When playing on a Satisfactory server, starting a world from scratch can be disorienting for server owners and players alike. Luckily, Satisfactory allows any admin to upload any singleplayer session, allowing the world to continue to function online. This is especially helpful when a world has several hours invested by the owner and friends. While there are many reasons to upload a world, performing server maintenance is extremely accessible through the game’s built-in server manager. Navigating through the server manager and knowing how to upload a Satisfactory world can be confusing for new players, so we have created this Apex Hosting guide to ease you through the steps.

Uploading a Singleplayer World

  1. Launch Satisfactory from your preferred game launcher.
  2. From the main menu, select the Server Manager option.
  3. In the top section, press Manage Saves, followed by Upload Save.

  4. Here, locate and select the singleplayer session and save that is desired.
  5. Finally, press the Upload Game button to begin uploading your save.

Common Issues

The world does not appear on the server:
Oftentimes, this occurs if the world is uploaded, but was not successfully loaded on the server. Before the world will appear, ensure you visit the Load Save section and select your uploaded session to load on the server. Once this is done, the server will load up your world, allowing it to be accessed by any player who joins the server.

Changing the world back:
In some circumstances, you may wish to change the server world back to the previous session. This can be beneficial if the incorrect world was uploaded or simply because you wish to switch it back. To achieve this, return to the Load Save tab, then find the session you wish to use. Select the session and the corresponding save file, then load it on the server to undo the world upload.
