I don't like it. I am constantly getting badgered by my girls to spawn them stuff they can find in creative and I resist it saying it breaks the gameplay. I will occasionally spawn stuff they can't find (like bones to train wolves), but in limited quantities and only if they have been behaving.
Now thats just me and my family though.
As for others flying, I don't really mind. I just need to be consistent for myself and my own family.

I see your point.
Flying though requires an entirely separate client side mod pack (Zombe is the one I use) and I figure as we have the survival server...what would it hurt? (just dont give them the mod! )
But you are right - they will see someone else doing it and they will cause you some grief from them I'm sure.....
I guess it comes down to whether people want to 'just build' or as you say maintain some rules.
Sticky one.

(BTW - the lad had a lot of fun playing with Agent99 on your server last night- - thanks for that!)

I seem to remember notch mentioning something about flying being implemented in a limited fashion. I don't remember if it was in 1.7 or 1.8 though.

yeah no worries. he is welcome anytime

btw, flying on our (my personal server - d.sol1.net) might be OK, as we can make different rules for different servers remember. I have already had a family fun night where my girls and a few relos all jumped into a fresh survival map and had to work together to survive.
Just like anything, if you make up a game, and say what the rules are at the start, its only fair if you continue them. Different game, different rules etc etc

I don't have any objections in Creative for those who want to fly.

We sent one of our friends flying without a mod.

It involved a long obsidian tube, a bunch of tnt, and one brave foolish soul.

Flying will be mentioned in the survey I am writing. The nature of the game and the players has changed a lot since we started as a Division. Hence, I will be asking everyone what their opinion is on various things, like flying. While I am happy for people to discuss this is this thread, I will mainly be looking at the survey results for guidance.

As for Notch, I think he may be intending to allow flying in the Creative *mode*, but not for Survival. We are presently running the survival mode for servers (since this is the only mode for multiplayer). Notch introduced code for multiplayer servers to stop irregular movement through client-based flying mods (server mods can get around this).

For now, I am not against flying on the TOG Creative server, as that is the direction I see it as going. But if the survey says otherwise to me, then we will have set up rules against it. However, no flying is presently allowed on the TOG Survival server, as that goes against the challenge aspect of the server, where even movement has a certain danger involved.
