    Not sure if anyone else is playing this but a few of us are giving it a go.

    From the below guide, it looks like the server files are available via SteamCMD?

    Option #2: Creating a Citadel Server From Your Home Computer or Dedicated Server
    Server Requirements

    Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Server 2008, Server 2012 & 64-Bit

    Quad Core processor (requires up to 2 full cores)

    Up to 16GB memory (currently uses around 6GB memory minimum and up to 15GB of memory for a full server)

    2GB disk space (install folder)

    Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015

    Step 1: Fetching Game Server files from SteamCMD
    The best method to get game server dedicated hosting files is via SteamCMD.

    1. Create a folder where you wish to store your Citadel: Forged With Fire game server hosting files
    2. Inside of the folder, place the newly downloading SteamCMD.exe file
    3. Create a batch file named SteamCMD.bat
    4. Place the following code in this batch file:
    @echo off
    start "" steamcmd.exe +login anonymous +force_install_dir "C:\Some\Path\Where\You\Want\Game\Server\Files\To\Go" +app_update 489650 validate +quit
    1. Right-click SteamCMD.bat and Run as Administrator
    2. Your game server files should be completely downloaded by now
    Step 1 (alternate method): Locating Game Server Files on Hard Drive
    You can host Citadel: Forged With Fire directly from the game itself. If you want to change any settings, locate your common folder:

    1. Right-click Citadel: Forged With Fire from Steam, select Properties
    2. Click Local Files tab
    3. Click 'Browse Local Files button
    Step 2: Setting up a Citadel: Forged With Fire Dedicated Server
    1. Create a batch file named CitadelServer.bat in your newly created SteamCMD folder (Step 1) or your Steam common folder (Step 1: (alternate method)).
    2. Place the following code in this batch file:
    start "C:\citadelserver\Citadel\Binaries\Win64\CitadelServer.exe" -nosteamclient -game -server -log
    1. More information will be coming on July 26 as server files are released
    Step 3: Port Forwarding
    Add an incoming rule to your Windows Firewall to allow UDP port 27015 as well as 27016 (or whichever port you are using).

    You may additionally need to add a forwarding rule to your network router. You can use PortForward.com to read how to do this.
