I've created this thread to prevent a whitelist application thread turning into a discussion of something else ^^

Jesus christ fix the server and make it publicly open, keep the whitelisting though, just accept everyone.

Add this plugin: http://dev.bukkit.or...lugins/mychunk/ and we're set.
The servers are dead because we don't have enough people that play.

Everyone keeps going like "duh, I don't trust you with my stuff", yet they don't even play and are afraid of their two diamonds and a workbench.


To be honest what max suggested might be a good idea.

What do you think? :)

No Max!

I think it shouldn't be pubicly open, because now there is almost no chance in grief and such.
IMO this application thing works out just fine

And to Gaiden: As your only 2 posts on the forum are in this application, I should suggest getting to know the community more.
Make a thread in the Welcome section, for example.
It's a no from me, but I'm sure you'll get there when you take some time and play some more on the LDT servers!


As it seems you were just looking for a server to play on, regardless of what community, it seems you are unfortunately at the wrong place.
This server was meant to be for the people who play on the LDT servers on Garry's Mod. If you still want to join this server, you are going to have to play some gmod!


So, you're saying you enjoy playing all alone? go play singleplayer then and stop bothering me with your bad arguments.

Did you even bother clicking on the link? it'll allow you to buy chunks, in which nobody else can open chests or destroy blocks. We also have prism which logs every block change and allows for rollbacks.

The point of still having to apply prevents random griefers from randomly joining and causing trouble, while people from the outside who want to play still can.

On top of that, when did you join minecraft the last time iksman? I haven't seen you in at least 4 days, and before that you didn't play much either. You're exactly the kind of person i've been talking about, overprotective over things you don't even care about. I guess you want to make sure that nobody steals stuff while you're inactive for 3 months?

LDT's constant "WE ARE GMOD ONLY OMG OMG OMG OMG NOBODY ELSE ALLOWED" is starting to annoy me, we need to move forward. Right now we're just sitting in our little mudhole with 4 hatches on the surface in which people fall now and then.

Agreed. There is almost no one on the server, and it gets really boring playing alone. I rarely see people play (other than a few people like Mac and Cyrill)

It's more fun to have people to trade with, to showoff to and to discuss with. This server has been dying over and over again because people are not getting the point that a whitelist is not a durable solution.

Iksman and I have stopped around a week ago. Not because we don't care, but because we've started a project that draws all the focus.
He, I and a friend of ours decided to work on getting a server and we're currently working on the map. When we're finished and the server is up and running, I will be returning to the Modded Server for sure.
This is just a thing Iksman and I have been wanting to do for a while but couldn't really be arsed to.

Back to the topic however:
Although it's true that the server was initially intended to be for the LDT-community, I agree with Max and Wazza: let them in!
As far as I can tell, the server has died too many times, and letting new people in could make the Community grow..

@Max

I guess you're right...
Sorry for not checking the link, now that I have, I can see some changes that can benefit the server.
And by putting it open to the public, I guess the server will be a bit more lively.

@Torturer

I didn't stop playing alltogether though, I will also return and check back every now and then

If we need a larger server population, then let's see how far we can loosen the strictness of allowing people in while keeping the trash out. Entirely opening the server might be a bad idea, we have no idea what kind of influx (both quantity and quality of people) we will get.

My suggestion:
-Anyone who is in ANY way related to LDT is accepted. Plays gmod, friend of someone, whatever. If you know LDT from anything but MC you can join.
-Anyone who is completely random, found the LDT MC by googling and wants to join, needs to pay a small fee (Like, 3 euros). This measure keeps out the trash.

This way, the server is accessibly to anyone. All community people and their friends get to play and all random people get to play, with the exception of kids trying to find a free server for whatever intentions they may have.

LDT is LDT.

I think we've reached the point where we can drop the privilege aspect of the Minecraft server and open it up to more people.

That sounds like it'd fix the problem pretty well.

Would the computer that's hosting the server be able to handle the extra load?

The server is able to handle at least 60 players on vanilla, and my internet is able to handle 96 players ^^

But let's discuss this idea and not if the server can handle it :P
If not I got a stronger one upstairs :)

Whitelist but make it open to the public, it's not often someone like Gaiden will randomly find us or even want to use a server like ours. The server isn't hard to moderate, any griefers can be easily dealt with. I don't think they should pay for the privelage but they're still welcome to donate.

Wow, I never would have expected such a bad idea from you.
This measure would keep out everyone from the outside, because there are so many alternatives which don't require payment.


One really important step for an open server would be the restriction of quarries, pumps and itempipes - they're the serverkiller

Making someone pay to join the server would not be the best idea even if it was for only people who do not have any connections with the community. It would not attract actual Mc players then it would only attract players that would play for a short time and then stop again.

i say if they can be asked to find the community's website and make an account and apply for the white list then let them in not many trolls are going to go through the effort of doing that when their are hundreds of other servers to troll on anyway.

Or make permission groups for certain actions? (like Max said, quarries and pipes)

But yeah, nopay
