Recently we had someone on my server die (he had not ever died) and he dropped so many exp orbs that anyone who was anywhere close to where they were dropped to 1 fps instantly and we cannot get close enough to collect them without completely lagging out.
this is what the console looks like.
someone please help my server is suddenly corrupt and the only backup I have will lose a lot of play time and make people upset.
I think this game would have been a lot better with a different production team. I mean if they sold it to blizzard or some rich juggernaut, updates would come out fast and the game wouldn't have been in beta for like 2 years.
Updates would be coming out but eventually it would get to easy and everyone will start to hate it. Plus who cares it the game has been in beta for 2 years you can still play it.
Although, Mojang needs to make it so the orbs combine when they are close to other orbs.
They should just take experience points away entirely this is a sandbox game not a rpg.
Also you don't have to go to the nether to kill yourself. Just make a suicide lava pit somewhere near a place all your players can get to easily. Put some chests near by and leave it up to everybody to off themselves in the pit when they've collected too much exp.
Is anyone using this to grief yet? Seems like it would work really well. Fight some mobs for a while, then go to your enemy's base and die, and no one can go near it. Presumably every operator of a public server has had to mod this out already.
