Blockland Updates - r1931 to r1983

There have been multiple updates to Blockland since the last news steam post.
Here's a catch up post.

r1983

  • Fixed crash related to getWords/getFields
  • Iconshots/ folder now writable from screenshot functions

r1981
  • The fast connection packets introduced in r1972 can now be disabled by setting $pref::Net::FastPackets = 0; or unchecking the "Fast Packets" check box in the network settings tab. Note: this is a server-side setting.
  • File downloads will now retry instead of stopping on the "got incorrect hash!" error (note: this is not the issue of downloads freezing in the middle)
  • Fast packets will now stop immediately when client goes below the ghosting threshold
  • Fast packets will now stop for a given client if their ping goes above 350
  • Added missing Parent::onTrustCheckFinished to Brick_Large_Cubes
  • Fixed some cases where you could create multiple orphan ghost bricks
  • Fixed clicking while tumbling erroneously causing respawn
  • Fixed instantly typing "wwwwwww" if you wrench a brick while moving
  • Fixed ghost brick moving in the wrong direction while looking straight down

r1973
  • Fixed WinXP compatiblity problem from r1972

r1972
  • Multiple packets are now sent to ghosting clients on each network tick, reducing ghosting and file download times
  • Fixed certain cases of file downloads stopping
  • Fixed missing admin checks on some bot_hole server commands
  • Fixed case where moving slow moving players can phase through walls

r1966
  • Fixed issue where you could travel through a teledoor before it is removed by the build trust check
  • Fixed vehicles not burning (both client and server will have to be running r1966)
  • Fixed certain timescale/framerate combinations causing the game to freeze
  • Fixed coverage issue on ModTer 8x CornerA brick
  • Fixed crash when player type has no animations
  • You can no longer execute files named "Support_AdminEvents.cs" - this user created script was used in several other add-ons and contained an eval injection vulnerability which would allow an attacker to execute arbitrary script code on the server. Note: this was not a malicious script, it was simply poorly coded and could be exploited to attack the server.

r1958
  • Fixed LAA flag regression, should fix some crashes
  • Reduced ghost lookup table size by ~10%
  • Brick limit replaced by $pref::server::ghostlimit - this setting puts a hard limit on the number of ghosted objects in the game and reduces the size of the ghost lookup tables accordingly.
    • You cannot change the ghost limit while the game is running.
    • The ghost limit can also be set in gamemode.txt. Lower ghost limits are now set for the default game modes, saving significant amounts of memory per player.
    • The label in the custom game gui still says "brick limit" so people might have a clue what it does.
    • The valid values are powers of 2 from 32768 to 1048576, if you set some other value it will automatically round up to next highest power of 2
  • $Pref::Server::BrickLimit checks replaced by getBrickLimit() - this function derives the brick limit based on the current ghost limit.

r1956
  • Reverted ghosting optimization while I figure out what's wrong with it
  • Fixed camera relative brick movement with supershift enabled

r1955
  • Fixed issue with deleting bricks

r1954
  • ParticleData framesPerSec value is now synced to clients
  • Removed deprecated aiConnection class
  • Removed old, non-functional "storm" features of precipitation object
  • Sky object network update size reduced significantly, should fix bad packet when changing environment settings rapidly
  • Light list in wrench gui is now sorted alphabetically
  • Brick movement is now camera relative when in free cam mode
  • Fixed https link parsing in chat
  • Partially typed chat messages are now preserved when going from the loading screen to game
  • Fixed case where player is stuck in animation on spawn (credit)
  • Fixed chat being the wrong size in the loading screen
  • Fixed backspace not repeating while playGui is active
  • Delete buttons added to save/load bricks GUIs
  • Fixed this graphical error on modTer ramp
  • Miscellaneous network packing cleanup
  • Added ballRadius field to projectileData, used to prevent sports balls from sinking into ground
  • Fixed sports balls teleporting up through player when you run over them
  • Certain cases of the master server failing will no longer kick players from the game
  • Adjusted padding of listclients() console function for 6 digit IDs
  • Addressed crash exploit related to NetStringTable - I've attempted to fix the actual bug in the class, rather than detect and filter bad traffic. Hopefully this works.
  • Improved error handling on most master server posts/auth queries
  • ModTer visible faces fix (credit)
  • Client disconnect/CDROP echoes now show player name
  • Fixed local connection IPX address echo displaying garbage on Mac
  • Fixed screenshot functions being able to write outside of game folder
  • Added more sanity checks for brick limit, as people are still somehow setting this to zero
  • Made it less trivial to change your client timescale
  • Health level of other players is no longer sent over the network
  • Random environment button will no longer set transparent ground
  • When ghosting, unghosted objects are now prioritized. This is to address slow loading when there are a lot of players/vehicles moving around.
  • Increased maximum ghost limit to 1M, what could go wrong
  • Increased datablock limit to 8k, that'll be fun to download
  • You can now set individual player speeds directly using the following functions
    • setMaxForwardSpeed
    • setMaxBackwardSpeed
    • setMaxSideSpeed
    • setMaxCrouchForwardSpeed
    • setMaxCrouchBackwardSpeed
    • setMaxCrouchSideSpeed

r1931
  • Shaders are now automatically enabled for supported video cards
  • Removed "-1" chat spam event from lighthouse speedkart map
  • Added flood protection to /activateStuff
  • Added -serverName and -maxPlayers command line arguments

After all my hours into Blockland, I can't recommend it. The Blockland community has to be one of the most toxic communities I've ever experienced in any video game, and that's saying something because I've played L4D2. The sheer amount of players who think they're better than others because they browse the forums is way too much. This also applies to the braindead five nights at freddys fanboys or undertale groupies. The creator Badspot (Eric Hartman) rarley ever updates his game. Infact I don't think there has been a single major update since I've started playing, I think there was one and that was a bug fix or something. He's very active on the forums and everyone practically worships him. The forums are another issue, pure cancer. People there are so egotistical it's not even funny, constantly circle jerking each other on the stupiest ♥♥♥♥. Blockland has served me well and I've met many good friends from it but it has gotten way too bad for me. If you're going to buy this game then be prepared.

Sorry if this sounded too hostile, I'm not a very hostile person. This review was more of a rant about present day Blockland. If Blockland somehow changes and Badspot starts updating his game again I'll come back but until then I can't see myself playing it anymore.

I haven't played much of this game but it feels... Empty. I can't fin the fun in roleplaying even though I normally love it. The lack of music and weird floaty confusing controls made it really hard for me to play it. I don't recommend because it just seems a bit too blank. The trailer shows all of this cool stuff happening but I couldn't really see that in the game. The trailer was why I bought this in the first place. It looked like a fun game too play with friends and the reviews were promising but I can't see the fun too be had in this.

Were do I start.

This game, in my opinion doesn't deserve a yes or a no. It's straight smack danm in the middle.

It seems like parts of the game battle each other. The concept, artstyle, and basic building aspect fight the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ comminuty, forums, and the devs...

Let's start with the happy stuff.

Brick building! so much you can build. That part is fun. You could make a arena and fight in it, build yourself a house, and then a nebirhood, and then a city. Roleplay in it, fight in it. Add addons to make this even better. Build an airport, a military base, a cottage. Anything.

Then, event it. Script it to make an awesome game of pong, working annoucements, working bombs, automated guns, automated bots, and entire games made out of some bricks and events.

The eventing and building was fun. It was a great idea.

And for the final good thing, There are still decent servers. Only a few, but some.

Now for the negatives... now, you are about to see my atttuide about this game deeply change for this part.

The comminuty. Is a apitmal ♥♥♥♥♥. It's like every 6 year old from elementary school, who says "U mad bro" and teases, and bullys, It's the biggest cluster♥♥♥♥. The forums are ♥♥♥♥, Don't go on them. There is an entire section of the forums to writing negative threads about people, there servers, or your friends on BL. It's a ♥♥♥♥ing nightmare. There's only 1 out of 4 people who are decent human beings playing a video game. Oh, and notice there's no age limit when you click on this in the store? There should be. The amount of sexual, and the heaping amount of swears on this game are unbelivable even for a vulgar person who does it a lot. It's way over the borderline for that type of person. Sure, there's a censoring system. Yeah, but it's like roblox and it can be bypassed by a 3 year old. "♥♥♥♥" Will be taken out. "Sh!t", "Sh*t", and a lot more will not. A female or male's parts? Nope. "Jackass"? Nope.

Yep. The comminuty is so bad I HAD TO write that much.

Oh, and the latest update, V.22 Removed terrain and all that nice stuff, and in turn added some shaders or something boring like that.

The devs, are completly still around, but only on the forums and for accasonial bug fixes, (But that doesn't mean a million explotive bugs are still around forever) Have never updated the game in a while.


And, the final con.

*Dramatic Drumroll*


Blockland 2. Is a thing.

Meaning this same cluster♥♥♥♥, will repeat. Same brick building, same comminuty. It's going to happen. The maps and terrain will return, woohoo, but, probally:

3 4th of your addons? Not compatible.

Some of your amazing brick saves? Not transfering over.

Even though you own the first game? Go give the dev some more money.

And one new feature, and probally the only one beside better GUI'S maybe?

Physics... You're building a house and it tumbles over because some jackass pushed it.

Just wonderful..


Overview: I can and can't reccomend this, it just depends on you're view. This game is heaven and hell mixed in to.

*Just ignore that it says yes reccomended*

This game is really great and fun. It's pretty much like legos, but a computer game. Building is harder at first, but once you learn the basics you can build anything with ease. This game is kind of boring alone, so be sure to play with some friends. Online the game is a little dead though...


Game overall is 9/10. Reminds me of when I used to play with legos.

I like this game but after a while it just gets boring. I bought it because of the awesome trailer HELICOPTHERS LASER RIFLES AWESOME but i cant find anything like it in the game. You need to download some sort of add ons but id rather not. So its still kinda fun playing with friends buts its not worth ten dollars id say about five. 5/10 (dollars should be spent).

Good game. Bought it before it was on steam. (BLID 3649)

- Its community is pretty bad, and the servers people host aren't as active as before. Most servers don't try or try way too hard. Most builds on servers are pretty poorly built (but that's okay, we have to start somewhere).

+ The game still functions, still has some people playing. Every once in a while, some person builds something magical. Has a forum, that people use to post add-ons, server info and builds.

The Hard Truth

Listen up ladies and gents, here is the story. Blockland was a wonderful prosperous game. Great community and servers. The game was in its prime with maps and players everyone helping others build massive cities and gamemodes for all around to enjoy. Then v21 came out and took out these wonderful maps. Lots of players stopped joining these great servers and leaving the game altogether. There was still a lot of players left to build up from the rubble of this update. After a while the community slowly died. Then it hit, RTB shut down. This was the soul of the game, it held all the players' ideas and creations. Thus with this community website shutting down, it killed this game. Servers are barren, players are dazed and confused, creations dwindled. The game hit its peak then dropped harder than it should have. It's still a wonderful game it's just there are about a max population of 300 players on a day with about 90 or so servers up. About 30% of servers will have 0-2 players just sitting there, doing nothing.

Story brought to you by loads of hours of offline steam play before it hit the greenlight. Still recommending this because it's still fun with a group of friends.

amazing, i've met most of my steam friends on this. people do say this was a minecraft rip-off, but its not. this was relased in 2007 and minecraft in 2009, so ♥♥♥♥ off haters because this is probably one of the best games on steam. highly recommened.

Pros:
Everything except all the good hosts quit hosting (from what ive heard, im new)

Cons:
Good hosts quit hosting
