    Alright, so: I figured out how we can get people to find out about SoA. Turns out that if you distribute it amongst Minecraft fans, they all f*cking love it.

    No, no, I don't think so. It'd show up in my post if I HAD done what you baselessly accuse me of! :whistle:

    In all seriousness, I think that'd be a good idea, but wait until we have SOME gameplay in place.

    This is definitely an awesome idea and I am all for it. The gamemode may have to be revised once we have more features, but something like this would be really great.

    BTW, in response to the hundreds of players being "a technical nightmare to get this many players on a server at once.", if you throw it at something powerful enough it won't matter.

    But something that powerful is expensive...

    But we also have access to something that powerful...

    2 somethings....

    Question being, can we link them together and have them both run the same game?

    That all depends on how we handle the multiplayer.

    Also I think I should clarify what I meant by 2 somethings, we have 2 servers that I consider to be insane, these servers are not property of SoA and if we did run anything on them it would be with the permission of Jeremail, and no we will not host your stuff on it, so don't ask :)

    Another clarification: we have no intentions (currently - I can't speak for the distant future) of providing any hosting solutions officially ourselves. That includes public servers. What we want to do is host is one or two publicly accessible servers for people to play on with us - on a unofficial, purely for-fun basis, as well as using for testing of the multiplayer as and when we implement it.

    We don't want to go down the route of multiplayer even having a semblance of being dependent on us for hosting (we could never allow you guys the same scale of freedom if we did).

    Well, given there could be more than one game server hosted by more than one person/group, there would be a potential need for more than one! Though only if the game had enough people wanting to make/host servers the same as happens in Minecraft and the like.
