Unrelated to game server or clusterโ€‹

Activate the task for specific game servers or all game servers in a cluster.

Ignore player statusโ€‹

This can be useful in cases where, for example, the player is not online but orders whitelist access from the shop.


Do not use this in combination with in-game deliveries! Most games do not support this and the delivery will get lost.

This can be useful in cases where, for example, the game server is offline and should automatically start at a specific time.
