I normally don’t play multiplayer or with others. This weekend, though, a relative wanted to have a “Play Date” and join me in one of my Creative mode saves. I’m sure we didn’t do something right, though.
I texted him my Steam (PC) Friends code. He texted me his PlayStation “Friends” code. He also enabled “Cross-platform” on his PlayStation.
We entered the code and we each shows as a friend. He shows as a friend now, but the network settings “Current Group” shows only my Steam name, not both of ours. When we tried to meet at the Nexus, he could not see me and vice versa. He did not appear in a “Nearby Players” list either.
If he then entered “Multiplayer” not “Play Game” [others can join] option, we could see each other, but he was not able to go through a Nexus teleporter with me.
The “Game Play: Other explorers may join your session” initial option seems like we should be able to meet up and travel together, but it never happened.
My Network settings in Creative Mode “Play with others” startup:
Any thoughts on how to make this work without starting in the Multiplayer game mode?
