Server Browser

From Eco - English Wiki
(Redirected from Server browser)

The Server Browser is the GUI used to filter and search a list of Eco servers to join.

An improved Server Browser was introduced in Eco Beta release 7. Clicking "New Game" in the main menu will bring it up. The browser allows players to select between several types of worlds. These are:

  • New Beginnings — Fresh worlds with new players and lower collaboration
  • Cities Upon a Hill — Older worlds with established cities
  • Brave Frontiers — Worlds with experienced players and higher collaboration
  • Strange Worlds — Modded worlds

Players can also choose to host private worlds, though it is not recommended, especially for new players.

Tips for Server Admins[edit | edit source]

In addition to the criteria listed above, server owners can boost their match score in the server browser by taking the following actions:

  • Having a server admin online
  • Adding a server description (the DetailedDescription field in the server UI)
  • Setting a Timetable for preferred play times
