Not So Simple Server (Mk IV - 2019, beta)

A server focused on bringing you the Not So Simple Mobs online experience with Not So Simple Mobs 3.1!

    * Server: not-so-simple-server.duckdns.org
    * port: 30000

The Story So Far

Welcome to a world in which hordes of vicious mobs will hunt you down. There are monsters in the seas, in the skies, in by every tree and flower, and deep in the mines. There are even portals to a secret underworld...

Your goal: defeat the monsters, harvest their corpses to make stronger weapons, and craft the Final Boss's egg - the Mese Dragon!

Your extended mission if you accept it: find the portal to Morlendor, the hellscape deep underground, and seek out its denizens to craft the most powerful weapons of sin... ready to take on the Ruler of Morlendor at the heart of the world....

GAMEPLAY

On this server, you will spawn somewhere out in the wilderness - very likely far away from any other players.

You can add your friends using 'spawn add <playername>' and play together, but otherwise, you are on your own! It costs the player issuing the invite 4 Energy Spheres (81 life energy), so you'll have to fight a few monster first and prove your worth if you want to bring players to you!

Private chatting is implemented by channels, you can switch to your own private channel to avoid hearing all the global witter if you want to just concentrate on your adventure!

    Join a channel with "/channel join <channel name>"
    You can invite people to your current channel: "/channel invite <playername>"
    You can return to the global channel with "/channel leave"

Babelfish chat translator is also present here, so you might be able to talk to players in other languages too!

RULES

    * This server is pretty much unmoderated. Use at your own discretion.
    * Private messages are disabled, to prevent gratuitous spamming. You can use chat channels to talk to your friends in your own private space.
    * There will be no assistance from ADMIN. ADMIN may never even visit.
    * Let me know if you do a video, I always enjoy watching them :-)

Are you up to the task? See the words of the Ancients:

+ Chat log excerpt




THIS SERVER IS NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED. Build if you want, but this is not a builders' server. We're here to fight the hordes of doom.

And don't try playing on a mobile device. For your own sake.



Good luck.

I captured a Nightmaster.

Will be very useful for protecting me at long ranges :)

The map has been re-loaded.

I'm working on a restart-and-backup routine that can run unattended.

Until then, intense griefing is liable to cause a world re-set.

Fixed the privs issue that prevented people from setting home and chatting - evryone now has "home" and "shout" privs -- apologies!

To date it looks like people have not really been bothered exploring...

It's as if they were too scared or something.... ;-)

Hah! I had forgotten I have been meaning to add this.... Will do soon!

I did have to add a fire extinguisher otherwise Phoenix destroys any forest the players visit often :-/ https://github.com/taikedz/vivarium/blo ... f/init.lua

I am still trying to figure out the regular backups but map resets should only happen in dire circumstances...

Added ;-)

I guess this adds to some map gen, so will mean it will be only active in newly generated areas? Luckily then, not much map has been generated yet :-P

Unfortunately it will be active only in newly generated areas...
For the Phoenix I think that we will add a special fire that disappear sooner than default fire...

Hi people,
I have walked over 1/4 of the map (0,-200 to 0,15000), followed rivers and coastlines, but can NOT find any papyrus!
Are there any?
If there are, they are extremely rare!

Yes, LOL, I need paper for name tag for mob tamer.
I will keep looking for the papyrus.
Papyrus still spawns at water on grass right?

OK..
I found the papyrus..it looks like it spawns out in the water not just on the shore.

NEXT..
What do the floor, stack, and send staves do and how do you use them?

Ah. Dangit. Staves are not meant to be available to players on this server... I use them for managing the server and fixing things....

Except maybe the Sender staff which sends mobs out of range for a few seconds so you can try to make a get away....

Staff recipes have been turned off, except for Staff of Melting (which is still being worked on) and Sender Staff (which is ready for use).

I think I found the Dungeon Master:

Flame wake. (Trailing lava)
Lava spikes. (Four columns around you when cast)
Destroys nodes in path.
Diamond sword has very little, if no damage.

LAG:
Eating did not compile before death.
When the spawn request appeared, the chat showed I was killed four times.(Kind of like dying in lava with lag)

Ouch. That would be the Lava Titan.

You should check the NSSM swords... weaponry is a waste of metals on this server ;-)

Noted about lag. Will see what I can do to improve that, but performance is generally good so far.... note the server is based in the UK if that could explain anything....?

Lava Titan is indeed challenging... interesting that you found too many of them though... I suspect that's down at the Deep Colony?

It seems that when anyone explores and finds a Lava Titan, they just run away to the different part of the cave. Any previously active Lava Titan will thus hang around. Systematically running away will thus cause Lava Titans to multiply rapidly..... either you have to fight them, or you need to hang around near them until they despawn (their life timer is only active when they are close to a player)

Hint: using a protection block will null some of their abilities....
