  1. Choose and setup your Game server.

    The server configuration we would advise depends entirely on whether you plan to utilise your game server as a solo machine or as part of a cluster. We advise using Game-1 and 2 servers for occasions like LAN parties and e-sports competitions.

    If you’re a hosting provider, it takes a lot of resources to build multiple virtual private servers (VPS) on Dedicated Servers. You should think about which options allow for the highest single threaded performance as well as secure and dependable network solutions to maximize the number of VPS per dedicated Farming Simulator servers. In this case, we suggest using the GAME-2 range servers.

    The following minimal configuration for each virtual Farming Simulator server is advised:

    •    2.0 GHz Intel or equivalent AMD dual-core processor.
    •    2 GB RAM.
    •    6 GB free hard drive space.
    •    100 MB/s is the recommended speed for a dependable internet connection.

    Please keep in mind that this advice applies to a small group of players. Higher performance OVHcloud Game servers allow you to host more players for a more advanced gaming experience.

    Once you have chosen the type of server, you can launch its installation from the OVHcloud Control Panel. First, select your operating system (Windows Server, Dedicated Server Ubuntu or Dedicated Server Linux). You can then log in and configure it to suit your needs, and the specifics of your infrastructure.

  2. Configure your Farming Simulator server.

    Follow the recommended steps below to prepare your custom Farming Simulator server:

    •    You can configure it directly from the Steam Workshop.
    •    Install the server files via SteamCMD.
    •    Enter your command lines, admin credentials, and passwords.
    •    Ensure that UDP ports 1200, UDP ports 27000 to 27020 and TCP ports 27030 to 27039 are open.
    •    Launch your server for the first time, then reboot it (recommended step).
    •    Your server is now ready to use.

    Even though the server comes with a lot of storage (500 GB), we recommend adding more space for backups.

    Each server has a range of IPv6 addresses in addition to a public IPv4 address. More can be ordered (up to 256 per machine). They make it possible for you to appear on the list of Farming Simulator servers.
