General's Add-Ons

Following the news on the closure of RTB and the fact that I used it to upload most of my add-ons, I have decided to re-post all of my add-ons in this topic for future download. The reason I will post them all here rather than on separate topics is because it is easier for me to manage my add-ons if there are all in one place. I will be using this topic to post future add-ons as well.

I am fully aware that some add-ons on this topic are environment files etc. and would not normally be posted in this board. I didn't think it would be problem considering it's a mega-topic with many add-ons, however, inform me if it's not allowed and I will sort it out.

Another important piece of information is if you find any bugs in a mod that you please report it as soon as possible so that I can fix it when I have adequate time. I usually find that not many people send bug reports and therefore bugs remain in the mods for  long periods of time.

Evening Sky
Developers: General


Description
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.

Scripts


Baseplate Rules
Developers: General


Description
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 ***

Commands:
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.



Advanced Vehicle System
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.

Preferences
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.

Unsupported

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.

Adjustable Plate
Developers: General


Description
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.

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

It's an interior, so you can't use it anymore.

The reason I included this section is so that people who like to play older versions of Blockland are still able to download them.
Poor steam users can't because they don't have keys.

Can you make the Slate Water - Night into a skybox?

Assuming you posted this since RTB is going down, always enjoyed your add-ons, General.
