Hi Gazebo server always try to connect to server at launch time. and terminates if it do not gets response in 30 seconds. Is there any appropriate way to avoid this behaviour? Can all models be downloaded as a tarball and accessed locally by the gazebo server?

According to user guide ( http://gazebosim.org/user_guide/startedmodelsdatabase.html) Gazebo uses two environment variables to find model databases.


 This is a URI that points to an online
 model database. The default value is


 This is a colon-separated list of  local paths that Gazebo should search  for databases. 
  Each path should point to the directory that contains the  database config. 
  These paths take  precedence over the online URI database.

By modification of these variables, this behavior can be avoided.
