Concerning Multiplayer Saves

Post by shyguy » Fri Nov 01, 2019 6:47 pm

If this is the wrong sub-forum please move my thread.

When I upload a save to a free or non-free server-service like for instance factorio.zone (mentioned here in the forums but could be any other service) is there any way the service could get hold of the password of my factorio account? Or when i connect to a factorio server?

regards shy

Your password is not stored anywhere, and the token is stored in player-data.json, not in the save game.

I don't know how MP servers verify that you're really the player you claim you are, but they definitely don't use your password for that.
