  • Hot-fixed an issue preventing clients from joining servers. This issue is caused by servers running a very large number of mods. This issue prevents clients from joining servers by not counting mod dependencies toward the listed mod count. We have created a fix address this issue on heavily modded servers. If you have this issue, please take the following steps.

    1) Make a mod on the workshop. This can be an empty mod with no function.
    2) Add all (or part) of your server mod list as dependencies to this mod.
    3) Use this mod on your DS in place of the mods you added as dependencies.

    Players will not be able to use the advanced mod filter and will not see what mods your server needs in server details. They will, however, be able to join.
    If you still have this issue even after taking the above steps, check that your server description is not too long. Server descriptions should be 200 characters or less. We may add this limit to the server description field in the future.

No, it is against MS policy.


Microsoft doesn't really allow that


US 1. Server. Has been down. For two days. Please fix so I can recover my stuff On my Xbox and

Play the game. This is ridiculous. Can't even access the game online Through your Servers.


IF you can, will you guys ever consider raising the PCU for the XBOX One X players to 500,000 and the Series X and S to 1,000,000 this game is too awsome to just have 200,000 PCU, I'm an XBOX One X player I'm trying to find a Series X or S but it's just way too hard to find one, this is why I'm asking, I hope you guys will but, if not it's still an awsome game anyway.


If you have a one X, dont get a one S. There's literally no difference
