Thank you for all your contribution to the community of active and budding modders/scriptors and admins. I did have a question what are your terms of use on your LiB mod? Is it ok to grab this and modify for ones own server?

The server files have not been uploaded.

Modding tools are in the works, when they are out I'll release the mod's server files.

I did not find this "stuff turns into other stuff when you lift it up" (log turns into a bench, etc) thing on the bug report forum (correct me if I'm wrong), so it is possible that is a mod issue, could you please look into it? Thanks.

With the new fortification modules and containers, a wild guess would be it's probably due to the custom item ids being updated in the core file vs the mod's item list.

I don't know, but this problem has been present since the patch that put the new kind of animals in, so your explanation is highly probable.

I'm aware of the patch, problem is that the more overlapping changes of the official patches and my mod exist, the longer it takes me every time to re-merge them all. Right now I'm looking at well over an hour (perhaps two) of reviewing changes, merging and testing them at the test server. To be honest I can't afford that right now due to other responsibilities.

Another problem is me not having time lately to extensively play the game myself. As the devs rebalance and extend the game, their updates unbalance my previous balancing changes, and I don't have the time right now to review the new balance of combat and crafting after updates.

Concerning this server specifically, there have been complaints about too little GM activity, which I completely understand. A problem here is that I don't really know anyone on the server well enough who is both active enough and who I trust with GM status. I don't want the server be ruined by cheating either.

Another issue is that with the new fortification modules, I imagine that most people at some point want to redo their cities.


We should discuss what to do with this mod and this server. I understand many of you have hundreds of hours of work in this server, so I won't just shut it down permanently without consulting with you first.

In my view it's becoming pretty clear that I can't maintain this mod and corresponding server(s) on my own anymore.

Now, I'm lately working on something that will make modding drastically easier and faster. If it were up to me, I'd release it's first version first (which is almost done), and then gather a group of modders to do a reboot of 'Life is Balanced'. All the code and files would be published in a source control repository (like Mercurial, Git or SVN). Other modders would be given 'commit' rights as well, and together we'd review the balance and keep expanding the mod, with at least one public beta/test server. Anyone could run their own 'Life is Balanced' server, and the group of modders would release proper server update files after patches as well.

I understand your status, RL always should come before games.

Me (and perhaps most of us) do not want to see the server gone or wiped due to the work implemented as you mentioned. I hope there is a solution good for all of us.

Personally I think it would be best to update the server now, as I doubt the developers will make an other update till new year (holidays and all), so people can play around with the new containers, and work on that tool you mentioned then. As I said, this is my sole opinion.

However, if the new patch will be implemented into your server much later (I could not really determine that from your post), could you at least start up the server with the old version? Some of us have backups from the old client, so we could play and make progress with our base until you update the server and the mod.

I am astounded you were able to keep up with the release schedule and stay functional at such an early stage of development. I think everyone on your server will have to understand that server/mod wipes will happen at this early stage. Please update if you do develop a team to further the modding community as you have done so far.

Sertver has been down since mid December 2014. The mod author has little time to attend to the updating of the mod with new vanilla updates coming out, and a lot of issues happened due to this. The mod and the server itself was not updated since december.

any chance of someone getting a hold of these files and updating it? as well as making them public to use on other hosted servers? I would greatly appreciate the ability to use this mod on my server !!

Since i am not a modder I cannot do it myself :( at least not till i go to college for programming :P
