Topic: Chronicles of the Blowhard: a Minichanopolis Tale - Chapter 1 [OFFICIAL THREAD]

Capt. Squeegee started this discussion 2 months ago #64,333

Externally hosted imageAttention crew! this is now our official Minichanopolis gameplay thread. once you've got the game downloaded create a character on US WEST and report back here your character name so we can add you to the crew.

you will spawn randomly in the world. before you do anything, hit TAB and check your bags. you'll have schematics from the founder pack and you want to learn them by right clicking. i died and lost all my stuff right at the start. whatever you put on your belt persists through death, but everything else will be lost or dropped into a bag if it doesn't fall off the island. so just check your bags and know what you stand to lose.

i don't recommend starting a gun fight with anyone early on. it could go either way.

we'll need to figure out how to group up, there's a tool for forming a crew and i think we just warp when we join so we probably won't need to hunt anyone down. but i think that means you'll lose whatever ship you're on when you change your spawn point to the Blowhard spawners.

i won't be able to be on until later in the day so go ahead and build a boat and do some exploring or whatever because it'll come in handy to be able to build extra boats from time to time. and it's fun. just do whatever, be solo for a bit, and tonight the Quartermaster and i will get everyone on board.

the plan will be to continue to explore the current zone and hunt for knowledge and schematics. tbh right now we mostly just need to build up our personal tech trees and get as many Sky Core upgrades as we can find. the ship needs to be 2500+ kg to make the next wall and will need significantly more armor. the more parts you have the less likely lightning will target the Sky Core and kill us all.

we also need to collect iron for cannons and get at least 3 guns on the ship, 2 on the bow, 1 on the stern for now. that'll put us close to our current max weight.

Good luck everyone on your solo transition to the world.

Lena of Babylonia asks:
Do ships necessarily need panels on the hull?

yeah, eventually. they are for defense against rival players and they are for protection from the storm walls. players can use cannons to attack ships, so panels keep your Sky Core safe, if they break it they "sink" us. metal panels offer more protection than wood, but each material has it's own weight/resilience rating so you balance the two for what you're doing.

early game ships or temporary ships don't need panels really if you're only trying to get around the first zone. to pass the easiest wind wall you need a medium weight ship, hull panels, and engines. i made it with a 1000kg ship, 2 engines and about 3/4 of the hull entirely covered.

to pass the next wall we need to be significantly heavier and probably have 4 engines and full hull plating. probably metal plating. or at least some metal around the Sky Core.

Arrrr, that was some good pirating, crew. i picked up Quartermaster Brie and Slave Girl Lena in the Expanse, we were able to explore several islands and collected lots of knowledge and found some new schematics. we're hunting pretty hard for any kind of Sky Core upgrade for the ship, we're about 8 kg shy of our max weight and it's getting a bit hard to gain altitude. a lot hard i guess. we can barely take off. we'll keep up the hunt tomorrow for Sky Core upgrades. the ship's hold is now pretty full of gear and materials.

we ran across a few other ships and players, but none were interested in attacking us, fortunately. the Expanse isn't the most dangerous place, but it's not safe.

we hit up a large island i nicknamed "deformed porcupine cove" (not pictured) but i'm not sure what the official name will be on the cartographer's slave girl's map.
this chain of islands nearer to us was undiscovered and was named "the King's Jewels" (there's two smaller islands nearby just out of view)

until we better understand ship spawn mechanics while in a crew the crew disembarked on an island before logging off. the ship is parked nearby and the crew will be able to join the ship again. this is a precaution to prevent the ship from spawning on the other side of the world and being destroyed or have players fall to their deaths because they spawn in where they log out, not where the ship has moved to.

this will be temporary until we understand what it happens as we log in and out and move the ship, spawn the ship and despawn the ship.

i would also like to commend the crew, both Quartermaster Brie and Slave Girl Lena did a fantastic job of manning the sails and fighting off giant flying beetles and horny manta rays. at one point there had to have been 5 or six of the horniest manta rays you're ever seen all taking their turn trying to fuck the engines. but, a few well placed shots and they lost interest real quick.

great work crew. all we need are some cannons and we can start sinking some ships in this zone.

Squeegee, I just logged onto the game, but I wasn't going to do anything since you weren't online. However, I have a question, how come when I respawned on the island were we logged off at it says that I am no longer apart of a crew yet I see your ship floating above me out of reach of my grappling hook? Is this because I have a revival spawner onboard? Would the ship also appear to Brie who also has one? I'm confused as to why I see the ship in the sky yet it says I am no longer apart of a crew.

yeah, there's no way to stop the ship from spawning, so we're just going to have to live with the fact that everyone spawns it and try to be careful. still it happens that if you log out and someone moves the ship, when you log back in you spawn in that same position in space, not on the same position in the ship, so if the ship is moved while you're offline you'll fall to your death and have to respawn.

kind of a pain in the ass, because that pretty much means everyone is going to always log in and immediately fall to their death. so i was dropping people off on islands so they could log. that stopped them from dying, but now they can't reach the boat anyway... so i think we just have to plan on using death to get back and forth to the ship when we log in.

so unload your bags and carry your most important stuff on your belt.

yes, we tried to pass through a wind wall but i think we got pushed into a storm. we were sinking fast and there wasn't much i could do to stop us. i'm not sure if we ran out of fuel, but chat problems stopped brie from refueling us. but i think we dropped to the bottom anyway. the ship is lost.

we respawned on a nearby island and are working on gathering resources to rebuild. the blowhard just isn't heavy enough to stay stable in a storm wall and lacks the power to punch through. we need more schematics !

also, be on the look out for schematics for navigation instruments. they are a compass and an artificial horizon. if you find them just learn them, don't risk losing them. but be sure to let the boat builders know you have them, they are important for running storm walls.

lol. really? he saw me building a ship and said, "looks like you're doing well for yourself," and i took it as a threat. he asked if pirates attacked me and i said yes, and i lost my stuff hoping he wouldn't try to attack me and steal the new ship. i waited till he was on the other side of the island and i placed a helm and floated up into the sky without engines and logged out.

figured he was just waiting for me to build a ship he could steal.

when he logged in he farmed everything out from under me anyway and i ran out of wood and trees. kinda thought he was a griefer.

lame. we were going to have a race. next time.

@previous (Catherine !TGirlYJKXM)
it's not the easiest thing to fly, and some airships fly better than others. ships need to be built balanced otherwise they'll fly all wonky. the blowhard wasn't well balanced, all of the weight was in the stern which made the ship sometimes teeter totter. when the ship was attacked and boarded the guy latched on with his grappling hook and swung around like a pendulum which rocked the ship hard. at one point the ship was tipped sideways. i hit the gas and turned into the wind to run from his buddy, but we were rocking all over the place.

i blasted him a couple of times with the pistol while he was boarding, but had to take the helm to regain control. once i had us stable and running fast i followed him into below decks and found him trying to salvage my spawner. luckily we had 3 he wasn't able to kill even one. i ended up blasting him several more times till he ragdolled. he never even tried to fight me, just went straight for the ship components. it kinda took forever to kill him, i wasn't sure i was even going to be able to do it with only 20 rounds, but he died.

so ships can be really unstable, and i've seen videos of ships sinking in under 30 seconds. it's probably not you so much as it's the fact that you have all early starter parts and early ships are wonky and slow and turn like container ships.

and sailing is harder than using engines because of wind direction and needing to 'tack' to go upwind.

oh yeah, okay, so like there's apparently a meta. we're not really at the point where we need to worry about it so much, but eventually we'll be wanting to take advantage of how the game is designed to adjust what we're doing.

evidently the meta is to fly your ship at maximum world height and use either gliders to get onto islands, or to use a (probably unintended) grappling hook... 'trick' to not die on impact. i guess you then load your belt up with supplies and suicide to get back to the ship. something like that.

sounds kinda cowardly to me, but they say the meta at higher levels is to hide your ship so high it can't be seen and never bring it down except to change zones. oh, and they, i guess, don't recommend docking a ship in any zone higher than tier 3 (we're tier 2 right now) because the badlands are riddled with pirates and goons.

anyway, for the time being our ships are mostly temporary and kinda disposable so we can keep our focus on treasure hunting and collecting knowledge.
speaking of which we'll probably be wanting to head to another tier 2 zone since we've farmed this one, i think, almost entirely.

oh cool, here's a map, courtesy of our new friend captain Shellshock

he says we're in the Z2 region. yup, you can zoom in, we're in Z2 and i started in Z1. we need to head to Z3, 4 and 5 probably in that order makes sense.

we have a new ship, we're calling this one the Vaunter. not only does she look sexy as fuck she's fast as hell and packs a real punch. that's right, the Vaunter is armed with a rear facing artillery gun. This ship is built under weight, which gives it improved performance characteristics over the larger Blowhard class ships. even without a rudder or wings she still turns easily enough and readily changes altitude.

Capt. Squeegee (OP) double-posted this 2 months ago, 8 minutes later, 5 days after the original post[^] [v] #801,608

someone left a partially built ship floating around. i've heard of this kind of thing. it's carebears. at first i thought someone else was on the island so i carefully boarded the ship and found it totally empty and with a free spawn point to claim the ship. once i saw there was no one on the island everything started looking like typical carebear activity. everyone knows there are pirates in Z2, so i guess they're trying to arm the peasants?

i'm insulted. good thing i have this cannon.

Capt. Squeegee (OP) triple-posted this 2 months ago, 3 minutes later, 5 days after the original post[^] [v] #801,610

i like this cannon. it takes a bit to reload, but it hits pretty hard. it's not going to one-shot anything, but it makes a lot of racket and rocks their ship around.

Capt. Squeegee (OP) quadruple-posted this 2 months ago, 5 minutes later, 5 days after the original post[^] [v] #801,612

Quarter Master Brie got on board after i adjusted the cannon placement and we went up for more target practice. the gun is placed to give a 180 degree firing arc directly behind the ship, which means it can't shoot forward at all and is not very useful for broadside. so far the only encounters we've had with other players have involved 2 ships chasing the blowhard. only one was fast enough to keep up, and a rear facing cannon would've ended the faster ship's pursuit. i'll end up placing another gun on the bow once we're ready to do more than engage players defensively.

we'll see how the Vaunter fares. under sail and engines full she's a pretty quick little ship if the wind is at your back. this ship is built to run from a fight and survive rather than be aggressive and start fights. we still can't carry enough weight to clad the hull in metal armor, so until then it's probably best to build simple ships and play defensively. so if someone comes after you, gun the engines, open the sail, set the helm to full up bubble, and get on the cannon and start laying down some artillery.

we need to focus on keeping one stack of oak for repairs and mostly iron. we can add another trunk, but trunks are heavy and don't carry much. we need better container schematics. we're going to be dying a lot and losing a lot of these early ships, so don't think of them as permanent safe storage. but yeah, i'll add us another trunk or two, but weight restrictions really have us at a disadvantage right now.

till we get sky core upgrades enough to carry 3000+ we won't even be able to lift more than a few trunks.

Capt. Squeegee (OP) double-posted this 2 months ago, 17 minutes later, 6 days after the original post[^] [v] #801,658

speaking of cannons, you'll find a small ammo box on the side that holds something like 60 or 80 rounds. we should be loaded up with around about 30 after target practice. to make shells you have to put 150 points into cannons in the tech tree to unlock it as a bonus skill. everyone should probably tech at least 150 points into cannons to unlock the ability to make shells. shells are made from any kind of metal, and atm it doesn't seem like materials make any difference on the end product. so use copper, bronze, lead, tin to make shells (and pistol ammo). pretty much anything except Iron and Steel at the moment.

heavier metals make the most resilient parts, but they are very costly in weight. we can't use them for much and can't even really store them, but they can be converted into ammunition and shells and packed into cannons

Capt. Squeegee (OP) triple-posted this 2 months ago, 9 hours later, 6 days after the original post[^] [v] #801,806

also i should point out how easy it is to fall off the Vaunter. she's a tiny ship and the steering deck is smaller than on the Blowhard. the cannon placement also makes dismounting pretty dangerous. since it's on a corner if you dismount the cannon while the back is hanging over the side you'll fall off. pretty much you dismount directly behind the cannon, so wherever it's pointing determines what point you dismount to. so be sure to point the cannon towards the stern/port side of the ship so you'll dismount in the middle of the steering deck. look to the pic above to see what i'm talking about.

the Vaunter is pretty heavy now for such a short ship. we added 2 cannons on the bow to give us complete 360 degree coverage, and with 2 forward guns she's got some offensive capabilities. armed with just over 100 shells we should hopefully either sink the enemy or be sunk ourselves before we run out of shells. we'll probably want to just go ahead and fill up the cannons with as many rounds as they'll hold, so fully armed i think we'll carry 300-350 shells.

if you find lead, turn it into cannon shells. if you can't make shells, put 150 points into cannons to learn the ability.

oh yeah, and before we left dock we made another friend. Lena noticed him walking around nearby and it looked like he was going to enter our bubble. i quickly got on a deck gun and lobbed an explosive warning shot at his center of mass. the shell missed and exploded behind him, and he ran and hid behind a huge piece of rubble. i think his words were, "JESUS CHRIST," or something like that.

i told him not to come any closer and we'd hold our fire. after a brief standoff it was determined that he was just exploring and not looking to rob us. i, again, reiterated that we were armed and prepared to kill him if he stepped foot into our docking bubble, but that otherwise we'd leave him alone and be on our way shortly. he agreed, and came out from behind the rubble.

i decided to uphold my end of the agreement and hold my fire. i watched as the stranger struggled to climb the hills around the docking bubble in an attempt to get around us. he fell several times, called us assholes, and complained a few more times before finally struggling to the other side of our dock. Lena stayed on the cannons, and kept one pointing at him the entire time, 100% prepared to blast his ass off the island if he so much as step one foot inside our bubble.

he called us "twitchy," and then continued on his way.

i cannot believe i didn't screen shot it. that's why we need you with us beckyderp, you're always thinking of screen shotting chat.

as we left, Lena and i discussed whether or not we should find his ship and sink it. we didn't. we could've, we found it. but we didn't. if brie and beckyderp had been there we would've stolen it.

oh yes, and Lena, you will refer to me as captain or m'lord. not master. and especially not daddy. i know that we've grown close since i've raised you and protected you during your formative years, but you're a woman now and i will trade you for a 1200Kg Sky Core upgrade. 800Kg if it comes with some sweet structural part schematics. and don't you forget it.

oh yeah, and chat is really irritating. having to use /crew all the time. i'm not even sure if chat is global or local to islands or something. /crew is global even across zones, but i'm pretty tired of doing /crew all the damn time. i say we stop doing that and just roll with it.

also i want to reiterate how easy it would've been for that guy to have crossed to the other side of our dock if i'd just let him into our bubble and how difficult a time he had climbing the cliffs to get around us and how funny it was to watch him cuss and complain at us as he struggled his way around and how deliberately he avoided stepping anywhere close to the bubble because of Lena and and the cannons. i just stood on the steering deck and watched him go around and i'm still laughing about it.

the combinations of "you guys are fucking assholes" and him falling down the cliffs trying to go around was just adorable. i really, really like these cannons. from now on, all ships get cannons.

@previous (brie !kiTty82duI)
excellent, next time we land we need to see which is heavier, 2 small panels or 1 medium panel. if medium is lighter we need to strip the hull and replace the small panels. hopefully that'll give us better coverage and keep us the same weight or lighter. we're at max weight now.

hit tab and goto your knowledge tree and tech into the first skills and that'll open ship building. you have to then build a dock and an assembler to make parts. the ship dock makes a frame from preset wireframe shapes you can edit, and then the assembler makes parts to place on the hull.

google worlds adrift ship building for quick crash courses in how to build your first ship. it takes time to figure out, but it's fast once you know what to do.

I've removed some of the small panels and replaced them with medium panels, there are some holes but you seemed to think they were okay. We are now 100Kg under the weight limit, Captain.

the Vaunter looks incredible, brie. i went ahead and left her where she is since no one was on and i got bored, so you'll find her where you left her.

i think it's time we change zones, quartermaster, check the map
https://jerodar.github.io/WAMap/
and decide which zone you and the crew think is ripe for plunder. i'll plot us a course and the next time we play we'll take the Vaunter through a wind wall and see how she fares. i suggest we avoid crossing storm and sand walls, i've heard they'll sink a light wooden cruiser like the Vaunter. so take a vote and see where the crew wants to go.

also, Quartermaster, figure out what you and the crew want to use the ship for. if you and the crew feel ready to begin piracy then you just say the word and we'll start the hunt. or if you and the crew feel that we need to prepare a bit more and continue to play defensively that is up to you.

ALL HANDS, PREPARE TO SET SAIL! we make for the wind wall within the hour. all crew wishing to depart with us report in and prepare for the Quartermaster's safety briefing. after that we make for the wall and set a course for Old Church. once we arrive we will affect repairs, hunt for treasure, and then continue on our first exploration course through z3.

and now the Quartermaster will give the crew a safety briefing on traversing a wind wall. any time you're ready Quartermaster.

Stay grappled to the ship at all times during the traversal of windwalls. If you fall, grapple to the sail. That should be all you need to know.

@previous (brie !iFDoautiSM)
excellent work, i've been gone most of the day otherwise i'd have come help. that extra weight capacity should be enough for full coverage hull paneling, we should probably look at moving all the wood panels up higher and replacing all the lower panels with iron panels. i think they iron panels weight 40 kg for the medium ones, so 4 or 5 well placed panels should give our new atlas core better protection in the hull. we can probably just move the wood panels up like on the blowhard to make a bit of a railing around the deck.

good days work, brie, we're just that much closer to being able to pass through a storm wall
