[0.4.14dev] Cryt-Survival

by Cryterion » Sat May 16, 2015 10:04

Cryterion's Survival Server

mt.thatgraemeguy.co.za : 30000

Admins : Cryterion, thatgraemeguy

Game Info:-

The game/world is off the original dreambuilder game, which was modified a bit and a few mods added. Currently it's a world on it's own path now, as a game on it's own development cycle. Hope you enjoy the ride!

Rules:
The usual rules apply, no griefing, stealing etc, pvp on agreement between both parties only.

The server shutdowns briefly at Midnight UTC+2 for backups.

Daily Updated Map of the world.
+ Spoiler


Default Privs : shout,fast (No others will be given except interact!)
Please register an account here on forums and request interact!, otherwise if an admin is online then request in IRC/ingame.

Protection :
You can protect your builds with ShadowNinja's areas mod. For help, just ask.

I'm happy to look at/test additional mods anyone feels should be in the game, keeping in mind that they will be checked and any node damage options either disabled or minimized to prevent griefing. Suggestions are welcome for changes or additional options.

If it stays pure survival I might set up shop. So many of the "survival" servers have admins that use creative or give creative to a select group, and then you end up with infrastructure generated by mass application of creative and/or worldedit, instead of built by hand.

The map extends 32000+ in all directions. Try keep the spawn area itself clear for community buildings

Ai nee sorry bud. Me and Barry really wanted to support you and play on your server but the lag is simply unplayable.

You should consider rather hosting your server at an ISP. Home line simply is too slow for it.
You could speak to ThatGreameGuy if you want to consider moving it to an ISP. He will be able to point you in
right direction and is very good with these things.

With the lag as is I can't play. Is just too frustrating

Server has been moved to a VS for better performance, Note server address change to connect, original game and map are running!

Thanks to graeme for the help there, we all appreciate it :)

I've removed the node damage code from mobs, so that fireball might kill you, but won't damage anything else.
Change will occur at next daily server restart. Along with the following changes.
Armour won't drop on death.
Titanium swords now work on mods, little bit better than a diamond one.
and recipes now exist for digilines light sensor and rtc.
I'll give your new travelnet box when I see online again.

Can you maybe look into the recipe for crafting iron boots ?

When placed as unified inventory shows it must be placed the result is steel bars and not iron boots.
I think those two have the same recipe.

Thanx for disabling that node damage.

What is the daily server restart/backup times btw ?

Daily backup isn't scheduled yet. I wrote a rudimentary script for it, was thinking perhaps midnight (UTC+2) for a start and we can monitor when the server is busy and adjust if needed.

Seems taste varies. I like it a lot if servers are survival in general, but switch those players who are apparently capable and willing to build a lot of good structures to a more creative mode. That way, all can play on the same server. It's just necessary for those with extended privs to take care not to corrupt the market for those that still play survival.
A list of my mods can be found here.

Going back on that, I remember a post in the Digilines mod, and that being, building something in survival mode gives a sense of accomplishment when it's down, an example is, on VE-Survival, a full scale sized model of the Roman colloseum in currently in construction by me, out of sandstone, so a factory had to be built to manufacture it, hense my post in the games forum that I had a major need for cobblestone.
We like survival here!!! ;)

I agree with the accomplishment factor.
I played a month in pure survival , then I administered a lan server for 10 months where I was admin and regularly used giveme and mapedit. I build huge networks and buildings on that server of mine.

Then only 2 weeks or so ago I lost my server due to hardware and other factors and came to public server where I now play pure survival for the first time in over a year. And for me , just the little bit that I built on this server the last week feels much more of an accomplishment for me that all that huge networks I had on my server all put together.
It feels nice when you finished something and had to work for it.
