Currently, the server as a whole is suffering from quality of life issues, a large amount of toxic players, and most importantly, some ideas that tend to be ignored or forgotten. This forum post is going to aim to list many small, medium, and maybe even complicated ideas that could improve the server in general. Also, this is my forum post, and I'm not the best writer, so keep that in mind while reading. Starting off small, iron trapdoors should be interactable by hand. That's how privated iron doors work at the moment, and allowing trap doors to be right clickable would appease many builders on the server who usually use worldedit to make their redstone related contraptions work without a power source. Trapdoors can be privated anyway (at least, I think) so it wouldn't cause many issues for practical use. Second, party chat should be overhauled. The MCMMO system currently implemented is garbage, and should be replaced. Plugins for easy party chat are already out there, so it shouldn't be that hard to implement. Third, the lobby for the main server needs to be completed or removed. A while back, we updated to a new lobby, but it was incomplete, and it features 0 opportunities for a powder hunt ever again. The previous lobby had a ton of cool secrets, including a parkour course and an entrance into the ocean. Now, we have a parkour course that lets you tour the disgusting exterior of the lobby. What happened to exploring the insides of homes? What happened to investigating boats? This lobby either needs some serious modifications, which could include finishing the backside, and adding many shops and homes, like the plots lobby mall, or replacing it with the old one or even an entirely new one. Fourth, the 'theft of animals in claims' rule should be enforced or removed. A lot of reports about horses or villagers being stolen are commonly found in reports and help, but nothing, absolutely nothing, is ever done about it. Either enforce it, or remove it from the list of rules. As an extension, animals that have saddles and armor equipped should not be able to have the items on top stolen by riding on them. A plugin that only let owners of animals and trusted users interact with animals owned by that user would be nice. Fifth, abandoned towns. Drew already looked at this idea, but the premise is that when a town falls, instead of becoming unclaimed, outsider perms are turned on for 24 hours, and the town then collapses. This would help with the current /t claim war that is present in any town that ever falls, and it wouldn't be that much code to set up outsider perms and a timer. Sixth, there needs to be a ticket system. Even a placeholder discord bot would be nice, but reports and help just ends up being conversation after conversation. Seventh, the loot tables for voting should be released. This could be as simple as making it available on the mcatlas website, or as complicated making it a sponsor command. On the topic of loot tables, horse armor should also be added to the list of things that can be gained from voting, because the only way to get horse armor now is to x-ray for dungeons. Eighth, some kind of development blog should be made for features that are currently being worked on. Dropping them as some big reveal is just not what the players want. The staff team isn't Nintendo trying to drive up hype for a big game you should buy. It's free features they're making for a server, and I don't want to have to wait months on end for the 'war is almost done' announcement. Also, GitHub development doesn't count. Finally, we need a restricted chat and a way to stop bypassing. My proposal is that we add both, and it's a compromise. The bypass filter bot should be buffed significantly, I'm sure that could be figured out. Restricted chat would be a compromise, and it would be a feature on the discord that allows users to swear, make inappropriate jokes, all that, but to an extent. You know what I'm talking about. Adding these things together would hopefully stop the endless amount of bypass reports and satisfy the older players who want a more mature chat. Number fifteen add war and end I believe that if all of these features were implemented into the server and its additional media, the server would be a significantly more enjoyable place. The large stuff can take a year or two, I don't care, but we should be able to get smaller updates while we wait. So yeah, add some smaller, highly requested stuff, before the bigg things.
