    Hi everyone! :^D


    I would like to start a fresh, action-free world for undisturbed building in which there wouldn't be any NPC activity.

    Is this possible? What settings can we make to achieve this? Thanks!


    (PS: my aim isn't to end the occasional fly-bys, but to stop those tens-of-thousands of NPC ship files from piling up, because i like to do safety backups of my server data folder once in a while, and it tends to gain size pretty fast these days, though i'm not sure why.)

    In the server.cfg:

    Code:
    NPC_FACTION_SPAWN_LIMIT = 0
    This will restrict NPC faction spawning per galaxy, this should prevent any NPC factions from spawning.

    Thanks, i read about that setting recently, but i tried it with an old world, which didn't work.
    Good to know that it's supposed to effect new worlds.

    My solution was always to go into the blueprints menu and disable NPC access to every blueprint.
    I don't know if that would help with your problem.
