    Specs for dedicated server for Pitboss mode

    Hello!

    I'm planning on setting up a dedicated server for Pitboss mode for around 8 players with all expansions. What specs do the server need to have? Minimum, recommended? Can I run the civ server on Linux or do I need Windows?

    Thanks in advance!

    Since pitboss for Civ5 is just running the game in observer mode, the requirements are the same as for the regular game.
    I advise you to run the pitboss server in strategic mode, that saves on GPU en resources. Still, I would prefer to go for the recommend specs for the game.
    You need Windows for the game to run. As far as I know the pitboss server isn't ported to Linux.
