Unitystation typically only takes a few moments to download and start playing. If you are having trouble or are confused this guide should help clear things up.

The Stationhub

Unitystation the game is launched through a launcher called the Stationhub. When downloading you will be installing the Stationhub, this launcher allows you to see a list of all the public servers and download the builds or forks they are using from there and join them. The Stationhub is also a good way to keep track of Unitystation news under the "News" tab.

Downloading through the Unitystation Website

https://www.unitystation.org/

The first way to download Unitystation is through the website (linked above). Clicking the download button on the homepage will automatically read which operating system you are using and start to install the correct version of it.

Steps for Windows

After clicking download from the website a zipped folder should begin to install.

Once the folder is finished downloading you will want to open it up and extract it to wherever you want the files to be kept.

After that you should be done installing the Stationhub, I recommend making a shortcut and moving it to wherever you keep your games for easier access.

Double-click the StationHub.exe and it will open.

A brief overview of current servers:

Wild Frontier FFA Station: Free for All server that hasn't been played or updated in years, it uses a very outdated build.

Unitystation - Playtest EU and USA: These are the staging builds that use the most recent builds and are for testing, they are the ones played on during weekly playtests.

White Dream - Main: This is a Russian server that uses the staging builds.


Overview of the tabs on top:

Installations: A list of all of the builds you have installed and allows you to delete them or launch from them directly.

Preferences: This lets you change the installation path you have set for the different builds.

Then you should simply press character, and create a new character if you need help use the Character Creation Guide.
