Interesting idea, but I need to ask: does this allow you to install addons without a full restart of the server, and what happens to users when they try and connect? Does it show that maintenance is in progress or is it merely cosmetic?

According to the Source code, it is purely cosmetic, as it just reads a maintenance.cfg file. You still will always need to restart the server when adding addons.

This version is a bit rough and crap lol... the one I'm working on basically uses the concept but instead of reading the maintenance config, the add-on comes with a config it reads and applies from there, but no to install add ons you will still have to restart or change map (depending on the add-on) but the main reason is so that members/users don't join constantly...

But it will change the server name, to example, my server name would change to " Thirdage Gaming | Maintenance " and set a password to it (of your choice) which they (hopefully) will not find out.

Putting passwords in lua and cfg files = bad idea

True, players can download lua and cfg files right?

REQUEST: Please remove this whole post, as the command is completely terrible and needs to be re-coded desperately... To top it off, it crashes the server :3
