Multiplayer Chat and Group Travel

Postby churchill » Wed Nov 14, 2018 4:01 am

How hard would it be to create a real time multiplayer?

- parties could trade items, members, and help each other survive

I think this would be a ton of fun. I tried simultaneously logging in, but in the current version you essentially only see flickers of your friends, and it's never really what they are doing at the moment.

A good model to follow would be "Don't Starve," which did a pretty great job adding a multiplayer expansion.

In general we're interested in exploring more MP ideas. Have you seen the RIVALS spin-off?

Yeah, I originally thought this was a forum for RIVALS. I love the idea but if you can't actually collaborate with other parties, then I'm not sure what the point is. I love the survival and exploration, but that's already pretty perfect in single player.

-real time chat
-group trading
-the ability to start your own world with friends
-optional combat/sabotage (in bigger group games)

Yeah that would be cool. Right now real-time chatting is basically only happening in the rivals channel on our discord, but there is not integration in the game. Thanks for the feedback!
