The Great Smoothening
Title: The Great Smoothening
Adoption Index: 4.0
Amend rule 2.4 (“Precedence Between Articles”) by changing its title to “Precedence Between Instruments”, and by replacing its text with the following:
In a conflict between instruments, the conflict shall be resolved as follows:
If the instruments in conflict have unequal power, the instrument with the highest power takes precedence;
Otherwise, of the instruments involved which are articles of this Charter, the article appearing earliest in the Charter takes predecence;
Otherwise, the instrument adopted first takes precedence.
No change to this Charter can occur that would cause an article to directly claim precedence over this rule as a means of determining precedence. This rule takes precedence over any article that would permit such a change to this Charter.
Amend rule 5.3 (“Official Duties”) by appending the following paragraph:
An instrument can, as part of its effect, instruct an officer to take one or more actions. The officer must perform the actions in a timely fashion, once and only once per instruction, in the order the instructions appear in the instrument. The officer should publicly announce that the instructions have been completed after taking action.
Instruct the Space Master to create a backup of the game data.
Instruct the Space Master to remove the following categories of grids from the game:
- Grids belonging to players who have not logged in in two or more weeks,
- Grids more than 45,000 km from the Earth-like planet,
- All grids belonging to NPCs which are further than 1,000m from a player-owned grid, and
- Grids which, at the Space Master’s discretion, appear to be abandoned debris on the surface of any planet.
Instruct the Space Master to smooth the game’s voxels, by the following procedure:
Apply the following voxel cleanup settings to the game,
Setting Value Revert voxel materials yes Revert asteroids yes Revert with floating objects present yes Distance from player 0 m Distance from grid 100 m Voxel age 1 min
Observe an unoccupied area until the game removes voxel modifications,
Restore the trash removal settings to their original values,
Inspect two or more static grids on planets or asteroids to determine if they have been rendered inaccessible or unusable by this process, and
Restore the most recent backup if and only if a grid has been rendered inaccessible.
