PvE Suggestion Box Responses

7 posts in this topic

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.

 

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.

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.

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

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!
