Bees are a large local area, the same as magic. The rainmaker is a server wide effect.

You haven't happened to build your house in a rain forest? Apparently those biomes will make it rain very often.

Default Removing Modular Force Field System (MFFS) from Mindcrack server

This weekend, we will be removing the Modular Force Field System (MFFS) mod from Mindcrack. As far as we can determine, this is not a popular mod and its purpose sort of goes against the community aspect of our servers. Our testing has also shown that it can be a huge CPU hog.

If you do use it and have arguments against removing it, speak now in this thread before we use it.

[UPDATE 22/2/13: Removal now suspended]

Hurt no? Make it near impossible to do certain tasks? Oh yeah.

For just over 2 real time hours now, it has either been night time or raining, and even then it's been raining much of the night too. I could actually sit around and time it, but there is something up with this server where the rain is far more excessive than other servers.

Making it near impossible to do anything bee related.

I'd like to request a new Myst world. Standard terrain generation, but with no weather.

What can we do with our harvested formicium? Can we trade it in for equivalent goods?

also have to consider that rain impacts solar generation, which impacts a lot of things a player might want to be doing (like working outside with bees, or having electricity).

I've half a mind to pop on for a few hours and time how often in rains in that timeframe for each day/night cycle...

Certainly put forward a similar rarity item / ore / crop and the admins will discuss it.

Then clearly it isn't bees causing it, as we get it all across the server


The rain does have quite a bit of impact.

It affects solar (standard solar does not work in the rain, advanced solar does, but is slower)
It affects mobs (hostile mobs will spawn during the day in rain)
It affects bees (some people {like me} are trying to do stuff with bees, who won't work in the rain)
It's noisy (not everyone has underground houses and can thus avoid hearing it - sometimes it is so loud and annoying it gives me a headache and hinders me hearing players in mumble.)
It's laggy (some players experience more lag when it rains.)

Fair enough some rain is good - but as others have pointed out, when you're playing for a long time on the server, you notice that it really does go on for DAYS. It is too much.

Unfortunately it also seems there is nothing we can do about it by way of server settings...
