    Whenever you die you get spawn protection which lasts for a bit more than you’d expect. This can be unfair if you or another person spawned next to someone since you or the other player can just bulldoze or shoot them without you getting hurt because of that spawn protection. I’d recommend that you can’t deal any damage towards another player as long as that spawn protection you have disappears. For this to work with bows, your items will be removed until your protection is gone.

    Edit: Removed spawn in unpopulated areas
    Items are removed from inventory until spawn protection is gone

    I agree with your suggestion.

    Personally, I also dislike it when someone, who just respawned, appears near me and hits me. I find it unfair because I couldn't hit them while they can hit me.

    So I think it's right if the players respawn far from the others.

    However, what if the player with spawn protection use their bow or their compass to hit the other players even though they are far away? It wouldn't matter, since they will just shoot or teleport to attack the other players.

    It is just my opinion though. Feel free to correct me if I said something wrong or you don't disagree on what I think.

    Overall, it is a really good idea. I hope it gets considered and gets added to the server. It is really helpful and can reduce the inequality between the two sets of players mentioned above. Good job! I am looking forward to see this feature soon in the near future!

    Then it would be best you spawn with nothing and then get your items back when your spawn protection disappears.

    Indeed. That's also a great idea! I agree with it! That would totally solve the problem. Nice one!

    It might be a good addition, but it would need to be incredibly short. Part of the fun in oitc is the chaos.

    yess agreed!

    I cant tell you how many times i've been killed because a person had spawn prot and all I could do was run <('o'<)

    I think the whole, spawning in a less crowded area thing, would be a bit more complicated, so I think we should just have a much shorter respawn prot time. Maybe 2 seconds so you have enough time to run but won't have time to just kill someone without spawn prot as easily. Same goes the opposite way; you wont get immediately spawn killed!

    The protection isn’t removed just you doing damage while you have it is removed.
    I agree.

    I agree maybe when the player spawns and doesn't move that will give them 6 seconds spawn protection although if the player moves quite quickly then the protection is gone.

    Sounds interesting but you’ll have less time to find a safe spot and probably get shot at or sliced afterwards.
