Multiplayer colonies.[marked]
« on: November 21, 2016, 11:17:22 AM »

Hi guys. Been playing on one of the official servers and been having fun. Recently started a colony and wondering how to get another human player(s) to join my colony. Is this even possible or are colonies only for NPC's and one human player.

You can join a colony using teleport.

Open map "M"
click the colony and click the button to teleport (costs credits)

Oooooh. Nice. Going to try it now.

Just before I do, can you share the assembly core with someone else that you have teamed up with?

In all co-op modes (story, and adventure), there can only be one colony, and everyone is automatically teamed.
In vs mode, there is a set amount of teams when the server is created, and each team can have their own colony. You choose which team to be on before entering the server.
In Survival mode, everyone can create their own colony, and no one is teamed. You can create a team in survival mode, but it is pointless, because you do not share the colony with each other. Only the creator of the colony can access the machines.

Is this currently considered an issue to be fixed or intended behavior?  It would be great to be able to share colony buildings with team members in survival mode.

This is not planned now, for we've once tried to design the way as you said, but it'll cause a lot of other problems and exceptions in game. Like, what if both of the players have their own colony and they want to be in one team? That why we designed it this way.

I would expect that either player could use the resources of either colony and that would be the advantage of federating colonies.  They would have to respect such access to maintain such a partnership.  Perhaps even a limited functionality like only being able to repair ISOs at an allied colony would make an alliance feel good.  Ideally of course, it would be nice if players could set the terms of a federation with a checkbox list such as:

Share raw materials
Share tools
Repair ISO
Share ISO
Modify Colony Structures
Modify Colonist Jobs
