    Requirements:
    A PC/VPS, running either Windows 10 or Windows Server 2019.
    The ability to port forward
    A Plutonium forum account
    Notepad++/Any other code editor

    In this tutorial, I will assume that you have installed T4 to C:\T4 already.

    1. Preparation

    1. Download the Plutonium Launcher
    2. Download the Updater.bat [Do a CTRL+S on the page that opens]
    3. Download the Start.bat
    4. Download the Server.cfg file and move it to the main folder.

    5. Save/Move all files to C:\T4

    1.2 Creating a server key
    0. Set the server name you want in your server.cfg file.

    1. Open the Plutonium Server Key page.
    2. Fill in the name of the server and select the correct game.
    3. Click on create, then copy the server key.
    4. Paste the key into the Start.bat file under set key=xxxx, replace xxxx with your key.

    2. Basic configuration and the first start
    Edit your Server.cfg file with whatever changes you want (i.e. RCON Password/Map Rotation/Round Limits/etc/etc).

    Launching the Server:
    Double click the bat file.
    Wait for the server to finish loading.

    4. (Optional) Install a server management tool

    5. (Optional) Hosting a second server
    Make a copy of the Start.bat file and the Server.cfg file and rename them.
    Edit the Server.cfg to have a new hostname, and grab a key for it.
    Edit the copy of the bat file to have a different port/your new key and to use your second cfg.
    (You must forward the second port as well)
    Start the server through the new .bat file.

    FAQ
    Q: Why can't I find my server hosted at home while others can?
    A: Your router probably doesn't support NAT-Loopback (aka. NAT-Reflection) and that's why it doesn't know how to forward the network traffic. In order to connect it use your internal IP or 127.0.0.1 if its hosted on the same machine.
