    Hi there! I'm not sure if this has been suggested yet, but I would like to bring in the idea of being able to craft heads.

    For example, I want to decorate my island with some heads that look like ornaments for the upcoming holidays, but I'm unable to do that because we don't have the command for it. I'm not sure if it's for lag reasons or not. However, if that's the case, just like with signs and hoppers it could be warned to not use so many / have there be a max amount of heads that can be placed on an island. I just feel like having that option to decorate your island would be pretty neat :)

    Plus, if heads were brought into the server, maybe it would open up more shop opportunities since people would want to decorate their islands with it, too. Maybe it would be a part of certain ranks like /ec and /fly, I don't know.

    Anyways, I'm not sure if this had been removed in the past, but I would really like to see it on the server ^-^ Those are just my thoughts.

    No support, you already can get heads through mob arena just change your skin and if you win you have. 50% chance of winning your head,
    Many people would craft dp heads which can liaise more scamming

    Hi, sorry I was unaware you could win heads in mob arena. Do the heads you win transfer over to economy? And where is the mob arena? I never heard of the server having it :eek:
    Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

    Also I feel like only a limited amount of heads should be available for crafting.

    They don't transfer to eco, but if eco has /ma j you can win it there and win your own head.

    If craftable heads existed, the economy will break in a second.

    Oh well that's disappointing. I can't find a warp or portal to a mob arena in economy. :I
    And plus I wouldn't want to use my own head for decorating, since that can only go so far. I'd want to just place like smaller pumpkins, apples, or ornaments around my island or in my giant Christmas tree ;-;

    I support.
    Being able to craft certain heads will be great for the decoration of islands. Ofc this can exclude player heads. Mob arena is dead in some time zones so it’s not fair to expect people to change their skin and try win one. There is no way to win a head in economy.
    Crafting is a better option.

    I don't know, Neutral.

    We do have the mob arena to win your head or a nether star.

    Crafting certain heads as custom recipes would be great, heads like Rubik Cubes, Planets, Furniture, etc.

    Thank you for sharing :) And yeah that's what I mean, and especially since economy does not have mob arena (as far as I can tell), having that opportunity to craft only a select few would be nice ^-^

    Thanks for sharing! But like I said I do not think econ even has a mob arena, and if it is a dead zone like Krissy mention, then getting a head seems to be more work than it's worth, and it is only your own head.

    But yeah I agree with having the little furniture or food heads :p

    Support, but as said
    exclude player heads. (by the way Krissy, rate the original post, comment-only ratings are excellent but unfortunately get drowned out. Best is post-rating and a comment explaining said rating)

    Also, I'd appreciate if heads wouldn't be cheap. 3x3 wooden planks should not make a wooden plank head - instead they could possibly require an item of value surrounded by the intended block.

    I suppose the rarity can go anywhere from obtainable from kits or voter-chest to being in the legendary crate and having infinite uses.

    I prefer to comment as ratings mean nothing if the devs find the premise intriguing; they wouldn't ignore a low rated suggestion if they agree with it nor base their final verdict on a suggestion with many ratings. I will continue to comment and rate if I decide to.

    The suggestion is for economy so no mob arena, and you pretty much supported the main premise of the suggestion anyway xD
    If you try playing mob arena in a timezone where there are less than 100 players there will be a huge disadvantage to a lot of people as there is now. Thus the same will happen on economy if mob arena was added; certain timezones gain advantages based on the peak and lows each day.

    It is simpler to add heads as decorations for money (on both servers) and this could even open up opportunities for rare decorations that encourage spending of money. Heads can be worn too so it can act as a trophy. It could really help generate spending where the economy is now about hoarding.

    If this was suggested for both economy and skyblock, I'd no support. Heads have been a rarity on the skyblock server since the the beginning. I worry about what would happen to the heads from drop parties and epic/legendary crates if this was implemented. Some people would say nothing will happen because the rare heads will still remain 'rare heads', but I can see the addition of new heads drowning out the desire for the original drop party heads.

    If this were to be added, how would it be done? Would there be a head database plugin like other servers? Will the developers have to create many new crafting recipes for each individual heads?

    If it were up to me, I'd create a head database and make each head be worth a certain amount of grass each (or maybe even diamonds so that they can be more of use once again).

    I'm at a neutral stance at the moment.

    Thanks for your input! And like I mentioned before, I think the decoration aspect of little furniture, food, block, etc. heads have more value than a head that looks like the player. Plus, if only a select few are allowed to be made (and if they look like the stuff I mentioned above), then the drop party heads would still hold significance, especially since they are rare and look much different than what would be crafted. I've attached a jpg to show just as an example what kind of heads should be available to craft. :) Maybe some could only be crafted seasonally to increase rarity somehow, I don't know. All I know is that they would be great for decoration. :p

    As to how they would be made, if this gets enough support, I trust that the developers would choose what is best/easiest/most compatible with the server. ^-^

    I will support if they aren't player heads or drop heads maybe like a bread head like a blank head surrounded in bread or something like that would be cool to see some categories could be food, mob, Letters, and some seasonal heads, like how warp Halloween had many different heads that we hadn't seen before. i would also like to see this on regular sky block
