Huge List of Creative Suggestion, Revamps, Changes

Detailed description:
Creative has one of the underrated parts of the server. It has been given any update or reset since the previous Minecraft update and it lacked quite features to even have good monetization for the server. As such, this is bad for the server. I have heard rumors about creative no longer will have updates or being a removed game mode in the future which I have to be honest, it will be bad for the small group of Creative Community and for the server itself to remove game modes. PikaNetwork had its memories bound with this game mode and helped track some players.

As an old player myself, I remember playing this game mode back in 2015s. This is where I used to hang out, chill with friends, or even just build with my friends. But now, it has become a dead oasis where hackers and creeps lurk around because no moderation and development were shown.

So I have something compiled for what I think will be good features for creativity. I want to kindly ask you to give your time for a while reading this as you can consider something here.

#1Cross Version Support (1.8 - 1.18.2)

• Most of the community play on a certain version and that's what killed creative in the first place, due to its primary target on only one version. What I propose about this is there should be a lobby or spawn for creative when they join that is available for 1.8 to 1.18.2+ as well as the build for the spawn should be eligible to have no errors. For the player's build instead of a plot where everyone is connected, there should be a separate place for it (more details on next suggestion).​

#2Plots No More, Introducing The Creative Islands

• The creative islands will allow players to set their island world to any version they want and can set pretty much any rules they want there with Plot Restrictions. This Creative Island could have endless possibilities. Along with this change, I think there should have somewhat of a cosmetic change for the island where they can have a preset design theme that they can purchase to support the game mode with packages.​

#3Improvements with WorldEdit (A Customized Version)

• Letting WorldEdit is accessible to ordinary players without limits is beyond the biggest flaw of issue that might cause creative to have lag machines and more that could potentially destroy the server. What I suggest is to have a customized worldedit where you could do the basics with limits cut, move, paste, copy.​

#4Introduction to Cookie Rating and Economy

• Ratings are a cool introduction for the server to have as such it will give a sense of specialty among other islands. You may claim the cookie ratings that you will give to the spawn by an NPC called "Baker". This cookie serves no other purpose but just to give ratings. Possibly make it have a leaderboard. In addition to this, there will be exclusive cookie ratings for YouTubers, Staff, and Developers as well that could give different rating points.​
There would be possible statistics for Weekly Rating and Overall Rating in an island. You can only rate once per day and to avoid botting or boosting, they are required to link their Discord Account on the server to claim a rating or rate.​
  • Normal Cookie Rating – +1
  • Unicorn Cookie Rating – +3
  • Mystic Cookie Rating – +5
  • Rainbow Cookie Rating – +10
  • YouTuber & Twitch Cookie Rating – +15
  • Staff Cookie Rating – +15
  • Developer Cookie Rating – +20
As for the economy, I believe it should still exist here for roleplay, circulation of buying cosmetics and tags, etc. But this economic currency should be virtual and in the form of trading only.​

#5Trade Limits & Unique ID System to prevent the duplication and Illegal items

• As you may know, in creative mode you are allowed to middle-click your mouse to duplicate a certain item (This could be possibly abused by distributing exclusive items on the server). My solution to this is not giving them access to do this in some way and for my idea I chose this unique id system like what we currently have on other game modes.​

As stated, this unique id system will detect similar items or illegal ones on a player's inventory and it will be instantly removed. For illegal items, this could be notified to staff members with a GUI with the player's inventory being taken as well when it was removed.

#6Introduction to Tags

• Tags have been introduced to the server in multiple game modes but here in creative, I believe that it should be different. Instead of the typical buying the selected tags, why not let players have fun with loot box chances. There will be a different rarity of tags in the loot box and you can buy a loot box in the store. This will allow the game mode to have multiple monetization instead of buying the tags. This is a cosmetic anyway so it's not a problem if you get a random tag, if you get the tag you've already earned it will give you a chance to reroll it.​

#7Other Minor Changes/Fixes

Settings in the player's 9th Hotbar
This is where they can access furniture, skulls, building tools, island settings, tags, etc.
Map Art Cosmetic
As one Perk stated I believe that is a good idea but it should only allow Imgur links or prnt.sc with a command /mapart. I believe that this will be a great addition to Creative's economy.
Trophy Items and Special Items in the game
This will serve no purpose other than cosmetic or could have a valuable price for the players to buy using the economic currency. Allow the minigame cosmetics to be used on the lobby of creative This will also give hugely beneficial to the cosmetics we have on the other game mode in the minigames area.
Plot Comment, Signatures of Players
The purpose of this command is to leave feedback on the player's build or just simply leave a friendly message on the island they want to display. This will mostly be useful for flexing purposes.​
Allow the minigame cosmetics to be used in the lobby of creative
This will also give a huge benefit to the cosmetics we have on the other game mode in the minigames area.​
Introduction to Furniture
This is to make your builds even more lively as it is before, types of furniture will help it even more realistic if you're trying to build a home or even more.​

#10Huge Revamp for the Creative's Rank and Store Perk

• Creative Ranks had its perks on the store that is deemed somewhat not worth buying nor not even fun for players to encourage buying. For me, here are some new and revised perks the game mode should have:​

Reason(s):
Creative has become a nostalgic place for old players to hang out or just stay and removing such game mode that has stuck on the server's name for a long time damages the player base. I still believe that some of the community wants changes to the game instead of leaving it unprioritized. I get that developers have more things to do than fix a game mode that is not monetizable on their gain and not fun for the players to be invested.

As such I have completely made the game mode somewhat monetizable but some suggestions may have issues for the other players. If you think that this game mode should be free, then it will have no progress whatsoever for the server to even have. The monetizable features stated in this thread serve as a support for the game mode, not an advantage so I hope you can agree to this change so the server will take the game mode quite seriously as a priority as well.

As stated by the lead developer, this may not be possible but I want to know what you guys think about this specific game mode on the network. You can even share your own suggestion here by replying or sharing your memories throughout the game mode. The thread will have updates and revisions if we have more ideas to compile.

+1 I would also like to suggest to be able to set gamemode for the visitors on your island :D
That's a basic part for the island command of course

-1

-1, make it 5/day

for the rest, +1




also, obviously ranked people will have more perms, right?
On the Trade Limit and Unique ID System I believe it's needed as such there will be illegal items lurking around the server, cheques will exist (unless if you want to trade currency virtually on GUI), the uniqueness of the item will serve an increment of price as such the currency will be somewhat useful.

For the Cookie Rating, they will be given a specific amount of cookies don't worry about that (Default is 5 Cookies per day but its value will depend on what rank you are, as stated on my list).

Lastly, yes all ranked players (donators) will have more perms to encourage monetization. The server cannot handle a dead gamemode for long without income from it. I believe that this is the least thing we could do to support the server, the gamemode itself, and hope it won't be forgotten/removed.

So I suppose you meant that for only illegal items and cheques, right? If so then I misunderstood. Disallowing the duplication of other ordinary items wouldn't be a wise decision.

Duplication of normal blocks/items won't be disallowed. We're only going to disable valuable items getting duped.
