    No, but I'll put that on there. Alright, took that off the banned list then.

    You have TekkitRestrict installed which stops the Automatic crafting table mkII dupe from working. If other items are bypassing protections, you should look into the EEPatch as well as Taeir's fix pack to fix those.

    rcmaehl got a reaction from disconsented in [All Modpacks] Rarely Enabled Useful Commands   
    I've been playing Minecraft since the beginning of Alpha and Multiplayer Minecraft since it came out. Since the beginning of the essentials plugin, many server owners haven't enable useful commands that can only benefit them and their players. To help both server admins and players, I've made a list below of some of the most useful of the commands, what they do, and the permissions for them.
     
    /ignore
     
    Fixes: _____ is spamming me with PMs!
    Permission: essentials.ignore
    Description: Ignores a player.
    Alternative: Hire more admins to deal with annoying players.
    Additional Notes: Give your admins essentials.chat.ignoreexempt to make sure players don't ignore them.
     
    /itemdb
     
    Fixes: What's the item id for _____?
    Permission: essentials.itemdb
    Description: Search for the id of an item by name. Additionally, looks up the data (item ids, data value, and durability) of the item currently held if no name is provided.
    Alternative: Force players to install and use Forge w/ NEI or TMI.
     
     
    /recipe
     
    Fixes: How do I craft ______?
    Permission: essentials.recipe
    Description: Displays information on how to craft an item.
    Alternative: Force players to install and use Forge w/ NEI.
     
     
    /seen
     
    Fixes: Has anyone seen _____? Is _____ banned?
    Permission: essentials.seen (for bans: essentials.seen.banreason)
    Description: Displays the last time the user was online, and ban reason if banned (only if player has .banreason perms)
    Alternative: Log all your bans in a public place.
    Additional Notes: Do NOT give essentials.seen.* or players will be able to search and see IPs.
     
     
    /time
     
    Fixes: Is it day outside?, What time is it?
    Permission: essentials.time
    Description: Displays the current time in the current world.
    Alternative: Give out free clocks in a kit.
    Additional Notes: Do NOT give essentials.time.* or essentials.time.set as these two nodes would allow players to set the time.
     
     
    /tptoggle
     
    Fixes: _____ is spamming me with TPs!
    Permission: essentials.tptoggle
    Description: Allows players to ignore TPs.
    Alternative: Hire more admins to deal with the annoying players.
    Additional Notes: Give you admins essentials.tpo to allow them to bypass this toggle.

    rcmaehl got a reaction from klisman in Tips for Running a Tekkit Classic Server   
    Background:

    Back in late 2013 and early 2014, I had been running a Tekkit Classic Anarchy Server with an average of 10+ players on at any time and No Banned Items. I was able to maintain near 99% uptime with 18+ TPS on this server. The uptime and TPS were done by various configuration file changes as well as various plugins. The no banned items was done by various patches and disabling either part of, or the entirety of, the item/block instead of banning the whole block/item. Some of what I've done as well as others is below.

    Disclaimer:

    I will offer as much support as I can for your issues with this pack, however, I am not responsible if you server fails to maintain 99% to 100% uptime or is not to your satisfaction. A great server requires hours of configuration tweaking to fit your hardware, and your players, the best.

    Configuration File Changes:

    Note: Anything marked with '*' is optional and can be blocked with a plugin instead, however more than a half of these can reduce server load that a plugin can't.
    /buildcraft/config/AdditionalPipes.cfg: * Change TeleportTether.Enabled=true to TeleportTether.Enabled=false This disables one of the chunk loading blocks that can cause your server to lag. WARNING: You must set this before you ever create your world file or you may corrupt player inventories and your world. * Change TeleportTether.id=179 to TeleportTether.id=0 This disables one of the chunk loading blocks that can cause your server to lag.

Server Player Counts:
     
    This is something I see a lot of people having issues with.They start a server, it's popular for a bit, then it basically withers and dies. The main reason for this is that the server owner doesn't advertise, either at all or enough, after their first post. If you want players, you must actively advertise on as many means as possible. A few places to advertise are MinecraftForums, TekkitServerList, PlanetMinecraft, MineStatus, Facebook, and even Craigslist.
     
    Server Staff:

    This is really a tough topic. The simplest way is to check their knowledge of tekkit without them knowing. TP to their base. Any overflowing pipes? They shouldn't be staff. Any lag machines (cobble farms, sugarcane farms, anything that's left running 24/7)? They shouldn't be staff. After they pass this, I recommend doing some background checking. Don't trust the player. Google their IGN and "minecraft" [e.g. "rcmaehl minecraft"], check for bans (actually do a thorough search, I usually spend upwards of 30 minutes searching backgrounds on player). If they have too many bans, or even no minecraft history whatsoever, they shouldn't be staff. Moving on, check for spelling and grammar. A good staff member will be able to communicate with other players well and clearly. If the players can't understand the staff member, they'll easily get frustrated. Finally, use your common sense. Does the player easily get frustrated/upset, cuss at people, or verbally attack (insult) people? If so, they shouldn't be staff. A good staff member should be able to deal with players and issues without easily being emotionally compromised.

    So... Checklist:
    No overflowing pipes No lag machines Has a minecraft history of at least 4+ google pages Has no bans Can speak proper English or whatever the Primary language of your server is Does not get easily frustrated or upset in a manner that causes them to cuss at people or verbally attack people. Patches and Plugins:

    If you are sane you install all of these plugins and patches to your server. WARNING: Be sure to install the CB 1.2.5 Version of plugins. If there is not a CB 1.2.5 Version, install the closest version to 1.2.5.
    Patches: EE Patch Version: 2.0 Fixes EE bypassing protections Use with TekkitRestrict for great configuration options for basically each and every exploitable and griefing item in EE ComputerCraft, NEI, TubeStuff, WeaponMod, IC2, MFFS, and Wireless Redstone Patch Version: 0.6 Fixes Death.weapon Fixes Gamemode Hacks Fixes ComputerCraft Crash Fixes PVP bypass in Worldguard Other Various Fixes Plugins: BanMePlease AutoBans GM hackers if you don't patch NEI CapsBlock Removes TEXT LIKE THIS ZOMG CAPS!!!111!

TekkitRestrict contains the fix as of 1.20 Dev 2, and using them both could cause items to be duped. Various Extras:
    Clean up your worlds often Remove the builds of players that haven't been online for a very long time Look into Minecraft RemoteToolkit Adds Auto-Save options Adds Auto-Restart options Adds Auto-Restart on error options Adds Auto-Restart on crash options Adds Telnet Console, Great for monitoring and running your server from a phone or mobile device Have your Tekkit Classic Server restart every 12 hours Can be more often for even less lag If you backup your tekkit server, copy the files on the server to a new folder on the server instead of straight to your PC. Afterwards, launch the server and download the copy. This reduces server downtime to only an hour or two instead of 6 or more. Want to Download a Pre-Patched server?

    WARNING: Do not use AlchemicalChestFix with this Server. The server already contains this patch and using both will allow items to be duped.

    Unfortunately, I will NOT be releasing developer builds of this project. I prefer to do testing myself. I have, however, linked to patches and plugins in this pack above, so feel free to make your own developer build.

    Did I forget something? Need a Tip? Have a plugin suggestion?

    Leave a comment below and I'll look into it. I plan to maintain and update this guide regularly.

    rcmaehl got a reaction from Dro in [3.1.2] FCoFix™ Tekkit Pro [5k FFA PVP/Raid/Grief, Full EE, NO BANNED ITEMS] Reopening Soon   
    First off, I see you only have 2 posts. You obviously registered just to post a bad review about my server and post a good review (although it's not really a review) about your "favorite" server.

     
    Secondly, you only played for 5 minutes. 5 minutes of play time WILL NOT give an accurate depiction of a server. However, my server stats will. This also disproves the "Every 5 minutes" statement(s), as you were only on for a 1 5-minute interval.

     

     
    Thirdly, your review is biased based on what your "favorite" server owner told you. I never "sent three ... staff members to grief the spawn of a rival server". They had played on the server for a long period of time before I ever joined or found out. To add to this point, I do not have a history of such tactics. Even more so, your server owner was the one who trusted a random player on his server with Creative. That shows poor judgement on your "favorite" server owner's part.
     
    Finally, you're being just as schizophrenic as the server owner of the rival server or following him blindly like a minion with no conscious thought of your own. I am not "us[ing] inferior tactics to take down your competition", I'm not even trying to take down the competition (with inferior tactics to yours? I should report you for that confession!). My server IP was not advertised as far as I know, and if it was the player will be banned (this rule requires proof).
     
    To sum up my review of my review:
     
    You are purposely writing a bad and fraudulent review because your "favorite" server was griefed by players/admins of my server, acting on their own accord. If you were told to do this, you should rethink your priorities on who controls you (you or some random person running a minecraft server). If you did this on your own free-will, I am ashamed. If any player of my server wrote a bad review, especially a fraudulent one, of another server JUST BECAUSE my server got griefed, I would ban them. That behavior is not acceptable from a person.
     
    In Conclusion:
     
    Please go get wrecked.

    I first posted it in the Off-Topic section, as I didn't see any other place fit, and did not want it to get seen as spam, as it happens in so many other forums.
    Thanks for moving the post, though.
    You should create an extra forum for these server tools, although they are pretty general, they are quite useful, and I'm expecting to add specific highlighting for different modpacks.

    Dude, I just skimmed his code. And was only trying to fix the error that came up. Which I did wrong because my finger was offset.
     
    Also, I improved your fix:
    while true do term.clear() term.setCursorPos(1,1) term.write("Please enter which floor you want to visit: ") local eingabe = read() if eingabe == "1" then redstone.setOutput("left", true) os.sleep(3) os.shutdown() elseif eingabe == "2" then redstone.setOutput("right", true) os.sleep(3) os.shutdown() else term.setCursorPos(1,2) term.write(eingable.." is not a valid floor") os.sleep(3) end end It offers error handling and API calls in case one of the functions (such as sleep) somehow gets overridden.
