Re: Can an LGPLv2.1 mod implement a GPLv3 API?

I am less confused now! Thanks.

EDIT: And yes, I was trying to ask if code that was previously LGPLv2.1 could/should become GPLv3 when calling functions defined in a GPLv3 work.

Welp, that's a bug.

Re: Question about writing server rules

Over thinking and over-stressing over it all is futile. You're covered by simply stating the rules..., the rest is in the hands of all the wonderful and fully attentive parents of the world... (good luck) What about the "hemp" in farming_redo, and other things buried somewhere in my pile ...

Re: Question about writing server rules

Currently, I only give out the IP to those who specifically ask, and my confirmation mechanism automatically kicks people after 25 seconds if they don't confirm, s...

Re: Question about writing server rules

But why this? Is there something particular in your server that make you enforce a 18+ years requirement? A server description with a 18+ requirement would be really fishy, I would imagine an "adult game" with graphically "adult content" (I think you know what I mean) and althou...

You can set private destinations, and sort portals by only the ones owned by you, which might be similar to what you're asking?

Humanity never ceases to disappoint me.

Sometimes, in cases of extreme lag, the glider will fail to open in time to save the player, so you could say this is already implemented.

Question about writing server rules

I'm designing the rules for my server, and I ran into an issue deciding whether to A: Age-restrict the server to users over the age of 18, and allow pretty much any content so long as it isn't breaking any laws. B: Allow anyone to join, but have strict rules regarding hateful or obscene content. Whi...

Re: [Mod] Mese Portals [meseportals]

Update
  • Added a hint in the item name for burying portals in the ground.
  • Nodes that make up the base of a portal are now protected.
  • Portals no longer use an annoyingly slow ABM to update their world-node.
