The whole idea behind spout is wonderful. The HUD, music, events editing and most importantly the custom blocks and mobs functions are amazing. Though there are some nasty drawbacks. For one, users cant use client side mods. There are plenty of mods out there that enhance the users experience and don't really destroy the games integrity, like rei's minimap, that I would like to permit. The Cui mod for worldedit has made my life much easier but it wouldn't work when working on my server if I was using the spoutcraft launcher. Also, players have to use the spout launcher to be able to use most of the cool features that come with spout. The problem is I don't want to limit my player base to people willing to use the spout plugin. So I have been wondering what is it that keeps developers from creating a plugin with the cool features of spout like HUD and custom blocks/entities? Could a developer come up with a plugin with those features that wouldn't require a launcher or any action from the user that would still allow the use of client side mods. If this was possible would anyone be interested in discussing the development of such a plugin? I hope this is in the correct forum I really didnt know where this should go cuss its more of a question to a developer though it is actually requesting a plugin.
