I can haz /effect nao plz?
« on: September 13, 2014, 01:28:48 pm »
potions suck, their duration sucks, them taking up a spot on my bar where i could have another building block sucks....

inconvenient and terrible concept

ya know what would be cool? if there was some kinda /effect command that let my apply a potion for any duration  ;)

luckily vanilla creative minecraft comes equipped with just such a command!

unfortunately we currently don't have access to it......

i'm suggesting we should....

recruit/builder perk maybe?

arg1: "it's creative we don't need potions"
resp1: nightvision..... turns out building in the dark sucks, and spamming a night vision pot that lasts for an unreliable amount of time and takes up a spot in my inventory sucks....

arg2: "just donate for /ptime"
resp2: turns out the sun doesn't work underground.....

arg3: "just use a potion"
resp3: time consuming, annoying, takes up a spot i could have a building block, disrupt my creative flow, and there's a perfectly good vanilla creative mc command that allows me to apply an effect for any length of time avoiding this hindrance entirely, just need access to it

arg4: "we could make /effect a donation"
resp4: while i have nothing against supporting the server, it's a vanilla command and charging for vanilla things is iffy at the moment

arg5: "just download a hacked/modded client with perma brightness"
resp5: yea... doable but there's a convenient command built into mc already that saves me researching and downloading some sketchy 3rd party tool.....

arg6: "people will apply too long of an effect and be stuck with it requiring constant intervention"
resp6: drinking milk removes potion effects, also setting the /effect time to 0 or /effect clear will remove it.

arg7: "i know adjust your monitor settings so the brightness and gamma are really high!"
resp7: lol... no

Seems reasonable

if you add this you should be wary of people using really high level speed potions.  I have seen that crash servers in the past

As have I, we could always have a reboot system if the server did crash, also did you guys bungee up survival and creative? It would make sense if you did.

idk how that could happen, for the effect cap is level 255, and the only way i see servers being crashed is too much rendering, which is kinda hard to do when there is a world border. just my thoughts :P

I have seen the command /speed 10 crash multiple infinitely generated plot world server.  I am not sure how /effect speed 255 would affect a limited world border server, especially if all the chunks are already pretty much loaded.

 The problem with this is, someone could do /effect <Guestname/someoneWithout/effect> and they could do blindness, what would they do if someone just keeps doing it, they cant do /effect 0 to stop it.

There are separate permissions to give effects to others so that isn't a problem. Still not sure about this, I don't think it's really worth what problems there could be. I tested it a while ago, and there are a few.
