    I'm actually working on a how-to. It's pretty damn complicated and requires setting up SQL databases and servers, PHP + Apache, and dumping some PHP files to the htdocs from the repo. There's probably something I've missed out but it's actually working OK. Just a question, why don't you want people setting up servers? It's not like they can't create server emulators to make it easier, it is an open source project :pThat and the one that I'm setting up currently is personal-use only for testing of custom cities, custom content etc. Maybe one day when the player base grows I'll open it to the public but seeing as how there's only like 100-200 people, there's not much point.

    I don't want people setting up servers because it's fucking stupid.

    Not even for private testing? I mean, what if I were to try and make an rcon console for the server? I'd have to test that before I committed it otherwise it could open up a whole bunch of problems.

    That's different, obviously.

    Well that's the purpose of the server I was going for. Sure, maybe if your servers are completely filled, we'd need public servers - but right now there's no use.

    Just curious on this Custom Content thing, anything new on that? Are we able to add Custom Content? Or will that be something later on? Or not at all LOL :D

    For custom content to work, everyone on the server must have it. There's no special distribution of custom objects yet.

    The efforts in this pull request were implmented during development of Volcanic, but I had to do it differently to support patch iffs and carefully manage dynamic creation/deletion of objects. Afaik, there is no build where the VMServerDriver sends out the custom objects it has for dynamic loading on the client.

    Can i have permission to create a custom content server app, that does download custom content and allow people to host their own servers with custom objects??

    I have a file with custom contents created by Kingsware, if you want to use it for testing :D
