idea for plugin

Post by X-Man » Wed Feb 11, 2015 1:09 pm

someone please steal this and make it.

siege plugin idea. not for this server, just and idea in general

basically bukkit, but instead of making protected blocks impenetrable, make them harder to break.

- rate of breaking on a claim depends on material but the rate must super long. like entire iron pick for 1 stone brick.
- containers are open to all, requiring they be place in protected areas
- claimed walls can have ladders placed on them
- wood doors would be a liability and can be set on fire. this would encourage iron.
- iron doors can be sieged but take longer.

the point of bukkit is protect builds from griefers, so it would be impractical to attack a house for material. but now attacks would mean the main goal is to get inside and raid containers. this would also encourage better mine building since floors are more vulnerable to tunneling. ladders and fire too would encourage actually sieges. sieges too would be more effective with more people. castle design would be more evolved (shooting spaces and murder holes)

i think too this mod would work better with enderpearling off. it would force you to think out defense and attack in a more practical real-life sort of way.

just an idea

We already have this sort of option available but disabled due general thoughts of the community.


Maybe they have changed over time though.

Problem with GP seige mode is there's many decorative builds whihc could be greifed using this method.

true, thats why i mentioned the increase in tool use. if an entire iron pick was needed to take out 1 block of stone brick, griefing isnt worth it. only worth breaking to make a tunnel of sorts

certian bricks like chisled stone could be made unbreakable, cant make a house out of that
