Title: Mods
Post by: Superman on July 07, 2012, 09:42:17 AM
1.3 will finally introduce a proper modding API. I'm personally a little more willing to consider the idea of mods with a proper interface, though I still really like the idea of vanilla.

The fuckhead installed some hack that completely breaks the game. It lets him fly, he doesn't take damage, and he has x-ray vision. Fucking retarded. Took the server down until I can find a mod to block it. I guess I'm shelling out the extra money for Bukkit support anyway.

Okay. Just narrowed the white list down until I can find a fix.

The fuckhead?  Maybe I should.. find out who the fuckhead is.

Well, he's 13... Sorry, I was really frustrated that this was even a thing that existed.

Apparently there are hacked clients you can get. It's a modified version of Minecraft itself. So there's not even any duping of the server. It's all client side. Apparently there are people out there that really hate Minecraft as a game, but really want to play it anyway

There's no way to actually block it with a mod, but there are tools out there that detect what looks like cheating (moving too fast, flying, finding too many diamonds at once, etc...) and kicks or bans anyone doing it.

There's also a permissions mod that I've wanted anyway. Anyone can log in and look around, but we have to whitelist them for them to be able to manipulate anything.

We did have a long talk about how shitty that is to anyone else playing on the server and about following the rules. I also pointed out that there are tons of creative servers out there if that's how he wants to play. I think I got through to him. The good news is that it breaks his character file on the server and crashes everything. So until it's updated, he can't use it anyway.

So he broke his own character?  He can't play with it on ANY server?

I'm surprised he did this.  This is exactly what Creative mode is for (minus the x-ray vision).

Worse than that, it crashes servers.

I know I was an idiot when I was 13, but I swear I wasn't as stupid as these kids today. Even compensating for the ego filter.

Hmm.  I haven't spoken with any thirteen year olds lately.  I think I have been blissfully ignorant of these supposed egos.

Not really a mod, well, specifically not a mod.

This guy took the altered vision from the pumpkin helmet and turned it into a HUD for using his bow and arrow. Amazingly clever.

So simple. Very clever. I'm starting to get Minecraft withdrawal.
