From now on, we will use this info box to inform you about noteable updates on our Trello-Roadmap!

Trello update: We've recently implemented grass and now finalized the occlusion renderer to prevent grass from passing through objects. In addition to that, snowfall now also affects meadows

    It would be good if this could be addressed? A lot of workplaces use VPN's for obvious reasons (you're looking at one right now)... not to mention the privacy aspect it provides to joe blogs. Am assuming the VPN thing is on the games end and not steams end as every other steam game works.


    Just my two cents.

    Ok Red, here is the answer :)


    In simple terms, people are unable to "activate" (or whatever you want to call it) via VPN - you can get around it, but to keep it simple lets just say it's a rule.


    Once an account is created (and I can't see the backend of this site so not sure how it works, but I created a new user name with which it was implied I'd have another one on here heh) you can revert your routing table to how it was.

    any luck on that yet? my first thought would be to do a update on java my game did this the first time tooo

    It's well and truly up to date but thanks :)


    I'm progressing though - if I exclude routing from the vpn (ie go direct) I get a screen asking to sign up. Not sure why this has a bearing on things though, but it seems to.


    Gonna look into it further because it can't be that simple.

    Yep, exactly, that's a given. But I don't understand how servers are showing when I try multiplayer.. it's difficult to determine because of limited returns.. are servers routed via hive? I'm guessing not because otherwise nothing would show.


    Some further information that may help:

    Nah man nothing there, because there is no "error". The entire loading process went fine.. it parsed everything with the usual odd warnings (nothing to do with networking - oftentimes normal in java) and put me at the main screen ready to play. Except of course there is no people for me to connect with.

    Nah mate it's not that simple (I wish it were). Once again, my install is solid. I've already checked integrity of game (although that wouldn't confirm anything anyway given the issues I have - it's in a different realm TCP/IP stack and the OSI model is nothing to do with the files themselves but I digress). What are the "error files"? There is no "error" but I can look for those files. A far more comprehensive overview can be found on /var/log/messages which show nothing.


    I think this is a Red51 thing :)

    Maybe somethings going on at the hive end then, oO you will need to wait for Red51 to help solve this, yes i could see your running Linuxand i think most of the users on RW are over 30 years old, so maybe thats why we all seem so laid back lol.

    Cool I'm probably at the older end of the spectrum at 39 but hope to meet some great people once we get this sorted :D

    Are you able to ping 5.196.33.36 ?

    Thanks for sticking with me mate.. yep I can:

    Re 1. I hope this is the case, but I'm not so sure
    Re 2. I'm on ADSL2 at around 1 Meg a second, as I say - servers to connect to show up.
    Re 3. No problem on that front whatsoever. Not a doubt in my mind,
    Re 4. I don't know what. My firewall rules are solid (every other steam game works).
    Re rebooting - that only fixes windows problems :)


    It's a deeper issue than the run of the mill "mah gamez is not workin" that is so often heard these days. It's why I loaded the executable using java directly from a command line to show what it spits out.


    On the one hand it's not a pressing issue at this stage because single player works fine, yet a large part of why I bought the game was to get ideas from you guys on the servers because my imagination is near non existant heh.. plus this is the first community I've felt confident enough to actually do multiplayer in as opposed to say rust and Cities Skylines has no multiplayer. Lets just say for me the community was a big part in the purchase coz you're all pretty laid back, which by extension means I'd like to wander the worlds everyone has created.


    Sorry to ramble.
