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 playing Blockland since 2008 I really enjoyed the sandbox esqe game. If you really want a new sandbox game this is a good pick in my book.

PROS
>Good Building Mechanics
>Awesome Servers
>Has Addons to Play Around With.
(There is many more PROS but I cannot think of anymore)

CONS
>Rancid Community (Any one in a Fandom is gonna get Butt ♥♥♥♥♥ by these guys.)
>Building will take a Long Time to do unless you learn the Build Commands.
>RTB Client does not work anymore ;(
>No Maps Anymore ;(

Overall My Ratings.
Visuals - 8.5/10
Physics - 10/10
Community - 4/10
Story - There is none.

Overall - 9/10

And no, this is not a Roblox Clone you Idiots that think so.

whilst can be a fun sandbox game, this games building mechanics are frustrating, very complex and entirely non-noob friendly. about two years from buying this for two bucks I still find my self frustrated building a simple shack, and to get better tools you must go to the mod website and download a couple of tools that also need some explaining done.

now that that is overwith, lets get on to multiplayer.

you can find a decent amount of servers built by the community, some titled "Joni's TownRPG" or "Military RP" which the second one takes a heavy amount of addons and mods which shouldn't take long. anyway, the TownRPG mode is run by ten year olds who tower over you expecting you to do everything they say. shall you rebel against them and they spray a bunch of random incomprihensible blabber at you before banning you. if you do get farther than that you have to become a farmer and build a house, which takes more than a couple of hours and if you are lucky if they won't destroy it after you build it.

atleast thats what happened in that server.

Military RP is quite fun, atleast sometimes. you start off as a recruit, gather weapons and get in a vehicle and battle out in a decently large battlefield. fun sometimes yet not all the time.


JailRP is another one where you are either a guard or a prisoner, obviously enough as a guard you guard and make sure the prisoners aren't doing anything too suspicous and as a prisoner you work together to escape, or take over the prison.

if you know the secret areas there isn't much point in being a guard as prisoners will almost always win once the secret area is broken as they huddle in gathering akimbo pistols before killing each and every one of the guards.

there are "parkour" servers which has a bunch of unfair platforms you miraclely have to jump on with a promising admin gift at the end.

The best way to waste your life with your friends. Inside a broken racing map, an austistic lego / minecraft inspired world, sharks that walk on land, rocket spears, and treasure hunts mixed with bazookas, why have a life when you can play Blockland? 10/10

For those of you who like building things, and sharing them with the world, or your friends, this game is great! For those who don't really like building, this game is great! No seriously though the game by itself is quite basic and a little dull but there are thousands of addons on the internet that can be installed simply by dragging them into a folder. Plus there are so many servers with so many different games it is impossible not to find something fun to play!

Okay, I've been playing the game since around 2007, while having varying interest in the game up until the present day. From version 9 and up, it was a great game, nearly everyone ♥♥♥♥ their pants when they heard about a new update because it brought new content to the table. Now it's rarely updated with versions that would constitute themselves more as a hotfix rather than anything else. We've arrived at the end of blockland's development and Badspot has practically lost all interest in the game. Is this a bad thing? For me, not really, seeing as there are always modders and mapmakers ready to enhance the game's experience. Let me tell you, there are many mods out there to suit your tastes, so I hope you'll never be bored with the different possibilities. As far as creativity goes, you can go all out and push the limits of the game if you have to. It's basic lego building but with the ability to not go out to your local toys r us and dropping 30+ on a set of legos. You can also play mini-games and other stuff in these worlds that you build.

So to make things brief, the game is great. Go ahead and pick it up, it's only ~$10, try it out. If you don't like it, you didn't waste much.

Wow. I never actually thought that I'd see a building game that got my attention. The grahpics are amazing, the animations are appealing. But, I have to be honest, the community is just..terrible. Depending on who it is, or where he/she is from, it doesn't make a make a big change or impact on the community. But, appart from that, on single-player its actually pretty peaceful. You can make ideas for your server that you're "going" to make, or just have fun freebuilding. Basically, this game is similar to minecraft but with a different building style. I thought you might want to read this before you actually get into the game, so you have a little notion of what you're doing. The building style uses the Numpad keys, 123456789 and 0, the Numpad keys move the brick to where you want it to go, without clicking somewhere and it goes. Overall-review: 9/10. I like the game, but the community just bad. But, I have not listed all the details about Blockland, you can read about it in different reviews. The one "A.W.E.S.O.M -4000" posted is a little more helpful. Thank you for your time.

I used to play this game back in 2008 and I have to say things have changed.
im very displeased that the creators got rid of maps, and their should be a workshop to use the addons. in 2008, the addons were acquired through a website, and now that its here on steam, the workshop should be implemented.
Now i won't drone on about the old days of this entertaining game, but i'd love to see this game be revived and the problems listed fixed.
All in all, fun game but needs a workshop and maps brought back, thanks.

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.

Ok il be perfectly honest I played this game years ago
And I seriously loved it
But I bought it agian and VERY quickly did I feel money was wasted
And now I regret it
The game praises itself on being a game that you can do anything at all. But to be honest?
It seems like a watered down version of Gmod
Only fun modded and even modded it just makes you wonder what am I doing?
