New ideas for public servers?[marked]
« on: April 20, 2016, 09:28:14 PM »

I see that pathea created 4 new public servers for mode: survive adventure,vs, coop story mode and coop adventure. But in my opinion at least 2 others is necessary to use this game at his full potential: BUILD and "Adventure, VS, with infinite resources"!  ;D

With build players can:

-build anything they want with INFINITE resource  in coop mode (building and isos) and save locally the creations, this will improve the use of the editor.
-organizing car/boat/plane racing with vehicles created via creation editor (only in this game this is possible) WITHOUT spend time to mine resources! (i'm working all day...i can't use too much time in this game)

Whit adventure mode,versus and infinite resources modality players can also create innovative FPS games (mining is only a waste of time in this case) with weapons created via creation editor. Also vehicles can combat...or also combat and race (similar to the game Road Rush)...and many other ideas will come! :D

If you dont want to create this i will try this idea with a private VPS with PE server installed...but in my opinion if Pathea directly implement these ideas will be better! :)

Actually... while I have played multiplayer games, I've yet to play PE in multiplayer. So, do take this with a grain of salt...

I have checked out the server list out of both curiosity and a need to use the Steam Workshop. And even during peak hours, I don't recall seeing more than maybe 3 players on an official server - usually the Adventure Coop server. (That's pretty sad, IMO. :( It should be more popular than this.)

As such, I can't imagine that Build Mode would be popular enough to warrant hosting it as an official server. Personally, Build Mode feels like one huge cheat. And a very boring one, at that, since there are no animals, Pujans, or NPCs. But I do appreciate it for how easy it makes it for us to test out ISOs we create and modify.

As far as I'm aware, "Adventure, VS, with infinite resources" is a mode that does not currently exist. (Or does it? ???) That said, despite how I think that sounds incredibly similar to Build Mode, I believe Pathea will eventually get around to making that.

I say that because one of the Kickstarter goals was to add difficulty settings. A lot of players have been begging for things like permanent death and otherwise making the game harder. But if when they finally add a "hard setting", I'm sure they'll also add an "easy setting", probably with infinite resources.

Granted, this is just one player's opinions. And I am quite biased as I always despised 'versus' in First Person Shooters (or anything outside the Strategy genre, actually). Also, while I really enjoy sandbox games, playing P.E. as Versus with infinite resources sounds a lot like the FPS genre, which is not my favorite genre. (That said, I have some fond memories of old classics like Wolfenstein, Quake, Doom, and C&C Renegade.)

conversely i'm a great fan of FPS games (but also of sandbox games) and i think that a FPS with custom guns and arenas will be very innovative! (expecially in the modern market where this gendre is becoming very casual with numerous useless limitations (only two weapons for any time  :D, pay to win business, ect... :D )

According to you... i also think (this is sad part... i managed a minecraft server with mods that operated in a similar manner) that this modality will not be followed by the most of the public that love games like COD, BF, Halo or the new Doom (in other terms and in my opinion...shxt!  :D) but i want to play a similar game and find some new followers to this idea (that can also bring new players to the game... this modality also don't require anti griefing tools... is this for me the main reason to PE servers are empty)

Here a video of the minecraft server that i want to recreate with Planet Exploers:
