I've recently started playing SE5 again and this time around I actually started by hosting a game. It's nowhere near as difficult as I thought it would be (this particular fear came from my experiences hosting for other games such as Garry's Mod and Minecraft... My God were those a pain in the--) and as such I thought of playing a few games with you lovely people. I found myself wondering, however, what the largest game ever hosted was. How many players did it have? How many systems did it have? What mod was used? Back to top

The maximum number of players PBW supports per game is 20, probably because that was the limit in SE4 - not what the actual limit of SE5 is. I think the system limit is 255. I'm sure both of those limits have been reached at some point That's no space station - it's a spreadsheet! Back to top
Okay, 20 players... It's possible, but not advisable? Interesting. Anyone know what kind of things go wrong when you have so many players? Do things get increasingly unstable as the number of players increases? Back to top
