So I've been playing since friday, great freaking game. I've learned how to run my own server and am trying to learn the next steps in being awesome, came here looking for resources, decided to introduce myself.
I hate complaining but a lot of this post will probably be taken as that, so first...
I've been hosting my own server for the duration I've been playing like I said, and it's pretty greaat...though I screwed up with the directory so my stuffs really disorganized hehe. I've been playing with stuff trying to learn the border to how each thing functions, and I must say even though the greass is slow, I love how the trees work. I discovered by accident they grew from the bushes when building a nature spot on the third story of my house lol. Once I announced my discovery to the server let me tell you...suddenly people starting building underground forests (with glass roofs of course) and stacking trees on wood piles 5, 10, 25 blocks high...It blew my mind the fun things that some of the coding in this game is capable of. I am, however, wondering how exactly I make Omen work? Sure I can open it up and mess wtih a FEW things, but if I try to tell it to generate me a new map it simply freezes no matter how much time I give it. It's not too hueg an issue since I found a couple decent maps to download online, but it's a small bother ya know?
Now...I love the game but am having difficulty with parts of the community. My in-game name is AppleCart, which is so totally not intended to sound trollish, I'm just bad at spur of the moment creativity and thought a fruit themed name would be funny, yet when I enter a game I've actually had 25% of all OPs think I'm a griefer and either ignore me or ban me straight out. One guy even banned me the second I joined! The only message I saw was "NO" before being banned, and that really REALLY hurts one's opinion of stuff yeah?
I try to be a nice fair player but it seems like the griefing has gotten so bad that even though I just joined, it's impossible for me to get into a server I can actually build and have fun on that I don't host myself!
I really don't know what to do....I've tried to obey every rule of every server, and the only times people let me in it's usually becasue for some reason that specific server has an OP who just lets people out without them even talking.
I don't know it just seems like people are so on edge about griefing they wont even give me a chance. I can understand on servers where people have built thins like gaint Gundams...but I feel like every server with people is also psycho pissed at ALL times.
I guess the question I need to ask in all that is what can I chane about how I interact with these psycho OPs so I don't piss them off? I've tried to build something to get their approval but I just don't seem to understand the design scale ANYBODY wants of me. My imagination is pretty good but I'm easily discouoraged, and I just can't seem to make something I consider good that also fits into an admin's standards.
I'm sorry for the way this thread probably comes off...I'm still stressed from the crap I took last night when all I wanted to do was join a few servers and learn whats going on. I hate griefers...I just don't get why people always take me as one.
