Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

making a multiplayer town building game

hello everybody. I'm trying to make a game where you can build a town, mining, gathering, upgrading your town, with a map view where you can see the other people's towns' and contact with them.

I made a dedicated server, where i think there isn't a problem. But i made 3 map in the game (login map, town map, map map) so i have to run 3 server at the same time. (and i think they can't communicate with each other) Every player data (like login data, town-, resources-, etc data) i store on one sql database and i access these data with varest plugin.

I think i don't do this well. So my question is that would be, are you have better idea then use 3 dedicated server, and where can i access and store players own data in the game, because using an online database i think isn't a best idea. ( every second inquiry the database 1000 times... impossible.)

Thank you for the help. (and sorry for my bad english)

i think i can use sublevels instead of the worlds. if the client open the level then the others won't see it. change the actor for the sublevel and everything done.

but how can i store and access every player data on the server?

i tried out with structs, but that's not only on the server but also on every client and i cannot get data from the server's structs.
