Superuser Christian Posted August 31, 2022 Superuser Share Posted August 31, 2022 I've already made various tools interacting with the Pterodactly API that I've submitted on GitHub and on this forum. Once I have time in the future, I will be making another tool that automatically updates game servers (AKA restarting the server since SteamCMD is launched by default). I know exactly how to do it. Firstly, there is a file named appmanifest_<appid>.acf in /home/container/steamapps/ that contains the build number for the branches/depots the server is using. The file is formatted using JSON. There is a public API called SteamCMD.net with unlimited API requests that I plan to communicate with to see if the build is outdated (otherwise, you'd have to use the SteamCMD CLI). Additionally, I am going to be implementing the following features. A configurable warning system (warn users before the server restarts for an update). Only restarting/updating the server when the player count is below a threshold (count directly and/or server fill percentage). Hooks so you can notify people on Discord when the server is updated for example or to perform other actions when a server is updated. If you have any ideas for more features, feel free to reply :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
