How to show or hide your server from the public

Overview

As a freshly awakened vampire, the world of V Rising can be a dangerous place. Having some friends to help along the way can keep you alive, or give you some healthy competition. You can create your own clan, work with other vampires to build your castle, and take part in PvP battles. However, sometimes you want to just chill on your server by yourself or with a few friends. By default, your server will show up on the main server list in multiplayer for anyone to see. Changing your server’s visibility on the Master Server List is a great way to control if it can be found by the general public or just by the people you share the address with. In this guide, we will show you how to easily change your V Rising server’s visibility through the Apex Hosting control panel.

Changing Public Visibility

  1. Navigate to your Control Panel and login.
  2. Click on the Customizations tab on the left side of the page.

  3. Locate the List on the Master Server option.

  4. Check the box to allow your server to show up on the public list. Un-check it to hide the server.
  5. Restart the server for the changes to take effect

 

What Does the Master Server Option Do?

A server on the master list

When enabled, your server will appear on the main server list shown in the game. Players can find and attempt to join your server from the list. This makes it a lot easier for your players to find it, but if you don’t have a strong password anyone can join the server and may damage your progress.

Disabling the option removes your server from the in-game server list. Your players won’t be able to join the serverfrom the list, but they can use the Direct Connect option instead. This is more secure and will prevent anyone that doesn’t have the server’s address from being able to connect. Only your select group of players can join.

Common Issues

My server isn’t showing up in the multiplayer menu
The Public Server list doesn’t update immediately. It can take an hour or two for the server to show up on the list. If it still doesn’t appear, restart the server and try again.

Random people are joining the server
This most often happens when the server has a weak password. Even if the server isn’t on the public list, it is still possible to guess the address and login. Change your server’s password and restart it to prevent unwanted players from joining.

I keep getting a ‘Timed out’ error when I try to join
This most often happens when the server is offline or if your connection to the server is weak. Make sure the server is online in the control panel and try restarting your router. If you still can’t join after that, try contacting our support team to investigate further

Conclusion

Changing who can see your server is a great way to protect yourself and your players from other users. Controlling the visibility can ensure that only the people you want to have access to the server can find it. Fighting rival vampires or building up a clan can provide hours of play for you and your users. You can conquer the world and crush any rivals through PvP. Or you can make a private server and obsessively count random objects to your heart’s content. With the help of this guide, and the Apex Control Panel, you are ready to make your server public or private as you please.
