Lower Price for Horizontal Obsidian Gen Bucket

Discussion in 'Suggestions' started by mhow, Aug 13, 2019.


Do you feel the price for a Horizontal Obsidian Gen should be lowered?

  1. Yes

  2. No

    A horizontal obsidian generates 10 blocks of obsidian per use and I feel this is not enough to justify the outrageous price of $12,500 per use. The cost to generate a 20x20 area (a little over 1 chunk) would cost $500,000 (20 gen bucket uses). I suggest to lower the price to make generating horizontal obsidian a viable option. $12,500 for 10 obsidian is just ridiculous and makes the obsidian gen bucket practically useless.

    It's worth noting that this is only getting upvoted by the faction who suggested it o_O
    I believe the prices are fine and fair.

    Just buy a vertical gen for much cheaper, place it at sky limit, and then put in some effort to mine it from sky to bedrock :)
    Promise, it’ll save you at least 80% :D

    I don't really see anything wrong with that and also half the yes votes are done by people in different factions so I don't really see why it's worth noting.

    I would consider this if there wasn't a 50/50 chance of the gen stopping half way down.

    In my experience with using the gens if you have somebody following the gen down it always fully gens

    Worked for me \o/ also do it at times when the tps is stable, as i tried to gen in a wall with 18 tps and much of it did fuck up, but that's to be expected

    We tried that with an admin watching, it didn't work.

    Either way since the horizontal costs 1.25k per obsidian and the vertical gen costs $24.50 per obsidian [if genned from Y 255] I believe the prices should be equalled out between the horizontal and vertical gen. either the vertical gen rises in price or the horizontal lowers in price I don't care which, the prices just don't make too much sense to me unless I'm missing out on something

    I've lowered the price to $5850 (1.5x the cost of obsidian in /shop to compensate for the greater effort for placing horizontally)
