How does hosting several maps at once work with Nitrado?

  • Hello! Title pretty much states the question, but if want to server cluster host all the official maps at once (6 or so of them), how does that work with Nitrado?

    From what I read, when you choose a plan it only keeps one map on at a time, right? So would I have to purchase 6 or so Nitrado's in order to cluster host all the maps?

    Thank you!


  • Correct. If you want to run any amount of maps exactly at the same time you would need to have 1 server per map.

    Now what some have done is run 1 server, 1 map for like weekdays, then change the map on the weekend, then change it back on monday.

    Not this is a single profile file for the player. Which means the filesize will continue to increase. But say you decide to run one map for a month, and you switch back your existing game may be gone as the savefile eventually writes over.
