Survival Suggestions for the next reset [Part - 1]
• Pre-release test
If we go two seasons back, Gunfire conducted a pre-release test for Survival before the game mode was released publicly for the reset. The test came out to be successful and many bugs were found which were fixed. This test was announced on the Survival Discord! I think you should hold another pre-release test for the upcoming season as it would provide a better experience to everyone who will play in the upcoming reset. The link for the Survival discord can be found within my signature.
• Use Hex Code for Donator Ranks
Just like any other 1.16+ game mode, I think survival should also use hex codes in the rank names.
• Hex Code
Similar to being able to use colour codes in chat, we should also have the ability to use hex code in chat. Wizard+
• Player Tags
Player tags should be added to Survival. Some of the examples for player tags that should be added in Survival are: 'Survivor', 'Farmer', 'Builder', 'Godlike', etc.
• Kits in form of a voucher
When claiming kits from /kit. The kit should be provided in the form of a voucher rather than just filling our entire inventory. This is a far more efficient way than having to clean your entire inventory before claiming a kit, it also makes it easy to sell/trade kits with other players.
• Virtual key trading
The ability to trade your keys with other players with the help of a GUI

We know pets were added in the previous season. But there was no way you could obtain the pets, I think this should be fixed and pets should be able to be purchased from the zookeeper in exchange for gold coins or something else.
• Gold coin trading
We should be able to withdraw our gold coins in form of a voucher and be able to trade them with other players. Like right now, I have 500 gold coins and I don't have any use for them and I want to give them to my friend. I simply can't give them so there should be a way to trade gold coins.
Add a money booster to the game so that when we are selling items to the black market we get more money from our sale. Also add the money and experience boosters to the god crate and the seasonal crate, etc.
• Re-add [item], add [inventory]
The [item] function is currently disabled. It is useful to display our items in chat. It is already working in your other survival server, so why not on PikaNetwork as well. Along with [item] I think adding [inventory] would also be good.
• Skills [NEW]
A skill system similar to OpSkyblock's skills system for Survival. - @tozztozzo
• More kits cooldown
Kits should have a 2 days cooldown instead of a 1-day cooldown. Getting OP items every 24h, especially for NOBLE rank holders is too much. Compared to OpSkyblock the kits have a 2 days cooldown because they are too OP. So the cooldown should be 48h instead of 24h.
The advertisement gems in the Unique Crate should be removed. The advertisement gems aren't even very useful, we end up just throwing them at spawn right as we get them. They are fine in the vote and epic crate, the crates should be buffed a bit as well. The chances of getting a rank are VERY low.
• Removal or Separation of PvP
PvP is a major issue in Survival. Basically, everyone who used to play Survival for fun has now completely left PikaNetwork and it is all because of PvP overtime the game mode got extremely toxic all over PvP because everyone was fighting over gear. All the people who used to enjoy Survival as a fun place don't like to play anymore because the chat is all toxic. Or another alternative is that you separate the PvP area so at least a bit of toxicity can be prevented.
• Shop Advertisement Gem Case
More information for this suggestion can be found here: https://pika-network.net/threads/shop-advertisement-gem-case.215759/
• Level requirement for Resource world
There should be a level requirement for entering the resource world. Because many people enter the resource world and start building and storing stuff there but the world gets reset after every week and they lose their progress. You should also change the icon of the resource world from a diamond pickaxe to something else.
• Disable safari nets within container trust
Safari nets should be disabled within container trust as people can pick up your mobs and take them away. For example, if you make a public trading hall and then allow everyone to have container trust to be able to trade, they can use container trust to pick up your villagers and take them away.
• Shulker Box Preview Datapack
This will allow us to see what is within a ShulkerBox when it is being sold at the auction house. For example, sometimes people rename items and put them on ah and people get scammed.
• Spawn Rates
The spawn rates for mobs get lower and lower as time goes on. 1 month into the game mode you won't start to see any mobs starting to spawn anywhere nearby you'd have to travel far only to find a few of them. The spawn rates need to be fixed.
• Better Villagers
Same as mob spawn rates decreasing. Villagers also get slow with time passage, they get slower and slower and then become irresponsive to iron farms basically they stop working and are completely frozen which results in hours of hard work going down for no reason.
• More black market items
We'd like to see more items being there in the black market which could be pretty useful, here are some of the examples: Iron Block (47.79$), Diamond Block (281.25$), Bone Block (10$), and many more blocks and items which can be fitted into the black market
• More items in /shop
There should be a category for enchanted books, potions, and everything that is missing in the shop
• Addition of /gift
The command /gift should be added to Survival to make it easy to trade items between players.
• Enhanced TAB
The fourth row of the TAB should display your information, such as money, gold coins, clan, clan founded on, and rest.
• Giving GKIT in a form of a voucher
Upon claiming gkits, similar to other game modes, you should get them in a form of a voucher. This makes it easy to trade your gkit to another player.
• Disallow claiming once-kit within worlds
Claiming gkits and once kits should be disabled within worlds and only enabled at spawn, the reason for this is many players claim them at a world and then go to spawn, it's locked and they don't get the keys as well.
• Noble Perks
The NOBLE rank has been heavily nerfed from time to time, consider adding more perks to. Here's a list:
» Add /flyspeed and /walkspeed back.
» Add /stonecutter
» Add /grindstone
» Add /anvil
» Add /heal since /god was removed.
• Removing command aliases
Remove the command aliases such as saying "ah" will teleport you to spawn and I find that quite annoying as people usually saw the word "ah" and it teleports you to the auction house NPC, shop and others can stay as they are not commonly said words.
• Mob Stacking for mobs spawned from spawners
Mobs that are spawned from a spawner should eventually start up stacking, this makes it easier to do the player levels as it takes quite a long while to gather mobs from spawners, maximum mob limit for the stack should be up to 25 only.
I ran out of character limit! The continuation of this suggestion can be found here:
Username: HarrisKING Suggestion: Survival Suggestions for the next reset [Part - 2] Detailed description: This is a continuation of the other suggestion as I had run out of character limit. Here's a link to the first part...
I believe that it's time for Survival to receive a massive change, it has been a game mode that used to be good and has been let down for the past few seasons, it should be enhanced more and made enjoyable once again like it used to be, every suggestion stated above I think fits into Survival and I believe will make a wonderful change which would motivate the users to play the game mode more
Please provide your opinions below as well as any suggestions you have.
