Dedicated Server

I tried searching and didn’t find an active topic for a dedicated server. I had found an old link that went nowhere for such a topic, so I figure the thought had been mentioned, but I don’t know what the end result was. Is there a way for a dedicated server to be created or is there a potential for that in the future?

I ask as I think it would help with my Rival spawn issue. I used to have sooo many Rivals. Then I needed them for schematic points. Needless to say, they are now an endangered species!! Lol! I read that it takes up to an hour for a new one to generate. So I would love to leave the game running, but I’m really running my GPU at the same time for no reason. A dedicated server would just run the mechanics, not the graphics.

Anyway, I’m sure I don’t have to break it all down for the awesome people who made this game, I was just hoping that it might be on the books or already possible and I’m just not aware.

Thanks so much you guys!! :blush::+1:

Dedicated servers are not a thing in GZ.
Rivals are not created by waiting, they’re created by destroying machines in a region. So if you want more of them, go kill some stuff!
The only rival that is tied to a time limit is the Reaper, which can spawn once per hour per region.
Hope that helps!

You rock! Thank you very much! I actually just noticed that myself about the killing some machines generates the rivals. So I’ll continue that! Thanks for the info though!

Great work to all! :blush::+1:

It would be really sweet of you could have a dedicated server we have 3 dedicated servers right now and a large discord community I bet would love to play this game I’m not a fan of only being able to either play solo or open up your game for anyone that’s not cool

I don’t think that this will ever be possible for GZ. It’s not how the game was designed for.
One instance, a world, is always bound to one player. This players progress is saved local in this world.

Dedicated servers wouldn’t just require to set up a server. It would require GZs basement completly to be changed.

Maybe it could be an idea, a feature request for a sequel.

It would be nice if GZ would become a Valve game with the protections that Valve servers offer when players try to use mods and cheats in a public game some of them are blocked. It is better than the ZERO protection we have now.


Boy I wish they had dedicated servers as an option. I’d be fine with me having two different characters. One for the dedicated server and one for solo. I mean I could live with a 3rd one being just for online. But I get it, as of right now, they just don’t have it as a way to play yet. Hopefully it will be an available option in the future! :grin::+1:
