Is there a way to start a room when my server starts? (no need for client to connect for it to start?) reason being I have a world that will continue to do things like animals moving walls decaying etc
Start room when server starts
Currently, there's no way to create rooms without having a client to connect to.
One thing you can do is disabling the
autoDispose - to let rooms alive even without clients connected to it. It's still a good idea to have some sort of timeout to prevent your rooms from living forever. Here's a similar question: https://discuss.colyseus.io/topic/71/onleave-timeout/2
Hope this helps! Cheers!
