VanessaE's Creative Server
daconcepts.com, port 30000IRC: Freenode channel #ve-minetest-servers
Admins: VanessaE, ShadowNinja, kaeza, cheapie, bulldog1 (and others as needed)
Please try my Creative Building server also, for lower-end machines: daconcepts.com 30008
This server runs in Creative mode with minetest_game and my Dreambuilder modpack: everything you probably will ever want to build with, plenty of tools to get the job done, and no limits on the materials you can use!
To get an idea of most of the server's content, you may wish to take a look at my Dreambuilder forum topic.
For detailed statistics regarding the performance of the server hardware, see http://daconcepts.com/vanessa/hobbies/m ... stats.html
This server shuts down briefly for backups at 5:00 am US Eastern time (11:00 am CET).
This server runs Minetest from the official Github repository, and requires version 5.4.0 or newer.
To connect and play, you will need a reasonably good PC. A dual core 2 GHz CPU (or faster) with 2 GB of RAM and any GPU less than 10 years old should do. Mobile devices are not recommended.
This server has an extra mod which disallows entirely-numeric, "Guest123456", gibberish, and other crap usernames. Please choose a proper username when you sign on.

This server runs in creative mode. Damage, PvP, fire, TNT and bones are disabled. Griefing absolutely will not be tolerated, and will result in rollback and ban if confirmed. This server runs the newplayer-rules mod, so to get interact, read the rules and plug the keyword contained therein into the space provided for it in the form.
Please do not ask to be a moderator or admin, or for additional privileges. Such requests will be denied. We are not looking for more staff at this time.
This server runs cheapie's player_textures mod, so if you have a specific Minetest or Minecraft skin, point me to it via this forum topic or catch me on IRC, and I will install it. Such changes will affect both this server and my Survival server. If it's a Minecraft 1.8 skin (e.g. 64x64 pixels), it will be cropped to 1.0 format, so please choose skins that won't lose too much detail.
Building on the server
You can build anything you want, anywhere you want, with the following guidelines: Near the spawn, please stick to serious, high-class structures only please. Pixel art and generally-artsy stuff should be kept away from the spawn.
If someone else has built in an area you wanted to use, do not build into or immediately above those structures, period! Even if the building looks vacant, don't touch it - there are no "abandoned" buildings here. Griefing any part of any structure is strictly forbidden.
Please keep your structures near a main road, but do not build right on the end of the road (e.g. if extending the road would go through your structure); if this isn't practical, or there is no road yet, please build one, or build a spur off an existing road somewhere and then build alongside that. Try to keep your roads straight and try make them run out past your structure so others can build further. Sky structures are welcome, but please build them up high enough so as not to obscure or cast shadows on anything below.
And please - REPLANT YOUR TREES! (Preferably with the same type as that which you cut down).
See the forum topic for ShadowNinja's Advanced Area Protection Mod for instructions. The short version: to mark the area you want to claim, dig a few meters down in one corner of the area, and do . Then go to the opposite corner, fly up above the area, and do . Then do to actually claim the area.
If the area is too big, request privilege from one of the admins, or just have them protect the area for you.
Also, there are protection blocks you can craft and place, which protect a fixed radius around the block. Placing the block automatically protects the area, and digging it removes the protection. Shift-digging will delete the protection block (i.e. you don't get it back), but will leave the area protected.
This server is primarily English-speaking.
Of course there are limited exceptions, for players who just can't speak English at all.
Freedom of speech is paramount here, but I do have some rules about it: 1. Don't harass anyone. 2. Hate speech, harrassment, etc. are absolutely not tolerated. 3. Leave your religion in your house of worship - this applies equally to in-game names as to your speech. 4. This server is not the ghetto, so take the rap-video trash-talk somewhere else.
This server runs ShadowNinja's "areas" mod, xban, and future_ban. Griefing absolutely will NOT be tolerated and will result in loss of build privileges and a ban if confirmed.
