This may sound like a rant, and it is. I posted a message recently that the darklands is broken, and that I unloaded it. It was crashing the server when people came near a specific place.
What I overlooked is that the darklands would be reloaded with the next restart. My mistake. But the real issue is that people went back into the darklands through nether portals despite being fully aware that it is supposed to be closed. Now I cannot track back through the file date which files of the map are broken since people who went in modified the map.
I discovered that this is an issue today since I wanted to delete the center of the darklands where I earlier identified the issue to allow people to retrieve at least the stuff that is further away from spawn. Now, since the files have been modified, I am not sure anymore which 2-4 of the 8 possible files around the center are the ones causing the issue. So the only solution now is to delete the darklands as a whole and generate a temp one since I do not want to do a trial and error by walking around and seeing which place causes the server to crash. It would inconvenience everyone, not only those who against general warning decided to stock stuff in the DL.
I would like to point out again that attempting to circumvent a block or barrier on the server KNOWINGLY is for me equal to hacking and should result in a ban. I do not really understand why people who participated in the last discussion about how to fix the issue would still go into the darklands and ruin a temp fix for everyone. Oh well.
