7D2D RAT server manager can be used for both local and remote server administration. Meaning, you can use it whether you host your 7D2D Server from your home, or have it hosted with a hosting service. The only difference is there are a few features that can't work if you're remotely hosted (not many).
* Neither of these mods will change the gameplay or put your server into the modded category.
Local Server Configuration
Manage all of the 7D2D server settings
Import your existing settings from your serverconfig.xml file to save time!

Manage your server from Discord
Display Discord embeds

RAT contains a powerful event editor to allow you to create custom commands
Would you like to reward your players for killing a zombie? Response to player chat? There are many possibilities of what you can do with the RAT Event Editor. You can create as many events as you want, they'll trigger on such things as a player joining the server, chatting, player death, being banned, etc.
There are many default events already setup in the Event Editor, but disabled so that you can pick, choose and use the defaults as examples!
You can add/remove in game currency to/from your players. Automatically reward them for killing zombies, logging into the server for the first time today and more! You can even let your players exchange the currency for ingame items such as Duke tokens.
Auto start your server on app launch
Auto restart your server if it dies
Auto restart server if its RAM usage exceeds your set limit (but only when there are no players on the server)
Backup & Restore
Backup your game at set intervals. Your players can remain online. Also automatically ZIPs your backups (if you select it).
Restore functions will handle all of the dirty work! Select a previous backup, click Restore. You're done. It'll even restart the server for you if you want.
Create as many server messages as you want and control how often they appear. You can also choose to display them randomly or in sequential order.
