What is it?
A mod of tgstation 13 that is modified for low population servers; with simplified jobs, maps, duties and command structure.
How do I get it?
MiniStation is built into the /tg/ repo, so download the main code here (https://github.com/tgstation/-tg-station).
How do I run it?
Simply navigate to the _maps folder and tick ministation.dm, and only that file in the _maps folder, then compile and you will be running MiniStation.
Who is the target audience?
Server hosters who want to host a server for a player count of around 5 to 20 people.
What about the map?
The map has been created from the ground up with population size in mind. You can see the map to the right.

Changes to the uplinks were made to discourage murderboning, the rest is much the same.
