Title: [A18] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: Longwelwind on July 24, 2016, 02:45:18 PM
Hi !

Phi is a mod that allows players to interact between each other. You can connect to the global default server or host your own to play with your friends.

The mod doesn't and will never offer "real-time" multiplayer, i.e. 2 players playing the same colony at the same time. While it would be really cool, it would require way too much work. No need to ask for it, Phi will not implement it.

The mod isn't full-fledged for the moment, but features & improvements are done in each update. :)


Features:


How to install:
Simply put the archive in the Mods folder like any other mod.

PhiClient (https://github.com/Longwelwind/Phi/releases/latest) | Github repository (https://github.com/Longwelwind/Phi) | Steam Workshop (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=732930564)

It doesn't require you to make a new game. Though, please do a backup of your saved game before attempting to use Phi.


Setting up your server
You can download the archive and put it anywhere on your computer.

PhiServer (https://github.com/Longwelwind/Phi/releases/latest)

Launch PhiServer.exe using a shell (so you get the server logs in case of an error).
The server can also be hosted on a Linux server (longwelwind.net is hosted on a Ubuntu Server machine) using mono.

Now I am aware that this is a proof of concept, but I've downloaded it and joined your server. I've sent a message via the server tab. Is there a chat log or is something wrong on my side?

Can we send prisoners to another person's colony? If this gets big you may need a better server, because of the awesome community and the steam release.

could this be used like in misc incidents to send players to another colony? they would just go on a "mission" and unusable to the player until they return (in a box lol)?

This is bloomin amazing! Proof RimWorld can handle multiplayer connection. all we need now is the ability to raid/assist/visit peoples colonies and manage a real diplomacy to other players.

I think if you could raid/assist/visit other people my computer would explode with my scream of joy haha.

Trading idea does sound really cool as I always seem to have that one resource I never have enough of and 1000's of potatoes.

This mod will be mostly unbalanced though am I right? Since players start at different times. Meaning A player could of spent 10 hours on a server. Have over 5000 plasteel charge rifles and power armor, and then a new player joins and that first player can send the second player say 2500 plasteel 3 charge rifles and 3 power armor sets and they have an easy ride through the game. Maybe there should be some limits as to how much you can send and a time limit where it has to recharge?

EDIT: Also, I assume this mod will not work with any mods, as all players need the core game to play without problems with other players on the server? And can the server work if all players have the same mods on that server?

Post by: TheFlameTouched on July 24, 2016, 04:54:11 PM
If both players have the mod then it should work fine. It can be unbalanced as you say LustrousWolf, however, this is as Long said, a very early build, a proof of concept, He fully intends tweaking it further. For now however, grab the mod, install it and come experience multiplayerish rimworld.

If only one of you have the mod, it throws up an error and nothing happens. No negative effects.

I meant other mods sorry. SO both players have Phi, and one player has additional mods it wont work at all correct? But if both players have Phi and  the same other mods loaded, will it work?
Title: Re: [A14] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: TheFlameTouched on July 24, 2016, 05:04:56 PM
Nope, it should work perfectly fine :) Phi just adds a chatroom and trade function as far as I'm aware. Sending mod items over it is the only time the mods would touch each other.

Ayyyy that's great!! Now my friends will play rimworld!! The only reason they didn't before was because there wasn't any sort of multiplayer :)

So are there any Phi servers up atm?

Sending colonists is the next feature I'd like to implement, but I will first try to improve error logging and the stability of the server.

Have over 5000 plasteel charge rifles and power armor, and then a new player joins and that first player can send the second player say 2500 plasteel 3 charge rifles and 3 power armor sets and they have an easy ride through the game.

It is up to the players to choose what they want to do with the mod.
Any player can give himself a lot of items with the Debug Mode, anyway, so the player will need to agree to the rules between themselves.

It highly depends on the mods. Technically, a mod wouldn't work with Phi if it has state that isn't transmitted over the wire when a player sends an item of the mod. For "basic" mods that adds item & such, it should work perfectly. For other mods, it could work, but it'd need to be tested.

Post by: 123nick on July 24, 2016, 05:27:35 PM
one more question- if you send over a statue with art depicting events that happened in your colony, when it reaches the friends colony, will it still have the same art?

@Longwelwind
Ahhh I never even thought about players enabling the Dev Command. Do you think you could add a way to disable it? Or a way to restrict parts of the dev mode so players can't cheat?
Since some players may cheat and send in loads of valuables to other players, is there a way to decline items from other players if they want to play legit and not receive cheated in items?
Also, can players re load a save on the server and cheat in that way?
And can they reload multiple saves on the same server? Or is it just 1 save per server?

Post by: 123nick on July 24, 2016, 06:16:44 PM
tbh, i dont think caring about cheating should be that big a deal. i mean, i see this being used with groups of friends, which in that case can just tell eachother not too cheat stuff in and etc.

Yes that is true. I guess I was thinking on a more multiplayer stage and not with just friends :D
Although I still feel like there should still be a decline button for players that want to play legitimately to deny any items from other players that have spawned them in.

Post by: tefery03 on July 24, 2016, 06:49:59 PM
@LustrousWolf I agree your mod is fantastic but i wait further development to get it. Yeah a confirmation button may be good but try to think about Whitelist/Blacklist an option to choose only whitelist accepted and don't confirm for whitelist.
Title: Re: [A14] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: stigma on July 24, 2016, 07:12:22 PM
This seems like a really great idea. It would be cool if it was a little more "integrated" into the game though - like organizing caravans, deciding what is worth bringing along, training animals with "haul" to bring more ect.  - and then those caravans basically just act as any normal NPC caravan when they reach other players.

Even though you have to account for a lot of possible scenarios with other players not always being online, I think this could definitely add a lot to the game. Instead of randomly generating worlds you could select existing world shared by others to come play make new colonies on and trade with them - it would certainly help flesh out the faction-system in the game and make the part of the game much more engaging (and potentially profitable).

Post by: Nanao-kun on July 24, 2016, 07:23:07 PM
LustrousWolf, another reason why you'd want to be able to decline items is if they send you a massive amount of valuable stuff that you can't actually use, dramatically increasing your colony wealth and increasing the size of the raids to something you won't survive.

Is this Compatible with other Mods? So i coud send Titanium?

I had a similar idea even, but im not so good in coding so i gave up. Great Work btw.

Do you think we coud send "Raids" or "Traders" to other People? So we choose the People and an Event woud start at the other Person?

I don't think you can disable it.
Maybe your Mod need to monitor this, and set a "cheat" flag to the current colony of that user.
But when a user realy want to cheat with the Dev mode he just need to disable the mod before, add the items, and reenable the mod.

Honestly dont bother trying to stop cheating in a mod, you will lose, if someone really wants to cheat there is not much you can do to stop them. You might be able to block some ways, but I doubt you can get them all.

Even if you block  Dev Command, which you might be able to do using CCL detours, there are mods that can make it easier to get items, you could easily make a mod that gives you however many you want at the touch of a button, You might be able to use a WhiteList of mods, but that will get annoying to update, and some one could rename their cheat mod to one on the white list.

After you send resources is there anything stooping me from loading a previous saved game and sending the same resources again, over and over?

While we are at it all the saved games are in unencrypted XML, so it is not hard to edit in whatever I want. That is before even looking at memory editing.

You could limit the items that you can send through, to so many every hour to cut down on trolling ability. But stopping people from cheating is a lost cause.

Pretty much this.
I can't stop players from cheating since everything is client-side.

There's nothing to configure at the moment. If it says that, then you just need to connect to the IP of your server (localhost if it is on your server). You may need to configure your firewall or the ports of your router to let other players connect to your server.

Could you put this on steam? i don't mod so i did not read the workshop terms of service, so i really don't know if you can

I'll try to make a new version tonight, I'll try to set it up on Steam if it is not too difficult.

This is incredible. The trading and trolling is already incredibly fun. I can only imagine how much fun it will be once we can send our boomalopes or pre-psychotic vatgrown assassins to others. This mod has single-handedly changed Rimworld completely for me.

Post by: Zhakir on July 25, 2016, 11:52:31 AM
Your all posting like preventing cheaters & Trolls would be a problem.

Sure the game is client side and thereby cheaters can dev mode whatever they want.

Lets make it way more simple.
Make the Recipent.  The one Recieving the cargo.
Get an EVENT WINDOW where he can Accept or Refuse the "Trade"
The trade window should also displays what is being sent as text and thereby the recipent can decide themselves.

& If the recipent refuses the Cargo the game "attempts" to send the cargo back to sender. If unable to do it then it just deletes the cargo.

Im a Steam user and only made an Account to help out with this with my own thought i had.
I might stick around though :) (probably)

It fixed a bug that was in the previous version.
Normally, you should just execute the .exe on the server. If you or your friends can't connect to your server, check firewall and ports.

This is amazing! Multiplayer Rimworld has always been one of those things a lot of people wanted but no one could really figure out a way for it to work. A few of my friends who bought the game will be all over this once it gets a little more fleshed out. We love to play co-op games and Rimworld not having co-op was a real bummer. This is really promising and I hope you continue to improve it!

Ok I opened the ports as you recommend. But sometimes when someone joins the second player who joins wont have a name or be able to type or send items. Effectively making them not exist. I haven't tried the new update yet but hopefully it fix's that.

Some ideas I'd love to see with this, eventually:

- A setting to limit players to only be able to trade with others using the same world seed
- *Caveat to the above, maybe require a comms panel/orbital trade beacons to allow trading to other worlds
- A setting that puts other players settlements (using the same world seed) on your map, so you can't build in the same location (much like existing settlements)
- A setting that restricts certain items from being traded
- A setting to set required mods (or restricted ones)
- A setting to set required/restricted Scenarios
- A setting to require Permadeath mode, and auto-save interval

All of this would be configurable by the server owner, so they can set their servers to have specific rules and themes.

Bug might have been found.

It would be great if you could send your people to attack/steal.  sort of like a TD game.  but they are your colonists and you would lose people.  or you could send them to help out another colonies defense and the return after, with a Cool down of sorts, It takes a day or 2 for them to return

I have no clue how this works but you must be some kind of modding god! making a single player game have a multiplayer option?!

It's conceptually simple (which isn't to say that I could even begin to implement it...). Basically, the mod itself creates a connection to the server. When one user creates an order to send, the mod tells the game to delete the objects, then sends a message to the server. The server then sends a message to the receiver's mod, which tells the game to create a drop-pod event with the specified items.

Basically, each client is doing the creation and deletion of the objects using existing game mechanisms. The mod and the server are simply telling the mods what to create and delete. At no point do either game or mod talk directly to each other, so it limits the amount of interaction...

The chat functionality is basically the same. The mod tells the game to display messages using existing mechanisms, when it receives a message from the server.

But what you can do within those limits is pretty spectacular.

Could you somehow put this on steam? my friends and I want to do this, and it would be cool if this could just be another thing that gets updated every time with the regular game. I haven't tried it, but this sounds great!

as a recommendation for a fix to the limited display space, a search filter might be a simple solution to this problem, in the event that a scrollbar proves frustrating.

@Longwelwind -  Amazing work! One idea about the 'dev' command is if you can detect that it is 'on' it won't allow for those with it 'off' to trade or interact as a way to have those who don't want 'dev command' stuff and what not in their game.

Yes, I do know this won't stop someone from 'turning it on for a time' and cheating then turning it off to interact, but it could cut some of that down a little.

Do you think you can build a lot upon it? Perhaps the option to send out trade caravans to other people?
In that they would appear as an AI trade caravan that can trade shizzle, or at least just straight up deliver something and then RTB.
Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaar stretch would be having a mod like Hospitality involved! XD

With it comes the possibilties to send colonist. The feature isn't totaly complete yet; not all data is transmitted. At the moment, only the skills and the traits are copied to the sent colonist.
On top of that, a lot of small changes have been made to the UI, specially the menu for sending items to other colonies.

anyone else having the problem with not being able to send chat in the server chat.  I can see several people chatting and even send items.  Just cant chat.

I tried to find a possible cause for the bug, but I can't figure it out what could cause this. Is there a message in Debug Log saying "A packet was sent ChatMessagePacket" when you try to send a message ?
Do you click on the button to send a message (and not hitting enter, for example) ?

Update v0.7 is live !
It is mainly an improvement of the transmission of colonists. They keeps a lot more characteristics (physics, backstory, skills, traits, gear and inventory). The only thing that isn't transmitted is the health state. The game now asks you to accept items or colonists before sending them to you.
Full changelog is available here (https://github.com/Longwelwind/Phi/releases/tag/v0.7)

You can download the new version via the links in the first post or via the Steam Workshop.

A listing of servers handled by an other player is available for those who want to make their own server and "advertize" it. There's even an RP server for those who are interested. (http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/732930564/360671352681256029/)

I don't know what it is but it is causing problems as I can not connect to the server
EDIT: Nvm about that, I had to restart the mod multiple times :D
How many times do I have to edit this?: The error happened again, I cannot connect to any servers while the error is happening... Weird

This is so cool! Thanks for making this, this is a really neat concept to explore. I'm looking forward to trying this out.

Is there a chance we'll ever be able to have two players on the same map working together? I can see how that would be a lot tougher to implement though.
Title: Re: [A14] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: Longwelwind on August 13, 2016, 01:45:50 PM
v0.8 is out !
Sending things should be now easier, the interface for it has been remade and it looks more like the usual trade window. You can also send multiple items.
The "Enter" shortcut should now work correctly.

Full changelog is available here (https://github.com/Longwelwind/Phi/releases/tag/v0.8)

When I went to load this mod I get an issue where the game tries to load Biome_Arid.xml and PhiClient.xml at the same time, which causes the game to reset the loading of all mods. When I got this error, the only mod I was loading was Phi. Not sure if anyone else has had this issue.

Did you load Phi before or after core?
Title: Re: [A15] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: Italianguard on October 02, 2016, 12:20:29 AM
I tried it both ways. Before and after core. I also tried both the steam version and the github version.
Title: Re: [A15] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: Jdalt40 on October 02, 2016, 12:39:30 AM
Load mods always after core
Have you restarted the game after applying the mod?
Title: Re: [A15] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: Italianguard on October 02, 2016, 12:47:16 AM
The problem is that the mod never gets applied. It goes to the loading screens, where it says loading defs, initializing, etc... then goes to the error screen saying that the mod couldn't be loaded because the two different files tried to load at the same time. It then turns off all mods. And if I restart the game and try to reload the mod it does the same thing.

Here's pastebin of his output_log.txt from when it started: http://pastebin.com/AjwdD8DF

Post by: jeeohlee on November 05, 2016, 04:03:10 AM
You can connect by the bottom menu ingame. Server -> Configuration -> in the top field you replace "longwelwind.net" (the main server) with "84.200.105.90"

When the main server comes back online you just change the IP back to "longwelwind.net"

But the server is really quiet atm. I suggest to use it mostly if you want to trade with your friends.

I second these requests mod maker, Phi is a stable mod that I feel many more people should use as it opens up the door for inter-game communication and leads to some great works of teamwork being done through trading and assistance.

At the same time, sadly Phi is getting to the point where it reminds me of Starcraft 2 Arcade chat where everyone is screaming at each other, yelling about racial slur that, etc etc. Doesn't happen all the time on Phi but it's only a matter of time. Possibly looking at vote systems for muting people in the system for a day, personal mutes, etc etc?

CCL dependancy has been removed in the last update, in order to make the mod compatible for A15.

Post by: Hikurac on December 27, 2016, 03:14:19 PM
Is this compatible with other mods, like those that add items? Or only vanilla?

EDIT: Got my answer, works fine if both players have the mod apparently.

As for people complaining about balance and exploiting, it's still a single player game. It'd be far easier to just spawn stuff yourself than have your friend send you tons of late-game items. There's no point to it, just have some self control.

Any insights would be wonderful, if this is a known issue.

i got problem from disconncet to server
debug log spam and cant stop

This is because the mod is trying to get data from a server every tick, but since there is no server to connect and no information, it causes an exception and gies the bug.

For mod author:
Could you make a spot that designates where the shipments land. I've seen and experienced many times where I want the shipments to land where I want, but it doesn't do that.

Make sure there are four .dll files in your assembly folder, I had that same issue and was missing an assembly. I also made sure to load PhiClient directly after core in my mod order.

Post by: WereCat88 on January 04, 2017, 05:10:53 AM
I have an idea.

When joining a online server in Rimworld you place your colony on a full-sized planet with other player colonies and make alliances, trade, raid others, and do more things together.

I don't know how doable in terms of modding in Rimworld that is but it would make a whole new gameplay element.
Title: Re: [A16] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: Thyme on January 04, 2017, 06:35:52 AM
Questions like "where do the other colonies go?" "what happens to my caravans when migrating to and from Phi?" need to be answered, because Phi is no persistent (aka no real) multiplayer.

While writing, I had the idea that every player could be a planet (i think we can ignore the need for proper star systems here, and the simulation of them) and trading works via trade ships.
Title: Re: [A16] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies

That would require a lot of changing of the core game, and a massive server to be paid for by the modder.

Not used mono before, so probably me just doing something hilariously wrong. Any suggestions?

Edit: nevermind, got it sorted. For those who come after me you need to be using Mono 3.12.x. I used this (http://blog.rubenwardy.com/2016/07/20/rimworld-install-monodevelop-with-dot-net-3.5/) handy guide to get that sorted. It seems to have been written by One of Us™.

The only change I had to make to that guide was adding /. to the end of the url when adding the apt repositories. Mostly posting this in the hoped the guide maker might see it, sorry.

Code: [Select]
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy/snapshots/3.12.0/. main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list
Might be worth adding a mention of some of this to the 1st post.

so do you have to have the server thing installed for the phi multiplayer to happen and the client zip, is it like a regular rimworld mod where you install it then start up a new colony like normal
Title: Re: [A16] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: Thyme on February 10, 2017, 11:14:55 AM
You unzip the client, place it in your mod directory like any other mod, activate it and enjoy Phi =)

Server is only need if you want to host it. Dunno how to set that up tho
Title: Re: [A16] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: ChaosOverlord on February 17, 2017, 12:15:26 AM
You shouldn't have to do anything to host a server except for the expected port forwarding (if it's not LAN-only).

Problem is I can't get it to work anymore. It worked in A15 but I can't get anyone to connect to it now that this mod has been updated to A16. Maybe it's just the other persons computer...but whenever they try to connect to my server, my server just prints an error message.

Post by: zer02 on February 17, 2017, 06:05:39 AM
Excellent idea, but I have a question concerning gameplay - what will happen and what the settler will receive another player if I send him a settler, with implants of mod Expanded Prosthetics and Organ Engineering (EPOE)?

PS
I think..
If another player has this mod, he will get my settler, just as I sent it to him.
But what will happen to the settler, if the other player does not EPOE mod ?


I apologize in advance for my conversation (I use a translator)

As far as I know, the health status of the colonist will be reset. So, all diseases, prosthetics, drug addictions will be removed and lost body parts magically grow back.

I don't know for sure though, because I have never used that feature so far.

Post by: blub01 on April 22, 2017, 07:43:56 PM
This mod will be mostly unbalanced though am I right? Since players start at different times. Meaning A player could of spent 10 hours on a server. Have over 5000 plasteel charge rifles and power armor, and then a new player joins and that first player can send the second player say 2500 plasteel 3 charge rifles and 3 power armor sets and they have an easy ride through the game. Maybe there should be some limits as to how much you can send and a time limit where it has to recharge?

EDIT: Also, I assume this mod will not work with any mods, as all players need the core game to play without problems with other players on the server? And can the server work if all players have the same mods on that server?

I think it is better if you just keep rimworld multiplayer a private matter for now - get the tech working before you worry about balancing and let the players decide if they want to exploit something or not.

So I accidentally copied the ip incorrectly and included the port, now I can't get the menu to show up. I get this output on launching the game. Also tried reinstalling a fresh copy of the mod to no avail.

Hey FFpotato and anyone else who may run into this. Not sure why it worked, but I seem to have fixed this issue.
I have the Steam Version of the game so my filesystem is different I think. Anyway there were 2 .txt files in my C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\RimWorld folder. One was called phikey.txt and the other was phiserver.txt. I deleted both files and un-subbed from the mod.

Then started up my game to make sure everything worked. Then I alt-tabbed and re-subbed to the mod. Went to my mod like back in RimWorld. Activated phiclient and poof all if right in out in the Rim!

So I hope this may help anyone in my situation.

So uh, I've been having a bit of a problem, the server decides to not send my messages or anyone's messages to me. The chat literally freezes, and sometimes it disconnects.

Will there be a fix for the chat becoming out of focus anytime someone joins or leaves?

It's the server crashing. He has given up on this mod except to update it

Look at the good side, at least he updates this awesome mod and keep the server going!

Awesome, maybe the Yogscast will see it and take the suggestion from their suggestion thread and do a 'quasi-multiplayer' Rimworld stream for their December charity streams/Jingle Jam this year.

Is the A17 version still downloadable please? :)
Title: Re: [A18] Phi - Multiplayer interactions between colonies
Post by: Jdalt40 on December 05, 2017, 02:23:49 AM
Pretty sure that wouldn't be possible, since it's a server, you could be trading stuff that doesn't exist anymore.

This might sound strange, but is there any way to send resources/colonists to a null game for a few minutes and then retreive them? Basically I want to use Phi to initiate a New Game+. I'm aware I could ask another player politely to just resend everything I send him in a few minutes, but it might be asking a lot of time/clicks from a stranger.

Unfortunately the only way to change scenarios/world maps is to start a new game. Without Phi, the only way to NG+ is by manually adding back similar items/pawns.

Sorry if this is in here somewhere - but how does Phi determine the location of the drops when sending or is it just random?

I'm having some issues. I'd like to run a server for my friends, but I'm getting the 'version' error, and I don't seem to know how to fix it where is the .xml I need to edit for the version?

Could the install/running options be broken down in to laymen's terms? It's very confusing, on one hand it says "Just drop it into the mod folder" but there's multiple files. Do I use the client, or the master?

Just FYI, If people only want to trade with others e.g. 24/7 Marketplace, you can try my mod: GlitterWorld Prime (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=36743.0)

It's run from a dedicated central server in London, UK.

How doe PHI compare to Glitterworld Prime?

Currently amazingly, seeing as the main server for phi has been down for 2-3 days.

A new version has been released (v0.14), it should some of the "hacks" that some people experience during the week. It also adds animal trading, thanks to thomotron.

Suggestion

Snailmail option ~ for those out there with old school playthroughs, they can send things via pawn.  like Earthbound's Escargo Express (SNES game, you owe it to yourself to experience its glory) this dude(or dudette) in a uniform matching the tech level of the player runs in with like 50 movementspeed, to your chosen area, drops it, then runs off just as quick

Delivery type

Snail - a regular pawn drops it off
Swift - a superspeed pawn drops it off
Crash - its launched at you via crashing pod
Safe - sent via drop

Accuracy

Anywhere - cheapest, just like it sounds like, might not be reachable
Close - more expensive, u can probably reach it easily
Home - even more expensive, open area in your home
Beacon - delivered to your beacon

Hey guys, this mod looks awesome, but I'm having trouble connecting...

I've tried connecting to the default server (Longwelwind.net), but nothing happens. Is that server down?

I can connect to a server running on the same machine as my game, but if i try to run a server for my friends to join, they cant connect (port forwarded). Anything I need to look out for?

Hey I got a question.

The description says the mod doesn't allow Real Time Multiplayer. So does that just mean two players cannot control the same colony at once ?  I wish to play this game with my friend. I don't want us to control the same colony. I want us to have different colonies in the same world. But that would be real time multiplayer. So I am kind of confused on that matter. Can someone please explain? Thanks in advance!
