Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

If necessary, visiting could be limited to boxes the visiting player has already solved. Not really sure what that would achieve. This server has always had quite an open policy towards helping other players to solve boxes, and if someone is giving someone else step-by-step instructions to solve a ...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

Feature request: Add a "spectator" mode. This would allow one player to invite another player to watch them solving a box. Then the spectator player would be teleported inside the same box (same instance of the box) as the active player, but wouldn't be able to interact with the box in any...

Re: [Server] HOMETOWN

I'm currently working on a server that is quite heavily inspired by this one but it will probably be around six months before it's ready to launch. Stay tuned though.

Re: Daily Worlds Backups Script

Agreed. The inconvenience of shutting down the server far outweighs the potential consequences of a bad backup procedure. Maybe on most servers this would be a better priority. But not for my server. On ITB, the worst thing that can happen is that someone builds for 4 hours and loses their box. I'd...

Re: Daily Worlds Backups Script

I think the opposite of you :-). Having 40 backups which might all be inconsistent is imho worse than having one backup which is guaranteed to be good. Agreed. The inconvenience of shutting down the server far outweighs the potential consequences of a bad backup procedure. This is the kind of corru...

Re: Daily Worlds Backups Script

But in the past I had problems to extract archives from my server on my Desktop PC, when using gzip or bzip2. The problem did not occur as long as the file 'map.sqlite' was smaller than 2GB.

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

If what you say is true about noobs not being able to become pros then how is anyone a pro? (Most of) the pros are from before there were so many existing pros to prevent the new would-be pros from becoming pros. If you can't kill without being able to use the pro side then how does anyone kill? Th...

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

Have you ever seen me ban a troublemaker on HT? Those are the types of players that farm noobs. They don't care. They just want a better K/D I've joined matches where there was only one pro online (usually a noob farmer) I think it's you're missing my point. Sorry. Not sure what you're trying to sa...

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

That's only one strategy. The strategy that I like to use is "run in and grab the flag hopefully without being noticed, kill off anyone who does notice". Works even better if you have a backup person to cover your back. You will probably die in this situation and literally bring good swor...

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

Wrong. You can't (regularly, reliably) earn a good weapon with a bad weapon (unless the players on other team are mostly stupid). What you can do, and what I can do, is earn a good weapon with another good weapon. So with a steel sword I can kill someone else who has a steel sword. Then I can bring...

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

If you have a K/D of 1 or more that might also mean you harvest noobs in the dead hours. It could, yes. But "harvesting noobs" has multiple flaws. Firstly, that is not at all the objective of the game and if this was my server aimlessly killing noobs to improve one's score would be a puni...

CTF in MT is about "beat your enemy until he loses all his weapons. Then grab the flag." That's only one strategy. The strategy that I like to use is "run in and grab the flag hopefully without being noticed, kill off anyone who does notice". Works even better if you have a back...

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

Most of these players with newly-granted access to the pro-chest still don't contribute to the team in any way at all, and end up wasting all weapons to the enemy by jumping into battle without any strategy whatsoever. No one ever seems to have any strategy on this server (at least not that I've se...

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

Now that players start out with good weapons, the Ice Age map has been very popular. Maybe doing that with more maps (like 2H2L) would be better. Well that's not surprising really, it eliminates the weapons imbalance that I keep talking about. Another way to mostly eliminate the weapon imbalance wo...

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

Not reverting the healing progress would mean that players would lose the item without reaping its full benefits. If the healing process keeps getting interrupted immediately after starting, multiple times, players would keep losing items without much gain in health. This would be extremely unfair,...

Re: [Server] Capture the Flag Server (Guns!) - Multiple maps

If a player engages in PvP (hits an enemy, or gets hit by an enemy) while healing, the healing is considered to be interrupted, the player will get the used medkit back, and their original health will be restored. I think the "original health will be restored" part would be overly complic...
