Hello all first off i want to say how much i enjoyed this game myself and my friends are upwards of 600 plus hours in it. I have been to several hosting providers and it seems when we create game worlds they are large and resource rich. We have no luck finding a provider that not only updates the files in a timely fashion but where we dont bog down the servers. So my question is this i run a fairly decent system and would like to know how easy it is to install and run our own server (windows server) on our own machines. I downloaded and installed steamcmd however i am stuck at this point . I have tried running the commands as per the pinned steamcmd post above but the cmd does not recognize that command? So i am not sure what i should be doing at this point is there an updated easy step by step guide on setting up the server for beginners? I have not done this before. Rising world would be the "only" game i would like to host.I am not able to download the game server files through cmd with the commands listed on the forum?
I appreciate any tips guide on this. Or if one has an affordable option that doesn't cost over 50 bucks a month without a guarantee that the server doesn't bog down. We have tried viilayer (terrible) ( Zap too expensive same issue ) . and nitrado same issue bogs down with max server settings they offer. Again we like big cities / maps lots of buildings and posters within game.
I really want to enjoy this game without lag and bog so i am hoping if i can get the steamcmd sorted we can run it on our own machines but i would appreciate some guidance on how to do that best. Thanks alot
