/tg/station v1.0.1

Build Status

IRC: irc:// or if you dont have an IRC client, you can click here.


There are a number of ways to download the source code. Some are described here, an alternative all-inclusive guide is also located at

Option 1: Follow this:

Option 2: Install GitHub::windows from It handles most of the setup and configuraton of Git for you. Then you simply search for the tgstation repository and click the big clone button.

Option 3: Download the source code as a zip by clicking the ZIP button in the code tab of (note: this will use a lot of bandwidth if you wish to update and is a lot of hassle if you want to make any changes at all, so it's not recommended.)


First-time installation should be fairly straightforward. First, you'll need BYOND installed. You can get it from Once you've done that, extract the game files to wherever you want to keep them. This is a sourcecode-only release, so the next step is to compile the server files. Open tgstation.dme by double-clicking it, open the Build menu, and click compile. This'll take a little while, and if everything's done right you'll get a message like this:

saving tgstation.dmb (DEBUG mode)
tgstation.dmb - 0 errors, 0 warnings

If you see any errors or warnings, something has gone wrong - possibly a corrupt download or the files extracted wrong. If problems persist, ask for assistance in irc://

Once that's done, open up the config folder. You'll want to edit config.txt to set the probabilities for different gamemodes in Secret and to set your server location so that all your players don't get disconnected at the end of each round. It's recommended you don't turn on the gamemodes with probability 0, except Extended, as they have various issues and aren't currently being tested, so they may have unknown and bizarre bugs. Extended is essentially no mode, and isn't in the Secret rotation by default as it's just not very fun.

You'll also want to edit config/admins.txt to remove the default admins and add your own. "Game Master" is the highest level of access, and probably the one you'll want to use for now. You can set up your own ranks and find out more in config/admin_ranks.txt

The format is

byondkey = Rank

where the admin rank must be properly capitalised.

Finally, to start the server, run Dream Daemon and enter the path to your compiled tgstation.dmb file. Make sure to set the port to the one you specified in the config.txt, and set the Security box to 'Safe'. Then press GO and the server should start up and be ready to join. It is also recommended that you set up the SQL backend (see below).


To update an existing installation, first back up your /config and /data folders as these store your server configuration, player preferences and banlist.

Then, extract the new files (preferably into a clean directory, but updating in place should work fine), copy your /config and /data folders back into the new install, overwriting when prompted except if we've specified otherwise, and recompile the game. Once you start the server up again, you should be running the new version.


/tg/station currently comes equipped with seven maps.

All maps have their own code file that is in the base of the _maps directory. Instead of loading the map directly we instead use a code file to include the map and then include any other code changes that are needed for it. Follow this guideline when adding your own map, to your fork, for easy compatibility.

If you want to load a different map, just open the corresponding map's code file in Dream Maker, make sure all of the other map code files are unticked in the file tree, in the left side of the screen, and then make sure the map code file you want is ticked.

If you are hosting a server, and want randomly picked maps to be played each round, you can enable map rotation in config.txt and then set the maps to be picked in the maps.txt file.

Anytime you want to make changes to a map it's imperative you use the Map Merging tools


/tg/station supports loading away missions however they are disabled by default.

Map files for away missions are located in the _maps/RandomZLevels directory. Each away mission includes it's own code definitions located in /code/modules/awaymissions/mission_code. These files must be included and compiled with the server beforehand otherwise the server will crash upon trying to load away missions that lack their code.

To enable an away mission open config/awaymissionconfig.txt and uncomment one of the .dmm lines by removing the #. If more than one away mission is uncommented then the away mission loader will randomly select one the enabled ones to load.


The SQL backend requires a MySQL server. SQL is required for the library, stats tracking, admin notes, and job-only bans, among other features, mostly related to server administration. Your server details go in /config/dbconfig.txt, and the SQL schema is in /SQL/tgstation_schema.sql and /SQL/tgstation_schema_prefix.sql depending on if you want table prefixes. More detailed setup instructions are located here:


Included in the repository is a python3 compatible IRC bot capable of relaying adminhelps to a specified IRC channel/server, see the /bot folder for more
