Total Miner Discussion / [Other] Total Miner Discord
« on: December 27, 2016, 05:04:45 PM »





Total Miner Now has a Discord Server, everyone is welcome and encouraged to join.

This is a great way to meet and stay in contact with active total miner players, new total miner players, and people who may not play Total Miner yet but are interested in checking out the game. So whether If you're working on something neat in TM you want to show off, just want some quick advice with a script, or simply want to gossip and find new people to play with, hop in.

You can also take part in Contests / Events / Xbox-Steam Card Giveaways

Simple questions can be answered relatively fast in the discord, although if you have a question requiring a more technical answer we ask that you post it here on the forums. This way a better answer can be provided, and it's logged for all others to see who might also have the same question.

Craig our developer is also a member of this chat.

Anyone who joins before the PC version is released, will be tagged "Pre-PC"

Also using the same roles as the forums/Color Spice, so many of your forum positions / awards / permissions will carry over as roles on the Discord Server

We'd love to rely on the older experienced members to help answer new and prospective members questions.
Keep in mind the Discord is still brand new, so expect it to be a little quiet at times as we're just getting started!



===================================================



Update 1/2/17

I want to thank everyone who has participated so far, we have had a great start thanks to you all. Already some great original content has been posted.

Today we reached a record high With nearly 5,500 messages sent over the last 24 hours. Each day we are gaining new members from all over, we have had a high number of steam players join, some who used to play total miner 4 to 5 years ago! And a few have never even heard of Total Miner thanks to our advertisements.

Please feel welcome to invite all your friends to join, spreading awareness is a community effort, the more the merrier!
Once pc hits we are expecting the discord to explode with new members. get your pre-pc tag before that happens.

1/6/17 At 12:00AM Midnight We will close week one, and award our current members with the discord equivalent of the forums award "founder" This is a one time deal, So don't miss out!



I also want to extend thanks to all our staff, thanks a bunch guys for making this work!

Contest League



We are also planning to start a contest league for total miner this year, however we are going to wait and start the league until PC version is out.

Links for everything you need to know on how to sign up for the league can be found on the announcements chat on our discord server

Currently there will be a few stand alone contests, and random give aways

Assorted Types of Contests will be held Bi-weekly,

Prizes will either be Xbox Live gift cards or Steam cards/games at request. Seasonal winners will win a plaque along with an undetermined cash award.

(The current calendar is an example and WILL change, the League will not start until PC Release. And because we don't have an exact date on when that may be all dates will change/be pushed back)

All links to contests sign ups and their times will posted on the calendar dates a week before the actual contests, as well as pinned in the discord announcements, More detailed information and rules are also linked on the calendar. It's pretty much the master source.

Parkour and PVP contests will be run through http://challonge.com/
So make sure to create an account there, It makes sign-ups / check-ins much more organized.
Again all "challonge" links registrations and check ins can be found on the calendar

All rules and points scoring data are subject to change before the start of the league, its semi-wip

As of now contests will consist of

PVP
Parkour
Building
Particles
Survival

And will continue to grow


The points system will be unique to contest types so contests such as building will offer more seasonal points than those of parkour. I'll do my best to find an appropriate balance


Also your Contest Ideas are wholeheartedly welcome,

Your world / Null v3 Challenge
« on: September 05, 2016, 11:43:18 AM »
Look for "Derfen Steve" hosting Null v3 after 2.5


Traditional-ISH Challenge Map, It should be fun for noobs and professionals alike.

It is a very simple world? It's only focus is to bring as much pleasure as possible for a challenge genre. Whether you're new to challenges or If you're a hardened veteran craving a good adventure, don't miss out. I created this to be my ideal map that I dream of joining when searching for challenge maps, Since none exist.

No Pictures, No info, only awareness. Not to worry, I won't make joining, favoriting, and rating a waste of your time.

I'll update this topic after 2.5



Oh yea, I'll have some "goodies" (Derfen style) for the first x# of people who complete it ;)

Ideas / Clan name display
« on: March 31, 2016, 12:38:20 AM »
When in a clan, Clan name should display in player HUD, and also above players nameplates or next to banners.

Ideas / Auto name/Create script unused reference.
« on: February 04, 2016, 11:47:58 PM »
Quote
If the command you have highlighted in the script editor is a command that references another script, such as a Script command or a SetEventScript command, pressing the Start button will open a new editor window with the referenced script loaded.


When pressing start on a script that does not have a reference link existing yet, It should create a new script with the title that you have tried to reference.

Bug Reports [Retail] / Avatar bug,
« on: February 04, 2016, 03:44:03 PM »
An extremely rare glitch that occurs for remotes who have a default avatar selected,

Once in a while, that sed remote will join a world and see ALL other players in the same skin as their selected default, Even though no one else sees anyone in the skin. (unless of course they were already wearing that skin)

Bug Reports [Retail] / Items fully transparent
« on: February 04, 2016, 03:24:19 PM »
It seems if you swing an item(perhaps even your hand) continuously, eventually the item will go fully transparent, when you release the trigger you can see your equipped item again.

I was mining with a titanium pick and it was invisible for like 3 minutes until I released the trigger. Its only happened twice and I have no idea what causes it, it seems to be random. It might occur only when breaking blocks as It did for me both times, but I have no way to confirm thanks to it being difficult to reproduce.

Ideas / Randomize Seed, static params
« on: February 04, 2016, 12:12:04 AM »
We need an option that will allow us to change or randomize the world seed without it changing our params,
It gets annoying having to enter my parameters every time I change the seed.


Perhaps on the first time your loading a new world the params are randomized, but if you change the seed your params will stick.


EDIT: It would be even nicer if on the terrain preview screen we could keep pressing "x" to randomize the seed without it changing any of the params.

Bug Reports [Retail] / Invaderman Unlock information
« on: January 31, 2016, 07:22:22 PM »
After we decided 1.5m was too low, you forgot to change the total rush Invaderman unlock documentation to 1.75m

Bug Reports [Retail] / Cloud causing transparency
« on: January 25, 2016, 11:00:32 PM »
When viewing stained glass through clouds from below cloud level, the glass appears transparent,

oddly This only works when viewing upwards, and not from above the clouds

DemiGod

Boss Mob (5 minute time-limit to defeat else mob flees) (once banished mob does not re-spawn) (Ideal 10+ night cycles to run into mob)

HermesWraith --- Has a chance to spawn at night, always Spawns with necromancer Party
Zeus --- Has a chance to spawn at day, always Spawns with holy Party

The idea is to jack the health of these mobs really high and have the angels/skeletons only unkill-able until boss is banished, so its like a "raid boss" that need a party of your own or your friends to defeat, Killing/banishing would unlock demi-god or demi-goddess depending on what party was destroyed, Only one player would unlock, therefore everyone will be trying to drain the mob health.

Exceptionally Rare spawn Occurrence

Total Miner Discussion / Total Rush Discussion and Highscores [TOP TEN]
« on: September 28, 2015, 10:35:39 PM »

Guidelines,


1, Only the TOP 10 scores will be added to the OP,

2, Each of the TOP 10 scores, will be verified, (Only way truly to confirm score, due to old bug I don't want to be a stickler but I want the list to be completely accurate/legit.)

3, Feel free to post your high-scores scores even if they do not make the top ten,

4, This can be used as a general total rush discussion topic, your tactics/questions ect.

Tips From Craig
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Some facts/hints.

  • Your hitbox is the little red box at the center of your ship (2x2 pixels). Enemy bullets must hit that little red box to destroy you. They have no effect when hitting other parts of your ship. Use this knowledge to navigate through dense bullet waves.
  • The faster you kill an enemy ship, the more points you get for killing it.
  • Don't stay in one place, especially when fighting bosses.
  • Only blue aliens leave pickups.
  • Red pickups increase your firepower.
  • It takes approx 60 pickups to reach maximum fire power (640 bullets per second).
  • Every blue alien killed will leave a pickup until you have reached maximum firepower then roughly 1 in 3 will leave a pickup.
  • If you collect a red pickup when you already have maximum firepower, it will destroy all enemy bullets around your ship.
  • White pickups give you a tail ship.
  • You can have no more than 5 tail ships.
  • If you collect a white pickup when you already have 5 tailships, it will act like a red pickup.
  • Killing a big ship (red destroyers + bosses) causes screen shake during which time you cannot die.
  • Use left/right bumpers to fire a smart bomb. Smart bombs destroy all enemy bullets, all small enemies and cause strong damage to bigger enemies.
  • Using a smart bomb sacrifices a tail ship, so you must have at least one tail ship to use a smart bomb.
  • If you already have 5 tail ships and a white pickup is on the screen, and you don't need to use a smart bomb, try to delay collecting the pickup until you need to use a smart bomb. First use the smart bomb, then collect the pickup.
  • Bosses have turrets. You can take out the turrets separately to reduce the bosses firepower.
