Towny VS Factions!

Post by _Eternal on Tue Dec 03, 2013 7:53 pm

The server is coming closer to a release but now I need your opinion!

So one of those two plugins will be added and will result in completely different gameplay.
Which one? That is not for me to decide, but for YOU. I really want this server to be controlled by the community and not just the owner. So please leave a post below with your opinion(s)!

If we select Towny:

Towny is about making towns together with other players or alone. The goal is to make a large town and try to populate it. It works similar to factions and only members of each town can build in their own town. There will always be fun events, such as Towny warmode, but towns are not forced to enter these.
Click below for alot of information about towny. I personally think this could be alot of fun.
Please click below to read more about Towny.
About Towny:
Towny is a plugin for a Bukkit modded Minecraft server. The plugin itself is a manager for a Resident-Town-Nation hierarchy, as well as a block permission manager for a grid-like protection system. Each town has a mayor, while a nation has a king. They both have their own assistants to help run their respective people. Players can also purchase land from the town, as well as an optional daily tax set by the mayor. The player can allow his friends from out of town to build on his land when even his very own town's people can't build if he so wishes.

The bases of protection follows under how the world is separated into chunks. For those unaware, minecraft servers are broken up into 16x16x128 sections of blocks. The 128 being the height from the adimantium floor to the clouds in the sky. The protection ignores the height an focuses on the x and z planes. The default size for grid squares is 16x16, similar to the chunk size (configurable when you start using towny). So claiming a townblock (a grid square) allows that section of land to follow your town's or the plot owner's permissions.

Each town can claim up to a certain amount of townblocks, a set ratio or amount configured in the setting that is relative to the amount of players taking residence in that town. Residents themselves have no limit on how many they claim, however the daily tax (when using alongside iConomy) will take a bite out of their resources. The money is tunneled to the town's bank account that only the mayor can withdraw from, except if the town belongs to a nation. Any town belonging to a nation may be required to pay the nation a daily upkeep as well.

The gods of the land (admins) have the ability to start and end wartime mode. During war, most commands are frozen in order to focus on the event. Whilst at war, block permissions are ignored and any town that is in a nation is completely unprotected to the other nations residents. Also, each cell, or townblock, is given a certain amount of health. When a non-allied player enters the townblock, the townblock's health decreases. The town's residents have to force the player's out while still attacking others. When the health reaches zero, the town loses claim over that townblock. The focus is to defeat the each town's home block where the town's people spawn from.


If we select Factions:

If we select Factions the plugin LWC which is used for locking chests, doors, furnaces and so on will be removed. The server will allow raiding however not griefing. If griefing ~4 blocks is required to get inside someone elses home if they do not have a door, then that will be allowed. Factions is alot about PvP and fighting other factions and stealing their land. You can read more about factions here:
About Factions:
This plugin allows you to create your own faction. The more followers a faction has the more land the faction can claim. The risk for griefing is low in claimed land since only the faction followers can build there. Factions can forge alliances and declare themselves enemies with others. Land may be taken from other factions through war.

One of these plugins are citical for the servers survival and should fit very well with the new apocalyptic theme.

Server is currently Factions PvP. LWC is likely to be removed later.

I'll give Towny a shot in the near future.
