Fun hybrid MMO game who's goal is to take over the other side by shooting and taking over bases.https://store.steampowered.com/app/505460/Foxhole/https://foxhole.fandom.com/wiki/Community_Guides/Getting_Started
Almost everything is user-crafted and there are heavy aspects of logistics involved, as well as disrupting the logistics of the other team.
The game has an end-point when you take over the main home-base of the other team (or something like that).
The mane problem with the game? It does not have a pony clan as far as I can tell.
Bought the game a few days ago and searched pretty hard for a pony clan but couldn't find much of anything.
My goal is to try to drag some of you in with me and have fun shooting at blueberries (wardens) - which means if you play, it should be for the south, the Colonials.
Any good screencaps of gameplay? I want to see more.
lul... was playing, gathering materials when I noticed this... marker out in the middle of the sea.
Markers are typically used to say something important for that spot (like supplies or badguys or badguys in tanks)
Been playing this game off and on for a few months and have been really enjoying it. I'd love to play in a /mlpol/ or pone group in general.
Well, it looks like the Colonials lost, and now there is a new war just starting.
fukit, what should the name be for a foxhole pony clan?
There are already names out there like BDSM and lolisquad (kek)
I see a CMC clan, but that is for something boring "Colonial Marine Corps" apparently. Sad :(
Neo-Aryan Zsomething Isomethings?
Aryanne's Friendship Troopers?
Aryanne's Bombs Of Peace?
Aryanne's Futa Penetrator?
Maybe HorseHole Battalion?
Actually, maybe something more simple... DrunkenPony
I like HorseHole Batallion.
well, I like it too, so it shall be. HorseHole Battalion - join live1 on the Colonial side. It will be just a squad for now, so it will only show up on the right hand side of the screen if somebody is online and in that squad.
password will be: iwtcird
herp, HorseHoles is the longest name it can be. 10 chars maximum length. Any other ideas?
Alright, well, I forgot that there isn't a password for squads. Whoever made the squad instead approves of whoever wants to join.
Default key to talk through squad chat is G, to chat with people around you its T
If everyone in the squad (HorseHoles) leaves, then the squad goes away. When somebody logs back in, you are still in the squad and made the squad leader.
Hop in the matrix channel I made on the mlp.chat server:https://goto.mlp.chat/#/room/#games:mlp.chat?via=mlp.chat&via=aryanne.cafe&via=pony.cx
Had a bunch of fun playing yesterday, something I rarely get to do these days. Maybe I'll get to hop on a bit more tonight.
I tried to play, but the game crashes when I access the map. Seems the game hates my laptop.
what kind of laptop is it? I'm just playing it on my desktop with linux (manjaro). Works well.
It's rather old. It has a lot of RAM, but graphically, it chokes and dies. It must be trying to render something while in the map and it locks up everything. Shortly after it crashes.
Will be (and am currently) playing a bunch of foxhole today.
Remember to join live1, fight for the Colonial side, and join the horseholes squad (right side of screen)
had a bunch of fun playing with a couple other anons new to the game over the weekend. Jumped into combat and died a few times. Cleared a scrapyard, ran a couple of logistics runs, and ended with some more murder death kill.
Much fun was had
Ill put aside some time this weekend
Foxhole devstream - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxiEjAzJyjE
I don't have time to watch all of it today, probably will tomorrow. Seems interesting.
lul, I lied. They are changing so much stuff... so much restructuring. I couldn't help but to watch the whole thing.
The update is set to be on the 22nd this month and is in playtesting in the dev branch (you can jump in the dev branch when you select live1 or live2... dev is the third option)
this game seems fun.
mlpol should make a squad and do something together some time.
Looks like Colonials are kicking butt this war.
I'm going to be playing in live1, remember to join the horseholes squad on the right side of the screen
lul tank - found this amusing.
I chose live 2 to start a war. :(
Welp, Colonials just won in live1. Can still join and shoot people but the war is not reset yet. Normally its a day or two cooldown before everything is reset.
Tried to join the devbranch to look at some of the new stuff being rolled in, but it said there was an error connecting to the server.
I think at this point I'll make a proper regiment for you guys to join in, instead of just a squad that we have been using. At the moment regiments are the closest thing to clan groups. Which brings me to something I've been pondering how to best achieve...
How do you guys want to communicate? Voice is really the best way when doing stuff in-game together, and the squad chat is good... but its not enough.
I can set up a mumble server no problem and there won't be any data-tracking. I've linked the game matrix channel which is also good. Could also set up a discord space, but I'm rather resistant to using discord cause they are shitheads.
Any preference for methods of communication?
while I familiar with discord. I don't know much about mumble, or how to find a link to it anywhere
I decided to build a discord space. Yes I hate it, but I will have other target audiences that are a little more lazy than you guys.https://discord.gg/tdRMPCwZ
I'll likely get around to building a mumble server for proper security on my home server that I also built. Probably will get around to that sometime later, likely this weekend. Any suggestions for a domain name?https://www.mumble.info/
for information on mumble - its fantastic open source software that works well on all platforms.
I've been playing Foxhole a bunch lately and it sets the bar for team-based MMOs. I don't play Collies though, Wardens are the true choice because their cause is the reclamation of their homeland from the Colonial scum. Also Shard 2 has a better community than Shard 1, it's less try-hard and clans don't hoard resources they'll never use.
Though, rumors suggest there will be a server merge with the upcoming update. A big, symmetrical map offers a lot of possibilities.
Heh, well, there are a lot of changes coming even at a fundamental level to how the game is played. Not to mention all the different guns, shirts, and other stuff that are coming for both colonials and wardens. I was dinking around in the devbranch a bit with the volta with a couple other randos and the volta is going to be the new sniper rifle for the colonials... it can do one-shot take-downs at any range, seemingly at about 40% chance.
Its going to be a week or so before it all gets rolled in to mainline, so tweaks are still possible. Still, I think after this update in general it won't make as much of a difference for which faction has stronger guns.
Also, I fight for the South.
Finally got around to updating my server, and spawned a container (LXC) for a proper mumble server.
What is mumble? It is a free and open source VoIP client-server system that has been around a long time that works very well on all platforms, including cellphones. Mumble is designed for group voice communication for games or anything that you want in a secure way.
Download mumble: https://www.mumble.info/downloads/
connect to horseholes.brony.team
use the default port (64738)
The rules for using my service are simple:
1 - No Wardens or Communists
2 - No FurFags
3 - By using this service you consent that IWTCIRD
I have it set up for the fledgling HorseHoles clan, but if anyone wants to use it for anything else that is fine too.
Keep in mind that the discord that was set up (https://discord.gg/tdRMPCwZ)
is mostly for faggots who don't know the difference between open source, freeware, shareware, and pay-walled software.
Learn the difference and don't let them collect your data.
Use mumble, it is cozy.
After a long and grueling war in Colonial home territories, Wardens have clinched a victory in Shard 2 just hours after winning Shard 1! The timing was perfect because the devs were going to shut down the war tomorrow anyway for updates.
In sadder news, I heard from other sources that the two shards won't be merged after all. I was hoping to fight alongside the faggots on Shard 1, but it's probably for the best as I wouldn't want to be fighting you.
