Remove admin on one's own dedicated server

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to remove a user's admin privileges in said admin's own dedicated server (i.e. from the user whose cluster token was used to create server)?

I know to remove the secondary admins is to simply remove them from adminlist.txt

 

 

 

In anticipation of follow-up questions:

Why would you want this?

     1. A peaceful game without being hounded by "Kick X", "Ban Y", "Bad seed, regen world" 5x per minute.

     2. Holding events and being able to participate in said events without temptation/accusations of interference.

But the server would be uncontrollable?

     Could still shut down the server by killing the process, and that's about all the admin power I would ever need.

Unfortunately it requires some tomfoolery in the memoryspace of the server to do it with your own token.

A workaround that you could do without any technical stuff is to have a trusted friend generate a key for you to use on your server.  Of course they'd have admin on your server, hence the trusted part.

I see. Thanks for the information. I'll pass on that workaround, for the same reason you mentioned.

Thanks.
