Hey V, been reading some posts on the forums for Outlaws on how to shut down the Outlaw server with a proper method. One of the Devs is getting with one of the programmers to confirm proper shut down method. But posted on using Ctrl+C, Here is that post: "Its Ctrl+C Just press once. may take a while before the server shuts down. If you press more, you force stop. Then it does not close correctly."

Not sure which window to use the Ctrl+C in, but here is the link to the steam forum page where this is located. >> https://steamcommunity.com/app/840800/d ... 306926827/

Hope this helps

We are running the server as a Windows service, so there is no interacting application window where I could press CTRL+C. The reason for this is so that on a server restart, the server is also restarted automatically, also should it crashes, it restarts automatically. Also used for the daily restarts.

I am not sure if the powershell offers the option to a "graceful" shutdown. where it waits till all threads are closed. Maybe you could add this as additional info in the Steam discussion thread Taz.

I still think that this is an issue with the internal database not saved correctly and the server reading from a snapshot it did a few minutes earlier, hence the loosing items, resetting to a default position in the game world.

The Outlaws server is available under a new IP:Port
172.106.174.22:46415

You can either connect to it with the ingame server browser, or by creating a Dektop link with the following content: steam://172.106.174.22:46415

V server needs to be wiped due to new update that suggests all private servers to do so.

Thanks
