Hey everyone!

This week we are bringing you our first major content update since revamp launch - the first of many. This announcement includes a variety of long awaited features, and we encourage you to read them in full detail below. We are constantly changing and making updates to the network, so it is advisable to check often for updates! Let's get started...

Player Shops
Our previously announced Player Shops feature has finally made its way onto the network. This is a huge game changer for the Skyblock Server and allows players to setup their entirely own economies to compete against one another.

In short, Player Shops is seen as a replacement for Chest Shops. You are able to create both [Buy] and [Sell] chests, with the added bonus that all of your shops are automatically added to a personal shop page available through the GUI. This GUI is extremely powerful and can be accessed using the /playershops command. The following options are available:
  • Shop Management: A list of all your player shops, with an extensive amount of settings
  • Shop List: A list of all shops, with a variety of sorting options to find what you want
  • Shop Settings: A variety of settings concerning your interaction with player shops
  • Shop Search: An extremely advanced search system that goes through all shops
  • ...and more!
We encourage you to check out this feature and get your own shops out on the market! As a buyer, you can easily find the cheapest price of an item you’d like to buy, which therefore makes this system extremely competitive (and easily accessible). You can create a shop by placing down a chest, and attaching a sign to it with [Buy] or [Sell] written on the first line.


Player Warps
We are staying in the world of community-driven features, with another introduction: Player Warps. From today on, it is possible to setup your own personal warps, and make them available for other players to teleport to on the server!

The Player Warps menu can be accessed from the /warps screen, or directly via /pwarps. From here, you can create your own personal warps, or search for other players to check out their warps. We are currently also working on a list feature with an extensive amount of sorting options, so you can hop around the server to visit completely random warps.


Server Voting
We have finally enabled voting on the server, and added an entirely new voting shop that can be accessed using /vote. Each vote on primemc.org/vote earns you tokens, which can then be spent on a selection of items, including: pouches, crate keys, kits, multipliers and ad tokens! If you are looking to support our server in return for some free items, this is the way to go! We have tried to setup competitively priced rewards, but are very open to your feedback!


Ad Watching
In addition to voting, we have also re-introduced our ad watching system! For those unfamiliar with this feature: It enables you to snatch up on our store packages without having to pay a single dollar! Instead, you will watch advertisements in return for ad tokens. If you have enough ad tokens, you can redeem them for items from our server store.

This entire functionality takes place from the /ads GUI. This menu also allows you to see how many tokens you currently have - and what packages you can use them towards (hint: it's pretty much everything).


New Game Passes
Over the last few days, we have introduced a variety of new game passes to the store. Some of these, you might have found on the server already, but in case you haven’t, I’ll list them all below! Most of these are unique new features only available on Prime!
  • Pickup Filter (All): Filter which items you are picking up from the ground
  • Speed Dial (All): Setup macros for quick access to certain commands
  • Chat Tags (All): Setup your very own and fully custom chat prefixes
  • Block Converter (All): Convert all of your ingots into their block variants
  • Game Mechanics (Skyblock): Speed up Redstone, Hoppers and Pistons
Super Items
Also new to our store, is the return of Super Items! We have completely revamped this category and added over 20 new items with awesome custom enchantments! These enchantments will soon be available to the general public, but are exclusive to Super Items until that functionality is released. The following Custom Enchantments are currently available on Super Items, with more to come very soon:
  • Scotopia: Receive permanent Night Vision whilst wearing an item with this enchant
  • Elasticity: Receive permanent Jump Boost whilst wearing an item with this enchant
  • Accelerated: Receive permanent Speed whilst wearing an item with this enchant
  • Enduring Breath: Receive permanent Water Breathing whilst wearing an item with this enchant
  • Molten Core: Receive permanent Fire Resistance whilst wearing an item with this enchant
  • Strike: Receive the chance of striking your opponent with an extra amount of attack damage
  • Vampiric: Receive the chance of stealing hearts from an enemy upon hit
  • Myopia: Receive the chance of giving your enemies a temporary Blindness effect

I am excited for this update and all future updates to come. The revamp didn’t have the best start with all the lag. Things got fixed fairly quickly and we are already seeing new things added.

I bought a plot mine when it was glitched, how do I get it?
I made a purchase support and Bions said that he would reply when it was fixed... it’s fixed and he didn’t reply

Bions is currently on vacation I believe he’s getting back sometime this week. When he gets back I’m sure he will be going through the purchase support threads

I just hope this stuff can be balanced unlike SB 4.0. The features look great - but how they fit in is another story.

Nice, though.

I bought it the first week and I’m kinda just getting mad that others have it now even though I bought it before them

I feel like you have to watch too many ads to actually be able the receive am item and it stops you from watching more add at a certain point making it's utterly impossible to even earn them in the first place

And just like that, no one will enter PvP for pure entertainment. As many OG’s and PvPers on Prime previously said, they hate custom enchants being added for PvP purposes. Bugger.
