Pariah Expansion - In Multiplayer
« on: March 11, 2017, 01:48:53 am »
Good Morning all,

Is it possible to add part/all of the Pariah expansion into multiplayer?  It isn't in the same format as a mod so I've not tried forcing it on that way.

Thanks

Lurler edit: please read the following post, the information in this post is incorrect.

Hello!

It's possible but not recommended. It could be done in the same way as "core" or any mod is added to the ModsConfig.xml file.

The players without the installed expansion will see an error when try to connect to the server informing them that "DLC1 is not installed".

The primary issue is that some quests of the expansion are not suitable for multiplayer - during the quest line there will be some irreversible changes to the game world preventing other players from following the Pariahs faction quest line.

I'm not sure if we will update the expansion for multiplayer compatibility. We will discuss it next week.

Regards!

Disappointing - but thanks for the response!  I hope you allow more of the content to become available in co-op & multiplayer.

Actually no, this is not entirely correct. The Pariahs' Bane Expansion was designed to be 100% compatible with multiplayer.

Unfortunately we didn't have enough time and opportunity to thoroughly test it to make sure everything in multiplayer works correctly, the same was as in singleplayer, but all quests and everything else was designed to work in multiplayer.

So, feel free to give it a try. But as ai_enabled said, the players will need to have the expansion in order to connect to that server.
