  1. If you're looking for a group of mature DST players with a dedicated server you should join The Famished Wanderers Convention. Our server is hosted in the US and we only have a few mods installed. Our server is up 24/7 but we mostly play on the weekend. We play two different worlds during the week. Currently the weekday world is on survival mode with no password. Every weekend we play the same endless world at regularly scheduled hours and we have the password posted on Discord so we don't have so much time pass while only one player is online. The schedule for our weekend world is Saturdays from 10AM till 10PM EST and Sundays from 2PM till 10PM EST. Our play style is based on creating one main base for everyone to share and long games that last hundreds of days. Right now our weekend world is around day 300, but even if you don't like playing on old established worlds you can join and wait for a reset, we might reset the world in a few months. We don't restart the world often. That being said because of the beta ending were resetting our weekend world and starting over from day 0. Our last weekend world made it to day 600 with a pretty nice base. There's a link the imgur screenshot gallery on our Discord. We're not strict on rules and we don't try to force people to play a certain way. You can play however you like on our server as long as you don't break the rules of course. We have new players and experienced players. We have members who play almost every week and members who only play about once a month. here's the list of mods we use: Moderator Commands Global Positions Repair Combine Welcome Message (only on the weekday world to tell people about the weekend world and Discord) Here's a link to our steam group - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/FWC_DST We primarily communicate on Discord. Here's the discord invite link - https://discord.gg/Ghu6X7z

  3. Thanks for the advice Jasper, I'm glad you enjoy playing on the server, I enjoyed playing with you too. The main problem we have with doing much with the weekday world is that the server is being hosted on a friend's server, not a rental service or something like that. So only a few select staff members have access to restart the server or change any settings. Also we don't have many members who seem to want to get on during the week. The weekday server used to be set to endless with a password for a few months but after a while no one got on for a whole week so we decided to make it public and survival so it wouldn't get stuck in winter and need restarting every so often. I'd like to do some of the things you suggested but we just aren't a big enough group yet. I've started streaming on the weekends so hopefully that will get people interested in the server. I'm going to try to put the videos on youtube too so people can see how we play on the weekends.
  4. Platform Steam Mods Yes I don't know how to reproduce it but it seemed to happen when I pressed tab, but I pressed tab a lot since its my map key. I've played DS for over 10 hours hours in the past week but this only happened today. both times within a half an hour of each other and after over an hour of playing.
  5. At the beginning of the year I started a community with a dedicated server and a discord server. I've always used the discord server as the main communication service. After a couple months I made a steam group but told everyone we wouldn't use it for communication much. I've posted info on there and thats about it. people have joined it so I make announcements on there occasionally on the weekend when the 3 main members (including me) get on the server to play. Besides us 3 there are only about half a dozen people who get on the server repeatedly. I have tried a few different things to make the server more appealing to the average player. Like getting rid of the extra equip slot mod after a few months. But the number of people playing on the server doesn't seem to grow very much. Our main world is up on Saturdays from 10AM till 10PM EST and Sundays from 2PM till 7PM EST. This is when were most active and were usually in voice chat. Our weekday world is public and running survival mode. Our play style (in the weekend world) is based on creating one main base with lots of resources for everyone to share and long games that last hundreds of days. We also likes planning boss fights and events. We like testing out strategies and helping other players learn. We don't restart the world often. We only play with a few mods, none that are too game changing. Both worlds have the same mods enabled. To people who have been leading a growing DST community for a while: what have you done that works the best for getting people to join the server consistently? and what are some things not to do?
  6. 4. The Community: They're self entitled, and too smart for their own good. They want everything balanced their way but they don't want to take the time to code it themselves. They're glad that Klei thought to make the game moddible but they're too elitest to use mods because they ruin the game. The mods need to make the game more realistic but only in certain ways. Now get to work Klei! /s PS: jk Klei Thanks for making such an amazing game and thank you for not charging for that amazing DLC; A New Reign. Keep up the good work!
