Hello!

As part of a discussion about the number of players currently online, I did think of a way to estimate that number. Steam does show its data for all players currently using Steam to run Ryzom, and if we knew the proportion of Steam:Static clients we could use that to estimate the total number of players online.

Steam only counts the stuff you downloaded from them, right? I have added the standalone client to my list of game manually, and labeled it Ryzom, but I have this feeling it won't count.

Pity we can't just /who universe like we can some other channels.

Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.

Well, even in that case, I dont want to count a hundred or so player names :P

But a command for players connected should be feasable, although pretty useless aside from curiosity's sake.

hmmm after 1 day, it seems to be holding true to 1 to 4 ratio, interesting.

Perhaps keep in mind that players from steam have their own forums not only ryzom's one. It could modify the ratio

Only way I can see to do this now is have a player in every region and all do the /who at the same time.

Good point. And it's a bit more obfuscated since not all players go to the game forums anyways.
