Server NPCs and SpawnFollowing 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)
Collectibles and ResetWe 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
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.
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.
Snake TrainsWe 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.
Bug FixesSeveral 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.
This month we added 4 new maps, revamped/improved 4 maps and removed other 4 maps.
Improved MapsWe went over some of the old maps and made them more PvP friendly:
Removed MapsAnd here are the removed maps:
New Feedback System
We value your feedback so we added a new system that will occasionally ask you to rate maps between 1 and 5 whenever you end a game, this will help us tweak our buildings and figure out what you like and what you don't.
SurvivalGamesThis is a bit offtopic but we will soon start testing our new SurvivalGames that will not be pay-to-win and will share the core used in our BedWars
Who would have thought we'd come this far, as far as trying our best to update everything and manage to get a 1.16.1 server up and running for you to test.
The server is SurvivalPlus and it will be the spiritual successor of our current Testing, which will be closed in the next few weeks to be used for other projects such as new minigames and gamemodes.
SurvivalPlus will then be our guinea pigs of servers, receiving the latest cutting edge updates and changes that we're too afraid to release on other servers, the first biggest update we'll be testing will be the new Minecraft 1.16.1
How to join?Simply use /go survivalplus (or /go survivalp to save 3 whole letters) while being on a 1.16 or 1.16.1 or 1.16.2 client.
Why?We feel like it would be time to slowly transition to new versions and experiment with new features and content as we feel like 1.8 has been stagnating for way too long, this test is to see if the performances of the new version can keep up with our demands and gamemodes.
Bro, what about PvP?We added a plugin that reverts PvP to 1.8 style (spam click = you're good), however the blocking mechanic is missing so you will get to try out the new shield mechanics.
Why is X command missing?Updating plugins to versions past 1.12 is no joke, it requires time and effort and in the years we accumulated hundreds of thousands of lines of code that should be carefully checked and migrated.
Where is the shop?As stated in the previous section updating some plugins requires more time than one might expect, our shop plugin is one of them and for this reason we'll run this test without a proper economy. On the bright side the vote crate looks like this
What about my kits?For now there won't be any kit other than the starter kit, kit claim and kit basic. The true [Member] way.
Why is X not working?If you find bugs please report them here and we'll fix them as soon as possible: https://www.extremecraft.net/tickets/new/5/
And we're back.
For the fourth time we rework and reset prison, this time our main focus was to add enough features to keep things interesting but at the same time to not change too much the good old prison everyone likes.
BombsWe added bombs to ease your mining sessions, also they just look cool. There are several types of bomb and you can unlock them through crates or Lucky Blocks
Lucky BlocksIntroducing: LuckyBlocks. They randomly spawn in mines, hit them and they'll reward you with cool stuff.
Enhanced PickaxesForget those boring pickaxes you're used to, the new ones have XP and can be leveled up to unlock cool upgrades. It works with shears too.
Here's a comprehensive list of the other changes and features:
