Had a ton of fun in MP today - amongst all the engine errors, we powered through for at LEAST 12 + hours
but we did encounter a few bugs along the way - understandable - concerning things like… if anyone tried to join during battle, the entire game would crash, and other things - if we try more than one connecting at once, we would also crash
I do have 2 save files to upload if you would like to take a look?
just need confirmation that it would work that way? (being MP game)
Cheers for the fun guys, and we will pick it up again later/tomorrow/ whenever
Well one thing to share is that the campaign is a bit of a stickler, and so is unequal ballance.
I’ll explain : a friend went as rayas children, me as ascendancy in the desert. Because he was a lot more suited for the enviromwnt and also not always the most sane he gained money-fast… Causing enemies to become highly strong before I, and he were. Problem: I was the crumple zone for the spawned goblins…
Second problem, if more then one player advances at the same time, (and this happens) goblin villages spawn a lot, one for each player adjacent. Usually making it a much more difficult fight because they get drawn into the fight making it a massive meel. You can’t possibly survive without a pile of clerics
we had a similar game towards the end of our collective one, where @pingu decided to hearth in the forest… which happened to be where EVER (almost) enemy was spawning from (even before he joined) we just assumed they would spawn elsewhere as he claimed that area - speaking of
a good addition would be to allow us to CLAIM specific areas… reason… HEARTHINGS ARE THIEVES!!!
I did not imagine when i woke up yesterday, that i would sit all day playing SH… But i (i think we all where) was really into this MP. The first game i joined (before the 12+ hours) had a nasty surprise… it was hardmode! i werent prepered and got anihilated in the first 10 minutes or so! The next game (12+H) we started everyone was prepared and i must say that HM really suits MP!
But one thing i would like, is somekind of information before joining a game, that tells me stuff like, difficultylevel? Biome? How long has the game been in progress?
EDIT: Oh and the templates… please let us use our templates! The core of the game is building and one of the things we used time on yesterday, was looking at eachothers buildings.
Thanks for a great day all and thank you to Team SH for making this happen
