You can also host from your own machine.
You just need to forward the ports from the player.json in your router (same as for servers)
Then you should create a vmod or use one you have
Last step is to start to server via the last icon in the launcher. Wait till its started and if everything is done proper everyone can join. ;)

Multiplayer.json ;)

by default:
"Simulation Port":54297,
"Simulation Port#":"range is 1025 - 65535",
"HTTP Server Port":64297,
"HTTP Server Port#":"range is 1025 - 65535. Used for file sharing",

1. Open the ports in your Router

How to forward a port number in your router is different by brand. So you'll have to google your router.

192.168.0.107 = is my local IP from my game PC. It's dynamic IP by default so it might change if you reboot your PC, If you can't acces your server after a reboot. Change the IP in the router
I've set both ports the forward UDP and TCP. (Beide = Both in Dutch)

2. Firewall

First time you click on the Host button in the launcher. You'll be asked to open the firewall for the dedicated server program. If you click Cancel here ==> you'll need to open the firewall manually. :speechless:

The dedicated server program will open and you're able to set up a server...
If you have a Vmod. :D

3. Vmod

There are tools to make life more easy. But this is the original way to do it. :)

- Click 1-2-3

Vmod done :thumbsup:

4. Click on the Host button

- IMPORTANT: Network speed of the server = lower as your maximum upload speed.

It will take you 5 min to do... :)
