Starts an external RL server for you + friends


DESCRIPTION

This Plugin was designed to eliminate the need for someone to host when playing on the same network. No more need for Hamachi when playing workshop maps!

Once you select your map and all your mutators, simple click "Request Server". Then a bot automatically hosts the game and provides you with a joinable IP Address under "Join a local game". Share this IP with your friends for them to join the match!

Rocket Host uses the maps stored in your "Mods" folder, so make sure to transfer any workshop maps you want to play into there. Also, here is a quick and easy map downloader application. http://rocketleaguemaps.us/

All players still need to have the same maps and the texture packs downloaded.

There are only a limited number of servers available as it costs money to keep them running. Currently running US-East. However, if you would like to support this Plugin and have more regions to choose from, feel free to support me on my Patreon! http://www.patreon.com/wcw

If you're looking for more people to play with, check out Community Workshop Games. This discord was created to find like-minded players with an interest in workshop maps. https://discord.gg/KVgmf9JFpZ
