I own/run a survival PvP server (Wild Frontiers) and we are having a lot of fun!! However, most of my playerbase, including myself, would LOVE to see the following additions to enhance the experience:
(1) Ability to hear other players footsteps (we can only hear our own, or animals footsteps, even spiders We cannot hear other players sneaking up on us. This would greatly add to the immersion in RW!
(2) Edit: settings_show_playerdistance=false (server.properties)
Ability for server owner/admins to be able to hide player distance from being displayed on TAB (hold) player menu (easily exploited by those targeting individuals repeatedly).
(3) Be able to leave a group you are part of (so you can damage each other again, to train, pvp each other etc. otherwise groups are great!)
(4) Parachutes/glider/wingsuit/Hot Air Balloons? (admin toggle)
(5) grapling hooks (admin toggle)
(6) More weapons (catapult, ballista, handguns, Canons!)
(7) Cows are too LOUD in comparison with ambient sounds and other animals. Seems a bit too high (In real life, I have cows that live across the street from me and they freak even if I have RW volume set low).
(8) Distance you can access chests and other objects is too far (like 10+m back!) reduce to 1m or less, will help prevent the 'open chests' through wall issue (we prefer to not to use chest protection)
(9) Allow sharing of map waypoints (set waypoint that group members can see and share)
I'll post more as we think of it.
Otherwise, great great game and we look forward to future updates and plugins!
