Raspberry Pi 4 – Windward Dedicated Server Setup and Performance


Save lives, stop wearing masks, stop social distancing, stop hiding from a virus which is less deadly than the stupid people telling you it is. You’re killing yourselves, you’re killing future generations by following snowflakes. Get educated.

Fight the enemy. Words don’t work, fight back.

Raspberry Pi 4 dedicated server playlist:

Installing and running a Windward dedicated server on a Raspberry Pi. Skip to the bottom for timestamps and resources. The server is incredibly easy to install; install mono, download server, extract server and run.

According to the documentation it should be that easy, but they forgot something! I tried following all the guides which got my server running, but when I joined I couldn’t start the world. Took me a while to figure out that you need to log in as an admin player first so you get can set world options. The video demonstrates the non-admin issue and the resolution, in case others have had this annoyance.

Server installation takes almost no time or configuration once ‘the problem’ is addressed. Server resources used are minimal throughout. They’re so low that every generation of the Pi should be able to run the server to some degree.

My Equipment / Prerequisites:
– Pi Model 4
— With 64GB class 10 SD card (U1)
— Using ethernet.
— I have the 4GB version
– I have a small fan on my Pi 4 which I took off my old Pi 3. There’s no mount so I just taped it on. it doesn’t make a big difference to core temp, but it’s better than nothing.
– Raspbian Buster with desktop (10/07/2019)

– Desktop PC
— i7-5820K, 16GB DDR4, NVIDIA 1060 6GB, mechanical drives.
— For installing Terraria and testing server.

– Copy of Windward
— To join the server once running.
