Before you say that this is never going to happen and that it would be too major and too controversial, hear me out Were you ever wondering where the fuck stone and gold was on weird maps? Were you digging dirt for 5 minutes on any of Punk's maps - for example, Punk123_AlienFrogAssault - just to find nothing but dirt and bedrock? Shocked to find out stone was only located near tent and at mid? Then this suggestion is for you! It's a bit stupid that you have to dig, dig and keep digging on big, weird maps if you need some of that beautiful building siege and tunnel material called GOLD. On some maps it's in weird places you'd never expect it to be in, sometimes THERE'S NO FUCKING GOLD LEFT. And you have no way of knowing that. Similiar with stone. The worse is, that you could actually find out - and not many people know about it; you'd have to open console and type /savemap mapname. You could actually fucking go to kag folder / base / maps and see in the mapname's png where the goddamn gold and stone is. It shouldn't be like that. It's way too unfair. Actually, I don't think many people except me know you can do this. It would make sense to fix it then; make gold, stone, actually everything show on minimap. That way new players would know where to dig to help their teammates if they are constantly being rekt by tryhard knights. It's natural that worse players would go builder and dig or go archer and camp rather than go knight and try to fight - and get rekt hard and insulted for jabspamming. It's a simple hierarchy; new players could be minecrafters and stay in base - the better ones on the front. But we're getting off-topic now... Now, you could say that it's too big of a change. That you're supposed to keep digging and digging until you find the gold somewhere. That argument is stupid; you'd have to memorise where shit is on every map. Or you could just play the A-B-C game to figure out where you should dig: keep digging down, or maybe left or right. Finding gold shouldn't depend on luck. So why not make gold, stone, even bedrock show on minimap? I'm not asking for rats to be marked and shown in flashy colours on the map - I'm asking a simple thing - I'm asking for a QoL tweak. People who fucked with the console and found out about some commands already have an unfair advantage - like me. Maybe eventually every veteran would find out about this; it'd become another part of new players' complaints that "the veterans and tryhards are rekking way too hard and this game is unwelcoming to new players". Take any random 10 maps from the official mapcycle; at least 6 of them will have partially weird gold/stone placement Look at this abomination as an example: When I /savemapped, I didn't believe it at first. The stone placement - and in some parts, gold - makes no fucking sense. That thick, bigger than @daskew87's dick (sorry) line of dirt is probably the bane of many gold-diggers' existence. Inb4: "fault of mapmakers". More bullshit arguments. It makes sense the floor isn't made of gold and that gold is actually supposed to be underground; there is no way to put gold in places where every person would expect them to be. People could logically come to the conclusion they should dig down - and then maybe to the right... or maybe to the left? They have no fucking idea where specifically the gold is. I do not believe there is any alternative to fixing this problem. Remove the /savemap command; people still can go in the kag folder / base / maps and try to find out maps currently being played on the official server. Even if you'd want to make people not be able to look at the maps' .png - why? WHY? So people spend hours looking for gold in weird places instead of actually helping their team? Now, you could also leave it like it is. Another question - why'd you want to? As I said, I fucked with the console, I can look at the .png while others don't know they can, I have an advantage. Maybe I'm missing something, maybe there could be a a good alternative to it. Please explain; meanwhile, now I'll believe making gold, stone, - actually wait, maybe just show the .png? why not? - shown on the minimap is the only fix to this problem. TL;DR Make stuff, including gold and stone, show on the minimap. Why? Because you shouldn't be forced to dig in weird places in hoping of getting gold; because you can actually see the .map png - and most people don't know about it; because shitmaps; because it makes sense.
