Yes this needs to be reopened as the issue is back with a vengeance mostly with using Expansion I get the server to boot with these mods,..

But if I was to add any others for example @Air Strike, @MunghardsItemPack, @MuchstuffPack, @OP_BaseItems,.. etc etc.. server will not boot,

Having the ability to add larger script baring mods together with expansion is needed to at least accommodate 60+ mods including Expansions mods and this script limit issue shouldnt be an issue anymore, The issue has been around since 1.13 at the least, A much higher script limit is drastically needed asap, I will also post this information in other relevant tasks to give wider acknowledgement in hopes a fix will arrive before the year is finished.

Please address the issue again. I've had the issue with out own Server and I know a few others, who are stuck with the same issue.
@Geez is there anything that changed since it was changed to Assigned again ?

Thank you for re-opening this issue! Looking forward to a test candidate on experimental branch!

Ran into this issue again, I tried adding vehicles to my live server and encountered #initglobals.
I built a test server copying 1/1 including load order and all mods and the test server did not encounter #initglobals and was able to run 14 vehicle mods ontop of the live mod list...

I was hoping to see a potential fix in 1.16 but I dont see anything about it in the notes... Does this mean, with the new gun that I see noted, that we will now have less scripts we can load and less serverFPS for 1.16?

MindGames115 added a comment.EditedJan 28 2022, 12:25 AM

Disregard the above modlist, it is not relevant as the issue I was encountering was due to two admin mods being loaded at the same time hogging a lot of script room.

But I do agree, I would love to at the very least hear some thoughts on why or what the script limit is and why it exists?

Edit:

I would also like to apologize for not providing as much information as I could that was relevant when I created this ticket. I unfortunately created it during a time when I was under a lot of stress. I would simply like to figure out or understand why such a thing exists when attempting to add more than 5 or so really script heavy mods.

There have been reports that 1.16 Experimental has indeed addressed script restrictions once again. I have seen one reported success from a server owner that initially had issues with 1.15, but 1.16 EXP allowed execution of their desired modset without error.

Holding my breath for this.
