Perhaps he formed the letters "NSFW" [sic] using in-game objects, and everybody gets tricked into thinking about something dirty by perceiving it as censored box.

I haven't built anything on the server.  But you are 200% correct as to the contents behind the gray box.

And there are 12 houndius shootius(es?) encapsulated in the artwork.  Tongue in cheek, I imagine.

Apparently there is a group of player named themselves "server raider"

this is not the first time they hold klei server hostage like this 


5e4bff7fd0c84_tryhardsconvo.thumb.png.f2fb23ac3cf3dd8392e127679590be3c.png

 

and looks like these ppl have invented weird afk auto eating / auto detect torch-equiped / auto kick mod (a.k.a botting)

with this weird mod they can take over any un-moderated server easily if there are atleast 4ppl from this group in the world

some of them stay in there almost 24hours a day basically make world live forever as long as they want.
 

atleast these guys DO allow new player to join in unlike that clayfish server case 

so i guess its ... acceptable ?

I get that Klei official server is a lawless place where everyone can do whatever they want

but holding server hostage like this is a bit too far imo.

 

 

well said.

I am aware of the existence of this group chat. However, this chat is not currently being used to coordinate any group effort into keeping this particular server alive. A few members have willingly made their way onto the server but they are simply playing at their own expense, and 95%+ of the people who regularly visit this server have no relation to this group in any way. Whether or not this particular group of ‘server raiders’ are doing anything wrong is a topic appropriate for another discussion as our current conversation pertains to the server and players of Catcoon Den.

As for the afk mod, one of the people who play on the server enjoys to code and make new mods and he decided to undertake the task of creating an afk mod. He succeeded and he is the only person in the server who is currently using the said mod. I have already stated that individuals on the server are free to do anything they’d like as long as they are not destroying base; this person chooses to play using the afk mod and no one on the server has the power or right to stop him. Someone else did create an auto detect torch/hammer/fire staff/etc. equip mod but I don’t see the problem here and there is no auto kick mod currently being used by anyone.

It seems like you struggle with reading comprehension so I suggest that you go back and slowly reread my previous post before making your next reply. In it I have clearly explained why no one is holding this server a hostage and you’ve failed to address any of the points made.

There's already high demand for fresh public worlds. Klei official servers in particular, since they usually have good connection.

I don't see a high demand for fresh public worlds. There are a lot of dedicated servers from the Don't Starve Together (DST) Steam group which are even better than the Klei servers, because there are often Admins handling griefers and putting them on a ban list for all their servers (you can also report them, if there is no admin online) or exhorting players if they use bad language or making stress. You can always find some fresh servers of this group and their range of connection is as good as the Klei ones, you can even play in bigger groups as they all have 12 or 18 slots.

I don't think the server should be kept going at such a high count. There's already high demand for fresh public worlds. Klei official servers in particular, since they usually have good connection. Whether done intentionally or not, an AFK script player is in fact keeping the world hostage. Public survival servers normally reset when a player joins to die when it's empty to start over on a fresh world. Survival mode has been like that for as long as I've played. A public server might go into a year or two through the players' decision to keep playing rather than starting over, but it's generally very rare for it to beyond that. Everyone would acknowledge that to have a long-lasting server, you should host it yourself. ESPECIALLY if it's going into the thousands. Rather than using an AFK script, which is arguably cheating, to keep a survival world from resetting, why not just host your own server in Endless mode, the mode MADE for hosting servers that go into the thousands?

Sure there may be a high demand for fresh Klei worlds but the point I was making is that there exists a demand for long lasting Klei worlds as well; enough of a demand to warrant the world lasting for 6.6k+ days. As I’ve said there are countless players who joined as strangers and decided to stay for hundreds to thousands of days because they found this long lasting server entertaining enough; surely this is proof enough that the demand for such a world exists. Regarding the player using the afk mod there is no way for other players to stop him from doing so whether they condone such a thing or not; if you feel strongly about the use of afk mods in public servers you should contact this person directly. However, I can assure you that this one player using the afk mod is not the reason that this server survived for so long. There are always other active players in the game with him; if he was the sole player who wished to continue the server, the world would’ve reset by now through a regen vote.

The reason why these players seem to enjoy playing in a long lasting Klei server as opposed to an endless/private server is perhaps because Klei servers provide a fast paced and chaotic environment that is much more interesting than an endless or private server. Things are constantly changing around the world and Klei servers get much more traffic than endless/private servers which allow players to meet and interact with many new people. By having such a server last for so long allows people to become friends with the strangers they meet; I certainly made many new friends by playing in this server.

Yeah, a user on there asked if it were possible so I made it for him.  Told him to feel free to redistribute if he wants, here's the pastebin: https://pastebin.com/V4Az6txG

It's nothing too fancy, but seemed helpful to the user which he modified to use TheNet:Say and have it broadcast to people in the chat instead of having his local client have it printed above his character's head.  This is a customcommands.lua "mod", so if it looks weird that's because it's designed for that as a quick prototype.  If anyone wants to make it into a workshop mod then go for it; I have no plans on doing it myself.

The blacklist part is for if you have trusted people and you want them to not alert you of the items being used in question, using their KleiID as a discriminator.  Yes that's my KleiID there as an example, commented out.

For years now people have complained on Steam and Klei forums about the griefer pub problem and Klei themselves did nothing - actually what could one say when even the DST Trailer has a Willow griefer; Steam Workshop is full of all-kinds of loco mods yet the above has never been touched upon 'till now. Finally a rudimentary Client-side mod that at least underlines what players might be doing in said pubs pops and yet... is for a handful of players with questionable tactics regarding Klei pubs. What can I say... :)

It's right there in the pastebin link.  Anyone could use it if they wanted to.  I just can't be bothered to making it into a more valid workshop-styled mod as it would take cleaning up the code, creating an icon, using that tool which takes a bit to load when you've published mods before to upload it, then clean up the workshop page to be more Steam friendly than in-game DST panel friendly.  It's a pain.

All mods created are done at the bequest of the creator, mostly uncompensated for.  If you see a problem and feel inclined to make a mod to fix it, then go for it.  Me personally, I've made quite a few mods for anyone to use to stop things I found annoying on the workshop.

Oh well, no biggie (minus the sarcasm), at least there's a start-point towards a non-spammy specific-action announcer regarding what players equip on hand-slot. I guess I should take upon me the task of finding a programmer to first translate in Layman's terms what your mod actually does and how depicts information on screen in relation to what and how I would find useful to know in pubs regarding potential griefers and... all that you enumerated to bring about a functional well-made Workshop Mod. Ty for at least making that code public :encouragement:

Sidoldi launched some flares to celebrate the new Klei server World Record around day 6620.

5e4bb0826f4d0_WorldRecord.thumb.png.e573601019b8fc64278fe43f6608e607.png

Woah this picture have so much ancient technology. Look at this single glimpse of the base. Well, I mark it with number for anything I can find.

5e4bb0814ebaf_WorldRecord.png.d1732d7c26e3ef2ee50389f956c4abdf.png.thumb.jpg.f321ba494a9a7d76c83ba1a6a58c8cae.jpg

Number 1: Is that stacked drying racks? I’ve seen normal drying rack skin and also butcher’s rack skin overlapping each other. Take a look at this individual skin.

rack.jpg.c415c8cc06312daff59c2836e4331154.jpg5e4cebd35ea4e_ScreenShot2020-02-19at08_30_46.png.8c1fafedfebe4a02fc367694f7fee2ba.png

well, compared to that number 1, we can see it clearly, 2 racks in a single space of rack placement. What a beautiful method to not only preserve meat, but also preserve space :encouragement:

Number 2: Mini sign on ice box and salt box. Well until now I cant place a mini sign exactly center like that :lol: That mini sign can be viewed 360 degree right? And also one of the mini sign have a deerclops eyeball drawing on there. Im so curious what inside it.

Number 3: A masonry oven and winter feast table. Thats a building that will never can be crafted if we play DST nowadays. Well, probably we could, but we have to wait until next winter feast event. Such a rare buildings.

Number 4: A lot amout of evil flowers. This one is probably I know, If we wear bee queen crown, and stand in the center of that, our sanity will be quickly restored. Still thats a very nice design. Mushlight on the center, glowcap on the edge, and bee queen crown chest next to it. Neat!

Number 5: The heart and pentagon. I dont know what to say about this. A perfectly symmetrical heart shaped sculpture and also perfectly symmetrical pentagon shaped houndious shootious. By just looking at that, it makes me smile and feel a peace. Wait, no! this cant be real life sanity restoration building! :o ... isn’t it?
 

Well, only in this single image, I can found alot of technology used in this world. My next question will be, what’s in the south of base? What about north of base? east? and west? and what about cave? Such technology waiting to be unravel one by one!

1. If two or more people start building a structure (time wherein the hands are moving around but not structure is placed yet) at the same time, then they override the validity checks for collision and ultimately lets you stack multiple structures in the same spot.

2. Minisigns on the same coordinates of any other prefab will render right in front of the prefab at any yaw angle.

3, 4. Yes.

5. Bone fossils may be placed at any precise coordinate, so using two you have two circles of collision with perfect placement that you can use to move your player into a perfect position to use a force drop mod to drop the statues exactly where you're at.  Thus, perfect statue placement through indirection.

That is one of the best decorative shrines I've ever seen. 

The best part is that it's not entirely just decoration. It looks to be a functional (in)sanity station too.
