Hey Minetimers! I am writing this thread because we, the staff team, would like your feedback on several changes that we could implement on anarchy. Here is a list of some of these changes we want your input on: Border Expansion We know that there have been significant calls from the community to implement a substantial border expansion; the most popular request has been extended to at least 100K in diameter. Why can't we have an unlimited world? A: Unfortunately, chunk generation contributes to significant server lag. By pre-setting the border to 50K in diameter, we could pre-load all the chunks in the world, preventing that lag from happening. So, if we want to have an extended border, we will need the community's ideas for the next expansion. We would like to know which you think is better: Gradual increase: Where we will expand the border by X blocks every X week. One-time increases: Where we expand the border by X blocks every few months/major update. Keep in mind, to pre-load these chunks; we would have to take the server offline for maintenance for an unspecified amount of time. BoatFly One of the easiest ways to travel/raid on anarchy currently is through "boat flying." Simply, the player enables a hack and can travel at y=infinity at a very fast speed. This essentially makes travelling the current world extremely fast when you factor in the nether highway. We have heard community members say that they want this hack blocked to make raiding somewhat more challenging. What do you think? Chat Filter Many requests by anarchy players have more discretion with chat offences and to have the chat filter relaxed. While I am happy to make certain changes to the filter to allow certain words or phrases to bypass, removing the filter entirely is not an option. Currently, the staff are maintaining a policy of only punishing players who direct chat offences towards others. E.g xBMAN joined the game and dies. In chat he yells "F****!!!!." He will not be punished or muted because he's not flaming another user. Clarifying our Lag Machine Policy Lag machines, in any circumstances, are strictly prohibited. Other popular anarchy servers prohibit the proliferation of lag machines too, because it causes a detrimental effect on other players' experience. Therefore, the current policy for lag machines is that staff will destroy the machine once identified, and the staff will warn the player. Flagrant disregard of this policy could result in a permanent ban from anarchy. We want everyone to have a good time - please help us make the community more welcoming. The Protected Zone at Spawn Please let us know your thoughts on the protected zone at spawn. We hope that by receiving your input, we can implement some changes that will vastly improve your in-game experience on anarchy. - Noobcrew & the Staff Team.
