Ability to set timed messages for shutdown

Post by the1trujok3r » Wed Feb 15, 2017 9:21 pm

In ARK and many other games in the survival genre time is needed to get safe or to log out. The auto update feature if forced to update sends a 10 second warning which isn't enough time for many to log out. I know the update waits for the server to have 0 players but for popular games sometimes the server needs to be forced to shutdown and update.

So the feature request would be to notify the server via rcon message before the forced update happens so an option to set a time say 15 minutes, then at 5 minutes, then 4,3,2,1 and then a final message before the shutdown. Also the ability to customize the rcon message would be great so that you could change the messages broadcast.

This would be very helpful for both ARK and Conan.

This is something we're currently working on and plan to have it available in the next update.

Masher also when you set the hourly function to restart the server could you make sure it follows the rule set for notification too? Or give the option to include the shutdown timer when using the hourly interval setting.

So say we want to server to restart every 4 hours that the users would get the message that the server is shutting down etc...or restarting and follow the same rule as an update would give so they get a fair warning the servers are going to reboot for maintenance etc...

Another item to add to this would be the ability for it to check if any players are on so if not then the server would just shutdown and not send messages or time out etc...

This would help with updates etc...or shutdowns or restarts when the messages would not be necessary.

Just something to think about while you implement the feature.

I have a beta ready to test. It required a big overhaul of the panel and would like to get a few testers on board before releasing.

-RCON shutdown time is now definable as well as the messages
-Immediate shutdown if server is empty

Let me know how it goes.
