    EAH is under active development and we are always looking into features which can boost your or your players experience in Empyrion.

    However, even if EAH offers some game-play features like the EAH Auto Miner it doesn't mean this is the common or only way to request features.
    For that please refer to the proper threads in the forum.

    So please difference between game core features (for example you want a new item) and EAH features (for example you want a new timetable time entry)

    Two things:

    1. More specific details on why EAH thinks the player is cheating or might be cheating
    2. Notifications when a player enters and leaves the game.

    Many moons ago some of the log files were stored XML. Specifically the intruder log. This was back when we required to buy EAH and so I did.

    I would really like to see this feature return. The ability to export various logs to XML automatically on a schedule or something similar.

    Request1 - Could we please have the player list auto-update accordingly based on your selection?
    Example: If I select the "on" tick, I would like to only see players who are online for example. This works for the current moment only, however, as soon as someone logs on they are not displayed. Also, when someone logs off, they are still displayed just without the 'on' tick.

    Request2 - Once again with regards to the player list display. Could we please be given the option to choose what headings (columns) are displayed or not.

    Request3 - In the playfield list display, if I choose to compress a playfield by pressing the up arrow, could it please stay that way and not auto-expand.

    Thanks,
    Andy.

    Thanks a lot.
    Point 1 might be difficult but maybe I just have to inform myself better.
    Point 2 yeah I know... if devs give their ok we could implement that. Should not be to difficult.
    Point 3: Can you explain that a bit. Did not get it yet. What arrow and what does expand?

    New features are from now on a bit depended on the devs, so excuse me if not all gets done or if it takes a bit.

    Hi Jascha,
    So to expand on point 3 as per your request. In the playfield section, there is a little up arrow next to each playfield that is currently active and it will show the playfield name, and list the users connected to that playfield. If you click the up arrow for any of the playfields it compresses that particular session and no longer shows the names of the players. That is fine, however when the tool refreshes every minute or so, that list automatically expands all the playfields out again so they keep scrolling off the screen.

    The arrow I refer to above - if you click it, it will change to this ;
    upload_2017-9-25_17-0-8.png

    But then the tool updates itself, and reverts back to the top version.


    Hope that explains things a bit easier.

    Andy.

    Thanks :). I thought about the other Playfield list. Yeah this makes sense...
    You pick all the hard ones ;). I see what I can do.

    ahem :D

    Also, I believe this is Eleon's task but is there a way to give admin slots to the server through EAH?

    We get full quite often and I've been locked out of my own server. Is that doable in EAH?

    Noted ;). That part has to be changed anyhow since more items are available.

    What do you mean? you can set more people to admins (in Game) or what do you mean?

    Otherwise use the master/slave option. That way all your admins can use eah at the same time from their home computer.

    Or do you mean your server is full of players and noone can connect anymore?... hm that would be rather a game feature. EAH can only "kick" someone ;),

    Sorry, I should have been explained it better. I was referring to reserved slots. Let's say we have 100 player server and we want to reserve 10 of those for the admin so no one else can log in to the server after 90 but admins.

    I would also like to see this as a feature either in the Dedi or EAH. Having reserved slots is a pretty standard server feature thats needed here.

    That is a very good point. Not really a EAH thing, but let me ask the Devs. Maybe this could be done quite easy.

    What exactly is needed?

    If you want to communicate a message every x minutes, you can do it over timetable.
    But I read: Not over Chat.
    So how should it look like (I don't know MOTD myself)

    MOTD = Message of the Day.
    Basically a server message sent to a player when they log in.
    example: "Welcome to abcserver! Your admins today are: Joe, Bob, and Pandapalooza"

    Similarly, I would love to see Faction MOTD so a faction admin can set the message that their faction sees when they log in or optionally when they change playfields.
    example: "We'll be building defenses on Magma in preparation for pvp this weekend. Also, stop eatting Saadow's meatlogs. It makes him grouchy... and hungry"
    This helps to coordinate teams who log in at different times throughout the day without needing to refer to outside tools/discord.

    Appreciate it :)

    Along those same lines... a message that announces when faction members log in and out (sent to faction of course)

    I was doing this with a telnet script but apparently telnet is evil now :)

    An implemented game update would be great. Just to check the server version, send a free-text message to the server, shutdown server in a admin choosen time, run updates, start server and all Serveradmins are happy :)
