Server Installation

Creating servers in nanos world is very simple and straightforward, just a few steps and you have your server up and ready!

System Requirements​

  • OS: Windows or Linux
  • Processor: 1.0 GHz (faster core is better than multiple cores)
  • Memory: 50 MB (grows if having too many Players or spawned Entities)
  • Storage: 10 MB (+ Assets & Packages size)
  • Network: Recommended at least 1 MB/s (grows if having too many Players or spawned Entities)
  • Network Forwarded Ports: 7777 TCP/UDP and 7778 UDP (you can change that in the Config)

Windows​

On Windows, you have three options for downloading nanos world server:

  1. Use the executable (.exe) already located at nanos-world/Server/NanosWorldServer.exe (if you downloaded the base game).
  2. Or download nanos worldβ„’ Dedicated Server tool from Steam Client.
  3. Use SteamCMD.

Linux​

sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt update
sudo apt install lib32gcc1 steamcmd

Note: on Linux, you must start the server using the Shell Script ./NanosWorldServer.sh, which will configure proper paths and needed dynamic libraries which need to be loaded!
