    Hello. Thanks everyone for help keeping this great app running!

    I have an idea: One thing that bothers me is that if you are an admin, then you cannot tell whether a chest has been locked by another player. I think that giving them a notification when they open or destroy it would be handy. You could go as far as implementing something like the 'OK' response for the !visit command, but that would probably be overkill. A simple notification would be fine.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Fenixin. Yes, I realized that I could run it without explicitly calling python in my execution line, I just wanted to make sure that one possible cause of error was taken away. You did solve my problem though! I am running python 3.x, so that seems to be it. I thought that I was loosing my mind... :smile.gif:

    Recommend that you update the readme line, "works anywhere where python does". Thanks for the neat program!

    It can relocate it properly, but there's a chance that it's preventing -5,18 from working properly.

    I'm sure there's a way to repair your world, but if you've been using SimpleServer's backup feature (I hope you have, in fact it's the reason I use SimpleServer myself) you can probably restore from the last backup before that crash.

    Thanks for the response, Covarr. Unfortunately, the crash happened while I was away for a couple of days and the backup has been overwritten with copies of the post-crash world... Arg.

    UPDATE: Fixed world with MC Edit.

    Hello. I recently had a computer crash, which ended up corrupting my world a bit. When simple server starts, it says:
    "Chunk file at -14,13 is in the wrong location; relocating. <Expected -14,13, got -5,18>"

    Does anyone know if the "chunk file at -14,13" is the long/lat of the bad chunk, or is this something else? I went there in the world and everything seemed fine! :smile.gif:

    My only problem is that if one specific player now logs on, the server crashes. I guess he is in the bad chunk?

    I know this is not really a simple server question, except for the part about interpreting the consol output regarding the bad chunk...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Hello,

    I am very much looking forward to using your tool, but I am having trouble getting it up and running. I am using Windows 7 64-bit. I have Python installed and running correctly. I have set my environmental variable to include python. So... I open up my command window and cd to the directory where your script is. Then I run:
    python region-fixer.py --help

    The output that I get is:
    File "region-fixer.py", line 41
    print "[ATTENTION] The directory \"<0>\" is not a minecraft world directory".format<dir>

    This is obviously the first time that I have tried to run a python script, and I am sure that the solution is an easy one.. I just spent thirty minutes on Google trying to solve it... Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Also, installing the 64bit version of Java will solve this problem.


    64-bit Java completely solved by freezes as well.

    I just implemented auto pixel-art generation in the Structure Planner. All you need to do is pick an image, pick a size, and click a button. It does everything else for you.


    Three Trafalgars and a Waterloo for you, sir!

    I am working on a 1:1 scale replica of the Krac De Cheveliars. Its dimensions are about 150*250 meters wide/long. It calls for about 30,000 blocks for the outer wall alone, which I have completed mining. Am out scouting for suitable build sites now... :smile.gif:

    Quote from Kuram »
    is there a way to import a topdown grid view of a sector of our current world, so that we can superimpose building schematics on it so that the layouts can fit into specific sections of our world (like if I wanted to map out a small suspended village in a valley, but so that everything fits in the valley without colliding with the walls where I dont want it to)?


    I too was wrestling with this problem. My solution was to place colored wool in Minecraft corresponding to the dimensions of my structure, and then to print out a top-down view of my map. I cut out a piece of paper that matched the dimensions of my wool markers and just moved it around on my printed map.

    I like the idea of integrating this functionality in the Structure Planner, which is already an awesome program! Really though, it might be a better fit for a straight mapper program, one that has a snappier run-time than MCEdit. I looked for a mapper that would not only show you block coordinates but let you make selections, but found none, other than MCEdit of course.

    posted a message on The Taming of Dogs/Wolves
    Hello. I have read that we might be receiving dogs/wolves in a future update, and the idea was floated that we might have to tame them first. I am curious to any of your opinions on how this might be done. The obvious choices would be to use a bone, or to fling a pork chop at its head, but I have another idea... Perhaps you could shock the puppy with redstone? I don't know.. Ideas?

    posted a message on Currently running a vanilla server. Need opinions on mods.
    I too am curious as to what others are using, especially in regards to server tools. I am using Simpleserver right now, but am looking for a change (I want something with a better intferface, not a command window that does let me see characters when I type....).

    I checked out ZMA, per the post above, and it seems pretty nice. I was also considering using Bukkit. Has anybody experienced lag issues with ZMA or Bukkit, or both together?

    Thanks,

    Eric

    UPDATE: I just reformatted my system with a clean Windows 7-64 install, latest Java and nVidia software. The crash still occurs, but I thought that I would post the Windows event log information:

    The program javaw.exe version 6.0.240.7 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.
    Process ID: c68
    Start Time: 01cbd6b4545c6dc0
    Termination Time: 94

    Report Id: 37c6bb01-42a9-11e0-a32a-001e8c7f4f38

    Also, I ran Minecraft with the debug (F3) info up, and Memory usage never got above 36% allocated. Was around 25% at the time of the last crash.

    My game window goes into a non-responsive black screen after playing for 10-30 minutes. This used to be a problem for me until the 1.2 update, and has restarted after the 1.3 updates.
