[Server] Mobs World (DuCake's Vivarium)

by taikedz » Post

This server is no more. I no longer have the time or inclination to maintain it. It was my first server, and a lot of bad decisions were made when first putting it together. I want to start from scratch, something tighter knit, and not completely cobbled together,

Thanks to all who played and gave great feedback and made fantastic builds -- and to NathanS21 who created the best Vivarium ever ;-)

+++++++++

MOBS WORLD - a server with tons of mobs! No matter whether they are animals, monsters or NPCs, you will be able to capture them and display them in an enclosure that you and your team will build!
On port 30001 there is an alternative server : the Not So Simple Server. It hosts just NSSM and a few basic essentials, as well as the ability to tame monsters, just like in the main Mobs World.

Most monsters and animals you will be able to handle on your own; but the hardest will be designed to be nearly impossible to defeat or capture without some additional help...!

To that effect, you are encouraged to tame all sorts of animals, NPCs and even mosnters to do battle for you, or to team up with other players. Carry ANY mob's spawn eggs and deploy them using the Mob Tamer when you need them.

All mobs can be captured with the magic lasso (might require a few tries!)

But if you just want to come build and farm - that's entirely up to you too!

NOTE :: Mobs need to be spawned as NPCs using the Mob Tamer tool to prevent them from despawning.

Welcome to Mobs World. Show us the Best Zoo!
+ Spoiler
Any more you think should be added? :D

[EDIT] from an old iteration of the server. But a steel shield will still probably be enough defence :-)

All I have is a steel shield..... clearly even that is overkill, as I am being attacked by some strong mobs and not taking an ounce of damage....

I'm going to be backing up this world soon and creating a new one. Not many people have been on it, so I don't think I'll be destroying any hard work :-p

I've reloaded this server.

The new goals have become to tame ALL the things. Well nearly. Though taming ogres could be interesting.

As I come across different animal and monster mods, I may add them and tweak them such that they become tameable, and will do battle for you. Or just sit and be cute.

That's TWO sandworms :-p

I've just finished my preliminary edits to NSSM so I can have them in a .... controlled environment. Eggs-only for now. Might start selling them.

I have activated some weaker monsters now as an apetizer...

Just need to make them all capturable now.... it will involve a team effort to capture some though. No one player should be able to face off against the stronger ones (once theyre active) and hope to survive >:)

So I did some runs fighting the bosses... they're to weak for a multiplayer server... I've doubled their HP and halved their armor indices :-P

I've also put emphasis on taming animals for use as battle companions.

Of which... tamed slimes! Craft your own slime companions to help defend you!

So. A word of advice.

If you start a game, and add NSSM (Not So Simple Mods) after the fact, change some spawning parameters!

Notably, make sure Stoneaters don't spawn anywhere above -200!

Underneath the village that had started sprouting, I found these caverns - all stone had been replaced by air by the Stoneaters who were labouring under our feet, leaving all other materials (ores!) exposed.

This is a by-effect of all nodes within a radius of players being generated and rendered - even if they are not in visible range. Spawning also happens, and behavioural animation too obviously.

Image

Of course, if you have NSSM from the get go, there's less of a likelihood of villages even starting up, so less likely that Stoneaters will have so much permanence and time to do this much hollowing out!

Some extra slimes.

Don't attack the Sentinels, they are placed around the world for your protection.

Companion slimes, you can make (check crafting guide in inventory). Take a load of them into battle!

My first display monster :-)

I have to improve the technique by which to prevent mobs from de-spawning. Currently you have to hit a mob (any) to mark it against de-spawning, but I don't feel that's an appropriate way to tell people to treat monsters in their custody....!

It might mean having to add code snippets to EVERY on_rightclick ... :-/

To make things easier in the deep caves, I have added a falling light

https://github.com/taikedz/falling_light

Use sand and torches to craft these. When you encounter a deep drop, place one of these nodes against an adjacent wall - a luminous block of sand will drop to the bottom and light up the space.

This server now has a daily reboot at 06:00 UTC.

Which should allow routine changes to be implemented.

And will generate a fresh map over (-3000,3000 : 3000,-3000)

(not embedding because it is preeeety big [3.3MB - which is more than reasonable for an embed!] and will only get bigger over time)

I have finally updated the server to 0.4.14

You will now see whether you are damaging those pesky mobs... or whether you fend in vain :D

THIS IS A PUBLIC SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT

I have moved this to a more powerful server. Now running on 2GB RAM and 2 CPUs.

I have also added ethereal to gain more variety in biomes.

Alas this also means I had to change the map gen in an already heavily generated world.... with th obvious consequences. Ah well. Make art with the cliff faces, people :-)
