    How many people have been tested to be able to join a single server? What is a realistic server capacity at this point?

    It should be, thats the whole reason im making starbards.net lol D:

    --

    Most everything we have seen in streams should already be available unless something broke horribly we dont know about [possible].... Also molly confirmed for me that there will be windows/linux dedicated server executables.

    Player limit is unknown, they are most likely at least shooting for 40 i would think...? Hopefully higher, but its beta so whatever limit we find is whatever it will be 8D

    Multiple sources say the netcode is nice, and multiplayer is smoooooth so assuming there are no bugs in-game that cause immediate hard server crashes.. you should potentially be able to fill up to at least 40 i would think before something shows. I could be wrong, and it highly depends on the net code and what kind of support options are on the back end for server.

    But if all else fails at least we know it can handle 10.. xD

    Lore and cultural differences, eventually their quests. Right now the differences in armor and clothing are aesthetic.
    When the beta's out!

    Characters are saved locally.

    Oh, that I'm not too sure about. I'll see if we're sticking the soundtrack in with the rest of the download. :eek:

    Nope, not yet. Hopefully real soon.

    It is! You just need to find an instrument.

    Oh... *throws his pokeballs back in the bag*

    Wait, what about the pets? Are these already in or they depend on the same system?

    Questions:

    How will updates be handled? Will there be a launcher that checks for updates or will we have to download a new update each time?

    Will we have to make an account, and will character names be saved. (example there can only be one "Ghostar" or can anyone make a "Ghostar")

    When can we have the secret staff server with a pizza party?

    You mentioned before that characters we make in the Beta will be deleted on other updates, can you shed some light on why exactly? I mean if tech is changed I guess it would make sense you would need to change the model I suppose, this is mostly me being curious.

    Automatic updates!
    You won't need to make an account.
    Sure.
    Characters may be deleted because they may become incompatible with updates.

    But once we are out of beta, no fear of them being deleted from that point onward?

    What time of day and time zone is the beta being unlocked on steam and the keys being mailed out? Should we stay up all night Tuesday night or just wait until Wednesday afternoon?

    Hey, December 4th is my birthday, EXCELLENT.

    Ok, my question is about the tiers: how many hours can we expect of gameplay going from tier to tier? And if we all start on a danger level 1 planet will that contain most of the material and gameplay for tier 1+ or will you have to travel to completely transition from tier 1 to tier 2?


    TIER.

    Will saves, worlds, and characters be saved across the steam cloud, to the computer itself, or to the account associated with the save, character, or world? I use multiple devices, so cloud or account saving would be extremely useful. Thanks Molly, I'm super hyped about this game!
