Adds a simple player whitelist. Any player names not found in the whitelist are denied access to the server.
Forked from ShadowNinja's original White List.
- Code: MIT
Whitelist can be updated by editing whitelist.txt in the world directory or by issuing the following in-game commands. The ban privilege is required for issuing chat commands.
The whitelist.txt file is reloaded whenever a player attempts to log on. So it can be edited without the need to restart the server.
/whitelist [<command> <name>] - Manages the whitelist. - Without parameters: displays all whitelisted names - parameters: - command: - query: checks if a name is whitelisted - add: adds a name to whitelist - remove: removes a names from whitelist - name: name of player
whitelist.enable - Enables/Disables denying access to users not on the whitelist. - type: bool - default: true whitelist.message - Message displayed when access is denied. - type: string - default: This server is whitelisted and you are not on the whitelist.
- Minimum Minetest version: 5.0.0
- Depends: none
- Optional depends: none
Essential for closed communities
This mod is very useful for closed communities (for example in a educational context). It works perfectly and the text file is easy to manage and integrate. Thank you for making this!
Simple to use
A must have for private servers. This mod has more features and better documentation than others I tried.
Useful for WIP servers
I am going to use it on my WIP server which allow admins and builders to join. I will use this mod on it.
This review is more about the nature of the mod, rather than the mod quality itself.
Most of us don't have many people joining our servers anyways, it seems silly to make it even more restrictive. However, possibly someone out there may have a purpose for this mod.
