    Donor TechnodeFirmaCraft server

    We didn't yet have a place specific to this server on our forum I think. So here goes. Perhaps I'll add a bunch of stuff here related to this server. But for now it's a place where I can communicate about servers updates.

    Today the TnFC server has been updated. The new ATLauncher share code is: q4pnMAOf (check server page)

    Cannot progress in Technode

    I am not sure where to post this issue but this is the only thread relating to the Technode server.

    I believe we are not able to progress in technology because vanilla items are protected or restricted. Jiro noticed that we are unable to produce wool blocks from wool cloth so that closes the Forestry part to us. I cannot convert TFC glass bottles to vanilla so I am unable to get creosote oil from the coke oven as well. I cannot craft the steel furnace that was found in the quest book as that is a vanilla item.

    The only thing I noticed is that all these items are listed as vanilla and that is why I think having vanilla items protected/restricted is preventing us from progressing beyond normal TFC.

    The proper sub forum would be the Server issues one since this is clearly an issue

    I've removed the Vanilla protection script. I copied it over a while ago when placing other scripts there as well. We use it on the TFC servers to protect the roads in the wild. But clearly it's not needed on TnFC. Let me know if that solved the problem.

    Just to clarify, the TnFC version right now is 2.14.6, and the ATLauncher shade code is Wr9IKrNh, is that correct? We've finally got internet worth the name, and I doubled my RAM, so I'm hoping I can actually start playing again.

    Not quite. I'm a little behind on the updates. But it seems that isn't necessarily a bad thing as the new TFC breaks some stuff on Cauldron. I try to keep the server page up to date with the version we are currently running.

    Right now that's 2.16.4 with the share code you mentioned.

    Awesome! I'd been having trouble last night downloading the pack (I did mean 2.16.4, not 2.14.6, derp), but figured out today it's JourneyMap that was causing me trouble. As long as I don't try and download that one, I can get the rest of them going. Now to see if I can log in!

    Sverf messaged me yesterday saying there was a problem with the TFC server's backups. We're not sure why, but it seems like the backup process got stuck somehow. We've been using the same scripts to run and backup the server for years and have never encountered this problem before so we're hoping this is a fluke of some kind.

    When creating backups the server the server does a save-all and then, temporarily, goes into read-only mode. This is done so that all files on the hard drives are in a consistent state before creating the backup. After the backup is completed the server goes into read-write mode again and can safe it's modified files like it normally does. We're guessing this last part didn't happen and it got stuck. When Sverf noticed that things were stuck, he killed the server process and restarted the TFC servers. Unfortunately this means that the TnFC server had been in read-only mode since June 3rd keeping all changes in RAM. As soon as it was killed all those changes were lost.

    We're sorry this has happened and caused, what looks like, a roll-back on the server. Again we've never had this kind of problem before. We'll keep an eye on the backups and hope this is just a one time thing.

    No problems! Now I know how to make my builds better so its kinda nice it rolled back actually. And by the way thanks for hosting a awesome server!
