Noob multiplayer question

#1 Post by marmot » Mon Mar 18, 2013 2:15 pm

Hi there,

Is anyone able to confirm that in order to progress with a multiplayer game, all players must be logged in to the game server at the same time? Ie there's no capability to take turns offline? And if so, are there any plans to introduce this? I appreciate that in early game progress with an offline game could be rather slow, but as I'm sure many appreciate it's hard to find the time to all be online at the same time..

Much appreciated,

There's been talk of a play-by-email sort of mode.
We're not against it, but there are challenges that would need to be overcome to make it work, and it is not the priority of any current developer.
