With the upgrade to 0.15, I changed the default save file location and how it is set in /etc/conf.d/factorio (to match with the factorio-headless-experimental package)

Before:
SAVE_FILE=/var/lib/factorio/.factorio/saves/factorio-service-save.zip

After:
SAVE_NAME=factorio-service-save

This will put the save file in /var/lib/factorio/factorio-service-save.zip

The old factorio-service-save.zip file will be automatically copied to the new location upon upgrading (unless it already exists for some reason...).

If you haven't changed /etc/conf.d/factorio, you shouldn't need to do anything.

If you have modified /etc/conf.d/factorio, you'll have to set the SAVE_NAME correctly (the install script should give you a sensible value based on your previous SAVE_FILE value).

In all cases, the old 0.14 default save will stay in .factorio/saves/factorio-service-save.zip

Please also note that the factorio service will automatically be stopped when doing the upgrade to make sure it's copying an up-to-date save file.

Here it goes!

@mickael9: Here you go, I disowned the package. Thanks!

mickael9 commented on 2016-11-10 00:07

@duthils: sure, I'll take it if you don't want it, or you can just set me as comaintainer

@mickael9: would you like to maintain this package? I don't have much time to give to it, and I don't run a server myself. Seems like you know exactly what to change too.

mickael9 commented on 2016-11-05 20:48

@duthils: for 0.14 :
--latency-ms has been removed
--autosave-interval and --autosave-slots have been removed and replaced with settings from server-settings.json

Here is the diff from my package, feel free to reuse the interesting parts : https://gist.github.com/mickael9/8dd500eb6e8feadc68cb045e83817f8d

Edit: Oh, and --allow-commands is also removed and configured in server-settings.json

@mickael9, thanks a lot for the list of fixes, I applied them. I don't have time right now to dig around what are the changes, so it was very helpful. Please let me know if you see any more issues.

mickael9 commented on 2016-08-27 16:27

This package is broken for 0.13 because of the following changes:
--peer-to-peer has been removed
--disallow-commands has been removed (use --allow-commands admins-only instead)
--create and --start-server now take a save file path rather than a save name
