The dedicated server should load tracks from the mods folder in "Documents", too.

Ok, so for now. I need to have big hdd in my dedicated server to host my server :S

Do you plan to create lighter script to host server like for Mx Simulator ?

Could you please explain what you mean with "lighter script"?

You can change the location of the documents folder in windows settings, googling "change documents drive windows" should help you out. We had to do this on discord servers too.

Lighter script : For me, it's independant script, a script dedicated to host server without have to install Mx Bikes on the dedicated server. For example, for Mx Simulator, it's just an excutable file who run server in the windows command prompt. It uses low resources so it can be run on light VPS. It's also possible to manage lot of servers easily because it's possible to change the title name of windows prompt. Files to add tracks in the server is also very light, only few ko unlike more than 100 Mo for MxB tracks.

It's not a problem about location. It's more a problem about size of files to host server. Currently, you have to have big hard disk to host server with lot of tracks.

On the dedicated server it is possible to save disk space manually editing each track to delete the MAP, EDF and image files.
Similarly, it is also possible to delete the EDF and sound files for all bikes.
