Are you wondering if you can pause your Palworld server? You’re not alone in this. Let’s talk about what you can do in Palworld when you need a break or when nobody’s playing on your server.
Can You Actually Pause in Palworld?
The short answer is, no, you can’t pause Palworld like you might pause a regular video game. Even if you open up the main menu, where you see all your stuff like inventory, party members, and options, the game keeps going. Your character will keep doing its idle movements, and everything in the game world keeps moving and happening. This means other players or creatures can still interact with your character.
What’s the Closest Thing to Pausing?
So, what do you do if you need a break or want to stop the server when no one is playing? The best way to sort of ‘pause’ in Palworld is by returning to the lobby. Here’s what this means:
- When you choose the option to “Return to Title,” your character leaves the game world. Think of it like stepping out of the game for a bit.
- Good news! When you do this, your game automatically saves. So, you won’t lose your progress.
- Ready to play again? Just head back to your server. When you come back, you’ll start off right where you left.
Why Can’t You Just Pause?
Palworld is designed to be a continuous, living world. This means that the game keeps going, even if you’re not actively playing. It’s part of what makes Palworld interesting – the world is always alive.
What About Server Management?
If you’re running a Palworld server and worried about it running non-stop, even when no players are connected, you might be looking for ways to manage this. As of now, there’s no built-in feature in Palworld to automatically pause the server when it’s empty.
