    Default Changing of items with clear relations to gambling, their names and functions.

    Edit: The word 'removal' in the title seems too strong of a word. Here we go, a new title : Changing of items with clear relations to gambling, their names and functions.

    The main aim would be to make the opening of a casino harder, removing casinos entirely would be a nice dream.

    Note: All items that rely on RNG is capable of being used in a casino, therefore efforts in this thread will be focused on items that immediately remind people of the idea of gambling/casino.

    It will help with the reduction casinos in the long run. If you want to tackle a problem, attack it at its roots. ( ok mabye not at its roots since RNG is too deeply Imbedded in this game. So let's start with superficial problems then)

    Suggestions:

    . Prevent the roulette wheel from spinning and providing numbers ( edit : mabye just prevent numbers from showing up)

    . Change the name of the item "Gambler's Visor" (so far no one seems to have a problem with this suggestion)

    . Remove the functions of a slot machine

    . Change the name of the 'Vegas pack' ( Las Vegas is well known as a place for gambling)


    These are just some of the changes that could be made. Leave your suggestions below and I'll update the list.

    Leaving the items as it is, is just asking for trouble.
    Even if they remove all this, players still find a way to gamble.

    Default Just no

    This issue has been talked about multiple times but usually targeted through the casino wheel. People made a casino game out of chandeliers, so shall we remove all farmable? Honestly it would just be pointless

    Inherently you don't know the entire ins and outs of present-day casinos (I'd advise you study your subject matter before you start suggestion solutions to it, aka, check yourself before you wreck yourself). Casinso work on the basis of any form of RNG. Removing roulette wheel's functions (and abundantly used gambling tools like dice blocks) would not solve the issue, nor greatly affect it. There are alternatives that some casinos use such as using the drop rates of gems for gambling, or SSU, or the drops of a dirt tree, to name a few.

    This has been suggested so many times, would you think they would've done this by now to prevent casinos if it even had an impact?

    Let us also remove the drop function to put an end to drop games, remove broadcasts to put an end to phishing sites, and remove DLs so people can't sell them for money.

    Good Idea!
    While you're remove gems to prevent buy gems scam

    Remove Safe Vault since you can still break a world lock in a world with safe vault

    Remove vending machine since people can still fake text with typing.

    In all seriousness though

    Make it so Gems count as "Floating Items" like in growscan. So one has to place blocks to sell it. This prevent world trade scams at least.

    Make it so Safe Vault placed down with password would make the World Lock Unbreakable. (A current way of usage for this currently I think(Did not test) is to use a guild lock.) Also make the world name unchangable if one of the world has Safe Vault. So hackers can't bypass it.

    In a world of vending machine where the price heavily differs from original, 1 more additional alert would pop up when purchasing. Also make it so in a world where there are multiple reports of vend scam from a x level of players or something, all vending and vending machines thats placed or to be placed would have an additional alert for the next 10 minutes or so. (Make it so players report on this don't duplicate incase bot abuse etc)

    I only thought of this within a few minutes, now imagine how many more to be fixed?

    Chill man, let them fix when they can.

    Any kind of RNG is technically a gamble.
