internet is needed only once when you first start the game, after that it can be purely offline

It works the same way as with minecraft - you can host for free locally, through port forwarding or via vpn e.g. hamachi.
If you need a 24/7 online server with good connection bandwidth and easier setup a paid server is better, yes.
Would much appreciate if a theme background image could be set to scaling. As of right now you can make it either look good on an HD screen or a 4k screen, but not both.
If you upload a hd image - it repeats or cuts off on 4k screens
If you upload a 4k image - it is heavily zoomed in on an hd monitor.
Sorry to hear you had a bad time. We hare happy to help - our official support channel is through the main sites support ticket system - https://www.vintagestory.at/support/
When requesting a password reset - please disable BitDefender, if you have it installed. It silently blocks all requests to our site, for no apparent reason and its the only application that seem to do that.
Also feel free to request a refund through itch.io.
It is PC-independent, but you need one account for each player. They all need to log in once, after that you can play offline. For an offline LAN party you might need to set VerifyPlayerAuth to false in the serverconfig.json before launching a game server, otherwise I think they won't be able to connect
Lovely game. Great work on the ambient and music, it makes for a really soothing experience!
The island was quite a challenge! I just barely made it. All in all, surely worth paying for ^_^
2 bugs that were quite apparent:
- When accidently placing a toxin scrubber out of range of electricity, then placing any others nearby that do have electricity have no effect
- The bee sprites gfx seem to break down into weird yellow pixely globs when its raining
Oh yea, I was also kinda hoping that when after I finished the island I'd be rewarded with a "Congrats, you made it!" screen with some bonus gfx/sfx.
Yes, currently you need a game account in any case, but it lets you skip the site/forum account when buying it from itch/humble. I've now added a notice to that paragraph on the site so its more clear. Sorry for the confusion.
The download provided on the itch.io site is the full game, I'm not sure about the itch.io app, I never tried that one.
No, currently there is no demo available. But if the game is not to your liking or doesnt work for you, I'm happy to refund it personally when bought on vintagestory.at and I think the refund policy here on itch.io is also pretty generous.
Weird, I could have sworn I removed the local-coop tag before. Well, now its removed again. Its currently not possible to do local-coop on the same machine, sorry for the confusion.
I'm glad you like the game! It was indeed born out of a desire to deliver an experience we hoped MC to have, but which never came
Hi gunnar_z. On the itch.io download section, a bit further down should be a game key link think. When you browse to that link you can set up a game account and then log in in-game.
Hope that helps!
You might need to run "sudo cert-sync /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt" or something similar. See also https://www.vintagestory.at/forums/topic/520-linux-distrosconfigurations-under-which-vs-is-known-to-run/
