Running A Successful ATLAS Server
Here are a few key points when running an ATLAS server
Plan ahead! We recommended hosting a server that has the ability to scale with your community and uses top-notch equipment.
Establish Server Rules
A successful ATLAS server will always have a set of rules for players to follow which should be enforced at all times.
There's nothing like an awesome server event to get everyone together in one location to have a fun evening.
The most important feature a server can have. Admins should be non-playing characters that are on standby to help players who have issues and enforce server rules. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that admins should NOT be a playable character. This prevents players from claiming " Admin Abuse ".
Majority of the top ATLAS servers listen to their community members. This could be in the form of voting for server mods, events or when the right time to do a server wipe should be.
This can be a bit tricky as each player tends to like certain play styles. You should plan ahead and keep the settings the same once you have established a good player base. Do not change these settings without community consent.
Choose a location that benefits everyone. Many new owners tend to host servers nearest to them when in reality players from all over the country may be part of your community. We recommend a central location if available.
With over 104,866 members, we're the largest ATLAS ranking site in the world. We provide a free service which allows server owners to promote their server and establish an active playerbase for FREE.
If you choose to use mods, we recommend limiting the amount you install and use ones that have an active mod creator. It's important to the mods before you install them! Not all mods are compatible and there is nothing more annoying than a server crash due to an outdated mod or a mod related issues.
