A Guide to Attributes
« on: September 30, 2014, 06:42:14 PM »
What are attributes in total miner forge?

Well, first off, if you have not heard of attributes, they are certain search restrictions that you can place on your world so that people viewing the list of join-able lobbies over xbox live can get a general idea about what the world is.

And here is where things get complicated. There are a number of different attributes that one can place on their world. They are as follows:

Adventure
Arena
Challenge
Component
Construction
Deathmatch
Exploration
RPG
Skilling
Survival

So, with so many different attributes out there, which one should YOU pick to define your world? In order to try to help answer that question, here are some brief definitions of each attribute type:

Adventure
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Adventure maps emphasize combat and lore. On Adventure maps, there are typically expansive questing systems that follow developed characters and have players overcoming great obstacles.


Arena
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Arena worlds are built to pit players against combat-based obstacles. Sometimes, this includes PvP matches, and other times this includes mob fights.


Challenge
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Challenge maps pit players against non-combat based obstacles. Such as movement based obstacles (Parkour Worlds), text based obstacles (Quizzes), and more of the like.


Component
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Component worlds are made to show off component packs that players have built. Sometimes, Component worlds feature kits that players are willing to share with fellow total miners.


Construction
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
The Construction attribute is made for worlds to showcase builds that the host has created.


Deathmatch
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Deathmatch worlds are combat-oriented lobbies, with the outlying difference between them and Arena worlds being that Deathmatch worlds are exculsively PvP.


Exploration
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Exploration worlds have players sightseeing whatever sort of breathtaking landscape the host has created. Typically, exploration worlds do not feature much combat or questing.


RPG
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
RPG lobbies are a mix of Exploration worlds and Adventure worlds. They feature incredible landscapes/buildings, and a blend of combat, questing, and loot. Sometimes, building is also a feature of RPG worlds.


Skilling
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Skilling maps are made primarily for the purpose of advancing one's skill level. This attribute will be a feature of 2.XX.


Survival
Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Oftentimes, Survival lobbies are made to simulate the survival or Dig Deep gametypes, with some creative flavor (such as generated structures, and possibly questing) thrown in.

Any feedback is appreciated! I tried to keep things pretty brief. Hopefully it still got the points across...

Some of the time hosts incorrectly attribute their maps.

1, People don't do it incorrectly on accident, the attributes effect the flow of people in your map alot, Challenge is the most popular so alot of people set theirs to that.

2, This should be in the "Guides" section

Yup, it is a strategy that players sometimes use to get more rates. I find it a bit ridiculous.
2, This should be in the "Guides" section
I don't have the ability to move it there. If bob feels that it is a decent enough guide, and he comes across it, then he'll take care of it.

Errrm, since multiplayer first came out Ive always thought Concstruction was just a map for looks with nothing to do other than fly around and look at it, Well that's always how I have imagined it! :P

Eh. I'd classify that more as component. Although, there is a lot more foot traffic on Construction.

Not if its not a component :P ATM I would classify my world as a construction as there is nothing to do yet its just for something to look at, at the moment :P
