Guess it’s fair to joke about it, but if made on live, and if you actually start killing people who come to visit your build with lava (giving them the death penalty debuff), you might get reports, and I don’t know what stance devs like @james will take on that front.
I mean, personally, I would never do something like that. It’d be some high-level doucherie. I’d even say that it’s a branch of griefing, it adds toxicity to the game. On other games, you could get banned for that. On Creativerse, as someone who used to be an admin on public servers, I can tell you that you had to advertise with signs like “if you go that way, risks of death!” to do that, otherwise, ban hammer to the face!
The reality is I don’t know any normal person in this game that would intentionally do that. Also, honestly, you can already trick people and kill them now without lava.
From what I have seen and gleaned the Devs stance is you can’t protect everyone and there just needs to be a balance in accepting people might do things like this. They have managed to put good controls around these parts of the game and deserve the credit. They just work that balance as best as they can.
We cannot protect ourself from every jerk that might play this game and shouldn’t stop other people from enjoying parts of the game just because of 1 possible jerk. It isn’t right.
I would agree setting it up to do intentionally would be griefing and should be penalized. What I did find on closer examination is you can still see the lave through a closed door if you look at the hing side. There is a gap and you can just see through. Players might miss it but maybe if they know it is there it will prevent some accidents.
