Holy Cow BatFrog!
No! There is not a new mob in the game! But upon logging on to the production server, what did a behold but a colony sitting at spawn preventing me from doing anything except running through it.
I checked the configs for the mod and it appeared as if I had it set to make you go 2000 blocks out before placing the townhall or supply chest. This did work in the 1.11.2 version of the pack and the Minecolonies mod. I was informed by Raycoms the author of the mod that was technically a glitch and the settings are for the /rtp command.
Then I questioned, why was the spawn protection in the server.properties file not working and it turns out that in 1.8 Mojang made a change. If no one is assigned op at the time the server world is created, the spawn protection setting will be ignored. Creating an op later on will not enable it.
That explains the occasional spawn grief and player builds at spawn that I have detected in the last two years. Because sometimes I’m not op when I create server worlds. The setting should be enough!
So, yesterday I created “No Op Spawn Protection“. A mod that is installed server and client side that gives you one option in the config. The spawn protection setting from the server.properties file. Not sure what Mojang’s range for the protection was, but I gave you a range from 0 thru to 10,000. The mod will allow creative players to build within the protected area. I will be adding features to this mod as we progress in using it. I have to test if redstone circuits can be utilized as well doors and chests. And then later I’ll add blacklist/whilelist capability for objects. And I expect it’ll get tedious, so I’ll add /commands to allow configuring it while in the game.
Also, I took even more ownership of my fork of “Bad Wither No Cookie!” mod which is now known as “Bad Wither No Cookie! Reloaded“. And I might even begin porting it to the lower tiers such as 1.10.2, 1.9.4, 1.8.9, etc, because it now contains features the original mod author Droidicus never added. I added Thunder Silencing and Log Message Silencing.
