Hey Blair! Haven't seen you in a while! Yeah we really should do an event at Redcrab.

Redcrab detected some problems with the /sendmail command, as reported by a couple of you earlier today. I am happy to note that the problem has been resolved, and we have sailing at this time :-)

Yeah long time no see! Actually I'm planning an event myself. I'm going to make a giant parkour/race tower with 10 floors. It's going to take awhile though but it's going to be fun! Hopefully you and some other people can partake in the race when it is finished.
Sorry about my incompetence!

Hey do you have coordinates, or instructions how to get there? I'm pretty certain I've not been there yet!

Cheers,
Rob

It's like going back to your old stomping grounds like a playground or a general place to hang out and seeing it completely gone, demolished, barren.

Redcrab, if you're reading this and more than likely not going to get this server back up, I just wanted to say thank you for all the fantastic memories you've provided me and a lot of other people with this server. So many laughs were shared, so many adventures, you wouldn't believe it.

I've never spoken directly to you, and you've never spoken to me, and people may think it's ridiculous for someone to have such an emotional bond to something as simple as a game server. If they spent as much time there as I did, met as many nice, intelligent, caring people as I did, and even have a hand in some of the adventures/projects that went down like I did, they would understand.

Once again, thank you for the memories.

An offer to make another attempt to duplicate Redcrab stands.

The world is likely to disappear, we're all aware of this, and this is a shame. If you're running captures, provide me with copies. However, what is really needed is help with reproducing the modset and porting it to the current engine.

I don't mind hosting a copy of Redcrab with old mods, but we don't know exactly what Redcrab has on the old server and some mods are also not going to work with Minetest 0.4.12 and up. If you'd like to see this world live on, contact me to discuss the matter.

I can be reached in the Freenode #minetest channel

It would be great if we could get the modset Redcabs server is working with right now. And also the map. Just updating to a newer version of the engine would be great...after doing a backup and checking it locally. OldCoder has enough experience with running servers in order to be able to help/run a more original version of Redcrabs server.

This redcrab is so mythical today, never have been on it, but would be glad to join it on 0.4.13 :D It will be mega cool to bring it back (screenshots are nice).

Redcrabs server still exists and can be connected to :-) It's just not so easy. You have to rename your cache folder and create a new, empty one. If your cache is empty, you can connect with a recent client to Redcrabs server. But: If you think the server's a myth, wait for the person behind it! He's occasionally been sighted on the forum...yet very rarely. In the past, it wasn't uncommon for a year to pass without a sighting of Redcrab. Still, his server runs. We all just wish there where updates! And ways to fix the falling nodes (gravel, sand) that fell into protected areas and cannot be removed now.

Redcrab was the first server I ever joined, I remember, In that time, there were almost no grifers, my house was unprotected, and I was living on some sort of neighborhood with small houses made of dirt and jungle trees, I bought that small house for 6 scorched stuff, and 4 iron... such a friendly community :')

Don't worry about redcrab. You can easily contact him if the server goes down. Just ip trace and use the email. I won't be sharing it on the forums for his personal privacy.

I downloaded minetest 0.4.4 for Redcrab, but the server's protocol if 6, and 0.4.4 client seems to be 13. :(

Phew! Took a while to get a client that would connect, and the server seems great!
Anybody want to play along with me?(You need an old version of the client though)
Edit: Here's the client needed to connect to it: https://github.com/minetest/minetest/ar ... 0106-1.zip
Edit 2: Never mind this post, I was connecting to the wrong port.

kaadmy that means you connected to the wrong port the servert on port 30000 is a completely different server to the one in this thread. the port for the server in this thread is 30401

Yep, I realized that after I posted that, i'm on the correct one now, and the /setemail command doesn't exist it seems :(
Edit: the /setemail command does exist, just that there's no help for it.

All right, finally got interact priv on redcrab.suret.net:30401.
Any advice on where to build?
Edit: I just realized that the server has been up for 63+ days without crashing O_O
Edit 2: Found a nice place to build, i'll start a small village/town(Keyport) at the coordinates -660, 3, -35. Anybody welcome to build there!

Nobody has contacted me regarding captures. I have the world as it was about a year ago, but buildings created since then are likely to be lost.

If there is interest in ensuring that the world continues, email me or see me in IRC. The goal is to create Redcrab Portable.

I need primarily updated captures and help reproducing the correct modset. Plus, Sokomine, your tree patch, though I might be able to get that from Silvercrab.

Other fixes to help Redcrab Portable run with newer built-in mods and/or the latest server core would be welcome.

Can somebody give randomminer763 interact privs? He's a friend of mine and doesn't have email or a forum account.
Edit: nevermind.

4aiman said this in a different thread. I thought it might be sensible to respond here.

I've offered repeatedly to help. I can host a copy of Redcrab. In fact, I produced a copy in 2014, but I wasn't able to duplicate his modset. So, old players found the new world too different for their liking.

But if even a few people are serious about Redcrab, and will offer even minimal assistance, the world can certainly be saved. The thing is, though, that nobody but Sokomine and I seem inclined to do more presently than talk about the issue.
