A friend and I wanted to play Satisfactory on a dedicated server from Nitrado and play it with mods.
I noticed the web interface feature is still in development, so I cannot use this way to get mods to work.
I did find via google that there is a whole Nitrado page on most popular mods in Satisfactory (Most Popular Satisfactory Mods | nitrado.net) and how to install the mods via the FTP.
I installed the mods per the web page, but whenever I try to start the server, it shows it is Offline/NotAuthorized/etc. I notice on the web interface page that is shows "Server is online" but will randomly show the animation for "Server is shutting down" but stops after a few seconds. I then deduced that the server is crashing, as when I remove the mods and restart the server it works just fine.
I did install the "normal" version of Satisfactory , not the "-Experimental" one underneath it. I assume the normal one is Update 5 right? The Experimental is currently Update 6, which will cause issues with mods and why I did not choose that one.
I did try removing all mods and just installing the SML (Satisfactory Mod Loader) that I copied from my local directory and pasted into the Mods folder, as directed in the website I pasted above on Nitrado's official website. The server still just crashed.
Has anyone had any success running a modded server via Nitrado? We'll play the vanilla game as it is great on its own, but mods like Smart, MK++ are just great additions and we would love to enjoy them with our long game play through.
For reference, the only mods I wanted to use were: Smart, MK++ , Advanced Logistics, Underground Belts.
Thank you for any support and guidance folks have.
