Mod crashing servers when changing to same map again?
My mod (mercs) crashes the server with an error message once you change to the same map forcefully (i.e Map list from server)
so to get arena two times in a row i need to do arena -> moor -> arena
When i try to change to the same map as admin it says the map doesnt exist which is strange
need some help here, maybe TBS knows what it is? some bug?
this is the error message, pls halp

I got this same error when I didn’t have the ?modname option in the maplist
also, it’s arena3 not just arena I think

This usually happens when the server, for some reason, loses connection with Steam/Workshop. The server tries to check custom maps/mods in every cycle of the rotation iirc, but it’s not too good at keeping the connection alive, nor is it smart enough to reload the mod/maps when there’s no way their version is not up-to-date.
For some reason, it cascades into clients not being able to load that map.
Depending on your rotation and exactly which custom things you have on your sv, the server may stop responding, may disappear from Steam browser or cycle only to the maps that are available. Mods will probably fail harder because whatever.
Question: are you using modname and sdkfile id to fetch these items?
Or do you have a txt? (I don’t know how to set this up in few steps)
Some related threads:
?modname in maplist crashes the server on startup
basically the mod works fine as long as the maplist doesnt change the map to the same map or when the adminrestartmap command gets used, then it crashes
im hoping for a response from torn banner on this issue

This happens to all my modded servers. Giant slayers, black knight, laser swords. No idea why. Though not that common.

I just attempted to reproduce this using one of our Blacknight servers with no luck. Is there any other steps I may have missed?
log in as admin, adminrestartmap
then it should crash with the message, if not then its only on my mod and i dont know how to fix it :d

I remember it crashing when doing adminrestartmatch while running black knight, but I thought doing an adminchangemap to the same map didn’t crash. Might be wrong… it’s been a while.
I just tried on blackknight mod, same problem as in the OP
adminrestartmap -> SDK transition error server crash
adminchangemap to the same map -> map is disabled or doesnt exist
maplist change to the same map -> SDK transition error server crash
Server commandline :
AOCFFA-moor_p?modname=BlackKnight?steamsockets?maxplayers=16 -seekfreeloadingserver -Port=7797 -QueryPort=27170
