Configuration adapts server to individual needs of the owner and players. A person with access to server files can change almost all parameters, such as maximum number of players, password and many others.

If you want to configure your American Truck Simulator server follow this guide:

1. Stop American Truck Simulator server

Navigate “Console” tab in your server panel. Here you can find “Stop” button which can stop your server after click on it.

2. Navigate “Startup” tab to start basic configuration

This tab contains the most important parameters of your server – you can change them without editing the configuration file. The table below shows all variables you can change in “Startup” tab.

Auto update ON This variable allows you to update your server in line with Steam updates when is ON. Turn OFF to disable this option.
Steam Auth token Assign GSLT token to the server.
Server Name default hostname Assign name for your server.
Max Players 8 Set maximum amount of players on your server.
Password Set password for your server. Password is not required.
Max Vehicles 100 Specify total number of AI vehicles allowed on the map.
Player Damage true Enable/disable player collisions.
Traffic true Enable/disable traffic.
Force Speed Limiter false Enable/disable speed limiter.
Service No Collision false Enable/disable collisions on service area.
In Menu Ghosting false Enable/disable collisions when game is paused.

3. Perform advanced configuration

If you are not satisfied with the server configuration performed in the “Startup” tab, you can feel free to continue it in the main configuration file. To do this, you need to go to your server’s files in the “Files” tab and find the file named server_config.sii – you will find its location by following this path: /home/container/.local/share/American Truck Simulator/server_config.sii
