A "disconnect-less" server restart.


  • Project Moderator

    Feature:
    Option to restart the server without the need for players to manually reconnect.
    Description:
    There should be an option to restart the server during a mapchange without interrupting players on the server.
    The players should be notified by an extra screen and they should have the option to disconnect by pressing ESC.*
    Motivation:
    This feature should be added to Pluto, so admins can perform (daily) restarts without interrupting and therefore loosing players.

    Of course this hasn't a high priority and is just another nice to have feature.

    * @marty came up with the idea to add an extra screen and to add the possibility to disconnect.

    he means reading the server.cfg again, since it doesnt... it reads map entries and dsr but not server config :) not a bad idea actually... that can lead to a changing ports host... thats actually awesome :O
    Edit: not to mention this could make different plugins loaded for each gametype and such... would actually renew the entire game if done properly ^^
