A change to server credit in 1.7


#594

I’m sad. In the wake of the new update, my favourite servers are down. I might just leave the game, at least on Multiplayer, until the update.

Until then, I agree with @TheBest1Ever 's idea about ads being worth 1/5th a day. Good idea.

And sure, eventually hackers will find a way to hack the IAPs. Nothing is untouchable. But there will be less or no script kiddies and customers of the TC dealers, only the really hardcore hackers. With intangible money, or virtual currency, somehow it feels (or in my case, felt) less like stealing. Of course, it still is stealing, but kids who don’t know what they are doing are less likely to steal £2.50/$2.50 for a server than 250 NetMoney (I just made this up for the sake of examples)

INeedPieUndercover has left the building. Thank you and good night.

Hackers can’t get into IAP as easily. The few worlds that do remain will be monitored, so if someone isn’t paying fairly, Milla will find out as there won’t be too many servers to watch, resulting in possibly legal action as that’s piracy
(I think)


#596

It is illegal to get IAPS for free, pretty sure.


#597

It’s illegal to get TCs free (except from mining and videos), but people still do it.


#598

The issue with TC was that it was all managed client side and easy to tamper with. With IAPs there will be a server side transaction making it harder to do and easier to catch the hacker trying to steal.


#599

May I get a definition of IAP? :slight_smile:


#600

It means In-app-purchase. Stuff you buy inside the app and pay via your itunes account or the android equivalent. Like the TCs in The Blockheads right now.


#601

Thanks, @Ronnie! Very appreciated.


#602

For anyone who still doesn’t get it (I found this analogy helpful)

Why don’t we see hackers everywhere with HD textures and Double Time? Because they are IAP which Apple monitors, and very few hackers can hack Apple
:+1:

My response:

-makes an ad for free time crystals-
Narrator: Do you pirate tc? Well stop your whining and begging for tc! Introducing… Videos for 20 tc! Watch videos all day long, and get thousands of tc soon enough! Even better, you won’t get in trouble with the boys upstairs! Use tc videos, NOW! Results for pirating tc may vary.


#605

Also it’s illegal to get IAP for free, I think.


#606

Yep, as bad as it is to pirate TC, IAP purchases are on a whole other level. It will take some team of hackers to get past that security, and if some day they do, there will be extreme consequences… extreme. IAP is beyond Dave and Milla’s control.


#607

You’d be sent to prison for piracy. Probably for a few years.


#608

Amazon, Apple, and Google are some of the biggest companies in the world. It would be absolutely foolish and stupid for someone to try and get past the IAP just to make a Blockheads cloud server.


#609

This is when i realizethat watching all of those ads i watched on my birthday are now going to slowly die in my pocket.


#610

No it won’t go to waste! You will need lots of tc for crafting especially for expert mode!


#611

Oh yeah thats true.


#612

Hold on…What if no one pays for a server. And I mean no one. After all, can’t you do like a LAN type thing with single player worlds?
Now, I know that this wont happen, but if very few people pay, what would happen. Also something that will not happen.


#613

There would be those servers that are made when all the others are full…

That would be creepy tho @VolcanoFlame


#614

No worries. :slightly_smiling_face:
