Hello Wamba,
Thanks for sharing your concerns. I do believe there isnt anything wrong with yout server though. The force update button is available if a mod has gone corrupt, is only half installed or something else is wrong with the mod and there might be something wrong on our end. The Force Update button will force the old file to be removed and replaced by the current version. This is a choice if something is wrong, not a must like the blue Update Mod button. So its kind of the same like a refresh button. If you feel everything is ok, no Forced Update is needed :)
Should you have any other problem or concern, always feel free to contact us via a ticket as well. Its usually the fastest way to get an answe.

Hi toolz,

My problem is that all my mods are in this state and when I try to update them they break. I tried this yesterday and ended up losing a lot of dinos and stuff.

Thoughts?

Hi toolz,

the availablility to the button Force Update does not mean that there is something wrong. My bad. i explained it incorrect. I had to say: The force update button is used if a mod has gone corrupt, is only half installed or something else is wrong with the mod and there might be something wrong on our end.
So if all works well on your server, there is no need to press the button. Nothing to worry about at all. I have a server myself and havent had to use it ones. There was a case though that a user installed a mod and it didnt work, it turned out that the mod was downloading itself and the user pressed restart. The mod was more then half downloaded and installed but not fully, and the mod was therefor in the list but not working. After a Force Update the mod redownloaded itself and it started working again.
Your server seems to be online and i see no need to use the button for you, all mods seem to have downloaded correctly. If you have any problems with mods after tonights auto-restart, just write us a ticket and we'll gladly look into it to solve the issue.
Have fun gaming and greets :) ,
