VanessaE's Survival Server
daconcepts.com, port 30001IRC: Freenode channel #ve-minetest-servers
Please try my Basic Plus server also: daconcepts.com 30005
Admins: VanessaE, ShadowNinja, kaeza, cheapie, bulldog1 (and others as needed)
This server runs in survival mode with minetest_game and my Dreambuilder modpack: everything you probably will ever want to build with, plenty of tools to get the job done, but you better be ready to dig for your materials.
To get an idea of most of the server's content, you may wish to take a look at my Dreambuilder forum topic.
For detailed statistics regarding the performance of the server hardware, see http://daconcepts.com/vanessa/hobbies/m ... stats.html

This server runs in survival mode. Damage is enabled (e.g. mobs, falling, lava will injure just fine), but PvP, fire, TNT and bones are disabled. Griefing absolutely will not be tolerated, and will result in rollback and ban if confirmed. This server runs the newplayer-rules mod, so to get interact, read the rules and plug the keyword contained therein into the space provided for it in the form.
This server runs cheapie's player_textures mod, so if you have a specific Minetest or Minecraft skin, point me to it via this forum topic or catch me on IRC, and I will install it. Such changes will affect both this server and my Survival server. If it's a Minecraft 1.8 skin (e.g. 64x64 pixels), it will be cropped to 1.0 format, so please choose skins that won't lose too much detail.
Skins installed on this server affect all of my servers which support skins.
Building on the server
You can build anything you want, anywhere you want, with the following guidelines: Near the spawn, please stick to serious, high-class structures only please. Pixel art and generally-artsy stuff should be kept away from the spawn.
If someone else has built in an area you wanted to use, do not build into or immediately above those structures, period! Even if the building looks vacant, don't touch it - there are no "abandoned" buildings here. Griefing any part of any structure is strictly forbidden.
Please keep your structures near a main road, but do not build right on the end of the road (e.g. if extending the road would go through your structure); if this isn't practical, or there is no road yet, please build one, or build a spur off an existing road somewhere and then build alongside that. Try to keep your roads straight and try make them run out past your structure so others can build further. Sky structures are welcome, but please build them up high enough so as not to obscure or cast shadows on anything below.
And please - REPLANT YOUR TREES! (Preferably with the same type as that which you cut down).
See the forum topic for ShadowNinja's Advanced Area Protection Mod for instructions. The short version: to mark the area you want to claim, dig a few meters down in one corner of the area, and do . Then go to the opposite corner, fly up above the area, and do
