    Server List:
    Here is a list of servers, along with any links to a schedule or when they were last opened, in no specific order.
    This list is regularly updated as soon as a server is opened for the first time.
    These are sorted by order of activity.
    List is being re-written! :)
    If you want your server to be added then please comment below and I would be happy to add it to the list. This list may become more dynamic in the future (i.e. an actual server tracker written in PHP) but I don't think it's top priority right now ;)

    Guides:
    When creating a server

    Please include the following guidelines to help people connect and enjoy your server:
    1. Specify a build by Servo, as well as a branch - for example, at the time of writing this post, the latest build on the Master branch is build #98.
    2. Specify rules for the community to follow when using your server.
    3. Try to use only official builds unless there are more stable builds or you have created a nifty build yourself.
    4. Try and use Charvatia on a stable, clean environment where possible. If you aren't using Charvatia or Xanadu, use the client with nothing else using your network to ensure that no connections are promptly cut off.
    5. Using a VPS can, in the long run, be extremely beneficial and - if there is a strong connection - improve gameplay and reduce lag.
    To create a server
    Check out this thread, written by yours truly.
    To join a server (and install FreeSO)
    Check out this thread, courtesy of Nahuel3d, or this post by Tori Sim.
    To get the latest build (in-depth rendition of Nahuel3d's guide - step 4)
    Check out this thread, written by me a while back. If you've read Tori Sim's guide, you probably won't be needing this.
    Please note
    that not all servers are online and ready to play 24/7 - this is because the client attempts to catch up by getting all of the packets used by the server since start up, which takes up to 5 minutes if the server has been up for half an hour! This means that if a server does not work for you it is using a different build or is offline. There's nothing you or I can do about it being offline, so please do not reply to this thread screaming to me about none of the servers working. Thanks.

    Maybe add schedule times, or those users can confirm us they regular times to be connected ,that way is easiest to know when to join...

    There aren't really any consistently-scheduled servers unless I've missed some out. If I have I will add a schedule link where applicable.

    I haven't been able to do anything daily for a while since I've been busy. But I do announce in advance and post the event up on the calendar I do have something planned.

    Maybe adding the time zone from the owner so people won't get confused? ;) (Hey it's 7pm here and your server still not up' and so)

    OKAY?! So could you please give me any kind of timeframe or estimation for when I will be able to use even a single one of them?

    Yeah sorry, forget to mention there not up 24/7....you have to ask someone else to host or you can try hosting yourself using Tunngle or Hamachi and a quick setup on noip.com LetsRaceBwoi usually posts soomething the day he decides to host a server again, usually at 7pm British Standard Time, which you can easily google the current time in Britain by the phrase "what time is it bst", that's how I find out when his is online. :)
