[Dark & Light] It's fantasy ARK, basically.

Welcome ! :D So what is Dark & Light you ask?



Dark & Light is a survival Sandbox in the vein of Ark, as in it's basically the same company. What is different here? Well ! It is set in a Fantasy world of dragons, giants, goblins, elves and dwarves. It has less of the weirdness that Ark has with its sort of sci-fi end-game stuff, it has NPC's with shops and their own towns with quests like an RPG. Basically, if you liked Ark you will probably enjoy what is to offer here, especially so if (like me) you didn't like Ark's end game sci-fi stuff or setting very much. If you are going to buy the game I highly suggest you install it to an SSD. You will save yourself a lot of headaches. This game is in early access, so of course expect a few patches and the occasional broken patch as well.

This video basically explains most of it:

Steam link to purchase.

Do we have a server for PA?

Well, Sort of ! I have started and am hosting my own 24/7 server as of posting this thread. Server may go through hiccups as the game is still in Early Access, and whatever bugs come with that.

    Oh god it's like they made this game specifically for me.

    Gonna be picking this up, wonder if I can copy my canyon fortress idea from Conan into this. Only with dragons.

    I like this game a lot! I picked it up on Saturday and it's ridiculously pretty, though still unoptimized and you need a pretty solid PC to get the pretty as a result.

    It's hilarious to me that this is even slightly related to the super bad 2006 Dark and Light, but they're completely different games. The marketing has been sort of wacky as a result, but it seems like the steam reviews are finally starting to recover as people realize what the game actually is.

    The most important thing to know is that goblins are death.

    How are the tame times in this game? What torpedoed ark for me was how they kept "increasing the difficulty" which was just code words for not increasing the difficulty at all and instead just increasing tame times by another order of magnitude.

    Default settings for taming are in the ballpark of Ark, the plus side being that it has the exact same server modifiers as Ark -- it's really easy to tweak it to whatever rate you want in singleplayer or on a private server.

    Been watching BikeMan play this (they seem to be switching between Citadel & D+L), and my god is it gorgeous, but damn does it look like they have to work on the animations/netcode/etc. to make it not look a bit janky. The skill system looks neat, and the fantasy aesthetic is really nice.

    Because there are a lot of people who are very averse to PvP in this type of game (including me!), I wanted to share the info for the forumer-oriented PvE server I'm hosting too:

    Name: PADarkandLight
    Password: The standard forum one IN ALL CAPS (early access weirdery means passwords only work in all caps) -- shoot me a message if you're unsure
    IP: 107.142.164.107
    Type: PvE
    Faction: Elf
    1.5x EXP
    1.5x Resource Gathering
    5x Taming
    2x Spoil time
    .5x Hunger/Thirst drain

    A very important thing to note, is that as of right now different factions cannot be in the same House (ie guild) together. It may be added at some point, but you're not allowed to interact with humans or dwarves as an elf, and so on and so forth. As such, I strongly recommend being an elf
    as this is a PvE server. If you hate elves, the character creator lets you make your elf as tall, short, bearded or clean faced as you would like, and you can very easily make a not-elf that is technically an elf. As a consolation prize, the elf starting area is incredibly pretty:
    ?interpolation=lanczos-none&output-format=jpeg&output-quality=95&fit=inside|2048:1152&composite-to%3D%2A%2C%2A%7C2048%3A1152&background-color=black

    As the Ark/Dark and Light server browser is fairly terrible, the easiest way to join the server is to open steam, click the "view" button on the top left and hit "servers". Click the favorites tab, hit "add a server" in the bottom right, and type in the IP. It should populate with the name PADarkandLight, and you can join through that server browser.

    I increased taming speed by 3x on my server, I can increase it more if people want. Everything is increased on my server by a little bit to make things less painful. I can also change any other settings as people want, I can make it a PvE server or keep it PVP as it is now. It's up to you all.

    I don't have a PC powerful enough to run either Citadel or D&L, but I find it interesting how they've both entered EA at about the same time.

    I have to wonder which will make it out of EA first, or end up with the largest player-base, being so (seemingly? IDK) similar.

    The race/house thing is pretty stupid. I went dwarf because well, it's a fantasy game where you can build castles, you bet your ass I'm going to build a literal dwarf fortress.

    I dunno if people want to stick with elf or come be dwarfs or whatever, I do have a manor with bedrolls, cooking fire, mortar and pestle and a sheep making "fur" (the game must mean wool right?) already set up.

    I'm pretty sure the race thing is the foundation of PvP in this -- it's a 3 way faction vs. faction vs. faction. But they should totally let you join up on PvE servers regardless of race, hopefully that gets patched in soon! I tested it with Kooleagle this weekend and no dice -- I teleported his human character to me and it wouldn't let me bring up the interact menu with him.

    I would assume you can only trade with your own race's NPCs too, but I haven't tested that.

    I was reading the forums a bit today, and it sounds like there's a fair amount of stuff that is broken in singleplayer, but works in multi. It sounds like shapeshifting is wonky, item drops may be acting up, and you can't tame Elementals and other stuff that requires you to tame them by killing/capturing in a stone instead of the standard grappling arrows method.

    Hooray early access!

    I might be joining you guys in this game this week, it looks exciting.

    EliminationFiatil
  • NorgothNorgoth cardiffRegistered User regular
    So few things I've learnt playing this that might come in handy

    Picks used on boulders give sulphur, you need an axe to get stone. Picks give the copper and iron when used, axes always give stone so I'm guessing that's "pick gives specific resources" is the logic.

    The scythe gives fur when used on corpses. It gives straw/thatch/whatever it's called when used on shrubs. Spears give bone, swords meat, throwing daggers give hides.

    Swords on shrubs gives grass, picks on trees give the rope stuff, staffs give a little of everything plus magic shards.

    When using a recipe that needs a bottle, you have to fill it with water first.

    Melee is real wonky atm, but magic and range works perfectly fine. Arrows do more damage than the basic fireball, and most monsters can be strafed a little. Except panthers who will murder you and your family.

    There is no thatch stairs. Most monsters can wreck thatch though.

    Beds are not respawn points, you have to build a ressurection alter for that.

  • FiatilFiatil Registered User regular
    Yeah, the melee definitely has fairly small hitboxes, and the 3rd person makes it tougher. I've been able to adapt to it by watching the animation pretty closely -- the swing has a wind up, and if you aim to swing through the center of whatever you're fighting you can hit it reliably. I wandered around swording rabbits to death for awhile last night and it worked pretty well.

    Kiting in general is super useful of course, except for the demon panthers.

    Steam:Fiatil
  • TheKoolEagleTheKoolEagle Registered User regular
    So I logged in last night to an ent inside my base, he then began to swing and destroy the whole thing. Another ent came and helped smash it all to bits. While I am watching in horror, a goblin sneaks up behind me and knocks me out, stealing all my gear. Then a panther came and ate me.

    I decided maybe the game was telling me that was a bad place to make my house.

    So I'm Evidar in game, so me and Elim just did a little adventure. Tamed a boat, mounted it and promptly got it killed. We've got a small village in the works, and we're right next to a ton of basic resources so we're getting stuff done. We've formed a dwarven clan on Elims server, either of us should be able to invite, I think I set it right.

    Also it's a little weird how stairs are a tier 2 building part, but so are ladders, which considering they make base design easier and theoretically PVP seem light a straight upgrade.

    This looks interesting. I will definitely be keeping an eye on it. But 30% is a little too early for me. Especially if optimization is as poor as reported.

    I love the craft/build/survive genre and I'm still looking for that "perfect game." The fantasy setting is appealing and if they lean more towards PVE in the long run, this game might hold potential.

    I honestly do not understand why this genre is so obsessed with PVP. You know what my favorite game in genre has been so far? Dragon Quest Builders. Because it is entirely PVE.

    But that game has a lot of flaws of its own, and I know the genre can produce better.

    So anyway... Dark and Light. When you say it's basically the same devs as ARK, does that mean Wildcard? Or do you mean same publisher?

  • DisrupterDisrupter Registered User regular
    People like pvp because in theory fighting other players in a war for resources is fun. Building your base with defense in mind to defend against attackers is fun.

    In practice you wake up and 3 days of work us gone. And it's awful.

    It's the same publisher, and the game is clearly built on some fork of the Ark engine -- the publisher bought Wildcard in 2015, so probably some point around then. As far as I can tell no one's totally sure how involved Wildcard is, but it seems like they are helping out with development at least.

    I wouldn't mind the PVP if it was actual player versus player, as in people fighting each other.

    But in practice, that isn't what happens. What really happens is offline raids, griefing, and the same general douchebaggery that happens across all genres of games.

    I wish people would fight like gentlemen in PVP. Then I might actually enjoy it.

    Server is back! It's been updated with all of the hotfixes from this week, and I migrated it from the 60 gig install (only way to do it at launch) to the new 3 gig dedicated server client they released, meaning future updates will be much quicker.

    Updating the server fixed the really annoying issue where your character model would constantly try to face the wrong direction, and I am now happy again.

    Bug Fixes

    General:

    Resetting Potion - Using it will no longer reset your unlocked Schematics.
    Wall of Lightning - Schema crafting requirements, damage tick frequency, and spell duration have all had their values corrected.
    Spider Web - Players can now move immediately after casting.
    Firestorm - Fixed damage against metal structures.
    Fertilizer - Fixed a bug where fertilizer would disappear from a crop plot after a short period of time.
    War Flag - Fixed a bug where, occasionally, after making a war declaration, the House that received the declaration would not be able to damage the declaring House’s structures.
    Framework Triangle Foundation - Corrected HP values.
    Stone and Iron Pickaxe and Axe - Improved hit detection, making it easier to gather from smaller resource nodes without needing to crouch.
    War Declaration - Fixed incorrect War Declaration time, now persists through server restarts. Fixed an issue where one House was unable to attack another even after receiving a War Declaration.
    Focusing Potion - Fixed a bug where it was uncraftable if learned after level 10.
    Bedrolls - Can now be picked up after placing and will retain durability usage.
    Parachute - Fixed a bug where players were still taking full fall damage even when using a Parachute.
    Dragon Transports - Temporarily removed Estel and Ironfast’s Dragon Transports while the system is redesigned.
    Wall Torch - Fixed a bug where Wall Torches would defy all logic and expand to dozens of times their original size when demolished.


    NPCs:

    Guards - Fixed a bug where Guards would occasionally spawn with only 1 HP. Can now actually look up and target / attack flying creatures.
    NPC Vendors - Now respawn in their set location within their city after a set period of time after being killed.


    The Sacred Path:

    Adjusted terrain in a number of locations around The Sacred Path where characters and creatures were getting stuck. This patch is focused mainly on the area around Ironfast.
    Fixed issues with floating foliage in a number of locations around The Sacred Path.


    Creatures:

    Fixed a bug where a character dismounting from certain creatures would allow them to clip through walls.
    Longhorn, Hellcat, and Infernus Dragon - Fixed a bug where these creatures would move backwards when using their normal attack while riding them. Power attacks still have this issue, and will be fixed in a future patch.
    Frost Dragon - Fixed a bug where Frost Dragons could be ridden without a saddle.
    Light Elemental - Fixed a bug where Light Elementals could be equipped with a saddle.


    Graphical:

    Made adjustments to the Female Guard Armor and Male Traveler Suit models.


    Note: we're aware that there are still some issues with the Quest system, and we appreciate your feedback thus far. We're working on those bugs and we'll have a fix out as soon as possible.

    Two of the highlights being:
    • Evades (crouch + movement direction) - Added a forward evade and improved animations for all evades.
    • Added Health and Mana bars when targeting creatures, NPCs, and other players.

    Also noteworthy:
    • Infernus Dragon - Added spell damage resistance and fire damage immunity. Temporarily removed Flame Breath attack. Reduced respawn rate.

    Because the predominant PvP meta up until this point appears to be "use glitches to get through walls and raid protection, burn everything alive with dragonfire" -- dev commentary says they took out the dragon's breath for now until they can get it all under control. Hooray official PvP servers!

    Just updated my server, aaand it's good to go.

    Edit: Wow, the targeting is cooler than I had hoped for. You can actually see the levels of creatures from far away! One of my biggest unaddressed complaints in Ark.
