What is up with the online aspect?? I notice i have to type in a server name or ip or whatever?? Well i found some through google. Is that what i am supposed to do?? Find random servers on google and then jump between them with my character?? Also how does that affect stuff i have built??
Basically the whole aspect of the online confuses me. Any info you got id appreciate.
Well I use it the same way I've used it in Minecraft and Terraria - to play directly with my friends. I've never played on any public servers (I know they exist in Minecraft, don't know about Starbound or Terraria).
When I'm playing with my friends one of us has to host the server (Seperate button in the launcher) and then we all have to join it. The whole IP-thing can be a bit finicky and hard to get working, so we use a program called Hamachi which creates an artificial LAN with artificial IPs for you and four of your friends, makes connecting much easier
