When 1.8 comes out
« on: September 03, 2011, 05:25:15 pm »
Once the new update arrives, we will be trashing the old map. It will be available for download someday. Everything will be the same, but we will be having the server mod free. Whitelist will be monitored closely, and we may remove players who no longer play. I am a security freak, and like to keep things locked up, so without bukkit, we will have no way of preventing lava, tnt, and fire spamming. Also, I will become very pissed when people ask the op for stuff, or teleports. NO MORE. Please guys. With that out of the way, lets get to the meat of this post. We will be dividing land up for people. If you would like a dedicated area, Admins will be in charge of how much land you get, size, and range and pie?!?. So if you would like to apply for land, you will need to fill out a post on the forum, yes that means you will will need to register. SMF 2.0 is way better, and hopefully the new school year will bring people here. View the board here.

This goal it to ensure that some building will not be tampered with. Important or cool ones may want to be saved, since the rules do not give any user permission to claim land. So this will ensure that a user will get his or her protected space. Now with that said, It does not mean that you can just go around destroying buildings. That is considered greifing. But if a building is overlapping your project, you may build around it, or through it. With the land protecting act  :D, you cannot do that without the users consent.  With that said, I ask you to use your best judgement when making a decision to build stuff. (This feature will not be available until the update)

On a side note, it will not be possible to build within a range of the spawn. Once the update comes out we will be rushing to play, and I want to leave a portion of the spawn untouched for my use. I plan to build a massive building around the spawn, so to prevent issues, I'm asking that we do not build within a defined range of the spawn.

Are the admins going to be spawning items for themselves?  If so, will that only be for certain projects?

Admins will be limited. I will add people as needed. Everyone will be responsible for finding crap.

Greg! I think I may have found something just for us!

iZone is a server mod that allows an admin to allocate zones, similar to lots, which can be assigned to players. These zones have "flags" added to them. These flags include:
Protection
Monster
Welcome
Farewell
Heal
PvP
Creeper
Animal
TnT
Fire
Restriction
Lightning
Snow
Drain

This is just something I found actually... seemed pretty cool (works on servers).

There was this other mod, something with Airships. That is used for very distant travel (like from AGOA to Brady's, or that town way out there). It basicly teleports you from one airship to another, pre-designated, airship.

Intresting, I'll be asking AGOA for input once we're back. Right now, I've got DNS issues to resolve, and squirrel mail. Lots of squirrel mail.

The only thing I would really want on the server (mods wise) is something that will prevent grieffing. I was thinking something that would not allow players (not admins) from breaking blocks that were placed by another player. As is, the only people that could break my stuff/blocks would be me and the admins.

Then people could grief by putting blocks in your area... right?

Im happy with white list, maybe spawn being on a platform high enough to kill those who drop.  It doesnt block flying hackers though (never seen any hackers myself before though).  Im not real familiar with the new spawn rules.. when I played originally beds hadnt been made yet, and it was just after they implemented them that I quit for a while.

Being on a platform would give them time to say hello, what are the rules, etc etc

From what I hear, notch is implementing some stuff that will allow server admins to deny mods. We'll see if it actually works. I kind of wish, he would create more tools for the server admin, that makes managing easier.

Well, Denovin, to the grieffing by placing blocks.... you could just have areas like the spawn. Normal players can't break/place/interact (with) the blocks in that are.
