Re: ANNOUNCE: "THE VALLEYS" Server

By request I've uploaded more recent ones. This is one dated 4/4/2018 Hosting is via my Discord server (too NSFW to discuss or link to here, but it's on my Twitter page), which keeps the full 4K resolution (unlike imgur which scales it down a bit) https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/4355380379514...

Re: [Mod] Bees and beekeeper [2.0] [bees]

As my servers grew the bees mod made them unusably slow with excessive ABM errors. I recently upgraded the bees mod on my server to vitalie's 3.0-dev, which does not have this problem. Stuff is transitioning over as you can't get bees from pre-existing beehives but you can get the honey and chop the...

If the mod is GPLv3 or Creative Commons with -NC you might. Mods might have to be digitally signed by Valve's key

Re: A case for publishing the game on Steam

DRM or not, forget it. we obviously won't be using it So we definitely are doing this? Has every mod designer signed off on it? If you sign the game and its mods over to Steam, there will be fallout by people like me who don't want to give Steam backdoor access to possibly everything on their VPS (...

Re: A case for publishing the game on Steam

Steam takes everything, including compiling from source, hacking existing mods to fit your needs, running a server and handling kicks and bans (and what mod to use for doing so, if you're allowed to use anything not associated with Steam accounts and VAC to begin with) yourself, setting it up on you...

Re: Stop Banning People | The Anti-Ban Movement #AntiBanMove

Just an off-topic note that if you type #AntiBanMovement into Twitter you get two Tweets, one on golf and one on abortion.

With #ProBanMovement you get nothing at all.

IIRC the first major update to Windows 10 suddenly disabled a bunch of CPU benchmarking and overclocking tools.

Re: Stop Banning People | The Anti-Ban Movement #AntiBanMove

I have been a bit extreme with bans and rollbacks in the past but these days I give regular players who don't usually cause damage a yelling at. But new players on the servers who do pit griefing, water griefing, and lava griefing are automatic bans. It's just way too much work to fix sometimes, esp...

Re: Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

Turns out that in addition to the blackholing I was just long overdue for a /clearobjects on that server (last time I did was over 6 months ago). It had gotten so bad that I was getting weird packet errors when trying to connect today. I hate doing a /clearobjects because everyone loses all their ta...

I'm running it on a VPS, provider is Linode. I have hundreds of thousands of IPs blackholed though.

Re: Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

The most efficient way on Linux is to use `ipset` as it can be used to define network ranges, and then block them using `iptables` if they match the `ipset`. There are many guides that cover the topic, here's one that I think does a good job: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ipset How is that d...

Re: Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

"ip route add blackhole" on large ranges seems to introduce a bit of lag and slowness (probably about 2-10 at most) but not to the extent of being unplayable (the 20-40 I was getting with iptables). Thank you!

Re: Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

Since you are talking about iptables and supposedly have linux: ip route add blackhole 192.168.178.5/29 is the way to go there... 192.168.178.5 is the IP, /29 is the bitmask to use for the range. https://www.aelius.com/njh/subnet_sheet.html Will that avoid the lag issues I just described when doing...

I don't know how to create mods, and I don't know what on_joinplayer is. Does anything exist, even something that has nothing to do with Minetest? (Preferably something that has nothing to do with Minetest.)

Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

Hi, I need a way to block IP ranges, to block griefers who have several IDs consisting of different IPs in the same two ranges, as well as people who have made threats to hack my server. The only way I know of that would do this would be iptables, but inspecting every single packet against hundreds ...

When they changed Protector Redo from steel bar to gold bar I went along with it, since it's too easy for people to just dump them everywhere and never finish things.

Thinking of resurrecting my old PvP server - questions

Hi, I don't know if anyone remembers my short-lived PvP server, The Shootout. Basically it was intended as a server where one would start in a tiny spawn castle (similar to the spawn building in The Valleys, but smaller and with no roof), and would leave into a flat map, building defenses with cobbl...
