    Thought I'd just make a suggestion megathread with some ideas that may have previously come up. Everyone knows there hasnt been much content added lately besides a couple player models, maps and taunts so I think its time to get some more added in to bring some change and new experiences which will hopefully drive people to play and donate.

    Donator items/perks/benefits: I have noticed donations havent been as much lately, now this may be due to other factors but i believe there should be more benefits or more things to be able to donate for.

    There is another slot for a deagle reskin so i think something just as a gold desert eagle or something would be nice for that bit extra. Or mayhaps a nerf gun reskin or any other reskin for that matter. Found https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126808316
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=218165544
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=564053307

    There is also another slot for a cosmetic item so i think another option there would be a good idea, something like a water gun, fireworks or something would be nice. Found a bubble gun which may be interesting, might have problems though if u cant stop unlimited firing https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=166839792.

    Also perhaps allowing donators to spawn in with a certain selection of primaries or perhaps even grenades would be a little extra. Could be problematic as some guns are obviously better than others and having all donators have access could increase the amount of them, eg shotguns. Weapon rebalancing is always an option. This may seem a bit pay to win though, but its still an option, even just grenades perhaps.

    Mayhaps even donators being able to nominate maps? I know it was removed because of spam but perhaps with the less players as donator it may help, also maybe make it nominate to come up on the voting section, not just vote to play it next.

    Another idea would be perhaps allowing purchasing custom titles and colours for the chatbox only, whilst keeping the normal ones on the tab menu, could be annoying to implement and confusing but its and idea, people like to have special titles so probs would get donors.

    Weapons: Fix some of them up eg famas, add perhaps add back galil just for an extra weapon.

    Maps: Removing maps that are hardly played as well as ones with issues eg plaza spawns. Also perhaps getting a few new fresh ones in, i know its hard because people always complain about changes and new maps probs would rarely get chosen but change is good.
    Remove: foundation, lunarbase, perhaps others

    Pointshop items: Think of adding a few new cosmetics or things that you could buy such as wings, weapon accesories or something as currently after buying a player model and a few hats there is nothing really to spend points on and they kind of sit their accumulating.

    Other:
    TTT ranking system like the one suggested by channingW here: http://arcadiaservers.com/index.php?threads/ttt-advanced-ranking-system.2058/
    I believe adding something else to work towards such as a rank will definetly encourage people to play more and is another neat thing next to your name for aesthetic. A lot of other servers have this and is doesn't really make it more competitive as there is still tryhards on arcadia anyway. Or you could make your own without the rankup periods and just have an exp based system.

    Another thing that would just be handy would be having traitor kills on the scoreboard so you can track how you're going. This has been suggested by Xenolith here: http://arcadiaservers.com/index.php?threads/traitor-kills-on-the-scoreboard-for-ttt.2185/
    It isnt a major thing as you can check how many kills at the end of a round but it would be nice to have.

    Adding reacts to the forums is a minor tweak and probs isnt really needed but I've seen it on other forums and its just a little extra thing rather than just having likes.

    Perhaps loosening language rules? I don't mean allowing insults and shit as that's obviously not okay but saying the r word and g word, etc describing something isn't really an issue to most although could be offensive to some, this is Australia though and a lot of people use heavy language

    These are just some ideas i had and felt i'd share to hopefully get the ball rolling, feel free to tear them apart if they are bad and include your own thoughts, suggestions or tweaks. It's time for some new stuff ay. I know its hard as whatever you add is always opposed by some but i think its time for new content.

    Would like to also suggest bringing back the leaderboards in-game if its possible e.g most T kills, most explosive kills, most knife kills. Gametracker grinding is fun, but it would add a whole new challenge for regular players like myself :)
    could add most knife kills on ailuros ;)

    I honestly agree with every suggestion there. Whether we like it or not, the server needs some new/more content. Gone are the days where players cared about Small Downloads and the such. Servers with more content actually do get more traffic. And some of the things suggested such as T Kills on scoreboard and the advanced score board would add far more fun to the server.
    +1 to all!

    Most of these I can do but that bubble gun is a piece of shit and I don't know how to fix it, fire rate is ezpz but the bubbles spawn in your head, I'll have someone who can actually code look at it.

    At the moment I have to run Yanz through some more stuff so we can replace and add a lot of stuff, I honestly don't have the motivation for it. I tried to fix that bubblegun and I wanted to die.

    Tkillz on scoreboard will be added soon and hopefully the golden deagle skin (second one)
    There is also a lot of work behind the scenes that Yanz and I have to do in regards to the server that is a pain in the ass and we have not gotten around to it.

    Rule changes are up to CMs not me.


    But yeah I'll talk to peepz next time I can and sort some shit out.

    Please ignore grammatical mistakes, I'm tired and had to rush this post :p

    "Hey I can do that"
    "Oh, that rules me out" I love self-deprecating humour.


    Seriously though I had little else to do and wanted to figure out the head-spawning issue. Which I've now fixed.
    I made a fair amount of other changes as well so I'll just list them:

    ADDED:
    - Bubbles now spawn in the correct position (this is adjustable as well, it currently spawns slightly within the gun itself, can easily be changed).
    - Doesn't fire anywhere near as fast / as far.
    - Slowed down fire-rate for both shooting types (blow and bomb). The bomb cooldown is at the default cooldown for the popcorn throw, but I suspect that has been changed and if so, the cooldown should probably be changed within this as well.
    - Different way that the bubbles come out (the same method as the popcorn). Works better, looks more natural.
    - Changed the way the bubbles remove, it sometimes failed to remove which caused massive lag.

    REMOVED:
    - Collisions. It currently goes through players. This is to stop the bubbles from pushing you back. Because of the fast fire-rate of the gun (even with the nerf), it pushes you back a lot compared to the Popcorn, and it constantly occurs. This also means that the bubbles can spawn within the gun, otherwise they would have to spawn outside of the gun.
    Ideally I would prefer to have collisions enabled, but I could not find a way to stop the pushing from occuring. If anyone knows how to disable that, I can quickly re-enable collisions but the bubbles will have to spawn from outside the gun.

    - Damage (if you were close enough it dealt damage to you).

    I think that's it. I tested this on my laptop, it appears to be working. Once I get back from holidays I'll properly check, but I think it should be stable.

    Can't edit above post....
    I realised I forgot to add something to the bubblegun that completely broke it.
    Anyway it's fixed now.

    Also whilst I'm here:
    The confetti cannon / popcorn / another item that may or may not be added take the slot of a grenade so that wouldn't work (properly, at least).
