Disclosure: These are just my thoughts, because DatPixel is in a scary stage and it makes me feel uneasy. I feel it is better to write thoughts than let them grind away at me. This is in server suggestions, as it's a suggestion that is an alternative to the death of DP. ------------------------------------- I know the worst hasn't happened yet, but factions is dead (0 players), towny is joining it(10players at most, majority are alt grinders), and roleplays economy is ruined ( I have heard ). I remember having 30 people I knew play Towny daily, doing new stuff every day, it was great. Now its just alt accounts grinding endlessly, with maybe 1 project happening within the community, and maybe some new player joining but immidiately leaving due to how stale it is. As an alternative to this, why not just server reset, merge Towny and Roleplay into one mode, remove factions, reset the economy, give all current players ranks equivalent to their own except just lower, say -2/3 ranks. Also, make a few ranks higher prices, both RP and Towny are plagued by max-rank players, it'd be nice to have a higher ceiling. This merger allows all staff members from both gamemodes to be active on the one server, allowing an already quite nice chat to be completely clean, and all new players feel welcomed by them all, meaning some may actually stay and grow a playerbase, invite friends, that sort of thing. The server would be towny command server with a roleplay feel, something unique within all of these roleplay clones I have been seeing recently. This will allow DatPixel to remove the dead endgame we've seem to hit, which is destroying entertainment, and the playerbase. Of course this will be unpopular for the veterans, but whats more important, some veterans having alts being the only players online and the server being shut down due to it being non-profitable, or having a FRESH server, with new players and new profit opportunities, allowing much more for DatPixel. Everyone enjoys the journey to completion, but the feelings fade when there is nothing to do. This is just an idea, but for everyone here I feel this would be better than seeing DP die after so many memories being made. I love this place and is the sole reason I keep playing any games to this date. I wouldn't forget this place and the friends I've made here. I'd love to hear over peoples thoughts on this. This is of course a last measure for DP. Thank you.
