    AFK nerf on SkyBlock, SkyGrid, and Survival

    A while ago I made a thing where mobs did not drop anything unless killed by unnatural causes but it was not liked at all. I have changed that so there is now a 50% chance of no drops instead, and re-enabled it. Keep in mind attacks, poisons, projectiles are still 100%. This will make it so you can still afk at your spawner farms, but you will get half as much income as manually grinding them. This change is done to reward players for being active, and to help reduce the infinite money inflation spawner machine. Whether you like this change or not, I think you can agree that at least some changes like this are necessary.

    - the 50% number may change in the future depending

    - this change will not be taking place on factions or prison

    - be glad i didnt go with the income tax idea

    Most likely, otherwise people will be losing money or barely breaking even.

    I don't like this change so much, its going to mess up the economy of skyblock greatly. It was never a problem and the change makes a problem for most of your servers donators. The donors and some members are really the ones being shot down here, as they're the main ones who actually afk, the people who support the server most. Please consider reversing this, as most donors are rather annoyed with this change only happy people are few guests and members.

    I think it would be better to implement an Auto-restart.... at 2 certain points in a day, the server restarts. This will kick all AFK players and will not grant them the advantage. With this you will only punish the the AFKers and not the WHOLE community.

    People have auto reconnect mods like 5zig which make them sign back in(I am guilty of this myself), which in a way defeats the purpose of a dual restart.

    It's kind of rude to assume that only a "few guests and members" appreciate it. I think it's a great change that can finally contradict afking so that people can earn money and actually do stuff on the server, as well. There was no such thing as AFKing(there was afking at grinders, I suppose) before the reset, why can't it go back to that? I understand it does kind of ruin a lot that people have strived to do and make, but it's really upsetting to see a huge server full of people, building and crafting, exploring and fighting - only to realize half of them are sitting around, afking. I think this is a great change, but we shall see how it carries through.

    Just be glad that Josh decided for this change and not some of the other ideas that we had came up with. This is a soft way of nerfing it compared to some ideas. Trust me on that one.

    If they would add it to the banned mods it wouldn't be a problem. I know it's not that simple but it's just an idea.... They can probably use it and find a way around the 5zig mod

    The nerf is good as it now you still get 50% of the income, and you can still afk

    Wouldn’t be practical as it would most likely be hard to police and the auto reconnect is one of many functions that the mod has, most of these functions do not provide a direct advantage like that, more so handy information if anything.

    All these people complaining and Im just here wondering why its added after a few months when all the people already have hours of afking and billions of dollars..
    I like the idea but I think its kinda useless since people already exploited it.

    Making 5zig bannable would suck for many reasons

    Should just ban afking. It has no place on phanaticmc. Also why isn't it implemented on all servers :thinking:
