Ok, I know it seems crazy, but hear me out. This isn't possible yet, but this is a suggestion to start looking for a Mod that allows you to choose what mobs can spawn on a map. With this new update, alot of the features require that Bad mobs are activated. String for your dispensers, and bone to make use of all the colors of dye. I know myself and a few others on the temp map would like to be able to use all of the colors to really make our buildings look better, and that is only possible with mobs turned on. Post your opinions here as well as possible solutions to this problem. This Poll is to see where the rest of the community stands on turning on mobs in build server. NOTE** This is not to make the build server the same as PVP. All rules would remain the same, no attacking players!

THIS POLL IS NOT ABOUT PLAYER DAMAGE. That issue can be brought up in a separate poll at a later date. Again, this is only to make all crafting options available.
**Also Note** according to Soc and Oli, the mob selection is built into Hey0, so it will not be an extra mod we have to run, or wait for a fix after updates.
****EDIT 3**** Hey0 is no longer being fixed by official team, So we're back to hoping Bukkit has same options, or we will look for the mod/plugin.

I know Hey0 has the feature, but with Hey0 going down soon, and possibly not working, we need to know a working mod will be there for this update*
this is more to find out the feelings of the community on the subject without assuming any other mods will be updated before Bukkit is released

I would say, either find another mod or just turn on all the mobs.

If we find another mod which lets us only activate certain enemies, thatd be good. We should probably just turn on everything, on the other hand, so that people can craft all of the items.

Then again, the resurgence of Creepers would provide griefers with the deadliest griefing tool out there, dynamite.

Just my 2 cents :)

*TNT


But also having mobs on the build server, completely destroys the point of it being a build server. Which is why if you want lots of gunpowder, arrows or string you go on the pvp server. Having mobs on the build server would deter people away to other build servers, I voted for the server to stay as it is.

(TNT is dynamite, haha)

Well, I was moreso thinking along the lines of having mobs but taking no damage.
That, or we just find a mod to only allow certain mobs and disallow Creepers and Skeletons to spawn.

Re: **Poll**Crazy? Mobs on Build?**

the problem with tnt is why i still want tnt banned, and even creepers turned off if thats possible so the world isnt cratered due to people luring Creepers.
And Saying to go to pvp for string isn't what im looking for. With the colored blocks, you need some items that are only dropped by mobs to actually craft them.
To have full freedom to build what we want, with all the decorative items notch put in, we need to have at least the skeletons turned on to get the bones.

We can still keep damage off, and it will still be build, only we will be able to craft all the colored blocks.

and sure, everything is on in pvp, but your also unable to build anything in that environment to show other people without the real danger of it getting griefed. even getting griefed without consequence, if you can even manage to build it without getting robbed.

I think this is a good idea, so I'm glad to see the majority of voters feel the same way.

We should be able to implement mobs while ensuring that players go undamaged. I'm sure an anti-creeper plugin will also become available shortly after hmod is updated.

Re: **Poll**Crazy? Mobs on Build?**

Yea, skeletons are pretty much the only ones needed.

Perhaps an idea? I know you don't like making things not natural... but if you were to use your admin tools and create a skeleton spawner somewhere in spawn, that is cuboided so they can't be released into the wild, you go in, kill the skeletons for the bones you need, head home. No need for anything but that and squid to make the dyes, correct?

While this may be sligthly off-topic, I do want to bring it up here.

Once the Nether becomes available in SMP, I would recommend we try to make it so the Nether's enemies still spawn. So the Nether at least has some fun to it, even if you cant die. The Nether just doesn't have any luster without the adorable cries of the floating jellyfish. :D

Ok let's clear something up:

Hey0 has mob control built in - you simply edit the line 'enemymobs' (i think its called that) to set which enemy mobs you want to spawn on the server. If you want just skeletons, then you only put skeletons on that line. I'm pretty sure this feature will pass on to Hey0's replacement - Bukkit. If it does, we need no plugins or other mods to allow just a few enemy mobs.


I am all for enemy mobs except for creepers.

I've edited thread title, as well as Poll Name to clear up a couple things that have come up. This poll was just to implement the mobs into the server, not to change any rules or health or damage. If you would Like damage turned on, add that in your comments, thanks.

The problem with using a mod to allow us to choose mob types is that each time a patch comes out the mod will break, and mobs will need to be turned off entirely.

Lordi, read my post :) It isn't a mod, it is built into hey0 and i'm pretty sure it will be built into Bukkit too.
