Smite - Free To Play.

Smite is a 3D fantasy MOBA where players take on the role of mythological gods and battle in team-based arenas. Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE puts you directly onto the battlefield with a third-person action viewpoint. From blind-side ambushes to aimed shots, a new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits.  Become a legend of myth, enter the Battleground of the Gods, and play FREE now!

Game Modes:
Conquest – the main 5v5 game mode. Features three lanes and a jungle area filled with neutral monsters. Arena – a 5v5 game mode with an open battle area rather than lanes. Each team begins with 500 points and must reduce the other side's to zero by killing heroes, minions, and escorting allied minions to portals. Joust – a 3v3 game mode with a single lane which otherwise plays like Conquest mode. Joust can also be played 1v1. Assault – similar to ARAM (All Random, All Mid) in LoL, players are assigned a random God and fight on a map with a single lane. Siege – a faster version of Conquest. Siege mode consists of only two lanes and contains a special Siege Juggernaut minion that deals extra damage to structures.
Never played a battle arena before? Don’t worry. Auto-buy, auto-level, and the deathmatch-like Arena mode let you jump right into divine MOBA action. Aspiring pro? Top the ladders, join a competitive team, and you too could be playing at the SMITE World Championship.

Suggestions for the 7 Days to Die game server?

Recommended Posts

Post your suggestions, comments and or thoughts about the server here.

I like the changes that have been done since the last time I played the game with the exception of how biomes are created now.  The biomes are kind plain and very bland in comparison to what they used to be.  I checked the 7 dtd forums and I see that others are complaining about the terrains too.  A lot of our members are leveling their skills up near the city, but once you start exploring the countryside you will find vast open areas with little  interest.

 

I would like to suggest that we install some prefab mods and reboot the server. The prefab mods will spice up the territories.  How would you folks like to explore some underground sewers and tunnels under the city?

 

If we installed the mod, we would have to restart the server which would create a new map.  I know some of you don't like starting over, so I am going to leave the decision to start over up to the general community.  If we do start over, I will see if I can maintain everyone skill levels.  

 

I am also interested in tweaking the mobs to keep the game interesting.

 

Thoughts?

Doesn't matter either way to me.  But if we are going to wipe, sooner is better than later.

This ^^, but I think the game gets pretty slow, after the initial zombies are killed. Other than the 7th day, it can get a bit boring. hehe

Server needs the following

 

More Zombies (tons more)

 

More animals (chickens)

 

Water, only seen one pond

 

Bigger cities, we seem to have baby ones.

 

I am only level 42 now so sure reset the server :)

I am still waiting to hear from Kristos, Jakari, Ginger and Endi.

 

I can modify the mobs and recipes without having to recreate the map so those changes are easy to add and remove.  Adding prefabs or adjusting the map would require a full restart of the map.

 

As a side note, I rented a 10 slot server, but I think we are up to 10 people who are registered on the server now.  The maximum people that i have seen online so far has been 6.  Should we add more slots?

If we have more than the maximum amount, then we will need more slots...

 

Otherwise the extra folks will be arsed out. Is the difference in the amount of server slots a lot or trivial like the NFO server host.

 

NFO is $19.99 for 10 slots and $29.99 for 50 slots, less % for multi-month pay and a $2.00 to $3.00 monthly discount for a private server.

We are currently using a 10 slot server from bluefang for $12.50  a Month.  NFO has a cheap 50 slot server, but it may be overkill for us as I am not sure how long and how many people will continue to play 7dtd after a Month.

Recipe drop rate is fine, I have 50/130 already and have shared a bunch with others. 

 

Got a link so we can check out the pre fab stuff?

I am also interested in adding a fishing and farming mod. 

 

Add machete to the craftable list.

We could create Boss Mobs that spawn on certain days and/or certain zones.   We could set it so that those Boss Mobs drop or have a chance to drop special items or recipes.

I'm good with restarting and mod'ing. What ever everyone wants to do i'm good with.

The only thing that I have AGAINST possibly using mods is...

 

When the server gets patched, how long will we not be able to play, while waiting for the mods that are broken to get updated.

 

If we do mod the server, we will be somewhat at the mercy of the modders. Depending on the mods, we may have to wipe the server, if a mod we use is no longer supported.

 

If this is not a concern, mod away.  :D

I haven't played this incarnation of the 7days server, but I can tell you from my past 7days experience and what I have found in ARK - more variety is definitely the way to go.  The only way to increase the danger factor and excitement on the old server was to jack the zombie spawn rate so high is was nigh impossible to enjoy solo gameplay. 

 

Anything that keeps the players interested in the server without ruining the overall "experience" (or causing serious server stability issues) is a +1 in my book.

I think zombies should be on never run, and be more dumb....Cause thats how i personally see how zombies would be, dumb and slow, but in HUGE numbers (and thats where the difficulty plays in)

So, the last couple days I've had a bad hitch while playing.  I spent this morning in an SP session for 3 hours with no hitching.  My hardware is good.  I have an i5-4750, R9-290 w/ 4GB, and 24GB.  This is also playing off my SSD.  I understand that the number of zeds has been maxed, this may be causing some of the slowness.  I also know that I am doing so much killing that I can't really explore.  So not as fun as it could be.

I lowered the zeds from 80 to 60 and the animals from 80 to 50 on Sunday.  Those changes will take affect the next time the server is rebooted.  That should help with some of the lag.  Adjusting your settings should also help.
