I finished up Battletech Friday night and have been bouncing back and forth between Destiny 2 and Conan Exiles since. i feel like I am hitting the limit on what you can do solo in Conan, so I might just try joining a PvP server and playing around with getting killed repeatedly.
Aah, that's too bad. I had kind of worried that like Ark you would be a bit too limited as a solo player in Conan and it sounds like that's how it goes.
After playing some more, solo isn't really that bad... it isn't really much different from Ark though. I moved to a (official) PvP server and didn't see anyone all day and got back to where I was on my local game. For most of the day there were 7-10 players on and a little chat going on. I finally decided to go for a run after setting up my crafting stations to make all the stuff I needed for a decent-sized Tier 2 base... and when I came back I couldn't get on.
The official servers have "raid time." Player structures are indestructible, except for a specific time window. On the server I was playing on I think it is 5-11pm ET. The server was 40/40 every time I checked... and I checked a lot. Basically I had a Tier 1 house, full of Tier 2 crafting materials and I couldn't get on to check on it. I did what any sane person would do... I started a character on another server.
The official server have gathering set at 2x, but this server had it at 1x so I didn't get as far as fast, but I got some decent levels for the time invested, did some exploring and built a starter home.... again. This server was running around 30-32 people at prime time and had the cap set at 50-ish.
This morning I was finally able to get on my original server and found that I was alive and my building was still intact. I guess it was too far out of the way to be worth to anyone equipped to harm it. On the other hand, I know somebody found it because all the bricks were gone from my furnace. My furnace was poking through the wall of my base so you could access it from outside. Oops. Bricks are probably the most annoying thing to make and that was the last thing I needed to prep for my new base. It only took me about a half hour this morning to recover what I had lost, so not a big deal.
The real question is what do I do tonight. I'd rather play with 2x gathering, but I do not want to fight for a spot on a server. The game just hit release last week so I assume people will get bored and move on... hell, I'll be playing State of Decay 2 in a few days.
If anyone wants to play with me on the server with space, (I think) it is: 188.8.131.52:23000 If the name comes up with Mixer.com that's the place. It has RP in the title. From what I can tell, that means at the end of character creation change your name from your steam name to something more thematic.
