Maintenance Day

Post by Admin on Tue Jan 31, 2012 1:03 am

On Sunday 5th February I will be taking the server offline for most of the day. This is so we can do some much needed maintenance on the server. Some if not all the plugins we have installed are outdated, the permissions we have set up are not adequate and maps warps need to be reset. On Sunday I plan to do all the updates, sort the errors, correct the permissions, make the server stable, add some more plugins and an owner would like to reward those most trusted with a new ranking system (no need to apply as we know who you are).

What you will find will happen on Sunday is that the server will be up and down, this will happen with no notice and although I will be online I will not be communicating until its done so please don’t ask me or the owners for help. I do apologies for this downtime but trust me when I say it is needed and the server will be better for it, we are doing it for you.

I do hope that many of you read this post and reply to it with any problems you have had and also any plugins you would like installed or anyway we can make the server more entertaining for you to play on.

Thx,

add borders to faction world.

not sure what would be an adequate size for faction world but id say 4000x4000

meaning a person can go to -4000x -4000z and go to 4000x 4000z and go to -4000x 4000z and im sure you get the idea. also, if possible, add a cool down time to teleport, id say 5 seconds and they can't move while the seconds are counting...

and also

here's one that i just thought of and im not sure if it'd be a good idea or not


but a skylands faction world with boats that can fly. the plugin atty uses. not sure what its called. but miniature air battles might be interesting but at the same time... im not sure how skylands may be. whether itll be more trouble than fun for the users. but thats just a thought, ... a spur of the moment type of thing. it may seem cool now but it might prove disasterous when installed so think heavily on it before installing.

as for the borders, i think that should be added to new faction map =)

Thank you for the suggestions, please keep them coming.
Please note due to availability this will now take place on Saturday 4th February. I will be whitelisting the whitelist to stop players who don’t read the forums coming on and trying to play while we are fixing things. We will try to start early ish as the main bulk of players are in the states and come on in the evening and I hope by that time we will be finished.

Jr consider the boarders done, I like this idea and hopefully everyone else will agree. I can and will add the teleport cool down.

The skypirates sounds interesting and I know Pandorians have been eager for some kind of flying ability I will look into this, ideally see it actually being used on Attys server.

Sorry I have not been on your server before Atty. I am not sure what kind of set up you have? I will try and make the effort sometime this week.
Thank you for offering your server during this downtime I would most definitely like to take you up on this offer and maybe we can chat a little more about setting something up on a more permanent basis? I have a few ideas to run by you.

Any mod that has the word tnt in it can not be good and seeing as this is the only word for the mod you suggested hasan I think I will have to say no. If you were actually serious about this then please let me know exactly why you think it will be good for our server.

I mentioned the whitelisting above and the work that we need to do is a fair amount but it can be done a lot quicker if I can get some volunteers : ) If you think you can help out then please let me know it will be very boring for you but should not take up to much of your time and will be very helpful to me.

Volunteers to do:-
Faction world – copy the church, set the boarders, region’ing, safe guard the church.
Permissions – Go through each rank over and over to make sure the permissions are set correctly.
Plugins – Test the new plugins we will install to make sure they are functioning correctly.
Research – Google plugins, permission nodes & error messages.


Thx guys,

Well I was being serious about the tnt mod and I was only suggesting it for factions. I also have two more suggestions for factions 1.elemental arrows and two elemental creepers and like I said these are faction only plugins.

I would also like to help on saturday as testing out plugins and checking if they work.

How I see it working is like this

The main bulk of the work will happen behind the scenes, the upgrade and installation of plugins and the modification of permissions files. Kierito will be taking lead with me guiding him through the process once he feels comfortable that everything is looking ok we will pop onto Atty’s server and bring in the troops (atty, jr, hasan). If atty & jr could tackle importing the worlds and preparing the faction world by copying the church, fixing walls, importing the pvp arena etc. Hasan we will use you by demoting you to guest and getting you to try all commands going through each rank to find any permissions problems and testing the new plugins. The rest of the stuff we will just see how it goes, as for temp passwords for console & ftp this wont work as you can only have one user at a time on console and ftp would become a mess without good control of who is modifying what.
Ben I know you mentioned you might have some time free on Saturday and although I have not included you above I it would be great to see you and I know your help will make this be so much easier but at the same time please don’t feel you have to.

Thx atty any help would be great, although from the list you placed the only node problem i have would be with sky pirates but that would be because i have not even looked at it yet.
I will email you the permissions files if you like (we have 4 dif files for dif worlds) our set up is not as straight foward as other servers just to make things extra confusing lol.

Out of all that is planned and the work that will go on the only thing that is most important that i have no idea on how to fix would be

Do not allow experience points to be transferred between worlds.
Do not remove enchantment if player leaves the world that it was created on.

If anyone can think of a way to solve this problem then please say Smile

I would like to quickly shout out to Atty for all the work he did in helping getting the server up and running. The majority of the work that was planned has been completed ( see page 1 ) and the bits that were not complete are considered minor.

We do have a few tweaks and bugs (permissions mainly) so if you do notice anything please make sure Atty or I are aware and we will try to fix it when we can.

this is not a bug as i could find the best suggestion is put all items in a chest before leaving a world or doing mob arena

Atty i wonder if you can test something for me if you get time as for some reason pigsaddle will not release the new bukkit build R4 and I think your server keeps updated.

This build is meant to fix the resetting of multi world warps after a server crash and fix the enchantment disappearing when going from world to world
