Multiplayer

Connecting

To connect to the server, you must log in with a Discord account. You aren't required to join our Discord server though.
You can only connect with the latest stable or prerelease build of the game.

You can connect to the server with the /connect command.
You can disconnect from the server with the /disconnect command.

Only the most recent builds are able to connect to multiplayer. All players connect to the same server, regardless of which build is used.

Rules

When you play on our multiplayer server, you must follow our rules.

The multiplayer server operates under rules which are similar to those in our Discord server. The multiplayer rules are as follows:

  1. Be respectful; Don't be rude, mean, exclusionary, or discriminatory.
    • Discrimination towards things such as race, gender (+identities), sexuality, etc. is NOT tolerated.
    • Slurs are NOT tolerated (from anyone, no exceptions).
  2. Keep discussion appropriate; No adult content, inflammatory/controversial chatting or advertising.
    • NSFW is NOT allowed (sexual content, heavy gore) - you will be banned. Includes Naulsheets.
    • Do not pressure people into sharing personal information.
  3. No impersonation; Do not pretend to be anyone else.
  4. No spamming; Keep things in single messages within chat, don't be bothersome.
  5. No brigading; Do not target people, groups, etc. or bring drama into Multiplayer.
  6. Follow the Discord ToS; Since Multiplayer requires a Discord account, we expect you to follow its Terms of Service.
    • A noteworthy detail about Discord's ToS is that users must be at least 13 years of age.
    • Discord requires server operators to enforce this aggressively for legal reasons -- accounts will be banned even for joking about being underage.
  7. No advertising; Do not use multiplayer to direct people to join a separate Discord server, or anything similar.
  • Rules apply to all forms of ingame communication, and custom characters.
  • Do not attempt to find loopholes - this will be treated as an admission of intentionally violating rules.
  • Attempting to evade a ban will result in the new account being permanently banned, and will revoke any possibility of ever appealing the previous ban.
  • Breaking the rules "as a joke" is still punishable. If you break a rule as a joke, expect to be banned as a joke.
  • There is no tolerance for breaking major rules within the server.
  • Even if no staff are online at the time a rule is broken, you may still be banned after the fact. Staff may view chat logs.

Moderators can kick or ban players from multiplayer who violate these rules.
If you see a problem in multiplayer, you can join our Discord server to report it.
