 IGameSession:

Below are settings that will work under the [/Script/PathOfTitans.IGameSession] header.

 ServerName=  Setting the public name of your ServerName is a crucial step to ensure accessibility and effective communication within your network. To add spaces to your Server Name, you can include an underscore "_, "which will act as syntax spacing. Note: GameServersHub runs the Path of Titans on Linux Machines which don't require underscores.
 MaxPlayers=100  Specifies the maximum number of players allowed on the server.
 ServerPassword=  Set a password for accessing the server to ensure authorized access only.
 bServerPaidUsersOnly=false  Enable Free-to-Play Access: Determine whether the server permits users to join without payment.
 bServerAllowChat=true  Enhance Communication Control: Enable or disable text chat functionality for the entire server, granting you greater control over communication.

 bServerFish=true  Control Fish Population: Toggle the spawning of fish, giving you the ability to either enable or disable it.
 bServerWaterQualitySystem=true  Manage Water Quality System: This feature allows you to enable or disable the water quality system per your needs.
 bOverrideWaterRegeneration=false

 Control Water Regeneration Override: This feature enables or disables the override function for water regeneration. If this setting is turned off, the system will revert to using predefined   default values.

 bEnableWaterRegeneration=true  Configure Water Regeneration: This feature determines if water will replenish over time. If you choose to disable this, it is crucial to have water restoration quests in your hosted map;   otherwise, the water supply could eventually deplete.
 WaterRegenerationRateMultiplierUpdate=180  This involves updating the multiplier for the water regeneration rate.
 WaterRegenerationRate=60  This refers to the duration, in seconds, before water begins to regenerate. Setting this value too low prompts the server to update water levels more frequently, which could potentially   lead to server lag.
 WaterRegenerationValue=10  This refers to the volume of water replenished during each cycle. The actual amount scales based on the size of the water body.
 WaterRainRegenerationIncrement=20.0  Multiplier that increases the amount of water restored when it rains.
 bServerWaystoneCooldownRemoval=true  This function permits or restricts players from using marks to initiate a cooldown on Waystones.
 OverrideWaystoneCooldown=-1  This setting allows you to alter the cooldown period for Waystones in seconds. If set to -1, the default cooldown duration will be utilized.
 bServerAllowInGameWaystone=true  This function allows the acceptance of Waystone invites within the game by resting for 30 seconds in a secure zone.

 bServerAutoRestart=false  This function facilitates the automatic rebooting of the server.
 RestartLengthInSeconds=10800  This setting determines the interval, in seconds, between each automatic server restart. Players will receive warnings at intervals of 2 and 1 hour, 30, 10, 5, and 1 minute, as well as 10,   5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 seconds before the restart.
 ServerDeadBodyTime=0  This setting indicates the duration, in seconds, for which a deceased character's body will remain. A value of 0 implies that the body will remain indefinitely.

When enabled, players start in a tutorial zone at zero growth, and upon completing quests, they reach 0.3 growth before   exiting. If disabled, players will directly spawn into the world at 0.3 growth, bypassing the tutorial altogether.

 GlobalPassiveGrowthPerMinute=0  This feature allows adding extra passive growth per second to all dinosaurs. Remember that the total growth equals 1, so a suitable value might be 0.005.
