Wand of Animations - Unrestricted

The Wand of Animation has been a hot debate ever since we launched the server. We, the server managers, decided to limit the usage of the Wand of Animation to be blacklisted inside the Mob Duplicator due to the duplicative nature of this item.

For those that have never heard of either of these items or simply have no idea what I'm talking about - With this wand you are able to "animate" blocks, turning them into entities. If you then capture that mob in a Mob Imprisonment Tool you are then able to spawn them repeatedly with little to no cost. It's also worth pointing out the mob also drops the block when you kill it.

The question of "lag" also arose when discussing this item- as relatively large setups needs to be built in order continuously spawn in these mobs. Some argue that it's less lag than the alternative, but for some bizarre reason, with this version of Minecraft and with sponge, mob entities are usually the laggiest chunks on the server. 10-15 mobs outweigh hundreds of machines. That's pretty crazy.

 

But because players have been really persistent about wanting this item to work fully, I have decided that we are going to give it a try. For a short while this item will be removed from the blacklist on the Mob Duplicator. The point of this is to run a test to see if it's viable for server performance to have this item unbanned, and the idea is to run this test for 7+ days, but if it comes to it being ridiculously laggy then we may cancel the test early. 
This however, comes with it's own restrictions and a few things you should know if you plan on using it:
 

  • Items gained from using the Wand of Animation, as well as EMC gathered from the Wand of Animation, is not allowed to be sold, traded or given to other players. This will count as an offense against Rule 4.
  • Don't go overboard. The point of this test is to see if we can really have it unrestricted, if you, yourself, lag out the server with the mindset of "It's only unbanned for a few days, I gotta get the most out of it!" you are not only hurting yourself but also the playerbase.

 

A few disclaimers- We reserve the right to limit the functionality of the animated blocks, when it comes to spawn rates, drop chances, etc. But for now it's all default.
If staff find setups that cause unnecessary lag on the server they have the right to demand you to either turn the setup off or tear it down. If you are not compliant or unreachable, either or those things may be done for you, with no option for a Refund Request
And in extreme cases it can be punishable according to Rule 12
