This mod is a work in progress, and while I will make a reasonable effort to ensure there are no bugs, some users may occasionally run into them. There are no guarantees regarding stability or crashes with the server or client.
This mod is only functional because of the use of a third party server. The only information that is sent to the server is, nearby players, your name (the one visible to everyone), and your message. None of this information is stored. Player clients do not interact with one another, all communication happens with the server, the server then relays the message to the appropriate players.
Some updates are server side and do not require a new download.
As of right now, game pass is not supported, this may change in the future.
