I'm looking for a mod that is like towny in every way except the way land claiming works. In towny you have to choose a set plot size in the config and thats it (this makes for Very Spread out towns if you want your players to have large plots because the path between the plots has to be the same size).
I was thinking if someone wrote a mod from scratch they could implement world guard in. the way it would work is someone ( a player could start a town with "/town new (name)" then they would get a specific tool (golden shovel or wood axe) and they could claim their Home block (town starting point) then from there on they could only claim land that is adjacent to other town claims. there would have to be a way for them to put specific plots up for sale so residents in their town could buy them, also a limit on how many blocks they can claim depending on members (configurable in a config or from in game with admin commands)
Then of course they would put in a Optional economy for the plugin, with daily taxes, for the town owner to be able to toggle fire, or fire spreading, mobs, pvp, etc, also to choose if they want building, switching (switched, buttons etc), using(flint and steal etc), and destroying. A way to allow town assistants to help develop the town, and there be different types of plots ex: resident (claimable / buy-able), shop plots, arena plots (pvp enabled), or custom plots in which they can choose to have mobs, fire, pvp, or other for use in special purpose situations such as a mob spawner in the town.
It would be a cool extra for there to be jobs implemented in to the plugin as well, where to get paid they would have to go to an NPC and trade them certain items depending on the job they are signed up for or something like that.
I think this would be a Very cool and Very popular mod if a developer made it and up kept it well, thank you for reading my idea and i hope to see a mod like this in the near future, The custom claims in the thing id like to see most!
