V Rising | How To Set Up A Dedicated Server

I’ll show you how to make a V Rising Dedicated Server in this post. You can also use a Game Server Hosting Provider to host your server. Your server will start right away.

You can, however, consult my instructions for the best course of action. Check out the full guide for the complete set of instructions on how to set up a dedicated server for the game V Rising.


How To Create A Dedicated Server For V Rising

Requirements For Server

  • 64-bit quad-core processor and Windows 10 or Server 2016+ (requires up to 2 full cores)
    Memory up to 16GB (currently uses around 4GB memory minimum)
  • 5 GB of storage (install folder)
  • V Rising, an early access game available on Steam.

How To Create The Dedicated Server

  • Create a folder called VRisingServer in C:VRisingServer.
  • Download SteamCMD for Windows here:

https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd.zip

  • In the folder, extract the contents of the zip file.
  • Put the following code in a file called FetchServerFiles.bat:

@echo off start "" steamcmd.exe +login USER PASS +force_install_dir "C:\VRisingServer" +app_update 1829350 validate +quit

  • Run FetchServerFiles.bat to get server files from Steam.

How To Start The Dedicated Server

Create a batch file called StartServer.bat with the following contents to start the server:

  • VRisingServer.exe -log has to be started.
  • Start Server.bat and wait for it to load (takes 10 minutes the first time)

This is where you’ll find your local save files on your computer:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Stunlock Studios\VRisingServer\Saves

The -persistentDataPath argument can be used to override this, much like the settings.


How To Configure The Server

Now comes the exciting part: customizing your V Rising game server. Two files can be used to change game server settings. 

  • ServerHostSettings.json
  • ServerGameSettings.json

These files can be created in the VRisingServerSettings folder. You can change the following settings (in addition to the launch line) – these settings take precedence over the launch line settings:

ServerHostSettings.json

{ "Name" : "My V Rising Server",

"Description" : "This is a role playing server",

"Port" : 27015, "QueryPort" : 27016,

"MaxConnectedUsers" : 10,

"MaxConnectedAdmins" : 4,

"SaveName" : "world1",

"Password" : "SuperSecret",

"ListOnMasterServer" : true,

"AutoSaveCount" : 40,

"AutoSaveInterval" : 120,

"GameSettingsPreset" : "StandardPvP" }

How To Join Server

Follow the steps below to join your V Rising server:

  • Click the Play button once the game has started.
  • Select Online Play.
  • At the bottom of the page, select Find Servers.
  • At the top of the page, select the Show All Servers & Settings option.
  • Search using the name of the server you created.

You can also connect using the IP/Port you specified during the first setup phase:

  • Click the Play button once the game has started.
  • Select Online Play.
  • At the bottom of the page, select Find Servers.
  • At the bottom, select Direct Connect.
  • Enter your IP address: To connect, use the port or the server ID.

Error Fix

Because it wasn’t yet publicly available in Steam, I had to manually install the Vrising dedicated server from SteamDB. You may find it here: Steam

Also, if you get the message “Windows cannot find VRisingServer.exe,” double-check the path of your executable files. My VRisingServer files from Steam, for example, are kept on my second hard drive D:, thus I had to change the path to D: before it could detect the application correctly.
