Site Admin & Server Owner
I wanted to grab some opinions on whether we should completely disable water/lava/TNT/Fire on the build server, to help alleviate griefing. Only cast a vote if you are a regular on the Build server!
Sorry. That sounds ridiculous. If you're afraid of TNT, don't use it yourself. Griefing is already restricted.Rain said:The idea would be for the crafting of TNT to be restricted (if possible, though the whole idea does revolve around this) but before this is done admins ect. people of SgtSpike's choosing would gather vast amounts of TNT to be stored in a maximum security hold. As the crafting itself of TNT would be restricted, some users would still want to get hold of TNT and they have just reason to do so (some of them at least, which is why this method would be implemented). Anyone with access to the hold (far far away, with private warps would get TNT on request of a user and exchange it for the materials used required to craft up some TNT. So the two parties would meet and the customer with a need for TNT would drop 4 blocks of sand and 5 pieces of sulphur (gunpowder) unto one of the chosen people who is online at the time. And then he/she would drop TNT unto the customer. There are many other variables that could be used as well like a signboard at spawn with all those who are dealers of TNT.
I agree with Kiwinz.Kiwinz said:Lava, flint and tnt should be vip only
With plugins that work to control this.. also the fire not spreading and lava does not cause fires would be usefull
TNT is incredibly rare on the build server, since mobs are turned off. Have to have had it in your inventory from long ago.Rain said::lol: That's fine mate you don't have to apolagize, You're entitled to you'r own opinion and to be honest after thinking about it for a bit it sounded rather long winded and complicated. Maybe leaving it is fine as it is quite hard to acquire anyway and quite rare for someone to come home from a hard day at work and find their family standing outside the remains of their nice family home blown up! :lol:
I guess I'll let SgtSpike decide but I never really thought it would be used anyway
Too confusing.oliverw92 said:Ok my two ideas for this:
1. Disable fire, tnt and lava for regulars, give VIPs and up access to them.
2. Create a 'builder' class. Non-regulars would not have anything (no tnt, lava, water or fire). Builders are trusted regulars and can have access to fire, water and lava. To become a builder you must have been playing for at least a week on the server and have two vips or mods vouch for you.
