Creating servers in nanos world is very simple and straightforward, just a few steps and you have your server up and ready!
- OS: Windows or Linux
1.0 GHz(faster core is better than multiple cores)
50 MB(grows if having too many Players or spawned Entities)
10 MB(+ Assets & Packages size)
- Network: Recommended at least
1 MB/s(grows if having too many Players or spawned Entities)
- Network Forwarded Ports:
7778 UDP(you can change that in the Config)
On Windows, you have three options for downloading nanos world server:
- Use the executable (.exe) already located at
nanos-world/Server/NanosWorldServer.exe(if you downloaded the base game).
- Or download nanos world™ Dedicated Server tool from Steam Client.
- Use SteamCMD.
On Linux, the only way to download the server is through SteamCMD. If you are on Ubuntu/Debian, you can easily install it like that:
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!
You should probably look into
Linux & ARM Server installation to see if your operating system is entirely supported!
Downloading using SteamCMD
To download the server through SteamCMD (a command line version of Steam) please download it before proceeding.
1. After downloaded, run
steamcmd executable, once loaded you will get into it's console:
2. You can optionally define an installation folder to install nanos world server:
Steam> force_install_dir c:/nanos-world-server/
3. The next step is to login on SteamCMD, you can login anonymously with:
Steam> login anonymous
4. You can then install or update nanos world server using it's app id:
Steam> app_update 1936830
And you are done! You can quit the console:
Installing bleeding-edge version
To install the
bleeding-edge version of the server, you will need to specify it's branch when installing:
Steam> app_update 1936830 -beta bleeding-edge
An easier way to install or update nanos world server is using an one-liner command to run SteamCMD:
steamcmd.exe +login anonymous +app_update 1936830 validate +quit
steamcmd +login anonymous +app_update 1936830 validate +quit
or on bleeding-edge:
steamcmd.exe +login anonymous +app_update 1936830 -beta bleeding-edge validate +quit
steamcmd +login anonymous +app_update "1936830 -beta bleeding-edge" validate +quit
Finished! You can now proceed to the next steps to configure your nanos world server.
