PostSubject: Troll Warrior   Tue 12 Jun - 8:36

This is a hobby project intended to evolve into a PvP game. The premise is that there are four breeds of troll: Cave, Mountain, Swamp, and Forest trolls. They have different traits and appearances and are in conflict over resources. Expect them to bash each other's brains out. And maybe eat a few Elves for lunch.

Website:
http://trollwarrior.com

How to create a user account:
http://trollwarrior.com/register/

How to connect:
From the commandline in the MultiverseClient bin directory, run
Code:
multiverseclient.exe --login_url http://trollwarrior.com/login --world sampleworld --master trollwarrior.com

Right now this is just running the stock sampleworld. The interesting thing about this is that it's been set up using code built from trunk -- not the packages from SourceForge. The SourceForge client may not work correctly (I had glitches on some but not all of my PCs), so you might need to use the newer client build posted on the site. This is not a customized client, it's just a little newer than the one on SF:
http://trollwarrior.com/ClientSetup.msi

Once Multiverse releases an updated build of the client you should be able to rely on the one from Sourceforge.

I haven't started building the world yet, but this is at least a proof of concept that shows that the Multiverse source code can be used to set up a game server that people can log into. It'll take a long while to build the world, but at least it's in a state where I can start and do live testing on a real server.

Let me know if you have any trouble or run into any errors. I can't promise it'll always be running, but it should be up and working most of the time.

I love this line from the website:* - We don't have plans to email you any crap or anything, this is just to prevent duplicate accounts.

Lol, I won't register yet, I will wait a little for you to have some clean updates and that it become a little more original. I can wait before seeing with my eyes that multiverse is ready and it works, I am still on the proccess of learning the basics of python

Goodluck developing your world

Yeah, I used up all the RAM on my server with the other projects on it. I need to upgrade to a bigger VPS. Two MUDs, Multiverse, 3 rails sites, 9 Django sites, and 3 Drupal sites is just too much for a little 1GB VPS.

That wouldn't help. It's not a question of operating system. I'm just running too many apps and they're using up all the RAM. Switching to an OS that behaves like "broken Linux" to me (commands don't behave the same) wouldn't help because the RAM usage for the apps would be the same.

I'm also a little afraid of BSD because it's a bit more hackable than Ubuntu Server. Sounds counterintuitive, but it's true.

FreeBSD more hackable then ubuntu ? Smile)) not in a milion years. As server, FreeBSD is making a brilliant job, managing the machine resources. For security part... Smile try to get a freebsd root Smile (if you ever get one, the admin must be a windows clicker). Just make a test, and you won`t regret it. If you have any question about secure install i will be glad to help.

Hint: install it minimal and then get ports with " portsnap fetch " then " portsnap extract " . The additional software instalation is easy and up to date. All VERIFIED software are in /usr/ports. No software will appear there, without a checking made by FreeBSD crew.

My day job is with an internet security company.

Our penetration testing guys could always consistently kill or compromise BSD machines, often in surprising and frightening ways. Not so with modern Linux, it's much harder to break into. Properly configured and locked down, Linux beats BSD thanks to the kernel security enhancements over the last few years. We were originally running all of our data infrastructure on FreeBSD but switched to Linux for that reason. In 2004, BSD kicked the crap out of Linux for security, but things have changed.

I do enjoy watching a good OS religious debate !! *grabs popcorn* Rolling Eyes


I am much more interested though in Xangis' game, it's premise, concept art etc
since that is what this forum is for.

You with Vanquish?

Got any renders of trolls or environments for us Xangis? Very Happy

I'm more of a carebear pve person but I think I'd make an exception for your game. cheers

It's super early-stage. I wanted to prove I could use the engine before I did any building. Stay tuned for concept art, pre-renders, etc.

Hey, I've read some of your posts and I'm pretty sure you can use the engine. Very Happy

The team(s) over at World Forge and Planeshift have been around for years right? ...and they still aren't done Very Happy

I know you probably already know this site but Eric over at http://www.eldergame.com/ seems to have a good
perspective on the mmo thing. He's using Unity and Smartfox I believe, coding all his own systems.


Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.


Cheers
