Favourite server list - difficult to find at the moment
« on: August 12, 2017, 01:51:41 PM »
HI,

On multi-player, there is no option at the moment to find favourite server. If I lost connection, I have to manually scroll the list and find the server. Is it possible to ad such option to the game?

As a sollution, I could add server manually by IP (if there is in server description). So instead of dozen servers I have only few. But how to find server IP, if there is no at the description?

You can find the ip in the client log. Do following steps:

  • Connect to the server
  • Open the client log (C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Roaming\Avorion\). Choose the current one.

There should be a line wich looks like this:

Code: [Select]
2017-08-12 15-51-47| Connecting to server at 127.0.0.1:27000
In this case, the ip is 127.0.0.1, ignore the ":" and the numbers behind.

But I agree to your suggestion, there should be a favorite marker and/or a button to automaticly add the selected server.

Many thanks, I could see the IP now, but could be very useful to have own favourite list.

Hi,

Unfortunately it doesn't work with many servers - it mean no IP provided in this .log file.

So my suggestion to developers:
[1] Favourites servers list
[2] Search option in server list [MUST BE]
[3] Possibility to sort by name (now only works for - how many people and  for PING).

^^ so probably this topic should be in different place :)
