Decided to run a Rust Dedicated Server? The installation and set-up for the Rust Dedicated Server is very easy and straightforward. This guide is for the installation of a server on a Windows PC. For Linux, please check out our How to host a Rust server in Linux guide. The Rust server can be taxing on your host but maybe not as much as you would think. As a baseline a 3 square km default gen size map freshly generated will run at close to 2 gigabytes of ram. So I would suggest having at least 7 gigs allocated per server.

Setting Up Your Server
Dedicated servers in Space Engineers allow players to connect to a third party host, rather than using a player-host, in a peer-to-peer set-up. They are game instances intended for long time multiplayer games. This will result to a faster connection and a more fluent multiplayer performance with less lag.
For scripts that you can run on your own dedicated server, see Dedicated server scripts. The server has been tested on Ubuntu Memory requirements increase as the number of connected players increases.
