    I was wondering if Oxide for The Forest would be possible. The game runs off of Unity but there aren't any dedicated servers yet, only self-hosted ones.

    I enjoyed playing the game yesterday and saw how much potential it actually has.

    So yeah, possible?

    Cheers,

    Why not? :)
    But it is not so simple)

    I already started on it a couple months ago, but without a dedicated server or logging, it's pretty much pointless and a pain to work with.

    Yeah I see that when I look at the oxidecore code for Rust etc... Doesn't exactly look easy. Also I don't think The Forest has chat implemented yet which would make commands difficult.

    The Forest is very early alpha, so I think it is too early to make mods)

    Would it be possible in the future when things such as dedicated servers and logging are available?

    It's possible now, but I'm not going to try dealing with a listen server and lack of logging.

    Yeah, I agree. I guess we need to wait for a lot more to be implemented.

    Despite the lack of dedicated server, we've managed to add a console for this game and initial Oxide support is in the works!

    I see a release. A plugin for seeing a playerlist and the ability to kick/ban would be awesome

    It doesn't really have any hooks yet aside from the core hooks. I'll open a requests section once it has any real hooks.

    For those that haven't noticed, we have complete dedicated server spawning for this now. Also managed to raise the player count, remove the username from the hostname, and more. Still working on some performance issues though, as the server seems to have a few errors due to no GPU being available.

    The downloads are on Bintray where the other builds are, but it's not updated and will not work right now. An example .bat is also included.

    Not really a reason to update right now as it isn't usable.
