Today it was found out that some members of the community were duplicating items. They have been given a warning that if it happens again they will be banned. They didn’t think it was something that serious.
This is a banable offense. Why?
Because on this server we don’t allow users to spawn items, because its a survival server not a creative server.
Duplicating items is considered the same thing, once you get any block you are able to duplicate it, gaming the whole trade and survival aspect of the server. Once you are able to get that block you can technically have infinite amounts of that block.
For all of those currently doing it, I would recommend turning yourself in now, you wont be banned and will also get a warning.
This is a warning, that if you do this, or continue to do this in the future, you will be banned.
I think the server is running on 1.7.2. Im not 100% sure but if someone with a 1.7.2 game came on they wouldn’t be able to do this bug on a 1.7.3 server because their computer isn’t running the code to do those actions it would be the server. And therefore the bug wouldn’t work. If the server is on 1.7.2 server firmware (I guess) then it would be good to get on the latest version, but that’s a hassle for andy if he also has to reinstall the plugins and stuff, especially when 1.8 may be right around the corner and he has to do it again.
Actually, Bukkit RB1000 (1.7.3) breaks a lot of plugins which means I would have to update most of them. 1.8 is approaching soon and it’s just more convenient to update things in one batch (it preserves my sanity).
We will be updating to a new map regardless, we’re just undecided on what to bring over asides from towns.
