MineCarsYou can now race against others on our new MineCars! To use them you need to /vote or be a Hero+ rank. Any minecart is a MineCar, just ride it and drive away
MarriagesWe're stepping up our roleplay here, you can now marry other players with /marry!
Spawn and PvPOur builders provided us with a brand new Spawn and a brand new PvP arena
VotingVoting is now worth more! Each vote will grant you 1 hour of WorldEdit, 1 hour of /ase (more on this below), 1 hour of MineCars usage as well as the usual heads and money.
ParkourProve your worth at /parkour, we prepared for you
New Rank ColorsWe are working on a load of changes and updates, among others we would also like to change the colors of our donor ranks so that each rank could have its own unique color, for this we would like your opinion so vote here which color combination you like the most https://www.extremecraft.net/polls/
Chat GamesThis one has been requested since quite a bit of time, you will start seeing chat games now every hour or so, the classics "Unscramble the word", "Math question" and "Type the following" (we're open to suggestions for more games you'd like to see)
Video Editor ApplicationsWe are looking for Video Editors! You can apply for the position here
New PvP KnockbackThis is also something a lot of you have been suggesting since a while, we now changed the knockback values on all the gamemodes based on your valuable feedback provided on /go pvp, the changes are effective everywhere starting from now
1.17 PlansYes, 1.17 when. We are waiting for 1.17 Minecraft (set to release around mid year), after that it will be a couple of weeks wait time for the server version to be released and once that's out we'll try to reset and update SurvivalPlus to that
Anvil Color PreviewReally minor quality of life update but, if you have a rank that lets you, when you try to color items in anvil you will see the live preview of what the name will be instead of seeing the ugly & everywhere
Rules Less StrictWe're trying to correct our aim and improve our rules and punishments, for this reason we slightly changed the punishments issued in some cases and we will also be less strict when it comes to handling ban appeals.
Party LimitsWe're trying to address the issue of big parties in PvP without also affecting everyone else so from now on friendly fire will be automatically toggled on when there are 30 or more party members online
Did you know...?This section is for the forgotten features that we never announced that I come across and that I feel deserve their own mention
Tomorrow there will be a surprise for all the Creative players... Not 1.17, not yet sorry.
Factions reset is finally here! Due to a few last-minute bugs (player power, wilderness, etc) we had to delay reset a bit :( That being said the are quite a few changes, you should start by checking out new, updated rules for the Factions server: https://www.extremecraft.net/rules/details/
There are also some new features, over the past few days we already added SandBots, which can now be used on Factions, OpFactions, and Cannoning server. The changes on Factions server...

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.
New Spawn and PvPOur builders provided us with a brand new Spawn and PvP arena (Credits: BlueberryDaFloor, PlotChat and DaddyOmer)
ScoreboardSkyBlock will now have a sidebar showing useful info. You can toggle it in /sett if you like.
New EconomyWe 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 IslandsYou can select from a wide range of new starter islands based on different biomes when you start playing now.
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.
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/

2nd place - Emili_a (/p v -195;-10)

4th place - dreamier (/p v -199;71)

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:
