Alright so I run a PvE server and it has been very popular for the past couple of days since I put it up. I work very hard to make sure that people do not grief other players houses and steal their loot. This is very hard for me to do because I have to go through a process so that I can make sure that it is all organized and I don’t ban the wrong people. Now, I was given a report that someone griefed another person and they have video proof of it. My problem is that I am unable to ban that player because it seems you are only able to ban players that are currently connected to your server. Is there a way to input a players information into a specific file to ban them that way at all? I see a ban list but the numbers do not match a steam ID so I have no idea what to do about this.
Is there any time frame for when we will be able to see server/player logs? I would like to know what everyone says in the server and what they do so that I can use that evidence to find out who did what when. Thanks!
*Edit 1: I should have mentioned, the banid “steam id” does not seem to work for this instance. This is the reason I am asking if I can manually put it in the file. I type in the banid “steam id” and it just says that in the console with nothing else following that.
SOLVED: Thanks a lot!
