Quote from: Lou671998 on Sep 20, 2020, 12:02 PMDoes this also mean that the W2 reset will come sooner to allow for a 1.17 world?
No world 2 reset is planned as of right now

Hey guys,
The Manager+ team have decided to push forward the world 1 reset to November 4th - 45 days from now. We decided that waiting for 1.17 would be too much as we have no idea when it's set to be released.

Once again, you can request a build move using this form if no one is available online.

Thanks

Quote from: _Afishingmike on Sep 19, 2020, 06:26 PManother idea i had; making a vetworld. After the last major reset, I remember a staff (dont remember who) saying something about adding vet world again after 1.14 and we still haven't gotten one.
Towelie says this will likely never be a thing again, sorry!

Quote from: Lou671998 on Sep 19, 2020, 03:19 PMI still feel like we're too harsh on redstone, and it always comes back to lag. its definitely nice to finally have the LWC implementation with minecarts now, makes smelters and sorters much more streamlined.

Is there any way to track piston limits directly? without needing for staff to place them. It can get rather irritating to have to ask staff to place pistons if you're building anything that uses more than 10.

Pistons/slimeblocks are a huge part of redstone, and its a shame that they're flat out banned in any sort of crop farm. MCMMO + fortune makes these farms almost obsolete anyway, so it would be nice if we found a way to actually let people use pistons in semi-automatic farms.

With auto sorters and hopper counts, we have a cap of 100 hoppers for sorters. with the most efficient sorter design possible and no leeway for inputs and outputs, that's 50 items, which makes sorters only viable for bulk storage, and nothing more. We can significantly reduce the lag of hoppers just by placing a block on top of them (stops the check of input from above) so It would be nice to see this reviewed.

Building on from the last one, the region count of 200 basically forbids having more than a single large machine in a region. If you own a large smelter and sorter, you don't have enough hoppers for both in the same region.


Finally, as Mike said, It would be nice to be able to get drops of the rarer mobs more easily (especially since slime farms are banned). perhaps we could have a built in drop rate increase? The emp price seems pretty hefty on these items as well so I can't see why anyone would ever buy them directly from emp, especially if you need large numbers of them (slime blocks are 500 emp each).

That's all I can think of really. I'm not staff so I can't exactly suggest in depth ways of changing these things. Just a few thoughts :)

I have opened up a discussion with the manager+ team about the possibility of this and so far the only one we can consider changing is whether or not to allow pistons in semi-auto farms, the other 2 queries (not needing staff to place and monitor pistons & increasing the hopper limit) have been denied because we unfortunately can't trust all players to follow the rules on pistons and redstone contraptions without certain restrictions. The hopper limit is not what it is to make players' lives hard, it's to prevent lag being generated.

Feel free to suggest any other ideas you may have!

Quote from: Lou671998 on Sep 19, 2020, 09:15 PMI believe we used to have Elite+ or legend+ place their own pistons? Any idea why this was removed?
This will have been removed because we need to monitor what people are using pistons for so they can't create awful lag machines etc. This won't be changing any time soon because otherwise we'd have to manually go and find every piston to check it's being used legally.

Quote from: _Afishingmike on Sep 18, 2020, 08:31 PMooo i have a few ideas!

1.If you can, re-add elite mobs to sw. I really liked that plugin and was pretty sad when I found out it was taken away :(

2.Make a staff/server ran spawner that has more mob spawners (magma cubes, creepers, etc.). Many mob drops are harder to get than others, I think it would be nice for them to be easier to get

3.I dont know if you already do this, but pay the evh for event prizes. More people would play events if the prizes were over 25k I feel, so maybe if you gave them an allowance it would be easier to get players to play the events

Those are just some of my thoughts, ill probably add more lol
Hello, first off thank you for the suggestions!
1. EliteMobs was removed because of a poll that revealed most people didn't enjoy it. I am still bringing this up with Tow & co. to find out whether or not it'll be brought back but can't give you an update just yet.
2. This has been decided against for multiple reasons, the main of which being that it takes away from the survival experience and in doing so makes going to the nether more pointless.
3. EventHosts do get paid money :)

Edit: EliteMobs will not be re-added, heard back from Tow and he would not like to deal with the complications it brought with it.

Can you elaborate on this please? Do you mean more plugins like /murder or do you mean more EventHost hosted, built events in world 3?

Hi Lucky,
Your friend was banned by Lady_Carissa for ban evading so I have notified her of this unban request.

Hello Survivalists!

This week's weekend event will be brought to you by myself and Autpek! This will be on Sunday the 6th at 10AM EST/3PM BST.
We will be hosting 5 rounds of anvilluck with prizes of 100k each round, and we will not be allowing repeat winners.

Anvilluck, as I'm sure you are all aware, is a death event so be sure to put all of your valuables somewhere safe before joining us!


Here is the countdown timer for the event, we look forward to seeing you there! ;D

Wow congrats Sommer, looking forward to seeing another 6!
PS. Well done on getting into school and good luck with everything :heart:

PROTIP:
You may want to save your votes for the day until the time of the event as clues will be earned by voting. :D
18
A lot of other players, including me, are saving up vote tokens for things like /fly and a beacon, so if this was to be removed I'd like to see some kind of compensation for the progress made by players as most put a lot of time into their collection and some even a lot of money. I also think it'd be bad news to remove /voteshop as I think this would be pretty detrimental to how many votes our server gets.
19
Grats! Hope you've enjoyed stealing all my money :heart:

A reminder also that if you have any other suggestions at any time you can also PM your community ambassadors @ Chill2000#2852, Doggggeh#0192 and UnicornOnACob#1941 ;D

Fr though guys can you post things other than huge unreadable quote chains? A staff member has already asked you to stop and it's kind of just spam :/

This event has been pushed back to SUNDAY the 14th due to something coming up for both Chill and myself, to compensate for this last minute change we've decided to allow everyone an extra 30 minutes to build, so you'll have 90 minutes in total. We're extremely sorry for this last minute change and hope you can still make it. <3

Hey everybody!

This Saturday at 9PM BST/4PM EST, Chill2000 and I will be hosting buildcomp... with a twist ;). Instead of a theme to build to, we'd like you to follow a block palette we've created for the event. These blocks will only be given to you on the night.
Each team (of no more than 4 players each) will have 60 minutes to build whatever they like following this palette and the prizes will be as follows:

  • 1st place - 300k and a playerhead (per team member) of your choice
  • 2nd place - 200k
  • 3rd place - 100k

Here is the timer for the event. We hope to see you there and look forward to what you come up with!

EDIT: this event has been pushed back to 9PM BST/4PM EST on SUNDAY the 14th due to something coming up for both Chill and myself, to compensate for this last minute change we've decided to allow everyone an extra 30 minutes to build, so you'll have 90 minutes in total.

Quote from: sommergirl41 on May 14, 2020, 09:06 PMpetition to bring back weekly SFT news. someone get a staff member to do it

The problem was always finding newsreaders.
just have each manager or admin do it, just rotate through them each week. @SashaLarie  PLEASE PLEASE
You can't force people to expose their voices and do something they're uncomfortable with just because they have a high rank, I don't see any reason why this has to be a staff duty and not something players just volunteer for.
