[Server] Blocky Survival: The unique server

by BillyS » Thu Jul 05, 2018 20:51

Most minetest servers have a lot in common. In most of them, spawn is located in a nice grassy field. There are some animals, some monsters, and lots of blocks. The more powerful servers may even sport the famous pipeworks / mesecons / technic combo.

Ok, that's great. Now about Blocky Survival ...

Blocky Survival is, in fact, quite different then the servers described above. While it does have some things in common, such as a protection mod and animals, it is quite unique. It uses a somewhat modified version of the little-known modpack called "TechPack" in conjunction with another little-known mod with the name "terumet" instead of the aforementioned pipeworks / mesecons / technic combo. While this isn't as feature-rich, it allows basic to advanced automation with nearly zero lag!

The server's mapgen is the weird but fascinating "valleys", which produces everything from grassy slopes crisscrossed by rivers to mountain ranges towering far above the clouds. Spawn is located in a giant cave some 40 nodes below the surface, and beautifully light by mese lamps.

It has no monsters except for in the nether, where an army of them guards the mysterious "Nether Heart Ore", which, after being processed, is capable of reviving a player.

How busy is it?

At this moment, there are 5 players on it, and there has never been more then 20. The average, according to the server list, is around 6. The server is newly founded, so join quick and grab area around spawn while you still can!

Who's in charge?

The server admin is myself, BillyS.
My faithful co-admins are luk3yx, xerox123, and A_Hamilton (aka Mr_Pardison)
There is currently only one moderator: Ruslan1
Blocky Survival is hosted by DI3HARD

Sounds great. Got any pictures?

Here is a picture above spawn. Spawn is located directly below the small building with the tan walls in the top right of the photo.

Here is a picture of a small village started by players.

Here are a couple pictures of the inside of spawn.

Here is a picture of the nether.

And here, finally, is a picture of me getting slaughtered by monsters after trying to steal a Nether Heart Ore.

What mods exactly does it have?
The full list of mods (as well as their code) can be found at https://github.com/Billy-S/blockysurvival

I'm sold. How do I join?

The server URL is mt.packets4hire.com on port 30005
I hope to see you there!

One thing I forgot to mention: For those of you who use IRC, you can join the server's IRC!
If you use xeroxIRC, the channel is #BlockySurvival
If you use freenode, it's ##BlockySurvival

Nothing to declare

For the ones reading this, expect a new minetest game soon ;-)

Also, Sires is not pronouncied like Siri, it's from Sir, use he not she(also not it, I'm not a thing :P).

Haven’t tried this yet but I applaud you for stepping out of the all too common ”tech stack” comfort zone (techpack instead of technic/mesecons/pipework).

No, as far as I know only players can use nether portals

btw, someone placed lava above the spawn so now it's flooded with lava...

Yeah, thanks for telling me. I fixed that a while ago. :)

Alright, who wants pipeworks? I've had several requests for that to be installed, so I set up a poll.

Tubelib is what makes the server a bit unique on the list. I'd also like to keep this mod instead of having to deal with a bunch of new unknown nodes.

Hi, for some odd reason loading stucks at 98% the first time and rest of the times stuck at 21%, if I delete cache folder it loads up until 98% and gets stuck again... using 0.4.17.1 pc version.

Cheers \o

The server now has a website at https://mt.packets4hire.com/! It is still in development, but is quite promising. It also features a automatically-updating server map. The map may take a while to load, so if you just see a grey area please be patient! (For those who just want to see the map, it is here: https://mt.packets4hire.com/index.php/map/)
