Quote from: omelet on Jul 04, 2021, 06:38 PMNone. Stop wasting your time and money on other servers that are going to die within two weeks and focus on improving survival/the servers you already have.This is a bad mentality, and as Doggggeh said it we own the machines our servers are hosted on, so adding more costs nothing. Most importantly however, Minecraft is (and unless something crazy happens will continue to be) a sinking ship in popularity and we cannot have long term sustainability if we just give up and don't even try to to get a foothold in other games. Also I can tell you we heavily focus on current servers and it can only do but so much considering the sort of audience we cater to (there is very small interest in vanilla survival anymore). Other games and trying new things is the way if we wanna be around for quite a while (we do).
Quote from: TrojanKitty on Jun 24, 2021, 09:03 AMI have had a few ideas before, these include:
Terraria and/or Starbound would be fun
I like the space exploration/factory game ideas
There is another game called StarMade which is pretty cool, it's like Minecraft but with spaceships. It's been quite some time since I've played it and I don't know how it's developed but it's pretty cool.
Something like CSGO would be fun.
Or that lite modded pack I suggested; something that has very minimal expansion and hobbies/logisitics for added adventure, tech, magic, combat, etc.
(Ceddy actually responded to this one, forgot his response but I already put it here so I'll include it anyway)

Quote from: sommergirl41 on Jun 24, 2021, 03:15 AMu guys say factions, beg for it, play for a week, then it dies, and the process repeats.
Quote from: jasper_Fritz on Jun 03, 2021, 01:06 AMBrad yore an oily creamcakeI never responded to this so thank you for the suggestions.
now this is all going to be about factions
People said they were disappointed the first 'map' back in May 2020 ended so early. Personally I would agree, we should have a poll/announcement about how long we would want resets to last ahead of time, but we shouldn't set it in stone either because having a firm end date only demotivates people to play.
I think the reset should be 3-4+ months long as having it last only weeks leads to people being burned out towards the end. There should be enough time to make a faction, be competitive, get destroyed, be pissed off for a couple weeks and then come back
to get your revengeand get the floor wiped with you again.
I don't think 15 man factions are really with the times, 10 players is a more reasonable number. 8 was low last time but im glad to have a debate.
-Events would be an awesome way to add PvP and encourage people NOT to sit at 20/20 Power at all times. One idea we've talked about is Glowstone Mountain (All-You-Can-Mine Glowstone, PvP For control over ~30 minutes) although I think the plugin is private, meaning we can't use it. some kind of event would be cool
-You could add a small area in spawn (or a warp) where The faction on top of /f top gets to build a shrine, resetting weekly or on 2-3 different days.
-Prot 5 Armor should be decided by a poll. We would also need an agreed-upon method of distribution for p5, i.e. will it be in the shop, will you get it for winning an event, will there be a limited number available, etc. Maybe 3 sets of p5 in the world?
-Have a functioning economy instead of the banana republic Evan thinks he can get away with apparently. Going to need sections for brewing, ores, food/farming, mob drops?, blocks,
-Give new joining players a short grace period (hours or a day) where they cannot be killed in pvp as long as they dont engage in pvp themselves. This would allow new players to not get destroyed instantly by someone named Emma
-Remove TNT 100% droprate on spawners- lower to 80% so that People cant skirt the FEE when they want to pick one up; fee should be increased as well
-Make sure spawners still DON'T stack
-Add fantasy plugins. ELITEMOBS was cool. Headshot sounds could be cool, fully customizable bow-headshot messages, damage, effects, armor reduction, etc.
Other suggested plugins:
Health bars: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/bukkit-plugins/health-bar
Head Drops: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/bukkit-plugins/dropheads
Weeping Angels Mod (Boss Mobs; appeal to geeks like tow?): https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/tardisweepingangels/
-STEVECO REPAIR!!!! I want to be able to permanently repair my god axe with inappropriate symbols on it for free! also it used to be a donator option?
-Bring back /Market mail
(Genuine question, do you think we can have it back If it only allowed potions, food, etc? and was 1 page of Market Mail?)
Using /Market Send to give potions to teammates before TPing/Warping/Raiding was a GAME CHANGER, and made PvPing flow better, allowed you to be more creative because no need to return to base, and it was more rewarding if you're able to stay in the world for a long time without warping out. Obviously it was broken to store all your items, BUT, if there is a config to allow a limited number of items and disallow armor/books/rare items in general, then I believe 100% we should re-implement it.
- SLimfun. Ppl liekd it
Please feel free to add more amazing work for evan to do, I mean suggestions!
Quote from: antidotelul on Jun 01, 2021, 06:15 AMfeels like there needs to be a more hands on staff team for factions.I agree with this as well, for transparency, we started a change in handling things near the end of last season where cheating bans were handled privately unless the situation was a public scenario that specifically required a public response (as people were constantly getting harassed over bans at the time) so that if someone did decide to make their ban public knowledge any resulting consequences would be on them. As well at the same time we established new banning protocols regarding ban duration/when an unban is allowed. Also if you have any specific situations of cheating that you know of that were never dealt with could you please dm me to refresh my memory? I'd like to make sure that doesn't happen again.
lots of unneeded drama that escalated to personal shit for no reason.
people being banned for no reason (lol)
people being both accused and exposed for cheating yet nothing was done
Quote from: Magnet on May 31, 2021, 06:33 PMTo be honest, I can't remember what things I disliked about the previous season of Factions. However, I just want it to be even more thrilling and exciting. See if you can find ways to make raiding and defending bases more fun. Overall, I think the thrill and adrenaline rush of Factions is what gives it its charm.I've already got a couple of ideas of making pvp more fun, still unsure on raiding/defending.

Quote from: mjoll9 on Apr 15, 2021, 09:01 AM100% agree with this! Survival isn't popular anymore, gotta go through different avenues to expand which in turn will help survival as well.Quote from: Towelie on Apr 14, 2021, 11:23 AMI think minigames seems to be the big thing nowadays, bedwars etc. When the minigames world opens I think advertising the hell out of that might bring new players, especially if it's not just your average minigames that are everywhere or atleast a little different (maybe something that people can do on their own?). Survival unfortunately ain't it anymore, but advertising our other servers and bringing a playerbase to those could help increase survival's as well.Quote from: mjoll9 on Apr 14, 2021, 11:20 AMI'm pretty sure a decent chunk of remaining players, especially older ones, only stick around for the content plugins like pyrofishing/mining/slimefun. If those were to go I think you'll see a dip in players.Then clearly we won't do that, but... Tell us what you think would help. Our playerbase kinda dipped a lot now and we need to be appealing to newer players too, so maybe give feedback from that perspective too?
Quote from: Chill2000 on Apr 15, 2021, 01:07 PMAgree with this too, survival has never really felt like actual survival to me personally because (especially compared to my experience with factions over the years) everything feels extremely easy/no effort to obtain, largely in part to the economy being broken, most people having fly so there's almost no risk of death, as well as now a days mending existing so you can make one set of tools and you never have make another again (although obviously as a core feature that's not something we can really control, of course). It just feels to me like the only thing that's any effort to grind for/obtain at all is the pyrofishing upgrades. But personally I find that really tedious and you can only stand in one spot and fish for so long before it gets boring.Quote from: Ranger_113 on Apr 15, 2021, 01:59 AMSomething I think we should do with the next update/reset is increase price on the overall economy. Increasing values for all ores, wood, and such. I mean think about it, diamond are like 1,200 emp at the EMP (I think) and the first arriving guest gets iron tools, and 5,000 emp. They can already buy 3-4 diamonds plus they already have the tools. There isn't much "surviving" as if your getting the whole point of the game handed to you within the first time you join in. If we increase the economy, the whole economic system will (in my opinion) function much better.This is a really good point, changing the economy will be really difficult however maybe nerfing the start kit is a good start? Maybe just include food a couple torches and a wooden axe or something?
