A status update and another preview video of the new version are now available!

    try using the GPS plugin and when you get where you want use /sethome and /home to use or use yahgiggle's area protection plugin and and seting a home point that way. :) there are a cuple others that will do similar.

    you can also set the Bird with a blueprint, if made out of pnb, and using the positioning commands to set it in the air. Also you can place a board and set a poster in place then remove the board to get a walk through curtain. Is good for hiding secret passages.

    It would be nice if we had a cuple sets of double doors. That way we could have them both open out or in, rather then turning 1 door around and setting the second door in the open position, like it were closed so that when you closed the door it swings to the open position. It is difficult to align the doors as it is and I believe you need blueprints to do it.

    I believe that you will have to hit L again if you take the helm off and put it back on. The only time it stays on is if you are an admin and then it does not need the helm at all. Normal players have to use the helm. L is just the on off switch. :)

    I have found that as long as steam has been installed on both computers, you can install the steam engine and all your games on an external hard drive and switch the drive between the different computers. just make a shortcut to the steam.exe and you should be able to start in offline mode unless you hit try again. if you hit try again it will go to the sign in page and not stop till it gets internet access. As long as you sign in in offline mode you should have no ploblems. Some games can be copied into the steamapps/common/game file without internet access and others will require internet till the game has been updated and installed properly. you have to just try or you can do a game backup from a comp withh access then restore it to your offline build. I can not guarantee this will work but most of the time it does for me. Hope this helps. This is on windows of course. I haven't tried it with linux yet. If you do like me and install on an external HDD, to add games or update the system and games, just plug the drive into a comp with net access that steam has been installed on and update, then swicth the drive back to the other comp. Important, the reason for installing steam on both comps is to get the registry entries for steam so it will run properly. Once you have that, you can run any other build of steam on that comp from any drive hooked to that comp. You can delete the original steam file system created when you install steam and just run off the build on the external drive. You may run into needing the net for installing registry entries that the games are reliant on but I have found most will work.

    Well I see no Linux64 folder in the server so this means I need to install the server from steamcmd. I just copied the server over from windows.also what file are the environmental variables kept in? If what is to be amended is in the Linux_startscript.sh, this is what is there.


    #!/bin/bash


    cd $(pwd)

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$(pwd)/linux64:$(pwd):$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"


    if [ ! -x "`which java`" ]; then echo "You have to install java first!"; exit 1; fi


    MEMORY=$(grep -i 'server_memory' server.properties | tr -d '\n\r' | cut -f2 -d'=')

    if [ -z "$MEMORY" ]; then

    echo "${txtred}No server_memory set. Server starts with 1024mb memory${txtreset}"

    MEMORY=1024

    fi

    if ! [[ $MEMORY =~ ^[0-9]+$ ]]; then

    echo "${txtred}The property 'server_memory' is not numeric${txtreset}"

    exit 1;

    fi


    java -Xmx${MEMORY}m -Xms$(($MEMORY/2))m -jar server.jar


    I use this command to start the server.


    java -Xmx8G -Xms4G -jar server.jar +maxplayers=4 +servername=Rosalia Test


    I am a moderate linux user so please forgive my inability.


    Ok, I installed the server with steamcmd and the linux64 folder is now there. What file do I have to append to fix this?

    I have set up a standalone server on my debian 9 build. It seems to want to start but I get an error right at the end and the server shuts down. I disabled all plugins and it still happens.
    Here is the log.


    errorlog_1592429866927.log


    I am setting it up to run on hamachi so no issue with opening ports. I don't believe I have a firewall, atleast I never installed ufw and there is no response from any of it's commands. I am in a root terminal. not loged in as root it keeps saying


    2020/06/17 03:59 PM: Steam Server Connect failed... (NoConnection)

    till I make the server shut down


    on restart of server as non su - it does the same as it did as when signed in as root user.

    I always though it would be cool if people could set their own claim areas to pvp or not. so if someone wanted to make a dungeon or fighting arena (area) they could then set their claim to pvp. Those that dont like pvp can just leave their claim areas set for nonpvp. Of course you would need to have an indicator on the screen telling you that you just walked into a pvp area.

    I second this completely. I would want my server to be pve except for small arena areas that challenges can be settled in.

    there is a cooking timer plugin, that still works, to help with the cooking times.


    Well the forum page does not seem to be available any more. I think I still have a working copy available. I don't think the author will mind so contact me by PM if you are interested.

    you need to make a sub folder named trails to put the .jar file from the zip file into, in the plugins folder. Then it should work. Be warned that this can make a mess of the terrain on your server. It likes to leave mud puddles all over. Last I knew it still worked.

    the lua versions of everything are planned to be discontinued soon although no real date has been set. This was planned even before they decided to change to unity. I am not shure if they plan to use lua for a short while in unity but it still works on the version of the game we have now. I do remember that miwarre was supposed to have made it so both lua and java versions could be ran at the same time for testing purposes. I am not shure when that happened though. When the unity version comes out they will be supporting java plugins but some may stop working and be in need of updating. Most plugins should still work but don't quote me on that :P Also, the unity version is supposed to have it's own simple version of area protection when it comes out.

    The lua area protection is ment for use by admins. The java area protection has the ability to go auto self administrated I believe as well as being serviced just by an admin if I remember correctly. I never tested the auto admin feature but I seem to remember it being mentioned at 1 time.

    this is in the first post of the link to the lua script areaprotection 3.0 I posted above and here it is again.


    [Script]Area Protection 3.0 NEW


    "/areatp will teleport you to the given area by ID, make sure that you are flying when you use this!!!"


    New codes are

    /selectarea = select the area to protect this now works for non admins too

    /makemyarea areaname = the area name the Owner wants for his new area, note he must be inside his area for this to work and his area cannot overlap other areas this code auto adds the maker as the owner on making the area

    /addownertoarea Owner username = adding new owners to areas, so a Owner can add another user as a Owner and that owner has all the same rights, note its most likey best to add them as a Friend as Owners can remove there own areas oO maybe not good if they remove your area oO

    /removearea = now owners can remove there own area or areas inside there own area.

    /addshoppertoarea Shopper username = now a owner can add a user to a area he or she owns as a shopper, shoppers cant grief they can only take from chests

    /addlockouttoarea Lockout username = Owners can now ban a player who bugs them from there own area adding them as a Lockout it stops them from even been able to enter the area

    /addminertoarea Miner username = this can be used to make a mining area inside an area add the player as a Miner and thay cant grief buildings but they can dig the ground





    /showareas to visualize all existing areas

    /hideareas to hide all visualized areas

    /arealist lists all the areas defined

    /areatp2 will teleport you to the given area by name, make sure that you are flying when you use this!!!


    /areatp will teleport you to the given area by ID, make sure that you are flying when you use this!!!


    /showareainfo to show all members of an area with their groups

    /addplayertoarea to add a player to the provided group inside the area you currently are

    /removeplayerfromarea to unregister a player from the area you're standing in

    /selectarea to visualize all existing areas

    /createarea to save the area you have defined previously

    /removearea to delete the area you're currently inside

    /reloadgroups to reload all group propertyfiles

    /showareaplayerrights to show all members of an area with their rights

    /cleanuparea to remove all objects, constructions, vegetations and blocks from an area

    /fillarea to fill up an area with terrain or air

    the /tp number command was used by the lua area protection 3.0 script I believe. That might be what you are looking for. There is a java plugin that was being made to replace it that had a gui interface for teleporting to the areas. either 1 of these should do what you want.


    [Plug-in] Area Protection


    I don't believe this is supported rt now but it was almost ready to use but might have a few bugs in it. Was never finished being tested. It seemed to be more secure then the lua version and the lua data base could be converted to the java system on first run. It also fixed some of the problems with the old lua area protection. Hope this helps.


    [Script]Area Protection 3.0 NEW


    here is the old lua area protection.

    If your mounts get stuck down a hole, you can get them out by staying mounted and then teleporting home or wherever also. Portals are another handy way to get around your server. It is another plugin you can download and install. just look through the plugin section and you will find all sorts of cool stuff.
