With a new season comes a brand new spawn! Check it out below:
Factions Store Revamp
We have made a series of significant changes to the Factions gamemode in regards to store bought items giving an advantage to players that purchased them. We have removed all products that we used to sell on the Factions section of our server store, and these items can now be found in-game via the Mob Coin Shop, Events or the brand new Dungeons - all of which are features that are accessible to everyone.
We've also added some cosmetic items to the store that you can purchase if you wish - these items do not give any advantage in-game and are purely cosmetic. This includes different types of trails including particles, wings, block trails and rains. You can find them in the Trails section on the server store, and can edit them in-game using /trails.
Find out about the changes we have made to revamp the Factions store that allows us to follow Mojang's more-lenient commercial guidelines in the article below.
For this map of Amber, we have changed our set of rules to suit a more "Anarchy" type map, with the majority of the major rules being removed.
- Due to the Anarchy type rule changes, we will be increasing the Dispenser Limit to 3,500.
You can view the rest of the rules for this map of Amber here:
- We have specifically stated that any cannon creating more than a 5-wide hole on standard watered walls is prohibited.
- Bow Boosting will be enabled.
- We will be increasing the chunk buffer size back to 20 chunks.
- Death Bans while raiding and in PvP worlds will remain for this map.
- We will be putting a limit on the maximum power a faction can have to 4000. We hope that this helps factions not become overclaimed when a player leaves the faction.
- You can now throw Enderpearls through open fence gates.
- We will be updating the color of the name tags above your head if you have a special rank like Cupid.
- We will be adding back /f spectate for public use.
- You can now use /hub whilst in Printer mode.
- We have changed how you define the area for /sandy - instead of selecting 2 corners, it will print under the selected block (the default will be any wool block) as long as it is close enough to the Sandy NPC.
- When you first use an Infusion 2 pickaxe, it will automatically change the pickaxe to efficiency 10.
- Due to the bow boosting change, we will be moving the exit of Mycelium from near /warp PvP to /warp Arena. As well as this we will be modifying the Legendary rewards in the Monthly Dungeons and rewards obtained from the Raid Event, Raiding Outpost & FvF Event.
- We will be decreasing the roster size to 35.
- Nether Stars will remain at the high sell price of $6,000 per Nether Star.
- Fishing will remain as an alternative economy source to sugarcane with fishing in the safe lake the equivalent of grinding sugarcane.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Amber reset!
