Step 1: Setting Up Your Server

The first step in hosting your own V Rising server is setting up the server. Here’s how you can do it:

1. Download the Server Files

The first thing you need to do is download the V Rising server files from the official website. You can find the download link on the V Rising website under the “Server” section. Once you’ve downloaded the files, extract them to a folder on your computer.

2. Configure the Server Settings

Next, you’ll need to configure the server settings. Open the “server.ini” file in the server files folder using a text editor. This file contains all of the server settings and can be edited to your liking. Some of the settings you can change include the server name, password, and player limit.

3. Port Forwarding

In order for players to connect to your server, you’ll need to forward the port that the server is using. The default port for V Rising is 7777. How you can port forward depends on your router, so consult your router’s documentation or do a search online for instructions specific to your router.

4. Run the Server

Once you’ve configured the server settings and port forwarded, you can run the server by running the “VRSrv.exe” file in the server files folder. The server will take a few moments to start up, and then you’ll be able to connect to it using the game’s console.

Step 2: Customizing Your Server

Once you’ve got your server up and running, you can customize it to your liking. Here are some things you can do:

1. Mods

If you want to add mods to your server, you’ll need to download the mod files and add them to the “Mods” folder in the server files folder. You’ll also need to add the mods to the “ModList.txt” file in the server files folder.

2. Console Commands

You can use console commands to customize your server even further. Some of the commands you can use include setting the time of day, changing the weather, and spawning in items.

Step 3: Inviting Players

Now that your server is up and running, you can invite players to join. Here are some ways you can do that:

1. Sharing the IP Address

One way to invite players is to share the IP address of your server with them. They can then enter the IP address in the game’s console to connect to your server.

2. Joining Public Servers

You can also submit your server to public server lists so that other players can find and join it. This can help you build a community of players around your server.
