Hi gang,Players have asked me a lot about the changed hopper behavior and I've also come across a lot of sad stories where the change wasn't really for the better for those players. Now, I can really understand the dilemma we're having here. Lets face it guys: some players will try to (ab)use some things. And to find a middle ground where you can protect the server from (major) lag and keep people happy... Its easier than it sounds.So I was wondering....Suggestion: Allow players to get their redstone build on their town residence certified. So basically: a staff member (who has know about redstone and what things which cause lag) will visit the residence and inspect the build to see if this would cause too much lag. If it doesn't then the player can pay, say, 10,000 tokens and the residence will get an approval flag which will allow the hoppers on the residence to get their default behavior back where timing is concerned.Now, this is the tricky part: an insurance that players won't abuse this. I'm thinking in the likes of a monitor which checks what kind of blocks are placed. And the very moment any hoppers get placed then or removed the approval flag should be automatically voided and the residence will then fall back to EMC standard timing.I think that monitor approach should be doable in the longer run, because there have already been announcements about trying to add a more fine grained control over the permission flags. So; getting the build flag to only allow placement of a single block.There are more caveats to deal with I think. Like people who have tokens to spare, and we don't want to put too much strain on staff. So as an added fail safe I think we might also want to limit the amount of times where a player can apply for certification. I dunno, once per month or once per 2 weeks or so. That would ensure that players don't 'abuse' this or that staff gets overrun with requests.It's not a perfect solution but I think it would give players who use smaller redstone builds which don't contribute to major lag problems a bit of an extra edge. And that might balance things out a little.
