[Server 5.3.0] [minigames] A.E.S.

by Zughy » Post

So... hey there! After 9 months, we apparently did it. The server is in beta and we hope to improve it more and more with the passing of time. Without further ado...

A.E.S.

Image

In short
Minigames servers are the most played servers on Minecraft: they act as a hub featuring many different contents, so that players can choose what they like the most while at the same time having the possibility to try something new (and to increase the probability to find someone online). Well, we aimed for the same thing

Minigames Guide
You don't understand something? We have an in-game guide for that! Geolocalised in English and Italian
Image

Change outfit
Tired of the same skin? Well, you can change it in no time through the Wardrobe!
Image

Our mods
Half of the mods on the server are made by us. This is our group repo!


Community

Matrix
Find other players to play with, and, more broadly, join our community. You need a client like Element. Look for: minetest-aes

Why not Discord?

We get it, Discord is the hot thing, but it's proprietary and it doesn't respect its users. We believe in a future where the machines will help people and where people will be able to see what's inside them. We are not goods, we're bones and flesh. Matrix respects these ethical aspects, and it's been improving its quality a lot. Give it a try at least :)

Mumble: vocally chit-chat
If you want to talk with us or just play with your friends, we have a Mumble server. Mumble is like Team Speak but it's free software.

IP: 185.242.180.132

Who's behind the server
+Staff
I'm the founder of an Italian volunteering group called Etica Digitale (digital ethics, eticadigitale.org), where our goal is to divulge contents about free software, privacy, humans before machines and such. A.E.S. is one of our two core projects (the other one is a journey towards privacy), so if you want to help us with what we do this is our LiberaPay
Donate

Also, if we want to support us individually (the former is solely used for the group, we don't eat with those), these are our profiles

Very fun! Quick matches and simple yet compelling gameplay, can't wait to see this develop further!
I'll check up the lib and see if I can contribute anything :P

With mesecons digilines and LED marquee mods you could install my connect 4 subgame somewhere. Maybe an arcade island?

That's a nice idea but it'd make the server a lot heavier (I've actually never tried mesecons, but it looks huge), so we'd rather not do that. Also because it's not a server that big

well, you might reconsider mesecons. Mesecons can be very helpful with creating in-game logic. It has things like luablocks (more_mesecons) which can run code in the global environment with a pos variable passed relating to the block's position, it can power in-game informational screens which the user can interact with (digilines mods) it can have disappearing blocks, opening doors, and a lot more useful stuff.

When used lightly, (not tons of switching nodes or turning on lights going on all at once) it doesnt seem to add much to lag. I have it running on a raspberry pi 4 2 gb ram server, along with tons of other mods. Not too much lag. A little, yes, but like I said, I have lots of other mods.

Comon, Peoples! Play this game! No Players!?!

@Zughy Though there isn't anything to do if you are the only player on. So people join, but there is no one else to play, so they leave. Vicious cycle. I would suggest adding at least 3 singleplayer subgames or AI s that make it possible to play the subgames by yourself... thats hard though.

WHAT'S NEW #1

Block League
  • 4 hotbar slots instead of 8: no more empty slots!
  • New scoreboard HUD (see the screen down below)
  • Every match has now a duration (10 minutes, shown in the scoreboard), to avoid never-ending games
Murder
  • Map "Mansion" has now more ways to escape
And several crash/bugfixes

Yes, I used to play Minecraft with its redstone and I saw the CTF challenge done with mesecons. In these days the staff and I are SO busy with fixing things I can't spend extra time trying mesecons and evaluate it. We'll take it in consideration for the future, but it's not the top priority

Yes, this is a problem indeed, especially because if we are on the server, we can't write code at the same time. AI though is not the way to go, it'll take us a lot of time and it'll probably never be as good as a player. A thing like a parkour could suffice, but we need to create a reward first. We're planning to add an unlockable parkour skin, but first we must remove the support to MC 1.8+ skins that we have on Skins Collectible, as no other mod features them (denying us to use things like headanim or 3D armor)

------------

Also, we reached 8 connected players yesterday (all in Block League) and that's been hella fun. Thank ya all!

Skinsdb should support headanim/3d armor just fine

Yes, but AFAIK it doesn't allow to unlock skin, and aside of that, Skins Collectible has a better UI. Btw problem solved, support removed and headanim added!

Another player told me to clikc a sign to join games but that only teleported me infront of the sign. Tried to change skin but ran into same icon of a hat? Plus having to guess a word to join makes what should be simple hard. Quit without playing a game.

Signs don't teleport people, except if the queue ends, being teleported inside an arena. Probably you had the compass in your hand, which is the tool for teleporting around the lobby.
About the skin, there is no hat icon, I guess you meant the blue tee?
And yes, that's a bot/laziness filter: if people can't answer that question, I honestly don't really want them to play on the server because either 1) we have no way to communicate (they don't speak English) or 2) they are the kind of people not reading anything bothering staff to death

That would require a lot of work to be done (what's the goal? who wins? what are the things you can do along the run? etc) and probably more mods to be installed, so unfortunately I have to say no. We prefer to focus on simpler ideas, because there are just 3 of us working on the code

@Zughy Ok, I understand the problem of adding an UHC RUN minigame to AES, thank you for your anser !
I will try to make an UHC RUN mod for mcl2 when I got the time.

WHAT'S NEW #5

🏝 Lobby
- Suggestion box: if you have some suggestions, just write a book and put it inside the box ✉️
- Compass: added teleport to parkour and to spawn

🔫 Block League
- Background music! Every map has its own
- Match log: every game now shows in the upper right corner the last 3 actions that took place (kills, suicides, who got the ball and touchdowns)
- Hyperium: football field half blue and half dark red, to better understand which is your base
- Teams color changed: blue, red -> blue, orange
- HUDs color changed: positive messages are now green (previously blue)

🔪 Murder
- complete rework: no more victims, all cops + 1 murderer, random skin assigned when a match starts, more abilities for the murderer (massive blindness and skins roll) and 8 seconds must pass between a kill and another before using the knife again

Also I want to thank duckgo for the multiple videos he made about the server, such as https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=Nx7C1Ers46w . It means a lot to us

If you are interested in installing the connect4 game, here are the instructions to build it, along with the luacontroller code.

viewtopic.php?p=383269#p383269
(note: in the instructions, I use digiterms for the monitor and keyboard, but there is no need for that. Its very easy to set up the button/luacontroller array that sends the signals using the buttons like I did on my server. )

If you like the balloon jump, here is the mod that gives the balloons:

Thank you MisterE, but in the end we decided to not implement these mods. We'll rely on droppers, probably in January

📝 WHAT'S NEW #6

🔫 Block League
- Pixelgun: zoom in and out with the right mouse button, like a true sniper
- Victory/defeat jingle when a match ends

🔪 Murder
- Map "Mansion" reworked
- When the murderer kills a player, all the other players will see for 3 seconds where the murder took place

⛅️ Skywars
- New map: Ruins
