Help / Re: Screen problem

Is this resolved?

To me it sounds like a problem with your system rather than Blockland.

Try updating your graphics drivers.

McDonald's food tastes like its playplace smells: like feet and grease.

Dunno what chain "pizza" is, but the other two are pretty gross.

I used to love McDonald's as a kid but now it's just garbage to me.

I don't think Taco Bell existed in Spain until recently, or at least not in my area, cause the first time I had it was now at 24 years of age and also, it's gross.

Ugh can those who already own the game get just one last name change so they can change the name of a key with an ABSOLUTELY USELESS name which they didn't know they would be stuck with for an eternity?

One of my keys are named "siba & General" back when, you guessed it, I hosted a dedicated server where siba and I were hosts. Unless I'm gonna host another siba & General dedicated server, the key is now useless :cookieMonster:

WARNING: These add-ons are no longer supported by me, meaning that they are no longer updated and probably won't work on your game. The reason I included this section is so that people who like to play older versions of Blockland are still able to download them. These mods will not break your current game, they just won't run.

Client Mods

Map Lighting Fix v4
Developers: General

This mod fixes the broken lighting on maps, access settings via the options menu under the "Graphics" tab. Only works on V20.


Adjustable Plate v8
Developers: General

The title best describes the functionality of this map, it is another Plate edit which you are able to adjust to your own satisfaction in-game via a settings manager window. Changes are made instantly to the map with just a click, without requiring to restart the map or game. The manager is user-friendly and comes with a large variety of options to choose from.

Settings that you are able to change:
1. Sky texture and color
2. Visibility distance, fog distance and fog color
3. Sun light color, and brightness
4. Plate color
5. Water
6. Precipitation

You are also able to save the settings you have changed for future use. The map settings can only be changed by the server host, so you don't have to worry about changes being made while you are away or not in the server.

Special thanks to BAC for creating the original Plate map.

Type /mapSettings into the chat while on the map to open the settings manager, you can also bind a key for this command.

Social Media Statistics v1
Developers: General

The mod obtains like/follower data from a specified Facebook or Twitter page and displays them as text prints on bricks. The mod is aimed at servers or people who have Twitter/Facebook pages they wish to advertise (In other words, get players to like you page by making them curious about wanting to see the counter increase, lol). That's pretty much it.

How it works:
To view followers/likes in-game, you need to name print bricks with the wrench accordingly:
  • Name the bricks you want to show Facebook likes "fb1-9", 1 being the single unit, 2 being the tens, 3 being the hundreds and so on.
  • Name the bricks you want to show Twitter followers "tw1-9", 1 being the single unit and so on...

So for example, say you have 1,234 followers on twitter (you wish, lol). Name a print brick tw1 and it will display 4, name a print brick tw2 and it will display 3... You should get it by now I hope.

By default the mod gets data from the sites every 5 minutes, this can be changed with instructions below.

You can only use these if you're Super Admin.

To manually update the counters, type the command /smUpdate into chat. 

You can change a few preferences by using the following commands below:
  • /smSetFacebook <pageID>  To set the Facebook page to monitor.
  • /smSetTwitter <pageID> To set the Twitter page to monitor.
Leave <pageID> blank to stop receiving data.

The IDs can be obtained from the following parts of the urls of your Facebook or Twitter pages:


By default the stats update every 5 minutes, to change this, update the variable $SM::TickRate through console, time is in milliseconds. Remember, Twitter and Facebook do have limits for the amount of updates you can do, so keep the number reasonable.

All these preferences are saved upon exit.

General's Add-Ons

Seeing as people have been messaging me for working links to my add-ons as the links on the old topic are broken, in addition to there not being much to do these days, I have decided to create a new topic to revive my (crappy) legacy.

Please message me if you discover any bugs in the add-ons which are listed as still supported, I may or may not repair it depending on how large the issue is or how bothered I am at the time I receive the report.

But perhaps most importantly, I have somewhat fond memories of this game and this community, and though I am now an adult and don't play this game any more, it will continue to be my favourite game. Keep being strange loners, Blockland community.

Evening Sky v1
Developers: General

I am aware that a similar sky to this one already exists by default, except I feel that the default one has a large contrast in colours which makes it look unrealistic and uneasy to look at.

I hope you guys like my version.

Advanced Vehicle System v1
Developers: General

Sometimes with considerably large builds, we need to place many vehicles scattered around the map to make the build usable in a server or game mode. In very large builds, the absolute maximum limit for vehicles may not be enough to fill the build with an adequate amount of vehicles, and usually using the maximum number of vehicles in a server causes a very slow connection to the clients connected to the server.

This mod allows users to place as many vehicles as they like on a server, while still maintaining a quick connection to all the clients connected to the server.

How it works:
When vehicles are not within a radius close to a player, they are deleted, meaning that the vehicle object is no longer causing strain on the players. When a player re-enters the given radius of the vehicle, it will be re-spawned.

The main cause of connection strain however is not by stationary vehicles, but rather by vehicles in use. Stationary vehicles act mainly as static shapes until they are in motion and therefore mainly cause rendering strain on the client side.

To fix the connection strain caused by many vehicles being in use at the same time, a limit for number of re-spawning vehicles has been implemented. The default number for this is 5. Whenever there are 5 or more people using vehicles, then vehicles which have been deleted will no longer re-spawn until the number of people who are using vehicles drops below 5 again. This makes it virtually impossible for more that 20 people to use vehicles at the same time.

You can change a few preferences by changing the following variables through the console:
  • $SRV::VehicleCheckRadius  << The radius of the check for players around any vehicle (default 150)
  • $SRV::RadiusCheckPeriod << The period for any vehicle to check for new players in their radius (default 1000 ms)
  • $SRV::MaxUsageSpawn << The number of players that can use vehicles before they stop respawning (default 5)

These preferences are not saved upon quitting.

If you do not know how to change these, then it's probably for the best sorry lol.

Baseplate Rules v8
Developers: General

A script created for the sake of keeping servers neater and organised, it disallows players from planting anything other than baseplates on the ground unless permitted otherwise.

This mod enables you to manage how people build on your server more easily, it comes with a built-in manager which allows you to modify its settings. However, the manager does not function if you are hosting a dedicated server and join it on a copy of Blockland which does not have the mod. In this case, you can use server commands to change the settings. Only server hosts can change settings, so you don't have to worry about anyone tampering with the mod while you are not in your server, the rule will also never apply to hosts. You can decide exactly which players have the liberty to build without the rule by simply adding their ID to the rule exception list, you can also choose which admin group the rule applies to. Lastly, if you don't need the mod on the server you are hosting and have it enabled, you can simply disable it in-game without the hassle of having to restart the server.

*** Please note that the mod does not and is not meant to work on Single Player / LAN games, so don't post it as a bug ***

1. Type /br into the chat to open the settings manager window.
2. In the rare case where the manager does not open on your dedicated server, type /BRcommandHelp into the chat to get a list of all the commands you can use to manage the mod.

How to use the manager:
1. To enable/disable the mod, click on the checkbox labelled "Enable".
2. To select which admin group(s) the rule applies to, select an option from the drop-down menu labelled "Applies to".
3. To add a player to the rule's exception list, enter their ID into the box below the "Add" button and then press the button. The box will flash red if the ID you wish to enter is incorrect or already on the list.
4. To remove a player from the rule's exception list, click their ID on the list and press the "Remove" button.
