The zone.dat file contains several entries which define a player's favorite server list. The information can either be downloaded from a directory server or manually added to the file.
For each zone a entry like the following exist in the zone.dat file.
<Zone name>,<Zone ip>,<Zone port>,<unknown dns>,<Warn non-SSC zone> #<description>
SSCU Trench Wars,220.127.116.11,5400,server.trenchwars.org,0 #SSCU Trench Wars - Sysops: DoCk> and PriitK - http://www.trenchwars.org ss://server.trenchwars.org
- The <Unknown dns> field often seems to contain a DNS name for some zones (ex.: "server.trenchwars.org" for Trench Wars). It may remain blank.
- The <Warn non-SSC zone> field is a boolean value which indicates whether or not Continuum will not warn you are entering a non-SSC zone. When this field is set to 1 Continuum will not warn the player they are entering a non-SSC zone.
- The <Warn non-SSC zone> field is ignored by Continuum if the zone is an SSC zone.
Tips and Tricks
In Continuum, in order to add a link into the "Web Links & News" menu, you may prefix URLs with site name in brackets in the zone description field.
