I have an idea. A gem-based plot customisation system.
You would craft something very expensive, I don’t know, a “-gem- Plot Power Pack” or something. It’s made, obviously, out of one type of gem, and a lot of them, and you would put it onto a beacon. This would have several different effects.
First off, the beacon would change the actual beacon colour to be the gem’s, in-game and on the map. It would put wings of the gem in the beacon, for you to take, only once per beacon. They have infinite durability. You can request more at the beacon, but other players cannot get them in any way. They are only for you. You also get a Gem-Coloured Beacon Plotter (the blue one) that is shiny and looks like it’s made of gem. You could, with this, affect your plots to let you fly in them, giving you, well, flying in that beacon plot. You could fly there, and anyone with the new “Wing Permission” could too. This would allow for “secret” areas to fly to and from, and would allow players with a favourite gem to express themselves further.
