A stress test may be a good idea - on a copy of the map so that all can be restored after the test. Players, even moderators may do things wrongly. Giving them a second chance sounds fine. But...fire really needs to be disabled. It doesn't add to the game. It's just griefing and creating lag.
OK, I get the message, nobody likes fire.
For the record this was a new world (The Land of Dreaming) that I was running specifically for testing purposes.
We are now back in Bramble Haven - the original world.
The spread of fire will be disabled on next reboot.

The Grail Test server should be available on grailtest.free-server.co.uk:30000 most of the time now. I will post here if it is likely to be down for any length of time.

I have fixed the skin previews. There are only 3 pages of skins and they are all displayed. I don't know why UI reports 4.

That's good! Now the world will be safe again, and wooden constructions can be built.
A list of my mods can be found here.

Okay, thank you. I can hardly wait to see what's being done, despite certain tensions going on. Thanks!

I'm amazed that I haven't been on here in so long! My latest minetest accomplishment was mining by hand (well, as close as you can get in a computer game) a circle 30 blocks in diameter. It took forever but it's pretty cool.

The server is generally very calm. I do encourage role play, so incidents like this just add to the drama of the storyline.

The code is a bit unstable at the moment due to fluctuations in the upgrade path. Sorry. Something to do with mobs is intermittently crashing the server, if anyone has experienced a crash related to mobs could they tell me what happened. The stack trace is less than informative. I need to tame the mobs a bit.

Di-did you say... roleplay? That's awesome! I love roleplaying!

Also, I've been wondering for a while now if the map is in the worlds forum. I'd be interested in trying it out on my own. I'm still kinda shy about servers. I've never join one, and I'm rather new to the minetest community, so please forgive me for that. I've used the game several times, I really like it. Thanks for putting time into this project!

That's an idea. No it isn't, but I could look at uploading it, particularly as the server is offline at the moment and the changes I'm making in the codebase may require starting a new world for the server.

Nice. Thanks. It looks completely awesome, and like I said I'm rather shy... :) Thank you again.

Thanks for the positive feedback geoper2 and swordpaint12! You've inspired me to make an interim release viewtopic.php?f=50&t=10941&start=25#p197265 while I rebuild the codebase.

Grail Test is back online for a bit at grailtest.gigaworld.org:30001

It's a completely new world and could do with some willing testers.
See you soon!

PS: For reasons I don't understand, Grail Test frequently doesn't show up in the server list, please use the details above to connect.

The server will be offline for a short while.

I am moving ... again! and will only have wifi until I sort out a decent connection.
Also it is hard to develop whilst running a server at the same time.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Grail Test server is back online with a reliable connection and dedicated server!
While it has been down, I have basically rebuilt the game from scratch, so the whole thing is much more consistent, coherent and playable, improved the play guide and added some video tutorials.

Drop by and have a look around. Interact is disabled by default, so if you want to build, you have to message me somehow, either on here, in which case tell me your player name, or use the in-game /mail chatcommand.

Re: Grail Test Server

It appears the new server has issues (don't we all). Players may have noticed rather frequent time-space glitches, which can prove disconcerting, if not downright disheartening. As the settlement has begun to attract some good builders and some of the survivors from Bramble Haven have found us, I want to ensure the quality of everyone's in-game life.

So, it will be down for a few hours, while I reconfigure things.
And I may clean up the world a bit before I re-open the dimensional portal.

Probably just enough time to watch a few episodes of grailcast - which is a series of grailest tutorials I made while I was offline. I hope you find them amusing, if not useful.

The dimensional portal is open again and I'm quietly confident that we won't be seeing any more major crashes. In fact, the server seems to be running smoother than ever now. So I can declare it safe to dig, explore and build again.

Re: Grail Test Server

On the subject of asking for interact:

It's probably best to either post something in this forum, or use the in-game /mail command to ask for permission to dig and build. Other channels, such as PMing me on here or just asking on chat may get overlooked. It is just a little formality, which lets me know that you're a reasonably intelligent human being - I have only ever refused when the request has been accompanied with threats. I know it's only a game, but you'd be surprised.

This bit is important: you need to log into the game first and, if you post here, tell me your username.

I'm against adding money to the game at present, sorry.
When the game is more finished I may consider a simpler trading system.

I don't understand the previous question.
