PvE SuggBox

Recommended Posts

If you didn't know, we have a command called /suggestion-box that lets users anonymously submit suggestions that the admins can then read. Each month, I will add the suggestions as they come in and their status, updating as responses are made! We will have the current months suggestions attached to this post and then will move them down as we go.

 

4th September

Suggestion: Maybe with the live map, there should be a plugin for boundaries claimed by players with like a yellow border aroud their base

Our Response: We took the time to look into whether this suggestion was at first technically feasible and it seems that Dynmap does offer a means to create overlays on the livemap, similar to how this image appears. Given that most claims are not in simple cuboid shapes, this may cause issues with the overlay and we do not wish to enforce cuboid claims to please the livemap.

While this overlay is not something we're keen to pursue further, we do want to point out that we encourage place requests to come through so we can consider them for the livemap. Failing that, there is a community contributed deadmap which can also help to see where settlements are.

14th September

Suggestion: Implement a plugin to allow line-by-line editing of books and quills.


Our Response: Thank you for your suggestion. We've all been there at some point or another where you've needed to edit a page of a book only to need to go back through and redo all of the pages back to that point. We took some time to investigate as to whether there was such a plugin available and in our searches so far we have come up short. What we did find are plugins that could open up the potential for exploits to be used through these books, not too dissimilar to incidents which have been experienced on creative in recent times. While this is something we would aim to thoroughly test for with any new plugin, we'd be keen to hear submissions for any plugins which seem to do just what you are requesting.

With this in mind, we would not like to pursue such a plugin for now unless one can be proposed that merely allows you to edit any part of the book text, nothing more. What we would recommend considering is looking up some online minecraft book editors as tools exist out there to help plan out books in advance. It does mean having to type them out once on a website and again in-game but it would afford the luxury of not needing to make edits when you make the final version of your book on P.

December Suggestion Box

 

1. All staff (esp admins) should know how to do stuff on mumble.

    -Each of us have our strong points and contrary to popular belief, we do not know everything.  We will defer to others that have greater knowledge when it is approperiate

    

2. Admins should moderate moderators and not instigate players.

    If you are having issues with either moderators or CAdmins/PAdmins, please get hold of the Head Admins as this is their territory.  Current Head Admins are Silversunset, Sir_Didymus, and Trooprm32.

 

3. make "/chairs off" persist over relogs

     -we are discussing this with the tech admins!

 

4. alias "lifealert' to '/modreq helpI've fallen (in a hole) and can't get out'

     This was discussed and at this time we are not going to add this to our public commands list. Please use genchat or /modreq for assitance.

 

5. The ability to bottle accumulated xp into xp bottles to use to repair mending gear.

    We have discussed and this is not something we will be implementing.

 

6. defiex smells

    http://tinyurl.com/jgmxvov

 

7. Include a rail station in the next rev's spawn for central access

    This was discussed, but not something we will be implementing at this time. It takes away from allowing players to build their own stations and town-to-town interaction.  

 

8. when we have rocket boosting in 1.11: super high flight duration stuff from events.

    -insuffient information, please catch a padmin to elaborate.

 

9. doppleganger named "dobbleganger" spawns on exact copy of dobreira's horse

    Dopplegangers can only spawn as players, not as other game mobs. Sorry!

 

10. More nutshack references

     Uncle Tito says no.

 

11. When we have rocket boosting in 1.11: super high flight duration stuff from events

       Insufficient information from this suggestion, please let us know more detail/what in particular you'd like.

 

12. Event charged creepers shouldn't be subject to moblimiter "age" culling

      Mobs can be retained by using "nametags" during events as well as during normal spawning times.

January Suggestion Box

 

1. "/ignore-all" ignores everyone for when you want a moment of peace

     -we are discussing this with the tech admins!

 

2. Doing "/c #channel when you're not in it should NOT return a message like it's private

    -we are discussing this with the tech admins!

 

3. Could we have more nether portals? They would really encourage more nether development.

   - We have decided not to add more nether portals for Rev 19.  We will be discussing the idea for Rev 20.

 

4. Service plugin (1.11) to disable the spawning of the new villager types. 

     -We have discussed and will be allowing the new 1.11 villagers.

 

5. Commands that can be used once a day that initiate votes to change to day/night/rain.

    - We have discussed this idea and will not be moving forward with it at this time.

 

6.  Have glass drop sand.

     -We have discussed this idea and will not be moving forward with it at this time. We feel there is enough sand currently out there for use.  If you are worried about using sand in any given area, just ask around or find an admin for assistance.

 

7. Build next spawn like this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ

February/March Suggestion Box

1. a /hop to disconnect you and reconnect(yes I get this is a button already)

     - There is no need for this, we would prefer tech admins to be able to focus their available time on other efforts instead.

2. a /horse-owned-like called "/horse-pwned" that's /horse-owned but in l33tspeak | /hax or haxess alias for /haccess

     - These suggestions are not something we're looking to introduce permanently to the server. Aliases are intended to be helpful for the most part, if we pestered the tech admins for many joke aliases then we'd be wasting their time with a never-ending list.

3. /stand's name thing should have a way to reset name without clearing all modifiers.

     -We have raised this as a feature request with the tech admins

4. Add a simple [string] argument to /alert list command

    - defiex has culled the alerts down to a more manageable size, particularly since we can look to merge alerts with the new character limit.  For this reason, we won't be looking to add this suggestion.

5. some kind of policy for at least a partial refund on messed up doppel names?

     -Dopplegangers are no longer cAse SensItiVe which we feel is very helpful.  Seplling, sorry but you are going to have to double check or triple check.

6. "is locked with a magical spell" for named inventories should also return their name, if applicable. 

     -We would like to remind you that /cinfo is available for checking chests.  LWC is not an in-house plugin so such a feature would require tech admins to constantly add it to each new version.

7. defiex is awesome

     -Please drop us a pm to correctly map out your keyboard.  There seems to be some speculation that you misspelled cujobear. ;-)

8. op ppgome this time?

     -If you're not from Planet Minecrop, no op.

9. make a crafting recipe for lily pads

     -Given that this is a renewable resource available from fishing and that demand may only be high do to the collection challenge this revision, we're not looking to introduce a crafting recipe at this time.

10. breeding cooldowns should take into consideration the time they started and elapse even if the chunk is unloaded.

     -Mobs grow up fast enough as it is.

11. More blow please.

     -This is the best we can do.

12. totemo pls make pigs trainable with EasyRider thx

     -with the current workload, we're not going to implement this idea at this time.  We will keep it in mind!

13. It's a bit too easy to mass-farm melons at spawn. Maybe tune this for next rev?

Still being discussed with tech admins:

1. "/ignore-all" ignores everyone for when you want a moment of peace

 2. Doing "/c #channel when you're not in it should NOT return a message like it's private

I'm popping in a post while defiex is away. Here are our responses to the May - June submissions.

1. "/me is afk" should have the same effect as /afk

We don't feel that this needs to be a priority to request the tech admins to alter. Each of the respective commands has a distinct difference in whether you're marked as afk in the tab list, you have the luxury of choice in which command you wish to run.

2. Suggestion: make "/nextrestart" output the MOTD.

Our approach to this request was to focus on sharing more commands which may not be as widely known/advertised. Within the latest blog post we've added a range of commands, including /motd, which displays the current message of the day and we'll look to add these commands to the information guide too in future.

3. Player was crunchy and good with ketchup, rated 4.5 by Ender Dragon.

NA8u2Uu.gif

4. killing a mob less than ten seconds before it would die of old age gets you some kind of reward

We had a couple of different thoughts on this suggestion. Firstly we didn't feel that people should be rewarded with something extra for being so slow at killing mobs. It may allow people to set up a system with grinders that would kill mobs in the last seconds of their life for extra rewards. The biggest concern for us was that we would have to set loot tables for every single mob in the game and determine what extra to be awarded in those final ten or so seconds. This is a lot of time both from us and tech admins for something that wouldn't be used too much. We feel that our time would be better devoted elsewhere.

5. use "Please welcome &p to the server!" instead of "-" and OP PPGOME

While your credentials appear in order, we are going to have to decline the OP request.

In regards to your other request about updating the "-" which appears before new logins to a full welcome message, we feel that the "-" currently sits within the P culture and that changing to a welcome message both doesn't have the traction of support at this present time to warrant a change and it isn't needed as people take the time to welcome people even with just the "-" appearing.

6. "Consider a plugin which would allow bows to have both mending and infinity on them."

For anyone unfamiliar, Mojang removed this feature in one of the 1.11 updates. We now have to choose either mending or infinity when it comes to bow enchants, never both.

We feel that it would be wrong of us to cherry pick elements of the game to retain from previous versions where gameplay is concerned. Mojang may have a vision for the game that we've yet to see play out with the removal of this functionality. If we choose to re-add this then in future we'd be running a 1.12 server "with a bit of 1.10, a dabble of 1.9" (and so on). This would also open the door for us to question which elements from the past that we'd want to bring back and that would lead us to creating quite the monster which could very well conflict with itself or future versions of Minecraft. It's been fun to have both enchants on bows while they lasted but the game has moved on and we must with it.

April/May Suggestion Box:

1. Cujo is map maker from now on?

Resounding yes from the peanut gallery!

2. recipe where you can cook rotten flesh to get leather!

We don't feel there is sufficient leather shortages to warrant this recipe being added.

3. For minigames, you should add "The Closed Box Experiment".Its a genuinely fun minigame, look it up!

We weren't sure what you meant, do you have an url that explains?

4. More gold please

Considered!

5. A railroad that connects all four corners of the world.

We're not going to set it up, but feel free to do so yourself!

6. You should add in a Recipe: awkward + EOF = 8:00 levitation

Sounds like an interesting idea that we will look into, but no promises.

7. jeb_ sheep produce random offspring

This is a Minecraft Easter Egg. Dyeing sheep is accessible enough for us not to need to modify this.

8. jeb_ sheep produce random WOOL to offset the fact you can spend nametags to have unculled sheep forever

This is a Minecraft Easter Egg. Dyeing sheep is accessible enough for us not to need to modify this.

9. shearing purple sheep named Wondrland makes all their wool come out renamed "Purple Square"

Fun idea, but we believe our tech admins have their available time spent elsewhere.

10. all staff doppels should have unique and relevant special items (not particularly useful, but like... with lore, or colored names?)

We like this idea. Be afraid. Be very afraid. :ph34r:

11. /cremove'd protections should still return the name of who placed them

That would be a suggestion for the developers  of LWC.  It may be worth sending them a suggestion here: https://github.com/Hidendra/LWC/issues

12. a way to opt out of having certain staff members do our modreqs

If you are having issues with anyone on the server, please come to us or send in a message to the head admins at admins@nerd.nu.

13. can this rev please be kept for longer, I want more time to build and enjoy my work - I don't want to restart after a few months.

Worth considering! The map is larger but we are running to some schedule which is flexible enough that we can look into a longer map if the activity is still there in several months.

14.  pls add waifu notch

Notch is a strong, single woman and don't need no man. No waifu for you!

July's post:

 

1. Allow players to have access to 'non-username' decorative skulls by playing them in mapworld via schematic and exchanging them over to P via modeq.

  This is a great suggestion and we like it!  We are currently looking into the the technical side and the logistics of having this work.  If/when it does, it would most likely be for Rev 21, not this revision.

 

2. Staff-specific death messages

While this would be fun to have, even for just admin hunts(Coming Soon!™), we feel it would not be appropriate to cherry-pick certain players to have their own specific death messages. We want the death/murder of all players to be inclusive! No one death is any more important than another! We are a welcoming and loving community!

 

3. to keep  exploration a fresh possibility , maybe include "protections" around the generated structures and revert them every so often.

We looked into the idea of this and while it is a good idea, the logistics would be a nightmare to keep up with. If the suggestor had meant re-adding loot to already looted buildings, we will not be doing so.  We will continue posting new Adventurer's Guild quests, however!  Take a moment to visit the Adventurer's Guild at spawn on the ground floor! It may be what you are looking for.

 

4. Allow slightly larger holes cut into the nether roof bedrock, enough for horse passage upward.

After thorough discussion, we will not be implementing this idea. The nether roof access was not meant as a safer passage through the nether. There are many ways to schlep your belongings through if you are taking advantage of any gold/farms on the roof!

 

5. It'd be neat if we could re-dye wool and clay the same way you change double slabs to smooth slab blocks.

We will not be implementing this idea.  Getting dye really isn't that hard and we believe it is a Rite of Passage for players to accidentally dye a stack of wool the wrong color. Sheep breeding and wool growth is plumped so you shouldn't have too much trouble getting the supplies you need.

 

6.  Further categorize place listings by making sub-categories for towns and grinders

We like this idea! We are currently looking into a way to implement this and will be having further discussion on ways to do so with various icons. We do not have an eta on implementation, however.

 

7.  is it worth adding P custom recipes to the recipe book?

Yes, it is! We are currently discussing this with the techs to see about implementation if it is possible.

 

8. make mapworld plots black and white backgrounds for next rev and forever, or add all colours of mapworld plot colours and a tp sign to the section with the colours plot

We liked this idea and are discussing ways to move this forward for Revision 21.

1. consider this: horse passengers, i.e. allow a player to ride on the back of your horse. pretty pls.

 

This is a great idea, but at this time we're going to pass.  If you would like take other's

for a ride, we suggest adding a lead and a llama to your group!

 

2. Add a stamina stat for horses, increasing time between hydration stops

 

We have decided not to further complicate the current horse leveling system. The hydration element of horse leveling was added to prevent afk leveling.  

 

3. tiny chance (like 1 in 10000) of natural zombie spawns wearing elytra

 

Elytra is already pretty easy to get in game.  Also, the thought of flying zombies has frightened defiex so badly that we're having trouble getting her to come out from under the bed.

 

4. /petinfo alias for /petowner

 

Working with the techs on getting this set up! Currently /pinfo also works to get information on pets!

 

5. jumping horses while inside a field of lingering jump boost potion greatly increases stat gain, but rabbit feet drop % lowered a bunch

 

We have decided not to further complicate the current horse leveling system at this time.

 

6. ...alternatively, just using rabbit feet on horses counts for a hundredth of a level (and are still lowered drop%)

 

We have decided not to further complicate the current horse leveling system at this time.

 

7. new special golden carrot drop (like, colored name and  a lore tag) from rabbits at super low % that adds some health stat and some jump stat

 

We have decided not to further complicate the current horse leveling system at this time.

 

8. Maybe a youtube -> custom music disc pluggin? No idea how it would work, but it'd be cool

 

We have decided not to implement this, mostly because of huge copyright issues.

Suggestion: “make PWC bypass only work in modmode for admins. Prevents accidental removal of private containers they don't own when playing normally”

Our Response:

Thank you for your suggestion, we have previously requested features similar to this in the past as it would be less spammy for us when opening chests as we receive a barrage of warnings in chat. With that in mind though, LWC doesn't appear to offer this functionality at present for us so we may have to be patient.

Our admins are generally very familiar with the experience of checking chests with /cinfo to see if they have access to them before opening. We have yet to handle any modreqs where admins have taken items out of chests by mistake as if this has ever happened, the admins in question have put the items back before it has become an issue.

With LWC we do also have logs for each chest so if something does get accidentally taken by an admin then it is logged in enough depth that we can track and restore such items.

31st August

Suggestion: Allow us to modreq easy-signs for setting spawn at playermade event locations like arenas/races etc.?

 

Our Response: We can see some advantages to including easy signs for these purposes but we’re going to take more time to thoroughly discuss the impact of taking away from the vanilla experience, in a little more detail before we revisit our answer.

 

Suggestion: To revitalize the railsystem, could spawn again have a prebuilt station in it in future revs?

 

Our Response: We feel that to revitalize the railsystem, ideally we need the community at the heart of the issue by working towards and being motivated to create a transport network. If we can aid in that by providing some pre-built stations then we may be open to doing so but will not promise to set this as a precedent.

 

Suggestion: /suggestion-box-code should ideally link to a github page or something easier to review instead of dumping the output directly to chat, where it's nearly impossible to review

 

Our Response: We do agree that the current way in which suggestions are regurgitated to us on command can be messy. If we did not maintain this list of suggestions by culling those which we respond to then it would be unmanageable.

 

If we need to then we can pull suggestions from the admin logs but they lose their anonymity that way, so if someone would prefer to provide us with a different output for the suggestions then that would be great. It isn’t a priority for us but it would be a minor improvement that helps.

 

Suggestion: Loved all the events recently, but think additional playtesting would really help. Allow people to opt-in to a "beta testers" group for a chance at helping events and ideas?

 

Our Response: This is a really great idea! We currently tend to playtest among ourselves for the moment as we’re cautious about spoiling aspects of events to other people, lest we give that particular crowd an advantage over other people. It is for this reason that you don’t see padmins playing events that we built ourselves.

 

With this in mind, we would be open to testing concepts to anyone who wanted to participate. Should it be appropriate for us to do so then we will make sure that such requests for help with testing are fairly offered to all and not merely a select committee.

14th September (part 2)

Suggestion: "This Chest is locked with a magical spell" message to include the name of who owns it. I miss punching stuff to see who owns stuff. --Sapph :heart:

Our Response: While we can understand why you would miss being able to see all of the spam which lwc throws at us.. :wink: For the moment we will take a mental note of this suggestion to consider again in future as we don't feel this is a priority to include. We would recommend to run /cinfo, or possibly consider setting it up as a macro as this currently returns the owner of a given chest.
