V Rising Server Setup and Config Guide

July 4, 2022

By: Robert N. Adams

 
 

This V Rising Server Setup and Config guide will tell you the basics of setting up a server and how you can change the rules of the game with ServerGameSettings.json.

How to Set Up a V Rising Server

You can set up a V Rising server by downloading the V Rising Dedicated Server in Steam tools and launching it. The server will run on your own PC, or you can set up a separate PC to run it. Alternatively, you can rent a server through a third-party service such as Survival Servers (affiliate).

 

How to Access Your V Rising Server Config Settings

A private V Rising server has an impressive number of settings to allow for customization. It has some presets that will adjust these options to fit a specific style of gameplay, but you can also individually customize each of these elements.

The game rules can be changed in ServerGameSettings.json; you can find this file in the following location if you're hosting a server yourself.

 
 

VRisingServer_Data\StreamingAssets\Settings

If you're using a third-party service to host your server, it may make a GUI available which allows you to change these settings.
