Some Drops Are Edited, Others Are Not
In nearly all cases, this question comes from Nitrado server admins. The problem is Nitrado's control panel. The "Engine Settings" section of the control panel can handle small amounts of config lines, but loot overrides take up literal kilobytes of text, and they just don't fit.
So if your game is only customizing some drops, it is because Nitrado's control panel is cutting your config short.
Here's what to do.
- Stop your server and wait at least 3 minutes. Seriously, Nitrado's own wiki says this, it's true.
Expert Mode. You will need to keep
Expert Modeturned on, so get used to making your own changes to
GameUserSettings.ini. Turning on
Expert Modewill preserve your existing settings.
- Go to the
Game.inifrom the menu and click
- Copy everything inside the big text box.
- Go to
Deployin Beacon. Choose
Use copy + paste to edit the Game.ini in my hosts' control panel. Beacon will immediately update the
Game.inicontent you copied before. Beacon will show you the new content, but you do not need to copy the new content, Beacon did it for you!
- Go back to Nitrado and paste over everything in the big text box.
- Restart your server.
You can do this as often as necessary, Beacon will preserve all settings not related to loot selection.
