    Multiple accounts and Steam

    Apologies if this query has already been posted. I currently have 2 alpha accounts for PG, and have purchased it on Steam for one of my accounts. Now, if I want to continue accessing the second account I understand I will have to make another purchase of the game on Steam. The question is, will the second account have to be tied to a second Steam account? I not sure, but I think only one alpha account can be tied to a particular Steam account? And how does launching multiple instances of the game work on Steam?

    That's a good question. Usually it's one account, one Steam. At least you can have multiple characters per account...

    Citan talked about this in the "Dev Blog: How Will the Upcoming Steam Integration Work?" post.

    So personally I would hold off on buying extra copies of the game for mules. We're busy thinking about ways that the VIP package can make muling easier (for instance, by giving your account more character slots and a bigger shared-account-storage box). I think the VIP plan will be the easiest way to be a pack-rat in the future.

    While reading the OP's question I realize that the OP is in no way implying that he wants to use it for multiboxing (as in doing combat while operating 2+ accounts), or Botting (operating a toon automatic using special extra software),
    but somehow I feel the need to urge people not to assume those acitivies will be allowed.

    The only exceptional Use (by the devs) for operating 2 accounts was for muling (easily transfer and store item on multiple accounts).

    I believe in games like Asherons Call the practices of multiboxing an botting were more widespread. But please don't do it in PG :-)

    Yes, I currently run multiple accounts for muling purposes. I also happen to have a main character on two of these accounts. I think a workaround to have multiple accounts running is to install Steam and PG onto a second device i.e. laptop, create a second Steam account and purchase a second PG account. I can then have PG running on both desktop and laptop simultaneously. The thing is, with alpha I can launch my multiple PG accounts all at once on the desktop (I have multiple monitors) and easily move items between mains and mules. I'm guessing that trying to launch more than one Steam account and PG account on the desktop will be problematic in beta.

    It was possible to multibox some steam MMOs like https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil.../?id=254442001

    Cant check that for PG, cuz not having it on steam.

    Or maybe installing steam on virtual machine would work as a last resort.

    If you are on Linux, you can also create a Linux user account for each Steam account, then su to the account in a terminal window, export your DISPLAY to your current desktop, and run steam from there. That allows you to run as many Steam instances simultaneously as you like (or your machine's memory can handle), each with their own saved username and password.

    I don't know enough about Mac OS to know if the same trick would work there.

    On Windows, a virtual machine is probably the best you can do...

    This is just for FYI as I just confirmed this with srand:

    Having two characters logged in at the same time is acceptable only as long as neither character is benefiting. (So ... muling.) Otherwise it is indeed against the rules.

    Yes, you can install different users on different user accounts on Mac OS. You can do that on windows, as well.

    I just don't think you can fast-switch between them; you'd still have to exit the game as it wouldn't run in the background. Some times survive fast0switching users, but most things don't.
