    • You could make a chunk loader that loads a chunk for you when you arent there so when you go to bed youre still making money.
    • Pros
    No need for alts to afk
    More free player slots
    Can be donater item only

    • Cons
    Can lag server because many got chunk loaders?
    Risk at breaking economy

    Having more players on the server actually looks good on websites. People think it's a popular server while in reality, 99.99% are alts.

    There really isn't an issue with afking spawners. Most big factions have members who have 10+ alts. Free player spots really are not an issue on this server. If anything it will just cause lag. If you want to afk something but you don't want to leave Minecraft or your computer running all night you can use Console Clients or I believe VPSs work.

    Chunk loaders is not the way to go. I think you'd want something that allows you to spawn an NPC and it AFK's your spawners for you for a certain amount of time (I heard it was possible to do but not sure)

    Chunk loaders just keep the chunk active (good for crop/cactus farms), not necessarily keep spawners running. Spawners only remain active when you stand within 16 blocks of it. This is why you may see spawners in loaded chunks not spawn anything at all until you get near it

    I'm not a huge fan of this idea. Chunk loaders would be too op and would break the economy. Skyblocks economy this map is many times better than last map, and imo chunkloaders would ruin that.

    I disagree with the way it's worded but maybe by limiting the production by a higher percentage might make it more doable! :)

    Uh, you mean that a chunk loader (that loads 1 chunk), would somehow ruin an economy where anyone can have alts that load multiple chunks? I'm not sure that I follow your logic.

    I think that it might be an opportunity for additional server monetization. What if you could buy a pack of 4 chunk loaders for $5.00 from the MH store versus needing to go out and get an alt account and find computer resources to try and keep it running 24/7?

    Would still be cheaper long run to get a full mincraft account in the end, as that $5 is a one time use.

    though honestly it's amusing to see people saying chunk loaders would ruin economy, when having alts do the exact same thing. without alts your limited to a 1 chunk sized farm with alts you can have up to 20 chunks afk at any given time.

    I am going to say no to this suggestion, I think this would completely destroy the economy -1

    ...Followed by two more comments from people who don't understand this concept.

    Well how about acting all high and mighty explain it ashenfall? As far as i can see Alts and Chunk loaders server the same purpose here bar that alts can be set to do different tasks such as mining.

    Chunk loaders, as I already said, do not keep spawners active. So really their only good use would be for crop farms (preferably cactus). So technically they are not the same. In fact having alt's would, in the long run, be a better solution as realistically, if they were to add this, you will be paying some sort of fee to have your chunk's loaded for a certain amount of time. Whereas if you buy an alt (which go for as low as 30 cents PayPal for an unmigrated account), you can have this chunk afk'ed as long as you like.

    So in short, alt's hurt the economy more than a chunk loader can. In fact a chunk loader can only leave a small dent in our economy. Looking at it from this perspective, it would actually help players who for some reason can't afford alts and, at the same time, not be so overpowered. I actually got to speak to CullanP about chunk loaders, and he stated that it will potentially lag large servers (mainly Skyblock1). So don't expect to see this idea implemented for a long time. Use alts for now, or pay people to AFK for you
