Hello! This is my first time posting here at all, so I have no idea what I'm doing.
I am running a modded Server for the first time ever. It has about 130 mods in it. I'm using the Forge Server Loader thingy to launch the server, and I run it with 12 GB of RAM. I have about 4-6 People including myself playing on this server, using the Technic Launcher to load everything.
The problem is that sometimes when a player abruptly loses connection to the server, when they log back in, they're sent back to spawn, and their Vanilla inventory, levels, and any player data saved in the main Play DAT file (i.e. Witchery Vampire stuff) is reset to what a new player has. Any other modded inventory is completely untouched, such as Baubles, Thaumcraft stuff, or Cosmetic Armor. There is no weird error client or server side when they disconnect or reconnect, they are just suddenly "reset". Their UUID is exactly the same as it was before, I checked. It has happened to every single person connecting to the server except one person, and that is because they only ever logged in once.
We have tried running the world on a server set up by the guy who used to run our servers (he went off to college and can no longer host) and running an FTB Infinity Evolved Server. In all three, our inventories get Reset sometimes.
When I say sometimes I mean I can play for a few hours, log off the server, log back in 2 IRL days later and still have my stuff.
Some examples we found while testing:
I teleported a player in creative long distance to me, they got disconnected, when they reconnected they were at spawn, in survival mode, with no items except the items a new player spawns in with i.e. books from mods. Happened once.
3 Players flying around, I hit the close button on the server, it happens to one player. (done this one about 30 times, happened to me twice, and another player once.) Not saying it can't happen to multiple at the same time, it just hasn't, yet.
Server Lags out, the player hits disconnect button while the server is lagged out when they reconnect it happens. Happened to me and another player once each.
I have tried:
Running the Server as an Administrator
Going through every single log when the server loads to see if something weird happens, both client and Server Side.
Updating Java, about 30 times.
I will be trying to run it on another laptop here pretty soon, and yes, I am running all this on a laptop, and currently, my laptop can outdo all my friend's Desktops.
I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.
