    Hello everybody,

    I stuck at the config.
    My webinterface create a starbound_server.config in /storage/.
    But I only send maxplayers for testing see below:

    "maxPlayers": "4"

    I generate this with symfony json input is:
    [storage/starbound_server.config] json

    Why this doesn't work?
    Do I have to create the whole config? Hope not...
    There are no startup parameters for setting players or ip/port.

    Hope you got a good answer :)

    Yipes. You called?

    What are you trying to do? Change the maximum amount of people in a game or party?

    Hi ;)

    I want to create a server via an webinterface.
    Every game supports a few config items and the server create the other ones.
    For example the webinterface create the following starbound_server.config:
    "maxPlayers": "4"

    Nothing more.
    The server sets this to an .old and creates a new one.
    But why?
    It should accept the config and add the missing ones.

    I can't set the whole config, then the user can't change its config.
    So I have to set only neccessary things for me, like ip, port, maxplayers.

    Hope you can help me.

    I don't really know how to set these up on a web interface. Only a local server.

    Did you like rent a server on line or something?

    I tested around and found out that starbound is overwriting the config every time.
    I create the starbound_server.config with a yaml extension looking like this:


    But if I start now the server, starbound overwrites this config to default.
    Why it doesn't add just the missing values?
    Every game is able to do this, but no no starbound not... :nurumad:

    Somebody here who is able to help me... Maybe a dev itself...
    The easiest way would be a startup parameter like:
    "./starbound_server -logfile starbound_server.log -gameServerBind 37.xxx.79.xxx" etc....

    Regards :/

    In the starbound_server.log you will find the reason of the config reset. the config is most likely incomplete in this case, causing a reset to its default state.

    Yes I think too...
    But any other game is able to handle this and just add the missing entries.

    Thats really bad.

    Is a dev also registered on this board who could add this to feature requests?
