    I believe the company run servers are wiped periodically and everyone restarts, or at least it was true back during launch.

    It's persistent.  However,. Depending on the server ruleset, someone can wreck it.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    Or hackers just waltz inside your base at will because as all survival games with base building - its exploitable as hell

    Right now, there are NO paid DLC's for this game. I believe there will be once the game leaves EA and goes into official Launch.

    During EA there are 2 types of server wipes (official servers only, private servers would need to wipe via their admins).
    1st type is everything wiped EXCEPT player levels (items, buildings, thralls would be removed).
    2nd type is full wipe meaning just what it says, total server wipe of everything.

    This then leaves and paves the way for any issue's to be easier to see (however with the big update they tended to re-introduce nigh on every single bug, exploit and game issue) have not been in since the 2.3GB patch earlier this week, so don't know what was fixed and what was broken.

    Game is good (cough was good) but it does have issue's (like any game in EA mode).

    Ok, before anyone get's the wrong idea here. You can purchase the CORE game which offers 1 portion of the map. While it's a huge area, the new EXPANSION which includes the lands to the north with a new snowy biome is not included. Unless you're ok with calling $40 for both as an ok price. Despite all that, I'm not sure I understand the problem with paid DLC in the form of expansions as wrong for a game in EA. I mean, it could just as easily been delivered as DLC AFTER the game launched, so what difference does it make.
    Would that difference be that they didnt offer a released from EA product then sought funding for a paid expansion? Is the game released or not? Or is it ok to cloud the EA waters even more.

    Where does it state in any Early Access game that they can't produce expansions for the game while it's still in development? No where. If you don't want the expansion, than don't buy it.

    No, there is DLC and it costs. It's $30 for the base and $30 for the DLC, at least on the Steam page.

    So what do you do in this game, exactly?  Solo, and in a group?  Gather, kill to get resources, craft armor and weapons and build shelters?  I've never played a survival game before, not even Minecraft.
    Simplified summary of Conan Exiles:
    • You are an Exile who has been freed
    • You must survive the environment ( eat, drink, build shelter, craft armor and weapons )
    • You must progress ( enslave thralls, improve weapons, armor and your base(s) )
    • There are dungeons to investigate ( kill bosses and loot treasure )
    • There are stories, journals, letters, giant magical tablets ( all help you understand the game )
    Things still waiting on production:
    • Sorcery ( Conan's form of magic system )
    • I read something about city atmosphere / livelihood ( not sure if this is NPC or Player city )
    • I believe there are mounts in the game ( camels and maybe horses, not sure )

    If you could actually read, you would know, that DLC is only upgrade to Barbarian Edition. Barbarian Edition includes books, comics, T-Shirt etc. There is no DLC with content for Conan Exiles (yet).
    I bet there will be DLCs later (probably after release), but its not true today.

    It's DLC regardless. There is a DLC pack (that's what Funcom labeled it on Steam). So take it up with FC. I'm just pointing out that there is a DLC pack for the game. It's $30.

    I see what the confusion is (and it's Steam's fault)

    So "no" there is no paid extra content as far as the game is concerned. For example I have the first iteration of the game AND received the upgrade, dlc, whatever for no additional cost.

    The steam page seems to have two products:

    Conan Exiles
    Conan Exiles Barbarian edtion

    Both are the original game. The Barbarian edition includes comics, soundtracks, shirt etc.

    Then they list the upgrade to Barbarian edtion as 30 dollars.

    Then they have a separate list of "dlc". But if you read what that dlc is it's the "Barbarian edition upgrade.

    It makes it look like it's completely separate addition to the game "proper" but it's not.

    This completly False the North Expansion was a free update to the core game .....
  • SpellshaperSpellshaper Member UncommonPosts: 419
    There is no DLC, there is only upgrade offer for deluxe edition. Because Steam is trash, there is no other way than label it as DLC. So before spreading false information, read the steam page. I dont care what excuses you have for your misinformation, but its just not true.

    Again, as i said on the first page of this thread, you are wrong about the paid DLC. You should really look at the steam page before you go off spouting this nonsense. The 30$ barbarian edition/upgrade gives you out of game items... comics, soundtrack an AOC mount etc...

    The difference is they PROMISE to deliver a full game but tell early access spenders to TRUST them,that they will eventually deliver the full game.

    Honestly this should be a no brainer ,everyone should understand this is double dipping and deceiving and ripping off customers.

    This would be like taking a gamer's money for 1 map and no content,then selling him 5% of the game DLC by DLC,so another 20 DLC sales and you finally get the proper full game.So by the end of it all,you would have paid 20x for one game,a complete con job and yet i am seeing that people are still dumb to the scams of big business.

    I used this simple math for a reason.I mentioned 1 map,before you scoff imagine a game like Ton Clancy ,originally released with what 2 maps and Overwatch was taking your money with 1 map.I then used the number 20 because 20 maps would be considered a decent normal value of map content in a full game.So then imagine they start selling you the other 19 maps 1 by one,yep you go it,you have been duped big time.

    I am not commenting on weather any information here is true or not,i am simply commenting on the premise and facts about DLC's.
    Even still you have to use common sense,MOST gamer's unless really new should have somewhat an understanding of what a full game should contain and if a game looks completely unfinished.

    Outside a game items is fine,if it stays outside the game,i am ok with that.What really bothers me though and i base this off the past is that if Funcom DID turnaround and release a DLC,these same people defending definitions and factual comments about content would still defend as a fanbois tooth n nail and NEVER admit bad business practices.

    Personally the mere use of the term Early access is bullshit,100% bull and i see a lot of devs doing it now.Taking money for unfinished work is just garbage.if they want $5 for EA that is different but msopt devs are asking full game prices ,so yeah bullshit.

    And again, you're wrong. While i have defended Funcom in this thread a few times I've spoken out openly about Arks paid dlc while still in early access. Selling DLC for a game that is still unreleased is shady f@cking business.  

  • besteverbestever Member UncommonPosts: 880
    IF I DO IT IN ALL CAPS DOES IT GET THROUGH THAT THICK SKULL? NO PAID DLC. The game cost $30 unless you want the collectors edition.

    saying early access games are unreleased is nonsense, they're released games, also even if it wasn't playable in any form, the most popular franchises do it with season passes and whatnot, it's not shady business it's the norm, they'd not perform these practices with so many games if they didn't work

    Regardless whether it has become the norm, the practice is still shady.
