Self Hosted Servers
During the entire beta phase of Miscreated self hosted servers are NOT officially supported and will mostly likely be changed during each update.
Due to the fact that self hosted server admins can adjust item spawns the Items tab on Amalgamated kiosks is disabled on self hosted servers - the Skins tab remains fully functional.
It's recommended server admins join our community Discord server for help: http://discord.gg/miscreated - Help requests go in the

Connecting to your Server
After you've installed the server and have launched the server you can connect to your server.
- In order to connect to your own local server right click
Miscreatedfrom your Games Library and Click
Create Desktop Shortcut
- Right Click on the new Desktop Shortcut and in the
URLinput replace it with the follow (Changing your IP as needed)
steam://rungameid/299740/connect +connect localhost
- Launch the game through the new shortcut and you will be automatically connected to the server when it is running.
The Miscreated server can currently use up to 4GB of ram when the game is fully loaded (a lot of information gets dynamically loaded as the server runs). An additional 30MB of RAM will be used for each concurrent player. On a fully loaded 50 player server expect the server to use up to around 6GB of RAM. Servers are forced to restart every 24 hours. Use the value "schedule_shutdown_utc" mentioned below to set an exact time each day.
All of the data for each server will be saved in a
miscreated.db (SQLite) file in the root install folder.
It's strongly recommended you do NOT edit the
miscreated.db file - you could destroy all persistent data for your server by doing so.
It's strongly recommended you backup the
miscreated.db file on a regular basis.
Additional command line options
the leading - or + is required
-sv_bind x.x.x.x(to specify which interface to use in a multihomed server. If you only have one network card, you do not need to bind an ip)
-sv_port x(default is 64090 - the game will use the starting port and the 4 ports after it as well, so default is using ports 64090-64094 - both UDP and TCP are used)
-mis_whitelist(add if you want the server to only allow whitelisted steamids to be able to connect to it)
+http_startserver(starts the remote console system so admins can issue rcon commands to alter the server while running - see below)
Additional server configuration values can be added to a
hosting.cfg file in the root install folder.
The use of some of the following options could drastically affect the performance of your server.
Do NOT edit the existing
dedicated.cfg files, only add and edit to a
