server: some wishes

Recommended Posts

Please smile.gif

- use a configfile for server options

- ability to send messages to the players from the command line

- a graceful terminate (via SIGHUP or similar - sometimes the server doesn't die completly and you are left with a process blocking the port)

- linebreaks in the Description.txt files

- some output that the server started on STDOUT (like'server listening on port xy' in the .log)

- make it possible to need a password to join a server

- make it impossible to join a server if you don't have the correct mod (this is IMHO a must: a lot of strange things happen if versions don't fit)

- option to auto-download the needed mod files


- configurable loglevel or something like logrotate - if the server runs a few days, the Dropteam.log gets HUGE
