Hytale Wiki

The friends list is a list of players who have been friended by one person which allows players to join servers and adventure worlds that their friends are currently playing on.[1]

Technical information[]

When a world is joined using the server browser, Hytale uses Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) protocols to handle automatic port-forwarding when possible. If UPnP fails, then the game uses network address translation (NAT) punch-through to directly connect users through the internet without having to set up port-forwarding, regardless of what settings the players' routers have.[1]


During development
