Your dedicated server launcher is really great! The only issue I have is that the mods don’t seem to load. I can’t seem to figure it out. I have them in the appdata directory under mods, I can load them fine in a normal multiplayer game but I can’t get them to load through the launcher. It’s actually only one mod, trying to make it as simple as possible :)

Made an account to post here. The tool is nonfunctional now, it never makes it past "starting server" and trying more than once results in an unhandled exception and crash. I just spent 4 hours trying to setup the server with SteamCMD, which I'm experienced with, but was completely unable to. I tried this tool and it also did not work, I don't understand what I'm doing wrong and I give up, I just set up servers for 3 other games with no problems but Factorio wants me to go fuck myself.
