How to download a save from a Sons of the Forest Server

 Sons of the Forest adds many innovative features, including a fully custom building system that allows players to build their own structures. This massive improvement over the first game's prebuilt structures means the building has more potential than ever. Some players may want to continue creating from their dedicated server save locally. However, it's worth noting that mainly structure data will be retained when transferring saves.

Note Make backups locally to save any necessary files.

Note Saves from Dedicated Servers can only be played in local Multiplayer.
