Hide your wives and children.
That’s right folks, after much waiting, an official Recommended Build of CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.2.4 has been released. It will still be a few days before plugins have been updated to be fully compatible, but I’m scouring the list and seeing what we can add/drop/replace etc. Some of our plugins will no longer function, so we’ll need to find alternatives.
Which brings me to my next topic: Where do we want to go from here?
We’ve been sailing along with the server in its current format, watching it grow and gain new worlds, new plugins, new features, and I feel that we’ve reached the peak of what we’re able to do with our current setup. I’d like you to all think about what you’d like to change, in terms of gameplay. Here are my thoughts:
I’d like to have some sort of theme. I’ve played on a few Prison Servers that were quite fun. Then there are Faction Servers, which I’ve heard good things about but never actually tried. There are anarchy servers which I’m not really a fan of, but just tossing it out there as an example. Obviously, any veteran members will have the choice of participating in said theme, or just doing their own thing and keep on keepin’ on. Whatever we do, I’d like to incorporate an economy system of some sort, as many people have requested it in the past.
So what do you think? And I’m not looking for individual plugins here, just a general idea of gameplay; I’ll worry about finding the plugins that will allow us the style of gameplay that we’re looking for.
