    posted a message on Need help finding a weapons/useful items bukkit plugin!
    Hello!

    On my server, we suddenly started roleplaying, and we've naturally built a sort of community. A guy pronounced himself king, and now everyone treats him as king. I however, is the God. I have a palace in the sky, I'm invincible and I have superpowers.

    Thing is, though, I always keep telling people "Stay out of my palance, it's not for mortals!", and when people try to climb it, I kill them. However, should someone actually make it up there,they'll find the palace actually welcoming then and congratulating them on their achievement of making it up there. It says "Welcome to Heaven!"

    What I need though, is a bukkit-compatible plugin to reward them with. There is a chest there, and I plan it to have a reward for those who make it up there. I've looked at mods for wands and such, but I can't find anything who fits my needs. I need the weapon/item to be unobtainable by regular means. Incraftable. So that the only way people can get it, is if I give it to them. And the way they get it from me, is by climbing to the palace and finding it in a chest. So basically, I need some kind of plugin where there is a weapon or useful item that can only be created by the admin, which will be the reward for those who manage to reach my palace in heaven.

    Anyone know of any plugin like this?

    Count me in on this!

    I miss trying to find ways to scale the Burtonesque formations of mountains. However, the thing I miss the most: TALL mountains. Now we even have 256 in height, instead of 128! Imagine; finding a mountain in which you almost can't see its snowy peak, then scaling it; and building your own majestic castle atop it. With a long view distance, you would truly feel like a king in his castle up there.

    Combined with some new features like hardcore mode and large biomes, the struggle for survival in a wild and huge world would be as close to complete as I can currently imagine.

    Please, if anything, Mojang; at least make elevation of the surface a lot more diverse than it is now. The difference between a Superflat world and a regular one is way too small.

    With the newest snapshot (or last one), Hardcore mode is supposedly working in multiplayer. I can't figure out how to select it though. I tried putting 2 on game-mode in the server.properties, and also tried putting 4 on difficulty. IT NO WORK GAIS, HERP ME?

    You lost me at the part where you accuse Minecraft of copying terreria. You do realize they're both influenced heavily Dwarf Fortress (which is an 'gasm-inducing game), which in turn is influenced heavily by Rouge? (Games influenced by Rouge has even gotten a genre for themselves).

    Listen man, wherever you go in these days: everything "new" will be based on or inspired by something else. There's no escaping the fact that nothing is original anymore. If you truly crave originality to properly function, the simpler solution would be to die; because you're never gonna find it.

    The terrain generation is capable of interesting things, but I do miss the old beaches with the ocasional clay deposit in them, as well as mountains covered in trees (so far it seems only the jungle biome does that now)... Sprinkle in some of the old terrain generator in with the one we have now and things will be awesome!


    Holy **** Kalsterino, I knew you liked all the whiners at this forum but I never knew you were THIS active! xD

    I am dumbstruck. I had no idea server renting could be this cheap. And the service IS good.

    Ordered and glad of it!

    I've been thinking, for a while now, about how power is balanced inside this server. It seems to me that it's unclear to most players where power lies, and whether or not they should respect it, which leads to excessive amounts of rage for everyone, as well as random buildings be placed. I did not believe, when I joined, that that was what this server was for. I believed that it was for an ordered city of Minecrafters, and that there would be balance and fair leadership.
    Instead, we have an unclear leadership, and this needs to be remedied, quickly, before the server dissolves into anarchy. I don't propose an anarchy, or a dictatorship, or a communism. I would instead suggest that we elect our leaders, under the promise of following their laws, with the return promise of a just leadership, and equal treatment. This needs to be, or else it would be worse than not electing our leaders.
    I propose we elect a triumvirate from a pool of 7 or 8 candidates, and that, when elected, these leaders have equal power, being appointed as admins. Other admins would be bound to follow the laws, with, as I said, no unequal treatment.
    This is not suggested to cause an upset; rather, to prevent one. Likewise, it is not suggested from hate, but from a wish to see the server united instead of torn apart. I count on the support of my fellow Minecrafters in this.

    Support for this petition-(Reply publicly saying that you support this petition)
    Flameburn
    Quackzor
    Akklonian

    Pool of Candidates
    -Dvar
    -Smitty
    -Flatirons
    -Thugcup
    -Lonewander
    -[nominee]
    -[nominee]'
    -[nominee]

    Candidates can turn down their nominations, and leaders may resign when a replacement has been elected. The first three people to gain 5 nominations will be placed as the three un-named nominees. Nominations are, of course, subject to change at the will of the players.

    Edit- the proposed political system itself is also open to change. The three leaders can have different branches of power, or be equal. There can be more leaders, but I believe fewer would be a mistake- dictatorships rarely work.


    Can't do no such thing. Think of it in a family situation like this: "Oh our kids are unruly and don't do what we say! We better make a petition to vote for which of use is going to be the parents!"

    Quote from Flameburn »

    I'm truly not doing this out of anger, Flatirons. I have no wish to seize control, and if offered it will turn it down as quickly as possible. I did indeed say it's a dictatorship, but in the sense that any government controlled by one person is a dictatorship. Dictatorships are inherently unstable, and, even when run by a good person, will have the idiosyncrasies of that person imprinted on them. A triad is far more stable, and a centralized, agreed upon authority would result in a far-smoother running city.


    You contradict yourself. A dictatorship is when one person controls the whole load. Flat has admins. They help decide and rule the server. And don't come with any claim of "the people demands democracy." Even in a real democracy, the current president sits no matter what the people think of him. Sure, the day comes when election day comes, but it is not for the people to decide when that election day is.

    Also, if we go way back in time to the era of kings. All power were handed to the kings bloodheir, or the person he saw fit if no bloodheir was there. The only place in history where the people decided to take election of rulers in their own hands, they didn't come with any paper where they listed who they think should rule. They demanded revolution! Take the French for example. They seized the Versailles and arrested King Louis XVI, then later on they executed him. The new lovely government then decided to change everything. Go to war on Europe to force their ideals on them, executed 30 000 internal "enemies" and started accusing each other for treason. They all ended in dying and then Napoleon came to clean up the mess, leading to another war in Europe that also ended in demise.

    So you see, as the people never choose when to elect a new leader themselves (unless there's a nice leader that allows such nonsense) your only choice is to get the other population with your cause and force Turtleey to agree. And let history speak for itself. Revolutions against an "unfair" leader doesn't end well, but puts everything in utter chaos and desperation. However, in this case, if you'd gotten everyone against turtley, it's more likely to end in him banning everyone and getting new people, or simply just shutting down the server. What I'm trying to tell you, this democratic idea of yours won't leave any good results. So I'll present you the two best options you have: Leave this folly and just sit back, enjoy the game, follow the rules and let the server prosper, or get out of here.


    EDIT: Just noticed you've already solved it. Wow...this felt pointless <.<

    Just kidding. A snowball/archery course! That's right, now you can train and have fun in a large play area for playing against friends!

    Now what?


    "That souled lime a delightful idea, Potato. I wouldn't hesitate to accept it as a plan!"

    Too bad it's already thought of, but at least you made a good and useful idea! How about you try to find a way to make the archery course teach us to handle moving enemies? Maybe by using the gravity of gravel or sand? Like having a "fuse" of wood or cloth to burn, and then when it's burned a single block of sand or gravel will fall and then you shall hit it with an arrow before it hits the ground. Like this:

    [] [] [] [] :sand: [] <--- Randomly placed block for shooting at when it falls
    :White: :White: :White: :White: :White: :White: <--- The ceiling that hides the block
    [] [] [] [] [] :White:
    [] [] [] [] [] :White:
    [] [] [] [] [] :White:
    [] [] [] [] [] :White:
    [] [] [] [] [] :White:
    [] [] [] [] [] :White: <--- The fuse that eventually burns away the ceiling to allow the block to fall
    :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: <--- THE FLOOR!

    This way we could train our reflexes, and shooting moving targets without having too much time to target. Great practice! We could add difficulties too! Like an easy room, where there are columns of water so the block falls slower when it hits the water (below the ceiling, or else it would extinguish the fire), and an advanced room where it's normal but a slightly elevated ceiling due to the high fall speed of the block. Oops, now I made the idea D:

    However though, this would only work once arrows are fixed and the physics are. At the moment, you don't see the block fall, it just suddenly appears at the ground. However....Flat, can I make a prototype for this mechanism? =D
    If it shall be made, at least I want to make the prototype myself. Then if it goes official, Dvar could do a better design and all :tongue.gif:
    I really wanna do this now =D

    We already discussed the walling of the city and it is a good idea. there should be disctrics that are walled up. for example the new city and the old hq area should be walled up. If you can change the damage on and off I think the walls should be built before the monsters are turned on. Also the armory would be the most guarded area and there needs to be a safe haven for us near the armory so if all else fails we can just hold out in the armory.

    I would like to help build the walls around the city. and I could design some defences aswell. Also we should have a last stand mechanism where you flip the switch and some tnt blows up the area surounding the armory and safe haven and exposes the lava underneath. and sand falls around the area creating an extra wall around the safe area. I could think of some other Ideas I just want to know what people think about that.

    BTW me and someone else (sry I forgot your name) have already chose a site for the Colosseum and we are just waiting for permission.


    Ah okay. That's awesome. Are you new? In that case: Hi!
    If you're not new, then "Hi!" anyway.

    I hope you've chosen a large place, because the Colosseum, although not completely a 1:1 copy, needs to be of epic proportions. I support it obviously, but I can't permit anything :smile.gif:
    I'll gladly help constructing it when/if the building is commenced!

    Just letting everyone know that I am aware of the new update and the server will be back up when hey0 is updated accordingly, thanks!


    Yeaaah. I'm eager to smash some zombie heads and keep our city safe! =DDDDDDDDDDDDDD
    Flat, we should hire a new squad of guardians called the "CC Squad." CREEPER CONTROL!

    Unless we set badguy spawning to false. That would make me sadface. Perhaps we should consider fencing parts of the city, so the bad guys keep away when we both have light and fences? Anyway, it'll be cool with health and bad guys and no mobs caught in an endless loop of being stuck in the floor without ever dying.

    Also, I hereby request that we build a Colosseum, to honor our Roman/Greek style! Now with health we can hold Gladiatorial death-matches in it, with balconies for spectators (not quite 50 000, but you get the picture) and a VIP balcony for the cool guys and the Caesarian Flat to go like this in gladiator duels: "Up with mah thumb! I PITIED THE FOO'." We could also make a hollow underground for less deadly spleef tournaments. I deem this a great idea! :iapprove:

    Is your every single post a complaint on how people does something wrong?

    No, look at his original post. Look at it carefully.


    Yeah I get it, he did something wrong. That still doesn't answer my question. You truly only seem to be meddling into affair to have the final word and settle everything yourself. I'll agree however, that in this case it was kinda needed.
