    Crack down on staff (keep a close eye on them) and if someone deserves a demotion/promotion, do not hesitate. During my time as a moderator on Sky Metro, a lot of staff were inactive and should have been demoted sooner.

    In terms of YouTubers, I highly recommend trying to get dedicated, and passionate YouTubers, rather then people only interested in money. If you do end up needing help YT wise, you know my discord and I would be more then willing to help out :)

    Yes, the skymetro staff team is inactief. When SkyMetro accept applications can the helpers and mods make SkyMetro great

    From what I have seen with my time on here is that staff hardly ever got demoted even if they needed to be. Either a staff member is inactive or abuses power 9/10 times they will not be demoted which is unfortunate.

    All the server needs to have players on is to have a YouTuber. The only problem is the YouTubers content will get stale unless there are regular updates, events, or something to keep the people and more important the YouTuber interested.

    With previous YouTubers their content got boring and they kept doing the same old thing over and over so their viewers got board and stopped watching so they stoped recording. If there were updates or something to give new fresh content that wouldn’t be a problem and there would still be people playing. You can tell it’s a problem because the only “updates” that happen are new seasons.

    We are planning on releasing season 4 early July.

    We are going to merge down to 1 realm, and all ranks will be transferred to that realm.

    I believe bans will be reset (not 100% sure)

    I'm completely down for the unban because I got banned for the stupidest reason and I was the best player on the server, and most known! Along with @DrDraven because he's my baby daddy. But yeah #UnbanGarnet

    Some of these may have already been suggested.​


    Remove



    - Remove the current nether. Make a nether that is shared with everyone on the city where they can build and destroy. They would have to create a nether portal on their island to go there (not a warp) and they will be spawned in at a neutral point in the nether. It will be a normal nether (not custom as for landscape) set a border around 3000-4000. In this nether people can build, destroy, PvP, raid, and explore. There would be higher mob spawn rates in the nether for all mobs.


    - Remove the koth and all the pvp event things there currently are. Replace them with staff runed events, this makes the community more interactive and people will have more fun than just an around the clock every 2 hours pvp event where only maybe 2 people show up.


    - Remove the warp system there currently is where you need to search through pages of heads to find someone’s warp. Change it back to warping with commands /is warp DrDraven like this it saves time and will actually be used.


    - Get rid of the market it was a good idea but it can easily be replaced with an auction house. An auction house will be 20x more useful and players have been wanting an auction house sense season one. You should be able to access a GUI by doing /ah then there would be sections like in the shop where you can buy things to put something on the auction house you could do /ah sell hand (amount) or /ah sell inv (amount)


    - Remove taxes it was created to control the economy but when there is a powerhouse at #1 the economy can’t be controlled. It does not make the server any more fun for the players and it just annoys them and makes the players angry which makes them quit. People don’t like taxes in the real world neither do they on the server.


    - Delete the Vote shop unless you have other plans for it. It’s pointless to have other than to get vote crates which you can do with a command, unless you will add more things like buycraft items, ingame money, items, spawners, items into it.



    Add



    - This may not be possible but I think it is, and is only useful if there is more than one city. Create an End where every city can enter 1 End where there can be city events. Events such as Dragon killing, Parkour, PvP, Last City Standing, Bomb Wars, Castle Wars, Mega Boss Fights. None of these events should be automated with a plugin! All these events would be staff ran and the teams would be the Citys. Coral vs Maroon that kind of thing. The winning city would get a global prize maybe a crate all or everyone on that city gets an amount of money or items.



    - Add hopper minecarts back into the game. Yes this may cause some lag but it’s not like the server can’t handle it. This would allow players to make all kinds of farms and machines, it would allow people to be unique with their farms and not just everyone on island top having the same exact farm.



    - Make a list on forums or for SrMods+ to view of every time a staff member uses /tp and to who they tped to. There has been so many staff members throughout every single season of SkyMetro where staff abuse their powers on the top islands and other people. This would eliminate that possibility because if they know they will get caught then they simply will not do it. For example if this was season 2 and a Mod tped to my island in vanish without me knowing that would be abuse because everyone on the staff team knows my island had the best farm designs and that I didn’t hack, so there would be no reason for them to be there. This list would show that the Mod tped to me then the SrMods+ can confront them to see what they were up to. Yes it is a lot of work but it will save so much time and will allow the players to actually not be scared the staff will do it. In past seasons everyone knew staff did it but they couldn’t catch them. This is a solution.



    - If someone has a rank on the server allow them to have the rank on forums and discord. Its already allowed on discord but it would be nice to have on forums if at all possible.



    - Add chat colors. For example “&3Hello”. Yes this would cause some oddness in chat and would make the Staffs text not as visible but you can solve that by blocking some of the colors. For instance block the color black and the staffs chat color and all the ones like bold, underline, the one that keeps changing. This is a simple change that could keep players happy. For staff make it a bright White and maybe have it bold unless that looks weird in chat. This feature could be accessible by Atlas+ or Omega+ but I think Atlas+ would be better personally.



    - Have one day out of the week where maybe from 3pm-7pm there is double xp. This could help players with the xp shop I am about to suggest. This could also be automated with a plugin on a loop.



    - Create an xp shop where instead of xp being usless people could use their xp for items/ money. There could be an xp shop next to the crypto shop and vote shop. Inside this shop there can be items like $10,000 for 10 levels, $5 BuyCraft Gift Card that you can only use for SkyMetro for 45 levels, items in the shop such as sell wands, crates, and spawners. Yes this may mean you are losing money to people just getting xp to buy things but it’s not a lot of money and it makes the server less P2W and makes people to not complain about it being P2W.



    - Add it so if you buy Omega then upgrade to Atlas you get both Omega and Atlas kits.



    - In one of the shops ingame maybe the vote shop or xp shop add a /fly command, add two of them. The first one can be temp fly and the 2end can be the actual command. The temp one could be for an hour or two and allows them to fly, the perm one will allow them to actually have the command /fly of course these will be expensive in the shops. This would cause confusion with fly hackers with staff but all you would need to do is create something where it tells the staff that the player has that. Maybe a prefix on their name visible to staff.



    - Add villager spawners to the shop. You could go two ways with this either when you kill the villagers they drop emeralds or it just spawns villagers.



    Suggestions


    - Make items in the BuyCraft accessible with ingame currency. Maybe through the Crypto Shop, XP Shop, Vote Shop, or Ingame money. For example if the economy is based off of mining Robots and Robot Upgrades could be bought with ingame money as well as irl money.


    - For the economy either make it based off of mining or spawners. If it’s based off of mining then you need to make Robots and Robot Upgrades buyable with ingame currency or people will leave sense its boring. If you make it spawners then allow robots to afk them. Yes they are able to do it the setting is disabled. Either way you make the economy you should make robots buyable with ingame currency and irl currency. Yes that means the server will get less money but it’s not like alex can’t afford it.


    - Put the players and the community above money. Put it this way if you make the community happy and you listen to them there will be more players eventually, More players = more money naturally. If you do not listen to the community then this server will never learn from its mistakes, aka going from 1.3k people to 10.


    - If you do the events I suggested and the things I said like the Nether, End, and all the independent events the YouTubers you guys get will not leave so soon because then they will have content for their viewers and that content is actually interesting. Do NOT have the events automated with plugins! Have the events ran by staff. This makes the server more interactive, more effective, and shows the community you can actually take the time out of your day to do something for them. Hell if you don’t want to do it DM me on discord @NecroticPlague#6778 I will make the events myself and moderate them if no one can’t take the time to do it.


    - Have the higher staff actually all the staff check on the server ingame and on forums. Do not go weeks without looking at forums. It takes 10 seconds to google SkyMetro.net and maybe 5 minutes to see if there is anything new. I don’t expect Loki, Luck, or trkey to look at the forums it’s not their specific job to. What I’m saying is get Input from the server and give them output keep them updated let it be known you care. Say you’re in a country where you never see the president speak, no one of high importance care about his people, you are one of his people. The only people doing anything with the people are the cops and they are only arresting people. The people go wild at that point, or leave to another county. That is SkyMetro rn. Helpers and Mods are the cops.



    You have probably already read some of these suggestions other places but I might as well put them all together. Hopefully you guys will actually take these suggestions and implement them. Thanks for reading.

    @DrDraven i don’t like the idea that you can buy items with XP, Me and other good players gets in 30minuts 60 Levels, and when I play in a day 3 hours and I’m XP farming i can make 40 dollar gift Card in 1 day. Easy Genesis and robots then

    I’ve went back through the old suggestions, and taken accepted ones that were never added/finished. Please take the time to consider adding these and or finishing what has been in development.


    Events:


    There should be a building contest where people can enter from different realms and theirs captains. The captains select their team members and they start building. Members in the server would then vote for who they think should win. The top winners from the 3 different realms then have one build off to see who wins a paypal or rank prize. Each new building contest will have a different theme. This will test players building skills.


    Computers:


    My island members cannot use the computer as I am the owner of the island. They wish to use blueprints and gain crypto shards while I am offline or unavailable. Maybe add a setting where you can choose who gets to use it?


    Casino (I know this is in development as I’ve been in the building already):


    My suggestion will improve the server by adding a gambling and more competitive experience to the server with a casino plugin, this plugin is like the coin flip plugin but it starts to roll between all the people that have bet money (max people per role is 10) everyone will pick a colour and if it lands on that colour then they win all the money everyone has put in.


    Apartments:


    Being promised since season one, please release these or just announce that they are no longer in development. If you do release them here is one suggestion for them. The highest rank receives a special apartment separate from the other and it is just a little bit bigger. If you own one of these appartments it helps contribute to your is top!


    Vote Parties:


    Once the server reaches a certain amount of votes (200 or 250), a vote party will occur within the servers, allowing a small amount of ore blocks (Between 8 and 32) to be given to a player within 10 seconds, every second they will receive something. If players wish to not participate within the vote party, they may type ./vp off and not receive any blocks whilst the vote party is occurring. If a player's inventory is full whilst the vote party is happening, the blocks will be dropped below them


    Vote For Fly:

    Self explanatory, vote and receive 15-30 minutes of flight.


    Chest Shops:


    Get rid of the shitty crystals or whatever, just like the market at spawn. Bring it back to the og chest shops that aren’t as stupid as the ones that exist that make it unbearable to create and useless.


    Reports:


    /report so people can report hackers to staff quickly. (We just had a hacker flying on our island at speed 15 with no rank defo would have been useful for when that happened)


    /Server or /Skyblock (Realm): @Isabah


    Isn't it very annoying to go to hub and then run to the NPCs and click them all the time when you switch cities, especially staff as they have to moderate at least 1 city. For instance, if there is a hacker in Coral City and the staff is in Crimson where there are no staff in Coral (or the staff being afk), this case would have to solved as soon as possible. Most players, according to me, experience lag when going to hub (1st lag) and they go to their preferred city (2nd lag). If this command gets added, they can just type it in and they would be off. It is basically similar to going from hub to city but instead from in-game. I understand that this sounds as if I am being a bit lethargic but it will also save time and prevent lag to those who do not have a good PC.


    /Pay


    Have /pay as the main way to pay people and the withdrawing/bank notes as a secondary currency for trades and other things.


    Growth Rates:


    I think that the growth rate for crops should be increased. It takes several minutes for just 1 cactus to grow and increasing the rate a bit would help out a lot.


    Investments:


    The idea revolves around you can pay to invest in a company and randomly the company will do well and do bad. You would be able to sell a %of the income to other players and they will get % of money back. Over time the company will give you money but can also take money away from you as well depending on how well the company is, if there is a system that can be put in place, say the better computers you will have the better the company will perform. This would also apply to the more players you have in your company, more players = more computers required.


    Do an unban all, and then add unbans to the store.


    Self explanatory. It was also suggested, accepted, then never done/added. I appealed months ago, I understand what I did, and why it was wrong. And what I should have done instead.


    Nether:


    Fix it, delete what you have, it’s useless and a waste of space. Add koth to the warzone at spawn. What was the point of adding this when we had the one at spawn? By doing this you would allow even more building space for constructors, but also make nether portals useful, so they actually had a purpose. It should all be connected.


    Robots Should Load Owners Computer:


    This will allow people who cannot afk all the time to use their robot to get shards and stuff. I personally cannot leave my computer on 24/7 like others, and being able to use my robot would be useful, or even make it an upgrade.


    Staff:

    Remake the staff team. Staff that currently exist have abused for people in the past, and are still walking around as staff today. @Amazing message me for proof and other things.


    Suggested Blueprints:


    Glow (tier one only) :

    Can be applied to bows, swords and axes,

    Has a 10% chance (or lower) to make the opponent glow for 5 seconds after the hit.


    Drill (tier one only) :

    Can be applied to pickaxes only,

    Drill can be used to mine in a 3 x 3 area.


    Lumber (tier one only)

    Can be applied to axes only,

    Can be used on axes to cut down the whole tree just as the Treecapitator Mod. (I don't know if this custom blueprint can be actually made)


    Flash (tier one, two and 3)

    Can be applied to boots only,

    Gives a permanent speed boost.


    Hopper and Hopper Carts:

    Make hoppers faster, the lag no longer comes from how many hoppers there are but how slow items are moved and on the ground. Hopper carts should be added back, whether craftable or purchasable (the ladder is worse). Last season the redstone fix was added to relieve the server of some stress. Hoppers now move 64 items at a time but at a horrendously slow rate. It's said to do this to fix lag. In the new season redstone is uncraftable and you have to purchase it in shop, my suggestion is that hoppers should be speeded up, now that you have to purchase hoppers for such a high amount the lag is more likely to come from more items on the ground than hoppers moving it because of the slowness of hoppers a TON more items will be on the ground. Please take time to consider this as speeding up hoppers will enhance the fun of the server and could possibly fix lag of so many entities being on the ground. Also, add the purchase or crafting of hopper minecarts back, (add the delay to them if need be) You've already implemented 5h reboots which should fix lag themselves.



    Iron Golem Spawners:


    Fix the regular spawners, they are not worth it to purchase anymore. Spawners in general are trash now.


    Profile Badge Boosters (special abilities through /profile badges):

    Get rid of profile badges. Replace them with a special “badge” that gives you boosts ingame, these boosts could consist of 2x More Fortune, 5% More Money Selling Items, Items In Shop Are 5% Cheaper, The Ability To Fly Without A Rank, Better PvP Stats, Faster Mining, Generation Of Items/Currency, and Faster Computer Generation. These “badges” could be bought on the BuyCraft and or ingame shops. This would bring a new edge to the game and also make it more competitive, fun, and individualized for the players.

    The amounts are just examples. Also if you have a better idea for what xp could be used for please say it that’s what this entire thread is for.

    Thank you everyone for your suggestions, I've read through everything and will take it all into consideration while working on SkyMetro's next season.

    Like I said before, we're hoping to release early next month.
    More info coming soon.
