uh, thanks

I think that any Free TC server will be gone and the TC hacker is going to be banned (because of the credit)


#770

Unfortunately, this won’t be the case. But hey! Atleast they’ll be gone!


#771

I’m assuming the “worst” ones will just quit the game.


#772

Yeah.


#773

What he said


#775

Tracking this would create a hackable value like TC, what could be done is ads instantly equalling credit e.g. 1 ad for 4 hours of credit. It would have to be four hours on that server meaning there’s no middle value. But then again, people would still be able to spam adverts and it would reduce the positive effect of the update.


#776

Dave still gets money whether adverts are spammed or not

But I think the damaged caused by hacked cloud servers is easier to fix with full IAP, but I do like ads for credit


#777

Is it possible to migrate a server into a single player game?


#778

No, probably not in 1.7


#779

@Bickie @Gaareth It is possible! Copy the world files over and open the blockheads app!


#780

Server into single player? I think Bickie means cloud, which currently is not possible.


#781

Ohh, not possible unless you get the world files.


#782

Yep, which Dave isn’t currently sending to people.


#783

Dave ought to let people migrate their world, it’s not just TC hackers that are losing out here, that should definitely be a thing

A quick idea that could help solve the issue of F2P people being unable to start servers up - maybe there could be a community run idea centre where these people can post their server ideas and monthly they are voted on, and the favourite one gets to have somebody start it up with 7 days credit.


#786

What happens after the 7 days?


#787

Then other people’s donations have to keep the server up. Which will happen if it’s a good server.
