A collection of suggestions from xP Jen
« on: March 16, 2017, 12:22:25 AM »
I have a couple of suggestions for the server. Instead of spamming the forums with seperate posts, I thought i'd make a megathread for them.

Gym League: Having a Gym League run by players would add a competitive aspect to the server. Many servers have player-run leagues where people send in applications and the admins choose players to run the leagues, like in the Pokemon games. Naturally, i'd expect xP// to handle this process differently, but I still think having a Gym League would be a great idea.

Increased Spawn Rate: A problem i've noticed in newer versions of Pixelmon is that the spawn rates are horribly low. I know it's possible to increase the spawnrate, so I think increasing the default spawnrate would be a good idea.

Custom Starters, maybe?: By default, the starters for Pixelmon are the starters from the games, so Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, etc. Some servers have custom starters, such as Riolu or Eevee. I'm not sure if it's possible to add starters, but replacing starters that nobody picks (such as Chikorita or the like) with more exciting options could make the server more unique and intriguing.

WonderTrade: Some servers run a plugin called WonderTrade, in which there's a pool of 100 random Pokemon, and you can randomly trade in one of your Pokemon for one of the Pokemon in the pool. Usually, servers have a cooldown of about an hour or so for this plugin. It can add some spice to the server, but it could allow you to get powerful Pokemon in exchange for something like a Magikarp.

EVs/IVs: There's another plugin which allows you to view your Pokemon's EVs and IVs. Since the mod itself doesn't allow you to do this, I think this is a great plugin because it makes EV training much easier to keep track of and boosts the competitive aspect of the server.

That's all I have for now. If I think of more, i'll add to this thread.

An xP// League sounds definitely like the kind of thing we'd do, that's 100% if this gets going.

Increased spawn rate.. I can see myself and XpanD wanting that, so sure!

We'll have to do some discussions, maybe even polls as to what the starters should be. I'll wait for XpanD to comment on that one :P

Alright, fair enough. If we do have custom starters, i'm vouching for Ralts to take a spot as one of those starters.

EDIT: I added a few more suggestions

WonderTrade would be cool, but it could be abused assuming you can get legendary pokemon.. I'd make the timer like once a day or something.

EVs in Pokemon are invisible, will have to talk to XpanD about that again! If we're staying faithful to the series, that is :P

Legendary Pokemon are never in by default, however players can add legends/shinies to the pool.

Not sure how the Wondertrade plugin works, but I have fond memories of using that feature in the real games. Also, custom starters sounds like fun. Trubbish, I choose you!

Yeah, the latest update added a ton of Gen 3 Pokemon and some others. Next update will have Mega Evolution, so that'll be pretty cool too.
