Avast Mateys!!! Welcome back to another technical tutorial. Today I will show you how to setup an atlas single player and/or dedicated server.

There is so much incomplete information on the whole process that I took the time and compiled my own start to finish guide for setting up your very own single player and dedicated atlas server

Make sure to subscribe and join our pirate crew and don’t forget to ring the bell. You can also follow me on twitter using the links in the description.

I’ll see my scurvy crew in the next video.

1. Click and download SteamCMD
2. Create a folder where you wish to store your Atlas game server hosting files in
– Example C:AtlasServer
3. Place the newly downloading SteamCMD.exe file within it C:AtlasServer
Create a batch file named Atlas Server Update.bat Click start – type – notepad – Immediately save it as Atlas Server Update.bat and select the all files from the bottom

4. Place the following code in this batch file:
C:AtlasServersteamcmd.exe +login anonymous +force_install_dir C:AtlasServer +app_update 1006030 validate +exit

5. Right-click SteamCMD.bat and Run as Administrator – click allow if your firewall pops up with a warning message
6. Your game server files should start downloading now
7. Create a 2nd batch file, in the C:AtlasServer folder and call it Start Atlas Server.bat
8. Copy this code in the Start Atlas Server.bat file
start /high C:atlasserversteamappscommon”ATLAS Dedicated Server”ShooterGameBinariesWin64ShooterGameServer.exe Ocean?ServerX=0?ServerY=0?AltSaveDirectoryName=00?ServerAdminPassword=TEST?MaxPlayers=50?ReservedPlayerSlots=10?QueryPort=57555?Port=5755?SeamlessIP= -log -server -NoBattlEye

9. Open your browser and type in your search bar what is my ip
replace this ip for your SeamlessIP= in step 8 – Save your file

10. You have to configure your router for port forwarding – I used QueryPort=57555?Port=5755 on my server

If you have a dedicated IP use that, a DYNDNS setup also works in the server start-up string.
If your game doesn’t start up – make sure to check if your public ip address matches the one in the start-up batch file

Ok so we have 2 files created
1) the update and install batch file
2) the start server batch file
The atlas dedicated server files should now be downloading.

The next couple steps is to create a functional Atlas Server Grid database which will contain all of your islands.

10. Download the ServerGridEditor and extract it to C:AtlasSserverServerGridEditor-master – run the EXE file

Follow the rest of the video to finish the setup.

Hey man, really hope you can help me out! It keeps crashing with this error box:

Miguel Palazuelos says:

Are you hosting this from the same machine? I’ve tried doing exactly what you’ve done here. The server launches and shows as if its running but when I search Unoffical Servers it does not show up. I’ve verified all port forwarding on my router and the IP address too.

Jean-Paul Larouche says:

Awesome guide. Any chance you will try and do one for multiple servers? Or, would it be worth it changing the CellSize to something greater then 1400000?

Notoraa says:

I need some help whats your steam

YouAlwaysWin says:

Firstly, thanks for making this video. We made our own custom map, but when we sailed to our first island, we weren’t able to harvest anything on the island. Chopping trees did nothing. Can’t even pick up berries or a rock. Is there something we have to activate in order to allow us to live on an island?

Nils Johansson says:

For me the 57555 is open but not the 5755…

Ryan Lindner says:

Ok I am new and Im trying to find my routers port number, can anyone help?
