A Guide To Moat's Settings
This guide is more based towards newer players of the server, but you might also learn something about a setting you never knew. Most of these will explain the most common thing. But what else can you explain it as?
Most newer players keep asking how to turn off the music at the end of the round. Due to some of the songs being unfavorably loud or bad. It seems that they've never looked into the settings. because it's the first thing there, all you have to do it turn it on or off. or adjust the volume,
The option to change your FOV is there, but it's kind of limited. you can alternatively open up your console and type "moat_clfov" Using decimals in place of normal so 1.3 = 130 FOV.
Disabling the MOTD on joining removes the page that blocks your view when you enter in. It's useful if you have read it too many times.
Inverting the map turns it from left to right. this can honestly make some maps look better. and is probably better for the left handed.
Disabling multicore rendering lets your other CPU be free to process the game rather than sharing the workload risking an overload and crashing your game.

Inventory effects visible toggles if you're able to see the effects players wear, this can really help you hit shots if off because some effects are very good at hiding your head.
Inventory effects halos visible toggles the glow on some effects, toggling this off can improve your shots as it makes effects less better at hiding heads.
