Last multiplayer survival thread hit bump limit >>252764ITT: MP Survival Games appreciation and discussion/vm/ servers:Ark/vm/ Dino Fun184.108.40.206:29515GenesisNY basedMods: Structures PlusConan>NY Based /vm/ Conan Exiles server>Struggle & Survival>220.127.116.11:7777Some examples of survival games to discuss:Ark, conan exiles, 7 days to die, rust, empyrion, green hell, the forest, terraria, starbound, raft, valheim, craftopia, scum and the like
>>325976Some ark info:As ark is a bitch about installing mods, to join the server manually sub to this stuff on the workshop to avoid issues.https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=731604991https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2357644511https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2117881804https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2112042937https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=895711211https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1277490425How to play DLC maps for free and the entire thing as cheap as possible:If you have ark on steam just install it, if not go to g2a, epicnpc or whatever shit google brings to you and buy a 3-4 bucks steam acc with ark, yeah they work, some of us play with them.Download thishttps://files.catbox.moe/x2y398.7zExtract somewhere, open and let it update itselfPoint the launcher to "ARK" folderTo find this folder, right click on game on steam, properties, local files, browseGo to DLCs on the launcher and just click install extinction or watever, let it end and close itGo to your steam folder again and navigate hereARK\Engine\Binaries\ThirdParty\Steamworks\Steamv132\Win64Download thishttps://files.catbox.moe/y4qeec.7zUnzip it in there, overwritingAnd dats it, you can play the DLCs now, launch game with the second option, the one without battleye and join the serverIf something isn't working, you are the issue, redo it.Note for retards: sub to the mods on steam not launcher, whenever game updates you update dlcs with the launcher too, google how to use family sharing to play ark from your main acc using one of this shitty 3-4 bucks ones to avoid the burden of switching accs to play ark.
>>325976So i got the game (ark), how do i join the server?
>>325976Had to quit conan cause of the launcher. Funcom sucks.
>>326199>>326420Also you can just paste this in your browser to direct connect after being sub to the stuffsteam://connect/18.104.22.168:29515
>>326421yeah well.. i cracked the game
>>326389If you just want to play solo then pirate the game.
>>326001Adding a last bit of info for absolute retards like that shit that posted aboveHere you can get those 3 bucks ark accs (for steam)https://www.g2g.com/ark-survival-evolved/account-24242-24244?keywords=steam&sorting=lowest_priceAlso, due genesis 2 soon the entire thing is 67% off over steam right now and for a week and the base game 80% off if you wanna pirate DLC but not buy account
Is there any survival game that doesn't just immediately devolve into "gather wood to make axe, get slightly better material, repeat for 1000 hours" and just lets me scavenge and kill shit? Doesn't even have to be multiplayer tbqgdh
Anyone running a 7 Days to Die server?
>>326988You could try Darkwood. It's more focused on exploration/hopeless style survival. As in: you pretty much never become a god, the world is always quite dangerous. Upgrading shit isn't really the main focus of them game, it happens a lot more slowly.
>>327275What game is that?
>>3276267 days to die
What are the ark server rates?
>>327702I think dino stuff is x3 and gathering x2Pretty good balanced rates to don't feel like game is a slog or a grindin simulatorYet, no one seems interested in Genesis 1 so current map is basically a waiting server for Genesis 2 (in 4 days)So, chaser, mite be kul to increase rates here a bit to blitz this fucking map this weekend
>>327300Thanks, I'll look into it.
Frozen lake cool
Got the forest from the sale on steam. Is there where I can discuss the forest vr?
>>328291There is a VR general on /vg/
Wish i wasn't a wagecuck so i could grind some solo pvp in conan new siptah.
Lovin how fucking stupid dinos are
>>328737PUTA probably filled with eldritch horrors
>>327723>Genesis 2 (in 4 days)If they decide to actually release it this time that is>So, chaser, mite be kul to increase rates here a bit to blitz this fucking map this weekendOk, we won't be there long but maybe with a little boost you can rush the boss by the time the new map is released.
>>328859Maybe they delay it again just enough for the sale to end, for funAnd yeah, I need to get 150 element and a buncha black pearls and stuff somehow to even begin doing stuff, having all the mats spread along maps is not helpin for speed
>>328869>I need to get 150 element and a buncha black pearls and stuff somehow to even begin doing stuffJust so you know, you can usually get a replicator from the rec crate from HLN-A, which lets you turn the shards from the red crystals into real element.You can get lots of black pearls and shards from inside the volcano once you can fight your way in
And the fucking game crashed
>>328872>Just so you know, you can usually get a replicator from the rec crate from HLN-AThis was changed actually, you can't get it from crates. You have to craft it in the fabricator
>>329113Well, at least now I'm glad I failed miserably that fucking gauntlet quest
HeyBasically you're being targeted by it (the insect swarm!!)I know..... UGH I know.... I'm sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It's just that you're being targeted is allHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHA
So, did Isle of Siptah got a release? Also, I wonder if there is a way to get those items from twitch drops without doing that shit, either with the cheat console or pirated version.
>>329662>So, did Isle of Siptah got a release?yes it's official 1.0 now. i think the twitch drops look meh so don't give a fuck.
>>329871Can't beat the spikes, not the spikes.So, chaser if ya want to act as a trademachine for those fragments I left em inside some unlocked box inside the ice lake thingAnd some pearls for ya you might need
>conan exiles free for 1 week>trying with a friend coop gameplay>first day he connects with me no problem>second day can't connect at all, we tried all solutions and nothing>today he connects first try no problem for hours, I had to reboot my pc and now he can't joinWhat's up with this bugged with 0 official support game? We were almost buying it but if it's just a hassle to make it work every time then even the pirated version is better with hamachi or something like it.
>>330111Kill yourself frogposter
The Conan server has been offline for months, retard OP
>get out of chair>fall down
>>330236No, chaser, I have transcended chairs, I would never fall from it
>>330201fuck off tranny
>>330111Yeah, coop is weird and not easy to set up and indeed pirated is how I roll.
>plant some species x plants to kill insect swarms>insect swarms kill plantIt wasn't supposed to be like this...
>>330778You lived in the fucking blue and some 2 dmg bugs are patrolling you?
>>330790No turrets work on them apparently, so I have to actually stop what I'm doing and personally deal with them to get rid of them. Either that, or have my tames attack them and ruin their positioning. It's much worse than the blue.I remember why I left the bog so early the first time now
Tek and stone and I can't even afford walls or a ceiling
>>326988idk, Don't starve?It still has the gather good meme but there are a few ways of doing it besides the chop chop
Any survival with zombies?
>have relatively powerful PC>Ark still fucks it in the ass with ~30fpsAm I doing something wrong or do I need to turn something off? It's not like I set everything to ultra and have a gazillion things on screen
>>331087>relatively powerfulPost CPU and GPU so you can have a proper reply
>>331087Turn down the hud scaling. Having that turned up halved my fps. If you're still having fps problems, lower ground clutter density and distance for another big boost, and shadows for a bit more.If you still have problems after all that, I'd be inclined to say your pc just isn't that good for ark
>>331160i9-9900, RTX 2080ti>>331189I'll try that, thanks
>>331333With a 2080ti, unless you are playing on 4k, you should be able to get proper fps even on ultra settings, like 144+ fps easilySomething is fucked up in there
>>331333>>331366Yea that's a good gpu.I assume you have at least 8gb ram if you have a 2080ti.What resolution do you play at? Ever since i upgraded to my 3440x1440 screen my fps dropped quite a bit, which should be expected I guess
>>331366>>331379That's what I kept thinking, I'm redownloading now to a new drive I got to check if it was some sort of HDD fuckery, I was having issues at 1920x1080 and it didn't seem like lag or other server issue
>>331385It's usually a silly question, but you do have the right drivers right? It's worked fine for most games? This isn't a pc you just put together is it?Just for comparison, I use a 2070 and play at 3440x1440 on mostly epic settings at 50-60fps. You shouldn't be having issues especially at 1920x1080
>>331397Yeah it's worked fine for a little over a year now, I just went into Ark one day and everything was slugglish and choppy as hell. Tried again, same thing. I'll see how things go now
>>331472This is what I play with, and again I get about 50 fps normally, your gpu is better so you should be able to do at least what I have fine
>>330227No, I'm playing on an official server right now
>>331397>>331482That is with ultrawide chaser monitorOver this map, at 1080p, using ultra and having the same GPU as chaser and a bit better CPU with some OC I never get under 100fpsSo either your hardware is broken or you have some miner stealing your GPU gainsHDD and server have nothing to do with framerate.Yet, if you use a HDD instead of a SSD in some games you can get the "choppy" experience.
>>325976Is the conan server still working?
>>331780Yeah, I'm playing online on an official server right now
>>331786you are not op
>>331848OP only plays ark, as everyone should
>>331780I think it's ded, but it's been a while since I checked. I just on and off play solo sp now. I could maybe play with some anons, if anyone finds a server for us.
Anyone have any input on some better/larger content mods for Terraria?Currently planning on playing with Calamity/Thorium/Fargo's/Abaddon/Dragonball, with a few QOL like Magic Storage and BossCheck.
Bring me the terminatorLast genesis day
>>331854I tried ark in this sale and looks complete garbage, am I missing something?
>>332576ILL BE BAK
>Genesis Part 2 is currently finishing the automated certification process. >We expect that process to be complete in the early morning, so we'll be launching simultaneously on all platforms at 8 AM Eastern June 3rd. DELAYED
>>332726>8 AM8AM where you fucks
conan exiles is leagues better than ark
>>332816No is not
>>332795>8 AM EasternEST
>>332864So it should be up right when I leave work.Finally a brand new map with everything unknow to play and discover.Bright times ahead.
who here playing rust today
Decided to get back into conan a few days ago. Heard it's official release and new pc patch.>Graphics glitch, everything looks extremely bright>Thralls still stuck on nodes>Getting stuck in the horse not fixed>Entire stacks of resource like star metal or steelfire vanish when moved from chest to inventory>Glitchy mobs, might be because of ping but hard to tell>Crashes during loading after using map room>The best for last, random crashes (can happen anywhere) that freeze up the whole pc, basically forcing a hard reset and your character dying.Thanks for the full release funcom
>>332816ark plays smooth at least, conan is a bugged mess
Almost 4 hours late, and still no new ark map for steam yet
>>333429>>333412Now to wait for both server and launcher adding genesis files
>>333446The update launched on steam a bit ago, ready to be downloaded.The server is currently updating.
The ark server is updated and should be running the new map now.My client is still updating so I can't know for certain everything is fine until I log in of course, but it 'should' be working
>>333513Alright, I logged on and looked around a bit, the new map looks pretty cool with a really interesting underwater biome, but that aside, everything is working fine and it's ready whenever you want to join
>>333513>>333561I'm getting the files, will update the DLC-piracy-thing when I'm in and see it werks
>>333570>>333570Nevermind, this shit already unlocks both genesis 2 and season pass, will work right away with the same stuffAnd here I amDid ya added any new mod, chaser?Shits being annoying about mod versions but I can join servers just fine with the stuffs I uploaded already
>>333602Also maybe you enabled this along the new map somehow Give it a lookie
>>333602No new mods, but I did rove 2 redundant ones from extinction times>>333609I didn't change anything like that, but the update may have reset some settings so I'll look through everything to get that fixed asap
>>333610Yeah the mods thing was just steam being stupid about mods as usual, had to unsub/sub again and it werked
Ok, I've changed the setting that was causing that issue. Everything else seemed unchanged, so I'm not sure why there was only this one thing off, so I'll just blame the update and leave it at that.The server is restarting with settings that should let you in now.
>>333623I could just use a different account, just testin around for it to be as poor-player-friendly as possibleWhich is just fine now
There's a bunch of new people joining, so I'm gonna repost some settings here for your information:>2x gathering>3x taming>3x xp>2.5x breeding (all breeding rates)We have Structures Plus, a hairstyles mod, Classic Fliers, and Dino quick recoveryhttps://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=731604991https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2357644511https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=895711211https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1277490425
>>332816I think they are just different.
>obsidian>silk>tek wallThis genesis 2 beacons are random as fuck
We like the mooon
Rate my vertical mansion.I built it from the top down on one of those large spires in the Plains.I originally place a portal up top, which connected to my home base. My original plan was to have a base with no ground access.I also kept it a secret from my friends, and they were very much surprised when they eventually found it.I then build the tower to allow for ground access.
Fuck tek armor
>>334892Cool.I always think to myself that it'd be nice to build up on a pillar like that but I always end up doing something else. It looks nice
>>334892how much time did it take?
How this game hold up in terms of just.. idle comfy chatter? I'm not exactly a Minecraft person but whenever I join a server in these games, it's overwhelming and there's 500 buildings everywhere.
>>335086>this gameWhat game
>server crashed while I was roaming the space and being attacked by a space bitch200 element and my anky lost forever unless rollback
anyone wanna play alien swarm rd?
My fucking stuuufff
>server back>login>die>crash againSomeone is steppin on the plugs
>third crash in a row>my body isn't there anymoreYeah, fuck it
>>335144>Third crashThe fuck?What's going on when it crashes?I'm range banned away from home so I can't respond but I've been trying to deal with it and getting it back.It's possible the map just needs a better server but that would be strange to only just now show up.I'll put it back again for now but I'll look into it when I get a chance
>>335032Around 8 hours in total. With at least 3 spent trying to figure out how to prevent the pieces furthers from the pillar from crumbling due to structural integrity.
>>335148Guess it was just some host provider failure spree, it werked just fine past days, it just happened to fuck me with a drill some anky and a ton of element so I'm mad at the game now
So I got back home and did some looking around and pic related seems to have been causing the crashes.Simple to fix, and should be working without issue now.
>>335278Damn, genesis 2 truly is fucking big, hoarding all that ramIn loving memory of my lost low lvl anky, you will never be forgotten because now I have no one to mine this fucking shit and the drill died with it.I'm not a nigger I'm not supposed to do manual labor.
There are a lot of different asteroid setups for this map
>>333357they fixed the crashes and freezes already.
>>335587Yeah, buncha gems currentlySeems like I had all my cryopods with me too when shit explodedDinoless one
my one true wish in life is to have a /vm/ ark primitive+ serverthat mod was the best
>>335837At night time they are gone while ship travels
>server crashed againThe fug
Structural safety?What the fuck is that
Livin on a cliff is no reason to don't have some irrigation system
>>336157>I think the pipe got clogged
Is there a valheim server for /vm/ or whatever?

tfw no good conan pve vanilla server with good ping
how to tame a shadowmane >when it 'sleeps', crouch up to it and feed it with a filled fish basket (put it in slot 0)>when it gets up, net it and run away (optional but extremely helpful)>repeat this until you tame it. YAYby the way, if it aggros onto you at any point after feeding, you lose all progress lmao
Thoughts on Craftopia? Is it worth for $20 or am I better off playing Valheim or something?
>>336852>tfw no good conan pve vanilla server with good pingthere are plenty of official servers my man, but pvp private servers are where it's at.
>>336856idk man I got the game in this sale so I'm pretty new, should I jump into a pvp server right alway? I tried the pve official but jesus christ it's cancerous, the private pve servers are all super modded
>all that conan SS>clothes onSon...
>>336855Never tried it, tell me more.>>336810>>336842comfy, btw, they released Siptah, but I assume it's still not fully done, yes? And you can't travel between the maps?
Siptah server?I don't think I can run Ark with a 960
Where is the PC splitscreen coop Ark promised years ago?
>>337089I think old map is better, but whatever, if /vm/ lads did any Conan server I might join in.
>go to 135 cords>as soon as I render the area it dies to something and is not listed anymoreso this is how 145 died, somehow
Reminder that Conan Exiles is a perfect game for buck breaking.
>>337500Can catch darfari nig and break him on the wheel, and there are sex mods too. Not sure if male x male animations work for them though.
>sleep giganigga>forget they lose torpor at match speed while I demolish the gates I used to trap it>the absolute nigger wakes up as soon as I open its inventory to put tranqs inNuff ark for today

>>340460You have no assole you freak
>incompatible mod versionI don't see any updates, what fucking mod updated now
>>340473I dunno, I'm trying to figure it out atm, server should be completely up to date
>>340473>>340474Actually just 'fixed' it, ark had a tiny update a couple of hours ago which must've broke something, i just deleted my mods (clientside) and let them reinstall and it let me join.Thanks ark
>>340475I keep gettin the same messageGod damn it
>>340481Deleting everything and letting it reinstall fixed it for me and the people I saw on the steam discussion forums.It seems to specifically be causing an issue with s+ that needs it to be reinstalled, you may have to restart steam to get it to reinstall the mod after
>>340483Cursed guesss gotta verify game files now
A lot of cool base locations on this map
>>340593Ya conan bitch needs a burg or two, does she even lift
Seems like there is some weird bug with the baby raising buff, gacha got stuck at 8% for like 20m, avoid refreshin it for the time being, chaser
I miss when ark was just a silly dinosaur game and not a chink infested tek mess
How is terraria now? Whenever I played on /vg/, it was always a mad dash to the end with like 3 bosses done per afternoon, and all the "building", if you could call it that, was just tile spam.
>>335157How did you end up managing that? I have no idea how structural integrity works in valheim apart from the fact that better building materials are sturdier
>>333359>ark plays smooth at leastIt's like 200 gigabytes, looks like ass, and runs even worseI'm not playing on a potato but I have to dive into the files and do some setting fuckery to make it look like play-dough before it decides to behave
>>340472You just have clenched it really had in exiled lands.>>341611Yeah, ARK looks weird, I still want to try it solo, but just for prehistoric animals, not the weird sci fi stuff or guns.
>>341970Tek stuff is endgame, you get the "dino" experience over the island as its basically a tutorial map but as you advance you have more and more stuffEvery Ark is a simulation to train you to fight the evil things that took over humanity so you are already using hi-tech by default even if you are hitting stuff with a stone axe
>>341990everything after and including extinction was a mistake
>>342035Extinction is the most fun map, genesis was meh and genesis 2 is very fun so far.Still, If the "new" 3 maps are bad for your shit taste you have another 7 and several workshop maps to play in.
>>342117I just don't like the power ranger/monster direction they went in bro :(
Got to secure another wild gacha now that I can use the bow again
>>342585how does that work, I thought you just fed them garbage
>>342673You do but gachas on genesis 2 spawn over a zone full of rexes and carnivores, only one spawn over the entire world and their spawn rate is stupidly lowSo to secure one you need to make it to him alive and then kill anything attacking it before it kills the gacha
>Fucking PSU died yesterday>the 3 gacha babies and the giga starved to death

WorldBuffScalingEfficacy=1 This dynamic setting will act as a global scalar to reduce/increase the effectiveness of world buffs. 1 would be default, 0.5 would be 50% less effective, 100 would be 100x more effective.
>>325976Is it worth it to play Ark in singleplayer?
>>343227Of courseEven when we play on the same server we pretty much play SP, each one have their own solo tribe and do his autistic shit, we just ally and halp each other sometimes or group to kill bossesTribemates are only good to leech your resources and kill your dinos
It's been some time since I've played, and the latest thing to come out back then was Ragnarok, but the desert hadn't been implemented yet. I never played aberration, never fought any of the bosses, and only really dipped my toes into scorched earth. Most of my time was spent on the island and the center, where my buds and I spent all our time (probably 2 or more weeks of regular play on our private server) with boosted rates doing metal runs, which we were eventually able to use to get to the industrial age. We kind of stagnated there though; we were preparing to go caving, but the resource requirements for bullets, good armor, and setting up industry was kind of a slog, and we all quit.I'm thinking about getting back into it a bit, but some general tips and tricks to try and speed it up would be nice. About the most complicated thing we did was use a quetz and anky to go on metal and obsidian runs, and a little bit of wiring. I watched some OneWing videos on boats, and that seemed neat, but our base was some newfag shit and I guarantee it was not efficient in the least.What's the general path you take from being a lvl1 beach bob to a lvl100 dinofucker?What dinos do you prioritize, which are a waste, how do you usually build a base that serves an actual function (i.e. defenses, crops, power layout), what are some key locations or things to do to speed up the progression, what's the fastest way to level, what are some basic time-wasting noob traps to avoid, etc etc.>so you want to be spoonfed you dirty little newfagHonestly, kinda, I'm mostly just interested in the collective autistic knowledge gained from years of playing this game, and how I'd been doing it wrong all those years ago. Also some discussion and sharing of stories would be neat as we back-and-forth.Image is not mine and ancient, I dug it up out of some old threads when ark was fairly new and there was some anon tribe called the aqualads
>>343320>What dinos do you prioritize, which are a wasteTaming only really starts once you hit level 21 and unlock the tranq arrow. It's pretty easy to hit that level just doing beach things like making clothes, and killing dodos, although if you feel like it you can slingshot a dilo or two first before then.Dilos aren't really cool or strong, but their spit attack will slow anything, from a dodo to a rex, so they can be helpful when you try to run away, or even just as a distraction. They're a nice thing to tame when you have nothing yet, but don't get too attached.Once you have tranq arrows, what you tame first really depends on what you can find nearby you at the time. The really stellar early game tames are these though:The trike is great for berry gathering, which is very nice for making more narcotics for future tames. It's not the best, but really, it's plenty good enough for a mortar and pestle to make narcotics. If you have a trike, your bottleneck will probably be spoiled meat, not berries.They're also decent fighters. They're pretty slow, but they have ok stats for combat, and some pretty good knockback too. Giving them a nice advantage in fights that would otherwise go south for it real quick. A single trike with a saddle can handle packs of raptors by making use of its knockback.On the other hand, raptors themselves are a great early tame too. Throw a bola at them to immobilize them, and then shoot a few tranqs and they're yours, so it's pretty simple to tame an entire pack with just bolas and a bow. They also get buffed while in a pack, and the strongest one in the pack becomes the pack leader, and gets much stronger. They're really great at patrolling the beaches and rivers safely, and their speed lets you bail if you ever need to.Those two are without a doubt the best early game dinos you can get, as they're both effective and easy to tame.
>>343341The next great tame available is the stego. This guy can harvest wood and thatch really well now, and is an excellent berry gatherer too. They also have high health and good damage, outclassing the trike in all ways. They take quite a few more tranqs though, and can kill you if you let them get close enough.The rest are kind of 'collect as you see/need them' aside from the ankylo for metal, and doed for stone, until more late game play. The three mentioned above are in my opinion the best dinos available at or near the starter areasRafts are very useful as a temporary base for when youre still putting yourself together and not sure where you want to build yet. They can hold as much as you can fit on them without any weight issues, just don't take them out to open sea.My biggest tip for advancing quickly is to build near metal. It saves you a lot of time on travel, even with very efficient travel mounts, being close is the best.Of course, most metal is in some of the more dangerous areas, so a temporary base near a small patch of metal also works, but you want to eventually move to where the metal is. Being in the more dangerous areas can also be helpful, as you're closer to what you want to eventually tame too.>how do you usually build a base that serves an actual function (i.e. defenses, crops, power layout)The answer is way different depending on whether you play pvp or pve
>>343349Thanks for the write-up and I'm secretly hoping you do more, I recall most of this as familiar, only stegos back then were relegated for thatch and berry gathering like you said. I don't know if they got buffed recently (I'm using that term very loosely here) to be better at wood gathering, but we usually went and got mammoths and beavers instead for that. I seem to also remember stegos were the-go tanking animal for turret soaking, before trikes got the TLC pass that made their head shield reduce projectile damage (or maybe I'm misremembering and they always had that).I do remember the golden age of rafts coming to an end with the addition of the giant dumb whale fish that doesn't even do its intended job iirc (wasn't it introduced so people would stop making massive interconnected ironclad waterworld raft bases at the world border, but it doesn't even aggro on unmanned boats?).We were worried about building too close to metal, since we knew having foundations near it prevented it from respawning, so we kind of got overly cautious and built our base out of render distance of the metal.>The answer is way different depending on whether you play pvp or pveSo I've seen, PvP bases either being crammed 2x3 boxes hidden behind waterfalls or in crags, or massive sprawling skyscrapers surrounded by basketball hoops with turrets balanced around the rims. I'm probably leaning more towards the PvE side of things honestly, all we had in the way of housing were two big wooden boxes filled with storage containers and some electrical lighting. I think we had a greenhouse down by the beach, and a stone wall that surrounded the whole compound. By the way, when I say stone wall, I mean we went and placed fence foundations and stacked stone walls. Never once did it cross out minds to use stone gates, or wooden spike walls, because we were geniuses like that.Pic rel. was our base on The Center, we were situated on the southwest edge of the world
>>343369>stegos back then were relegated for thatch and berry gatheringThey did get a buff, and a pretty big one at that. They can move their plates on their back to swap between three 'modes' now. I might get some specifics wrong because I'm going off memory atm, but the modes are:Heavy: Gathers thatch from trees, and small amounts of wood and berries. When it hits an enemy, the enemy gets a slowing debuff that stacks with continuous hits, and a single stego can slow even an alpha raptor down to a crawl now after a bit.Armored: The default one, all wild stegos are in this mode. It's gathers lots of wood, a bit of thatch, and no berries. They take half normal damage from all sources.Sharpened: Gathers lots of berries, not much else. Attacks become armor piercing.Their new armored and heavy plates make them able to easily defend against wild rexes and other powerful creatures, making it great for base defense. But it is also slow, of course, so taking it very far without cryopods could be painful.Speaking of cryopods, they're something that didn't exist before rag had a desert I believe. They're basically pokeballs, you can grab your tamed dino and release it later, which is very useful if you wanted to move a stego or other slow creature around a long distance. It's a mid-game item you can craft at the obelisks and supply drops.>giant dumb whale fishI hated those things, they gave me a crippling fear of using rafts for the longest time. For the record, I think they do aggro unmanned rafts though.I got patrolled hard after rafting into the snow biome to tame some stuff, got whale'd on the way out with my new yuty and daeodon on board. Scary as all hell to hear and see it coming at night.>built our base out of render distance of the metal.That's a bit far lel, you can really get fairly close, I usually try to make myself at the nearest flat area to a metal patch and it works out most of the time.
>>343369>PvP bases either being crammed 2x3 boxes hidden behind waterfalls or in cragsThose became even more common with the addition of cryopods, since you didn't need to have an actual pen anymore unless you had breeding going on. Basketball hoop turret defenses were interesting to see the first time, definitely effective though, I guess, if a bit weird looking.I made a base almost exactly like the picture once.Only real difference was that the greenhouse wasn't actually a greenhouse and was just a normal building with plants in it. Walls went over to the ocean but not far in, and I would just walk around to leave, but wild dinos wouldn't see me to aggro though most of the time so it worked.Screw going any deeper than the shore though, too many sharks for that. I only ever entered for oil and for very small amounts from the closest oil rocks at that.Nowadays I tend to have everything connected, either as one big structure, or with passageways connecting the different structures.>Thanks for the write-up and I'm secretly hoping you do moreI thought I was writing way too much desu, but if you wanna read it, I'll type it out. I could write for days.I've been playing on and off since about a month after it went public early access back in 2015, so I know quite a bit to write about
>>343386Anything you have on the problem that has plagued developing nations since the beginning of time; the transition from an agricultural mud-hut society to one of industry and mechanization. How many stone furnaces are too many when you're initially trying to get metal going, is it worth using anything other than wood in there for fuel, which industrial machine do you prioritize first, etc.Any early game XP besides dodo bashing would be helpful too, I remember crafting a ton of cloth hats being pretty good, but I think they nerfed that ages ago
>>343399>The transition from an agricultural mud-hut society to one of industry and mechanization.The first step to this is to move over to a proper base location. As I mentioned earlier, building near metal is important, but you may want a temporary base first. If you want to start really getting into industry, you need to go ahead and move to a real base area if you aren't already.The argent/quetz and anky is still a great way to move lots of metal/crystal/obsidian from the momuntain top (where most of those resources are) to your base.Additionally, oil is important, but not hard to get a hold of from the snow biome (assuming the Island map.) Make sure you don't run out of gas though. Silica pearls are needed for electronics, but those can also be gathered from the icebergs or in underwater caves if you need a lot fairly simply, though you may want to tame a dolphin to reach the caves.Cementing paste can be gathered by the hundreds from beaver dams, it helps a lot to learn where they are and have a fast mount to gather the paste from them when you need it. Cementing paste is light, so you don't need to worry much about weight. Make sure to throw out everything you don't want from the dam, so that a new one can respawn later with more stuff.And finally, organic polymer can be obtained from penguins (varies from map to map,) and can be used for everything normal polymer can.In other words, the two most important areas for resources are the snow biome, and the mountains. So if you want to really go full throttle into late-game, you should have your main base near or in those areas.Anky for metal, obsidian, crystal, and oil.Silica pearls and cementing paste by hand.Club or chainsaw for organic polymer from penguins.The argent is generally the best flier for reaching resources with an anky.Stone walls are enough to keep out most things, and stone is used to craft paste if beavers aren't an option. If you need stone, you want to use a doed to gather it.
>>343320Too much textBest tip I can give you is, install S+
>>343399>>343414I make 6 stone furnaces if I'm really close to metal and can actually fill them all up more than once, but usually I just use 2 or 3 and let them go over time. Any metal it wasn't able to finish will be ready by the next day as long as it's fueled.I typically tend towards using wood for fuel because it leaves charcoal behind, which is used for gunpowder, while sparkpowder just burns away into nothing. If I don't have a wood gathering dino available at the time though, I prefer sparkpowder.I always build the industrial forge as soon as I can. Once you reach the level to unlock it, you should start working towards it. Being able to smelt massive amounts of metal at very little cost in a very short time is useful for all the reasons you'd expect. The chemistry bench is a great building too. It crafts things more efficiently than a normal mortar and pestle, so you get 1.5x what you'd get if you used a mortar and pestle.The grill and cooker are more afterthoughts that you can worry about when you have the stuff to spare.>>343399>early game XPCrafting rafts (level 16) provides a lot of experience and can throw you up quite a few levels pretty quickly.Crafting stone structures for a base after that is good after.Beyond that, killing an alpha dino gives a LOT of experience, and alpha raptors can be killed with ease with a high level stego, even alpha carnos can be killed with a good stego. Avoid alpha rexes though, they aren't worth it unless you know you can win.Generally, building structures gives a lot of exp, so if you need to level up and you aren't sure what to do, expanding your base or building a new/secondary base with the highest tier structure available is always a good option.Also, narcotics and sparkpowder. Once you have the right tames, you can craft hundreds of those at a time, and if you only have one mortar and pestle, it takes a while, so it gives you passive xp as it crafts and you do other stuff.
What mounts and/or equipment do you guys usually bring into caves? Or do you just put everything into movespeed and corpserun for BPs and artifacts?
Yet another mod update, chaser>>343626Most caves you can run naked just fine, depends on the map
>>343736Updated>>343626I prefer fighting my way, but naked runs work for some of them. The harder caves can't really be ran through like that because you'll get killed really quick, just aren't suitable for running through.For a cave that you want to fight through, most caves have similarly sized entrances, so there are a few dinos that fit in all caves except ones you have to crawl to get in.A raptor pack is good for caving. The boost for the pack leader lets it take out most enemies down there really easily. Keep in mind though, that unridden raptors may jump into water to chase an enemy, so in certain caves where you don't want to risk them falling off an edge or something similar, it may be a better idea to pick different mounts if you can't get others to join you.The baryonyx can also fit in most caves, and is a good fighter. It can run and swim fast, and can heal rapidly by eating fish. The baryonyx is all around a good caving dino that works for all but the hardest caves, so is a good choice if you can get your hands on one.Sabers are another good option. The aren't as strong as a pack of raptors or baryonyx, but they do gather more chitin than most creatures, which the caves are full of. If you don't have a need for chitin though and have plenty of cementing paste, it's not the best option, but it does still work if you're careful or have a pack.Besides those 3, anything you can fit in with 2-3k hp and a saddle should do you pretty well. I rode into caves not too long ago riding a frog with a pike and crossbow. You aren't really limited by much except the size of the entrance, so your best fighter around that can fit should cut it, and you can usually turn around and leave if it goes south.

>Rust so fucking dead it's mentioned only once outside of the OPWhy is this? It seems it could be a fun game but it's so difficult to find anyone worth hanging out with. Anytime I hopped onto the official discord to look for people it was just fucking squeekers calling everyone 'kid'.

How the FUCK do you git gud at building in games? Be it Valheim,or others. I just can't build for shit. I want to make something like pic related.
>>347756I know this feel. I try to do something with a good mix of form and function, but the goddamn function takes over and I build plain boxes.

>>347756When I start I just find a spot with good resources and build a shack, then while progressing I'll build around and expand it. Generally it turns into a nice organic build that doesn't look like the block builds everyone makes and it's always different
>>347724I understand that but you literally can watch your thrall solo every boss in the game, like a pokemom os some shit. Even with this imbalance and the bugs it's the best survival game I ever played.
>>325976I wanna make a new short lasting vm server. Do you guys think rust, valhiem, empyrion, or 7 days to die would be best?
>>348661>short lastingthen go with whatever
what's a good game with similar appeal to minecraft? Space Engineers looked good but I heard it's mostly sandbox with little progression or replayability. multiplayer or not is fine
>>348703Vintage story is the vm approved option. Basically more convoluted slower pace minecraft. Progression is just getting through the metal ages and making cool shit unless you play on the vm server which may or may not still be active. I know the og reopened. If you like space engineers but want more survival, then I would say empyrion is a little better since it has more survival elements and dungeons and shit . It is not as good on the engineering side but making a carrier for your hover tanks and dropships is max comfy.For full on survival, green hell and the long dark do survival better than anyone7days to die or the forest if you like fighting mobs/npcs the mostTerreria if you want to fight bosses and like progressionStarbound if you want a really chill experience. Especially with mods it is comfy. Better for exploration and building than terraria but not as good with bosses or progression.Rust/conan/ark if you just like pvp. These games are all like minecraft factions servers. Build up for a long time then raid when you get the resources then get offlined.
>>348715which one is good for building besides terraria and starbound? and still preferably has progression
Fixed some cases where the Explorer Notes would not unlock properly on the server (to get the first HLNA explorer note, make sure to hit the reset cinematics button in your options - note that you only unlock Explorer Notes once HLNA has finished all her lines.)Fixed a bug where the WorldBuffScalingEfficacy would break harvesting ratesPrevented some Rockwell & Eden variants creatures on Aberration that weren't native to the map (https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/617465-an-update-concerning-genesis-2-r-variants-on-aberration/)Enabled creature downloads on Aberration for the Genesis Part 2 permitted creatures, including Stryder, Maewing, Shadowmane, Noglin, and some R-variants.Fixed multiple level design related bugs such as holes, volumes, and floating folliage.Shadowmane baby food consumption has been reducedFixed a bug where Maewing babies in baskets could be lost on server start upFixed cases where the "hacking" mini game could fail incorrectly when taming the Stryder, and also made it more reliable on all servers. Wildcard pls go
>>348944Valhiem is good for building. Empyrion is okay for building but better for ships or space stations for function. 7 days to die is good if you like building defenses. Vintage story’s chisel and world edit are amazing for building. Raft is alright for building. You could probably find a bit more exploring on steam.
>>349224>>348944Oh but for building and progression. Then eco if you have friends and Valhiem are best
I know it's not exactly to the theme of this board but... what's the best survival game to play singleplayer
>>348517You know, there is this possibility to not use thralls at all.
>>349829green hell is really good
Yet another mini update fucking the game upArk pls
>>326988whenever I feel like making a hunting shack and having a chill time I play the forest. Cannibals add an interesting dimension to it; or you can toggle them off
>>348517Kind of, but I think there were some rebalances done so only the best thralls are absolute murderhobos, and some bosses might still take them down, if you don't heal them and aid them. Now, with better thralls mod you can make a small team of thralls. I like that personally, bring weaker thralls but more of them. And rebalance the damage done to player with settings. But I play solo.>>344825but it looks cute
>>349829Green hell is amazing (Also reply to this if anyone is down to play, I've been dying to do some green hell co op)The forest, the long dark, 7 days to die is alright alone, generation zero has been fun more a looter shooter than actual survival focus. Kenshi is amazing, grounded is alright. Project zomboid is solid alone, valhiem, volcanoids, terreria, starbound, stalker series, stranded deep.Some cheap ones are radiation island, salt, and sir you are being hunted. All really fun and really cheap right now.
>>350188Don't trust cute
>>350188>But I play solo.Do you have recommended settings and mods for playing Conan solo? I like the overall experience, but I just don't feel like I'm getting the values right. I also hate that everything instantly respawns if I close the game and reopen it, but I get why that's the case and it not doing that would probably end up worse.
Speaking of solo conan, what would you lads consider to be good rates for solo/a low population (3 or 4 player) ARK server?
>>350242Yeah, I don't think you can change that, but that shouldn't really be a problem anyway.I don't remember exact numbers, I would need to look them up, but I would advice to reduce damage player takes and increase harvest rate slightly and decrease time it takes to break thralls, and tame pets. Maybe reduce friendly damage done to thralls too.And that's more of a matter of taste, but you might want to reduce claim area, so that when you build something trees and plants don't disappear, creating more of a cozy look, although this also will apply to npc spawn locations so take that into account.
>>350246I think I tried basic x0.50 this and x2 that, and it seemed a little much, so I'll just go a little lighter next time.I love what I can see this game will be for me but I just can't get over that initial hump of learning what to do and not getting stuck trying to build a castle right away out of shitty starting materials in a starting area.

The forest has the best combat, least systems of them. Green hell is my favorite. Okay combat, building basically from a prim survival youtube, still getting updates, and more realistic survival. The long dark is the most survival-y one but the cold and wind slows down the gameplay too much so I burn out of it fast.

It's the most in-depth, has better graphics and plenty of systems with more ship building autism. It's really fun with friends to show off ships to but the survival and single player is lacking.Empyrion has eh ship building. You can do tiers/types. Bases, hover vessels, small vessels, and capital ships. There is some need for different ships, especially if you have weight for like mining, combat, exploration, carriers, etc, but not as much on the building side as space engineers. The survival and exploration is more fleshed out though. With factions, quests, duengons/raids, drones, animals, etc.No Man's Sky has some flashier combat but the least autism building of them.
>>350353It's a sandbox, you do whatever you want.
>>3502453x rates are fun
>>350351Oh yeah, but damage and harvesting rate are things you can and probably should adjust on a fly, when playing solo, because funcom can't balance solo well. Same for purges, but desu, I don't even care about purges until it's the time to complete the Journey step for it and later I only care when I want to test out my base.
>>350690the thing about purges that turns me off is the retarded ai
why did they change it so you can only eat one respec soup per character again
>>330201just the 48% red dit tranny
>>350761that is a server setting
>>350842well yes, but on official you can only eat 1, why
>>350850go ask devs
>>337312The only reason to make a /vm/ server is if we did crazy nonstandard rules like a brutally hard Dark Sun inspired server or something. Otherwise let's just find an active pvp server to play on together.
>>350242You can run your own server locally on an old laptop or something. That's how I play solo.
>>351061>0.25x rates>no taming dinosaurs>no beacons>objective is to kill all the bosses on the island
>>351172>arkyikesi was talking about conan
>>351172He is talking about conanWe already have a /vm/ ark server
This thing keept chasing me and looking at me
>>351525Its coming right for me full of ill intent
Im still on the island. what the fuck. I have the dlc and i have been playing the game for years. Yet here i am still on the same map
>>351532I mean it's the most well developed in terms of bugfixes and QoL and whatnot
>>351532The island is top comfy and the most "dino" experience
>>351763idunno, for me it's The Centergranted it was my first experience with ARK, but damn it has some good areaskinda wish it was considered "canon", big floating island stuff is neat as hell
>>351061>The only reason to make a /vm/ server is if we did crazy nonstandard rules like a brutally hard Dark Sun inspired server or somethingThis is a really good idea and I don't think I've ever seen it done.
>>351530WHY WOULD YOU KILL SUCH A CUTE THING
what map is the server on i dont have any paid dlcs
I got an argy, and now the game is extremely easy. Makes taming everything no challenge at all, I got a couple rexes with no bother. Wtf do I do now that the entire game has lost all it's difficulty?
>>353178kill the overseer
>>353183Is there really only one goal in this game? One boss fight?

OuchFor some reason they stopped eating, there is still food in the pot
>>354660where's our server man...
>>353178for me, ark is a beach bungalow simulator
I didn't even knew tek gigas existed Also game crashed when i tried to craft some summer skin, guess tis nuff ark for today
>>354780i want to cover her in my sticky webbingt. arachnopod
>>354769>>354780>>354879Unfortunately I'm an Oceanicfag so I doubt I can host a server people would care to join.
>>355067that is unfortunate
>>354937come and get it
>>355067We used to have a NY-based server and no one joined eitherThis board is just dead
>>355302We need a LATAM server, no one cares about american anons.
>>355302As I said before, we don't need our own dead server. We should just form a clan on a populated pvp server.
>>355430I'm ok with this, EU player
>>355279love how you can see the tits swaying from behind when you run
>>355570i know yuropoor is cringe but other regions aren't much better
>>355587Me too, usually roll Stygian babe and run around in Stygian medium armor for added effect.>>355570problem?
Gos I fucking hate gachas
>>356057I never fail to get horny while playing. Doesn't help that all my friend's characters are hot too.
>>356057>>356486I played with a male character so I wouldn't have the urge to nut with a female character. Worked for me as well because I self-insert and had a harem of female Cimm berserkers on an official server.
someone wants to start a tribe on pvp?
>>356486why don't you stop being a degenerate faggot?
>>356753Getting horny at attractive females is degenerate now? I've lost touch with the times.
>>356911>attractive females>conanBro, you are playing the wrong gamemod skyrim or something
>>356911>>356911Conan females are dudes with tits
>>356167I kind of too, but what happened to you?>>356965Meh, too much hassle and half the time they look like modern day models, ruining immersion. Conan models are just fine, and there are some mods for the too, if you need. I personally only use IQOL for extra sliders to reduce hand size and increase ass and hip sized.
Imagine playing a video game to get off. Degenerate coomers.
Feeling cute, might make a Conan server. Exiled Lands. Same settings as official PvP except raid windows because they're gay and just make you feel like a slave to the game for 5 hours a day, if you can even be on at those times. I'd use the offline raid protection, but they still haven't fixed it so until then 24/7 raiding. Yeah you'll be offlined, but you can offline other people. Make hidden stashes and outposts.Very light on mods: severe weather to enhance the survival aspect a little and pippi for admin stuff. What do you frens think? I'll put it on the east coast to accommodate the eurofags.
>>357584Dead thread dead game
>>357584exiled lands or siptah ?
>>357955I prefer Exiles Lands >>357584Improved Quality of Life mod would be nice.
>>3575840.5 harvest and 2.0 thrall conversion, make shit spoil faster too
>>357955if you can't read then you aren't allowed on my server>>357959maybe but i don't think so. >>357982do you just not want people to play on the server? it's hard enough to get people without boosting and you want me to make the grind worse?
also forget severe weather. the only mod will be pippi
also I might actually try dynamic building damage (offline raid protection) and if people actually play and there are too many issues with it i'll turn it off. if anyone purposely exploits it then i can just rectify that as admin i guess. i'm thinking your base should remain raidable for 30 minutes after you log out.
>>357584>getting offline'dno thanks
>>358036>if people actually playayyy
>>358050Read the last post
how many players on the conan server?how many on ark?Steam sale is almost over
>>358066Conan can go up to 70 on unofficials, but that's way too packed imo. I'm gonna start the server at 20 and if interest grows past that (lol) I'll add slots.
>>358066Ark is like 2 players but one is busy with stuff and the other one is currently on a mini trip out of the country so can't really ark
Conan server is up:Mayhem PvP (Official Rates, 24/7 Raiding w/ ORP)22.214.171.124:7782Located in US EastPippi is the only modGo nuts. I'll probably advertise it elsewhere to see if we can get more players.
>>358235Oh and max clan size is 5
I don't know if I should get Valheim. I have ADHD and no friends. Is there enough to do in the game? I heard the devs ran with the money and performance is bad. I only have a 760 and i5-4690k.
>>358329Valheim is pixelated garbage. Get Conan
>>358334That's the silly willy flopping game. I watched some and it didn't look interesting to me.
>>358338You can turn off the willies. It's way more interesting than Valheim.
>>358341you only say that because it has booba
>>358401I don't even keep the booba on because I have kids
>>358021>maybe but i don't think so.eh... I might join in anyway, but no promises of being around much.
How's it feel to know that Rust doesn't need this thread and that ARK can only survive in this containment thread? Do you feel the death of this franchise in your bones?
>>358629Rust is a prolonged BR, not a survival game.
>>358629Ark is garbage for children. This is the Conan thread
>>358235what are the rates?
>>358687x1 across the board, just like officials
Conan server owner here. I'm thinking of setting up a short 2 hour raid window one day a week for people to deal with structures they want gone, but can't catch the person online. I also don't want to have to have short decay timers in the case of someone not logging on for a while and having an invulnerable base for a long time. Thoughts? I know that Funcom's intention for offline raid protection is to implement it alongside their raid windows to still allow for offline raiding within those times so I don't think having 1 short window a week should be a big deal.
>>358691do you have any players in
>>358720just 1 other guy who got up to level 30ish. the server just went up so it's gonna take a while to get a population. if you fags wait for more people to play then it probably won't ever happen
>>358688i don't have the time to farm stone at 1x after wageslaving, call me when rates are at least 2x
>>358738They won't ever be 2x, although since late last year 1x is what 2x used to be.
>>358235can we build anywhere? If so I'll just log to claim the obelisk one to just insta win
>>358838Yeah so the solution is either I restrict building or institute daily 1 hour raid windows I guess
>>358629Dunno, I don't play ARK, just Conan, but both ARK and Conan look way more interesting to me compared to Rust. >death of this franchiseYou can play them offline, which I usually do anyway, so there is no ''death''.>>358724I would join in, but I'm kind of busy right now.
>want to reinstall ARK>base game is 120 gigs for a game that looks and runs like poopI'm gonna have to buy a new drive for this shit aren't I
>>359198>looks like poopIf you have a 10 years old GPU maybe
Ark is alive and well
>>359584Ark was so much better before all the scifi shit and retarded "dinos"
>>359632do you even know what Ark is about and what the Arks are
>>359563No, the game looks like poopYou can try and hide it behind some fancy god beams and bloom, but the textures and models look like playdough
>>359665Yes I understand they always intended it to go that way. It was still better before all that shit tho.
>>359782Survival of the Fittest was peak Ark
>>359782>beforeDid you ever made it past lvl 10 on the first map?There is no before unless you choose to ignore everything and RP as a dino breeder using stone tools forever
>>359797Why are you being so autistic? I'm talking about the tek tier. The game was better when rocket launchers were the most powerful weapon. The power creep after they introduced tek got way out of hand.
>>359801You only get tek when you already killed the bosses, ascendant shotguns will do more dmg than tek weapons and dinos are the actual dmg over most situations anyways Tek is just a way to keep game jnteresting when you are "done" with the map, fucking endgame stuff
why are people talking about ark in the conan thread?
Any ideas on how to host or get a server running from a provider for cracked copies? Tried googling and that didn't turn shit up, so I searched through the archives and ended up remembering /vm/ exists.
do any of these survival games have terraforming like wurm online or life is feudal?
>>359632But it always had dinos, no? The whole appeal for me when I first saw was all the prehistoric animals, not just dinos but other ones, older.>>359817It's survival games thread, you tard. We talk about both.
>>359944I think he means the dumb hybrid james cameron-esque avatar 'dinos'
>people cry about there not being a conan server>someone finally makes one>no one plays on ityep this is 4channel
>>360490No one played the first one either
>>360509This board is just dead
>>360502I did, but it got shut down. For current one, I just don't have time now, maybe next week.
Annoying fucking cunts
>buy 7dtd at the tail end of the summer sale>getting the hang of it but not really feeling it>ten hours in and all it has done is make me want to play STALKER or Conan or CDDA insteadAt least it was cheap
>>360520Be the change you want to see in the world. Start threads, reply to posts, engage the community.
>>362524>shot it in the face>wood terminatorJesus christ
>>362524>>362529ark is such an ugly game. wish it would die already
>>362918This anon is such an ugly faggot. wish it would die already
Going all-out on a Valheim settlement. What should I include to be a real viking? Only ideas I've had so far are>Stone walls>Training range w boulder and birch tree>Farm fields>Dining hall/throne room/trophy hall>Treasure/storage vault>Portal room>Dock>Moat with stakes>Blacksmith>Carpenter/tanneryNot sure on other ideas. Bridge over a creek? Access to multiple biomes?
been playing conan on official 1544. good times.
>>362962Vikings didn't did all that faggy shit.Just invade some town pillage and rape everything and set whatever remains on fire
>>362985pvp or pve ?
>>363190pvp of course. imagine playing on an official pve server.
>>363196nicewagecucking in the summer heat leaves me unable to play conan atm sadly
>>363196What do you do on pvp servers?Both conan and ark
>>363481whatever the fuck you want dude
Does Steam Family sharing even work anymore for Unofficial servers? I'm hosting my own from a VPS, and friends are telling me its coming up with the usual error when joining an Official server.

It's over survivalbros. These threads had a good run, but they are no longer sustainable. Sage in peace.
it's /vm/, this is a slow board
>>366502>0,5ppmThreads here last literal months
Big s+ update, adds most of the new buildings and some other stuff.I also noticed that the server was displaying offline even while I was logged in and playing and I looked into it a bit, it seems that the ip has changed for some reason. I don't have any idea why and if I cared I could probably open a ticket, but the current ip to join is 126.96.36.199:29851
>>366967I expected it to be some update issue Don't seem to be able to connect to this new ip either
>>367042I can join through the join button at the new battlemetrics link for the new iphttps://www.battlemetrics.com/servers/ark/12204307The join link should work with steam://connect/188.8.131.52:29851Just connected using that, so I'm not sure why it wouldn't work for you.
>>367065Because it changed the port Now it should werk
>>366502slow threads are betterAnyway, I wonder if there are less Chinese cheaters on Conan servers now...

how active is the ark server?
see this? this thing is the cause of all my pain and suffering.i died THREE times trying to get food for this faggot all thanks to artifical difficulty server crashes.
any terraria servers?the last server I played on was from here around when 1.4 dropped and it was pretty comfy, took like a week before we progressed to moonlord
>>374476it doesnt even seem like people participate in this thread aside from 1 guy

>>373395Yes.New Conan server incoming. Gonna be default rates PvE-C (pvp always on, just no raiding because it's ass in Conan) with extra hard purges.
So I learned about icarus and got excited to play a new crafting survival game to only learn that they pushed it back. But now I have the itch to play again.What are some suggestions of a fun game? I've played 7 days to die and valhiem, I am really craving a new game.
