Hello Distant Stars players!!!

We are pleased to start promoting a community around the mod we love to create and you love to play!

This topic is to help promote online play. No matter what you play, PvP, PvAI or PvPvAI! We will be having regular game times for everyone to gather and join up playing Distant Star!

The meeting place for setting up any Distant Stars game is currently Channel 'Distant Stars' on ICO. Once your there feel free to set up games among each other! Another thing we would like to promote is using Distant Stars in your game name. For example here are some game names: Distant Stars 1, Distant Stars 2, etc etc. You are all smart people.

A Quick Rundown:
Where:
Ironclad Online (ICO) the ChannelDistant Stars; Also our Teamspeak channel.
When:
WHENEVER!

 

Teamspeak:

We have recently started using Teamspeak to exapand the fun we can have. We encourage you to drop in and socialize with us! Any questions about the status of the channel can be directed to -Ue_Carbon.

TS SERVER INFO:

Address- 69.61.15.106

Port- 4293

Channel- Sins of a Solar Empire

 

Also we would like to get a list of ICO players names so we can all add each others as friends, to set up games beyond the set game time listed above.

Current ICO Players Names:

Ryat
-Ue_Carbon
  Pbhead
Draakjackt
Oranos
Roesh Free Traders
Syneptus
Vonlesto
{SB}=>Dead_rat
{SB}=>Warfleet
Mr.G

Feel free to post up game time beyond the current set times, and letting us know your ICO name so we can add you to the list!!! We will hopefully see some of you ingame!!!

 Warning:

Be sure to turn your graphics settings down to lowest and turn off all of the special effects like bloom and skyboxes...  You're dealing with net traffic and other people's computers so to avoid unnecessary desyncs or disconnects, do your part and turn everything down.

We also suggest you Trim your Empire Tree to reduce mid-end game lag. Play with only the minimum ammount in your Empire Tree as you need!

I just wanna remind everyone that if you cant make any of the dates above dont worry The times above will be the set schedule for future weekends. Every weekend 1 of those sets of time will be when we will try to get as MANY players together online. We figured if we gave set time for every weekend from here on out it would allow people to plan ahead and make time their busy lifes for a day of Distant Stars.

 

I for one know Im not gonna make most of those day, currently. Though Im trying to work it in to be online as many time as I can. If nothing else to direct everyone the Channel and help with any checksum problems. Till we all get in the habit of playing with each other and such.

Im totally down for a game of Distant Stars. I will be home all day as I have the day off. So if any one wants to game just send me a message.

Also I use the Dynamic Movement mod found in the extras folder. I love it, cant play without it. Will people be using that as well or just strait up Distant Stars?

a good question TheKnave, some do like the DM but others dont (Me and Carbon dont) so you would have to talk with the ones you are playing against if they want it

me personally would love a round with the Powerful Pirates in play

Hehe May have to make a few unique ones for us to use rather than the same one with different names just so you can tell us all apart easier

Should be interesting to see the games tonight, I may be there but seeing as im in the UK it may be a little late/early for me we'll see

Hehe, indeed.  Perhaps have different planet types for each DS Team member to showcase the exotic planet diversity of the mod.

Also, hope to see you there!

What version of the mod are you guys using and is it necessary to download any custom maps ahead of time?

We will be using the latest version for Entrechment. All the custom maps are already added to the mod folder.

 

The checksum should be 36295747.

Quoting DirtySanchezz,

We'll be using the latest version of the official release 0.95, although at the moment Advent Carriers will cause a minidump in the current public version so you may need to be careful of playing with AI Advent/Human advent players 'til the next patch is released in a few days.

What does that mean?  If you're Advent you cannot build carriers?  Can you build Halcyons?
