Cron Job

Allows executing commands automatically on the server.

Install on the server (modding guide).


After starting the server, cron.yaml and cron_track.yaml files are created in the config folder.

cron_track.yaml stores the last time a zone was visited. Editing this file is not recommended.

cron.yaml contains the jobs. Jobs are checked every 10 seconds. To understand cron schedules better, check out

Field jobs includes general jobs. For example:

  - command: broadcast center Hello!
    chance: 0.5
    schedule: "0 9 * * *" 

would have a 50% chance of sending a message every day at 9:00 (requires Server Devcommands mod). Times are always in UTC so convert your time zone to that.

Field zone includes zone based jobs. For example:

  - command: locations_reset Crypt2 zone=$$i,$$j start
    inactive: 60
  - command: vegetation_reset rock4_copper zone=$$i,$$j start
    schedule: "0 9 * * *" 

would reset Burial Grounds if the zone hasn't been visited for 1 hour and reset Copper deposits every day at 9:00 (requires Upgrade World mod).

Following parameters are available:

  • $$i: X index of the targeted zone.
  • $$j: Z index of the targeted zone.
  • $$x: X coordinate of the targeted zone.
  • $$y: Y coordinate of the targeted zone (always 0).
  • $$z: Z coordinate of the targeted zone.
