Wait; What does this mean for the housemancy spell that lets you send notes?

I give it 3 months before there's a forum topic about how horrible the plugin is. We had almost the same exact plugin in Anthos and it was met with much excitement only for it to become a huge hassle and people just ended up using Skype (throwback) to send stuff anyways until it was removed. 

 

Still, I hope I'm proven wrong and this works out! The work by the Tech Team is always appreciated c:

Very hyped for the new letter types. If there's a physical bird flying though, that's gonna suck for lag. Can't wait for my bird summons for a medic to be shot down though. I do adore the fact that there's a time depending on how close a person is. Very poggers, thank you techteam. You're doing amazin'

They mentioned in the post that /msg while OOC is still going to be permitted for given magics. I guess that druids passing messages through passive communion, and the housemagery spells for sending letters will still be permitted by these means. Especially because magic takes time and emotes to send so it was never the active means of how one metagamed sending "birds" to begin with.

Its mentioned in

Roleplay rules:

In-game private messages (/msg) are considered out-of-character (except where explicitly permitted for magic/lore). To send messages via birds, you may write and sign a message on paper with /notes and send it from an aviary with /aviary.

 Hello,

So are birds in flight represented with a parrot or what?

 

Also, if the birds have to physically fly all the way over to their destination,

Birds are represented by a parrot yes, but they disappear after some time, this is due to limitations of minecraft (such as chunks having to be loaded for entities to move). As such, you can't camp between two aviaries and snipe them all. The birds also go in a random direction, since the other player can receive a note in any aviary, not a specific one.

Whilst a great plugin, no letterboxes? 

Maybe later, first it's important to have the basics meet, and only then do we improve and add onto it.

Does a bird *have* to be represented by an actual bird? For example, could a druid use their animal companion (like a cat or lizard) to send a letter, or can a Naztherak use a Zevn imp (tiny demon goblins)?

Shooting down flying cats seems interesting. I only did the plugin, but for what is allowed to roleplay them as, you'll have to confirm with moderation.

You get a message saying your bird was killed, and another message is sent to everyone around when a bird is killed.

You can think of them as flying rats if you want.

I've made a few checks for that. The bird disappears after a while, and someone can only send one bird every 2-5 mins. Because of all those, i don't think there will be much of a problem with lag. If there is, I'll have to change stuff again to make it better.

I don't remember this plugin, we didn't even have parrots in LOTC back then. Heck, I made another plugin of aviary in one of the later maps, and that used a flying chicken, but that was canned because of a minecraft update that broke it immediately.

If there is feedback about how bad it is, I'm here to take the blame (only about the plugin!).
