Dedicated Server Instructions:

The server files are located in Minimalist/Dedicated Server/WindowsNoEditor

Go to Binaries/Win64. Inside the folder there should be the server file and a shortcut to it. It is recommended to delete that shortcut and create a new shortcut of the original server files. 

After creating the shortcut, right click and press properties. In the target section, add "-log" (without the quotes) and you should be set. Exit out of properties and click on the shortcut.

The server will start running. It should display the IP address of the server. To connect in game, press on Multiplayer, Direct Connect, and enter the IP address of the server.
