    Meaning, you probably hacked it?

    Ah! You never know when one of those rascals will show up.

    Haha! That's like asking for a refund at a restaurant because the food is terrible and they offer you a coupon for some free food.

    Yes, I've used them a lot for game hosting. They also give you a free Mumble server and website space with a game server. I won't be doing a Ylands server because the server won't even run for me. I have no problem with dozens of other servers.

    NFO Servers is a good hosting company. Tech support is 24/7 and usually have response within minutes.

    Since I was one of the first to inquire, where's the info?

    Dedicated Server FAQ

    Perhaps you (Bohemia) should start a dedicated server alpha testing group. You appear to have a lot of interested parties here. You could sign up testers and supply a private link with server builds before releasing a buggy build to the general public. I know this sounds a bit crazy, but...

    Dedicated Server FAQ

    Linux is open source. It can be free but some distributions charge. It is much more efficient and reliable than Windows servers, thus the reason most servers use it, probably 80% or more of the Internet runs on it. Most dedicated server hosts charge less for a Linux-based server because it costs them less.

    Dedicated Server FAQ

    Now that the game has been released, what is the state of the dedicated server? If it has not been fixed and vastly improved, I will not bother hosting one or playing for that matter. This kind of game will not survive without dedicated servers, so this has to be priority.
  11. I guess some people don't like to hear the truth. My comments are direct. I thought this was the idea of a technical issue forum. Guess some would rather everyone be a fanboy and let the game die.
  12. Adding to MP problems, the dedicated server isn't stable at all. I just tried logging in and it reaches 100% download and goes no farther. Just keeps scrolling the funny phrases at the top. This happened the other day too. The server monitor shows no errors or anything unusual, but you have to kill the server and start all over to make it work. Could it be, since the server is set to allow four players and it never logs players out when they disconnect, that I can't login because the server thinks there are four player on?
  13. Everyone has their own preferences and I respect yours. May have something to do with the differences in age or how we were brought up. I grew up long before home computers when games were cards and board games. I used to play the war games by Avalon Hill and SSI. These were hardcore board games with giant boards about 3-feet square and hundreds of hexes on the board. A single game with two players often took several days to complete, that is, if you could keep the board from getting turned over during this time. When computers came and RTS games appeared, I thought it was great. Now I could play these games in real-time, not turn-based like board games. It's the reason I despise turn-based strategy now (with the exception of Moonbase Commander). And those game I could play single-player, but sandbox MMOs just don't offer the same challenges for SP mode and I see them more as social games. Aside from this, games should offer both options, I'm just saying that MP is more important and should be priority in development. What SP computer games do you know of that are still popular after 10 years or so?
  14. Doors? Where are doors? I've never found them in the crafting. I don't see much fun in a sandbox game where you just eat and pick up things and craft stuff for single player. It would have to be a game that has specific goals to achieve, solving quests, completing a story, etc. The people who should be playing single player games are the ones in survival games who just want to kill others on sight. I'll suggest what I have in other forums of new survival-type games: If this game is to "survive", it needs to concentrate on multi-player, specifically on dedicated servers. Look at any older game that has survived through the years and you'll usually find they have a successful dedicated server community. After EA and GameSpy bailed out on many of their games and removed master servers, many of them were revived by fans who figured out how to keep dedicated servers online. There is a new survival game coming that I'm really jazzed about and it appears to have a very competent dedicated server component.
  15. Mainly because I can't stand single player games. Multiplayer is the reason computer games were created. Otherwise, why not just read a book?
