    That's a very good point, so I think mobs should be allowed by default, and then, only staff can spawn additional ones in. Can this work, @Jamie?
  2. @k3v_o Nice to see you back Reminds me of the ads on youtube I see, here in Japan! Sometimes they'll be so random I'll watch the whole thing and send the link to friends in other areas of the world. I'll post ones I like on this post!

    I think animals being put by default or not is kind of arbitrary, it might be nice to have them hanging around on unused plots. However, I think people should be able to spawn in mobs if they want, including villagers and stuff, so that they can populate their builds. For example, if someone makes a castle of some sort, they might want to put skeletons on the roof, and maybe give them armour or something. I know you can spawn in mobs using the /summon command with details that make them never despawn and with armour, I don't know if there's a more "restricted" plugin version of that. Nevertheless, I think it could be a fun thing to add, maybe staff could have permissions to use it so that citizens could ask them to spawn in for them.
  4. HAH That fits into this category alright XD
  5. I'd love to make some gaming videos with JR folks soon! Would anyone be up? (in 5 weeks)

    1. Flaw


      You mean Minecraft videos? :P

    2. Mecmax


      Most likely, but I'd be up for other games! (Gmod, rust, etc)

  6. Hey guys, I've been listening hardcore to this album of western-cowboy-movie music that I absolutely love. I generally really enjoy listening to movie music, but I don't do it too often. I can't find the exact album I'm listening to, but some of the songs are on youtube, here's my favourite: (eerie, but I love it!!) Is there anything weird, or out-of-the-ordinary you guys like?
  7. Hey I just looked at one of your videos, and airsoft looks great! It'd be amazing if everyone playing had cameras so we could see the whole battle I was already thinking of joining the Airsoft society at University of York once I go there, I think I know that I'll join for sure now!

    I honestly think people should only get one plot, at most 3. They're immense! I can't imagine building things that would take up the whole of the plot. In order to avoid empty and barely used plots, I think people should have less. (50 plots???) Just my opinion I love the integration of landscape and plot though, it looks beautiful!

    hmm, maybe half price? Aka ~15000$ Don't worry, I'll share some of the shops I make with you, so we can both get rich
  11. Mecmax


    yeah, that's why I'm selling them for a lot
  12. I mostly study at the moment But I love mathematics and a little programming (I intend to learn much more in uni!), and other thought-provoking stuff like physics. I make art and play a ton of music, and once I graduate I intend to game too
  13. It's for the survival world On classic, I'm still rooming with you guys

    You see, I used to be an adventurer like you...
  15. Hey guys! I've been playing a little on survival lately, mostly focusing on building my fancy house (Czech it out at /warp FranchHouse). I've decided to make it look really nice and visitable, with the possibility of adding extra rooms to host close friends. The next thing I'll build (in 5 weeks! I'm gonna be off of JRcraft as much as I can until then for the sake of my grades in my upcoming finals) is going to be my starter shop. Over there, I'll primarily sell food, coal, iron, wood, and seeds and saplings of all sorts. This shop will be made for people who just joined the server, I'll do my best to adapt the prices for them (everyone starts with 150 dollars!). Possibly after that, I'll expand into a second shop that will sell music discs, potions, and some other more "luxurious" stuff. I'll also be buying materials, especially building materials because I'm not a huge fan of mining. I'll design the shopwarp so that people can put up ads about shops people can sell stuff at, or sales that are happening (for example: "Franchshop buying andesite for 200$ per stack!"). I think once I build my shop and people start using it, others will be more inspired to build shops of their own, and the best ones will be selected to be featured at /warp shopwarp. We'll have to come up with some application system, I don't think it should be too difficult. I can also envision some type of admin-managed mall (fresco-like) where people can buy stuff at, but at a higher price than "market value". The reason for this is that what the owners of the shop (it doesn't actually have to be an admin, it can be a citizen) do is go to other more local shops, buy their stuff and use it to fill stocks of the mall. By having higher prices, the owners make a profit and people are encouraged to go to smaller shops. However, I think people will be quite interested in buying everything together, so we'd have to both minimise the discomfort of /warp shopwarp and find better advantages to local shops. I think by raising prices high enough, everyone will be happy. On a more personal level, I've gone to the end, killed the ender dragon to then retrieve a ton of xp and a dragon egg. To be clear, it's the only dragon egg in the Survival server (there's only one per world). I decided to sell it for 1 Million dollars, which will, in my mind, end up happening eventually. Some rich person will eventually buy it, and if not, I'll keep it as a nice trophy for myself. I also continued to explore the vasts of the end, which are new to 1.9, to find impressive islands full of weird plants that give a ton of fruit (which is a nice, EXTREMELY cheap source of food), which I'll definitely sell at the starter shop for something like 1$ for 16 fruits. I also found some interesting ender cities, which I made sure to loot, and retrieved very interesting items, including "end rods" (very fancy lamps that I'll also be selling, maybe 50$ a piece); some strange blocks that I don't think I'll bother selling; and more importantly, dragon heads (which I might sell at something like 10 000$ per head) and elytras (once again, around 10 000$). These last two are a lot more rare and very lavish, the elytra gives you the ability the fly (glide with style), so I am selling them for much more. There's only 1 per 3-4 cities, and cities are difficult to find. This led me to the goal of becoming the richest person on JR. It's pretty arbitrary and might seem a little ridiculous, but I hope to make it in order to prove that my business strategies have been successful, and if the JR economy is booming as I intend for it to, it will give me many opportunities to build all kinds of projects. In other words, I want to be the Donald Trump of JRCraft PS: I discovered through an accident the mind-blowing fact that if you put 4 spruce saplings in a square, then they'll grow a massive and pretty pine tree. I now have my exterior decoration problem settled.

    A little demo of the new 1.9 Elytra. It's real fun, this is a screenshot I managed to take as I was flying down towards my house (after having manually flown up...). Elytras aren't too useful at the moment on this server due to the allowed flight, but I think it's possible that flight will be removed here; if that happens, the price is gonna go way up! (by a factor of 2 or 3 at most) Come see my house at /warp FranchHouse ^^

    FranchHouse inside

    From the album: JR Craft Images!

    As you can see, I have gone for a cozy look to my house. The fireplace at the back and the pretty rug on the floor make for a comfortable room to welcome my guests in. The (slightly distorted) (but still huge) dragon heads, along with some fancy armour are on display, I intend to double check the protection to make sure people can't just take the stuff that's on the stands

    The FranchHouse!

    From the album: JR Craft Images!

    This is the fancy entrance to my house. The garden hasn't been worked on yet, but who cares! There's a welcome message!
  19. Sorry for not getting back at you earlier, what do you mean by RPG? I don't quite get your idea.

    Builds and Projects

    Stuff I build, or things I find and like! JRCraft stuff, obviously.

    Dinner with Jamie!

    From the album: Dinner with Friends

    Today, we enjoyed some savoury apples together. It's fun to catch up after long times of no see! @Jamie
  24. Wow, that was a lot of content to go through I don't have too much to comment on, I mostly see your points and agree with a lot of what you say. I do think there unfortunately are extremists who end up as racists towards white people and american southerners, resorting to stereotypes (like the s*** the lady was saying to the trump supporters.. That was really painful to watch). It reminded me of a podcast (StarTalk with Neil DeGrasse Tyson), where he interviews these engineers from South/Mainland USA, who have really strong southern accents and who people would generally stereotype as being not very smart. Once again, I think comes down to communication between groups: The Black Lives Matter think protest is the answer, which backfires quite strongly with people who aren't as accepting. It's honestly a pretty unconvincing way of fighting for their beliefs, so it's no wonder you have people that don't understand their message. However, I would like to point out that Sanders does not want to make the whole state socialist. The way I see it, (as someone from the center), some areas of a country need lots of government regulation (like education, which ideally is cheap or free), but others not at all (like when starting a business; this is a big problem in France and non-existent in the US. Hence why their country is very popular to start companies in). I don't think it's fair for you to say Sanders wants a "socialist utopia". Maybe that's what some of his supporters want, but they would be extremists, just like the extremists on Trump's side. Sanders is a politician that will be enforcing things like green energy and better taxing systems on the rich, not a communist leader that wants everyone to be paid and not work (in a socialist country, you would work just as much as in a capitalist country, there simply less risk involved if you can't find a job, and it's tougher to be a billionaire because of higher taxes on the rich). @System
