Last updated 5/9/2012. Please remember, hardcore does not mean that it MUST be vanilla hardcore!
So, I promised on the 1st that if you guys voted enough to keep us on at least the second page of Minecraftservers.net(HINT HINT HINT), I'd add a hardcore server. You guys have managed to do that, so we're getting a hardcore server! We just need to work out a few minor details first. It's a hardcore server, so there won't need to be much setup involved, it can go up quickly after we hammer out the details. Let's try to keep this short and to the point, and not break off into off-topic chatter. First, points that aren't really up for debate.
I HATE cheaters online. They ruin the game for everyone who isn't using a cheat, and generally, they're immature assholes who I wouldn't want to supply with a server to play on. I'm putting on an anti-cheating plugin.
So here's where you get to have your say in which plugin gets made. You can only vote for one and voting will close in the 22nd at noon.
camjubinville: "can u make a plugin that u can place a sign in a protection/childlot that says lot 7k but when they right click it it will take 7k from there money if they don't have enough it will say u don't have enough tims to buy. thx from -camjubinville"
timtheblue: "I propose the ability to trade earned XP for XP bottles, perhaps even with a small convenience fee. I think this should be possible without client customization, but I could be wrong. That's all!
overkiller75: "Hello, I was just thinking maybe of a random events plugin. Maybe every so often an event would happen. For instance, maybe a mob or such would appear with extra health but very rewarding drops. Maybe have and ended dragon spawn. Maybe a heat appears filled with goodies. Maybe cookies rain from the sky. Anything that would be...
Thanks to another of PurelySatanic's wonderful plugins, you can now actually CATCH mobs! Now, if you throw a regular egg at a passive, non-tamed mob, you have a small chance of actually catching it! If you succeed, the mob will vanish, and a mob egg will appear in it's place. Now, of course, there are some caveats. It won't work on mooshrooms, we wanted to keep those a challenge to get. Also, if you catch a colored sheep, it gives you a regular mob egg, so the sheep that spawns won't be colored anymore.
EDIT: Temporarily disabled due to players abusing bugs in the plugin.
Ignore the fact that I said I would be absent in yesterday's post. This still remains true but I had such a great idea that I wanted to get it down on "paper" right away so we can get this baby started.
How would you like to directly impact the server and it's players? Well, now you can. Starting today and ending on April 20th at 12:00PM PST I will be accepting plugin ideas at email@example.com.
NOTE: Do not post ideas in this thread, I will not read them. Plugin idea discussion is acceptable but will not be considered as part of this 'contest'.
Assuming your plugin adheres to the guidelines listed below and it's something that can be implemented, I will take the 3-5 best plugin ideas and post them in a poll where you will be able to vote for the one you want.
This voting period will go from April 20th to May 1st 12:00PM PST, at which point I will take the top voted one and design and implement it for the server.
