Single player to multiplayer

Post by yyz342 » Mon Oct 31, 2016 12:57 am

I have been playing FS2017 since the release building up equipment, crops inventory and funds. Is it possible to transfer the saved game from single player to the multiplayer dedicated server, as to be able to continue playing on the dedicated server from where I left off from single player game?
Thanks in advance.
Cheers

how: i assume you just copy the save you want into the dedicated server folder ? and in the server menu you select your save.

I don't know if this applies to a dedicated server.. but i started a game, played for a few days, then went into multiplayer and loaded that save game, and hosted a multiplayer session.

Thank you every one! I imported single player saved game zipped folder to the server via console and that was as easy as that. It worked.

I can confirm porting a single player to multiplayer does work.
I had an evening of play in my single player, including some missions for other fields (a feature that doesnt work in MP)
I was able to browse to my saved game in "MyDocuments" / My Games / FarmingSimulator2017
the into the "Savegame#" directory for which slot i wanted to export.
I selected all the files in the savegame folder and did "Send to Zip"
then from the dedicated server admin i did an upload of that zip file.

Everything worked great.
