The Server has definatly turned into a crazy fun world! We have had loads of players join and have had pretty much full games Everytime it's open. So far everyone that has joined has gravitated towards a village that me and some other guys decided to turn into a town. This town is quickly becoming a large communtity with everyone joining in. We have even came up with some ambitious ideas of jobs, currency and shop systems for our town. Now Offcourse this doesn't affect the entire server but is just our own little way of having a RPG type community area. It has been a load of fun and I hope more of you eventually join!
After hours of math and balancing, I have finally created a fair currency system for the town (Not whole server) using minerals and without having to go into creative. Heres a basic sample of what the system is like
64 Coal = 32 Iron/Redstone
64 Iron/Redstone = 32 Lapiz
64 Lapiz = 16 Gold
64 Gold = 2 Diamond
64 Diamond = 8 Emerald
Now Offcourse I have converted it into smaller units as well but that was just the basic overview. This is the best balance to the system I could create using multiples of 64, which keeps everything even, without compensating for the percentage of a certain mineral within a world so this isn't perfect, but as close as I could get it. This now allows players to have a currency to go by within their shops which should encourage more players to be apart of the shop system or apart of the town in whole. I will be posting other progress within the server soon!
