Hello Patterns Fans!
We have exciting news for all of you Founders out there! With this latest version of the game, we’re giving you the opportunity to take part in an open test of … wait for it … network multiplayer! You now have access to both internet and LAN play!
Check out some of the fun things you can do in multiplayer by watching the 03a trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlpjO8OMX1c
This is a very early version of this feature that we’ve made available for your keen help. Joining with other players across the internet can be buggy and there may (read ‘will’) be times that we have to bring down the servers, but your feedback on how it works - or doesn't work - will help us move toward a bigger and better multiplayer experience. Those that have trouble connecting over the internet should give LAN a try.
Other cool things you’ll find in this build include new planets to explore, some new creatures to keep you company, and some new substances to build with.
We intend to move a little more quickly with our updates this month, so keep an eye out for bug fixes and improvements. We will also be monitoring your feedback on multiplayer and fixing any bugs or making changes as they come up to improve the multiplayer experience. If you find any bugs, please report them to us here: https://support.buildpatterns.com/report-bug/
Thanks for playing and helping us out. As always we love hearing your feedback, seeing your videos and exploring the worlds you share with everyone on the Cosmos.
Stay tuned for more Patterns updates soon!
