Re: Best or worst idea? Getting a Velotaxi/Rikshaw for private use

Electric bikes don't have to me madly powerful. In fact, there's more than a few examples of builds that use the motors from old swegway/hoverboard things. A proper speed controller and a battery that doesn't want to burn your house down, and you have the ruminations of a reasonable electric pedal-a...

Anyway, a slight problem is, how about old authorities?
Handle that in-script. Compare new authorities, and any that exist in the old file but not in the new, explicitly reset their access level to 15.

Re: Ladle 119 (1st November 2020)

I like this idea better. In fact, it might be appropriate to just write an external script to download the new authorities, say every ten minutes. A ten minute propagation time for new perms seems admissible, I think.

Re: Ladle 119 (1st November 2020)

Does the server hold the config in memory whilst being used, or does it consult the file each time a player logs in? If the former, we could potentially solve that issue by creating an inaccessible file in place of the authority file, forcing the server to fetch a copy every round. It's just a few k...

Re: Ladle 119 (1st November 2020)

I've been thinking about resources. We've been building resources based on ladle iteration for a while, but a number of servers never seem to get updated. Would it not be more efficient to rename each ladle server "Ladle - (owners location)" and rename the resources to "ladle_authorities_current.cfg...

Re: US Election 2016

it worries me how many people I see with similar opinions when I look into it more. There's the rub - it's already extraordinarily widespread, and not only in the US. For the most part, it's quite passive. It doesn't change everyday behaviour. However, it does change people's opinions and their con...

Re: US Election 2016

Normally I might agree with you, but recent events have somewhat muddied the waters IMO. The autonomous zone in... was it Chicago(?) was somewhat unprecedented in modern times, which leads me to believe that at least part of the US would be open to armed opposition. Certainly not on the scale of a p...

Re: Player Ranking System Feasibility

If we were to approach such an idea, I might suggest that we do so completely separately from regular pickup - a so-called "ranked" pickup if you will. Assuming we score players based on their performances solely in those games, we might see some slightly different results.

Re: Getting old players back

this idea was actually floated a few weeks ago in the discord (not sure which channel), but the long and short is that privacy laws prevent people's forum email addresses from being used for this sort of thing I'm not sure that's entirely correct. This is technically a service update, hence we are ...
