MOTDgd – Advertisement for your Unturned server
Monetization platform for Unturned servers.

Because of last Unturned update (3.17.10.0) you cannot open Steam overlay on Unturned with BattleEye enabled, therefore our plugin won’t work for users running Unturned with BattleEye enabled because it uses Steam overlay to show ads. More information:

The improved BattlEye security this update has made it harder for cheaters to break into the game, but it’s also had the unexpected side effect of blocking the Steam overlay due to the order in which Unity starts up the game. Unfortunately this means it can’t be fixed from within Unturned itself in a patch, but we’ve come up with a few ideas and hope to have it working properly again for the next update.

If you run game servers on Unturned, you’re in luck – you can now monetise your servers effectively. We offer a fantastic alternative to donations.

 

MOTDgd Ltd is a UK company, and we are proud to be a leading game ad network in the marketspace. We have over 10,000 server owners signed up worldwide, with a huge presence in the Steam marketplace.

 

Our video/banner adverts will be shown via a link, your users click on in link request window. It will open Steam browser, they will watch an ad for a short time (approx 30 sec) with the purpose of getting an item, ability or command defined by you, e.g. an item, a car, heal etc.

 

This is made possible by allowing you to run any number of custom/Unturned commands before and/or after an advertisement is shown. You can customise this how you wish with simple & RTD style reward modes included.

 

Our plugin is server friendly: We’re lightweight and not bloated, you can define a period of time that your users won’t benefit from watching an ad (cooldown), specify how many ads players get before going on a cooldown. You can now also choose custom ad backgrounds, text and a logo for your ad page with your community branding!

 

It is easy to install with our config file web generator.

 

Our plugin is unintrusive it will only impact a player’s gameplay in the way that you tell it to.

 

This is a highly customisable plugin, and as such it is suitable for any type of server.

 

Important reminder!

We use clients private information (Public IP address) to generate hash code, that checks if the user that requested the ad is actually watching it. Before using this plugin, let clients know about this policy. Complete privacy policy can be found here: http://motdgd.com/privacy. By using this plugin, you signify your acceptance of this policy.
