Hello there, so i am new to nitrado i started using it 3 days ago and have set up a server for me and some friends and everything is great except for a few issues. I mainly use the nitrado app on my phone but for bigger edits i use my laptop and edit expert settings that way so I noticed that sometimes when i turn server off to make changes in expert mode (i have expert mode on always i never turn it off) in the gameusersettings.ini there are some settings that was not there like playercharacterfooddrain and water drain so i added the codes myself and it did work however few hours later when wanting to make some other changes i noticed for some reason playercharacterfooddrain was gone however the water drain was still in the code. I simply readded the fooddrain one and checked other settings i recently changed to make sure everything else was all good and it was i even saved the ini files to my pc in case it happens again.
later on in the day i am playing on my server and i noticed that i don't see some creatures at all on the map ( The Center) i don't see otters , quetzels , megalosaurus on the map (could be other things missing too these are just what i noticed so far) . I find this odd because i know that the megalosaurus always spawns in a certain cave and i kept checking back but none appeared. Then i noticed i have not seen any quetzels either and later on when my friend wanted to get an otter we did not see any either when looking at their spawn points. I spawned in a fast flyer to explore the map and see if i can see any quetzels however i have seen none so i figured okay il turn server off go into general settings where there is an option you can checkmark the box that wipes all wild dinos on startup i figured maybe there is just too much dino population of other ones. After waiting 10-15 minutes i was ready to turn server back on but i wanted to check on gameusersettings.ini because i was curious if my settings were all good or changed again and the characterfooddrain and waterdrain was once again gone from the settings but other things i added / changed was still correct in the file.
so the two issues i have currently are the changes for some reason are not reverting and yes i do click save and wait 10-20 minutes before putting server back up everytime and it is turned off for a good 5 minutes before i make any changes. The other issue is that some dinos are just not spawning.
i did not make changes where you can adjust how much of a certain dino is spawned in or adjusted anything in there either.
if anyone knows the issue or has any ideas on what i can try it would be greatly appreciated thanks!
