Nope - I normally just play the singleplayer, which is serverless - At other times, I purchase my own server through Gportal. Its not that expensive, and its rather fun to play together, and its also fun to just have your own server. The difference between singleplayer and having a server, is that some stuff, like fish traps that fill over time, are easier to maintain on a server where time passes when you are offline as well.
On the singleplayer, time only passes when you are online.
I dont have the best experience with public servers - Since there are A-hats everywhere, they tend to border up places with walls, making it difficult to have fun. I don’t enjoy that, nor really pvp - I am not interested in that.
I know there are a few rp servers which discourages that kind of behaviour, but those are not normal servers and are hosted by private people. I’d like to try that one day.
I’d also be up to join a server with you guys, but lets see what you guys say once you try it out!
