How to upload your V Rising save files to a dedicated server

In this guide, we will show you how to upload game saves and world to a V Rising server.

Look for the world on your local V Rising game in the below folder

C:\Users\<replace with current user>\AppData\LocalLow\Stunlock Studios\VRising\Saves

V Rising Local Save data

In this folder there should currently only be one v1 (at this time) folder, which represents the current Persistence Version. If in the future there are breaking changes to the persistence/save format, there could be v2v3, et cetera.

Inside this (currently v1) folder lies the actual save folders for the local saves/sessions. Since the user does not name these session/save folders when starting/hosting a game via the game client, these folder names are random, in the GUID format. For example: db4b1c0e-2b7d-430a-87ef-4b6c09398dcf

Full path example:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Stunlock Studios\VRising\Saves\v1\db4b1c0e-2b7d-430a-87ef-4b6c09398dcf


To find the specific session you want to move, you can check the ServerHostSettings.json file inside each folder to see the session name that you specified in-game.

When you have located the session you want to transfer to a dedicated server it is recommended to backup the full folder in case something goes wrong with the transfer on first try, so you allways have the original still.

Method 1:

Drag and Drop V Rising saves when the file is less than 100MB

Look for the folder below on the game panel and simply drag and drop the files to the worlds folder


Compress your save world to a zipped folder and drag and drop to the server

Uncompress, then change the save name on the startup menu to be the same as the one uploaded.
