@Dulciloquy - "Suggestions for rewards? We're definitely aware this happens to higher level players, I would recommend thinking about solutions and creating a forums thread" - Mineplex Discord I know what you're probably thinking. "New chest rewards, not another one of these threads! You're probably just going to talk about some bad rewards from chests, there's already so many of those!" Well, I can't really blame you. https://www.mineplex.com/threads/unusable-illuminated-chests.44150/#post-236071 https://www.mineplex.com/threads/new-cosmetic-idea.67939/#post-238975 (kind of) https://www.mineplex.com/threads/loot-chests-limit-the-amount-of-pet-dupes-to-1-per-chest.61920/ some other chest idea https://www.mineplex.com/threads/cosmetic-axe-names.61851/ more https://www.mineplex.com/threads/zombie-morph.56580/ You get the point Well, today I would like to propose something different, which would be adding new Illuminated (or old/ancient/mythical) chest rewards. I have been seeing a lot of players complaining about how after they've unlocked all of the cosmetics, that they can no longer use their chests for anything. Mainly, the only changes I've seen players suggesting would be to trade back in your Illuminated Chests, but I don't see the point in that. If you've bought Eternal and know what the rewards will give, eventually you know you'll run into an issue like this https://imgur.com/a/GnVtjLL. Getting back on topic, instead of trading illuminated chests for anything, why not add more cosmetics? This wouldn't break EULA regulations, it would make players more happy, and allow players to use their chests more effectively instead of letting them gain dust and grow cobwebs. Here are some ideas I've came up with. Obviously, I'm not the most creative person on the planet, so feedback down below or just ideas down below would help me out a lot. With that being said, let me get into my first idea. I don't remember exactly what year this happened. but I know for a fact that during Christmas time, there was custom music being played around the lobby. https://imgur.com/a/siY3Tvh We all know this very useful and cool section of the cosmetics, right? Well, instead of playing the default Minecraft musics around the lobby, I suggest that there should be custom made musics. This would be a lot nicer than playing unoriginal music, and would obviously give more rewards. As for the section right now, the rewards should stay, but add in more music into this section. The top will be the basic music discs, then the more you go can be custom blocks representing the musics created (sorry I don't have images available, I'm not that cool.) With this being said, instead of just having custom Christmas music being played around the lobby, making separate musics would be very cool in my opinion. If possible, making it so the music only played for you would be cool, but if not then keeping the system the way it is right now would be fine as well. The reason this wouldn't be a big issue is because you can turn your music off in the settings. Apart from this, I have another idea to propose. This one could strike some controversy, so I'd love to hear what you guys have to say about this. Join and Leave messages. I know some other servers have had this before, but this would be different. It wouldn't be exclusive to ranks (unless they ended up receiving a custom one, not my choice to decide), but rather from old/ancient/mythical/illuminated chests. How it would work would be when you join a lobby, it'll put a message in the chat once you join just for a little cosmetic feel. Here are some cringey introduction ones I created https://imgur.com/a/URfqseI (I'm not very creative and just made some on the server really quick, but you hopefully see what I'm getting at. This kind of would be like taunts, but just to show you've joined in a more creative way. I also mentioned leaving messages, so again here are some more bad ones https://imgur.com/a/ruOCCjJ (note that they correspond with the previous ones, they don't have to). A lot of people probably won't see the point in this, but it doesn't seem like it would be negatively harming players, just a cool little cosmetic to show off what you have. Obviously, these don't have to be the messages, but these are template ideas. If you're wondering where it'd be located in the cosmetics menu, I have 2 ideas. 1 idea would be separating both of them so they are separate cosmetics (not my personal pick, but it would fit the cosmetics menu nicer), and the second idea would be combining them into one cosmetic (though it'd be weird to add this into a slot, but let me give you the one I think it would fit the best in https://imgur.com/a/4bDqtDO) These ideas are not set in stone, but hopefully you all will leave some good feedback on this idea. Well, it seems I've ran out of ideas for new cosmetic sections, but I still have some other cosmetic ideas. For the hats section, with all this Alien Invasion and Area 51 meme related topics going on, maybe add an alien hat? It wouldn't do anything, just for cosmetic purposes. I am not sure if the morph has the hat already on it, but if not this could be a good idea. Also, once 1.15 is close to releasing, maybe a bee hat for celebration? It doesn't have to be only for this, just a bee hat in general could be cool. The last hat I would suggest would be an angry one, like a face. Here is where they would be added in case anybody was confused https://imgur.com/a/A8TN1Fy. This could be used just to show expression, since there is a heart emoji one already. This is all I have for the hats, let me move on to the next section. Costumes and morphs I got nothing, but for the banners, maybe adding a notch apple banner? For the original Notch supporters of Minecraft, this could be a cool way of showing off Minecraft in general, and definitely is possible to create. Also, a dragon banner would be very cool as well. If anybody is confused where it'd be located as well. here is where it would be https://imgur.com/a/J078gOs. That's all I have for this section as well. For the mounts section, maybe having an Iron Golem mount walking around would be cool? Every 15 seconds, it could do a ground pound/earthquake ability, and the morph would be somewhat fast. It would knockback players a few blocks, and would put particle effects on the floor for an earthquake type feel. If two iron golems were to run into each other, they'd go flying backwards and their arms would go up to represent them hitting each other. Maybe it could also have a flower in its hand if there was a villager close, but this is pretty complex for just a morph. The bottom sections of the cosmetics seem fine, this would be the only suggestion I have. If anybody is confused, here is where it'd be https://imgur.com/a/gk4sq2G. Honestly, I've ran out of ideas for the rest of them. If you combine everything I've covered within this thread, it can lead up to probably 10-15+ chests. While this may not solve everybody's issue, this would definitely be a cool cosmetic change to see. Once again, nothing here is final and I am not very creative, so hopefully you guys can leave some ideas below as well. I'm open to feedback, and hopefully this would resolve everybody's issues!
