Is there a way to change the limit of players to a lower number than the rented server's slot limit?
My scenario is the following:
I want to keep my PVE server open to anyone, but I have a few players in the white-list (they are helping me to pay for the server, so I want them to always be able to join).
The problem is the way white-listing works in Ark. Even when the server is full (16/16) white-listed players are able to join, but no one is kicked out, thus exceeding the contractual server capacity.
I imagine two solutions for that:
1. Auto-kick a random (non-whitelisted) player whenever a white-list player joins. (but never heard of such functionality)
2. Lower the max players setting of the server by the number of white-listed users (to guarantee random players + white-list players will never exceed contract slots). (but I can't find max players setting in config panel)
Any thoughts on this?
