On April 7th (19:00 GMT), the Offworld Community Discord is hosting the 2nd April Fools Cup, a team tournament event where we are going to explore some co-op game modes using mods that Blues and philothanic created for this event.
This is very much not supposed to be a serious event. New players are as welcome to join as experienced ones.
The event will be played over 5 rounds (roughly 3 hours). The team with the most points cookies wins Rhahi’s hand drawn golden cookie jar. Game modes are listed on the event spreadsheet
Voice communication is not required but recommended. No DLC required.
Sign up on the community discord server.
Players will be assigned to teams semi-randomly. We reserve the right to rebalance them as needed. Let us know if you have any preferred teammates and we will try to put you in the same team, unless that would make teams significantly imbalanced.
Round 1: SAL-9000 (by philothanic based on kiooeht’s HAL-9000 mod)
All players are assisted by an AI that will potentially make decisions every 5 seconds. AI won’t buy stocks or found for the players.
Round 2: Tag Teams Mod - Shifting Control (by Blues)
Players on a team will swap bases around 21:00 every sol.
Round 3: Tag Teams Mod - Tag Teams (by Blues)
Only one base per team. The player in control of it changes every sol.
Round 4: Archon Mode Mod - Split Control (by Blues)
Only one base per team. All players are in control at the same time, but only have access to certain UI elements (resources, buildings, stocks, black market, founding/HQ upgrades)
Round 5: Archon Mode Mod - Full control (by Blues)
Only one base per team. All players are in control at the same time (no restrictions)
