    I really don’t understand why gen buckets are so looked down upon as this is a regen server and not 100% flats walls.

    Pros:
    More bases are being created as it’s more efficient and easier to gen in a walls

    Less glitched lava pools are created as people arnt grinning walls with lava, which means less jobs admins have to deal with.

    More raiding, easier for cannon boxes

    More f top being added as more people are making bases, growing the economy.

    Cons:

    People arnt genning in walls the traditional way?



    I don’t see the issue with adding these as it really just benefits people and doesn’t ruin anything with factions as people still need to fill regens and sand walls.

    In my opinion, its too easy. Not only will this basically stop genning in overall it barely takes any time to make an actual base. Although the addition of Gen Buckets seem to be a good idea, this will not give be a challenge yet just boring amounts of time clicking. Anyways there is nothing wrong with genning with lava and water anyways except from you need to put in effort, also I'd rather not want to raid someone with 20 chunks of sand walls even if they have no other defenses.

    I mean yea... its a regen meta server.

    My opinion: GenBuckets are usefull in servers that lava is blowable by tnt, BUT theres genbuckets for lava sources (meaning there could be a genbucket that generates regens, now that sounds stupid but thinking of how many of them you have to do it could work out as a rare item that should be obtainable by objective orianted events).

    Why theyre not going to be added:

    Cosmic thinks genning walls is stupid, theyre focusing more on rewarding people who know how to protect a base and evolve it, adding genbuckets brings up the thought that more people who arent worthy of developing a "career" on the ftop get a free chance.

    GenBuckets arent going to get added, although the regen genbucket is fun and fits cosmic.

    It will add a lot more money into the economy which would change a lot. It would create an unbalanced economy and they’d need to adjust a lot for it to fix it.

    it would only be for cobblestone, people would still need to properly fill regens and make sand walls.

    ok, you make a really valid point and i do agree to an extent, but if this were to be implemented, it would need to require the same grind.
    so, in my opinion genbuckets should never be able to be purchased from shop. perhaps crafting them with 1 lava bucket and 1 water bucket to give you 2 genbuckets. (to a degree this remains a good ratio considering when genning walls one lava bucket usually creates 2 cobble columns, with one water bucket acting in the same ratio)

    This would keep the grind the same but without the ability for money to influence the ease of base building too much or too early in the season, while also eliminating the risk of lava pools, saving admins time (although in the scheme of things, draining lava oceans probably doesn't take a huge portion of their time)

    although i don't have a particular preference whether genbuckets become a thing or not, implementing them in the wrong way would jeopardise base-building as a whole, contradicting your original aim of increasing base-building, so it would have to be a community-based discussion, although i don't feel this would tip in your direction. Whether such a discussion/poll is opened... Well thats up to the big guys upstairs.
