How to Change Your Palworld Server Settings


In this article, you will learn how to change your Palworld server settings, as well as what each variables are.

Introduction

It’s already been nearly two months since launch and Palworld is just in Early Access, so if you’re getting issues with play, there’s some settings in your Palworld server you can change.

How to edit your PalWorldSettings.ini File

  • Head over to the File Manager
  • Go to the PalWorldSettings.ini located in Saved/Config/LinuxServer/PalWorldSettings.ini

Make sure to backup your PalWorldSettings.ini file. If you make changes you don't like you can then easily revert back to your old settings.

Below is the default Palworld Server Config which you can copy to your PalWorldSettings.ini file.
