The world is live and here to stay! Thankfully my property stayed untouched from the server saving bug. I noticed 709's being wiped out and back to the base seed. I also saw it did a scheduled backup and all looked well for it at the 1450 backup. So I do hope this was just an oddity.

So if you were wondering about the lighting bug:


Notice the blackness in the block NEXT to the torch. After I took this shot, that cow walked through the shadows and turned the same blackness it would in night without torches. Oh well.

I'm pretty sure this is the same bug that plagued the top of the hotel/post office with hostiles back in Cactuar. I think it was introduced with the "anvil" chunk format that broke up the vertical column chunks into shallower sections.

Thanks for kicking off the new thread, turtle. I'll update the sticky thread and other "readme" pages later tonight with the correct server information.

Now that we're back on the "vanilla" Minecraft, I'm able to use Bukkit as the back-end server. This means that we once again have access to a bunch of neat commands that are offered by various Bukkit plugins.

The next time you're online, check out /help to see a list of some commands. Most notably, I've installed the Essentials plugin (see command reference) that provides some interesting commands like:
  • /back takes you back to where you died so you can try to fetch your loot
  • /afk toggles the AFK display (but it doesn't act like you're asleep like the other AFK we used to have)
  • /getpos tells you where you or another player is
  • /time tells you the in-world time; handy so you don't have to keep a watch/clock around while mining
  • /mail allows you to send messages to players even if they're offline
  • /sethome and /home allow you to set a home for warping and go to it (note: I haven't tested this)

There are a lot more cheat commands that Essentials offers that I'll be turning off once I get proper permissions set up on the server. We're running a pretty basic setup right now just so I could get things started. Please be a good citizen and try to resist the temptation to cheat until I get them locked down.

Essentials also includes a basic set of economy commands that creates an in-game currency. For any item, you can try /worth to see how much the server thinks it's worth. You can use /balance to see how much your bank account has. When you /sell an item, the server takes it from you and deposits the appropriate amount of money into your bank account. Your bank account stays around even when you die and respawn. Once you have money in your account, you can /pay another player for goods, services, etc. Another use of the economy that I haven't yet tinkered with is paid server services. For instance, maybe we enable arbitrary warping, but you have to pay something like a $10 toll each time you warp? Or maybe enable a command to repair your current tool and charge $50 per use? I'll think about ways to enable the economy commands that might make things interesting.

So, I tried this out last night on my local test server, and it's not as bad as you might guess! When I used /back after stepping into a lava pool, it put me back *outside* of the pool just before where I stepped in. My stuff was gone, of course, but I was able to continue wandering around.

I found a swamp shack while I was out adventuring earlier today. I did post coordinates on a sign so we can all find it again after the map updates later this evening.

Now that I've had some time to experiment and configure, lets talk Bukkit commands!

I've installed a few plugins to keep things interesting. Just as before, I may add more if I find some that I think we'd enjoy. Maybe we'll add warping or multiple worlds. We'll see. Here's a summary of what we have today:
  • Essentials (Core) is a mixed bag of utility commands.
    • /hat lets you wear a fancy hat.
    • /time gives you the in-game world time so you don't have to carry a watch.
    • /afk toggles your AFK display. Unfortunately, this does not simulate being in bed like it used to.
    • /compass tells you which way you're facing.
    • /depth tells you how deep you are in the world.
    • /getpos tells you where you are in the world.
    • /help lists the commands available to you.
    • /mail lets you send and read mail. You can send messages to people offline using mail.
    • /msg <player> <message> (or /tell, /m, /t, or /whisper) sends a private message to another player.
    • /r <message> (or /reply) replies to the last person who sent you a private message.
    • /nick <name> lets you give yourself a nickname. Nicknames are always preceded by ~ when displayed.
    • /realname <nickname> lets you see the real name of someone from their nickname.
    • /suicide kills you.
    • /back warps you back to where you last died. Good for fetching your loot or exacting vengeance on your killer.
  • Essentials (Economy) provides a basic economy if we want to have one. We can also set up ways to *buy* items from the server (think rarities like glowstone or quartz), but we'll deal with that later.
    • /balance or /bal shows your server-wide bank account balance.
    • /worth shows how much the item in your hand is worth if you were to sell it to the server.
    • /sell <item> <amount> sells items from your inventory back to the server for a cash deposit into your account.
    • /repair repairs the item in your hand in exchange for a flat $100 (regardless of item type or damage amount) from your bank account.
  • LWC lets you protect your things so no one else can go through them. Protected chests and doors have the added benefit of being indestructible by anyone but you.
    • /cprivate locks a chest or door so only you can open it.
    • /cpassword <password> sets a password lock on a chest or door that must be entered to open it.
    • /cpublic sets a permission on a chest or door so anyone can open it and no one can use /cprivate or /cpassword on it, effectively identifying it as a shared/community resource
    • /cremove removes one of the above protection types if you have access to it.
    • /climits shows you how many protections you have left.
  • WorldEdit has a bunch of creative-style commands, but I'm only exposing these two to repair damage.
    • /fixwater <radius> fixes water flows in the radius around you. Good for patching surface currents over deep water.
    • /fixlava <radius> fixes lava flows the same way.

Note: the fixlava and fixwater commands are also very useful in making pools of the liquids from a single source... (which in a way is infinite fuel)...

The lesson learned tonight is that if you try to impersonate an admin, you may turn into a brony.

(Also, Atariboy and sassyreese are OwenReese's dad and mom respectively.)

Owen said you're a big meanie, brad, and if he could, he'd lead a hundred creepers to your house. He kids, of course. He knows what happens when he breaks stuff.

So- what' the consensus? I've kinda let him do his own thing- I know he's shading Spec pretty closely, but is he behaving himself and being a "fine guy" and not a "mad guy"?

He's kinda needy, but otherwise he's behaving and being a "fine guy". He certainly doesn't appear to be breaking anything, at least not deliberately! (cue creeper hiss)

Oh yeah, as an FYI the default profile on the new launcher auto updates.

If you go to "edit profile" you can select from a pull down menu to release 1.6.1.

Yep, this is going to be required for a few days until Bukkit updates. No real loss. AFAICT, 1.6.2 is mostly minor bug fixes.

I'll post when we're ready to go to 1.6.2.

For some reason I wasn't able to get on this morning. The server is up, but it won't let me connect for some reason. I'm off to work now but did notice this. I tried a MC restart too, but it did nothing other than add some log entries.

Might want to tell him to stop building tard towers noob towers everywhere. If he logs out on top of one of those, he may fall to his death because I'm nuking them on sight.

Yep- his mom was yelling at him about that last night. I'll give him a pick and send him off to do the right thing. I sent him on a wood harvesting errand last night to keep him busy.
