How to set up eco server / Quick Guide (Work in progress Guide!)



  • ok got all the thinks i need .. i am going to expand this guide on troubleshooting network issues. or do you guys like this to be a separate post?



  • How or where to add users for admin in users.eco?

    "Admins": {
    "$id": "4",
    "System.String": {
    "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.String, mscorlib]], mscorlib",
    "$values": []
    }



  • "Admins": {
    "$id": "4",
    "System.String": {
    "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.String, mscorlib]], mscorlib",
    "$values": ["Apop85"]
    }

    It goes in the brackets following $values if you don't use quotes it won't start. OR didn't for me. Even Though I am admin though I can't seem to get it to work. I heard their was some issues if you are using a host but should work. I know it does for some. This is for 4.2 not sure about 5. Good luck!



  • thx. is there some way to give less than 10k skillpoints with /skillpoints command? i saw /skillpoint [amount] somewhere but the game dont seems to know this command.



  • Not that I know of. I was not successful in making myself in game admin. I didn't try to hard though cause I'm not trying to use any commands anyway. You could always give yourself some good food possibly to get points rolling in fast without giving yourself 10k points maybe. If you figure it out let me know! Or maybe someone else has better input on the matter



  • @Apop85 from what I saw on another thread it is one hardcoded value it seems, maybe be wrong but haven't saw anyone getting a custom value as it doesn't seem to accept parameters.



  • @pan7s yeah but at the time you have to do anything again the 3rd time because of servers without admin support (no one cares whats happening at their server, almost all are dead planets) you'll start to think different ;D. i just boosted me up to the level and professions i had before.

    BTW

    Is there a way to change the blockitem of the /level command? Found this guide about admin commands but same like /skillpoint [amount] the game dont know the command /level 2,2,stoneitem like they say in this guide. But if i write /level 2,2 stoneitem the command works but dont change the default block settings. It's still dirt.



  • Haha I don't know if I will think different. The server I have going we were able to get the elk on the rise. We have planted more trees then cut down. We have added plants back to the wild more then we took :) but I do understand why someone would want to.



  • @pan7s @Apop85 :: Having no luck with the users.eco file putting in the name manually. I'm currently with PingPerfect. Does your server list you as an admin in the player list?



  • @Planeswalker have disabled admin atm but if you write it like below it should work.

    "Admins": {
    "$id": "4",
    "System.String": {
    "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.String, mscorlib]], mscorlib",
    "$values": [
    "Planeswalker"
    ]
    }



  • @Apop85 Thanks for the help. I figured it was like that and that I had done something wrong in the first place.



  • can someone please tell me how to change the server name from "eco server"?

    thanks



  • Its under the network tab / config



  • {
    "$id": "1",
    "PublicServer": true,
    "IPAddress": "Any",
    "GameServerPort": 3000,
    "WebServerPort": 3001
    }

    do i need to add a line?



  • You dont use the gui? I am not sure. If you give me some time i can check. But first i need to get done at work and get Home ;)



  • here we go! this is how my config looks =)

    {
    "$id": "1",
    "PublicServer": true,
    "Description": "ECO Offical EU Alpha 5 Test Server",
    "IPAddress": "Any",
    "GameServerPort": 3000,
    "WebServerPort": 3001,
    "Rate": 10,
    "ServerBrowserService": "https://ecoauth.strangeloopgames.com/game"
    }

    that should definitely help !



  • I forwarded ports properly and my server still shows offline. I host from my home computer, do I use it's IP when I use the add server button?



  • I am working on the network troubleshooting guide that should help out on figuring thinks out .. done with my first draft. when i have gone over it once or twice i will post it and then keep on expanding on it as needed =) so should be soon up and help at least



  • Any news on the guide? I'm really excited to get my server going as soon as possible. Thanks!
