the server needs a rollback. the new spawn has been griefed heaps, its covered in lava and the trees in the area are all on fire. the spawns blocks have to be protected and a no build thingie put in place around the spawn.
Aye, Namkob ere', and I'd just like tah say that this server reminds me o' home lots an lots! Sure, teh burning forest followed by teh lava near the spawn pont ain't ideal, and teh 16GB o' ram doesn't seem tah ward off lag awful lots, but this place is simply gorgeous! Thinkin bout startin a town too, off in the wilderness...
Anyways, I'd say that all teh' spawn point needs is some Tough Love an' Crud, followed by a' replantin effert! It'll be ah server-wide thingy, an those always bring people tahgether!
No rollback. Spawn is always wrecked. Thats nothing new. There are never trees near spawn. Thats nothing new. Spawn blocks are protected, a greifer just broke through somehow. Lava? get a bucket, or just put a dirt block on the source block, problem solved.
Rollbacks are Bad Things, and should only be used in extreme situations. Rolling back for the damage done to spawn is like wrapping a dude in bandages for stubbing his toe.
Also, fire was semi-nerfed apperntly. If you drop a lighter it vanishes, and fire will burn the block it is set on, but will not spread. Because apperntly too much of the server was made non-pristine or some such. Yay.
No, because too much of the server was being pointlessly burned.
I get the hint that you don't agree with the changes I made. :/
I talked to Lios before I even made an changes on that scale, and he was getting tired of how people were going around the server looking for the next forest to burn just for the hell of it.
This wouldn't have even been an issue if it was small patches, but I spent too many hours putting out fires and I had the help of a plugin on my side. Other users even tried helping put out fires when I wasn't on I heard.
If players cannot handle the ability to use fire, then there's no need to have it.
People can still have their fireplaces and such. Fire still burns, it still does damage, so nothing has changed there.
Either way, so far you're the only person I have seen that's so bothered by it, while many others were very happy about it?
Anyways, made a big leap closer to a map update. Made a post about it on the minrealm forums for those who want to know more about it. :/
Someone told me that the big problem with the fires is that they were creating massive lag. In that case, the fire nerf makes perfect sense and needed to be done.
What was bugs me is that i thought fire was nerfed simply because forests were being burned down, which would of been a crappy reason to nerf it. The world will change, it will get damaged, and bad things will happen to it. If things get nerfed simply because the can be used to make the world less perfect, then you might as well nerf every item possible to save us some time.
So it wasn't the fire nerf itself that bugged me, but the reason behind it. But since i know about the lag problem now, im cool with that.
Also, the other minor annoyance was that it wasn't stated anywhere that dropping your lighter makes it vanish. That in and of itself seems pointless and comes as an annoying surprise to anyone trying to recharge their lighter. Personally, i like making fireplace torches, they look cool, but they take a ton of charges to get working right.
I'd imagine the fires would cause lag, and there's a hell of a lot of them.
As well, I'd appreciate you not trying to slander me. :smile.gif:
2010-12-11 07:00:33 [INFO] [global][cerevox] yuushi was spawning ghasts to wreck some house a day or two ago
I was actually in the middle of no where, far from anything and only did it to add some fun. No one got hurt, no damage was done. Don't go making assumptions then spreading lies. ;o Even before that I was only testing a command then someone wanted to see when I mentioned a ghast... then everyone wanted to see.
Also, don't worry we're working on some rules. :smile.gif:
