Revision 25 Suggestion Box Responses

Recommended Posts

March 24 (suggestions pulled on March 21)


Teleport / Fast Travel

  1. add tpa command?
  2.  let horses act as a means of "fast travel", giving players the ability to warp to major destinations for a cost of some carrots or hay bales or something... because otherwise with the chunk loading issues they're basically useless


The lag will subside. We will not be adding teleportation or fast travel to PvE.



  1. one man night skip
  2.  add 1 man sleep
  3.  night will pass if 1 player sleep maybe https://vanillatweaks.net/picker/datapacks/
  4. sleep vote plugin - if 50% of players are in bed, pass the night. maybe there's some indicator of how many more are needed to sleep in chat every time 10% more are in bed


While this suggestion has been made a few times, and it has been discussed in the past, we feel there are a large number of players that like to play throughout the night, hunting mobs and phantoms. We will not consider a 1 man sleep plug-in to bypass night, and, for now, will not be adding a voting system. 



  1. Possibly look into bringing back the old 1.14 villy trade mechanics? Making the current villagers as effective as the old ones is possible, but it would require much larger NPC numbers. Changing it back would prevent this, if possible.

The vanilla mechanics have changed, and change isn’t always a bad thing. Mechanics in 1.14 were clearly broken in an OP way. We are monitoring the situation, but for now have no plans to alter the mechanics away from vanilla. 


Tech Requests

  1. Add a TPS meter/other useful statastics to the TAB menu

Querying TPS in itself can cause lag, to allow 50+ players to run a TPS query will just add to the lag.This is why it is restricted to admins only

  1. <increased render distance for players that stick to the same areas?>

Nearest chunks are rendered first. If you are asking for a per player render distance based on your movements we are not sure that is something that could be implemented.

  1. Make the ignore list last for longer than next restart. maybe for a long time or until removed
  2.  please let /ignore persist beyond server restarts. having to re-ignore someone every thirty minutes when you are using the command so you don't have to think about them in the first place is moronic.

Yes, the 30 minute restarts are a pain right now, but they are only temporary. If you feel that someone is being so unruly in general chat that it would require you to /ignore them for multiple hours, you may want to contact staff.  

  1.  maybe make sure that it isn't bees searching for hives that is generating lag... if you haven't already accounted for that

There are a lot of things that generate lag on the server, we are taking anything and everything into account. 

  1.  a claim management plugin for land claiming.

This has been discussed many times. We have not been able to find one or come up with a system that would work for every situation that comes up.   

  1. split the server up into shard servers to distribute resource load- players automatically jump to appropriate server when crossing x/z boundary line, chat remains shared between servers, carto/livemap as well.

We can pass this idea over to the tech admins. Not sure if it would be feasible to do at this time. 


  1. disable phantoms
  2. phantoms auto despawn if the player who spawned them leaves or is more than some dist away. 
  3.  make phantoms spawn only in the end or something pls ❤️

We understand that some aspects of this game are frustrating to some players. At least with phantoms there are vanilla mechanics in place that can help mitigate their spawn rate and their danger. Sky kittens are concerned for your well being and just want you to take more naps. 

Custom Drops / Spawn Traders

  1. can we add special enchants (looting diam axe, inf mending) earlier on this rev? maybe they can become cheaper later?

We will be adding in special items available through spawn traders soon, and hope to add more this revision than last. If you have any suggestions about the kind of items you would like to see, we will consider them. 

  1. Could spawn traders sell lored name tags where the lore sets the color of the applied text? (via plugin)

As of right now, this may not be possible. Applied colors break when the item or tag is placed onto an anvil. We can ask techs if a plug-in could be written, but for now it will be low priority.

  1. make custom mobs drop honey bottles

We do not plan on updating the list of custom drops for the rev theme. We will keep in mind that players may want more honey than what the bees on the server can produce.

  1. add an ender chest to the quick mart

We have added an enderchest in the corner store, outside of the Quik Stop, and at the ATM

  1.  nerdcoin blocks

Nerdcoins are the currency for rev 25, if we feel that they are too prevalent we will introduce a larger denomination currency.


Death Messages

  1.  player-specific death messages. sapphric's example for player "Tellephone": "Tellephone disconnected" or "Tellephone discovered the call was coming from INSIDE the house" (from inerd71). player would need to approve before they get added.

This sounds like a fun idea, however, even as a team, we do not feel clever enough to write up messages for every player on the server and we would have to contact the plug-in developer to see if it is even possible. So at this time we will not be pursuing this idea.

  1.  reporting death message without custom message: "Spuroz died because of Phantom" around 4:12pm CDT 3/19/2020

This is a rare occurrence where the plug-in cannot determine 100% what actually caused the death. The death was probably caused by fall damage which was caused by the attacking mob. Therefore the message defaults to a vanilla message. It has been a known issue for a few revs now.  



  1. allow tnt to destroy block below sea level. protected regions would be unaffected, below sea level means no surface griefing ugliness, any griefing use would be treated as normal griefing and rolled back. restrict explosions/chunk re:lag
  2.  let us detonate TNT in regions we own. This would allow for better tree and concrete farms.

No- If we let one person blow up something then Everyone would want to blow up something - then we would have… you guessed it …..CHAOS ! But, for now our 2 main concerns regarding TNT use is lag and indirect PvP.   



  1. add bears

There are already bears in the game. Mobs and players. That is enough bears for now.

  1. drop in new ships/etc in end a couple times, so people can go on looting runs later too

This is an interesting idea and we will discuss the best way to possibly implement this.

  1.  pls don't make us mod req for flowing every water or lava

Unfortunately this has to remain in place as an anti-grief measure. 

  1. Put "Ores are rarer in world painted biomes" as a recurring server message please

This has been added as a server alert.

  1.  rev17 killer bunneh of something

NO! They get everywhere and stay long past their welcome! Rev 17 !! 🐵

  1.  Okay, listen. Dragons... but in the overworld.

Ok listened and ….Oh Hell Naw- bad bad bad,  go stand in the corner and think about what you just said o_o  !

  1.  Bring back mega dungeons!

Maybe some rev someday But there is a lot to find and explore on the current map!

Lag / Server Performance

  • 50 person max on the server until lag is gone?

We’re considering this as a last resort, and only after a full community consultation. Server performance has increased a lot recently thanks to work from totemo, so this doesn’t look needed at the moment.


  • Perhaps we could have a system that kicks players who have AFK for more than 10 minutes when the tick rate drops really low.

The mods are already able to kick AFK players when the tickrate gets low, but it seems this won’t be needed much anymore.


  •  /voterestart

We are managing the restart timer manually as it removes any possibility of abuse. This also means that restarts are more predictable so no mobs get culled by a restart.


  • have 15/20 min restarts at american peak time, but normal 30/60 min restarts the rest of the time if that's possible

 Server performance has improved tremendously and we are even on hour restarts!


  • limit revision size to spawn chunks + however many the server can handle loading with good performance. as daily player averages decrease, expand map to allow more chunk availability, providing performance remains stable. re-evaluate weekly

At rev launch the server size would be spawn and no more. People like being able to set up a permanent home at the start of rev, even if it is laggy.


  • ban the use of alt-accounts as chunk loaders

We have asked players to avoid using alts for the first month of the rev and reserve the right to kick alts (bots and not) if server performance tanks  


  • so uh, is there anything we can do about chunk loading?

Yes! Chunk loading and server performance has improved tremendously, thanks to on going updates from Paper Spigot and hours of work by totemo.


Custom Items / Drops / Mobs

  •  Could the shards for conduits drop from something else than sand? Every sand biome is getting destroyed.

Heart-fragments now have a chance to drop from seagrass and kelp!


  • sharpness trident

We’ll look into this as a trade at spawn at some point!


  • Can I get a dragon saddle for killing the dragon 100 times?

The dragon saddle is very buggy and prone to abuse. We do have some plans for avid dragonslayers though!


  • For the love of god, please nerf the baby zombies in the nether. They are way too fast and hard to hit. They're not hard, just annoying

This is exactly what they were meant to be.


  • pls nerf nether mobs

We run custom nether mobs as most players are skilled enough to not see the vanilla nether as a threat. If the difficulty is insane we’ll look into it, but while harder than previous revs we feel the challenge isn’t insurmountable.


  • Okay, so I thought about it and I still think dragons in the overworld is a good idea, but I have a better one now; dragons.... in the nether! Eh? Sounds awesome right?

No. Gods no.


  • let us reuse mob heads to summon an extra one of the mob (that can then also still drop a head) via doppelganger

If you have the head , why make a dopple with it to just drop another head- You still only have 1 head. 

Spawn / Map


  • Somehow add more PO boxes…

We’ve added 21 more PO Boxes!


  • there should be a dropper at the spawn rail station with minecarts like there was a couple revs ago

We have added 2 droppers in the station at spawn


  • Increase the height of the NW portal.

We’ve asked the owner to work with us to enlarge it.


  • Custom cave pls I love you ty

We’ve added this to the suggestions for next rev. We won’t be changing this rev’s worlds now.


Vanilla Mechanics 

  • make it possible to make normal iron farm

Iron golem spawners serve this purpose with minimal lag, along with being easier to build.


  •  can we have normal iron farms next rev?

Iron spawners were added as a way to allow players the benefits of iron farms. Vanilla iron farms caused lag. 

  • can we play vanilla next rev?

A completely vanilla server would struggle even more than our server does now with plugins helping the load. Most of our plugins are for reducing server load.


  • people can make their own nether portals

A limited number of portals reduces the risk of portals littering the nether. We try to make sure that access to the portals is free and the portal hunt at rev start is an old nerd.nu tradition.


General Gameplay

  • What if treasure chests & sunken ships refresh their loot once a week

We like the idea of refreshing loot as we stated with the last batch of suggestion responses. We are still working out the best way to do this.


  • hard mode

The server is already set to hard mode.



This is, as far as we know, the vanilla range for blazes.


  • Can we up the drop rate a wee bit for dark oak saplings?

Dark oak and Jungle saplings have always been harder to come by. 


  • custom nether portals

Minecraft’s April Fools event was incredibly cool and the possibilities could be endless! But for now we will not be implementing custom nether portals.


Player Commands


  • Allow players to modreq easy-signs for challanges/puzzles they make.

We feel this would be easily abused for little benefit to the players. If you think there's a really good use that we haven't thought of, please contact a Padmin.


  • 1 man sleep plsss

This was covered last set.


  • a server-side plugin to toggle genchat; where the player could still see /msg, broadcast, horse updates, etc; allow players to list who is listening to genchat

We’ve passed this on to the techs.


  • bring back the /lsd command!

  • bring back /lsd

We’ve passed this on to the techs.


  • we should get /sethome

The new bed mechanics allow this without it being night.


  • The /modreq command should display a message telling the user about /check. Or does it already do that and I've forgotten? Wall_E__

We can add an alert for this.


  •  /modmode alias /mm to make them flow reqs even faster

/modmode isn’t a lot of letters to type. If staff aren't doing flowreqs in a timely manner give them a nudge in genchat.


  • re: re: /ignore persisting beyond 30-minute restarts. I have already talked to staff about the user, and the user was warned for harassment- i still don't want to see their roleplay spam in public chat. let it persist indefinitely, please.

Restarts have increased to an hour and hopefully that will help.




  • make grief possible in regions only if owner wants it

  • give us an option so that we can allow griefing in regions

Regions already protect against grief, and areas not in protections can be fixed if you report using /modreq. If you want to grief in an area I suppose you can put up signs and tell staff about it and we’ll leave it be.




  •  can me and my friends (X_Pyke_X and Itz_Domba980) gets some space where TNT can blow up blocks so we can make tree farm, or make that close to spawn so it can be public and for server performance we can only use that when is small amount of people online

  • re: tnt below sea level response: server would restrict the amount of tnt explosions per chunk and for x seconds etc., preventing lag from tnt editing blocks and creating entities. Saying that everyone would want to use a cool and useful feature of the game and therefore we shouldn't use it... is silly. TNT use below y60 and lag-limited by plugin, is a healthy balance between function and protection. Moderating use of tnt in pvp would be the exact same as moderating player traps with dispensers or other game features that P already allows. The player who built the trap would be held accountable by staff. Fin.


We stand by our decision that enabling TNT is more of a headache than it is worth. TNT destroying rail lines and small underground structures accidentally is enough for us to think this is a bad idea, nevermind the method of restriction, which would require yet another plugin.


Information that needs updating / fixing


  • line #16 at nerd.nu/rules " Click here for the list of approved client mods" has no hyperlink. if a list exists, might be good to link to it there.



  •  the "skull planet" section of the PvE information guide is outdated, referring to a drop ship at spawn. should be updated.

Skull planet is back! We'll update the guide soon.


Bring Back S


  •  we should replace C with S

  • enforce a no grief policy on chaos, easy way to bring S back 😄

  • bring back S

This box is for suggestions for PvE, we will pass this over to the head admins




  • /op ppgome

You can use the “apply for mod” page on the website.


  • uwu defie san

updated response from defiex:



  • let us be able to make clans

We have chest regions if you are looking to add your whole group to a chest. Mod req for a chest region. Use /rg addmember to add members to the region,  then you can use /cmodify r:regionname to add access to the chest for everyone in the region. We also have clanchats, so that you can chat with just your region members. If there's something you are looking for that is not covered by these contact us and we'll see.


  • private farms aren't in the spirit of pve

We agree, but it is up to the players to make farms public. If someone wants a farm to be private then they are entitled to that.

Apr 26th 

  • Test

    • Success!

  • factions-lite without the toxicity

    • This sounds like a suggestion for another server. We can pass this suggestion up to the head admins.

  • double doors open together
    • This is already possible with redstone mechanics.
  • allow sleeping during the day, just like IRL #coronapocalypse
    • You are allowed to set your spawn point during the day with vanilla mechanics. If you are just trying to be lazy in game you can use the sitting plug-in to lounge in a chair

  • don't lose levels on death, have them be useful for something

    • If, as you say, levels aren't useful for anything, then why would it be important to keep them on death? Although, it would be cool to be able to collect them in a bottle for use later. Maybe someday that will be a thing. 

  • Helmet that mounts a baby rabbit onto the player. It looked so lonely.

    • Name it and take it home! It will stay a cute lil bunny forever. Give it a squeeze and show off “ Cinna-bun”  to your friends. You can use leads to guide most animals home.

  • A system that alerts you when a player gets on, with a reminder message of what you wanted to ask them about.

    • You can always send them mail and ask them a question that they will see next time they come on with /mail send [playername] msg. You could also try contacting players on discord

  • A plugin to see how many days someone's been awake.

    • We had something along these lines and had to remove it due to the lag it caused calculating this for every player, every game day. Phantoms suck, but they are part of the game.  Easiest way to keep track? If you see Sky Kittens it’s been 3 days.

  • Why isn't there a set home

    • You can set your spawn point during the day using a bed. There is also a personal waypoint system to set a waypoint so you don’t get lost. Type /wp to get started.

  • trident with enough sharpness to make it melee attack for same damage as sharpV diamond sword

    • A fancy trident may be something we offer for sale with a trader

  • develop an official framework/policy for giving players immortal dolphins once they're in boxes of water and air that in theory should work if not for mojang's shoddy coding

    • This might be possible? We will certainly look into options for not just dolphins, but other pets as well. 

  • Can we up the drop rate a wee bit for dark oak saplings? 

    • Drop rates for  Dark oak ( because they are made up of 4 trees)  and jungle are always a little less, its just the mechanic of the game. Try asking in gen chat if anyone has extra saplings. 

  • When a guardian is struck by lightning it should be turned into an elder guardian

    • Technically a laser can not only trigger lightning but will redirect it away from the guardian, effectively like a lightning rod so honestly if you are close to the guardian the lightning will be redirected and strike you and that would be unfortunate so for your safety I must say no.  Also, we don't think a lot of elder guardians laying around would be a good thing

  • A message when someone spawns a wither, gotta know who's causing that lightning.

    • No Peeking in other people’s Wither Holes ! Nosey Rosey

  • show lvls lost when dying in the death msg, i.e. "dnynumberone(69) [death message]"

    • This seems like a lot of work to remind you that you failed and lost all of your XP, Don’t want to kick someone where they’re down.

  • free the villagers

    • We know villagers are pain this Rev.  With new villager mechanics, players are keeping more villagers around, more villagers = more lag, more lag makes us try to implement plugins to reduce villager AI which is causing some villager issues. Please be patient while we try different things to see if we can get things to work out a little bit better for you guys.The other option is to reduce the numbers of villagers kept on the server.

  • Can I have a custom death message that said "Mr_CTA took the wrong train" or "Mr_CTA got run over by a train"? Thank you!

    • Though it would be nice to have personal messages to be fair to all players coming up with messages for everyone in the game would be too difficult .

  • death coords in death messages so people can get an afk player's items, or to make it in general easier to get for others.

    • Players should make sure they are 100% safe before going AFK. /wp death will give you your last death cords which you can share if you choose to 

  • increase limit to cull tropical fish

    • There is a current limit on the fish because a large number of fish in a small contained area does add to the lag on the server, same as too many mobs built up in a grinder. For now we do not plan on increasing the limit. 

  • in "horse name drinks until it is no longer thirsty!", change the it is to they are

    • It is part of the plug-in, we can pass this onto the techs, but for now it is low priority

  • can we get a crafting table and a shulker spot in the rail station near rails somewhere? that way when i forget my minecart i can pull some iron out of my shulker, or easily donate a bunch to the rails

  • crafting table down in the rail station, for people to craft minecarts with
    • We recently added dispensers to hand out carts. You can find them on the information columns between rails 1 & 2 and rails 3 & 4

  • rephrase the 'grabbed the wrong uber' death message. because i dont get it. and it sounds rapey which im fairly sure its not supposed to

    • Uber is a ride hailing company that uses a ride sharing app to schedule rides. 

  • Make RareViolet a mod, she is the best of us

    • Please submit the username and why you think they would be a good mod at nerd.nu/applyformod

  • Make golem soul drop rate increase with f3

    • I think drop rates are where they have been for a few years now no reason to change them.

  • Pet protections, at least from PVP damage. Living near spawn someone has killed or injured my cats daily :[

  • let cats be protected like horses. tired of cats being killed by griefers.
    • Like we stated before in the suggestion about the dolphins, this is certainly something to discuss. Having the pets not fall victim to griefers would be nice 

  • dropped items timer, such as a server wide wipe, maybe altered for certain drops, will help with lag caused by dropped blocks/items

    • Dropped items will despawn after 5 minutes just like a death pile would. Players using that 5 minute despawn timer to not clean up after themselves is just plain lazy. Adding in another plugin to help clean up after players is a big no from us. We don’t need more plugins, we need respectful players

  • spend a nerdcoin to unlock a villager's trades again - two birds, since that'd also make nerdcoins more valuable

    • We like this idea, although we can see that towns will start making their villagers not in public markets because players will leave the villagers locked and expect villager owners to unlock them . We will leave it as is for right now until we can find a better solution.

  • description/lore tags. Oh my god, I would use these so much 😮

    • Having the colored text and lore on items is one of the few ways admins have to make a collectible item special. Allowing all players that ability would take away the “specialness” of items admins give away.  We like being special please don't take that away from us.

  • Have spawn traders buy and sell shulker boxes full of selected materials for NerdCoins, e.g. cobble, dirt etc.

    • This may not be a bad idea, although cobble can be smelted and sold to villagers. How to mitigate players just getting rid of storage overflow vs mining and digging like crazy to make NerdCoin basically worthless. Nonetheless, this is a good idea for some materials; it might be something for the future.

  • PaperSpigot has a simple option to allow undead horses to be leashed (allow-leashing-undead-horse). Can we turn that on?

    • We can pass it to the techs

  • pls let me make tnt chanber somewhere near spawn so evryone can get faster wood/cobble/concrete

    • We have looked into this suggestion and weighed the pros and cons, at this time we feel TNT allowed would create more problems than it is worth

  • Water flowing should be automatically allowed under a certain y value. This would make it way easier to mine (to obsidianize lava).

    • This would also make it incredibly easy to destroy rail lines, intentionally or by accident. Mods will flow water for obsidianizing lava, just place the water and make a mod request.

  • omg slow Tina and Bobby down jesus christ on a cracker stop giving the kids cocaine

    • The younglings just have a lot of pent up energy since they are quarantined to the Nether - But look at how much fun they're having.

  • can we have something so we can name shulker boxes with coloured text

    • A request for being able to add color to names has been mentioned before. It is not high on the priority list and again we want to make sure we are not taking away the padmins only ability to make items “special” for admin related collectible

  • add a fortune III efficiency V dia sword to Jimbo's Spring Harvest Shop at the Quik Stop - for sapling collection

    • Why a diamond sword though?  We could add it to a hoe or a pair of shears. We will weigh some options and it may appear in a spawn trade soon.

  • Give Spook6 an award for being such a cool moderator.

    • She is pretty  cool, but all of our Mods are, be sure you tell them they are doing a great job when you see them 

  • allow /signtext to enable players to copy/paste text on signs

    • The up arrow works really well for doing the same /signtext line over and over. 

  • maybe find a way if possible to fix the issue of held tools triggering the WG message when pushing buttons/interacting with things in a region where that is enabled

    • This feature has always been intentional, it's not an issue that needs to be fixed. The wood sword allowing players to easily see what region they are in has been around longer than any of us padmins!

  • a way to allow another player to break a locked chest I've placed - so i can securely deliver items to a player who hasn't set up a donation chest

    • LWC's feature that would handle this does not appear to work. Best bet for now is to ask the player to set up a donation chest or check back in a few days to remove the chest you left.

  • make the nether portal on the nether-side larger. people and horses are getting stuck in the decorations around it

    • We will look into this, we thought this issue had been fixed

  • remove the OP nether mobs, or severely reduce their spawn rates. That or put a red sand biome in the overworld. Having to fight an army every ten seconds while gathering resources is not an interesting challenge, it is just frustrating

    • There is a red sand biome in the far south of the overworld. totemo has also added the custom red sand recipe back on the server. It works the same as wool. 1 sand + 1 red dye = 1 red sand. The same works for red sandstone. 

  • add players as saddles

    • No piggy back rides- No one is riding me ! (i_c_e_)  Also, Would be hard to make them for everyone. It is much easier to do with in game items

  • Okay, so what if instead of just one ender dragon, there were three? That'd be sick. Three times the dragon is three times as awesome. This is a scientific fact.

    • Nope, and back in the corner with you. However, right now due to vanilla coding and our new custom dragon fight you will sometimes find multiple dragons in the end. This will be fixed in a later dragon fight update.

  • add a toggle command to set respawn point at bed. Would like ability to sleep in a bed for phantom reasons but not reset my spawn point.

    • Don't know how this would be accomplished unless by. . . plugin. We can see the benefit of this ability an we will pass it to the techs to see if there is an easy solution

  • Give XP when blocks drop special items like NerdCoins.

    • The drops are the prize 🙂 

  • Make reconnecting reset the sleep timer for phantoms

    • Like it or not Phantoms are now a mechanic of the game - try and remember to sleep before 3 cycles have passed so you can reset their need to give you a cuddle. Any additional plug-ins to manage phantom or sleep behavior is very low on our priority list at this time. 

  • i would not mind a self kill command

    • There are many many ways to off yourself  if you wanna die, you don't need a command
