Hello, in this article you will learn how to add your own "SessionSave.Ylands" 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

Getting the Exploration Save Ready

Here you will take your Exploration save and make it ready to upload to the Nitrado server.

  • 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:
    "SessionData":"./SessionSave.ylandsgame"
  • "Restart" the server and your settings and save game will be applied.
