Satisfactory | How to Change the Starting Area of Your Satisfactory Server

When you first add a server to your Server Manager you can select your starting area in the Create Game tab.

The following are the Four Starting Areas you can choose from;

a. Grass Fields
Ideal for first-time pioneers
The first viable building location FICSIT had found, standing out because of its open and relatively flat fields. Considering the distances between mining locations, building outposts and/or large transportation lines may be necessary eventually.

b. Rocky Desert
Suitable for first-time pioneers
The textbook example of a FICSIT-approved building location, with balanced resources, space, and distances. Additionally, it is very close to the sea, making water an easy commodity.

c. Northern Forest
Good for more experienced pioneers
A lush building location with many height differences and a few open areas, challenging conventional building and planning methods. Despite these challenges, it caught our eye due to the richness of its resources.

d. Dune Desert
Recommended for advanced pioneers
Initially considered too risky, further investigation has convinced us that this area is viable for building with its large, open spaces and plentiful mining locations. Foliage and water locations are rare and contained, making initial power set-ups challenging.

Once you have selected your starting area, enter a session name and press create game.

If you have any other questions, you can submit a ticket on our Discord or create a Billing Ticket.
