How to remove your server from the server list?
« on: May 10, 2020, 12:27:55 PM »
Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to remove your server from the server list? If not when using the "start a server with this map" option, what's the best way to protect your game? Activating all the slots and setting passwords for them?

Exactly. Or manually start the server without announcing, and manual set port forwarding.

Is there, like, a properties line command for not announcing the server? I'm not sure if that would even work, since I used that checkbox feature to start the current game I have. That method and the property command line are the only ways I've successfully figured out how to start a server.

Otherwise, I'll just do the activating and password setting for all the slots. I'll be satisfied with that. Thanks a bunch for the information.

Merged the doublepost. -Isaac

If you start a server from the commandline (you need to something like this

"simutrans -fps 15 -server -load name_of_game.sve" This will start a server. However, you have to manually set the port forwarding to your PC for port 13353. In principle, if you give an invalid IP for your server, the announce is ignored too. Not tested thoughm, but

"simutrans -easyserver -server_dns 0.42.42.42 -server_altdns invalid.server -fps 15 -load name_of_game.sve" should start but announcement will fail due to invalid IP address.

Look at simuconf.tab, there are some options for announcements
