🥳 3rd anniversary multiplayer party (15 December 2021)

Next Wednesday (15 December 2021) marks the 3rd anniversary since Early Access version 01 was released. To celebrate the occasion, I’ll be hosting a series of multiplayer games on that day. Here’s the rundown:

  • Early Access version 99 will be released on Tuesday 14 December 2021. It’s more efficient in terms of network traffic, which should increase the maximum number of players that can simultaneously join. Some preliminary tests will also be performed that day.

  • Missions will start in the afternoon (GMT) of Wednesday 15 December 2021 and last for a period of a few hours.

  • To increase the number of players by reducing the server’s refesh rate (net tick). This might cause some weirdness with fast-firing weapons – we’ll see. All in all, I believe we should be able to cram 40 players until we start seeing disconnections.

  • I’ll also be recording footage of those missions for use in the upcoming CIU multiplayer trailer (callsigns and chat will not be visible in the video).

  • Missions will be relatively short 20-wave 100% difficulty Invasions, so that more people can participate overall. I’ll also host some shorter (10-wave) missions for 4-10 players to make the trailer footage a little bit more varied.

More detailed information will come nearer the time.

Update: Sets of multiplayer games will start on the following times. Each set might be one long mission, or several smaller ones. This schedule is tentative, and might change throughout the day.
