BBMine, you violated multiple rules, and were banned from the server as a result. It's not that complicated. Get over it.

Yes, I know, but that still doesn't explain being banned from jt2.intraversal.net. You didn't do a simple /xban Baggins, you actually locked me out of the whole ip.

You are not paying customer, so I am under no obligation to explain why or how I manage my own server. There are plenty of other sites you can visit online. End of discussion.

For that matter, NONE of the users are paying customers, so you should block them ALL out.

It makes ZERO since why you would ban someone from an entire IP when the "crime" they committed was on port 30002.

I plan to host MT servers with a website on the same machine. However, if someone griefs the servers, I won't ban him from the website, unless he's DDOSing it.

Important Security Notice:

Several players have lost items from shared chests recently due to a vulnerability in TenPlus1's protection mod. The exploit has been patched, and shared chests are now safe to use. An automated script will be used to restore the lost items from an archive (hopefully by Thursday afternoon). The downtime should be minimal. Sorry about the confusion!

I prefer to think that the park is abandoned and like hunting there in the dark without being watched by witnesses. Hope you'll be busy and it will stay abandoned for a long time ;)

I need trustful players for helping with my project Grand Park on JT2. Help i need is: cleaning areas from stone, farming dirt, mining, and taking care of Park. Anyone who help me will be part of players who "own" Grand Park. You can get rewards in items to, if you want :P

Regarding huge auth.txt rewrites, it seems there is a solution that is used by some server owners that helps more or less - viewtopic.php?f=9&t=18604 (SQLite Auth [sauth]). Auth in database is planned in engine too iirc.

Hi, everyone! I apologize for not being as active in game these past couple months. Since losing my regular job, it's been tough finding the motivation to play as frequently as I used to. However, I have still been working behind the scenes on a variety of backend improvements. I'll post a complete list of updates within the next couple days!

Perhaps the most noticeable change, however, is the Halloween decor. Last week, Castle Nemo was boarded up after several confirmed reports of hauntings. The courtyard, has become infested with flesh-eating zombies and the great hall is overrun by ghosts. It seems that we disturbed a long-forgotten burial ground for griefers directly below spawn, and their souls are at unrest.

Please beware of spawn at night -- ghouls and goblins are on the prowl!

In the spirit of the holiday (no pun intended), candy and costumes will also be added to the server on Halloween. That's right -- you will be able to pick from over 100+ skins, perfect for trick or treating around the neighborhood in disguise during the witching hour!

All Hallows Eve, of course, isn't the only seasonal perk. Leaves and shrubs are changing colors, chickens and turkeys are roaming the countryside, and pumpkins are at full blossom. There is a cool breeze in the air, and the days are becoming shorter. Autumn is upon us, so enjoy some apple cider and pumpkin bread courtesy of Nemo!

I hope that you will find better job.
That idea mob spawning at spawn sound good!
And adding halloween costumes (skins) is awesome, can't wait to try one :)

Hi all! Beginning today, all dormant accounts on the server (at least 6 months of continuous inactivity) will be automatically blocked from logging in. This is mostly a security measure to protect against intrusion attempts on older accounts.

If your account is suspended, simply PM me on this forum to request reactivation. Thanks for your attention!

One more week till Halloween, our fiendish friends!

Image

We've already unearthed at least four coffins at spawn. Their epitaphs are eerily appropriate:

  • "In memory of gold_digger, Minetest's most infamous hacker"
    "Dearly departed CleanerPro. You griefed till the very end"
    "Here lies Adolf_Hitler, first cheater to be banned from JT2"
    "RIP Oerrki. A kindred spirit that only wanted to be loved."
Be sure to pay your respects to these restless souls. They will always be remembered in our stone-cold hearts.

To add some flair to your spooky decor, players can now craft cobwebs and lanterns! Here are the recipes:

Image Image

Potted flowers are available too, so you can build your own graveyards, funeral homes, and even mausoleums.

Image

Simply place the flower of your choice between two bricks. And voila, instant potted flower to enhance any burial site!

As previously announced, a land-value tax is to be instituted on the JT2 server this November. In preparation for these changes, I have compiled a FAQ and included a map depicting the municipal tax district boundaries for reference.

What are the boundaries of the tax districts?
The Land-Value Tax District encompasses the entirety of spawntown, excluding the Historical District, whereas the Tax Exempt District is bounded by Holiday Drive, Brookfield Road, Valley Road, and Hill Street.

Are all players required to pay the tax?
Only property owners within the designated Land-Value Tax District shall be required to pay the land-value tax in accordance with the tax schedule.

Which properties are exempt from the tax?
Those properties within the Tax Exempt District and the Historical District, as well as properties more than 20 meters below grade and city-owned properties (publicworks, citymanager, and Nemo) shall not be subject to the land-value tax.

Are pre-existing land claims affected by this tax?
Yes, property owners within the Land-Value Tax District shall have a 14 day grace period in which to renew their land claims. Any land claims that are not renewed by Monday, November 13, shall be forfeited.

How are tax payments issued?
The protection wand shall provide an interface to activate and renew land claims as well as to review ownership status and payment history.

What is the tax rate and period?
A fee of one gold ingot shall be assessed per protector on 7 day intervals. The tax schedule is subject to change at any time provided 14-days public notice by the City Manager.

When are tax payments due?
An initial tax payment shall be required to activate a land claim and recurring tax payments shall be required to renew a land claim in subsequent installments.

Can recurring tax payments be issued in advance?
Yes, the maximum renewal term is eight installments from the current billing period.

Are tax payments refundable?
There is no reimbursement of renewal or activation fees.

What happens if an active protector is removed?
By removing an active protector, it shall return to an inactive state and the associated land claim shall be revoked, thereby forfeiting all current and pending tax payments.

What happens if an active protector expires?
Once an active protector expires, it shall return to an inactive state and the associated land claim shall be revoked.

The land-value property tax goes into effect on Monday November 6. A map of all pre-existing land claims shall be published on the JT2 site prior to this time, allowing property owners to prepare accordingly. Feel free to contact me, if you have any comments or questions. Thanks everybody for your cooperation and understanding!

What is the difference between the Tax Exempt District and the unmarked lands at and beyond the edge of the displayed map?
