IP Ban List

rexxar

Allows banning of users and entire countries by IP address, or by Steam Group.

Countries are blacklisted by their 2 character ISO 3166-1 code one per line.

Also has an aggressive ban mode to help prevent users circumventing bans with VPNs or proxies.

How to get the most out of this plugin

Turn on Aggressive Banning: Any user banned by IP or Steam Group will have their Steam ID added to the game's internal ban list.

Turn on Track Ingame Bans: Any user banned ingame will have their IP address added to the IP ban list.

If you use both options and Steam Group banning, any member of a banned group will also be banned by Steam ID and IP address. Since Torch tracks who owns the copy of SE a client is using, they cannot use Family Share to bypass a ban. The only way to get around a Steam ID and IP ban is to purchase a new copy of SE and use a VPN, making it pretty costly for a bad user to evade bans.

Future releases will include a way to sync ban lists with other server admins, as well possibly a global ban list (details pending), and hardware tracking to even more permanently ban a particularly troublesome user.
