This is a description about the ROBOTS-server, which runs a game with the mods
The server with this game and map was online from 2016-0x until 2017-07.
See also ROBOTS_SKYBLOCK.
There is a 'live' tutorial-parcour about robots-programs, which can be reached via a teleporter near the spawn.

- To become a regular user, you need to have certain items in inventory at logoff.
- Read the messagebox "Olduser" at login for details !
- Beware: the server can shutdown on very short notice !
- So, unless you only want to look around, get that stuff quickly !
- With the given initial stuff, you can craft wooden tools.
- Note: you need a shovel for digging dirt,
- and a pickaxe to pickup a robot.
- But you can still cut trees without an axe.
- With the torches you can go mining in the public mine.
- The public smelting station doesn't require fuel.
- Look around, read signs.
- Don't poke around areas claimed by other people.
- The protectors can be set to teleport you to some location,
- some might be set up as traps, and land you in dangerous places, or prisons.
- To fend off mobs, get a steel-sword (or better).
- With wood- and stone-swords, it takes too long to kill monsters.
If you know what you're doing
(and lost no time to exploring, games, fending off other players, etc.)
you could set up a profitable automated farm within a day.
- See the demofarm how it can be done.
Also, the first part of the public mine (up to depth 200) is quite easy.
