I really appreciate your reply and info on this, Bob. I tried asking around some more and definitely doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get any restrictions lifted. For one, big Navy blocks video game sites so even if I could convince anyone that Total Miner Forums is a safe site, they won't be able to do anything about it on the ship. Also, I'm definitely not allowed to plug any of my own personal stuff into the network. I just decided to go through the forum and save some tutorial videos and PDFs of tutorial threads and hope that'll get me through the next few months. Again, I am very grateful for the help.

General Discussion / The War on Total Miner

I was out to sea for the last 3 months. With no wi-fi and 12 hour (sometimes 16 hours) work days, 7 days a week, I needed some Total Miner to help relax after a hard day of work. So getting back into Total Miner after a long period of time, I found that there was much to learn and while the in-game tutorials help me understand the very basics, I wanted to get back on the TM Forums to read other people's tutorials for things such as scripts and behaviors and share my own insight and questions. I can use my ship's computer to access the internet (at speeds on par or slower than I remember dail-up being) but I am still limited by the ship's network restriction on "gaming" websites. Here's where the problem lies, when I try to access TM Forums, I get a message that this website is listed as a gaming website and gaming websites are blocked.

To find out why gaming sites are blocked by my Command (since "normal people" sites like Facebook and LinkedIn are accessible) I asked some of my buddies who work in that field. Basically, gaming websites are notorious for being riddled with ads and other things that eats up bandwidth. Understandable since there's over 5,000 people on board and there needs to be fair bandwidth usage. I would at least watch the YouTube tutorials but they ended up blocking that site also towards the end of our underway for bandwidth issues. Now, I don't know too much about interwebs stuff, but I can't imagine TMF being that big of a drain on bandwidth, especially when I consider that Facebook is bloated with ads and video streaming.

I have no problems accessing non-gaming related forums and even some obscure gaming websites. I hope someone here can help me find a way to access the Forums for when I go back out to sea. Maybe even change the listing of the site from "gaming" to something else? Maybe @bob can help? Again, I don't know too much on this stuff so any help here would be appreciated. I hope I posted this in the right spot and thanks for reading, guys.

Probably something to do with doing the best that you can but don't quote me on that.

Spoiler for Hidden Content:

That little road section looks comfy as funk. Nicely done.

Unless you're prepped and ready to find troll maps with very questionable mp3s in the background, it probably be better to deal with what we have.

I understand that you think you're looking out for other people, but the "people might troll with this content so it shouldn't be added" post is a terrible arguement. That logic could be applied to anything and, honestly, if people wanted to make stupid troll maps, the lack of custom music sure hasn't stopped them. It's simply the (small) risk you take whenever heading into multiplayer in these kind of games.

* A constructive post would be: "I think players might be able to troll with said content, how about adding an option to turn off custom music?"

I apologize if I came off sounding like a jerk. I hope you understand where I'm coming from.

I'm very glad to see the Total Miner PC release just in time for some Christmas day building fun. I really appriecate all the hard work Craig and this community (with their ideas and testing) has put into TM. Maybe not the "best" sandbox block builder out there but Total Miner certainly has it's own charm and direction, and, has became my one of favorite games of all time. Just like on the 360, I look forward to dumping many hours of my life into TM once again.

Long live Total Miner.
