Flenix Posted December 12, 2012 Share Posted December 12, 2012 Hey guys. We've just banned condensers from our server, and its apparently not the most popular of moves. So, I was wandering - what's your opinions? I'm looking mostly at other server admins here, but players can give their thoughts too (I'd appreciate if you say whether you're a localhost admin, dedi admin or player, so I just get an idea of who you are ) Before you post, hear my reasoning for disliking them. Bear in mind I'm thinking LONG HAUL here, frankly the people who only play a server for a week I don't care about, I care about the lasting player base who keep coming back. OK, so you join a survival minecraft server, the legit kind where the /give command is completely disabled even for admins. You look around, get a feel for what kind of server it is, and you find a nice place. Now, you have two options: Option 1: Spend a few in-game days mining, maybe get a quarry going. Gather all your resources, then start working on your house. You want a nice big wall around your house, so you make a second quarry or go mining to get enough cobblestone. In the process, you get a nice open underground area which you'll later use as storage or a dungeon. Option 2: Spend maybe 10 minutes mining to get enough for a condenser. Whack it in your shack, and generate everything you ever need for the rest of the game using a collector. You decide you want a 50 high cobblestone wall? A few bits of Nikolite (which we all know is easy to get) and you've got yourself a few full inventories of cobble and you're on your way. Option 2 is much quicker, easier and might at first seem tempting. But think about it - What do you do in this game called MINECRAFT? You mine, and you craft. Structures are always more impressive when built legit, because the people took the time and put effort into it. So, surely Option 1 will give you a lot more time playing the game to reach your goal, and in the end will feel much more satisfying! So at the end of it all, my question really comes down to this; What's the point?! If you want to build quickly, play a creative server where you can also fly and not take damage. If you still want the survival feel, play a non-legit survival where you have access to /give. What's your opinion? Do you think that every Tekkit server should always have condensers available, or would you embrace the idea of for once playing a server where you have all other awesome stuff, just you know people have got it fair and square. Also, I'm not saying that I removed all of EE, it was only the condenser and transmutation tablet. People can still make the jewelry etc. I'm also not saying "all servers should ban EE", I'm just saying my server did and I can't understand why every player dislikes the idea. Is the entire player base at this neck of the woods just obsessed with getting as much stuff as they can as fast as they can? One last note: People flaming, trolling, or being a general idiot, I'll just ignore. I want your opinions, and I've given mine - if you can't give a decent reason why all servers should use condensers, then don't post it :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
