Getting a server started

Post by EmX » Tue Nov 13, 2012 8:33 pm

I'm really happy with Nulear Fallout, but I'm having a very hard time getting my server populated. Any suggestions for popular modes and mpas to get it going? thanks for any helpful comments.
Cheers

We actually have some really good tips on how to get your server populated here;

The key things are...
  • player resources (willing regulars/community members) and their activeness in getting servers started
  • time and patience
  • finding something unique to run to give to the players (has to also captivate them) map/mode/rotation-wise
  • seeding computer(s) on your end (when a server is empty, I seed with the computer I game with as well as an alternative computer right beside my playing computer)
  • trying to stay active while seeding a server - although putting your guys in the server as idle is better than naught, staying active will surely help get a server going more so (don't go hard on the players or they'll leave and try keeping things as balanced as possible keeping that first thing in mind)
  • rinse and repeat all the above to eventually get a self filling server (could take up to a few months or just a few weeks if you're lucky)
