oh, well mostly its for the balancing reasons, balancing the game around p8 setting was impossible and the exploit of it to gain exp was just too great, so we had to remove it.

But before you start, this topic has been discussed over a 100 times by a lot of people and there is no way to bring p8 command back even for just sp.

Wouldn't the decrease of exp gain solve the issue? Cut it to like 125% of normal experience on P8. Most guys played that for drop increase chance anyways, not for exp. At the moment it is impossible to create a really endgame char in single player within reasonable amount of time. You are either forced to trade (which is basically impossible in single as single player trade = dupe and if you ask me copying best items and sending them to others is far more pathological than players8) or invest 99999999 hours in vain hope that you get something rare.

read here on pages 2 and 3 regarding how you can increase the players count in SP up to 8 players : http://forum.median-xl.com/viewtopic.ph ... 8&start=10 .

then read here on the latest Sigma version changelog info (nerfs) regarding Experience gain https://www.median-xl.com/changelog.php


so , yes , you can play /players 8 in SP . it just requires more work to do it than just simply typing a "/players" command , like it did for so many years before. this method described above is impossible to be removed , so the fact that the /players command does no longer exist it does not mean that you can't have a 8 players party . it's just more annoying and time consuming to do it , nothing more

so you agreed to keep allowing (up to) 8 players parties in MP (called "balancing the game" ) , but the /players 8 setting for SP is somewhat gamebreaking? :coolstorybob:

how does the real party , of actual 8 different players , is different that a single player with a /players 8 setting ? actualy , the real party is more advantaged since you got a real 8 kill power , while on the other hand for the SP /players 8 the game is more painfull since you need to do it all alone , not having any help from other real 7 players .

any idea if you can use a .bat to open multiple instances instead of using sandboxie or w/e? the idea is that it'd open them so fast it'd get around the instance lock. i do this for botting runescape but idk how it'd fair with the launcher and whatnot
