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!

    Hey guys, mr. noob here. So every-time I try to upload a world save to my server, I see a gray gear next to it and it never gives me the option to select that save when starting my server. It used to work, I've been trying this on the experimental version, steam version, regular 17.79 version outside of Steam, I can't figure out why this doesn't work anymore. I've tried new saves, old saves, etc. Even saves that I could load previously don't anymore. I'l providing a screenshot of all of my current saves I've uploaded because I've tried everything I can think of from creating a new save solo or hosting a server within the game itself and I am totally stumped.

    I'm trying to get my server to set up publicly, with mods (or no mods) with modified resource and enemy settings. If there is a way to achieve this, without having to upload the save file, I'd like to know, because this is what I've been able to figure out with the resources available online.

    The "world" zip is the default one that Nitrado generates, the files within it is different, so I don't know if I just need to get certain files into my saves or something, but the 2nd screenshot shows that comparison. Left file is "world" right is "wtf3" named because that is what I am constantly saying at this point lol. Thanks in advance, if I don't get the chance to thank you personally in a timely manner.

    I'm gonna try reinstalling Factorio, non-experimental and try again, but any advice would greatly be appreciated, whenever that reply comes, I'm sure it will help.

    Edit: Trying to load the default "World" save in my game says it's on version 18.38, even though the log files show the server is on 17.79.

    Hello, I am new to Factorio and server hosting. I am trying to get my mods working, I've transferred the zip files into the mod folder and even tried renaming it to take .zip off it as recommended in a wiki I read. They still will not launch, also I wanted to make sure my game started with no cliffs and modify the resources a bit. Can anyone help me with that as well?

    Issue #1 - Installing mods on my server

    Issue #2 - Configuring game setting options

    I'm trying to get mods going on my server, I believe I'm doing everything correctly, I've been trying to get this going for 2 days now, wiping my server (it's new anyway) and stopping the server, installing, verifying installation of mods in single player, add "AcitveMods=" into the GameUser.ini and nothing seems to work.

    Everytime I load the server, it's like vanilla, non-modded. I see on the mod page it says they will install, it looks like they do, so I load up the server when "This mod is installed automatically on the next server start." is gone. Then, when I get into the server and refresh my Nitrado server info, it brings back "This mod is installed automatically on the next server start."

    Anyone have any tips or words of wisdom? I'd really like to get this done properly, playing with my brother and friends and they are waiting on me to fix this. :(

    I'm new to hosting and all of this, my server suddenly came down and I cannot get it to restart. I tried doing a "Server Check" and it leads to

    Oops! An Error Occurred

    The server returned a "500 Internal Server Error".

    Something is broken. Please let us know what you were doing when this error occurred. We will fix it as soon as possible. Sorry for any inconvenience caused..

    I've told the server to restart, but it just loads endlessly it seems. Am I doing something wrong? Or is there an issue currently?
