    Will do if any new questions come to mind.

    I hate to be repeating what has already been said but setting up a pvp area is entirely possible on C currently! No-one bothers to use it though. While I remain a padmin, it won't be happening on P at least in part for the reasons you've extensively covered.

    We don't like to make changes to the core gameplay of the revisions until resets generally but the opportunity to consider it for the upcoming reset is something we are discussing.

    July 9th Congratulations to all of the Spawn Sculpture Contest winners!
  7. The Archaeological Sculpture Contest!

    Thank you to everyone who participated! We received only 10 submissions for a total of 8 winning spots, so we have decided to make an additional two plots and include everyone who participated as a winner! Each sculpture has an easy sign added to it out in the world so that you can receive your token of recognition for visiting. Each sculpture is worth visiting not only for themselves but for the existing builds created in the area too! All of these sculptures will be listed on the deadmap soon but all coordinates exist at the East side of spawn in the trophy wing located at 52, 24. All winners should head to these coordinates in spawn (as mailed too) to receive your prize. Here are a full list of the winners: Buzzie71 Builders: Buzzie71 Location: 1754 76 -3443 Cujobear Builders: Cujobear & King_of_queso Location: 741 71 -1983 Other details: The Warped Villager Statue was recovered from a ravine digsite in Vizmosas. The ravine itself was created by a tear in the space time continuum. Scientists are still investigating the cause of the tear. Defiex Builders: Defiex Location: 3444 64 -3952 Other details: Anti submission? ;D down with feeesh! Disriter Builders: Disriter Name: The Trueseer Monument Location: 3624 102 -3579 Other details: it is themed after my settlement and soon to be town called Jargon.

  9. Revision 22: Mid-Rev Feedback Topic

    Thank you for returning with more feedback @kumquatmay! I think your vision of the mob arenas could be worth exploring, for at least some floors in future. We may have to do some testing to find the right balance of mobs vs people and the right combination of mobs to make this a reasonable challenge! Your suggestion box feedback is very interesting and I appreciate that you’re providing some alternative solutions for us to consider, definitely food for thought!
  10. Revision 22: Mid-Rev Feedback Topic

    Hello @saberfysh! Thank you for your continued feedback! The abundance of certain geographical features, such as mountains as you’ve described can feel a bit overused at times. With maps this large, and being somewhat at the mercy of the terrain generator, we have been more likely to see these geographical features appear. While of course this is great news for the likes of Metal Mountains… it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Our aim for the current map was to limit the oceans and return to a greater volume of landmass, as inspired by the likes of Revision 12. Some of our more recent maps had been a little too overbearing with oceans but going forward with Revision 23 and the 1.13 Aquatic Update, it seems there may be a thirst for more diverse biomes, particularly where the ocean is concerned. On the subject of dragon fights, one idea put forward by other individuals would be to have two versions of the dragon fight available. One which is the vanilla experience and another which has been enhanced somehow. How would this sit with you if implemented and what would you like to see from the gameplay and mechanics of an enhanced dragon fight?
  11. Revision 22: Mid-Rev Feedback Topic

    Hello again @buzzie71! Thank you for your additional feedback here. We have been working on an event for a few weeks now which will be an event that can be completed either solo or with friends so hopefully as the details for that are announced, they will be more in the neighbourhood of what you’re asking for. Having two versions of the dragon fight is something we considered going into the current revision and could certainly be an interesting balance for those seeking the vanilla experience and those wanting a different challenge. If there were to be an enhanced dragon fight, what would you like to see from it in terms of gameplay and mechanics? On the custom ore drops, I do want to clarify that we had a delayed release of each set of items as we were observing the collective drops that were happening and were deciding on the appropriate costs as we were getting more data. If a similar system were to be reused in future, ideally for cosmetic-only items as you and many other people have suggested, then with the data we’ve acquired now, we should be able to release all at once.
  12. Revision 22: Mid-Rev Feedback Topic

    Hello @Trooprm32, thank you for taking the time to hand write your notes! With regards to the spawn building itself, I do want to make you aware of some changes that we made in response to the early rev survey, which was to include signs just underneath the spawn point which include the rules, information and useful tips. New logins are immediately greeted with signs encouraging them to jump down and read through, to which a large number of people take the time to view. I see you’ve raised concerns that the diversity of exhibits on display was not broad enough, you claim that half of the exhibits were from just the past two or three revisions. This is not the case. While you were also welcome to participate during the staff spawn sprucing and add something more historical, I’ve put together a list of all the exhibits that feature from a revision-specific time period and encourage you to take another browse around as around 68% of the revision-specific exhibits are from revs 17 or prior. Unlike last revision, we do seem to be hearing more feedback in support of a reduced map size. I do agree with your thoughts on having a more densely packed community than we currently have, particularly since the community is one of the main strengths of the server. I recall from your prior feedback that 6k x 6k was something that worked after many revs of trial and error, so maybe this could be a good number to first consider. For the quartz distribution in the nether, most of the ores were packed in quantities within the ground itself so I’d recommend digging within to acquire more quartz than may appear on the surface. Feedback that people wanted a large map to remain but that people also wanted to have areas of the map that felt like a wilderness. In regards to the South East corner, there were two portals available from the 7th portal being released… one of the original six portals just took quite some time to find, despite being on the livemap. :-P We’ve experimented with custom spawners a bit over the past few revs, in particular with this current revision. We heard feedback that having the creeper spawner available was too generous but also that it allows people who use elytra to travel. Our compromise was a delayed release through an event. Congratulations again on your a-maze-ing persistence at winning the creeper spawner! I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the custom drops from ore! The process to determine the drop rates underwent several hours of discussions, spreadsheets and early tweaks. If we continue a similar system in future, we can certainly look to optimising the drops more and because we have data on the acquisition of these drops now, we might be able to have all of the items available at once to trade as opposed to staggered releases. Here we are, elytra. I completely agree with you that this is a very hot topic. When forming this revision, we relied on a lot of prior feedback which swung in the majority for taking risks and making changes. Since the start of the current revision, the many individuals who enjoy elytra voiced their feedback and have changed my mind on the elytra approach. The vanilla approach is certainly not balanced for the multiplayer experience (particularly as you point out, having elytra available for the first who get into the end), however I am now of the opinion that we should largely try to leave the game balancing to the creators of the game. Roads and rails haven’t seen a huge public project since around the introduction of elytra but that seems to be a reflection more on members of our community who lead such projects going inactive and no-one filling that void. What we have seen this rev with elytra changes, and last rev with the traditional elytra experience is that people are building roads and rails just as much either way.
  13. Revision 22: Mid-Rev Feedback Topic

    Hello again @defiex Thank you for returning to complete your feedback, we’ve taken a read through and have a few comments! I do note that you’ve made a few comments on how elytra users are dirty, yet I see no solutions from you to provide more hand washing stations! It’s very helpful to hear your thoughts on these remaining sections of the feedback topic, both in areas where you are in agreement with others and not. Within the event feedback, you did say that you enjoyed working with Rose for the Slime Golems but also that you’d like to see more single player events. With most of the events this rev, we’ve tried to make them available for single players but also keep them open to groups of people playing through if they choose!
