After seeing certain players create alt factions to deliberately abuse the loophole in the shopland plugin, we have decided to make a small adjustment and clarify what players can and cannot do. The shopland plugin is intended to reduce the amount of land hoarding we have seen in the past in V2.
First of all, the claim limit for shopland and outpost land will be INCREASED to 16, from the previous 12. Now there is no advantage to making two one-man factions to claim 16 chunks when you can just put 2 accounts in one faction.
Recall that you can use /shopland info to see how many of said chunks you have claimed, and /shopland map to see a derpy map of what is considered shopland/outpost land and what is not.
However, if you attempt to abuse these regulations in any way, you will risk punishment. For example, creating one faction to claim 16, then leaving with one account to claim another 8 is not only against the shopland limit, it is also abuse of Factions mechanics and is bannable. Anything else that goes against the purpose of this plugin may be judged on a case-by-case basis.
