Do you mean officially hosted servers? On our upcoming initial release we'll only have officially hosted servers. Servers we're running and controlling. Once those servers are stable we'll allow players to rent servers from @Clinton who runs Allgamer.net. After some time of stability and control we'll release backend software and allow players to host servers on their own rigs :) That's the plan at least :p


hummm what's the difference between him running it and players running there own you still have to make server program for him to run it on his pay for server rental site oooo wait for him to pull sum private cash if your going to release the server release it for every one first time I'm mad with stn

You've misunderstood my comment, players will eventually get server backend. They'll be able to run servers on their own machines.

Not sure what you're aiming at here. Server software will be released when the team feels it's ready for release, there's no grand conspiracy.

This likely will not happen in an alpha state because any self respecting dev wouldn't expect a player to both manage a broken server and a buggy client. Server software will be released when it's super stable and respectable.

Allgamer is our choice as official along with player alpha hosting because they're the best company we've ever dealt with simply put.

This was such a nice thread for a while :(
I know right?

@way420 I think the current plan for servers has been made clear, and while I understand the logic of just going ahead and releasing the server backend software on release, I also understand the logic behind holding it back until STN is more stable and ultimately more enjoyable. Not just from a player standpoint but for server owners/operators as well.

Just let the devs do the game how they want it. Its not even out in Alpha and people are already bitching.

@Clinton do you know how much a server will be to rent. doesn't have to be exact just a ballpark figure would be nice
Don't quote me, but I'm expecting around $1/player. We'll have to see how the resource usage goes once the release is out and make a decision from there.
