Add JourneyMap Server Plugin to the Nerd.nu servers

Recommended Posts

For myself and perhaps others that use JourneyMap Client to have a minimap up + keep an overworld map up to date, I believe it would be beneficial to install the JM Server plugin among the Nerd.nu servers. Primarily the function of this plugin is to generate unique id's for the worlds that are running on the server(s), so that the Journey Map clients can tell the difference between P, C, or even Lobby.

The present behaviour is that Journey Map will overwrite any existing mapped areas when visiting similar coordinates in other servers, if the server transfer was done internally or through the lobby rather than quiting the game and using a different server link. 

In the future, the plugin also promises to be able to have server-side restrictions of mapping features in the clients. so it will be easier to ensure no one is doing any "accidental" xraying.

Hello Ethaksus, thank you for taking the time to put forward your suggestion here regarding the JourneyMap Server plugin. Padmins will be hosting a team meeting this weekend to discuss a range of tasks, suggestions, and needs. While we already plan to discuss your recent approved client mods request, we'll make sure to add your latest suggestion to our agenda too.

We'll aim to respond back here once we've got together! If in the meantime anyone wishes to post feedback, we'll keep an eye out for it and factor it into our discussion.

Is there a static thread somewhere for mod requests? I imagine it happens often enough that such a place would be handy for you?

In terms of suggestions, we encourage the use of this forum or the subreddit if you'd like to open up a discussion. For people who want to fire out a suggestion that sits with us, where our team puts out a response then using /suggestion-box on p.nerd.nu will leave a suggestion there and we will respond to them here.

Having the idea written down in one of these areas will remind us to address it. However, you're welcome to chat with us elsewhere too in addition to having your idea written down somewhere if you wanted more of a private discussion.

We wanted to get back to your initial request with an update since we've held our meeting.

For the moment, we're not looking to add the JourneyMap Server plugin to the roster primarily due to the fact that it exists within a beta stage. We would prefer to avoid installing something which may potentially be unstable and subject to frequent change. Should this leave the beta stage then we're open to revisiting this suggestion.

Right now though, we do recommend considering alternative minimap mods which are a little more capable of differentiating between multiverse worlds and servers, such as VoxelMap. Voxelmap from my own experience is not perfect but when it gets the world wrong it can be told which world is correct with a few button presses.
