I'm Opening My Own Server

Post by SkyEye MCCIX » Fri Nov 06, 2015 2:27 am

I've been having trouble connecting to any servers lately, so I decided I'll just make my own! In the main menu of YSFlight, click "Network" then click "Client". In the middle bar, type in these numbers:

103.3.82.109

It is usually open at around 4-5:00 PM (16-17:00) in East Asia time, (pro tip: American time is on the exact opposite side of Earth; switch AM/PM)

My nickname is, of course, "SkyEye". I usually fly an ADFX-01 Morgan with purple smoke (I always fly with purple smoke!).

I highly recommend getting a No-IP address (free) unless you are one of the rare people who has a non-changing IP address.

192.168.x.x

That is an internal IP assigned to your computer by your router ie. something we cannot connect to (unless we share the same router, which is not the case). For us to connect we need your external IP. For this you can look up "What is my IP" on Google and copy paste that here.

However once you have that external IP it is best to follow Patrick's advice and obtain a No-IP address as it allows you to have a domain name of your choice and is much simpler to remember than plain numbers, much like the IPs you see on the serverlist.

There is more to this however, such as opening ports on your router for the server to receive and send data. I recommend reading this topic: viewtopic.php?t=1529. It is fairly comprehensive, so take a look.

Once you have configured everything correctly, the (stock, I'm assuming) console should have the last few lines:
IP: 192.168.x.x
Port: 7915
Ready to go!

Due to a few problems that I cannot state, I will not be able to keep this server up 24/7. It will sometimes be up, just not always.

Suddenly I had a flashback to Crocodile Dundee.

I don't think Chloe needs her gender to be approved by YSF, in any case, but I sometimes wonder if there is a language gap going on with u2fly.

No, I only check is it joke or not. Think, you remember some guy on YSFHQ forum, that sad he is a girl.
If Chloe is really girl, so no problem.
I know that some woman pilots is better than man.

Ok! great!
After April, I will, I guess, open my own server! :)

One question: Though I read about it!....Can I know, Is it better to use stock maps/pack or custom maps/pack?
If, custom map/pack, I guess, I got to notify before hand???

Generally, how much time must a server be online?? One hour, would be too less I guess.... :?

Thanks guys :)
