I'm not insulting you guys or anything. I appreciate the game you made, but it's missing something huge... it's community.

 

You guys have 5,000,000 downloads on Google play.

5,000,000 players.

Less than 10 active players on the forums.

About 150 people actively using Discord for Planet of Cubes.

5,000,000:150

That's a huge difference.

0.003% percent of the total players of PoC from 2016-2019 are part of the active community.

 

Players join the game and stay in spawn for all eternity because they're too afraid to leave or because they have no idea what to do.

I have 3 suggestions to fix this.

1. Advertise the PoC Forums and an official PoC Discord Server on the Planet of Cubes menu screen and in-game.

2. Give a coin reward to people who visit the PoC Forums.

3. Change the Planet of Cubes forum's name to Planetcraft, it would make it easier to find.

3. Add a global chat to Planet of Cubes that can be used by any player at all times, from anywhere on PoC. Maybe add 2, one for Survival Multiplayer, and one for Creative. People could use this chat to make friends, trade items, and so on.

 

 

 

"From soon soon time we are trying to make more powerfull community and make this game much better. "

^ You said it yourself. You are aware of the state of the game. It is up to you and the developers to fix it.

How got this Post already 518 reads?! But yea i agree with you! They should start to do votings what we want first in the Game maybe do voting like which of this 3 things you want first in the next Update?  Example:1.Mesa Redsand Biome 2.New Interesting Main Spawn 3. New Mobs

And than the most voting thing get added first into the Game idk than the developers can see what is more important for us

Andre-YT, Priority should be to establish a legitimate community before working on things like voting, mobs, spawn, etc.

Andre-YT, just in my opinion

Btw, some players could have made multiple accounts or new accounts when they deleted the game but that many players, that's a big oof for the Admins, they couldn't make them stay in the game that long because of their lack of updates, that's probably why they have bad ratings

EnderDaBestNingen, I read alot of the reviews, most of the negative ones are because of bugs or unfair game mechanics.

I agree A LOT! It's very true most of the cummnunity are unactive and are noobs. I'd even rather prefer unactive pros or veterans atleast instead of 8yr olds who just roleplay in spawn all day. I used to play this game but stoped after IRL problems but If that's not the only thing that mkaes me not want to play planet craft anymore its mostly just the fact that everyone their now are boring maybe its just me but people don't even have interesting conversations in chat anymore or aything on topic its all just roleplaying and repeating old clan drama. I used to have a lot of good freinds on this game who were very active and we always had fun together but now I only have one and he is also thinking about quitting. All the freinds I have now are either never online anymore or just ask for teleports or harm arrows now, It makes me feel like a gas station ATM. 

  If there is anything they need to do it really is work on the cummunity and find out ways to get more people to cooperate and explore out of spawn instead of just walk around in spawn and waving at anyone with a vauable in their hand to try and ask for it. They most likely quit the next day or come back again to do the same thing untill they get bored and quit again. Its probably been a atleast a month since ive played in game but I check out the forums everyday just in case and I have noticed how much the activity is increasing at some times its just 1 post for days straight. I stopped posting much because I felt the percentage of post that were actually active were only mine for some time and that I was either too chatty or dedicated to this game and needed to slow down on the post.

I barely see anything interesting now its mostly just about how empty the cummunity has become. And I always see the list at the bottom of the screen saying " Welcome our newest members", but I never actually see any of them or Anyone new post or reply to anything! Are they bots or something how do so many days of welcoming newest members pass but only the same people post or write anything? I know they aren't just the same people over and over agian because I see several different names with personallity but they kida just pointlessly join and do nothing. Maybe their also little kids who don't know how to type and just like looking around but then how would they make the account and why would they even care? All the post nowdays are about bugs or asking for new features nothing really exighting or interesting.

And The Lich is right they need to add some sort of way to get to the forums instead of having to serch it by ourselfs noone would all the sudden think "hmm I really love this game I should search up poc fourms to learn more about the game". Not many people know what a forum is or that this games site still has its old name instead of the actuall name planetcraft noone knows those specifics. I played since 2016 Im not that old of a player but it took me till the middle of 2018 too find this site! I can't imagine how many players actually would love being able to chat and interact with other active players or somewhat veterans and share their experience but they can't find this site. Theirb needs to be a link It should much more findable and visable. If anything I think it should have section in the game itself like that tip section so people can see discussions while still in the app. If that's too complicated just put a link with a little lable above it saying " Come Discuss here!" or something attractive like that.

I still havent lost hope for planetcraft I stay with games for a long time its hard for me to forget stuff I used to have a 3DS a long time ago back when I didn't even know years mean't something  I used to play this game called Cube creator that was also a minecraft like game It had 1 update one time but my 3ds broke and I got really sad I couldn't use it. I still really wanted to see what the udpate would have added and looked up planet craft on youtube monthly to see if it ever came. I watched a video I think last year and they said the update came but that it was going to be the last update for it because nintendo had stopped services for that comapny for no reason. I still sometimes search up cube creator even though they said they were done to see if they might update again or something. I'm a very persistent person and really love to refect or check up on memories and old experiences. even well after this game ends I will be checking out on it for years monthly to see how its doing. I don't lose hope easily.

Maybe their is still a chance they might find a way to get more active players or a better cummunity. I also don't like pressuring people especially developers,modereators and admins I know they work so hard and don't wan't them to begin to beleive were just beggars and spoiled people who get bored a lot. I want them to know we care aren't just here to overload them with questions or request. Thats why I try to ask the least amount of questions and not ask for unessecary or time consuming things. If I want to ask them something I say it in a form of a letter and try to address the issue as clearly,quickly and most importantly " Politely" as possible. To get a boss to listen to you your message must be worthwhile and stick out. It must not have Pleonasm and must be short sweet and to the point. If it is extra long then it must be thuroughly seperated and organized through paraghraphs. I try not to do countdowns so much because they tend to sound too ranty and would make them less likely to read it and mess with your reputation with them making them also less likely to read any of your post in the future. I try to add maybe the word sincerely or by or written by with my name next to it at the bottom of my important post nicely spaced so they remmeber who made the ost and get a better idea of who to listen to and who they may trust or understand more than others. I absulutlely hate when people just write negative post without offering any solutions. I love this ost post because it perfectly addresses the situation and gives a good thought on how to fix it they aren't just throwing a chore list at the admins they are properly trying to help the admins fix the problem. 

Of couse this reply I made is most likely a bit to large and is very little likely to be read by admins based how many paraghraphs are in here but sometimes you got to take risk good risk very risky risk just to get your thoughts out. I though tend to relate more to long worded discusions than 1 sentanced ones so I read a lot of large writtings and think of them more thoughfully than maybe smaller ones. Maybe this is just me Im not sure

Yours truely,

ALITTARY, I used to play Cube Creator 3D. Big John Games wasn't getting enough money, had low amount of developers and had trouble figuring out how to make the 1.2 Multiplayer Update. They updated the game but it only had local multiplayer.

Anyways, yeah. I don't want the admins to believe we are spoiled beggars either. I truly care about the game and it's potential, I respect the developer's progress and effort into the game, etc.

But some things need fixing. And this is one of them.

I agree, some things really need to be fixed or balanced.

Yeah the mobs are a bit to powerful they should them a bit maybe make their hits a heart less or make actually do SOUNDS when hitting you in other mini menus. Off maybe just make them 50% less commonly spawned In in spawn. Some good suggestions to pick from.

ALITTARY, Mobs should be limited to 1 spawn per 16x16 area every 30 seconds.

Or make it to that mobs can't spawn any closer than 16 blocks from the player(similar to how it is in MineCraft), allowing players to get some breathing room and prevent a mob from spawning at the block right next to you.

Oh dang, you're right. I thought that Pocadimin at least responded once at the very beginning but I guess not...

BlueTangs Rock3,Welp ... :/ I hope they have something planned potentially their may not be any kind of act on this situuation. It could just be us worrying too much but then again I see them reply a lot quicker on other post It could just the type of post this is that they wouldn't like to get invloved. Most games are like that they will help in direct situations or problems  or questions but stuff like this seems I guess to controversial for an admin or person working on the game. I guess I shouldn't really expect them to visit this post I don't know what they could say anyway other than encouragement to keep playing game. Off saying there working on it, But those would just default answers that people would likely get salty over and start getting annoyed. What could they say Food this?

ALITTARY,making a public discord server and adding a link to it on the game menu isn't a very hard or controversial thing to do .-.
