    I decided for this dev release that I would set up a new user on my server, start using the new launcher and just download a fresh copy of Starmade and drop my old install.
    Unfortunately, starting g a new server leaves me with No factions other than Trader and Pirate.

    Forgot to mention, patched to latest dev with -nogui -dev


    Am I the only one noticing this?

    Can you post the logs you get here?

    As well as if there are zip folders in data/npcConfig?

    There is no data/npcConfig There is a data/npcFactions with the following:

    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x  5 1004 1004  4096 Dec 11 16:31 .
    drwxr-xr-x 20 1004 1004  4096 Nov 20 00:54 ..
    -rw-r--r--  1 1004 1004 45929 Dec 11 16:31 npcConfigDefault.xml
    -rw-r--r--  1 1004 1004  3057 Dec 11 16:31 npcSpawnConfig.xml

    [doublepost=1482082011,1482081412][/doublepost]The log claims:

    Code:

    But:

    Can you view the ncpConfig.xml with "less" or vim?

    And check in the destination folder? "/home/starmade/StarMade/./server-database/world0/npcFactions/Trading Guild/npcConfig.xml"

    doesn't exist... as the log notes, it says that the xml file doesn't exist when it tries to copy it...

    Code:

    [doublepost=1482084225,1482084148][/doublepost]I mean, I could manually copy those files over, but I shouldn't have to.

    Alright odd they copy doesn't work. What are the permissions on the world0 folder? EDIT, Nice looking forward.
    [doublepost=1482084497,1482084231][/doublepost]Looks like we got a few other reports of this as well. You'll need to manually copy and extract for right now but the team knows about it. AndyP knows. Next time if you have issues like this post in Game Support you'll likely get a faster response. Its a bit on dev server issues though. There are quite a few of us on the testing team but very few run linux on a daily basis.

    I've created a bug report here. Login to Phabricator

    I've uploaded your logs as well to it. Its possible it'll be hidden until its reviewed by the team, but there are other users affected by this. Right now you'll just need to manually copy in the assets and unzip them.

    Thanks for finding this Andir

    EDIT: I'll also reiterate for others that read this thread. Posting in support for issues like this will tend to get them resolved faster.
    [doublepost=1482085200,1482084981][/doublepost]Directions from Lancake

    1. copy all folders in `./StarMade/data/npcFactions` to your world in `./StarMade/server-database/worldName/npcFactions`
    2. in each faction folder of `./StarMade/server-database/worldName/npcFactions`, do "extract here" on the blueprints.zip and delete the zip file afterwards

    Should look like this:

    You can do that while we're working on fixing this problem

    Ugh, the annoying part for anyone wanting to fix their server if this is happening...

    1. Start a server however you do (this is for a new world called world0...)
    2. Shut down the server
    3.
    Code:
    cd StarMade/server-database/world0
    cp -R ../../data/npcFactions ./
    mkdir npcFactions/Outcasts/blueprints
    mkdir npcFactions/Scavengers/blueprints
    mkdir npcFactions/Trading\ Guild/blueprints
    unzip npcFactions/Outcasts/blueprints.zip -d npcFactions/Outcasts/blueprints
    unzip npcFactions/Scavengers/blueprints.zip -d npcFactions/Scavengers/blueprints
    unzip npcFactions/Trading\ Guild/blueprints.zip -d npcFactions/Trading\ Guild/blueprints
    4. Restart the server

    When following this advice, I end up seeing Trading Guild and Traders... Is this normal?

    I haven't started a sever since the update, only connected to someone's windows server, but I'll try it when I get home tonight.

    Appears to be working fine for me without any effort or any need to make any edits to anything.
    I'm seeing Pirates, Trading Guild, and three new NPC factions in my pre-existing universes, and in new universes.

    correct

    the pirates and trade guild faction are the old default ones .. they will be removed from a newly generated universe in the future (probably).

    Thank you!

    Since I had the same problem, imagine you might be interested in my OS as well? If not, please ignore. :)

    Code:
    >lsb_release -a
    Distributor ID: Debian
    Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 8.6 (jessie)
    Release:        8.6
    Codename:       jessie

    So that explains why we didn't see any NPC factions after resetting my server (hosted on Ubuntu Server 16.04). We had assumed we had to discover them somehow.
