[SERVER] VanessaE's Banana Land [5.1.0-dev]

by JiCeyCraft » Post

Banana Land

daconcepts.com port 31009

VanessaE took over Banana Land recently, I thought it might be normal to notice it in the title of this topic.

I can't tell how much I enjoy it and I thank our Lady and her team to do so.

Just a reminder :

Banana Land is a Family-Friendly Survival Server. That means you can find kids among the players.
So, the following Rules apply :

- No Adult/18+ talk (limited swearing is okay if used appropriately)
- No griefing.
- No harrassing.
- PvP can be allowed in certain circumstances but will not become a habit. If you want PvP, go elsewhere.
- No dating
- No roleplay
- Help each other if you can.

This server runs Minetest from the official Github repository, and requires version 5.0.1 or newer.

A number of mods can be found on Banana Land, so your inspiration can be unleashed. You will find it easy to build your own creations.

There is a money system on the server. With Minegeld, you can buy what you need.
Gaining Minegeld? Easy : mine, build... you get 10 Mg per in-game day as long as you're doing stuff.

Gaining Privs to go further in the game will depend on your behavior. So, don't harass Moderators or Admins to get them. This won't work. :) That said, there are exceptions: areas_high_limit, streetlight, and spill privileges may be requested and will be issued on a case-by-case basis.

You should be able to send the admin a message in-game using /mail. Also, you can try messaging LadyPyle.

Hi! I noticed this thread, the server I play on (Blocky Survival) just had a similar issue where a hacker came and used multiple IPs/usernames to wreak havoc on the server. I have a feeling that this is the same person.

IF IPBan only bans that one 4 block IP, just next login with the router there is another IP, just last number changed - as a ISP used a block (first 3 numbers) or more of them for a region and its costumers there.

With EUBan the ban is done to 3 Blocks, mean all the other 253 IPs of the same range, most the range of a gamer, is blocked also. I use this at my Server.

Against VPN IPs difficult, but in Combination of NAme Ban should get him/her off ...

On my server, if the player is repeatedly joining from specific subnets, then I will temporarily block logins from those subnet(s) using an authentication rule like

Code: Select all

try "Sorry, we do not accept logins from $addr at this time."
when $addr is /192.168.13^15.?/a fail
Also, I haven't seen Malaclypse online in quite some time. Then again, I've not been playing as much recently either. I imagine he is busy with life priorities.

I wrote a Python script to convert a regular VPN blocklist into iptables entries.

https://github.com/doyousketch2/VPN_blocklist

You can hunt through the "output.txt" file and see if it has relevant IP ranges, then just add those to your server.

https://github.com/doyousketch2/VPN_blo ... output.txt

or add all of 'em if you feel like it, up to you. Skip any VPN addresses you, or your moderators, may use.

This past week and these 2 days, the number of impersonators has increased, causing conflicts with other players, bullying, harrasment and that kind of things.

Recently, LadyPyle and I had to remove huge lava flows in the server, hoping it would decrease the Global Lag we have on the server. This did not happen. On the contrary, the multiplication of automated production factories have boosted this Global Lag to the point that the game is quasi-impossible to play.
Today : max_lag=74.6582

Sooner or later, there will be a new "Hometown 0.2".

mods like this and xban2 always seemed counterproductive to me.

IP bans should be done by the system, not the game.

If the server goes through the initial joinplayer routine, then decides to kick them out, that's clock-cycles that could have been used for actual players, instead of wasting it on ones you don't want there in the first place.

I said what I had to say.
Hello you,
here is the Admin (Thailand) from Server "Celine in Thailand"

flooding with gamers:
check please the mod "no_guests", it will filter most of the mobile cheater apps by filter for names, at me it blocks about 5 gamers a minute, saving a lot of traffic. check one of my last postings with my just running code.
As this mobile cheating Apps are most the reason yet at me.

max_lag=74.6582
max lag is only the problem, as log the lag is real, not just shown after the event.
I mean, when someone is forcing mapgen, lag is active unless he stops exploring,
but after an lag making event is gone, normal the lag sink slow (by special programmed routines), but the game fast usable as normal.
check with maybe mod lagcheck what mod are responsible for this, most top 10 is enough to check out and find solutions. automated production i have a LOT, but most the tubes/pipes without overflow exit are responsible.

I look for your next answer and might help then further, as my lag is back from near 3 to 0.2, as found mistake used pipes, changed the timer and chance from some heavy mods like moretrees, monsters, ...

good luck

edit: a closed for new gamers like at me, can you give "Thailand" a visa ? so I can look with some time live

Yeah, I take a strict hands-off approach to the server. I only host it, I do not manage it.

@Festus1965 Problem is :
I am only a simple player, so can do few things.
LadyPyle seems to be the only MODerator online.

There will be no moderators anymore. Effective immediately, Bananaland is no more. In cooperation with the account holder, backups have been made, and the Bananaland server has been shut down.

That mean "Account holder" is may be also the Admin even doesn't want anymore ? Otherwise the post is strange.

So bad Luck, but maybe remember my solutions if some day ... good Luck all.

LadyPyle ... if search a new job haha, no take a off and relax !
JiCeyCraft ... thanks for your "inbound", most just change server ... good luck also.

I am just testing server 5.0, and so far running, but when i log in ... gone ... hard work, so be nice to admins, it IS a hard job.

Is there a way to get a copy of our builds? Or at least bring the server online in non-interact mode for a couple days so that players can download their builds? I spent many weeks constructing a city, and would be disappointed to think all that hard work was for naught.

The "account holder" refers to the person who owns and controls the Bananaland files hosted on my machine. He's on the forum, so he can speak up if he wants (I have pinged him).

Sorry, the backup will not be made available to the public, and as far as I know, there's no reasonable way to run a Minetest server in a read-only state. We already have bad actors out there who will just download the map files, or capture them in-client from a running server. Bringing it back online would just encourage someone to do that and then turn around and try to *host* the captured data as a new server.

It's not that the server owner is uninterested, it's that Bananaland has turned into a unfixable mess of a broken world, broken mods, and bad players. Sorry guys.

Difficult and hard decision. And wise also in the same time.
Nevertheless, it hurts. (That's life, after all).

I just hope that Lady will contact me soon, in here. *crosses fingers*

I'm confused. If the account holder owns and controls the Bananaland files then wouldn't it be the account holder's decision whether to make the backup available or to allow someone else to host a copy of the map?

Btw, I do have local map saves, but only from before December. It would just be nice to have a more recent copy of my builds.

How do you make it, already?
