    I support the idea of having a controlled staff area PVP. I truly think that there will be a large number of players that would support this idea considering it is in a controlled environment. WE could do a trial run with it and see if it creates too much negativity? We could create a Poll on the forums for it?

    Towny sounds interesting. Although I am a loner by nature the idea of having towns here and there is kinda cool. Idea- it would be neat if towns could somehow attract/acquire villagers. -creating towns could lead to rivalries and an increase in competitive mindsets... but that's not necessarily a bad thing as long as folks keep it civil.

    I know that live map is too much of a bandwidth hog to be re-instated, but if towns start getting built here and there would it be possible to get an occasional render of the map posted on the site.

    I like the idea of having towns in the server, due to so many players joining and wishing to play with others, having towns created is an olive branch to these players, and will likely make the server thrive more with higher player retention, as it stands we have some town-not-a-towns that demand the owner of said town to be around to advertise their town which is troublesome in many ways be it global flooding and no exposure. Towny plugin will fix that by giving the exposure. Regarding town wars that were touched on, sounds like fun, IH rules aren't going to change to, thus toxic players won't be able to stay on this wonderful server.

    I'll be completely honest here. I hate the chunk thing. I personally prefer to do it blocks at a time rather than chunks.

    Everything else I love. Just... yea. Not the buy by the chunk.

    I love towny and have been wanting to build a successful town with it for yeeeeaaars so yea I'm excited about it being implemented here. I'll definitely be putting out that extra large olive branch here soon.

    I like the idea of a trial run for wars. See if people can be civil about it first. Lol

    I do want a live map. I know and agree, a lot of bandwidth. But, with the implementation of towny I can see it as being very beneficial as it will be easier to see where the towns are for deciding which one to join and if you get lost trying to find your town and whatnot. Also, I just love live maps in general and think they should be a staple to every non pvp server.

    New rule? Add a day for every time someone asks.

    Yes, folks, we're all eager to play in the new sandbox, but asking the equivalent of, "Are we there yet?" serves no constructive purpose at all. It will be ready when it's ready.

    i like landlord and only use about 20 chunks to build a massive castle that 3 people in total use. it would not benefit me to add towny to the server and would make playing for me more complicated than i would like.

    Howdy,
    I haven't been on much in the past like, forever... but I came on the webpage today to see when a map reset was happening and looks like I may be just in time.

    With that, I think Towny sounds awesome and I think the idea of towns participating in arena based PvP is equally as awesome. As a returning player, I'm actually pretty excited about it (and the new instances). I've usually been a bit of a lone builder as I like to large projects that I never complete, but this sounds like it will add a whole new level of game play to IH.

    It adds a new progression path for players: create the best town on the server. Unlike a lot of other things in minecraft, you can't just go grind and farm stuff to make the best town. It takes a new kind of co-operation between players, and depending on the level of co-operation the results can be amazing. But you'll also have to be the best in the arena as well! Last time I was on a lot of people were interested in PvP, and a controlled PvP arena is a great way to do that. That way you can still claim bragging rights without worrying about losing all your best gear and creating very unhappy situations.

    It also makes room for new contests! Like a town monument content: Participating towns build a statue/momument (or any theme really) in their town and the staff judges them like any other build (just you have to get the materials yourself!). Or an arena pvp tournament: assign brackets and fight until one team is the winner!

    As far as taxes go, 100 gold per day is nothing. If you have even just a handful of residence, 1000 gold a day would be nothing. But it's a good way to make sure towns stay active, necessary I would say.

    Anyways, glad you're still here Disc. I look forward to playing again. Towny sounds awesome.

    Dude... Just get on because the restart happened ages ago. You're really late to the party.

    I love the towny idea. It the most fun part of MC for me. I have been on for a bit and have been more of a "loner" in my builds. Would love to have the collaborative aspect and this seems to make that natural. You get my vote.
