    I'm having the same problem since downloading the new update. I can confirm that this is ONLY a problem for superadmins, and that all other players and the world are backing up correctly. That message is gonna drive me crazy lol

    If I understand your question correctly, this is intended. Superadmin is not intended to be used as a "regular" group for playing or saving SSC. If you want a group to use with access to all of the commands that works properly for playing in, create a new group with the permission "*" and add "!tshock.ignore.ssc".

    First off, I definitely appreciate the fast reply!!! And maybe this isn't the right argument, but I've been playing as a superadmin for 2 years now and this is the first prob ive had with it (its always handy to be able to conjure items out of thin air or fix events when glitches occur). Any reason this restriction is happening now? And ignore ssc? that command scares me...

    Yeah, it's a recent change. Since I'm not part of the dev team, all I know is that due to the way superadmin is handled (it's a special "group" that doesn't behave like the other groups), it's not meant to be used as an all-purpose group (only administrative purposes). With the recent updates, they changed something dealing with superadmin, and now most SSC-related things are being ignored by the superadmin group. The only way to fix this is by creating a different group with all permissions, and remove the ssc-ignoring permission.

    Man you're quick ty :) What you're saying makes sense, it's just putting me in an awkward position since im over 3/4 done with the game, and while I don't want to ruin the experience for the others on my server, I can't progress if nothing saves for me. So I'll look up an 'zucchini's guide' for adding admin style permissions on a group since it doesn't seem to be working for me (and I'm tryin my best to go via the instructions on tshock, and I won't waste your time with that part), but my question is what effect does the SSC ignoring permission have on existing SSC chars?
