Although we know the server strives to not wipe unless required - As of late it's becoming sort of common place... I know that your tring to keep it as vanilla as possible - But with all the wipes - Maybe implementing the virtual backpack would take some of the stress from the players who've built up their resources and have to lose it time and time again. It's also got some drawbacks I know. But there is some comfort in knowing that no matter what happens - I still got what I got in there. Like a gun when really needed. From what I've heard about it - it's not a difficult mod and runs completely separate from the game or server. Something to look into.
