Potentially Dangerous Mess-up with a plugin

Post by LordTomenon on 10/6/2014, 8:22 pm

Not completely sure if I should be posting about this, but I have a problem/glitch to report.

This problem is with the Veteran/$20 donor perk, DeathChest. When you die, the block you die on turns into a bedrock block with a sign on it, upon clicking which will give the items back to you and revert the block back to normal. However, if you die on a skull, it will turn into a normal skeleton skull and if you die on a block that has a sign on it/above it, the sign will turn into a blank sign. This poses a danger as one could easily use this glitch to get through deadbolted signs by killing themselves using fall damage on the block over which the sign is located, using another $20 donor perk /back to return to point of death, recollecting the items, then the deadbolt sign would be blank and thus allowing the thief to take from the protected chest or go through the protected door.

I apologize if I am not supposed to post this here, now, or at all, but I was urged to by another player and I would like to point out this problem.

It would be easy to see which donor did this and this would obviously result in that player's perks being removing and possibly further punishment. I'd like to think we can trust donors not to abuse this, especially as they'd just be rolled back and potentially be perma-banned.

Actually... it's not detectable. Tomenon tested this in-game for me and there was no record of him destroying the deadbolt sign. Zero fingerprints. The bedrock block itself causes the metadata (aka the sign text) in the deadbolt sign to be lost permanently until the sign is re-placed on the chest.

However Taccy is correct - any donor who is caught abusing this will be severely punished.

We will still have the logs of the chest/door interactions.

This is why its not that big of an issue. Only $20 donators/vets and higher have access to this plugin. They already have access to more destructive things. If we didnt trust them, they wouldnt have those perks. Besides like Taccy just said, core will record chest accesses. So its not that hard to figure out.
