Possible fix: Beds can only work within a towny plot.
This would make beds be used more for a home recall so wouldn't be as abusable. Like you couldn't just bring your bed into a build site outside of your town so you can go suicidal crazy. You wouldn't be able to just carry a bed with you wherever you go to use as a mobile spawn point.. only as a home base spawn. Unless you want to build an outpost claimed with towny, but then you still have to pay up the plot fee.
Would also give a lil more reason to want to join a town. Would make town hotels more than something pretty to look at.
Could make beds usable without being so easily abused and without taking away from the "survival aspect" as much.
I was thinking of something where you pay $1000 to set a spawn point, and as long as there is a bed there, you will spawn there.If there isn't a bed there, you don't spawn there.
Exactly, I got to level 35 and hadn't died once on the server since it began. But earlier today on my trip to spawn I fell into a hidden ravine and it killed me instantly. Just the slightest misstep can kill you a helluva lot quicker than any mob can.and not making noobish mistakes
