A server being up may be enough to get me to purchase this game, right now.

#9 Edited by MariachiMacabre (7099 posts) -

Yeah, I'm probably going to buy this later tonight so it'd be cool to pick up and start playing with people.

#10 Edited by SithToast (168 posts) -

Workin on that right now. I'll have a server up shortly :)

#13 Edited by Amikron (339 posts) -

Did you guys ever get a server started? What is the player cap?

This seems like it would be way more fun with others, kinda like terraria.

I'm not very far myself, just stone tools, but I'm more than willing to run around like an idiot.

#14 Posted by SithToast (168 posts) -

Give it a go at: games.toasttopia.com .... default port and all that. I'll hop on as soon as I get my client downloaded.

Report any oddities here!

#15 Edited by Amikron (339 posts) -

Connected with 0 problems, that is a good start!

#16 Posted by soulcake (318 posts) -

@sithtoast: THX for hosting a server i will join later today.

#17 Edited by takayamasama (443 posts) -

Ooo I'd love hop on and play with some duders.

Can anyone answer me if single player toons can join multiplayer, or do you need to make a new character. I only ever played Terraria single player.

Something about a huge open server where everyone goes and builds their own base on whatever planet is super appealing

Yep, you can take your single player character into multiplayer.

#19 Posted by SithToast (168 posts) -

Just giving everyone a heads up the only way I know how right now (wife is on the pc, i'm downloading the game on my mac): I have a mumble server if you wanna join and talk on that.

Just point mumble to talk.toasttopia.com ... if you are using google's DNS servers, you should be good to go. Otherwise, use the ip to connect for now: 23.22.95.38

#20 Posted by Player1 (3891 posts) -

@sithtoast: Never connected to something like this before. What would I type in for server name and what would I type in for password? Thanks

Join us online...

You too can have your very own Medieval Space Truck like the one seen here!

edit:

Awesome, patch is out updating some minor stuff

- Massively reducing the pixel cost (sometimes eliminating it entirely) on early weapons/armor. You can build a refinery in later tiers to turn ores of all kinds into pixels. (done)

- Monsters now have a small chance to drop meat when killed with normal weapons. (done)- You can no longer teleport to another players ship from underground (done)- Bandages are now craftable with 4 plant fibres, no longer require fabric (done)

How are your impressions of the game so far? I wanted to like Terraria but there were aspects of the game I didn't really enjoy. Interesting to know.

#26 Edited by Amikron (339 posts) -

@machofantastico: Personally I'm loving it. I was not a fan of the general flow of Terraria despite enjoying the actual crafting and building portion of the game but the combat side of Starbound is much more enjoyable for me even at the early stage I'm in. I think this is a case though, just like Terraria, of a game you're going to get a lot more out of when playing in a group of people you can almost kinda sorta trust.

Basically everyone should play with GB'ers, because we're super cool and we're ...

... in SPAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!!!!!

#27 Posted by JSwan13 (290 posts) -

Man this sounds like a blast, I'm gonna try to get on tonight.

#28 Posted by Amikron (339 posts) -

Just a reminder though that when you're in a game with someone and they join your party they can go on your ship, remove and add blocks, access your storage, etc. at the moment. Keep this in mind if you guys play MP with other people. Hate to have someone lose their hard earned tvs and other merchandise just because they partied with the wrong assholes.

#29 Edited by SithToast (168 posts) -

I have taken the server down for an update and to shuffle a few things around on the server itself. I think it'll be up in the next 2 - 3 hours within the hour.

#30 Posted by MasterRain (316 posts) -

"You can no longer teleport to another players ship from underground (done)" LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME

#31 Posted by Amikron (339 posts) -

@sithtoast: Thanks for the heads up, will have to squeeze in some play time today. Game is stupidly fun.

#32 Posted by bunnymud (717 posts) -

Sorry I was so drunk last night. Fuck cells. Beep boop.

#33 Edited by Amikron (339 posts) -

@bunnymud: It just makes you a more effective robot. No worries.

edit:

Oh so... 1 handed weapons, you can equip your torch/flashlight in your offhand and still light up the area. Also you can dual wield flashlights.

Just throwing that out there...

#35 Posted by SithToast (168 posts) -

Well, that didn't take as long as I expected. Server should be up again!

Gonna try to clean out this dungeon on my planet then I should pop in...in a bit

Okay, I've bought Starbound. Once I get use to it I might jump on that server if that's okay with you fine folks.

#41 Edited by Player1 (3891 posts) -

Been having a great time on this server!

Edit: In game name is Azul Kong

#42 Posted by WillieMcBride (63 posts) -

You can add music to the game for instruments by putting it in the steamapps/common/starbound/assets/songs folder, they have to be abc files. Here's one I made for Guile's Theme, you should download it so we can all play it together, because that's also a feature, because this game is fucking rad.

Welcome to the server's brand new Arcade/Public Crafting Area/Storage/Inn/Concert Hall

I kinda just did this without consent of the server so I hope everyone is cool with this. Just want to make it simple for people to do their crafting when they need it.

Overrun prison cleared. Planet surface scoured. Sleep cycle destroyed.

Just bought the game today, and I'll be up for some online. I played a little of terraria, but never got into the online. Might not start playing before the next patch though, because there is going to be a character reset.

So, can you upgrade your spaceship or just make stuff on the planets themselves?

#48 Edited by development (2565 posts) -

@sammo21: You can put all kinds of shit inside your ship, but doesn't seem like you can upgrade the actual hull or anything like that. I wouldn't rule it out, though, the way they're making huge changes left and right.

So guys, after finding little tiny foot-tall houses and poop monsters in a sewer, I finally succumbed to poison. Got a good pic, though:

@noricon: Hi Nori! I went to bed when you were just getting started on that, but it looks fucking dope.

#50 Posted by WillieMcBride (63 posts) -

Just so everyone knows, characters will be wiped in the next update, and maybe worlds too, but I dunno about that. My fishman now is named Boatwaltzer, I'll probably go birddude and call him Boatwingzer next time around.
