ANNOUNCE: "THE DIGITAL FARMS" Server

Two weeks ago I created a new, third server, "THE DIGITAL FARMS"

Name: THE DIGITAL FARMS
IP: 45.33.65.68
Port: 52000
Location: Newark, NJ

Namecoin: digitalfarms.bit, port 52000


The Digital Farms is very similar to Free Pizza Server, but is intended to have a focus on farming. The hunger bar depletes quickly (1 loaf per minute), and Farming Redo and Mobs Redo's mobs_animal mod are used.

The mods included are basically the same as my Creative Mode server, The Creative Gardens, though it does not include the heavy-duty plant and tree mods (plantlife_modpack, tiny trees, moretrees), nor does it include mesecons which wouldn't go well on a non-creative server (though boost_cart and travelnet are present).

Protection is provided through the Protector Redo mod. There is damage on the server, but no PvP.

The Digital Farms uses the new Mapgen v7.

Commands are: /spawn (to Spawn Town), /sethome and /home, /teleport playername or x,y,z

Screenshots to come as more people build on the server.

RULES:

Rule #1: Be nice
Rule #2: No hacking
Rule #3: No griefing
Rule #4: No impersonation
Rule #5: No bugging
Rule #6: No simulation of sexual acts
Rule #7: No sexual advances
Rule #8: No recruiting for discussions outside of Minetest (IM, Skype, etc). Public IRC channels are OK.
Rule #9: No sharing of passwords

Have fun and let me know what you think!

Letting everyone know that I am aware of the problem where everyone keeps getting booted and unable to connect for a minute or two, it's happening to me too and I'm taking a look.

EDIT 7/22/17: Problems should be fixed now. Thank you!

Shops have now been added to the server. You can make your own shops where players can trade items for yours. A fork of simpleshops is used, it is based on trading, not currency (if you want "currency" you can trade for/between paper, bars, and gold coins)

Ask me and I can add your shops to the Shops travelnet (accessible at the spawn area)

Just a note that a lot of new stuff was added between December 2017 and January 2018, including full-size unified_inventory, waypoints, armor (no pvp), horses and more.

By request of "Miner123", here is a 4K-resolution map of The Digital Farms, made with minetestmapper (the C++ version which supports postgresql)

The Digital Farms has become very popular since I added shops some time ago, but is still less than a year old. The spawn area is very distinguishable, as well as Tomoko's Bridge, which is plus-shaped and goes between a small farm outside of spawn, a large farm by (I think) Pik, redblade7's farm, and the Island Marketplace. Griefer's Prison is also visible. Can you find anything I missed?

EDIT: Apparently 4K is too big for imgur, so the full resolution is scaled down (it's still a lot more than 1080 so it doesn't really matter that much :). Anyone know of other image hosting that will cover 3840x2160 and will give me thumbnails?

By request I've uploaded more recent ones. This is one dated 4/4/2018

Hosting is via my Discord server (too NSFW to discuss or link to here, but it's on my Twitter page), which keeps the full 4K resolution (unlike imgur which scales it down a bit)

I am aware of the daily crashes going on. It stems from the unmaintained bees mod. I am looking for a solution.

I found a bunch of problems with the bees mod, and have tested out solutions and it seems to work. Thank you for your patience.

Yesterday I discovered a typo introduced late February 2018 which had caused additional slowness. This has been fixed as of May 9, 2018.

Some time ago, I removed fish from my servers because they were causing lag. This left the penguins untameable. By popular demand, now you can once again tame the penguins - with desktops, laptops, and servers! :D

The bees mod previously mentioned, which for a while I was able to stop crashing at the expense of the beehives being broken, has now been replaced with the nobees mod, which replaces beehives with tree stumps, and other bees mod items with stumps, wood, and honey blocks.

Note that this does not affect the bees that go hopping around, which you can craft into the more realistic looking hives that produce honey drops, which may be eaten or crafted into honey blocks. This is from the well-maintained mobs_redo animal mod.

This will make both Gardens and Farms overall faster and more stable. Thanks to LDH for putting the nobees mod together (I contributed to the code as well).
