If you are reading this: what about a server mod where your character can be played according to what you want, or when you disconnect, it continues playing just with the normal, mundane everyday stuff, like Endgames servers ... Essentially becomes an NPC when no player is connected to the character or decides to not get out of autopilot.

So kind of like Ark servers where your character just sleeps when you are not online?

Not just sleep, more like, your character just switches to survival mode as a bot (like, doing some hunting, gathering, defense of the home, maybe training if that is a thing but only to sustain itself, not to get more advanced). Would not mean it can't die either, but just that it has a script of what to do when player's offline. Oh and when player comes online, can choose to play or spectate from character perspective.

Okay, so like an autopilot for characters. I could definitely see resource farmers abusing that heavily.

I can see that too, but, there could be measures against that. Like, the 'autopilot' will only ever perform 'life's' basic functions, the 'mundane everyday stuff'.
