    Good to know thanks!

    I’ve just bought an 8GB Pi 4b with an Argon One case. Going to overclock it to at least 2GHz. I got a WD Green 240GB m.2 to go with it. Should arrive tomorrow or Saturday. I wonder how many players we can handle at once?

    Any tips on dealing with Troll Cave? I've got leather armour and the stag hammer, flint axe & tower shield. Should I leave it for a bit or explore?

    Use a bow & arrow.

    When I entered the cave I activate sneak mode and get an arrow shot to the head. Once it becomes aware pepper with arrows until it reaches melee range. Then use the dodge roll function when it attacks until you end up behind it. Then just continue to pepper with arrows whilst backtracking.

    Not had a troll in a cave yet, lol.. found plenty. Other method is wait til it comes at u, run out. wait a few in crouch til the eye goes away then re-enter (repeat til dead) Been crashing all day, 2 blue screens, finally got it to work for more than 10 mins on solo again, sheesh.

    You can cheese the trolls in the cave pretty easily, step in, shoot two arrows, step back out, wait 10 seconds for him to walk back to the start, step in, shoot two arrows, step back out, wait 10 seconds, rinse and repeat. They dont heal so you can just do that repeatedly and kill them without taking any damage

    Never really got into any survival games or Minecraft stuff before, but spun up a Vakheim server on Azure the other day, playing with a few work people...hooked!

    Really nice visuals, gameplay loop is solid, fairly straightforward to figure out things work. Survival part isn't onerous.

    It can definitely be played solo however I think its a better experience with others.

    It'll be forgotten about by the time it gets a full release, and everyone will have moved onto the next EA fad.

    Its a great game and off to a flyer, but I dont think it will be game of the year, not in official awards anyway

    This game just shows there's a market out there for an MMO this type of game!

    Hey all. I have just setup my Dedicated server on a PI 4 device and i am looking for people who would like to join and stress test its performance and see how it goes.

    Currently its running on the fastest micro sd card i got until my delivery for a ssd drive comes! So this is purely for testing purposes. The more that can join, the better! Server is based in the EU.

    server details:

    name: "Randir" password: "mightyducks"

    Like Minecraft, I can't honestly see me stopping playing for a long time to come. The only thing that will is if they drastically change gameplay elements etc.
    I hugely enjoy just walking around in my bronze clown armour and exploring. Our server finally found the merchant last night so I bought the Minginglord trinket, which boosts max weight from 300 to 450. That should help offset the weight of the essentials I carry like Food/Tools/Weaps.
