    Servers are keeping disconnecting me due to "inactivity" on joining. How can I fix it? I have good internet

    If anyone has the same issue or someone knows how to fix it please comment here.

    I am having a similar issue, every time I join a server I am immediately disconnected due to inactivity.

    It might be the server having bad connection, or your character has alot stuff going on.
    With that I mean alot items in the inventory (custom edited items maybe?), alot or large quests and other things that are stored on your character.
    Those things are sent to the server when joining and if a character file gets large it can make you disconnect.

    I had only vanilla item on without customization.
    also I think it was server side because it seems to be fixed.

    { "op" : "replace", "path" : "/connectionTimeout", "value" : 360000}

    { "name" : "Thisisjustarandomname"}

    If he should decide to do so, the upper one should be called universe_server.config.patch and the second one whateveryouwant.modinfo

    Just put both in a folder and this folder in your "/giraffe_storage/mods" folder.

    (360'000 = 60 minutes)

    I find this but i didnt know how write this code in file

    Because i had the same problem:


    Only tested on Windows

    1. Create a folder named TimeoutPatch in starbound/mods
    2. In this folder, create a file named universe_server.config.patch
    2.1. Open this file with a text editor like notepad++
    2.2. Write
    { "op" : "replace", "path" : "/connectionTimeout", "value" : 360000}
    2.3. Save and Exit
    3. In the same folder, create a file named TimeoutPatch.modinfo
    3.1. Same as 2.1.
    3.2. Write { "name" : "TimeoutPatch"}
    3.3 Save and Exit
    4. If you leave it just there it could work but I haven't tested that
    5. Then go to starbound\win32 and create a file named pack.bat
    6. Open this file with a text editor
    7. Write
    asset_packer.exe ..\modsTimeoutPatch ..\mods\TimeoutPatch.pak
    8. Start the batch to pack the assets
    9. If you have a dedicated server, transfer the TimeoutPatch.pak to your servers mods directory and restart it

    Last tested on Starbound v1.3.2

    It works for me, it may not work for you

    I have uploaded the mod to Steam

    Can I use whatever name I want, instead of "TimeoutPatch"?
    And will it work on 1.4.x?
