If you’re a fan of the popular building and survival game Factorio, you may want to create a server for you and your friends to play on.
Setting up one can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. This guide from our gamers will walk you through the process of creating an offline Factorio server!
How to Set Up an Offline Factorio Server
First you must ensure that you have an account. All users connecting to regular Factorio servers must have an active account on Factorio.com.
Turning your server into offline mode enables guest access, which allows you to log in without a username and password.
Setting up an offline Factorio server is actually pretty straightforward. All you need to do is find the server-settings.json file in your FTP, then change the required user verification option to false.
After that, simply restart your server and you’ll be ready to start playing!
