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!!
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!
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!
