Mods Create Empty Lobby

Create Empty Lobby

Download Create Empty Lobby


This little mod allows you to conveniently create a contractless lobby directly from the main menu. The new lobby is made friends-only by default to prevent random players from joining and hogging up slots while the contract is decided upon / other settings are adjusted, or before your friends have a chance to join. When you are satisfied with your settings, you can change the lobby's permission to Public if you wish to host a public game (although this mod is primarily intended for players who host friends-only games, or mod developers who need quick access to a lobby for testing purposes).


With Fast.Net installed


Installation of the mod is straightforward - simply install the mod the same way as any other BLT mod. No configuration is necessary.
