How do I warp to a specific location? AND where can I get some starter tools...or just some wood at least...

There is no teleporting feature added to this server - I tried to keep it fairly vanilla so as not to make it too heavy.

As for wood, just catch me or one of the server admins online next time you sign on and ask for it (you have to be online in order for one of us to give it).

Could you break the fence at -175 ; 19 ; -194 ? I'm making an interchange to connect the Ring Road to the South Highway.

Could I have this skin ?

Broke the fence, but I can't install a skin for you because you have dashes in your username. Some obscure bug in Windows builds gets in the way of texture filenames with dashes, causes players to get stuck trying to login.

It's a pity ! I spent time on it. Is this bug already reported and where does it come from ?
Is it possible to change player's name without losing any data ?

I've found this bug at https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/1125. It has been fixed on February 2nd. I suppose the Minetest version from it you run the server is outdated. Is it possible to update it ?

The bug is in the clients, not the server. If I use that feature, old clients get stuck.

People should know better than to use old clients when they can get newer ones, unless their computers choke on the newer ones.

The problem is iOS clients and folks who use Kindles. Many of them are still stuck at 0.4.8 or thereabouts, or they otherwise can't seem to figure out how to update their clients, because of Buildcraft and its relatives.

That said, I'm eventually gonna give up on these older clients, but not just yet.

I've found something strange about glass : we can see through the ground. It wasn't the case a few days ago. I think you've updated minetest_game with the new glass drawtype. On github, amaz1 says that the bug is probably from the server.

Indeed, I did. I just pulled last night as part of some routine updates, but just to avoid the glass becoming a big problem, I've rolled the serves' copies of minetest_game back to the pre-fancy-glass previous state. The change will take effect at the morning restart.

My Minetest crashes at least 6 times, on this server, around 12 pm (French time). It crashed immediately or 1-2 minutes after. I had the latest dev version. I've removed it and installed 0.4.10-stable and it works.

Is it a problem on the server or on the version I used ? I've played yesterday with the dev version and no problem. There was an update this morning.

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and I've intalled Minetest from the PPAs.

I've not seen any error message in the debug.txt.

Gael de Sailly, I also had that happen to me on other servers. I think that the commit tonight fixed it though...

It was most likely that commit you were on, Gael - I had the same problem, but it's fixed now with RBA's latest commit that went in today.

Notice to all users of my servers: I have changed the morning restart time to 1:30 am to better coincide with the slowest period my servers seem to experience lately. This change affects all of my servers.

For those who haven't noticed, the spawn point on this server has been moved. It now sits about 2 km from its former location, near the end of West St. The old building has been torn down, a new spawn building has been erected at the new location, and already some new structures have been built nearby.

In the process, the server's rules have been simplified.

Happy building!

Very good. Players will now find new, empty land to build on without having to look far, without the existing buildings beeing dammaged in any way (apart from the spawn building itshelf beeing reconstructed). For players who have their house close to the old spawn, a command like /oldspawn would be helpful. Or /spawn 1 or something like that.

I think the players should look themselves away from the spawn. The problem is that many are lazy and do not look.
That is what happens in real life: we have all seen clumped cars in the parking lot and the median just ahead a supermarket, a fair, etc, while the rest of the parking lot is empty! Or people who take the car to go to the next street!
I hate this habit. I'm not happy that we come to move the spawn because the older is overloaded.

It's definitely better to have a new place as spawn instead of starting a new map as some less well-tended servers do. And the players joining the vanilla server may be rather new and inexperienced. Beeing able to find a plot soon will help them.
