No problem. I'm also a developer and ran some largeish open source projects for many years. I know the importance of good questions :)

IF YOU USED THE DEFAULT CONFIG: Adjust the --allow-commands admins-only option, this was fixed in my last commit to master and will be included in releases past but not inlcuding 2.3.0

Is your script eligible to run multiple factorio servers parallel on the same server? On different ports of course. Which changes would be needed to achieve this?

the simplest solution would be to have multiple copies of my script+its config, else you want to have a look at what the script does and divide it into instances (totally doable but not implemented in the script - feel free to pull request if you develop that)

Is there a save command?

Just save the map and keep playing.
currently using 'save-game name' but this requires a restart

I'm trying to setup my server but I try to run it and it says it cant find factorio.service but I put it in /factorio-init. How do I fix this? Thanks.

Hi, by your question it's not apparent if you are running sysv or systemd - have a look at https://github.com/Bisa/factorio-init#sysvinit and https://github.com/Bisa/factorio-init#systemd respectively
If you still have issues, try running the script directly & also check out the debugging options outlined on the github readme page.

presenting v2.3.1 - now with auto completion for bash

also @tacgnol try sourcing the auto complete script and type "factorio [tab][tab]" it will help you finish the arguments for the factorio script

It doesn't seems to work.

Heres what I done :

cd /opt/factorio-init
git pull
ln -s /opt/factorio-init/bash_autocomplete /etc/bash_completion.d/factorio

then reboot the server.

when i try to auto complete, it doesn't recognise 'factorio' as a valid command.



$ fa (tab)
factor faked-sysv fakeroot fakeroot-tcp false
faillog faked-tcp fakeroot-sysv fallocate fatlabel

ah, good catch! you need to ensure your shell knows about the factorio command (I suggest adding it to your /usr/local/bin folder as such:

Code: Select all

ln -s /opt/factorio-init/factorio /usr/local/bin/factorio
(btw restarting the server wont be needed when adding stuff to the auto complete folder or bashrc, simply log out and in again ;))

i'm having trouble getting this to run on my google cloud server

trying to run stable 0.13.20, i've copied everything over and everything is extracted to /opt. i didn't modify the service example at all, only the server settings and config file

when i try to verify the server has started properly, it returns the following:

Code: Select all

$sudo systemctl status -l factorio

Looks like you are unable to start factorio? what happens if you run the invocation command manually?
i.e whatever "./factorio invocation" outputs

Aye, there it is again:

I'm afraid I have no idea what that error means (It's an error from factorio itself, not my init script), you need to figure that one out before you can use my script I'm afraid.
Have you tried the 0.14.x releases? (perhaps it's fixed in a later version already)

well thanks for looking and replying anyway :(

yes i tried 14.3 first and thought it might be an error with experimental builds

it's probably something i misconfigured on the google instance, i just set it up to try and run a server for factorio, so i'm still learning

it's ubuntu 16.04 LTS
i figured it out and it's so dumb :D

when i edited the server settings where it says "name", "description", "tags", i edited those instead of the text to the right of them

i'm new.
