Does your server have the Arid files downloaded from the Steam Workshop?

i just start my dedicated server where i play on with my friends and it just stopped working

Well, you would have added its Workshop file ID to the WorkshopDownloadConfig.json, and then when you run your server it prints the statuses of Workshop content as it downloads them successfully/unsuccessfully during boot.

Can you show an example of what that line should look like, with multiple workshop items, as an example? (I am trying to follow the Unturned server hosting documentation and Arid isn't listed and I'm getting massive amounts of errors trying to launch with it as the map.)

It's a comma-delimited list. For example, your completed configuration file might look like this:

{ "File_IDs": [ 2683620106, 2753787833, 2722143718 ], "Ignore_Children_File_IDs": [], "Query_Cache_Max_Age_Seconds": 600, "Max_Query_Retries": 2, "Use_Cached_Downloads": true, "Should_Monitor_Updates": true, "Shutdown_Update_Detected_Timer": 600, "Shutdown_Update_Detected_Message": "Workshop file update detected, shutdown in: {0}", "Shutdown_Kick_Message": "Shutdown for Workshop file update." }

Those are (respectively) the workshop IDs of the Arid, OIL LAMPS, and Stim Injector mods. As mentioned on the docs, workshop IDs are publicly accessible – it's in the URL of the item's Workshop Page.

Got it running, thank you! Now I'm just having problems with port forwarding... Is there official server setup documentation anywhere? this guide seems to be the only one I can find that is almost working, but it's unofficial. What ports does Unturned need forwarded?

This is the official doc that is linked to a few times from the main server hosting doc: https://github.com/SmartlyDressedGames/U3-Docs/blob/master/PortForwarding.md

In summary, you need to forward ports 27015 and 27016 (UDP protocol). If you're unfamiliar with port forwarding, reference a site such as portforward.com

I am very familiar with it on home network but I'm trying to set up a server behind a Mikrotik router and its been, well, a massive headache so far.

I'm not familiar with MikroTik, but you'll likely have to search for router-specific guides (and then modify accordingly). It looks like PortForward.com doesn't have any router guides for MikroTik, so other resources should be used.

I'd wager you need to manually enable port forwarding. But the actual port rules are likely under something such as Firewall --> NAT Rules. Maybe need to specify dstnat rather than srcnat. And then manually toggle the rule on after creating it.

Unfortunately, I am unable to give you more tailored advice.
