Space themed Server (but with much more than that:)

Directions
Server-Adress: pandorabox.io (159.69.92.148)
Server-Port: 30000

Main Page: https://pandorabox.io
Map (realtime): https://pandorabox.io/map/#-1782.25/493.5/10
Highscore: https://pandorabox.io/highscore/
Issue tracker (technical issues): https://github.com/pandorabox-io/pandorabox.io


About
Survial Minetest server with hunger, vacuum and xp.
The main aspects are:

You spawn at the sky-platform above earth. On this platform is the admin-shop and the priv-building.
There are a few Teleporters up there which lead you to earth,moon or deep space.
On earth and under ground spawn dangerous monsters, best to avoid them or gear up!
Buildings on earth can be viewed in the realtime map: https://pandorabox.io/maphttps://pandorabox.io/map/#-1782.25/493.5/10

Moon/Space
Everything above y 1000 has no atmosphere/air, you have to use a spacesuit to survive there.
Also: torches won't stick and if you build a building there you have to make it air-thight (full blocks and corners) and use the air-pump (HV-machine)

Spaceship
You are encouraged to build your own spaceship for mining on the Moon and traveling among the stars. A basic layout and inspiration can be found on the BuckarooBanzai travelnet (https://pandorabox.io/map/#-1789.03125/472.5/13) at Station MSS Behemoth

Tutorial section
Also on the spawn platform is a Tutorial-teleporter with various player-contributed Tutorials (mesecons, space, etc)

Chat commands
  • /spawn teleports you spawn (shop at skyplatform)
  • /home /sethome
  • /mission_abort aborts the current mission (also in unified inv as button)
  • /highscore ingame highscore (primitive version of https://pandorabox.io/highscore

Rules

  • Moved the whole cluster (minetest, tileserver, forum) to a new Server

All in all: Nothing changed gameplay-wise, just a little downtime

Yeah, who doesn't? :)
I already installed my vacuum mod (https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=20195) and as far as i read your code, the breathing logic is not really compatible...

But i really like your textures and nodeboxes, they are very well done...

* Server is currently down for maintenance due to excessive lag, updates follow here...

Edit: Up again, found some source(s) for the lag spikes (a mod and some db leftovers) should run smoothly again

Mods
  • Updated xp_redo mod (issues with hud placement and some new ranks)

Very nice server ! Spent some good time on it yet.

Drills and mining lasers seems to be disabled. I understand mining lasers are awfull for the map but drills are very usefull, and not only for mining (for example, earthwork before building).

[*] Added areas mod https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=7239 (so no one has an excuse to NOT protect his stuff now!)


Is this supposed to be enabled by default ? I ask because I've no area priv so unable to use area protection.

Thanks, i'll reconsider enabling the mining drill. There wasn't much discussion about it until now :)
