    Okay so I looked around the RoR forums, and google, and Steam, and had no luck so... I know everything says it is 4p maximum but sometimes after we win a game and disconnect for a brief instant I see like... 7 player icons, each with a unique color. So is that an intended feature? Or some sort of hotseat thing? Or what?
    Thanks for your time.

        The method the devs used for the online multiplayer will allow any number of players, the limit of four is just a soft limit as meow247 pointed out. But, the game's balance system is not set up to handle more than four players, so the difficulty tends to spike and fluctuate when you go above 4. Also, adding more players can put a lot of strain on the host's computer.

          Ah, that makes a lot of sense! Thank you very much for your replies. It could be interesting to try it anyway for kicks.

              Thread necros are only accepted if the thread is still relevant and the necro itself is on-topic. The query raised in this thread was answered five years ago, and your post is referring to a completely different game. If you want to discuss Stardew Valley, please do so in the Stardew Valley subforum. I also ask that you be more mindful of posing in older threads.

              In the meantime, I'll be closing this thread, since OP has been inactive for a while and has already had their question answered.
