Satisfactory Server


Satisfactory: Construction, optimisation and satisfaction

Satisfactory is the ultimate game for anyone who is a fan of open-world building simulators. Developed by Coffee Stain Studios and released in March 2019, players take on the role of an employee at FICSIT Inc. As an engineer working on an uninhabited planet, your task is to build real production plants. Extract resources from the veins on the map, before routing them to the processing circuits you create. The elements you harvest are then transformed into various objects, such as metal plates or screws. After you build an orbital lift, you will be able to fulfil your mission of sending advanced technology materials to your employer. Once your plants are fully automated, take a step back, sip your coffee, and admire the fruit of your work. How satisfying!

Why create a Satisfactory dedicated server?

In Satisfactory, you can expect hours of hard work and play. Count on your friends to help you in this game in co-op mode. However, playing together on the same game requires additional resources, especially if you are building a giant factory. If this is how you plan to play the game, the resources of the standard computer you host games on locally may prove to be insufficient. You would also need to keep your computer powered on at all times, so that players can connect to the server in your absence. A dedicated server will deliver all the hardware resources you need, keeping resources free on your standard PC. It will also meet the need for continuous availability, so that the game you host is always online. With constant uptime, your players can connect whenever they want.
