Title: [Pixelmon] The return.
Post by: TheUnknown54 on July 21, 2020, 10:04:13 pm
Good evening, everyone. For those that are not in our Discord, I will be posting here.

It's been long overdue that the SORB Pixelmon server makes its return. The buildteam and I will be working for the next week or two to return this server to SORB. The moment it's in a working and playable state it will be released and most likely still be worked on.

For a short time it will not be accessible through the hub, but we will work our way towards getting it to work through the hub, so that you just have to connect through one main IP, which makes it easier.

Until then, I appreciate all the support everyone has been giving to SORB. We strive to make the best out of this network for every and each of our players.

Any questions, suggestions or concerns, reply on this topic here. I will do my best to keep my eye on this post and answer replies. You're also welcome to message me on Discord.

Ohhh I’m glad it will be returning, but I have some questions:

1. Will the gym leaders be players or npcs or maybe both?
2. Will the gyms be Gen 2 again or Other gens?

Honestly as a pixel player. Im getting sick and tired of gen 2 gyms, gen 4 gyms didnt even last long and the community was dead in that era. I recommend keeping gen 4, as for gym leaders. I prefer players then bots.

But all i can say now is im happy pixel is returnjng. Best of luck

I'll leave this up to the majority of players. If you want to see player ran gyms, it will happen. If you want NPC ran gyms, it can happen. Entirely up to the players of which one they want/prefer.

Honestly, I as a non-pokemon-educated-person, cannot say anything on this and will leave it for Kazi or whoever is good with Pokemon and is helping with the server development. All I know is if it's player ran gyms it's up to them, etc.

My suggestion, have both NPCs and Players for Gym Leaders, but restrict those for only when gym leaders are offline. If the leader is online, it will be mandatory to fight the actual player. To discourage fighting the NPCs over the Player, I'd give the NPC Gym Leaders a slight buff.

this is something i saw on another server and it worked kinda well:
have both npc and player gyms- before people can battle the player gyms they must first complete all of the npc gyms, only when they collect all of the npc badges they can apply to become a gym leader.
though on that server what i saw is that after defeating all of the npc gyms theres a player thats called an elite (only 1) which you can battle after gathering all of the npc badges, after defeating that elite you can either become the elite yourself or become the champion- or something like that.
so imo its best if we have npc gyms (the ai had improved from what i know so they can be pretty hard) and then 4 elite 4s with typing of their choosing- applying and challenging the e4 is only possible after beating all of the npc gyms. after defeating all of the e4s you can chose either to dethrone one and replace them (only if they have a team ready), or become champions- and i think we should have more than one champion.


also if you need any help with pixelmon hit me up- been playing it for a very long time (and just a huge pokemon fan)

this sounds like a very good idea

adding another point to maybe make it stronger- with using only 4 humans players make it that players are dependent on less people to be online. while if we use both 8 human gyms and 4 human e4 it means playes are dependent on 12 people to be online instead of just 4
