Suggestion "Purple Coin" Permanent Challenge

    Hi,

    You know the purple coin event? Wanted to suggest an idea for a variant of that, except as a permanent challenge available on the server (like hexa). Where there's a "purple coin" or whatever name fits hidden somewhere on each map, and players have to find them. Except instead of disappearing once someone finds it, it stays there. So the end goal changes from collecting the most coins to being the first to find the coin on every single map.

    I think this could be a fun challenge to work on, especially for older players who have beaten most of the existing stuff. Would also allow more cruel coin placements, and a way to make the game last longer. Thoughts?

  2. This sounds like fun :D. It would be a good idea to keep doing this because people would be more excited when new maps are made so they could look for the purple coin in that map.

    It might be hard for the event creator to hide that many coins. Could the map creator put coins in there map because they would know where secret places are and the event creator won't have to put a coin in every map.

    Maybe not 'first to find the coin' because only one player can ever have that. Maybe randomize the coin between a few locations and have it be 'fastest to find the coin'

    The main overall problem with such a "hide the coin" thing is how exceptionally hard I know how to hide them. For maximum difficulty this is what rman does:
    1. He hides a color head in 6 different areas for each of the main rainbow colours.
    2. rman scripts it so you have to run from red to orange in a short amount of time.
    3. Scripted so only the player that actually clicks the red coin continues further. (Scoreboard Tags)
    4. Scripted so the coins after red are only shown for 3-5 seconds to the time limit of reaching it.
    5. Fail once in the sequence and the entire thing resets for the next player.
    6. Only clicking the Purple Coin at the end of the whole thing awards the player.

    So all in all, unless you aspire for something utterly insane a Purple Coining challenge might not be the best.
    [Also adding a challenge like this defeats the whole purpose of the Purple Coin Event]
