Crossposting from the github issue I opened --- A bit of a user-level request. Zero modifications should be made to the server.properties file whatsoever. Reasons why, are that upon installation of the server mod, the properties file, as it was set up by the server administrator, will not be altered in any way. In hMod, on installation and update, the server.properties file would be modified by the mod -- all comments placed by would be stripped without the server administrator's consent. I'm not sure about others, but before updating hMod, I had some settings commented out for later reference (and re-enabling later) and they were stripped out. Pissed me off to no end. Keeping the mod specific properties in a separate file is a lot better for everyone in the end, IMO.
