Guys, I just wanna say THANKS for all your dedication to Bukkit. The reason it's so important is, when you take Minecraft + Bukkit to its ultimate logical conclusion, what do you end up with? The first real GUI MUD/MUSH. But in order to get there, we need the game to be able to do all the things you guys are working on. Here is what I think would be necessary to bring us to what could be, in my opinion, quite possibly the pinnacle of online gaming. What the players would see: -Players make characters with levels/hit points/races/etc. -A menagarie of monsters & npc's. - Customized weapons, armor, spells, etc. -reach a certain level, you can build a castle/dungeon/land -grouping -boss creatures -area-based PVP (mostly pvp with safe areas, or, mostly safe with arenas) What is needed for such a thing: - ACL's on x/y/z sections (Access Control Lists, for you non sysadmins) - sql backend controlling it all: boss drops, character info - set spawns w/timers (for bosses) - automated backups ETC. ETC. ETC!!!!!
