This is just to test out Starbound multi-player. Travis's connection is a bit slower. When we run the official server I might host it as I have a lot more up than him.

Thanks for doing this Travis, how hard was setting it up?

Very easy. Just forward a port and start it up. The password is just a matter of changing the config file.

And Blue_Element reports no lag, so maybe it's you! :)

Maybe it is!

Just FYI, there are currently some version issues. The game updated but it doesn't appear the server executable updated to the new version. I'm trying to figure that out.

OK apparently it updated while the server was running and just didn't bother to tell me about that.

Hopped on the server last night although, sadly, I was alone. ; ;

I'm guessing we all spawn on different worlds? Because the one I started on seemed like it was completely untouched, including a chest that was fairly close to the spawn point and still had loot in it. It also had a really cool underground base that I had fun looting and killing all the inhabitants of. I didn't get to fully explore it because my inventory filled up and I had decided to leave and come back later. Lots of awesome decorative items in there! When the game gets closer to release I really look forward to building some more permanent structures.

The last balancing patch seems to have worked pretty well. The amount of damage I was dealing (and taking) felt fair and reasonable. The amounts of Ore I was finding seemed good too with the exception of coal. It's not that I didn't find any coal at all, I just didn't get to fill up my fuel very much at all after I was done crafting torches and whatnot. Seeing as i can't use wood for fuel anymore that is kind of a drag.

Over all I'm very impressed with the game and especially with Chucklefish for making so many improvements on the game so rapidly. It still has a long ways to go but so far I'm very pleased.

Random observation: Last night I encountered a bird type monster whose attack consisted of vomiting blood on me... >.<

No wood for fuel anymore? I guess you can make coal now but its 10 => 1 which is really silly expensive.

Hey sorry, this has been down for a while. Not sure how long or why. I'll keep it up a little while longer.
