This guide will show you how to quickly find and join your Eco server.
Find Your Server By Name
Set Your Server Name
We highly recommend that you change the default name for your new Eco server, in order to make it easier to find in the game listings. You can do that directly on the Nodecraft control panel, by going to the "Game Settings" section of the control panel.
Enter your server name in the "Server Name" field, and then save the changes at the bottom of the screen.
Start up Eco
Start up the Eco game client, and wait for the main title screen to appear. Then click on the "New Game" option.
Click on the "Browse All" button
The "New Game" button opens up the "Recommended" server listings, which appear on several tabs. The game decides which servers appear in the "Recommended" listings, according to a set of criteria such as title, completeness of description, etc.
To see a full listing of servers, click on the "Browse All" button in the upper right corner. There you can search for servers by name.
Click on "Search" Icon
When the server listings appear, click on the small green "Search" icon (it looks like a magnifying glass), as highlighted in the screenshot below:
This will open a small search window in the center of the screen, and simply enter the name you chose for your server, and then click the green "Search" button.
Select Your Server, and Click "Join"
If successful, your server name will appear on the left side of the screen. Click on your server name. This will cause details about the server to appear on the right side of the screen, and in the bottom right corner, you will see a green "Join" button.
Once you click "Join", you will see information about the server maps being downloaded, and you will appear in game!
Join by IP Address
You can also find and join your server by using the IP address. Click on the "Your Worlds" option on the main title screen for the game.
When this following screen appears, click on the green button with the white plus sign on it, as shown in the screenshot below:
This button opens up a small window in the center of the screen, where you can enter the IP address and port number for a server directly. Then just click the "Join" button.
You can find the IP address for your Nodecraft server by looking on the "Overview" tab of your control panel.

Rejoining Your Server in the Future
Once you've actually played on a server, you can skip all of these steps, and simply click on the "Your Worlds" option of the main title screen. There you will see any servers you've played on recently listed. Simply click on one to select it, and then right side of the screen will fill in with details.
Then click the "Join" button to go to your server!
