Re: Spiders - Apparently the glowy floating obelisks can be used to summon boss-type monsters, one of which is a spider. I'm not saying that's necessarily what that dossier is describing, but... Maybe?

You would be correct. The post states it's The Broodmother. It also states you need tribute to summon her so I'd say you're correct.

There is a launch option that a bunch of streamers are using to join by IP. I haven't gotten any of them to reveal it however.

I thought those obelisks were similar to rust airdrops and gave you loot if you walked up and opened it. Boss spawns are pretty cool too.

You're not wrong. The different-colored beams of light (I've seen white, yellow, green, and I think blue?) point to crate drop locations that you can open if you meet a certain level requirement. I wouldn't call those obelisks, though. That said, the thing I'm referring to isn't exactly an obelisk, either, since it's basically a giant floating construct that seems to be located over an arena or altar of some sort.

E: Do we have a Steam group or Mumble channel for this?

I saw the ones with the level req's from watching liriks stream. Never got to see him open one though. Could be both, who knows.

So their server host exe literally has no ini or any kind of config that I can see yet. I am willing to bet that there is an argument you can switch upon launch of the game to try to direct connect. That is probably what is doing it. There are password protected servers starting to appear in the server listing. If anyone gets one up I would suggest we password it for the time being as the hype train is plowing hard.

Last I heard passworded servers were causing client crashes if you tried to connect from the browser. The streamers I saw using those passworded servers were using a launch option on steam to direct connect.

Yeah I figured that was the case. If anyone spots the syntax for the launch arguments it would help out a lot.

To launch and connect, just put the server's IP after the executable, or by itself in the "Launch Options" dialog in Steam. Alternatively, when in game press tab to open a console and type "open <ipaddr>"

drat I can imagine at HQ how it's going.

"Sir, our infrastructure just can't handle this many users... we didn't plan for it"

"What about singleplayer then? Just imagine all the bad reviews on Steam!"

<30 FPS on absolute lowest with a GTX680, 1600x900 or whatever the default windowed resolution is. Can't connect to any servers, so this is in single player.
