I am exploring setting up an Insurgency: Sandstorm server. I played the original Insurgency a little bit while it was in development. I loved the way the game handled but hated the AI. More recently I picked it back up and my brother told me to get Sandstorm. I've enjoyed it, even the online modes.
Work is coming along on a sandstorm server. I used an amalgam of the guides
above along with some bits & pieces that I discovered doing different searches
based on issues I found. One of the biggest was getting the
ModDownloadTravelTo flag to work. I had to put it after the
-Mod flag and
- in order for it to work. Just to have a "canary" of sorts, I
launch the server with a placeholder map and then have ModDownloadTravelTo set
to a different map so that if I see the placeholder map running, I know the
server hasn't finished loading yet. Another trick I had to figure out on my
own was how to get the Mod.io ID for different map mods. At least one article,
howto, or forum post said that the ID is posted on the mod.io page but I never
found it there, I had to deduce it from the download URL. Once I got the IDs
for the handful of map mods I wanted, I was able to get them to download and
Right now the server is password protected & not really advertised while I work out a couple more kinks. Once things are settled it will go live and I'll update this page with details. I would like to be able to have server status banners for my servers but it seems that's not really a thing any more these days. That's too bad as it'd make it real simple to see the status of the server from here. Maybe I can put something together.
