Penalty for violating these rules will range from jail to ban depending on the severity of the infraction.

OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS

On the following topics:
*Desert_cobblestone - Have a craft with red dye and cobble to create?
*Flowers - How to implement into the world, random spot on map with vending or add to mob drops.
*Vending - The original / outdated laggy machines, TBD to be swapped with new fast machines.
*Anti-grief - RND made helpful code to deter griefers. LOL.
*Mobs - As close to lags as possible.
*TNT - Is updated by obey protection and does not make huge craters.
*Server restarts and delete player files.

Image
When re-creating this server the main goal was to keep it as similar to the original back in 2014. To simulate the incredible world Andrey made for us to play in. After all, it was our favourite server, favourite community, and favourite gameplay. It was a very unique place that a lot of us could call home. Not that is no longer, I would like to carry on the JT experience, and this is where I need your help.

The aforementioned topics if changed would modify from the original game, I rather not do this, but want to have a more secure server not at the cost of losing the original feel of the game.

So my questions for you are this: What would you like to see in this server without changing too much from the original gameplay?

I am open to any suggestions.

I absolutely LOVE this server! Great job Maikerumine and many thanks for hosting it xD

Requests:
Ok for your proposed changes.
Maybe increase the sound of placing seeds slightly. I can barely hear doing it though I can hear footsteps fine.
Maybe add protection logos. If players use them, it won't look so horrible in the air.
Delete voting booths. Nice idea but dumb players.

I dislike vending machines, they are too limiting, outdated and slow, smartshop is much better.

ServerError: Lua: Runtime error from mod 'smartshop' in callback on_playerReceiveFields(): C++ exception

too bad. they are buggy and will be rolled back asap.

I get this error far too much in both servers to keep them around.

I'm against player profiles reset, original j-t does not have this iirc. Performance impact is minimal in 0.4.14.

if you call that just test, so bye the best server of the world. Plus, in server description, there is 'no admin' so why is there admin log in every day? I know I'm banned and don't unban me cause I still have a hearth about just etst adn that server isn't a reference to just test. Few people likes but I don't. What people liked in just test is they were free, they had few limites (no cheat) but this server is more like ESM with no mods who wants be just test. But maike, just test is just test cause it was free server and that server isn't a reference to just test, you just remade old map with sam mods but just test's spirit isn't here, the free spirit. Thanks for reading and if you want answer, I wil answer.

Lag did actually run a cleaner script to scrub the player files daily, I remember, and have many o videos showing this as well.
Here is his script:
https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=10539&p=160953#p162449
And as we all know, his server was the fastest, most optimised server on the list.
I would like to keep this tradition also for gameplay. There is no reason to have people running all over the map making bases tens of thousands of blocks away to grow the map in unacceptable size proportions.
As with the original, this server will also do periodic map shrinks with his same unexplore script to keep the map size small.
He once sent me in private the entire map, a year old map and it was 267 megs. ESM on the other hand is about 5 gigabites, much too much to be read and written constantly, I am suprised my HDD's are still alive, actually.

It makes a tremendous difference in backups. It takes over 20 minutes to back up esm with over 70,000 playerfiles, and that is costing me space and time. I believe there is a huge performance hit, as all the other servers I had ran ran well until the player file size got massive.

I really should be posting this at esm, it is down for maintenance as well.

In version 4.9 that was really critical, because minetest was reading/writing all those files constantly, not sure about that now.


I believe this was fixed somewhere in 0.4.13-dev. Hmm, it feels like this script needs updating, because in theory it removes all files with default staff or empty ones.

20160816 MAP:

Added special block for Lag.
Made Axes reversible to craft.
Added trap door.
Tried to make spawn a "safer" place.


Special Thanks to sorcerykid for all the amasing work she has put into the roads, if it were not for her, the city would be landlocked.


Crafting for Lag Block:

This is a tribute server. It not Just Test.
There are rules, please read first post.
You seem to want to grief and get a reward, here is your reward: You are grounded from the server for one week. I really hope your attitude changes for the better.

Please beg lag to turn his server back on if you want grief. This server is MY version, not yours or anybody else, if you don't like it then please cry somewhere else and let us build without the threat of griefing.

Good day to you sir.
