What exactly is FoxControl?
FoxControl is a servertool which allows you to manage your ShootMania Server easily ingame.
It is independent from any ShootMania gamemode and can be adjusted in its config files for fitting to an own mode.
Natively supported gamemodes are Royal, Melee, Battle, TimeAttack, Siege and Fortress.
Beside this variety FoxControl has a low server utilization which makes FoxControl run fast even on slower machines.
The simple object-oriented pluginsystem lets you create your own Plugins easily.
There are no limits for your ideas.

But even if you are new to servertools, FoxControl is the right choice for you because it is easy to install.
Just adapt some values in the config file and create a new empty database. Every other thing will be done automatically.
