But I built two cities, both of which I built while just a builder. Raz Collective and Oasis, and I had the freedom to build them the way I wanted to. I don't think we should take away that freedom from the server. I like both of my cities and I jump between them daily as I update and refurbish the buildings I constructed months ago, albeit with mod powers, it was only a week ago it was vanilla building techniques (with a fly mod).
We need to continue to let the server be as creative and imaginative as possible. Restrictions and excessive rules may hinder this.
I don't see it being much of a restriction if you let anyone build 100x100 towns. Also Kernalk, we have the no 1-block tower rule now. I didn't make that rule.
I really don't think that normal builders should be able to start cities though. It feels unfair to VIPs/Architects who don't have much power at all, and most cities made by builders only last for 2 days anyway. As you put it, they log on twice and leave all their shit behind. Also, if anyone is creative enough to build a good city anyway, they normally become VIPs/Architects by then.
Also, the only reason I was trying to develop an economy was because of the people who insist on having stores. There are no reasons for having stores, but people make them anyway, so I was trying to develop an economy.
Also, I want a reset that has no copying+pasting of cities or anything. Why? It just makes the map look really ugly, I remember it in January.
