    :D Okay. So can someone maybe make something that has Survival Games DeathMatch? It seems possible since other people have that plug-in but I've heard it's hard to make. Maybe like eu.hivemc.com

    I think something that should be added to the "Things not to do" section is don't be overly picky.

    All too often I see plugin requests where a perfectly viable solution is presented but the requester responds with messages like "sorry, that isn't a viable option" or "it contains feature X which I don't want | it doesn't contain feature X which I want".

    Is it possible to make it to where when you hit create thread, the template is already there, like how they do with tickets on BukkitDev? That would help alot of people :p

    No, nor do I want to force the template on people.

    can you also add on this list "can be done with commandblocks"? This seems to be a reoccurring theme in plugin requests and gets quite annoying to see requests that can be done in vanilla.

    Plugin category: Server Mod

    Suggested name: Space Flight Engine Plugin

    What I want: I would like a power supply that could be attached to a space ship (or really any object) and make it fly.

    The BIG difference from other spaceship plugins is that I want to be able to create my own massive star cruisers and attach this engine to it as opposed to crafting a spaceship with a crafting box.

    I do not want to be limited as to the type of ship built this is why I want a plugin that just builds an engine that can be attached.

    Ideas for commands: No commands needed for this plugin.

    Ideas for permissions: No permissions needed

    When I'd like it by: Yesterday.

    1. You can't add new blocks
    2. To request a plugin you're supposed to make a new thread, not post it on the guide :p

    @Hoolean
    Yeah, I put the request in the wrong place, DOH! I dont think I am requesting that a new type of block needs to be built. I would think it could be built out of existing blocks

    Could you add a recommended title format?

    This may prevent as many people from putting:

    PLZ HALP NED PLUGINZ

    as their title so often ;)

    mbaxter Suggestion to the "Not to Do" list. Use a descriptive title. Topic titles like "I need a plugin." shouldn't be allowed.

    I want to note that creating custom entities is technically possible; it just calls for a lot of reflection, nasty NMS code,and results in an invisible entity.

    You must have an English description. If you offer another language as well, that's okay, but you must have English.

    I propose a section for "Poll uses"
    It's really pointless to have "Do you like this plugin" with Yes or No answers.
    I'm CERTAIN timtower could also come up with examples as to why this should be included.

    Exactly - something for us (and moderators) to refer to and catch people out (because something like that ^^ poll is completely pointless.)
