Re: [Survival] Lightning (UNIX geeks) [0.4.14-dev]

Just an update, I've completely reset the map and removed most of the useless mods that were making the game feel overpowered.

Re: [Survival] Lightning (UNIX geeks) [0.4.14-dev]

Just a quick update, I've removed xdecor and put in homedecor, and I've added some less known mods, including kblocks, dicormod and fireworks2. The bones mod has also been modified to notify you of your bones' coordinates upon death. Loads more has been changed, such as minor alterations to the spaw...

Re: [Proposition] Trusting players

I think that an "experience" system would benefit servers greatly. This system would upgrade the ranks of ordinary users so they are capable of more. Perhaps instead of the ability to place certain block, an upgrade could permit a user to build in a certain "elite" area. Think ab...

Re: [Proposition] Trusting players

If humans run the validation system, then isn't what you're proposing a simple server without interact by default where moderators grant interact? Such a system would be highly effective, but it'd require moderators, trusted players, and let's not even get into how we're going to elect those :P Anot...

Re: [Proposition] Trusting players

Hi again aix, :) ... this time in-forum rather than in-game ( jj_ ) [...] jj_ Hi! Just before you made this post (I think), I implemented various safeguards into the server I run to further the protection against griefers. You correctly pointed out the ways players without interact can still hassle...

Re: [Proposition] Trusting players

A great way to catch out a griefer would be to grant them interact, and teleport them to a simulated village, with real-looking buildings, owned chests, some expensive materials, and no protection. If they dig a set number of blocks, their interact can be revoked, however good players will pass thro...

Re: [Proposition] Trusting players

I guess using a third party to authenticate players would be a good idea, but then you'd have to register on it before being allowed into the server, which could potentially deter actual users. Here's a thought: let players into the server, and make them follow a maze of sorts, with the promise of g...

Re: [Proposition] Trusting players

As for the others, I guess they'd work, but automated interact-granting mods don't prevent griefers with an intention to cause havoc (if the server doesn't have a protection mod). I don't think there is such as thing as fool's proof way to prevent griefing. short of having congress passing down gri...

Re: [Proposition] Trusting players

My keyword mod works even without shout privs. also if you want you could also use cheapie's newplayer mod which doesn't use chat but rather a formspec. it's also harder for newbe's to figure out. Cheapie's new player mod The whitelist mod only players on the list can join. My keyword interact mod ...

That doesn't stop users joining and messaging everyone.
Also, if I remove shout by default, players can't ask for interact.

Re: [Survival] Lightning (UNIX geeks) [0.4.14-dev+MinePass]

*bump*
I scrapped the whole "public" server idea. Now we're strictly a private server, where all new players must be vetted before being allowed in, thanks to the MinePass mod.

[Proposition] Trusting players

It was not so long ago that Minetest server owners had no viable options on the "node protection" front, and servers were badly griefed by pre-pubescent teens trying to gain materials, or, perhaps even worse, intentionally trying to cause damage. This is still the case today, but unlike th...

Re:

very nice! But what is the leaf block for? I will love to see more! Consider this contraption: https://sr.ht/vzY1.png The only way to get into the house would be using the tree ladder and leaves. The leaves are also climbable, since the ladder has to stop just before the leaves start, otherwise it ...

Re: basic_machines

Add this around line 34 in protect.lua, otherwise typing anything in the terminal mode crashes everything:
Code: Select all

The important stuff Address: tau.aix.ovh Port: 30000 Website: soon (maybe) The Lightning server was started to encourage a more creative attitude for survival mode. The mod selection has been hand-picked (I went through the whole of the 'Mod Releases' section in the forum) and in some cases, mods h...
