NOTE: Before editing any of the server configuration files, please make sure you have made a backup copy. We can only provide you with an original/default file if you break yours.


1. Login to the Game Panel (click this link for easy access) then go to your Game Service.

Make sure the server isn't running. If it is, press the Stop button.

2. On the left side panel, click on "File Manager".

3. Navigate to your multiplayer missions folder and choose the mission you will play. *if you've changed the mission your server runs, that mission will replace this part of the path.

Chernarus: mpmissions\dayzOffline.chernarusplus\db\
Livonia: mpmissions\dayzOffline.enoch\db

For this example, we will navigate to mpmissions/dayzOffline.chernarusplus/db/. Right click on the types.xml file and click on Edit.

DayZ - types.xml

Where it says "Nominal" under the item, change it to any amount you want.

5. Press the Save & Exit button once you're satisfied with the changes you've made.
