Factions reset

Posted by Dieu3 months ago
Factions server was just reset and we're happy to announce some of the changes that should balance out the Factions server.

Factions Reset

Fireballs can now be used even if enemies are nearby, with that spawner drop rate was reduced from 90% to 70% which should prevent or at least penalize Factions that would raid their own spawners. Furthermore, lava and water can't be placed and won't flow 2 blocks around and above spawners, and of course, spawners can't be mined if enemies are nearby.

Chunks touching WorldBorder can't be overclaimed anymore and as usual, there's 7 days grace period in which overclaiming and explosions are disabled. Currently, ChunkRippers can't be used, this will be fixed after the next restart.

Useless items were removed from Crates and Envoy rewards and there were also many much-needed bugfixes and performance improvements (updated anti-phase, patched minecart/boat exploit, fixed nether portal handling, back, and logout location expiration, ...).

Update: You can now use ChunkRippers! :)

Survival reset

Survival reset 2021

Kinda out of the blue but with all the players asking for it and all issues the old Survival server had, we finally did it! That being said there's a new spawn now, a new Economy that will actually allow players to set up player shops, warps, and such.

We also started rolling out claim plugin updates, players can now inspect block logs in their claims and more, you should really check out /claim command :) For all the players who used to use /claim to make claims, there's still /makeclaim command.

Video Editor - Contest

Posted by NxDs6 months ago

Everyone who collaborates with video making receives coupons that can be used in our store or could be sold to other players.

We figured the best way to do this is to set up another video editing competition.

What do I do?

You need to download this archive that contains all the instructions, the script and links to the videos you need to edit: download
You MUST submit only the video requested and specified in the archive, you can't submit other works of yours.

Where do I submit?

Once you edited your video you need to send your submission here: https://forms.gle/8SGRJnt8BubLNHyh7

How much time do I have?

You have 15 days from now, the contest will end Sunday 25th October.

What do I win?

As reward for winning the competition, if you decide to join the team, you will receive a starting coupon worth 50€

Good luck thumbsup

SkyBlock Reset

Posted by NxDs6 months ago
You asked for it, begged for months, although we had other plans for SkyBlock we gave up and decided to reset sooner than we hoped person_shrugging
Despite everything we still managed to bring you some changes and extra features to keep things interesting.

New Levelling System

We came up with a solution that would let you level up and at the same time give you enough space to build a nice looking island with no compromises.
You now have /is addlevels, this will open an inventory in which you drop in Coal, Iron, Gold, Emerald, Redstone, Lapis, Quartz or Diamond blocks and they will be consumed and turned into points.

There is no need to place them on your island anymore.
But don't worry the old system still works, if you place them on your island they will still count too towards the final island level.

New Spawn and PvP

Our builders provided us with a brand new Spawn and PvP arena (Credits: BlueberryDaFloor, PlotChat and DaddyOmer)

Spawn

Scoreboard

SkyBlock will now have a sidebar showing useful info. You can toggle it in /sett if you like.

Scoreboard

New Economy

We tried to come up with a new economy that hopefully will keep things a bit more interesting and aim for a less AFK-focused gameplay.

New Starter Islands

You can select from a wide range of new starter islands based on different biomes when you start playing now.

Starter Island

Reworked Lottery

The old lottery was obviously too difficult, nobody would ever win so we reworked it entirely, we got rid of numbers and combinations and a winner is guaranteed to be selected twice a day.

You buy tickets to participate, the more you buy the higher the chances to win.
This change is not strictly related to SkyBlock, it will come everywhere starting from tomorrow.

Lobby Reset and Updates

Posted by NxDs6 months ago
It's been quite a while since the last time we touched our hub so here we are with some fancy changes, fixes and improvements.

Server NPCs and Spawn

Following the lead of some other servers we also added NPCs that will connect you to all our gamemodes, this will make it easier for newcomers to have an overview of what we offer without going through the selector menu. Also they just look cool. (Thanks to Ivri22 for the edits and improvements to the spawn area)

NPCs

Collectibles and Reset

We decided to rework the core of our lobby plugin and took the chance to start fresh and reset all the data of the past years so we could also apply some balance changes and fix some exploits that gave people infinite coins thinking_face

So collectibles got reset too, we also changed locations so don't worry about the old coords you saved somewhere as they won't help you.

Collectible

To spice up things a little bit this time the reward will be a little more fulfilling, in fact you will unlock the exclusive [LobbyExplorer] title that you will be able to use anywhere on the server, the title cannot be bought.


Lobby Explorer Title

Snake Trains

We found and fixed the Snake Trains that never made it to the public lobby, you can ride them and they'll show you the entire map.

Snake Train

Bug Fixes

Several bugs affecting the lobby since its release were also fixed as well as some false kicks from the anticheat.

BuildBattle, Pixel Art?

This is a side announcement regarding the latest BuildBattle, this time around the theme is Pixel Art.
We feel like we never gave enough love to all the players with skills in this building style and this will be an interesting change of pace.

Also we will be using the pixel arts in our next BedWars update that will be released in the next few days so your artworks might get officially featured on our server in some way wink
