Hey everyone!

Welcome back to yet another update. This week’s, we’ve got lots of new stuff to cover from all areas of the network!
So without any further ado, let’s jump right into it.

Mailing System (Global)
Upon request, we have recently added a cross-server mailing system. This new feature enables you to send messages to players across the network, without the need for them to actually be online! Via the /mail command, you will be able to send and receive these mail messages, as well as delete your old entries. We hope this makes communicating with your fellow friends a tad bit easier!


New Multiplier System (Prison)
Prison has just received a new Multiplier system! Now, it is possible to own both permanent and time-based Multipliers. Permanent Multipliers can be purchased from the store, while time-based Multipliers are earned through a variety of in-game activities. Activities range from opening MineCrates to redeeming Prestige Kits. And the best part? The multipliers stack on top of each other!

An example: Players with a permanent 4x multiplier, can temporarily increase their multiplier to a 6x, by redeeming a 2x time-based multiplier! The implementation of this system also means that all Multiplier Notes and Crates will now work properly again. We thank you for your patience. You can always view your current Multiplier status by issuing the /multiplier command in-game.


Veteran Tag (Forums)
We know there are still some OGs out there! As part of a previous suggestion, we wanted to give you guys some extra love and recognition for being such long-time supporters! And therefore, we have issued almost 4000 Veteran tags to forum members registered prior to 2016. We thank you for your continued support and sticking with us for such a long time!


eTokens Update (Prison)
Last week, we held a poll to see what your thoughts were on implementing new Vanilla Enchantments on Prison. Thanks to your votes, we have now made the decision to implement these onto the server. I would like to highlight a couple of changes, as more updates have been made to the tokens system other than just new enchantments:
  • Updated Name: Enchantment Tokens have now been officially renamed to eTokens, and all branding has been reflected as such. Your existing physical token items will continue to work.
  • Token Board: Two new side areas have been added to the token board over at /warp tokens. In this area you will be able to find the new Vanilla enchantments!
  • Milestones: Milestones have been added, which will periodically give you a set of eTokens once upon achieving a pre-defined amount of blocks mined (i.e. Mining 50k blocks will give you 200 eTokens,...).
  • Recurring Rewards: In addition to Milestones, we have now also implemented recurring token rewards. For every 2000 blocks mined, players will receive 2 eTokens.
  • Voting Updates: A new category has been added to the /vote menu, where you will be able to exchange your vote tokens for eTokens. The prices on these have been made fairly low, and we hope that this makes it more rewarding for players to vote!
  • Kits: The amount of eTokens received from free kits has been slightly adjusted to compensate for these new changes.
Keep an eye out on the token board, as we have more exciting plans in the works in the coming weeks!


Bounties (Skyblock)
Bounties have made their way to Skyblock! This system is similar to the one that is currently running on Prison and Factions, and will be a temporary solution until our entirely new and custom bounty system is up and running. Keep an eye out! And be careful out there in PvP!


Updates to stacking (Global)
We have made server-wide tweaks to our mob stacking system. Now, monsters will stack from further away (7 blocks), and can also combine more monsters into one stack (up to 100 from 20). In addition to this, we have updated the maximum number of monsters allowed in a chunk from 10, up to 12. We hope that this continues to make grinding easier!

Spawn Updates (Skyblock)
Our Skyblock Spawn has received a small update! Now, when you enter the spawn, you can spot a huge new portal which should shoot you straight into the server menu! This makes it convenient for new players to get started with their Skyblock Experience! In addition to this, a new Cobblestone Generator example has been added right behind the NPC area in the spawn.


New Vote Pricing (Global)
We have recently updated our Vote Token shop with a selection of new items, as well as updated pricing. We realised that the existing prices were too high, and have adapted them to be more approachable to players. We hope that you enjoy these changes, as we continue to make adjustments to voting. We would also like to hear your opinion on a recent voting suggestion, more information can be found more here.

Server Store Updates (Global)
We have made some slight updates to the server store. The Pouches section now sells mcMMO and XP Pouches on Survival, Prison and Factions, in addition to Skyblock where they were available previously. And on top of this, players on our Prison server can now purchase eTokens in the store for use on custom enchantments!

Shop Update (Global)
We have updated the in-game shop across all of our servers, and processed some important changes. Check out the list below to see what’s new:
  • Revamped Spawner Prices: We have completely revamped all of our spawner prices in the store. In the past, spawners were priced based on the rarity of the mob, however we realise that this is not a realistic price scheme. Spawners are now priced depending on the value of the drops that each spawner generates.
  • Flowers Update: We have updated the Flowers & Plants section of the shop, so that they can now be sold to the server. Cobwebs can now also be bought and sold from the shop.
  • Updated Shulker Boxes: We have updated the pricing of Shulker Boxes on Survival as per a recent suggestion.
  • New Dyes: We have added dyes to the Colored Blocks section of the store as per a player suggestion.
  • Bedrock: Bedrock has been removed from all stores (except on Factions)
Other (Global)
Below are some of our recent bug fixes. Check them out!
  • Skyblock: Fixed an issue where TreeAssist no longer functioned
  • Skyblock: Increased the lava and water speed
  • Skyblock: Increased the Efficiency on the Silk Pickaxe to Efficiency X
  • All: Fixed the /repair command triggering a cooldown for /fix
  • All: Fixed an issue where it was possible to purchase stacked bows
  • Prison: Fixed an issue where the VIP shop was showing up twice in /shop
  • Prison: Fixed an issue issue with prestiging for admins and through using rank notes
  • Factions: Fixed an issue with incorrect flower pricing
  • Factions: Fixed the issues with gen buckets not working
  • Factions: Fixed an issue with votes not being announced
  • Hub: Fixed an issue with auto broadcast messages not being displayed
  • Website: Fixed an issue where links in the footer bar would not work
  • Website: Fixed an issue where mutes were not showing on the bans page
  • Store: Fixed an issue where the enter username page was missing sidebar icons
  • Store: Fixed an issue issue where ranks were being credited to old usernames
  • Store: Fixed a variety of typo's across the store packages
And that's it for this week guys! Be sure to take advantage of that Black Friday SALE, as today is the last day! Let us know if you are planning on picking anything up using the comments below. Code BLACKFRIDAY also still has a few uses left!

Thanks,
Jesse

I'm sorry to say this but genbuckets still DON"T WORK.
You will have to re-purchase gen buckets from the new /genbuckets store.

I might not had read it correctly but have you fixed the issues where bows were called swords in the prison kits?.
Unaware of that. I'll write it down to take a look at :)

you said you fixed typos yet you said "issue" 2 times on the 2nd store update
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Nope, we'll write that down :)
