you can give your items volume so they take hold space,
I did this in my Alien Worlds Mod
https://app.box.com/s/n6277o21qxqo3mhgjmxi
you will see items take hold space so make sure that you give some hold space for the items in a ships loadout, this only really effects smaller fighters with low hold volume
I know there is a script to clean player files although i have forgotten then name of it.
Ion cross problem ?

Ioncross is a few things:
* Multiplayer server operator (obsolete)
* Single player character editor
* Some utilities for the above

can you explain problem a bit more ?
is the amount of weapons/items in holds making problems ?

you may be able to edit the chars that are causing problems
with Ion Cross or DSAccount Manager.

maybe this will help

FLPlayerCleaner will do what you want but you'll need to add a batch file to run it on reboot if you want it to run automatically. Otherwise you'll have to do it manually.

Direct Link

Pertinent Thread

The batch would read thusly:
Start <file location>\flplyrcleaner.exe /clean

The batch I use copies the multiplayer file to a backup location prior to running the playercleaner tool.

Looks like this:
xcopy "c:\documents and settings\<computer name>\my documents\my games\freelancer\accts\multiplayer" "D:\playerbackups\multiplayer\" /E /V /H /Y
set _time=%time:~0, -3%
ren d:\playerbackups\multiplayer "MP %date:/=-% %_time::=-%"
Start d:\software\flsoftware\tools\flplyrcleanerv1_010\flplyrcleaner.exe /clean

So, the first line copies the multiplayer folder to a new location on the secondary drive (D
The second and third lines rename that backed up folder to one with the date of the backup using date and time. (looks like MP mm-dd-yyyy hh-mm-ss)
The last line starts the player cleaner tool on the active multiplayer folder.

This batch file runs on startup whenever the computer reboots or, if you use scheduled tasks you can set it to run weekly (which is what we do). By creating a backup file first you can easily correct any problems that may or may not arise.

This tool does not intelligently prune your swollen inventory. I'm not even sure if it counts up to 100 and deletes anything extra, I've never really looked at it. For all I know it finds any player accounts that have an overly large inventory and deletes the entire inventory although I suspect it's a little more lenient than that.

I hope this helps.

edit: btw, all hail Adoxa for his work with FLPlayerCleaner and the batch files I posted, I did not create them, he did.

I'd have to check my notes but I don't recall that we ever implemented those hacks. We never really had the problem. On the rare occasions we did, usually a quick edit of the files in the offending account would resolve it.
Setting FLPlayerCleaner to do it automatically every week removed the issue from our radar.

Keep in mind that it's not just more than 100 items in the hold that's the problem. It's also a matter of total number of items in all characters in the account.

So, if there's a maximum of 100 items on each character then there's a theoretical maximum of 500 items in an account. If you were to increase the number of player slots in each account you would have to decrease the amount permissible on each character to keep the total number of items below 500 in that account.
