Re: [Server] Must Test

I've added a restart script to the server. It will now restart at 12:00 AM every night without preamble. The reason this wasn't implemented before is because I was a) lazy, and b) there wasn't a game requirement for it. Now there is: snowfall and snowmelt. Must Test has 2 basic seasons from this poi...

Re: [Server] Must Test

@parasite You make a valid point about the exploration/travel mechanic and the slow-walk through snow being contrary to it. I am going to have to think more carefully about this than I did the first time. Already I have an idea for a solution, besides adding sleds. Will need to run tests to know if ...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Clearly I need to pay attention to the forum more frequently. Also, I really like sorcerykid's screen pics! I'm sorry to hear you've been having problems, @parasite. :( But your post has convinced me I need to add a sled mod. I thought of adding one a while back but it didn't seem necessary so I put...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Hello all, Starting at 6 PM CST on Sept 30, this server will go off-line for 24 hours until 6 PM CST on Oct 1. I will not be available to fix bugs/talk to players. Family holiday! Also, some router/hardware maintenance will take place in the interim. As usual, all your stuff is safe and secure. Edit...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Hello all! Version "2" of Technic is here, and replaces version "1" (which was itself a re-implementation of Original Technic's power-networks). Among other things, most of Technic's machines have been introduced, with only a few (like the CNC machine) still in waiting. The power...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Greetings again! More updates have been made; some are bugfixes, some were long in the planning, and some I thought of adding only recently. Here are the most important. 1) The stack limit has been changed from 99 to 64. I am fully aware this will be unpopular. I always wanted a smaller stack limit ...

Re: [Server] Must Test

I am keeping close tabs on the server's performance. But generally it's my network provider that's the bottleneck, not the server.

Re: [Server] Must Test

As promised, particle effects are here. I like the lava particles the best, they make it seem more alive (as if it didn't look dangerous enough already). Particles for fire and torches are still in the plan. The most noticeable change is tree trunks. All trunk nodes have been converted to nodeboxes,...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Hi angelo! Thanks for your interest, but this server's spawn is already finished (its got 5 spawns, actually). I do have a plan to make 1 or more of them into an open sandbox, a bit like just test's unprotected spawn from days of yore. Updates: 1) Added HUD clock (code from 'aftermath', by maikerumi...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Nope. Not likely. :) Server updates: 1) Fixed item-duplication exploit in anvils, itemframes, & pedestals. 2) Hoed soil nodes converted to nodeboxes for added detail. I personally think they look MUCH better. 3) Leaves drop sticks in addition to previous normal drops that leaves give. Seemed rea...

Re: [Server] Must Test

The server is back online! Our trip south went as planned. Among other things, we saw the solar eclipse, and we experienced totality for approximately 2 minutes (I had entirely forgotten to time it!). To commemorate our trip back, however, I want a shirt that says "I survived the 2017 eclipse t...

Hello all! I have an announcement regarding the server. Starting sometime between 5 and 6 PM August 14, 2017 CST, this server will be temporarily off-line for about a week. It will return to operational status sometime near the end of August 22. My family is on vacation during this time, so obviousl...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Hi AndDT! Did you try putting in multiple sand & coal dust? Some recipes need several of an item, but the craft guide makes you think you only need 1. This is a known deficiency in the craft guide which I haven't gotten around to fixing (not even sure if it is possible to fix, yet). The ratio is...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Hi LaserJet, that happens because the pick you're using digs very fast, so when you dig the obsidian you also end up digging the shield blocks underneath. I've replaced them with gravel, so that sort of accident shouldn't happen again. :) I also found and fixed a griefer-friendly bug in the lavacool...

Re: [Server] Must Test

Hi LaserJet!

I am not sure what the problems were caused by**, but I'm glad you appear to have fixed them.

**The Minetest devs are planning to break compatibility in the network protocol soon, which WILL cause problems. I do not think this was the issue, though.

Re: [Server] Must Test

Hi LaserJet, thanks for the report! It is a spurious error and will probably work next time you try.

In other news, apples, cones, & firetree fruit will regrow after being picked. Very slowly. And only if they grew from a tree.

Re: [Server] Must Test

Hello all.

The server is experiencing some problems*, but unfortunately I do not have the ability to correct them ASAP. So the server will be offline for a few hours, until I get uninterrupted time to resolve the problem.

* It crashes whenever someone joins. Without an error message. Rude!

The server has a new domain name now. No more messing around with dynamic IPs! :-)

For some reason my browser prevents testing the link. If you get same problem, type it manually instead of clicking.
