I expect this idea will be shot down fairly quickly, but I did want to float it in any case. I was wondering if there would be some way to allow access to /god for players (or something similar), whether the command be purchased, or part of a rank.
Almost everyone on the server has a custom skin that's an expression of their personality. It would be nice to have some way to show off these skins without fearing death and the loss of precious items. I figure that when folks get to their end game armour wise, they're essentially immortal anyway. The problem is that you end up with a server full of identical players.
There's a few ways this could be implemented. I suppose the most obvious is to give the /god command to donators - perhaps an additional perk for the Royal tier. A better way, I think, is to have a monthly upkeep cost in in-game currency - say, $100,000 per month. It would be a good way to draw cash back to the server (as needs to happen), and encourage people to participate in the economy. It's a luxury item, but very desirable in my opinion.
A few negative aspects to take into account (I'm sure there are more I haven't thought of):
- The effect on players who are joining skyblock, TNTRun, Spleef etc. - I wonder if there is a way to force /god off for these (and reactivate it on exit)...
- The potential for PvP scamming - I'd hope that players would be vigilant to the possibility that they might be opposing a player with /god active. In any case, perhaps there is some way to indicate this visually through tags or name colours, etc.
Please do consider it - I don't imagine it would be a stretch to implement.
