I've enabled the server-cloak mod (https://github.com/pandorabox-io/server_cloak)
This mod disables announce if a certain threshold of players is reached (currently around 15).

I did this in order to prevent the mass-flood of players if we are on top of the server-list, the max-players are still reached on weekends by the way (by regulars).
More players means also more lag (machines, mesecons, mapgen, etc).

I also want to focus more on quality than quantity and i had enough lag-mitigation for now, i've been doing this since the start.

The server is still reachable if you know the address/port...

Ok, got it, understand this ... as not public just mean not listed.

Good Idea, as I guess will be based on two parameter: gamer(sum) and/or lag(max)

Another:
since yesterday ?, sure today, when login or teleport with Travelnet to new area (even visited today before already) the map need much more longer to be shown.

First I thought cache is empty, but it happened again, later login, so s point I visited before also.

Not sure what changed, but I just see comment that this happen NOT only to me.

Yes, had the same issue: turns out the pipes were clogged again :D (pipeworks: https://monitoring.minetest.land/d/B37I ... refresh=5s)

Why not ditch pipeworks altogether in favor of something leaner?

Ohhh, admin is alive,
yes, the same I thought also

* and the gamer xercyst is still on the server
* and bugusing is still possible (minetest.conf has no: protector_flip = "true")
* and he still violate my builds, even I told you ... at first one

no other facts needed to understand about ...

added:
admin came in via IRC
"Thailand ... now you was able to make me angry, with your wining ..."
so that mean: if you get cheated in the game, dont tell me (the admin) ... WOW

so after admin banned ME for a month ... and also my kids,
what they sad about admin and xercyst in that moment should not be written here, but I fully agreed ! As thay have holiday until 1.7.

Ok back to usual ... and relax - one month will not take me my first place in XP ...

Hi,

I want to join pandorabox, but I am not able to connect. It always says "Connection timed out." Is this a server side problem or do I have to change something?

Edit: I had to update to a newer version of minetest.

Yeah, that still happens if the webmail/map or any of that web-stuff gets updated behind the scenes, should work again...

I am so sorry to maybe bother you (again) ...
Yesterday I wanted to see how much XP I gained as of extra XP by some items (Diamond, Mese) before ... but there I got confused at some other accounts ...

Code: Select all

Dig-count - Craft-count - Build-count - Death-count - Punch-count - Inflicted damage
taking : Dig-count + Craft-count + Build-count - ( Death-count * 1000 ) = "normal" result ?

example: Thailand
4.923.416 + 1.008.892 + 3.030.668 - ( 39 * 1000 ) = 8.923.976 = missing 298.268 xp to page = plus from xp-extra, ok ... about 32.000 Items digged with further 10 and 5 xp per item ... maybe

but at SwissalpS (miss 3.086.447) and Silver (miss 1.818.386) I dont get even near ...

does Punch-count - Inflicted damage add any xp, as I didn't find at mod calculations
... OR did they so intensive just dig diamonds for 10 xp ?

There were several changes over the years for the various xp rewards (digging, punching, placing, etc):
https://github.com/mt-mods/xp_redo/comm ... uiltin.lua

Those should explain the xp-differences.

I started the server in an open-source spirit and shared all mods, services and infrastructure-code along the way on github.

Now besides the server code being 100% opensource and free i'd like to share the current world-backup (the blocks and the non-ciritcal world-folder files):

The block-db and world-folder can be downloaded as a torrent (please help seeding that):
https://backup.pandorabox.io/pandorabox ... 10.torrent

Note: the database-backup is only available as a gzipped sql-dump.

In the future i want to share that data along with the wiki-dump semi-annually or on request.

I do expect some copy-cats in the long run but i think a shared world-backup outweighs the risk of a few mediocre copies of the server.
