These are mine, are yours similar?
Fair game- its up to my discretion to kill you and not feel bad about it. Doesn’t mean I’ll always pull the trigger of course…
-If you’re outside my house and you get to any point where I feel you’re too close.
-if I see you at any time with a weapon pointed in my general direction
-Running at me makes you fair game no matter what you’re holding
-If your door is open or your house is not yet complete you’re fair game, but its a real bitch to die when you’re trying to build so I leave these folks alone in most cases.
-if you just looted something I wanted
-if you’re alone outside at night by a campfire you’re almost begging for me to kill you.
-If you shoot at me first
bad form- I frown upon myself and others when I or they don’t follow these rules.
- I don’t try to break into folks’ homes. I may take a pot shot at you from a distance though.
- I don’t go out of my way to kill fresh spawns. If you’ve just died and all you have is a flare don’t run up to me and go about your business.
- I haven’t had the chance to but I wouldn’t break a spawn bed.
- No intentional grief building/door spamming
Peace negotiations as follow/How to get friendly
The chat is a crapshoot so the best way to do things is /msg “username”. If you want to approach someone they may not kill you if you’re holding a flare. Do a few crouches to get their attention but don’t crouch walk because that looks like you’re trying to steady your aim (for a gun you may not even have).
Try to setup a voice network over steam/teamspeak/vent if you can. If you don’t have access to any of those I’d just be a cold blooded killer and pillage everyone you meet. If you use steam and add them to your friends list you can create a group and have a rudimentary voice channel with you and a group of friends if you’re too poor for a voip server. Hopefully there will be a voice chat option pretty soon which will make this operation a bit smoother.
