Create and Edit Configuration Files for Satisfactory

Create the Configuration Files

To create the Satisfactory configuration files on the server so you can edit them, you'll need to run a command in the game console.

  1. Connect to your server for the first time and claim it as an admin. (Make sure to do this before letting anyone else on your server, or else they can claim admin on your server.)

  2. Go the the Server Manager and click on your server.

Common Configuration Changes

Below are common changes that are made on Satisfactory dedicated servers:

MaxPlayers

If you would like to change the maximum number of players on your server from the default of 4, you will want to edit the Game.ini file and add the following, where X = the number of players:

[/Script/Engine.GameSession]
MaxPlayers=X

Connection Timeouts

To change the connection timeouts from 20 seconds to 60 seconds to make it a bit easier for your players to connect (since slower computers take longer), you'll edit the Engine.ini file and add the following directly under [/Script/OnlineSubsystemUtils.IpNetDriver] :

InitialConnectTimeout=60.0
ConnectionTimeout=60.0
