The server object is a global object that can be accessed from any script, by using the SERV reference. The following tables detail the various properties of the server in SphereServer:

References

References return pointers to other objects (e.g. the CHAR.n reference allows you to access the characters that are attached to the account). These can either be accessed by using <REFNAME> to return the UID (1 for object types that don't have UIDs) of the object or 0 if it doesn't exist, or by using <REFNAME.KEY> where KEY is a valid property/function/reference for the REFNAME object. Click on the name for more detailed information such as usage and examples.
