Performance related

Option Values Description
MaxSpawnedZombies 64 This setting covers the entire map. There can only be this many zombies on the entire map at one time. Changing this setting has a huge impact on performance.
MaxSpawnedAnimals 50 If your server has a large number of players you can increase this limit to add more wildlife. Animals don't consume as much CPU as zombies. NOTE: That this doesn't cause more animals to spawn arbitrarily: The biome spawning system only spawns a certain number of animals in a given area, but if you have lots of players that are all spread out then you may be hitting the limit and can increase it.
ServerMaxAllowedViewDistance 12 Max viewdistance a client may request (6 - 12). High impact on memory usage and performance.

Zombie settings

Option Values Description
EnemySpawnMode true Enable/Disable enemy spawning
EnemyDifficulty 0 0 = Normal, 1 = Feral

ZombieFeralMove 3 0-4 (walk, jog, run, sprint, nightmare)
ZombieBMMove 3 0-4 (walk, jog, run, sprint, nightmare)
BloodMoonFrequency 7 What frequency (in days) should a blood moon take place. Set to "0" for no blood moons
BloodMoonRange 0 How many days can the actual blood moon day randomly deviate from the above setting. Setting this to 0 makes blood moons happen exactly each Nth day as specified in BloodMoonFrequency
BloodMoonWarning 8 The Hour number that the red day number begins on a blood moon day. Setting this to -1 makes the red never show.
BloodMoonEnemyCount 8 This is the number of zombies that can be alive (spawned at the same time) at any time PER PLAYER during a blood moon horde, however, MaxSpawnedZombies overrides this number in multiplayer games. Also note that your game stage sets the max number of zombies PER PARTY. Low game stage values can result in lower number of zombies than the BloodMoonEnemyCount setting. Changing this setting has a huge impact on performance. -->
