CREATIVE FEATURES

Here's my list of things that could be better only on the Creative server of The Burrow since it is the only thing I've checked in the past two short days or so. Note that I am personally enjoying the server right now angel and would like to see it grow, so here's the list of things that might help. Here are the things that me and @PlebbleStone discussed about.

Another reason for this thread is to wake up the forums folks. 

 

     IMPROVED SPAWN

             THIS IS A MUST. UNFINISHED, UNFRIENDLY, BORING.

             A simple pretty spawn with all necessary information for a new comer.

         Well build plots around the spawn as an inspiration.

     IMPROVED COMMUNICATION

             BROADCASTS THAT ARE EASIER TO READ (ACTION BAR, BRIGHTER COLORS ETC.)

             Chat is currently really uninteresting and hard to read.

            I noticed that the broadcasts are very long and boring to read, instead try to use links and advise commands.

     PETS

             A GREAT THING TO EXPAND YOUR ONLINE SHOP AS WELL AS CHEER UP THE SERVER.

             Purchasable or unlockable pets by playtime or donations.

           Another simple reason to stay and play more. 

     BUILDER STARS

            STAFF REVIEWS PLOTS AND ADDS A STAR TO BUILDER (VIEWABLE IN CHAT PREFIX)

            This is really not necessary but would be interesting.

          Easier for professionals to recognize each other and colab.

          Also adds a competitive atmosphere to the community, which is always good.

                          BUILDER    ✯✯ EXPERT    ✯✯✯ GRAND

             At the end few of the best builders with those ranks could make a whole The Burrow Build Team,

          which both me and @PlebbleStone would more than love to see.

 

Looking forward to hear what you guys think about these features and fixes.

Hello,

Thanks for your suggestions! As always, constructive user feedback is really great to hear, whether it be positive (like this), or negative (in some situations).

I agree entirely with everything here, and here is what I plan to do from 2 weeks time after exams are over:

  • Command page on site with all main commands (as these are unclear currenly), with links at spawn & key commands on signs / holograms (more challenging due to wide range of protocols supported). I feel this is probably a priority
  • Spawn - updates - it is incomplete, however at the time of having it built was better than the road spawn we had - I believe that you started work on a spawn at one point, which I'll take a look at to see if it's suitable. I'll work on getting some of the plots near spawn to feature good builds - I claimed most of them when the server started so I'll get these switched over to build showcases too, which can change every so often.
  • Broadcasts - I've noticed not many people read them, so something needs changing. So the thing that needs working on by me is a balance between clear messages & not too annoying messages.
  • Pets - we had them at one stage, and I think it must have been a version incompatibility a few years back that got the plugin removed by me. No idea why I haven't added them back sooner, but I'll get these back - mostly as a donator perk, but maybe unlockable through other ways too (such as feedback like this smiley)
  • Builder ranks / build team - build team has been planned to be sorted after exams for a while, so I'll primarily look into this. In terms of builder ranks, that is something I will also consider, especially thinking through to one of the projects I have considered adding to the server, which would require a builder ranking system for it to work.

Keep an eye out from 2 weeks time for some changes, and let me know then whether things are heading in the right direction!

Matthew

Matt can you add ironelevators? Its basically iron blocks that can act as elevators. Very simple.

We've currently got this running: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-IT_ULndbE for elevators. Let me know if following that tutorial works, or whether I still need to fix things.
