Where do I find the STEAM-64-ID?

To manage your servers as an admin, you usually need your STEAM-64-ID. You can find the ID for example on this page http://steamid.co/. There you simply enter your STEAM name and your ID will be shown.

How to install mods on your server

First, we have to create a file called modconfig.lua

  • Create a file called modconfig and save it as .lua
  • The following lines have to be pasted into the file

Replace STEAMWORKSHOPID with the number you can find in the link of the object.

modLocation = ""
forceEnabling = false
mods =
     {workshopid = "STEAMWORKSHOPID1"},
     {workshopid = "STEAMWORKSHOPID2"},

As an example: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2362565341

  • Connect to your server, using the FTP Connection
  • Paste the modconfig.lua in your galaxy folder: /galaxies/yourgalaxyname
  • Start the server and the mod is downloading directly
  • Once you connect to your server, your gameclient will download the mod aswell
  • Have much fun with your new mod 🙂
