  1. With the imminent 1.6 update, new mobs like horses and donkeys will be added. Many EMC players will want to have a horse or a mule either just for show or for traveling. I, personally would like a majestic black stallion, but in the wild I have nowhere to keep it. So I think that near the wild spawn there should be a building that serves as a "stable". You could buy a stall, or 2 (If you are a supporter you could have more than 1) where you keep your horse/mule/donkey and all its items like armor, food, saddles, etc. Then you will have a place to keep your horse for long journeys across the wild or for even a small party with your friends.
  2. Horse Race Gambling :p
  3. It will probably end up like wolves, you just leave them near spawn,but they could be killed. Or if we get perms, we could tie them up to the fences where the portals are.
  4. I kinda like this idea actually, it would be a lot easier to store horses there than building your own stable just outside the protected spawn which may get griefed.

  5. Perms would be a good idea too, but that might only work for residencies. The whole point of the horse stable is so only YOU can enter the stall and see your horse, so it doesn't end up like wolves. Then they won't die :)

  7. What a lovely sight. The Spawn areas spammed with abandoned animals which cannot be removed.

    I have an idea. Pay 100 rupees to egg Mr. Ed. :D

  8. *Ahem* First of all, they aren't abandoned. They will always be inside their stall unless you take them out. Since griefers might abandon horses on purpose, horses in the spawn with nowhere to go might be taken to a building where you can adopt the abandoned horses. Hey, even Minecraft mobs have feelings.
  9. Awesome idea! But I'm curious how Aikar will make mules private...
  10. I guess a flag where only you can open that certain fence gate/door. I'm not sure if they would be private or not, just a place where you can keep your horses without them running away.
  11. Yes. I agree with that completely. Maybe something like /claim stable12. I meant what's to stop people stealing from your mules in the wild?

  12. You can always build a horse stable at your residence...
  13. I'm talking about in the wild. You can't take mobs through the portals, so you need to keep the horse somewhere safe. If you build your own stable in the wild it might get griefed and your horse stolen. The best thing to do is to have a stable in the spawn zone where it is protected.
  14. Alright, now i see. This COULD be a good idea
  15. If egging is enabled for horses I don't see why this would be necessary, sorry. :)
  16. .... I overlooked that.......:oops:
  17. Well, there are different perks for each horse. Some have more health, some are faster. And it takes time to re-tame them and different people may want different colors.

  18. Like me. I want a majestic black stallion with armor on it, name it Shadow and have it be my trusty steed to kill monsters. :p
  19. I voted bad idea but now that I think about it, it is a good idea. Maybe they could have an underground horse stable to keep horses, people say to just egg them but how do we egg them while keeping the saddle and/or armor? I say we should add it at a cost of maybe 100r per day.
  20. I definitely think there needs to be a solution, but maybe the easiest way to solve the problem would be to allow horses to pass through the wild teleporters? Then you could keep it in town and ride it through the portal into the wild.
