    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.
