When i trying to host any game at any piece of map, i'm shown in friends menu as just exploring, and not shown, like playing in game.https://imgur.com/a/4imyZEu

if other ppl hosting-they have satisafctory icon, and i can easily join.

reinstalled client, epic laucher, even windows. tried on 3 PC's

hamachi, even tunngle

windows 7x64, win 10 x64

no antivirus, got "white ip", firewall off, tried all NAT settings.

tried in experimental and usual. Enabled DMZ on router

ofc i used administrator rights.

tried with 2 accounts with game on em

and every time i host, ppl got message "invite sender is not in game anymore".

but every time it seems in launcher, that i am in game with icon

so i cant play multiplayer.

what i missed? how can i made satisfactory client visible in satis menu?

btw i even tested with 2 pc's in 1 room in 1 network

p.s host nat- moderate, sometimes was tbd-no changes

What is your "network quality" set to? (try ultra, it's under game options)
And what Internet connection do you have?

Try Hamachi, it can connect peeps on the same ip address and hopefully make you connect easier

I tried with hamachi already, creating vpn in my room

Check your session settings in menu while in game, you need to switch it from private to "friends only"

i tested all variations, it is friends onlu usual. btw you can host as private, just sending invites. for client look like that

for private, or friends
