Update Server Version

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:
Community Discord: https://discord.gg/nitrado
Guides section: https://server.nitrado.net/guides

  • Is there a way to update the game version of The Forest?

    On the dashboard it says v0. which I'm assuming is the game version, and would make this an alpha/beta version of the game. I'd like to at least have a 1.0+ release of the game.

    Can I import the files from my local TheForestDedicatedServer folder from Steam and replace the files currently existing to have the current game version?

  • No, unfortunately this is not possible. The server always has the stable version running. the latest server version is: v0. more infos regarding updates etc you can get at Steamdb -> The Forest · AppID: 242760 · SteamDB

  • Thanks for your reply. The issue I'm running into is that certain items are not available to craft, such as the Large Stick Holder and Large Rock Holder, which were added to the game in Ovtober 2016, and are available on the Local server I used to run from the Dedicated Server tool from Steam.

    Comparing the dates on the files from the nitrado server vs my local server, the nitrado files appear to be about 2 years older. Does that mean the steam version is not running a stable version of the server or that the nitrado version is running an older stable version?
