    • I am new to this server, but I have played a lot on othe servers. I am always markaus77 on everything. I also play on the swancraft server right now. So far, I really like this server, especially the way trees fall.  Thanks, Mark   
    • My warp request is for a  PLACE  The X and Z co-ordinates for the place where I'd like the warp landing spot are  -7476.363 -34363.199  My build is FINISHED  I have read and understood the guideline & requirements thread: YES * It is 100% claimed by me, with subclaims for appropriate areas. I have spent time and effort making it look nice, and I have placed signs to guide and inform visitors.  * I promise to not pester staff in-game or here on the forums about this application. Instead I will be patient and wait for replies, and answer any questions asked. If any changes to my build are requested, I will work with staff to make them happen. * If my application is rejected, I won't complain or whine. Instead I will go back to working on my build and improve it so that it can be approved in the future, when it meets the requirements. * If my application is approved, I won't rest on my laurels but will continue to uphold the standard of my build and maintain the location. If it is a town, I will assist with any concerns the citizens raise and evict inactive or banned players. I may expand as need be, and I will design my spot in the warp hub to match my build.   "With this application I confirm that my build is SAFE and no mobs can spawn there" - My build is a scary build, mobs are common but in the spawning area it is safe, no mobs can spawn or get in. There are good warning signs in the spawning area as well.  The builds include two walking dead sets and are well designed and fully claimed. The lights in the prison flicker to further the creepy aspect. Images: The prison: Hershel's Farm:
    • Personally, I see a problem with building on the roof of the Nether. The first issue is that the claims cannot protect only the roof unless Turbo or Zore can work magic. The second issue is that building a farm, regardless of its location, it uses the same amount of resources to load each pigman and to run whatever kills them or teleports them. I can see the plus side to this, but seeing that its more or less to show off, why not just make an event server set as a Nether biome and have it flat bedrock with plots?
    • While I agree that using the Nether Roof should be allowed, I also think if this recommendation is not taken, and is denied,  might we come to a mutual agreement? Here are some of my ideas.  Such as:

      • Traveling along the Nether-Roof for the pure reason to travel long distances, would be strictly prohibited, and a more severe consequence could be implemented if  caught doing so. ( This could be prevented with a WorldGuard region of a pre determined size above the roof (Expanding the region only as you see absolutely necessary) , and as soon as a player hits the regions boarder, they are teleported back to the Nethers spawn. 
      • Here is an idea I quite like. Make the Nether roof, only accessible for player of a certain level. Either that be the same for the Vanilla Server, or the second Creative World. Maybe even have a server poll about which level seems the most appropriate! 
      • Have the Nether roof only accessible via Supporters or Supporters+. Or, a mix both to ensure the rules will not be broken. ( With this staff would not need to supervise as closely, as the players that have access would be well known, and trusted.) Maybe have a server poll to help decide! 
      • Per staff permission (Given permission via a Staff Member), and supervision, allow player(s) to build on top of the nether roof, strictly for the use of Gold Farms. I feel that this would be a  huge benefit to the server, not only would it be freeing up valuable Buildworld land, it would take stress off the server as whole, and make the players experience on the server,  a bit more lag free. Which, I think we can all agree upon, the less lag the better.  Some limitation(s) could also be set in place, too. Such as:
      • Permit a pre-determined amount of nether portals, and size, capped at whichever percent is deemed acceptable. 
      • Space restrictions: Players are only allowed to build within a pre-determined radius, running along either the X & Z axis, or the X, Y and Z axis. 
      • A plot system setup nearly identical with Shops and Malls. (Some tweaking would have to be done to ensure plot permissions do not leak through to the main Nether level. 
      • Last, but certainly not least! The area for gold farms would be using pre-generated chunks from previous players exploring the surrounding nether area. This way, we would not be loading anymore chunks than we really need to, hence saving on storage place. (Hey, penny pinching where it counts pays off in the long run! 😉 ) Including saving on storage space, we would also putting less of a load on the servers CPU while the server generates new chunks. I'm not saying every player that wants to build a farm is going to find un-explored chunks to build it in, but if offered the possibly to build on completely flat, with minor restrictions, I would easily take the Nether instead of scouting a good area, clearing it, fighting off mobs, etc. 


      TL;DR,
      The possibilitys the Nether Roof yields for players to build upon is absolutely endless, and I could see this being yet another attractive feature of the server to bring more players in. Being allowed to build on the nether roof could completely revolutionize the way our players on Diversity show off their farm-building skills, and put their creativity to the test. A lot of players, like myself, enjoy building massive and crazy efficient farms, so whats a better place than the roof of the Nether?   If allowed to build on the Nether Roof,  I think it could change the history of Diversity as we know it, for the even even better. 


      Thank you for taking the time for reading this post, I greatly hope my recommendation is taken into account and discussed among all members of Staff. 

      Yours truly,
      Mike.
