Store available gametypes and mods in the server table
zykure created issue #1404 on 2013-02-05T09:21:45Z:
It would be nide to have the server send available gametypes (ca,ctf,…) and maybe the available mods (Xonotic/Vanilla,XPM,Minsta,…) to Xonstat so that this info can be stored in the database. It could then both be shown on the server_info page (which would be useful to users as they can see which gametypes/mods can be played on a server), and be retrieved via JSON requests. The latter is a feature needed by the Xonotic Pickup bot (XonPickup) to improve the automated server-picking for pickup games.
If these fields are added to the DB, another field I’d like to see is a private/public flag, which tells if the server is public and shown in the server browser. This, too, is a feature which would be useful to players if shown on the server_info page and to XonPickup for picking servers.
I understand this needs some changes in the gamecode and I’m totally unsure if this is even possible, but basically it’s just information from the config which the server should be able to retrieve :)
