adminlist.json file

Post by badgamernl »

This is a Headless server suggestion!

What?

The ability to have a file with all the admins on it.

You may say, there already is one(server-settings.json)! But it doesn't auto add the player names to it.

Why?

Now i have to put all my admins manually in the server-settings.json.

If you have anything that should be edited or you want to discuss why not to do it comment below!

Well I don't know much about multiplayer. And I suddenly see, that Factorio becomes more and more Features I never heard. :)

What I don't get with this is why should it write every player into that file? (Because you wrote it should auto add every player). And how will you add the admins then if they are already in that file?

Well I have an idea how to interpret this post, but I'm not 100% sure. :)



I can say also, that adding admins like now (by writing it by hand into that file) is an unbreakable security feature. :)

Security? Well i need to make a player admin for him to be able to ban griefers. This is a security issue because the admin will be able to run commands.

What i mean by auto adding admins is adding them to the marked line in the server-settings.json.

It would be great if there could be a permissions system like in Minecraft.

Specify the roles and what they can do. We (the DEV on my server and i) have made some control.lua map scripts but there is a limit to what we can do.

+ by me.

would help to exclude the adminlist to a seperate json too for servre admins, then i can easily symlink the file for all games running on it.

Asked about this recent... Makes no sense at all for headless / dedicated servers.

It's insane that you can take an old save load it up and be stuck having another admin rather then replacing / appending it lol.

This has to be fixed without workarounds / silly junk.
