Server (requirements?)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I don 't know if I wrote in the right section of the forum or not, but there was a question. Please tell me what the requirements are for the server to keep it from hanging and working well? I mean the hardware itself: Processor, RAM, etc.?

+ What speed should the Internet have? (25, 50, 100, 300, 1000 Mbps:) )

It's a common question, but there is no answer for it, because it depends on your plans with the server.

For example:

1) The amount of players

2) If you'll have heavy mods (and if so, the level of their optimization)

3) If you have sufficient scripting experience so that you can optimize all of your scripts

Obviously, if nothing is optimized - mods are bloated and scripts do what they do inefficiently, causing your resources to ask more from your server's CPU and RAM memory, you will start hitting the limits of your server's specs much quicker.

On top of these unpredictable things standing in the way of giving good advise, a large gamemode just requires a server or PC with decent specs. It's trial and error, you will just have to estimate the type of machine required based on what you're planning to do, and see if it's running smoothly and continues doing so as the player count (popularity) grows. If not, start with optimizing your gamemode, and otherwise selecting a better host.

* Note: the reason we can't give you a proper estimate on what kind of server specs you need even if you tell us about your plans, is because we don't know the level of optimization in your gamemode and obviously can't reliably take the word of its creator for it.

Mods optimized. Players like 4000)?

So take my advise and go for trial & error, if you start with a powerful dedicated server then less so.
