    Hey guys,

    just thought I'd post some info about what we could do in 1.8 for survival.

    Ideas:

    Map reset

    While this will sadly wreck our builds, it will allow for new 1.8 terrain to be generated smoothly.
    Pro: fresh start for everybody
    Con: everybody would loose their stuff

    Different world for 1.8 terrain

    An alternative would be setting up a new 1.8 terraub world and keeping the current one, either with same or seperate inventories.
    Pro: everybody can keep their valuables
    Con: messed up terrain generation

    Economy reset

    The economy would be reset and be replaced with a brand new one using balanced prices.
    Pro: less economy exploits, money using job exploits (soulsand :p) and eco exploits would be removed
    Con: even legit money would be lost

    Removal of jobs
    The jobs plugin would be removed as it is really old and bugged. It also allows for eco exploits.
    Pro: less bugs, money wouldn't be as worthless, other ways of getting money (trading, shops) would be promoted

    Con: no jobs

    Enchant system

    The current enchant system was removed due to it being really buggy. A new enchant system could be added which would allow for funny things (e.g. Aqua Affinity on axe = Blindness for hit player)
    Pro: more stuff could be done with enchantments
    Con: ?

    These are all the things I can remember/come up with. I will try to add more ideas to this main post as the thread develops. If you don't like an idea of another person, go ahead and tell them in a civilized way without insulting but with explanation where the idea could be improved. A simple "no that idea is bs" will not help anybody.

    Anyway, that's it for this post :p

    The problem with money transfer also is that due to economy exploits certain people are very, very rich now.

    I like the idea of the fresh reset. I think it will give everyone a reason to play. Also I think you should get money buy selling things to the admin shop or other players. For example, farming could be important because you can sell sugarcane at the adminshop opposed to relying on jobs which I honestly wasn't too fond of. I think the market should sell/buy most items to make for a cool economy.

    Edit: Any news on how long survival will take to update? Im really itching to get playing again.

    Due to the bukkit takedown, we will most likely be switching to Sponge. There is no ETA for that tho.

    As previously stated it needs to be reset if we have 1.8 and plus people started to think it was becoming stale because of those elites trying to make the survival stock market crash with their monopolies *HACK WHEEZE COUGH JEREMY* excuse me. If anything resetting will bring the popularity of survival back up. We don't want to have a server that doesn't get attention it deserves.

    Inventories would be nice if they were be able to be transferred. Excuse my bad grammer

    We will most likely have a complete reset so everybody gets a fair start. The economy will have balanced prices so hopefully no exploits will be found.
