Please do not suggest server side plugins

  1. Occasionally, we receive requests for plugins to be installed or client side mods that require server side plugins.

    I would just like to state we are not looking to add any more plugins to our server from external people.

    EMC only runs about 3 plugins coded by others that we do not maintain ourselves... and we would like to keep it to that as much as possible.

    Adding on more plugins can hurt our update speed, and exposes us to potential for issues outside of our control.

    We would rather program the features we desire ourselves so we know exactly how our server runs and know the code is of quality level and is not doing silly things.

    Most 3rd party plugins are written very badly, do hacky things that hurt performance, and open up the server to bugs and glitches...

    This is not something we are looking to do.

    The only case we will have for installing a new plugin is if it can save us a tremendous amount of time developing something, and that would be a pretty much developer kind of decision.

    So please, list a specific feature you want, and if you know a plugin that implements the idea well, then link it and we can look at it potentially for ideas, but we will very unlikely actually install the plugin, so please, request specific features, not plugins :)

  4. ehrmahgerd, anyone would say that this was an emotive pre-battle speech, why are we applauding exactly?
  5. You pulled the Beluschi card...
  6. I think I have one...

    Use the feature of the mumble plugin with voice location ... it won't be enabled in /chat t for obvious reasons it would be waay crowded with a lot of people.

    However, maybe the range of local chat (your neighbors distance) all the way to residence chat distance. Also you could toggle it so you do or don't hear the people and also use it with private 1v1 convo's with people or if group chat is later added have private group conversations. (just like with phone calls or using actual mumble).

    That's my suggestion.

  8. I do agree with coding everything yourself, it makes sense as then it makes it easier to fix an issue when it arises. Also keeps you in the know and in control of what is going on ;)
  9. I'm not sure if he's making fun of my name or the fact I used to not be able to afford anything but Ramen, I stated this somewhere in another thread...
  10. ... ign
  11. Either way it's still rude... Definitely NOT called for!

  12. I don't know if its a pluggin, but EMC should have a loan system.
  13. This should have been a separate post, but It's been suggested before and turned down due to the fact people could get loans and then not pay it back etc.
  14. Umm... I want to have a loan system but it should be on the forums and moderators should be in the convos...
    Just saying...
