How To Host Your Own Custom Atlas MMO Server
Atlas supports private hosted dedicated servers which means you can set up a server on your PC in order to play on it. Hosting your own Atlas dedicated server is great because you can use Atlas cheats and other codes, modify the game and test new things or just play with a couple of friends or a small community if you don't want to get your buildings and ships stolen from other players. In this guide you'll learn how to host and run your own custom Atlas MMO dedicated private server on your PC and play on it.

Installing Atlas Server Files
In order to retrieve and install the Atlas dedicated Server files you will need to get SteamCMD (command prompt).
Installing SteamCMD is very simple, just download it from this LINK.
Once you have downloaded it, open SteamCMD and enter this code inside:
steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir C:\atlasserver +app_update 1006030 validate +exit
This command will download the whole game along the Atlas dedicated server files.
You can edit the "
C:\atlasserver"to your desired pathing in case you want to save the server files somewhere else on your HDD or SSD.
Atlas Private Server Configuration
After you have downloaded the required Atlas dedicated server files the next step is to configure the private Atlas server and this is done via a .batch file.
Inside pixarkserver\ folder where you downloaded the game files (from previous step), create a bat file, for example server.bat
Inside the server.bat file enter:
start /high C:\ATLAS\ShooterGame\Binaries\Win64\ShooterGameServer.exe Ocean?ServerX=0?ServerY=0?AltSaveDirectoryName=00?ServerAdminPassword=123?MaxPlayers=125?ReservedPlayerSlots=25?QueryPort=57561?Port=5761?SeamlessIP=188.8.131.52 -log -server -NoBattlEye
Note - change the Seamless IP to YOUR IP where you want to host the server.
You can create a .bat file very easily following these steps: make a new text document, paste the below code inside, click save as, choose you location and pick "All Types" as a file type and then change the name to server.bat and click save.
This long code is composed of a lot of parameters which you can adjust to your private dedicated server hosting needs, for example the ServerAdminPassword and Max Players. Don't forget to remember your ServerAdminPassword if you do change it.
The official server grid tool is also required, you can download it from this github rep: https://github.com/GrapeshotGames/ServerGridEditor (Just click download as .zip)
Unzip the files, open the tool and configure the things to fit your needs, for example you can change the server name by altering "friendly name" and dedicated server password by changing "Atlas password" box.
After you've done configuring the tool, save the ServerGrid.Json file in the subfolder "shootergame" of server folder from step one.
Running the Atlas Server
Run the server.bat file we configured before, it's that simple!
In case your server is not working correctly or isn't allowing you to connect, you will most probably need to port-forward because by default the server uses ports 7777 and 27015. If this does happen, make sure to allow these ports on your internet router configurations.
There are tones of detailed router port-forwarding tutorials on the internet, for those of you that played Minecraft and ran your own dedicated server, the port-forwarding process is the same.
If you have no idea how to access your router configurations, search windows for "command prompt", open it and write ipconfig and press enter. The Default Gateway or IPv4 is most probably going to be your router config path. Just copy that IP adress and paste it into your internet browser, login into the router and you can alter things there.
Useful Atlas Server Cheat Codes
Write these in the console (usually opened by the tilde key)
enablecheats <password> -> Enables cheats
god -> Enables God mode
cheat gfi PrimalItemResource_Metal_Cobalt 1 0 0 ->this will give you 1 Cobalt.
To find all the other names of items, just go to your Atlas install directory: \steamapps\common\ATLAS\ShooterGame\Content\Atlas\AtlasCoreBP\Items
The item names are all in The "Items" Directory, just copy paste the names in the format mentioned above and you'll spawn the desired items or resources.
