tl;dr

 

Hey guys I thought to myself, Minehut still hasn't added a restart button. Then I thought they still haven't added __insert suggestion here__. So I thought I'd make a list of frequently suggested features or features that've been requested, and given the ok but never added. Here we go.

 

Restart Button

Pretty well requested over time. It's been wanted here, there, around the corner, but at the end of the day, We're buttonless.

- Don't say that this is "lazy" or "dumb" or "stupid". This can prevent issues that can arise when trying to start your server while its stopping.

 

Fixing world generation

You know, you'd expect to be able to use custom presets, or even the built in world presets at minimum.

If you don't think its broken, great! You're really smart. No you're not--https://vimeo.com/348837066

 

Add more 'Items Per Page' Settings

This one has me baffled on why we couldn't have this yet, seeing as where all it does it give you a higher setting on the display items dropdown menu in the plugin list. We have 10, 25, 50. Add 100, or better yet, all. Some people prefer installing all of their plugins at once. Not going through pages for tens of minutes.

 

Changing your server version + plugin versions

It'll be a bit of work, but in the end, you're just giving us more server customability. Lots of people I know stay away from Minehut because you can't customize your server fully. People would enjoy being able to truly change the version of their server. Not install protocol support or another protocol hack. Plugin versions would also be useful too, because in the case that a plugin breaks on update (Skript, 7/22/19), we could use a lower version ourselves, not be at the mercy of the administrators.

 

Light theme

It's really not that hard. The forums have a light and a dark theme. Not sure why the panel can't. 

 

More than one instance of your panel at a time

We used to be able to have 2 or more tabs open, and be logged in to more than one account. Unsure why this was removed because it provided a safety window for people transferring server names to other accounts. Lots of snipers out there.

 

Server Icons (Both Minehut server list and the Minecraft server list)

We should be able to change the icon of our server in the Minecraft server list. Some people just don't like being stuck with the Minehut logo. It would also be pretty neat if we had purchasable icons in the dashboard to apply to our servers. I say purchasable because we'd have complete insanity in the server list if everyone could have an icon for free.

 

Co users

Lots of people share their private panel information containing some credentials because Minehut has yet to add co-users. 

 

Live console

Almost every other host has it, but Minehut. Would be a little neat to have live console, instead of having to navigate to our logs, latest.log, and then scroll all the way up to where we're at.

 

I wish I could just scream this one.

Getting unused server names

People have been searching for cool server names forever. Player 1 finds one. Then he finds out the server hasn't been used in 4 months. He'd like to use the server name because it's really cool. Thanks to Minehut, that inactive account will contain the server name probably forever since account owner no longer plays Minehut.

^ The system for this would either be automatic or have to be done manually be some sort of application of request to an admin. I personally think it should be automatic, but both methods have been suggested. After 5, 6, months of complete inactivity, the server names should be renamed to a random 4-10 length string. Definitely give everyone a heads up about this though. 

 

Renaming files

The only real issue here is file permissions. Deny editing permissions to files like server.properties, your plugins folder, etc. It seems again that other hosts are ahead of Minehut in this department.

 

Bedrock Support

Now personally I don't really care much about this one but its been suggested a few times and so I listed it here. It's pretty self explanatory, people want to be able to join Minehut with the bedrock version of Minecraft. 

 

More player slots / ram settings

Minehut is growing, we're needing more. Don't get confused here as I'm not suggesting buy more servers (Although it would help), I'm saying there should be more options when spending credits on player slots and ram. 

 

Remake the Join Random Server button

Don't you hate it when you actually try to join a random server and its whitelisted.

 

More plugin filters

In the plugins list, add more filters like "New" or "Premium".

 

Fix IPs

Lots of people have anti-alt scripts or ip-ban scripts which don't have much use when player's aren't actually on their IPs. Now, I know this is a security issue, so take a look at this dude's post. https://forums.minehut.com/topic/1842-fix-ips/ 

 

2FA

Two factor authentication would be great. Your developer leaked your panel credentials? Enable 2FA.

Checkout this dude's post https://forums.minehut.com/topic/1594-two-factor-authentication/

 

Improved file editor

The built in file editor is imo, garbage, You can't tab anything, which removes about half the scripters on Minehut from every using the built in file editor. At the very minimum use something like Notepad++. Or better yet, give us an option to choose between the default text editor, and something like vs-code.

* https://forums.minehut.com/topic/1872-better-file-editor/

 

Gifting credits

Self explanatory, people want to gift credits. Not transfer credits, buy credits for others. There's no issue in people exploiting the voting site and getting multiple votes a day on one account, because you aren't gifting free credits, you're buying credits, and they're going directly to the receiver's account. Right now, if people wanted to gift credits, they'd have to buy it on the user's panel, and that is unsafe for a number of reasons.

* https://forums.minehut.com/topic/1674-ability-to-purchase-credits-for-another-minehut-user/

 

Let us download more files

We've got hacked a couple of times, and people are just worried about their servers. Some people would like to backup a bit more then just their worlds.

* https://forums.minehut.com/topic/1320-make-this-happen/

 

Fix starting issues

People would be waiting for their servers to start for 5 minutes, then it would stop...

There's literally a meme. https://imgur.com/tehozbf

 

More donator perks

I understand its purely cosmetic and it helps Minehut out, but some people bought it because they thought it would benefit them. Even giving us half a gb more ram would be appreciated.

 

Plugin info

Have the plugin author and version be displayed somewhere in the plugin information.

* https://forums.minehut.com/topic/219-plugin-authors-version/

 

More file extensions

* https://forums.minehut.com/topic/248-pot-po-file-extensions/

 

 

I understand these are all at different levels of priority, but they all should get added in time. Some should already be here though.

 

If I missed something, feel free to comment it down below, and I'll add it to the list.

 

Please note that I am in no way trying to attack Minehut here, I am simply giving an effort to bring improvement to Minehut.

 

Don't just give these the ok and then never add them. Some of these seem really easy to implement. Like showing more items on a list...? How was that not added yet. Not even a feature just a little quality of life.

to all of this besides Getting unused server names. I personally think getting unused server names would be a bad update, everything else I really want!

Minehut could have such better servers in the server list, and they're just going to waste if no one can use them.

Lately Minehut could be way better. The list of ideas are great! I know Minehut in the past said some of theses ideas, but they never added them. I really think theses ideas you've listed should be added to Minehut. Minehut was working perfectly fine for me in the past days in 2016 . . .

I just wish people can just get along & just help each out and be kind to one and another.

Nice job compiling all of them, I definitely agree minehut needs to get on a lot of these. Also good job writing them in a way that made it quick to read but also easy to understand. I just submitted a suggestion on how minehut can improve its service to paid users, (https://forums.minehut.com/topic/3574-better-service-for-paid-servers/) - and I'd appreciate you checking it out and maybe adding it to your list as well.

Changing your server version + plugin versions

I don't see enough benefit to require adding these features.

Changing Plugin Versions:

  • A majority of users would not use this feature and if anything, it would only confuse the inexperienced users who might not know if the latest version is better compared to any specific version.
  • It would take a toll on our storage as we would need to store multiple versions of every plugin in our plugin list, not just 1 jar. I'm not sure if this is worth it compared to the benefits we would get from adding a feature like this (barely anything).

Changing Server Versions:

  • According to Minecraftservers.org, 70% of servers are running on Minecraft 1.13 or later. Only 7% of Minecraft servers are actually running on version 1.8.
  • People only want 1.8 because of the combat and 1.15 is going to revamp combat (coming soon). People might only want 1.12.2 because of the performance improvements (which Mojang said that 1.15 will also improve performance by a lot as well).
  • This would also make maintaining the plugin list much harder as we would need to maintain different lists for different plugins as well as keeping all those plugins up to date. 1.14 plugins doesn't work on 1.12.2/1.8 and the opposite is the same.
  • I'm not too sure if it's worth supporting older Minecraft versions if most of our users are already using the latest version as well as most Minecraft servers out there are using one of the newer versions of Minecraft.

Server Icons (Both Minehut server list and the Minecraft server list)

Minehut Server list:

  • Yes, this is something we are considering and we have had conversations about this in the past. 

Minecraft Server List:

  • Right now, you can upload a server-icon.png but it wouldn't show up because pinging your Minehut server IP is pinging our proxies and not the server itself. Adding a feature like this would require us making a custom fork of BungeeCord (our proxy) and making changes so the server icon is passed forward to the server ping. While it should be possible, I wouldn't exactly have an idea on if/when something like this would be added.

Co users

  • This is a feature we would like to add, but at the moment it's not something that we are working on or planning to start working on.

Getting unused server names

  • A user's server name should not be automatically changed unless someone specifically requests that name. Maybe we could have it so if someone wants a name someone has and the server hasn't started up in the past 4/6 months, it would send them an email. If they don't start the server within a week of that email being sent, it could let you claim the name afterwards. I think a system like this would be better and would give the owner a heads up before actually letting someone else take the name.

Add more 'Items Per Page' Settings

  • Yeah I don't see an issue with adding a "100" item. I'm completely against showing all the plugins at once though, that would most likely lag the panel as it would need to load all the plugins as well as make the page extremely long so I'm not too sure if anyone would actually use a feature like that. If people are trying to install plugins, they can just search for it instead of listing all the plugins on 1 page and trying to find it there.

+1 I would also like a /restart command to do that in game as well!

It would also be useful to have a restart schedule to automatically restart the server at certain points in the day if the server is up.
