The Spawn Building
Love this spawn's spawn building. Bringing back past revs was a wonderful idea!
Spawn is very easy to escape from, though I really appreciate the addition of signage to help direct me where I need to go.
Please don't get rid of the rules boards. New players really do read it!
Signs. On all the things, pls. You can't have too many signs. Srslytho. More signs to have directions to the various places is a boon, not a distraction!
The Overworld Map
To me it feels just right, but I like the big so I can build up in my little corner without anyone building up right next to me this revision. :eyes argoth:
I'd be fine with returning to vanilla. I'll miss some of the world painted pretties, but I think 1.13's additions will make up for it. I wouldn't want to go full on Water World, however! Maybe lots of islands or many large ocean/lakes?
Biomes seem fine to me, but then I'm hiding in my corner and (currently) haven't been on much recently.
The only complaint, though I'm not sure it's really a complaint, is lack of gravel for concrete making. But I see, with the newest of contests, that Padmins have heard our prayers for more gravel/sand. :D
The Nether Map
I loved the nether this revision. Loved loved loved!
The nether this revision was refreshing! It was exciting to explore and run terrified from. I don't armour up and I was able to, as long as I was careful, stay alive while collecting resources.
It would be nice if netherspawn was slightly less terrifying, some way to keep mobs from spawning within the immediate boundary. It's no beuno to have traveled all the way from the corner of the map to spawn, then pop into the nether to immediately die to a waiting wither skeleton.
Nether ores seemed fine to me and I was able to mine for what I needed. But then I'm only one person, so I don't need much.
No feedback on the Ender Dragon fight. I don't really take part in the fight (tried once, died within 10 seconds of showing up! yay me!)
No other issues!
Not sure which world edit commands are missing as I haven't played around with them rencently. Honestly, if we have the basics, I think that's fine. Basics are still better than having to handplace everything.
Bringing back old maps is awesome and I love it! If there was a way to kidnap some of Creatives maps, that'd be awesome, too, but it's understandable if that borks PvE somehow (too many maps loading or something)
Spawner number at start and forward: I'd prefer to have them all out at the start rather than popping them in after. I wanted to build out in the wilderness, no portals or anything nearby and ended up near an end portal and a netherportal.
I don't have any preferences on other means of portals other than never ever bring back the hourly shifting portals.
amount & distribution: Seems fine, but I've been using them sparingly...
Iron Golem Spawners
Don't have anything new to say about the iron golem spawners. Both Barlimore and didy have heard me complain about them enough over the past year. :D
Finished the bottom portion!
How do you feel about the inclusion of custom spawners in the map? Would you prefer to have, or not have them? I do like having the custom spawners, I really only use the iron grinders and the shulker spawners, so there's that. I'd be annoying not to have the shulkers. Can't speak to the rest of them having vs not having them as it wouldn't much affect me.
Early revision feedback suggested that custom spawners in the nether were not a good idea, due to an observed local effect on spawn rates. Would you prefer custom spawners in various worlds, or do you think they should be confined to the overworld? As long as it doesn' tmess with spawn rates, I don't care where the spawners end up.
Which custom spawners do you think are particularly useful in a multiplayer setting, if any? s I'd like to keep the shulkers, and I suppose those dirty, dirty elytra users would appreciate a creeper spawner. :D
Custom Drops from Ore (Fossils and Rares)
Do you think these custom drops have been a positive addition to the overall gameplay, and would you like to see something similar next revision? I haven't been really digging them out on purpose, but it is a lot of fun.
We spent some time at the start of the revision adjusting things to try to make sure the drop rate felt rewarding but not too common. How far to you feel we succeeded in that respect? since I'm not actively digging them out, I'm not sure.
Do you think the fossil and amber trades at spawn have been a worthwhile addition so far this revision? Do you feel the items on offer appeal to a wide range of people? Having the full list of what's available at the start instead of letting it out piecemeal would be better.
Have you enjoyed the custom horse saddles available to trade this revision? You have underestimated how terrifying it is for an unsuspecting defi to have visitors come upon me. Such horror. Such terror!!!
Would you like to see them return for next revision? My heart says YES and my nerves say no. But the heart wins out.
If so, do you prefer them as trade items, prizes, or some mixture of both?
I'm not a dirty elytra user. I personally would like more rails, but since we don't have the vast network of overland rails that we used to, I can understand why people would like to use elytra instead, to see the land, as it were. I really don' thave any other elytra opinions.
Here are our events so far this revision (with more to come!):
Weekly portal hunts (March-April)
The Lost Slime Golems
The Archaeologists’ Guild Poetry Competition
The Meandering Maze
Mob Mayhem! (PvE Arena Events)
We’ve tried to ensure that there are multiple events on offer throughout the revision, and that for ongoing events, prizes can be obtained by anyone who manages to complete them. Do you feel this has been beneficial to the server? Some are good. The events that a single player can manage are fun.
Are there any events you have particularly enjoyed this revision so far? s I enjoyed the Slime Golem search because I invited myself along with Rose. It was fun doing it with others. (Only died once? Twice?)
Is there any event past or present that you’d like to see return in Revision 23? Not sure.
Have you any new event ideas that you’d like to share? Nope
