Hi, can you please update the download URL to use HTTPS directly? The current link in the source array redirects to HTTPS anyways. Thanks!

Maybe provide a config file for ufw too.

/etc/ufw/applications.d/ufw-factorio :

I suggest adding --server-adminlist server-adminlist.json to the FACTORIO_EXTRA_ARGS of factorio-headless.conf

Error CommandLineMultiplayer.cpp:51: use-server-whitelist must be set when server-whitelist is set.

This works

-FACTORIO_EXTRA_ARGS="--server-banlist server-banlist.json --server-whitelist server-whitelist.json --console-log console.log"
+FACTORIO_EXTRA_ARGS="--server-banlist server-banlist.json --use-server-whitelist --server-whitelist server-whitelist.json --console-log console.log"

@ghvisseryyou should not have to do that, see

Could you at least please add /usr/lib/systemd/system/factorio.service to the backup directive in the PKGBUILD? Then I don't have to change it every single update.

I've noticed that when starting a new server using --start-server-load-latest (as mentioned in my previous comments) does not work. That can be changed by changing SAVE_NAME=factorio-service-save to SAVE_NAME=.factorio/saves/factorio-service-save in factorio-headless.conf.

I've tested this configuration and it works better than how the package is currently configured, as mentioned in the previous comments. Could the maintainer at least respond as to why he will not implement these changes? It's been over a year and still no response.

Also, the whitelist directive in FACTORIO_EXTRA_ARGS causes the server to fail initialisation if no whitelist is set.

It's almost a year and that hasn't been done. I agree with the ExecStart change.

Any comment on the change of the ExecStart directive? It has been five months since I posted it.
