So, I got Wurm Unlimited during the Steam Winter Sale last month, and it was everything I was hoping it would be!
The issue is that installing a Linux server SUCKED. The docs were bad at worst, and recommended bad things to have it run in the background. Also, it was missing key information -- things like "what do the kingdom numbers mean" and "I need a 'gamedir' blank file in the directory for the server files?"
Sooo. I'm a DevOps (Development Operations) Engineer by trade, so I decided to do what I know best: automate all the things!
Today, I released the v0.1.0 beta release of Wurm Unlimited Friendly Linux Server Installer
What it does:
* Asks you for how you want the server configured
* Ensures that you put in good values
* Tries to give best guesses at things as the default values (server IP, for example)
* Provides a friendly, easy-to-use user interface for the install (99% of the people who use it won't have to type in the console past pasting the install command in)
And here's the link:
Scroll down to the README output to see how to install.
Hope everybody likes, and feedback is always appreciated.
Here's some pictures of the installer:
Set the bind address (server IP)
Set Admin Password
Set Server Type (Creative/Adventure) -- If the Home Kingdom only works on a single server type, it auto selects the server type for you.
