James Burlison edited this page Jul 9, 2019 · 21 revisions

The configuration file is located here by default:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Colony Survival\gamedata\savegames\*WORLD-NAME*\Pandaros.Settlers.json

Note: you must start the mod at least once for it to generate the configuration file.

The command /settlersconfig will reload the configuration file.
