    Hello there!

    Welcome to my Lucky Ideas thread! I’ll be showing you some ideas some friends and I have gathered over the past month. I’ve divided my thread into four parts: Loot, Kits, Achievements and Miscellaneous. In the loot part, I’ll show all my idea that have something to do with the drops of the lucky blocks. The kits part will show the ideas that have something to do with the addition/change of kits. The achievements will have things to do with achievements of the game, these can be for both solo- and team mode. And last up is miscellaneous, here I’ll bring you my ideas outside of the other categories!

    Let me know what you think of the ideas! All helpful feedback is welcome!

    Loot
    New loot

    Tracker wand
    A wand to track players.

    This wand will track players when being right clicked on. You might think that there is a compass, but that’s just a general network item, shared over multiple game, so why don’t they add a special wand that tracks down players with a wand, unique to Lucky Islands? Or why don’t they add a new thing to track down players? There would be more chance to get an item to track players because there are quite a lot of campers on Lucky Islands, hiding inside of their island.

    Custom boots

    Leather boots that will give you the speed or jump boost effect when equipped.

    This will be an item that gives you the speed I- or jump boost I effect when equipped. An enchantment glint would be visible. The boots will be green when they give the jump boost effect or blue when they give the speed effect. The boots must be leather boots because that would balance the effect on the boots. The boots must also be leather boots because that’s the only kind of boots that can be colored.

    Bingocard

    A custom card where you must collect certain items.

    This item will be a custom map where you will see some random items. The items can be obtained throughout the game. If an item has been obtained, there will be a green “V” over the item on your map. If you get three items in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal), you’ll get a reward. I’m not sure yet about the reward so please help me discuss this one. You don’t need all three of the items at the same time to gain a reward.

    [​IMG]

    Horserider

    A horse and saddle.

    This loot drop will contain a horse with one to five hearts and a saddle. The running speed won’t be faster than a player sprinting, but the horse can jump up to three blocks. The horse won’t be equipped with armor.

    Rock, paper, scissors
    A message will pop up in chat asking you to pick rock, paper or scissors.

    When the lucky block is opened, a message will be displayed in chat, asking you to pick rock, paper or scissors. If you win against the server, you’ll get a reward and a message in the chat saying, “You won!”. The reward could be regeneration II for five seconds. I’m not sure yet about a reward so please help me with this one.
    If you tie or lose, you’ll get nothing but a “You tied!” or “You lost!” in the chat.

    [​IMG]

    Position switch
    Switches position with a random player.

    When you open a lucky block and you get this thing, you’ll instantly switch position with a random player on the map. This could cause some weird situations. It would be interesting to see what happens in all sorts of situations.

    Instant TnT
    TnT that blows up instantly after being placed down.

    This loot item will give you a normal TnT block with an enchantment glint. When you place down the TnT as a regular block, it will blow up instantly, blowing up the terrain and dealing damage to everything around it. This item will be dropped with 1-3 items in one loot drop.

    Super pickaxe
    Mine blocks instantly with this pickaxe.

    This item is a golden pickaxe with a very high enchantment level (1337). The pickaxe has one durability left. The pickaxe also contains a second enchantment, unbreaking, with level XV. This way, the amount of uses left on the pickaxe will be randomized.

    Mystery bow
    An equal chance to shoot with every bow.

    If you get this item, you’ll get a “Mystery bow”. It’s a bow which charges up a little bit (sped up in the animation below) and then will turn into one of the five special Lucky Islands bows. When you’ve used this random bow, so when you released the right button, the bow will turn into an empty mystery bow again and will have to charge up with an equal speed again.

    [​IMG]

    Rainbow
    A rainbow with some loot at the ends of it.

    This build will build itself per layer, and will contain a golden block at the end of the rainbow. The other side, one block under the ground if there is ground, will also contain a gold block.

    [​IMG]

    Anvil
    Watch out for this anvil dropping down!

    This loot item will drop an anvil from ten blocks high on the spot where the lucky block was broken. If there are any other block ten blocks above the location of the lucky block, they will disappear (turn into air). The anvil only has a couple of uses.

    Desert
    A sandy place with a cactus.

    This little creation is harmless… or is it? It will spawn with eight sand blocks and a cactus in the middle. All the blocks are breakable.

    [​IMG]

    Noteblock
    A noteblock playing a tune that goes higher and higher until it hits the highest tune and then gives you a reward.

    This block will spawn and start ticking up, playing each note with the particle coming out of the noteblock. When the player messes with the noteblock by right- or left clicking it, the noteblock will stop and not do anything anymore. When the player waits for the final note, they will get a little reward. I’m not sure yet about the reward and was thinking about a jump boost I effect.

    Redshroom
    An exploding redstone cow, didn’t we need more redstone?

    This loot is a mooshroom that spawns and will launch up and drop redstone. When it explodes after a couple of seconds, it drops even more redstone like a pinata. It has a custom explosion particle effect. The mooshroom-redstone idea is being suggested here because there is little to no redstone on most Lucky Islands maps, which makes some traps hard to make, especially the ones with pistons.

    [​IMG]

    Jukebox
    A jukebox playing custom music, isn’t that a big party?

    This block will spawn as a single jukebox. On top of the jukebox, you’ll see a note particle ever second. The jukebox won’t play music discs since these are used for the wands but will play a custom song. (like the MinerWare minigame where you need to sit in a chair when the music stops.) To stop the music, you must break the jukebox. If the jukebox is placed down again, the music will start again.

    Map
    This map looks interesting.

    An item frame containing an unexplored map. This way it’s easier to see the entire map and maybe notice new places you haven’t seen before. You can take the map with you.

    Flower
    A lovely flower in a pot.

    This loot item contains a flowerpot with a random flower in it, to make your day prettier! The flowerpot will only contain flower types.

    Brewing stand
    A way to brew your own potions.

    This loot item will spawn in a brewing stand. In the brewing stand, you’ll find one to three random potions, always being tier one. You can take out the potions and brew your own ones or improve the ones that were in the brewing stand already.

    Water carrot
    Since when did water come from carrots.

    This item will be an item that you will get one of per loot block. When you right click the carrot, it will fly like a snowball would fly and on impact, would create a water source. It acts like the Hot Potato but instead of exploding, it drops a water source on impact.

    Changes to existing loot

    Ore vein
    This already existing loot item will give you an iron pickaxe, and will spread out some random ores, variating between iron, gold and diamond ores, into a spike that originally was four blocks away from the lucky block.
    My suggestion: Add some lapis ore into the mix of ores as well. Lapis ore can be used to enchant your items. It would be the best to replace some of the diamond ores with lapis ores because there do spawn a lot of diamond ores when you get this loot. Adding lapis to enchant your stuff doesn’t necessarily make it too OP because if the lapis gets replaced with diamonds, you won’t get as much diamonds, so you won’t be able to make as much diamond armor/tools/weapons as before.

    Normal bow + 2x6 tipped arrows
    If you get this drop, you’ll receive a normal, unenchanted bow with six arrows that have the glowing effect when they hit an entity and six arrows that have the slowness effect when they hit an entity.
    My suggestion: Mix more different types of arrow effects into those two existing arrow effects. You would still get those different types of tipped arrows in pairs of six. So, it could be possible that you get six tipped arrows with the weakness effect and six tipped arrows with the mining fatigue effect.

    Potion kit change
    The potion kit as it is now has two poison potions. One potion with a durability of 0:45 seconds and the other potion with a durability of 0:20 seconds. It would be a lot better if one of the two poison potions get replaced with another kind of potion. What about a drinkable instant health I potion?


    Kits

    Horseman
    Riding your horse will impress every enemy you have!
    Items:

    -Horse
    -Saddle

    Price: 500 points
    Description: When equipped, this kit will give you a horse with three to five hearts. The horse can jump three blocks high, but the running speed of the horse is not faster than a player sprinting. The horse will not have any armor equipped. The horse is already wearing the saddle.

    Leprechaun
    Aren’t you lucky enough?
    Items:

    -0:30 seconds of the luck II effect.

    Price: 300 points
    Description: This kit will give you 0:30 seconds of luck II. Luck II will guarantee you that your loot will be positive. This can be very useful when the “Normal” or “Crazy” game modifier are selected. But even when “Blessed” is selected it might be useful because some items are still neutral. Those ones will be excluded when you have the luck II effect applied.

    Redstone master
    Be ‘that one redstone guy’ yourself!
    Items:

    -10x redstone dust
    -2x redstone repeater
    -1x redstone comparator
    -1x sticky piston
    -1x piston
    -1x lever
    -1x button

    Price: 400 points
    Description: With this kit, you’ll have the possibility to trap people way easier! As it is right now, there isn’t a lot of choice when it comes to trapping. To get pistons, you’ll need to craft them up, which takes items like redstone, which isn’t available on every map.

    Fisherman
    Doesn’t this kit sound a little bit fishy?
    Items:

    -Fishing rod (Luck of the sea II, Lure I)
    -Water bucket

    Price: 300 points
    Description: Have you ever wanted to fish but you didn’t want to play Skywars? Well this is the perfect kit! You could find some awesome stuff like name tags or leather. This kit is also useful to obtain a rod on 1.8 Lucky Islands to make fighting a little bit easier.

    Brew master
    Brew up your special drinks to become even better!
    Items:

    -Brewing stand
    -1x Blaze powder
    -1x Redstone dust
    -1x Glowstone dust
    -1x Rabbit foot
    -1x Glistering melon
    -1x Spider eye
    -1x Ghast tear
    -1x Magma cream
    -1x Gunpowder

    Price: 700 points
    Description: Don’t you feel like fighting? This kit might be the perfect one for you! You can brew a wide variety of potions with this kit, positive or negative effects.

    Bingo master
    Scream bingo when you got a row!
    Items:

    -Bingo card:
    [​IMG]
    Price: 500 points
    Description: This item will be a custom map where you will see some random items. The items can be obtained throughout the game. If an item has been obtained, there will be a green “V” over the item on your map. If you get three items in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal), you’ll get a reward. I’m not sure yet about the reward so please help me discuss this one. You don’t need all three of the items at the same time.

    Miscellaneous

    Addition
    When you craft up a lead and attach it to a sitting pet that has a dead owner, the pet will become yours.

    Achievement change
    Change the Team Lucky Islands achievement “Crazy cat person” from “Get every type of cat in a game of Team Lucky Islands” to “Get every type of cat in a game with your entire team in a game of Team Lucky Islands”. I had loads of trouble trying to get this achievement, because it was so hard. It also is a team Lucky Islands achievement after all, so I don’t see why it shouldn’t be with your entire team.

    Achievement change
    Change the reward of the achievement in solo and team Lucky Islands where you have to win 10.000 games of Lucky Islands from five cubelets to five uber cubelets. This achievement is such a big achievement that it is probably worth giving such a big reward. I don’t feel like five cubelets are a lot of cubelets. So why not five uber cubelets? Getting 10.000 wins is something not a lot of players are able to do after all.

    Cat nerf
    Cats are a type of pet in Lucky Islands. They run faster than a player can sprint and have a very small hitbox. I feel like they should get some kind of nerf. Maybe their health can be brought down, or their speed can be cut down.

    Lucky blocks color option
    With this option, you’ll be able to pick your own color of lucky blocks. It would be a little setting on the Lucky Islands NPC.

    This thread is completely lovely.
    I think a Spawn Egg would be easier because you can place it whenever you want.
    I totally like all of these suggestions!

    Amazing thread!
    Can it be an xp or point reward or do you want it to be an item?

    The pets from the pet kit also spawn instantly, so I thought it would fit in better like this, but that is also totally fine for me!
    WHAT IS A SODA EMOJI .-.-.
    But thanks ;p
    It would be better to be an item/effect/entity or something in those lines

    I like the fact that you posted this on my birthday.

    On topic, I honestly have no clue how someone can put so much into one thread, you already told comezonda that you put a lot of work into this, but I still don't know how you did it. This is 10 times the amount of new features being added in an average Lucky Islands Update. Almost all of them, are well thought, unique, funny and usefull additions to make lucky islands an even more chaotic, hilarious and luck-based game. I have only one question, what about the Position Switch in team mode? I mean in solo it's clear, you just swap with a player of the opposite team, but in team mode it will lead into an unfair fight. Maybe it should be a wand that can be triggered whenever you like (one use only), it will still be chaotic, but at least you have some preparation. I honestly feel a bit ashamed that there hasn't been any response from the staff to what might be one of the best Lucky Islands suggestion threads ever. You really impressed me, I hope all of them get added, someday! Have a cookie +1

    If you suggest how, I'll listen
    It really does, I've noticed a huge lack of comments from any staff member, I tagged Camezonda, hoping he would see it soon. I'll give him the time he needs.


    Well, having some free nights helps, because obviously, this wasn't created in one sitting
    I really appreciate the feedback! Thanks!
    Oh, I didn't think the team mode through. Well, like you said, it could be an item (I wouldn't like a one time use wand, wands are made to be infinite) that can be used with right clicking. Or maybe this could be a solo feature only? The first ever of its kind. I'm not quite sure.
    Thank you again so much for your response! Like I said above, I have noticed the lack of response from any staff member! Thank you for the cookie ^-^

    Hello, @Camezonda

    This thread died out but I still feel like it’s relevant to the server right now. You have been tagged before but might have missed it, so here is another tag. This thread has some great ideas and, looking at the reactions, is loved by the community. It would be appreciated if you leave your thoughts on it since you’re responsible for the game aspect of the server. (At least that’s what I’ve been told.)
    Thank you for your time, since this is a big thread.

    Sincerely,
    SanCookie

    Hey! I saw the first tag :D I saw this post and saved it in my emails. When the time comes for an update, I will refer back to the thread and look for any good ideas. Just to note, if I don't reply, it doesn't mean I've ignored it :)

    damn this is just... AMAZING!
    they need to add it, it will make lucky islands so much more fun!
    But i think the leprechaun kit is useless.

    Thank you for your reply! Now it’s clear to me, but I wasn’t sure if you saw it in the first place because there was no indication that you saw it. But thank you for making that clear!

    Thank you for the feedback!
    It might be useless on a map with only a few lucky blocks, but it could be more effective than you think on some maps! Armor, swords, ore veins, ... are all considered “positive loot”.

    I read about every single point of your suggestion and I really love it! This makes Lucky Island an even more unique game. Right now LI feels more like skywars with lucky blocks, but by adding new lucky/unlucky blocks and different events (like the bingo card) the game would be more unique and surprising. The more different items/events you can get, the more exciting it is to play!
