Static "latest" headless download link

Post by Bisa »

Do you guys have any plans on implementing a static link to the current "latest" build for the headless package?

currently /get-download/0.12.29/headless/linux64 is dynamic
wheras /get-download/latest/headless/linux64
and /get-download/latest/experimental/headless/linux64
would allow for a more convenient way to script the download and install of headless servers :)

Recently I had a problem with the updater script made by user Narc (and init script by Bisa) in which there was only one update available (from 0.12.28 to 0.12.29), so my 0.12.26 could not be updated that way. I had to manually update the software.

Having that type of url would be awesome :D

This is a good idea. Very useful if you're running a server!

More or less simple change in build-script, big gain of usability.
+1, ASAP.

Why do you think it is not in the right board?

hmm, I was debating with myself if this would fit more properly in a "web site suggestions" rather than for the game itself since its not really game design related :p

Just so we're clear, I'm not saying I added it, I just found it there :D Not sure who and when added it and too lazy to look.

From what I can tell,

Code: Select all

https://www.factorio.com/get-download/latest/headless/linux64
downloads the experimental release if available. I haven't been able to find a way to download the latest stable release. Does one exist?

Why would you wait for the stable :)?
