VanessaE's Survival Server



daconcepts.com, port 30001


IRC: 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)

Game Info:

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.

Server Status:

For detailed statistics regarding the performance of the server hardware, see http://daconcepts.com/vanessa/hobbies/minetest/stats.html

This server shuts down briefly for backups at 5:00 am US Eastern time (11:00 am CET).

Software Version

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

To connect and play, you will need a reasonably good PC. A dual core 2 GHz CPU (or faster) with 2 GB of RAM and any GPU less than 10 years old should do. Mobile devices are not recommended.

This server has an extra mod which disallows entirely-numeric and "Guest123456" types of names. Please choose a proper username when you sign on. If you find that this server is inaccessible for a time, please try again later.

Default Privileges

fast, home, shout, zoom

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.

Skins

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).

Land ownership:

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 /area_pos1. Then go to the opposite corner, fly up above the area, and do /area_pos2[icode]. Then do [icode]/protect <some description here> to actually claim the area.

If the area is too big, request areas_high_limit privilege from one of the admins, or just have them protect the area for you. Placing the block automatically protects the area, and digging it removes the protection. Shift-digging will leave the protection in place, but will only give you back a few steel ingots, so there is a "cost" involved (this is to prevent people from just reusing one block to protect many areas).

Also, there are protection blocks you can craft and place, which protect a fixed radius around the block.

Language

This server is primarily English-speaking.

Of course there are limited exceptions, for players who just can't speak English at all.

Freedom of speech is paramount here, but I do have some rules about it: 1. Don't harass anyone. 2. Hate speech, harrassment, etc. are absolutely not tolerated. 3. Leave your religion in your house of worship - this applies equally to in-game names as to your speech. 4. This server is not the ghetto, so take the rap-video trash-talk somewhere else.

Undesirable Actions

Although damage is enabled, this server is NOT intended for general player-vs-player combat - if such is desired, you absolutely must obtain clear permission from the person you wish to fight. This server runs ShadowNinja's "areas" mod, xban, and future_ban. Griefing absolutely will NOT be tolerated and will result in loss of build privileges and a ban if confirmed.

(Mostly-reposted from the Creative Server thread)

I've created a second server for people who want to play in Survival mode. It runs my game, with a brand new map (except I copied the spawn over from the Creative server and gave it a new look), and has hostile mobs enabled. It also has DanDuncombe's currency mod. Address is vanessae.mine.bz port 30001.

Passwords/privs, ban lists, skins, etc. have been coped from my Creative server so that existing players there can sign on here and start playing right away -- except no one but me has fly privilege since this is a survival server. Player inventories of course have not been copied except in a couple of cases. Only the spawn is currently owned (by me) since, well...it's up to you folks to build stuff that should be protected! :-)

Both servers are up and ready for normal use.

Enjoy!

Once I log on, here is my skin.

EDIT: Do I keep my old password on this server? I don't know where I put my password on your creative server, can you pm me it?

Passwords have been copied from the Creative server (didn't I just say that? :-) ), so you can just log in if you can remember it. I can't send you your password, but I can reset it. Just let me know if I need to.

Skin installed, it'll take effect at the next restart.

Never mind, I found my password.

Update: A number of components that were disabled before, such as most of the camo modpack, bobblocks traps, etc. have been re-enabled. Also, fake_fire mod has been added and gloopblocks just got a small update too.

Update: fire mod has been added back in, but burning is disabled per the server's config. This should stop those errors coming from the dungeon masters.

Update: Titanium mod's tools are way-overpowered. I've reduced it to 1/10 its default values, but it's still way more durable than even diamond (roughly 5x) or mese (roughly 8x).

Update: disabled camo modpack's NPCs - they're laggy and they keep duplicating themselves.
