Re: [Server] Just Test Tribute (Minetest S3 Engine)

Hello all, I just wanted to thank everyone for helping out with the forthcoming relaunch of Just Test Tribute. All of your bug reports have definitely kept me very busy these past weeks. In just the first 24 hours alone, over twelve trophies were awarded! A handful of players were also lucky enough to snatch up some cool memorial blocks. Congratulations to everyone for participating!

Fortunately the majority of critical bugs were resolved in the first few days. But there are still a few lingering issues that need to be addressed: most notably the broken ore generation. That is one of the main reasons that I still haven't brough the main server back online. I want to fine tune the algorithm and regenerate all ores below -2000, so that mining explorations will be more rewarding for everyone.
  • Level 3 Game Master
    talamh - For promptly reporting the issue: Names are combined on splash screen
    putney34 - For promptly reporting the issue: Typo in craft guide for bones slabs
    putney34 - For promptly reporting the issue: Jail respawn position is too high
    Master_CJ - For promptly reporting the issue: Page turning sound is non-local
  • Level 2 Game Specialist
    talamh - For promptly reporting the issue: Puddles remain after cutting tree
    putney34 - For promptly reporting the issue: Worn protection mask crashes server
    Master_CJ - For promptly reporting the issue: Closing safe crashes server
  • Level 1 Game Technician
    AspireMint - For promptly reporting the issue: Hand drops when dying at spawn
    putney34- For promptly reporting the issue: Nyans disappear below water
    catagent101 - For promptly reporting the issue: Hand drops when using macro
    talamh - For promptly reporting the issue: Water is not flowing
    JNEITRONS - For promptly reporting the issue: Puddles appear inside house
    Master_CJ - For promptly reporting the issue: Screwdriver does not work
I also wanted to give a shout outs to erstazi and Master_CJ, whom gracially offered to come onboard as our newest moderators. Alongside the rest of our staff, I think they both have the experience and dedication to ensure that the Just Test Tribute server remains fun and enjoyable for our growing community of players!

Incidentally, Master_CJ also constructed a very fitting memorial at spawn with dedications to several notable players from the original just test era. Although, the statue went through several phases of griefing at first, it's now properly protected. Definitely worth a visit on any sightseeing tour of the server :)

Of course, I'm also impressed by the scale and scope of so many other builds that people have created in just the course of a few weeks! Check out this before and after aerial view of spawntown to see how much the server has grown already!

The rapid pace of development is even more evident just by looking at these weekly satellite maps:

Speaking of maps, I have fielded a lot of questions lately about what exactly will happen to this map as testing nears completion. While indeed, this server was originally intended as a test of the Just Test Tribute server, I think there is merit in preserving all of the creations that people have made thus. So you can all rest assured, this "temporary" server will indeed remain online indefinitely :)

Just a quick heads up, I've created another server topic specifically for the @test@ server. General discussion relating to both servers can continue here, but anything relating to testing should preferably go in the new topic so as not to clutter this one with bug reports.

It is my own personal fork of Minetest that includes various custom features. The source is not currently published anywhere.
