World Swapping on Dedicated Server


Recommended Posts

Spoiler

***DISCLAIMER! THIS INFO IS FOR EDUCATIONAL REASONS ONLY. NOBODY IS RESPONSIBLE BUT YOU FOR ANY DATA LOSS DURING THE WORLD SWAPPING.***

Requirements:
1) A working dedicated server.

2) Not smooth brain (or just watch this guide :D)
 

Steps to do so:
1) ALWAYS backup your server (you know, just to have a return point, like in Windows recovery). Just get to C:\Users\<your username>\Documents\Klei\DontStarveTogether(...BetaBranch if server is on Beta) And just do Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V on any cluster you'd like.

2) Go to your main cluster, then create a folder where your secondary caves (or second forest world) will be. I'm used to name it "CavesSecondary", but basically any name will do.

3) Copy server.ini and modoverrides.lua (if you have any mods on the server) to your secondary cluster.

If you want a second forest, you copy leveldataoverride.lua from Master folder of your cluster (or you can create your own by using the client world generating menu. Also editable in Notepad++. If you want to have second caves, you copy worldgenoverride.lua from your caves folder.

EDIT: DO NOT TYPE c_regeneratedhard() in your client console or you will lose your progress.
