If I was to host a lan server would it be the same Lego universe I play from 2010-2012?
Short Answer: No
Long Answer: I had written half a post in a somewhat unfriendly matter before realizing once again, that this site features no indication of any state of any project at all. As a moderator i’d have preferred if you used the search on these forums to learn more before posting, but it’s actually fine that you raise this issue to our attention.
Depending on which version you can get to work, LUNI can go as far as creating and playing with your character, sending mail, writing in chat, switching between worlds and (in some rare cases) spawn NPCs which don’t move and don’t do anything. Still a LAN server is not recommended as any source probably has several vulnerabilities, that go beyond simple crashes and might allow someone to corrupt your whole system.
Oh btw, have a look at this and the rest of that blog.
@xiphoseer I will add a state for this project; do you think it would be best as a new page under Info? Or maybe under Download?
Probably the FAQ since it really is a frequently asked question. Maybe multiple slightly different ones.
Q: I want to play the game, how do I do that?
A: Currently you can download a LU client and the LUNI server v0.6 to get a very incomplete but mostly working server. For multiplayer servers you will probably need to wait for a public server as it is harder to set up, like the one CuzItsJonny used to provide or DLU.
Q: I want to host a LAN Server to play with my friends
A: … 0.8-dev; not recommend; vulnerable; port forwarding or hamachi.
Q: What is the LUNI Server capable of?
A: … v0.8-dev: multiplayer, chat, mail, char creation, sometimes NPC; v0.6: visiting worlds
You’ll need to download it from its source on github and compile it yourself. There is no packaged version to just install and run. It has some quirky requirements like the names files in a specific location, which may not be there in the last repo version.
That doesn’t exist for much the same reasons why you should be careful setting up a public server.
Just to give an example: Timtech and Alanzote (currently working for Egmo) had a length discussion back in November because they failed, trying to apply assumptions from the old versions to mine.
I’m tempted to write a tutorial but I wont for known reasons. Hit me up on skype (same username), give me a strong reason why you’ll not become the next Egmo or Lego Club and I might tell you what you need to keep in mind.
Tip: Ports to forward – 1001, 2002, 2003, 2004.
