[Rseding91] [0.17.25] Join server after sync option doesn't work if mod startup settings need syncing

Post by Muppet9010 »

When you join an MP server and are missing mods and those mods have non default startup settings the "join server after sync" option doesn't follow through to after the mod startup settings sync action. So at the end of the process you haven't joined the server, you're left on the main menu. I put this as a bug as it seems like its an incomplete feature.
  1. empty client mod folder
  2. server with mod and non-default mod startup setting
  3. join server with client
  4. client offered to sync mods and tick "join server after sync"
  5. client downloads mods and game restarts
  6. client tries to connect back to server
  7. client gets the option to sync startup mod settings - No "join server after sync" option
  8. client syncs mod startup settings and game restarts
  9. client sits on main menu, but was previously ticked to "join server after sync"
From a client perspective there isn't really a differentiation between syncing mod files and mod startup settings. They just want to get on the server and play.

It has been on my to-do since before 0.17 was released to change this so it would auto-join on restarting. It will now do that for the next version of 0.17.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.
