Should we Add Factions?

  1. No, Just make parties more advanced, Like in the origonal post.

  2. No, Factions and Parties are pure evil.

    There are some useful things to a group that we just don't have. I'm not sure how feasible programming them are, but:
    -Shared Bank between players.
    -Item Pool
    -Shared Homes (Allows people to use other party member's set homes)
    -Different levels of permission within a party

    EDIT: So, Factions is essentially a more in-depth party system. Sure, it has a bad-rap, but its not like the mod itself is the cause. The player-base is responsible for how well this develops, and anything negative that can happen with Factions already can happen with Parties.

    Additional Edit: Please note that I am NOT suggesting we removed any other mods, especially grief prevention. The goal of adding factions would be purely to enhance the party system, since it has a lot of features that would appeal to groups, especially large ones.

    Reduces usefulness of donations -1
    If the group wanted to buy something expensive they could give all their money to 1 player to buy it, not really necessary to combine the balances

    I like the idea of different levels of permissions. Such as a party admin, mod, and members.

    Maybe instead of a party being able to use their sethomes, we could implement a sethome that the party could use. (Everyone in the party could tp to the specified base)

    +1 to some of the ideas.

    The Item Pool would be an inventory everyone can access at any time, essentially. Or maybe make it a special block you can buy that is like a shared ender-chest.

    The shared bank is just having combined currencies, or the ability to share your money with another. For example, me and DTK share quite a bit of resources, with me usually handling trade (selling) and him handling the buying. And we both have our own intrests in the auction. This makes things difficult, because I can't just give him all the money in case someone bids a spawner, for example, because I want to buy that to, and someone might sell them in a higher bulk than I can afford, and I can't just keep it all for myself and give it as needed, because I might not be around.

    So... You want factions.

    I mean, you can already do this with a claim so I don't really see the point of this. lol

    I'm sorry but all I can see with a shared bank is one selfish person spending huge portions of the money since it's "shared"

    Welp. I guess I do want factions. I mean, we pretty much already HAVE factions, just in a much messier way.

    The shared bank thing would probably be between players rather than between parties XD I just find it could be super convenient for close pairs or groups

    If that becomes a problem all you would need to do is remove them from the "bank account".

    and at that point you would still have lost a bunch of money when a shared bank is something that isn't needed in the first place .-.

    I mean to play devil's advocate here, If you trust someone in your claim/bank or whatever, if they backstab you and steal stuff that's on you not the feature itself.

    I still see no point to the shared item pool or money pool unless the market actually has items/perks worth purchasing in the first place.

    Minecraft also isn't needed, if you want to go down that path :p
    It's not about needs. It's about convenience, entertainment, and pleasure.

    What kind of argument is this? This isn't Tumblr imo.

    There isn't really anything useful in the current market that you can even spend your money on other than the two commands. There really isn't any reason currently to pool money together, items maybe but not actual currency.

    There are reasons, you just don't agree with them:

    Silent means /sethome sharing, not claim trust.

    Please enlighten me on what else there is to buy other than items such as elytras and shulker boxes or other random end game things. I'm referring to other things such as services or perks that you can purchase such as the /ec command and silk spawners.

    Ummm shared bank ≠ Shared /sethome

    Maybe you just didn't read the post correctly. He's asking for a way to share currency/items with another player, which you can already do by claiming an area and put a chest inside ( for example make a Vault out of obsidian or something and fill it with chests, want to share rare items? only allow certain individuals access to this claim). Otherwise I'd say we get a chest locking plugin such as lockette or something similar.

  20. In my opinion factions isn't really my cup of tea, yea it has good qualities like people working together and whatnot and more interaction between other players. But I feel like most of the time you can't just be alone or else you're screwed (from other higher level factions) and that's it. Maybe towny instead? It's sorta similar to what everyone's talking about. And it has quite a lot of aspects that are being asked for in this thread. One that I really liked is letting the groups expand and join with each other to become bigger and a more open community. As well as being able to share things and teleport to their town, etc.

    I usually try to stay away from faction servers as most of the time it's a constant power struggle for any group of players fighting over being on the top. While that might be exciting to some people I think it would be an extreme change to the server if we were to introduce factions completely, or even towny. But it's just my own tastes to have a simple server that fulfills simple needs :p

    :oops: Please be gentle, I'm not hating on this. I'm giving it a +0.5 cause I'm sorta half and half on this
