Local factorio server (LAN) Win10

Hello
I have tried most of the ideas in this forum about a dedicated factorio server, but with no good results.

This is what i would like to do:

1. Factorio server (headless) on a win10 machine, in this case a laptop.
2. Headless server in my appartment only, no need for external access.
3. Server is running even when i quit the game, possible.?
4. Continue a save game from my singelgame.
5. All of my mods loaded.
6. Is this possible to do, all of the above on win10?

Think this is it.

Hi,

You should get all the answers from this wiki page
  1. It shouldn't matter which version of windows you are running,
  2. Copy your current factorio folder to the laptop, using the same folder structure
  3. If you have ever set up a game to run in a non-default folder with mods and saves in that folder, just setup the same on the laptop,
    • In case you didn't set up a game to be non-default:
    • download a .zip copy of the game and install it to a folder (Say C:\Factorio_0.17)
    • From

      Code: Select all

       %appdata%\factorio
      folder copy the mods,config & saves folders
      maybe you just want the save you want to run to be in the saves folder - your choice - so just delete the others
    • Run the server as per the instructions in https://wiki.factorio.com/Multiplayer#D ... ess_server
This should get you started - post here on your success or if you have more questions :geek:

Edit: you can run the server from the same using those instructions as well

Thanks for the tip, i will try that out.

./bin/x64/factorio --start-server ./saves/my-save.zip # This starts a server that will host the file created on the previous line <--- is this done by a .batfile or from the commandline in the game?
