ANNOUNCE: "THE VALLEYS" Server

by redblade7 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 07:42

A few days ago started a new server, "THE VALLEYS".

Name: THE VALLEYS
IP: 45.33.65.68
Port: 54000
Location: Newark, NJ

Namecoin: valleys.bit, port 54000


(Yes, that is the same port on the VPS I used for my previous failed attempt at a second server, The Shootout, a few months ago. If The Shootout is still in your favorites, it will be replaced by The Valleys.)

It is a sandbox server, inspired by Anarchist Vanilla Server, except it's not entirely vanilla and not entirely anarchist.

While I initially intended it to be a vanilla server, I got bored and added more stuff to it. Don't worry, it will not have as much as The Creative Gardens does, and lacks the plantlife, moretrees, and tiny trees mods which make Creative Gardens beautiful but slow for mobile users. For this reason users get 'fast' privileges by default on The Valleys, which is not granted on The Creative Gardens.

It is a sandbox server, but has the anti-lava dumping mod, and fire and tnt are disabled. Obvious griefing (like pit griefing, water dumping, and misuse of the streams) are still prohibited. The "spawn pit" and "spawn building" are obviously protected.

There is damage on the server, but no PvP.

The Valleys is so named because it uses the rarely-found valleys mapgen.

Mods which are used include homedecor_modpack, signs_lib, boost_cart, coloredwood, farming redo, unifieddyes, moreblocks and moreores, as well as the standard admin stuff.

The standard animals mobs are also included, these provide food for health and a lot less work when you need wool. In late 2017, fish and horses were added.

As of 7/14/17, travelnets were added.
As of 1/10/18, lots of new stuff was added, including armor (no pvp) and waypoints, and the non-"lite" version of unified_inventory is now used, providing home buttons (this is different from /sethome and /home, so you can have 2 homes now :)

It offers the same commands as Creative Gardens: /spawn (into Spawn Pit), /teleport, /sethome, and /home

The rules are the same as Creative Gardens:

Rule #1: Be nice
Rule #2: No hacking
Rule #3: No griefing
Rule #4: No impersonation
Rule #5: No bugging
Rule #6: No simulation of sexual acts
Rule #7: No sexual advances
Rule #8: No recruiting for discussions outside of Minetest (IM, Skype, etc). Public IRC channels are OK.
Rule #9: No sharing of passwords

No screenshots will be posted, due to it being a sandbox server.

Have fun and let me know what you think!

Nyan Cats were deleted from the official Minetest game for legal reasons, and are only available as part of a "PB&J Pup" mod, a proposed replacement for Nyan Cats that everyone hated. I was one of the few people who liked PB&J Pup.

As the Valleys and The Digital Farms were only a few months old, I just got rid of the Nyan Cat/PB&J Pup mod completely.

Since the Creative Gardens had existed for over a year, I am using the Nyan Cat/PB&J Pup mod there, but subjecting the Nyan Cats to artificial scarcity:

* I removed Nyan Cats from creative inventory (PB&J Pup and the rainbow are still there)
* No future automatic map generation of Nyan Cats or PB&J Pups
* As usual, Nyan Cats disappear when used as fuel
* Nyan Cats already in containers and in your inventory can be used
* Once dug, Nyan Cats convert to PB&J Pups

This is being done more as an act of protest. While most people will say "I'll just put up the video again or torrent it" I'm the kind of person who prefers "I don't want to support you or your videos, if I buy it at all it'll be second-hand from eBay"

Letting everyone know that I am aware of the problem where everyone keeps getting booted and unable to connect for a minute or two, it's happening to me too and I'm taking a look.

EDIT 7/22/17: Problems should be fixed now. Thank you!

The shared locked items and locked travelnets were removed as they have bugs and fail to store names.

Just a note that a lot of new stuff was added between December 2017 and January 2018, including full-size unified_inventory, waypoints, armor (no pvp), horses and more.

By request of "Miner123", here is a 4K-resolution map of The Valleys, made with minetestmapper (the C++ version which supports postgresql)

As The Valleys is a sandbox server, people generally stick to the same areas and it isn't populated. Still it's fun to look at.

EDIT: Apparently 4K is too big for imgur, so the full resolution is scaled down (it's still a lot more than 1080 so it doesn't really matter that much :) Anyone know of other image hosting that will cover 3840x2160 and will give me thumbnails?

By request I've uploaded more recent ones. This is one dated 4/4/2018

Hosting is via my Discord server (too NSFW to discuss or link to here, but it's on my Twitter page), which keeps the full 4K resolution (unlike imgur which scales it down a bit)

Yesterday I discovered a typo introduced late February 2018 which had caused additional slowness. This has been fixed as of May 9, 2018.

Some time ago, I removed fish from my servers because they were causing lag. This left the penguins untameable. By popular demand, now you can once again tame the penguins - with desktops, laptops, and servers! :D
