So I'm looking for some ideas, brainstorming if you will, for things we can do to spice up the server NOTE: I am aware that one thing we need is advertising. That is in the works, but I have to redo our branding since it was lost along with my stolen laptop Ideas / Topics for discussion: - Community Events So this is a no-brainer, but I'm wondering what we should do? Streams are questionable because of Bland and I's schedules. Probending is also a planned event, but I'm still waiting on the plugin to be fixed. I would also like to utilize our plug.dj room for plug.dj nights (we play dj roulette while enjoying the server, would include contests maybe for things like the most upvotes on a song). Ideas for events that involve the server? Also, I am considering expanding the staff team to include "Support Staff" that would be responsible for things like event management, building, artists, etc. Would anyone be interested in a role for running/helping to run events? - Arenas This is something I want to address, as I understand the importance of having at least a basic arena in place. I have an idea for how I want to go about getting a new arena: A contest. Would anyone be interested in participating in a build contest? Participants could potentially be the pioneers for the Support Staff builders too - Things to spice up gameplay? I'd like to stick as close to our original server purpose as possible: community-based bending survival experience That being said, what can we do or add to make that more fun? To give it longevity? To make it something people could stream or make series of? Some of my points of interest: - Creative world: I'm not sure how interesting creative plots are anymore, but its something to consider. Thoughts? - Minigames?: This one I am not too fond of because we would really need a hub server to pull it off successfully, and it would take a lot of time + money for that to happen. Unless someone has a really good/creative idea for how this could be done reasonably with our current setup, I don't really foresee this working. - Skyblock: I don't know if anyone still enjoys Skyblock, but it sounds like it could be an interesting venture with bending. Maybe also with some sort of achievement/quest-based reward system. Something like this: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/askyblock.1220/ - Some plugins I was looking at for survival: Mythic Mobs: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/mythicmobs.5702/ It allows me to create custom bosses that can be set to spawn in the survival world, with custom drops and everything. MyPet: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/mypet-premium.17566/ This plugin would substitute for echopet and would fit the survival theme more. I'll have to figure out how to balance it as a donor perk but it looks really cool. More enchantments: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/crazy-enchantments-new-gkitz.16470/ Seems kind cool, could also make a cool donor perk. City World: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/cityworld.2250/updates This would generate a random "City World" for further exploration and fun. Idk if this is something that would work out, but it's an idea none-the-less. Any other ideas? Thoughts? Comments? Please feel free to share your input and responses to this post, I am looking for as much input as possible!
