Uh oh! Beware if you want to create a server at Beta

Discussion in 'Starbound Discussion' started by Bacon, Nov 30, 2013.

  1. Heya people.

    So just around IRC we got news that well, servers at this beta start is more between friends, as the Roadmap shows and it looks updated on this aspect, just confirmed:
    - There is no cheat protection implemented.
    - Banning is yet to be added.
    - Admin tools to be mostly missing.

    So if you plan to setup a server for a larger group of people or a public one, the start of this Beta is certainly not the best option, as things seems to be easy exploitable and cheat-able at start. So as Bart said, you may look to get into a server with your friends so you don't need to handle situations you don't have the tools for.

    As confirmed on IRC:
    bartwe: currently
    bartwe: there is no cheat protection, none
    bartwe: server play is for now only for between friends

    In know this may be asking a lot but is there any form of white list? And with the mass modding abilities of the game, would a whitelist be possible to mod in if one is not implimented?

    Indeed, this was said by bartwe two streams ago as well.

  6. They will look to add features to the server with time, this is just the start, so we must get used to this issues and get the best from it. That's why they said about "Beta Stages", because some want a more complete and stable experience.

    Man that hurts. Ahhh well, guess we'll see how it goes. I'm surprised there's not even a ban feature though, or a black/white list implemented. Hopefully they get added within time I'd like to host a public server, not gonna happen without some form of admin tools though.

    Characters are also saved on the client, not on the server. So yeah, don't play on servers if you want to make sure nobody is cheating. :D

    Any idea concerning a possible white list ? :catface:
    Being a mod of the french community forum/website, I wonder if we'll be able to have our own server. The french community is really eager to play together. :monkey:

  11. Well except for when the server admin tools and options like save character to server side are available. =]

    If the server software lets you see the IP of anyone that joins than banning them should be as easy as blocking them on a firewall/router.

    Although just having it built into the server would be much better.

    I was just going to play on a private server anyway.
  14. That server-side character thing, being client-side, i'm totally confuse if they will use the frustrating Terraria (tshock) that is server-inventory, that forces us the delete stuff, kicks, etc... The server owners must have the option to force players create a new char to play on them (so we avoid inventory editors), so that's why i'm unsure how client-side chars achieve that.

    I'm hoping this will be a feature that gets added when the server-side is getting some programmer love. Ideally it would work like they announced, with the server admin being able to configure where the characters are saved, but with an option for players to download/import their character from the server to a single player game.

    What about passwords?

    You won't need to register an account with chicklefish, so you won't need to log in either. That means no passwords.

    Well... there's no real need for passwords yet, though?
    Your characters are saved on your pc, not the server. So there isn't anything to protect with those passwords anyway.
