The only way to gain access to a private room is via link - it would be helpful to have the ability to set a password if you choose to have a room privation the match settings
I agree with this wholeheartedly. I play with a friend regularly and have to send him a link by email because often if you turn the game from private to public so they can join, someone else jumps in. Sending the link by email is cumbersome and slow. By using a known pass code, this is made very convenient. Just set the room to private and enter the pass code in the pass code box. Anyone trying to enter your private game can get in only if they know the pass code, which of course, friends have.
Upvote! Definitely need passwords to stop random people joining.
This was implemented by adding the custom room link feature. Just type https://colonist.io/#roomname and it will create a private room
