Re: [Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

1) If you mean creation of a image of the map of the server, then yes, I currently don't have the right permissions to be able to do that. It would require either moving the server's map to postgres, or keeping the server down long enough to run the mapping software on the sqlite map file. 2) As far...

Re: [mod]ranged weapons[2018.08.22] [0.3] [rangedweapons]

This mod seems fatally flawed right now. I shot a gun at an unknown node, and it crashed the server. Now the server crashes immediately if that area is loaded. Some errors: 2020-04-26 02:41:43: ERROR[Main]: ServerError: AsyncErr: ServerThread::run Lua: Runtime error from mod 'rangedweapons' in callb...

Re: [Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

@saavedra29: Like most big minetest servers, ours is quite idiosyncratic. There are often other players who will help you out in game chat, though, and there's a "Newb School" at spawn that explains some particular mechanics and mods (though not this tool repair one). Asking in game chat will usuall...

Re: [Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

@saavedra29 That is intentional. The anvil only repairs basic metal tools, you need to use an Equipment Reformer from the terumet mod to repair more advanced items.

Re: [Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

Hey jomunoz,

Could you post those issues here: https://github.com/BlockySurvival/issue-tracker/issues?

I should really disable the issue tracker on the bls_mods repo.

Re: [Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

The mods were coded against the behaviour of a poorly documented, sometimes inconsistent API. One undocumented behaviour has been replaced with another. Assuming things will stay consistent is not a lazy programming practice, the general quality of the mods notwithstanding.

Re: [Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

I wish I could help out more, but due to poor health, I really can't. I feel like I'm just treading water keeping Blocky running stably (for some definition of "stable"). That's not your fault. But I feel like a bunch of servers are going to get bit by this issue when 5.2 is released.

Re: [Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

@sfan5 I'm honestly kind of annoyed that you guys think that changing the mod API with little warning in a way that breaks existing mods is the fault of the mod creators, but I'm not going to argue about this. We'll deal with auditing and patching the mods ourselves.

Re: [Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

@jomunoz/George2020A: that bug looks like a know issue, that the devs will not resolve:

https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/9428

Do you know which mods were having problems? It seems like we should fix them before we update the minetest engine again.

@Hulkhogan25 it looks like you've started building in an area that aleksbuilder plans to develop. There's no reason you have to move, but you may have a lot of neat buildings around you eventually :)

Re: Serious limitations of minetest.deserialize

This is only tangentially related, but the 64ki limit is built in to Lua itself, not minetest.serialize itself. Lua can only process scripts w/ a maximum of 64ki constants in them, and minetest.serialize (like most Lua serializers) encodes its data as a Lua script. The comment about a table w/ more ...

Re: question about some of these mods ?????

After talking to the player on our server, my understanding of the issue is this: They download some mods from the content tab in 5.0, create a world, and enable the mods in that world. Everything works at that point. However, after some time, they launch that world again, but for some reason the mo...
