I need to store the Reserved Server ID in a Data store to reference data, but the default strings are 55 characters. I noticed that the last 11 characters (_jAaAAAAAA2) are the same for all attempts of creating a server. Is this guaranteed to always be the same for a specific place?
Are The Last 11 Characters Of A Reserved Server Id Dependent On The Place?
I wouldn’t count on it, but you can use the scope argument of datastores to overcome the 50 character limit.
I think I am going to have to rely on it then. I would need to make a lot of GetDateStore calls for this.
I don’t think GetDataStore calls use any of your datastores resources, and you only need to make the call when you need to retrieve data from that reserve server.
Don’t make assumptions on the format of the reserved server keys. It’s not a documented format, so even if 99% of the time the code contains a certain suffix, that still doesn’t guarantee it is 100% that way or will always be that way. Only trust what is documented properly on the wiki.
Guess what I thought of the function was wrong. A quick test shows it takes <0.001 seconds to get the DataStore, so it should be a safe hack. Just got to hope that the hack doesn’t any long term effects.
