be buildable/working on those Dino saddle platforms 😉
-PreventOfflinePvP=true Use this to enable the offline raiding prevention option.
-PreventOfflinePvPInterval=900 That would be a 15 min wait before a tribe/players dinos/structures become invulnerable/inactive after they log off. (if Tribe, requires ALL Tribe members logged off!)
-ShowFloatingDamageText=true Use this to enable RPG-style popup text stat mode.
-servergamelog Enable Server Admin Logs (including RCON support) use RCON command “getgamelog” to print 100 entries at a time also outputs to dated file in in “\Logs”, adjust max length of RCON buffer with commandline: “?RCONServerGameLogBuffer=600”
-server deprecated option for server mode
-sm4 The game is forced to use Shader Model 4 instead of the Shader Model 5 as usual. Well, there is no much difference, the game still looks and feels the same, but you can obtain better performance (Windows only?) (reported to increase frames but changes the game lighting). Only Windows
-StructureDestructionTag=DestroySwampSnowStructures One-Time Auto-Structure Demolish on Swamp and Snow Zones: To do this, which you can only execute once after updating to v216, run your server or game with this commandline
-USEALLAVAILABLECORES All of your CPU cores will be used, if all of them are not being utilized after using this launch option, then try to disable it!
-UseBattlEye Enables Battleye
-usecache ~70% faster loading speed option. Choose “Experiment Fast Load Cache” launch option (use add “-usecache” to your launch commandline manually). After the first & second times that you start the game & load will be still be slow, but the third time onwards will be fast. This is testing a new caching method. If it works well, will then ship with the prebuilt cached files so that it’ll always be fast even first-time, and we’ll do this for all the maps as well.
-vday Activate Valentine’s Day Event
