    Since the payout, Factions has averaged 4-5 people online.

    Where are all the supporters of this suggestion?

    I suggest you to enable printer in schematica for 1 map and look if more players will play.

    Yeah of course. While we're at it let's also enable fightbot and x-ray. Then people could let the game be played for them! I can create a full faction of accounts that don't even have players!

    Why is Printer not allowed? How is it an "unfair advantage". Every faction server out there allows printer. Is it an unfair advatange because "not everyone has it so it will be unfair"?

    Better Sprint / ToggleSprint is allowed, which provides a very large advantage over people who do not have it. If someone doesn't have it and is fighting someone who does, that's a disadvantage.
    The same thing is happening here with Printer, so if you aren't going to allow printer, might as well blacklist all the other mods that provide advantages over players who aren't using it.

    If you're saying its just doing it for them, printer is basically only used for cannons, which are very very hard to make especially by hand. Maybe make a rule where its only allowed for building cannons.
    [​IMG]
    Building cannons like this, especially 3 wall shots and everything to do with the barrels, is not an easy thing to do by hand.

    Theres already genbuckets that **automatically** build the walls for them. Might as well remove those too since its doing something for someone.

    We're quite off topic. If you want to make a huge to do about printer, I suggest making your own thread.

    Toggle sprint is a huge advantage, because sprinting is so hard to do in Minecraft? Sorry, I can't get behind this logic. I mean sure, it provides a big speed advantage on creative. #BlacklistItNow

    I mean, Kill-Aura is primarily used at mob grinders where it gets incredibly tedious and straining to the hand to click constantly. Maybe we could also make a rule to allow mob-aura only inside of private faction grinders?


    To be clear, I'm not fully against the idea of Printer being allowed. But let's not pretend it's the same as allowing ToggleSprint or Gen Buckets. If you want my honest opinion, I think it'd be cooler to have a Schematic plugin built into the server that drops the schematics at Koths. Then you could get your Printer without having to be the one building (could start the build and go on about other things), have a reason to fight at koths to get cannon schematics, and it can validate that you have the required materials and take them from you on launch. This just sounds more appealing to me, but hey, you want what you want.

    Placing blocks is so hard? Because that’s all the printer is.
    And no killaura is used in pvp. Autoclickers are used at grinders

    Printer takes complex block placement and makes it as easy as being afk. So yes. It's hard. Wasn't there just a big discussion mocking faction players fo placing blocks wrong? :)

    Complex is making them face a certain direction?
    Printer isn’t such a game breaking thing. Many other factions servers use it
    And if ur talking about peedogs making their base wrong that had nothing to do with block placement, only the design of the base being flawed. If not, I’d like to know what happened

    So, here is what comes out of all this discussion:
    Printer should be added because it's not different than Toggle Sprint. Add printer, it only places blocks for you! Other factions servers allow it!

    There is no substance to this suggestion. On the contrary, printer is incredibly time saving and takes a large item like a cannon that needs to be built a certain way in order to function properly and turns it into a 1-click afk task. No matter how many times you toggle sprint on or off, the mod isn't running around and killing shit for you. You still have to do all that on your own and put in the effort yourself.

    IF ANYONE wants Printer mod added, my advice would be to STOP posting in this thread about it, where it's off topic and should be deleted, and go make a suggestion thread with substance on WHY it would be beneficial and WHY it should be added. Not how it compares to Toggle Sprint or Gen Buckets, but how it would actually benefit the server without giving disadvantages to players that don't have it.

    Now please, stop with the replies in this thread unless they are ON TOPIC.

    No, I want someone to make a point that has validity in a thread that isn't someone else' topic.

    @creeper1561 They clearly want things their own way, which I understand.

    Move onto an actual real factions server like DecimatePvP. Jovanhon already plays there and his faction just won ftop 1 (Flamingos)

    I gave a clear alternative to your suggestion that would give you want you want, and advised on how to actually pitch a suggestion (which someone else tried to do for you) and this is all you can come back with? And people say it's the IJAH staff that don't listen.

    Payout is the unofficial end of the map, you know that right?
    Nobody sticks around after that
    The proposal would to extend payout time and subsequently increase map time
    Also I never personally agreed with a statement, it was in defense of my friend. I only pointed out a fact as the maps have been constantly getting shorter to the point where one can assume that the map would reset within the time frame of a week as per the usual last reset. The downtime in between is so that you dont have to constantly reset factions at a specified date that was announced as the payout day.

    If you mean one thing, you can't write another thing.

    What I read is "the map is too short", but apparently now it means "the payout is too quick".

    You "defending" your friend with a snarky reply makes you guilty by association.

    And yes, the resets have been getting shorter, because people stop playing.

    I believe that 1 month, as it has been now, is enough time. Thanks owners.
