I was hoping I could host a dedicated server (that I didn't have to pay for) A lot of tutorials are outdated and I can't find any that work is it even possible to host a dedicated server through a batch file or shortcut and portforwarding? Please let me know!

It's super easy.  It's just like- copy the blockland shortcut, right click the copy, go to properties, and add -dedicated to the end of the target.

I'm not at my computer atm, can someone post a picture or a gif or something?

A. You must have non-steam blockland to host dedicated and play normally
B. You need to have your computer on to keep the server running
C. You need to have the port forwarded or use UPnP

Before blockland came with a dedicated shortcut, I'll go boot my laptop and test it real quick

you might want to put url tags around that so it catches the . at the end

use setKey("<BL key here>");
so if your key is
ABCDE-FGHI-JKLM-NOPQ
type
setKey("ABCDE-FGHI-JKLM-NOPQ");
in the console

edit: also, instead of running it through cmd, you can just make a text file with the command (Blockland.exe ptlaaxobimwroe -dedicated) in it, and rename it to dedicated.bat
that way it's easier to run each time (just double click the .bat file)

If you guys did not realize his profile is a steam key. Yea unfortunately badspot made no support for steam users to host a dedicated server. Steam users do not have a key. Buying from the site will give you a key you can host with.

pretty sure you can host off a steam version somehow, not sure though
the steamAPI check fails for some reason

edit: launching BL through steam still works, just can't launch my steam BL with a .bat file

edit: you can edit your steam BL launch options
adding -dedicated to the launch options makes it launch the dedicated server
(steam library>right click blockland>properties>set launch options>type -dedicated into the box)
