Address: OFFLINE
Port: 30000
Moderator: None Yet
Default Privs: Shout, Interact

Note:
[spoiler]This server is in a beta phase, that means that even more mods are needed to give great game play. the server hardware will be updated as more players join, if you know of any good mods that will help this game become more of a challenge or features you would like to see, please give your feedback, there will be regular map backups.[/spoiler]
EDIT: Lagg has been fixed by about 80% placing nodes and acquiring them is faster now, if any other problems were to arise just let me know thanks :D , there are plans to upgrade the server if any other problems were to arise, already tested with my own pc and another friend with his, no lagg present.


About Us
A long time ago there where trees, grass and the ocean. But then war broke out between 2 great nations, the Miners from the East and the Testers from the West, this was know as the World Mine War! The battle lasted for 3 years, until eventually the Testers unleashed their secret weapon, the MESE bomb, but the results were not what they expected, the MESE bomb resulted more powerful then anybody would think. The only thing both nations saw was a white light in the sky, soon everything was gone.....everything that is left is a WASTELAND and YOU

Your only chance to survive are the ruined houses you can find in the world. There you can find useful stuff to survive: Food, water, seeds and even saplings. But you wont find that in every ruin. Some contain just food and just rarely you can find water or sapling.

Seeds can rarely be dropped when digging dry shrubs, wood can be get from the dead trees or from ruins.
Keep in mind, you must eat or you will starve. And hunger comes faster than you think.

Monsters rise during night time, so use the daytime to gather resources and build a safe place where you and your team of survivors can rest, but beware not only monsters are out at night, also other survivors might decide to be bandits.

Rules
1. Do not grief
2. Do not attempt to lag, crash, or otherwise hinder our server.
3. Do not spam
4. Be excellent to each other
5. Do not ask to be staff
8. We will remove offensive structures and floating platforms/structures.
8. Do not make lines around the map


Mods:

So far, it works quite well! The only negative aspect is that I experience lag when placing a node :)

Well, I tested it and wasn't very happy with the lag.
It took more than 10s to pick up a mouse (well, it's gone again because I right-clicked like crazy)
But it's nice to see another game-type online :)

Unfortunately, there was too much lag for this game to be enjoyable at all. This is a survival server, and with a game set on exploration so much, I don't think playing it could be enjoyable or even possible at all with such lag.

Kudos for the attempt, though.

This is just a test server like i mentioned i will get a better one once all the "impurity" are fixed, i know there is a bit of lag, but i want to know about mods needed, or some other features that would be nice adding, thanks for all the feedback

I understand there is a slight lagg, which will be fixed once i upgrade the hardware, i just need to know what other mods would you like to see, also the mice don't get added to the inventory, i will fix that ASAP

Thank you for the upgrade and optimization LandMine! The game is much more playable now.

Hmm, now that I've progressed in the game, I think a protection mod (such as this one https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=4212 ) might be useful.

EDIT: Your faction mod doesn't work. Probably because you didn't install the https://github.com/Jonjeg/localisation dependency

Not sure if it's allowed to place locked chests in someone else's base... But griefing my base is not!

Edit: Crafting still takes 10 minutes for me :( So I am not able to put a sign in front of my base with my name...

Is that your base? Wow - I visited it but saw Dominion's name, so yeah.

Also, I give you access to whatever chest and graves I kept. I am already committed to another server so I don't think I can play on this one, although it is awesome.

Well, why not :) I'm sure the stuff will be useful :) I need weapons to protect my base :D

UPGRADED SERVER!

So i went ahead and added more resources to the server the lagg on the wasteland game mode is to the minimum, still the wasteland concept was fun, but doesnt seem to draw alot of people, will run for another 3 days to see how it does, might change to another concept, or work on this same one but from another point of view
