    posted a message on How do you feel when you see unoriginal servers become successful?

    Does it bother you when a server with absolutely nothing unique about it, ripping off spawns from popular servers, etc. become popular themselves? I know of one server (not going to name it) that gets at least $20 in donations per day yet offers nothing unique, ripped off SaicoPVP's spawn, charges $100 for ranks, pay to win crap. Not to mention the staff stalks everybody in vanish mode, doesn't help out people at all yet harasses them when people share Skype usernames in PMs because "they could be doing it to advertise other servers"


    Just doesn't make sense how that server became popular. They don't even have any special events. The owner is just a kid. Got lucky. I'm sure he spends it all on himself, because I haven't seen any server improvements since I came across the server in January. Even found his account on Spigot. Too cheap to even pay for a custom plugin somebody offered to make for $5.

    posted a message on Per World Prefixes

    I have a Factions world opening up and I'd like prefixes to only be seen in that world. I'm currently using EssentialsChat, PermissionsEX, MultiWorld, and MultiInv for world management. Is there any chat plugin that allows per world prefixes?

    posted a message on Can I sell perks that are already in games?

    I got a couple custom plugins made. Instead of selling permissions, all players have the same permissions. There's now just command costs for commands like repair, enchant, tnt, etc. Also got a plugin made to give players EP per time played, all configurable. I set it to turn on during Friday night to Sunday night. Then of course 100 EP for everybody every $1K donated. I don't think there should be any complaints in selling EP for $1.

    Way I see it, according to the EULA, as long as the perk or item can be obtained by non-paying players within reason (eg, not taking 6 months to save up for a 2$ perk), then selling perks/items is fine.

    Basically, you have to allow free2play players to get everything that donators can get.


    Well currently I have it set for $1 donation for 5 EP, which is how much a player can earn per day by voting. I also plan to set milestones so every $1,000 donated, all players can redeem 100 EP for free. And on weekends, players also earn 1 EP per hour played. And also plan on adding holiday events like login on Christmas for 100 free EP. I don't see how selling 5 EP for $1 would affect gameplay for non-paying players.

    Do you do server banners?

    Type Of Request: A server banner. Doesn't have to be gif.

    IGN:

    Skin:

    Details: Could you just have my server name in the middle with Creative Mode and SurvivalGames on the left and Factions and Survival on the right? Server name is EpicEco. Not picky about design, but would prefer it to not be too neon colorish.

    PlayerPoints seems to have a really simple API. I can probably make a give all command if you want one.


    I decided to make an event shop in my Bossshop plugin. Whenever I reach milestone goals of donations, I will add a one time free shop item like 20 diamond, 5 EP, etc.


    Do you happen to know of any event reward plugin though? Like say I want to have a special event this weekend, like login on Sunday and receive 20 diamond. Is there any plugin for that? Or play 10 hours through date-date and win EP. A lot of indie FPS games I play have such events like 100% + GP Easter weekend and would be cool to have it on a Minecraft server.

    As far as I know, giving benefits that change gameplay to everyone when a condition is met is allowed, so giving everyone EP when a donation goal is met should be just fine. I can't say how easy or hard it will be to implement without knowing what plugin/other thing handles EP.


    I'd have no idea. I use PlayerPoints plugin for EB. I don't know if it has a give all command. How hard would it be to make a plugin that fetches all usernames on the server and runs the give command for each? I can trigger it manually as I keep track of donations.

    posted a message on Can I sell perks that are already in games?

    I've yet to set up a donation shop because I don't really like Mojang's EULA agreement, but many players are requesting it. I have two forms of currency on my server. GP which is earned by selling items in games, and EP which is earned by voting. With EP, players can buy permissions like enderchest anywhere, extra home limits, hats, back command, fly for 7 days, factions power, griefprevention claim blocks, etc. Players are requesting me to set up a buy shop so they can buy EP because they can only make 5 a day for voting. From my understanding, you can't do that. You also can't sell items or features that affect gameplay. Well it's really not affecting anything. Players can have the features just by voting. Is it against the EULA to sell hats, set home limits, etc.? Is there a way I could set up a monthly donation goal and if it's met, everybody gets x EP?

    Request:

    Details On How It Should Look:

    I have a few, but they shouldn't take long. I'd like text images for my ad posts on forums. Such headers like Why You Should Join, Our Goals, Plugins, Gamemodes, etc. I'd prefer something easy to read, but also stands out. I'd also like a server banner with gifs showing our different gamemode. We have Factions PvP, Survival PvE, Creative, Skyblock, Skywars, SurvivalGames, and MobArena. Again, as long as it's easy to read but also catches the eye.
    Time Frame: 2-3 weeks is fine.
    Skin Or IGN: You can contact me on Skype. Just PM me your username on here.

    About EpicEco

In the mean time, we are recruiting some members.

If that bums you out, then move along. The Mod's duty is to moderate the world they moderate for.

    posted a message on EpicEco | Builders Wanted

    Our server, EpicEco has a few positions waiting to be fufilled. The server is fully funded for 50 players.

    Our server has SurvivalGames, MobArena, Survival PvP, and a Creative World. It is economy based, means you earn money to buy cool things like ranks, mob spawners, spawn eggs, mob disguises, and more. You also receive PlayerPoints by voting which you can spend on mcMMO Credits, claim blocks, ItemCases, and more. We use GriefPrevention for Survival and Creative Worlds. Claim blocks are accured with play time or bought with PlayerPoints. Build a town and share trust with friends. You can also attack other players with GriefPrevention's Siege PvP mode so it's kind of like a stripped down Factions server. I plan to allow WorldEdit within player's claims in CreativeWorld in the future.


    We are seeking beta players to join our server. It is currently whitelisted but will be lifted once we go public. I'd like a few players with a lot of time to just play on our server, make sure everything works well, etc. I would prefer you to be a guild/clan member to invite your friends. Beta players who refer friends will receive free VIP rank once we go public.


    We are seeking a few builders. We already have a spawn built, but I would love a new perspective. There is no builder rank, OP, or staff position. I would just like to let a few people have WorldEdit permissions on a private world to let them build whatever they like. Players who stick around and contribute would be considered for staff postions later on as needed. Things I am currently interested in is a server spawn town. We currently just have a UFO in the sky. I'd like a town where players can have shop booths (we use BetterShops), more space for tutorials, possibly a casino, etc. We are also interested in custom maps for SurvivalGames and MobArena. I have no preference on theme, I just prefer resource friendly builds. I don't like 200 block wide/tall castles with 50 million trapdoor glowstone lights, item frames, and signs everywhere. It prevents players with less than stellar computers playing on our server due to all the lag.


    We are also seeking a graphic artist. We are in need of logos and artwork for our Buycraft shop, a banner, and any other little projects.



    Name:
    IGN:
    Age:
    Skype (Google Hangouts if no Skype):
    Why Do You Want To Contribute To Our Server?:
    Past Experience: Post server links you've built on, your own server, etc.
    Examples of Work: Post screenshots of at least 2 different builds.
