Connect your Gameserver
One of the first things to do is to connect your gameserver with VyHub.
Each gameserver is organised in a serverbundle.
All servers within a serverbundle are from the same type (e.g. GMOD, Minecraft, Discord)
- (optional) Navigate to the
Serversettings and create your serverbundle.
We are going to choose the default group for new users in this bundle later.
- Now it's time to connect your server, which is done in the same settings menu.
Follow the displayed instructions.
- Install the fitting gameserver addon to your server. You can find it on this page in the "Game Integrations" section. (For example Garry's Mod or Minecraft)
You can now create all the user groups that you want.
Memberships in a user group are scoped to a serverbundle.
- Navigate to the
Groupsettings and create your group.
- The permission level is used to decide which users can be targeted by a member of the group
- e.g. A user with permission level 42 can't target another user with the level of 99.
- Now edit the created group, switch to the
Propertiestab and choose all needed properties.
- At the
Mappingstab, you can map the VyHub group to an in-game group.
- Go back to the
Servertab, edit your serverbundle and choose a created group as default group.
Payment gateways (e.g. Paypal, Stripe) available for your customers can be added in the
Payment Gateway settings.
You need to provide the VyHub instance with the payment providers secrets. These secrets can be obtained directly from the payment provider after creating an account with them.
