A True Gamer here and I need help optimising my Garry’s mod sandbox server so I can get more players on. The problem is I just seem to see not Much people joining or staying on for too long.
Let’s say… I get around 2 to 3 people joining every so often but most of them are my friends on steam. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong it’s not private, its in the list and the ports are forwarded so people can join my server.
Here is a bit of info about my server please do not take this as advertising I’m not going show the ip or name.
Ok so I roughly get 5 people on every 3 hours at a time.
It’s home hosted and I have a pretty good internet connection so not much lag unless say… Your in America then your ping would get to about to 200 to 300 if there is a lot of props on the game.
Sometimes it crashes because some people like to spam a whole lot of props, those mingebags.
Anyway I need help getting my server populated and get more traffic
I have a pretty decent protection addon (FPP) and decent rules like,
Don’t spam and don’t use offensive words, and all those other basic rules for Garry’s mod sandbox.
I just don’t know why people don’t join my server., As well I see, when I have say like 9 people on that’s like pretty rare, but I see that more people join. I see how people like joining populated servers.
I have pretty fun addons as well.
Five nights at freddy’s one and two npc’s. Please don’t make fun of the fact that I have five nights at Freddy’s mods on my server.
Some useful tools. Example, stacker and wiremod.
I have a community group on steam for the server.
Ok… One more thing ok so one of my friends on steam, five nights told me that I need my server on the top of the list to get a good amount of people on. My server is in the list but I don’t know where for other people. on my list when I try to join its at the top of the list, obviously because I’m hosting it.
The server is hosted in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia,
So can you guys please reply how I can make my server great to join and and a enjoyable experience, and also how I can get it at the top of the list for other people.
Hope you guys reply and help me out.
Sorry if I’m advertising anything, I apologise if I did.
