More GiantBomb Servers

#1 Posted by CaptainTryHard (207 posts) -

Can we get some more GiantBomb servers up and running? As I know of, we only have 1. Let's get more with different types of options. I've tried to contribute myself, but I couldn't get my friend to connect so I gave up.

Not sure why that would be necessary. It's far cooler with one tricked out world than several empty ones.

There are talks of moving to a better server, so the connectivity issues should be resolved once that happens. What sort of "options" are you looking for? Do you mean just multiple servers to choose from, or a different configuration on the server? I don't know that we really need more than one. Why not try the Tested server, or some other server? Tested has some Giant Bomb guys in there, but ideally there shouldn't be any further segregation of the community than that. Go where the people already are.

If you want another one, just set it up.

There's the Tested Server, Krakns' server, FunExplosions' server, and the Giantbomb Alpha server.

@LordAndrew: I mean different servers for different styles of play. One hell-world server to goof off in, one build-only server with no enemies, and one regular server for co-op. Plus sometimes the Giantbomb server is full.

Are those all alpha servers? My bad for not doing enough searching on the forums though.

Are all those servers functional? I know there's been difficulties with some of them.

Which server is full? I've never seen that on FunExplosions' server. It's just not terribly reliable, so you may not always be able to get on successfully. The existing servers are all about building, and I think that's what most people want. It's still too buggy for a decent multiplayer survival experience unfortunately, so it always just ends up being about building. Always building.

Krakn's server seems to have fallen in activity since his server crashed for a week or so. I haven't hopped on and see if its still remotely active. 
 
Also hell isn't functional just yet in multiplayer.

@CaptainTryHard: Pretty sure hell and survival aren't doable in multiplayer yet.

You can't get to The Nether through portals, but maybe he means hellworld=true?

@LordAndrew: Yes

Are you responding to the hellworld=yes comment? I do have multiple posts in this thread. :)
