I don't understand why the ability to change names was removed? I could see a cool-down on how often names can be changed to prevent trolling, but the purpose of the BLID already helps identify users who have changed their names.
I'm glad that the game is still being supported after what happened, but removing the ability to change names seems like an unnecessary restriction unrelated to the BLID compromise or going Steam only.

On the topic of going Steam only, I am a bit concerned about the community.
I have a friend who has only played non-steam Blockland and is reluctant to make the switch now. It seems there were still a lot of non-steam users before this and I doubt he's the only one reluctant to switch. I hope this doesn't drive more people away from our already small community.

you dont need to enable client addons, they are always on
Yes, it's been a very long time since downloading a client addon and I had forgotten that they self enable so I didn't think to check that until after I had made the topic.

I hadn't thought of trying this since it has never been a problem before in my 10 years of playing this game, but I thought to check newly added but not enabled addons to see if they were causing issues. As it turns out, Client_Image2Brick was the issue. Removing it from my game fixed the problem.

I'm not sure what is causing this, I have never had this happen before. I have been away and haven't played BL for awhile and it was fine until I got back and tried to play.
When I launch my server it loads as it usually would until it gets to music, where the game then crashes. I removed my music folder to see if that was the issue and the game still crashed there, single player won't work either. I haven't gotten any new addons since I have come back.
I tried hosting a server with my old non steam BL with the same addons and settings, and the server worked so I don't think it's an addon issue.

I usually play with Steam BL and I can't use it to host my own server or even play in single player, this is a very frustrating issue. If anybody knows what might be the issue I would appreciate any help.

That's a cute van, it looks somewhat similar to the one in your profile picture.

I would like to inform you that my client EvilMasked (223153) is planning to sue you for defamation of character as you are slandering this corporation with a name bearing a resemblance to his.

yo idk what happened but this worked fine on my server for a bit, but now having it enabled causes players to get stuck at the end of loading datablocks.

10/10 otherwise
I have this same issue, with this train enabled everyone gets stuck on loading datablocks.

College has been done for a couple years now. The reasons are personal problems. I won't go into the details here.

but I will tell you I'm working on vehicle stuff again!
I'm glad to see you are back!
I like the wheel you posted a week ago, it reminds me of late 80s or early 90s Chrysler products with the pentastar looking thing in it.

use minimum shaders or turn on download textures
The trolley stays black on every shader level, and I have download textures enabled already although I'm not sure it matters since it's my own server that this is happening on and it isn't a dedicated server.

stripe color is color of the vehicle - try painting it?

bot>setForwardMovement tells the bot to move forward or backward, it must be powered off prior to caling the event. you  can test this with onBotSpawn > bot > powered > off, and a scheduled out onbotspawn > bot > setforwardmovement 1 second after
Thanks, those events worked for me.
As for the colour of the trolley, it stays black regardless of what colour I paint it. However, other people on the server can see it in the different colours. I don't know what the issue is but it must be something on my end.

How does the Bot>SetForwardMovement event work? I turned off the bot and set the direction, but the bot never moves it just stays still. I am currently using Bot>GoToBrick events for the trains on my server but it is a bit glitchy, I would like to know what I'm doing wrong so I can use the proper events.

Also, I noticed that in all of the pictures of this mod the Trolley has a white stripe, but my Trolley has a black stripe. What could be causing this?

Do these count as cursed? Since this is BL I'm not sure what the standard is.

  • fixed .blb converter not recognizing mixed case blb extensions (fixes cool blockhead's issue)
  • fixed large bricks missing pieces on higher resolution renders (unrelated to cool blockhead's issue)
  • fixed /createminimap filename all seeing non-rendering bricks (fixes cool blockhead's issue)
  • added slight padding to all minimap screenshots so bricks don't touch the edge of the picture
  • fixed map size detection giving slightly incorrect size for /createminimap filename all, which may have cut off some bricks on the edges of pictures

known issues i might get around to fixing:
  • peter panning on bricks in maps with tall structures. probably would require me to make a new shadow antialiasing algorithm (the fix i used to remove shadow artifacting caused by the antialiasing algorithm was to increase the bias which resulted in peter panning) and since i don't know the GLSL shadow tricks its going to be tough

download the new files here:
program (extract to Blockland/minimap/jars):
Excellent! Thank you, those issues are fixed now.
