There is one thing that I dislike - protector_redo, it is pain to build with it and you also end up with those logos everywhere, areas or landrush/simple_protection can be viable alternative.

I completely agree. No arguments from us.
But... with the protection blocks. There's virtually zero help needed from "staff" when a less seasoned player wants to protect something. They just throw down a pro block and it's done. But yes... the glowing badges are indeed spammy. and no matter how good you hide them, they appear "out of place".

landrush is dead easy to use, you craft claim block and just put it down, it protects 16x16 cell from -100 to 200 iirc, that can be changed (same for simple_protection mod). Owner is shown in hud. You can check this mod on Fozland or Liberty Land.

Hi, I decided to join, and I'm just trying to find a nice spot for a house. :)
I have a skin, just wondering if it is OK (already converted for MT).

If you say that

Hey XtremeHacker, welcome! Your skin should be all set, as of last night's restart. :)

HOMETOWN is three weeks old!

What's new?

    *Armor shop is now open, with options for even the thriftiest players.
    *eddd opened a "Dollar Tree" store downtown, where he mostly buys wood. (Get it? Dollar TREE) *rimshot*
    *Sky_Fall_II opened a new convenience store next to the pet shop, you can get a little bit of everything, except for two day old hot dogs in a steamer.
    *ExeterDad has been busy behind the scenes working on code for every dang thing. (Adjusting TNT, new inventory and craft guide, and I-don't-even-know-what)
    *Celeste and Jonny had birthdays this week and broke their teeth on ExeterDad's unfinished (and inedible) cake. Heh. We hope they had happy birthdays anyway! :D

I was unable to get a map shot this week because my laptop was being a brat and wouldn't load all the chunks, but when I'm on a REAL computer (hear that, laptop??) I will take one. However, I did manage *some* screenshots. It's all about the castles this week!

We have some ambitious builders!

IMS_BULLDOGS built this "tiny" sand castle by the sea. The turrets are covered with dirt for farming purposes, so cool!

Image

teen's castle, truth's house, their pretty garden...and a PYRAMAZE! Seriously, the creativity...

Image

saavedra's Nyan castle, impressive build!!

Image

Thanks for looking, visiting the server, and for playing! Have a great weekend!

Coming soon!

Furniture store (Yes yes, I'll get to it, pinky swear. Y'all need to stop yabbering at me because that makes me yabber back and not get any work done)

:D

Stop whining. You're permabanned, and that's the way it is. If it was a temporary ban, you would understand that you could always be unbanned and get on whenever you want, and probably do more damage, whether by accident or on purpose. But if you know you'll never be unbanned, you'll probably learn your lesson faster.

Don't mean to sound like a jerk tho...

There are so many amazing builds to explore, and I've barely even had a chance to venture out of downtown! Dear heavens :D

Amount of protected land by eddd is huge, roughly half of city perimeter already taken.

eddd has visions of being a realtor. He claims he is protecting around spawn to only allow high quality builds in the area.
eddd is eddd... so only time will tell what is going on there. But.... squatting is not allowed as written in the rules. So he should be careful (and fast) with his vested efforts as those pro blocks are no match for a SuperPick. :P

Thank you for considering!

I have toyed with the idea of installing your mod. But I would have to really do some editing to prevent conflicts with commands and such that I already have in place. I really want the vanishing command, but it's not skins friendly at all without some tweaking. I won't rule out installing your mod. I'm just in over my head for now with things that I want to fix or implement. Real life naturally decides to consume my time about the time we decide to launch a server lol

I would be able to help when it comes to compatability with the skins mod and armor mod, and if you want to, you can reply with a list of conflicting commands and I can remove them in the code.
Please tell me what skins mod you use so I can make compatability.
Thank you for considering my mod!

But you're banned too, so you can't play either.

Stoneminer's banned? Doesn't appear so. Unless he has another name on our server. Not likely, as very few besides you have been banned.

I've been wondering if I should be enforcing specific rules regarding dating and/or role playing, since every time I login I see players engaging in these activities. But I can't find any mention in this thread and only a cursory warning at spawn. So I'm hesitant do discourage those players without more clarity on the subject.

Yes, the map_meta.txt was edited, map.sqlite deleted, restart. Over and over until we got something that was workable. We liked mountains, but there just wasn't enough "tamed" area between them. Spawn and a large area around were tera-formed like crazy, and was mostly jungle as well.

Going by memory and never generating a overhead view... that looks about right :)

So sofar helped me out and I got mtmapper up and running. I whipped up a 2k x 2k image. I still need a custom colors.txt generated, but the map looks pretty good. Thanks for the push to get this going. I wish I would of made images sooner :)

Sorry guys, i have been away from my moderator duties...real life caught up with me and I'm trying to free my schedule up again. I have briefly been on minetest servers past few days, but not very active.


Again my apologies, will try to be back soon
K. I'm bored with signatures.
