    Hey guys, many people were thinking of /fly but not just in personal claims but all around. and you would NOT be able to use /fly in spawn or end. This would prevent flying outa combat in pvp at spawn. It would be really useful during raids and base building. I think that this would give the factions a new take into base building and raiding. Maybe, if hit during /fly you would not be able to use the command with in 30-1 mins of combat. But /fly would ONLY be open to overlords and up. Yet you may be asking wouldn't this be easier to find bases? Yes it would and it would be usefull because then the server will be constantly at a even economy and many factions would have the ability to try to get in the game instead of 2-3 factions ruling the server.

    Generally, people with high ranks are in the high factions, so really you're just making the higher factions MORE overpowered. -1

    Only in claims +1
    I'd say make it a custom enchant like the mining drill it's a rare chance lvl 30

    This idea has been flying around for a bit, +1. But only in faction claims.

    I can see how it would add a useful aspect to factions, but at the same time there would be a lot of "what ifs".

    The biggest one in my mind is what happens if someone is in their claim, flying, and patching walls and an enemy faction player walks onto their claim. Does that person fall? Does it give them a countdown to land somewhere safe?

    Also, factions would start camping alts near enemy bases to prevent them from using /fly.

    I disagree that it should only be the top ranks, really should be all or nobody, but then that also possibly puts the server into "custom enchant" territory.

    I also think that this would also push most people out of building in the over world. I've found countless bases (unraided) just by hopping in a boat and moving a couple thousand blocks. If people had fly it wouldn't be nearly as inconvenient to locate such bases. Of course all this is assuming /fly is enabled off your claim.

    My suggestion would be to enable /fly for the first week, similar to tnt being disabled, to give factions a chance to do the majority of their basework. Make it claims only.

    Of course all this is from the player side. I imagine from a coding side it would be quite hell to write. "Player can fly if no enemy is within x blocks, if player is on claim, if player has been out of combat for 60 seconds, if, if, if"

    Just use your client to fly, or maybe 1v1 Freddy, sure he'll send you up ;^)

    I don't play anything other than hcf but when I used to play factions I played on a server where donors had fly and I think you should only be able to use it in your own territory and being combat tagged takes you out of fly. If that is how it will be then +1 to adding it :)

    Yeah, let us make raiding even more dificult.
    if you pop a claim near a base and use your scematica and /fly you shouldn't be able to build your cannon in half the amount of time it would originaly take.
