Temporary FFC Gaming Server

Hey Fuzzbutts,

I've been toying with the idea of creating a private server for FFC in a number of different multiplayer games.
Now because I don't have a designated server or wish to pay for one, these sessions would likely be short term (maybe up and running week at a time).

If interested, please give input as to the game you would like to play in an FFC multiplayer setting.
These games may be limited to Multiplayer, PvE cooperative rather than PvP, but I'm willing to bend a little on game preferences given enough interest.

So far the games I am considering:
Unturned with the difficulty maxed (the minecraft graphics, FPS, zombie survival) FREE TO PLAY
Terraria 2-10$ On Steam
Minecraft but only with very customized PvE settings to make it very challenging survival wise ~25$





Boring Disclaimer due to KingFriday's experience: This would not be a community owned entity; I would have the final say to start and stop my participation at any time. I will try to work with people in terms of map files if they wished, but recognize that any work you do on this server may not be saved. Participation would also be a privilege, not a right. Any sort of misconduct would easily result in suspension or expulsion from this server.

realistically speaking, how much time would be needed to set up a server?

Almost no time at all especially with few mods and without struggling with the map. But I guess these options would be for dedicated server access, so one that's on all week for whoever enter to hop on with a friend or whatever

I know I said this many times but how about setting up a Trackmania Nations server :D?

So that's a racing game, correct?

My only issue with that (and the same goes for FPS games like TF2 or L4D2, etc.) is that you would need everybody online at more or less the same time, which would be a similar commitment to the FFC game night idea. The game nights are a problem not because we don't have a server on which to host them, but because it takes a lot of work every time to get people involved and online at the same time.

The benefit of open world / survival / or crafting type games is that you can still sort of interact with everyone even if you are not online at the same time; you can still impact other players with what you create. These games are also fun with as little as 2 or 3 people playing at once.


I don't own Trackmania (oh cool it's free), but with enough interest in that or other games, it's fairly easy to hop on and create a temporary server to host us for a few hours. This original idea is more for a 24 / 7 server

I haven't played Minecraft in super forever but I might give it another go if this kicks off (though if it's truly challenging I probably won't ever get much more than a lump of coal or two :P )

I also have gone a long time since i tried MC. My only fear with hosting a modded server is that everyone may need to independently install the used mods, which may cause much IT sessions of anger That being said I will still do it, Minecraft has the benefit of popularity: many already have it and it could turn into a popular thing in this community, in which case, given the demand, I might look into means of making this a full time thing

Well, it doesn't have to be a modded server. Vanilla servers work just the same, only without the extra functions that mods give.
And really, who needs mods anyway? :P

If I host a mine craft server it's going to be hard as ducks, though. Like hopefully even ducks will kill you

Just to bump this idea again, I'm toying with the idea of either a:
-dedicated server (I've made some progress with the dedicated server idea research, it seems I could potentially create a really difficult survival minecraft world if there is interest.)
-or-
-occasional gaming nights organized by me featuring an agreed upon game each event (not like the last game night setting where everyone needed to own and agree upon the game every time.)




What I need from you: If you are interested in playing a game with FFC, enough that you would be willing to plan around or prioritize attending a game night of it, post the game on this thread, even or especially if it's an idea I've already mentioned here.
I will gauge interest and try to reach a conclusion based off of answers so if you are interested please post.

I've got access to Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Minecraft, Terraria, and Rise of Nations. Possibly-not-as-good-for-this choices include Ace of Spades, League of Legends, and Realm of the Mad God. Plus anything that could be free/cheap I'd consider!

I would play TF2 prophunt or Monaco!

I'm usually at home weeknights until bedtime (10pm) and unavailable on Friday/Saturday night.

Alright the interest in this seems hesitant at best, which is completely fine and a bit predictable anyway. So at the moment I think my decision is to experiment with this at my pace and aim of interest.

Which means I'll likely go ahead and try to build a playable minecraft dedicated server, which may change or be very short lived depending on interest.

I may also try to host game events now and then based off of the games FFC seems able and willing to play. These may be listed on new threads or this one so keep an eye out.

And if you are reading all this late, feel free to respond to this or any prior posts, making your opinion known increases the odds that any of this will appeal to you in the future (thank you to everyone who has responded already)

So far Town of Salem and Quiplash have been fairly successful games for game nights. :3 Any other suggestions anyone has?

How did I miss this? Is that server still going, Tabs?
And I really need to get proper internet here so I don't need to keep driving to the library to play games.
