Server Hosting FAQ
The game uses UDP ports 13300 and 27015 for multiplayer, so those ports should be opened, if you would like to host a game. There is also automatic system that will try to open the ports, but it can fail and on those cases the server would not be visible. We will be improving this in the coming updates.

To host your own dedicated server:

Following instructions on installing SteamCMD client
https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD#Downloading_SteamCMD

Launch SteamCMD client and run commands
login anonymous app_update 460300

After that the dedicated server is installed into SteamCMD's folder and can be found under steamapps/common/IceLakes Dedicated Server/ directory.

On Windows the executable should be launched with -batchmode -nographics parameters.

On Linux there are no need for additional parameters. -logFile /dev/stdout can be used to see the log printout in current console.

There is a server.cfg file in the same folder, which can be used to configure the server settings.

EDIT: We have also missed updating all the level ids into server.cfg, here are all the current ids:
Level_Forest_Lake, Level_Fishing_Islands, Level_Roach_Lake, Level_Pike_River, Level_Moose_Lake, Level_North_River, Level_West_Coast, Level_Snowy_Mountains, Level_Duck_Pond, Level_Korvas, Level_Hardy_Herring, Level_Clear_Waters, Level_Emperors_Garden, Level_Ice_Lakes, Level_Gold_Rush, Level_Glacier, Level_Tropical_Freeze, Level_Tammerkoski, Level_Siilinkari

Hopefully you will add options to host to modify current multiplayer session, so that host can map settings (season, time of day and map length) without closing MP-host and doing it again..

Also, is it possible to get map info also to pause menu in multiplayer games?

Yes these features are all coming in the next few updates. Map info is already done and we can hopefully release this update later today.

Plz improve server networking .:hungarian:

My friend cannot see my server.

I have already tried both in-game and dedicated server,and the two UDP ports was forwarded. I can play in the server by LAN, and the port have some data sending. But my friend cannot see it.:stalin:

Hello Iceflake, cool game you got there...literally!

My dedicated server does not work any longer after the update. It says its not running the same version. I tried updating by re-installing but it still wont work.

Any ideas?

Thx,
Z

Seems we forgot to make the dedicated package publicly available. It should be fixed now, sorry about that.

Please tell me how to Idle BAN settings. I want to server.cfg file format. thanks.
Iceflake  [developer] Nov 23, 2016 @ 11:07pm 
We haven't really had anyone host the dedicated server outside of ourselves, so the features are still kind of lite. We have some admin console commands coming in the future.

If anyone has any feature requests, we would like to hear those!
touhoku_japan Nov 24, 2016 @ 6:08pm 
thanks to reply previous message.
Then, Dedicated Server cannot make 2 or 3 instance. and serverport 13300 cannot change. I need make many instance on 1 server. thanks.
Iceflake  [developer] Nov 25, 2016 @ 3:11am 
Ok, we'll add this option in the next update.
