    Alright, here are some ideas for improvements on the parkour server:
    - Remove daily records and add All-Time records. The obvious hacking records can be removed or prevented.
    - Add milliseconds to final time, so records can be broken on the same second.
    - Parkours definitely need upgrades with beauty and creativity, it shouldn't be just jumps. Looks really ugly. I also suggest to remove the stupid maps like Tube. The extreme maps look fine.
    - Some long parkours should maybe have checkpoints.

    I like the idea of Checkpoints and some ideas on here make sense like milliseconds.

    But we shouldn't remove daily records completely... We could simply just add All-Time records..
    If we got rid of daily records... the All-Time records would be soo high and newcomers would not have a chance of catching up.

    Also, Parkour doesn't need 'beauty' is all based on skill.

    Milliseconds have to be hard to code.

    Yeah, I guess. I just think a parkour is incomplete if it doesn't have something unique.

    Spoke to rubik not so long ago, and he said he will be implementing a check point system. As for making the parkours look good, that's were the build team can help. We will take over the parkours adventure map section and make better quality builds. Already got 2 new adventure maps ready. Just need parkour to be more stable so we can add them. I don't think any parkours should be removed since that's personal preference

    Yeah, even though its kind of crappy, the longer maps will need them cause not many would be able to complete it then.

    why does everybody on here say that??
    Things on the server are really hard to code and they have paid off. why do you worry about the coding, it's all about making the server better. not worrying about coding all the time.

    I agree with you up to a certain extent. This server has many functions which had to be coded to work properly, but I'm assuming what most people mean by "hard to code" is that the time and energy spent coding isn't worth the reward. For example, imagine that Rubik coded a new plugin which allowed donors to right click on a baby pig with a stick, and it would turn into an adult. Though I'm quite sure its possible, the real question is, is it worth coding this into the game. If it took all of fifteen minutes, (and there was some obscure use for it) then I'm sure it wouldn't be a bigdeal. But if it took months to make this work, it wouldn't be a viable solution.
