    Ok, Before I introduce my thread, I'd like to introduce myself, Hi My name is DOOM_MAN_JOE, I'm a gold rank user who's an active player of Cubecraft. I think its a great server with a few Fun games That I like to play like Eggwars, FFA and the one thing that truely keeps me on here, Tower Defense. I think this is the Best non PvP game on all of the multiplayer Servers!

    But there's one BIG problem that I have, and this problem is a Universal problem that Lots of players face, Misplacement of towers. This probem is mainly caused by Trollers, Newbies or Very Ignorant people. What Happens is Players place towers in the wrong kinds of spaces, For example, Mr. Noob places a Zeus On a 5x5 space, Right where you were going to place a Leach Tower. But now Mr. Noob #2 Comes And places the leach on top of all those 3x3 spaces and now you have no space and lose to something pity like a skeleton.


    Now you see my problem, I have a Idea, Make a Feature where you cant place towers on the wrong spaces and also cant place towers to take up more than 1 place. If You do, It will say "You cant place a tower here, There is no Room." This will Help Tons of Players That face this problem. If you face this problem, I'm with you.





    Note: This is my Second thread, Sorry If this is a Bad thread But I hope you like my Idea!

    This happens to me, there are players who enter the game only to put "useless" towers without upgrading them, and that is a bit annoying. it would be better if the players could put the towers anywhere, but if they were placed in a place that wasted space, the other players could remove the towers

    i hate peolpe than put a archer tower using 4 slots,
    and another problem is than the people without paths are useless, made users be able to select a path in the towers of players without any path

    That I think is also a great Idea, I'm with you on the 4 spaces no paths or bad path. That always happens with Zeus tower when they place it.

    I agree, it's very annoying when players place towers not on the right spot.

    Please note this is all my opinion and nothing I say here means it will happen!

    Unfortunately, this could heavily be used to troll, or abuse it. If the player leaves you can remove the tower, so that is the best way to have that ability, in my opinion.

    As for this idea, I feel like having that security to know that players can not place a 3x3 in a 5x5 square etc. would be nice, but could get a bit annoying for those that do that genuinely to help fight or don't have proper towers. Instead of dictating where they can place towers, I feel like it could be best to have a GUI (or a pop up somewhere) saying something along the lines of:

    Are you sure you want to place (enter tower size here) on (enter space size here). If you do this intentionally, you could be at risk of being banned for trolling.
    Yes or No


    While people could click past the GUI prompt, it would hopefully get annoying enough that they place tower properly. It also provides them with a bit of a warning about the rules that are in place.

    All that to be said, having a snap to place build style for the towers or a warning GUI would be the best way to handle it, but since I don't play TD very much, I really am not 100% positive I am the best to give opinions on this.

    This Could be a replacement plan if my plan cant work, if this is added, It should at least reduce the misplacement of towers.

    Hes speaking spanish...

    Spanish is the second biggest language in the world, and cubecraft has a rather large spanish community.

    Therefore its acceptable that hes speaking spanish, and should not be considered a “strange language”.

    Translation of his message: The defense of the tower and I usually make the same mistakes of placing the towers where it is not even what we want but we do not know very well the theme of the game

    Sorry for offending his language but I didnt know what he was speaking and it looked strange. But its okay for him, He just needs to learn how to play.
