​                                                                                                       
​NEVERWORLD GRID REGION SERVER SOFTWARE 0.9

HOW TO SET UP A REGION SERVER TO RUN YOUR OWN REGIONS ON OPENSIM                 DOWNLOAD AND UNZIP THE FILE “NEVERWORLD REGION SERVER”. BEFORE STARTING THE PROCESS, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE OPEN PORTS ON YOUR ROUTER. TO FIND OUT IF YOUR PORTS ARE OPEN,  USE THIS ONLINE PORT CHECKER SITE: HTTPS://PORTFORWARD.COM/HELP/PORTCHECK.HTM   IF YOU NEED TO OPEN YOUR PORTS, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS HERE:  HTTPS://WWW.OUTWORLDZ.COM/OUTWORLDZ_INSTALLER/MANUAL_TROUBLESHOOTING..HTM                                            IN THE OPENSIM SOFTWARE, FIND THE FOLDER CALLED “BIN”. IN IT WILL BE A FILE CALLED “OPENSIM.INI”.  IN THE OPENSIM INI FILE, YOU MUST CHANGE THE LISTENER PORT TO A UNIQUE PORT THAT IS DIFFERENT THAN THE PORT YOU WILL BE USING FOR YOUR REGION PORT.  USUALLY YOU SHOULD USE A PORT FOR THE LISTENER PORT LIKE “8050” AND REGION PORTS LIKE “9000” OR “9001”.  EACH REGION YOU CREATE WILL NEED ITS OWN OPENED PORT. YOU MAY NEED TO ALSO SET UP A NAT LOOPBACK CONNECTION ON YOUR MACHINE. INSTRUCTIONS ARE HERE: HTTPS://WWW.OUTWORLDZ.COM/OUTWORLDZ_INSTALLER/LOOPBACK.HTM WHEN YOU ARE DONE DOING ALL THIS, YOU CAN GET STARTED CREATING YOUR REGION. SUGGEST YOU FIRST GO INWORLD AND FIND AN EMPTY SPOT.  THE FIRESTORM VIEWER ALLOWS YOU TO SEE THE POSITIONS OF THE CURRENT REGIONS, SO PICK A PLACE NORTH OR SOUTH OF THERE.  NOW, SIMPLY FIND THE OPENSIM.EXE IN THE BIN FOLDER AND CLICK ON IT TO RUN IT. A CONSOLE SCREEN WILL COME UP AND WILL ASK QUESTIONS.  ANSWER THE QUESTIONS,  NAME OF THE NEW SIM, THE LOCATION (I.E. 10042X10042) THE PORT YOU WILL USE FOR THE REGION.  IT WILL ASK FOR THE ESTATE OF THE OWNER. AT THIS POINT MAKE YOUR ESTATE NAME UP. IF YOUR NAME, FOR INSTANCE, IS SIM DAILIE, YOU CAN NAME THE ESTATE DAILIE ESTATE.  IT WILL START TO CREATE THE REGION AND GIVE IT A UNIQUE UUID.   IT WILL THEN ASK FOR NAME OF THE ESTATE OWNER. THAT’S YOU. WHEN IT IS ALL DONE, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE YOUR NEW REGION ON THE MAKE AND TELEPORT THERE.  IF YOU CANNOT REACH THE REGION BUT IT SHOWS UP, YOU WIL HAVE TO RECHECK YOUR PORTS TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE OPENED, MAKE SURE YOU NAT LOOPBACK IS SET UP CORRECTLY (IF NEEDED) AND ALSO MAKE SURE THAT THE FIREWALL IS OPENED TO ALLOW THE OPENSIM SOFTWARE PROGRAM TO RUN.   I WANT TO NOTE THIS: AFTER CREATING A REGION IF YOU CANNOT STILL GET IN, PLEASE GO TO THE "BIN FOLDER" OF YOUR SERVER SOFTWARE, AND THEN TO THE "REGION" FOLDER. CLICK ON THE REGIONS.INI.  YOU MAY WANT TO CHANGE THE EXTERNAL IP ADDRESS FROM SYSTEMIP TO YOUR IP ADDRESS.  SEE EXAMPLE BELOW:  [MY PARADISE]   REGIONUUID = F15DEF6-AA47-4F85-92CA-5894E57DABB6 LOCATION = 9990,10039 SIZEX = 256 SIZEY = 256 SIZEZ = 256 INTERNALADDRESS = 0.0.0.0 INTERNALPORT = 9002 ALLOWALTERNATEPORTS = FALSE EXTERNALHOSTNAME = 2.912.96.100 MAPTILESTATICUUID = 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 NOT GOING TO LIE, PERSONALLY I HAVE HAD MORE PROBLEMS WITH MY FIREWALL AND PORTS THAN I CARE TO ADMIT. BUT ONCE YOU FIX THESE PROBLEMS, YOU CAN RUN YOUR OWN HOSTED REGIONS ENTIRELY FREE. SO WORTH THE TROUBLE!
