Hi all,

Two factor authentication (2FA) has now been enabled on the hubs for everybody to use. This feature gives added security to your accounts in-case they are compromised by another party. Our current implementation uses the Google Authenticator APP which is available on the Google Play Store as well as the Apple App Store. To enable the feature, enter the lobby server (via relogging or /server lobby) and type /auth. You will be presented with instructions on how to activate 2FA.

Current options for the plugin are as follows:
  • /auth - Starts the authentication process
  • /auth off - Disables 2FA
  • /auth ipenable - Enables IP based authentication, you will only be asked for your code when your IP changes
  • /auth ipdisable - Disables IP based authentication

Here is what happens when you type /auth in our lobbies:
You'll be given instructions on how to stop the process, as well as installing the Google Authenticator app

Once the app is installed, you will be given a QR code to scan

The QR code is in the form of a map, open the app and scan it to create a new entry in your app

Once you have the scanned entry, you can proceed and enter your code

At this point your authentication is already enabled, and you can choose to enable IP-based authentication

We are searching for exceptional builders among the community to help us with this process. There are certain perks to being on the build team:
  • Access to the build server
  • In-game credit on the webstore
  • In-game [Builder] prefix
General requirements are as follows:
  • Ability to connect with us on our slack
  • Activity in TeamSpeak a huge plus
  • Comfortable collaborating with other builders

Hi all,

The iPvP forums have once again changed. We are now a standalone server and as such have separated the forums from Origins. Those who had accounts earlier in the year (January-February) should still have the same logins. Unfortunately the rest of you will have to create new accounts in order to submit content. For those of you who had posted staff applications on the previous forums, please feel free to copy them over to the Staff Applications forum.

We apologize for the inconvenience,
iPvP Administration
Hey folks

I'm going to make this quick, we see that the servers are down, and we're working on it, sorry the the inconvenience that this has caused you, and thanks for your patience.

Hello folks!

As most of you know, IPVP is now under new ownership, therefore meaning we are new to this servers setup and are still familiarizing ourselves with it all. Myself and @sainttx are currently the only two developers for the server and we'll be attempting to sort out all of these issues that we are receiving from you.

The problem with IPVPs current setup is that there was already a large amount of errors within the code given to us and we're having an incredibly difficult time attempting to piece together what we have managed to get from the previous developers. We do not have the most recent source code for the server, and all its errors/bugs were made apparent during the EOTW. Therefore we reverted back the builds to be exactly the same setup IPVP had running before the new ownership. The way IPVP had been developed was not made in a state where it is easily modifiable, basically the entire server was made in a way that it was reliant off one main project which has not been functioning well.

Before any small or simple changes / bug fixes can be done by either myself or @sainttx we have to pretty much rewrite the entire server to a point where it is actually somewhat maintainable. This will take us quite a long and unknown amount of time. Any issues on the server currently were issues on the server before we had took over ownership, things like hoppers/spawners having slow tickrates from what I can tell was a previous attempt to fix lag issues.

To sum everything up, we are working as hard as we can to fix the issues but please understand due to the servers current conditions we are unable to apply any patches. It may take us a few weeks to get the servers codebase to a point where we can actually start working on features and bug fixes for the server.

Thank you ever so much for understanding, we really appreciate the supportive and helpful community this server has and are doing everything in our power to make...
