So there may be a way to get more players in the Skial MC server. Here are my suggestions: Plotworld, factions, and relaxed survival - These modes will make the server feel a little less same-old. In plotworld, players are spawned on a plot via warp (for example, /warp c). They'll be given creative when they enter the world itself and use /plot auto to claim a random spot for them to build at. Different ranks in-game could lead to players being able to claim more plots (up to 10). In faction world, players could make their own factions, build bases, and raid others. This would be a somewhat like an anarchy mode since griefing would be okay and PvP is always enabled. And then there's relaxed survival. This mode is for players that just want PvE and a fun survival experience. Perks and rank bonuses would apply to this world. Land claims would be available to players as needed, and they'd be able to claim more land with the more perks/ranks they have. Ranks, perks, and more! Everyone in-game that isn't an admin is the same "rank" so to speak, since there isn't any sort of hierarchy. Thus, if ranks are introduced, newly joining players and people that haven't bough a rank will be given a gray [Traveler] until they get something new. With ranks, players can donate to keep the server up while also getting rewards in each world. With that, both sides would get what they'd need. The server would get money to continue money, and the player that paid would get the bonuses of their rank. They'd have to be fairly priced, however. Nobody would wanna buy a $10 rank and get a miniscule amount of rewards. And yes, it is like that in some servers. I've found ranks that cost $110+ before. Poor bastards are robbing people. The most expensive would have to be a [Custom] rank where the player that bought it can set it as whatever they like as long as it's within the boundaries of whatever rules are set. So yeah. rank names and what is given with them will be determined by the staff team. Or you can buy individual perks for cheaper. This will give players with or without the standard rank a colored + depending on the perk that was bought. Veteran players (people that have been playing on the server for a full year) would be given a * if they had already bought a rank previously. If the player that gets given this hasn't previously bought a rank, it'll simply be put as [Veteran]. Add your ideas below! Maybe we'll see the server actually improve on there one day.
