I'll try to join you guys, but my connectivity will probably disappoint.

It'll be the first time I've tried to play it non-solo. Be fun to see what everybody else is building.

Corpse runs on/off?

1. I made the spoil rate as low as is allowed (.1).
2. I turned off drop items on death but corpses will still exist because bashing someone with your own leg is rad.
3. I haven't fucked with anything else yet.
4. Purges are obviously on.

In and playing, although no Discord for me. The connection won't handle voice and game. Barely handles game.

But as long as we're not PvPing that doesn't matter too much.

Lots of changes since I played last, but it actually feels a lot easier. Maybe just because I now know a lot of the newbie tricks.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: schild on May 15, 2018, 08:31:52 AM
We're past ten people having requested access. If this becomes an issue, we'll upgrade the server. Chances of us all playing at the same time is low though.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: Mandella on May 15, 2018, 11:44:31 AM
Nice 740 MB patch this morning.

I screwed up my screenshot, but I was happy to get "Cultural Appropriation" in my list of crimes. Seems legit.

I also thought I was picking Ymir as my starting deity of choice, but ended up in game with Mitra. Oh well, anybody need a small amount of ambrosia help yourself from the shrine I built down on the south river.

I'm going to do the odd thing and instead of heading north right off I'm going to see how well I can do down in the newbie region. I'm not looking forward to fighting spiders with my lag for a while anyhow.

I'll be down to join up if ya'll still got space. FYI, having a low rot multiplier isn't necessarily a good thing as rotten meat is required for compost which is required for growing your own Aloe plants for potions which becomes a thing when you move up north where there's zero aloe.

You're farming? Isn't that what thralls are for?

 :awesome_for_real:

Okay okay I know -- I'll be plowing to crush too as soon as I work up to it. But so far no shortage of rotten meat, since stuff still spoils when I'm offline. I've got crates of it.

Guys, if we hit the server cap, I'll just set up a PayPal donation link for like $3 a month for each user and upgrade the server. It's a non-issue.

Well, assuming you're willing to pay $3.

Spoiler: You are. Because Dong Country.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: Polysorbate80 on May 15, 2018, 06:05:59 PM
I put my bedroll up near the brimstone springs.  Since you can have two spawn points now, I figure it's easiest to die, go farm brimstone, then die again to get back home  :grin:

There's steelfire cooking at Fort I Cannibalieve it's not Butters, but I'm not able to do anything with the actual steel ...  it's northeast up the river cliff from Castle Donglet or whatever yer calling it.  Don't eat the thralls, I'm saving them for lunch.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: Bunk on May 16, 2018, 09:20:50 AM
Yeah, Schild and I stumbled on that fort yesterday. Borrowed your Wheel to break a thrall on the way home. You managed to build more there than the rest of us did combined I think.

We're west of you at the base of Bat Tower, mining all the irons.

Me, too.  I've had this game since it came out... someone gifted it to me because I think naked people are hilarious.  I have just played with the single player and I've only got a little bit past the first oasis-y area because I fiddle around too much. 

Some day I plan to have an insane rant about naked men.  Right here.  On f13.

Post by: Mandella on May 17, 2018, 12:59:11 PM
I've played it enough solo to have fallen into the habit of instantly making myself a neat little fort and working from there. I need to stop that and head on up north and join the Borg. That's part of the real fun of Minecrafty games like this, seeing what everybody else is building.

At 4k resolution highest settings thereís a bit of a performance dip on my office 970 in some areas.  Still playable even then.  At lower resolution or on the 1080 at home there are no issues

I'm running an Nvidia 1060 with only 8GB of system RAM on high settings and it runs fine. Though I did see a few hiccups after playing about 90 minutes (like memory leak type pauses for a second at times) but nothing unplayable.

Post by: Mandella on May 26, 2018, 11:35:50 AM
It occurs to me that all the talk/organization for the server is probably going on over on discord, which I neglected to follow the invite for. No, I don't have any actual problem with discord (I use it preferentially over Skype for video chat), but I don't have it installed on my gaming machine. Don't need the bandwidth hit when I'm playing.

Anyways, the reason I'm posting is that if there was ever a link given to donate to the running of the server I don't mind throwing a few dollars into it, so PM me or post it here or whatever. Or I can keep freeloading if that's what we're doing to.

Last few days I've only seen like one or two people on at a time, but then I play at weird hours, so maybe everyone isn't already tired of it after a week.

I have this and burned myself out a bit when it was released (in a terrible state compared to now). I was tempted to come back, but the reason why I did not even consider the f13 server is the lack of PvP. What the hell is wrong with you people?


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: schild on June 01, 2018, 08:44:38 PM
I might turn on pvp for certain hours after people are level 60 and get burnt out on base building. Frankly though, people just wanted to play a game with eachother. There's a billion games where we can kill eachother and we're not playing those soooooooo


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country

I'd like to play on the f13 server, too.  The only thing I don't like in this game are the characters faces.  Everyone is frowning.  Can't we have a pleasant face once in a while?  It needs more face mods.  Oh, and the hair styles aren't great.

HAHA. I don't know how many more times I have to repeat that i have never been a wolf in any PvP MMORPG I've played. I like PvP cause I enjoy the challenge of surviving humans instead of bots. That's it. The predictability of AI enemies is perfectly fine... in single player games.

A few hours in, I'm enjoying myself.  Minecraft with dongs.  I can dig it.

I built a little house on the beach and built an armorer's bench but I haven't figured out how to get a skinning knife to get hide.  Is the general idea of the game that I should be on the move to find more resources (I assume I need iron to make a knife), and build new settlements as I go rather than having a static base of operations?  And if so is there a direction I should aim for?

The building aspect of this game makes me really happy, even with just the shitty little stone box I've built so far.  I can see how you could build some really cool shit with this system.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: rattran on June 04, 2018, 06:46:15 PM
Desert area is to get accustomed to how stuff works, then move past the wall to the temperate area, or east to the jungle. Level up to build bigger stone boxes.

Post by: Khaldun on June 04, 2018, 09:18:09 PM
With no-corpse-run on, build your biggest base wherever suits your fancy (but explore everything before you decide)--you can essentially suicide-teleport between bed and bedroll. Plus once you can build a map, lots of places are close by. I have a desert base that's my main drag but now a house in the north too. Plus you can torture people pretty easily wherever there are people to be tortured and then stick 'em in your inventory until you get home. (plus if some of us get guilded, everyone can use our torture wheels)

The thing I like best about the building is working with the landscape. You can interweave your structures with natural landscape features in some really cool ways. I do sort of wish you could deform the landscape a bit here and there (tunnels, watercourses, etc.) but I get why that's a whole different thing.

Why do the mounted dragon heads turn out bigger than the dragon they came off of?

Fort Butters is waaay to sprawly to fit into a screenshot easily now, especially since I had to expand to fit all the shrines inside...apparently there's a limit on how close you can put temples to each other.  Guess the gods are bitchy that way.

I'm currently building Robot Pirate Island next to the bridge between black dong and the black keep.  All it will be is a giant multi-story block building filled with dancers, pillows and incense  :oh_i_see:  it's in a frostbite area, so keep warm if you visit...

Pretty sure I've seen online postings other places with treehouses built in the big trees.

Wish I could sit some thralls down in the chairs, but then I guess they'd be less thralls and more dinner guests...

Yep, 2 named fighters, 2 named archers, named carpenter, named armorer, 2 named performers that I've seen so far. With the usual 1-3 drek. Usually 1 named up at any time at least, most often Mei the Blade. They all spawn in the thrall group right around the Derketo trainer. Otherwise it's various apes and chickens, with lizard-rhinos and spiders south across the water.

My wife built that House of Pain, and the Box o' Slaves is a public service. Grab anything you like from there.  :grin:

Also, if there's anything you want me to watch for on my slaving runs of the Black Galleon, just lemme know. I usually only take named slaves, now that the HoP has named/grade-3 thralls on all stations, but I can capture anything I come across if you need one.

I've got named for all my stations, I swing by every now and then looking for named entertainers for the Robot Pirate Island dance hall but that's really all i'm looking for.

The "Treehouse of Horrors" is coming along nicely.  It's got a wheel of pain, now it just needs a BBQ and some comfy lawn furniture.  And dancers.

I've got named for all my stations, I swing by every now and then looking for named entertainers for the Robot Pirate Island dance hall but that's really all i'm looking for.

If you go near my bedroll in BlackDong (bedroll with 3 chests next to it), I left an extra Imiu of Derkheto there.


For Black Dong, I upgraded the smelters and armorers, and left some extra high priests and others in the crafting area out front if anyone needs.


If anyone sees any named carpenters or tanners I could get I'd appreciate it, I can't seem to find those at all after a week at the boat and swamp. Rayne, Sigyn, Valenso, and Inigo just don't like spawning for me.

Derketo trainer has ?poscore nimblefingers? a carpenter who spawns right next to the trainer, should be an extra in the box there, along with a spare named tanner from the volcano well.

As much as I like that area, unless it's a Mei then i tend to have bad luck there. Your new hotel is looking good though :grin:

Thanks for the Firis, looks like someone got the Poscore first so it's still farming time for a carpenter.

I found my way over to Hotel Rattran while trying to find the Derketo trainer.  I'm pretty much due west from there, on an island in that river.

Is the general idea with those massive NPC settlements to just bring a giant brute squad of thralls with you so you don't have to fight them 5v1?

Similarly, does equipping a thrall with a truncheon to have them help knock out other NPCs not work?  I gave that whirl last night (I have one fighter thrall but haven't successfully captured any more because they're always too tough for me to knock out) and my thrall just ran around helplessly while I got my ass kicked by a dude with a hammer.  My current thinking is to just gear up on heavy armor now that I've figured out where the iron is but curious if there are any other tricks.

I can't get thralls to follow me any more anyhow so I'm not sure if they are ever useful.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: Samwise on June 11, 2018, 03:06:58 PM
So is managing the giant mobs a matter of just gearing/statting up and swinging a big axe around (and trying to save the one you want to capture, if any, for last)?


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: Polysorbate80 on June 11, 2018, 03:25:31 PM
Youíre limited to 1 thrall following at a time, except for those times when itís broken and you canít have any.

Getting a t2/t3 truncheon helps, as does the first strength perk.

I havenít tried equipping them with a truncheonóno idea if it works.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: HaemishM on June 11, 2018, 04:06:04 PM
The best use I've found for thralls that follow is the bearers hauling 500 extra stone around while gathering materials. Otherwise, their combat AI is too bad to be considered for anything other than defense, and defense only by sheer weight of numbers. I'd never try to drag thralls along for offensive combat duty.

As for taking on the giant hitpoint sponge mobs that are the bosses, best tactics we've found so far have been to kite them with Set snake arrows and/or run them around until they get stuck on some world geometry and poke the fuck out of them before kiting them with more arrows and the occasional asspoke to keep them interested. It's hella fun to pull the dragons from the unnamed city to the oasis outside Muriela's Hope and have them fight with the giant boss rhino while whittling them down with arrows and the aforementioned ass pokes.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: Mandella on June 11, 2018, 04:12:46 PM
Only problem with using the thralls to help haul is that they aren't real nimble footed. Lost one of my early haulers off a stair, although I did manage to loot that sweet medieval style backpack off his crumpled body.

Of course, now the thrall I was storing it on refuses to let me back into his inventory, or pay any attention to me at all now. I'm told it's a known bug from having thralls before you join a clan.

In other news, might not be on much (I know, what shall you all do?) as I managed to burn out an amplifier in my network leaving me with only high latency satellite for the next week or so until I can get some replacement parts in.

Been having fun building roads and bridges connecting the various settlements though, which I can mostly safely do while laggy as hell.

Researching more it sounds like they don't scale up, so you can't build a single lift that takes you across the continent.  Oh well.

Pretty sure you can change mods on a server on the fly, and some have been made for speeding up/improving elevators if you want to go that route.

Also, boss HP mods seem like they'd be awesome to make those 40-60k hp bosses not be a snooze fest for a small 10person server where we cap around 5 concurrent users at a time that I have seen.

I am happy to install any mods people would like they also don't suck. I'd kill for a map mod that showed where people were as well as markers for houses somehow

Map grid with coordinates (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=864992037&searchtext=grid) is about as close as I can find for in-game location communication, and would not mind this being turned on.  Outside of the game, maybe for discord pinned sites, there is a  shared map using Google API (https://github.com/ProbablyAimee/ConanMap).

As for other mods, I'd be down for faster elevators, it's a PVE server so an elevator going faster isn't going to change anything.

The boss HP mod I'd like but would not mind if others want it it off as it does change the game a good bit (even if it is in a good way and is more like a fix for this game than anything).

I'm not a fan of things like unlimited encumberance, stam, stack size, etc though.

The bosses are right now pretty tedious, yeah. I just messed around with the giant spider in the desert and it couldn't really kill me unless I stopped trying but it would have taken me about an hour + to whittle it down to death.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: HaemishM on June 12, 2018, 10:56:08 AM
I've been playing on a server with my RL friends. We added 2 mods - LT's Compass and Minimap (little minimap with compass directions and coordinates on it) and Pickup+ (allows you to pickup a piece you've created like a crafting station or wall) and put it in your inventory without dismantling it, so you can move all your crafting stations without having to rebuild them. I've looked and the only one I saw that had map markers for your clan mates was Pippi User and Server Management and they disabled the map options so we don't use it.

Our second Purge hit the server last night. One of my buddies had decided to build a base out of sandstone right next to the obelisk at the Mounds of the Dead. That was the place the purge picked and it was intense. Waves of 2 groups of 4-5 naked T3 Cimmerians (archers and fighters) coming at the building with hate in their hearts. They weren't normal T3's either, as they could pop me with 2-3 hits (I'm level 57 with over 400 hp in heavy armor). It took a concerted effort of 4 of us with gaseous orbs (wearing a sandstorm mask protects you from the gas) whittling them down. I came in late and still saw something like 5 waves and died 3 times. I don't know how the purge picks its location but if it's in the right place it can be devastating. His building had luckily only been built two days prior which meant he didn't have hardly any thralls protecting it and he chose a bad spot.

There are Purges?

I've actually deliberately built my manor down on the Newbie River in Dong Country. I'm hoping all the savages go north to hit the more populated forts, since my little place wouldn't hold up to any kind of concerted assault.

Purges in the newbie zone are Tier 1 level mobs - hyenas and I think some werehyenas. Mounds of the dead was Tier 3.

There seems to be several poor or not well updated map apps out there.  This seemed the best to me:  https://www.conanexilesmap.com.  Are there others?

Title: Re: Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server - Bat Country
Post by: HaemishM on June 12, 2018, 04:21:06 PM
That one looks like the best one I've seen and we've looked at many. Death/rez and obelisks are the only fast travel, though there are some portals at the Temple of Frost that look like they are either going to be travel portals or portals to dungeons that haven't been added to the game yet.

I don't know the answers to any of that, but Soln I just wanted to tell you that while you are free to crash out at the base of my Mitra shrine anytime, feel free to just come inside too.

 :awesome_for_real:

I really should put in a guest room.

Also as a general question, are we immune to sandstorms while logged out/asleep? I assume we're not free from animal attack, but I notice people crashed out here and there exposed to the elements.

The B&N took advantage of the nether being 8x smaller to speed up travel. Pop into the nether, travel 1000 blocks, pop back to overworld and you traveled 8000 blocks.

Crap. I built some neat subway systems in Minecraft (like pull a lever and have a car from your destination replace the car you are taking there -- yes I know there are more *clever* ways to do it but I liked to keep my engineering kinda real-world possible-ish) but never thought of running it through the nether.

I would say that the lack of any means to build circuits and machines will mean that interest in Conan Exiles will wane soon, but then you never know what modders might come up with.

I'd love to build a rail line from the volcano to the desert...

I'd settle for ziplines.  

I set up my latest house on a cliff overlooking the river right across from the NPC village I'm practicing my thrall-taking on, with an overhanging balcony, so that I can do a high dive into the river rather than having to waste precious seconds running down to the beach.  Being able to build tall towers that use gravity in more interesting ways to facilitate fast travel would be nice.

One of those jungle obelisks is hard as fuck to find even with a map because it's literally on a 3-tiered fucking cliff. There are some interesting base spots - the "basement base" underneath one of the beach temples was interesting.

This is really a good argument over modding private servers at all. Unless we have the ability to deliberately freeze the server's patch level until the mod authors can catch up then this happens every major (and many minor) patch.

But that said there is a builder's mod that adds things like mason line and cheap scaffolding that I thought looked cool...

Looks like attention might be waning. As I'm still enjoying puttering around in the environment I'll ask ahead of time if, in the event of the inevitable eventual server shutdown, does our host provide the capability to download and backup the world? As in I would like a copy to mount locally and continue to putter around in.

I had a bad experience with this sort of thing the first Minecraft multiplayer world I played in. I got lucky in that my first experience was with a bunch of people who were seriously creative. There were entire cities built, linked with subways and overhead rail systems and some truly interesting architecture on display. It wasn't just min/maxed functional, it was visually attractive and fun to walk through and see what everybody was working on.

Unfortunately the guy who started the server got bored first, "forgot" to pay the monthly fees, and also forgot to locally store the backup.

All those moments were lost in time
