FTB is bullshit

    So I decided I was going to wander out to where SOL is and start playing MC again. I packed up my stuff and started walking (long ass walk). I get about halfway there and hit quicksand... something I did not even know existed in the game and even if you can dig yourself out ( have no idea) I guess you cannot do it without a shovel because I was trying and got nowhere. Suffice it to say I was pissed since I play the game very casually and vanilla (do not use any of the mod content) and died to something that should not be part of the game in the first place. So I respawn and figure I will at least see if I can recover anything (I am no mood whatsoever to start from scratch and had a full inventory of supplies) and after a very short walk I just die. There was no warning in time for me to do anything but die from some bullshit security towers. How about instead of having stupid insta kill features that just screw over someone who does not know what to look for you just have some goddamn world guard? Fuck this fucking mc server.

    Done venting now.

    As far as I know, Nac is the only on who uses the MFFS system, which is only on when he's off, so you may have walked too close, and I do think it is stupid, the MFFS doesn't give out warnings.

    The problem is that worldguard doesn't protect againt half the mods in the game. It only locks wooden chests, and does jack all if someone uses something like a portal gun to remove blocks, etc, etc.

    It's just as big a pain in the ass for us as it is for you, if not more.

    You can't get hit by his MFFS unless you're actually INSIDE his base... which I don't think you can do without hacks - when he turns it on there's a solid wall around it with no openings.

    There's a few more folks that have MFFSes now, perhaps it was one of theirs?

    No idea who it belonged to, but my understanding was a warning is supposed to appear and it pings you for a few damage at a time. I hopped up on land from the water and the "warning" popped up just in time for me to instantly die, which really confused me.

    By default when set to kill the MFFS will only warn you 2 blocks further than the kill radius. You can install the same cheap as shit upgrade cards to expand the warning range. Whoever it was didn't do the simple respectable thing. My MFFS will kill you if you get right next to my tower which is only like 15 blocks diameter. You will start to get warned as soon as you enter my 50x50. Just common courtesy imo.

    Ya I got killed by someones MFFS today and lost my good gear. I was trying to look for oil (because last server restart messed up my tank and removed all 4000 ish buckets) and saw someones base as I flew south from the spawn then without warning I was just killed and lost my stuff...

    Do you have coordinates so we can investigate and get this person to fix their MFFS?

    As far as refunding the items, I've taken care of that part already, but yea this MFFS stuff is so far out of control it's silly.

    It is just south of the spawn. Lava was awesome and gave me back the items I lost. :D I did some walk ups after I lost my stuff and it looks like it is just the 2 block warning. If like me you have a slower computer it is almost impossible to stop in time. I was having a hard time getting close via walking.

    WHen I set up my MFFS, if I ever get to that point, I will desire some help setting it up, as I don't want this to happen.

    MFFS boundary rules will be drafted shortly to ensure this crap stops ASAP.

    Well I"d have no idea what I'm doing so still would need help, so regulations and a guide on setting up the MFFS would be nice.
