You should still be able to interact with your protected areas as long as you use the same log-in name and password that those areas are protected to. The player file only contains your last position and whatever you were carrying at the time.

Very, very, very annoying...



Last night I ran clearobjects on the server and vacuumed the sqlite files. Hopefully that will bust some of the lag.

Maintenance Time!
(...where did I put the duct tape?)

The server will be shutdown for several hours after the nightly backup is done.


UPDATE
2014_02_17 - Maintenance done

This weekend's update to the VPS server broke something. Only Orby has the access to fix the website, webchat, wiki, and forums. I've sent an email to Orby and hopefully he will be able to get them working again in the near future.

Until then the backups aren't available for download.

Ok.

By the way, I see the title "Featured Project: Brian's "Sky City" above the picture of Sky City in the first post. It's not just the project of Brian (founder). It's just called "Sky City".

If I do the accounts, I've probably put more blocks than Brian himself (concrete floors, Sky Castle, the bricks walls of the main part, lighting and others several details). I also created new things and invested tens of thousands dollars for this project.

So, a little recognition about me is important. Thank you.

P.S.: ubuntuyou have filled the basin too.

Good news!

The nightly backups are accessible again: http://www.linuxgaming.us/minetest_backups/

Hello.

Some suggestions of mods that I tested, approved by their qualities, and who might be useful without increase the lag of server.

  • Coloured Glass. Simply esthetical and have just a basic range of choice.
  • Doors. Add some differents doors and trapdoor (the most interesting thing for me).
  • More Trees. A reference for me. Some vegetal diversity would be nice ;)
  • Fake Fire. Simply esthetical for fireplaces.
  • Memorandum. For some of these important reasons.
  • Inbox. Very useful in conjuction with Memorandum mod.
  • Computers. Purely for decoration. Nice design.
  • Beds. Nice design by BlockMen. It must remove the sleep/wake function in a server...
  • Rent apartments. No comment.
  • Chat Plus. Very useful when the scrolling of messages is too fast, or in presence of trolls, or just leave messages to offline players. Monitor this mod relative to the future improvements...
  • Simple check points. Simply useful.

Regards,
JP

Future Maintenance Notice

From now on, once every two months, the player files of players who have not logged in within the prior 60 days will be deleted.

Player files contain the inventory and the location of the player when they last logged out.

If your player file is deleted you will still be able to access your protected stuff; it's just your inventory will be wiped-out and you will spawn at the spawnpoint just like a new player.

It is highly recommneded that, if you plan to not log into our server again for a long time, you place all of your inventory and bag contents into locked_chests and write down the coords to where those chests are located before logging off.

The reason we are going to start doing this is because of the many, many thousands of unused player files that build-up over time cause lag.

As it is designed now, Minetest loads all of these unused files everytime and they just sit there taking up resources. Hopefully in the future the Minetest developers will change it so Minetest only loads the player's file when the player logs in. Till then, in order to keep the server running as best we can, the old, unused player files will be deleted.

Spent some hours on this server yesterday, first open Minetest server I ever visited - and I really like it!

First I was stuck, had to download the recommended client by sfan5 since my version of 0.4.9 kept flooding me with draw_hotbar(): mainlist == NULL - errors.
Then I was stuck again....watching...just watching...wow! You all did (and still do) a great job there!
Spawntown killed my client twice (std bad alloc - notes to self: get rid of XP, get more RAM) but then everything was fine. The people I met there are friendly, considerate and helpful. Big PROs are the simple yet effective trading system, markers (yeah [Markers] <3) and the extended inventory.

Suggestions:
1. needs teleport mod since there are so many points of interest.

2. generally I like the ambience mod but those cave bats keep freaking me out :D. Remove them, please? Or at least make them less frequently. I know they already arent as frequent as in the full version but still....


This server is fun, and I recommend it to anyone who focuses on building but finds creative to be too boring/easy!
Thank you for running and maintaining it!

PS: Could someone please set this skin up for me: http://i.imgur.com/3ssN72S.png Thanks in advance!

Howdy, klappspaten ;)

We're glad you like our server. :)



Bugs
The draw_hot bar-NULL error is worrisome at first but it's harmless and only lasts a moment... at least on Linux. I haven't played a Windows build of Minetest for a couple months. The bad allocation error, on the other hand, has been a long standing nuisance on Windows builds of Minetest.

Minetest is still in buggy, beta stage but it has come along way over the years and these things will eventually get worked out.



Teleport Mod
A teleport system is on the ToDo list for the server. The top candidates at the moment are Sokomines 'Travelnet' mod and Pitriss's 'Multi-Spawn' mod.



Bat Sounds
The bat sounds were intended to be a 'freak-out' factor. A few other players have commented about this so, if I can, I'll turn down the bat sound volume to where it is more of a background, environment sound.



Skin Uploaded
The skin you posted a link for has been uploaded to the server and will take effect after the next restart (usually after the nightly backup).

Howdy, pizza2232 ;)

Unfortunately server crashes are common.

We have an auto-restart script installed that checks once every 30 minutes and it tries to restart to the server. Usually it works but there are some crashes that it can't recover from. Those kind of crashes need code editing to fix.

I checked the server and it was up and running when I logged in.

Thanks for letting us know. ;)
