1.5 exploration | Questions

Recommended Posts

Hey there explorers 😁

So, after 1 year, yes it has been 1 year since I played exploration i got some questions about the new system.

So, I opened my map and it says something like "share multiplayer with your friends". So i opened options and published it. That does mean other players can enter my world map? If i put a password, does it mean they will need it to enter my map even if they are on my friends list?

Or if i dont put any password, does it means any player can come and gather the resources from my map? What is the state of resources respawn?

Do i have to be online for others to visit me like the "old map sharing"?

If so, What happens if im in a friend map and he goes offline? Will i get back to my map with my ship?

Yes other player's can stumble upon your yland(the game that you published). If you password your game, only player's that get the game from your through share feature will be able to get to it. Players that you share your game with don't need the password even if there is one on your game.

You can share any active multiplayer game from your map with your friends by clicking the share button on the desired yland in the Region map.

yes other players can find your game in their maps if you don't put password on. Resources do not respawn as of right now, but you can always find new pristine ylands so there should be no shortage of resources for those willing to look for them :).

If you simply publish your game you need to be in it for it to be available to anyone else. If you want to have a game that can be available for others even if you're offline, you can always setup a Sharegame or rent high performance dedicated server.

If you're in a friend's map and he goes offline you will be transported back to the Region map and you can choose another map to sail to. Your maps and your ship are not affected by this and are always available to you.
