Thief on the server

Post by miniwargaming » Mon Mar 10, 2014 9:00 am

I sent this out as an email a minute ago:

Hello everybody,

I am sad to announce that we definitely have a thief on our server. All of my diamonds (over 100) have gone missing, as well as 8 diamonds in the chest outside my house in the village.

I know this is not a glitch.

Unfortunately I have to say that unless I find out who did this, this could end up ruining the whole thing for me. I can't stand the idea of having thieves or people who just want to destroy things on our server.

If the one responsible does not come forward, then I will probably be forced to remove anybody I do not fully trust. There is a short list of players that I can say I fully trust (i.e. those that have contributed a lot, and that I have had a lot of interaction with).

If you are responsible, or if you know who is responsible, please tell me ASAP.

Either way please reply by emailing me at matthew@miniwargaming.com, and please give me reason to believe it wasn't you.

Matthew

Could this be the same person who stole my armour?

Is there a way we can setup logging on the server to attempt to catch this person? I have not noticed anything on my side missing but I don't have a lot of high end items either, the Hobbit Hole is rather empty still:(

This is sad news.

All I can say here is I would not take anything from someone elses chest. As a new person to the server im sure the new people are getting the closer look here. I've only mined about 12 diamonds so far and made a pick axe.

I believe there are ways to see peoples inventory if they have not hid them.

I just found this.

"Find the playername.dat file of the specific player. Then open that with a file editor such as invedit. Hope that helped! "

Well I tried to login tonight and can't get in. I assume new players are no longer white listed. Hopefully inventories can be checked and we can be cleared.

Have you considered using plugins like Lock Chest? essentially you place a sign with your name on it on your chest, and it prevents people from accessing or destroying chests to get at their contents. TnT and Creepers cannot destroy the chests either.

If you dont already know, there are Xray packs/plugins that allow players to see through non mineral blocks so they can see all the minerals and mine right to them without having to search as they normally would.

These are issues I had to resolve on my servers with bukkit plugins. It really ruins the vanilla experience.




I havent had a chance to get onto the server yet. still trying to resolve my computers video card problem. I bought a new card for it after the last one crashed but now it wont boot. So, still troubleshooting that.

Our thief seems to have a sense of humor - or they needed a couple ladders. Whoever it is took three pieces of ladder off the middle of the ladder run to my base. It's in a tunnel in the nether so no creeper or ghast possible.

Annoying. Had to go back and craft three pieces of ladder to get home.

I'm with Vass, if you have a thief use Lock Chest, we had it on our last server and it was pretty effective, its either that or hide your chests behind redstone torch activated secret doors and such that only you can find. Or do the cool thing and build your entire base beneath the landscape, with one of them 2x2 completely hidden doors, that way, people tend to not find your base ever, unless they are tunneling.

I love making those doors xD Oh so sneaky. On a Tekkit Server I littered the map with secret bunkers linked with teleporters and just appeared in peoples homes from no where, most enjoyable

We still have a thief on the server.

Just logged on today to find a stack of mossy brick, some note blocks and some red stone missing from my chests in the town.

Needless to say I'm not happy, not only has this ruined a possible video i had planned but i was already short on resources to begin with.

I forgave the first time stuff was taken from me, but this time has made me really annoyed. >=[

Another load of iron had gone missing. This time they didn't even bother covering their tracks. Half my house had been dug up, and my secret entrance destroyed. This is REALLY starting to annoy me.

I think that because before some things went missing now people are becoming slightly more paranoid.. I know this because I am! I think someone has stolen something and I then find it after :) Be sure to have a good look around before we all jump to conclusions - I would be hard pressed to point a finger of blame at any individual on the server. Except Sham.. that guy is just shifty *shivers*
