I find the issue about persistence.
On my side persistence not work if i launch the server with -autoInit
I give a try this morning without -autoInit and that work, but its weird.
The screen pop up (saving data...) and stuck, i look at the server console and i see game finished, i press escape the save screen gone and im able to move. I leave the server, log again,(mission load) choose a slot and my crate and vehicle are saved.
I close the server, and launch it with -autoInit command, the game load the persistence (i found myself my vehicle and the crate where i leave), i move again the crate and the vehicle, do a server save and exit and same thing the mission restart after 5 second.
I choose a slot, enter the server and player persistence is not loaded (i spawn at the start zone not where i leave) and the previous save is loaded (when the server was running without -autoInit).
I try this with Cloud or Local save, without -autoInit persistence work, with -autoInit thats not work
