emp_sv_max_walls: Number of walls a team can place. (does not include engineer-placed walls) (Default = 24)
emp_sv_building_box: Makes buildings use the axis aligned bounding box for physics.
emp_sv_building_physics: Makes buildings use the VPhysics mesh for physics.
emp_sv_building_none: Disables physics for buildings.

Resources

emp_sv_refinery_interval: Number of seconds between refinery resource generation. (Default = 1)
emp_sv_refinery_multiplier: Refinery output is multiplied by this (both teams). (Default = 1)
emp_sv_player_refinery_multiplier: Number of players that cause an increase in resources produced via refineries. (Default = 12)

For example: 12 means at 12 to 23 players, 1 is added to refinery output, 24 to 35, 2 is added to refinery output.

emp_sv_player_resource_interval: Number of players that cause an increase in resources produced via refineries. (Default = 12)

For example: 12 means at 12 to 23 players, 1 is added to refinery output, 24 to 35, 2 is added to refinery output.

emp_sv_resource_multiplier_nf: Number of resources at map start is multiplied by this (Northern Faction). (Default = 5)
emp_sv_resource_multiplier_be: Number of resources at map start is multiplied by this (Brenodi Empire). (Default = 5)
emp_sv_refinery_diminishing_returns_basevalue: Minimum value for diminishing returns. See emp_sv_refinery_diminishing_returns_valueperrefinery. (Default = 0.25)
emp_sv_refinery_diminishing_returns_valueperrefinery: Amount to decrease the output of a refinery by. Computed as 1 - ( valueperrefinery * N ) where N is the Nth - 1 refinery owned by the team. If this is smaller then the basevalue, basevalue is used for the refinery. (Default = 0.0)
emp_sv_commander_resource_interval: Interval between commander data updates. When the interval has passed, the location of all players and buildings is sent to the commander. (Default = 0.3)
emp_give_resources: Number of resources that is added to the resource total for the specified team.

For example: emp_give_resources be 1000 will add 1000 res to Brenodi's resources while emp_give_resources nf 1000 will do the same for Northern Faction.

Research

emp_sv_research_item: Researches the specified research for both teams. Takes the name of the research as a argument.

Example: emp_sv_research_item Nuclear Warhead will research Nukes for both teams.

emp_sv_unresearch_item: Removes the specified research for both Teams. Takes the name of the research as a argument. Equipped Weapons in Tanks will get unavailable after they are unresearched.

Example: emp_sv_unresearch_item Nuclear Warhead will unresearch Nukes for both teams.
