I wish that everyone considers reading this as this will affect all server gameplay. For those unaware of the current situation, Minecraft or "Mojang" has decided that gameplay is NOT allowed to be changed for the benefit over other players. Hence, you are not allowed to have items that will result in change of gameplay, meaning we cant "give" you items.
What I would like to see that their be 'Publicly Available' Donator Map. This will differ from a standard map. You will not be able to/or be permitted to bridge items or permissions between the two maps. It states that donators and non-donator players are not allowed to be differentiated or have unfair advantages over each...
A new update with new structures means a new map (it's time for a change, anyway). In case you haven't heard, there is a new underground dungeon being added with an additional mob that inhabits the area. Personally, I want to go kill some nasty fishies in my soon-to-be house and don't want to travel thousands of blocks into new territory to do it.
With a new map, we will need a new spawn too. This idea is still in the works, there is no decision on if it should be built by our build team or by a select few members or by a single person. I can tell you that last time we let everyone just come in and build it didn't really work out. *cough* CurrentSpawnIsUgly *cough*
I'm opening a poll for the new map just to see what the community response is. If it's overwhelming that NO we do not need a new map, I will genuinely reconsider my stance on a new one. Let's see what you guys think.
