World availability
Need to restrict access to users with advanced permissions, or want to automatically throw open the doors on a particular date? Breakroom makes it easy to secure your virtual kingdom.

Overview

Breakroom's world status function allows you to restrict access to certain users with the flip of a switch. You can also schedule a day and time when your world will automatically become accessible to all of your users, and post a "world offline" message to keep everyone in the loop.
When your world status is set to Off, only Owners, Administrators, Moderators, and Developers will be able to log in. Members and Guests will no longer have access to your world.
