For 1.8 we will be aiming for simplicity. There are several large plugins that while fun in practice, became unused and unnecessary.
To be removed (other plugins still being reviewed):
- Economy (Shops, Baron Bucks, pay-per-use commands)
- Emerald Tools
- Economy's are just too incredibly difficult and flawed to implement into Minecraft. Instead, we will continue to use our Kudos points system. Kudos are points given out to players from staff if they see a player doing a good deed or contributing to the community by some means. Spending Kudos will give you permanent access to special non-game-changing tools or commands. The system still needs a lot of tweaking.
/home will be free. I will look into multiple /homes, but that will likely be a Kudos package.
Feel free to discuss this here
