Saw this upcoming on steam:

Life is Feudal: Your Own is an alternative to the new and revolutionary Life is Feudal Sandbox MMORPG. LiF:YO is a pocket world, which gives you freedom in creating your own server and your own rules. LiF:YO offers you essential tools to configure your server anyway you like and allows you to play with your friends. You are only limited by the size of the map and maximum amount of players that can play with. In LiF:YO you are free to modify the game assets to create the gameplay to your preferences.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/290080

Quote:
Key Features:

Full, unlimited terraforming possibilities

Digging tunnels, mines and moats - expanding them in all dimensions and almost without limitation.

Raising and lowering ground levels with sloping effects.

Multiple ground materials (soil, rock, granite, ore veins, clay, sand, etc.). You will see them, feel how hard it is to dig them and you will actually use them in crafting.

Pave roads to speed up your settlement’s economy or to benefit the community as a whole.

Contruct buildings by square or per structure on a city plot. Build on any part of the global map.

One big, persistent, seamless world

Approximately 450 square kilometers of different landscapes and climates

Death penalties and alignment system

Realism

Rich crafting system

Survival mechanics

Local banking

No target combat

Realistic body damage and status

Minimum grind

Skills are measured from 0 to 100. Reaching skill level 90 will be relatively easy (2-5 days of “powergaming” or few weeks of relaxed evening gaming) and will give access to full powers in a skill. Reaching skill level 100 will take a HUGE amount of effort and will not provide you with any in-game advantages except titles and something you can show off to others to be recognized and worshiped.



... and many more other features that you will definitely enjoy!




Anyone else want to try it?

I made a server. I don't know if they're persistent.

edit: No server right now. Working on getting a persistent one. Fogroth joined us. It's a mix of Wurm, Mount and blade and some UO.

Hey folks,

I like it a lot.

It's fun and cooperative and very sandy. There's no plot or goal or objective except what you create. The crafting / building is the strength in a very Minecraftian way. It's definitely small scale and short term "ish" right now. Again, very similar to what was our Minecraft server (as I saw it) in scale if we went forward with anything.

Current state, I can only figure out how to have a server up when a player is up and that'll make for inconsistent play experience. If we could find a host for a dedicated server, I see it as having MUCH better potential for us as a group. Still, its a hoot and I get that awesome co-op / shadowclan / tribe versus the world feeling the little we've been able to get a few of us together.

Similar (in ways) to :
Wurm
Minecraft
Xsyon
Fallen Earth
Darkfall
Roma Victor
Salem
Ryzom

I get the feeling it's similar in ways to other games (UO, Shadowbane), but I'm only listing those games I've had personal experience with.

Bottom Line- I feel it's something I could enjoy replaying or returning to again and again and again.

Eventually this will have a MMO server run by the company. I think if you buy the single player version you will get the MMO version for free.

This game can be very hard. It took us two days to get to the iron age really. Everything you do you find that you need another skill to do it so working together has been a must.

You know that you are deep into a game about civ building when you celebrate being able to make a chicken coop so maybe someday you can make some rope... Shocked

The Herbalism system in the game is overly complex I would guess that there is over 30+ herbs in the game that can be mixed to make preparations to effect different stats once you can make potions. The effects of the herbs (a la Skyrim) give three effects that you learn by trial and error. Here is the kicker tho, the three effects on the herb differ PER PLAYER. So, I cannot tell you how to make that health potion you must trial and error your way yourself through all 30+ herbs.

You might think after reading all that I may not like this game. I LOVE IT. It is not for everyone. Welcome to Serfdom Online.

Go stare at some trees!

If I can get a count of people willing to play this game. If I can get like 5 or so people I am thinking about renting a dedicated server. I have some interesting ideas I might want to throw around to you if we can get about 10 or so. I don't know if that is quite possible. Lets see.

Indiegala has a bundle on sale that includes LiF:YO for $29.95. The other two games aren't impressive but the main thing is getting LiF for $30 instead of $40.

The deal expires in 3 days as of this post time.

The link is: https://www.indiegala.com/epics

Lesson for me in this forum: pick games with only one species. The discussion turns on how to make things work, not on which species, of a bunch anime style toons, is most SC-ish.

I'll pitch in on a dedicated server. They run roughly $30 a month from some research I did last weekend.

found one that is 20$ a month for a 20 man and 25$ a month for a 40 man. I don't think we quite need 40 slots.

I have rented a 20 man server. Here is the info.

[SC] Shadowlands
IP: 216.245.204.242:40260
password: hoowah

For the people who were on the other server I will set you up so you can get closer to what stats you had on that server. Right now I have the server set up close to default but I may change things if needed. I work nights so if anything needs to be adjusted leave me a message on here. I will work out everything else this weekend.

Here is the current server config.

animalBFPeriod [range 1-600] 60
animalsCount [range 10-75] 25
craftingPeriod [range 1 - 3600] 10
dayCycle [range 0.5 - 24] 1.0 (One hour day. One hour night)
skillcap [range 200 - 3000] 1600 (may lower not sure yet.)
skillsStatsMult [range 0.1 - 100] 10.0
terraformingSpeed [range 0-60] 4.0

Also if you are having trouble finding the server on the server list you can use this command to connect manually.

hit the ~ key and type or paste this in.

joinToRemoteServer("216.245.204.242:40260","hoowah")

[use ctrl+v to paste in the command line]

I'm absolutely loving this game. I'm not playing on the SC server as I have some friends set up elsewhere but I'm really enjoying the cooperation and the sheer level of dependence we have on one another.

The caveat is, of course, that if you don't have anyone to play this game with then it's basically pointless.

Anyways, diz gaym am bubhosh!

What are the race/image combo's for our characters or does it matter?

Race doesn't matter right now all the character models look the same in the alpha. Pick whatever race works well with the skills you want
