    Things that aren't terribly neat: They've changed around how mods work, but none of the stickied threads in their modding section have up-to-date information in their ops. I just want to mod my wheat so that it gives me wheat 100% of the time when I harvest it.

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    Thoughts on the patch:

    Ore seems a bit more balanced now. two trips across planets while exploring, and one trip underground to mine have provided me enough ore to build the First Tier of racial armor, as well as pick upgrades and such.

    Managed to find a fire scimitar that seems very powerful. The burning effect is really strong. Also got a gun drop (the earliest I've ever seen one) of a remarkably effective Avian machine pistol. Think I'm ready for the UFO now.

    There's no plan, there's no race to be run

    So

    Mining in underground sand caves? SO PROFITABLE! Wow!

    Anyway, I have my iron armor, my silver pick. Need some better weapons then the server to go back up and it'll be time to face the UFO and build my house

    I can't remember who posted the link to the music files for playing music. Can whomever repost it? I lost my link and found a Keytar.

    I seem to be getting useful stuff from random chests too, not just crappy weapons.

    I saw a mod last night that fixes wheat and also adjusts crop growing times. I don't remember the full name but you should be abke to find it using SemBalance. I currently have the HalfSembalance version on my server.

    Also, there's the Persistent Farmables mod which keeps crops growing when you're not around.

    Newbie here. On the lowest difficulty level, the only penalty for dying is a loss of pixels, right? Where does it tell you how many pixels you've lost from a death? I just had a sequence of hilarious deaths to acid rain and snowstorms as I learn the game, but I haven't noticed anything prominent telling me what I've been losing.

    I used to be really uptight about losing SO MANY pixels to death. Then I discovered the refinery and realized I could turn all my leftover ore into cash. It's like J.G. Wentworth was programmed into the game.

    I think I'll have to get further into the game before this bothers me. Losing 30% of Not Much is not much at all, but a percentage-based loss sounds really really harsh once you've progressed further into the game.

    I take it there's nothing like a corpse run you can do to get some of the 30% back?

    I took out the UFO with a regular bow, and I didn't even die. I also didn't know what the distress signal did, so I was completely unprepared.

    It isn't a problem at all late game. I get so much ore that I can bust out 20k pixels at anytime I please. Also you can use a pixel compressor to basically bank your cash so pixel loss is a very minor punishment.

    Im so DEEP right now. I decided to jsut keep mining down. Im in a slime and poison layer right now. Survival questionable.

  • JeixJeix Registered User regular
    I think once the server is back up I might make a warehouse building in the main base with things like a refinery, wiring station, and pixel compressor for anyone to use.

    Quick PSA about the "portable pixel printer". If you're like me, you may have thought that this was simply a portable 3D printer. It's not!

    It's an item that you consume to expand the recipes you can make without a crafting table (i.e., simply by pressing "c"). Some of the recipes are extremely useful. For one, you can finally make metal platforms. On top of that, you can also make "nano-wrap bandages", which are better than normal bandages. There's an assortment of metal blocks/bricks, a "nano-burner" stove/light combo, and more. Super easy to make, and well worth it. As the name implies, many of the things you can craft only take pixels.

    So if all these mods are added to the server, does that mean I'd have to download them too to play on it? I'm not too psyched about modding a game that is still in beta and hasn't even been out for 2 months.

    If thats why I cant join the server, them I just.. wont.

    Because, yeah, modding a game in beta makes me uncomfortable.

    But first the server needs \to be UP

    I am taking this time to sort out all my hoarding in a single players session. Turns out I have 23 varieties of seeds, I should start a farm. I also uploaded every furniture thing I have found to my 3d printer, that took a lot of pixels.

    No, you don't have to use the mods. But people who want to, can. And we can see their mods. At least that's how I understand it.

    I'm literally adding Race mods (that dont add unbalanced crazy items), and the firefly compatibility mod right now.

    I'd add the toolbox/vault mod, but they are basically just "heres cosmetic items... oh yeah have super weapons right away too" and I am avoiding the second part. Maybe we modify to only let the cosmetic items get made?

    Also I realize this means we need a mod/race list for those who want to try other stuff. I'll get a list together shortly for the op/website so everyone knows what they have access to grab.

    I can't scout this thread all the time for mod requests, so please steam message me, or PM me if you want something. :D

    Correct. There are also some mods that players can benefit from without downloading the mod themselves. Thise are mainly mechanic changing mods like SemBalance (changes crop times) and Hunt 4 Meats (which causes hunted critters to drop bacon and ribs as well as leather and meat). If you don't have a mod and someone creates an item from that mod it's supposed to appear invisible to you.

    Ok, so mods by and large just aren't working, there was some sort of hotfix that happened today(I think? I had to update the server at least), and it broke a ton of shit. The firefly mod will crash the server if installed, along with some of the Race mods :P

    I'm disabling all of them until I can test them during non peak time. :P

    There's also no actual word if the PAK system made it in, which would ensure compatibility between players when you connect(requiring some downloads for stuff). their notes from a few weeks ago said it would be in, but the notes now dont mention it, and of course, 0 documentation beta :lol:

    I'm pretty sure the .pak system is in, it's just a matter of making sure your .modinfo points to the .pak instead of just a directory.

    Did the server just get a population cap? Or is this my first time running into it. Probably needed either way. Also I have decided that skyrails are the greatest thing ever.

    Defense turrets as far as the eye can see.

    I'm going to take it down for a bit, so I can get the automation working without having to run the script through ssh, I believe thats the issue that is happening nightly.


    There shouldn't be a cap at all. I think they introduced more memory leaks and its causing issues with the server.

    Edit: OK! Server is running. If the VPS is running, the server should be running like normal again. Looks like the provider had hardware issues.

    I'm going to force reboot the server in the morning to enable some config changes. somehow a 8 person cap got set.
