If we have more than 4, we will split into several crews.

Make sure to check the game on the Microsoft store app prior to community night to see if there is an update that needs to be downloaded/installed by the store app!  Also, if you buy the game through the Microsoft store on either the PC or Xbox, you can install and play it on both the PC and Xbox One simultaneously.

7 Days to Die is a zombie apocalypse survival game with some crafting/building, similar to The Forest. We have a server running for it that will switch save games between community nights and the times in between to keep the community night save game from progressing further without those who are more likely to play only on those nights while still allowing others to play outside of community nights with full progression for that save game.  As long as you play outside of 7 PM Wednesday to 2 AM Thursday, you will not disturb the community night save game.  The name of our server is [OSF] Died in the Dell and can be found by searching the in-game server browser for [OSF]. Do not use the external STEAM server browser to join the server as it does not work properly.

 

You can buy 7 Days to Die for $25 and find more information about it here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die/

 

Although there is in-game voice communication, we will also meet in a Discord Game Lobby and use that instead.

Since this night was originally supposed to be 7D2D, the game might reset sooner rather than later, and it is less than 24 hours from a horde night, we are going to keep this Wednesday as a 7D2D community night. 7 Days to Die is a zombie apocalypse survival game with some crafting/building, similar to The Forest. We have a server running for it that will switch save games between community nights and the times in between to keep the community night save game from progressing further without those who are more likely to play only on those nights while still allowing others to play outside of community nights with full progression for that save game.  As long as you play outside of 7 PM Wednesday to 2 AM Thursday, you will not disturb the community night save game.  The name of our server is [OSF] Died in the Dell and can be found by searching the in-game server browser for [OSF]. Do not use the external STEAM server browser to join the server as it does not work properly.

 

You can buy 7 Days to Die for $25 and find more information about it here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die/

L4D2 server down for the time being
Posted on Friday May 17, 2024

Valve did an update to fix some server crash exploits for Left 4 Dead 2. This update causes Sourcemod to now crash the server. Sourcemod was updated to fix this issue, but the current version of Windows Sourcemod also give as Trojan warning. The Linux version is perfectly fine, but unfortunately, our servers use Windows. This has been brought to the attention of the Sourcemod developers, but so far, they have not commented or updated it to fix this issue. Therefore, our L4D2 servers will unfortunately be out of commission along with community nights for the game until this gets sorted out.

Battlefield 3 Private Server Up for Testing
Posted on Friday May 10, 2024

If you did not see this note in Discord, the Battlefield 3 private server that we will use Sunday night for our community night (and for LAN/WAN parties) is up and running for you to test your connection to prior to Sunday.

BF3 Sunday Community Night & Play Test, on sale for $6
Posted on Thursday May 09, 2024

Time: 9:00 PM Eastern (8:00 PM Central, 7:00 PM Mountain, 6:00 PM Pacific)

 

Battlefield 3 is a large-scale modern warfare game. The game has decent bots to supplement real players, so if we do not have many players, the game is still playable. We will be playtesting it on our own private server on Sunday night. This is an attempt to try to get everyone in possession of the game while it is dirt cheap and sorted out in terms of joining our server prior to our summer LAN party where we will be playing it. If you have any issues, we will get it working for you on Sunday night. If you do not own the game, see the link below to buy the premium edition on EA games. If you own it on STEAM, you should go through the instructions below to use Venice Unleashed. If it does not work, you should buy it through EA Games where many of us have confirmed it to work. Make sure you have the premium edition in any case as it greatly expands the maps available to us.

Here are the instructions to get it working with Venice Unleashed. If you do own the game through STEAM, you should uninstall it from STEAM and install it through EA Games and follow the process at the link below.

Since we finished Tribes of Midgard, we will be revisiting Torchlight II in the short term in its place.

There is a mod that allows us to play with 8 players. We will be playing it for our Wednesday community night this week, and it is currently on sale for $4 on GOG if you do not already have it. You will need to sign up for a Runic Games account within the game or restore your old account if you had one previously and remember what it is. We will use the Discord Community Night channel to communicate and troubleshoot any issues that we might have.

Tribes of Midgard is an adventure/survival/crafting game based in Norse mythology. We will meet in the Tribes of Midgard Discord channel to coordinate and communicate and join into the same survival world. We are at the end of the game in terms of discovering and defeating bosses at least once, but we have a lot of undiscovered areas that we will be working to uncover on this night while waiting for a night when we can all be there to finish with Valhalla.

Prepare for Spring WAN Party: Battlefield V @ 10:00 PM Eastern Sat April 20
Posted on Friday April 19, 2024

The final game to show up in the schedule of events for our spring WAN party taking place this Saturday April 20 is Battlefield V which we will switch to around 10:00 PM Eastern. We will be using a private server through the game called [OSF] The Ardennes Forest.  The password will be foliage. To find the server, go to Play -> Community Games -> Browse Community Games -> Filter (by Name: Ardennes).  This should bring up our server in the list.  Do not join on others because it will unbalance the teams.

 

It does have profanity with the game announcer, but you can disable that by turning of the "In-Game Announcer" in the settings.  You can also set it to 11 different languages including "Brazilian Portuguese" if that does not work.

 

Below is a link to buy/download the game for $40, if you do not already own it, but it will inevitably go on sale again in the future for $10 or less. So if you do not have the game yet, you are better off simply signing up for EA Play for $5 for one month which will give you access to this game as well as a lot of other games and then cancelling it at the end of the month.

SoT G&G Community Night, Friday April 19 @ 8:30 PM Eastern

Gold & Glory (2x gold, reputation, renown)! We are doing this Friday night because Saturday night is our WAN party, so we will not have a community night on Sunday night. We will still try to get a few hours of this in at the end of our Saturday night WAN party too. Sea of Thieves is a PC and Xbox One action/adventure game that allows cross play between the two where you form a crew of up to 4 and sail around looking for treasure and having other adventures. If we have more than 4, we will split into several crews. We will make a attempts to match on the same server together with multiple ships at the start, so try to be there on time for this purpose.  In order to maximize our odds of getting more than one ship on the same server, please download the Fleet Creator and Windscribe VPN client, sign up for a free account with both, and have them installed and ready to use for these nights.  Fleet Creator allows us to see if we connected to the same server easier.  Our private lobby uses this code: xKeYI6pWPPdwAV18.  Windscribe aids in getting us on the same network and is easy to use and gives you 10 GBs of free data each month.

 

Make sure to check the game on the Microsoft store app prior to community night to see if there is an update that needs to be downloaded/installed by the store app!  Also, if you buy the game through the Microsoft store on either the PC or Xbox, you can install and play it on both the PC and Xbox One simultaneously. You can try it for a month for $1. See below.
