Earth Economy Multiplayer Map HELP

Hello, first post here, long time player. For some time Ive been wanting to set up a multiplayer map but need help with some topics I don't even know how to start addressing, so I thought I would ask the forum.

Need help with:
- Setting up a dedicated server (paid/rented, I don't own a computer to host the server 24/7) that will list the game in the public games list.
- Scripting to allow players to select their spawn point based on a list of available options.

The idea is to have a big map with Earth shape (but flat), where players spawn in their chosen cities and build their factories there. Although small patches of ore will be distributed around the map to allow simple bases to spawn, large and dense patches of ore will only be available at specific areas (for example, middle east will have TONS of oil). Players will then have to create distribution networks around the world to get resources where they are needed, or to be processed and distributed further.

I already have the Earth map, although the large patches of ore are not set yet.

Need help with (part II):
I would like this map to be online 24/7 and accessible to people with low ping. I have neither a computer available to run the server 24/7 nor a good internet connection, so hosting it myself is not an option. I'm happy to pay for a rented server, problem is that I've been reading about it and the more I read the less I understand. I have no idea how to set it up and it all looks like a black hole to me, so I would need help from someone that knows how to set up a server to teach me.
-Map code:
I would like players to spawn wherever they choose from a list of cities, so players can choose to set a factory in their IRL city if that is what they want. So upon joining the game, a choose your spawning point list should appear.

Future steps:
If this idea turns to work out and people like it, another step forward would be to separate players by "teams" based on their chosen country, each team having their own tech tree.

If you are interested on playing this idea of a map and/or can help make it real please drop a line, this will also help to know how many people are interested to play. I will set up a discord channel if there is interest!

Thank you for reading!

Hello =)

are you still looking for help? This project sounds interesting. I already had a server runing for myself and my brother. But we stoped playing a while ago. I can setup the server and probably help with the moding required. I work as a software developer.

If you are still into this project let me know. I am eager to see your current progress, the map and maybe more details. I would be glad to meet you in voice chat to discuss the details.
