    Hello! I've already spoken to Ergo on this suggestion; but I'm posting it for you all to see my idea! I think that many players fear the resets because they have valuable items that they worked hard for and some things are sentimental. For example, I won prom queen at the first CorbaCraft annual prom and I got an enchanted helmet that said Prom queen on it in colorful letters. Small things like that is stuff I want to keep through resets. Don't get me wrong, I know resets are for the best, but most people quit because they don't want to start over completely. So here is my idea: Each player gets one enderchest of whatever stuff they want throughout a reset, It cannot be all shulkerboxes but maybe one or two shulker boxes are okay to have. If you think about it, it really can't do any harm. Players work hard on what they get and I feel like more people would stay on through resets if they knew they'd have a box of their memories. A way that this can be achieved, is if we have a "safe zone" where people can turn in what they wish to keep during the reset. Kind of how spawn doesn't reset, a place set up like that. Maybe players have to pay a fine to be able to keep their chestfuls of items. Thank you for reading! And just so you know, When I spoke to Ergo, he said he loved the idea. Keep your fingers crossed! ;)

    Greetings,

    Personally, this isn't my favorite.

    This could ruin the reset and there is no point in a clean start if every player has Elytra and Shulker and OP gear (Prot 30 etc).

    One way around this is "Cosmetic Items Safe" maybe you could keep cosmetic items? Such as your hat or maybe books etc. This would be very hard to manage but might be possible. Personally, I can't see this being implemented because A as far as I know there is no reset soon and B this is very hard to control and might ruin the purpose of a reset/ could be exploited.

    *This might be possible by just a world/seed and AH reset is it was too happen. Only e-chests would be left (/ec).*

    Cheers :p

    I understand what you mean, But we have lost hundreds of players to resets because most people don't like having to completely start over without something from the last time. I think it wouldn't be that bad because after all its just an echest

    Greetings,

    TBH I have never been through a reset. But I know for a fact people won't be satisfied anyway. What about builds, city or shops.... A reset isn't planned or publically anyways. I think an e-chest would unbalance everything.

    Lets put it into perspective with diamonds. One player could fill his 27 e-chest slots with shulker boxes. There are 27 slots in a shulker box, 27X27=729, that means 729 diamond blocks stacks could be taken... that's 729X9X64=419904 single diamonds. I know one player won't have that many diamonds. I know this isn't really realistic with one player but it would happen with 100+ Phila players. Same could be said with gold and iron. 46656 Keys could be taken. Don't let me get started with people with multiple accounts.

    Why mine if basically all diamonds from a world and a mine world and keys are available? All it takes is one player to completely make some items extremely less valued.

    The only way I see this being possible is with giving a staff member cosmetic items to KeepSafe. But even then the world has reset. Would the items be renamed/made?

    Cheers :p

    Here is what I'm thinking.
    This could be used to carry over items that are cosmetic and or valuable, and the player would be devastated if it was lost, I.g. A helmet from winning prom queen, or a certain irreplaceable item, that you can't just forget. Or possibly a few valuables to jumpstart your economic career. Doesn't matter.

    I overall like the idea, but entire loads of items could be transferred via shulker box as Cathal stated. if we did not allow shulk boxes to be transferred, that would be an absolute pain to control. If you came up with a way to restrict the transfer of bulk items, please reply

    I'm not sure this is even POSSIBLE. Most of our resets are little to no warning (except for Aurelia which was a planned reset). There is no way to just up and move these items without a schematic and a bunch of data.

    Beyond this, if it was a PLANNED reset, this will defeat the purpose of said reset. Like how we reset Aurelia to give it a more survival feel, having this would just blow up who is op or not.

    Also, how do we determine what is cosmetic and what's not cosmetic? The only cosmetic items are, really, from events that you can get weekly.


    Overall, if you can find a plugin that can do this, please share it. Otherwise, it's too much hassle and just not possible.

    I agree with everything that has been said.

    I have a lot of rare one of a kind items I'd love to keep safe. Treasures even.

    But how can we avoid players just filling up their enderchest with a shulker box full of random supplies? From a staffing standpoint this seems difficult to regulate.

    So I love the idea but unless you can come up with an easy way for staff to regulate this then I'm going to have to deny this suggestion

    I like this idea as what liv said about prom queen... I still have my prom king stuff and Ik it isn't a big deal it still ment that we won it and that it was the 1st one ❤️ Gl

    And... Doesn't the super flat world not get reset... Maybe a player can give a shulker box to them... Ending the way of multiple resource

    Heyy

    I honestly love this suggestion. I had these really valuable items once and if it wasn't for a friendly admin hours of work would have been lost there. (it were some story's in books).

    Staff wise this is indeed really hard to realise through the enderchest suggestion.

    BUT what if we would set up a "safe" foundation or something. This would indeed require extra work for staff but if you just assign it to like the staff that is willing to it could work.

    Players can go to these staff to ask for an item to be stored. These item would be kept in the "safe". We could setup a "price" per item as well if necessary.

    Since these items go through those specific staff members it can be easily restricted to cosmetics only.

    Let's see what we can do with that? :)

    ~Enjoy

    @Josh Fitzpatrick These are strictly for catalog and event builds.

    @Liv If you wish to have this, please take what everyone has said and come up with a draft of a proposal that I can put forth to the staff team. You have a week from today.

    I like the idea, but I think this could ruin the whole point of a fresh start, as many have said. Generally it would be hard to monitor what people bring in after the reset, I feel maybe a rewards hall would be easier to do, but this would still be hard to do without making the new server... not new?

    This will sound good or stupid lol but why not have a Hall Of Fame at the new spawn? Like an armor stand in whatever gear with the players /skull? The item they won could be on the wall? Eh might not work if there are too many prizes but could be a cool concept. Maybe have one for Most Events Attended, Prom King/Queen, Highest /bal and most donated?

    Eh thought I would throw this out there

    :p Cheers :p

    That's kind of what I mean, statistics for the last server, but only large prizes, I only meant like to have around 10 people in it who had won/done something in the last server that may have been hard to do.

    Player .date files can be saved but that would be everything including location etc. I'm not sure how you would tease out specific strings such as e-chest contents.

    I agree, but it doesn't have to be an echest, we could have a safe room with regular chests with player names on it and have what they chose to place in there.

    @Liv

    Again, if you wish to continue with this suggestion, submit a good proposal plan in a reply and I will put it forth to staff team.

    @Liv While that sounds nice, I can think of the trouble in how much work this will be for staff. But as Alice said, submit a good proposal for it, I'm curious to see how you will work the issue of too much work for staff out:D

    Keep in mind that the work for staff is not only before or after the reset, it is both ;-)

    @Josh Fitzpatrick I am not so sure about it. With a reset where the economy is going to be reset (mentioning this since with last Lotharian reset it was NOT the case, but with last Aurelian reset it was), people do not care about their balance anymore. They'd gladly pay a large amount of money to save some very valuable stuff. And if it is like the Aurelian reset, where crate items were gone as well, we would have to check that they don't have OP stuff saved as well
