Hello, in this article you will learn how to switch to exploration mode on your Nitrado Ylands Game Server.

Getting Started

  • Navigate to your Nitrado Web interface
  • Stop your server and wait 3-5 minutes
  • Go to "General Settings"
  • Change the Game State to "Use latest current savegame"
  • Change the Game Mode to "Explore"
  • Save Changes and leave the server stopped

Making the Exploration Save

  • Startup Ylands (your game in Steam) and create a new multiplayer exploration world.
  • Name the world something easy and memorable
  • Load into the game, then save and exit.
  • Navigate to the steam library on your local computer:
    • Generally it can be found here by default:
      C:\Program Files (x86)]\Steam\userdata\[Your ID number]\298610\remote\SaveGames
  • Here will be the new world you created:"SaveGameName.ylandsgame" extension.
    • Copy this file to your desktop for easy access.
  • Rename the copied file on your desktop to:
    SessionSave.ylandsgame

Applying the save to your server

  • Under tools, navigate to the "File Browser" of your server.
  • Select your "Ylands" Game Folder.
    • Find SessionSave.ylandsgame in the "Ylands" folder.
    • Delete or rename this folder (Example: SessionSave.ylandsgame_Old)
  • Upload your "SessionSave.ylandsgame" from your desktop to your "Ylands" Game Folder.
    • You can use the "Upload file" button at the bottom.
    • Wait for the Upload to finish
  • Click on "DsConfig.json" and modify the "SessionData element" to read as the following:
    "SessionData":"./SessionSave.ylandsgame"
  • Hit the "Restart" button and your settings and save game will be applied.
