    I don't know what CCG are going to do about the EULA but a way to still make a profit from the server could be to Have a section on the website where you put in your plot Number then you download your plot as a .zip. This doesn't necessarily have to cost money it could just be free, I just think It could be a way to make profit yet avoid breaching the EULA.

    This will take some recoding of the Plotme Plugin & I'm not sure if it is possible but its just a suggestion.
    I think that there should be a command like /plotme download <off/on> that only the plot owner can do that determines whether the plot can be downloaded or not, obviously the default should be off. And plots should only be aloud to be downloaded once they are done (/p done).

    Please take this into consideration,

    I'd suggest that anyone can download a plot, so they can build off of those builds, but they still have to give credit. If they try to take all of it without giving credits, and the owner of that plot finds out, he/she can send proof that this was his/her main build and deserves credit.

    I like the idea of being able to choose wether or not your plot may be downloaded. I dont want people downloading my plot :3

    That's why there's the download toggling command.

    There would have to be terms of downloading I guess like give credit to original owner / Helpers, Do not post as your original content?

    Unfortunately I can't decide whether that breaks the EULA or not. The law is so "fluffy" and general yet black and white at the same time. For example one person could see this as not using Mojang's IP in anyway howver it could be argued that we are selling part of their game's code (as the structures were generated using a Minecraft client) so is it OK? It is so hard to tell but I am guessing it would be breaking the EULA.

    Ok then couldn't CCG do it for free cause I'm sure lots of people would want to down
    Plots, and I am pretty sure you would be one of the first servers to do it.

    Wait I have just read through the eula again, It basically says that you can sell stuff as long as it doesn't affect game-play and I don't see how downloading plots would?

    This pretty much covers the issue I think except we are not selling items? @johncoles
    I might and probably am wrong here so sorry if I am image.jpg

    I agree with your tweet. They only changed the EULA so that Realms would generate more money...

    Yep but what I don't understand is, people agree with the Eula because they think it will make playing on servers fairer, when it is just making running a minecraft server difficult because you are paying but not making any profit.

    People would still build on plots because they have access to worldedit and other people to chat to and build with, it would most likely increase gameplay rather than stop people playing

    because they could possibly just download an amazing build and lie and say it was theirs.


    i thought it was obvious :D

    This is about downloading a plot you built on the server to your computer, not downloading a plot to the server.
