He used your saves, and you guys are AWESOME! Thanks to the saves you all provided, the server is pretty intact.

What EDad meant was...properties near spawn that belong to banned players have been cleared, so some land around spawn will be available. The land is currently protected by IOKA and can be distributed. We didn't want to leave it unprotected - some players could snatch up all the land and monopolize the area, or some players could decimate the landscapes and make big holes, etc.

I think it should be about ready. I've done all I can do. Not sure what Kibbie has in mind for cleanups/touchups.
But it is darn close to finished. :)

Fake Fire broke and would crash the server. I'm assuming it was due to the upgrade to Minetest 0.4.17.1 as it worked fine before. It's fixed now. We'll just have to see what else is broken that we haven't discovered yet.

Im just hoping my area was saved. Also how do you even make local save files of a world?

edit your minetest.conf and add the line
Code: Select all
enable_local_map_saving = true

then log in, and run around the areas you wish to save.

I believe it saves into the /minetest/worlds dir, with a subdir of the server name.

It'll likely slow your game down... so most people just enable it to save a current build.
Later, you can turn that option off, by setting it to false, or deleting that line of text.

It does. When I ran Minetest off my hard drive it was essentially impossible to play due to major lag spikes, turns out mapsave is pretty heavy on the random writes (which harddrives are trash at...) now I run my main client on a ram disk (don't ask) and don't have that issue. If you have an SSD you also shouldn't experience much of a performance hit.

SSDs are great for that. Starting MT (the start as such) and capturing a map where about the only situations where my old SSD was noticably faster than a hard drive.

Hi! I have not connected to this server for a long time, but now I have read of the recent problems, and of the extraordinary work from Edad to keep the server back. I have a question: my house was in an area very far from spawn, and I didn't know that we could send autosaves: I think that no one walked into that area for a long time, are there possibilities that I lost all?

Yeah. Quite a few players will lose their builds. Just have to cross your fingers and hope for the best...

HOMETOWN is up and running! Finally.
Not the same... but it's running :)

All thanks goes to the awesome local mapsaves you guys submitted. Without them... we would of had to start from scratch.

Pretty dang similar though.
Massive thanks to you ExeterDad, and to everyone with the local mapsaves. Without y'all, the server would certainly be here, but not as much as it is now :D

There are a few kinks to iron out, yes, but we shall survive :P

And boy is that forum going to be fun to remake. /s.

But hey.
That's just a theory.
HOMETOWN is back!

Hometown has survived the great mapocalypse of 2018. I think EDad should probably go sleep now.

I just visited the server and it's in surprising good shape. My base was there, maybe a few weeks work was lost. Many thanks to Bob8881 for providing the mapsave that included that place. Some glitches here and there but we'll get over it. Thank you EDad for bringing it back online!

Glad to see the server back and chugging along! Only thing is that my stuff looks like it did back in late 2017/early 2018. :P (And yes, I've been having the local map saving thing going on)

This is the excerpt of the texts displayed on the signs at spawn, and I've also translated it so that more people understand what has happened.

To our beloved staff and players: Thank you for your patience while HOMETOWN was down. Due to a fluke accident, our database was dropped (deleted) and everything was lost. ExeterDad and others have spent the last few weeks restoring the map.

Most of the server has been restored - but unfortunately some builds were lost, and for that we are deeply sorry. If your build was not visited by a player with local map save enabled, your build will not be present on the server. Some builds may be damaged or incomplete.

Thanks to the contributions of nine regular players who provided ExeterDad with map saves, we were able to restore a large portion of HOMETOWN. Without these contributions, HOMETOWN would be a blank map!

We owe a debt of gratitude to Baggins, Bob8881, ChimneySwift, jSnake, Muhdnurhidayat, Techy5, Shacharr, Twoelk, and User2. These players are the real HOMETOWN heroes! Thank you all!

Kudos to ExeterDad and everyone else for getting things up and running again, no small task I'm sure. It seems I have the perfect combination of lost and saved data. My main build, which was over 250 blocks up in the sky is gone, fell to my death immediately after spawning, respawned into a house that's no longer there and fell again. And the spot where I first started gathering resources for that build appears to have been a part of some of the recovered save data. So everything I had stored there before I moved to my new build is gone. Sorry not trying to complain or sound ungrateful, just venting I guess. I'll start over eventually and now I know about saving locally so at least I can be more prepared. This has also inspired me to try my hand at setting up my own server.
